Pelican's Penthouse survived Florence with NO damage! The beaches did amazing and the Pier stood strong. That said, there is still a lot of damage in neighboring communities, making it difficult for staff, cleaners, etc to reach the home. We will re open for reservations Oct 20.
Welcome to "Pelican's Penthouse" Kure BeachThis beautiful ocean-view home is brand new (completed/furnished July 2017) and now ready for you and your family for short or month-long getaways this winter! We’ve tried to think of everything to make this a truly remarkable getaway. If your family includes someone who will appreciate private in-unit elevator access (and who doesn’t!) this is really a one of a kind place, literally across the street from the beach but NOT on busy Ft Fisher Blvd. Relax and enjoy the semi-private pool. Crafted with our family and friends in mind we hope you find it a very special place too!
Your home, “Pelican’s Penthouse,” truly has a “penthouse” ocean view! The home offers a fresh and casual décor, showcasing many of our favorite sea creatures and featuring works by local artists. For those who wonder why would one EVER want carpet at the beach, the lower floor is a beachy porcelain plank, and the top two floors are all real wood, which is great for anyone who has allergies!
Enjoy the pool with lovely shallow wading area, fountains and gas grill shared with only a few neighbors in a small private community.
Kure Beach is Carolina Beach’s quieter neighbor and is full of low key family friendly options. Together they are known as “Pleasure Island.” Nearby Fort Fisher is the #1 Historic Site in North Carolina, now boasting NC’s first underwater historical park! Check out the Aquarium or the unique opportunity to drive on the beach at Fort Fisher. You can fish, put in kayaks nearby, or just walk right across the street to relax at the beach. The historic Kure Beach Pier has something for everyone: fishing, gifts, art and games. Nearby are many casual and tasty restaurants. A short ride and you are in Carolina Beach, checking out the newly renovated boardwalk, fireworks and free outdoor movies weekly. Kure Beach is also only 25 minutes from ILM Wilmington Airport, and downtown Wilmington, NC is “America’s Best Riverfront” according to USA Today and a charming small city with theaters, creative arts, movie and TV filming sites, and great bars and restaurants.
The fully equipped kitchen offers side by side fridge with ice maker and filtered ice water, microwave, coffee maker, and all the other conveniences. Enjoy casual in-kitchen dining (for 4), seating at the bar (4) or the spacious dining table (seating 10). Inside, you will find all you need to prepare a great meal or menus from local restaurants for take out! Starter coffee packs are even included!
Enjoy the reverse floorplan (living room on top floor) and the 200 sq foot deck is the place to capture the view! Offering dining for six plus relaxing chairs, the ocean view porch swing is a MUST especially at sunset. In the living room you will find the 65” HDTV and plenty of comfortable seating, but also quiet spots to enjoy the selection of books, magazines and games (old fashioned ones!) provided. You have to try NC Opoly!

The 2nd foor master even has its own “wine deck” for a couple’s getaway and “rainforest” shower head, and deluxe 42" Sony TV. Both feature beautiful tiled walk-in showers and spacious closets (face it, don’t you always bring more to the beach than you need!) and en-suite baths.
