We have stayed here two times. The location is perfect for a Kure Beach stay. Within walking distance to the pier and a few restaurants. The breakfast basket provided in the evening is a nice twist to a "bed and breakfast". You can eat when you want and there are extra goodies in the basket perfect for snacking later in... More

Wanted to go the beach for our 25th anniversary. Kure beach was recommended as a quiet get-away. Found this place by surfing the net and reading the reviews.....the reviews sold me....let me tell you all the reviews are true. Room was perfect, daily treats were the best, service was great and the bed was so comfortable. cannot wait to go... More

Everything was perfect! This place is so clean, unique, and completely relaxing. The location couldn't be any better. We walked down the beach every evening for dinner. Freddie's was delicious and Jack Mack's was great too! We definitely will return whenever we can get away without the children. What a perfect place!

We had an awesome time......stayed on the beach in the morning, retired to the balcony for the afternoon, cocktails at 5:00, dinner in and out. Jim was really accommodating with his daily treats and phenom quiches. This was our first trip based on a friend's recommendation.....we are already planning a repeat visit.

Beautiful location,superb service and most comfortable room. Wife and I spent two nights here and could not have been more pleased from our welcome by the owner till our departure. A beautiful suite with comfortable bedding to a terrific balcony overlooking the ocean. The breakfast basket left with us each evening was delicious. Provided us with everything graciously.

This is an excellent place to stay in Kure Beach. The accommodations are clean and so comfortable. Love the Egyptian cotton sheets! Everything you need is provided for a quiet and relaxing weekend. Love having the breakfast delivered to the room the afternoon before.

Nothing else to say. Jim was HUGELY accommodating and helpful. We cannot thank him enough! Great, centrally located to all of our destinations. Clean rooms. Great views. Fast service. Great variety for breakfast. Everything you'd expect in a B&B plus more. We've already bragged to our friends and those who would listen. You really get what you pay-for at the... More

I planned a trip to the beach to celebrate my birthday and I don't think we could have found a better place to stay. Oceanfront. The boardwalk just a few steps away. A balcony to watch and listen to the waves. Restaurants within walking distance if you don't feel like driving. There are bicycles available to use but we didn't... More

Pros: -Darlings couldn't be in a more ideal location. Oceanfront, unobstructed ocean views, Kure Beach Boardwalk right in front (perfect for walking by the ocean if you're not in the mood to walk on the sand), easy walking distance from the Kure Beach Pier and several restaurants, quiet end of the island, the beach just steps away...really, the location is...

My wife and I are celebrating our 31st. I wanted a place with a Jacuzzi tub; she wanted a place by the water. When I found this place online and read what it said about itself and what others said about it, I thought, "Oh, if it could only be that good". My wife and I are here to say... More
