Lovely home so close to the beach!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this well-stocked home just a few steps from the beach. There was plenty of space for our family of 5 and everything was clean and nicely furnished. We loved being so close to the ocean and the proximity of the house to Southport for evening fun. The gazebo out front was a nice way to end the day.

Clean and Quaint

  • 5 of 5

A group of 8 ladies spent the night here to attend a conference at Fort Caswell. Look no further for a place to stay. So quaint, beautifully decorated, cotton quilts on every bed! Prettier than the pictures. Big grass yard, easy stroll to the beach. 5 bedrooms, adorable outside shower. I would love to come back with another family. just lovely. And so easy to rent, no rental company to go to. Comfy living room furniture, games... everything you could want.

super stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time in this wonderful home. The house is less than a block from the beach access. At first I was worried about the lack of pictures of the kitchen and bathrooms....however, in reality, the house is terrific! It may not have updated everything....but its a wonderful place for a family to visit. The decor is beachy and lovely. The kitchen and bathrooms were more than fine. We appreciated how well stocked the kitchen was for cooking....there were lots of dishes, baking & cookware, etc. the beds were very comfortable and the bedding was lovely. Plus, the owner is so easy to work with and very flexible and helpful. I would recommend this home and look forward to returning someday soon.

Great week!

  • 5 of 5

This place was great for two families with children and grandparents. We had a blast! The owners allowed us access to a shed of beach gear that took our beach time from good to great. While the house isn't RIGHT on the beach, it's as close as you can get otherwise. It was just right for us.

Oak Island is a narrow island with 13 miles of beaches with a public fishing pier. The island is located near the mouth of the Cape Fear river which leads to Wilmington the major seaport in North Carolina. Southport, a small village located at the mouth of the river is approximately 10 miles away. It is a historic area (oldest port in North Carolina) and has shopping, antiquing and restaurants. Ferrys depart from Southport across the river to Fort Fisher and the North Carolina aquarium and to Bald Head Island. Bald Head island is a residential, ecologically protected environment with no cars but bike rentals are available.

Oak Island offers public tennis courts and one golf course is located on the island with many others nearby. A small private airport is just off the island and offers plane tours and parachuting. A marina is located near our house and offers boat and jet ski rentals, sunset cruises, deep sea fishing and has a very nice restaurant.

Oak Island is approximately one hour north of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The Myrtle Beach area offers shopping, numerous restaurants, live music shows, night life and is renowned for its numerous golf courses. We are approximately 45 minutes south of Wilmington, NC

Our neighborhood has wonderful, friendly people who can help you learn about the area.
