The owners were very accommodating! We had a broken fan in the room, but one of the owners brought us a plug in fan. They helped us update our reservation for the number of dogs/people we had. The salt water pool was amazing! And the location right across the beach made for easy access. I would recommend this place for anyone who is traveling with pets - the beach is always hard to find a good pet friendly place. But this one was great, especially with the "pet spa" to give them a shower after a long day on the beach. My only wish was to have better views of the beach from the porch.
The location was great and the outside was well maintained but inside the unit had clearly had major water damage that had not been repaired. The kitchen cabinets were covered with black mold and I could not get anyone to deal with it. I left a day early to get away.
What a great vacation with our family...including the pups! From the doggy spa to the outside porch to the dog bowls provided, this was by far the most pet friendly place we have ever stayed! We were pleased at the cleanliness of the villa, knowing that dogs have stayed there. The location was perfect, right across from a public beach access and in walking distance to a little market. We would book this place again!
everything you need, nothing you don't
This 2 BR one bath is in a super location- steps from a public beach entrance, very near the new bridge, close to the only convenience store on this end of the island, and also near two great restaurants - the Island Way located near the pier, and The Fish House restaurant. It is one of 8 units. There is a sparkling saltwater pool, and the owner was there each morning making sure it stayed that way. Even though there were plenty of kids and pets on site, it was remarkably quiet. The outside deck is a wonderful place for watching the sun rise and set.
Inside, the unit had everything you need. A/C worked great. Even though there was nonstop heavy rain prior to our stay, the unit was airtight. Beach chairs and floats were available downstairs. For dog owners, there is a glass door for the dog to look outside. They even have doggie gates to keep your dog on the deck for a bit.
To address an earlier comment on this property, yes, inside are a couple of spots with wear and/or corrosion on the walls. And no, the bathroom décor will not likely be featured in House Beautiful anytime soon. However, if you are looking for a peaceful charming beach experience, this place works great.
I enjoyed renting a beach cruiser from Mr. Beach Rental, who delivered the bicycle, lock and helmet within hours of my call. Also, owner was cooperative when I arrived an hour early in the rain with my dog and allowed me to go ahead and enter.
Convenient to the beach, but...............
Pelican Landing 8- The furniture was adequate.The floors were clean. The bathroom was clean. We found a moldy wooden spoon in the utensil drawer along with several questionably clean utensils. Under one cabinet was a moldy blender. The under-the-sink cabinet walls were moldy-rather disgusting! There were clothing in drawers in both bedrooms. The laminate floors were loose in the hallway and one bedroom. The paneled walls were coming apart in several places. The ceiling fan in the living room had a loose screw and banged terribly. We were able to quiet it for our stay. The air vents in the ceiling was horribly filthy. The paint on the porch was chipping, loose and hazardous in several places.
Great Location...Great Price...Nice Accomodations
My wife and I and our 3 children enjoyed our first stay at Oak Island, and our accommodations were great. This complex was maintained well, with a sparkling pool directly outside of our front door. There are only 8 units in this complex and this unit is on the back corner, and parking was less than 10 feet away, super convenient and easy unloading/loading of our supplies. I had the pleasure of meeting the owner and he works hard to make this complex shine. The condo and complex was nicely decorated. Each bedroom and the living room has a small wall mounted flat panel TV, so good for the kids and some downtime viewing when not enjoying the beach. The beds were comfortable and clean, with plenty of dresser storage. The kitchen was adequately stocked with all essentials, though a little dated with minor work required. A full size refrigerator, with ice trays, served us well. There were only 4 dining chairs, so we used one of our ice chests for a fifth seat. The AC was cool and quiet. This unit had one bathroom, with a shower, which was enough for our family. There were clean linens and towels packed in plastic bags for each occupant. Beach access was quick and easy, directly across the street, with views from your balcony. There is a paved road right beside the complex which made pushing our beach cart a breeze. I've stayed in other beachfront places that take longer to get to the beach than this complex. The beach was clean and quiet. It is a little narrow in the morning when the Tide is in (still plenty of room to setup your tent or shelter), but gets very wide when the tide is out. A 15 minute walk on the beach and you are at the fishing pier. The pool was clean and refreshing with outside showers. We kept our beach cart under the stairs and never worried about someone taking our boogie boards or beach supplies. There are barbecue pits and picnic tables in the center square for outdoor cooking. The rocks used for landscaping look nice, but are sharp and hard on your feet (wear sandals). There is a convenience store a few blocks away on the corner, and access to oak island and surrounding areas is easy. The main road was not too busy, but there were some spurts of traffic occasionally. Overall, this place was great, we didn't have any major issues, and were able to relax and enjoy the warm water and the oak island area.
