  • Wilmington NC 24’


    Property was very clean, well kept and close to downtown. The location was ok (which is out of owner control) but the rear driveway is beneficial for safe entry into property and keeps your vehicle off the street.

  • Cute downtown Wilmington House !!


    We stayed at the property with a group of friends for a concert we attended. Our uber driver to the concert was a short 5 minutes ! The house is super cute and clean. Directions for check in and out are very clear and easy. Location is good as far as it’s great access to lots of places in Wilmington but the neighborhood of the house was our only complaint !

    Hi Brittany, thanks for the wonderful review! We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed our cute house and had a fantastic stay overall. Regarding the neighborhood, it's a factor outside our control, but we do provide a map on the listing so our guests can research the area before booking.
    We wish you the best on your future travels!

  • Worth staying in for a family


    Only problem I had was that I am 70 years old and my phone is not able to receive text so when our daughter arrived she sent a message from her phone to get the code for entry. Just something all of the people on Vrbo should be aware of and ask the question before they assume that everyone has that capability on their phones. Other than that it was a very nice, clean home.

    From the owner: "Hi Susan, thank you for choosing our home for your stay and for bringing this important issue to our attention. We're glad to hear that you found the home nice and clean. Regarding the entry code, we appreciate your feedback on the communication method, but glad we were able to get the access code to you promptly. We typically send codes via text for security purposes as they change with each guest, but we understand this may not be suitable for everyone. We will certainly consider how we can better accommodate all our guests' needs in the future."

    Location was key. So close to downtown. I saved on ubers being able to walk. House is very clean. Coffee bar was well stocked with options too. 3 bathrooms made life very convenient. I would stay here again.
