About The Owner

We love the beach; therefore the purchase of the home. I came from a small town in WV and left home at 18 and worked my way up in the federal government in the DC area.

Not only did I work full time as well as part time to advance myself but educated myself part time over decades to acquire several higher education degrees. As a civilian, I was appointed to the Navy War College. My husband is a retired USMC Purple Heart from Tyler MN and the only survivor in his Echo 2-1 Squad in Vietnam. Was in five campaigns near and on the DMZ as infantry. We stopped counting at his 9 lives. We dedicate ourselves in advancing veterans that need our help. He grew up farming in cold SW, MN in as small Danish Community. We pride ourselves with integrity and fairness. Often I get asked if the rates can be lowered. To be honest, after all said and done, we have one of the lowest rates for the quality of the area, community, and amenities. So many homes are much higher for the same quality and location. Our goal is to ensure that you make memories with your family and to provide a nice quality place for you to do so.

Why The Owner chose Coastal North Carolina

Top Ten Best Beach, warmer weather, and Ocean and Historic Wilmington with ferry ride to Southport for antique shopping or a great seafood lunch or even dinner. Also Kure Beach as well as Carolina Beach have built a new boardwalk. Fishing is outstanding. People are very nice and with a Southern touch of hospitality. You will love just hanging out there. Small Town but Big Hearts and Big Beach.

What makes this house unique

Big front porch, deck porch, feel of ocean breeze, minute to pool, tennis and beach. Private entrance to beach which has a Tiki Beach house for changing, storing, showering and just sitting under the roof watching the ocean. Kure Beach and Carolina Beach made the top ten best beaches in the USA. Walking the beach and looking for Sharks teeth is plentiful. Beaches are wide, clean and beautiful. Kure Beach is definitely a family beach town. Close to fishing piers, boardwalk, Historic Ft. Fisher, Ferry to Southport and the NC aquarium.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Marti & Les,

What a pleasure it was to be one of your first guests! The house is so comfortable and met our needs in every way. The flat screen TV in the livingroom was a particular delight. Your home is beautifully decorated and in such a beautiful neighborhood. We plan on coming back - you can count on that!

A perfect retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to rent this beautiful home for several weeks in April and May. The owners were kind, generous, helpful and accommodating. We fell absolutely in love with the neighborhood - friendly people, great amenities and a quick walk to the pristine beach. The house itself is great - we were just three people, but it would be perfectly suited to a much larger group or family reunion. We LOVED Fort Fisher, and started each morning with a hike or walk on the beach, or even a trip to the aquarium with our little one. Seawatch is perfectly located between the pristine quiet of Ft. Fisher and the busier convenience of Carolina Beach. It truly is the best of both worlds. We are already looking for the next opportunity to get back.

Dreaming of Coral Dreams

  • 5 of 5

Had it all...eastern sun in numerous windows, wonderful to wake up to,

front porch rockers... A great place to have morning coffee,

inside, equally cheerful and relaxing,

Two back decks with outdoor shower,

Huge mb shower,

Blue and turquoise pool was ideal,and there is a beautiful path to it,

Kure park is pretty close and we love sitting on the city's swings looking at the ocean!

Nearby Wilmington has various shopping areas, so many nice restaurants,

And from the house take a drive to Ft. fisher and the ferry to Southport.

You are close to anything you want to do, but we mostly enjoyed the house and just being able to relax. Didn't even mind when it rained, just sat on the porch or crow's nest and read.

Awesome community, lovely home

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's first visit to Kure Beach. The SeaWatch community is in a great location. Very peaceful, but just steps away from the private beach access. The homes are bright and cheery. The pool, tennis courts and playground were very nice and clean. Even the full time residents were friendly, which is a rare find.

This house which my niece simply called our pink house was laid out so well, the bedrooms were spaced out, the den on the lower level could easily be used as an extra bedroom. The stairs inside the house were wide with landings which made them not so steep for our mom that had knee surgery earlier this year. The pink house had everything needed, beach cart in the garage, extra floats and such for those that might forget.

We did have a few issues but nothing that would change my rating about the house itself: 1) this was the worse part, we were first greeted by an overrun on the trash, which was disgusting and animals had gotten into it. My dad ended up cleaning it up. The cleaning crew or rental agency should do a better check of those types of things since garbage pickup isn't til Tuesday (not in line with checkout dates), 2) there was sand in the bathtubs and slow drains, 3) the front door lock needs some repair as there were times we weren't sure we would be able to get back in. 4) the freezer side of the refrigerator was tricky to stay closed, but once the rental agent told us what to watch for, we were able to make it work. I did call the rental agency, they did respond, but we just took care of the stuff we weren't happy about quicker than someone could drive there.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the terrific reviews and the five stars. Yes, there are times when things just will not be perfect. (1) Unfortunately Kure Beach does not pick up trash until Tuesday morning and only once a week. We have purchased several cans to ensure that there is not overflow; however if not closed, animals will get in. (2) No doubt good keys are a challenged when made on the Island. We have tested so many key makers. Some will not go in all the way but must be pulled out just a tiny bit for it to grab and then unlock. This has been placed on our notes to inform the tenants by our management firm. ()(3) Sand is a problem on the Island and it is common for sand to be in tubs and draining can be a problem; however we often have plumbers undrain due to sand. We try to encourage all our guests to shower down at the private Tiki Beach House or use the outdoor shower in back which has much privacy and steps from the lower level entrance prior to entering our home. (4) I called the property management on the freezer door to have this checked. It was working properly when I was there a week ago. We are so grateful for your visit and hope that you return and make more memories.

Quiet refuge

  • 4 of 5

This home was a quiet refuge close to the beach. We enjoyed easy access to the pool and tennis courts. It was about a 5-10 minute walk to the beach, which was okay for my husband and me, but too far for our 4 year old and for grandma. We ended up having to drive them to the beach entrance, because the heat and humidity made the walk too hard. We all enjoyed the quiet, private beaches at Kure and would definitely recommend to anyone who wants a peaceful beach vacation. It was close enough to the boardwalk to enjoy the donuts and carnival rides, but far enough away to not be bothered by the bar scene and noisy throngs of people.

Our only complaints about the property were the following:

1. The master bathroom had a mold problem, probably because of the huge shower. That mold continued into the master bedroom air vent, which I found a bit unnerving while trying to sleep at night.

2. All of the deck furniture and beach chairs were covered with mildew and stains. We would've spent more time on the porches otherwise.

3. The house seems clean on the surface, but the whole place is in desperate need of fresh interior paint and exterior power washing. The cleaning crew for this property is definitely lacking thoroughness.

This house was a major step up from other beach properties we've stayed in, but of course isn't quite like home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the response. Greatly appreciate this. Always want to know what we can do to please our tenants. I love " Quiet Refuse" name that you gave. Yes, it sits among the colorful homes but away from the noise of the pool, children playground and tennis courts. The Spring and Summer has been a huge problem for mold due to the continuous RAINS especially exterior and deck cushions . The home was professionally power washed as well as the deck cushions prior to summer rentals. Without sun basking on our home, it is impossible to keep the mold away with the rains and very little sunshine. Many homes are experiencing the same problem. o make matters worse, our lovely home is among some beautiful trees and often it will shield the sun from the deck which is nice for sitting outside. The do not allow much sun to bask on home when there is sun. This is the first constructive criticism since owning the home on mold. The rains have been impossible to keep away. Mother Nature has a way of doing whatever it wants. Does not surprise us being August for this comment since it has been raining all year. The beautiful German large shower can be a real joy when using. It is very good to leave the shower door open to air out the large shower, which is a strong attribute to our home; however, many rentals do not do this. I always encourage tenants to use the outdoor shower as well. We have not received any information from our professional cleaning crew on this but will ensure that it will be gone soon. Mold is not one of my strong points having respiratory issues and this will certainly be taken care of. The walk to the beach is five minutes and I try to enforce the timing since it may be a little difficult with heat and humidity. It is wise to drop those not wanting to walk at the private entrance. The ride could be a minute or so. Also, there is parking on the grounds of the community near the entrance. There is also a large wagon in the garage that often is used to pull children and or beach stuff and food and water. Thanks for the response and with its criticisms. This is the only way to make our home better. We want you to return to Quiet Refuge to make more memories.
