Kure Beach condo description

OVERALL DESCRIPTION...
If you like quiet, unspoiled beaches, and all the amenities at a great value, this is the place for you! At 1165 square feet, our two bedroom, two and one-half bath, oceanfront townhouse feels like a house at a condominium price! This two-story unit sleeps six and has private decks off of the master bedroom and living room. Watch the sunrise from bed, or sit on the porch swing and see the surf roll in...

COMPLEX AMENITIES...
The Ocean Dunes complex has all the amenities including indoor/outdoor pools, hot tub, sauna, fitness center, tennis courts, basketball, playground, shuffleboard, and boat and trailer parking. (And our unit is located right across the street from the recreation center.)

TOWNHOUSE AMENITIES...
The townhouse itself is well-maintained with new upgrades every year. We recently added new carpet , a 42' Flatscreen and free WIFI! We have tasteful nautical decor throughout, and everything you need to feel at home. The updated kitchen has all the appliances and utensils like I have at home. There is a washer/dryer to get those beach towels dry, and a locker in the covered carport with sand toys and beach chairs. We are also fully equipped with electronics like a TV/VCR/DVD in living room and TV/VCR in the master bedroom, CD player, radio, and XBox. We even have board games, books, and a video/DVD collection for those (rare) rainy days!

AREA ACTIVITIES...
As far as activities go, there is so much to do it is hard to list it all. You are within two miles of the Fort Fisher Historic Site, the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher, the Southport-Fort Fisher Ferry and the Kure Beach fishing pier. A few minutes further away, you have golf, charter boat fishing, tons of shopping, and wonderful dining. The kids may like the Tregembo Animal Park, Jungle Rapids Water Park, or a visit to the Battleship North Carolina. Or, you can always just sit on the deck, watch the water, and order pizza. The choice is yours!

The mild temperatures in the off season, indoor pool, and wealth of area attractions make our townhouse a great vacation spot year round. Come and stay at our place!!!


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS...
There are some questions that folks often have about renting directly from a homeowner, rather than a rental agency. First time renters may be a little uncomfortable and wonder how they know we are 'legitimate'. If this is the case for you, just ask, and we will gladly provide references. We have families that are on their fourth year renting with us, and will be happy to answer your questions. Also, you may wonder what happens if something breaks during your visit since we live out of town. No problem. We have a cleaning and maintenance company right there on the island that takes care of any maintenance issues. We (the owners) are your primary point of contact, but there is a 24 hour emergency number that you can use as well. Another question is around key pickup. We have a keypad lock. You are e-mailed your code for the week, and there are no keys to pick up (or to lose!). Our guests love this feature! If there are any other questions you have, just e-mail and ask!

GUEST BOOK QUOTES...
'We have had a wonderful vacation at Kure Beach. We feel that this beach is a hidden secret - We loved it! Your condo and accomodations were lovely. We felt right at home quickly and plan on returning next year.'

'Thank You! What a wonderful condo. The SWING (0n the deck) is worth coming back for again!'

'Very nice place to stay. You guys have thought of everything! Hope to come again next year!'

'What a great vacation! We thank you for the thoughtfulness that you've put into this place. It truly was a 'home away from home'...'

'We will definitely be back. Kure Beach is a hidden gem and we're seriously considering making this our yearly vacation spot.'

              Car: Recommended

              Not only is the beach beautiful, but there is so much to do within minutes. The NC Aquarium, the Fort Fisher Civil War Museum, and the Southport Ferry are all within 2 miles! There are tons of great restaurants in Kure and Carolina Beaches. Historic downtown Wilmington NC is only 20 minutes away with antique stores, shopping and more great restaurants. The Battleship North Carolina is docked in Wilmington also. There is world class golf, great fishing charters, a cool small Zoo, and the Jungle Rapids water park all right there. And if that isn't enough for you, take a day trip to Myrtle Beach SC and get all the touristy stuff around. Or you can hang out at the beach all day, sit on the deck at night, and order pizza. The choice is yours!

              Other Activities: Find great sea shells and fossilized shark teeth on the beach!

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2002

              About the owner: My husband and I lived in Wilmington for 11 years before career shifted us away from the beach. We have two children in school, and know what kind of things to keep on hand to entertain them on rainy days. Prior to our move, we purchased the townhouse as a getaway and an investment, and have managed the rentals ourselves from the start. We go down several times a year, and make sure that everything is in good shape. This past year, we put in new carpet, decor, and painted from top to bottom. (We did manage to sit on the beach and enjoy it too during our trip!) Having lived in the area for so long, we are knowledgeable about the area attractions. If you need suggestions on activities or restaurants, we are happy to spend the time talking to you to help you plan your trip.

              Why the Owner Chose Kure Beach:
              We love the beach, and we love NC. Kure Beach is such a great vacation spot. Family oriented and small town feel, but right near so many things to do that you are never bored!

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              I love my deck swing! It is my favorite place for coffee or reading. And I never tire of watching the ocean. We love hunting for fossilized Sharks Teeth at the Beach! We have found hundreds over the years, ranging from 1/4 inch to our biggest at around 2 inches... We ask guests to trace their biggest find in the guest book, and I have put some info on shark's teeth in the condo so you can tell which kind you find. Photography is also a hobby, and I have taken some wonderful photos of the beach and the area. Some of my favorites are on the walls in the condo. Aside from the beach, we enjoy excursions to Southport on the ferry. Make sure and take some bread to feed the seagulls on the ride. They will take it from your hand if you hold still long enough!
