Hi friends!

We have a lovely private guest room with a private bath in our two-story home.

Close to the beach (6 miles, 10-15 mins, traffic dep), we offer pre-check in parking. We're also close to UNCW, dining, retail, golf, and a theater.

Darwin is a former "One Tree Hill" crew member, and has advice about which locations to visit, if that's your thing.

Our home is clean, quiet, and open to friendly people of any race, religion, immigration status, or sexual orientation.

Be our guests!

The space

The room is located in the upstairs portion of our home, and features an incredibly comfortable king-sized bed with memory foam mattress, the freshest of linens, and tons of plush pillows. The bed is so comfy, we have had guests cancel their plans to go out in order to continue lounging. Yes, it's that great.

The room is most suitable for 2 adults and a child. A $25 fee is added for a 3rd guest. Children under 12 are excluded from the fee.

The room features a 42" HDTV with 231 DIRECTV channels (all premium movie networks), remote-controlled ceiling fan/light, a mini-fridge stocked with bottled water, complimentary snacks (breakfast bars, fruit, cookies, etc), and a coffee maker (cups, coffee, cream, and sugar included). Tea is available upon request. We do not offer a breakfast, but can recommend many great breakfast spots just minutes from our home.

The TV is Chromecast ready, so you can stream your Netflix and YouTube accounts wirelessly via your smart phone or tablet. The Chromecast App on your phone/tablet is required. If you're not familiar with the DIRECTV or Chromecast systems, we'll be more than happy to give a tutorial upon your arrival.

Both bedside tables are equipped with USB charging stations (3 USB plugs each) and convenient AC outlets. There is a wall-integrated hallway night-light that comes on automatically when the hall light is turned off.

Functional smoke/carbon monoxide alarms are located on both floors, and there is a first-aid kit available in your room. For more info about safety, please reference the emergency action plans, which are available upon booking.

We have fast and reliable 2.4/5ghz WiFi. The password is available in the room.

The room has lots of closet space, a set of drawers, a locking door, and black-out curtains, if you're a late sleeper.

Your private bathroom will be ready with clean towels/washcloths and spare toiletries upon arrival. Water pressure in the shower is great, and the water is soft. We provide hand soap and fresh, unopened bath soaps for every guest. The bathroom door also locks.

If you've visited the beach and want to spray off your things, we have a hose and nozzle convenient to the front entrance.

Guest access

You'll have access to our bright, spacious guest room, located on the second floor of our home, and your own private bathroom, with a tub and a removable multi-setting shower-head. The room is a quick trip up the stairs, and then to the right. If notified ahead of time, we're happy to offer the use of our kitchen microwave, if you need to warm up some leftovers.

We offer guests a key to the home, so you may come and go throughout your stay. We ask that you leave the key ring on the steps, before you depart.

We'll be more than happy to help carry your bags up and down stairs, if that's something you need help with. Just let us know ahead of time, so we can be around when you arrive and leave.

Interaction with guests

We make every effort to personally greet our guests and show them to their room upon arrival. In the case of conflicting schedules, we will always leave a key in a pre-arranged spot.

Since this is a guest bedroom in our primary residence, there may be friendly hallway greetings or the occasional high-five. Your choice.

If you're into Star Wars light-saber fights with a 7 year old, that can also be arranged for no extra charge.

Other things to note

We have a 7 year old son, so we ask that you please be respectful of quiet hours of 11pm-7am. As it's now summer break, we're not looking for for dead silence, more of a general consideration that he's around.

We normally keep the thermostat cool in the evenings and at night, and a few degrees warmer during the day and afternoon hours, to conserve energy. Please let us know if you'd like to make an adjustment, we do not mind at all.

We will be up early for work or day-camp during the week, but will use our rear stairway, in order to not disturb you in the morning. We will make every effort to preserve your morning rest.

We have a small dog (Jack Russell) named Sarah, and an elderly cat (just a regular cat) named Dakota, who keep to themselves. Both are friendly pets, but as their vision isn't great, they tend to get nervous around very young children. They rarely venture upstairs, and It's no problem to keep them further separated from you during your stay, if you'd like. Our pets are housebroken, and 100% flea-free.

Everything was great! The room is large, the bed is very comfortable, the sheets are soft! There's a nice tv to easily watch from the bed. There's a mini fridge and coffee maker, with coffee provided and some drinks and snacks. There are soaps in the bathroom too. Darwin and Kate are very accommodating and made the experience very easy. We felt like we had a lot of privacy, even with the bathroom in the hallway. Great place to stay!

I hope to stay at Kate and Darwin's again in the future and would recommend it to others as well! It is close to the beach and not too far from downtown. They were great to communicate with before as well as during our stay. They had great suggestions about places to eat at and visit while in Wilmington and are very inviting! The room is nice and comfortable. It is bigger than it looks in the pictures. The coffee and snacks in the room were great to have throughout the weekend. Great place to stay!

Easy going, accommodating, awesome hosts. Beautiful house, close to the beach, close to shops and restaurants. The room itself had an amazing bed, mini fridge, coffee maker and big TV. We loved our stay here and will definitely be coming back again.

Dawin and Kate were kind, generous, and easy to deal with. We could not have been more pleased with our trip. If you need a lovely room and wonderful host, then look no father.

The bed and the room are extremely comfortable, with a hallway bathroom just steps away from the door. There's a coffee pot and snacks in the room with a small refrigerator stocked with botteled water. We were able to let ourselves in and out with no problems and was an easy point to get to shops and the beach. We will definitely try to stay here again when we visit Wilmington in the future!

Darwin & Kate have an awesome place! Everything here was very comfortable and they graciously helped us out with some great recommendations. This location was also perfect for anyone wanting to check out Wrightsville beach or the downtown Wilmington area. We will definitely try to stay here again if we come back in the future!
