Space 1,350 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 31 nights


About the property

2 queen bedrooms, 1 bath, queen and single foldout, sleeps 7 (3 couples + 1)

This ABSOLUTELY charming bungalow in the historic district of Wilmington was built in 1916, has 9 foot ceilings, and is located right off the popular Wrightsville Avenue amidst older homes constantly being remodeled. It has two bedrooms, each with queen beds, and a single bath, with a queen size sleeper sofa and a large chair with a single size sleeper in it, making it a great place for up to 7 (3 couples + one extra) to sleep.

You are approximately 1 mile from Front Street and the Cape Fear River (that is Downtown Wilmington) and only about 15 minutes from Wrightsville Beach. Across the street is a house used in the TV series One Tree Hill. It is the house Lucas, played by Chad Michael Murray, lives in.

Its walking distance to a wonderful little breakfast and lunch diner, a great park with a play set for kids and a large field for soccer, baseball, football, or playing with your dog. Across from the park is a Port City Java.

About Allen Wyke

Wyke Properties, LLC was founded by Allen Wyke.

Allen Wyke purchased this house in 2002

Why Allen Wyke chose Coastal North Carolina

As a child, Allen use to visit family and vacation in Wilmington, so he has always had a strong attraction and sense of belonging to the area. In 2002, when he bought the home, he was looking to find a place that needed some work, but would ultimately offer a destination...a home for friends, family and vacation renters to enjoy. The home is located on a unique one way street in its neighborhood, which was attractive, and there were numerous homes being remodeled. Fast forward to today, and nearly all of the homes on our street have been remodeled, a new Neighborhood Association has been formed, and we couldn't be more happy to not only provide the location for rental, but he also love to go himself with family and friends.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

The house was so beautiful! The pictures do not do it justice, it is much bigger than I had thought, we had 7 people and fit very comfortably in the home. We would have loved to stay longer, had a wonderful time and hope to return!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the great review! You are correct, in that its hard to get pictures that show the detail in the home and the spaciousness of it. When we had the recent remodel performed, we actually hired carpenters to do the work, so all of the molding in the home (except the crown) is hand cut and routed...even the shoe molding! And by removing the wall between the living room and dining room, coupled with removing the original ceilings and having them leveled and re-sheet rocked, their 9' height really opens up the entire home. And come back any time, we would love to have you stay with us again!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We love the house and the location! This is our second time staying and wouldn't consider another place while in Wilmington. Close to beaches, Fort Fisher, the Battleship NC and lovely downtown.

Wonderful House and Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this house and we are planning a third. You just can't beat the location and the house is well laid out, cozy and functional. You are 15-20 minutes from multiple beaches and downtown waterfront. The neighborhood is so friendly and fun to walk around and about (also close to a great park!). If you're looking for a place to stay that will allow you to easily see all Wilmington has to offer, you can't go wrong here!

A stay in Wilmington, NC

  • 5 of 5

The 1916 bungalow was just what we needed to get a few days respite from the New England cold. The house was neat and clean and the fenced yard was perfect for our two dogs. Picking a place that allowed dogs was the key to choosing the 1916 bungalow. We were not disappointed. The neighborhood was quiet and centrally located near good restaurants and historic sites.

Awesome for the 2nd time

  • 5 of 5

This house is awesome. The owners are easy to work with and have a beautiful home that gave us, our dogs and our friends a great place to have a good time. We spent two days driving our new 4wd vehicles on the beaches and coming home to relax and laugh the night away. We will certainly return for a third time soon.
