About Rich and Sandy Brannin

We built this as a vacation home for our family of five and planned to try and maximize the space for groups. Knowing grandparents, friends, etc would travel with us we made sure each bedroom had its private bath. We loved the area so much that we moved here ourselves in 2012 from WV. Kure beach is a family friendly area and we have felt like it was a safe place for our kids to vacation, play and grow.

Rich and Sandy Brannin purchased this house in 2007

Why Rich and Sandy Brannin chose Kure Beach

The location is great. We have enjoyed being a block off the beach and off the main road. The kids can play outside without too much worry and it is quiet. The house provides all the basic needs with some luxuries such as bikes, beach chairs, tent and beach toys to limit your packing. With its proximity to the pier, aquarium, Ft Fisher and Carolina Beach boardwalk there is always something to do.

Lovely house - comfortable and close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

3 generations enjoyed this 'HomeAway'. Grandma took the bedroom on the main floor; Mom and two young teens climbed the stairs to their 'own rooms' up above. Each bedroom having it's own bathroom is a major plus! (Families with teens will know exactly what I mean!)

That upper deck is awesome on a calm evening! Worth the climb even for the 75 year old grandma!

Kitchen the best equipped of any place I've rented on the North Carolina Coast. Want to cook something special at home? Need a certain appliance or utensil? Keep checking through those cupboards - I bet you'll find it.

Linens and bath towels aplenty are provided. As are beach chairs, bikes, shovels and pails. My grandkids loved exploring the community on bikes - a variety of sizes available.

Owners are quick to respond to any questions or concerns.

Definitely recommend.

My stay

  • 5 of 5

My family of 8 had a great time the week that we stayed. The house was spacious and clean. The walk to the beach was literally just across the street. It was easy communicating with Sandy, her response time was almost immediately. In my daughter's words "It was the best vacation we've had in a long time"

This house has everything! Family friendly!

  • 5 of 5

The owners were very accommodating and friendly. The house was clean, well decorated and well equipped. We arrived to a fully stocked fire pit and the kids enjoyed making s'mores. Short walk to the beach. The bikes were wonderful. The neighborhood and neighbors were charming. We will definitely come back!!

This property was perfect for a family stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Kure Beach. My daughters and their families met us in North Carolina with their children. Our 4 grandchildren range in age from 6 to 10, and all shared the one bedroom. Some of the best things about the rental were the attached bathrooms to each bedroom, a well stocked kitchen, location so close to the beach access, and the numerous beach and game equipment stored there. We left our sunbrella to add to the collection.We took advantage of the nearby North Carolina aquarium, and the Carolina Beach Thursday night fireworks and carnival rides. I particularly like this particular beach for a family stay.

Great Getaway, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Everything was exactly as presented...description, photos, etc. Very close walk to the beach, awesome house with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms and a well-stocked kitchen. We spent a very relaxing week close to everything we wanted to be near. Loved being so near to the ferry to Southport. We would definitely stay here again when we travel to this area.

Car: recommended

Conveniently located not only to the beach but to the NC Aquarium, Ft. Fisher, and Southport via the ferry. The street has little car traffic and plenty of parking and room for kids to play. Pier is just down the street and plenty of activities for adults and kids from fishing, surfing, GEO cashing, paddle boarding, etc. Fire pit, grill, cooler, beach cart, beach chairs, tent and toys on site for your use. Historic downtown Wilmington is a short drive with great food and shops. Movie night at the lake is a must with kids and the Carnival and Board walk at Carolina beach is a joy for all. Outdoor shower on site. Grocery store and fresh seafood market close by.
