DETAILS OF HOUSE
PLEASE READ ON, TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE VALUE-PRICED LUXURY OCEANFRONT RENTAL IN KURE BEACH, NC
ENJOY AN UNFORGETTABLE, FAMILY GETAWAY VACATION IN THIS QUINTESSENTIAL ISLAND ATMOSPHERE, WITH THE OCEANFRONT ALWAYS IN VIEW AND JUST STEPS AWAY FROM YOUR SPACIOUS DECKS.
Enjoy oceanfront luxury in this bright, spacious home---spread out over more than 3,000 square feet---which combines the benefits of a single family home (this is one of only two private, side-by-side townhomes in the development that are located in a stand-alone building) with the privileges of belonging to a private, oceanfront community The association club house and surrounding area includes an oversized, heated indoor pool; hot tub; fitness center; heated outdoor pool; tennis courts; basketball; and, childrens' playground---ALL DIRECTLY ACCROSS THE STREET / STEPS AWAY FROM YOUR DOOR.
Arrive at the island by crossing the Intracoastal Waterway by car via Snow's Cut Bridge or by ferry (from Southport, NC) and escape to your own private 'resort' on the southern end of the island. (We affectionately call the beach house 'Sand Castle.')
Kure Beach is a special place, with the majesty of beautiful expansive beaches, easy access to 'North Carolina's Top-Rated Coastal Golf Courses', and easy access to the culture and history of nearby Wilmington.
So, set your clock to 'island time' and spend a week leisurely swimming, surfing, kayaking, deep-sea fishing, golfing, and sightseeing--or--just sit back and relax on the deck and watch the dolphins and pelicans.
The Sand Castle truly is a home, with distinguished decor and features. (Please email or call for available dates not blocked out by owners.) Returning guests appreciate the bathrooms and kitchen appointed with granite, marble and other luxurious touches---along with new touches added each year.
Sorry, no weddings or group events allowed. MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY OF 10 PEOPLE (NO MORE THAN 6 ADULTS--as the 4th bedroom on the ground floor is really only suitable for kids.) NOTE: PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THESE ARE HOMEOWER ASSOCIATION RULES AND THEY ARE STRICTLY ENFORCED by ON-SITE MGMT.
FOLLOWING IS A FLOOR-by-FLOOR TOUR OF THE HOUSE.
MAIN / 2nd FLOOR
You will know that you chose the right place as soon as you walk in the door and the expansive view reveals itself. The feature floor provides a wide-open floor plan, with soaring ceilings and a wall of oceanfront windows (15 ft high) that provide stunning, expansive views of the ocean, horizon, and sky above. Two seprate sets of doors lead you out to the huge oceanfront deck (15 X 26).
What's nice is that, you will enjoy sweeping ocean views from everywhere in the spacious living area---which includes the expansive living room (25 ft wide!), adjoining sun room (seating for 4), adjacent sitting area w/wet bar (seating for 4), and dining room/table, and the adjoining granite kitchen bar (comfortable bar stools for 5). The large, open space truly allows everyone to be together--without being crowded--while enjoying the majestic views, or relaxing to play a game or watch a movie on the 46' flat screen tv.
Chefs in the family will always be in on the fun while creating meals in the fully-equipped granite kitchen (with all the tools a chef needs) along with Kitchen Aid dw and disposal to help with the clean-up. Of course, the best feature of the kitchen is that it is completely open to the living area and enables the busy chefs in your group to share the fantastic ocean views and conversation.
There is also a large bedroom (king bed), full bath, and laundry room (w/washer and dryer) on this floor.
The entire third level is occupied by two bedrooms and two baths. The first bedroom has a queen bed and private bathroom (across the hall) with tub/shower and marble counter-top. The oceanfront master suite features a king bed, lounging sofa, large bathroom (with double sinks and stone counter-top, walk-in shower, soaking tub), walk-in closet with mini-refrigerator, and a private, oceanfront roof-top deck.
The ground floor is what we call the 'kids' suite.' It includes tv and chairs for lounging; a full bath; a built-in arts & craft table area; two bunk beds; and a walk-in closet that is also stocked with toys for kids of all ages. The other small/kid's-sized bedroom (double bed) is also on the ground floor.
Beyond the kids' suite is the door to the beach--which leads you directly to your wooden walkway to the beach and a private outside shower. What we call the 'back' door leads to the one-car garage. (Note: Addl parking spaces are available steps away in the adjacent private guest parking lot.
