Quaint rental with easy access to all Wilmington has to offer
My boyfriend and I were looking for a place to stay after our original vacation plans to Maine needed to be cancelled for multiple reasons. After throwing a few ideas around, we settled on Wilmington, NC. Typically on longer stays we prefer a rental verses a hotel for a more "homey" feeling and the ability to cook our own meals if necessary. When I found Bob and Meroe's place, it was an immediate love and I knew that I had to book it. When we arrived in Wilmington a month later, we were greeted with friendly smiles and a brief, but helpful tour of the unit. For our entire stay, Bob and Meroe gave us our space, but were also available to lend a helpful hand/ advice. They made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. One night we wanted to use the grill to make dinner and Bob helped us set up the grill and provided the proper grilling tools. On the second day of our stay, Tropical Storm Hermie rolled into town which meant that we were limited in what we could do (the USS North Carolina is a great rainy day activity!). Bob and Meroe left us two huge cases of DVD's in the adjoining laundry room for us to pass the rainy afternoon/ evening. Overall we had a wonderful stay! The unit was super clean, the private entrance was nice as we had our space but also were connected to the house in case we needed anything. The mini-fridge, and other kitchen appliances (toaster, microwave, etc) were great to have so we could have some food in the unit. The "welcome box" of treats and the "bottle of bubbly" were a wonderful surprise and made the unit that much more special. The location is ideal for those who want to be a little away from the main downtown but have easy access to everything Wilmington and the surrounding area has to offer. The neighborhood is very safe and quiet. Additionally, if you are a runner or cyclist, there is a paved bike path a 1/2 mile from the house, which was a happy surprise for my boyfriend and I as we were able to keep up with our race training schedules. Bob and Meroe are wonderful hosts and I would not hesitate to stay again if I find myself in Wilmington in the future! :) Definitely book if your travel dates are available!
