Property description

Keywest style cottage in prestigious 'Seawatch' community is perfect for family vacations to make memories. It has 5 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths in aprox. 2400 sqft all beautifully designed with coastal living in mind. Kitchen with tile counters, large double frig plus beverage frig. All bedrooms are 12x14 and nicely decorated. Home has 5 updated flat panel HD tv's and 3 dvd players. Rear porch get's full sun that extends across back of whole house. It has 6 adirondeck chairs, two sun chaises, a large picnic table and tile bar with built in stainless gas grill for large family meals. The covered front porch has a hammock for afternoon naps next to palm trees and additional seating among seasonal tropical flowering plants. A cool breeze seems to always be blowing from the the Cape Fear River to the nearby ocean. The house has parking for 4 cars on two separate driveways. The community pool is just 100 feet from back porch but yet trees provide privacy. We also provide a beach wagon, ocean kayak, several beach chairs and beach umbrella.
Seawatch is a private community that is mainly of second homeowners down for the summer or permenant residents. The neighborhood consists of families and is very child friendly. The rental provides complimentary access to the private Seawatch community pool, bathrooms, tennis, playground with playhouse, and common areas. Seawatch has a private gated community beach access with oceanfront cabana complete with seating area, bathroom and outdoor shower area.It is just 200 yards from house to beach . We often have a glass of wine at the cabana then a evening walk through Seawatch to see the deer with their newborns. It is short 10 minute walk down beach to Kure Beach Pier for fishing, dining, arcade, ice cream or a cold beverage.
Seawatch is just two miles from downtown Carolina Beach which has many restaurants and night time entertainment. The carnival rides are the center of downtown at the boardwalk all summer long. Enjoy the weekly boardwalk fireworks and outdoor family movies at the lake so please check the schedules. Private fishing charters, boat rentals, cocktail and dinner cruises are all available at the marina. Mini golf and arcades are all close by in Carolina Beach. Freeman Park is a city beach just three miles from Seawatch and allows 4x4 vehicles to drive on, build camp fires and let dogs play.You can also rent jeeps in town to get out on the 4x4 beaches.
Fort Fisher State Park is just a 5 minute drive south to the end of the island. It has a 4x4 vehicle beach that is totally isolated and aprox. 3 miles long. Ocean on one side and marshes with creeks for kayaking/ flounder fishing just 100 yards away. It is why they call this' Paradise Island'. The North Carolina Aquarium is at Fort Fisher and is one of the states most popular attractions. They also offer summer camps for kids from 9am to 1 pm. The kids love the camps at the aquarium with indoor and outdoor education (shelling, shrimping and beaching). There also is a civil war museum with live reenactments. It is nice to take the car on the ferry from Fort Fisher across the Cape Fear River and feed the seagulls. It will dock at Southport which is small historic town or board another ferry to Bald Head Island for lunch at the 'Mojito's'. It is small island with no cars just golf carts. Climb 'OLD BALDY' lighthouse for panoramic views. The sunsets across the Cape Fear River from the Fort Fisher State Park are amazing on clear days.
Seawatch is just 20 minutes south of historic Wilmington with it's Riverwalk. The Riverwalk on the Cape Fear River has many restaurants and shops. A trolly ride, ghost walk, dinner cruises, reptile museum and live theatre. Across the river you can tour the USS North Carolina Battleship.
The area has plenty of surf fishing , party boats , charter boats and golf.

Keywords: Keywest style cottage just 200 yards to beach. Large upscale home has plenty of outdoor seating extensive tropical plants.
5 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths. Tile counters and hardwood floors. Pool season is open from May 1st through October 30

About the owner: We are a family of four from Charlotte ,NC. We have two daughters who enjoy the outdoors.

Why the Owner Chose Kure Beach:
We purchased in Seawatch because it is best FAMILY community on the island. Many island homes are not in a community. We love the easy beach access, community pool and wildlife. The island has so many activities. In just a few years we have so many memories.

Upscale private community that does not have much traffic at all. Private gated beach access with cabana and bathroom for quests and owners only. Community pool ,tennis and playground.
