About the property

Townhome, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Pier Gazer-Oceanfront Complex w/ Pool, 1 Block to Pier, Downtown

Unit C is an OCEANVIEW unit in an oceanfront complex. The views are stunning and the beach access is just 45 steps from the pool!

The location is as amazing as the interior features. Take a stroll down the newly built boardwalk on Atlantic Ave. Just 1 block from the Kure Beach Fishing Pier, restaurants, and shopping. This four unit condo complex includes a pool with stained concrete decking for a cool retreat in the summer. Pool is open from May 1-September 30.

Given the small size of the complex and the fact that the other units are owner occupied, this unit is not for people looking to have loud parties. This home is ideal for folks looking for a nice family vacation & having a great time at a wonderful NC Beach!

This 3 story unit has an elevator and a top floor observation deck with stunning panoramic views of Kure Beach.

The top floor living area offers expansive views of the ocean and fishing pier. Nighttime views feature glistening waters from the pier lights. The fully equipped kitchen matches up with all the luxuries this property has to offer, with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and kitchen window with town views. A separate media room includes a wet bar, half bath and wine fridge, also extra sleeping available with the sofa sleeper. See all the downtown area of Kure Beach from the multiple windows in the room or the attached balcony. There are 2 master suites with glass block shower walls, soaking tubs, luxurious oversized tiled showers (with rain showerhead, hand held showerhead & multiple jets in the wall!), granite counters, T.V.s and Queen sized beds.

The two additional bedrooms are located on the ground floor, one with a queen bed and the other has 2 sets of twin-bunk beds, along with a full bath.

Home has 4 LCD TVs, cable (TV in GR has Digital package), local phone & highspeed wireless internet.

Truly a special place, that you can make 'your spot'!

About The Owner

We are two couples with 2 children each who are good friends and established ties to Kure Beach while in graduate school at UNCW. We have young families and enjoy active lifestyles and found that Kure Beach was the perfect place to 'come back to' for a relaxing beach vacation that also was ideally located to great attractions. (Fort Fisher and the aquarium are must-sees!)

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2011

Why The Owner chose Coastal North Carolina

The charm of Kure Beach is undeniable. It is a sleepy little beach community that is just perfect for family vacations. KB is also such an easy drive from the Triangle, which is where we live, as well as anywhere along the East Coast.

We had been looking for a second home in KB for some time, but immediately fell for the location of the Pier Gazer. Just 45 short steps to the beach access (and a very short walk to the pier), we love being able to come and go easily from house to beach. We enjoyed furnishing this home with decor that we felt captured the light and breezy beach feel. Pier Gazer has truly become our home away from home!

What makes this townhome unique

We easily fell into a delightful routine at the Pier Gazer...morning coffee and beautiful sunrise views from the living room deck, scenic strolls along the boardwalk to the pier while the kids play soccer on the beach (one morning we even caught a bagpipe show at the pier!), and leisurely days spent at the beach and the pool. Searching for sea shells in the sand, watching the pelicans dive into the sea or just people watching at KB make our days. We enjoy the easy 3 minute walk to great restaurants at the pier (whether it be Nathan's hotdogs or seafood at Mackerals!). After dinner, a glass of wine in the crows nest is the perfect way to unwind at the end of a 'hard day' at the beach.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful time staying so close to the beach - we loved exploring, Fort Fisher, walking the Hermit Trail, and biking Kure Beach. We love that Kure Beach is a small town with a family atmosphere and lots of diversity among the residents and visitors! We made great use of the multiple porches/Widow's Walk, pool and boardwalk. Recommend this home to everyone :) Visit Britt's Donut Shop in Carolina Beach near the Pavilion!

Beautiful place! Will return!

  • 5 of 5

This place is beautiful. It's part of a 4-unit complex. The neighbors to this unit are super nice. The next 2 units are on the other side of pool. They seemed nice when around and didn't mind we had 4 toddlers and 2 other kids. There were 11 of us total and of was a perfect fit. The loving area is the top level. It's hard to see the beach from this level but there is a roof top deck and it's perfect!! You can see the ocean and hear it. It's such a quite place. Located just down the boardwalk from the pier and restaurants. Carolina beach isn't far away. The beach is literally a walk out the back door, through the pool area and across the boardwalk. There were plenty of nice features to the unit. The laundry room is a must and it worked well for us. The two master suites have amazing baths and showers. The elevator was a nice feature. It is super slow but we didn't have to carry groceries all the way up to the top which is a plus in my book. I could go on and on but I highly recommend this place for anyone!

The Perfect Beach Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

When we started hunting for a rental place at the beach for our extended family (six people including a toddler), we had parameters that we thought would be impossible to meet: minimum of four bedrooms, walk to the beach, swimming pool, accessible without stairs, and available starting mid-week. We were delighted to find this exquisite unit that met and exceeded all our expectations. Beautiful modern construction, high-end fixtures and furnishings throughout, creative interior floor plan, thoughtfully designed and maintained, and its own private elevator! The beach was at most a one-minute walk, easy even for the oldest and youngest among us, and there's just about every amenity you can think of, including multiple wide-screen TVs, WiFi, and a separate media and game room. It's nestled in quiet and charming Kure Beach, removed from but with easy access to the bustling Carolina Beach boardwalk. Perhaps best of all, the owners are gracious and welcoming, and went out of their way to accommodate our scheduling. Truly, if we could wave a magic wand, we wouldn't change a single thing about our week at this lovely beach home.

Fabulous house and awesome beach weekend!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our girls weekend in this wonderful home! The house was beautiful, very clean, and very spacious for our party of 6. We were surprised how large the bedrooms and living areas actually are. I really enjoyed the large shower with 6 shower heads, nice touch. The house has a fabulous roof top deck to enjoy the view and the sun and a lovely covered deck when you need a little break from the sun. The house is steps away from the beach and just 2-3 miles from all the great restaurants and night life we wanted to take advantage of. The owner, Anne, was so friendly and readily available for any questions or assistance we needed. I highly recommend this home for small groups or a couple of families. We can't wait to return next year! Thank you!!

Can't Beat This Place!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this house! We were two families (2 adults and 2 children each) on a week's vacation. The house is beautiful! It's very large with tall ceilings and lots of natural light; plenty of space for everyone. The fact that there is another house between it and the beach does not diminish the view at all. There is plenty of ocean to enjoy from the living room and the decks. The afternoon provides lots of shade so the living room level deck becomes a cool retreat from the sun. The pool gets nice afternoon shade as well so if you want to swim and need a break from the sun it's a great option. The rooftop deck was a big treat especially in the evening. Great place to stargaze after a day at the beach. I'm starting to sound like I don't like the sun...I do, I do love the sun! But we loved what this house had to offer apres sun and surf. The master baths were stunning and a very nice way to spend sometime getting ready for the day or evening. Can't say enough about this house. It served us well and I couldn't find a fault. Ok...maybe the master bath shower was a tad too lux. It took sometime to learn how to operate it but everyone seemed happy once they figured it out.

What a wonderful trip! The property was better than described. It was absolutely gorgeous and getting to the beach was a short stroll away. The 2 master bedrooms was a wonderful thing. My daughter could not wait to take a shower with the 6 shower heads. The layout was great and the location was quiet. I so enjoyed my morning coffee and my evening glass of wine on the upper deck while having a great view of the beach. We will definitely be back!
