About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Come stay at the Gollywobbler, our family-friendly Oak Island beach house. Our house is a block and a half from the beach and has fantastic ocean views due to its street-corner location. We have three decks that face the ocean, two of them up high on the second floor - maybe you'll even see a gollywobbler! Our covered back deck looks out over a beautiful tidal marsh.

The main floor has a full kitchen with a table for eight. We like to cook so you will find all the tools you need including a large pot for crab or shrimp boils! The living room has new hardwood floors and plenty of books and board games for your family. Both the kitchen and living room have plenty of windows and adjoin a large deck. A covered deck just off the kitchen is a great place to enjoy your coffee or a meal.

There are two bedrooms and a bathroom on the main floor. One room has a new queen bed and the other has two singles. The main-floor bathroom has a tiled floor and tiled tub and shower.
Upstairs, both of the two bedrooms have queen beds. Each upstairs room has a private deck with an ocean view. The upstairs bathroom has a shower.

We keep a lot of beach toys which you are welcome to use. Try our surfboard at the beach, or paddle our canoe around the marsh if you like.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: The Gollywobbler is offered by the families of three siblings; Eric and Max Rosentreter, and Lydia Bangert. Eric's family lives in Mooresville, NC, Max's in Raleigh, NC, and Lydia's in Pinckney, Michigan.

Why the Owner Chose Oak Island, NC, USA:
Oak Island is a quiet, family-friendly beach town. Since the beach faces South, we get a nice sunset every evening. There are no high rises to obscure the view!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love to visit the beach. Since our house is so close to the marsh, we get to see plenty of dolphins, egrets and crabs too.
