Property description

Windrift is a unique beach front cottage that has a cozy cabin feel. With direct beach access you don't have to lug all of your beach items back and forth everyday. Windrift is also located near many turtle nests so if you are lucky enough to be there at a specific time of year you may have the rare opportunity to watch baby turtles hatching.

From our cottage you can enjoy the sunrise and sunset. It is also fun to take the short 15 minute drive into Southport where there are many things to do like go antiquing, browse through art galleries, eat on the water, go biking, crabbing or just take a swing on the waterfront. You will love the old fashion flavor found in this unique coastal town. If you are up for a day trip take the ferry to Bald Head Island or Fort Fisher to the NC Aquarium or drive to Wilmington or Myrtle Beach where there are endless possibilities for fun. Oak Island is a laid back family beach where you can truly relax, but when you want more excitement it can be found a short distance away.

The best way to reach me is through email. Please be sure to check the calendar for availability since I update it regularly. Thanks!

While on Oak Island we enjoy buying local seafood at Haag and Sons and using the grill to eat fish right on our back porch. If you like to eat out it is fun to take a drive (15 minutes) in to Southport and eat at Fishy Fishy or Provisions Company. If you go to Southport during the day be sure to check out Lantanas art gallery on Howe Street. Our son Will and other local artist sell unique gifts and paintings at Lantanas so it is a must see. If you have kids you should also take them to Bullfrogs on the corner of Moore and Howe and Spikes or Flavas for ice cream. Also take some time to sit in the swings on the waterfront and view the Oak Island lighthouse as well as Old Baldy. Southport is a quaint little town that should not be missed! While on Oak Island we love taking long walk with our dog and just enjoying the view and breezes from our porch. Oak Island is a family oriented beach so it is mostly quiet and relaxing. There are not big hotels and limited amount of commercial development. Mainly just families enjoying the beach. Since Oak Island faces south you will enjoy seeing the sun rise and set. We also love watching for the dolphins playing in the water. This is actually a pretty common site on Oak Island but still a thrill. If you are here during turtle season it is a real treat to see the turtles hatch and make their way to the water. This is a rare opportunity and takes much patience to go to the nest each night hoping to see this happen. If you need a few more magazines to read on the beach be sure to go to the Oak Island library on Oak Island drive where you can pick up used free magazines. We also have some magazines in our home as well. We hope you love your stay on Oak Island as much as we always do!
