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 buy this beach house to be closer to the ocean!

Louann Mason purchased this house in 2012

Why Louann Mason chose Southern Coast

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.

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!

Comfortable and clean home

My family and I really enjoyed the house and the beach at Oak Island last week. The house had everything we needed and was most comfortable and very clean and well kept. Louann, the owner, sent us all the info we needed and was quick to respond if we had a question. We would definitely visit again!!

Family Matters Here

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place for families who want a clean, comfortable home away from home with spectacular ocean views. The beach is uncrowded and easily accessible for everyone. It was such a pleasure to enjoy a rental where we didn't feel like we had to clean upon arrival. The cottage was immaculate and the fully furnished kitchen was spotless. Every room was tastefully accessorized with a homey feel. This allowed us to enjoy our time in comfort and safety, especially for our 2 1/2 year old grandson. The outdoor shower with hot and cold water was an added treat. Oak Island is a welcoming treasure waiting to be explored. Luanne and Ron are wonderful hosts and even welcomed us with a gift to enjoy cold beverages on the beach! We'll be back!
