DUFFY'S DOCK HOUSE WITH DEEP WATER FISHING PIER

Oak Island House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom with deep water fishing pier

This house is an absolute gem! Nestled on a private waterfront lot, this three-bedroom home is just a quick five-minute scenic walk (paved sidewalk) from the recently-renourished beaches of Oak Island. Duffy's Dock House's new owners have lovingly redecorated with your perfect vacation in mind!

Duffy's Dock House is waiting to help you create a relaxing vacation full of cherished memories. Watch the sunrise on the fishing pier as the tide flows in and out. Launch the kayaks from the dock and explore the quiet, serene, wildlife-filled Davis Creek. Use the crabpot to catch your dinner. Enjoy yourself under the shady oaks of the large grassy backyard. Take a cruise around the island on one of the owner-provided beach bikes. Load up the beach cart and stroll over the tidal creek to the beautiful beach or try your hand at surf fishing. Wash the sand from your feet in the private, outdoor hot-water shower. Put an umbrella in your drink and grab a book as you relax on the shady backporch. Whip up a gourmet meal in the well-stocked kitchen or grill out on the backyard deck. Take a family portrait on the dock with Davis Creek stretching behind you. For a rainy day, Duffy's Dock House comes equipped with plenty of games, puzzles, and books to keep the whole family entertained. If that is not enough, then take a short drive to historic Southport to visit museums, art galleries, historic homes and then dine in one of Southport's many excellent restaurants. For day trips, historic downtown Wilmington is only 40 minutes, Myrtle Beach is an easy 1 hour drive or take a scenic ferry ride to exclusive Bald Head Island. A convenience store sits just one block away on the way to the beach.

With plenty of room to spread out or get together for a family dinner, Duffy's Dock House is truly a great family vacation home. The beaches of Oak Island are waiting for you...

HEAVEN ON EARTH.

  • 5 of 5
House was excellent. All utensils needed were provided. I love to fish and spent many pleasurable hours on the dock. The deck was also a great place for family to get together. Our little dog loved the yard and the neighborhood for walking. My wife enjoyed the quite area for reading and relaxing.

FAMILY OF 3

This is a lovely home. Great for relaxing and spending time with the family. Private dock for as much fishing as you please or just watching the sun rise while drinking your coffee. Very spacious and clean. Neighbors were nice and helpful. Short walk or drive to the beach. WiFi and TV for relaxing in the home. Washer and dryer made it easy to keep our clothes and linens clean. Sadly we didn't have a chance to use the kayaks but they were there if we wanted to use them. We were sad to go. We will definitely be visiting in the future.

GREAT HOME AND LOCATION.

Although not on the beach, it is only a 5 minute walk away. The back yard, deck, and pier all all nice places to relax.

GREAT COTTAGE, QUIET BEACH, LOTS OF BIRDS -- WHAT COULD BE BETTER?

  • 4 of 5
We had a great week here in Oak Island. Although the weather wasn’t perfect, we really enjoyed being together at Duffy’s Dock. Your place is very comfortable and welcoming. The furniture, art work and decorations help make this vacation house so cozy. Spending time on the dock was both calming and exciting at the same time. Lots of different kinds of birds to see and hear. We didn't fish, but we did see fish jumping. We loved the screened-in sun porch and the big back yard. It made us forget the ‘real world’!
We really had a GREAT time and loved being at Duffy’s Dock. I can tell that you have put lots of love and care in this cottage.

I had anticipated a much longer walk to the beach -- it is a very easy, quick walk and we were on sidewalk most of the way. Although we didn't use it, we did see the great cart you have to help carry things down to the beach. We drove down to Caswell Beach one day. There are port-a-johns there so is was easy to spend the whole day at the beach. As always at this time of year, no matter where we went to the beach it was practically empty. Walking on the hard beach was so much fun for all of us, including our 15 year old cockapoo. She just loves the beach!

You offered us so much that we never took advantage of -- the bikes, the kayaks, fishing and crabbing, the games in the house, the outdoor shower (although we did rinse our feet using the convenient hose!). Just knowing that all those things were available gave us so much freedom -- we didn't have to "wish" for anything!

Oh, one last thing – had we known we needed a NC fishing license, we would have gotten one in advance. I bet we could have gotten the license at the pier, but it would have been so easy to purchase and print it out at home. As it was, we didn’t have time for fishing at all, but it would have felt good to one we had them just in case.

PET-FRIENDLY, CLOSE TO BEACH, GREAT VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
Thank you so much for the chance to spend time in such a lovely home. Very thing was perfect and the handicap ramp was great for mom. The amenities for children made me wish my grandchildren had been with us. The home was fully stocked with everything we needed and was a short ride to the beach access. We truly did not use the home to it's full potential as we did not cook or swim or anything, (we are 3 elderly disabled people) but everything was available had we wanted to. I highly recommend the home to families and persons of all ages. Thank you again.

Notes I enjoy making our home available for other people and families to use. I try my best to respond to inquiries in timely manner but I also have a day job and I travel for work quite a bit so I can not always respond right away, especially on weekends. I also do my best to return deposits in a timely manner but welcome reminders by email that a deposit is due.
