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

Good winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for the month of February, nicely kept, good location, friendly neighbors. This pet friendly property is a great place to avoid the snow and cold of the northeast without the Florida crowds.

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!!!

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.
