About the property


Oceanfront beach cottage. Completely remodeled in 2012. Never before rented!!! Brand new appliances. Hammock and Hi-Speed WiFi. 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 Kure Beach

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.

Fabulous vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We spent Thanksgiving week here with our family and we had a perfect visit. The house was so comfortable, the porch was everything everyone else said it would be! The kitchen had everything we needed to make our Thanksgiving feast! Debbie was friendly and welcoming. It was fun to walk the boardwalk to the pier each day to see what people were catching. This was a great place to relax and spend time with our family. Thanks!!!

The best porch ever!

  • 5 of 5

This was our sixth stay at Moonspinner and it always feels like home. The furnishings feel like home and not a rental. We love the location with the boardwalk that takes us to Kure Pier or a one minuet walk to the beach.

The porch is where to be for every sunrise, for bird watching , and watching the water change colors. We miss it when we are gone and can't wait for the next visit.

This was our second time staying at Moon Spinner Cottage, and it was once again wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

Moon Spinner Cottage is truly a magical spot. It feels like you are home the minute you walk in the door. We spent many hours on the front porch in rocking chairs, and reading in the hammock. The view is something you never grow tired of! The entire home is comfortable, and the kitchen is so well appointed that you really don't need to bring anything with you. Kure Beach is such a friendly place.

The front porch says it all!

  • 5 of 5

MoonSpinner Cottage is by far the best property we have rented in Kure Beach. We loved everything about the house. It was comfortable and convenient to everything. When we weren't on the beach, we spent time on the porch in the rockers and hammock. This house is simply conducive to the art of relaxation. The owner is wonderful to work with and she pays attention to detail so that your stay is enjoyable. We will definitely rent this property again.
