Overview

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.

What makes this house unique

I have been renting my property on VRBO/HomeAway for over 10 years now and have one of, if not the, #1 listings in the Wilmington area. When you inquire and book you deal with me directly...I know the house inside and out. Yes, there are times things happen...the stories I could tell! But what I promise is that I will do everything I reasonably can to make your vacation or trip the focus of your stay...you just have to reach out and let me know and give me a chance. So come visit Wilmington! And give us a chance to be a part of that memory!

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!

Thanks for a great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This historic bungalow was perfect for our needs. The bedrooms are large and the living room/dining room is open and airy. Our favorite spot was the front porch which offered ample, comfortable seating and breezy ceiling fans. Allen was very responsive and great to work with. We would definitely rent again.

Central location in a cute neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

Just what we were looking for. Great neighborhood to walk the dog. One mile from historic Wilmington and 15 minutes from the beach. We would walk the dog and grab coffee in the morning and drive downtown for lunch and/or dinner. A pleasant stay that gave us a good first impression of an area we may look to move to one day.

Beautiful home

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!
