This is an awesome place to stay. It has the feel of home. Great owners that make you feel welcome and treat you like family. This is definitely the best place to stay in Kure Beach and we will be returning.

For the price of a regular hotel room, these apts offer 2 full bedrooms and a bed in the front room. A total of 3 double beds. Will easily accommodate 6 people. Oceanfront with a nice yard for the kids to play in. Nice oceanfront porch deck. Also offers a full kitchen with dishes, pots & pans. Linens are provided. Great location. Boardwalk and easy walking distance to the fishing pier. Management is great. Keeps the property clean and well maintained. It is an older property and there is only one bathroom. If you need an affordable clean place for a family to vacation where you can cook meals and a great location, you will not find a better deal. We have been several times over the past few years and will return again.

My family and I have stayed at the Blue Marlin on two separate occasions- once in June -once over the four of July week - both were wonderful. Fireworks along the beach were amazing. The Blue Marlin was perfect for my family, the ocean views were amazing waking up to first thing in the morning. The rental was very clean and well maintained. It was very simple but perfect for us. The prices were very affordable for beachfront. In the rental we stayed in, there were 3 beds, 2 bedrooms and the 3rd bed was located in the open concept kitchen/dining/living room, which is were I slept. :) one full beach themed bath. There is a front porch with with an outside shower off to the side of the house, which is nice to get the sand off your feet. You are located close enough to the pier that's within walking distance, complete with a little local restaurant, gift shop and mini arcade for kids. Definitely try the hush puppies they are amazing! There is a more busy boardwalk roughly 3 some miles in the other direction, I think it's called the Carolina boardwalk but not for sure. It has a little carnival area and multiple beach shops. There is a local donut shop there that's amazing! We get them every time we go! Kure beach is a safe, family oriented beach with small crowds. It's definitely not 'Mrtle beach or Virginia beach' which is why my family and I fell in love with this place. The owners of the Bkue Marlin were very kind and hospitable to my family and offered directions and assistance when needed. Honestly, we couldn't imagine staying anywhere else during our vacations to Kure Beach. 5/5 isn't a high enough rating:) we plan to come back this summer.

This place is moldy, old and not fit to stay in if you have any kind of allergies. I rented this over the internet for 2 nights ,owner wanted 3 but couldn't stay 3 !! so the owner found a way to get the money for 3rd night ,by lying and saying that there had been cigarette smoking in the dump,,I took keys back before leaving and ask them to come inspect the dump and was told not necessary, and then was charged 226.00 for cleaning fee's , So stay at your own risk of false charges and getting sick for mold and mildew

Response from Gilbert A, Owner at Blue Marlin Beach Lodging
Responded Sep 2, 2015
Disclosure Note: On July 13-2015, the day of your checkout, a police report was filed. There are other families expecting me to maintain our buildings for clean, safe lodging. September 2, 2015 Hello Ms. Kathy P. Back on July 13 ’15, moments prior to your checking out, we were all laughing and have a good time together! Fifteen minutes of your departure we spoke by phone, I told you of yours’s-and-our situation, yet you refused to return. I was in deep-deep fright! I had another family checking in under a two to three hours window. Your apartment was in a NON HABITABLE condition! Along with the “cleaning summary” below, the credit card company should have sent you the pictures of all the non-smoking signs inside the actual-apartment you smoked in along with the Kure Beach Police Report and witness letters outside my family. Rate pricing and daily minimums played no part in this episode.
