About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath close to waterway

You will love our Oak Island house for your home away from home as much as we do! After a day of fun in the sun, return home to our quiet three bedroom, two bath cottage. Get a good night's sleep as you enjoy the newly updated bedrooms that include luxury queen size memory foam mattresses.

For the kids, a special bedroom for them includes two win beds. The kids will love having their own TV with a Playstation 2 with games, DVD player and movies to entertain themselves on rainy days or just for some downtime. We keep an assortment of boardgames for quality family fun.

Our cozy living room has HDTV with complimentary Netflix, Amazon Prime and iHeart Radio. Use any of your portable devices on our wifi to post your favorite pictures on social media. Adjoining the living room is our kitchen that is well equipped for your meals. Enjoy the evening breeze on our covered porch or cookout on the grill provided.

Our cottage is centrally located to all the local attractions Oak Island has to offer. Take an early morning walk or catch the evening sunset at the Malcolm Register Park on the Intracoastal Waterway. Next to the park, you and the family will enjoy the Nature Center and have an adventure through the wooded trails as you explore the local habitat. Bring your boat or jet skis, the public boat access is only one block away. You can walk to beach shops and restaurants and it's only a short five minute drive to the beach, skate park, playground and mini golf!

About Lynda Hepler

Hi! We are the Hepler's from Thomasville, NC. My parents built this home back in 1998 and it's our getaway at the beach! We are representing the house for my parents online and would love to have you stay and enjoy the family atmosphere of Oak Island that we have come to love.

Lynda & Philip Hepler

Lynda Hepler purchased this house in 1998

Why Lynda Hepler chose Tranquil Harbour

My first visit to Oak Island was when I was 10 years old. I remember seeing the ocean and feeling the sand between my toes for the very first time. Oak Island is known for it's family friendly, non-commercial atmosphere and our family fell in love with the place immediately! After years of looking at properties, my parents decided to purchase land and build their own house. Finally in 1998, construction began and soon we had our own little piece of heaven at the beach.

What makes this house unique

Our house sits in a quiet neighborhood, on a nice high lot with plenty of shade and is just a short walk to the waterway. It's so nice to be able to take our girls out and bike around the neighborhood or go to the park. The neighbors are always so friendly and welcoming and you'll immediately feel at home.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Lynda, We had a great weekend and you have an amazing house. We are thankful to have used it and it has great proximity to everything! It was a great time with friends!

Shining environment with all the necessary appointments.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely place for two weeks and enjoyed ourselves immensely spending a great deal of time in the home itself because it was so pleasurable. Lynda and Philip thought of everything that would make you feel comfortable. The location on Oak Island is also very favorable for getting around. We loved the trees that provided a little bit of shade and lots of birds for early morning listening. Sitting on the deck while the sun was coming up was a wonderful treat. Just lovely!

peaceful place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The house was super clean and a very peaceful neighborhood. We had a problem with the a/c not working when we arrived, but we contacted the owner and within a couple of hours the repairmen was there and the a/c was fixed within minutes. The owner was very quick to respond and took care of the problem, and this was on a Friday afternoon after 5:00. Super nice people to work with.

Great Location. Just right for short notice Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very responsive and great to work with on short notice. The house was very nice and met our needs. The location was ideal being close to all the shops/restaurants. The cleaning service could be a little better, but overall was good. Took some time to figure out the A/C/Heat controls but finally got it. We enjoyed our stay.
