I love the simplicity of the house. It is perfect for what I wanted and needed. An older home restored without losing any of the old character. The location could not have been better. A short walk to all the action of this hidden gem of a city. Even closer is Castle St with its small shops, INCREDIBLE yoga studio, CBD bar that hosts open mic on Thursday which is a must attend. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. Neighbors all say hello as they walk their dogs. The trees and flowers are old and full of life. The beach is a 30min drive. If that’s your goal my advice for those with a 4x4 go to Ft Fisher and use the drive on beach. Well worth the time and effort. I’m glad to recommend this house even tho selfishly I want it to myself.

I had a four month stay in Wilmington for work. Not wanting to stay in a hotel, I found this house online. It was a wonderful neighborhood and a charming home. Christine was attentive, responsive, and very respectful of my privacy.

This property, with its history as the antique Parker Cottage in tact, was perfect for the two of us as we worked “from home” during our two-week stay. The owner and manager were responsive, and the rules and features, accommodating. The recent convenience updates (dishwasher, full bathrooms, etc.) were truly appreciated. Plus, oh...the wraparound porch in front and another in the back! We enjoyed them all. Thank you, Chris. We’ll be back!

Lockbox check in super easy. Cottage was immaculate. Everything you need is there and so much more storage than it seems at first. Two closets in each bedroom and plenty of empty shelves/cabinets in kitchen. Sheets and towels are nice. Kitchen set up is very basic - nothing gourmet - but we found a sharp knife and plenty of dishes and pots and pans that worked for all our cooking. Loved having my dog and we walked the downtown neighborhoods every day. It was so fun and we met so many amazing friendly people. Walked to the Riverwalk downtown for dinner or sometimes after dinner just for the view or gelato! Best gelato since I was in Italy. Christine was terrific and even helped us in our home search as we are looking to move to Wilmington. Hope we get to stay here again or definitely would have friends stay here when we live in Wilmington. Thanks again, Christine!!

The house was perfect for exploring downtown Wilmington since you can walk everywhere. The house is charming and has a great front porch with rockers for warm days. Definitely recommend.

This is going to be a long review that I recommend you read the full thing. Even with the not so good things, it’s still hard to recommend against the house. I actually feel bad writing them, but I think people should know. The good: To start, the house is exactly as picured/described. It’s in a safe, beautiful neighborhood that is super walkable and very close to downtown. It’s also a really peaceful neighborhood and the neighbors are lovely. Parking was on the street and I didn’t have any issues finding space right in front of the house for over a month. To get to Wrightsville Beach, it’s an easy 15-20 min drive. Topsail is about an hour away (and totally worth the visit if you have time). Christine, the host, is great. She is super responsive to any needs and has really great tips about places to go/things to do. The rest: Not sure how many people know this before they visit Wilmington, but it has toxic water. Definitely look it up for more info. With that said, there isn’t a water filtration system under the kitchen sink (reverse osmosis filters are best to remove these chemicals). Maybe not a huge deal for a weekend, but I was there a bit over a month. I don’t think it’s something hosts are required to do by law. So, it might be a rare thing for vacation homes in Wilmington, but don’t drink the tap water or brush your teeth/wash your face with it. This is a really very personal preference, but the upstairs bedroom does not have a door. I have a cat and generally close doors to any room that I don’t want her in…especially in vacation homes. I, unfortunately, couldn’t keep her out of that room. Once she went up, I barely saw her again. Which leads to the next issue, my cat (who is an indoor only/only pet) got fleas while we were there. Since she rarely came downstairs/would hide if I went up, I didn’t notice she had fleas until we got back to our own home. I let Christine know on 10/25/21, and she said she is going to treat for them.
