About Natalie David

We are a family of five currently living in California.

Natalie David purchased this house in 2004

Why Natalie David chose Wilmington

We purchased this home after falling in love with it while staying there when it was a Bed and Breakfast. We were expecting our first child at the time, and moving to Wilmington, and this house felt like home from the first moment we entered it. The large, brightly lit rooms were filled with promise for a beautiful life with our growing family. As we settled into Wilmington, we found that the house had so many special qualities and we grew to truly appreciate not only the its beauty, but the location, our neighbors, and all that Wilmington has to offer. We enjoyed the beach, downtown's cultural activities and restaurants, the rich history of the area and so much more! As time went on we had three children while living there, and enjoyed an extremely memorable few years in Wilmington.

We were disappointed to find out that we had to move for work purposes and tried to find a reason to keep the house As a result, we decided that turning it into a vacation rental would be a wonderful option. After all, all our children had been born in Wilmington while living in the same house, and we will forever be connected in our hearts to this special place. We now have the opportunity to share this home with others that want to experience the beauty and grace of Wilmington and the 'Magnolia House.'

What makes this house unique

While staying at the Magnolia House, guests enjoy the privacy and comfort of a family home, outdoor backyard space, at the price of a price of a motel (when considering per bedroom cost).

Guestbook comments from the manager

Natalie,



The house worked perfectly for the wedding! Everyone loved it and it was great to all be in one place and yet still have enough room where you don't feel cramped. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us :)

Perfect House for a Family Reunion!

  • 5 of 5
My family came to stay in Wilmington for my wedding in March. The space was perfect and everyone was comfortable. The kids had their own room and games to play with all weekend. The eat-in kitchen was the place where everyone came together to talk and relax. There are many big spaces in the house for family to have space but also to spend time together. This was a great place for the wedding party to get ready as well. My family and I were very pleased with our stay.

Weekend visit for a wedding at the Wilmington convention center

  • 3 of 5
The house is beautiful! The children enjoyed the open large spaces. Since we only stayed 2 very short nights. We wished we could've stayed longer. The adults were a little uncomfortable. The kitchen was immaculate! It could've used a cleaning: dishwasher, refrigerator and coffee table there was food in the cracks and crevasses. Bathrooms were cleaned except The master bedrooms bathroom bathtub had a clogged drain, the furniture can use reupholstery, it was all stained. You can feel the wind and cold from bedroom windows. This kinds of things reduces the beauty and value. Overall pretty huge house.

Friends Reunion

  • 5 of 5
Magnolia was a perfect place for our group of friends to gather. This home is so cozy and there was plenty of space for everyone to spread out. The kitchen is amazing and had everything you could ever need. We are cooks! The backyard was also a great place with plenty of room to play games and gather. We will definitely be back. This place made you feel right at home! Thanks for a great experience...

Perfect Getaway

  • 4 of 5
The Magnolia House turned out to be a great space for a reunion of seven adults and a dog. The house itself is beautiful, if in need of a little maintenance here and there. The kitchen is enormous and was perfect for us all to relax and eat meals in. The bedrooms are large and comfortable.

The property manager was extremely welcoming and helpful and the house was clean and in good shape for us to begin our week. I will definitely keep this house in mind next year when scheduling our vacation.

Perfect for big groups!

  • 5 of 5
My daughter got married on May 25th in Wilmington and we realized that renting a house would be far more economical than 5 hotel rooms for 3-5 days each, and it just seemed weird for us to be getting ready for a wedding in a hotel room... As soon as I saw the Magnolia House online I knew that it would be perfect for us to have for our family and the bridesmaids. There were 12 of us and we each had a bed in a bedroom upstairs; didn't need to use the fouton or pull-out sofa for sleeping. It was absolutely ideal for our purposes! The price is very fair for the area as well. We had several other family groups rent other houses downtown that slept 8 people and they paid more per night than we did, (nicely furnished and stocked kitchens),

Kelly was great and very accomodating, meeting us at the house upon arrival, bringing by a few replacement window shades in the bedrooms to replace ones that were missing, and dropping off a few extra towels. She was VERY responsive.

The bathrooms are old but quite functional and very roomy so they worked out fine too - there were 4 of us assigned to each bathroom and it worked out well!

My only small complaint would be that the "fully stocked kitchen" had hardly any glassware for a house that sleeps 12 people. There was a set of champagne glasses, and plenty of coffee mugs, about 4 wine glasses, and a few huge plastic glasses... Nothing to drink juice out of in the morning or an old fashioned sized bar glass... I also had to go to the store to buy some disposable 9x13 pans to be able to cook breakfast casseroles and coffee cake because there isn't any pyrex or other suitable bakeware that large. Compared to my overall satisfaction with the house that is a tiny complaint :)

Make a note if you rent this house that the coffee maker does not EVER turn off; you have to unplug the thing to get it to turn off :)

Owner's Response: Hi Sally,
Thank you for your wonderful review! We truly appreciate all your feedback and your nice comments. We are so glad that you enjoyed the house and that it suited your group so well. I am also happy to get the info about the items needed in the kitchen since we do find that we need to restock quite regularly. My only wish is that you would have mentioned this during your stay so that we could have provided you with what was missing right then! Well, our next guests will certainly benefit from the feedback. Please come back soon!
Best wishes,
Natalie
