About the Property
The cottage is situated in the heart of Oak Island three blocks from the beach.
The cottage is situated in the heart of Oak Island four blocks from the beach and two blocks from the intracoastal waterway (four blocks from the boat ramp). The city park is one block away with lighted tennis courts, soccer fields, a basketball court, a skateboard park and a children's playground.
Oak Island is a very quiet family beach which has not seen any “strand development.” You are 40 minutes from historic Wilmington with fine restaurants and quaint antique shops, and 40 minutes from glitzy Myrtle Beach with nightclubs and entertainment theme parks, but nestled in the heart of National sea turtle preserves with the historic fort and lighthouse. Oak Island is a sea turtle refuge where you can watch the babies crawl from their nests each fall after hatching to begin their century trek across the ocean.
While Oak Island was formerly named Long Beach, because of its long beautiful beaches, it is now known as Oak Island because of the twisted live Oak Trees which surround our cottage and the island.
Our home is fully furnished with a huge stock of family board games, boogie boards, beach toys, nets for chasing crabs at night, and some fishing equipment. Bring your own golf clubs (the Island course is just a mile away) or tennis rackets (one block away).
The kitchen stays partially stocked with non-perishables, gourmet equipment, Brivelli espresso machine, stainless steel commercial sink (along with full sink on the island, and double refrigerator/freezer). There is an over/under washer dryer convenient located next to the bedrooms, and a large charcoal grill on the deck for grilling steaks on the barbie.
Each of the three bedrooms have queen beds, and the living room has a trundle twin set of daybeds. There is an inflatable double bed in one of the storage trunks, and the house has easily slept more than ten in the past. There are 11 custom built copper topped trunks which conveniently store linens, down comforters, beach towels, beach toys, extra paper products, sports equipment, and backup supplies. The trunks can be rolled together to make multiple extra beds.
This is not a standard rental house; it is our second home. I include this to emphasize that it is a personal oasis and a private home, not a rental unit. We own a 3 bedroom beach front house (which is a rental unit) 11 blocks away, which can be rented to double up for larger groups (we host our family reunion of 20 people in both houses each year). While the second house is beach frontage, it is a rental unit and very basic compared to this custom remodeled cottage.
Email and I will send you the Oak Island cottage guide I have developed for our guests with more information about our cottage and many activities and attractions in the area. We live 3 hours away and unfortunately will not be able to assist you in transportation. Raleigh International Airport (RDU) is 3 hours away, and you can get a commuter flight to Wilmington, but by the time you transfer, the drive from Raleigh is easier. Let me know if you have any questions.

Oak Island Turtles: The town of Oak Island is responsible for monitoring all sea turtle nesting activity within town limits of Oak Island, in North Carolina. Employees and volunteers with the town's Parks and Recreation Department conduct daily patrols of the nesting beach, marking all nests and protecting them during incubation. The monitoring program began in 1989, making this year the 24th anniversary of sea turtle conservation in Oak Island.
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: Happily married to the most wonderful woman on earth, enjoying the empty nest (but miss the kids), enjoying being able to leave my law firm in competent hands while I travel the world.
Why the Owner Chose Tranquil Harbour, Oak Island, NC, USA:
A great retreat on a comfortable 1950's island. No tourist hype.
