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!

This was my first time in Wilmington and my stay at Blue Heaven was delightful. I took my parents to Wilmington for an overnight stay in late Dec 2014 and it was a great experience. Jay, the owner, was extremely helpful and accommodating. He gave us a nice walk through the whole bed and breakfast, pointing out historical facts about... More

as a B&B owner I enjoy getting a chance to stay at local B&Bs when I travel. This B&B has a room just like mine, for a great value where the bath is located just outside the bedroom. No problem. Breakfast was very impressive and Jay has a way of making you feel at home...

This is the fifth review I have submitted for the Blue Heaven Bed & Breakfast. When thinking about what to write this time, I thought I would write about how the rooms were clean upon arrival (which they were). I thought I would write about how the rooms were quite comfortable (which they were -- I've stayed in the summer... More

We stayed in the Sanibel Central room for three nights last weekend. Jay is a very good host who enjoys talking to his guests. It is located about a ten minute walk to the historic section of Wilmington, in a residential area. There is plenty of on-street parking. We would stay here again.

Jay was wonderful during our stay. This was the first time we had stayed at a B&B. He is very knowledgeable about the area and made wonderful suggestions of things to do. We were never bored. The house is beautiful and our room was too. Jay also made the most tasteful breakfasts each morning. He visits the market often and... More

My husband and I stayed one night at the Blue Heaven Bed and Breakfast on August 2, 2014. I always check TripAdvisor before I actually book accommodations because I have found them to be extremely helpful, and for the most part, accurate. This B&B has had excellent reviews because it deserves them. Try to read as many as you can... More

We had not visited Wilmington in many years. The riverfront has a newish boardwalk that is good for a stroll and is in within walking distance of this B&B. However, we were disappointed that that Front Street has so many junkie establishments interspersed with some nice establishments. The Blue Heaven B&B, though, is in a nice residential neighborhood. The owner,... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Blue Heaven B&B for one night and loved our stay. The B&B is in the heart of the historic district and a short 10 minute walk to the riverfront. Parking is plenty in front of the B&B. We stayed in the Key West room which had great decoration and a very comfortable bed.... More
