Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: We purchased this beach house for our retirement home in 2002. When the economy took a dive 3 years ago we both lost our jobs in Charlotte, NC. Kim found an awesome job for a company in Wilmington. We are fulfilling our dream of living at the beach BEFORE retirement. We enjoy shelling, riding bikes, lazy beach days, day trips to Bald Head Island & just getting together with friends & grilling out.
Why the Owner Chose Oak Island: We first started coming to OKI in 2000 to visit friends and fell in love with the quiet, uncrowded family-oriented beaches. There are no high-rise hotels, no amusement parks, no shopping malls and NO CROWDS. This is why we love it here. Many days we have the beach almost all to ourselves. Beach access is FREE & plentiful. People are extremely friendly. It is a place for families to spend quality time together surf fishing, pier fishing, biking, walking, crabbing, shelling, swimming, kayaking, boating, playing tennis, miniature golf and much more.
The Unique Benefits at this Studio: Conveniently located only 2 blocks from the new Swain's Cut bridge on the quiet West end of the island makes access on and off the island very easy. This property is located directly on the Intracoastal Waterway. Watch the awesome yachts and cruise ships go by right from your covered seating area.
GROUND FLOOR accomodations ideal for someone unable to climb stairs.
