The PalmTreeHouse is a mid-century modern garage apartment, located in Wilmington's Chestnut Heights
Equipped with digital cable TV, Wifi, and  popular web apps, you will stay informed and entertained.
Kick your feet up and relax at the PalmTreeHouse, after an eventful day on the Cape Fear Coast.
Relax on the leather sofa as you plan the next day's excursions...
.....or take care of business at the built-in  workstation.
As you wind down from your Cape Fear adventures....
...make the built-in Tiki Bar your focal point for libations and conversations!
In the fully-equipped kitchen, you may find yourself creating fine cuisine...
...enjoy take out or delivery at the spacious kitchen island....
....or easing onto the   secluded back deck for your morning coffee or tea.
Restful evenings await you at the PalmTreeHouse....
....as you settle into the queen bed with high-count sheets....
....and multiple pillows, making your stay a relaxing one.
The full bath and shower bring all the comforts of home...
....with a tropical flair!
Through the tropical path next to the PalmTreeHouse....
...find the Tiki Porch, a rustic, Key West-inspired social space, shared by your hosts...
....a perfect spot to begin your relaxing ascent to 'island time!'
Alfresco dining is one of the unique pleasures of the PalmTreeHouse....
....as you enjoy the spacious private deck....
.....overlooking the secluded Zen Garden.
Zinnie, the resident outdoor cat, finds the private deck overlooking the Zen Garden to be  relaxing!
Zinnie says 'Namaste'.
The Chestnut Heights neighborhood displays the architectural details of charming bungalows.
The PalmTreeHouse is located on a quiet wooded lot, though it is near the historic Riverfront.
Your tropical vacation begins at PalmTreeHouse, when you arrive at your private off-street parking.
When you arrive at the PalmTreeHouse, you will enter a Southern coastal comfort zone...
...where the traditional elements of Cape Fear culture...
....are balanced with the creative flair of this artsy enclave in Eastern North Carolina.
We'll leave the light on for you at the PalmTreeHouse!

“Amazing, perfect!”
Reviewed 1 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Best place we could have asked for. So welcoming and close to everything, only a cheap Uber away. Would come back here every time we stay. Lisa was so sweet and Zinny, the kitty, is a doll.
Can't say enough about this amazing stay.

The PalmTree House was just what we needed for a wonderful peaceful getaway! The owners Tab and Lisa went out of their way to make our stay special from providing a wonderful environment to the great bottle of wine they left on the counter for us. The PalmTree House was exactly as it is pictured even down to the friendliest cat, Zinnie! She would greet us every time we drove in. I can't say enough good things about our stay at The PalmTree House, we will definitely be back!

“Hidden gem in Wilmington”
Reviewed 16 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My husband and I recently traveled to Wilmington for a family wedding. We found this hidden gem nestled on the harbor side. It was spacious, relaxing and delightfully decorated. The owners were exceptional and immediately made us feel at home. Will definitely come back.

We were in wilmington for business reasons and came back 3 times this year at palm tree house. This appart above garage is perfect for a stay. You can cook and eat outside watching the zen garden an counting boudhas and squirrels, listening to birds , windchimes. Tab and Lisa are so welcoming and helpful...
The only thing they need now is to practice their french (LOL)

A carriage house of peace. We were pleased and amused at the eclectic decor and thoroughly enjoyed the porch over the meditation garden. All we needed was provided and the host and hostess were very friendly. The location was close to everything in this beautiful city.
