I think we may have found the cure for everything. If you desire RELAXATION, PRIVACY, and ROMANCE…you just found it. BONUS: it happens to be located directly on the ocean with your very own private panoramic ocean view. You see, my husband and I recently went on vacation for the second time, to the same location in one year, because we needed it-I mean loved it THAT MUCH. I decided to share all the details with my readers because it’s just too good not to. I hope you enjoy “Our Quiet Romantic Beach Getaway” and please let us know if you decide to try it out because I may be able to get you a discount πŸ˜‰.

I found our new favorite vacation spot by chance just by looking at a map 😊. I guess you could say I found our little paradise the old fashioned way. We took a risk the first time we visited in October of 2021, but our second time around this past May of 2022 was definitely a much anticipated event. My husband and I aren’t into exotic beach vacations, but we are into quiet ocean waves, and romance. The last couple of years have been stressful for everyone, so we figured why not share this wonderful spot because there are plenty of rentals in the area (although this particular one is very unique as you’ll see).

I purchased this pop-up tent for our beach days, and it was perfect.

What’s nice about this location, is that it really does seem like not too many folks know about it. Rick and I felt almost like we were on the beach alone, and in fact at times we really were. Maybe we had good timing, or got lucky, but it was such a blessing not to have to worry about too many people. We wanted to hear the ocean waves, not little Susie or Johnny (no offense to Susie or Johnny).

Our Quiet Romantic Beach Getaway Rental

Although I’m very hesitant to give out this rental information to so many peeps in fear that the next time I go to reserve a week it won’t be available πŸ˜†, I still feel like I should. By the way if you decide to rent some time here, please let Josh from “The Light House” in Kure Beach, North Carolina know that Julie Fiato sent you. Better yet, message me at redheadcandecorate@live.com and I will contact Josh for you to see if I can get you the discount we receive since we are repeat renters.

The Light House has a very interesting history, and so much care has gone into this very clean and well thought out oceanfront property. The details are truly what matter on a vacation in my opinion, and everything from the comfort of the linens, to the cooking amenities were top notch.

I enjoyed decorating with just a string of blue lights and a few battery operated candles…it really looks nice with the lights low while listening to the ocean.

Order In or Save Money Making Your Own Meal in the Mini-Kitchen

I prepared this plate of fresh ingredients that we took with us down to the beach and enjoyed in our little beach tent. Luckily I had left over BBQ pork to put in with a side of tortilla chips (saving $$$ doing this).

One of my favorite features about this unique rental in North Carolina is that we can prepare some of our meals or desserts in the unit. I admit it, getting dressed up can “be for the birds” some times πŸ˜†. This bird likes to stay home, and just enjoy my hubby & the peaceful sounds of the ocean coming right through that sliding door. I got lucky one night when Rick treated us with a seafood salad with garlic bread. By the way…Instacart was my go-to delivery service for groceries. If you aren’t in the mood to cook…just order in and take your time listening to music, or watching a movie in bed all cozy.

You can listen to the ocean waves crashing onto the shore all night and all day if you desire right from your bed…

Go Out for a Quiet Romantic Beach Dinner

After a restful sleep and some peaceful rejuvenation πŸ˜‰ we were finally ready to get dressed up a little and head out on the town (look out!). Kure Beach is a very small town located South of Carolina Beach. There are many excellent restaurants to choose from in both areas, and we are just beginning to figure out which ones are our favorite. So far, “Havana’s” is our favorite fancy outdoor restaurant and boy do we have fun there. Our favorite appetizers are the oysters and the fried calamari.

Rick and I truly had such a sweet time just focusing on “us”…not the kids, not the house/pets, not work. We got off our phones, off social media, had lots of talks, intimate moments, and pizza & ice cream make a great first meal of the day after sleeping in…just so you know.

On our final days of 8 (I always do 8 so you can have 1 extra to enjoy) we visited local quiet Kure Beach shops for a few souvenirs, and also went site seeing at famous Fort Fisher. Fort Fisher is absolutely beautiful, and the large rocks on the coast make it a perfect location for an easy photo shoot.

    So pretty and serene! I like vacations like this. The pizza looked incredible. Do you remember the name of the place?

    • Julie says:

      Yes! Michaelangelos in Carolina Beach. Don’t get the large though. The crust was too flimsy. Their mediums (which is in photo) are the best just like NYC style β™₯️

  4. Joy says:

    Wow! What a beautiful destination, Julie! My husband and I are always on the lookout for peaceful, serene beaches to explore. I definitely will be looking into this one. Thank you for posting.
    I love your hats! May I ask where you got them? So cute!

    Wow Julie you look amazing in you beach attire. Nice pic of you and hubby. My favourite pic was the sunset, how absolutely gorgeous, I might get my husband joe to paint it. The pup tent was a good idea too. Good for you and Rick to make the time for the 2 of you.
    Happy Summer, Bette
