Darlings By The Sea
Ranked #1 of 5 Kure Beach B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 August 2013

This was our 3rd year staying at Darlings By The Sea! It's the perfect spot for a romantic get away! It's quiet and it's just the place for two people to enjoy each others company. The basket breakfast has wonderful variety and all of the little things are supplied such as butter and cream for coffee or tea. We have made this our anniversary spot and plan to return year!

We realized on this visit that we had been 'running away' to this lovely place for over ten years! One might think that review enough -- but there is no way to say too many good things about this haven by the sea! Kure Beach has recently completed some long awaited renovations that only add to the allure of this destination! The Ocean Front Park in addition to the Boardwalk kick this lodging up a notch -- hard to do when they are already so close to the top! Location, amenities, service, and attention to detail make Darlings By the Sea an ideal choice - regardless the season! With hearty thanks to our Innkeeper, we will most assuredly be returning!

The view was beautiful! The room was perfect! Huge jacuzzi tub with two shower heads!! Yummy breakfast and snacks for the beach! Enough within walking distance. Love the quiet beach. Romantic get away. Perfect for couples. Even provide beach chairs and towels. Cleaned our dishes. Provided bikes as well. Will be back. Not one complaint.

What a special place Darlings by the sea is. Jim was so helpful and accommodating. Every detail was thought of for your comfort. The bed was amazingly comfortable and luxurious. I even purchased a set of the sheets they use. I will be back for sure! Thank you for a very memorable romantic stay.
Already planning my next visit :-)

This trip was planned as a treat for us since we'd not been to the beach in nearly two years. We could not have picked a better place to stay. Darlings by the Sea was very clean, relaxing, and completely home-like. Beach access was very handy and we were close enough to "town" to be able to walk to dinner without feeling as if we were right in the middle of the action. The personal touches were just perfect, the breakfast quiche was delicious and the basket of goodies was such a wonderful treat. The fridge was filled with orange juice, fresh fruit, and many jelly choices making a full breakfast possible.
It is clear to me that the owners appreciate their guests and aren't afraid to show it. Honestly, we were not at all disappointed with anything. We will be back!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 51, but I can't imagine any of the rooms not being "choice". The al...

We stayed 2 nights and wished it was much longer. Awesome view of the beach from the balcony. These folks have thought of everything to make your stay awesome. Enjoyed the bikes, fresh beach towels and the jacuzzi. The breakfast basket was great. Especially the homeade quiche!

Darlings By The Sea is a great place to relax and enjoy the Kure Beach area. The inn-keepers are very attentive and courteous, as well as very friendly folks. The whirlpool hot tub is a great way to wind down with some North Carolina wine. And if you're lucky, Jim will make a delicious ham and cheese quiche for your breakfast basket. Just a very nice place to stay.
