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 Tranquil Harbour

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.

"A perfect vacation for our family!"

  • 5 of 5

We loved every moment we had at Love Winds! The house was a perfect fit for us and met our every need! We were able to use two of the bikes and really loved going down to the beach on those and just "exploring"! We also walked to the beach and drove several times! The beach is close so it is very handy! Everything about the house was also handy! My son loved the upstairs and having his own space. It was nice how the downstairs is open so no matter what is going on whether it's cooking or watching tv you are all still together. We also used the fire pit making s'mores and memories that are priceless to me! The washer and dryer was so wonderful! When we left I had all clean clean clothes instead of the dreaded laundry to do when returning home! Definitely a plus for me! Everything about our stay was just wonderful and we are already talking about trying to return in 2018! Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at Love Winds!

GREAT experience! Well kept and perfect for our needs!

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 of us staying at the house and it was really just perfect.for our needs. The place was well-kept and clean. Aside from some minor TV issues on the main TV and one of the bikes' chains and gears being completely rusted over, we didn't have any issues at all. Kevin was very pleasant to deal with and the whole process of booking and arriving was very simple. We plan to return here in the future and we'd highly recommend this place to others who may be travelling in that direction. Well done, Love Winds!

We had a great time. The area is layed back & relaxing. House was clean, had everything

  • 5 of 5

House is very nice, clean, and the wooded area is nice. Close to beach. We loved the beach. It's not crowded and is very layed back. My daughters loved the house and rooms. It had everything we needed. We used the bikes, chairs and boogie board. We accidently left our board but hopefully someone can have fun like we did. It was an easy find. We walked to the beach. And liked the nature trail. It was a great place for us and our family of five. We definitely liked having the freedom to use the kitchen and all the appliances worked great. We would live to come back again.
