The space

Our home is for the beach lovers who don't feel the need to pay the beach front prices! With a quick 2 minute Car drive or 15 minute walk your toes are in the sand and you are soaking up the sun! We have a full kitchen that has everything needed for our self catering guests and a large porch and rear deck to relax and enjoy.

When you walk into the house you are greeted with Bright colors and a tranquil atmosphere. You almost feel like you took a flight down to the Caribbean.

The living room has plenty of space to relax, two couches to be exact. There is a 37" Flat Screen with an Apple TV ready to give you many TV and movie options. There are also plenty of DVD's to choose from and some fun board games to enjoy.

Just off the living room will be the very spacious and WELL EQUIPT kitchen. It will have everything you need to enjoy your stay. Blenders to make Smoothies, Pans to cook up some good eats and enough dishes and glassware to serve up an army! You will have all of the small appliances you need, especially the Coffee maker. There is a kitchen table that will seat six plus some extra space at the counter bar. Just through the kitchen you will find a Pantry room that has the washer and dryer.

To the right of the living room is the master suite. Plenty of space with a large bathroom, vaulted ceiling with fan, and a queen bed. There will be plenty of dresser space, a large walk in closet, TV and DVD player you can watch from your comfy Queen bed.

To the left of the living room will be the two other bedrooms. The second Bedroom (Green Room) has a Queen Bed, dresser, closet, fan and TV. The 3rd bedroom is our SURFER SUITE with 2 twin beds- great for kids! All three bedrooms have ceiling fans and a TV. The second bathroom is shared between these two bedrooms.

There is PLENTY of outdoor space to relax. Off the front of the house we have a large covered Porch which is great any time of day, especially for your cup of coffee in the AM. Off the back of the house we have a large deck with outdoor table and chairs. Enjoy the day, grill some food and watch the sunset! There are plenty of outdoor chairs to use and there is a small Fire Pit in the nicely fenced back yard.

Now for the reason you came, THE BEACH! You will have easy access to any of the 60+ Beach accesses. Our house is located an easy 2 minute car ride, 5 minute bike ride or 15 minute walk from the closest access down Middleton. Just down the street is a local Pantry with all the necessities and a large ice machine that will fill your cooler for $2! Make sure you look through our Guidebook on AirBnB and the Guest Book in the house to see all the fun activities to do, places to eat and entertainment to enjoy during your trip!

We hope you enjoy Casa Pura Vida as much as we do. Come relax by the sea and let comfortable accommodations refresh you. If you enjoy your stay at our house, please leave us positive feedback. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

The neighborhood

Casa Pura Vida is located just off Middleton and the new bridge on NE 1st Street. The location provides easy beach access via a 15 minute walk or 2 minute car ride with close visitor parking and beach access.

Your getaway home is on a quiet residential street with a lot of neighborhood streets for walking, jogging, or biking. The beach is an easy 15 minute walk and no high-rise hotels in sight. Nearby Yacht Drive offers lovely views of the Intercoastal Waterway while walking or biking.

With over 10 miles of pristine beaches, there is plenty of room to relax by the ocean. You are only a 5 minute drive to great local restaurants and nightlife and about a 15 minute drive to Southport, the home to many great shops and unsurpassed cuisine. Take a ferry ride over to Bald Head Island for a day of exploring and even check out Ol' Baldie!

House was cleaner than most beach houses. The location was good, only a short walk to the beach. We definitely enjoyed having the Apple TV at night.

Steven's place was really great! We loved how close it was to the beach & having all the kitchen amenities to make breakfast, lunch & dinner. He had everything from a blender to a garlic press! It was great that those were available as we definitely used them! Also enjoyed all the board games and Netfilx at the end of the day to enjoy with the family. Neighborhood was quiet & area was very calm & relaxing. Exactly what we needed! Thank you for hosting us!

Loved the location and the house was great for our 2 couples and 3 kids. Just big enough and close to everything. Steven was great and very responsive when I was heading down to check in and then we didn't need him after that because everything was so painless. Would absolutely stay again and recommend to a friend.

This house was everything we wanted and more! It's located on a quiet street but still a 2min drive to the beach. My husband and I would go paddle boarding at 6am and come back to cook breakfast -talk about a feast! Full kitchen helped us save tons and be able to splurge on activities. Steven is very hospitable and responsive. Great host and a great house! Oak island is a hidden gem with quiet beautiful beaches. Perfect for couples and families looking to get away.

We had a wonderful stay at this home. Really enjoyed the shaded front yard in our hammocks we brought along and the spacious front porch in the evenings. It is well stocked with supplies that you would not find at a normal rental property. Fast internet and Apple TV are yet another plus.

We really enjoyed our stay. We were 4 adults and 2 children and the space was perfect. The dining table in the kitchen was perfect for family meals and it never felt crowded. The property was as described and was VERY close to the beach and within a good distance from the super market and shops. Steven's welcome instructions was timely and clear and he was extremely responsive in the rare instances when we had questions. A great place to vacation and a great host - I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in a vacation to break away from the husstle and bustle of everyday life!

I am and adventure loving person and grew up going to the beach. I love to travel and most of all surf. I don't get to Surf as much as I like due to my growing family but we all enjoy going to the beach when we can!
