Went 5-31-14 was a great view, clean room, was well worth the money, water was hot, appliances all worked, bed was comfortable, and it was quiet, right on the beach couldn't ask for anything more, will be back next year.

Friendly staff, right on the beach, primarily occupied by fishermen as it is 100 feet from the pier. The beds and bedding need upgraded. It's a pretty good value at < $100 per night with a full kitchen.

People have to remember that upscale is up the street and average accommodations here are basic sleeping quarters because I mind paying the big $$$ for a... More

Again THANKS to Trent and all of his staff we had another great stay at South Wind. From the front desk to the house keeping. You could not ask for a better location. the room is very clean and the house keeping kept everything perfect. Don't miss out on a great place to stay at Kure Beach. Thanks Trent, Josh... More
