Thank you!

We had a great stay - What a neat place and location!

Lovely home and wonderful location!

We really enjoyed our stay here! So much was provided for us and the space was perfect. We loved the location as it was convenient to both the beach and the restaurants. I would definitely think about a return trip!

Very clean house, comfortable beds and a well stocked kitchen

We thoroughly enjoyed the close proximity to the beach and restaurants. The kitchen was plentifully stocked to not only reheat leftovers but also to create our favorite dishes.

Great house and area!

  • 5 of 5

We (three adults and three children 8-13) really enjoyed staying at this house. It is so close to the beach, plus there was a lifeguard near where we spent our time on the beach! The yard was perfect for the girls to have a little time playing outside. The house was beautiful with everything we needed to cook most of our meals! Kure Beach was a lovely area and close to several activities we enjoyed with the children. We visited the aquarium, Carolina Beach boardwalk, several places in Wilmington and Kure Beach pier! We especially enjoyed our day visiting the USS North Carolina! It was the perfect place to stay for a family beach vacation! We also really enjoyed being able to see fireworks on the boardwalk, beach and pier four days during our stay.

The property is very clean and roomy. The location to the boardwalk and beach is very close. It has a very large lot we used for our SUV and golf cart and cooking out. We really enjoyed our stay
