The Beach Lady is a 3000 square foot oceanfront home that was designed and built in 2003. The main floor has picture windows facing the ocean that run the entire width of the house, which provide breathtaking views of the Atlantic. Outside the main floor is a 700 square foot deck that also runs the entire width of the house, providing rocking chairs, Adirondack chairs, lounge chairs, and picnic tables for enjoying the sun and ocean views. The main floor also has a fully equipped kitchen with two full-size refrigerators, a dining table that seats 12, an adjacent table that seats 4, and a counter that seats 3. The dining area opens onto a living space with three sofas and a 50-inch high-definition TV, complete with a surround sound system, a Blu-Ray/DVD player, and a cable for connecting your iPod or MP3 player. The Beach Lady also has wireless internet service that broadcasts from the main floor.
The Beach Lady has six bedrooms and five full bathrooms. The first floor has a bedroom with two twin beds, a private bathroom, and a TV. The second floor, which is also the main floor, has a bedroom with a queen bed and bathroom that also connects to the main living area. The third floor has four bedrooms, two with king beds, TVs, and private bathrooms, one bedroom with two twin beds, and another bedroom with a TV and two bunk beds that sleep four. The bedrooms with the twin beds and bunk beds share a bathroom just off the adjacent hallway. The third floor also has a den with a sleeper sofa, two director’s chairs, and a large TV with DVD and VHS players, a Sony Playstation 2, and a LifeFitness Lifecycle you can use to exercise while enjoying the ocean view. Also on the third floor is a separate laundry room, which has a full size washer and dryer.
Our guests consistently talk about how the Beach Lady feels comfortable and homey. She is decorated throughout with pictures and knick-knacks that create the flavor of living at the beach. We also provide books that include fiction and non-fiction, with several titles selected to help you discover the cultural and natural history of Kure Beach and the North Carolina coast.
The area surrounding the Beach Lady is a truly wonderful oceanfront community. Kure Beach is a former fishing village that lies between the Cape Fear River and the Atlantic Ocean. Just to the south of Kure Beach are historic Fort Fisher, the NC Aquarium, and a ferry that connects you to Southport, a quaint village with antique shops and nice restaurants. Just past the ferry station is the mouth of the Cape Fear river, where you can view Bald Head Island and gorgeous sunsets. To the north of Kure Beach is Carolina Beach, with lots of shopping, restaurants, and a small amusement park. Further north is Wilmington, which has first-class shopping, museums, art galleries, restaurants, water parks, golf courses, and the USS North Carolina Battleship.

My wife and I bought the Beach Lady in 2009. We have three daughters in high school and college, and the Beach Lady has become a home away from home for our family and an attraction for our extended family visiting from other parts of the country.
The Owner purchased this house in 2009
Our family has been vacationing at the North Carolina beaches for many years. We have spent time up and down the coast, visiting Kure Beach as well as places such as Corolla, Duck, Kitty Hawk, Nag's Head, Surf City, Topsail Beach, Emerald Isle, Wrightsville Beach, Oak Island, and Holden Beach. Once we discovered Kure Beach, we knew we had found something very special. Kure Beach is very relaxed and friendly, and it has a real home town feel. The Kure Beach Pier is the oldest fishing pier on the Atlantic coast, and walking down the pier is a nostalgic experience that sometimes includes the excitement of watching an angler land a King Mackerel. The restaurants offer good food served by friendly people who take the time to get to know you. Just south of Kure Beach is the Fort Fisher State Recreational Area, a large natural area with gorgeous windswept cypress trees, walkways near crashing waves along the shoreline, the NC Aquarium, and the Fort Fisher historic site. Just past these attractions is the ferry to Southport, a quaint town with Victorian houses and quaint boutiques and restaurants. To the north is Carolina Beach, which is more bustling than Kure Beach but worth the short drive for additional shopping and dining. We truly love Kure Beach and all it has to offer, and we look forward to using the Beach Lady as a gathering place for our family. We hope you enjoy the area as much as we do and that the Beach Lady will be the anchor for many positive experiences and memories for your family.
We just had a perfect vacation with 3 other families and every one was very happy. Layout of the house is very accommodating for multi-party groups with plenty of bathrooms. The house is in great shape and well-maintained. Windows line more than one wall of the living area. Large kitchen (cooking is all that more enjoyable when you have a good view of the ocean from kitchen!), 2 refrigerators, and plenty dining spaces.
Dolphins visited us for 2 mornings in a roll. Plenty baby crabs on beach at night (bring flashlights!). Kids were thrilled.
Oh, and the good size video and book libraries are perfect for some lazy night or beach time.
I stayed at the Beach Lady in June with my wife, three sons, two daughters-in-law, and four grandchildren. A great time was had by all at this beautifully laid out home. The arrangement of the bedrooms is perfect for extended families with children. The kitchen is very well equipped and the beach access and environs made for a perfect stay.
3 generations of our family spent the last week here. Everyone from the 2-year-old to the 64-year-old had a wonderful time. The house and its location are perfect - close enough to shops and restaurants but far enough away to give a feeling of seclusion.
We had the perfect stay at the Beach Lady. The owners were so accommodating when I needed a last minute reservation due to another management company's mistake. The house had everything we needed and more. I would recommend this house to anyone.
We traveled to Kure Beach this year for the first time. Beach Lady was so wonderful! It's hard to find a house that will accommodate 18 people comfortably and Beach Lady did just that. The decor was homey, the beds comfortable, the kitchen fully stocked and the porches offered great views of the beach or just a place to relax. It was sad to leave!!!!
We stay at Beach Lady every summer. It is like a second home to us- very comfortable with everything we need. SUPER location, clean and well maintained, decorated nicely. Excellent value compared to other rentals in the area. I would buy it if I could!
NC Aquarium and historic Fort Fisher are just over a mile to the south. Kure Beach Pier is a half mile to the north and provides fishing and excellent views up and down the coast. The town of Kure Beach has several restaurants, and many more restaurants and shops are to the north toward Carolina Beach. Southport is easily accessible by ferry, and Wilmington is about 15 miles away. State parks on the island offer trails for hiking and biking, and there are several golf courses nearby.
