About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The 12 minute walk to one of several public beach access points is easy with only one major road to cross. A 'cargo cart' is available for carrying chairs and other beach necessities. There is very convenient public parking at several beach access areas within a one to two minute drive. The beach is relaxing with no high rise hotels in sight. Within two blocks to the north is a public boat access to the Intercoastal Waterway as well as parking for a boat trailer. Nearby Yacht Drive offers lovely views of the Intercoastal Waterway while walking or biking.

The privacy fence surrounding the backyard allows you to sip your morning coffee in complete privacy or have a romantic evening meal. A HDTV is available in the den/ kitchen area for viewing enjoyment along with laminate flooring. Additional flat screen TVs are available in the master and other queen bedroom. All furnishings and decor are new, as well as several appliances. The layout of the bedrooms offers privacy for the master suite with a garden tub. The two additional bedrooms share a bathroom. All new bedroom carpet has been added for the 2015 season.

This house and neighborhood says relax and enjoy the natural side of Oak Island.

About The Owner

As many of our friends retired to Oak Island, my husband and I visited often and loved the very quiet feel of the area with lots of golfing choices, good local restaurants and the attitude of 'we are on Island time'- no schedules allowed. Two couples own this property that has been completely updated. Please come relax and enjoy!

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Met all our needs

  • 4 of 5

Overall the house was nice and quiet. Screened in back patio with a nice backyard was a plus. Beach was just a few blocks away and is close to the grocery store and restaurants on island. Owner was very responsive and made sure you were comfortable and had all of your basic needs.

Perfect home for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband was changing jobs so we combined a family vacation with securing a permanent resident in Southport NC. Perfect location to go to the beach, discover the surrounding areas.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to spend a few weeks in this home with our three sons and had a wonderful time. The home is immaculate and well set up for families. We enjoyed walking to the nearby sound side fishing dock each evening and biking around the island. Our boys loved biking to the nearby donut/ice cream shop as well.

We appreciated small touches like the beach wagon. The home has comfortable beds and we were very happy to find a large master closet that doubled as a sleeping area for our 4 year old when the grandparents came to stay.

The owners are very friendly and do everything possible to make your stay comfortable. The wi-fi was a lifesaver as my husband had to work remote for much of our stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much! We try to maintain the house as if we lived there all the time. When families are vacationing they should not have to think about anything but relaxing and enjoying Oak Island and all it has to offer. We would love to have you come for a return visit!

Excellent vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I vacationed here about a month ago and we had an amazing time. The owners are wonderful and easy to work with. They had so many accommodations that I would have never thought about. For example, the beach was a life saver! I recommend this to ANYBODY weather you have childern, on a romantic get away, or a girls weekend this home has everything you may need. I will visit Oak Island again and this vacation home will be my first choice.

Awesome...2nd visit!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our 2nd trip to this adorable cottage. It's so cute, comfortable an affordable, I almost want to keep this place my little secret! Right when we walked in we remembered all the reasons we loved this rental. The owners have a great eye for decorating and we loved the cute new mini bar they added. This visit we were so excited to bring our new boat and the public boat ramp right around the corner was easy to use and extremely convenient. We spent all day exploring the waterways and had great meals in Ocean Isle, Holden and Southport. When we did eat at the house, everything is well stocked and the screened in back porch is the perfect dining spot. The kids loved walking to Kings and the other beach shops and we even added a few new hermit crabs to our family! The owners may be the easiest owners I've ever had the pleasure of working with on VRBO and you can tell they are sharing their family home with you rather than a sterile commercial rental. It's caring owners like these that make VRBO successful. I am sure whenever we stay in Oak Island this house will be our first choice. Thanks again for another wonderful week at the beach!

Owner's Response: Thanks again for such a nice review. We do enjoy sharing our beach cottage and all the renters have been fantastic. We appreciate that renters enjoy the small amenities that make a house a home! I hope everyone will continue to find the house in good shape and enjoy the peaceful location as well as the close waterway access!
