'Wow!' is the first word to describe this beautiful Victorian oceanfront home at family-friendly Kure Beach. This modern construction was designed by the architect to take maximum advantage of the spectacular ocean views from virtually every room! This is a distinctive and classy home with crown molding throughout, oak hardwood floors and Berber carpet, breezy ceiling fans, an incredible two-story great room with foyer and staircase, and gorgeous patio doors leading from the dining/great room as well as three oceanfront bedrooms to the breathtaking seaside deck and balcony above. Beautifully furnished and decorated, this is a lovely vacation home for a family looking for a special place to make memories together.

As you enter the main floor, you are greeted by a majestic foyer and magnificent ocean views everywhere you turn. The main floor has an open floor plan with a two story great room, dining area and full kitchen. The great room has a 60 inch flat panel television with DVD, built-in cabinetry, marble accents, island themed furnishings, and two stories of gorgeous windows gazing out to sea. The modern granite kitchen is stocked with cookware, bakeware, appliances, dishes and utensils. The adjoining dining area accommodates 8-12 and captures amazing ocean views. There is also a separate oceanfront bedroom with queen size bed, 37' flat screen TV and walk-in closet, plus a full bath and a laundry room with washer and dryer.

On the top floor, there are three additional bedrooms. The oceanfront master suite has a king size bed and 40 inch TV/DVD armoire and patio doors to the top balcony facing the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. It also has a large private master bath with double sinks, garden tub, separate glass enclosed shower and water closet, and an enormous walk-in closet. On the other side of the top floor, there is a spacious queen size oceanfront bedroom with TV and patio doors opening onto the top balcony, and a third bedroom with two sets of bunk beds. Also on the top floor is a second living area overlooking the main floor's great room with amazing two story ocean views.

The oceanfront deck below and the top floor balcony both feature fun and bright Adirondack style chairs and tables for you to relax and take in the breathtaking oceanside experience. Our home also features a private walkway to the beach with a separate deck seating area even closer to the surf, plus 2 outside showers, including an outdoor bath house with hot/cold water and dressing area to clean off sand and get dressed, as well as an outdoor grilling and dining area. A large driveway in front of the home allows parking for 4 standard size vehicles.

Our house is a non-smoking home and pets are not allowed. Small family groups are encouraged.

High-speed wireless internet access is included so you can stay connected to your life away from home. Departure cleaning service is included. We also provide beach chairs and starter paper supplies and cleaning products, for your convenience. Finally, we try to keep rates down by allowing you to bring your own linens to our home, but if you prefer, linen rental is available at very affordable rates.

Kure Beach is a wonderful beach to spend your family vacation. The beaches are clean and noncommercial. Located in an all-residential section of the island, our home is in a family-friendly community, and it's within close walking distance to the famous Kure Beach fishing pier. There are terrific restaurants at the pier to choose from and many other nice restaurants and attractions to see at nearby Fort Fisher (including the NC Aquarium and Fort Fisher Civil War sites) and Carolina Beach, each just a couple of miles away on the island. As we hope you can tell, we love our home and Kure Beach, and we hope you will enjoy them both as much as we do! Feel free to contact us with any questions.

What makes this house unique

This is a family-friendly beach that is close to many conveniences and attractions.

Our favorite attractions are the North Carolina Aquarium and the Civil War sites at Fort Fisher!

The beach is nice for shelling and finding fossilized shark's teeth.

You can take a quick walk (only 4 blocks) to the Kure Beach Pier, restaurants, Bud & Joe's, arcade and the Oceanfront Park which hosts wonderful free summer concerts.

Carolina Beach boardwalk is a short drive away. The amusement rides and carnival games are perfect entertainment for the whole family. So are the weekly fireworks shows at the boardwalk hosted throughout the season.

You can also enjoy free family movies at the lake as well as the Saturday Farmer's Market.

The car ferry to Southport is a fun day trip to Sourthport you may want to consider.

Finally, downtown Wilmington is a great place to visit. We also love the historic Battleship North Carolina!

As our guests, we'll send you an email before your stay that includes a guide of area activities and fun things to do for your family to enjoy during your visit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A spectacular week in an amazing home! We want to live here forever. Great Beach & Ft. Fisher Visistors Center. for "history". Found the local fish market hidden off the road. "Want sea bass filets? No problem. I'll cut up some for y'all." Turtle-hatching a memorable nature/conservation experience. Two boils of turtles hatched while we were here.

Everything is lovely

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed this house last summer and hoped to return this summer but were too late to book so we will make it an early fall thing this time. The house has big rooms just like the description (particularly the upstairs master and the downstairs bedroom), not like some places we have stayed that were so stuffed with beds there was barely the walking area of a hotel room. The views of the ocean are awe-inspiring, especially through the two-floor living room area windows! We set ourselves up on the beach but hardly had to take much out for long since the house is literally steps away. We made a lot of good memories here.

Lovely home. We had a great time staying here and Kure Beach was a nice destination for our family. We'd like to come back and would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Emma’s Dream was a great place for our family to gather and enjoy a vacation together. We loved it.

  • 5 of 5

Emma’s Dream on Kure Beach was a lovely place for our family to meet and the accommodations were clean and spacious. The views from the living areas and three bedrooms were fabulous. The porch swing offered a great place to see the ocean.

Awesome house! Love the view!

  • 5 of 5

We love to take a vacation in spring before the crowds descend in summer. Kure Beach was wonderful! The weather was warm enough and we could walk along pretty empty beaches. What made it truly special, though, was the house we stayed in. Jennifer provided an enchanting place for us with views of the Atlantic Ocean out of every back and side window and off both floors of decks. We could relax in the shade or go lie on the sand or walk down to the area of the pier. We never had an issue with parking or traffic. The house is comfortable and like a clean, uncluttered version of home. It really is close to everything. The farthest we traveled was less than 20 miles to the Battleship North Carolina, and we took the ferry over to Southport to see the Maritime Museum and go antiquing, but everything else was right on the island within a couple of miles. Great stay!

Fantastic beach house on the ocean

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic home. We meet up with family to vacation at Kure Beach every couple of years, and we always choose this house. It's comfortable and roomy, has space for all our cars, and is right on the beach. We like how we can walk to restaurants and the outdoor activities around the pier in the center of the town. We hardly need to drive for what we want out of our vacation. The owners have taken good care of their home and make us feel welcome in it.

A beautiful piece of property, convenient to everything in Kere Beach.

  • 4 of 5

An immaculate home that has been properly maintained. However, it will need some maintenance soon before it loses its charm.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your compliments on our home. We couldn't agree more that it is beautiful and close to everything. We especially enjoy walking up the beach to the pier and strolling through the island's two state parks, battlefield, and aquarium. We work hard to keep our home in immaculate condition for guests as you noted. Just as during your stay, we respond promptly even to a minor concern. We also between guests proactively address potential maintenance needs before they arise. Thanks again for staying with us.
