Blue Heaven is a beautiful B&B and the perfect place to stay for a romantic weekend! We stayed in the dreamy Sanibel South room for our anniversary. The room is huge but cozy complete with an adorable claw foot bathtub. Jay is a great host! We enjoyed our conversations with him and he makes and awesome 3 course breakfast! We... More

My wife and I came to this B&B for our 5 year anniversary, not only was the house immaculate, the breakfast was PHENOMENAL and I can truly say Jay goes above and beyond. The knowledge he had of the area and suggestions of places to visit and/or avoid in the town made the trip that much better. Jay accommodated our... More

We were in Wilmington for just a short time for a wedding, and thoroughly enjoyed our first stay at a bed and breakfast. The location, charm, and price of Blue Heaven was just right, and the welcoming and engaging owners made our experience even more unique. Breakfast was delicious, the owners were very accommodating, and attention to small detail was... More

What a great place to stay! My cousin and I were doing a little trip down the coast of North Carolina and stayed over night in this bed and breakfast. Jay is a wonderful innkeeper! He enjoys the company of his guests and will sit and talk to you about anything and everything. He was very insightful, about the surrounding... More

Our stay here was beyond perfect. Jay spent time making sure we chose good restaurants from downtown and that we had a map in tow. He worked very hard making sure we were pleased with our stay, which we were! Neither my husband or I had ever stayed in a Bed and Breakfast and it blew us away how it... More

This review is very difficult to write but I feel it is only fair for fellow travelers. The inn keeper, Jay, is a wonderful well-intentioned man. He is very congenial and hospitable, providing a lot of added touches to make you feel at home - water, wine, beer, popcorn, chocolates, and pleasant conversation. So what was wrong with our stay?...

We enjoyed the spacious Sanibel suite for a weekend visit. The room was clean and lovely. The home was beautiful and quiet yet still walking distance from the river shopping district. Jay was very helpful and accommodating. We World certainly visit again!

We had the pleasure to stay at Blue Heaven B and B and enjoy Jay's hospitality. His wife left him solo for the weekend and he handled it with aplomb. We brought our dog, Roxie, with us and found Wilmington to be pleasantly dog friendly. There is a degree of serenity in the Wilmington area that is unfortunately becoming difficult... More

We visited Wilmington, NC. for two nights. We chose to stay at Blue Heaven in the very comfortable Santibel Central room. There are a lot of different areas of this beautifully restored house to enjoy. There was a formal sitting room downstairs with a less formal one just down the hall from us. I planned to enjoy it but we... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Blue Heaven this March. The owners, Jay and Donna, were incredibly welcoming and friendly. We had complimentary wine in the evening with the owners and other guests, which was a really lovely treat! The room was huge and very comfortable. We will definitely be back to visit!
