The house: The view from the deck is spectacular and the water pressure in the shower is excellent, unfortunately those are the only nice things I can say. The house is poorly maintained. The laundry room was absolutely disgusting, each time I opened the door and turned on the light I had to step out and wait for the cockroaches to scurry. Maintenance came in unannounced to fix a bed that we did not know needed fixed. The man used a key to get in and scared my mother who was home alone.
Kure Beach area: The area is so packed with houses and businesses that parking is an issue. There was a shooting at a business next to the pier while we were there (our rental was 1/2 mile from the pier).
