Activities and attractions in Kure Beach Atlantic Coast

You will be surrounded by plenty of local attractions. Great fishing is available -- on the Kure fishing pier, by charter boat, or surf fish right off the beach. For sightseeing, Historic Fort Fisher Civil War museum, hiking in Carolina Beach State Park, and the NC Aquarium are favorite local attractions on Pleasure Island within minutes. A short drive will take you to historic Wilmington where you can tour the Battleship North Carolina or historic homes-- just 15 miles away. You may wish to take a day trip to charming Southport, by the NC Ferry system at nearby Fort Fisher. There is always something to do for everyone in the family!

For those of you who have vacationed at Kure Beach before, you know what a true gem this clean, uncrowded beach is! There are no condos or high-rises nearby. You will find this special home to be nice and quiet since it is a duplex where owners on the other side do not rent. It is located in an all-residential section of the beach, so you will find it to be very low key and private--perfect for a family vacation or a romantic getaway. You can practically have the beach to yourself off season. And for those who haven't yet experienced the pleasures of Kure Beach, you're in for a real treat! With moderate temperatures and so much available to see and do, it's a perfect vacation for all ages at any time of the year.

With several Kure Beach restaurants only a 10 minute walk away, you can dine out or enjoy a few cocktails at the local pub. For a faster paced night life, head just 3 miles down the road to Carolina Beach where you will find a wide selection of restaurants, bars, and live entertainment. There you will also find carnival rides and games for the kids on the boardwalk.

About Jerry Cody

I have always loved the ocean and have sailed and scuba dived for several years so it was a natural progression to someday own a beach property. Currently living in Durham, NC, I love the close proximity to Kure Beach.

Jerry Cody purchased this condo in 2012

Why Jerry Cody chose Southern Coast

We love Kure Beach because of the beautiful uncrowded beaches, the variety of activities close by, and the close proximity to Wilmington, shopping, and dining. We worked tirelessly to renovate our place into a beautiful beach vacation home that families and couples could enjoy. With Kure Beach's family friendly environment and Carolina beach's more upbeat night life, we believe a vacation at 'Flops Required' will meet all your vacation desires. Please contact us for any further questions you may have about this property.

What makes this condo unique

You will find this property to be unique in the fact that being totally renovated in 2013, it offers all the new amenities that a larger, newer property has to offer , but in a more affordable package for smaller groups. There are very few properties with 3 bedrooms that also have 3 full baths like this one. Combine that with the stunning ocean front views and we believe you have a great place to spend your vacation.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the beach and the condo! Great fun! Would go back in a heartbeat! A few beach chairs would be a great addition for the guests that fly to Wilmington. We found them to be a little expensive in Kure Beach to purchase and leave behind.

We had a wonderful experience, thank you very much.

Excellent Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

This was our best vacation rentals on the beach. The condo was exceptionally clean, the beds were comfortable, and the kitchen was great for preparing meals. We spent much of our time on the back deck, which was perfect for enjoying the ocean, while being in the shade. The outdoor shower is a nice touch when coming in from a day in the sand. We would recommend this condo and Kure Beach to anyone planning a beach trip.

Nice property for small families

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and the unit was clean and well appointed. Solid surface floors in every room and it has 3 full baths which was really nice. It even had a small supply of beach toys which our grandson enjoyed. It was a short walk to the pier and restaurants and this end of the island is pretty quiet. We spent a lot of time on the covered deck area watching the Ocean. At night you can easily see the lights on the pier. All of us were surprised to find the outdoor shower had hot and cold running water, since our experience has been that these usually have cold water only. It was a really comfortable rental and the owner was very pleasant to deal with.

Flops Required was perfect for our beach getaway!

  • 4 of 5

The house is steps away from the beach with fabulous views of the ocean. We really enjoyed being able to sit on the balcony and enjoy the sun and surf. It is minutes away from a grocery store and to the boardwalk on Carolina Beach, the fishing pier, NC aquarium and Fort Fisher Recreation area. The bedrooms were spacious enough for myself and the 4 other women travelling with me - the beds and pillows were comfortable and we woke each morning well rested. We did not have the space to all eat at one table, but were okay with splitting up between the table on the deck (the weather was perfect for this) and the counter seats. The house is nicely updated, very clean and comfortable. The common area is on the small side, but enough for the 4 of us who played board games or watched TV. The outside shower was a bonus for rinsing off the salt and sand. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would choose it again. Thanks!

Relaxing Beach Stay

  • 4 of 5

We are a family of 4 from Colorado and had not been to North Carolina before. The condo was very comfortable, and our small kids loved the bunk beds. We stayed the week prior to the "season" starting so the beach boardwalks were not open, so that was disappointing. The owner was very communicative and quick to respond.
