About the property


Oceanfront beach cottage. Completely remodeled in 2012. Never before rented!!! Brand new appliances. All new porch furniture. Quality bedding. A romantic getaway where you dreams can come true! FESTIVE DECOR! PANORAMIC VIEW! Our view is described as breathtaking, unbelievable, spectacular, and peaceful.

Treat yourself to the perfect beach getaway in a wonderful oceanfront cottage. Located a few steps away from the warm sand, this three bedroom house is well equipped for all your vacation needs.

The first floor’s master suite, with attached tropical full bath, features a plush king sized bed and oceanfront views. Following the wooden stairs to the second floor you will find the Ralph Lauren suite featuring a full bed with a secret trundle and TV hideaway. An adjoining full bathroom connects to the Palm guest room equipped with three twin beds. Both rooms claim beautiful panoramic oceanfront views to enjoy throughout your stay. The calming sound of the night waves are sure to lull you away into a peaceful night’s slumber or provide the perfect background noise for a satisfying bubble bath.

Start your mornings with a breathtaking view of the Atlantic Ocean as you walk out onto the porch with fresh coffee. Take a moment to enjoy the breeze in one of the rocking chairs, enjoy your breakfast in the porches’ eating nook, or take a drift away with a book on the swinging hammock.

Feel like satisfying your pallete? Step into the kitchen, equipped with all new appliances, and prepare your fresh catch from the pier. Pair it with your favorite wine and light some candles for a romantic evening. For a quick and tasty lunch, fry up some bacon for a flavorful BLT and grab a beach umbrella for a picnic on the sand. Friends and family can enjoy the fragrant smells of cooking while they wait in the living room and chat to the chef through the durchreiche.

This wonderful cottage comfortably sleeps six people. Don’t worry about parking; there is more than enough space for five cars or more! The large fenced in back yard only adds to this house’s charm, its wooden pathway beckoning you to the door. MoonSpinner Cottage is not only charming and elegant, but is both beach and oceanfront, with a small, quaint nicely maintained boardwalk right there in front of the house for your use to enjoy a casual stroll and see all of the beach sights and downtown Kure Beach attractions. All considerations have been made to provide for your ultimate comfort and enjoyment.

With a plethora of activities waiting, you’re sure to discover new thrills during your stay at Kure Beach. Take a short walk to the pier and try your hand at fishing or stop at one of the local restaurants for some fresh seafood. Try to spot local wildlife with an island bike tour or walk through the nearby State Park. Discover your adventurous side while kayaking over ocean waves or four-wheeling on the beaches’ North End. Beginners and experts can enjoy the breeze while flying a kite or joining one of the volleyball games on the beach. Whether your interests are fishing, beach combing, shopping, eating, surfing, or simply doing nothing at all, Kure Beach will have you mesmerized.

About Debbie Snyder

We are a local family from Wilmington, North Carolina. Our family consists of my Husband, myself, and our loving son who is currently attending UNC-Chapel Hill. Ever since we moved here in the early 1980's it had been a dream to own a beach house to call our own, and to make it our own. As the avid beach-goers that we are, this beautiful residence served the perfect function of being our stepping stone to the warm sands and and the cool breezes of our favorite NC beach. With our son moving out and exhaust from 11 years of meticulous care, we figured we be a little less selfish and share the beautiful house to others when we couldn't be there.

Debbie Snyder purchased this house in 2000

Why Debbie Snyder chose Coastal North Carolina

Location. Location. Location.

We always knew we had wanted a beach house that was not huge, but not small. After carefully searching throughout the Kure Beach area for several years, we stumbled across this house and made it a family project to completely restore and remodel it from the ground up. Its proximity to the beach, exclusive location, and enormous back yard made the decision easy for us to make. The previous owner mentioned stories of its resilience against Hurricane Hazel in 1954 and claiming it was one of the few survivors, making its persistence even more appealing. At the time of the purchase it was no more than a beat-up cottage that was in dire need of some appreciation from its owner, a task we were willing to take on. 11 years later after refinishing all of the wood, installation of brand new appliances, complete redecoration, addition of a front yard, backyard shed, landscaping, and hours upon hours of manual labor improvements we were happy to call it our own. There is no doubt you will enjoy it as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

Many of our favorite benefits of the house include:

...10 second walk to the beach

...1 minute walk to the pier/fishing/restaurants/shopping

...front porch relaxation (hammock, rocking chairs, etc.)

...Lifeguard stand right in front of our beach location

...Aesthetic landscaping that complements wonderful view

...interior ergonomics that allow a common living space, but separate rooms that allow different friends to enjoy their own section of the house.

...Enormous back yard for parking, cookouts, throwing the football, or laying out and playing music.

.... Enclosed Outdoor Shower with Hot & Cold water for your convenience when you are coming back from a hot day on the beach.

...The uniqueness of each room's theme.

...And everything else

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family had an awesome vacation at MoonSpinner Cottage. This was our second visit and plan on making a yearly trip at this point. Absolutely love the huge front porch and hammock. Everything was perfect- a great beach, lovely views from every room, a fully stocked kitchen that allowed us to cook whatever we wanted, and it was easy walking distance to all of the restaurants when we felt like relaxing. Those memories of mornings with coffee and evenings with wine on the front porch will have to keep us going until we return next year. Many thanks to the owner for all the TLC given to making this such a wonderful trip.

A gem

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is so perfect for a beach get-a-way! Very comfortable, with everything you need for your visit. We had an infant with us, and found the washer and dryer simplified life greatly. The boardwalk takes you down to the pier, where there are several small places to have a bite to eat or a drink. Life is not so busy in Kure Beach - what a great place to relax. The owner was very responsive and helpful.

No better place for R & R

  • 5 of 5

We love this beach house and highly recommend it!! This was our second year coming for a week to Kure Beach and staying at Moon Spinner Cottage. This place is a gem!. The house is super clean , cozy, and comfortable. If feels like home when you enter. The beds are comfortable, the front porch can't be beat for comfort, relaxation, and the view!! The outdoor shower is the bomb! Close access to the beach, a place to put our bikes, and off street parking help make it the perfect accommodations for our group of 4 adults and 2 teenagers. We made good use of the grill (Try Blackburns for great fresh fish!). There is plenty to do for those who like to explore. The house is in a great location too. The owner Debbie has put a lot of TLC into this rental. She is a very gracious owner who cares about your stay and is a wealth of information about the best place for donuts, fresh fish, pizza, etc! You will not be disappointed!! We will be back!

most comfortable house at the beach with an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Debbie is very easy to work with and is super nice! Second, the view! You can't beat the sunrise every morning from your porch, hearing the ocean waves at night from your bedroom, the spacious and comfortable rooms, the clean and cozy feeling of home, and my favorite - the front porch. Every morning with our coffee, every afternoon in the hammock to drift off to sleep or read and every night people and wave watching. And a two minute walk to beach - you can't beat it! Quiet little oasis in the middle of the island - just the best and we are hoping to return next year!

Porch and ocean view are AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

What a relaxing feel this cottage has, and it has everything you could ever need while

away on your vacation. The owner has really made it quite cozy and she even leaves you a little "goodie basket" of treats. The location is walkable to EVERYTHING you would want to do in Kure Beach like great restaurants and the fishing pier (which by the way does not charge you to walk out and watch the fishing as some piers in NC do). So you can always find something to do within walking distance. I must also brag about the cleanliness of the place, it was spotless. We loved it!

Relaxing and Cozy Beach Stay

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our long weekend at Moon Spinner's. We loved the comfort and coziness of the house on the ocean front. It was March and the weather was warm during the day and cool at night. It was wonderful to be able to hear the ocean the whole time we were there. I especially loved being able to choose being able to walk on the beach or on board walk. We walked a lot! It was nice to be able to walk down to Freddie's or Jack Mackerel's for dinner and/or out onto the pier to just see the sights (we don't fish). Just down the road a couple of miles is Fort Fisher which is interesting...I highly recommend the ferry ride to the quaint little town of South Port. We really enjoyed a winery there and we had lunch on the water there at the Yacht Basin.

The house had everything we needed. We liked the full kitchen. We cooked out one evening on the grill out back. We were also appreciative of the snack basket on the kitchen table...because we were actually hungry when we first got there. We found the location very quiet and relaxing. Thank you for a lovely time.
