About

*Ocean Dunes 1603*

Looking for a peaceful getaway to the beach? Welcome to Haven by the Sea! You will love the look and feel of this oceanfront condo. Relax on your oceanfront deck overlooking the ocean. The beach access walkway is adjacent to the building, just a few steps away. We have a large living room with a wall of glass sliders looking out onto the ocean, the vaulted ceiling provides a wonderful feeling of openness. We have a large Smart TV and plenty of comfy seating. The main level open floor plan also has a fully equipped kitchen with plenty of counter space and dining area with a large table and chairs. The master bedroom includes a king-size bed and Smart TV. The master bathroom has a wonderful glass shower with multiple spray heads!

Upstairs is a loft area with a queen size bed, desk, closet and armoire, and a full bathroom with stall shower. Parking is easy, you have two assigned covered spaces directly under the condo. In the carport we also have a wooden storage bin for your beach gear and plenty of room if you decide to bring your bikes or rent a golf cart. The beach access has an outdoor shower to rinse off and at the end of the parking lot is a charcoal grill you can use.

The beach in front of the condo is a nice white sandy beach and the Kure Beach pier is a leisurely 20-minute walk away. The condo is in the Ocean Dunes complex which includes a Rec Center with an indoor heated pool, gym, whirlpool sauna, basketball court, shuffleboard, tennis and it's open year round! In the summer we also have access to three outdoor pools, the closest is a two-minute walk away.

Enjoy Kure Beach, North Carolina! Old time family beach charm with a laid back island lifestyle. We are located on a private stretch of beach and it will be so relaxing you won't want to leave. Hearing the sounds of the waves from your bedroom will make it so easy to fall asleep and get a little relaxation!

Ocean Dunes is located toward the end of the island in a quiet area yet only 1.5 miles from the Kure Beach Pier and Boardwalk. You'll feel like you're on a private island, nestled among the live oaks. Right across the street is the Fort Fisher Civil War museum and battleground - a great place to visit for some local history. And don't forget to visit the NC Aquarium while you're there and meet Luna, the albino alligator, or ride the ferry over to Southport for a fun day of shopping.

Outdoor Pool open during the summer season only, May - September.
Ocean Dunes HOA manages the pools and rec center. We are not responsible if they are closed, nor does this qualify you for a discount/refund.

Check in is 4:00PM and check out is by 10:00AM
This is a no smoking, no pets property.
You must be at last 25 years old to enter into a rental contract
We provide the sheets, bath towels, pillows, bedspreads, and blankets.

We stayed a week at Ocean Dunes 1603 and had the best time! We didn’t know really what to expect as it is a one bedroom with a loft. We were pleasantly surprised how big it felt. It was very clean and felt like home immediately. The only callout for future guests would be the bed in the master is incredibly firm. A foam pad would make a big difference if you like a softer bed. Overall, we really enjoyed this condo, would recommend and would stay again!

We loved this house! We have two small children - 7 and almost 2, and it was PERFECT. The house was equipped with everything we would need, (when I saw the fan in the master bedroom closet, I knew these were my kind of people!). The proximity to the beach was perfect for short trips with our littles. We loved exploring Kure and Carolina Beach, and everything was such a short drive. There was NO noise to contend with, the traffic was minimal, and the beach view was perfect. We loved the indoor pool as well! Having the in-unit washer and dryer made my stay so much more comfortable as I had ZERO laundry to do once I got home! I’ve already recommended this unit to several of my friends. It was our best beach experience BY FAR!

My ONLY recommendation would be for a small vacuum, I felt so bad leaving crumbs from our littles that the broom just wouldn’t pick up!

We stayed at Ocean Dunes 1603 for a week in April. The weather was a nice 80 degrees during the day and only rained for a few minutes one afternoon. The condo is clean and well maintained. All basic cooking utensils are provided along with coffee maker and toaster. The only downside was the firmness of the beds but the couch opens to a bed that suited us well. We’re looking forward to returning next year.

We absolutely loved our time at Haven. It is every bit as beautiful as the picture show. We loved the mix of beach and antique decor. You could tell great care was put into decorating and finding unique pieces.

Listening to the ocean from the back deck, watching the sunrise and strolling the peaceful beach, was exactly what my tired soul needed.

We found some great restaurants in the area, in fact Jack Mackerels had the best oysters I've had in many years...and the shrimp was out of this world too.
We didn't want to leave, and I wish I was still there!!!

We are a family of 4 with two little kids, and stayed here for the week before 4th of July. All of us had a great time! The house was extremely clean, well maintained & equipped, and tastefully decorated. My 7 yo and I enjoyed reading every single tip in the guest manual. The deck was large enough for my beach front yoga and the deck furnitures were so neat that my husband and I were wondering where they got those! :) Coming to Kure beach each year has become a family tradition for us and we always discover something new each time. We stayed with A1 for at least 3 times and none disappointed us. Thanks for helping us making memories.

The condo is definitely in good nick, tastefully decorated with a tasteful eclectic vibe. We had an amazing week with some terrific fishing on the pier and on a charter boat. Fishing on the beach is difficult if you plan on bottom fishing as it is rocky. But once we stitched to top-side fishing we had much better luck.

This condo was by far the best!

This condo was beautifully decorated, clean, and comfortable for 2, and had a cool loft bedroom & bath for 2 more. Only suggestion for owner is to add mattress topper because the mattress is hard and we both woke up with joint pain. Nice deck with ocean view, though limited between buildings on either side. Beach was small but not crowded and allowed for proper distancing. Very close to Kure Beach Pier, Fort Fisher State Park, and Ferry to Southport. We enjoyed sunset from the Fort Fisher boating access area just past the ferry entrance.

we've stayed in Kure for most years of the past 9. We've stayed in all different OD units with several realty companies. This was one of our faves - units and companies. Very nicely decorated and furbished. Disappointingly (but understandably) the pools and rec center were closed this year. Unit had everything we needed (except a standard coffee pot - we didn't bring the needed K cups) and more. A1 was great to work with - simple check in/out, no fuss - I like that. No need to stop by the office in or out. Combo door lock made for both a convenient check-in and back & forth from the beach! Good rental policies and nice to have things like hand soap and starter paper products. Great week!

The perfect summer getaway! We loved the condo and the beautiful (and quiet Kure Beach) Our favorite restaurant was Ocean Grill, excellent burgers and fish tacos. And for stay-in meal nights, check out the Veggie Wagon! Great take-n-bake options, delish! Don't leave without planning an adventure to Shark Tooth Island, a great experience for families and kids, either by boat or kayak! We certainly hope to return again soon, thanks for such a great place to call home.

We stay at different beach and mountain locations pretty regularly. Kure beach is only a short distance from the Carolina Inn boardwalk, and also a short distance to Ft Fisher. The beach area is a bit smaller than some of the other coastal areas. The condo was great! Everything, and I mean everything was there. We used the slow cooker, and everything was available just like a regular home kitchen. King bed was a bit firm for us. Everything was clean, and more spacious than other locations. We were really surprised at the internet speed, and Roku TV’s. Great place to stay!!

A perfect spot to be! right there! on the water!!! Tho one's view is limited to directly in front, given buildings are on each side, the water is so close, and the sunrise view is perfect. The kitchen is well stocked, appliances appear brand new, and there are many personal touches which will add to your comfort. It was our first visit to the area, and tho it is off season, Kure Beach has a more quiet and less harried feeling than some other beach areas. If you are interested in Civil War history, you will not be disappointed.
