Oak Island house description

WELCOME TO 'THE ANSWER' BEACH RETREAT
We have enjoyed our family beach home for years....we thought you would too! In fact, our mission is to ensure your enjoyment and relaxation. We want to help you design YOUR perfect vacation. We are also offering a referral program too....refer your friends/neighbors for a week, and if they book with us, you get an extra day FREE for yourself!!

But enough of that, it's time to kick off your shoes and dig your toes in the soft sands of the island....get casual, relax, unwind, take a breath - and you can't miss with our cozy cottage in the quiet beach community of Oak Island.

BEACH ACCESS BY BARE FEET OR BIKE
Located in the quiet north end of the barrier Island of Oak Island, our home is situated within walking distance to the beach, Intracoastal Waterway, Davis Canal and the Community Recreation Center. By foot, my home is located within a 5 block walk to the beach. You'll surely enjoy getting there by walking or biking over the Davis Canal senic walkway at SE 20th Street.

To drive to the beach you will use streets east of SE40th or Middleton Blvd. Oak Island has over 60 beach access points with free parking. This is a family friendly beach with no high-rises, few condos and a limited commercial area - it rarely seems crowded. Our night life usually consists of a trip for an ice cream cone, a round of miniature golf or a walk on one of our two fishing piers.

THE ICW/BOATS WELCOME
The area has 3 free public boat ramps with the closest one at NE 54th. If I may suggest a fun stop while out boating - check out Provisions Restaurant in Southport for a great/casual meal.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD
My home is on the north side of the island, what's called the 'wooded' section. It runs between the Inter Coastal Waterway (ICW) and the ocean. It's quiet, shady and where many of the local residents live. For enjoyable walks or bike rides, I suggest riding down the tree lined Yacht Drive. You'll have glimpses of the ICW all along this route. Rent bikes at a nearby retailer or bring yours along.

STORES / RESTAURANTS
The island has a Food Lion grocery store located on Oak Island Drive and SE 59th St. plus there's a Lowes Foods and Wal-Mart on the mainland. Oak Island has some great restaurants and I'm fond of Thai by the Sea for either lunch or dinner and Turtle Island on Wednesday nights.

THINGS TO DO
Oak Island has much to offer in the way of things to do or not do! Just taking a beach chair and a book to the beach while working on your tan is an all time favorite but of course there is boating of all kinds and great fishing. You may want to consider renting kayaks - go explore our creeks and marshes.

It's just a couple blocks to the Oak Island Rec Center where there's a basketball court. Non-residents can pay a small fee to use the weight room, equipment room or attend a class. Middleton Park on Oak Island Drive at SE 48th has a playground for the youngsters, tennis courts, ballfields and there's a skateboard park two blocks away.

THINGS YOU'LL NEED
I provide all linens and towels. We do ask that you bring your own beach towels and beach items

UNIQUE STUFF
Did you know Oak Island is a south facing beach? You can watch sunrises AND sunsets from our beach!!! Plus we have a lighthouse, a Coast Guard Station, a public golf course, several churches, and an awesome local airport that offers sky-diving if your interested.

SOUTHPORT / BALD HEAD ISLAND / FT. FISHER FERRY
Historic Southport is a maritime village located only fifteen minutes away on the mainland. It sits at the confluence of the Cape Fear River, the Intracoastal and the Atlantic. Watch the container ships, sailboats, fishing vessels, powerboats, kayaks and the like from Waterfront Park. Plus Southport has a wide array of restaurants and shopping to offer you and the family.

Drive to the Deep Point Marina and catch the passenger ferry to Bald Head for a great day trip. No cars are allowed. You can rent a golf cart, tour the island and have a nice lunch before heading back.
Or catch the Ft. Fisher Ferry and for $5 per car, take a trip to the other side of the Cape Fear and visit the aquarium or the Wilmington beach communities of Kure, Carolina and Wrightsville Beach.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

Why the Owner Chose Oak Island:
Actually our house was our Mothers. We loved coming down here so much we bought it from her so we could keep it in the family! Oak Island is like stepping away from our hectic ordinary life, to a simpler time where the beach was a community. In the evening we drive down to the Dairy Queen or walk down to the beach to sit in the moon light and feel the breeze on our face. If we want to go antiquing, we head to historic Southport. Or, we take a stroll and admire the Yaupon trees, moss, flowers and birds that cover the island. It's beautiful, serene and wonderful here, a real hidden treasure.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Your enjoyment and relaxation are our first priorty for your stay at our home. Therefore we offer all the usual comforts of a nice vacation home- comfy beds, wonderful seating in the living room, full cable, a great kitchen, all appliances, etc. Additionally, we offer a Concierge service. So, if you choose, all your groceries will be stocked in advance of your arrival. If you decide that you would like to have a special romantic dinner at one of the area's fine restaurants, the Concierge will make your reservation and watch the children while you are out. If you desire champage and fine linens, that may be arranged as well. You decide what amenities you need, we make the arrangements!
