About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 7)

Enjoy the easy life of beach living while staying at our little slice of paradise. Centrally located, this wonderful beach retreat is only 1 short block from the beach, and a quick walk to the Kure Beach Pier,local restaurants, ice cream store, and shops. This charming coastal cottage has been completely renovated and includes a double bed in one bedroom and two sets of bunk beds in the other bedroom. Enjoy family time with all the comforts of home. There is a TV/DVD with cable, wireless internet, and board games galore. The full kitchen includes a breakfast bar with additional seating (no dishwasher), and the large bathroom has a stack washer and dryer. This is a bright, happy, cheerful place to vacation.

The cottage is tastefully decorated and kid friendly. An outside private shower allows you to rinse off after a day of fun at the beach. The large front deck is the perfect place to enjoy sunrises, afternoon cocktails, and evening meals. There's plenty of room for parking, and trailored boat parking is also allowed. Year-round neighbors are friendly and quiet. The beach is beautiful; the water warm and clear.

Enjoy miles of unspoiled beaches, visit the NC State Aquarium or the Ft. Fisher Historic Site and Museum, take a charter fishing boat or dinner cruise excursion, or travel on the Ft. Fisher Ferry to the wonderful fishing village of Southport. On two of the local beaches, you can go 4-wheeling; and there is a beautiful State Park that offers a picnic area, walking trails, a marina, and public boat access. There are plenty of activities on the island to keep your family busy and entertained after a day at the beach. Off of the island, there are several area golf courses and a waterpark. The vibrant riverfront town of Wilmington is only a short drive away, and offers fabulous restaurants, shops, a Saturday Farmer’s Market in season, walking tours of beautifully restored historic homes, ghost tours, and cultural activities. Come experience all that Kure Beach has to offer, in a location and cottage that exudes the feeling of a small-town beach community.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

Why the Owner Chose Kure Beach, NC, USA:
Kure Beach and the Wilmington area is fantastic. Wilmington is such a cool city with tons of restaurants and so much to do. Kure Beach and Carolina Beach are lovely vacation spots, with just enough 'touristy' stuff to keep you happy without the area feeling tacky and overbuilt. The beaches here are magnificent, the people are friendly, and there is lovely weather year-round. We hope to retire to our cute little cottage in the future.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This cottage is the essence of rest, relaxation, and happiness. When we were looking at properties to buy, we saw magnificent huge homes and condos. Yet the second we walked into the cottage, it was love at first sight. My son said, 'This is it. We don't need to look any more.' We hope you will feel as enamored of this restful little cottage as we are.
