Fantastic Rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful long weekend staying at this house for our daughter's college graduation. Arrived to find fresh fruit, flowers and pound cake! Christina was very responsive and even brought us extra chairs and a table for us to host our large group for dinner. Well-stocked with linens, toiletries, charcoal grill, plenty of serving dishes - everything needed to be comfortable! We especially enjoyed having dinner outside one night, using the private back patio area and fire pit. Absolutely recommend this lovely home!

Sensational visit to a terrific city!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely, and beautifully equipped home for a week. The owner Christina provided a thoughtful, clean and classy environment. It was just two of us and our beloved small French Bull dog. Garden birds, jacuzzi tub, fireplace, and cook's dream kitchen allowed us to share the most wonderful Christmas. We loved the maps, explored all that was close by and are considering a permanent move here. And Indochine restaurant is Amazing. Next time we will rent out the additional studio and bring friends and or family.

Everything you need here, us and all our guests were completely comfortable for 5 weeks

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect; There is something about it that as soon as we walked in we felt at home. My family stayed for 5 weeks, we were here for my school and my family was on an extended summer vacation in Wilmington! We had 3 rounds of houes guests from 40-75 years old and everyone LOVED the house.

We packed a little too much; the house has everything! Someone could totally grab a bathing suit and come here for a vacation and be completely comfortable! (IE I found scissors, a pad of paper, kitchen staples and some tape and other random "homey" items... first aid supplies, and plenty of soaps and household supplies)

It isn't just that the house HAS everything, but the items within the house are *NICE* quality: jaczuzzi tub is brand and PERFECT (some Epsom salt there for a soak!), towels are nice and fluffy, pillows feel new, window blinds are well made and offer a lot of privacy.

Kitchens had absolutely everything we needed: good knives, crock pot, mixer, fancy coffee pot that grinds the beans, baking items, plenty of gorgeous dining, storage, and serving ware.

I got nervous when I walked into the spare bathroom- I thought, where am I going to put my stuff? But every mirror has *DEEP* cabinets behind it! I had plenty of room for all my things and my family didn't have to look at it! Now I want to do this to my own bathroom at home!

Anything we needed from the owners was provided. They were super accomidating to us from start to finish.

We actually stayed in the smaller bedroom near our daughters room and gave the master bedroom to our guests, this worked out great for us. The master bedroom is away from the others and the living area. I'm told by my guests it was nice and quiet.

The yard is lovely. The playground/slide out front was nice to have (a community playground is .25 miles away, just behind the house!). The yard is lovely. It was a bit too hot outside during our visit to really appreciate the patio. We did BBQ a lot, however! *Loved* The outside shower! No sand inside after the beach!

Wilmington is a wonderful fun place for a family. We hit most of the top rated places in Wilmington with cheaper prices and didn't have a bad experience. We had so many activities to do with our daughter in Wilmington! The beach was about 15 minutes away in the traffic.

We fell in love with Wilmington and plan to move there and I will definately check to see if the Carslile houes is available when we come house-hunting.

Even better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful home for our family to attend our daughter's graduation. First, the owners were awesome and provided us not only with the comforts of home, but much more. This home, and it truly is a home, has everything from the perfectly landscaped private backyard for a great graduation party to all the accessories to host it! We could not have asked for a better setting for our weekend. The inside is open and spacious with large windows to view the lush yard. Plenty of comfortable seating for all, high end appliances and beautiful decorations.

Above and beyond our expectations and wonderful host and hostess! Thank you for letting us enjoy your beautiful home.

Christmas in WIlmington, NC

  • 5 of 5

WOW! We spent six weeks in Wilmington over Christmas holidays and the month of January. Our stay at this location was wonderful! The property was wonderful. Not only very, very comfortable, but nicely kept, clean and nicely decorated. Kitchen contained everything needed, not just essentials! We even baked Christmas cookies! Beds super comfortable, cable TV in all rooms, washer and dryer, linens, and comfortable furniture! The property is fenced, and we were able to bring our dogs The landscaping and yard are great and the back patio area is a nice extra that we would have used, but didn't schedule the time in our busy six weeks. Ample parking and close to the downtown area and the beach. Also close to highway so easy to leave Wilmington for all the regional history. The owners were delightful and worked to make our stay delightful. I would highly recommend this location if your are visiting Wilmington. You can't go wrong and your stay will be super. This is truly a 'home away from home.' Five stars for the hospitality, the property, all the amenities, location, price and the owners!
