About the property

3300 sq ft. with elevator access, granite, hardwoods with amazing ocean views

Bella Mar is one of the largest townhomes/duplexes on Pleasure Island. This beautifully decorated 5 bed, 4 bath sleeps 12 and is perfect for families both small and large. Because of the staggered design, this home offers excellent privacy with fantastic views from the deck. No sharing of decks or climbing of stairs to take in the view with this property! Take the elevator to the top floor of this reverse floor plan home and you will find an expansive family room with cathedral ceiling, hardwoods, 50' tv, ocean view deck, dinning space for 14+ and a large gourmet kitchen with granite, cherry cabinets and stainless steel appliances. You will also find King Master #1 with new floors, tall cathedral ceilings, and a large attached bath with a huge walk in shower.

Going down one level, you have a second large King Master #2, also with new floors, walk in closet and Master bath #2. Stroll down the hall to find bedroom #3 with both a queen and day bed. Br. #4 is a great kid’s room with a bunk over full plus a daybed. In the hallway you will find access to the conveniently located full washer and dryer, as well as shared bath #3.

The lower level features tile floors and a second family room with full bath #4. The sleeper sofa converts this to bedroom #5 by night. The enclosed garage offers great storage for all of your beach toys, bikes, etc.

The location of this home is in the perfect spot. Go from watching the waves on the top deck to being in them via a quick three minute walk!

Not in the beach mood? The Kure boardwalk also starts in the same location. You can take a brisk walk with your coffee in the morning and a slow scenic walk to dinner at night. The boardwalk ends at the newly built Kure Beach Ocean front Park. Hang out on one of the swings or come to listen to a band on the covered stage.

Kure is a small quiet town and built for relaxing.

Want a little more excitement? Head up to Carolina beach, where you can find great restaurants and bars, a carnival for the kids and dont forget to get in line for Britts Doughnuts. Well worth the wait!

Rainy worries, just plan to visit the N.C. Aquarium or Civil War museum. Both located just a short ride away in Ft. Fisher. Aslo in Ft. Fisher is the ferry to the quaint town of Southport. A great place to spend a few hours. Going in the opposite direction is the Historic District of Wilmington. Stroll the streets, browse the shops and enjoy some great riverfront restaurants. So much to do and all just minutes away!

Why Jeffrey Ritz chose Kure Beach

Unusually large townhome with room to spread out. Super easy access to the best entrance to Kure Beach. No roll your chairs, coolers and kids right onto the sand!

Stay here if you can!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The rental was spacious, comfortable and clean. There was plenty of space for all 11 of us. It was super convenient to the beach, and there were plenty of beach toys, chairs, boogie boards with a wagon to get them to the beach. The kitchen had all of the needed items so cooking meals was easy. Jeff was very nice and responsive as well. Renting here made our stay much more enjoyable. Thank you!

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfect for our family vacation. There were 6 adults and 8 children and so much space. The layout of the home was perfect. The view from third floor balcony is beautiful. Home was clean and had everything we needed. The elevator was a great help with groceries and luggage. The property owner, Jeffrey was amazing to work with. I would highly recommend this home for your stay at the beach. Very close to beach access. This is the best home we have stayed in and we would definitely stay here again.

Great house in Kure Beach

  • 5 of 5

The house is very well maintained and had everything our family needed for a week at Kure Beach. The pictures are spot on. Just a short walk to the N Ave beach access, the location was very convenient in getting to and from the beach. Would definitely rent again. Thanks!

Bella Mar is a beautiful property! It is quite large and everyone has plenty of room. We had six adults and two young children and everyone had plenty of space! The bedrooms and living areas were decorated beautifully. Everything was spotless! It is well appointed and just a very short walk from the beach! We will definitely stay there in the future!

We rented the house for a week. It was a great stay, a block from the beach and accommodated my whole family (2 parents and 4 children), my parents, sister & brother-in-law. The property was clean, bright, and spacious. We were beyond pleased with the property.
