LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION...Very Short walk to the beach. Only 300 feet to the ocean which also has lifeguards during the summer months. If lifeguards are important to you, please make sure the part of the beach you visit is lifeguard protected. Many portions of the beach do not have lifeguards.

Seperate laundry room with a full size washer and dryer. 3 TV's with cable, DVR, VCR, Central Air and games for the kids. Relax on the large deck and enjoy and eating on the picnic table or sit and enjoy the screened porch.

Kure Beach is a wonderful beach to spend your family vacation. The beaches are wide, clean and uncrowded. Some of the best catches along the Carolina Coast have been made at the Kure Beach Fishing Pier. After a morning on the beach, visit the North Carolina State Aquarium, the Carolina Beach State Park, or the Historic Fort Fisher Museum. All are only a few miles away. Go 4-Wheeling on the north or south-end beaches of the Island, charter a fishing boat or take a dinner cruise from the Carolina Beach Boat Basin. Just off the Island are golf courses, water parks, and plenty of spas to enjoy. The charming riverfront city of Wilmington is only 20 minutes away, and offers wonderful shops, restaurants, a Farmer’s Market on Saturday, and cultural activities. Another great day trip is a ferry ride to Southport, a fun fishing village with fabulous shops and restaurants. The ferry is only several miles away. If you have ever wanted to learn how to surf fish, Kure Beach offers Surf Fishing classes during the summer months. Call the town for details prior to your stay. 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!

We have lots of parking available on and off street.

Sleeps 10, additional fee for more than 6 quests staying at the house. NON- SMOKING - Your friendly pet is welcome.

Awesome Location!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great! Short walk to the beach, pier, restaurants and arcade. The house is very well equipped for cooking and for playing on the beach (the beach cart is awesome!) We would definitely stay here again! Thanks for sharing your house!

A great trip with the kids

  • 5 of 5

The house had more space than expected. The furnishings and décor were very nice. We enjoyed the games and toys that kept our young children entertained. You can see the ocean from the porch and it really is close and convenient. We also walked to the pier almost every day. Would stay again for sure!

Our Perfect Summer Place

  • 5 of 5

This was our third summer at Our Kornor of Kure. The cottage is just as the pictures look and the ocean is a short 2 minutes walk. Can 't get any better than that! The house is clean and the owners have little extra's to make you feel at home. It was easy and pleasant to make arrangements with the owners to rent their cottage. I would recommend their place to a friend or relative. The kids would love the aquarium at Cape Fear and walking the board walk where there is always fishing going on. Oh, I miss my summer place already. However, it's only 11 months away!! That makes my poodle happy too.

Loved The Kornor of Kure!

  • 5 of 5

My family found this wonderful house on the corner and fell in love! Just the perfect place to spend a weekend away with the family. It was so clean and furnished so well. Loved the location and the fact that it was within walking distance of so many places there in Kure Beach. It had great parking and even enough room for the truck and boat when we come back down. Loved it...will definitely be back!

About John Trusch

We have lived in NC for the past 20 years and we have visited every beach in the state. We chose Kure Beach to buy our vacation home because it offers everything we love to do while enjoying a vacation at the beach. We especially love the fact that we are so close to the ocean. You can see the ocean from our driveway and it is only 300 feet away. We can literally be at the beach in just a few minutes. This really comes in handy when we have friends visit with small children. It is just a very short walk if they need to use the bathroom or to refill the cooler. We also love to surf fish and fish from the Kure Beach Fishing Pier which is only 1 ½ short blocks away. We are sure that when you visit, you will fall in love with Kure Beach just as we have.

John Trusch purchased this house in 2008

Why John Trusch chose Kure Beach

Kure Beach offers everything we have always wanted in a vacation destination. We love the family atmosphere and open un-crowded beaches. The deciding factor in purchasing our vacation home was the location in Kure Beach. Since it is in the heart of Kure Beach, it is literally only a couple minutes to walk to the Kure Beach Pier, excellent restaurants, ice cream shop, arcade, beach store and convenience store. I love the idea that once we get to our beach house, we never have to get into the car again. And since it is only a 2 hour 15 minute drive from our home, we are able to enjoy it as often as we like. We have enjoyed building those special family memories in Kure Beach and we are sure you will too.

What makes this house unique

If you want something to do other then enjoy the beach, the Ferry to Southport (a guaint fishing village), North Carolina State Aquarium and the Fort Fisher Civil War Museum are only several miles away. Golf is just over the bridge and a visit to Wilmington for shopping or the river front is only a 20 minute drive. Carolina Beach is 5 miles away which offers charter boat fishing excursions, shopping and outdoor Sunday night family movies. Walk out on the Kure Beach pier around 9:00PM and have the best seat in the house to watch the fireworks. One of our favorite things to do is to take a walk on the beach at sun rise. It is always a beautiful sight and it is the best time to try to find sea shells on the beach. My son and I love to fish off the Kure Beach Pier and since it is open 24 hours, we can go anytime we want. Plus we have some great pictures of the fish we have pulled in.
