Oak Island house description

'Island Daze' is third row back from the beachfront, backs up to tidal creek/marsh, is tidy, comfortable and affordable.

Whether it's relaxing on the beach, walking to the fishing pier, jogging, renting bikes, shopping in the locally owned stores, golfing at numerous courses, climbing to the top of the the Oak Island Lighthouse, watching a loggerhead turtle nest and lay eggs or assisting hatchlings making their way to the ocean, kayaking, taking a day trip into Wilmington (50 minutes north) or Myrtle Beach (75 minutes south) , touring a local winery, walking the historic and charming town of Southport (setting for 'Safe Haven' by Nicholas Sparks)on the mainland-just across the bridge, playing putt-putt golf, visiting the USS North Carolina Battleship, or watching the sunset paint the sky with colors, 'Island Daze' will be your home base for enjoyment and making memories.

10 miles of uncrowded beaches, family-oriented attractions make Oak Island just the beach you’ve pictured. On Oak Island, the water is always the center of attention with more than 60 public beach-access points, 2 fishing piers, 2 marinas and 3 public boat and canoe ramps.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1999

                      About the owner: My husband and I bought our home in 1999 and gradually renovated/upgraded it, mostly by ourselves and the help of friends (thanks Timblin, Geoff and Matthew!). Our home has been the nucleus of countless extended family gatherings over the years and we are so happy it has created long lasting memories for all our nieces and nephews. We hope you too will enjoy the uniqueness of Oak Island while staying at 'Island Daze'.

                      Why the Owner Chose Oak Island:
                      In the early '70's my parents choose Long Beach (now Oak Island) for our annual 2 week family beach vacation every August, and I've chosen to vacation here ever since! After considering many coastal towns in NC, my husband and I settled on Oak Island because of the low density development, mix of year round residents, second home owners and tourists, the clean uncrowded beach, funky local art scene, great restaurants, proximity to Wilmington and the natural beauty of the island.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The ocean breezes from the south facing beach, the ocean view, easy access to the beach, a grove of live oaks in our back yard which give way to the tidal creek and marsh beyond, and countless reasons to be outside enjoying the beauty of this barrier island and its wildlife are just a few reason I love being at OKI and our house.
