Wonderful location! This was such a wonderful experience.
I would recommend this to anyone…parking is close to house boat. You can walk anywhere downtown you’d like. Marina is quiet and view of the river is nice.

Unique staycation
My husband and I are local to Wilmington but stayed here for a 3-night getaway without kids since we haven't been downtown much in the past few years. We loved the unique experience of the houseboat and the proximity to restaurants., etc. downtown. The houseboat still felt (and smelled) brand new and was immaculately clean! We haven't traveled much since the pandemic and felt very comfortable staying here. Check-in and communication with the owners was quick and easy. The house was well-equipped with nice linens, towels and kitchen supplies. You really felt like you were on the water without the motion sickness and cramped feeling of a boat. The only negative was that one neighbor was partying a little loud one night until around midnight, and being so close together you can hear everything. However, we would definitely stay here again!

5/5 Excellent

The houseboat was exactly as described online and perfectly depicted as well. It was so cozy and clean! We had so much fun walking and discovering the abundant restaurants, shops, and bars right there near the marina. We would not have had to even crank the car the whole weekend had we not wanted to. The owners were so accommodating and even went above and beyond for us since we were celebrating our 20th anniversary! I would not hesitate to give this five stars and have absolutely nothing to complain about! Love this home and can’t wait to stay here again!
