New Listing. This house has been completely remodeled for 2013.

Breeze into a blend of southern coastal hospitality and bold loft-inspired design. Far from ordinary, Sea la Vie offers guests a coastal experience with a fun and vibrant scene where you can mix sun, salt and surf with luxury. Enjoy a glass of vino or a cocktail on the back deck, play a game of volleyball in the back yard or just surf the internet with complimentary Wi-Fi. If cravings start to kick in, enjoy cooking in the gourmet kitchen with all new top brand LG appliances. After enjoying the beach all day, retreat to one of three guestrooms, featuring our ultra-comfortable beds with luxurious linens.

Beautiful beach cottage, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in Kure Beach staying at the Sea la Vie. It's just a 5 mins. walk to a public access beach with lifeguard. There's also parking there so if you have little ones and a bunch of beach stuff you can drive and park for free right at the public access entrance. The house was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Our dog enjoyed the backyard and visiting the dog friendly beach at Fort Fisher which is 5 mins. by car. In that same area is a wonderful aquarium.

We appreciated that the owner provided beach towels, toys and chairs.

For restaurants we had delicious meals at the Hang Ten Grill and Flaming Amy's burrito barn. Wake 'n Bake doughnuts is a must.

Book a stay at Sea la Vie -- you won't regret it!

What a Find!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family was looking for a last-minute place to stay at the Carolina Coast for the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend. Having a dog always limits us.. and given we were booking late... I was nervous to get the VRBO search results. Sea la Vie was available and was PERFECT! It is a beautifully remodeled house with a great yard for a pet and a very short walk to the beach! The house is very clean and the location is great. Just a 30-minute drive to Wilmington, and a very short drive to Ft. Fisher and the Ferry to go over to Southport (which gives you lots of options if you are looking for things other to do than go to Kure Beach). The home appliances for Sea la Vie are outstanding for the rental price point. I did read the reviews before our departure and brought extra plates and silverware but as indicated, the owner had stocked more of both after a renter mentioned there was a shortage. The only tip I would give to renters is that if you are a coffee drinker, be sure to unplug the coffee maker when finished as I don't believe the coffee machine has an automatic shut-off. If you have any questions be sure to email the owners. They are very quick to respond and are extremely friendly. We will definitely be back to stay at Sea la Vie again.

Best beach house we've ever rented!

  • 5 of 5

We love this beach house!

It was close to the beach - two short small blocks (and there is parking at beach access if you need to drive). The streets were very quiet and easy to walk on.

The house has been greatly renovated which is very nice. Great kitchen, with new appliances! Double oven was great for us. Plenty of room to store food in kitchen.

A full size washer and dryer were a great surprise and very helpful to us with 3 kids.

Has a small grass backyard. Outdoor hose and outdoor shower head (not enclosed) was very nice to rinse off.

Furniture is very nice and comfortable. The house is wonderfully painted and decorated (hardwood floors, not tons of knick knacks so felt very calm and clean). Bathrooms have open vanities which is great at beach (not musty smelling like closed vanities so I wanted to store stuff there).

We've stayed at a lot of beach houses in NC, and have to say this is the best one we've ever rented! We also really enjoyed Kure Beach and will be back for sure (is it always this quiet and not crowded during the week??!!). Next time we'll bring our bikes to ride too, as the side streets were very nice, level and not tons of cars, perfect for the kids to ride. We did bring our little dog and he liked the house too!

Had a small issue with one bedroom and contacted the owner, who was very responsive and easy to work with (all worked out fine). Great house for our family of 2 adults, 3 kids (ages 11, 8, 8) and a small dog. Plenty of room!
