If you want to stay in a family-friendly atmosphere -- and enjoy a breathtaking million-dollar view of the beautiful Atlantic ocean at your doorstep -- then you'll love your stay at Kure Beach at this beautiful home! This incredible oceanfront home is a wonderful getaway in the heart of Kure Beach, on Pleasure Island. It's within close walking distance of shops, restaurants, and the renowned Kure Beach fishing pier!

This home has a huge deck with a covered porch swing, a grill, a picnic table and Adirondack chairs. Perfect for your picnic or barbecue, listening to the surf and feeling the ocean breeze. Watch the waves rolling in, seagulls flying by, and dolphins frolicking in the ocean -- right in front of you! You'll have your own private walkway to the beach, and the convenience of an outside shower. There's plenty of house parking too.

This home is ideally suited for a small family (with 2 double size beds and 2 queen size beds). The master bedroom (with queen size bed and cable TV) is on the lower level and faces the ocean. There is also a full bath, a comfortable living room/den with a big picture window (also looking out to sea) and large LED flat screen smart TV, a full-size kitchen with new appliances and dining bar, and a pantry with new front-loading washer and dryer. Upstairs there are two additional bedrooms with ocean views and a shared full bath. One of the bedrooms has two double size beds (with cable TV) and the other bedroom has a queen size bed (also with cable TV).

Every room is freshly painted and beautifully decorated in a seaside theme in bright beachy colors, and there are updated furnishings as well as ceramic tile and Berber carpet throughout. It is strictly smoke-free and pet-free at all times. Amenities include WiFi internet, 4 flat-screen cable TVs, DVD, and telephone service. Also included for your convenience is a starter set of house supplies, such as paper towels, toilet paper, trash bags, soap, cleaning supplies and laundry detergent. Departure sanitation service is included too. You may bring your own linens, or they may be rented at very reasonable rates.

While vacationing in the oceanfront cottage, you'll be surrounded by plenty of attractions. Great surf fishing is available -- on the Kure fishing pier, by charter boat, or off the beach itself in front of the cottage. For sightseeing, Historic Fort Fisher, Carolina Beach State Park, and the NC Aquarium are favorite local attractions on Pleasure Island within minutes of the cottage. A short drive will take you to historic Wilmington and the Battleship North Carolina -- just 15 miles away. And you may wish to take a day trip to beautiful Southport, by the NC Ferry system at nearby Fort Fisher. There is always something to do for everyone in the family!

For those of you who have vacationed at Kure Beach before, you know what a true gem this clean, noncommercial beach is! This special home is located in an all-residential section of the island--for a family vacation or a romantic getaway. And for those who haven't yet experienced the pleasures of Kure Beach, you're in for a real treat! With moderate temperatures and so much available to see and do, it's a nice vacation destination for all ages at any time of the year.

We hope you'll plan your next vacation with us!!

We had a great time swimming in the ocean-we had the opportunity to watch sea turtles hatch, something we will treasure-North Carolina is a beautiful state!

Just what the doctor ordered...

  • 5 of 5

I had unexpected surgery shortly before our trip and this house was perfect for me to recuperate. I was able to get some much needed rest, and the house was easy for me to move around with very few steps. We would be glad to return sometime.

Relaxing week

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing stay in this wonderful home. The views were breathtaking. I enjoyed reading on the swing and my husband had fun cooking on the grill. The kids couldn't get enough of the beach and slept well every night. We took in the local carnival and saw some great fireworks. That was fun. Lots to keep everyone entertained, so

we'll be back!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this house! It was the perfect size for our small family. I cooked a lot in the kitchen, and it was wonderful with new appliances and quality cookware. The house was clean and uncluttered, and the location was ideal so we could easily walk to the pier or travel around the island. Great place to stay.

Wonderful week at Kure!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this comfortable house in a great location! The deck and swing were awesome and shady in the afternoon after a morning of sun on the beach, which was just a few steps away! Beautiful sunrises in the morning and convenient to pretty much everything in the area! We'll be back!
