Awesome place for an awesome price!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Kure Beach and we couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay. We were in town for our daughter's engagement photos and had lots of questions but Mr. Buchanan couldn't have been any more helpful in answering each and every one. One of the places we wanted to do pictures was Fort Fisher so it was in the perfect location. There were 8 of us and it was also the perfect size for us. Thank you Mr. Buchanan for a wonderful place to stay and all of your helpfulness. You made our engagement trip the best experience ever!

Cute condo, nice location, good price

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here as a group of three friends looking for a nice, quiet place near the beach. The condo is a great size, with three ample bedrooms and plenty of common space, and it's nicely decorated. We liked being right across the street from the beach, and within a reasonable drive to the amenities of Kure Beach and Carolina Beach. We didn't realize that it's standard practice to bring linens, so we found ourselves without sheets and towels initially, but Karl was very responsive and came right over to fix the problem (and also to get the wi-fi going, which worked well after that). The bonus was that he also gave us some good local recommendations, which we appreciated. We'd recommend this rental if you want to stay at the quiet end of the beach for a very good price.

Great Location, Pools, and beach access

  • 5 of 5

Great little condo. Sleeps 4 dulls and 2 kids very nicely. Across the street from beach with private access. Nice outdoor pool and indoor pool. Plenty of other stuff to keep you busy if stay off the beach for some reason. Only two slight negatives, no WiFi with 6 mobile devices on data plans and the cell signal was poor in the building and one of the living room couches was pretty uncomfortable so made watching a little late night TV for the family challenging on the one TV. But for the value, beach access, complex amenities, location to Fort Fisher, Carolina Beach and boardwalk and I can go on and on, you cannot beat it. It was easily our best family vacation because how awesome Kure and Carolina beach are and this condo was a great part of it. Working with Karl was also great and we arrived a little early and he let us drop out stuff off and all in all could not ask for much more

Location! Location! Location!

  • 5 of 5

We only stayed for an abbreviated Memorial Day Weekend... but had a blast at Karl's condo! I'm from Connecticut and my sisters live in Chapel Hill, and every MDW we go to the beach (My mom and step-father reside in Wilmington) for a little family get together. This year, we chose Karl's place for the proximity to the beach and amentities provided at Ocean Dunes. What a great buy!! My step-father has COPD, so the elevator and simple walk across the street to the beach made it comfortable for him to enjoy everything with the rest of the family - something no other location we have found so far has offered. There was plenty of room for our guests (My husband and I, my 2 sisters, and on one night, 2 of the kids stayed on the pull out couch). We cooked breakfast every morning, and were able to pack up a lunch in a cooler... then returned to the condo and grilled by the pool every night for dinner! Much cheaper and easier than having to go out all the time! Can't recommend Karl enough - very easy to work with (even when I misunderstood checkout time - thanks for working with us!) and an overall nice guy!

Fantastic Condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Karl's condo on short notice. He was very helpful, friendly. We were very pleased with the condo itself...we had a 7 yr old and a 3 yr old...we walked to the beach everyday.....very close for them. The other amenities were great....walked each time.

He had everything we needed to cook and serve meals....which we usually do because of the young kids.

Thanks Karl for working with us.
