Beautiful Oceanfront Home

Review submitted: August 24, 2014   Date of arrival: August 9, 2014

We truly enjoyed our stay at Emma's Dream. The home is spacious, well-maintained and in a great location. The owners of the property were extremely helpful and easy to work with. It was our first visit to Kure Beach and we look forward to visiting again in the future.

Very Special!

Review submitted: August 14, 2014   Date of arrival: June 13, 2014

What a special home to enjoy the beach with family and friends! Everything was so comfortable and welcoming at Emma's Dream. Jen is a caring owner and was quite helpful in answering our questions. She also has a fantastic guide she’s assembled which made our week stress-free since we didn’t know the area beforehand, but we all left feeling like local residents, thanks to Jen's recommendations. We enjoyed getting out exploring Civil War history at Fort Fisher, including little known Battery Buchanan, and even took a charter fishing trip one day through Island Tackle. Our favorite places to eat, at Jen's suggestion, were Buster’s Pit Beef—barbecue and crab cake sandwiches were delicious—and Pop’s Ice Cream for dessert. We recommend Granny’s Country Kitchen for breakfast (little bit of a wait but well worth it) and found Saint’s Cove Beach Bar to be family friendly. For a great experience at Kure Beach, we recommend booking through Jen at Emma’s Dream.

Great Beach House

Review submitted: July 22, 2014   Date of arrival: July 25, 2013

We enjoyed this house and would be glad to stay again sometime. Home was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. Ocean views were amazing and the house had an excellent location near a lifeguard station with an easy walk to the fishing pier.

Our New Vacation Spot!

Review submitted: June 7, 2014   Date of arrival: June 15, 2013

We vacationed here with our 2 teenagers and my parents and it was a perfect retreat for our three-generation family. The house is lovely, even better than the pictures. Very spacious. Each of us enjoyed our own bedrooms with separate doors to the oceanfront decks. It was amazing to enjoy our coffee while watching the sunrise or to enjoy stargazing the clear skies at night. My parents stayed in the bedroom located on the main floor which was extremely convenient for them. They have some mobility issues so being able to go right out onto the deck to the beach was a plus, and it was easy for them to get to the kitchen, dining and living areas. The house was well stocked for our cooking and eating needs during the week, and the home’s furnishings were beautiful. We felt at home. The owners are very nice to work with. We are returning this summer and look forward to creating more happy memories at this special place before our oldest heads to college.

A spectacular week in an amazing home!

Review submitted: May 15, 2014   Date of arrival: August 17, 2013

A spectacular week in an amazing home! We want to live here forever. Great Beach & Ft. Fisher Visistors Center. for "history". Found the local fish market hidden off the road. "Want sea bass filets? No problem. I'll cut up some for y'all." Turtle-hatching a memorable nature/conservation experience. Two boils of turtles hatched while we were here.

Awesome Beach Home

Review submitted: September 4, 2013   Date of arrival: August 3, 2013

What a beautiful home, exactly as pictured. Location on the beach was great, not crowded. Perfect for our three little ones. House was very clean and had everything you could need. Had a little problem with the oven but the owner was on top of the situation and responded right away. We would definitely recommend this property and would love to come back again some day. We had great weather and enjoyed the beach. Enjoyed watching the sunrise every morning. We were fortunate to witness a loggerhead turtle nest hatch out, very exciting. We enjoyed a trip to the aquarium, Fort Fisher and took a ride on the ferry. The guys enjoyed golfing. The food at Michael's Seafood was excellent. Put the grill to good use, cooked a turkey. Everything was perfect for our family for our first family beach vacation.

Open Beachy Getaway

Review submitted: July 11, 2012   Date of arrival: July 15, 2011

We enjoyed this home so much. It really is as open and roomy as it appears in the pictures. We enjoyed sitting on the deck taking in the ocean breeze and watching the surf. Having a bath house in which to wash off when coming from the beach was a real plus. It was also nice to walk along the relatively uncrowded beach and convenient to get to the local attractions, like the Civil War battlefield and ferry at Fort Fisher and the wharf and battleship downtown. We can wholeheartedly recommend spending your Kure Beach vacation here.
