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.

Owner's Response: These folks pointed out to me that the smoke detector wasn't working when they left and I've replaced it. Thanks for your suggestions.

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.

GREAT LOCATION But needs TLC

  • 2 of 5
STAYED FOR 5 DAYS BUT WERE CHARGED FOR FULL WEEK RATE, OWNER WAS PLEASANT TO DEAL WITH AND LOCATION WAS GREAT BUT THE HOME IS IN DISREPAIR AND DIRTY WE SAW SEVERAL LARGE PALMETTO BUGS AND WE WERE EVEN ASKED IF WE COULD HAVE THE OWNER STEVEN SHOW THE PLACE TO A "LONG TERM RENTER " WHILE WE WERE VACATIONING. IF YOU ARE looking for a great location this is it but the place needs a fair bit of TLC IT IS A LOVELY LOCATION BUT THIS IS MORE OF A BUDGET CONSCIOUS RENTAL RATHER THAN A HIGH END RENTAL, SO JUST BE AWARE OF THAT WHEN LOOKING TO BOOK

Owner's Response: I charged you the weekly rate because it was less than the amount you would have owed for 5 nights at the daily rate. If you will compare my rates to other area 2 bedroom units on VRBO you'll find that we are priced at the lower end of the scale, not the luxury end. When someone takes into account the savings of occasionally making their own meals, and keeping the family pet with them rather than sending it to doggie prison while they're enjoying themselves, they'll find that compared to a cramped and generic motel room these units are great values, as they are intended to be, and as the rates are intended to reflect. I asked your permission to show the property, you declined. End of story.

Christmas vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived to a nice welcome by Steve (owner). The apartment was just as described, nice & clean! The beds are very comfortable, nice sheets, lots of towels. The kitchen has very nice professional grade cookware! The living room has a nice leather sectional sofa and nice leather chair! We were only one block from the water, very nice to walk on the boardwalk or from the door of apt. You are only 3 blocks from center of historic downtown! We are planning on moving from Alabama to Wilmington NC, so we can be in a nice town to walk to so many things to do and enjoy. Our son is a Marine stationed in Jacksonville NC (Only child)! We definitely would stay again & highly recommend this vacation rental. Steve is very easy to reach and was very easy to rent from! Thanks again for sharing your apt for our Christmas!

Owner's Response: Thank you Cindy for taking the time to comment. And thanks for noticing the cookware! I'm a cook myself and I couldn't stand the idea of putting lousy cookware in the place. If having a kitchen, and being able to cook meals, is part of the value of the property, the kitchen needs to be reasonably well equipped. Thanks again, and come back any time.
