The Neighborhood and surrounding area

Kure Estates is a charming quiet family oriented neighborhood, (Our house is located on a cul-de-sac) Neighborhood features private beach front gazebo with parking. You will enjoy the smell of fresh blooms during the spring and summer months and the swaying palm trees all year round. Late summer brings dolphins and sea turtles to our waters and is truly a magical sight. Our Neighborhood is close to Kure Beach fishing pier, Fort Fisher (Civil War site), Drive on beach (dog friendly-All year), NC Aquarium, and a Ferry that goes to Southport. During the summer months the town presents fireworks every Thursday and family movies at the lake every Sunday...all is free.

There are many opportunities to experience the area's past at historic sites, including museums, churches, cemeteries, historic homes, battlefields and a 230 block National Register Historic District. You can also see the self-guided tour of the battleship USS North Carolina or take a cruise on the Henrietta III, North Carolina's largest riverboat. Historic Wilmington offers three themed shopping complexes: Coast Line Convention Center, Cotton Exchange and the Chandler's Wharf.

Wilmington and surrounding beaches are also considered to be Hollywoods East. See real locations and actual sets where your favorite TV Shows, movies & mini-series were shot, including Dawson's Creek, One Tree Hill, Matlock, Oprah Winfrey's: The Wedding, and Windmills of the Gods. Some of Wilmywood's biggest movies include; Sleeping With The Enemy, Blue Velvet, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Divine Secrets Of The Ya-Ya Sisterhood, Weekend At Bernie's, A Walk To Remember & Dozens & Dozens More!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This neighborhood is lovely, quiet, and close to the Carolina Beach boardwalk. There is a private beach access roughly 2 minutes from the house, and piers about a 10 minutes walk down the beach either way. Jana was extremely helpful and responsive all weekend. The house was beautiful and spacious. We had 6 guests overall, so we fit at the 6 person dining table perfectly. I would recommend booking with Jana and would book with her again in the future.

Amenities were in place, towels/utensils were well stocked. The beds were extremely comfortable, and we especially loved the outdoor day bed.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great house at Kure Beach! Just a quick walk down the street to the beach. Easy access to the beach via the Kure Estates boardwalk. House was great for a family beach week!

Owners were easy to communicate with. Recommend Freddy's for dinner and pizza from Uncle Vinny's!

Lovely pet friendly beach home

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed Thanksgiving weekend in this beautifully decorated home. It’s not often that you find such a nice property that is pet friendly. The kitchen is well equipped. The beds are very comfortable. The outdoor decks are an extension of the home and are just as beautifully decorated. The fenced in back yard is very convenient for pets. We will highly recommend this property and are planning to return as soon as possible.

PLeasant stay

  • 3 of 5

Nicely renovated house close to beach in nice subdivision. There is a parking area next to beach access with Gazebo and hose to wash off after beach. Beach is wide and expansive. Kure Beach Boardwalk and little downtown and fishing Pier 20 minute walk. Very quaint and low key. Most of restaurants and bars are typical mediocre with lots of fried selection.

I recommend house for family to spend quiet beach vacation

Great location and amenities!

  • 4 of 5

The house is spacious and has plenty amenities! I gave it 4 stars because we had to get trash bags and laundry detergent and there were no stores in walking distance. Also, we didn't receive check in instructions until after check in time. Otherwise, the house is a great stay!

Very clean and well decorated

  • 5 of 5

This home is amazing! We were there for a week for our son's wedding which was on a near by beach. This home is very well taken care of and maintained. It is in a nice quite neighborhood with very friendly neighbors. Just a short walk, about a block, to the beach. We were traveling with our two Yorkies and were joined by several family members and friends, it was perfect. Jana responded very quickly to our questions. Truly a home away from home.

Thank you for sharing your home.

Seas The Day is a great location with easy access to the beach and local attractions.

  • 4 of 5

This was an enjoyable week at Kure Beach for my family. This rental is just a short walk to the beach. The home is in need of some minor repairs/maintenance. The home was not as clean as we were accustomed to at check-in but the bedrooms were spacious and comfortable.
