About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)

This house is an absolute gem! Do not let the affordable price of John's Crab Shack fool you! Nestled on a wooded corner lot, this three-bedroom home is just a quick five-minute scenic walk (paved sidewalk) from the recently-renourished beaches of Oak Island. With two living rooms both equipped with TVs, DVD, and VCRs, separate dining room, attached playroom and fenced in backyard, John's Crab Shack's new owners have lovingly redecorated with your perfect vacation in mind!

John's Crab Shack is waiting to help you create a relaxing vacation full of cherished memories. Enjoy yourself under the shady oaks of the fenced-in backyard. Take a cruise around the island on one of the owner-provided beach bikes. Load up the beach cart and stroll over the tidal creek to the beautiful beach or try your hand at surf fishing. Wash the sand from your feet in the private outdoor shower. Put an umbrella in your drink and grab a book as you relax in the shady backyard. Whip up a gourmet meal in the well-stocked kitchen or grill out on the back-yard deck. Take a family portrait on the red couch with the hand painted mural as a backdrop. For a rainy day, John's Crab Shack comes equipped with plenty of games, puzzles, and books to keep the whole family entertained. If that is not enough, then take a short drive to historic Southport to visit museums, art galleries, historic homes and then dine in one of Southports many excellent restaraunt . For day trips, historic downtown Wilmington is only 40 minutes, Myrtle Beach is an easy 1 hour drive or take a scenic ferry ride to exclusive Bald Head Island. There is also a convienience store just one block away on the way to the beach.


With plenty of room to spread out or get together for a family dinner, John's Crab Shack is truly a great family vacation home. The beaches of Oak Island are waiting for you...
