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!
