Overall satisfaction
This was our third time staying at Bianchi and it never disappoints.From all the stress of last year, upon entering Bianchi a feeling of rest swept over you with the view of the ocean before us. . This place is beautifully decorated and well stocked. Even though the winds were gusty on the beach with blowing sand, my husband and I were able to enjoy the ocean view from our balcony minus the sand:). We look forward to many more stays at Bianchi and feel it is becoming our home away from home.Thank you so much.
Manager response on 2021-07-01 - Response from Bryant Real Estate
Welcome back Ann! We're thrilled to see you decided to enjoy Bianchi! With the beautiful beach décor and the feeling like your home away from home on the beach, we understand why you choose to come back! We hope you were able to enjoy all the wonderful amenities just steps to minutes from the front door of this complex. Just down the road you will find the beautiful Fort. Fisher filled with so much history and sites you must see. Drive a minute extra and you will find our aquarium that offers an amazing otter exhibit this year! The location of Bianchi offers not only the chance to relax on the beach in paradise, but also the chance to explore the history and excitement of the Cape Fear. Thank you for allowing Bianchi to host your family vacation again, Ann! We're looking forward to hosting the next one!

Pam - We're thrilled to hear that you enjoyed Bianchi and all that it has to offer! You are correct! For fisher is just down the road, along with the aquarium, and the ferry that takes you to old historic Southport. Thank you for visiting Carolina/ Kure Beach! Looking forward to your next beach vacation getaway!

Overall satisfaction
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Dolphin Court, Ocean Dunes. Being right on the beach made all the difference. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo was exactly as advertised -- very comfortable, beautifully decorated, and located right on the beach. The spacious living room provided lots of good seating, with a large TV, with cable and Netflix, as well as a DVD player. The kitchen was newly-renovated with upscale appliances and was very well-equipped. Having a washer-dryer was certainly convenient, too.. The spacious decks off the living room and the front bedroom, provided the perfect spot to enjoy the sunrise. Kure Beach was a great location, definitely quieter than Carolina Beach, which was just up the road.
Manager response on 2021-04-30 - Response from Bryant Real Estate
Thank you for the wonderful review, Daryl! Bianchi is truly a must see! The ocean front deck and the location make this into a very desirable condo. With Ft. Fisher, the aquarium, and the ferry just a short drive away, Bianchi is a must visit! Thank you for choosing us for your beach vacation getaway! Looking forward to your next vacation with us.

We had a great short stay at this well appointed unit. The top floor location was ideal, stunning ocean views from the living room, master bedroom and large balcony. The view felt like we were on a cruise ship. The unit is 2.5 miles from the Fort Fisher Ferry, (which for only $7.00 for a car and 2 passengers was a screaming deal!) We hopped on to go over to Southport and Caswell Beach for the afternoon. We enjoyed dinner in Wilmington. The unit itself was beautifully decorated, top line appliances, well stocked with kitchen utensils, and anything you would need. I would not only highly recommend the unit, but would no doubt stay again if the opportunity presented itself!

Everything was amazing, loved the location and cleanliness. The condo was right on the beach and newly updated .. it was BEAUTIFUL! My only complaint is to update the what you need to bring list, we brought tons of stuff that we didn’t even use, which was a pain to fit in the car along with our 3 children and all of our stuff. We would definitely not hesitate to rent again.

The Bianchi was just wonderful! We've stayed in many condos in the Ocean Dunes community over the last 6 years and this is the nicest so far! It's very well equipped with plenty of seating inside and outside. The beds are comfortable, about a medium softness. There are some books, videos, and a couple of games in the home. The building is located between a beach walkway and a pool, perfect for a quick dip after a hot day on the beach. I can't wait to stay here again! Note to owner, you may want to update the couch cushions in a few years. They seem to be getting a bit worn. Also, check the blankets. there was one we used as a throw that had holes in it. Nothing at all that made a bit of difference to our stay. The couch is still comfy!

This property is in a good location and the view is fantastic! The condo was well kept and spotless! You should be aware that there is little or no beach available when the tide is high and that access to the condo is up three (short) flights of stairs. Easy to find and close to many great restaurants and attractions. Catch the ferry over to Southport and spend the day; you won't regret it! We will definitely be returning!

We had never been to Kure Beach but we like trying new places and took a chance. This condo is beautifully decorated, had everything we needed and had a gorgeous view. We enjoyed the beach, it was also beautiful and we weren't having to fight crowds for a spot on the beach. Everything was perfect until the last day when the maintenance man knocked on the door and said they would be cutting of the water in 20-30 minutes for about 4 hours. That was the only notice we received about this and it was a huge inconvenience. Had we been given better notice, we would have planned out last two days differently. Our plan was to sleep in, do the laundry that needed to be done and cook lunch and dinner there. I had just put my 1st load of laundry in the washer when he knocked on the door, he said 20-30 minutes but it was more like 10 because that 1 load didn't even finish. I had vegetables to wash to cook for lunch and couldn't, we had to use bottled water to fill the kuerig and brush our teeth. It turned out that the water was off for less than the 4 hours we were told but It was a HUGE inconvenience and it really ruined our last day. It would have been fine with notice, we aren't that difficult to deal with.

We appreciate your feedback. Unfortunately we had no idea about the water shut off until you contacted us, or we would have let you know in advance, we apologize that it happened during your stay. The Homeowner's Association had to shut off the water to the building for a repair from a broken water line we were told when we called them. Although we did offer the use of another unit for you to go to during the time, but we are happy that the repair did not take as long as expected. This is a beautiful unit and hope that you will visit us again next year.

We loved our stay at Kure Beach. The condo was clean, updated, and downright beautiful. They have everything you can think of in the Condo. The man that lives downstairs gave us lots of tips of where to go and eat and sight seeing tips also. I would highly recommend staying here, as I would stay there again.

This was our second year staying at Bianchi and it was just as wonderful as the first year. Was a bit disappointed that neither of the clocks were working properly. While this may seem trivial, I love the working mechanics of them, they may have needed new batteries but was afraid to touch them as they were not our property. The place is in excellent condition. Truly enjoyed the black out curtains in the master and living room as opposed to the vertical shade. Thank you. Looking forward to planning another stay.

Had a great time. Loved the location and community. Great walks up to Ft Fisher every morning. Only one recommendation. The threshold strip going into the master bedroom has a nail that sticks up and I cut my foot because you don't know it's there until you step on it. It should be fixed before someone (not so understanding) gets hurt and decides to be ugly about it. Other than that, it was great. Hope to come back.

My only concern is that the pool area needed some upkeep as far as peeling paint overgrown landscaping spider nests and the garbage was not emptied daily. Also there was a huge ant issue the whole week as well as a pony tail holder and a artificial nail that obviously broke off of someone's finger had been there ALL WEEK. Totally GROSS Whomever cleaned the condo did an AMAZING job as it was spotless and felt like home

While we have stayed about seven times in Carolina Beach across several locations, this was out first time staying in Kure Beach.
We really enjoyed our stay and appreciated the quiet, residential, family-oriented atmosphere of Kure Beach. The beach was a short walk from the condo and there was plenty of room on the beach to enjoy the ocean without feeling it was overpopulated.

The condo itself was well-appointed and the deck afforded an awesome view of the ocean...just spectacular listening to the surf. There was an issue with the A/C unit during our stay and the management company was quick to respond and courteous. They got the unit running again and an HVAC team was dispatched the next day to make the necessary repairs with a minimum of disturbance to us.

The location is great...short hop to Wilmington for evening excursions. Also took the ferry to Southport and hopped a ferry there to Bald Head Island for the day.

Other than that, the pool was nice and not too busy. We played tennis at the rec center once in the evening and that was fun. It would be nice if the condo outdoor pool was open a bit later to appreciate some quiet nighttime swimming but I also appreciate the residential nature of the area and wouldn't want to change that.

We would definitely consider visiting again.

What a lovely little spot. The condo is not large, but has everything needed for a great getaway. We loved the large patio, and the amazing view with just a short walk to the ocean. The furniture is in great shape, and the condo is VERY clean and well maintained. The stairs were not an issue, as we thought they might be. My only negative comment would be the front bedroom with the two twin beds definitely needs a ceiling fan as the AC just doesn't work well back there. All-in-all though a great spot and well worth the cost with the proximity to the ocean. I would highly recommend it!

We had a very enjoyable weekend at this beautifully furnished and decorated condo. We were on the second floor with the deck overlooking the ocean and the wonderful sound of surf when we had the doors open with the screens in use was our constant companion. There were a few small negatives - a faulty switch for the overhead kitchen light, a loose hinge for the kitchen corner cupboard, crumbs on the sofa bed mattress pad, which we padded with some of the twenty or more extra pillows in the bedroom closets, bathroom rugs that had not been washed before our stay ( I washed them in the washing machine which had a bad odor.) However, none of these issues negatively impacted our happiness at being in such glorious surroundings. Of course, we walked on the beach and out to the end of the pier (about 2-1/3 miles round trip), took pictures of the resident, very spoiled pelican. We enjoyed dinner at Michael's Seafood in adjoining town Carolina Beach. We would have liked to eat at the Shuckin' Shavk in Kure Beach(the fresh seafood looked awesome) but couldn't get a seat at 6:30 on a Saturday evening. We had a good time walking around Ft. Fisher park and reading about all the Civil War history that happened there. We also arrived in Kure Beach via the Ft. Fisher ferry from Southport, which I loved. All in all, we had a greatt time and would definately stay at Bianchi again.

The Bianchi condo is a true home away from home! From the moment you step in and see the true oceanfront view, you will fall in love. This is our second year at Ocean Dunes and we really enjoy the complex and area. There had been much beach erosion as of late, but the northern end of the island (where Bianchi is located) has more sand and beach areas. The outdoor pool can be seen from the front door (but be warned that the indoor pool is not heated!)
Bianchi had been remodeled and is amazing. The kitchen is updated and very clean, there is pantry space for groceries, ceiling fans in all of the bedrooms and the master rain shower head is an added bonus.
We had a few issues that Bryant took care of quickly and with minimal interruptions to our vacation time. Check in and out was a breeze.
We will hope to stay again! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

We go to Kure beach every year with our family of four and look forward to it all year. We have been staying at the ocean dunes for the past 4 years. This condo was nicely updated however the cleanliness was not as we expected. Upon arrival we found personal items left in both showers, goes to show how well the showers were cleaned....not at all!! We did call Bryant realty and they were very nice to send someone over however all they did was collect the items out of the showers and leave!! No cleaning ever occurred!! We had to go through and do a cleaning on the condo ourselves!! I do not think the first thing you should have to do on vacation is clean the condo you are paying this much for. We love the area, prob will not stay with Bryant again unless they change their cleaning policy or companies. If I were the owner of this unit I would not be pleased either, blinds were broken off and just curled up in the corner. The bifold doors to the washer and dryer was broke as well. The unit really needed a good cleaning. Dust bunnies on the ceiling by the air vents and walls were dirty. Not what I expected for the price we paid. We left the place in better shape than when we checked in. Also had a half empty bottle of vodka on the counter when we arrived. Just not impressed at all but cleaned it ourself and moved on.
