Dragon Fly, as it is affectionately called, is an amazingly private, quiet, and serene luxury home located on the North East Cape Fear river, about 30 minutes from Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach. CHECKIN time is 4:00 PM or later on the date of arrival, and CHECKOUT time is by 10:00 AM on date of departure. We need this 6 hour time frame, so that we may make the property ready for each new guest. Built in 2002 by the current owner as a vacation home, this home is the ultimate getaway. A brand new cooks' kitchen, massive deck and screened in porch face the river. A projector + 10' screen for screening films help to make this place very special. The home boasts 5 bedrooms and 3.5.5 bathrooms, with an extra large jacuzzi and walk in shower in the master. Nearly every piece of furniture is antique (circa 1900) and most of the art is from local artists. On the ground floor there is a full pool table, iron gym, and heavy boxing bag. Bring a boat, canoe or kayak to enjoy the river, or take a quiet walk around the adjacent pond to view the many animals and foliage that call this region home. Ever seen a woodpecker a foot and a half tall? How about Venus Flytrap, carnivorous plants that only grow within a 75 mile radius of our house and nowhere else in the entire world! Throw horse shoes, or enjoy sitting by the Asian fire pit as you grill steaks over a real hardwood fire. A massive porch fronts the house and faces the river, of which a section is screened in. We do not have good TV reception or Internet service, due to our secluded location. Actually, we hope that our guests really enjoy being 'unplugged' while here, off the grid! After all, why come to an Eco-paradise to sit inside and watch TV? The property comes with a caretaker in the event of questions or additional needs. Catering can be arranged. Thank you very much for your interest.
