Ocean on one side and marshes with creeks for kayaking/ flounder fishing just 100 yards away. It is why they call this' Paradise Island'. The North Carolina Aquarium is at Fort Fisher and is one of the states most popular attractions. They also offer summer camps for kids from 9am to 1 pm. The kids love the camps at the aquarium with indoor and outdoor education (shelling, shrimping and beaching). There also is a civil war museum with live reenactments. It is nice to take the car on the ferry from Fort Fisher across the Cape Fear River and feed the seagulls.

About Scott

We are a family of four from Charlotte ,NC. We have two daughters who enjoy the outdoors.

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Year after year, this is the best.

  • 5 of 5

After years of trying to find the perfect place we found Seawatch. We had been staying in a different place each year in the Carolina beach, Ocean isle and Kure beach area. We just couldn't find the perfect place. Then we found Seawatch. There are 12 of us, 4 adults and 8 kids. This place is perfect! It's a short walk to the pool, just down the stairs, through the yard and you're there. The beach is about a 3-5 minute walk (just depends on how many kids you're bringing). The house is located on a quiet street that is kid friendly. We have spent many afternoons sitting on the front porch watching the kids kick around a soccer ball. The inside of the house is perfect. The rooms are spacious and clean. We feel like we're at home. The kitchen is fully stocked with all of the cooking supplies you need to cook for yourself. All of the bedrooms have nice comfortable beds and plenty of closet and drawer space. All but one has a TV, so bring your laptop or tablet if you like to watch TV before bed. The family room has enough space for all of us to sit around and relax. The kitchen has enough seating for our big family dinners. The owner is a pleasure to deal with and the price is extremely reasonable for everything you get. Trust me, stop looking and book this place. You will not regret it.
