Kure Beach, nc

We are planning a family wedding in July 2013 in wilmington,nc. Looking for beach rentals in Kure Beach. Any info about the area would be helpful. Is there another area that someone would recommend? This area seems to be the closest dirve time to Wilmington. Any realtors that you would recommend? Thanks for any help that you can give us.

Not sure what you mean by "This area seems to be the closest drive time to Wilmington" ? The closest beach?? Wrightsville Beach is much closer. Might want to check it out. Carolina Beach is a couple of miles closer than Kure actually. (The Carolina/Kure Beach is very nice no doubt...I'm just telling you what is closer) We stayed in Kure one year...and used Bullard Realty (we stayed in Ocean Dunes, very nice)

Ocean Dunes is a very nice complex. We are coming to Kure Beach next weekend for a two week stay, and this will be our second time staying in Ocean Dunes. We rent from United Beach Vacations and I highly recommend them. Wrightsville Beach is a much more expensive beach town than Kure. Carolina Beach, while on the same island as Kure, is a little more "campy" in my opinion. Kure is a town that does not have a single highrise or big hotel. Instead, it is all beautiful beach houses and townhouses, and a very quiet area. It's about a 20 minute drive from Wilmington, so very close and convenient.

Good luck with your planning!

Thank you both for the info...This gives us lots to consider. Also ideas about rentals companies. We were just thinking about the drive time to Wilmington, but also were going to be spending the week at the beach so wanted to find out the best beach to stay at. Thanks again...We need all the help we can get with this one!!!

Has anyone used Victory Reservatons or Carolina Beach Realty? They seem to have some beautiful house for rent in this area. I'm looking for large beach homes to rent. Thanks

We have used Victory in the past with good results. For the past two years we have rented through United Beach Vacations. I highly recommend them. Very professional, responsive, etc.
