The covered front porch has a hammock for afternoon naps next to palm trees and additional seating among seasonal tropical flowering plants. A cool breeze seems to always be blowing from the the Cape Fear River to the nearby ocean. The house has parking for 4 cars on two separate driveways. The community pool is just 100 feet from back porch but yet trees provide privacy. We also provide a beach wagon, ocean kayak, several beach chairs and beach umbrella.

Seawatch is a private community that is mainly of second homeowners down for the summer or permenant residents. The neighborhood consists of families and is very child friendly. The rental provides complimentary access to the private Seawatch community pool, bathrooms, tennis, playground with playhouse, and common areas. Seawatch has a private gated community beach access with oceanfront cabana complete with seating area, bathroom and outdoor shower area.It is just 200 yards from house to beach . We often have a glass of wine at the cabana then a evening walk through Seawatch to see the deer with their newborns. It is short 10 minute walk down beach to Kure Beach Pier for fishing, dining, arcade, ice cream or a cold beverage.

Seawatch is just two miles from downtown Carolina Beach which has many restaurants and night time entertainment. The carnival rides are the center of downtown at the boardwalk all summer long. Enjoy the weekly boardwalk fireworks and outdoor family movies at the lake so please check the schedules. Private fishing charters, boat rentals, cocktail and dinner cruises are all available at the marina. Mini golf and arcades are all close by in Carolina Beach. Freeman Park is a city beach just three miles from Seawatch and allows 4x4 vehicles to drive on, build camp fires and let dogs play.You can also rent jeeps in town to get out on the 4x4 beaches.

Fort Fisher State Park is just a 5 minute drive south to the end of the island. It has a 4x4 vehicle beach that is totally isolated and aprox. 3 miles long. Ocean on one side and marshes with creeks for kayaking/ flounder fishing just 100 yards away. It is why they call this' Paradise Island'. The North Carolina Aquarium is at Fort Fisher and is one of the states most popular attractions. They also offer summer camps for kids from 9am to 1 pm. The kids love the camps at the aquarium with indoor and outdoor education (shelling, shrimping and beaching). There also is a civil war museum with live reenactments. It is nice to take the car on the ferry from Fort Fisher across the Cape Fear River and feed the seagulls. It will dock at Southport which is small historic town or board another ferry to Bald Head Island for lunch at the 'Mojito's'. It is small island with no cars just golf carts. Climb 'OLD BALDY' lighthouse for panoramic views. The sunsets across the Cape Fear River from the Fort Fisher State Park are amazing on clear days.

Seawatch is just 20 minutes south of historic Wilmington with it's Riverwalk. The Riverwalk on the Cape Fear River has many restaurants and shops. A trolly ride, ghost walk, dinner cruises, reptile museum and live theatre. Across the river you can tour the USS North Carolina Battleship.

About Scott

We are a family of four from Charlotte ,NC. We have two daughters who enjoy the outdoors.

Scott purchased this house in 2008

Why Scott chose Kure Beach

We purchased in Seawatch because it is best FAMILY community on the island. Many island homes are not in a community. We love the easy beach access, community pool and wildlife. The island has so many activities. In just a few years we have so many memories.

What makes this house unique

Upscale private community that does not have much traffic at all. Private gated beach access with cabana and bathroom for quests and owners only. Community pool ,tennis and playground.

Best rental experience we've had

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great vacation in this lovely home. It was the cleanest vacation rental we've ever stayed in, and that means a lot coming from a "germaphobe." Very kid friendly - our 4-year-old was sound asleep when we arrived at midnight, but she lit up the moment she got inside and ran from room to room exclaiming she wanted to live there. We loved the pool and how close it was to the house. The private outdoor shower for bathing/cleaning the kids before heading inside after a beach day was a great feature. We just kept soap right there, and they were cleaned and ready to go in and nap. The rooms are bright and airy, yet closing the curtains kept it dark enough for naps. Lots of places in Kure Beach to go for a nice long run. Kitchen was well stocked, and the wagon for carrying beach chairs and umbrella (which the house also had) was great. The walk to the beach was very short. The only negative was that my inlaws didn't care for the stairs due to my mother-in-law's injured ankle, but she managed and overall had a nice stay. We would recommend this vacation rental to anyone.

If you are looking for a “typical” vacation rental home, then this home isn’t for you. If you are looking for a vacation stay in someone’s forever home, then this IS the home (not house) for you. This was by far the best vacation rental we have ever had. The home is very well built, super, super clean and beautifully furnished with comfortable furniture and plush bedding. The kitchen has everything you could wish for. I was so disappointed that my husband forgot to grab our electric griddle so we could make pancakes for the grand kids. No worries. There was one in the cabinet? I was flabbergasted! The kitchen came with both a standard electric coffee pot and a Keurig. Seriously, no small detail was overlooked in stocking this kitchen, from lighters for the GIANT gas grill on the deck to, cheese ball knives, cork screws and wine bottle stoppers, to the second fridge (in the kitchen) for drinks and such. They even supplied, dish washing liquid, dish washer soap, hand soap, paper towels, coffee filters. They have left nothing to chance. When they say you only need yourselves, your food and your linens; they mean it. They even had the bathrooms stocked with bathroom tissue, even though we brought our own.

Most times, checking into a vacation rental is a royal pain. Not at here. A week before we were to leave, the owner sent detailed instructions on how to check in. They supply you with a check in code that operates a lock box on the bottom level right beside the door. You key in the code and the box opens and there are your (2) keys. After we got the door opened, we never bothered with the keys again, except to lock up the house when leaving. We just kept them in the lock box until we needed to get in. That was such a relief with 4 small children and 6 adults to not have to worry about “who has the key”!

The house comes with: free wireless, covered parking, two hoses to rinse off toys, a HOT outdoor shower, beach chairs & toys, swim noodles, fishing poles and boogie boards & a sturdy beach cart to haul it all on. Tastefully landscaped and maintained grounds that offers you privacy without diminishing the view.

There is no doubt that this home was furnished and is maintained by caring and generous people. I would recommend this home to anyone.

I could go on and on so I will just say "rent this house, you won't be disappointed". Thank you Scott and Renee for a wonderful home to spend our vacation in. We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

Scott, thanks for a great vacation! My family and I were impressed with the size and cleanliness of not only the house, but the surrounding facilities (houses and yards very well kept and the pool house and tennis courts were nice, too). Having three and a half baths and outside shower was a blessing. Kids loved the outside shower, especially after the beach. Kure Beach could not have been nicer either. The private access made sun bathing and ocean playing feel as though we were miles from a town. We took a drive up to the boardwalk on Carolina beach but found it to be too crowded. Kure Beach is just a quick walk from the home. We rented two jet skis from North End Rental and would recommend them for an hour of fun. Our three teenage children had a great time at the beach and when using the pool. Our family spotted several ball fields only a few miles from the home. There are lots of activities for all ages nearby. Walking in the surrounding neighborhoods was a morning and evening ritual for us and we saw several deer during the walks. The traffic was minimal and it was nice to walk around without a lot of road noise or heavy traffic. We also loved the nearby drive-on beaches and went several times with our Yukon. This house is truly an ideal place for a family vacation!

278 Seawatch Way -- Equipped for Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I grew up vacationing at Wrightsville Beach and our parents lived in Wilmington during retirement. When we continued the tradition of vacationing together with with our families in the Wilmington-area we discovered Seawatch in Kure Beach. We have loved our visits to the Skittles houses in quiet, tree-lined Seawatch and all nine of us have voted 278 our favorite!

The home is well equipped for family enjoyment. The decks are spacious and flower-adorned for morning coffee or evening cocktails. The grill was a terrific convenience. And a second fridge--and wine fridge in the kitchen? Brilliant.

The home was spotlessly clean upon check-in. The bedrooms were decorated in sun-kissed colors and the beds were comfortable. When we arrived, a nice array of spices, coffee filters and foil, saran-wrap, etc. awaited us. Such a great help. We added to the house's eco-system by replenishing and adding to those items for the next guests.

Scott has provided chairs, umbrella and wagon and plenty of friendly tips for enjoying the area. Check out his ingenious watering system for the flower pots and hanging baskets.

We are ready to book for next summer. We felt more like a guest in a friend's home than renters of a vacation property. Scott and family have made their home a welcoming place for a memorable family vacation.

The listing is exactly what we were looking for, the opportunity to enjoy the ocean and also have use of the community pool. The residence was appropriately equipped, maintained and clean. We would recommend this rental to friends and are considering returning next year. We went to the aquarium, skydived and took an air tour of the island.

We enjoyed pizza from the local restaurant and the kids had Chinese food while the adults were dining at Michaels. Over all we had an enjoyable experience.

Everything we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived at the house, it was obvious this was going to be one of the best vacations we have had.

The house was perfect for the number of people staying (3 couples a single and 2 kids). The patios were relaxing and had great spaces to sit and relax. The beach was only a few minutes walk and chairs, umbrella and sand toys were already on site. There was even a heavy duty wagon to pull it all.

It was nice to have the private beach entrance with showers to wash the sand off before walking home, but there was also an outdoor shower at the house that we used as well.

As for the community, it was nice a quite. The pool was well kept and the playground was just the right size for our kids. We would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking to have a great beach vacation.
