vacation rental description

It has 5 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths in aprox. 2400 sqft all beautifully designed with coastal living in mind. Kitchen with tile counters, large double frig plus beverage frig. All bedrooms are 12x14 and nicely decorated. Home has 5 new flat panel HD tv's and 3 dvd players. Rear porch get's full sun that extends across back of whole house. It has 6 adirondeck chairs, two sun chaises, a large picnic table and tile bar with built in stainless gas grill for large family meals. The covered front porch has a hammock for afternoon naps next to palm trees and additional seating among seasonal tropical flowering plants. A cool breeze seems to always be blowing from the the Cape Fear River to the nearby ocean. The house has covered parking for 4 cars on two separate driveways. The community pool is just 100 feet from back porch but yet trees provide privacy. We also provide a beach wagon, ocean kayak, several beach chairs and beach umbrella.

Seawatch is a private community that is mainly of second homeowners down for the summer or permenant residents. The neighborhood consists of families and is very child friendly. The rental provides complimentary access to the private Seawatch community pool, bathrooms, tennis, playground with playhouse, and common areas. Seawatch has a private community beach access with oceanfront cabana complete with seating area, bathroom and outdoor shower area.It is just 200 yards from house to beach . We often have a glass of wine at the cabana then a evening walk through Seawatch to see the deer with their newborns. It is short 10 minute walk down beach to Kure Beach Pier for fishing, dining, arcade, ice cream or a cold beverage.

Seawatch is just two miles from downtown Carolina Beach which has many restaurants and night time entertainment. The carnival rides are the center of downtown at the boardwalk all summer long. Enjoy the weekly boardwalk fireworks and outdoor family movies at the lake so please check the schedules. Private fishing charters, boat rentals, cocktail and dinner cruises are all available at the marina. Mini golf and arcades are all close by in Carolina Beach. Freeman Park is a city beach just three miles from Seawatch and allows 4x4 vehicles to drive on, build camp fires and let dogs play.You can also rent jeeps in town to get out on the 4x4 beaches.

Fort Fisher State Park is just a 5 minute drive south to the end of the island. It has a 4x4 vehicle beach that is totally isolated and aprox. 3 miles long. Ocean on one side and marshes with creeks for kayaking/ flounder fishing just 100 yards away. It is why they call this' Paradise Island'. The North Carolina Aquarium is at Fort Fisher and is one of the states most popular attractions. They also offer summer camps for kids from 9am to 1 pm. The kids love the camps at the aquarium with indoor and outdoor education (shelling, shrimping and beaching). There also is a civil war museum with live reenactments. It is nice to take the car on the ferry from Fort Fisher across the Cape Fear River and feed the seagulls. It will dock at Southport which is small historic town or board another ferry to Bald Head Island for lunch at the 'EB & FLO's'. It is small island with no cars just golf carts. Climb 'OLD BALDY' lighthouse for panoramic views. The sunsets across the Cape Fear River from the Fort Fisher State Park are amazing on clear days.

Seawatch is just 20 minutes south of historic Wilmington with it's Riverwalk. The Riverwalk on the Cape Fear River has many restaurants and shops. A trolly ride, ghost walk, dinner cruises, reptile museum and live theatre. Across the river you can tour the USS North Carolina Battleship.

The area has plenty of surf fishing , party boats , charter boats and golf.

traveler reviews for this kure beach house rental

the house is incredible inside and out iand within a quiet well-kept neighborhood

Review submitted: July 29, 2014   Date of arrival: June 28, 2014

Scott, thanks for a great vacation! My family and I were impressed with the size and cleanliness of not only the house, but the surrounding facilities (houses and yards very well kept and the pool house and tennis courts were nice, too). Having three and a half baths and outside shower was a blessing. Kids loved the outside shower, especially after the beach. Kure Beach could not have been nicer either. The private access made sun bathing and ocean playing feel as though we were miles from a town. We took a drive up to the boardwalk on Carolina beach but found it to be too crowded. Kure Beach is just a quick walk from the home. We rented two jet skis from North End Rental and would recommend them for an hour of fun. Our three teenage children had a great time at the beach and when using the pool. Our family spotted several ball fields only a few miles from the home. There are lots of activities for all ages nearby. Walking in the surrounding neighborhoods was a morning and evening ritual for us and we saw several deer during the walks. The traffic was minimal and it was nice to walk around without a lot of road noise or heavy traffic. We also loved the nearby drive-on beaches and went several times with our Yukon. This house is truly an ideal place for a family vacation!

278 Seawatch Way -- Equipped for Family Fun

Review submitted: July 28, 2014   Date of arrival: July 19, 2014

My sister and I grew up vacationing at Wrightsville Beach and our parents lived in Wilmington during retirement. When we continued the tradition of vacationing together with with our families in the Wilmington-area we discovered Seawatch in Kure Beach. We have loved our visits to the Skittles houses in quiet, tree-lined Seawatch and all nine of us have voted 278 our favorite!

The home is well equipped for family enjoyment. The decks are spacious and flower-adorned for morning coffee or evening cocktails. The grill was a terrific convenience. And a second fridge--and wine fridge in the kitchen? Brilliant.

The home was spotlessly clean upon check-in. The bedrooms were decorated in sun-kissed colors and the beds were comfortable. When we arrived, a nice array of spices, coffee filters and foil, saran-wrap, etc. awaited us. Such a great help. We added to the house's eco-system by replenishing and adding to those items for the next guests.

Scott has provided chairs, umbrella and wagon and plenty of friendly tips for enjoying the area. Check out his ingenious watering system for the flower pots and hanging baskets.

We are ready to book for next summer. We felt more like a guest in a friend's home than renters of a vacation property. Scott and family have made their home a welcoming place for a memorable family vacation.

The listing is exactly what we were looking for, the opportunity to enjoy the ocean and also have use of the community pool. The residence was appropriately equipped, maintained and clean. We would recommend this rental to friends and are considering returning next year. We went to the aquarium, skydived and took an air tour of the island.
We enjoyed pizza from the local restaurant and the kids had Chinese food while the adults were dining at Michaels. Over all we had an enjoyable experience.
