Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 6 Sleeeps

This unique 1-bedroom condo features an open loft on 2nd floor with extra bedding and an additional bathroom. With accommodations for 4 guests, this unit offers exceptional value for the price of a 1-bedroom. Convenient to the Ocean Dunes Recreation Center, which includes lighted tennis courts, basketball court, indoor pool, exercise room and whirlpool/sauna.

Parking for two vehicles is provided, along with access to Ocean Dunes’ array of amenities – three outdoor pools, an indoor pool with hot tub, recreation center, fitness center, basketball, tennis courts, sauna, shuffleboard, and playground. Beach access is also nearby, just to the left of the building. Charcoal grills and outdoor showers also located onsite.

You’ll likely have an opportunity to witness the interesting aquatic phenomena of coquina rocks on the shoreline, especially evident at low tide in this area. These mounds of seashell and limestone form tiny pools and puddles of water, great for wading or lounging in your beach chair. Approach green coquina rocks with caution, those beauties are slippery business! This is a rare sight, specific to this area of Pleasure Island, so enjoy!

The BEST value and stay.

  • 5 of 5

This condo felt way more luxurious than what we paid for it. Amenities are above and beyond. The view is absolutely incredible. Great location for Shell scouring and so close to things yet it feels so private and secluded. The rec center pool was way larger than we expected, and very clean. The condo itself was spotless and the kitchen had more space and supplies that we have found anywhere else. The loft can definitely be used as a second bedroom however, open concept provides limited privacy for a second adult couple and the spiral staircase, while aesthetically pleasing, would have made me very nervous had our young daughter been staying with us.

Easy access to the beach and I LOVED having covered parking (enough for 2 vehicles) but the beach access shower was not working at the time of our stay (it was off season, that could be why).

Clothes dryer does have to be ran twice, but atleast we were just happy to have one in the unit.

Overall We did not want to leave and can not wait to return.

Beautiful finishes, updates, decor, and location!

  • 4 of 5

What a view! As soon as you open the front door, you are captivated by the ocean view out the back! As you let your eyes wander, you are further impressed by the fireplace, tall ceilings, beautiful kitchen, and on-trend decor! The bedroom and loft are beautifully done, and my daughter loved the Xbox addition in the loft! What a treat! I thought the main bathroom could use a little TLC in terms of caulk and care around the sink and tub. Also, not all vent and outlet covers were secured correctly, leaving holes in the walls. Other than that, the place was a gem and we’ll definitely be coming back!

Nicely updated beachfront escape w/ modern, clean appeal. Would definitely return!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay over President's Day Weekend. The beach was so quiet and peaceful this time of year and the views from this unit are amazing. Also loved the close proximity to Fort Fisher. The inside is updated and modern w/ pretty much any amenity you can think of. The TV/sound system were a bit confusing to operate - would recommend a cheat-sheet to help make that a bit less confusing as we never could quite figure out the sound bar. Also, took us a bit of time to figure out how to turn on the fireplace (there is a black button on top right of fireplace that blends in a bit too well - but once we found that, we could enjoy it). Overall would recommend this unit, it was beautifully decorated and feels spacious and open. Also love the catchy name - "Tropic Like It's Hot!" Can't go wrong with that!

Lovely property with amazing views!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at Kure Beach! The condo was very nice, and we only found a couple minor annoyances.

1.) there needs to be another set of curtains in the living room. We found it difficult when laying the baby down while relaxing to find an area in the main space that wasn't too bright. 2.) the dryer takes at least two rounds to dry a load completely. 3.) the floors were not clean upon arrival. We spent the beginning of our trip sweeping up sand and dust. 4.) the mattress topper on the king bed doesn't stay in place. It would shift during the night causing our base sheet to come off of the mattress. 5.) the upstairs bathroom was overtaken by some kind of beetles at night. Our daughter was terrified after she went in to use the restroom the first night since she slept in the loft area. After that, the upstairs restroom was not used again during our weeks stay.

The issues we found were not bad enough to deter us from wanting to come back! Overall we loved the condo and found it very comfortable and accommodating. It had everything we needed in the kitchen, and some things we didn't expect. It felt like just the right size for our family of four, and we loved being right on the beach. We found a whole baggie full of sharks teeth, make good use of the property's pools, spotted a shark from the balcony, relaxed on the beach, and made a few trips to nearby Carolina Beach. It was the most relaxing vacation we've ever had! We will definitely be returning in the future!

An excellent place for a quiet beach visit

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here the week of Labor Day 2016. Apart from a few small things (see notes below), we had a fantastic time and really enjoyed staying here. It really is an excellent condo and it is ON THE BEACH.

The unit itself is clean, spacious, comfortable and directly on Kure beach. It's a beautiful location, close enough to town for meals and other shopping, but far enough to have some quiet time. Parking is easy. The recreation center is right across the street with an indoor pool. The beach is clean and easy to access. If you have bikes, they have bike lanes. For food, there are grocery stores and restaurants including the Ocean Grill and Tiki Bar on the pier.

Inside the unit, you can tell the owners have been updating things.

The wifi is great with about 60 mbps down and 6 mbps up, plenty of speed for Netflix or Hulu. There are three excellent HDTVs, each with basic cable service. The main TV is attached to a Sony AV Receiver and a Blu-Ray player. There are spare HDMI ports on the receiver so you can use your laptop or a PS4 if you like. The Harmony remote makes watching TV or DVDs very easy.

Of course, the balcony will make you forget all about the electronics. It's just lovely and there is a comfy couch and chair out there so you can watch the surf. The little bar-top attached to the railing is falling apart and needs to be replaced.

The kitchen has excellent appliances including 2 coffee makers (1 Keurig and 1 drip), stove, dishwasher, microwave, and fridge. There are lots of pots, pans and utensils but most are showing their age. The knives in particular are not in good condition. If you cook a lot, you may want to bring: large cutting board, a good knife, a good frying pan. ProTip: That high-pitched beep you hear is the dishwasher when it's done.

There are 2 bedrooms: A main bedroom with a door and a loft bedroom over the living room. The loft is great if you like waking up to the sun. The beds, while older, are comfortable enough for most people. I woke up sore, but I have a bad back. The loft bedroom has it's own bath with shower. The downstairs bathroom has a full tub and shower. The bathrooms are clean but the tub and shower are in need of repair/replacing.

FYI: No drapes in the living room means no privacy at night and full sun all day. Also, the spiral staircase railing needs to be repaired/replaced. I imagine the owners know this and are planning on it.

Overall a fantastic place!
