Enjoy the ocean and the sound from this comfortable home. The walk to the ocean is short, and the beaches at this quiet end of Oak Island are uncrowded and spacious. The sun rises on the east end of the ocean front and sets on the west end. In summer, the sunset is viewed from the sound-side deck. As the day progresses, the sound side deck usually has shade by noon while the ocean side deck enjoys sunshine.

About the owner: My husband and I bought this house to provide a gathering spot for our family so that we could enjoy the ocean and boating activities. The large driveway provides plenty of room for boats and for children to play; the relaxing sounds of the ocean and the sea buoy force us to slow down and take it easy.
Why the Owner Chose Oak Island: This location is close to the Blue Water Point Marina, 'The Point' and the beach. While our cottage is not ocean front, the walk is short. The beach is usually a quiet, family-friendly spot with plenty of space to claim as your own to enjoy. It is safe to leave your tent or umbrella and gear for the day.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: We love the sound of the breaking waves and the sound of the ocean buoy guiding boats into the Lockwood Folly Inlet. We also love the sightings we often have of dolphins, pelicans, and boats. It is a great place from which we watch sunsrises, sunsets and the stars.
