Property Details

Updated: May 20, 2015
House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 10 Sleeps

Kure Beach was named top 10 most beautiful beaches in 2010-11 in the U.S by travel guide.

Slow down, take your time. The small family-oriented community of Kure Beach, N.C. lies at the southern tip of North Carolina's Pleasure Island. Kure Beach is a true 'getaway destination' where uncrowded beaches, casual restaurants and comfortable accommodations are a favorite for a growing number of vacationers. Nestled on the southeastern coast of North Carolina between the Atlantic ocean and the Cape Fear River visitors will enjoy a relaxing vacation in quiet beach surroundings with all the action of Wilmington nearby!

2000 Sq. Ft home features 4BD/3BA (sleeps 8) in private community with ocean views from living room and a short walk(2 min/216 yds) to gorgeous PRIVATE beach. There are two master suites one on the upper main living area and one downstairs. With over 1000 Sq. ft of outdoor living space you'll be able to take in all the soothing comforts of beach living while relaxing on one of two large decks or screened in porch. The House has been decorated with charming and fresh beach decor, has beautiful heart pine hardwood floors, modern appliances, neccessary cookware and utensils. There are two living areas to watch TV, 1 upstairs and 1 downstairs. The house also has a private outdoor shower to rinse those sandy parts.

3 Queen Beds, 2 twin beds, 1 Queen Sofa Sleeper, 1 Daybed on screened porch if desired to sleep on.

The Neighborhood and surrounding area

Kure Estates is a charming quiet family oriented neighborhood, (Our house is located on a cul-de-sac) Neighborhood features private beach front gazebo with parking. You will enjoy the smell of fresh blooms during the spring and summer months and the swaying palm trees all year round. Late summer brings dolphines and sea turtles to our waters and is truely a magical sight. Our Neighborhood is close to Kure Beach fishing pier, Fort Fisher (Civil War site), Drive on beach (dog friendly-All year), NC Aquarium, and a Ferry that goes to Southport. During the summer months the town presents fireworks every Thursday and family movies at the lake every Sunday...all is free.

There are many opportunities to experience the area's past at historic sites, including museums, churches, cemeteries, historic homes, battlefields and a 230 block National Register Historic District. You can also see the self-guided tour of the battleship USS North Carolina or take a cruise on the Henrietta III, North Carolina's largest riverboat. Historic Wilmington offers three themed shopping complexes: Coast Line Convention Center, Cotton Exchange and the Chandler's Wharf.

Wilmington and surrounding beaches are also considered to be Hollywoods East. See real locations and actual sets where your favorite TV Shows, movies & mini-series were shot, including Dawson's Creek, One Tree Hill, Matlock, Oprah Winfrey's: The Wedding, and Windmills of the Gods. Some of Wilmywood's biggest movies include; Sleeping With The Enemy, Blue Velvet, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Divine Secrets Of The Ya-Ya Sisterhood, Weekend At Bernie's, A Walk To Remember & Dozens & Dozens More!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was absolutely perfect for our family and group. We truly felt at home and loved the experience.

Fishing off the pier was a whole new experience and the aquarium was an awesome deal with terrific exhibits.

Morning runs on the beach and boogie boarding on the waves can't be beat! We already can't wait to come back!!

$13 boat ride-Sunset cruise

Havanas-Good food at the higher end $15-$20 a plate.

Extended Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5
We had 3 generations all come together in Kure Beach to stay at this perfect house. 4 bedrooms, 2 decks, short walk to the beach. We had 4 cars so plenty of parking. Only negative which was an easy fix. The smoke detector needed the battery changed. The owner responded quickly to all questions even last minute before we arrived. Beautiful easy weekend away.

We had a great time with our family at Kure Beach

  • 4 of 5
The house was as advertised, great location, clean and close to the beach. The location worked well for us with lots of activities for our group. We visited the aquarium and the fort. The ferry ride to Southport and the town of Southport was really worth the trip. There is a really great new brew pub right down the road, Good Hops!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our recent stay at Kure Beach. The house was nice, very clean and had everything we needed. The beach was just a short walk away. There are some good resturants close by so you don't have to travel into Wilmington just to eat. We took the ferry to Southport one night to eat at "The Frying Pan",pretty good choice.

My only complaint would have to be the Dish Network channel package. I don't plan on watching TV that much on vacation but it was College World Series time and I sure missed having at least ESPN to keep up with the game highlights.

The beach was not very crowded with a pier just a short walk to the south. We had a great week and will plan to come back. The owners were very nice and easy to work with.

Owner's Response: I am happy to hear you enjoyed your week at the beach! Thank you for recommending some good restaurants for our future guests. I highly recommend taking the Southport ferry and glad you did.
I will have to look into the ESPN channel for future sports fan guests as I didn't realize we did not get that channel. Thank you again for staying with us and please come back and visit us soon!

Perfect for Family Meet-Up

  • 5 of 5
We were lucky to get a nightly rental on this great unit after someone else canceled. Four large bedrooms with adjoining bathrooms AND a warm shower outside after beach visits! We read on the sleeping porch, grilled and chilled on the deck, walked the short trek to the beach, dusted ourselves off in the HOA beach kiosk on the return trip. Plenty of seats for all and the dining area is huge. Owners have stocked the kitchen with enough to throw a small Martha Stewart-style party. Kids enjoyed the body boards the most! Did not locate the beach canopy, but the clouds took care of that. Plenty of beach towels provided.
We have stayed in Kure three times now, usually on the beach. We were glad to give up the beach view for the amenities this site offered. The Donohous are thoughtful hosts. We had plenty of together time and enough space for those necessary down times. We'd do it again, and probably will!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review. I am glad that the cancellation worked out well for you and you were able to stay at our place. We really try to keep everything that a family would need stocked in the kitchen and happy that you noticed! We look forward to accommodating your family again soon. Thank you again and enjoy the rest of your summer.

Great vacation!

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay! The house is in great shape, very clean. The location was great, my in laws are right down the road so we were able to meet up with them and still had a place to crash every night. My brother and girlfriend and their two dogs joined us on our vacation and we all went to Ft Fischer to hang out on the beach, we rented a jeep and had the best time!!! We also rented a tandem bike and took the best bike rides at night. The carnival at Carolina beach is great our 2 1/2 year old had a great time. We also went to Wilmington for the day I love the shopping there!
Looking forward to next year!

wonderful stay

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful stay. House was very clean,decor was awesome. We were a family of 5 w/3 dogs. 3 were "20 somethings". Beach was fantastic & just a block away! Dog beach was 3 miles away at FT Fisher. Ft Fisher was pretty neat to visit. We also visited the USS North Carolina -approx 20 minutes away. Carolina Beach right up the road had a lot of restaurants, carnival atmosphere in center of town. The pier at Kure Beach was nice! we got close & Personal w/the pelicans! Can go fishing there too. Disappointed I couldn't find a conch shell but that's the way it goes. Wilmington is 15 minutes north - kids went to BWW to watch the basketball finals.The back deck was a nice place to relax!. The only thing we didn't like was that - it advertised a fenced in back yard - well it WAS fenced in but the size was VERY tiny - no place for the dogs to stretch & run. But for a small dog it would be ok. Kitchen was fantastic. We chose to eat in most nights - we grilled out - grills were provided. only thing -- lot of steps to the main living area - not for someone that has problems walking or climbing steps.
