About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Come visit this beautiful, like-new, beachfront home. Watch the sunrise over the sparkling blue Atlantic as you enjoy your breakfast on the spacious deck, stroll along the beach to the nearby fishing pier and restaurants, or catch your own meal. Swim, surf, sunbathe, sightsee, no matter which activity you choose, 'Over the Moon' is the ultimate relaxation rental.

The third story of the home includes a spacious, master bedroom suite with 27-inch television and gorgeous ocean view. The second upstairs bedroom boasts two bunk beds, another television, and ocean view. Even the third-level washer/dryer room has a view!

The second level hosts a gourmet kitchen with everything from the usual appliances to specialty items such as lobster pots and a wine refrigerator. If you have got a crowd to feed, do not worry! In addition to the dining room table, five barstools line the kitchen counter.

The kitchen joins a beautifully decorated spacious living room with flat-screen TV/DVD, a comfy pull-out couch, overstuffed chair, dining room table, bookcase, and breathtaking ocean view. The windows are so large you almost feel as if you are outside!

The large deck has plenty of deck chairs for sunning, reading, and relaxing, as well as a large charcoal grill and full patio set with table and matching chairs and private, beach walkway with shower. As the deck overlooks the ocean, this is where you will spend most of your time!

The downstairs level has an additional bedroom with queen-sized bed and TV/VCR, full bath, garage access, and the home's entrance.

The surrounding area is one of the most beautiful areas on the eastern seaboard. Fish, sail, boat, golf, parasail, jet ski, or just relax soaking up the sun, watching the waves crash. The beautiful property and endless available activities make this the perfect vacation rental!

About Bob and Cathy Noonan

We have been married for over 30 years and are lucky to have three grown children, who love going to the house as much as we do. We can't go often because of work schedules, so we like to think of other families enjoying the house. Our many repeat guests comment about the cleanliness and suitability for families of Over the Moon.

Bob and Cathy Noonan purchased this house in 2004

Why Bob and Cathy Noonan chose Coastal North Carolina

We purchased Over the Moon because of its quiet family-friendly location in Kure Beach, its gorgeous views, proximity to the Aquarium, ferry to Southport, Fort Fisher Civil War Museum (Fort Fisher was mentioned several times in the movie 'Lincoln'), fishing pier and nearby golf courses, as well as for good biking and walking around the town.

What makes this house unique

We like to bike, walk, swim, fish, pick up shells, and kayak outside. Inside we love watching the sun rising and setting from the decks, cooking while enjoying the oceanview, playing cards and games. We just enjoy being right on the ocean!

Fantastic vacation

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in a wonderful location. It is a very comfortable well taken care of home with incredible views.

The beds are comfy. The kitchen is well appointed. The home has everything you need for a peaceful relaxing vacation.

Sit on the back deck and watch the dolphins swim by, sunbath on the impressive beach or jump in the ocean for a refreshing swim. It doesn’t get much better than this.

Convenient location to restaurants, shops and entertainment.

Can’t wait to come back!

Over the Moon was wonderful. The location was excellent. The house is clean, and have everything we needed. Our small children loved running on the beach collecting shells. We watched the dolphins in the morning. It was relaxing to listen to the waves at night. There are many extras that made this feel like a home away from home.

Nice location

  • 4 of 5

The location was great. The house needed some work. It needed painting and there were several maintenance issues with the house that needed to be addressed, door handles not working, towel racks broken etc.

the pictures honestly looked better than the house did in person. For the money, we felt it was overpriced. The kitchen was well stocked and the furnishings were comfortable.

Owner's Response: We are disappointed this guest did not have a 100% satisfactory experience. Before each summer season we ensure the entire house; including carpets, furniture and windows are thoroughly cleaned. Additionally we have a professional painter power wash and paint. We also retain a close by professional property manager who immediately corrects reported deficiencies. If an issue cannot be immediately corrected, the manager also affords each guest the opportunity to complete a satisfaction survey upon departure and all noted deficiencies are then corrected.

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Over the Moon was a relaxing getaway that my husband and I needed. We were able to look outside our bedroom window in the morning and see dolphins swimming by. We loved how you could walk right outside the living room and have your feet in the sand. The Kure Beach town was very charming and had a great pier where you could watch all the locals fish. The house was spotless and comes with everything you would need, including a beautiful kitchen. This is a vacation spot that we would book again.

Great family vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed Over the Moon. Located in Kure Beach directly on the ocean, it has everything one would hope for. The kitchen has every appliance one would need on vacation. Inside, there are movies to watch, books to read and a beautiful kitchen to cook in. Outside, there are pelicans flying back and forth near the rooftop, dolphins swimming in the ocean and a private boardwalk directly to the ocean. My two year old loved running up and down the boardwalk while I sat on the back deck :).

Amazing Week

  • 5 of 5

Coming back for more! This was our second trip to this home. Instead of one young child we had two now. Even with two, this home still blows us away with the conveniences, accessibility and space. The views are amazing as well! Being familiar with the area now, we really wanted this trip to be a relaxing adventure by the ocean rather then exploring the area. Most mornings were cool, but as soon as we were done with breakfast it was warm enough to go play by the ocean. We had a stretch of incredible weather and were able to swim in the ocean most of the days. We did take the kids to Wilmington one day and toured the Cotton Exchange and were able to walk the boardwalk down by the river. Another day, we were able to explore the aquarium which is a favorite for our children. The remaining days were spent fishing on the beach and making castles in the sand. It was truly an amazing getaway especially stepping away from the cold fall weather of Michigan. Going to this place is always an amazing trip for our family. Can't wait to look at coming back soon.
