About Southport Realty
We live in Raleigh and as the children have grown, and are almost out of the house, we began to investigate our next destination. After discovering Southport we knew we had found what we were looking for. We love being so close to the water yet having a small town to call home. Being able to walk everywhere is an incredibly freeing family. When we found the "Tree House" it was magical. The poor house had been neglected and sat empty for over two years. Bringing it back to life has given us great joy. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
Southport Realty purchased this House in 2014
Why Southport Realty chose Southport
We love the antique charm to this house. The original door knobs and transom windows. The front and back porches and wood floors. But the tree in the back yard is what makes this property truly unique.

Nice historic home that was enjoyed by my family for a weekend trip. Walking distance to downtown Southport was a plus although weather was extremely humid so didn't walk as much as I would have liked. Short drive over to Oak Island. Finished with trip over to Bald Head.
Kitchen was stocked well with pots pans, dishes, etc. Very comfortable and home in general has been modernized. My only complaint was would have been nice to have 2 showers. Hadn't realized (my fault for not reading closely) that the second full bathroom on the main floor only had a tub (no shower). So for our group of 6 having to rotate through 1 shower was not ideal. But we made it work, and the large bathroom upstairs was very nice.
Nice house - would recommend!
Love love love!!!
Our family of eight had the BEST time at the Treehouse. It was beyond perfect! Beautiful furnishings, and my sister and I adored all of the antique and mermaid decor. The live Oak behind the home was even more glorious than described. So many extras in this house. Easily the most comfortable vacation we have ever had. Super close to everything we needed. When you stay here, you should visit the fresh seafood market 2 blocks down on 211. We cooked it ourselves, and it was the best seafood we've ever had.
If we ever come back this way, we will be staying here again! Don't hesitate to book this house.
Home Away from Home
The "Tree house" was the perfect location for our short stay in Southport. I was in town for a wedding and needed a place to stay for several days. My wife, two young daughters, and in-laws stayed in this home from Thursday to Sunday. The home was historic but had the necessary updates such as a washer/dryer, jet tube and stand alone shower, and direct tv, etc... The house was located two blocks from the main street in downtown Southport. We were able to walk to most locations. I would caution anyone that plans to rent this home of two things. 1) All of the bedrooms are upstairs. Therefore, if you have an elderly person with mobility issues with you, the trek up the stairs may be a challenge. This was not the case for our group. 2) There are two full bathrooms in the house. One is downstairs off from the kitchen but it only has a claw foot tub, no shower. The other bathroom which is fully equipped with a jet tub and stand alone shower, is located upstairs at the end of the hall. It's a great bathroom but you have to walk through it to get to the extra "tree house" room at the back. This is where my two daughters, 7 and 9, decided to sleep. It has a futon which can be used for sleeping and on either side of the room are built in, over-sized benches which one of my daughters used as a bed. They both loved that room. The issue was that there were no locks on the bathroom doors (at least I didn't see them) so we had to coordinate our showers carefully. It was no big deal for us but I feel that anyone considering renting this house should be aware of this situation. We would definitely consider this home again for future visits. My in-laws continued to express their happiness with the home during our stay. It truly felt like a home away from home.
We arrived late and the keys were placed where we could get them. The home was VERY clean and cool, (it was humid out). Had 0 problems all week and will definitely stay again. Constant communication from the property manager on small questions I had throughout the week. Could not have stayed in a better location. Thank you so much!
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay! I was happy to help you and answer questions. I look forward to helping you book a property again in the future!~Heather at Southport Realty

Easter Weekend in Southport
We always spend a long weekend in Southport to celebrate Easter. This was our first time staying in the Treehouse and we all loved it! The house is beautiful and has so much character. It is extremely clean and had everything we needed. We walked everywhere easily. We would love to stay here again! Thank you for sharing your home with us!
Thank you for your wonderful review! I hope to help you book your next Easter stay in Southport! ~Heather at Southport Realty
