About Edith Taylor

We are Rick and Edith Taylor. We have lived in Wilmington, NC for more than 20 years. We are both NC natives. We have always thoroughly enjoyed our time spent on the beach. We recently decided to purchase a home at Kure Beach for us to enjoy and share with our families and potential renters like you.

Edith Taylor purchased this house in 2015

Why Edith Taylor chose Kure Beach

It's close proximity to the beach and the privacy of being a single family residence. Its spacious floor plan makes it a desirable place to hang out and spend time with family and friends.

What makes this house unique

The two porches on the house make the most relaxing atmosphere. The front porch offers a great place to gather and spend time together, while the screened-in back porch offers a great place to play board games and just relax. Modern amenities are still offered with three televisions, cable, as well as wireless access.

Comfortable, Clean and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

We loved the neighborhood for walks, the quick walk to the beach, perfect area for a bike ride and the ferry and visit to Southport is a good day trip to let your sunburn cool! There was two of us (40's) and my pup. We were very comfortable at the house.

I would recommend this house to anyone. The washer and dryer were a plus. The house is clean. This house would be perfect for

Edith was friendly and welcoming with her smile. I know if we needed anything she was just a call away.

Tranquil beach home

  • 5 of 5

Being two short blocks to the beach highlighted our stay at The Crab House. We enjoyed this spacious home's close proximity to the beautiful quiet beach and lively Kure Beach Pier with its quaint shopping and restaurant amenities. The home is tastefully decorated with comfortable beach-themed furnishings. The beds are so comfortable and linens are conveniently provided. Bathrooms are modern and spacious. Having the washer/dryer in the home is a plus for a longer stay. The kitchen is huge with seating for four at the breakfast bar. The owners provided everything one could want including a griddle and lobster pot. Having our dog with us was also a plus. The neighborhood is friendly for long dog walks along the protected land that is one block from this home. There is also a dog park and dog friendly restaurants nearby. For those who like to take in the sights besides enjoying long days on the beach, you can ride your bike to Ft Fisher or take the ferry over to Oak Island. You can also visit Wilmington with its lovely downtown, which is only a 15-20 minute drive. The owner is wonderful. She met us at the property and showed us all the amenities of the home. All in all, this home has everything and is conveniently located to many attractions in this area. We are looking forward to our resturn in the future.

We visited the Crab shack for a long weekend, and it was just PERFECT!! and It is far from a shack !! Plenty of bedrooms, with ample beds for our group. The home was immaculate and nicely decorated. It was the best-equipped rental I have ever seen. It truly has anything and everything you will ever need. It is on a corner lot and provides an unexpected and amazing water view from the large front deck that extends the length of the house (we lived on the deck). The screen porch on the back of the home is an excellent place to eat meals and catch a break from the sun. A short and easy walk to the water's edge of the beach. The neighbors are friendly and offered additional tips for touring and restaurants. Freddie's Italian Restaurant at Kure Pier is fantastic don't miss it while visiting.You are very close to Kure Beach, Carolina Beach, Fort Fisher and Wilmington; the location will provide all the activity you need while experiencing the laid back and relaxed vibe of the beach to allow you to unwind and decompress from your daily life. We will defiantly come again and look forward to the return visit.

Crab House- our home away from home!

The crab house is our favorite place to vacation as a family! Great location to the public beach access. Plenty of space to accommodate our family of 4 plus additional family/friends. I would highly recommend!

Wonderful House at Kure Beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our teenage daughter and a few of her friends stayed in this lovely home for 4 nights during August. We were also able to bring along our furry friends and the house was perfect for them b/c of the fenced in area where they could roam around freely without having to be on a leash. The house was very clean and decorated so nice. And it was such a short walk to the beach. We will definitely be staying there again in the future.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here and had a great time in this spacious and well maintained house. The beach was just a short walk away. We were able to bring our pets along and there was a nice enclosure for them to hang out while we were away at the beach. We will definitely stay here again. Thanks!

Car: recommended

This charming house is located in the heart of Kure Beach. You can easily walk to the beach within a few minutes. FREE public parking is also provided at both beach accesses right down the street. The beach pier is very close by and provides various forms of entertainment and dining options as well. The State Aquarium at Ft. Fisher and Fort Fisher State Historic Site (Civil War Battlefield & National Historic Landmark) are located about a mile down the road, which provides loads of family entertainment. The ferry allows you to venture over to Southport (with your car) and enjoy the atmosphere of a small, quaint historic town loved by the film industry as well. The city of Wilmington is just across the bridge from Kure Beach and provides even more options for shopping, dining and entertainment. Wilmington's downtown area is definitely one to spend the day at when needing a break from all the wonderful sunshine. During the summertime, the adjacent beach (Carolina Beach) has a fun-filled carnival filled with rides, games and all the cotton candy, candy apples, and the like that you can eat. The outdoor activities that this cumulative area offers makes your vacation possibilities endless and your stay complete.
