Parking information: There are 3 main area's to park. Right next to the unit is a parking lot located between the unit and Chandler's Wharf. Parking is $5 per day. There are also two additional parking lots that are both $7 per day and give you a receipt to put on your dashboard. If you leave, you can return to any open spot in the lot within that time period. Those two lots are located at Market and 2nd St. or Water and Princess St. We recommend parking at Market and 2nd since it is a little closer to the unit. There is also ample meter parking and it's free from the hours of 6:30pm-9:30am and all day on Sunday. When you rent, I provide you the parking apps to download for quick and easy parking.

About Jaime or Tim

My husband and I would often take long weekends visiting the beach during the day and go into Historic Downtown Wilmington for the evening. We love the charm Downtown has to offer and all the fantastic places to eat. When we found this unit, we knew it was perfect for us and also decided to rent it out and use it for us and our family.

Jaime or Tim purchased this condo in 2007

Why Jaime or Tim chose Wilmington

We felt this unit was one of the best locations located in Historic Downtown being on the river and having the ability to walk to everything! There is always something going on. I love walking the Farmers Market and it goes on almost year round. We take very good care of our unit and have been very lucky to have had such great renters. We make sure to keep the unit comfortable for people when they rent with us by putting higher end linens, towels and tasteful furnishings. We wanted it to be a place we could enjoy and for others that stay with us too. We love to get feedback on the unit and always hope that everyone enjoys their stay with us!

What makes this condo unique

Location, location, location! You step outside your door and you are in the middle of it all: the board walk, cafe's, restaurants, art galleries, local history and relaxation. We love getting up early, grabbing a cup of coffee and walking up and down the boardwalk.

Positive experience

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I recently stayed here for a long weekend for our son's college graduation and we were looking for a quaint little get away for ourselves in the process. This loft was perfect! Location was fabulous- right across the street from the beautiful Riverwalk on the Cape Fear river. This is walking distance to cafes, gift shops and night life - or simply enjoy the quaintness of being in the lovely historic downtown Wilmington! Thanks- perfect fit for us;

Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5

We planned a few days stay to explore historic downtown Wilmington. The location and

accommodations were perfect. Close proximity to great restaurants and shopping. The

weather was so warm we spent a day at the beach. Property was clean and well stocked!

Great place to stay in Downtown Wilmington

  • 5 of 5

Was within walking distance of lots of shops and restaurants but in a quiet section. It was right at the Riverwalk. The condo had everything I needed.

Cozy Loft Close to Everything

  • 4 of 5

We had a very enjoyable week at the Loft on Water St. in downtown Wilmington. It was easy to get to the many different night spots and restaurants in the area. Weather was a bit on the cool side but nothing to slow us down. The week after we left was a bit warmer. The unit is cozy but has everything we needed for our week in Wilmington. Enjoyed our visit to the city and learned about the area. Would recommend it for anyone. Owner was very accommodating when we called.

Loft

  • 4 of 5

Loved it! It worked out perfect for us. Loved the fact that we could walk everywhere, esp. seeing that we were traveling on a motorcycle!

The only bummer was that parking was not included. esp. seeing that a parking garage was attached. But we adapted and learned to us the parking app for our phones.

We would definitely recommend this property and rent it again!!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. I do provide all information about parking and send the information to download the app prior to arrival so parking is easy after getting to Wilmington. The parking garage was not there when the building was built and it belongs to the building above it which is why we do not have a parking spot with our unit. We are glad that you would rent with us again and enjoyed the location!

Steps away from Elijah's, The George, Art Galleries, Boutiques and Chandler's Wharf. The unit is a gated complex with many options to park near by. The unit is about 15 minutes from Wrightsville Beach. You also have the option to take a ferry over to Bald Head Island from SouthPort or go deep sea fishing at Carolina Beach.

Did you know that Wilmington is considered the Hollywood of the East! If you have time, make sure to tour Screen Gems Studios. If it's a rainy day, we have the box set of DAWSONS CREEK in the unit along with other DVD's. In Downtown Wilmington there are many things to do, carriage rides, museums, ferry rides, fine dining and plenty of night life. Enjoy your day at the beach, come back and refresh so you can walk throughout Downtown Wilmington.
