Enjoyed Our Stay

  • 4 of 5
We had rented a cottage a few times from another owner with a house just up the street from this one so we knew the location was really good. The other place wasn't available when we needed it so the search was on! I was a little concerned because I hadn't allowed much time to look for a place. But our daughter and I found this one and we went ahead to book it. The owner was very responsive to my emails. The house is very nicely decorated and spacious. We enjoyed the LG appliances - the cooktop is helping me decide on a new stove for at home! There could be a few more dishes such as small plates, coffee mugs, and serving utensils, as I found myself washing by hand a little more than I had wanted to. There were only 3 of us there so a bigger group would have had to use paper plates. Had it been summer we could have used the grill and probably would have used paper plates at least for lunch and dinner. Not a big deal but it would have been nice to have a bigger supply of dishware. The house was very clean and linens were supplied by a company. This was very helpful since I didn't have to pack as much to bring with us. Left a note for the linen company because we didn't need all of the sheets that were provided. We used the two queen beds but not the twin bunk beds. Hated for them to waste water by washing clean linens again so hopefully they saw my note. The instructions for what to do with the dirty linens on the website don't totally agree with instructions left by the linen supplier with the bags of sheets and towels so that should be clarified. As the previous reviewer mentioned, the house has been updated nicely, but it hasn't taken away the charm of what was there originally. Initially, we couldn't get the cable TV up and running and contacted the owner, who was very responsive. In the meantime, my husband and daughter figured it out and all was fine. Our daughter needed to veg a little with the TV since she had had a busy schedule at UNCW and this stay at the beach house was a welcome break for her. She so enjoyed having our dog there and he adapted very quickly. We had lots of great walks and took him with us almost everywhere we went so that was a plus! This location is great! Would recommend to others and we'd come back. We like the Veggie Wagon, Jack Mackerel's, and the breakfast places all within a short driving distance.

I have been vacationing up & down the East Coast nearly every summer for 40+ years & I can honestly say Sea la Vie is among the top 5 of the best houses ever! We had found ourselves in the position of having to try to book the right-sized house, in a previously unfamiliar location, within our very tight budget with less than 3 months to spare before a dear family member's big wedding in Wilmington, NC. Fortunately I found Sea la Vie almost immediately. I was very pleased with the owner's prompt response to all my emails & relieved I was able to resolve our housing issue so quickly. It is difficult to appreciate the size of a room from a photo so I had anticipated smaller rooms & worried we might feel crowded. Needless to say, the last thing we wanted to experience after our 10 hour drive was disappointment in the house we'd be sharing with 6 other adults for an entire week! As soon as we walked into the house I realized I had lucked out & found a gem! All the rooms were bigger than they appeared in the pictures & very comfortable...that's the moment my mind shifted into vacation mode.

It was wonderful to be so close to the beach; that statement deserves it's own line!!

The layout of the house separates the bedrooms nicely so everyone has enough privacy, while the common areas allowed all 7 adults to enjoy relaxed comfort while cooking, eating or watching TV together. The remodeling & updates that were made give the house a new house feel without losing any of the charm. The house was clean & the furnishings were comfortable. So often we've rented beach houses that have had weak or broken furniture or major appliance breakdowns, but not here; everything was in good condition & working great!

There are a few things that need to be replenished & you may want to plan to bring from home: plastic forks, spoons & knives & clothes hangers. I imagine these shortages are likely due to previous tenants because major inadequacies in supplies was not consistent with how the owner stocked the rest of the house. The large walk-in closets were a nice surprise! These few shortages were easily resolved after a trip to Walmart, albeit not a permanent solution for the guests who came after us.

Regardless of those very minor issues, I feel we got more than our 'money's worth' renting this house. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this house to friends or family, and if we are visiting Kure Beach in the future we will be staying at Sea la Vie.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review. We really try to accommodate our guests as best we can and provide them with as much as we can. I will certainly be restocking some things that you mentioned this week. Its a never ending battle but its part of renting the home out. We would love to accommodate you again, please give me a call or email me if you plan a trip to Kure Beach again.

Regards,
Jana Donohoe

Location

Activity and Interests

Exploring Kure Beach and surrounding areas is a great way to reconnect with what really matters. Walk the trail at the Civil War fort. Drop by the NC aquarium's Adventure Reef, a new outdoor play area opening June 11 or visit marine life including alligators, snakes, sharks, stingrays, moray eels, seahorses, sea turtles, and more.

Tee off on one of the 60 beautiful golf courses that earned the region the #8 spot on "Golf Digest's Best Little Golf Town in America" list. Hop a ferry for a scenic trip to the Southport or grab your lucky fishing pole and head to the 712-foot Kure Beach Fishing Pier. See the town from a breathtaking perspective, strap yourself into a parasail and soar high above the coastline. Dine on delicious seafood at one of our family-owned restaurants. From sand castles to surfing to shopping, Kure Beach has plenty of things to do on land, sea, and air.
