This house brings true luxury at an affordable price. Hear the crash of waves and appreciate gorgeous ocean views from the family room, dining room, decks and some bedrooms without paying the ocean front premium. And the beach is just steps away!
This house is not your average rental. Lots of upgrades await you and with everything you need to be truly comfortable. This is the owner's second home who love to spend time at the beach and only rented a fraction of each year so it's maintained with loving care. This house is owner managed so we can be sure it is kept in tip top shape for you and your family. This is NOT your typical everyday well-used rental property because there is low traffic through it and it's in a secluded residential area so you're not with the rest of the vacation crowd.
This house is wonderful for a family and is also perfect for two families to share with two of the bedrooms having king size beds!!! There's no argument over which couple gets the bigger bed in this house!
There were no shortcuts taken when selecting the finishes for this home. There are hardwood and tile floors in all areas except the bedrooms. You'll find high-end finishes throughout.
You will be able to watch the ocean from the kitchen sink, surrounded by granite countertops, high-end stainless steel appliances and a convection oven with warming drawer. Pots and pans, bakeware and utensils are all plentiful for your convenience.
The kitchen is open to the dining and living rooms, all with hardwood flooring. The living room has a 42-inch flatscreen TV, a sectional sofa large enough to fit the entire family, and an oversized chair-and-a-half. Doors open to a large deck with chairs and a table for meals looking over the water. A bedroom with a queen bed along with a full bathroom complete the top floor.
The second level consists of three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master has a king size bed, flatscreen TV, large closet, bathroom with dual vanities, a LARGE soaking tub, separate shower, and private access to a large deck. Another bedroom has a king size bed, flatscreen TV, walk-in closet and direct door to a jack-and-jill bathroom shared with an additional bedroom. The final bedroom has two sets of bunkbeds for a total of 4 twin beds and a TV/DVD combo to put movies on for the kids...it's the perfect spot for the kids to have sleepovers at the beach!
We do not charge a cleaning fee with standard weekly rentals, so you will pay the rental amount, security deposit, and taxes only. No hidden fees!
Several small conveniences are offered to make your stay easier - trash bags, a collection of spices in the kitchen, dish soap, hand soap for every sink, laundry detergent and fabric softener all await you. Just bring your family or friends and your linens and enjoy a wonderful vacation at the beach!

We are a working family who share our vacation home with other families during the Summer so they can create great family memories when we're not able to use the home ourselves. You will always deal with us directly and not some impersonal property management company.
We love spending lazy days at the beach with our kids and visiting all the local attractions, like the aquarium, ferry to Southport, Fort Fisher, and pier and deepwater fishing.
Nathan and Carey Gross purchased this townhome in 2010
This is a great area to completely get away if you want to because it's in a secluded residential area, not stuck within a bunch of hotels/condos with the rest of the masses on vacation. You can also take part in the multitude of things to do on the island if you want to stay busy. There are plenty of kid-friendly activities and also things for just the adults...i.e. aquarium, restaurants/bars, beach, fishing, and more!. Wilmington via a short drive and the ferry to Southport is conveniently located at the end of the island...both are great day trips.
This home has stunning ocean views and is very private in a residential area. It also has a rare beach access without any public parking spaces. This means you can sit on the beach and look left and right and see crowds in the distance and wonder why it isn't crowded where you are. No public parking means the only people on the beach next to you are the locals and others renting houses nearby. A less-crowded beach area is a big benefit during a popular beach week.
This home is near everything, and is a very well maintained property that is head and shoulders above other rental properties.
We had a wonderful time at the beach, we really enjoyed it. Your house is beautiful and it accomadated us very well. Thank you so much!
We rented this house for a family vacation. Everything was lovely. The house is very well maintained and the top floor was perfect. Everything was super clean and in great condition! Huge updated kitchen that is open to the dining and family room area. This rental was extremely well stocked! Everything from kitchen utensils to cooking pots and pans. The balcony view was great for morning coffee and evening drinks. It was wonderful having beach access so close. It was public access, but there was no parking, so the access is only used by residents. Much less crowded than other parts of the beach. Would definitely stay again.
We very much enjoyed our stay in your home. The only issue we did have was with the refrigerator (which you warned us about). Otherwise it was very relaxing and enjoyable to stay in your home.
My family and I stayed here for a week this summer for vacation. It was very clean and comfortable. We loved having two king beds for two couples. The kitchen was updated and extremely nice for a vacation home. Lots of room especially in the main living area on the top floor. Very short walk to the beach and you can see it from the windows in the living room as well. The owners are wonderful to work with and are available when/if needed.
We are a family of 4 and had more room than we needed. Loved the floor plan. Would highly recommend this home to anyone wanting to visit the Kure Beach area. Before and during our stay Nathan, the owner was easy to reach and very helpful. The only recommendation for improvement would be better directions on how the TV's work. Nathan would have helped us if we had asked. It was not a priority for us.
We enjoyed our stay at Carey and Nathan's house very much. It was as described and picture, and it is just a few minutes' walk from a clean and pleasant beach. We were a party of eight--my husband and myself, our two sons and their wives, and two granddaughters ages 4 and 2 1/2--and the house accommodated us very well. Having a fourth bedroom which the girls shared was a nice feature. There's plenty of room, the beds are comfortable, and the terrace is a great place to read, enjoy activities with the children (blowing bubbles, Mr. Potato Head, etc.), or have morning coffee or lunch, with a view of the ocean. This was our first stay at Kure Beach, but we found plenty to do--Kure Beach Pier, Fort Fisher Aquarium, Fort Fisher itself, playgrounds, visits to Carolina Beach and Wilmington--and we enjoyed the bicycles we rented from Carey and Nathan. They were very patient and informative hosts when I had questions before our stay. I would recommend the house highly, and we hope to return in the future.
One never knows if when arriving at a destination if it will match the description and reviews posted. Pleasantly surprised, this clean, spacious, uncluttered, ocean view haven was the perfect vacation destination. With plenty of room to spread out it allowed for plenty of privacy and a good night’s sleep. The decorations were minimal but tasteful, making it very kid friendly. The kitchen was spacious and displayed an ocean view. The living room had comfy seating and many large windows to let in the bright summer sun. The walk to the beach was easy and allowed for a quick retreat for lunch. We were not disappointed and had a lovely time in this comfortable, up-to-date home. The only regret is we didn't get up more mornings to go eat donuts at Britt’s. Thanks for a wonderful, well maintained home away from home.
This home is located on Pleasure Island, home to some of the most beautiful North Carolina beaches, including the towns of Carolina Beach, Kure Beach, and Historic Fort Fisher. Our beaches are easily accessible with a vibrant year round community only minutes south of historic Wilmington, NC and just a short ferry ride from Southport, NC and the Grand Strand of Myrtle Beach, SC.
Our island has something for every member of the family, with gorgeous beaches, wonderful parks, a summer carnival every summer evening for kids of all ages and a boardwalk full of ice cream and beach stores that will take you back to a simpler time. We have golf, bike rentals, state parks and historic sites, an aquarium, a ferry and wonderful family-friendly restaurants. And, just a short drive away you'll find all the benefits Wilmington, NC, has to offer like golf courses, upscale shopping, a water park, the fabulous river front and historic district, a children's museum, serpentarium and more.
We promise you won't be bored for a second on Pleasure Island..... unless you want to be. If that's the case, grab an umbrella and some towels and head out to the beach for laid back beach life away from the crowds. Either way, everyone enjoys life and relaxes on Pleasure Island.
