The property is great. You cannot beat the views. All the french doors, windows, and patios on each level allow you to feel like you're on the beach but in the comfort of your home. The beach is a few steps away. The outdoor shower allows you to easily keep the rental clean throughout the duration of your stay! Would highly recommend this property!

The house is great and has plenty of room for a large family or 2-3 smaller families. The views are great from all floors but spectacular from the 2nd and third floors (the 2nd floor is where the main living and kitchen area is). Everything was very clean, kitchen was well-stock with everything you need for cooking and the beach is just steps off the back deck. Nice and quiet in January for a relaxing long weekend away. Weather is obviously on the cooler side but not perfect for walks on the beach in long sleeves.

This is a very bold statement to stay considering I feel as if I am professional when it comes to beach homes-but renting System Shutdown in Kure Beach was simply perfection. I do have to say that I am not one to rent through an agency as I’d like to go to work with me owner however in this case I decided to give it a try. Imediate response from agency after online search. Answered questions quickly. Easy process to reserve. Now on it the house. Exactly as description. House even cuter in person. This house had every single thing one would need on vacation. Dishes cookware utensils blender great size coffee mugs margarita glasses ice packs in freezer Tupperware, games blankets cozy seating inside and great outdoor decks to stare out a yeh ocean. Entire house setup made it easy for us to social distance during covid-19. Bedrooms were small but big enough. TVS is each bedroom we’re small but didn’t matter, never turned them on. Bath towels galore, beach towels In closet. Beach chairs bikes I could go on and on... oh I can’t forget about the shower wash shampoo and conditioner that was build into shower walls! They smelled like a spa flavor! The only thing I can think of that was missing was martini glasses champagne glasses and kitchen towels. Beds were on the soft side, so keep that in mind if you don’t sleep well with soft tops. I will 100 percent rent this house again and will go through ITrip again!

Great Location! Close to Kure Pier, Kure Beach Diner and Jack Mackerels which are all places you should visit. The house is a short walk from the beach on a wooden deck with shower and bench. Owners even have a chair for those that need a break to shit down and remove shoes or get a breath. Covered porch with sofa, chair, table and gas grill for lots of outdoor entertaining. The bedrooms are setup perfect for a family gathering. Lower level has bunk beds and very comfortable Queen in basement. Upper Level has 2 bedrooms with deck overlooking the ocean and 1 bedroom with full bunch beds. Master bed was very comfortable. All the linens were provided in each room with embroider towels for each person. The bedding was clean, comfy, cozy, soft and lots of extras in the closets. kitchen was well stocked with all kinds of kitchen gadgets and platters for cooking for family gathering. We were concerned about parking from the pictures but it actually worked out perfect to get 3 rows of 2 cars. One other thing I will mention the house next door is very close however it does not feel like it from the deck because it's low and deck is in front of the house so it was perfect for us. We did have to supply our own gas from the grill so keep that in mind when at the grocery store so you don't have to run back like we did .We would love to come back another time and definitely work with ITrip Vacations.

I just wanted to let you know that my family and I had a fantastic trip. The birthday celebrations and The anniversary dinner were great. It was so nice to spend time with our children, grandchildren and in laws. We enjoyed the beach and just relaxing watching the sunrise and the sunsets. I wish it was longer. System Shutdown is just what we needed for our get together. We had everything we needed and more. Thank you and I would love to go back in the future.

We had an amazing week. The house is nice and spacious. Plenty of room to spread out for a large family. The beach location is great. The kitchen could use some sort of storage for snacks and such that are brought since there is no pantry area. A large family fills up the trash cans outside really fast since the trash is only picked up on Monday’s. Some houses had multiple containers this one only had one. The house is great and we would definitely stay in it again.

This was a great house for our family of 6 adults and 2 small children. They had all of the child accessories so we didn't have to travel with anything - baby gates, pack-n-plays, a booster seat and lots of toys and games. The view and location were great. We spent most of our days on the beach or driving to nearby attractions such as Bald Head Island and Wilmington. The only thing I would have done differently is to pack a beach sail tent for shade instead of trying to use the beach umbrellas. It was mildly windy when we were there so the umbrellas kept blowing away and then it was too hot to be out long without shade or being in the water. The kitchen was well-equipped and the outdoor space was also amazing to enjoy the evenings.

If you are looking to go to the beach and forget all your troubles, this is your place. What really impressed me were the details and accessories provided. We really only needed to bring clothes and go to the grocery store for food. Beach towels, house linens, toys, high chair, beach gear, shampoo, conditioner, makeup remover wipes, etc were all provided! We worried about nothing! Also, the beach in front of the house was so secluded! It was awesome!

We are enjoying our stay at System Shutdown. Though the name of the house leaves something to be desired, the house and view do not! We have two grandparents, their two children and spouses, and two grandchildren staying here. The home is a great size for these three generations. The covered porch is great for lounging and evening dinners with a wonderful view of the ocean. We are having a great time. Oceanfront living is the best!

I cannot say enough good things about iTrip and about our stay. This house was perfect for us. It was incredibly clean, smelled great, linens and beds were top notch and super comfortable, kitchen was well stocked and there were so many helpful extras - great beach towels, sun screen, brand new pack n play, a few toys and books for kids, sound machine, high chair. The furniture was comfortable, well appointed, and clean. The location could not be better. The views are amazing, from both porches. You are steps from a gorgeous uncrowded beach that has a lifeguard for most of the day. The beach was clean, decent waves, and not overly "shelly". The neighborhood and street are clean, attractive, and quiet; close to the Kure beach pier and there are several great places to eat right nearby. We will definitely be renting this property again, it was a renters dream!

Thoroughly enjoyed our week (July 6-13) at System Shutdown. Check-in procedure was very easy and house was properly cleaned when we arrived. House was very well-equipped and had plenty of room for our group of 6 adults and 3 children. Front row location and outdoor shower were very convenient for beach activities. Suggestions for improvement: king mattress needs to be replaced and many porch/deck nails were protruding (we found a hammer and fixed most of them). On Friday we noticed small ants entering through the electrical outlets in the kitchen area, even though we tried to keep this area very clean. Would definitely rent this house again!
