Cheerful 1 BR 5 Blocks to Beach ~ Quiet Neighborhood
average rating of 4.0 based on 22 reviews

Beautiful little house within walking distance to the beach. Delicious food close by as well.

  • 5 of 5

Our second time staying in the bungalow and we very much enjoyed our stay. The house is easy to access and close to the beach. All basic amenities are in the house and if you need something else the grocery store is not far. Numerous places to eat, both on the island and in Southport. Also, the kitchen has pots/pans/utensils so if you want to cook you can! Overall we had a great time and will definitely be back to this little house on Oak Island.

Near miss

  • 1 of 5

Urine type odor permeated the cottage. No amount of air freshener or candle or ac running got rid of it.

Owner's Response: This issue has been looked into. Ideally had we been made aware during your stay the caretaker could have dealt with the issue for you at the time making your and your pups stay more pleasant. Guest experience is important to us.

stay was okay but not for a winter visit

  • 3 of 5

The home was clean but wouldn't stay in the winter again. It was a cold windy night and the air came right through the window. Difficult to sleep with cold air on your head all night. Did contact owner and suggested a plastic over inside of windows to fix the problem.

I do wish the cable was not just basic but we did know that when I booked.

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.

Relaxing time!

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!

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.
