About the Property

Grassy yard, enclosed wraparound deck, water views, 2 bedrooms, 1.5 baths

Paradise Found has undergone a facelift. She has a fresh coat of paint throughout as well as brand new carpet, refrigerator, and outdoor furniture! The cozy, raised cottage is well appointed with updated furnishings. She has a 360 degree wraparound deck/covered porch with great views of the Oak Island Lighthouse, the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, town of Southport, and the Cape Fear River.
The cottage is just across the street from a beach access walkway, so only a minute’s walk is required to get on the sand. There is no public parking allowed on this end of Caswell Beach Road, so only residents have access to the beach.
After a day on the beach, one can relax on the deck and then prepare dinner in the full kitchen or on the gas grill. At any time, feel free to grab a cold drink, sit in one of the comfortable chairs and watch the lights come on across the waterway in Southport.
Oak Island offers two fishing piers, two public marinas, three boat/canoe ramps, bike paths, and canoe trails. A grocery store, multiple seafood markets, cafes, bars and restaurants are also on the island and within a few minutes’ drive. Oak Island Golf Club is less than two miles down Caswell Beach Road.

Across the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, you’ll find the town of Southport. Southport is a charming southern coastal community with beautiful live oaks, a waterfront park, historic homes, a public arts center, excellent restaurants, galleries, and shops. You can also take a ferry ride to Bald Head Island for the day or an auto ferry to Fort Fisher Aquarium or keep going to explore historic Wilmington.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We love our pets and know you love yours too. That is why we decided to provide a place where your entire family can come and vacation! This cottage is a dream come true for our family. When the previous owner decided to sell, there was no question that she had to be ours. Caswell Beach is a hidden treasure and for those who are lucky enough to visit here, a "paradise found". We invite you to discover this little house known as "Paradise Found" and the beach she sits on!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Paradise Found is a cozy little cottage with a lot to offer. She sits on the marsh and is just across the street from a beautiful and quiet beach. You can view the sailboats, motorboats, and big cargo ships from her covered porch as they travel up and down the Cape Fear River and Inland Coastal Waterway. A two minute walk will bring you to the soft sand where you can stroll along as you watch the Dolphins play sometimes less than 50 feet from the shore. The water is very calm most days and offers an excellent place to paddle board, kayak, boogie board,or just swim. We think that a visit will have you realizing why we know her as "Paradise Found".
