My boyfriend and I stayed at Blue Heaven while we were in town for friends' wedding and it was so lovely. Jay was a perfect host and made sure we had everything we could ever need. I am vegetarian and he specially made a veggie breakfast for me each morning, and the breakfast was always delicious. The room was clean... More

My boyfriend and I flew in early on Wednesday, and were greeted by Jay with warmth and breakfast. We talked on the phone before, and he knew we would need to check in early. He was very welcoming, and joined us for breakfast every day. He made us eggs, pancakes or waffles, sausage, coffee, and juice. Every day breakfast was... 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!

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

“Our room (Newport) had our (private) bathroom down the hall, but it was no problem for us.”

“I stayed in the Key West room because it had a bathroom included. The decor is Key West green, which is because of it's namesake from a restaurant in key west. I liked the decorations of the Newport room better, because the theme was more stereotypically southern, but I went with the Key West so I could have a bathroom connected (the Newport room has a bathroom across the hall).”
