About Kimberly Finn

I grew up going to the Outer Banks with my family but absolutely fell in love with Oak Island the first time I visited, 5 years ago. I love the Southern feel of the island and the hospitality of the locals. Palm trees are plentiful and nearby Southport has incredible boutique shopping and a variety of restaurants. The beaches are wide, white, and sandy and the ocean water is as warm as a bath in the summer. The waves are much more manageable for children than in the Outer Banks.

Kimberly Finn purchased this house in 2005

Great stay at the beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I (our dog too)spent a week at Play Therapy. The house was very comfortable, clean & inviting. We had stayed here once before & had a wonderful visit. We enjoy our breakfast on the large deck, coming back to Play Therapy after a day on the beach-rinsing off with the outside shower, relaxing in the beach decorated home & climbing into the king size bed at night! We forgot our bike chains at home, but left our bikes on the deck. The bikes were never messed with......a quiet, peaceful neighborhood. The owner was great to work with, easy to get in touch with, A+ all around!!!

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this cottage!! Dog friendly was the big plus for us!!! Such a nice flow, comfortable & casual. Really liked the few low steps in/out. Great for older adults or families with children. Central location to all restaurants & just minutes from the beach. Quiet neighborhood with such friendly & helpful neighbors!!! Owner so easy to work with & very quick response time. HIGHLY recommend this property!!

Great Trip!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, clean and comfortable home in a quiet neighborhood with everything a family & a dog need. The whirlpool tub, king size bed and gas grill were nice bonuses.The owner could not have been easier to work with, returning emails quickly, answering questions and emailed to let us know when to expect the deposit refund just 2 days after check out. I would recommend this property.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My dog and I stayed at this property while on Oak Island. The house is exactly as advertised and the photos are a carbon copy of what the inside and outside looks like. The place is very clean (we were a last minute arrival due to a snafu with another property not owned by Kimberly and it was still spotless upon arrival!), is decorated super cute, and the bed is comfortable. Location is super quiet, there's an outdoor shower with hot/cold water that's private so you won't have to worry about dragging sand into the house. The kitchen has just about everything you need if you want to prepare meals. It is a 5 minute or less drive to the beach and the neighbors are very friendly. I really can't think of one negative thing about the place. The only issue I have with it is that I don't want to leave it! Kimberly, you saved our vacation. Snickers and I appreciate you very much and cannot wait to stay again.

Rest, Relaxation, Rejuvenating

  • 5 of 5

What a great stay at this quaint Oak Island rental! The house was very clean and easy to keep that way. I love that I could bring my little old man doggie with me. My son and I felt safe and comfortable here. Only negative was the beds weren't easy on my back. I have back issues and the king was way too soft for me. The second bedroom did a bit better. It wouldn't keep me from visiting here again. Kimberly was wonderful to work with. Loved Island Way restaurant and Russell's Place for breakfast. Italian ice on the beach became a staple!! We didn't want to leave. My son asked if this could be our special place next year, and I am hoping so!

Wonderful Week at Oak Island

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I enjoyed our stay at "Play Therapy". The cottage was perfect for us and our two dogs; kitchen well stocked; beds very comfortable; roomy with a beachy feel; great Jacuzzi tub in master bath; everything was clean and neat. Loved the front deck for grilling, and the outdoor shower. It is hard to find a place that allows dogs, and some can be "very doggy", even for a dog lover. "Play Therapy" was not like that; No lingering pet odors, or pet hair floating around (unlike my house) and the wood floors make for easy cleanup.

I loved the location of the cottage; 1/3 a block from the Intercoastal Waterway, and a 5 min drive to the beach.

Oak Island has more than enough public beach access areas with ample parking. The beach is always clean, and never crowded. We visited our favorite resturants and ice cream shops, and enjoyed walking it all off at the beach the next day.

I am already planning another trip in Mid-October.

Thank-you for sharing you adorable beach cottage with others!!
