“Great vacation!”

Reviewed 24 Jul 2016

This was a great house matching the pictures and description exactly! We had three families/10 people on our vacation, and had such a great time at this house! The beach property is amazing! Having the living space at the very top was definitely different, but the views cannot be matched anywhere else...well worth the climbs back and forth from beach to kitchen or vice versa-- great exercise for all of us! We really enjoyed our week and would definitely go back to this same house. Kure Beach was also a surprisingly nice community. We liked having Carolina Beach close, but also being slightly out of that area and in our own safer, quieter place. Some things we also did this week: attended a musical at Thalian Hall in Wilmington, Picked up breakfast at world-famous Brit's Donuts twice -- yum!, Rented a Pontoon for a day on the intercoastal -- fun!, Found a bunch of Megladon shark teeth right on our very own beach, Grilled out on the deck, Played games on our spacious ktichen table, Watched some TV in our rooms and group living area, Attended and really enjoyed a local Art Fair, and more! Great week, great house, highly recommend!
