You'll be just moments away from famous Fort Fisher. Only 1 mile to Kure Beach Fishing Pier and few more miles to Carolina Beach Fishing Pier.

About 1/2 mile down road you can take about a 30 min. ride on the Ferry to Historic Southport, where you can step back in time for the afternoon. Kids and adults love to take this ferry ride and watch the seagulls flying above! Wilmington is only 20-30 minutes away, where there are many, many restaurants to chose from. There's shopping, tons of antique and consignment shops. There's historic down-town with the River Walk, Horse & Buggy Rides, plenty of night life with various musical genres, the famous NC Battleship which you can tour, and the list goes on and on.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I've lived in near-by Wilmington most of my life. My husband, of 20 yrs., is from Louisiana. So, my heart is with the ocean, while his is partially still with the Cajun life style...which I love as well! Owning a vacation home to rent out has been a DREAM of mine for many years; partially due to frustrations we've encountered when vacationing ourselves. I was convinced there had to be a better way; where guests could actually relax on their vacation, and go home feeling rejuevinated, not like they spent their vacation working! It has been 5 yrs. of hard work, which I hope results in YOU, the customer, having an awesome vacation and wanting to return!!

Why the Owner Chose Kure Beach, NC, USA:
We bought our vacation rental in Kure Bch. because of the great reputation of being such a safe neighborhood, and the beautiful, clean beach. Also, it's just a couple of miles from Carolina Beach, but without as much traffic to deal with. It's just a lovely little quaint beach community, w/ such friendly people and right next to Fort Fisher and the Ferry. Fort Fisher is so beautiful and has such rich history tied to the Civil War, etc. It features a Museum, Aquarium, and they even do re-enactments of Civil War period during certain times of the year! You can take the Ferry over to historic Southport. Kure Bch is just an all-around awesome location; bringing you back to the days of simple beach life, but w/ plenty of night-life and recreations w/in a few miles.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love that we have an excellent ocean view from our deck, we have privacy trees, quick deeded access to the it's a very quick walk across the street. We love cooking seafood and visiting the awesome restaurants around town, and in nearby Wilmington. There's a lake a few miles away, to walk around. Our son is an avid skate-boarder; so we can take him to the near-by skate park so he can do his thing! There are lovely little shops nearby.
