Scott purchased this House in 2008
Why Scott chose Kure Beach
We purchased in Seawatch because it is best FAMILY community on the island. Many island homes are not in a community. We love the easy beach access, community pool and wildlife. The island has so many activities. In just a few years we have so many memories.

Upscale private community that does not have much traffic at all. Private gated beach access with cabana and bathroom for quests and owners only. Community pool ,tennis and playground.
