About Beatrice H
We are beach lovers-and my friends call me the Sweet Queen of the Turtle Kingdom because we have seen three 300 pound loggerhead turtles lay their nests walking distance from the cottage! We help our interested guests know when turtle nests hatch, etc. My husband and I love walking the beach at sunset, and our family and friends enjoy visiting us on the large deck!
Beatrice H purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Beatrice H chose Yaupon Beach
We wanted a cottage by the sea. This one has no neighbors between us and the ocean and no close neighbors on either side. We love the open, panoramic view that can be seen from all the rooms in the house. The L-shaped deck allows us to choose a spot with the perfect breeze and temperature all year round. We searched for over 10 years to find this dream location and charming cottage. Our neighbor two houses away was featured on HGTV on Island Life. All our guests notice that we have a "back to nature" feeling, but are really close to absolutely anything you might need on a vacation.
What makes this Cottage unique
The options with this cottage are endless. If you want to just relax, many of our guests enjoy the deck all day long. If you want adventure, you can rent bikes, kayaks, paddle boards (phone number on fridge) or even jump out of plane. You can take airplane and helicopter tours, explore charming South Port, shop in Myrtle Beach or take the Ferry to many locations, including Bald Head Island. There are many fabulous restaurants, and you can even find an art class just a few blocks away! Be sure to provide us a phone number we can reach during your vacation.

A Wonderful Respite!
This cozy house has everything from warm lights to fresh flowers. But the view of the ocean from so many different windows is what takes your breath away. We saw sunrises over the ocean and sunsets. The colors in the sunsets were amazing! The front deck is perfect for relaxing and reflecting and praying. I couldn't help but worship as we walked down the beach or took a quick swim. We came in November and still went swimming. It was cold, but super fun. I love the way the living room and kitchen are arranged. The ocean is the main draw to the eye. We had coffee at the little yellow table every day. I want to say a special thanks to the owners who let us stay here! It was just what we needed.
Hello there! It fills our hearts with joy that you had such an amazing time. And yes, we also went swimming in October! For some reason October was not cold this year. But isn’t that November swim refreshing? So glad you enjoyed the amazing sunrise and sunset positioning of our home and our beach. The sun literally rises and sets right over the ocean! So glad you enjoyed the special touches at our cottage—and that this was restorative and renewing week for you. Stay blessed. And you are very welcome back! Sincerely, the owners
Great place to stay
We spent a very pleasant four days in this house on the beach at Oak Island. It has everything you need, great beds, a well equipped kitchen, a nicely decorated and comfortable living area, and a responsive owner. . It is just one dune away from one of the nicest beaches in NC. There is a good restaurant (KoKo Canbana) an easy walk away and a first class Italian Grill (Josephs) just a few miles away. We enjoyed watching the deer and waves from the front porch. In short we highly recommend this terrific beach house and hope to come back soon.
The house was great, was better than what we expected. everything you needed was there. Location perfect, few steps from the beach, it was awesome! You will not be disappointed staying here. The owners were great also. . We will definitely be staying here again!
We’re always tickled when we exceed our guests’ expectations. So glad you’ll come again! Thank you for taking great care of our place. How about those baby turtles?
Cozy home with incredible views.
We loved this beach house. It has a large window in the living room where you can see the ocean from the living room and kitchen constantly. Also great ocean viewing in the bedroom windows. The home is clean and comfortable. There is a nice restaurant in walking distance. We got to see sea turtles released to the ocean while on our visit and knew about the nests information from the owners. They gave lots of detailed information on how to see them. We loved our stay here and would stay here again.
It just thrills us that you got to experience the baby turtles. The big 350 pound loggerhead mothers come in during May, June and July in the evening around 11 PM and later. And that is about what time most of our baby turtles come out-although it is mother nature and these times always vary. 400 baby turtles hatched last night on just the Caswell Beach side of our amazing island. So happy you saw them and overjoyed you enjoyed the house! Come again soon and thank you for taking such good care of our place.
We'll be back
Beautiful location. You're only 30 seconds from the warm waves! The cottage has a great wraparound deck with spectacular views all day long. Zero complaints about the process, the location...I probably shouldn't recommend it too strongly or it will stay booked all year long.
So glad you had such an amazing time. It is nice to be 30 seconds from the waves! And that sound all the time.! Ahhh, the waves! It never gets old. We hope you’ll come back soon. Have a blessed day.
Heaven on earth on Oak Island!
Can't say enough good things about this house, the location and communication with Beatrice! The house size is perfect for a family of 4 and 2 dogs. The views are phenomenal from every room and the deck so even when we weren't on the beach we still enjoyed it. The flowers were a nice added touch...it felt like home! We were fortunate to see baby turtles thanks to Beatrice's updates . Looking forward to our next visit!
Thank you so much for the kind words and the amazing review. We were tickled to help you find a turtle nest and so happy that you got to enjoy this amazing phenomenon of nature from our beach. You took such good care of our place! And you’re always welcome back.
Joseph’s restaurant is fabulous -with a view of boats. Also, Southport is only 8 miles away and the restaurants and atmosphere is amazing there-like a mini Charleston. I would recommend the famous Fishy Fishy or Provisions company-right on the water. The absolute most magical day trip is to take the ferry from Southport to Bald Head Island. Rent a golf cart and see the whole place—just amazing.
If history is your thing, there are war forts at Fort Caswell. If you want to book a day to climb the light house, you have to do that in advance.
Guests personally watched turtle nests 8 and 9 being laid on June 1st. It is about 60 days until the boil. The mother turtles were about 300 pounds. Nest number one hatched on July 16th. Nest number 47 (Norton Street two blocks over) hatched on September 2nd, 2017 and guests were there to watch 112 baby turtles race to the sea. Check the Rec. Center for more information. Or check Caswell Beach Turtle watch for all updates on-line.
Fish and seafood caught that morning in our sea is available at Pelican Seafood—just go left a few blocks on Oak Island Dr.- 910-454-8477.
We recommend Thai by the Sea. If you eat organic, order the Beatrice Special.
