Description

We are about 2 mi from the intersection of Hwy 132 and Hwy 421 in Wilmington, which is also the intersection of College Rd and Carolina Beach Rd. This is called Monkey Junction by the locals.
We have a long concrete driveway, sort of circular and sort of S shaped. Very close to level. You may or may not have room to extend slides depending on your rig. There are trees on both sides of the drive. You will need at least a 50 ft. extension cord to reach the electrical outlet until we get a new one installed in a better location. You are welcome to hook up to our water but be advised that most people are not fond of our very beachy-tasting water. You would probably need nearly 100 ft of hose to hook up but could get closer just to fill tanks before leaving.

House Rules

We are new at this so here is our best guess for now:
Mostly just the usual good manners every RVer knows. We are fairly close to neighbors on both sides.
No smoking, no drugs
Keep children close and safe, we have boats and stuff they may find attractive and don't want them to get hurt
Keep pets close and safe on a leash and clean up after them
Prefer no generators but if needed, use between 9AM and dark
No loud kids, music, pets, tools, etc in early AM or at night
We need to help you get in and get parked
If you need to leave real early please let us know the night before

Access Road Conditions

We are at the end of a paved residential street which ends and becomes gravel for 50 ft then comes straight in to our concrete driveway. After your stay you can either turn around and drive out, or back out, or pull straight through. If you pull through you will have to go through a few hundred feet of dirt/gravel road that may have puddles if weather has been wet. The area is very level. If you are over about 9 ft tall you may hit some small low hanging branches; not large ones that could do damage but something to watch out for.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

Usually will be able to park a tow vehicle in front of or behind the RV. If not we have plenty of other room.

Use the stay request form above to make a request with this host for a given date.

We sometimes have to be gone on short notice for business, family issues, or if a good RV opportunity comes up. Covid has been keeping us at home most of the time. We will be as flexible as we can but things can be unpredictable. And of course here at the coast the weather is always a big question mark.

Location

Wilmington, NC, United States of America

Suggested Local Attractions

We are halfway between Wrightsville Beach and Carolina beach, less than 10 mi. to either one. Lots of restaurants nearby but who knows what is open in these Covid days. Wal Mart, Medac, Home Depot, grocery stores, fast food, etc. all within about 3 miles. Wilmington has the Battleship North Carolina, museums, historic area downtown, lots of beaches. Not far away is civil war site Fort Fisher.

Great experience

Stayed here two nights while I visited my son who lives in Wilmington. Lee_and_Mimi were wonderful hosts and went above and beyond to help me with a situation. I did use their power to have lights and fans and appreciated this rather than having to run the generator. Highly recommend.

I loved this place!

Level. Quiet. Open space. ICWW at back door. Friendly, engaging hosts. I might just put my rig up on blocks and stay.

A Great Stay with Delightful Hosts

We were warmly welcomed and got delicious home made brownies when leaving. We hope, our hosts will revisit us one day as our guests. Nice and quiet suburban location, close to the water.
