About Angela

We are from Pinehurst NC - family friends for 15 years. We share a love for the beach!

Angela purchased this house in 2012

Why Angela chose Southern Coast

We love the ocean views this property has as well as the proximity to the pier and great restaurants including Freddie's Italian. Kure beach is very laid back and friendly!

What makes this house unique

We love the spaciousness of the house and the room configuration which allows large crowds to have their own space. we also love the hardwood floors and granite kitchen counters!

Guestbook comments from the manager

House was so clean , so much space, short walk to the beach and lovely community. Everything you could need they have- chairs, wagon, umbrella. The food a Big Daddy's was amazing! We will be back! Wonderful trip!!

Good location and relaxing house for Wedding in Wilmington

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and fiance were getting married in Wilmington, NC on June 3, 2017 and we needed a house suitable for a number of people coming and going at different times. Some of us stayed for 7 nights and some of us were there for only 3 nights. The kitchen is well equipped and the use of the beach chairs and wagon made life easier as we were already transporting a huge amount for the wedding. There is also easy access to the beach and the restaurants nearby were also good - especially the diner near the pier. All in all we had a very enjoyable and relaxing time. Also the the owners were extremely easy to work with and also answered any concerns very quickly.

Great place, close to the beach, nicely appointed

  • 5 of 5

We just completed a friends' reunion for 6 of us, and the house was perfect. Plenty of comfortable rooms and an extremely easy walk to the beach. It was great to have some amenities as well, including beach chairs, some beach toys, bikes, and a beach wagon. Would stay again!

Another wonderfully relaxing week at the beach

  • 5 of 5

We just completed our second stay at Worth the Wave and it has served our two families of 4 very well for a week away at the beach. We love that it is quieter than places we have stayed in Carolina Beach and you can't beat proximity to the beach! Angela and other owners are very attentive and nice to work with.

Great Vacation House!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Kure Beach every year for over 15 years. "Worth the Wave" is one of the best houses we have stayed in! Our Family, 7 adults and 4 children, were all thrilled with the great setup of the house. We were all very comfortable and the house had everything we needed, and the house was very clean. The short walk to the beach was great and not an issue with small children. Sitting out on the deck in the evening was wonderful. The house is also very quiet, even with small children. We highly recommend this house.

Loved it!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have an extended family which always used to go to camping for Memorial Day. This was our very first time at Kure Beach, and we loved it!!!!! We have 3 teenagers, and they had blast. We were looking for something calm but fun. This was the best option :). "Worth at Wave" gave us everything we looked for, amenities, plenty of rooms so girls will be ok. We enjoyed those decks with dinners, drinks, breakfast etc. The bikes were so good because kiddos were able to go around the area. Adults & teens were able to be together, and also have our own spaces. Walk distance to beach, amazing! Easy access to restaurants, shopping centers and attractions. In a simple word, Fantastic. We are going to return for Labor Day yay! We highly recommend this property if you are planing a vacation getaway with the family.

Top notch

  • 5 of 5

My extended family has been going to Kure Beach for over 30 years, and as the family has grown we've needed to rent additional cottages to make room for everyone. We've stayed at Worth the Wave each of the past 2 summers and are booked again for summer of 2015. We have 2 families plus one adult staying in the house very comfortably (5 adults, 5 kids).

The cottage feels new and is in great shape; we love the large kitchen/family room which has become a gathering spot in evenings after kids are in bed. The porches facing the ocean have great views, and the one on the back of the house is perfect for outdoor dining. The bikes, beach chairs and toys are a nice plus. We also appreciate the DVR because we like to record Wimbledon (tennis!) in the morning and watch later that evening.

I would highly recommend this property to anyone -- just not the week we need it!!
