  • Approximately 2000 square feet

Modern amenities abound in this inviting home within Wilmington's spectacular historic district!

Thoughtfully designed to entertain.

Generous, shady backyard, and just 1-3 blocks away from some of the best eateries, antique stores, wine bar, and yoga studio in the city.

Just 8 blocks (about a 15 min. walk) to the Riverwalk!

Savor the huge backyard calming about under the towering oak trees in Adirondack chairs. Close to all the best Wilmington offers.

The space
Entire experience is designed to make working from home a breeze.

The roomy primary bedroom suite features a king bed with a plush pillowtop bed, walk-in shower, and a desk so folks can work and take calls/meetings in private.

The front bedroom has a queen bed with a plush pillowtop as well.

The third bedroom features two twin beds with memory foam beds.

The home works really well for six people, but we do allow up to 8 people to stay, with the understanding that the people beyond six guests will have to sleep on twin air beds. We have two twin air beds, with linens, that are available for guests to use. The air beds include a self-contained air pump, so no worries about blowing them up. However, guests must request the air beds be available and the guests will be responsible for inflating the air beds and making the beds.

Fast internet is powered by AT&T fiber, with speed up to 1 GB per second.

The refrigerator does not have a water dispenser or ice maker. We have a Brita water pitcher inside the refrigerator and ice cube trays.

Off-street parking is available, but on-street parking is rarely an issue, since St. Luke's Church takes up the block across the street. Off-street parking shared between guests staying in the main home and guests staying in the bungalow.

The serene backyard is sizable for a downtown home and is shaded by towering oaks throughout most of the day. The backyard is shared with guests who may be staying in the bungalow behind the main home.

Robert Strange Park, the biggest park in downtown Wilmington, is a half-block away, with a public swimming pool, one baseball and 2 softball fields, basketball courts, in addition to 6 tennis/pickleball courts.

A big backyard awaits, marvelous for an intimate gathering of family and friends.

Unused electrical outlets have covers and we are focused on making the home "kid friendly" as possible. However, we cannot assure the home is "kid proof", and guests accept full responsibility for any accidents/injuries.

We have a Graco Pack N Play Rock N Grow Playard available. It's one of the best pack n plays available and retails for about $300. Just let us know if you need it during your stay, and we will make it available.

Extensive Roku TVs available in living room and primary bedroom suite.

Plenty of off-street parking available (3 spaces), with complimentary parking on the street. Off-street parking is shared with guests who may be staying in the bungalow behind the main home.

Distances:
Wrightsville Beach - 20-min. drive
Novant Health New Hanover Regional Medical Center - 2.6 miles
EUE / Screen Gems Studios - 2.7 miles

The walkability of this home is simply extraordinary:
Riverwalk - 15-min. walk
1/2 block to Robert Strange Park
1 block to Castle Street Art and Antiques District
1 block to Wilmington Wine Bar/Store
1 block to Gravity Record Store
2 blocks to Luna Cafe

Guest access
You will appreciate sole access to the whole 2,000 square foot home, bespoke shower in primary bedroom suite.

Access to front door of home controlled by Schlage Encode lock, which assigns a specific pin for the duration of your stay (no keys!).

The fenced-in backyard is shared with the guests of a modest bungalow/ADU in the rear of the home.

Other things to note
We want to share our home with people who respect others.

Not kid friendly.

We have a strict no event rule. This is out of respect for the home and for our neighbors.

If noise levels, or other behaviors, force neighbors to contact the police, and if the police validate a nuisance/illegal activity has occurred, guests may be subject to a $500 penalty, to be assessed at the sole discretion of the host.

Booking the best vacation home experience:

How to get the best rental home value:

  • June, July, and August are the most expensive months in coastal NC. Booking your Wilmington, NC vacation rental in Fall or Spring months is a great way to save on your vacation rental. Rates are lower, and you'll find a larger selection of desirable properties. Many vacationers use this method to find larger homes within budget, or to reserve an oceanfront rental that would otherwise be unavailable during the Summer months. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook the holidays for a Wilmington, NC vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday on the coast? Thanksgiving and Christmas are great times to gather with friends and family at the beach.
  • Reserve your rental as early as possible. Rental schedules often become available twelve months in advance (or in September just after Summertime ends). Many families reserve their Summer rentals during Winter holiday gatherings. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • Veterans and Active Duty Military members may be qualified for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property owner whether your family qualifies for a price reduction.
  • Booking websites often offer renters an option to add vacation insurance. Trip insurance, which generally costs anywhere between 1% - 5% of the base stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for missed trip time as a result of medical-related issues or weather disasters, as well as ensuing additional evacuation costs or charges, such as an unexpected hotel stay or extra gas expenses. Trip insurance might be a a bank account-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your property manager for specifics.
  • Many property management companies supply Wilmington, NC area travel guide magazines that include coupons, either offered independently by local companies, or by way of a partnership between the rental management company and the business itself. You can also find Wilmington, NC visitors guide magazine and coupon books at local gas stations and shopping centers.

How to choose the best vacation rental:

  • Choose a group leader, choose your dates, and choose a max budget.
  • Decide how many beds and the bed configuration your group requires. Downtown Luxury: King Suite - Riverwalk\/Castle St! has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our Wilmington, NC rentals search.
  • Specific descriptions of bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is almost always available on booking pages. If they are not listed, reach out to the property owner before you reserve the vacation home. Remember that most listings specify maximum guest capacity, which frequently includes sofa beds. You will need to determine what configuration is optimal for your vacation family.
  • Does your family require unique amenities? Most rental search websites include search filters with amenity lists. Use these filters to your advantage to find the perfect rental home.
  • Appropriate accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for those with limited mobility. .
  • If your family is vacationing with pets, you must book a pet-friendly property. Get specifics on breed, size, and type restrictions. Be aware that some property owners charge additional pet fees.

Considerations for your stay:

  • We recommend storing the manager's contact information in your smartphone.
  • At Check-in, document any damages to the rental property and immediately alert the property manager. Record all coorespondence.
  • Property managers are great sources of help! Feel free to ask any questions before, during, or after your stay.
  • Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like disagreeable vacationers bothering your peace. Apply the golden rule for common sense. If they like you, locals might even recommend great local food and attractions you would have not otherwise known about!
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Local residents can usually help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to go for the best drinks, have a great night out, or the best spots for shopping?
  • Protect the owner (and your things!) by locking and securing the home when you are out, just like you would back home.
  • Just before checking out, complete a final walk-through to make sure you did not forget anything. Check bathrooms, garages, and back yards for hidden items. Clean the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Record a video to document the condition of the property.
  • Did your family have a fantastic time? Many rental websites make it easy for travelers to provide reviews. If your property and/or property manager was great, they would love to hear about it. If anything was imperfect and they failed to correct it in a reasonable manner, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make a note as part of your review.

Victory Beach Vacations

Visitors who are on the hunt for the postcard-perfect vacation rental in the heart of the Carolina Beach or Kure Beach area will find an enticing selection and plenty of friendly customer service when they rent through Victory Beach Vacations. Based in Carolina Beach in the coastal Cape Fear region, Victory Beach Vacations has more than 100 vacation rentals in all shapes and sizes to ensure that every vacationing family can find their dream home away from home on the beach.   When you book your Cape Fear getaway with Victory Beach Vacations, the fun doesn’t end when you leave the beach, it continues with an array of privately-owned properties outfitted with all of the amenities needed for a fabulous beach vacation.   Jenna Lanier, General Manager, explains that her family first opened the rental and property management business in 2002. At the forefront of Victory Beach operations is Lanier’s mother, Caroline Meeks. Meeks is both the Broker in Charge and co-owner with husband, Buck Meeks, who manages the Field Services team with Lanier’s husband, Scott.   For nearly 20 years, the Victory Beach team has worked tirelessly to establish a network of top-of-the-line rental properties for Cape Fear visitors to enjoy. “As far as our properties go,” explains Lanier, “they are all updated, well-furnished and appointed. “We have always performed post-cleaning inspections and since the pandemic, have put freshly laundered duvets over all of the comforters between rentals.”   Lanier emphasizes how important the guests experience is “we strive to give our guests a relaxing, stress free, memorable vacation.” This emphasis on customer service has led to Victory Beach Vacations having a 4.8 Google rating with over 300 reviews by happy owners and guests.In addition to Victory Beach’s superior sanitation practices, the company offers properties for every type of visitor. Choose from luxury oceanfront houses and condos to more reasonbly priced 2nd row properties with oceanviews. Many properties include pools and hot tubs as well, perfect for outdoor entertaining, and many are dog friendly.   Lanier also notes that all properties are within walking or driving distance to Pleasure Island’s main attractions – Carolina Beach and Kure Beach. The former, as described by Lanier, is the more commercialized of the two destinations and features a boardwalk, outdoor dining options and a plethora of weekly activities including fireworks, live music, amusement park pop-ups, and movies under the stars. Kure Beach offers a more residential feel with its fishing pier, intimate restaurants and family favorite, North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher.More water fun awaits, too. “There is a harbor and a canal that feed into the intercoastal. We have several properties on the harbor so guests can bring their boat, kayak, [or jet ski] and travel between islands,” says Lanier.   A stay with Victory Beach Vacations is an annual pilgrimage for most. “A large percentage of guests are previous guests. Some even reserve the same property for the next year as they’re checking out,” Lanier says. “It’s almost like it’s their personal vacation home.”   Even before guests arrive at their vacation destination, the Victory Beach Vacations’ website greets them with a live beach cam and exquisite aerial footage of both Carolina and Kure Beaches.
