Description of the Wilmington vacation home rental
This restored home is absolutely charming, with granite counter tops, high-end cabinets, custom tile work, breathtaking refinished hardwood floors, an expansive rocking chair front porch, and large fenced back yard. Off-street parking and a large shed in the back for additional storage.

The front porch has two rocking chairs flanking a small table, and a wrought-iron bistro set for enjoying the streetscape with your morning coffee.

The livingroom has a fireplace, C. R. Laine queen-size sofa sleeper with high-quality mattress, loveseat, and 32-inch flat-screen television with DVD player and a DVD library. The dining room features a vintage American Drew pedestal dining table, six chairs, and a Norwalk buffet. The kitchen has a full-size, side-by-side refrigerator with through-the-door ice and water, microwave, smooth-top range, and dishwasher, and is fully equipped with coffee maker, blender, toaster, cookware, and dinnerware. The laundry room has a full-size front-load washer and dryer.

The master bedroom features a romantic four-post queen bed with pillow-top mattress, Drexel lingerie chest, vintage nightstand, and ensuite bath, plus a separate exit to the fenced backyard. The middle bedroom features a pillow-top queen bed, and laminate-top maple dresser with mirror, chest, and nightstand. The front bedroom has its own exit to the driveway, along with a daybed with a pop-up trundle that can serve as a single bed, a pair of twins, or a king. It also features a stunning vintage French Provincial chest-on-chest and a vintage painted nightstand.

My Daugther's Wedding

What a perfect property. It fit our requirements completely: location, #bedrooms, one floor and bright a sunny. Getting to our destinations in downtown Wilmington was easy. On our second night we had family and family to be over for dinner. The house is a great place to entertain. If we have the chance to visit Wilmington again, we would definitely stay here again. Thanks again.
