|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
Momentum loft is located on the second floor (over Momentum Surf and Skate Boutique) in the busy intersection of Front and Market Street. We are in the middle of the action downtown. Tons of shopping, dining, drinks, bars, live music, and museums within 4 block radius.
Our unit is all inclusive. It comes with a parking pass in the covered parking deck across the street. No taxes, cleaning fees, or linen fees are added. I take care of those on my end.
This section of Front Street is full of retail and restaurants with an Irish Pub next door. Our guests can expect the usual city noise. There are no CLUBS on this section of the block that plays loud BASS until 2pm. The Pub next door does play tolerable music at a tolerable level until 2pm. The bedroom is in the back of the unity and surrounded by thick brick walls. A good night sleep!
The loft comes with 2 foam surfboards. Dont hesitate to come downstairs and ask the owner about private surf lessons.
Have an amazing stay.

A humble surf shop owner.
Hunter Ford purchased this condo in 2009
I opened my Surf and Skate boutique (Momentum) in this building in 2008. The owner of the building also owns several other buildings downtown and took to my wife and I after being good tenants. They had lived in the unit we rent when they first moved to Wilmington. This was the first building he bought and he sold it to my wife and I in 2011 for an amazing deal. We promised to continue to make downtown a better place and not flip the building on the short term.
We originally had our surfboard gallery upstairs when we took possession of the building. If you google Momentum Surf Shop Wilmington, there is a pic of the Surfboard gallery as it looked in 2009.
We converted it back into an apartment in 2010 and started renting nightly. We have the best repeat guests!!!
We are in the middle of the hustle and bustle. If you really want to experience downtown Wilmington, be our guest! Open the windows in the Spring and Fall and let the air in!
This loft was excellent. It is perfect for a small amount of people or couples. My boyfriend and I rented it for his birthday and it was perfect location to everything. It is just a short drive to the beaches, and it is in the center of downtown! We are renting it again for our graduation presents. Hunter is awesome, too. I have suggested this place to many of my friends and will continue to rent it until I move to Wilmington.
Hunter's place is amazing! Right in the heart of town. So cozy and tastefully decorated! The couch was amazing! So comfortable. My husband and I cannot recommend this place enough. You have to get take out from Indochine! Great Vietnamese and Thai food, and as always, Slainte' and the Front Street Brewery. Make sure you check out Hunter's fabulous wine bar! I am amazed that he built it! Perfect spot for a couple that wants to be in the heart of Wilmington!
A fun place to stay and really take in the experience of downtown Wilmington North Carolina. Super convenient to everything downtown. Hunter and his staff are great!
The loft is seriously adorable. Perfect for a couple who's into the bar scene. It's convenient to everything downtown really. It was too loud for us though. The people at the bars were very loud, not the actual bars themselves. To drown out that sound, the ac needs to be on and it is loud so it made it hard to sleep. Not to mention the city of Wilmington going to work at 4am street sweeping and collecting glass bottles from the bar. We won't be staying there again but if we were younger, we would. During the day, we loved it.
This is the perfect spot to stay if you want to enjoy Wilmington and all it has to offer. Even though it's in the middle of bustling downtown, the noise level in the bed area was minimal, and we had no trouble getting to sleep. My husband and I stayed for a busy summer weekend to attend his sister's wedding. The loft was in a prime location...only a block from the ceremony and reception site. And with the parking pass for the garage, we never had to drive around in circles looking for an expensive place to park. We just walked everywhere! Hunter and his family are very sweet and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to be back very soon!
We are big-time VRBO lovers, and stay at vacation rentals when we travel for business all over the US. So we decided to have a two day stay-cation and rent a VRBO in our own back yard of Wilmington NC. WHAT A TREAT! For us it is always the little things that show how much a host truly cares about his guests, and this charming little loft is filled with little niceties. From ample toiletry supplies to loaner surf boards and even a loaner car rack to get them to the beach, this owner understands hospitality. The condo is well equipped with a butler's style kitchen- no heavy cooking, but who wants to cook in downtown Wilmington! There are more restaurants than people, and most of them are fantastic!
The condo is comfortable and cozy; and the location couldn't be better! Right in the center of downtown with a bird's eye view of the best shops and restaurants! From sushi to Italian to french fusion, everything is literally outside the door! For mature jazz lovers, Wilmington's best speak easy is just around corner and down the alley; and for the younger people comedy, live music and dancing abound!
We already have our reservations for another stay-cation next month! Great little hideaway!
Our building is located in the main intersection of Market and Front Street in Historic downtown Wilmington. The section of the block we are located on Front Street is full of retail, restaurants, a brewery, and a pub. There are no clubs on this section of the block that vibrate neighboring condos with lots of BASS from the speakers. We get a lot of guests that are looking to switch from another location. There is outside dining that ends an hour before midnight and Pub next door that plays tolerable music until close at 2pm. No BASS.
Our guests are staying in the heart of downtown and can expect the usual city noise.
On Saturday mornings there is a great city market with local veggies ect...Horse and carriage rides, tours of historic downtown Wilmington, ghost tours, Battleship North Carolina, Diligence Coast Guard Boat and water taxi to battleship park. Movie studio and locations tours.
