Perfect for our friends and family!
This house is in a great location! Close to the grocery and restaurants. It’s just across the street from the beach access and there’s plenty of ocean view because there aren’t many houses in front (yet).
We went with our family of 4 and another family of 4 (all kids under 5) and the proximity to the beach without paying ocean front prices is great! The size of the house is cozy for 8 but not cramped. The front porch was a favorite!
A few things we wished were different and I’m sure would be easily changed...
There’s no spout/hose outside, only a shower. Would have been nice to have to wash chairs and beach gear.
There wasn’t a grill (as advertised).
The kitchen doesn’t have a pantry area so all our non-cold food had to sit on the counter. Just felt messy/cluttered.
All that to say, we really did love this place and will probably go back!

Location! Location! Location!
A Beach Heaven is in an excellent location. Beautiful view and easy access to beach. Close to every thing. You can park your car and leave it parked. Stores and restaurants are accessible by walking or biking. I wish the owners would update the porch furniture. The chairs were broken. I would like to see a little more TLC put into the house. I love spending the week at this house but hope to see improvements done for next year.
Know the Facts
While this is a nice place to stay, it has some false advertising that comes with it. I booked this rental under the assumption there would be a private pool and a grill that came along with the house. It is advertised on VRBO.com as having these things but however per the Better Beach Rentals company after I called to inquire they said, "the owner of the property must have advertised that, as we do not have this advertised on OUR website". Well, after booking this through VRBO.com, the only instructions I got were to confirm my payment through the VRBO.com website and electronically sign a lease. I had to call the company both times to confirm these details as well as where to pick up the keys, etc. After I made my first complaint about the no pool/no grill, they offered me pool passes to a nearby local pool and to drop off a grill, as well as whatever they could do to make up for the confusion. I proposed some money back since one of the reasons I booked the house was because of the pool. They took my number down to "talk to the manager" and never called me back. The next day when we really did need a grill they made us come pick it up, and when we got back to the house we realized it was filthy. Along with this they didn't even give us something to clean it with. I will never rent from this company again, and would advise others not to as well. It is a shame since the house is very nice, however renters are forced to pay a certain price for something they are fooled into believing they are getting, and then once it is too late, they are compensated with mediocre things and extra duties that they should not have to do ON VACATION. Companies that in their title imply they are "better" should do their fact checking before advertising on other websites other than their own. It is not my problem that the owner of the home we are staying at lied about what they had to offer. As a company you should offer better compensation than a dirty grill.
Great Home, Bad Rental Company
Overall, this rental home was great for our short stay in Oak Island. It was very true to the photographs, clean and well maintained. The best part was the unobstructed views of the beach (even though it's a second row home) and the beach access just steps from the front door. You can hear and see the waves from the front porch rockers. You really can't beat the location! We also loved the home's outdoor shower for getting rid of sand before heading in the house. However, I would not use this rental company again - Better Beach Rentals. When we arrived at the rental office at 4:30pm on Saturday, we were told that the home was not quite ready and to come back at 5:00pm (the guaranteed time for check-in). No big deal. We decided to kill time on the nearby pier and check out the beach. We then went back to the rental office a few minutes after 5:00pm and picked up the keys. When we got to the home, however, the cleaning crew was still there. They said something about a mix up and not realizing that people were checking in that evening. They said it would only be 15-20 minutes more, so we unloaded our car and waited on the front porch. We ended up waiting for nearly an hour. Finally, a few minutes after 6:00pm, they finally said they were done. At that time, I sent an email (couldn't call because they were closed) to the rental company letting them know that I was disappointed in the fact that we had to wait an extra hour to get into our home since check-in was guaranteed for 5:00pm. I never received a response from them. No apology. Nothing. It's really a shame because the home was so great. When I return to Oak Island, I won't use this rental company again.
