We had a great visit at Seahorse. The views of the ocean are better than the photos. The home, including couches and bedding were clean. The dining chairs are upholstered and unfortunately dirty. You can tell there is a lot of wear and tear from renters which is sad to see how hard people use a vacation home. The living room furniture was new and comfortable. The upstairs living room made for spectacular ocean views and sunrises. The elevator was also a bonus for our senior dog as well as moving luggage and groceries up all the levels. We would definitely stay here again.

Our family enjoyed a get away for Thanksgiving. While the fishing was less than productive, the accommodations were very comfortable. The staff was very helpful when we had internet issues. The elevator was perfect for my elderly aunt who came with us. We brought the fixings for our turkey feast and the kitchen was equipped for our preparations. We had a good time and will consider renting this property again.

This 5 bedroom townhome was a good place for a quick family getaway... The house is not overly decorated but definitely offered all of the amenities needed for a long weekend. It was nice being in walking distance to the beach and the kitchen was nice to cook and reheat meals. The elevator was a nice addition for family members that could not walk up the stairs...

My family very much enjoyed our stay at Seahorse. Great house and location! Our dog particularly enjoyed the very convenient elevator. Loved all the themed lamps! While Seahorse is showing that it’s been loved a lot, everything was nice and clean. Fantastic and easy communication with iTrip... checked up on us regularly! Definitely recommend!

From the very beginning before booking the trip, every person we communicated with were very friendly and quick with responses. We loved the location the big open space for our family and everything was clean. There were very minor things such as wear and tear but nothing to ruin our trip over and we are so happy to have chosen this place. It was clean and affordable and the family enjoyed every moment we spent inside. Thank you for being accommodating and showing us what Kure Beach has to offer on our first visit here.

This is a comfortable home in a great location! It's close to the Kure Beach pier and close to the beach. It's a good house layout and the elevator is a big plus!! The team responded quickly to a couple of repairs needed. This is a great house for a beach vacation!

Going to the beach is always amazing. I could stay anywhere, and it would be great. What was particularly nice was the communication and promptness of itripvacations for any question or request. Would recommend staying with this group. As far as the location, very close to the beach, the elevator was super helpful in moving in and for young kids and older adults, and the house itself was very close to restaurants in Kure. Would recommend.

Seahorse is a great family vacation house. There is plenty of room so that we weren’t all on top of each other. It is close to the beach with a beautiful view of the ocean from the top deck. The management was very responsive when we called with a few minor issues and you can’t ask for more than that. The house does need a little TLC. It’s used hard during the summer months. However, that does not detract from the fact that this is a great house. I would suggest that the bedroom on the first floor have a bed put in there instead of a futon, but it all worked. Overall we had a very lovely vacation and great family time. You can’t ask for better than that.

From 74 to 7 we had a blast! The house is big and multiple levels makes us not feel as though we all have our space! Bottom floor has large one car garage, laundry room, and separate large bedroom. Second floor has three bedrooms, one with a balcony! Third floor has large kitchen, large sitting area, and a large bedroom with an on-site. Elevator goes to all floors.

Mold, mildew, spiders, crickets, and ants. The pre-cleaning of the unit was a joke. The only reason I give it average is bc location, elevator & Greg being accessible by phone. Did not hv all the necessary pans in kitchen. Furniture outdated. Some outlets with missing or damaged covers. Walls are dinged & scratched. Deck with nail hazards. I hv more pictures of pics that I took upon arrival but only attached a few.
