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

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.

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!

Excellent vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property, loved being right on the ocean and on a quiet stretch of the beach. This was our first time to Kure Beach and we thoroughly enjoyed the laid back, family friendly atmosphere. The house is in great shape, very comfortable for our family of five. Do wish there was a dining room table and chairs. Overall a very pleasant stay and we will definitely keep your place in mind for future trips. Thank you!

Week at Kure Beach at Flops Required

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week. The condo is beautiful with great access to the beach. The condo is listed to host 8, but we suggest no more that four. There are only four deck chairs. Also there is not a dining room table. We planned for six but ended up with four. It would have been quite crowded with our six. We did find a card table and chairs suitable for games and meals.

Excellent oceanfront property.

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at this location for several years now and fall in love with it each time. It is has great beach and ocean views. This property is also in a great location. We cannot wait to stay there again next year.

Would have no doubt been a 5 star stay, but the internet connection did not work very well this time. This was the first year we have had that issue. Would suggest upgrading TV channels/internet.

However, those issues were minimal compared to how wonderful our stay was! You cannot beat the location and convenience of this property. Will definitely book again next year!!!!!
