About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

We remodeled the cottage and keep it fresh by changing out furniture every couple of years. We also change the pillows after each season as well as bedspreads. Sometimes the pictures don't reflect those changes and so making it easy to see that we do as we say.If fresh and clean is important to you then you have found the right place to stay.

The house is 7/10 of a mile from beach. Walk down our road which takes you to a nature park that is full of trees keeping you in the shade for most of your walk .Take a fishing rod and fish off the boardwalk on your way back from the beach for a fresh dinner.

If you have lots to carry then it's a 2 minute drive to the many access points you can park ,some are just yards from the beach next to the houses on the beach.

After a long day at the beach enjoy the shade of the beautiful oak trees surrounding the house and untouched wooded lots next door. Sit in the screened in deck and watch the small wild life frolic in the yard. In the evening sit at the fire pit next to the house.

Take a romantic evening walk to the beach down our street and through the nature trail. Find your inner child and explore the tree house or bring a fishing poll and fish off the boardwalk.Then continue your stroll down to the beach.

There is a large 42' flat screen TV in main living room, and one upstairs, DVD players, VCR, CD/ipod player, board games, books, videos, puzzles, deck, screened porch. Washer and dryer in laundry room. We humbly ask that you help us keep the house clean and beautiful.

Pets and Smoking are strictly prohibited.

Why Kevin and Silvia chose Oak Island

We bought the house on Oak Island because of the quiet family oriented beaches.

What makes this house unique

Although everyone enjoys the light airy feel of the A frame, it seems that the children really like the architecture and fun loft area.

Charming and spotless

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here and wish that we could have stayed longer. Our teenagers enjoyed having their own space and made good use of the bicycles. The house is decorated beautifully and is so clean and comfortable. We didn't get a chance to use the fire pit, but hope to return and use it during a future visit!

Awesome well appointed cozy getaway!!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a slight issue accessing the home, but after that, Bliss! Silvia and Kevin have done an awesome job in making a wonderfully cozy home from home. Having grown up on Oak Island, it was very nice to come back "home". We look forward to staying again in the future, using the fire pit, bicycles, and swimming!!!

Super Clean and Cozy Property on OKI

  • 5 of 5

We spent a weekend at Love Winds celebrating a family member's birthday. The owners have done a great job upgrading the interior decor and furnishings. But, more importantly, the house is very clean and there were no signs of pets or smoking (two of my family members have allergies). The owners were also super responsive to questions we had before and during the stay. Even though it's listed as a 2BR home, with the loft, it's really like a 3BR unit which was perfect for us. The property is convenient to the grocery store and many restaurants. The beach is about 3/4 mile away by walking trail but due to our limited time, we drove to one of the many public beach access parking areas. We'll happily stay a Love Winds again when our vacation plans take us to OKI.

Owner's Response: We're so glad that our guest enjoyed the house and were pleasantly surprised about the loft area accommodations.We are particular about cleanliness especially due to guests with allergies.We do not like staying somewhere with old tired furniture, bed linens or even a coffee maker and is the reason we change everything often.
