About the owner: We have been coming to Kure Beach for years and bought an Ocean front condo in 2001. After several years we decided that we would rather be off the ocean with more privacy, space, and SHADE! We love the quaint atmosphere of Pleasure Island and the less commercial area of Kure Beach. Historic Fort Fisher is
just 2/10 mi from our house and the residential area ends there resulting in less traffic and a wonderful area to walk and ride bikes. We love to walk around the FF battleground with the Cape Fear River on one side and the Ocean on the other. This area of the Island is truly beautiful. We love taking the Ferry to South Port and eating lunch on the water at the Provision Co. (good food-good atmosphere). Sometimes we ride our bikes (only $2 per bike & just 1 mi to SP). We are fortunate to live only 2 1/2 hrs away in Raleigh & enjoy escaping to paradise whenever we get the chance. You will not be disappointed with 'BEACH HOUSE'.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The main living area and the lower level rec room provides additional relaxing areas for all guests. Direct Beach access. Ample parking area. No neighborhood restrictions for boat parking. Nice backyard with lower level patio for grilling. Quiet street with very little traffic.
