Awesome Beach Vacation
We had an awesome vacation. The house was perfect for our family. Very clean and great location. We can't wait to stay here again.
KB 2020 - graduation
Excellent location and property, well maintained, and excellent property management. If you have teenage drivers - not enough parking - as they all have a car! But, otherwise - all excellent experience
Thanks so much for choosing to stay in our house again this year - I'm glad you and your family had a good time!
This is the perfect vacation home.
This place was amazing. Unbelievable home, fully loaded. One of the best places we have ever stayed. I look forward to booking again. Direct, private beach access. Fully loaded home. Amazing experience. Thanks Gary and team!
Thanks again for booking with us, and thanks also for that very nice review!
Lovely home away with family
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The house was beautiful, clean and well appointed for a wonderful beach weekend with family. We ordered fabulous take out meals from Michaels restaurant and Cape Fear Boil Company so we could eat at the house in a relaxed and comfortable setting. It was wonderful and convenient. We couldn’t be happier with all the amenities the owners provided in their lovely home just across the street from the beach access!
Everything was just as advertised
This property was one of the best houses my family and I have ever stayed in. The owner, as well as the property manager were extremely helpful with any questions and concerns and made every attempt to ensure our stay was the best that it could be. We also experienced hurricane Dorian the week prior to our arrival and weren't sure we would be able to make the trip. They not only stayed in touch during the entire duration of the hurricane but stayed in contact well afterwards to ensure everything would be in order for our stay. If you're looking for a property to rent that is truly worry and hassle free, this is that property. The kitchen is fully stocked and furnished as is the rest of the house and that just made it more like a home away from home. Definitely can't go wrong with this property.

About Gary and Tracy Walker
We are Gary and Tracy Walker. We live in Western North Carolina and have a love of the Carolinas' coast. We have especially loved the Wilmington area for years and had dreamed of owning a home near there and the beaches. As of 2015 that dream became a reality. Pelican's Perch is now our home away from home and the place in which we plan to live when we retire. Both of us are graduates of Appalachian State University in Boone, NC. Currently Gary works in sales and Tracy is a RN employed by the State of NC. We have two great young adult "kids", plus our little dog, Charlie. We very much appreciate our vacation renters and we strive to make their experience the best it can be.

Why Gary and Tracy Walker chose Kure Beach
Kure Beach, Carolina Beach, and the Wilmington area in general make up some of our very favorite places. We love the weather, the people, the beaches, the food, the live music, and the abundant nature and wildlife of Pleasure Island. The intracoastal waterway, marina, and boat access areas are just perfect for boating enthusiasts. Nearby Wilmington provides a cool downtown scene and Riverwalk with excellent food and drinks overlooking the Cape Fear River. Pelican's perch is situated on the island's second row of beach homes, which means the beach is right across the street. Simply put, it's just a perfect location in a wonderful place.
What makes this House unique
We believe that Pelican's Perch beach house is among the best houses on the island. Its location right between the town centers of Carolina Beach and Kure Beach makes it very convenient to all points of either town, and both towns offer their own charming personalities and attractions. On each end of the island there are stretches of undeveloped beach that you can actually drive your 4 wheel drive vehicle on. There's an access fee but these beaches are a sight to behold. To the north is Freeman Park where fun-loving people flock to party, fish, and camp right with their vehicles on the beach. On the south end is the more family-friendly State Park where alcohol is not allowed and you'll see a bit more nature. If you've got a 4 wheel drive then these rare beach-driving areas are sure to please. You don't have to drive anywhere to enjoy a beach, though. Pelican's Perch is across the street from the community's private beach access and gazebo. When we say the house is just steps from the beach we really mean it! One of the best and least-crowded strands of beach on the island is right there for you to enjoy. The house's 2nd row corner location means you also have direct access to the neighborhood streets that are off the higher-traffic main road. That's worth a lot for relaxing bike rides or for taking the "back way" to bypass heavy main road traffic when going out. You don't have to pay ocean front prices because it's on the second row, but because of the beach access area you get a very nice ocean view from the second or third floor decks. You also get an excellent ocean view from the main living and dining area since that's on the 3rd floor. The bedrooms' being on the 1st and 2nd floor makes for easier work carrying in luggage, and the ocean can be seen from a couple of bedrooms. No matter what you like most about the island, we believe that a stay in Pelican's Perch will make your family want to return again and again
