About The Owner

We have 2 dogs that travel with us and they LOVE the beach. This house was built by my wife's father and it has a lot of sentimental value.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1965

Why The Owner chose Long Beach

The new Oak Island bridge is close to this house, so Wilmington is only 30 minutes away and North Myrtle Beach is only a 45 minute drive.

What makes this cottage unique

Southport is only 10 minutes away and Bald Head Island is only a Ferry ride away. Both places are fun & unique !

Great location & Dog Friendly

  • 5 of 5

Small, clean cottage that is directly across the street from the beach. You can sit on the front porch and see the beach and ocean. The cottage is clean and dog friendly, which we like. It only has one bathroom, but it was not a problem. There is a convenience store behind the house which is very nice.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Karen K was the perfect place for me and my family. The house is located perfectly with quick easy beach access. There is also a store located right behind you in case of a quick need for anything you may have forgotten. The house is so cute and the perfect original cottage style. We had a wonderful stay and do plan on returning to Karen K in the future. The owner was very quick to respond and the rental transaction was easy and hassle free. Thank you for sharing this property with us.

Great Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Oak Island the beach is clean and always dog friendly. Karen K was a perfect location just a short walk across the street to the beach and a bike ride away from everything else. The house has a well stocked kitchen and the living space was cozy and the beds were comfortable. We look forward to staying again.

Great location, but needs some TLC

  • 3 of 5

Karen K has so much potential. It is in a great location but needs lots of work. The house was clean but there were lots of repairs needed. Broken lamps, stained curtains, splitting paneling, and loose boards on the stairs and balcony. Furnishings except for electronics and the bathroom appear to have come from the 1970's. The bathroom door got stuck and we had to call the maintance out to replace the lock and rescue someone from the bathroom. They came promptly but still for the amount of money you pay this should have never happened. All in all, the location and view were great but it needs some work and updates.

Blessed Family of Four

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at "Karen K"! It is right across from the beach and you can see the ocean from the front porch! It is great that they let people bring their furry friend with them. You can always improve at something. They could use some updates to the house. There were only four of us so it was perfect! Eight people can sleep but there is only one bathroom. On the plus there is a shower on the bottom to use when you get off the beach. Did not give five stars because of needing the updates and remodel. But still was really good for us!

What a wonderful, convenient home to stay at OKI!!

  • 4 of 5

We really, really enjoyed our stay in this Beach Cottage. The home was clean, convenient to everything the island has to offer - plus easily accessible to other areas (Wilmington, Southport, etc.). We have a small dog and she loved the porch to watch all the action at the beach access just across our yard. The home has everything needed if you want to cook - which we did several times during our two-week stay. It is a wonderfully kept beach cottage that has been updated where needed without losing the integrity of an orginal beach home. The store across the road is convenient and the Elks lodge behind the house had the best Fried Chicken on Sunday afternoon which we ordered "to go" and ate on our front deck. This is a great location if you like a central location to the pier, the point and the town. The owner is great to work with and made planning our time very easy.

Can't wait to make plans for our next stay at Karen K!
