About The Owner

We love the gazebo overlooking the ocean, surfing the waves and looking for sea shells with our family. This beach has a family atmosphere, isn't over commercialized and there are many fun filled activities close by.

The Owner purchased this house in 1984

Why The Owner chose Southern Coast

Our family has loved the location of this quiet little piece of paradise for the past 40 years. It is close enough to the hustle and bustle of Myrtle Beach but far enough away to be a truly perfect vacation destination. The convenience of being able to walk to restaurants,shops and middleton park makes the Po Boy a winner with the family!

What makes this house unique

Surf fishing, sea shell hunting, walks to the pier, shops and skate board park, visiting the Blue Water Point Marina and Historic Southport and watching Dolphins swim.

The Southport - Oak Island area is home to the largest Fourth of July Festival in North Carolina. Southport is the only area incorporated as the NC 4th of July Festival. A whole week of activities consisting of arts and crafts, street dancing, lots of fun and a grand parade precedes an evening of fireworks to end the festivities. Please contact the Southport - Oak Island Chamber of Commerce for more scheduling of events.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed many hours on the oceanfront gazebo/swing watching the porpoises, shore birds, boats and the amazing sunrises and sunsets!

This is a small beach without the huge condo complexes and hotels making it a great place to enjoy some relaxing time at the beach.

Rest and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time renting from Renee at the Po Boy and we anticipate returning again and again in the future. Both times, we've had wonderfully restful and relaxing vacations at the Po Boy. As the house is beachfront with direct access to the beach, we spent almost all of our waking hours outside on the sand. Our family enjoyed the beach toys and boards, the ocean kayak, and the comfortable beach chairs, all part of the house. We cooked all of our meals (with a well-stocked kitchen) with the freshest of seafood from local fish mongers, and we ate all of our meals with "oceanfront" dining on the screened in porch, the gazebo, or on the beach itself. The house itself is older, but it is clean and comfortable, including having comfortable beds. We look forward to our next vacation there soon.

This is a welcoming cozy house in a PERFECT location!

  • 4 of 5

We loved this house. It felt homey from the minute we opened the door. We loved the antique hard wood floors and the rustic cottage feel from the wood beams. The view was amazing and the swing on the deck was a favorite spot even in February (just wrapped up in a blaket and sat out there for hours)! I ran the Oak Island Half Marathon and the race course took me right in front of the house! Got high fives from my family as I ran by. Perfect house. Perfect weekend!

Soulful Sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

This property provided five serious writers the unpretentious relaxed environment we were hoping for. The layout worked fine for our group. The property was clean and obviously well maintained. The owner was gracious and answered all our questions promptly. The kitchen was suitable and well equipped with everything we needed to prepare scrumptious meals. The outdoor "living" quarters were well used and appreciated daily for sharing brie and wine at sunset and fabulous yumminess at lunch time. Everyone was very satisfied with the bedrooms. We have already shared our awesome experience with others and look forward to many more writing retreats in this cozy environment.
