"We were not advised or compensated by Intracoastal that the roof was to be replaced. For 2 1/2 days, we could not use our parking spot,the deck overlooking the ocean or even stay in the condo due to the constant pounding and running of a generator/compressor. Tried to contact Intracoastal and got no response. The condo was clean but the furniture was dated and in disrepair. The bed mattress was nasty. Two of our children and their families rented from Bryant Real Estate and had great service. Bryant even sent someone out to clean the roofing nails off their deck and made sure they were ok. I guess Intracoastal got their money and did not care."

"Was not happy to learn that Ocean Dunes 104 was third floor--not first floor as I had been led to believe. Was unable to change. However, the property was nice, but needs some improvements: a) oven had not been cleaned, burners had to be cleaned before using, b) shelf in overhead cabinet needs support - sagging, c) pool was cloudy with alot of sand on bottom, d) deck furniture is the cheap plastic type and the sun has weakened it further, e) storm door would not close properly--had to 'jam' it to keep it closed when thunderstorms approached, f) dishwasher had a tendency to unlock in the middle of a cycle, come to a stop, and did not rinse very well. Overall, the property was nice and just needs some minor repairs/updates. the location was great and depending on the rest of the family, might stay in the Ocean Dunes complex next year. "

"It was a great vacation relaxing beautiful view of ocean nice place to stay"
"Basically, I didn't want to write a review because I hope this place doesn't get too filled up with others and we can't book again. We were there for the beach, so to be honest we were outside most of the time. But the house had everything we needed. And the location cannot be beat. Fell in love with the area. My only negative would be the hide a bed. I'm not sure it's accurate to say it sleeps 4 because that mattress felt a little hazardous. But other than that, we had an amazing stay and staff was wonderful."
"Unsafe chairs on deck. Deck umbrella broken. Front screen/storm door not close-able or lockable. Towel bar falling off wall. No potato peeler or tongs. No wine glasses except throw-away plastic. Hall light burned out. No clothes hangers in closets. No hair dryer. Wall phone not working. "Filter" flashing on thermostat. Bedroom blinds not operable--open but won't close. Management unconcerned, not responsive."
Thank you for your feedback. We apologize that you encountered some concerns with the property. Members of our front desk team and management talked to you frequently during your stay, as well as reached out to you multiple times via phone and email to follow up and never received a response. Our maintenance technician was also sent out twice to supply requested items for you to have a more enjoyable stay. Landlines and hair dryers are not required to be furnished. We are so sorry that you felt us to be unconcerned, as each guest experience is important to us. That is why we sent staff out to the unit for you and communicated with you frequently. We hope for the chance to provide you a more relaxing time at the beach in the future. Guest Services Manager SNS 6/28
"The process was very smooth. Liked the email reminders and the app. The deck chairs were not safe to use. They were flimsy and some were broken. We were not able to sit on them at all. Had to bring our chairs from inside every time we sat on the deck. I feel like the condo should have provided toilet paper and trash bags- we had to purchase both. Both of these items are reflected in the 4star rating in the area of general condition. Excellent view and location!!"
Thank you for providing feedback on your recent stay. We apologize that you experienced some maintenance concerns during your visit and we would have loved to take care of this for you during your stay. We provide one roll of toilet paper for every bathroom and one liner for every trash can for our guests. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay overall. Guest Services Manager SNS 8/4
"I had a very hard time finding the correct Intracoastal office. The vertical blinds on the sliding doors need replacing. The storm door latch needs repair. Otherwise the rental was nice, neighbors were friendly. Property was clean. "

"The view is wonderful. However, the apartment numbers were misleading...104 is on the fourth level and steps are a problem for me. Also, the pictures depicted a walkway to the beach that was on another building location several houses down. It took a long time to find the perfect location, only to find it not as depicted. Very disappointed. For people that don't care for the inconvenience, the view is terrific."
Thank you for providing feedback on your recent stay. We apologize that you experienced some issues due to location of this property during your visit. This unit is a 3rd floor unit over parking. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay overall. Guest Services Manager SNS 6/27
"The rental was nice but not so clean. Upon entering, it smelled of urine. The bedspread had obvious urine stains on it and so did the bedroom carpet. I called Intracostal & they quickly responded with clean sheets & bedspread. I left the sheets that were on it, on and put the new sheets overtop of the clean ones that were already on. There was food on the kitchen walls where the garbage can sat. I used Lysol wipes and clean the wall. When leaving, I took off both sets of sheets and there was a newer bloodstain in the middle of the mattress pad. I reported this upon departure and suggested a thorough cleaning before renting."

"The condo was dirty. The first closet and the laundry closet smelled like cat urine. The furniture was dirty and smelled very bad to the point I was afraid to sit on it. There was soap scum and hair left in the bathtub and sink, dryer sheet in the bedroom floor, food on the carpet in the living room and someones water bottle left on the deck. And the bedspread was put on upside down.
Your cleaning service needs to be more careful and take the time to be more thorough. "

"Ocean Dunes 104 was pleasant enough, but as other reviewers have mentioned, the queen bed is very uncomfortable. Every toss and turn makes the springs squeak and the mattress simply feels old and stiff. My husband and I are in our mid-fifties and a good night's sleep on vacation is appreciated, especially considering the cost involved. We have stayed in several Ocean Dunes condos; all were very nice and kept in good shape overall, however, we would not stay in this one again unless the bed is replaced with a quality bed.
Condo was pretty clean. Stay was very nice overall, but please replace the bed.
The reason I could not recommend to a friend is the bed. Most people I know want/need a good night's sleep! "
Thank you for providing feedback on your recent stay. We are sorry to hear that there were issues with the bed at your rental. We always strive to address our guests concerns during their visit. The owner has now placed a new mattress in the unit for guests. We are glad you enjoyed your stay overall. Guest Services Manager SNS 9/20
"My rental experience was very positive. I have stayed in many different units in Ocean dunes since 1996. So i know what to expect. Clean unit and we had everything we needed for a great getaway from our hectic lives. The only kind of drawback was this unit does not have a car port/garage to park your vehicle. I think it is literally the only unit in Ocean Dunes without one because I have always had one. There was a parking spot marked by our condo but it says "guest" on the concrete where we are supposed to park. Some nights other cars were parked in the spot when this needs to be marked "104" on the concrete and not "Guest". The person who rents the condo deserves the spot because there is no garage with this unit.
That being said if that was my only problem then i think life is pretty good right? But i would seriously consider changing that.
This unit could use some updating with the amenities and furniture in the near future too."
Thank you for providing feedback on your recent stay. We apologize that you experienced some issues with the parking at your rental. We will definitely discuss your suggestions on designating the spot more clearly with the owner. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay overall. Guest Services Manager SNS 9/15
"Perfect one bedroom for a couple. The view from the living room and bedroom was wonderful. The deck was private and large enough to sun bathe! "
"Fair. Beautiful location but unit needs many improvements. Bed not comfortable and sleeper sofa felt like you were sleeping in a hole. Didn't sleep well at all all week. Furniture dirty and old. Outdoor furniture was a joke. When we sat in the chairs, even a 7 year old, the chairs bent backward. Nothing comfortable in the place. I've stayed in rentals at the same price point that were in much much better condition. Would not stay there again. Will be using vrbo instead where I can read reviews of past guests. "
Thank you for providing feedback on your recent stay. We are sorry to hear that the interior did not meet your expectations. We wish that you had told us about your maintenance concerns during your stay so we could have addressed them immediately to provide you with a better experience. We will definitely pass along your furnishing notes to the owner. There are reviews of our rentals available on our site, VRBO, HomeAway, TripAdvisor, and FlipKey for guests to view. We hope to welcome you back in the future to provide a better experience. Guest Services Manager SNS 7/18
"I thoroughly enjoyed this vacation and the condo. Thank you so much. The location is the best ever if you like to be away from the crowds and enjoy the surf. It was a bit difficult to drag my luggage up all the stairs but totally worth the effort. Anyone with any physical impairments should know this condo is not for you. "
"My review for Unit 104 is generally favorable except for a couple of items.
A) The bed is the worst I have ever slept on anywhere I've ever been. In a nicer rental such as this, an upgrade to a better mattress is a must. The spring mattress was about as comfortable as a bed of nails. A cheap memory foam would be much better.
B) It wasn't very clear that there were no linens or towels provided with the rental. It should be clearly stated that none are provided.
C) The parking is not marked for Unit 104 and there is no underneath the unit parking like all the other units had. Therefore our spaces were constantly occupied by vehicles other than ours and I had to knock on doors to get cars moved out of our spaces. Mark the parking for the unit with the unit number.
The bed was so bad that I would not recommend this property to a friend.
Upgrade the sorry mattress."
Thank you for providing feedback on your recent stay. We are sorry to hear that there were issues with the bed at your rental and also apologize that you had issues with parking at your unit. We will discuss the mattress with the owner. We are glad you enjoyed your stay overall. Guest Services Manager SNS 7/7
"We really enjoyed our time at the Ocean Dunes condo. The unit was clean and well stocked with linens and kitchen items. Some of the outdoor deck furniture was in poor shape but we managed. There was no lock on the sliding glass door but there was a piece of wood in the track to take the place of a lock. Again managable. But not too classy. lol
We would definitely stay there again because of the location."
"Overall our stay was wonderful! Great location, love the top deck for sunning in the mornings and chillin' in the evenings. Not crowded on the beach. Overall cleanliness of the condo was OK--the tub was dirty underneath the bathtub mat not sure it was cleaned, we did not call maintenance since this was did not discovered this until late Sat. night, I just cleaned it & removed the mat (actually left mat out as it appeared to be moldy). Carpeted areas could have been more thoroughly vacuumed."
Thank you for providing feedback on your recent stay. We are sorry to hear that there were some cleanliness issues with your unit. We wish you had informed us of your concerns during your stay so that we could have addressed them immediately to provide you with a better experience. We have since discussed this with our cleaners.

"A great getaway. Enjoyed the view and the locale Would book this unit again."
"We really enjoyed the beach and the weather. "
Hello Nick, Thank you for choosing Intracoastal Vacation Rentals, and for taking the time to write a review! We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed both the beach and the weather during your stay at Ocean Dunes 104. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future! Sincerely, Guest Services Manager SNS 5/3
"The place itself was clean and on the ocean. The view from the balcony was awesome! We even saw dolphins one day. The access to the beach was only a few minutes walk so that was great too. The only downside was the furniture. The blinds were hard to open. The living room furniture needed updating and the sleeper sofa was very uncomfortable to sleep on. The mattress in the one bedroom was decent but my husband didn't sleep well on it. Both of those items should be replaced. Otherwise we enjoyed the place."
"Ocean Dunes 104 was perfect for our vacation. The location was excellent. The condo was not fancy and that was fine. It was clean and everything that we needed was available. The deck was amazing. Access to the beach was easy and not too far. We did not use the pool or the rec center. It would have been nice to have had covered parking but that would not keep us from renting this unit again. We brought our bikes and enjoyed the little bit of riding that we did. It is nice to have bike lanes.
The bathroom shower began to drain slowly later in the week. When I called the office they were able to take care of it that afternoon.
Our child is a student at UNCW and I foresee more trips to the beach in our future. This property will be our go-to for accommodations. Easy, friendly booking, great location and good price. "
"The pool is more than a few steps away. The drain in the bath tub drained very slow and there is a place in the ceiling in the living room that is in need of immediate repair, but overall it was a decent condo. We have stayed in the Ocen Dunes complex many times before and we were disappointed that this unit did not have a covered parking space. "
8/20- Glad to hear this guest enjoyed their stay! We have addressed the tub issue with our maintenance department so it will not be an issue in the future. The ceiling is also in the process of being repaired. Thanks for the feedback! KMF
"The view could not have been better, it was great to wake up every morning and sit out on the balcony to watch the sunrise over the ocean. The unit itself could use some updating. We tried the hide a bed on the sofa so we could hear the waves at night but it was too uncomfortable to sleep on. They could really use some blackout drapes in the bedroom because of the outside lights. Although the unit is kind of "dated", the view is the reason to rent this unit. It was a very relaxing and quiet vacation. "
"First time at Kure Beach and we picked the perfect rental unit. Spacious one-bedroom in excellent condition with the most outstanding ocean view. "
"Very nice and comfortable. We did find a small leak under the bathroom sink that needs to be looked at and there does need to be a ceiling repair in the living area. Overall just what we were looking for. "
"If you want to be in a quiet location on the water you'll really enjoy your stay. There aren't many people around the housing community or on the beach here.
The furniture, dishes, appliances and outdoor furniture need serious updating. The bedroom needs a room darkening shade or curtains because there's a street light right outside the window and it lights up the whole room. After reading other reviews about this problem I asked for the update prior to arrival but I'm told the owner said no. Fortunately my sister had a black table cloth so I made my own temporary update.
There are miles and miles to walk safely and lots going on "down the street" in either direction."
7/13 So glad this guest enjoyed the stay! Thank you for the wonderful feedback. We will look in to these updates ASAP. KMF
"Thanks to Brittany and your policies it all went well. Fives to all your questions. Thanks. Denos"
"The bathroom toilet had black mold & urine smell when we arrived. After I cleaned under the rim there was no smell. Cleaning crew needs to take notice to details such as this problem."
So sorry about the issue this guest encountered. We have addressed this with our housekeepers and hopefully this guest will be back in the future for us to show them a better experience! KMF
"Cute and very clean! The property owners need to revaluate not replacing the beach access. We would have went out on the beach more if it had been more convenient. That's a reason you pay for a place that's "on" the beach. "
We are glad this guest enjoyed their stay, this is a great little oceanfront unit! Unfortunately the beach access is a few buildings down from this unit at Ocean Dunes and is a shared access, this is managed by the HOA. KMF
"This one- bedroom condo is perfect for a couple who likes the quiet scene. The location is perfect: on the ocean, on the edge of Fort Fischer, near the ferry, & far enough away from the bustle of Carolina Beach. A great place to do nothing but run, go to the beach & decide where to eat!"
"Great Location, I thought this was a good unit for the price. Worth the stay."
"My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Gorgeous views of the ocean, convenient location, and a cozy cation getaway. Black out curtains in the bedroom would have been nice and we had to purchase a topper for the bed (due to a very stiff mattress), but overall it was a wonderful condo. "
9/25 So glad this guest enjoyed their stay so much! We will look into the black out curtains and a mattress topper with the owner. It is a lovely home, we look forward to having them again. CMM
"Great experience,nice,clean property.Would only suggest a few extra bed pillows.Would have used an extra if there were any.Would stay again! Thanks"
"My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Ocean Dunes 104 very had all that we needed and we loved the deck that made us feel like we were right on the beach without the sand. The two flights of stairs were sometimes a challenge, but we were very comfortable in our little nest."
"Perfect. The condo is beautiful, right on the beach, great location, clean, affordable. No negative feedback here."
"WONDERFUL would def. stay here again"
"Overall the place was clean w the exception of some cockroaches we saw. The walkway to the beach & pool was a little far for a family w toddlers. It's on the 3rd floor so packing & unpacking was a little challenging. No carport for room 104 sits outside not cool during the summer. The view was def nice! Overall it was pretty clean and the cookware was excellent. They need to invest in ceiling fans & drapes for the bedthroom, night lights made it bright to sleep in. The indoor pool and so called Spa it's driving distance so we never went. Nice but would not be visiting Ocean Dunes again."
7/26 So sorry this guest found the walk to the beach a little long, and the indoor amenities too far away. We hope to have them again next year, and we will put them in a more convenient home! CMM
"Overall the condo was very nice and clean. The balcony was great. The property managers were very nice. We enjoyed the stay even though Hurricane Arthur arrived. The only drawback to this condo is no access to a garage like the other condo's have..only a parking space. Would recommend this to relatives."
"This one bedroom with kitchen has everything you need for a wonderful week at the beach. The view of the beach from the living area and the deck is great. Staying at Ocean Dunes 104 was the best."
"This Oceans Dunes rental is a great location, great price and great amenities. While the unit lacked charm, it was large enough and amply furnished. Unfortunately, the mattress was in horrible condition (felt like sleeping on potatoes), the blankets were awful, and there were only 2 pillows (the unit sleeps 4). Also, the dishwasher didn't work well and we had to re-wash dishes by hand."
5/28 Will discuss with the owners these items, we can easily replace blankets and pillows. Will have maintenance look at the dishwasher. Glad they enjoyed their stay overall! CMM
"We had a wonderful time while staying at Ocean Dunes #104. The property was clean, the location was perfect and the price was right. We would definitely recommend this property and look forward to returning in the future."
"We have been renting a condo ( for vacation) in the Ocean Dunes Condo Complex for 18 years. This was by far the best unit we have ever rented-It was oceanfront, 3rd floor, private, quiet, nicely decorated, freshly painted, had a good bed in it, & was clean!!! We even thought the price was reasonable! Intercoastal Realty was great to deal with- our bedroom TV didn't work & the maintance man was there in 10 mins (& refused to take a tip!) 'Loved it so much, we hope to return every year for vacation!"
"The location was excellent, but the place was cheap. The sink leaked, there were no paper towels or trash bags, the microwave was literaaly falling apart, and the toilet paper was cheaper than I imagined toilet paper could ever be."
12/31 We only provide a start roller of toilet paper and soap. Will have maintenance look at the microwave and make sure it is repaired. Sorry they were not pleased with their stay, hopefully next time we can accommodate them in a more premier unit. CMM
"We had a very pleasant stay. The property location was perfect. You could not ask for better. Bridget was very helpful and a delight to deal with. Now, the unit could use some work. No hangers in the closets - all four closets. The rugs, particularly in the MBR need to be cleaned, or better yet, replaced. Same with LR rug. It might be nice if they upgraded the dishes/mugs. Right now you get the feeling the pieces are stolen from a diner.
Having said that, we would probably rent the unit again. Just tell the owner to spend a few bucks to spiff the place up."
11/18 Will make a note to have the above items looked at during the inventory. Glad they liked the property and would return! CMM
"Enjoyable and relaxing."
"The keys to the condo would not work well at much hassle just to get the locks to work.Made a visit twice to the office for help.I received another set of keys that was no better.On the second trip I received the Maintence keys and still was not much better.The blinds to the deck was broken and missing slats to them.Changing the locks would solve the problem.I wont stay there again"
So sorry there were issues with the keys. We will look at getting the locks changed to make this easier.
"Everything was great, was real close to beach entrance...only thing I would recommend is getting updated cooking pots...everything else was nice..had a great vacation.."
We will look to replace the pots and pans this off season, glad they had a good vacation!
"We loved Ocean Dunes! It is a family oriented complex. The beach is beautiful and never crowded. Our unit was decorated nicely and was super clean. The views from the living room, deck, and bedroom were fantastic!!! We would stay here again!"
"The rental unit beautiful. Clean! The view from the balcony beautiful. Kure Beach and Ocean Dunes is always a winner! Dishes, pots, utensils could be updated but overall everything we needed. "
"Great stay. Had a wonderful time. The facilities were in great shape. Beach was just a few steps away, which we enjoyed every day. Wilmington was close by and we did alot of shopping and visited several palces to eat there. This was a new experience for me at Kure Beach, as I have been staying in Surfside Beach, SC the past several years. It was a well thought out vacation. I trust when my son and I come back next week we will enjoy the same great experience. Thanks to your staff for making it a very pleasurable experience."
