Awesome Vacation

Review submitted: August 23, 2014   Date of arrival: August 9, 2014

Our family had a wonderful vacation at the Sand Castle house. We have stayed twice and enjoyed it both times. Deck with swing and beach view are great. Walking distance to restaurants, and kitchen with everything you need if you want to cook. We try to get to Kure every two years and we will be staying here again.

Back again!

Review submitted: August 14, 2014   Date of arrival: June 6, 2014

We stayed here before a few years ago and had a wonderful time, so we decided to return. Boy was I blown away at all the owners (Jennifer and her husband) have done to make improvements. The kitchen was amazing. Loved the huge refrigerator with icemaker and the granite countertops. The new design features a spacious dining table so we could all enjoy our meals together nightly. Loved the new commercial sink with garbage disposal. Bathrooms looked completely new and all the rooms had flat screen tvs too. We also got to use the movie apps on the living room Smart TV. House had a strong WiFi connection when we occasionally had to “check in” at home. Thanks Jennifer for making your place even more amazing and high tech! I told one of my friends about your incredible home and she’s going to contact you soon. I'll be in touch also as soon as I know our kids’ school schedule for next year.

We recommend this home to anyone looking for clean, pleasant beachfront accommodations at Kure Beach. It has modern amenities, wifi, and best of all no pets and no smoking. Excellent location on the beach. Owner cares about the house and guests. It was a smooth transaction overall. Honestly, this was one of the best places we’ve stayed and the whole experience exceeded our expectations.

Perfect Place to Stay at Kure Beach

Review submitted: June 9, 2014   Date of arrival: June 22, 2013

We brought our 3 young kids here and it was a hit with everyone. I grew up going to Kure Beach, so it was nice to finally share that experience with my own kids. Kure Beach is still a great beach for families, and this home is in an ideal location--easy beach access, no big steps, and short walk to the fishing pier. It doesn’t get any better than being on the beach! We cooked on the grill and made good use of the deck and picnic table. We also really enjoyed the swing. The cottage interior was nicely decorated and comfortable, and the layout was perfect for us. This home met all of our needs and will be our pick to stay on our next visit to Kure Beach.

Great View

Review submitted: May 22, 2013   Date of arrival: May 11, 2013

Perfect location and view of the ocean and pier! So close to Carolina Beach and Wilmington to make our week long vacation very entertaining and memorable. And my 2 year old loved the Aquarium which is just about 5 minutes from the house. House was perfect for our group of 4 adults and 2 children. The home owner had great communication from the very start and made the renting experience very easy and stress free. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Friends & Family on the Beach, it doesn't get much better than this! Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us! The home is not only comfortable & convenient, it is charming! Perfect place to just unwind and enjoy the beauty of Kure Beach! The kids loved this vacation & the adults were able to become kids again for this time, that now seems all too short! For those of you reading this...we recommend the NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher! And remind you to relax, take this all in... enjoy every day you have on this wonderful beach! Swing on the back deck, listen to the ocean...let this place allow you to appreciate simple pleasures of life on the beach...

June 2012 Family Vacation

Review submitted: July 5, 2012   Date of arrival: June 23, 2012

Jennifer provided us an absolutely fantastic home, and it is even better than depicted on the web page. Clean, airy, and with a super view of the beach. The deck is big enough for a large family - with a picnic table on one side and a swing and deck chairs on the other.

We made constant use of the countertop for preparing food, eating it, and playing lots of board/card games. There isn't a dining room but it wasn't missed in the least. The washer and dryer were very high tech - an unexpected surprise. Not that important to our vacation, but shows the quality of the house.

I would recommend renting sheets, beach chairs, and umbrellas from Seaside Rental. The order process was easy and all were there when we arrived.

Highly recommend this home - just not when we want to stay there which will be soon!!!

Great fishing and sunning

Review submitted: June 28, 2012   Date of arrival: August 31, 2011

I went for the fishing, and I wasn't disappointed. This home was my castle in the sand, and in just a few steps you can have some boss surf fishing. Other than that, I spent time grilling and eating at the table outside on the deck...and soaking up the AC watching the flat screen from the couch. It's real nice, not smoky or musty like some places I've stayed. I like Kure Beach because it isn't overcrowded with people on the sand and you're never too far from where you want to go.

What a beautiful place on the beach! We could see the ocean from the bedroom and the living room and kitchen--and of course that endless outside deck. The furniture and appliances appeared to be new, and we were quite cozy in our stay at this cottage. Everything went smoothly with our rental, and the owner provided some very helpful information to acquaint us with the area. Highly recommended!

April visit

Review submitted: June 19, 2012   Date of arrival: April 14, 2012

We had a great week at this house in April with our 3 small children. The location is perfect and we found the house well suited for a family of 5. It's small but laid out well. We did have one issue with the sink and owners had it fixed right away. FYI you will need to bring your own trash bags, toilet paper, salt/pepper or maybe we were just the first renters of the season. The porch swing is an amazing way to take in the views. We enjoyed our week very much.

Owners response: We're happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at our home! As with all guests, we provided you a courtesy set of housekeeping supplies, including toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, bar soap, laundry detergent, dish detergent, coffee filters, sponges and cleaning supplies, to assist you with settling into our home. (But you may need to provide consumables above and beyond this set as you use them.) Thank you for describing how we promptly address (same day in your case) any maintenance issues that may arise. We make every effort to ensure our home is enjoyable and welcoming to our guests, whom we greatly appreciate.
