Great Location

  • of 5

The highlight of this rental was definitely the location. It was convenient walking to downtown in a nice neighborhood that was reasonably quiet. We got off to a rocky start as the heat wasn't working when we arrived resulting in a rather chilly couple of days until it got fixed. To the owner's credit he promptly called a repairman as soon as I contacted him the morning after we arrived. Of course it would have been nice to vacation without having to coordinate with an hvac guy who arrived promptly at my son's nap time two days in a row. More upsetting though was that when the heat got fixed a gritty black dust blew out of all the vents and onto our stuff (I think we must have been the first people to use the heat this winter and once it blew out the gunk it was ok). I was also hoping the owner would get the quite dirty air filter replaced before we left but hopefully he has corrected that now. Overall the house was otherwise reasonably clean. We had to fish some toys from under the furniture though and those recesses were quite covered in pet hair, dust, and dead bugs. The tub was also slow to drain and the kitchen sink dripped incessantly. Linens were comfortable and plentiful and kitchen cookware and utensils well-stocked. Furniture was nice and in good condition. The roku and sound systems were a nice touch.

Best value and location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. The location is perfect for exploring Wilmington and partaking in the night life. We parked the cars when we arrived and didn't drive again until it was time to leave. We found everything we needed to cook several meals at home in the kitchen. The dining area and living room were plenty comfortable for 4 adults. We appreciated the Roku for watching a few movies. The beds and linens were very comfortable. Excellent value for a weekend away.

This place is so convenient to downtown and the historic, beautiful houses of Wilmington. We really enjoyed our visit, especially since we could bring our dog. We look forward to staying there again!

Great location!

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our 2 kids (age 2 and 6). Overall, we enjoyed our stay in Wilmington and found alot of fun things to do. The condo was a good place to stay overall, mainly because of the location. Here's a breakdown of pro's and con's.

Pro's - The location is perfect, at least for what we wanted to do. It's a block away from the kid's museum, which we just loved. We were there for over 3 hours and our kids still didn't get to do everything there. The very friendly director of the museum was walking around meeting everyone and checking on the exhibits. It's also a block or 2 away from The Little Dipper, an excellent fondue restaurant. Just a few blocks away from many other shops and restaurants : The Peppered Cupcake on Front Street for amazing cupcakes; Front St Brewery for really good affordable beer and food; Wilmington Water Tours on the riverwalk for fun river cruises; and just 20-30 mins away from beaches and the NC Aquarium. The condo is also in a nice quiet area with other nice homes. There's the usual city noise like buses, etc but not late at night. The condo itself has very comfortable beds, soft sheets, lots of towels, nice artwork, working appliances, great A/C, a very comfortable leather couch, DVD player and nice theater system with Roku. Steve is also really nice to work with.

Con's: The condo could definitely use a good cleaning, especially under the beds and furniture. The rugs in the bedrooms were covered in dog hair and dander. Also, the smoke alarm wasn't working and since there's just 1 way out and it's on the second floor, this was also concerning and I would imagine a huge liability. These things are really very easy to take care of and I think they could greatly improve someone's stay here. It's an upstairs unit and the stairs open up to the main hallway and living area, so if you have really little ones, you'll need to bring a baby gate. Not the owner's responsibility - just a heads up if you plan on bringing small kids.

Great Location for Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Steve was great to deal with whenever we needed anything. The location is great and very close to downtown (3 blocks). It is also only 1 block to the riverwalk. The house was clean and plenty big for our week vacation. We LOVED the cookware set and access to netflix. We felt very safe staying here and would HIGHLY recommend this location for any travelers. Thanks for a great place to stay Steve, we will be back.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

I just finished a 3 month stay in this great apartment. Steve the owner was great throughout. If I had any issues he was very quick to respond and always very nice. Living downtown was great. Walking everywhere and especially to the many incredible restaurants in the downtown area was amazing. The view from the living room of the river was very peaceful. Parking on the street was also very convenient. In the three months I was there I never had a problem parking directly in from of the building. The entertainment system with cable, roku and sound system was a great bonus. I highly recommend this apartment for anyone alone or with a family for any length of stay.
