Cute and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

My family and I absolutely loved this place and my dad of all people said he wants to come back in the summer time to really enjoy the beach and let me tell you he is a hard man to please. It was wonderful having my parents and dog with me on our vacation even if it was the end of december and it was cold. We will most definitely come back possibly in June or September.

Charming and truely "Adorable"

  • 5 of 5

Great location, only 1 block from the beach. Cottage had everything we needed, down to aluminum foil ✅ Great neighborhood , quiet and low traffic. Bed in main bedroom a little small, would have been nice to have a queen. So nice we were able to bring our chihuahuas, they had a great time too!! Will be booking this location come summer time 😊?

Christmas Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The past two years we have stayed at the tiki cottage for Christmas. We love it! Just enough space for our family and dogs. Wendi is wonderful to work with and always prompt to attend to emails or questions. Neighborhood is quiet and the cottage is very close to the beach. Kids love the bunk beds and I love the tile floors throughout. Highly recommend.

Why The Owner chose Kure Beach

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.
