Gorgeous home!

  • 5 of 5

I was a little hesitant at first not having true beach front property, however, this house was perfect. Very clean and plenty of house supplies. The views were amazing on the roof top and it was a very short walk to the beach. The owner lets you use all their beach toys and chairs, etc which is not common. They were very responsive and you can tell they keep up with their home. I will be staying here again for sure!

Back at Pier Gazer

  • 5 of 5

This was our ninth trip to stay at Pier Gazer. Property was excellent as usual with nice new outside table for dining with ocean view. Fully loaded kitchen was good for cooking meals and games/wii for the kids. Property is ideal for walking to Kure dining spots and beach access. We will be back...

Very nice well kept house

The house and view were beautiful. Just wish we could have gotten the nice showers to work completely.

Owner's Response: Katelyn, We are glad you thought the house was well kept. We try to keep the house well maintained and nicely appointed. We were not aware that you had an issue with the showers. If we had known we would have assisted you. We have a relationship with Palm Air a few doors down from our house to help our guests when something unexpected occurs. I just checked with our plumber and a repair that was supposed to have been completed prior to your arrival was not. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. We hope to host you once again at Pier Gazer. Alan & Sharon Andrade

Wonderful property! Can't wait to come back next year!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful with spacious rooms with tall ceilings and lots of natural light. Beautiful modern construction, high-end fixtures, the kitchen had stainless steel appliances, double ovens and everything we needed. We loved that we did not have to pack our beach stuff as the owners have a stocked beach closet. We ate dinner at the large outdoor table and enjoyed the ocean views. We loved the two master bedrooms. The top deck was great to relax and see the ocean and enjoy the stars at night. The location was great, the beach was 50 steps from the property and it was a quiet beach area. The owners were very responsive and great to work with. We will return in the future and highly recommend this property.

Wonderful house for multi-generational family weekend

  • 5 of 5

The house is very clean, well organized, and enjoyable for the whole family. We appreciated the well stocked beach chairs, cart, and toys. Everything was in great condition and it was nice not to haul these from home. Thank you very much!
