If you like beaches the way they are meant to be; quiet, serene and beautiful, then come visit our Seaside Escape in Kure Beach, NC!!! If you want a place to stay that is clean and comfortable as well as convenient... THIS is the place for you!
Our three bedroom, two bath townhouse is a two-story unit overlooking the Atlantic oceanfront. This is not a high rise, just three steps in the back door and three steps out the front door to the beach. From the master bedroom you can wake up with the sunrise and gaze out through french doors at the sand and waves crashing in on the shore (right from your bed). The view is amazing!
There is an additional upstairs bedroom that has a double bed and two twins (the kids will love this colorful room). Finally there is a third bedroom with a queen size bed and second bath downstairs (great for elderly guests needing a first floor unit). You can enjoy ocean front views from the porch swing and rockers on the upstairs deck or from the first floor covered porch (loaded with benches and rockers) - either place the ocean breeze makes the climate just perfect.
You may be on vacation, but you'll feel like you're at home. We offer a fully-equipped kitchen with all the major/minor appliances (ie. cable TV, VCR/DVD, microwave, coffee pot, toaster, blender and dishwasher). You'll be able to relax or entertain, whatever you like!
When you come inside from the beach feel like you never left. A classic nautical theme can be found throughout the house. From the murals on the walls, to the waves and shells, you'll find the decor is nothing less than soothing and inviting.
As for local activities, you can find much to do. Choose from the newly expanded and renovated Aquarium at Historic Fort Fisher to the Cape Fear Museum in downtown Wilmington or something as simple as taking a short 4 block stroll to see what they're catching on the Kure Beach pier. Check out http://www.pleasureislandnc.org for local events, activities and festivals. There is always something going on here!
If you tire of fishing or swimming, you are conveniently located right between the two Historic towns of Wilmington and Southport. Wilmington is just 16 miles north. There you can visit the U.S.S. North Carolina Battleship (maybe even catch an old flick on the deck one evening) or take a stroll down the beautiful waterfront streets for an endless choice of shopping and dining. There are also a lot of fun indoor activities (google Wilmington: Bounce House, Defy Gravity, Jungle Rapids, Mayfair Cinemas and Wilmington Children's Museum for example). Either way you are covered on those 'rainy days' with indoor activities in this area!
Less than six miles south you can hop on a short ferry ride to the quaint town of Southport or Bald Head Island. You will probably recognize this town from such films as 'I Know What You Did Last Summer,' 'Matlock', 'Domestic Disturbance', or the more recent 'Safe Haven'. If you're a movie buff take a tour of the local Screen Gem Studios and see where many movies have been made such as 'Iron Man III' as well as where 'Dawson's Creek' and 'Sleepy Hollow' was taped.
Worried about what to do with the kids? Take them to Jungle Rapids to enjoy the water park, go-carts, and miniature golf. You will not want to miss the zoo either. A zoo at the beach you ask? You've got it... or actually we do! Tregembo's Animal Park (previously known as'Tote-em-in Zoo') has many animals ranging from the ones you'd like to pet to the ones that you know to stay away from. Lions and Tigers and Bears, oh my!
If you really like amusement parks; take a day trip to busy Myrtle Beach and go to the Pavilion (little more than an hour away). While you're there check out 'Pirate's Voyage,' 'Ripley's Believe It or Not,' and Broadway at the Beach, or just stroll the boardwalk... then come home to your quiet beachfront town.
For those golfers in your group; you will find several local courses (some even championship) to challenge your golfing skills.
Don't forget all the shopping, dining, and sightseeing! With the warmer temperatures in prime season complemented by the mild temperatures in the off season; as well as the area attractions and friendly local residents... you'll find our townhouse a great vacation spot year round!
Come and stay with us at our Seaside Escape!
