About Louann Mason

My husband and I live in the suburbs outside of Philadelphia. We love to travel and discovered Oak Island in 2009 on a mini vacation. We fell in love with Oak Island and purchased a condo in Ocean Walk Complex. Now that our family is growing with grandchildren we decided to purchase this beach house make new memories with our grandchildren!

The house is set up to be kid friendly. Bunk beds, kids table and chairs, toys, deck gate, etc was designed with small children in mind.

Safety and a worry free vacation is our motto.

Louann Mason purchased this house in 2012

Why Louann Mason chose Long Beach

This beach house was our dream come true. We wanted to be on the beach and have unobstructed views of the ocean. After completely renovating this property we are now ready to enjoy it with our family and friends. This island offers quiet, clean, safe and friendly beach and community.

OKI has wonderful restaurants, fresh seafood and plenty of activities for everyone. If you like to bicycle this is the place. Ten miles of flat terrain and beautiful Ocean and Intercostal scenery. You won't be disappointed!

What makes this house unique

This family oriented beach has everything you will need to relax and enjoy your vacation. Enjoy your morning coffee on the deck and watch the sunrise while taking in the ocean breeze or enjoy your evening with a drink on the deck watching the breathtaking sunset. Stroll on the white sandy beach picking shells and enjoying each others company. Children will enjoy playing in the backyard while parents sit on the deck relaxing. Great restaurants with fresh seafood, Food Lion grocery store on island, public library, coffee shop, Dairy Queen, pizza and sandwich shops all within 2-3 miles of this beach front house. Tennis, golf, kayaking, skateboarding, fishing all close by.

Awesome location & beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect about the home and matched up to the description that was posted.

My adult sons were even bragging about how beautiful this rental property was and how great the location. We had plenty of room for 5 adults. The only negative was there were tractors parked on the beach directly in front of the home, but that was NOT the owners fault, it appeared that maybe some construction work was being done on the public beach access which was located one home over. We didn't mind looking around them. If you love the sunrise and sunsets then this is the house for you, it sets high enough to capture great pictures (even around any obstacles, like tractors parked on the beach). I'm sure this is a temporary thing and this is something we could NOT hold against the property :)

The rental owner, Louann, was easy to deal with and would promptly respond to any email that I sent over to her. She is awesome, made this a great experience and we will definitely be renting from her again. The home décor is beautifully displayed, the kitchen had up to date appliances, the bathrooms were awesome too! The master bed slept much better than most hotels that I ever stayed in. I highly recommend this rental property!!

Owner's Response: Charlotte, I am so delighted your family enjoyed the beach and the house. I am so sorry about the heavy equipment parked on the beach during your visit. The beach restoration is the outcome of Hurricane Matthew which did extensive damage to the dunes. It should be done very soon with new plantings and fence. Oak Island is such a lovely beach town and the beach with its' breathtaking sunrise and sunset will be well worth your next visit. Thank you for leaving my house in such great shape. It looked like the cleaner was there...very tidy. Hope to see you soon or Christmas 2018. Best wishes for a wonderful New Year to you and your family! Louann

The house was so comforable and had everything other than linens that you would need for an enjoyable stay for all ages, (we had 4 generations staying from 19 months to 76 years old ) the kitchen was well stocked, games for the kids, chairs and sand toys for the beach and the owners were quick to respond if you had any questions, i would highly recommend this property and am looking forward to another visit!!

ocean front dream

  • 5 of 5

My family truly enjoyed this wonderful oceanfront home on Oak Island! It has very comfortable furniture and is very kid-friendly being on one level, with a kid's table and chairs. The beds are all very comfortable which is hard to find! The kitchen is very well stocked and has all the utensils, pots and pans you might need. The beach is just steps from your door, and the deck overlooking the ocean is perfect for evening hang-outs. Grocery stores, restaurants and shopping are within minutes. Southport is a fun town nearby to explore. We look forward to our next adventure here at Atlantic Dream!

A Wonderful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a wonderful Beach House! Extremely clean, very well-maintained, and very comfortable. Louann and Ron were a joy to work with and were very responsive to every question. The furniture is very comfortable and the beds are like sleeping in a cloud! Thank you very, very much! Mike and Lori

Beautiful and clean

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful vacation on Oak Island in this fabulous house. We had 4 adults and 3 children with plenty of room. The layout of the house is open and very accommodating. The deck with a direct ocean view is amazing!! You can't get any closer! You're steps from the beach! This home is very clean which was important to me. Louann, the owner, is absolutely fantastic to work with and went above and beyond for us numerous times. I've been renting beach houses in a few different areas for several years and have never come across anyone nicer! :) I would most definitely return to Oak Island and this home in the future.

Perfect vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Atlantic dreams. The house was perfectly clean & so well equipped. Louann was readily available at all times via email & took the time to answer our questions thoroughly & gave us some great recommendations. There was more than enough room for my husband & I & our 4 kids. The beach is readily accessible- a very short walk around the sand dunes & never overly crowded.

The only thing we would have changed would have been to have some sort of table to eat at on the back deck. We were also disappointed that campfires are not allowed on the beach (during turtle season.)

Oak Island is such a nice little town with plenty of shopping & restaurants & southport is very close by for even more choices.

We would definitely consider returning to Atlantic dreams!
