Kure Beach house description

This house combines true luxury at the beach with a price your family can afford. This is your opportunity to hear the crash of waves and appreciate gorgeous ocean views from the family room, dining room, decks and some bedrooms without paying the ocean front premium. And the beach is just steps away!

This house is not your average rental. Lots of upgrades await you and the home is newly furnished with everything you need to be truly comfortable. This is the second home of a family who loves to spend time at the beach. The house is only rented a fraction of each year and is maintained with loving care so it is not your typical everyday rental property. This house is owner managed so we can be sure it is kept in tip top shape for you and your family.

This house is wonderful for a family and is also perfect for two families to share with two of the bedrooms having king size beds!!! There's no argument over which couple gets the bigger bed in this house!

There were no shortcuts taken when selecting the finishes for this home. There are hardwood and tile floors in all areas except the bedrooms. You'll find high-end finishes throughout.

You will be able to watch the ocean from the kitchen sink, surrounded by granite countertops, high-end stainless steel appliances and a convection oven with warming drawer. Pots and pans, bakeware and utensils are all plentiful for your convenience.

The kitchen is open to the dining and living rooms, all with hardwood flooring. The living room has a 42-inch flatscreen TV, a sectional sofa large enough to fit the entire family, and an oversized chair-and-a-half. Doors open to a large deck with chairs and a table for meals looking over the water. A bedroom with a queen bed along with a full bathroom complete the top floor.

The second level consists of three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master has a king size bed, flatscreen TV, large closet, bathroom with dual vanities, a LARGE soaking tub, separate shower, and private access to a large deck. Another bedroom has a king size bed, flatscreen TV, walk-in closet and direct door to a jack-and-jill bathroom shared with an additional bedroom. The final bedroom has two sets of bunkbeds for a total of 4 twin beds and a TV/DVD combo to put movies on for the kids...it's the perfect spot for the kids to have sleepovers at the beach!

We do not charge a cleaning fee with standard weekly rentals, so you will pay the rental amount, security deposit, and taxes only. No hidden fees!

Several small conveniences are offered to make your stay easier - trash bags, a collection of spices in the kitchen, dish soap, hand soap for every sink, laundry detergent and fabric softener all await you. Just bring your family or friends and your linens and enjoy a wonderful vacation at the beach!

              This home is located on Pleasure Island, home to some of the most beautiful North Carolina beaches, including the towns of Carolina Beach, Kure Beach, and Historic Fort Fisher. Our beaches are easily accessible with a vibrant year round community only minutes south of historic Wilmington, NC and just a short ferry ride from Southport, NC and the Grand Strand of Myrtle Beach, SC.

              Our island has something for every member of the family, with gorgeous beaches, wonderful parks, a summer carnival every summer evening for kids of all ages and a boardwalk full of ice cream and beach stores that will take you back to a simpler time. We have golf, bike rentals, state parks and historic sites, an aquarium, a ferry and wonderful family-friendly restaurants. And, just a short drive away you'll find all the benefits Wilmington, NC, has to offer like golf courses, upscale shopping, a water park, the fabulous river front and historic district, a children's museum, serpentarium and more.

              We promise you won't be bored for a second on Pleasure Island..... unless you want to be. If that's the case, grab an umbrella and some towels and head out to the beach for laid back beach life away from the crowds. Either way, everyone enjoys life and relaxes on Pleasure Island.

              Visit pleasureislandnc.org for details about all the fun family friendly events taking place on the island this summer, including fireworks, outdoor family movies, the free summer concert series, and local festivals.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: We are a working family, not some big company, who share our vacation home with other families during the summer so they can create great family memories when we're not able to use the home ourselves. We love spending lazy days at the beach with our young children and visiting all the local attractions, like the aquarium, ferry to Southport, Fort Fisher, and pier and deepwater fishing.

              Why the Owner Chose Kure Beach:
              This is a great area to completely get away if you want to...but plenty of things on the island to do if you want to stay busy with or without kids (aquarium, ferry to Southport, restaurants/bars, beach, fishing, and more!) or in Wilmington via a short drive.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              This home has stunning ocean views. It also has a rare beach access without any public parking spaces. This means you can sit on the beach and look left and right and see crowds in the distance and wonder why it isn't crowded where you are. No public parking means the only people on the beach next to you are the locals and others renting houses nearby. A less-crowded beach area is a big benefit during a popular beach week. This home is near everything, and is a very well maintained property that is head and shoulders above other rental properties.
