The peaceful, small town atmosphere of Kure Beach offers a holiday reminiscent of a simpler time. Spend your days fishing off the 700-ft pier (the oldest on the Atlantic Coast); or enjoy the miles of beautiful beach; lazily soaking up the sun, splashing in the waves or taking a sunset stroll.
Conveniently located in the heart of Kure Beach and .3 miles to the ocean, our home is walkable to many local shops and restaurants, as well as the Kure Beach Oceanfront Park & Pavilion (the largest public green space with fun events taking place throughout the year.) Additionally, a large park is (literally) just around the corner with tennis courts, basketball court, baseball field, playground, and frisbee golf course.
Nearby, you can check out the largest North Carolina Aquarium in the state, with a 235,000 gallon salt water tank!! Explore the South's largest civil war fort and museum at Fort-Fisher Historic Site. Or hop on the ferry and enjoy a scenic boat ride to historic Southport.
Only a few miles away, Carolina Beach is just a short drive or bike-ride. Featuring many more restaurants, a boardwalk, Saturday farmer's market, summer fairground, events/concerts and even fireworks!
And if that doesn't keep you busy - downtown Wilmington is just a 20 minute drive.
Parking for up to 2 vehicles in the driveway. Additional parking available at Joe Eakes Park - only steps away.

Originally from Maine, my husband Jeff and I are high school sweethearts with a love for travel, the ocean and our two boys (not necessarily in that order)! My husband's career in the foreign service takes us to many exciting places but our home and hearts are forever in Kure Beach.
