You will not be disappointed!!
Family (mom, dad, two sons 18 and 15) and their two friends (same ages) stayed at this beautiful duplex from 7/22/11 to 7/29/11. I want to start off saying that I am pretty anal. All the reviews cannot be wrong! We live in Ct but had lived in Wilmington for 4 years in the late 90's, and were familiar with the location of the duplex. The location, although not on the beach, is only a 3 minute walk across the street, and is on the "bay side" of the ICCW. Even though it is located near two/three bars and the street activity at night is "hoppin", for some reason the noise level is not an issue. Everything is provided. You know someone took pride in their home when you see granite counters, stainless steel appliances. surround sound (in both living room and master bedroom), flat screen tv's, crown moldings throughout (even in the laundry room?), a Dyson vacuum, and state of the art digital washer and dryer. the dual-headed shower in the master is awesome! Everything at the duplex is available for your use..beach chairs (like 8?), body boards, surfboard, 3/4 fishing poles, tackle box, etc. is there. We have vacationed in Wilmington for the last 12 years and would not hesitate to rent this duplex again. This was our first time renting someone's home, and was fabulous. Another benefit was that the home came with a parking pass. We put our vehicle on the street with the pass (you can keep it there all day and night if you want), and that enabled anyone coming to see us to park bumper to bumper (2 more vehicles) in the allotted space in front of the garage without any expense and the comfort of knowing they would not get towed (parking is a premium in Wrightsville). The place also has an outdoor heated shower on the ground floor to get that sand off everyone and everything! The deck has a very comfortable double chaise lounge, and has a bar table and 3 chairs to watch the sunsets overlooking the Causeway. The only (and not a big deal all in all) drawback I can remember is that there is no gas/charcoal grill. I had spoken to the owners and they agreed that the grill should be added by next summer. We are looking forward to coming back in the summer of 2012, and hope our week is available when it comes time to secure the duplex. Everyone who came to visit us absolutely loved the place, and was going to recommend it to whomever they knew that wanted to come to Wilmington/Wrightsville in the future!
