Thank you!

We had a great stay - What a neat place and location!

We found that the 2nd floor bathtub drain is not working properly to open/close, but other than that everything was perfect!

Thanks again - Nicole

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a home that was just as described in the ad blurb. Clean as a whistle and everything there drop our luggage and go right to the beach! there are 3 floors with views from every floor. 2 stackable washer and dryers! and full kitchen equipped with everything, pots, pans dishwashing detergent etc. We traveled with our 3 teenage sons and my brother and there was plenty of room to spread out and have our own spaces if we wanted. Carolina Beach is just down the road and we went out a few evenings there and even chartered a boat for fishing. Ft. Fischer is also a great place to see and I recommend it, the beaches there are uncrowded and a great place to try your luck in finding shark teeth and lots of shells. Even though there were MULTIPLE shark sightings at Kure Beach we felt very safe with the life guards watching over everyone on the fairly uncrowded beaches. Donald and Audrey Lindsay were so nice and accommodating our early arrival allowing us to still park our cars there and explore the area. I am looking forward to our next trip to the beach!

Great House!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was impeccably clean and every detail was thought of. There were paper towels in the kitchen and kitchenette, multiple rolls of toilet tissue in each bath, the beds were made up with clean linens, plenty of clean, fresh-smelling towels. The beds were super comfortable, nicely decorated. Easy access to the beach. My husband and and our two twenty-something daughters stayed there. It was great having a master bedroom on the ground floor with a full bath, kitchenette with apartment-sized fridge, microwave, kitchen sink, and stacked washer/dryer. Another stacked washer/dryer was on second floor with the two other bedrooms. Easy walk on Boardwalk to pier and restaurants. Loved meeting the owners--Don and Audrey Lindsay when we arrived--very courteous and easy to communicate with during the entire transaction. They had the house opened up and waited there while we looked the house over to make sure we had no questions or other needs. Very good experience. Will visit again. Love Kure Beach!

Great rental!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house over Labor Day Weekend September 2014. The pictures do not do it justice. The home was very clean and beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed watching the sun come up over the ocean and drinking our coffee. The owners were great to work with. I even enjoyed reading a book by the window and still watching my daughter and her husband on the beach. (I recently had shoulder surgery and couldn't enjoy the beach like I wanted.) Just wanted to say thanks to the owners. We have been coming to Kure for over 20 years and this is by far the best rental we have ever had.

Lil Piece of Heaven at Kure Beach

  • 5 of 5

Our time at this well appointed, clean and comfortable home was wonderful. The information and pictures were 'spot on' and didn't disappoint. We are a cooking family and enjoyed having the kitchen tools available and the large family style table for meals. The Tuesday open air market allowed us to buy fresh fruit and vegetables and the local stores were stocked with a nice variety of items. Three floors allowed each family member privacy as well. The owners were kind and courteous and our communication with them was professional, clear and friendly. We would definitely revisit.

Owner's Response: As stated on our VRBO ad, our primary focus is to provide a family friendly atmosphere for our guests. The cottage furnishings and floor plan including the comfort of the master bedroom suite on the 1st floor was an asset for their family vacation.

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first rental at Kure Beach and it was by FAR the best we've ever experienced. The house was immaculate and the layout was great since we had our 3 children plus 2 more (ages 17-24). It was nice to be able to escape into the downstairs suite. The owners were incredibly kind and we will DEFINITELY be back next year! Thanks for a wonderful vacation!
