My husband and I bought this house to provide a gathering spot for our family so that we could enjoy the ocean and boating activities. The large driveway provides plenty of room for boats and for children to play; the relaxing sounds of the ocean and the sea buoy force us to slow down and take it easy.

Carolyn Hackett purchased this cottage in 1998

This location is close to the Blue Water Point Marina, 'The Point' and the beach. While our cottage is not ocean front, the walk is short. The beach is usually a quiet, family-friendly spot with plenty of space to claim as your own to enjoy.

We love the sound of the breaking waves and the sound of the ocean buoy guiding boats into the Lockwood Folly Inlet. We also love the sightings we often have of dolphins, pelicans, and boats. It is a great place from which we watch sunsrises, sunsets and the stars.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
Great week here with 2 sons and families! MW accommodated a family with a 15 month old, a family with 3 active boys in the side suite which was great and Nana & Poppy! We slept well, played hard, ate heartily, and enjoyed both ocean and sound.
The availability of both was a big bonus for us!
The cottage was all as promised by the Owners; the kitchen is so well stocked with pots, pans, dishes, etc. that it was hard to find room for non-refrigerated groceries. Might weed a bit there, but don't touch anything else----it is a great family cottage!

WHAT A GREAT TRIP!

  • 5 of 5
We had a beautiful time last weekend, the kitchen was well-stocked, the house was clean and well maintained. The owners were incredibly responsive when there were problems with the air conditioning, it was fixed within a couple of hours, but with the ocean breezes we were never uncomfortable. I would definitely return over and over again!

WONDERFUL TRIP!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was just great. Very comfortable and spacious. My mother uses a walker and she could get around the house with no problem. Easy access to the beach too. We will definitely be back.

ANOTHER GREAT BEACH WEEK

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our second year for a beach week at Mariners Watch and again found the property to have everything we needed. the layout is nice with 2 BRs on 1 side, 2 BRs on the other and living space in between. The photos and description are accurate. The property was clean, well maintained and well stocked. The outside shower is nice, there is a clothes line outside for hanging wet towels and suits. More beach toys, boogie boards and chairs were available this year. The back porch is a great place to hang out with plenty of chairs, rockers and chaise lounges.
The owner is quick to respond and very helpful. I would highly recommend this property! While not beach front, it is a short and manageable walk to the beach and its location down near the Point is great for shelling and is NOT crowded!
Day trips to Southport (the museum is worth a stop and there are lots of cute shops and good restaurants) and Fishers Aquarium recommended. We hope you enjoy OKI as much as we do!
I personally don't look for a mega mansion with granite counters and the like at the beach. This house has everything needed without being over the top and it has a homey, comfortable feel.

FOUR ADULTS WITH 4 SMALL CHILDREN

  • 5 of 5
My family has rented several properties over the past 10 years, and I must say that Mariner's Watch has become our number one place to stay. As one of the other adults in the house commented, she has been going to the beach for over 20 years, and she has never stayed in a place that was so well-stocked. In fact, she is already planning our trip for next year and started a spreadsheet to include all the things we DON'T have to take! The walk to the beach was very manageable for our kid aged 6 months (mom carried him) to 7yrs. This walk often included coolers, diaper bag, wagon, towel bags, chairs. From boogie boards (which the kids loved) to inside entertainment to spices and working appliances, you will not get a better deal (or vacation) for the money! On a separate note, we used the new bridge to get to the island and shaved 20 minutes off our travel time. It also made the trip to Walmart even quicker.
