Thank you!

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

Wonderful Spring Break!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Donald and Audrey's rental! They were there to meet us at check in, and were helpful with restaurant suggestions and so friendly. The house is very very clean - I am very picky. Well stocked with anything you could need, and linens provided. The location is great! So close to the beach and the Kure beach pier so we were able to walk most places we wanted to go. The yard is huge and right on the water, so the view is wonderful. We took our corn hole boards and were able to play and cookout and enjoy the sound of the ocean and the view. We will definitely rent again!

Owner's Response: We try to personally greet our renter guests at check-in. We are available to show our vacation home's amenities and answer questions. This family took advantage of our large oceanfront yard for family fun games, enjoyed the ground level deck, the BBQ grill and picnic table for serving great meals, all within view and the sounds of the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. We thank this family for their visit and invite them to return again.

Fabulous Stay

  • 5 of 5

Visited week before Labor Day 2017. Weather wasn't predicted to be very good due to pending storms in Atlantic. But as anyone knows beaches have their own plans and it was great all week long. Our stay was enhanced by Donald and Audrey who graciously met us at the house. This is one house you have to see to believe how great it is. Words and pictures don't do it justice. This was our 4th time renting this house and the owners have been a pleasure to work with. Beautiful house and beautiful surrounding yard. This is truly a hidden jewel in Kure Beach!

Exceptionally Clean & Well Kept

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at properties up and down the Carolina coastlines for over a dozen years now. I would have to say this is the cleanest, well kept property that we have stayed at.

Having rented properties previously we are familiar with what we should expect to have to bring and what we likely will find already there. From a well furnished kitchen to the simple daily necessities (paper products, soap, etc) the property was very well supplied.

Likewise very clean and tidy. We always expect and generally find something that's not working properly in places we've rented in the past. Not so here. Well maintained, furnished, clean and overall great location. Very nice!!

Perfect Family Get-A-Way

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for an extraordinarily clean, fully accommodating, home away from home, this beach rental is perfect. Our family has vacationed at Kure for the past six years and this home met our needs in every way. A comfortable, ocean view cottage that I would recommend to anyone.
