Approximately 100 yards from the Atlantic Ocean, it overlooks the beach and provides an ocean view. Very nearby are dozens of dining opportunities with all kinds cuisine from traditional American, local seafood, Thai, Mexican, and Chinese all in their own special setting and many on the water front. Grocery stores are less than 5 minutes away and Historic Southport is less than 10 minutes with all its waterfront shopping, historic houses and other distinctions: (such as the first city to celebrate the 4th of July). Take the Ferry to Fort Fisher and the NC Aquarium for a great day trip.

About Jim & Tammy Suggs 336 861-8627 *

We love this beach house at Oak Island. It has been our favorite family vacation spot for many years. Sitting on the back deck with a view of the ocean is really special. Watching the surf and swimmers and fishing boats is entertaining and spotting the occasional dolphin is always a treat. Our guestbook is filled with testimonies of folks who rave about how comfortable the house was and how they definitely plan to return. Many return year after year. Please join them and make Abundance your annual family beach destination.

Why Jim & Tammy Suggs 336 861-8627 * chose Southern Coast

Oak Island is the perfect family vacation place. It is quiet and low key but has a great variety of restaurants and recreational activities. We chose the area of the island which has maintained a broad beach and very minimal commercial growth.

What makes this house unique

You can sit on the deck and look at the ocean all day. The giant porch swing in the shade is wonderful for relaxing and napping as is the hammock below. Visits to historical Southport and Wilmington are minutes away as well as Myrtle Beach. Taking the ferry to Fort Fisher and the NC Aquarium is a memory maker along with finding sand dollars in the surf at sunset. Fishing in the surf, in the sound, on the pier or from a charter boat are all available.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here for several years and plan to go again next year. Really nice as we arrived the neighbor came over to greet us and wished us a good week. As close as it is to the beach everyone can do their own thing. If you are looking for the crowds and the waiting in long lines to eat this is not the place to go. There are numerous places to eat within a short drive. During our week we visited Southport, Wilmington and Broadway at the Beach, all a short drive.

Beautiful place for a vacation

  • 4 of 5

Very nice place. Very clean and well stocked with kitchen needs. Absolutely loved the porch, deck and area underneath the house for relaxing. The outdoor shower was great and kept the sand inside the house to a minimum. We went with another family and the layout couldn't have been better. They had one whole side of the house and we had the other. No sharing space or bathrooms if you didn't want to. Jim & Tammy were easy to work with and very responsive to any questions or concerns. The one drawback and of course the owners can not control this, is that the unobstructed view is no longer unobstructed. We showed up and there were two large houses built right in the view. One of them was still under construction at the time. You can still see the ocean but the view just isn't as great as it was. Other than that, we had a great time there. The beach is sooooo close. We walked over each day. There are a lot of great restaurants close by, I highly recommend Shagger Jack's and BBQ House. Oh, if you plan on going to the store to get groceries for the week, I suggest you either go off the island or be prepared to stand in line for a while. It was like Black Friday there on Saturday afternoon. I'm still glad we got it all done and back to the house that day.

Making Memories

  • 5 of 5

We held a family reunion/celebration at Abundance and there was plenty or room for all of us. This is a great house for a group like ours - the front porch with a gigantic swing, the back deck with the ocean view, the patio on the lower level complete with grill and hammock. And there was a huge dining room table, perfect for family meals, and, of course, electronics.

We were a few minutes walk from the beach, a short ride from Southport where there are museums, shopping, and the ferry to the Aquarium, and close to many excellent restaurants on Oak Island.

We have rented houses at Oak Island over the years - this was our first time with VRBO, and it was the best yet. The owners, Jim and Tammy Suggs, provided us with the means for a memorable vacation.

Wonderful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This place is great. Very clean, nice layout, and the 2 porches are where we spent all our time when we were not at the beach or out sightseeing. Jim and Tammy were great to work with and very responsive.

Very short walk to the pier and beach - was fun to walk the pier at night and see the sunset.

If you are looking for more adventure, take a paddleboard lesson with Southport Paddle & Sail.

I have rented lots of beach houses and this is one of the best ones I have stayed in!
