About the property

Downstairs apt., great location, easy walk to downtown in the historic district.

The historic L.W. Davis house (1897) is a beautiful Italianate-style duplex located on a cobblestone street in one of the finest residential blocks of Wilmington's downtown historic district. The house is just around the corner from the Riverwalk and downtown's nightlife. This downstairs apartment has its own private entrance with two lovely outdoor seating areas, including a side porch and private brick patio with goldfish pond where you can enjoy the passersby, including the horse-drawn carriage tours.

The LW Davis house has been converted into two apartments with this property occupying the first floor of the house. There are beautiful heart-pine hardwood floors throughout, high ceilings and ceiling fans. The fully equipped kitchen has a refrigerator, electric range and microwave, plenty of utensils and dishes, and a dishwasher. There is also a stacked washer and dryer. The light-filled rooms have large windows and an original brick fireplace in the living room. The bedroom has a very comfortable queen-size bed and a walk-in closet.

The outdoor spaces include a side porch area with seating for two overlooking a brick garden path. The path leads to private brick patio area with seating for three overlooking a goldfish pond that has a fountain during the summer months.

You are very close to everything downtown Wilmington has to offer. Around the corner is Front Street with its large collection of 19th-century mansions leading to the commercial district just a few blocks beyond. Downtown offers great restaurants, lively nightlife, historic homes and buildings, horse drawn carriage tours, and so much more. There are fantastic beaches and important historic sites within a 20 minute drive from the house, and beach chairs and towels are supplied during the summer season. Wilmington is also a convenient stop from points North on the way to Charleston. Myrtle Beach and its airport are just an hour south. Raleigh, and the Research Triangle area is only two hours away.

About Joey Toler

My name is Joey Toler. I've only lived in Wilmington since July of 2016, but have been making the trek back and forth between Washington, NC and here for 13 years. Formerly the executive director of the Beaufort County Arts Council, I now am the Sponsor/Development coordinator of the Cucalorus Film Foundation. It's a great gig, and such a pleasure NOT to be in charge. I hope you enjoy what you see here about the LW Davis apartment. I'm finally glad to have it online and ready for business, just in time for Spring!

Perfectly located.

  • 5 of 5

Cozy one bedroom apt perfectly located near downtown Wilmington! Located on Church street so there was no constant traffic noise. Unit had everything you need for a two night or two week stay. Easy access to Front and 3rd streets so if you needed to drive you could do so easily.

This apartment is just beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a little slice of life in the historic district of Wilmington, this place is perfect! We walked daily to breakfast, dinner, the river walk. The location was just what we were looking for. The apartment, the porch, the little courtyard all just provided the relaxation we needed, too. I hope we get the chance to return soon!

Charming apartment, very clean with everything that we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier staying in this apartment! It was the perfect place to call home for a few days while visiting a wonderful city. Joey, our host, was so welcoming and accommodating that we felt the warmth of the area as soon as we arrived! We couldn't have asked for more and we will be back!

All-around great place to stay. Perfect for a night or a week+ in Wilmington.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 4 nights on vacation and it was perfect. The location is fantastic since its right in the middle of the historic district where all the gorgeous homes are 100+ years old. The whole neighborhood felt cozy, very safe, and super charming (the horse-drawn carriage tours go right by the front door!) and it only took a few min to walk to everything downtown (side note: go to Dram & Morsel for dinner, then Tails for drinks). The space was huge which made it really easy to relax compared to being crammed in a hotel room. Street parking was readily available right in front of the house. Everything was clean and Joey is an amazing host. He even supplied 2 beach chairs and a small cooler that came in super handy for days at the beach! 10/10 would stay here again.
