Oak Island house description

AMAZING GRACE, Amazing beach, Amazing vistas and Amazing sunsets! Our home at Oak Island, NC awaits your rest and recreation! NEW BRIDGE on west end is now open! This shortens the drive to Amazing Grace from the west, US 74-NC 211, by as much as a half hour.

Come and enjoy our colorful, relaxing and comfortable home just steps away from the ocean at one of America's best beaches. USA Today's May 25, 2012 travel feature named Oak Island one of 51 GREAT AMERICAN BEACHES.....NORTH CAROLINA: 'The state's coastline is one long, 300 mile beach: The trick is finding a stretch that's not so remote you have to bring your own drinking water, or so over run by T-shirt huts and putt-putts that you want to flee. Oak Island, south of Wilmington, has a nice blend of basic amenities and miles of open beach. There's great kayaking on the sound side, a transportation system friendly to bikes, and small town atmosphere.'

The views across the marsh from the screened porch include the masts of sailing yachts and the raised nets of shrimp trawlers navigating the Intracoastal Waterway. Flocks of graceful pelicans dot the skies of both the marsh and the beach.

When variety of activity beckons, look no farther than a 10 block walk or a quick drive to the Blue Water Point Marina. Check out the catch of the day or slide your boat into the sound at the public boat ramp. A dinner at the Marina's Fish House Restaurant will be a treat you will long remember. Stay through the evening and catch a marsh view sunset or return to Amazing Grace and catch the end of the day from the sunset deck. OKI....the all seasons retreat!

Arrival is available at 3:00 pm and departure is by 10:00 am. Summer season rentals are weekly from Saturday to Saturday. We are flexible for day in/out arrangements for rentals during the other seasons.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2004

                          About the owner: We enjoyed transitioning this home after we became owners. Lisa, an interior designer with a reputation of creating warm and comfortable spaces, brought her touch to Amazing Grace. Jim is a consultant, advisor,coach, authoer and speaker for stakeholders in benefits, insurance and risk management. We enjoy our visits here with family and friends for rest and recreation. Come share the home with your family or friends for a refreshing change of pace at one of the Atlantic's most beautiful beaches.

                          Why the Owner Chose Oak Island:
                          We have always been drawn to the Carolinas beaches. Lisa was raised in South Carolina and Jim adopted the Carolinas as home from his collegiate days. After visiting many beaches through the years, we sought to find the quiet family beach that offered a balance of best natural qualities at the best value. After being introduced to Oak Island properties in the Fall of 2003, we made our investment in 2004.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Amazing Grace is at the quiet Kings Lynn west-end 'Point' of OKI where you feel like you're at a private beach. The ocean and marsh vistas are superb and the sunsets are breathtaking. Boaters have access to a public ramp at the Blue Water Point Marina. From there, it's a quick ride to the Intracoastal waterway or the open water through the Lockwood folly inlet. Surf, pier and charter fishing are available on the Island. Those who love to browse for antiques will enjoy the short drive to historic Southport.
