About the property

Come and enjoy our beautiful 2900 sq ft 6 bedroom, 4 bath beach house located just across the street from the ocean on a quiet dead end street with direct ocean access and only a two minute walk to the beach.

Our beach home is located in walking distance to the Ft. Fisher Civil War Museum, Ft. Fisher Battleground, Ft. Fisher State Park, and the North Carolina Aquarium.

Bring your bike and walking shoes to enjoy beautiful scenic views along the ocean and Fort Fisher which is the most beautiful spot on the Carolina coast with the Cape Fear river to the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the east.

The town of Kure Beach which is only one mile away has several wonderful restaurants and a walk on the Kure Beach Fishing Pier is always a great end to your evening with a delicious ice cream cone. Kure has a public area at the Joe Eakes Park on K ave. with Tennis Courts, Frisbee Golf, and a childs Play Area. Carolina Beach is only a couple of miles north and has an active commercial area with restaurants, charter fishing boats, specialty shops, banks, amusement park with rides, and beach rentals for bikes, kayaks, golf carts, etc.

The Ft. Fisher Ferry to the Historic village of Southport is only two miles away from our house. A Ferry ride to this quaint fishing village is a great afternoon activity for the family (and a great bargain--only $5 per car for a beautiful 30 minute cruise on the Cape Fear River. Have lunch at one of the waterfront restaurants and shop in the specialty and antique shops located in the heart of the historic district.

Wilmington is just 20 minutes away and is home to the Battleship North Carolina, Screen Gem Movie Studios, Carriage Rides through the historic district and along the waterfront, Antique Shops, and the Beautiful River Walk.


There are four areas to launch your boat on the Island. The North end which is about four miles from here has a free parking & launching area and another in the State Park with a launching fee. The South end has a free public ramp about two miles away and a ramp at the Air Force Recreation Area on the Cape Fear River.

The last two are for smaller craft or flat bottom boats.


6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms

The main level of the house has a spacious living room with TV & DVD.The dining area (which includes seating for six, plus four seats at counter and table for two on the deck) and a fully stocked kitchen are conveniently located in this great room area. This level also has a bedroom with a Queen bed and a full bath. The family room opens to a large ocean view deck for relaxing after your day at the beach or sightseeing.

The second level has three bedrooms and two baths, (Master has a King bed, balcony with ocean views and double vanity bathroom with Jacuzzi and separate shower. Bedroom II is a spacious room with a King bed and the third bedroom has twin beds. These two bedrooms share a hall bath.

These two bedrooms share a spacious bath. A second family room area is also located on this level which is a great get-away for the Kids or Dads. It has a 45' flat screen TV with DVD player. This room also has a sofa with a queen size bed.

Outside there is a enclosed shower and because the house faces north to south; in the morning the front porch is shady and in the afternoon when returning from the beach; the rear deck is shady. The house also is surrounded by lots of trees for additional shade.

Since there is no through traffic on our street it is a safe place for children. You can take a cooler to the beach; but it really is not necessary because the refrigerator is only 2 min. away. Beachfront convenience without Beachfront prices.

About Mike Lawson

We have been coming to Kure Beach for years and bought an Ocean front condo in 2001. After several years we decided that we would rather be off the ocean with more privacy, space, and SHADE! We love the quaint atmosphere of Pleasure Island and the less commercial area of Kure Beach. Historic Fort Fisher is

just 2/10 mi from our house and the residential area ends there resulting in less traffic and a wonderful area to walk and ride bikes. We love to walk around the FF battleground with the Cape Fear River on one side and the Ocean on the other. This area of the Island is truly beautiful. We love taking the Ferry to South Port and eating lunch on the water at the Provision Co. (good food-good atmosphere). Sometimes we ride our bikes (only $2 per bike & just 1 mi to SP). We are fortunate to live only 2 1/2 hrs away in Raleigh & enjoy escaping to paradise whenever we get the chance. You will not be disappointed with 'BEACH HOUSE'.

Mike Lawson purchased this house in 2008

Fantastic house and location with rare 6 bedroom for area.

  • 5 of 5

As a group of four adults and five kids of all ages we had MORE than enough room for our portion of a family reunion. We booked it as a 5 bedroom but the 2016 addition of another bedroom was a nice surprise and offered more privacy for teenagers. Some relatives have a rental across the street at the Ocean Dunes Condos and we found this house exactly as billed - a two minute (if that!) walk across to the beach. If this house isn't big enough for your group you could easily pair it with an Ocean Dunes unit or other walkable place and not feel like anyone is too far away from one another, we were frequently walking to and fro, back and forth from beach with ease. And Kure Beach is much less crowded than the Carolina Beach neighbor to the north - perfect for a family-friendly quiet beach getaway.

Mike was very easy to work with, very conscientious about his neighbors, neighborhood and as it's tucked into a residential area you'll feel right at home. All of the little extras such as all the dishes/kitchenware you'd ever need, laundry facility, basic beach gear and heaps of information in the house on local sites and restaurants are just gravy on top for our wonderful stay. I 100% agree with the review by Andrew "...just book it and don't worry. You'll be satisfied." We will certainly be staying on our next trip to Kure Beach!

Kure vacation

  • 5 of 5

Vacationed at this excellently appointed beach home with my family members for a week from July 16 to 23. I heartily recommend this home fro a quiet family get-together free from the hustle and bustle of the other touristy spots along the coast. Especially attractive is the quick walk to the beach. The furnishings are perfect and nothing is lacking in that department.

Great house and owner, exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

This house is great and perfect for a large group. Plenty of room and even a back yard for kids to play. It is located off of the main road, which is especially nice if you have small kids, but is still a very short walk to the beach. The house is exactly as advertised, so if you like what you see on VRBO, just book it and don't worry. You will be satisfied. Also, the homeowner is very quick to answer any texts or emails and he is a breeze to work with.

Great Multi-Family Rental

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a week along with another family. The house was well-stocked with everything we wanted to relax and enjoy it as home away from home. There were 11 of us including 5 children with wide age ranges and everyone was happy in this home. With 2 living spaces and 3 floors, there was plenty of room to gather (or get away) as needed! This house really is 2 minutes from the beach but close to many sites in the area. We particularly enjoyed taking the ferry into Southport one morning and enjoying lunch at The Provision Company. Mike was easy to communicate with and was genuinely interested in us having a nice vacation. We will be back!

Excellent Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for Memorial Day Weekend. It was absolutely perfect. It fit our entire family including parents and grandparents. The location was great. Close to many attractions but far away to where we did not have any of the Kure Beach/Carolina Beach traffic. The owner made sure to keep in contact with us prior, during and after our stay to make sure we had a good time. It had plenty of amenities. Our 2 year old wanted to stay out on the deck all day. It was close enough to the beach where we could walk to it. Definitely a plus as we did not have to worry about parking. Highly recommend this house for anyone staying in the area. We hope to be back again.
