About Craig Douglas

We've stayed at many North Carolina destinations, and our location at South Kure Beach is by far our favorite. We chose a location which is south of the pier. It has a small beach town feel, everyone is super friendly, and we have great access to Fort Fisher, the Kure Pier, and Carolina Beach. Our flat roads with sparse traffic are ideal for bicycling, skateboarding, or rollerblading. We're sure that you'll love Stone's Throw too!

Craig Douglas purchased this house in 2009

Why Craig Douglas chose Southern Coast

Kure Beach is the ideal small beach town. We are located in South Kure Beach where the streets are only three deep. This means that the beaches are MUCH less crowded than other neighboring communities. Also, with the building height restriction of 30 feet, the ocean views are much more unobstructed. The beach access is literally just steps away, is right at the end of our street, and you can be on the beach in less than 30 seconds from our house! We are just a short walk to the Kure Beach pier, and just about 3 minutes by car to historic Fort Fisher, and the Southport Ferry. Carolina Beach is just a 5 minute drive away.

What makes this house unique

Our property is recently constructed and has upscale beach themed furnishings. The master suite is very private, and features a private deck, and a large bathroom with Jacuzzi tub. There are decks/balconies on the living room level, and master bedroom level. The kitchen and living room area have a 'great room' feel, which is ideal for entertaining, and re-connecting with family and friends. There is very little traffic on the adjoining streets which are very flat, and ideal for walking or a bike ride. Everyone just loves our gourmet kitchen, and the casual island seating!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the best vacation that we can remember. We have stayed in vacation homes before, but you do a fantastic job! The fact that you even think to leave a wagon to go to the beach and a propane grill shows that you know how to do this right . We really hope to make that a regular destination for us. Thank you so much for sharing your home. It far exceeded our expectations!

Stones Throw is truly exceptional!!

  • 5 of 5

Stones Throw was exactly what my family and I were looking for! Craig and Cathy's property was exactly as described. The home and property were beautiful! It had everything you can think of to make a family vacation just perfect! Craig and Cathy put forward much effort to ensure that their guests have everything they need for their stay. Everything was so well organized and spotless! All we had to do was unpack and head down to the beach for some much needed fun in the sun! The bikes that are provided were a big hit and the convenience of having the beach, restaurants and activities so close made it easy to make lasting family memories. From beginning to end Craig and Cathy were there with any questions we may have had and gave great tips on restaurants, places to visit and info on the surrounding areas.  Wilmington was an awesome place to visit, so many things to see and do there. The Sunset Cruise on Cape Fear was spectacular!! Thanks for a Wonderful Vacation. We hope to return for a second round in the future. We highly recommend this property to anyone thinking about having a stay at Stones Throw in Kure Beach, NC!!!

Stones Throw- The place to be in Kure Beach

  • 5 of 5

A very nice stay! Just plan on relaxation and easy living for a few days. We enjoyed the short walk to the beach each day as well as the pier. We took day trips to Wilmington and Southport via the ferry to explore the area and enjoyed coming back to a place that felt like home. Our children liked the surf room and the master outside deck was a nice touch to start the day. Cathy and Craig are very accessible, offering their help if we needed anything and Craig called to make sure we got in OK, very appreciated. Kure Beach rental at its best. Thank You Cathy and Craig!

A lot of bang for your beach buck!

  • 5 of 5

This property delivered on every level. The house was beautifully decorated with tasteful beach accents and well maintained with updated amenities and floorplan. Located in a family friendly neighborhood with direct beach access across the street. Kure Beach has a small town feel with plenty of room on the lifeguarded beach. Ample opportunities for day trips with the aquarium, ferry to Southport, and Wilmington all nearby.

The owners were also very easy to work with an organized and approachable business style. They take pride in their home and go the extra mile to ensure their renters are comfortable and satisfied.

Would definitely recommend A Stones Throw and would enjoy a return visit!

Owner's Response: We are very pleased that you enjoyed your vacation at Stones Throw Kure Beach. We strive to make the property a "home away from home" rather than just another beach rental. Also, thanks for mentioning the proximity to the beach - our guests are pleasantly surprised how close to the beach access we are, which makes it convenient for bathroom breaks, food and beverage runs, or to quickly get back to the house for something you forgot. Just a minute to the beach access...
