Home away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent location for a beach vacation! We arrived to a nice, clean, cozy home that was literally across the street and steps from the beach front. We brought our "boys" with us on their first vacation and it was truly nice to include our entire family. We made use of the grill and the porches, which our boys thought was just for them. It's actually very quiet and an excellent family derived area, we will definitely come back for another stay!

a good value if only the internet/cable TV worked

  • 3 of 5

Overall for the price and location, it is a good value. But we never had any cable TV access, it was so spotty it was hardly worth bothering with. The internet super slow and drove my college age son bonkers! there were other minor inconveniences, such as no corkscrew or bottle opener (!) and the kitchen sparsely equipped but hey who cares when you're steps from a beautiful beach. I do feel like the problems we had with the TV and internet could have been better addressed. We come here every summer and so I have seen a lot of rental properties here and it is too bad, we all thought the place had a lot of potential.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. We looked into the issue while you were there and continued after you left. Ultimately after many discussions with Spectrum Cable, the issue had to do with the changeover from Time Warner to Spectrum and their equipment upgrades. We did end up replacing ALL of our internet and cable equipment soon after you left, and all of the issues you experienced are now a thing of the past. The internet speed and range are better than they have ever been and assuredly will meet your expectations. We have also done a thorough review of kitchen supplies and restocked items that "became missing" over the course of the summer. Additionally, winter renovations will be ongoing, and this unit will be even better to meet (and exceed) its potential for the next season. I hope that you will give us a try next season, and thank you again for the review!

Property needs TLC

  • 2 of 5

This rental is indeed just steps away from the ocean which is a great convenience. And the owner was very prompt in responding to my requests for assistance -even early, early on a Sunday morning. Thank you, Tom. Unfortunately, this rental desperately needs some TLC. There are torn screens in several places. A blind is completely missing from one of the windows in the "great" room. Blinds are damaged elsewhere. Lights have burnt out on a number of ceiling fixtures. Air conditioning doesn't sufficiently air condition the bedrooms when doors are closed (for privacy, of course). Knobs are missing on chest of drawers. Beds were most comfortable though. Forget about a trip to Redbox for a movie. There is no DVD player in this unit. The TV package with the unit is a good one and I was able to rent a movie after opening a free account on Vudu. Unfortunately, the TV continually freezes so that often the picture doesn't match the sound. We enjoyed the front porch. However, there are no side tables to set drinks on. We brought a stool in from the kitchen counter to serve as a side table. One of the porch chairs also broke while we were there. Being in the 60 and older crowd, it wasn't from rough-housing. We also loved the back deck and enjoyed breakfasts and dinners there as well as a spectacular sunset. The gas grill is a nice bonus, too. The weather was fabulous. The beach is...well, the beach! Great eating and shopping are available in abundance on Oak Island as well as in nearby Southport and Wilmington. But the unit appears to have been upfitted as cheaply as possible...and it shows.

Access to Ocean is fabulous

  • 4 of 5

Just step across the street and you're on the beach. You can see and hear the beach from the front porch. The two queen bedrooms has wonderfully comfortable beds and the 2nd bedroom has a stacked washer/dryer in it. There are no closets but hooks are provided on the doors to hang a couple things. The kitchen is large and very well furnished with anything you would need for cooking. Wifi was at at times slow so watching Netflix was a little frustrating but nothing I would not have expected really. I don't think it has really been totally renovated because some blinds are very damaged and the porch was equipped with only 3 chairs moved there from the outdoor table on the back deck. The AC worked great, the fans worked great and the owner is attentive and responded quickly to the couple questions I had. If you're looking for a home that serves all your needs, is clean and so close to the beach, this is it. If you're looking for adorable and modern, you will be disappointed. Overall, it was a great 10 days and truly is just steps from the ocean so no need to carry that huge bunch of stuff everyone else has to lug over to the beach!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. It's fair and comprehensive. We have added 4 new porch rocking chairs, and are in the process of replacing the blinds that were showing some age. Thank you again for your review!
