About Liz Hoffman

I have lived on Oak Island off and on for 25 years. It always feels like home and I hope when you visit it will feel the same way to you.

Perfect bungalow!

We really enjoyed staying here! The furniture and bed were comfy. Loved the screened in porch. All the little extras were noticed and appreciated. We will stay here again!

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The cabana was clean and in a quiet area. Unfortunately is was cloudy and rainy but was still walked on the beach and enjoyed some wonderful seafood. We are looking forward to making another trip back.

Perfect size for 2 people and our pooch! Very cozy, clean and a quiet area. Very close to new bridge for day excursions to Southport and other near by places. Liz, was very helpful with any questions we had and responded so quickly! Would certainly stay again and would recommend. Thanks again, Liz!

Summer vacation

  • 4 of 5

The property was on a very quiet street. We stayed here for two weeks and really enjoyed our vacation. We had everything we needed with dishes and pans. We could get around Oak Island to the restaurants and the beach. It is small but for two people it was plenty of room. Liz answered all of our questions before the trip and always got back to us immediately. She included places to see and places to eat....we felt very welcomed. Thanks for sharing your place with us!

Oak Island is a year round Beach Community with great locally owned restaurants, coffee shop and fresh fish market. Being a South Facing beach the sun rises and sets over the water depending on the time of your you see one or the other or both. Wide beaches make for great shelling, fishing, and sunbathing or join a game of beach volleyball.Nearby you can take a ferry to Bald Head, a bicycle and golf cart only resort, or to Carolina Beach and Fort Fisher Aquarium and historic battle grounds.
