Those two lots are located at Market and 2nd St. or Water and Princess St. We recommend parking at Market and 2nd since it is a little closer to the unit. There is also ample meter parking and it's free from the hours of 6:30pm-9:30am and all day on Sunday.
My husband and I would often take long weekends visiting the beach during the day and go into Historic Downtown Wilmington for the evening. We love the charm Downtown has to offer and all the fantastic places to eat. When we found this unit, we knew it was perfect for us and also decided to rent it out and use it for us and our family.
Jaime or Tim purchased this condo in 2007
We felt this unit was one of the best locations located in Historic Downtown being on the river and having the ability to walk to everything! There is always something going on. I love walking the Farmers Market and it goes on almost year round. We take very good care of our unit and have been very lucky to have had such great renters. We make sure to keep the unit comfortable for people when they rent with us by putting higher end linens, towels and tasteful furnishings. We wanted it to be a place we could enjoy and for others that stay with us too. We love to get feedback on the unit and always hope that everyone enjoys their stay with us!
Location, location, location! You step outside your door and you are in the middle of it all: the board walk, cafe's, restaurants, art galleries, local history and relaxation. We love getting up early, grabbing a cup of coffee from the Cape Fear Bakery, that is in Chandler's Wharf, and walking up and down the boardwalk. Thinking about it again, it's hard to beat watching the sunset over the river and eating at Elijah's too!
My husband & I recently stayed here for a long weekend for our son's college graduation and we were looking for a quaint little get away for ourselves in the process. This loft was perfect! Location was fabulous- right across the street from the beautiful Riverwalk on the Cape Fear river. This is walking distance to cafes, gift shops and night life - or simply enjoy the quaintness of being in the lovely historic downtown Wilmington! Thanks- perfect fit for us;
The owners were very professional and accommodating. They definitely make that extra effort to make their rental as comfortable as possible for their guests. I would not hesitate to book with them again. Thanks so much Jaime and Tim!
My wife and I stayed there for the PPD Triathlon. Convenient to restaurants, shops, boardwalk, convention center...and most importantly, the 70.3 finish line! :)
We will come back here. Right on water, great parking for just $7 next door. Easy to load/unload.
A friend and I recently stayed here for a vacation in Wilmington. The loft is so cute and nicely decorated. It felt like a cozy home-away-from-home. The location is great, easy walking distance for going downtown at night and walking, shopping etc. during the day. It is an easy drive to Wrightsville beach (~20 minutes). Only complaint is that some dishes were not very clean, but this was an easy fix. Also, note that the ceiling is very low where the bed is, I didn't realize how low it was from these pictures. However, I would still recommend the loft to friends and would certainly choose to stay here again next time I am in Wilmington!
The location is wonderful and we could walk everywhere, leaving the car parked. The cautions I would give to potential renters; 1) the bed up in the loft it a mattress on slatts that frequently fall off the frame. I slept poorly, wondering if the bed would fall apart each time I moved...more than a few times it did. 2) climbing up and down from the loft is a steep, (hands and feet) set of steps. This loft should not be considered for anyone with even a tiny bit of instability or balance issues.
This loft is located right across the street from the riverfront and is really close to downtown Wilmington and all the shops and restaurants, the location couldn't have been better. The inside of the loft was nice and clean with a roomy living area, serviceable kitchen, and even a washer/dryer (located in the bathroom). The lofted bedspace has a pretty low ceiling so be careful not to hit your head! Overall a great place to stay and use as your base of operations while you explore Wilmington.
Steps away from Elijah's, The George, Art Galleries, Boutiques and Chandler's Wharf. The unit is a gated complex with many options to park near by. The unit is about 15 minutes from Wrightsville Beach. You also have the option to take a ferry over to Bald Head Island from SouthPort or go deep sea fishing at Carolina Beach.
Did you know that Wilmington is considered the Hollywood of the East! If you have time, make sure to tour Screen Gems Studios. If it's a rainy day, we have the box set of DAWSONS CREEK in the unit along with other DVD's. In Downtown Wilmington there are many things to do, carriage rides, museums, ferry rides, fine dining and plenty of night life. Enjoy your day at the beach, come back and refresh so you can walk throughout Downtown Wilmington.
