Overview

About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom with deep water fishing pier

This house is an absolute gem! Nestled on a private waterfront lot, this three-bedroom home is just a quick five-minute scenic walk (paved sidewalk) from the recently-renourished beaches of Oak Island. Duffy's Dock House's new owners have lovingly redecorated with your perfect vacation in mind!

Duffy's Dock House is waiting to help you create a relaxing vacation full of cherished memories. Watch the sunrise on the fishing pier as the tide flows in and out. Launch the kayaks from the dock and explore the quiet, serene, wildlife-filled Davis Creek. Use the crabpot to catch your dinner. Enjoy yourself under the shady oaks of the large grassy backyard. Take a cruise around the island on one of the owner-provided beach bikes. Load up the beach cart and stroll over the tidal creek to the beautiful beach or try your hand at surf fishing. Wash the sand from your feet in the private, outdoor hot-water shower. Put an umbrella in your drink and grab a book as you relax on the shady backporch. Whip up a gourmet meal in the well-stocked kitchen or grill out on the backyard deck. Take a family portrait on the dock with Davis Creek stretching behind you. For a rainy day, Duffy's Dock House comes equipped with plenty of games, puzzles, and books to keep the whole family entertained. If that is not enough, then take a short drive to historic Southport to visit museums, art galleries, historic homes and then dine in one of Southport's many excellent restaurants. For day trips, historic downtown Wilmington is only 40 minutes, Myrtle Beach is an easy 1 hour drive or take a scenic ferry ride to exclusive Bald Head Island. A convenience store sits just one block away on the way to the beach.

With plenty of room to spread out or get together for a family dinner, Duffy's Dock House is truly a great family vacation home. The beaches of Oak Island are waiting for you...

Notes:
You are welcome to bring your boat. We have a 12 foot floating dock. At dead low tide the bow of the boat may rest on the mud while the opposite end will not. I recommend nothing larger than 18ft flat bottom skiff. If you are not familiar with the creek it can be tricky to navigate at low tide. Ask me about bringing your boat for more details!!!

A perfect location and perfect home

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect house for our getaway. Two small families fit easily into this spacious home. Very short walk to beach. Beautiful dock on the water. Thanks

Wonderful, exactly as described!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here, we can tell that the owners have put a lot.of thought and effort into ensuring that the home is welcoming for beach travelers. Loved riding bikes around the island, fishing off the dock and hanging out at the house - playing a board game after long beach days!

Nice location

  • 1 of 5

When we first arrived we really thought everything was great. However once we took our shoes off the house was very gritty and dirty. We had to sweep just to clean up from the last occupants not to mention the roaches that we had to get rid of then there was a bad rain storm the first night we were there and when we got up in the morning noticed that the roof leaked all over the coach. Be sure to bring your own sheets and towels or you will have to rent some. The location was great and the extra things the owners have is great however the kitchen needs a few more basic things like a cookie sheet.

Everything a Vacation Should BE!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Duffy's Dock the week of Aug 21st. We immediately felt right at home. The home has so much space to spread out. The home is well maintained and it was obvious that the owners have been making up grades. We enjoyed the deck and the grill and hammock in the back yard. The dock was amazing, we saw some great sunsets. We caught several crab and had so much fun doing it, this was our first time. The kayaks were great too. This was our first time in Oak Island. There are great restaurants close by, and the beach is a short walk away. Mr. Peterson, the neighbor, is so friendly and is a wealth of knowledge of the area. Our dog also enjoyed her stay, huge back yard, and friendly neighborhood to walk. The house is stocked with pretty much any kitchen utensil you'll need. There's books, and board games to keep everyone entertained. The week we went was very hot, the AC worked great and all the rooms have ceiling fans, loved this for sleeping at night. Thank you for sharing your home with us..

I enjoy making our home available for other people and families to use. I try my best to respond to inquiries in timely manner but I also have a day job and I travel for work quite a bit so I can not always respond right away, especially on weekends. I also do my best to return deposits in a timely manner but welcome reminders by email that a deposit is due.
Our pet fee is based on length of stay. The default is set to $100 for weekly rentals. It is $50.00 for two nights, $75.00 for 3-4 nights and $100 for 5 to 7 nights. If more than one week the fee maybe more. Make sure I reset your quote if you are only staying a few nights or more than one week. We love being pet friendly as we our dog lovers and hate to leave our companions behind; especially when we have to pay where they do not want to be. You may bring up to 3 dogs. We do not allow cats because of allergies.
The cleaning fee is based from 2-7 nights and maybe more beyond one week. Generally, each additional week will be additional $100 except for monthly rentals which will be quoted pending on the length of time and season.
