1 Cool Swimmin' Pool

422 S. Fort Fisher Blvd

Kure Beach, NC

Master bedroom - top floor - king bed

Second bedroom - top floor - queen bed

Third bedroom - top floor - queen bed

Fourth bedroom - middle floor - queen bed

Fifth bedroom - lower level - twin bed and futon

Welcome to 1 Cool Swimming Pool - a 5 bed, 4.5 bath ocean view home that is dog friendly. Relax on our front porches and take in the cool ocean breezes. The beach access is 100 yard in either direction, an easy walk, and when you're done at the beach step out back and enjoy your own private pool with lounge chairs. You'll feel right at home here and don't forget to bring your doggie.

Lower Level: When you first arrive you notice a 1 car garage plus parking for 2 additional cars in the driveway. You can use the spare fridge in the garage and stow your beach gear and bikes away safely. Inside you find the kids room (5th bedroom) with a twin bed, full size futon, TV, stereo, and a full bath.

Middle Floor: On this floor is the kitchen, dining area, living room, an ocean facing porch, half bath, and a bedroom with a full bath/jetted tub. The kitchen is fully equipped with granite counter tops, stainless appliances, and plenty of cabinets for your food. The living room has ample seating, a large TV, and a sound bar. Walk out onto the porch and enjoy lunch while watching the waves roll in. The dining area and kitchen bar area seat eight. Down the hall is a bedroom with a queen bed and a full bath. This could also be the master as it has the most luxurious bath with large jetted tub.

Top Floor: On this floor is three bedrooms and two full baths. The master bedroom faces the ocean and opens up to a large porch with a great view of the sea. Down the hall is another bedroom with a queen bed and then a third bedroom with a queen bed. Both these two bedrooms share the hall bathroom.

In the backyard is your own private swimming pool. The pool area is fenced in and we provide some comfy lounge chairs surrounding the pool. Take a dip, at a depth of 4 feet it's quite enjoyable.

All bedrooms have TV's with cable and ceiling fans.

We are a little island but with lots of fun things to do: the NC Aquarium, Fort Fisher Civil War museum, two boardwalks, two fishing piers, Britts Donuts (an institution since 1939), Squiglie's Ice Cram Shop, and Freeman Park - where you can drive out and camp right on the beach. We offer free live bands, carnival rides, and fireworks during the summer and of course have some delicious seafood restaurants. What more could you want! You can book your reservation right from our website or if you prefer, give us a call and we'll be glad to help make your vacation a special one.

About 1 Cool Swimin' Pool

My wife Barbara and I purchased this home in 2005, and it is a love affair that has grown by the year. Kure Beach is more than we ever imagined it could be for our family. This is the place we go to calm our lives down,and spend time with our college age family,and their friends. Barbara and I both come from large families, (she has 6 brothers and sisters and I have 5 brothers and 6 sisters). The families are always welcome, and we cherish the times we've all spent together down here,walking the dogs,taking bike rides,barbequing with the kids friends, riding bikes, or just sitting on the front porch drinking coffee in the morning, betting on who will see the first Dolphin swimming offshore. We're loving it big-time,and looking forward to many more years with,friends,family,and hopefully grandchildren we can spoil.

1 Cool Swimin' Pool purchased this townhome in 2005

Why 1 Cool Swimin' Pool chose Southern Coast

Kure Beach reminds us of the small town setting we grew up,where neighbors greet each other with a hearty handshake smile,and where you can feel comfortable taking a leisurely late night stroll. Two of our closest friends purchased property here, and we knew this was going to be the place we could all get together on those special weekends.

What makes this townhome unique

We use this home as a way of entertaining family and friends. The 'Island Life' is a perfect way of getting away from the hectic pace that so any of us live on a daily basis, and allows us to wind down with our family in the tranquil setting of the beach and the ocean. We often visit the many restaurants,sit by the pool sipping drinks and watching the kids play,take walks,Barbeque,or just visit with our college aged children and their friends that can't wait to come to the 'Baldys place.' It has become the place where we can all take time to just do the things we otherwise find hard to do in our otherwise very active lives.

average rating of 5.0 based on 19 reviews

Our absolute favorite summer getaway location!!!

  • 5 of 5

We come back here every year and we always love it here! There is so much to do, yet it's relaxing to hang out at the beach and come back to the house as needed since it's so close to the beach. The house always feels like home and is comfortable. We love hanging out by the pool out back. There are beautiful views from all the decks off the house. I would absolutely recommend this location if you are looking for a relaxing beach getaway!

Awesome time!

  • 5 of 5

First I would like to thank Greg for being such a gracious owner, Greg and Carolina Beach Realty are really a pleasure to do business with! Being from the area originally it is always great to come back home and visit with family from the area. Our children are toddler and preschool age so the pool is perfect for our family. Everything that Kure and Carolina Beach have to offer is very close to the townhouse. We are headed back down in about a month to stay at this house again!

Second year in Kure Beach

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have vacationed in Kure Beach in April at this duplex. It offers everything you would need to make a vacation complete and comfortable. Access to the beach is just down the street and within walking distance. The town along with Carolina Beach has anything you would want or need to complete your stay a lot within walking distance for those wanting to. The duplex is very well maintained and makes you feel comfortable staying there along with the added bonus of the pool. I would highly recommend this unit for all the extras it offers along with the location to Fort Pierce Museum to do some sightseing.

Great family time!

  • 5 of 5

I just wrapped up my 4th stay at this rental and as the past 3 years, this year was another one for the memory books. The rental is very clean and has all the amenities you need. Many attractions are within walking distance: Kure Beach Pier, Jack Mackeral's, the beach, etc. We took the ferry to Southport Island for the 2nd time and as usual, enjoyed the shops and also a delicious lunch overlooking the Cape Fear River Basin. The owners are very accommodating and pleasant to deal with. I am looking forward to my 2014 visit to this lovely rental!

Fourth Stay in This Unit

  • 5 of 5

This is the fourth family vacation to Kure Beach. We've always stayed in this unit as it fits our needs perfectly. Spacious enough so everyone can have their own room and privacy and comfortable enough for us to gather together for meals, enjoy the spectacular views from the balcony and just be together in the living space. The owners are always accommodating and keep the place in good condition. They even provide bicycles which we use to explore this wonderful, quaint area. I'd highly recommend renting this unit.
