"Dune Our Thing" – Suite 3 is a first floor suite managed by Dale and Salt Water Real Estate and is a stellar location to relax and unwind ALL year round! This unit sits just two blocks back from fun in the sun at the beach and from Down Town Kure Beach!
The suite is located in the heart of Kure Beach and walking distance to downtown and all of its attractions. The location is a short drive from the Carolina Beach Boardwalk, restaurants, and local shops (don't forget Britt's Famous Donuts)! If you like adventures, the marina is also there where you can take an offshore fishing trip or party boat out for a sunset sail. Camping more your thing? Bring the 4X4 and drive (and camp) on the beach at Freeman Park, located on the North End of the island (Carolina Beach). The Carolina Beach Lake is nearby, hosting the Farmer’s Market every Saturday, FIREWORKS every Thursday, and summer outdoor movies on Sunday (on a large inflatable screen in the middle of the lake!)
You can also stay in Kure Beach and fish directly off their fishing pier, have one of the best pork chops on earth at Freddie’s, or enjoy their own Farmer’s Markets, Concerts, and other events. The Aquarium at Fort Fisher, numerous historic sites, a public boat launch, and the ferry over to Southport are right down the road! We welcome you to sit back, relax and enjoy yourselves because that's exactly what the beach is for!
These suites are a mixture of the original “period” construction and old world charm, with a kiss of shabby-chic modernity and todays technology because hey, there’s got to be something for everyone! Each suite has its own distinct traits, quirks, and characteristics.
The entry to this 2 bedroom, 1 bath suite opens up into a newly furnished family room combined with an open dining area and fully equipped kitchen (stove+oven, refrigerator). The kitchen is stocked will all of the basic cooking and dining utensils one can expect (plates, bowls, cups, silverware, etc.). In addition, there is a microwave, toaster, coffer maker and blender ready to help make yourself at home (while on Vacay!). Courtesy organic soap, shampoo, and lotion are left in the bathroom of each suite as well as ONE starter roll of TP and ONE garbage bag.
Most bedroom beds (including bunks) Including the TWO QUEEN beds and ONE FULL/TWIN bunk bed consists of either a plush luxury mattress or a new encased 8” memory foam/cooling gel composition mattress because we want all of our guests to be comfortable when it comes time to recharge. Any pullout couches that can fit/support a memory foam pad are also accommodated with such! (Always bear in mind, although comfortable, a pullout couch/futon for a longer-term tenant may/may not provide ideal support!) Remember, linens are NOT provided in order to keep our rates low. You can bring them from home with you, buy them (Wal-Mart in Wilmington for example), or rent them (LOWTIDE Linens & Rentals, or another such vendor). Mention that you are staying with SALT WATER REAL ESTATE and receive an additional 10% off of any rented items!
There is a smart TV in each suite (with approx. 25 channels through Charter Spectrum cable) along with a WIFI computer connection for when it's time to sit back and enjoy some movies or shows after a long day at the beach!
We equip each suite with its own books, games, and misc. accessories to help cover the basis for our guests to enjoy themselves in rain or shine. Sometimes however, these items are removed from the suite and not replaced and we do not realize it (tsk tsk!). If you notice something we’ve bragged about missing please let us know!!!
The outdoor shower is off to the left side of the building to help keep the stand outside on the beach!
The YARD: The yard is intended for both units to be able to congregate, BBQ, play, and have a blast. Please do NOT let your pets loose (suite 1). Feel free to utilize the front yard, side yard, or any number of amazing neighborhood walks to help your furry son or daughter relieve themselves (pup waste bags ARE provided on site!)
The SUITE: Guests have full access to their own private SUITE (never shared) along with a respective deck, patio, or balcony. Each suite can vary slightly in archetype but what’s private for each guest or is a common area for all to share IS easily recognizable.
PARKING: Each guest will have access to (1) ONE parking space.
(the space can fit two SMALLER vehicles front to back) . For additional spaces, please refer to the town of KB for the most up to date recommendations!
Other things to note
-ALL suites are non-smoking (including vaping) and a heavy cleaning/repair charge WILL result if not adhered to.
-Linens (sheets/towels) are *NOT* part of the suite rental. Please refer to the bedding chart in the profile for respective bed sizes and plan accordingly. We partner with “Low Tide Linens and Rentals” for any guests looking to rent a linen package (sheet sets, towels, etc.) as opposed to bringing or buying your own. ***Please mention you are a guest with "Salt Water Real Estate" for an additional 10% off!*** Although the hyper link will be blocked by this site, a simple web search can yield their contact information. They will deliver directly into the suite in advance of your stay if needed!
-Quiet(er) hours begin at 9:00pm EST. We host many families of all ages so we ask all our guests to be considerate, and enjoy the heck out of yourselves!
-NO BBQ’ing on ANY decks or porches. This is a huge fire hazard and is fineable (along with removing smoke/Co2 alarms). We work extremely hard to keep all of our guests safe, and sometimes that takes teamwork!
