Where you’ll be

Wilmington, North Carolina, United States

The private oasis is one mile from the historic downtown riverwalk located on the Cape Fear, and is located a block from New Hanover High School, in inner-city Wilmington. It is a diverse, ever changing neighborhood with lots to do within walking distance or a short drive. Just 3 blocks from the Den is The Roasters Coffee Shop, Metro Closet Consignment Boutique, White Front Restaurant, Domino's and more. Headed in the other direction is Hi-Wore Brewing, Retroscape Vintage Video Game lounge (we are the owners! come say hi!), Folk's Cafe, Love that Baby Art Gallery, and more. Take a walk on historic Market Street just yards from the space to see many historic homes or head down Dock Street towards Carolina Place Neighborhood and get lost looking at all of the unique homes!

There is also a Gas Station, Family Dollar, Domino's, Children's Museum, and a kids' playground (Robert Strange Park) within blocks of the Zen Den.

As mentioned previously, the Zen Den is located in Inner-City Wilmington so you will see people from all walks of life, it's city life! If you feel uncomfortable with that, again, this is not the airbnb for you.

I am a devoted husband and father to a little boy (12-9-19), a spirited rescue hound, Myles, as well as cat, Azalea. Our family loves to camp, travel, hike, and bicycle. Anything outdoors, we're there. My wife is a local school teacher (now on break for baby) at a middle school a few blocks away and also volunteers her time as her school's Trailblazer Running Team coach. She is also an avid runner. I work as a videographer. Together we own Pierce Productions, a videography and photography business. We love capturing what's most important to others! I also opened a vintage video game lounge just blocks away from our place. We are at 1123 Princess Street, called "Retroscape". We have video games from the 70s-2000s, gamer grub, knick knacks, and vintage clothing. Come on in and I will give you some free play time!!! We have completely renovated our quaint, cozy, and private upstairs apartment area (bird's nest) and downstairs room (zen den) and are happy to offer it to those visiting the beautiful city of Wilmington and surrounding areas. We see ourselves as very accommodating hosts, but never nosy. If you need us, we are there, and if you want your space, we totally dig it!

During your stay

Hosts live within the home downstairs, in a separate entrance from the Zen Den. Dylan is the owner/operator of Retroscape, a new retro video game lounge blocks away from the home!

Dylan also works as a content creator/videographer for the family business, Pierce Productions. Ann Marie is a youth running coach, photographer for Pierce Productions, mother, and school teacher on break, as she raises our son born in December of 2019.

We allow you to make the decision if you would like us to interact or allow you privacy and time alone. We are here to make your stay as pleasurable as possible.

You may hear us go about our lives from time to time because we do live on the other side of the wall.
