WE DID IT AGAIN ... Wilmington was just voted "Best Alfresco Dining in America" ... and in 2014 our Port City was named "America's Best Riverfront"!!! The World has discovered Wonderful Wilmington. Come see for yourself what all the fanfare is about!

This elegant suite is located in the historically significant Woodbury-Hoggard House in downtown Wilmington ... situated high on the corner of 5th Avenue & Orange Street ... just 6 blocks from the Cape Fear River (America's #1 River Front!) ... close enough for strolling ... down to the RiverWalk to enjoy the fabulous sunsets ... to Thalian Hall for live performances ... to wine bars and pubs ... and, of course, to enjoy a magnificent meal at one of Downtown Wilmington's excellent restaurants! A short walk home to your accommodations in one of Wilmington's finest mansions transports you back in time ... and to a quiet, restful sleep.

When (and if) you are ready to get back in your car, take a 15 minute drive to the beautiful blue water at Wrightsville Beach ... drive just a bit further to Carolina Beach (great seafood!) ... or to historic Fort Fisher (Civil War Museum) ... and take the scenic ferry ride over to Southport and the Brunswick Beaches.

If you enjoy films, TV, and movie-star watching ... you have found the epicenter! Wilmington is internationally known as 'Hollywood East' ... home to the largest film studio outside of California. Since Hollywood first called in 1983, the Wilmington area has logged more than 400 film-related credits ... and the filming continues (Iron Man ... Sleepy Hollow ...) Filmmakers favor the mild climate, island beaches, varied landscapes and architecture, and historic river district. On the streets along the Cape Fear River, different tours depart by land and water, and virtually all mention sites from the hundreds of movies, TV series and other projects shot here.

Choose from a dozen different water tours ... many with live music and libations ... to fully appreciate the flora and fauna of the majestic Cape Fear River.

Historic Walking Tours and Horse-Drawn Carriage Tours take you back in time, providing interesting and colorful information about our rich heritage. (The Woodbury Hoggard House is included on one o0f the Carriage Tours).

About Rhonda Schoolfield

From the Cape Fear River to the Atlantic Ocean ... and everything in between ... they believe there is truly 'something for everyone' here ... and they want to share the wonderful experience of Wilmington with You!

Rhonda Schoolfield purchased this condo in 2000

Why Rhonda Schoolfield chose Historic District

The Woodbury-Hoggard House is a historically significant structure, built in 1854 ... and one of the finest homes in Downtown Wilmington. Rhonda & Jim spent 5 years meticulously restoring this Italianate to her former glory. In 2004, they won the Preservation Award for their efforts.

What makes this condo unique

This one bedroom, one bath retreat features a private entrance on 5th Street.

Enjoy the beautiful dining alcove set in a bay window with a

western exposure providing dazzling sunsets.

This suite has been featured on the Christmas Candlelight Tour of Old Wilmington. The extraordinary hand carved mahogany mantle with one-of-a-kind Italian tiles and original plaster ceiling moldings were the stars of the show.

In the light-filled (fully equipped) kitchen, you’ll find a Bosch dishwasher, JennAire stove, and a side-by-side refrigerator with water and ice dispensed through the door.

The large bedroom features a King bed and the sofa in the living room converts into a Queen sleeper. Luxurious linens for four guests are included.

A small office is perfect for working at home.

A special monthly rate makes luxury affordable.

Great Celebration Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

I believe this was my fifth stay in this lovely unit! It feels like home to me. I have prepared so many wonderful meals in the adorable kitchen and enjoyed sitting around the dining room table for hours with my family. Rhonda has fantastic taste with the decor and her artwork, which adorns most walls, is fascinatingly beautiful. It is quiet, peaceful, comfortable and relaxing. The WHH is my only go-to spot to stay when visiting Wilmington. There is nothing about this apartment that feels like a "rental".

My husband and I are currently renting this lovely apartment and could not be happier. Beautiful inside and out. Rhonda is the perfect host and even included special touches such as fresh flowers and a bottle of wine. Will definitely stay here again during our next visit to Wilmington.

Very clean & nicely decorated, great location in the historic district!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over the 2016 New Years weekend and it was just close enough to downtown restaurants & night life. The house is well maintained and updated amenities. Parking super easy right out on 5th Avenue. Rhonda was a pleasure to work with and we plan on coming back! Thank you for a great weekend 🙂
