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 Kure Beach

I 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, I believe a vacation at 'Flops Required' will meet all your vacation desires. Please contact me 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 I believe you have a great place to spend your vacation.

Great location

  • 3 of 5

The location is perfect--close to Kure Beach Pier and Fort Fisher. The kitchen is extremely well appointed--better than other houses we've rented in KB. The house was very clean.

Unfortunately, the furniture is sparse and very uncomfortable. Anyone with lower back pain would have no place to sit in the entire house.

I brought my own plywood boards which I put on a chair I borrowed

from family.

Previous reviews have noted there was no dining table or chairs, only bar stools at the kitchen bar. That has been remedied with a card table and four metal folding chairs (also not comfortable).

The rental has a common wall shared with another unit. It hasn't been very well sound insulated, and we were able to hear almost every word and step next door.

On the positive side, we did see lots of dolphins during our week's rental.

We took this rental because we wanted an almost stand alone property. Next time we'll rent a single house or an end unit at Ocean Dunes.

Owner's Response: After renting my place for 5 years I have NEVER had less than a 4 star review. This property has multiple reviews going back several years that demonstrate this rental is easily one of the top rentals on Kure Beach. Please take the time to see ALL other reviews that show a clear and objective review of this property. This renter also stayed in the Winter where she could not take advantage of the best spot which is outside at the table on the deck that seats 4 people comfortably. This unit is a duplex and the couple next door are retired, I have NEVER heard any noise from their side and NEVER had any renter complain about this either. The wall is insulated VERY well. The pictures are relevant and up to date and show the unit exactly the way you will see it when you arrive.

Wonderful and comfortable beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at this beautiful duplex. It has been meticulously remodeled and updated. I love that there is no carpet anywhere, which means no moisture trapped underneath. In fact, there are no signs of moisture anywhere in this house. It might seem odd for me to state that, but I've rented places in the past that did have mold or mildew, which caused me to get sick, so I am always paranoid now and want to mention it for anyone else who might be as paranoid as I am. The beds were all comfortable, as are the couches in the living room. Not your traditional beach furniture, thank goodness! I also loved that the decor wasn't overly "beachy" because it all gave a good feeling of being at home but on vacation. I am so grateful to the owners for being able to capture that feeling for guests. There is SO much closet and storage space!! The kitchen is well-equipped; although, we always seem to run into the issue of the only non-stick frying pan that would be good for eggs has been scratched. If you're renting someone's place, please be courteous and do not use metal utensils in their non-stick pots and pans. :) We decided to buy one and add it to our box of beach essentials. Overall, this is a wonderful and very comfortable beach house. No doubt you will be relaxed and enjoy your stay here. I hope to return again.

Owner's Response: Kathryn, THANK YOU so much for the kind and detailed review of "Flops Required". I really enjoy seeing people appreciate the work I put into the house to make it the best it can be for my renters. I will look into replacing the nonskid frying pan for a new one, thanks for pointing that out. I hope to see you again next year!
