About the property

3 bed, 3 bath home with separate apartment included

New for 2018: We are NO LONGER a pet friendly property. We have installed a brand new stainless steel dishwasher in the kitchen and new ceiling fans in the two upstairs bedrooms.

Upstairs: Master Bedroom - King size bed

Second Bedroom - King size bed

Living Room - Twin roll away bed

Downstairs: Queen size bed and Twin sofa

We provide pillows, bedspreads, and blankets. You will need to bring your own sheets and towels. We offer a linen package option (sheets and towels) if needed, just let us know.

There is nothing like going to the beach on vacation and staying at your own private oceanfront home. Enjoy our own walkway that leads you to a quiet section of beach away from all the tourists. We are far enough from the pier so most tourists don't venture that far yes close enough to get there with a good stretch of the legs. Our second floor deck extends the length of the house and has plenty of seating. You can relax out there for morning coffee while watching the sun rise and then again later on in the day for afternoon drinks. Upstairs we have an open floor plan with living room and kitchen, two large bedrooms with king size beds, and two bathrooms, including a master bathroom. The downstairs suite has a living room, kitchen, bedroom with king size bed, bathroom, and laundry area. This downstairs suite is private, accessible with outside stairs only, and perfect for someone who wants a bit more privacy from the group. You will have a garage and two additional parking spaces. Dreamers Den is nicely equipped and has flat screen TV's in each bedroom and in the living room. We have a DVD player and sound bar too for maximum entertainment. Once you come to Dreamers Den you'll want to return year after year. And you will always be welcome. Note: the downstairs suite is only accessible from the outside stairs.

Great Pet Friendly Beach Rental

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable rental with great views of and access to the beach. They welcome pets and have a fenced in area for pets to do their business which is a great help. We will come again.

Well Worn

  • 2 of 5

We stayed in June of 2017. The property was, in general, dirty and in need of a facelift. Bathrooms were dirty in corners, lights were burned out in the kitchen, the toaster was not functional, the door to the master bath stuck and rubbed on the floor, the entry door to the deck was worn and difficult to close and lock. The air conditioner in the lower unit was not functional until the unit was plugged into another outlet via an extension cord that we brought with us. Management was notified and was happy with our ingenuity without offering to fix the problem correctly. We also reported sparks from the unit to no avail. The management team was pretty unfriendly as well. At least the beach was great.

Owner's Response: Michael: While we appreciate your response we were not pleased with you as renters in the least - both in how you spoke to/treated us and the condition of the property after you left. You called and said the a/c wasn't working downstairs. We had our electrician come right over and he re-routed a circuit since water penetration had caused the existing circuit to fail. You didn't mention a second sparking outlet otherwise we would have had him repair that too while he was there. We disagree with the cleanliness of the hone. It is an older beach home and does look dated (as per the pictures on-line) but it was professionally cleaned prior to your arrival. They may have missed some things during their clean but overall it was clean for sure. Regarding us being "unfriendly", we try our best to work with everyone we rent too. We realize that in the customer service business some renters are more pleasant to deal with than others but we try our best with everyone. Now on our behalf, although told the check in time was 4:00PM and an early check in was available it didn't stop you from trying and we had to turn you away as we were still cleaning the property when you arrived early. When I called you you insisted we were done since you saw our car drive away. I had to tell you that we were working on a repair caused by a prior renter and would be back to finish up shortly. You did not tell us you were bringing a dog even though we state a $150. pet fee. when you booked. When you checked out it was one of the dirtiest any renter has left a property this year - trash and dirty dishes everywhere. While we're not perfect, we try. You were unpleasant to deal with and didn't treat our property with respect. Perhaps it's best that we not work with each other in the future.

We loved the Dreamers Den!

  • 5 of 5

The Dreamers Den is very charming and well maintained. It is furnished simply but in very good taste. It was perfect for two couples with the two very comfortable king size beds. We didn't need to use the downstairs unit at all. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and the whole cottage was very clean. Loved sitting on the deck with a glass of wine and watching the birds and the ocean. It was a nice one mile walk to the pier but we were far enough away from it to avoid all that noise and congestion. A very nice quiet location close to the Aquarium and Fort Fisher's beautiful walks and beaches. The beach in front of the cottage is nice and wide . We enjoyed going down to the south end of the island for sunset each evening. The ferry over to Southport is just a few moments away. Southport makes a pleasant excursion for the day especially if you go to Provisions for lunch! Kure Beach is very lovely and quiet with many very attractive upscale new homes, yet it was only 10 minutes to Carolina beach with all the restaurants and activity one could want. We would definitely recommend Dreamers Den.

Owner's Response: Hey Martin: Glad you enjoyed Dreamers Den. You mentioned the grill propane tank was low, did you run out? If so and you called, we keep a full spare propane tank in the garage. We would have been happy to go over and switch out tanks. Thank you for your review. You are welcome anytime. David

Nice ocean front property

  • 3 of 5

The best part of this property is its location. Right on the beach and close to the aquarium. That was exactly what I was looking for. I brought my 3 kids and mother in law with me for a few days over the Christmas break. The house itself is just ok. No smaller unbreakable dishes for kids and the upstairs is fairly small when you add 3 kids and no extra things some houses provide like books, games and beach toys. Overall this was an ok house with a great location.

Owner's Response: Hey Beth: Thank you for your feedback, it's important to us. Per your suggestion we will be adding unbreakable kids plates and cups as well as some books, games, and beach toys. This will all help make Dreamers Den a better beach home for our guests. You are welcome anytime. David

Great Vacation House on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfectly clean and had all the basics to make our stay comfortable. The fenced yard area for our dogs was perfect. The view of the Ocean is phenomenal. Off season meant the beach was sparsely populated, much to our liking.
