Week of Oak Island - Great little house!

  • 4 of 5

Great little house. We stayed a week on Oak Island during the busy season. The house is a short walk to the public beach access, but on a very quiet street. Short walk to restaurants and coffee shops. Highly recommend The Flying Pig coffee shop! The house was very comfortable, clean and well-equipped. The covered outdoor patio was fantastic for eating outside and relaxing in the evening. My only recommendation would be putting an overhead fan on the outdoor patio - would really help with air flow on very hot days since the yard is surrounded by a high privacy fence. Thanks for a great week!

Oak Island, NC

The best rental on the island!

  • 5 of 5

Our week stay in the Charming Beach Cottage was the best of all our trips down to OINC (this was our 4th). The place was lovely, clean, well stocked, the queen size bed was fabulous, the yard was perfect for our dog, location couldn't have been better. The owners couldn't have been nicer to deal with and if a problem arose, it was taken care of immediately. The neighbors are quite and friendly. I highly recommend staying here.

Great Place for a Great Price!

  • 5 of 5

This was mine and my husbands first vacation together besides our Honeymoon and we couldn't be more glad that we picked this home to stay in. We loved that we could bring our dog along with us to enjoy our first little family vacation! (This was her first beach trip and she loved every second of it) I think it is safe to say that we spent more time outside on the patio than we did inside the house. The fenced yard and outdoor setup were perfect for relaxing with our pup after day at the beach.

Our only regret was not renting the golf cart that Steven had offered, but there was always ample parking down at the beach access. We did both, drive and walk to the beach. The walk is not bad at all and I can honestly say I enjoyed the walk down to the beach, but the walk back wasn't my favorite which is why we would drive sometimes.

We absolutely loved our time here and our interactions with owners were also great. We hope to return one day!

Great for pet owners

  • 4 of 5

This was a great option for us with our dogs and we enjoyed the patio and they loved fenced yard. The house is small but nicely furnished and very comfortable although the bathroom is really small with no tub and would be very crowded for 4 people to try to use. Very very basic cable but good Wifi signal so we streamed some shows on a rainy day and late evenings. Although it is close to a Food Lion and several restaurants and shops, the house is further from the beach than it appeared on the map (6 blocks?) and you have to cross a busy road to get there so not as easy a walk as we thought from map and reviews. There's not much parking at any of the beach access points so for someone with small children or who couldn't walk this long a distance that could be challenging in high season. Had never been to Oak Island and it's definitely laid back and nice change from the more commercialized beaches in South Carolina. Great local seafood a plus!

It really is a charming cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Great place! The owners are very pleasant and easy to work with. The house is well maintained and is well furnished. The fenced yard was a real plus since we had our dog with us. Nice patio. Convenient location - easy walk to the beach. We really enjoyed our stay here!

We wanted to tour Oak Island and the surrounding areas but, also to be able to bring our 2 dogs. The fenced yard was perfect for us to be able to leave them if we needed to and, the neighbors were very friendly.
