If you like quiet, unspoiled beaches, and all the amenities at a great value, this is the place for you! At 1165 square feet, our two bedroom, two and one-half bath, oceanfront townhouse feels like a house at a condominium price! This two-story unit sleeps six and has private decks off of the master bedroom and living room. Watch the sunrise from bed, or sit on the porch swing and see the surf roll in...
The Ocean Dunes complex has all the amenities including indoor/outdoor pools, hot tub, sauna, fitness center, tennis courts, basketball, playground, shuffleboard, and boat and trailer parking. (And our unit is located right across the street from the recreation center.)
The townhouse itself is well-maintained with new upgrades every year. This year, all new main floor furniture including sofas, dining table, coffee tables and stools. In the last 2 years, MBR furniture with a King bed, new carpet , a 42' Flatscreen and free WIFI! We have tasteful nautical decor throughout, and everything you need to feel at home. The updated kitchen has all the appliances and utensils like I have at home. There is a washer/dryer to get those beach towels dry, and a locker in the covered carport with sand toys and beach chairs. We are also fully equipped with electronics like a TV/VCR/DVD in living room and TV/VCR in the master bedroom, CD player, radio, and XBox. We even have board games, books, and a video/DVD collection for those (rare) rainy days!
As far as activities go, there is so much to do it is hard to list it all. You are within two miles of the Fort Fisher Historic Site, the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher, the Southport-Fort Fisher Ferry and the Kure Beach fishing pier. A few minutes further away, you have golf, charter boat fishing, tons of shopping, and wonderful dining. The kids may like the Tregembo Animal Park, Jungle Rapids Water Park, or a visit to the Battleship North Carolina. Or, you can always just sit on the deck, watch the water, and order pizza. The choice is yours!
The mild temperatures in the off season, indoor pool, and wealth of area attractions make our townhouse a great vacation spot year round. Come and stay at our place!!!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS...
There are some questions that folks often have about renting directly from a homeowner, rather than a rental agency. First time renters may be a little uncomfortable and wonder how they know we are 'legitimate'. If this is the case for you, just ask, and we will gladly provide references. We have families that are on their fourth year renting with us, and will be happy to answer your questions. Also, you may wonder what happens if something breaks during your visit since we live out of town. No problem. We have a cleaning and maintenance company right there on the island that takes care of any maintenance issues. We (the owners) are your primary point of contact, but there is a 24 hour emergency number that you can use as well. Another question is around key pickup. We have a keypad lock. You are e-mailed your code for the week, and there are no keys to pick up (or to lose!). Our guests love this feature! If there are any other questions you have, just e-mail and ask!

About Janet or John
My husband and I lived in Wilmington for 11 years before career shifted us away from the beach. We have two children in school, and know what kind of things to keep on hand to entertain them on rainy days. Prior to our move, we purchased the townhouse as a getaway and an investment, and have managed the rentals ourselves from the start. We go down several times a year, and make sure that everything is in good shape. This past year, we put in new living and dining area furniture. (We did manage to sit on the beach and enjoy it too during our trip!) Having lived in the area for so long, we are knowledgeable about the area attractions. If you need suggestions on activities or restaurants, we are happy to spend the time talking to you to help you plan your trip.
Janet or John purchased this Condo in 2002
Why Janet or John chose Kure Beach
We love the beach, and we love NC. Kure Beach is such a great vacation spot. Family oriented and small town feel, but right near so many things to do that you are never bored!
What makes this Condo unique
I love my deck swing! It is my favorite place for coffee or reading. And I never tire of watching the ocean. We love hunting for fossilized Sharks Teeth at the Beach! We have found hundreds over the years, ranging from 1/4 inch to our biggest at around 2 inches... We ask guests to trace their biggest find in the guest book, and I have put some info on shark's teeth in the condo so you can tell which kind you find. Photography is also a hobby, and I have taken some wonderful photos of the beach and the area. Some of my favorites are on the walls in the condo. Aside from the beach, we enjoy excursions to Southport on the ferry. Make sure and take some bread to feed the seagulls on the ride. They will take it from your hand if you hold still long enough!

My husband and I and another couple just got back from staying in this townhome(May 2-5). We loved it. This was a lovely place very clean, and had everything you need. The location was fantastic. Great restaurants nearby. The beach had great access from the townhome. We love the quietness of this area. We have never stayed in Kure beach. We will definately be going back and hopefully be able to stay at this townhome. Thanks so much for allowing us to rent this great place Janet.
My husband and I are always glad to hear that folks like to stay at our place. We work hard to make sure that things look good and are well maintained, while keeping our rates below the "big agency" prices in the same building. Thanks for the review! Janet
Everything was clean and fresh! Only thing was in the eating area was carpet, not a problem off season but would recommend doing laminate or tile. Front door knob was wiggly but worked. Overall would highly recommend this lovely villa.
Thanks for taking the time to write! Appreciate you input on flooring, and that is our plan when we replace the carpet next year Will have maintenance check out the door knob. Hope to have you back! Janet
Family fun and a great location
Ocean dunes has so much to offer. From Carolina Beach to fort fisher we stayed moving every day. We enjoyed the aquarium on a rainy day. Hikes to zekes island and visited the hermits bunker. The kids really enjoyed the ferry ride to south port. In south port we visited the maritime museum and then went to eat on the sound waterfront dining.
We recommend Havana’s for fine dining and Kure Beach diner for breakfast. Britts doughnuts are only available Saturday and Sunday and are soooo good!
The pool and hot tub are a selling point for the kiddos. Unfortunately the restrooms were being renovated during our stay which was an adventure with the little ones.
We would go again no doubt.
Thanks for taking the time to write! Britt's donuts are elusive, and I think they taste better because of that :) Glad you enjoyed your stay, and look forward to having you back!
beautiful beach views
Beautiful NC coastal views and area...we visited good friends in a nearby city. We have been here many times and love Kure Beach and surrounding beach cities. The townhouse was a cute “beachy” get-away! The owners were very attentive and did all they could to make our visit lovely. Had a great time!
Thanks for taking the time to write! So glad you had a good stay and hope to have you back soon!
All you need!
My husband and i stayed at this condo for 3 nights during the Christmas holidays. This place is just what you would want or need. Location and beach view was great, condo very clean, very nicely furnished, king bed comfortable, kitchen stocked well with quality cookware, flatware, dishes, etc., and ice maker the best! The beach area was really nice also. We enjoyed our stay here and look forward to another visit at this condo.
Thanks for taking the time to write a review! We work hard to upgrade different things in the unit each year and I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to have you back!
Great home away from home
We just spent January and February in this great place. Our daughter lives in Carolina Beach and we wanted to stay nearby for part of the winter. I know the weather isn't always this nice in Carolina in the winter, but we got lucky and had an incredible two months with many days warm enough to sit on the beach in just shorts and a tee-shirt. The whole place is very nice - Janet was easily reachable and great to work with on the couple of minor things we needed to communicate on during our stay.
I love the whole place, but my favorite spot might be the upstairs oceanfront deck. There were many sunny mornings when the temperature was high 40s or low 50s, but the way that deck is in the sun and usually protected from the wind, we could be out in summer gear sitting or doing yoga in the sun up there, watching and listening to the ocean. We'll be back next winter for an even longer stay.
Thanks for taking the time to write and so glad you enjoyed your stay! All brand new first floor furniture will welcome you on your visit next year... Looking forward to having you back :) Janet
Not only is the beach beautiful, but there is so much to do within minutes. The NC Aquarium, the Fort Fisher Civil War Museum, and the Southport Ferry are all within 2 miles! There are tons of great restaurants in Kure and Carolina Beaches. Historic downtown Wilmington NC is only 20 minutes away with antique stores, shopping and more great restaurants. The Battleship North Carolina is docked in Wilmington also. There is world class golf, great fishing charters, a cool small Zoo, and the Jungle Rapids water park all right there. And if that isn't enough for you, take a day trip to Myrtle Beach SC and get all the touristy stuff around. Or you can hang out at the beach all day, sit on the deck at night, and order pizza. The choice is yours!
Other Activities: Find great sea shells and fossilized shark teeth on the beach!
