If you like beaches the way they are meant to be; quiet, serene and beautiful, come to Kure Beach!!! If you want a place to stay that is comfortable as well as convenient... THIS is the place for you!
Our three bedroom, two bath townhouse is a two-story unit overlooking the Atlantic oceanfront. This is not a high rise, just three steps in the back door and three steps out the front door..... the view is breath taking. From the master bedroom you can wake up with the sunrise and gaze out through french doors at the sand and waves crashing in on the shore (right from your bed). There is an additional upstairs bedroom that has a double bed and two twins (the kids will love this themed room)and finally there is a third bedroom and second bath downstairs (great for elderly guests). You can enjoy ocean front views from the porch swing and rockers on the upstairs deck or from the first floor covered porch - either place the ocean breeze makes the climate just perfect.
You may be on vacation, but you'll feel like you're at home. We offer a fully-equipped kitchen with all the major/minor appliances (ie. cable TV, VCR, microwave, coffee pot, toaster, and blender). You'll be able to relax or entertain, whatever you like!
When you come inside from the beach feel like you never left. A classic nautical theme can be found throughout the house. From the murals on the walls, to the waves, fish, and shells, you'll find the decor is nothing less than soothing and inviting.
As for local activities, you can find much to do. You can choose from the newly expanded and renovated Aquarium at Historic Fort Fisher to the Cape Fear Museum in downtown Wilmington or something as simple as taking a short 4 block stroll to see what they're catching on the Kure Beach pier.
If you tire of fishing or swimming, you are conveniently located right between the two Historic towns of Wilmington and Southport. Wilmington is just 16 miles north. There you can visit the U.S.S. North Carolina Battleship (maybe even catch an old flick on the deck one evening) or take a stroll down the beautiful waterfront streets for an endless choice of shopping and dining. Just six miles south you can hop on a short ferry ride to the quaint town of Southport. You will probably recognize this town from such films as 'I Know What You Did Last Summer,' 'Matlock', 'Domestic Disturbance' or the more recent 'Safe Haven'. If you're a movie buff take a tour of the local Screen Gem Studios and see where many movies have been made as well as where 'Dawson's Creek' was taped or more recently 'Iron Man III'.
Worried about what to do with the kids? Take them to Jungle Rapids to enjoy the water park, go-carts, and miniature golf. You will not want to miss the zoo either. A zoo at the beach you ask? You've got it... or actually we do! Tregembo's Animal Park (previously known as'Tote-em-in Zoo') has many animals ranging from the ones you'd like to pet to the ones that you know to stay away from. Lions and Tigers and Bears, oh my!
If you really like amusement parks; take a day trip to busy Myrtle Beach and go to the Pavilion (about an hour and a half away). While you're there check out 'The Dixie Stampede,' 'Ripley's Believe It or Not,' and Broadway at the Beach, or just stroll the boardwalk... then come home to your quiet beachfront town.
For those golfers in your group; you will find several local courses (some even championship) to challenge your golfing skills. Don't forget all the shopping, dining, and sightseeing!
With the warmer temperatures in prime season complemented by the mild temperatures in the off season; as well as the area attractions and friendly local residents... you'll find our townhouse a great vacation spot year round!
Come and stay with us at our Seaside Escape!

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 enjoy driving out to the north end of Carolina Beach (Freeman Park) and camping out on the beach. 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, amuzment park (summer only), surf lessons, beach bingo, fireworks and world famous doughnuts. We enjoy visiting the aquarium and Historic Fort Fisher, and 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 with a phone call.
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 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).
There is always some kind of small town festival, farmers market, concert, fishing tournament or local race happening on this island - but it is never 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.

They don't call it 'Pleasure Island' for nothing!
