About the Owner

After 25 years in the Washington D.C. area we retired to Kure Beach. This property was originally bought for us to retire. We later bought another house up the street and began to rent this one in 2002. We have continued to rent this property since then, mostly as weekly summer rentals but we do accept renters during the off season also for less than on a weekly basis.

A Truly Amazing Week

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this home for a week and all of our kids and grandkids joined us, coming from SC, NC, WI, and CO. The house was wonderful. It had everything we could possibly need. Each couple had their own bedroom and bath (4 of each) and the living area and kitchen allowed plenty of room for all to feel comfortable and not crowded. The house was clean and well maintained. The views from the house were amazing and the beach access was so easy. We even put a small pool on the deck for our two granddaughters. They loved it. Pam and Ray were wonderful to work with. They made the whole experience so easy. Our family talked the last night over dinner and agreed that we would love to come back to this house next year. We are already excited about it. We also loved the residential area, not busy like Myrtle Beach or even Carolina Beach. Yet, there were plenty of restaurants and attractions close by. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone. The only thing we could possible want in addition to what is provided would be an elevator for getting all of our things upstairs. We managed without it, though. Thanks to Ray an Pam for sharing their home with us. What a joy and pleasure.

A Great Time Was Held by All!

  • 5 of 5

Six "senior" adult friends, 5 quilters and one husband, spend a wonderful week in this lovely home. The view from the decks is awesome--never a dull moment watching the ocean. We shopped from Wilmington to Southport, (didn't miss a single "Thrift Shop") or a quilt shop) played games in the evenings, shared meals, slept, read, and rested. All in all a wonderful time. The house was clean and well equipped--anything you will need for a vacation. We will plan to come again if everything works out. There were some facilities for young children--for those who might need them. The stairs are a bit challenging, but we were able to do fine.

Wonderful Place!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We totally loved your place. It was very roomy and clean. The pictures accurately display what it looks like. I wondered if rooms would be smaller than they looked but they were not. We had some other family members that were down over to eat one night and it was very comfortable. We loved that you supplied toys and our twin granddaughters enjoyed playing with them and one of them particularly loved rinsing off in your warm water outdoor shower. Thank you Ray and Pam for a great place to stay. BTW, do you both have a "fish" at the boardwalk?

Another Great Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Just came back from another great stay at the beautiful "Bramhall by the Sea" oceanfront house. Last year we were here with family, this year we introduced 2 new couples to this perfect vacation getaway. It was especially nice to have so much room and each couple had complete privacy for bedroom/bath but could enjoy the great open-style kitchen/living room for get-togethers, meals, etc.

The house is set up so you can enjoy ocean views from just about everywhere. The high deck chairs are perfect so you have an un-obscured view of the beautiful ocean. We had several meals on the deck as well as inside dining in the evening.

We also loved the convenient location to one of our favorite restaurants - Jack Mackerels. This is just a short 5 minute walk along the beach to Kure Pier - what could be better!!

House is well equipped with everything you need. Kitchenware, linens, towels, etc - it makes it so much easier to enjoy a rental when you are not lugging all that stuff back and forth.

Our weather was great - especially for late October. It wouldn't really matter though - we had one day of rain and enjoyed staying inside playing cards but could still enjoy watching the fascinating ocean waves.

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently spent a wonderful, relaxing vacation at Bramhall by the Sea. And as with all vacations, it was not long enough. The house is everything as described, and more. There were 3 adults and 5 children (ranging in age from 11-5), and everyone had their own favorite place. The house is 3 stories of beautiful space, with its own access to the beach. Awesome! The weather, though windy and chilly, held nicely. The house was neat, clean, and well organized. The huge master suite, with its view and jacuzzi, is relaxing, calm, romantic and serene. At the end of the day it becomes a retreat. The water toys were a hit with the kids. I especially loved the private outdoor shower (with hot water), and a long water hose. This allowed me to keep the sand off the deck and out of the house. Ray and Pam, made themselves nicely accessible, but we never saw them. The property's location in Kure Beach is perfect. We were within walking distance, or a short (3 minutes) drive from the boardwalk, which has the pier, a game room, several restaurants, bars, and minor shopping. Ray and Pam have created an environment so comfortable, that all you need to provide is food

I would recommend this property for Immediate Families, Multiple Couples, or Small Mature Groups. We would love to visit again.

This Place is Great!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently rented Bramhall by the Sea for a week. It wasn't long enough! Apart from the great vacation we had with the weather,(not a cloud in the sky all week) the home was everything it advertised. Comfortable, clean, roomy and in a great location. We woke every morning to the sun coming up over the horizon of the ocean; which you can see from your bed in the master bedroom One morning we watched a couple of dolphins swimming along the coast. Kure beach is a great location and the people very friendly. A short walk to the pier puts you near a number of restaurants or if you like to cook, the kitchen has everything imaginable. If you have a large family this house has the room to spread out. The three levels have bedrooms and baths on each so privacy is certainly not an issue. With four decks and a patio there's lots of space for your own quiet time. Our favorite was the main deck overlooking the ocean and beach. We couldn't write a review without mentioning the outdoor shower. It is both private and open. It looks over the ocean and has hot and cold water. What a great experience showering in the sun yet not being visible to others. The nearby aquarium is a half day trip and about a 10 minute car ride away. If you've never seen an albino croc., go there.

I can't say enough about the house. Ray and Pam made themselves available but did not intrude. It was great and we plan on going back for a longer period.
