About Rita Montero
My roles in life are Mom, Nana, and Sis and Friend. One of my greatest joys in life is sharing Destiny with my daughter and her family. My 3 grandloves are the lights of my life and my daughter's dream came true when I took her to Destiny for the first time. My primary residence is in the beautiful mountains of SW Virginia. I am an amateur photographer who shoots with Canon equipment...I love life and hope to enjoy many years exploring and photographing Pleasure Island!
Rita Montero purchased this Condo in 2017
Why Rita Montero chose Kure Beach
My family and I have vacationed at Kure Beach for many years. We prefer the quaintness of Pleasure Island to the larger and more crowded beaches on the East Coast. After losing my condo in the Great Smoky Mountain wildfires in 2016, I purchased Destiny in 2017. I have been blessed with the best of our world from the mountains to the sea!
What makes this Condo unique
Destiny provides everything I need and want in vacation property....a view every morning of the Atlantic, with fish, sea birds, dolphins, whales, surfers and beautiful sunrises and sunsets. I love sitting on the balcony, just a stone's throw from the ocean. The unit is second floor, which means your balcony is covered to protect you from the sun as you enjoy every moment! The sights and sounds are as predictable as the sunrise, and yet full of surprises and wonderment every single moment! The Monarch butterflies seem to have a natural path right through my balcony and many times they will rest for a moment on the railing! It's magic! It's very common to find shark teeth and beautiful shells brought in by the tide. As the world becomes more and more stressful, I find my Destiny to be the perfect place of peace. Kure Beach, the hammock chair, a beverage and loved ones and friends. It's what makes the cares of the world go away for me!

This property was the absolute perfect getaway. Very easy checkin, unbelievably clean, beautifully decorated, great view of the ocean, and every amenity you need, especially if you love to cook. The owner was also very responsive when we did have an occasional question. We would love to stay here again, but fear a property like this does not always stay open, so a high bar has been set for the next property we visit.
Thank you so much!! Destiny is a special place and I want all my guests to know they are special as well!!! Please know you’re always welcome to return to the magic!!!
Perfect for our family of three
Beautiful space, fun decor, amazing view and everything we needed and more. Thank you for sharing your space with us, we had a wonderful week!
Thank you for your positive review! We work hard to make sure our guests are comfortable. and enjoy their time at Kure Beach. Please know you’re always welcome to return to our Destiny!
From booking to check out and then follow up, Rita was outstanding to work with. Property was everything advertised and more. Love the location and look forward to coming back in April!
Yay! Destiny once again proved herself to be all we promised! And more! Thank you so much for the review and we can’t wait to see you next Spring! Happy Holidays!
TRUTH IN ADVERTISING!
Every description about this property was entirely accurate. Anything we needed to enjoy our time on the beach was provided. We especially enjoyed our walks at low tide toward Fort Fisher. Everything was exceptionally clean and there was a varied supply of spices and seasonings in the kitchen. Colorful beach decor throughout. We enjoyed the bright balcony furniture and how close we were to the ocean. The bedroom mattress was very comfortable and there were plenty of blankets provided for those of us who are always cold. The living room was very cozy and also had soft throws around to wrap up in while lounging around. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely come back in the spring. We most highly recommend Destiny as your home away from home.
Thank you! I knew someone would appreciate my many blankets! I’m so glad you chose Destiny ! We work hard to make our guests feel appreciated, at home and relaxed! Please know you’re always welcome to return!
Fabulous property and experience
Destiny was truly a home away from home. Beautifully decorated with special touches in every room. Many beach extras—chairs, umbrellas, cart, toys and ice chest that make things more fun and comfortable when traveling across the country. Same is true for the linens, towel sets, kitchen items and extra toiletries provided. Rita provided great communication from first day signing up to rent and even checked to ensure we got home ok! I’ve never had this level of care when renting through VRBO. Destinybprovided a warm and welcoming backdrop to visiting with family. They loved coming to see us there—especially with Ft Fisher nearby. Would love to come back to this lovely place!
Thank you! We work hard to make sure Destiny is every bit and more than you expect in a vacation rental. In reality, she’s so much more. She is loved! And, we want every guest to feel loved and appreciated, relaxed and rested! Please come back.....you’re always welcome!
My daughter and I planned to visit for a day and ended up staying longer! We could not love the location more! The state park area for sunset, the walking distance to beaches and sunrise, the pool, the kind people, the view and Rita (owner) make this home a perfect stay. On top of that however, Rita goes above and beyond to make this feel like a home. Too many little touches to note - just making your trip easier and better! A must return!
What a delight to meet you face to face! You and your daughter truly made my day! Thank you for writing this wonderful review, but thank you mostly for being a perfect and cherished guests! I hope you know you’re always welcome at your home away from home!
