The Enchanted Cottage was a perfect family getaway for us and our children. The house is minutes from everything in a well-kept and quiet neighborhood, comfortably appointed, with exceptional attention to detail.
Upon entering the home, it is immediately apparent the hosts put in a great deal of effort to accommodate vacationers with children. Ours thoroughly enjoyed the scavenger hunt and puzzle (one of ours wanted to do it twice). The collapsible highchair was perfect for our youngest. Rooms and beds were comfortable, the sheets and pillows clean (we personally appreciated the rain shower head and river pebble floor in the master bath shower). Our children loved the treehouse room, and adored the idea of sleeping in the bunks, which were more than adequately sized for their ages.
The kitchenware included everything we needed, including children’s utensils, plates, etc. There was even sufficient barware for mixing evening cocktails. The hosts graciously provide a number of beach items, from wagon to body boards, making our packing easier. The fire pit in the backyard is very nice, and perfect for s’mores (even in the hot August evening). The yard was bigger than we expected, and the children enjoyed playing cornhole (another graciously provided accommodation).
Our children haven’t stopped talking about “the beach house”, and are already talking us into a return trip. If you are planning a trip to Wilmington, especially with young children, you won’t find a better property!

This place was the most comfortable rental we've stayed at! The hosts thought of every detail! Extra things, like a charging station, bath toys, and beach equipment, made our family vacation smooth. We loved making s'mores around the fire, watching the kids play on the playground, and prepping dinner in the spacious, fully equipped kitchen. The kids loved the enchanted quest! The neighborhood is quiet and the neighbors we met are friendly. We highly recommend this place!

The enchanted cottage was a lovely home that comfortably fit 2 families for a quick beach getaway! It was spacious, modern and clean. The kids especially loved the bunks and making smores in the backyard.

My husband, 2 kids (4-year-old/6-year-old), mother, and I stayed for a long weekend at the “Enchanted Cottage.” What you see in the photos is exactly what you’ll get. This really is a home away from home. It has everything you could possibly need – even a pack and play and a high chair. From the coffee bar, to the charging station, and even an online website full of recommended eats and activity - you can tell the owners put a lot of thought and care into their home and to make guest feel comfortable.
The house was beautifully decorated (you won’t see any IKEA furniture here) and they had good quality kitchenware (not those flimsy ones from the Dollar Tree). My kids absolutely went nuts in the kid’s bedroom. They loved that room so much. The owners had a scavenger treasure game – which my kids eagerly did. The playground in the backyard is a great addition for the children as the parents can enjoy the firepit and patio area while utilizing the grill.
The home is centrally located where you can sample everything that Wilmington has to offer. You can easily drive to the Riverwalk, Wrightsville Beach, or Carolina Beach. Right by the place, there is Lewis Strawberry Nursery where can pick strawberries. My kids really enjoyed doing that and be sure to try their ice cream!
Overall we had a lovely stay and appreciated how this home catered to families with kids.
