About the property

4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This property 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 of the bedrooms without paying the high oceanfront premium.

This 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 it's 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 a an everyday well-used rental property because there is low traffic through it and it's in a secluded residential area away from the congested mainstream tourist areas.

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. The furnishings are all high end as well. 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 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'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, refundable security deposit, and taxes only. No hidden fees!

Kure beach is unique because there are no large condos or hotels and it is more of a family beach and this property is in the perfect spot within the town...where you can feel like you're away from it all but get to everything the island has to offer with a short drive or bike ride. The beach is also just steps away with the closest beach access just about right across the street.

The house is furnished with everything you need with exception of your personal items....we even provide laundry detergent and fabric softener all await you. So just bring your family or friends, your linens, and food/drinks and enjoy a wonderful vacation at the beach!

About Nathan and Carey Gross

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

Why Nathan and Carey Gross chose Kure Beach

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.

What makes this townhome unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

House was great! so much

  • 4 of 5

The house was beautiful. Enjoyed our stay. Had a terrible time with Customer service debacle almost cost us the trip after it was too late to find somewhere else. But the Owners were fantastic.

Wonderful week at Kure Beach

  • 5 of 5

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.

Incredible vacation and vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Very Nice Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

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.

Charlotte family

  • 5 of 5

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.

A relaxing time at the beach

  • 5 of 5

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.
