We had a great week at this house. The house was relatively new construction as of 2013 and even smelled like new construction! It was very clean and in a very quiet neighborhood. We had no issues with noise or other renters. Neighborhood streets are great for bike rides with small children as traffic on the main road is a little risky if you have young bikers.
Location was great - beachfront wasn't an option for us because of cost, so this was perfect. Just a few hundred yards to the beach but still close enough to be very manageable with kids & gear.
Kitchen was very updated. Everything in the house was new & functional (A/C was great). The owner communicated extremely well and got back to us whenever we had questions. They even let us do a partial week in the summer which is pretty rare!
Location: Views are mostly of other homes but this wasn't a big deal to us. 3 minute walk to beach, 10-12 minute walk to the Kure Beach pier and new public park with kids play area. 5-7 minute drive to Carolina Beach & grocery stores. 5 minute drive to Fort Fisher, the Aquarium, and ferry. Great, great location.
