About Sarah Davidson

We are an active traveling family with 6 vacation properties for rent. This ocean front house, and another 6 houses down the street, a Townhome in Cottonwood, Utah (8 miles from Alta, Snowbird, Solitude and Brighton) and 3 Slopeside Condos in Wintergreen, Virginia. Vacation Year Round in one of our wonderful homes! We offer 10% discounts for customers who stay in two our homes in the same year. We are pet friendly because ours are apart of the family. We love to ski and play tennis as a family, but travel frequently for Sarah (Mom) who is a frequent triathlon competitor.

Sarah Davidson purchased this house in 2011

Why Sarah Davidson chose Oak Island

The View is Amazing. The ocean runs East to West so you get an Ocean Sunrise and Ocean Sunset. Conveniently located a half hour off Interstate 40.

Tennis For Free..Just 3 blocks from Free Public Tennis Courts that are in Great Shape!

For Golfers...The Oak Island Golf Club welcomes you to a coastal Carolina golfing experience. But summer vacationers to Oak Island’s vacation community in Brunswick County enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and warm southern hospitality that are hallmarks of Oak Island GC. The 18-hole, 6,720 yard George Cobb design provides an exciting adventure, round after round.

What makes this house unique

Rest, Beach, Bike, Tennis, Golf, Walks and Plenty of Night Life. Great for Families. The Wednesday Farmers market is 3 blocks away--so fun! Also in this area is a skate board park and children's playground!

We have another ocean front home 7 houses down the street if you are bringing more family and friends along--togetherness, but not too close!!


There is a skateboard park .6miles from the house, playground

Great beachfront cottage

  • 5 of 5

I love Oak Island, I have been visiting there for the last 8 years and this was a great place to stay. The cottage is nicely decorated and the kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, and dishes. The best part of the house is the extended deck overlooking the ocean - what a wonderful sight to wake up to every morning. Nothing like a good cup of coffee on one of the rocking chairs to enjoy the sunrise. The location is great, easy access to Island Way, our favorite restaurant on the island, and to the Food Lion to pick up some groceries. And I so appreciate that this cottage is pet friendly, my dog loved both the beach and laying on the deck.

Older 50's cottage, we were looking for pet friendly.

  • 4 of 5

We were a bit disappointed upon arrival but the longer we were there the more the old cottage grew on us. Perfect for pet owners. There is a lot more renovating needed but having grown up on that beach, I enjoyed the blast from the past! High tides came around sand dune during second week and flooded front stairs but public access is only two cottages up the beach so we just had to walk down street instead normal walk to beach from stairs. Not a five star property but perfectly acceptable for a vacation at the beach.

Owner's Response: Pat, Glad the cottage grew on you. Hard not to enjoy yourself when you sit on the covered deck and listen to the ocean. We have done several projects since we purchased the house. We really listen to our renters and their feedback has driven much of what we have done. I would love to hear where your initial "disappointment" came from because I am sure that would be the next thing to get fixed on our list. Best, Sarah

So convenient and sweet!

  • 4 of 5

We had such a great time at this house! It was right on the beach, so it was easy to run back and forth to the house. The beds were very comfortable and we really enjoyed our stay!

Owner's Response: Mary, I know you enjoyed the proximity of the beach to the house. It is so close and as you say "easy to run back and forth" for forgotten items or snacks! Also great for after dinner walks on the beach as well! It is a lovely time of year to be at the beach! Glad you found us on VRBO and hope you return. Kind Regards, Sarah

Perfect for a friend reunion - right on the beach

  • 4 of 5

Just checked out today after a 5-day weekend with my gal pals (we are 3 women in our 40's) and the house was perfect for our needs. We loved that it was right on the beach! The house is not fancy but it was as described. The washing machine came in handy, the kitchen was fine for cooking basics, and the porch was the perfect spot for watching the sun set.

Since it's late March and we had mid-70-degree weather, we would have loved to open the windows and let the perfect beach air into the house, but the windows are pretty old and would not open (or stay open). My one suggestion is to get new windows on the beach side of the house.

Overall we really enjoyed it and hope to come back!

Owner's Response: Whit, I know you were really looking forward to that vacation with your friends, I'm very glad you all had a good time. We do an improvement project every spring and this spring it is new windows beach side! When you come back you'll get cool beach breezes! Take Care, Sarah
