I travel a bunch for work (coaching volleyball at UNCW) so this is way more house than I need. It's small by house standards (it's a 100-yr-old bungalow) but almost too big for 1 person. Close to downtown, Greenfield Lake / Amphitheater, Satellite Bar, The Harp. It's a safe albeit a little non-traditional part of town. Probably a $6 uber due north to the heart of downtown (Market and Front Streets). Kitty corner from a super-nice and upscale condo complex, semi residential, semi commercial.
Now I help coach indoor and beach NCAA Divion 1 volleyball at UNCW. Used to do the same thing for the University of Louisiana at Monroe. Grew up in Santa Barbara. Hobbies obviously include volleyball and beach volleyball, although I'm also a classically trained pianist with a music degree from Stanford and a Master's in Theater. I'm fairly well-traveled, and consider myself an excellent guest :)
If I'm booking travel for my team, we are in-season, so we'll look for the nearby beach volleyball courts, and we'll look for a place to hold study halls. My brother has a couple Airbnb properties and I'm happy to check your mail, move laundry around, do dishes...all that good stuff. I look forward to working with you. Best, --David
