The Southern Cross is a wonderfully unique destination, Docked at the best marina in Wilmington it is perfectly located in Wilmington to the best restaurants, bars, breweries and music venues. We look forward to our next visit on this gorgeous 48’ Hatteras yacht.

Hosts Christa & Lee met us on arrival, gave us a comprehensive tour of the boat, highlighted local attractions/restaurants, and remained on call throughout the duration of our stay. Location is very accessible to quaint downtown boutiques and delicious eateries. We even had unexpected fireworks display over the river one evening. Accommodation was truly a unique to experience and enjoy Wilmington. We look forward to doing it again on our next trip to the area.

I can’t begin to explain how much we enjoyed our stay on the Southern Cross! It is definitely a unique experience that I would suggest to any and everyone! Lee and Christa were some of the best, most interesting people we’ve ever met and we cannot wait to come stay again!

My husband and I stayed on the Southern Cross for 2 nights to attend the Darius Rukus concert. Our experience was perfect! Lee and Christa communicated with us well prior to check-in and met us at the boat to show us around. The tour was thorough, and Lee and Christa were great! Due to the extreme heat this weekend, and their worry about the A/C keeping up, they communicated with us a couple of times to be sure all was going well. The boat was clean, very comfortable, and well stocked. We loved the extra touches provided by the owners to make our stay special. The location was perfect to attend the show, and to walk to historic downtown Wilmington. The sunset from the boat was beautiful! We definitely look forward to a stay here again!

This was our second stay on the Southern Cross, and it was just as great as the first time! This yacht is very cozy and comfortable, and is packed with amenities. Lee and Christa ensure that all of our needs are met, and that we are always comfortable. We enjoyed a beautiful sunset with a great view of the battleship, right from the boat. Easy walking on the Riverwalk to Downtown Wilmington. Highly recommend staying here!

The only thing better than the experience on the 51 foot yacht “Southern Cross” after the Crosby Stills and Nash song, were the owners of the yacht Lee and Christa! We’ve never been on a boat like this and they met with us for an hour as we checked in and showed us everything about the boat. The experience was absolutely perfect. Location is in the center of town. It really gives you an experience that you’re living on a boat. They were able to help us with so many different decisions. We have stayed at many VRBO properties, but never had such a unique and supportive experience that we will never forget. We cannot think of any property that would’ve given us this type of experience near Wonderful Wilmington where we called it WW.

This was a great location at the marina. Perfect for watching 4th of July Fireworks. Enjoyed a relaxing, peaceful time watching all the different boats passing by and all the different waterfowl, especially the pelicans. Lee and Christa's personal attention was above and beyond what is normally expected. Would highly recommend a stay on the Southern Cross!

We had a great stay on the Southern Cross despite weathering a tropical storm the first night of our stay! Christa and Lee were incredible hosts attending to every single detail! Our girls trip was relaxing, adventurous, and a "rockin" great time! We enjoyed the Marina Grill and walking to great restaurants and bars. This was an easy Five Star review! We will definitely be back!!! Better than a hotel room for sure!
