About the property

Beautifully furnished one bedroom, one bath condo with balcony

This condo on the second floor comes beautifully furnished with a fully stocked kitchen,bunk beds and a fold out sofa. The balcony has 2 captain chairs and a table with 4 chairs to enjoy a meal with the sound of the surf and what a view! Be sure to check out my short video from the balcony. 50 inch flat screen TV in the living room and a 32 inch flat screen in the bedroom for those late night shows. you can be on the beach or in our guest only pool in 60 seconds to enjoy the sun and read a book. No smoking indoors and no pets, HOA rule.

Please note that if you expand the location map we are actually located in the 3rd. building traveling south.

Our property has undergone major renovation during 2016. The pool has been completely refurbished and with new decking and fencing, all of the old sandbags have been dug up and removed with new bags installed properly and in front of the buildings, leaving the beach completely free of everything but sand.

Located at the south end of the island, it is in the last complex next to the Ft. Fisher state park. It is located within walking distance of the museum and about a mile from the NC ferry dock and the NC Aquarium.

It has a kitchen fully stocked and ready. Beautifully furnished and stocked with linen , towels.

Jump on the ferry and head to Southport NC if you like and visit some good restaurants and antique shops, the fare is only $5 a carload. Also down that way is the NC Aquarium which is a great place for young and old alike.

Drive north a couple of miles and visit Carolina Beach NC. They have some more great places to eat and shop.

Also there is a large boat dock where you can charter a fishing trip. Don't miss their boardwalk which is loaded with things to see and do.

Kure Beach has a pier to fish from and a small shop with some very good icecream. Last year the town completed a boardwalk of their own with a pavilion that always has some type of entertainment going on. In short Kure Beach is the way beaches used to be before the big developers entered into communities and threw up there big hotels. Kure Beach does not allow any structure to be built over 30 ft. high.

We accept PayPal , email me for invoice.

About Gary Linder

I am a retired system examiner for the office of the New York state Comptroller. Jim is a retired diesel mechanic who still works at it part time.

Owning on the shore was a life long dream of ours which we accomplished in 1999. We love the time we spend at our unit and hope all our guests enjoy their stay as much as we do.

Gary Linder purchased this condo in 1999

Why Gary Linder chose Kure Beach

We Love North Carolina, and we like the fact that we are located right next to the Fort Fisher state park and a short drive of about 1 mile to the ferry that goes to Southport NC.

Kure Beach is like the beaches used to be in the 60's and 70's as a matter of fact no structure over 30 feet is allowed to be built in Kure Beach. This unit is walking distance to the Ft. Fisher Museum which is just about 300 feet down the road on the west side.

What makes this condo unique

Taking our car one mile down the road to the NC Ferry and for $5 a carload we cross the intracoastal to Southport NC to shop the antique shops and enjoy a fine restaurant.

Also we are that close to the NC aquarium, it is really nice, the kids will love it!

Kure Beach recently completed a very nice boardwalk and a Pavilion for special events. There is a fishing pier for the fishermen along with a bait and tackle shop and some very good ice-cream. The pier and the boardwalk are about 1.5 miles north of the condo.

What a find!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this lovely little condo. My mother and I planned a trip with my three children (6 mos, 2, 8). At the last minute my husband was able to go as well. I was worried about space but this condo is larger than it looks in the pictures. Sleeping would be more comfortable with two adults, especially if you have older children. The bunk beds are very comfortable and smartly designed. I was able to put my two year old to sleep with everyone awake in the living room because of the curtain and night light inside. He really enjoyed it. My eight year old stayed on the top bunk and there was a a safety rail. The kitchen is well stocked and the stove and appliances work well. We never even went out to eat we had such a lovely time at this beach/condo. We stayed on the beach for hours and at night we ordered pizza from Freds or cooked, enjoying dinner on the balcony with the sound of the waves. The beach is literally a walk around to the next building. At low tide there are rocks with algae, crabs, clams, and other creatures that will give hours of entertainment. The beach was not crowded at all as this is the last condos before Fort Fisher. I highly recommend for a family with small children or a couple.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us and for the nice review. We hope to see you again! This is the time of year when the fisherman gather because we have the best fishing on the Island! The Kure beach fishing tournament is held in October. The sand comes and it goes. This has been a difficult year because of the strong off shore storms. Good part is it comes back as fast as it goes! Thanks again for your positive comments, The owners
