This charming bungalow cottage home was built in 1926 and is located in the desirable neighborhood of Carolina Place in Downtown Wilmington on Wrightsville Avenue. This location allows you to stay in a historic residential neighborhood with its sidewalks, front porches and mix of older and thoughtfully restored homes.
Within walking distance is the White Front Breakfast House, Port City Java, Burnt Mill Creek Tavern, Southern Breakfast Cafe, and a lush neighborhood park. You are approximately one mile (a $5 or so Uber ride) from Front and Market Streets and the Cape Fear River where downtown Wilmington restaurants and shopping awaits AND only 7 miles away (approx. 12 minutes) from beautiful Wrightsville Beach.
Interesting tidbit.....located just two doors down is the home featured on the TV show One Tree Hill where the character played by Chad Michael Murray lived!!
This 2 bedroom - 2 full bath home features original hardwood floors throughout, 9-foot ceilings with ceiling fans in both bedrooms and living room as well as convenient off-street parking for up to two cars....which is VERY rare for the Downtown area. The front porch with Southern swing, ceiling fan and rocking chair is a perfect spot for reading a book or chatting with neighbors. The back porch provides a more intimate spot for morning coffee or an evening cocktail. The master bedroom features a queen bed with an en-suite bathroom containing a claw foot tub/shower and a generous walk-in closet. The second bedroom affords a beautiful antique full-sized bed. There is no need to bring or rent linens or towels because plush bath towels and 300-count cotton sheets are provided.
This home is a perfect blend of antiques and modern eclecticism. The spacious living room has ample seating for all guests with an HD Smart TV with local antenna, Roku and free Wi-Fi. The dining room has a stunning chandelier, a fancy bar cart, and comfortable seating for 4. If you wish, feel free to use the table linens in the tiger-oak buffet to prepare for that special meal. The kitchen includes a dishwasher, double-sided refrigerator with ice maker, Keurig coffee pot, toaster, microwave, and is stocked with items you will need should you wish to cook during your getaway. If needed, there is a HE full-size LG washer and dryer.
Pets considered - We consider our pets as family and wouldn’t dream of traveling without them. This home was furnished with pets in mind from the fenced-in front yard that allows your fur-friend to run and play to the minimal carpeting throughout the home, down to the plush leather living room furnishings. There is even a portable pet gate available for your use if needed. Note: Please provide a sheet or blanket if your pet will cuddle up with you either on the leather sofa or on the bed.
Whether you are visiting Wilmington for beaching, golfing, shopping, antiquing, exploring, fishing, biking or just to get away from the daily grind....this home is the perfect location for your Wilmington stay! We hope you will love our home as much as we do!!!!!!

About Dena Claire Daniels
I have lived in North Carolina all of my life (minus a short few years in Atlanta). Restoring homes has always been my passion. This home has my heart and I look forward to retiring here from Raleigh, NC in the very near future!
Dena Claire Daniels purchased this Bungalow in 2015
Why Dena Claire Daniels chose Wilmington
In addition to the idyllic neighborhood, the historic home from 1926 spoke to me when I first walked in the front door. It was the perfect size; the perfect craftsman - cottage - bungalow look. Most important of all...I could restore it back to its glory. It had not been stripped to its studs. It still retained the original windows, floors, interior French doors and wood doors and hardware. When I walked outside onto the porch, there were neighbors across the street introducing themselves to me.....I knew this was the place!!! My home is still a work in progress; so, please excuse its quirks and imperfections...Thank you for your love of older homes!!
What makes this Bungalow unique

Wilmington is a great University and Cosmopolitan city with Southernrefinement.
Carolina Place is a great location, I found everything I needed within 10 miles. The Cape Fear area has great water scener and dockside eating. The lovely home is in a National Historic Dist, that has beautiful rehabs and restoring Craftman Cottages and Queen Anne style with front porch living. Dena's home is a designer showcase but we felt really at home with plenty of room. Communication and concern were excellent. I respected her home as if it was my own.
Richard! I am so glad you all enjoyed your Wilmington visit! It really is a fabulous town!! Please let me know if you plan another trip back...would LOVE to have you all back!! You were absolute wonderful Guests!!!! Thanks again!!~~Dena
Charming and Immaculate
All the attention given to the details in this home made our stay truly a pleasure. We felt as though we were in our own home...What cold be better than that! And the Homeowner was very attentive to our needs. Due to the snow...we could not enjoy the darling front porch but inside was toasty and comfortable and lovely in every way! Looking forward to next time.
Thank you so much for your kind words. I feel the same way you do when I spend time there. Gracious! I still CANNOT believe Wilmington had so much snow during your visit! That NEVER happens!! Looking forward to the next time you need lodging....happy to assist you! Safe Travels and stay warm!!!!
Kindest Regards, Dena Daniels
Perfection! Loved our stay! Will be back!
Perfect home for our family holiday. Everything we needed, beautiful decor, and the bed was so comfortable we didn't want to get up in the morning. We will be back!
I am thrilled you and your family enjoyed your Wilmington visit and your stay in my home! I do hope you will return for another stay soon!! You were wonderful Guests!

Great weekend getaway!
Lovely two bedroom home close to downtown. Perfect for a few days away and visiting with friends. Home had everything we needed for a perfect stay.
Thank you for being such WONDERFUL Guests and for the wonderful review! I am glad you enjoyed your stay! I do hope you will consider my home on your next Wilmington getaway....Wilmington in the Spring is AMAZING!!! Again, thank you for taking time out to review my home and your stay!!!
Sweet bungalow in a super location.
Oh my! What a little gem!
My sister and I selected this rental for a sisters' long weekend retreat. Charming, comfortable decor and furnishings. Comfortable beds. The kitchen was adequately stocked with cooking utensils, dishes, etc. We procured food supplies at the nearby Whole Foods in order to prepare our own breakfast each morning, although if one was inclined to do more cooking there, I'm certain it could be managed quite easily. The dining room was set up with a beautiful table, sideboard, and bar cart, so one could enjoy some beautiful meals there, if desired. There were numerous thoughtful touches throughout the home to help make our stay comfortable and enjoyable.
The neighborhood was filled with people visiting one another, walking their dogs, waving to us...very friendly group. One evening, the weather was pleasant enough to sit out on the front porch in the rocking chair and porch swing. It brought back some very pleasant childhood memories to watch and listen as the neighbors conversed happily on their front porches. We felt safe and welcomed.
The location was handy to every activity we had planned downtown or on the beach. We couldn't have picked a better base from which to execute our intended itinerary. Highly recommend Harbour Club Day Spa and Salon at Lumina Station for massages, facials, and hair styling, a little shopping at nearby Airlie Moon, followed by dinner at the Port Land Grille (all located within Lumina Station). Also check out the fabulous food at Indochine (only about a mile or so from the house) and visit Blockade Runner in Wrightsville Beach for Sunday brunch followed by a walk along the beach.
Regretfully, we had to end our little retreat and leave this sweet little jewel. We are trying to find a way to schedule another stay here, and can't wait until we are able to make it back.
WOW!!! Thank you for taking the time to write such an informative review!! I am glad that you and your sister had such a great time! I am envious of your getaway as it has been a long time since my sister and I have had a Wilmington getaway.....just the two of us!!!
If you guys ever are in need of another Wilmington getaway, please let me know!!!
Thanks for being such WONDERFUL Guests!!!!!! ~~ Dena
