Property description

HURRICANE MATTHEW UPDATE:
Thank you to everyone who has written asking about our home after Matthew. Our house is absolutely fine, just needed a few minor deck repairs. I don't think any homes were destroyed in this storm, but the island has suffered major sand shifts, with most of the dunes now gone and tons of sand under the houses and on the streets. Thank you so much for your concerns and thoughts! You are the BEST renters!!!

How often can you feel the ocean mist tickle your toes while sitting on a covered porch, over looking the Atlantic? Or yell up your lunch order from the sand and know someone in the kitchen can hear it and tend to it perfectly? Well, it's not quite that good, but pretty darn close at Back to the Beach on Oak Island. Our sweet, sunny, happy home is literal steps from the back door to the water and the closeness to the ocean creates an unforgettable experience for those who make it their home while visiting Oak Island. Everything just seems easier; no dreaded long walk dragging your every need for the day through hot sand, no fighting over who has to go back to the house to refill the cooler. And when the day is done, you can go straight from the beach to the shower with our fully enclosed, heated water outdoor shower(because -who really wants to clean sand out of tubs while on vacation,anyway?!)

Back to the Beach is a short 0.2 of a mile from Middleton Road, which is the middle of the island. To the East is restaurants, shopping, ice cream and putt putt . To the West , marina, fishing, crabbing, and watching the sun set so close to you, you feel you could reach out and touch it. The beautiful, new Lowes grocery store on 211 is just minutes from our house! And if you arrive on Oak Island from 211 South, you can count on shaving 25 minutes off your drive by cutting 'Long Beach' in half because of the new Middleton bridge.

If relaxed, carefree days with family and friends is what you are looking for in your beach vacation this year, then look no more. Back to the Beach has you covered - from amenities, to comfort, to making memories that will last a lifetime, it's all a few clicks away! See more photos at 'Back to Beach' board on Pinterest!

Amenities: 5 Bedrooms/ 2 Baths: 1 King, 3 Queens, 3 Singles. 6 CCTVs, 3 DVD players, VCR, wireless internet access, ceiling fans throughout, booster seat, board games and puzzles, Enclosed outdoor shower w/ hot & cold, covered porch with rockers. Hammock located under ocean front deck for guests' enjoyment. Nightly rentals available w/ 3 night minimum off season only. 3 pets allowed. Direct Beach Access at foot of walkway from house to beach. SUNDAY TO SUNDAY weekly rentals.

Location

213 W. Beach Drive, Oak Island, NC. Our house is not far past Middleton Road - perfect location! West Beach, quiet, family area, but right in the middle of the island, where either side of the island is easy to get to. We have an empty lot beside us, so the beach is practically all ours. Access is literally at the bottom of our walkway. You will love how easy things are at Back to the Beach!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: The owners of Back to the Beach are three families who love the Atlantic Coast and particularly love Oak Island with its simple charm and natural beauty. We all live within a couple of hours of each other, have been lifelong friends, and enjoy time together at Back to the Beach making lifelong memories.

Why the Owner Chose Oak Island, NC, USA:
We vacationed on Oak Island for years and fell in love with it's simple, small town charm, affordability and beautiful, clear beaches. We love how the island offers a perfect mix of ocean/sand/salt air and marsh/oaks/pines. And we find something new to enjoy from all of the wildlife, natural scenery and activity that both sides of the island brings, every time we visit. Oak Island is one of the most friendly places we have ever vacationed. The locals here love the renters and it shows! We enjoy not having to wait too long for a dinner reservation or fight traffic to get where we are going. It's a family style, casual beach that treats you like one of the family and yet it is close enough to Wilmington and Myrtle that if you want the things larger beach cities offer, they are easily within reach. We love the history, restaurants and shopping in Southport. On the island there is golf, tennis, a skate park, natural areas and walking trails, marina with deep sea fishing - Oak Island truly has it all!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
When we began looking for vacation properties, Back to the Beach was the first house the realtor showed us. We looked at each other and said 'This will be hard to beat.' Its sunny, happy, light-hearted feeling captivated us from the moment we walked in. And when we stepped onto the oceanfront deck and realized we could practically FEEL the ocean on our face - we were sold! We love the layout of the home and how the whole main floor is a panoramic view of the ocean.The bedrooms are large and spacious. And being on West Beach close to Middleton and the new bridge is a top spot on the island! But what do we love most? How exclusive the beachfront feels in front of our house! Maybe it is the empty lot to the right of ours that makes us feel like we scored our own private beach on Oak Island? We don't know. But when we are here, we really get a sense that we have gotten away from it all and this little piece of heaven is all ours!
