Needs some TLC
This home has a great view and location on the beach. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and listening to the ocean. This is a home however, that needs some work. We had to call the company to fix the door and one of the gates on the deck. It rained and water was leaking in the patio door into the living room. You could see where there was water damage on the floor and wall around the door, including mold and mildew. The ice maker in the fridge didn't work, which is disappointing when you have 10 people staying in the house. The electrical outlet in the upstairs bathroom also didn't work. We were surprised that the bedrooms didn't have TV's (that isn't the reason we go to the beach; however, many beach homes have them). This could be a great vacation home if it gets some needed TLC.

Great Family Vacation
My family stayed here with my cousin and his family. So in total we had eight, four adults and four children, and had plenty of room for us all to move around. Can I complain about being so close to the water. also having an outside shower with cold and hot water was a plus. as our children decided that that's where they wanted to shower most of the time after spending the day down on the beach. Great location also everything was very well within distance. Note to self, if you're going to try and order pizza when you get down here to this house call on your way. I tried calling several times, 35 to be exact, before leaving and going to Pizza Shack to order. It was amazing. The only reason I give this 4 stars instead of 5 is because I felt the rental company could have left a few more flyers and Gadgets in the bag that they give you. after driving from an hour south of Atlanta in for the day a cold bottle of water would have been nice. But nothing against the owner, this is an amazing property with amazing views and great time to come. We have already discussed returning next year.

Beautiful views, great space for one or two families. Four bedrooms, great living space, and kitchen
Loved our stay at this property. Beautiful views, and house perfect for one or two families. Very clean and cute decor. Beds all comfortable and two rooms have ocean views. We would definitely stay here again.
My only thing I would recommend after staying at multiple VRBO and Airbnb I think for the price, it’s always a nice touch to have little things there when you pull in after traveling. Other rentals we have loved will have shampoo / conditioner to start or for the week and some basic starter items and even have a basic cleaner at the house. I think after a long travel - it’s a nice touch to have things like little snacks, water bottles, paper products, etc. For the rental price, I think this would be great and welcoming touch...
I also think it would be great to have a couple extra throw blankets at house-
Hi Dana! Thanks for taking the time to leave your awesome review. I hope your vacation here on Oak Island was everything and more! Although our kitchens are fully equipped, we do not supply toiletries, food or paper products in our units. We do however provide one roll of paper towel, a roll of tissue paper and one dishwasher detergent to get you started :)
Great place for a large family. Beautiful Beach House!
This was the first time I have ever used homeaway.com. we were very pleased with this house. Right on the beach. Close to shops, resturants, and grocery stores. We have 5 children all the way from College to a four year old this place was perfect for all ages. The beach was not crowded in any way. So it was nice not be somewhere crowded. I personally do not have much to complain about however, the only thing I will have to say is for a home not allowing dogs there was a bit of dog hair on the comforters upstairs and carpet. Personally, that was not a huge deal to us because we understand because we are lovers of furbabies. The kitchen was fully equiped so it made cooking easier. It was a lovely kitchen to cook our Easter dinner. A suggestion I would make would to definately come prepared. Bring toilette paper, paper towels, dish soap, laundry soap, spices you need for cooking, and trash bags. We literally brought everything, but teepee, and paper towels. We would definately recommend this home to stay in and would love to return for another visit.

Beautiful, relaxing,wonderful time
My 3 BFF and I decided to do a ladies ONLY beach vacation. Two of the ladies have recently experienced life changing events. This was our time to "unplug and reset". This beach house was the answer to our prayers.
The house is beautifully decorated and offered everything we needed to make it our home for a few days.
I would love to return with my grandkids someday.
Thanks for sharing
Nice House & Nice Beach... But...
The house was nice but our stay was fair. We enjoyed the beach & surroundings. The 15 minute drive to Southport is worth it too. However, we had multiple issues with the maintenance of the house.
The biggest issue were roaches. We averaged 3 a day (except for Friday, we had Zero) They were on the kitchen counter. They were in the silverware drawer. They were on the walls. We bagged all of our food & wiped counters etc. I am not including the 6-8 we killed on the back deck as part of my tally. Based on prior beach excursions, I expected occasional bug issues. In my opinion, this was a bit much. Really grossed my wife & kids out.
The sliding back door to the deck was broken & unable to slide open after our first day. It was broken prior to our arrival & was extremely difficult to slide, then it stopped working completely. We called maintenance when we first arrived. He was aware the door was broken & mentioned they had ordered a replacement part. I guess they don't use Amazon Prime for parts, six days later...door still unable to be used. Not the end of the world, but an annoyance.
Wifi did not work the first 24 hours. When maintenance came to look at the door I mentioned the wifi issue. Apparently they were switching wifi providers & they forgot to switch out our router. He replaced our router the next day. However, wifi service was spotty the rest of the week. Again, not the end of the world, but an unneeded hassle.
Other minor issues noticed upon arrival: moldy coffee grounds left in coffee maker, broken light fixture in upstairs bathroom, hand towel loop in downstairs bathroom kept falling off the wall. Not a big deal.
If it weren't for the roaches and the door... I would have given 5 stars. The house is very nice & a perfect size for the 6 adults & 2 toddlers in our group. The beach was great & not over crowded. If you are a dog lover, this is the beach for you. Lot's of dogs & people were responsible with them. When I booked the rental, I felt it was a fair price for a beachfront rental
We spent most of our non beach time in the Southport area. Cool downtown & waterfront. Good restaurants & things to do. Shagger Jacks on Oak Island had great food too. (They get very busy though... tough with 2 small children) If you enjoy a cigar, I would recommend Havana Rays on Southport Supply Road. Nice selection & the guy that runs it (Ray?) is very nice too.
All in all we enjoyed our stay.
