“Perfect Vacation Rental”
Reviewed September 10, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We absolutely loved this place. My husband and I took our two children, ages 6 and 12 and we had a blast. The home was very clean and had everything we needed. The complex had a fantastic indoor pool and several outdoor pools we enjoyed. The owners are very friendly and easy to work with. Kure Beach is a beautiful place to visit and we will certainly be back.

“Relaxing atmosphere with spectacular views!”

Wonderful Mother's Day adventure spent in a relaxing, well located townhome near Fort Fisher. The townhome is well stocked with essentials as well as all you would need to take to the beach, which is just steps away. Although it is set back the view is spectacular and the boardwalk to the beach is right in front. The swing on the deck is a wonderful touch. The owners are easy to work with and do their best to accommodate you. This is our second year renting 1604 Ocean Dunes and I expect it will not be the last!

This condo was perfect for our family. We loved that it was just steps away from the beach and walking distance from the Rec Center. The people in the area were friendly and it was not very "touristy" area. Great for kids! The Aquarium was less than a 5 minute drive from the condo. There are plenty of near by places to eat and everything that we tried were delicious. We loved this area and this condo! Everything we needed was in the condo. The view was amazing! It was nice to hear the ocean everyday and wake up to a beautiful sunrise everyday! We want to come back here again!

Liked best: Eating on the deck, hearing and seeing the ocean and enjoying the swing!
Liked least: Could have used a little more cutlery - forks, etc., it's not on the ocean, it is set back on the property but there's nothing to impede the view. Takes a short walk around building to walkway to get to ocean or from car to the condo.

“Wonderful vacation rental!”

My family and I were visiting the beach for the first time and took a chance going with a condo unit- something we have never done before. I was a bit hesitant at first but the owners were very prompt to respond and answer any questions I had. We even had a question while vacationing and it was taken care of promptly.
Ocean Dunes is a great complex- we loved that it had outdoor as well as an indoor pool! The condo itself was well maintained and cared for even though it is an older building. The location is a quick walk down to the beach which made it nice to return back to the condo for lunch.
Kure beach itself was in great shape, lots of sand, shells, plenty of beach and not nearly as crowded as I would expect. There were quite a few more people visiting during the weekend, but the weekdays were very quiet. Although since it was more Ocean view than ocean front, there were people who would be on the walkway to the beach with was right under the condo unit. Some could find this distracting, unless you like people watching, then it could be entertaining. We enjoyed the evenings on the deck with the wonderful porch swing!
There are plenty of things to do around Kure beach- like the aquarium and the ferry ride to Fort Fisher. Food options in Kure are a little limited, we did have to plan what restraunts would be suitable for children. Overall this was a wonderful vacation spot for my family and we hope to return again soon!

We mostly just hung out in the unit when we weren't on the beach. This was actually our first real vacation as a family even though it was short. In the past we've never been able to take time off for more than one night away. This was just what we needed. We loved the quietness and had lots of fun hunting shells while the kids played in the surf. Everything was clean for us when we arrived and the space was just right for our family of four. I really appreciated that they didn't have any hidden fees or extra expenses besides a security deposit. I will definitely be looking to rent again the next time we can afford a trip. Thank you for the awesome rental!

P.S. - Ida Thai in Carolina Beach has really great food and is worth the drive if you visit. :)
