My name is Jake, and I have been a Wilmington local all my life. I love spending summer days on Wrightsville Beach, playing any sport you can think of, and traveling anywhere with warm weather when it gets too cold for my liking at home! I recently started an Airbnb near Wrightsville Beach with one of my best friends to help others come to love this area as much as I do. I am a licensed NC Real Estate Broker and love talking about Wilmington, so ask me anything or let me help you move to the beach! And check out my local guidebook! I love to travel, so feel free to share tips and must-sees for places you've been! I'll add them to my to-do list! My favorite places I've been so far are Aruba, Curacao, Grand Cayman, Culebra, St Thomas, and St Maarten! My current to-do list is Bora Bora, Hawaii, Barcelona, Australia, and Bermuda. My goal as a host is to ensure every stay is 5-star and every guest has the best vacation possible, so please let me know if there's anything I can do to make your stay even better!
