Kure Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

The home is located in Kure Beach although the mailing and GPS address are Carolina Beach.

Simple Pleasures was named after the remodel was complete. It's one of a few original beach cottages updated to ''you thought of everything' status.

*Two public beach accesses are across the street

*An enclosed private outside shower

*Backyard is all deck with room to play and dine. The grill is charcoal and lights with propane - the best of both worlds.

*Wash off the sand with the separate foot shower hang your beach towels on the outside drying rack

*There are bikes to ride and a bike lane to ride in

*4 Tommy Bahama Backpack Cooler Chairs with Storage Pouch and Towel Bar

*The front is a large parking area

*The covered front veranda is perfect for rocking and relaxing with a late afternoon beverage

*Low voltage lighting enhances the rear deck and the landscaping.

*Ceramic tile floor minimizes cleaning issues and wooden blinds allow personal sunshine and privacy control.

*The two bedrooms are separated by the new bathroom with a glass enclosed shower. The rear bedroom has a double bed, a closet, and wall storage. The front bedroom has two twin beds, a closet, and wall storage. Bed linens, towels, beach towels enough for six.

*A glass topped dining table with six comfortable chairs, two love seat convertible sofas that have been enhanced with memory foam for a more comfortable sleeping experience, an entire wall of storage, a flat screen television on a reticulating arm with a sound system and blu ray DVD, a stacked front loading washer and dryer, and a desk for your computer with the included WIFI broadband internet cable access are all open plan with......

*The new kitchen: granite countertops, a great deep sink, a new dishwasher, pull out trash and recycle bins, ample cupboard space, a new stove, a new microwave, toaster, coffeemaker, blender, dishes, pots and pans, glasses, utensils, linens.

*Short distance from the cottage is the Kure Beach Fishing Pier, restaurants, the North Carolina Aquarium, Fort Fisher, the ferry to Southport, and Carolina Beach

* Wilmington is approximately a half hour drive. Busy nightlife, antique stores, the Battleship North Carolina, a pretty historic district.

*We prefer no pets but exceptions are made case-by-case

*Definitely non-smoking, ashtrays are provided for use on the deck and the veranda.

Guestbook comments from the owner
I just wanted to say thanks again. We've been bragging to everyone how

great Simple Pleasures was. I've never stayed anywhere that was so

well stocked with dishes, utensils and supplies. The house was

remodeled / updated beautifully and was very clean, but all of the

extras is what made it such a great place. The outdoor shower and

grill were my two favorite additions. I never took a shower inside,

the outside one was much more convenient. We didn't go to a restaurant

during the entire stay. We grilled, ate on the back deck, then would

go to the rocking chairs to watch the traffic jams. ...



We are already talking about two different trips later this year and

we hope to work Simple Pleasures into the budget for both.

Wife is Accountant; Husband is Electrical Contractor. We also buy old houses and remodel them; it's creative design for the Accountant and construction management for the Electrician. We love to travel and we love living at the beach

Karlene and Steve purchased this cottage in 2009

The Town of Kure Beach is unique: no high rises, no dense commercial district, good food in a few favorite places.

The ocean is just across the street, its a single family house, the beach is not crowded, a true sense of cherishing life's simple pleasures in an otherwise frenetic world.

GREAT PLACE AT THE BEACH!!!

  • 5 of 5
Great place to stay at the beach! Very close to the beach and the house equipped well with everything you need. I would give 3 stars for the beds not very comfortable but for few nights that we stayed was ok not a deal breaker for sure. Will definitely come back!

BEACH FUN

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here early in June with our young girls. It was our first time renting property and it was a nice change verses a hotel. Everything was clean and ready upon our arrival. The only negative for us was the traffic on the highway. It was pretty busy day/night and it made me nervous to cross with our daughters to get to the beach. Overall, it was a great time.

PERFECT FOR US!

  • 5 of 5
Needed a nice clean well equipped one level beach house to keep our 3 and 7 year old grandchildren (and their family dog) occupied for a week. Simple Pleasures provided just that. Loved the fact there were not any steps to enter (my husband doesn't handle them well) and the entire yard is sand free! The kids enjoyed playing in the back yard but they loved all the toys provided inside! I cooked most of our meals and loved the little spice jars and having all the paper products provided was a plus. I cannot say enough good things about this home. In the past 7 years we have stayed in more than 20 vrbo homes and this one was stocked the best! Owner was so easy to work with.

OFF SEASON EXTENDED RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
We were in search of a long term rental for the winter. We had new house in brunswick forest that was not going to be available until April. With that in mind, we started searching for a rental that we could just move into and have the comforts of home. Simple Pleasures exceeded what we were looking for. From the appliances, to cookware and entertainment system, all the necessities are provided. The cottage not only meets the needs of summer vacationers, but those looking for an extended stay as well.

The only challenge we encountered, we packed all that bulky winter clothing (not just the t-shirts and shorts). A quick trip to a department store for a hanging rack and we were good to go. The pictures capture the cottage accurately. The outdoor deck and porch are spacious and provided a nice place to relax on days the weather cooperated.

Steve and Karlene were great folks to deal with. If anyone is in need of an off season long term rental, I recommend considering Simple Pleasures.

LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a good time from the moment we walked in! Perfect time of year it was as if we were the only ones in town. Such a great beach house from the bikes to the home made soaps! I have to say my favorite was the back deck. Me and my husband spent many nights back there after the kids were in bed with fabulous beer and wines from the veggie wagon which is a place you must check out. It's even Better that its close enough to ride to on the bikes. The outdoor shower just topped things off! I don't think I can put into words how perfect this place was. Also a must to try is the shuckin shack! Thanks!
