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 Long Beach

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.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay at the Po Boy and we again have had a great time. This is an older home, but a well-cared for one. This is a family oriented home with 3 bedrooms, a chest full of sand toys, a fire pit, and being able to see the kids play on the beach from the property (though less so this time as the dunes have been renourished, which is good for the property!). We enjoyed our time making smores, digging around on the beach, jumping in the waves (even though it was cold), and having cups of coffee and hot chocolate from the porch swing and screened in porch while watching the waves and playing board games.

We also had a great time going to local seafood mongers and getting fresh seafood to enjoy during our entire stay.

A Great Escape!

  • 5 of 5

A true gem! We loved our mini-vacation at PoBoy. The house is a very well maintained and we had everything needed in the home. Nice televisions and comfortable beds too . I absolutely loved the porch swing that faces the ocean. The owner was very responsive. This will be the place I request every time I visit Oak Island.

Vintage beach life at its best!

  • 5 of 5

We purposefully sought out a true beach cottage with real character. This is it. Wood floors and beams, a porch swing, fire pit. If you want new and fancy this is not it. If you want character? You’ll love it!
