Oceanfront, ground level, 2 story town home, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 1-8)
We are local owners! We bought this property in 2001 while we were looking for a place to vacation for ourselves. We fell in love with the location and the appeal of owning a home on the beach. Since then we have also moved to Kure Beach and are raising our children here (2 girls and a boy). We love Pleasure Island and the small town community feeling it offers. We are also Mortgage Brokers and can help you fulfill your dream of owning your own Seaside Escape! Here on the island we love all the activities offered at the Carolina Beach Boardwalk in the summer: charter fishing tours, party boat tours, family movies by the lake, paddle boating, the amusement park (summer only), surf lessons, beach bingo, fireworks and world famous doughnuts. We enjoy visiting the NC Aquarium along with Historic Fort Fisher, driving out to the north end of Carolina Beach (Freeman Park) to camp for the day on the beach. We like riding our bikes onto the ferry and over to the little town of Southport. We can't believe we actually live here and get to enjoy this all year! We are thrilled to be able to share our 2nd home on the beach with you and hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do! Best of all, if you need anything we are minutes away.
Robyn purchased this Townhome in 2001
Why Robyn chose Kure Beach
I grew up vacationing in Myrtle Beach, SC and my husband at Nags Head, NC. We found Kure Beach to be a wonderful alternative! It is located on an island about 11 miles long and consists of three small towns Carolina Beach, Kure Beach and Historic Fort Fisher. It is not the commercialized or tourist attracting town of Myrtle Beach. (We love to visit there but usually make it a day trip) Kure Beach consists mostly of cottages which are 2nd homes or primary residences. There are lots of wonderful restaurants, shopping and local activities offered year round. This property has private parking, spectacular views, and nice size rooms. One of it's best features is that it's ground level (4 steps up and you're in the door).
What makes this Townhome unique
There is always some kind of small town festival, farmers market, concert, fishing tournament or local race happening on the island - but it is never too crowded. One of the secret advantages of this island is a back road (Dow Rd) which runs along the government owned property lines that allows you to drive from practically one end of the island to the other at 55mph. If you know about this little local secret, traffic is never a problem. Check out the Pleasure Island Chamber of Commerce's website for local events and happenings. They don't call it 'Pleasure Island' for nothing!

Location, location, location!
Great spot right on the water with gorgeous views and private beach access. The home was very clean and comfortable and the kitchen was stocked with pots, plates, and silverware to prepare our meals. A few minor items were in need of repair but nothing that impacted our enjoyment. Although the other units in the building were occupied it was quiet and we were not disturbed by our neighbors. The trash situation was confusing as the bins for the various units are not clearly marked and we couldn't find the bin for ours. We had just one vehicle so parking was fine but would be tight if you had more. There are only three steps up to the entrance but no hand rail. This made it somewhat difficult for my father-in-law who has limited mobility. But overall the sight and sound of the waves and the direct proximity to the beach made it an enjoyable stay.
If your looking for nice beach front access look no further. Having a bedroom downstairs was very nice for my elderly mother. Very nice unit with amazing ocean views from the balcony and porch. Quick access to the beach and nearby restaurants. Withing walking distance of the pier.
After hurricane stay
We had a great week! The property is just as pictured. We loved the fact that the beach was only a few steps away. The owner was more than helpful considering a hurricane went through just a few days bwfore we got there. We delayed our coming a day but it wasn't on her part. Hoping to stay again next year!
Great value beach front
enjoyed the short walk to the beach and ocean views from the porch.
The beach was quiet and beautiful. The kids room was PERFECT for my three girls! We had a relaxing vacation, which is rare with three preschoolers.
