About Janet Reuss
My husband and I lived in Wilmington for 11 years before career shifted us away from the beach. We have two children in school, and know what kind of things to keep on hand to entertain them on rainy days. Prior to our move, we purchased the townhouse as a getaway and an investment, and have managed the rentals ourselves from the start. We go down several times a year, and make sure that everything is in good shape. This past year, got all new deck furniture. (We did manage to sit on the beach and enjoy it too during our trip!) Having lived in the area for so long, we are knowledgeable about the area attractions. If you need suggestions on activities or restaurants, we are happy to spend the time talking to you to help you plan your trip.
Janet Reuss purchased this Condo in 2002
Why Janet Reuss chose Kure Beach
We love the beach, and we love NC. Kure Beach is such a great vacation spot. Family oriented and small town feel, but right near so many things to do that you are never bored!
What makes this Condo unique
I love my deck swing! It is my favorite place for coffee or reading. And I never tire of watching the ocean. We love hunting for fossilized Sharks Teeth at the Beach! We have found hundreds over the years, ranging from 1/4 inch to our biggest at around 2 inches... We ask guests to trace their biggest find in the guest book, and I have put some info on shark's teeth in the condo so you can tell which kind you find. Photography is also a hobby, and I have taken some wonderful photos of the beach and the area. Some of my favorites are on the walls in the condo. Aside from the beach, we enjoy excursions to Southport on the ferry. Make sure and take some bread to feed the seagulls on the ride. They will take it from your hand if you hold still long enough!

Amazing long weekend!
We stayed a long weekend (Thursday-Monday ) in late spring and had a wonderful time! The condo was everything that we were hoping for and more. (One tip- make sure you buy or bring garbage bags and hand soap with you in addition to the paper towels and TP). The two balconies have a great view of the beach and ocean and we enjoyed eating, reading, and spending time out there. The beach was beautiful and it was nice because it wasn't particularly crowded when we were there. The ocean was chilly, but we still were able to get in.
We enjoyed trips to downtown Wilmington and Southport on the ferry. We also ran along the hiking/biking path and discovered a nature playground in the woods that would be great for kids. We ate at the Kure Beach Diner and absolutely love Squigglies Ice Cream in Carolina Beach.
We would highly recommend this condo for those looking for a relaxing beach vacation. It is away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to restaurants and other activities.
So glad you enjoyed your stay! We hope to have you back soon :)
Absolutely beautiful, so close to the ocean!
Walking distance to the aquarium is a plus plus :)
This place has everything and it is located on the quiet side of Kure beach.
We will definitely come back!
Thanks for taking time to write! So glad you had a good stay, and looking forward to having you back!
Watched the dolphins play from the bedroom. Plenty of room comfortable beds
Thanks for writing! I always feel like it is a bit of magic to watch the dolphins :) Hope to have you back!
I love how spacious it is. I also loved the swing on the deck. We will definitely stay there again.
This is a great place to stay in Kure. I have never been in a hotel or rental that was as clean as this one. Our group felt so comfortable here & it was absolutely perfect for our ladies retreat weekend. There was plenty of room for all of us & just a few steps from the beach. At night, it was so quiet, except for the entrancing sound of ocean waves. We all felt so revived after our stay. In fact, we are already planning our stay for next year! The owner, Janet, was quite wonderful in that she always responded very promptly to any questions I had throughout the whole process & made sure our stay was perfect. I am so happy we chose to stay here. No doubt this is a great getaway!
Thanks for taking the time to write! I am so glad you had a good stay:)
Looking forward to having you back!
Everything was clean and fresh! Only thing was in the eating area was carpet, not a problem off season but would recommend doing laminate or tile. Front door knob was wiggly but worked. Overall would highly recommend this lovely villa.
Thanks for taking the time to write! Appreciate you input on flooring, and that is our plan when we replace the carpet next year Will have maintenance check out the door knob. Hope to have you back! Janet
Not only is the beach beautiful, but there is so much to do within minutes. The NC Aquarium, the Fort Fisher Civil War Museum, and the Southport Ferry are all within 2 miles! There are tons of great restaurants in Kure and Carolina Beaches. Historic downtown Wilmington NC is only 20 minutes away with antique stores, shopping and more great restaurants. The Battleship North Carolina is docked in Wilmington also. There is world class golf, great fishing charters, a cool small Zoo, and the Jungle Rapids water park all right there. And if that isn't enough for you, take a day trip to Myrtle Beach SC and get all the touristy stuff around. Or you can hang out at the beach all day, sit on the deck at night, and order pizza. The choice is yours!
Other Activities: Find great sea shells and fossilized shark teeth on the beach!
