Kure Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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.

Why The Owner chose Southern Coast

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.

Our family had a wonderful stay on our first ever vacation to Kure Beach! The cottage is absolutely adorable and Wendi was phenomenal to work with! Very convenient to the beach and places to eat. The nearby park was an added value for the kiddos!! Thanks for the memories!

Adorable Cottage and Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

What a fun beach cottage! 2 minutes to the ocean. Your kids will love the built- in bunk beds and you will love that you can spray your little sand monsters off in the outside shower. The deck is perfect for family dining outside, book reading and wine sipping. Convenient to everything and Wendi is so awesome to work with. Highly recommend!!! We had a blast at the Tiki Cottage and looking forward to more Tiki Time in the near future!

Charming Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to get away! We stayed after my daughter graduated and had a wonderful time (minus the rain/clouds) Just a short walk from the beach access, awesome deck to picnic on, and enjoyed the extras, such as the bikes and beach buggy to carry chairs! Wendi was awesome to work with and I will certainly come back again!

Tiki Cottage is AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a week at this wonderful cottage! The cottage is just as described and MORE! The location is perfect - set back off the main road so the street is nice and quiet, but only a short 2 minute walk to the beach. It is also a quick and easy walk to the Kure Beach pier where you can get ice cream and enjoy cool ocean breezes. The cottage has plenty of room and all you need for an enjoyable stay. We enjoyed riding the bikes provided and sitting on the front porch at night. Wendi was great to work with - very responsive and provided all the information for an enjoyable stay. We will definitely visit again!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was an amazing experience. It was clean and organized. It is in an excellent location. We enjoyed the short walks to the beach, pier, restaurants, and the park. It was perfect for our Thanksgiving beach trip. We would definitely like to visit again. The owner communicated quickly and was very helpful.
