A perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely vacation home. It is very thoughtfully decorated with you and your dog(s) in mind. It has hard floors throughout and a HUGE fenced in yard. The hammock was so very comfortable and with the trees in the yard it was nice, shady and cool. The beach is about 1/2 mile walk, but it is great exercise for you and the dog... and the beaches are dog friendly as well. Lynne and Al could not have been nicer to work with. We will definately rent this place again.

Cute, super-clean cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

Lovely A-frame, easy walk to the beach. Spotless, and owner provided great instructions-she was very helpful and quick to respond. Not luxurious, but comfortable, everything worked, and it was really nice to have fenced in yard and be surrounded by pine trees. Quiet and peaceful. No wi-fi, but Flying Pig coffee shop is few minute drive and has tasty coffee and free wifi. Southport is easy 10-15 minute drive, and grocery store is 2 minute drive. Our dog gave it 4 paws up-we'll be back!

Great value, cozy home!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Back bed is a little stiff, but the red couch was so comfy! The house was not perfect (but it was really nice), so it felt lived in and we really liked that comfortable feeling. It was also easy to find and a very central location, so we did not have to go far to find anything.

Owner's Response: Thank you Rosemary! Our goal is to make our guests feel at home, so I'm glad you enjoyed your stay - and the couch! I'm sorry the downstairs mattress was not comfortable for you. We know there is always room for improvement and appreciate your feedback. Thanks again, and enjoy the rest of your fall! Lynne

Decent Rental House/Great for Dogs

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed the quiet neighborhood, the proximity to the beach and local stores, and the large fenced/private back yard which was great for our dogs, The house itself was "okay." It definitely needs some work, as the doors and windows are in rough shape and the laminate floor was a bit warped. But overall, it was clean and comfortable and the dogs seemed very relaxed and we all enjoyed the walks on the beach. The owner was pleasant to work with. Loved going to Southport nearby.

We loved the Beach!

  • 3 of 5

We have stayed on Oak Island before but we tried this place as it boasted a fenced in yard and was closer to the beach. We discovered upon arrival a For Sale sign in the front yard which might be why some things have been let go.

PROS:

House has 2 bedrooms with the loft being very separate from the bedroom downstairs.

Two bathrooms were adequate and lots of towels were available for guests.

5 minute walk to beach and beautiful weather spent every day on the beach.

CONS

Although the house has a large fenced in yard, there is almost no grass, lots of worrisome mushrooms growing all over the place and since it receives almost no direct sunlight, the mosquitos were horrendous. Both the people and the dogs got attacked by mosquitos whenever they went out back.

The kitchen is also understocked when it comes to basics. Pots but no lids, no sharp cutting knives, very few bowls that type of thing. It made making dinner at the cottage a challenge. No dishwasher.

Owner's Response: Melissa, Thank you for your feedback. Since I don't live nearby, I rely on our guests to let me know if there is anything missing or otherwise not meeting their expectations. I was not aware that kitchen items were missing as the kitchen has always been fully stocked with everything needed for cooking and eating in. I have also experienced my share of mosquito bites in the back yard which is an unfortunate result of the wooded, private yard. Outside of possibly hanging a bug zapper I'm not sure how else to control the bugs but do appreciate your input. I'm sorry the yard did not meet your expectations. I am glad to hear you enjoyed the beach however, and that you otherwise had what you needed for your stay. Thank you again for your visit! Lynne

38th st pet friendly home

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed this home very much. Very comfortable and peaceful. Property was clean and wonderful fenced in yard, bigger than we expected. Bought fresh fish from Haag and Sons for most evening meals. We enjoyed visiting nearby Southport numerous times - the spring festival was very nice. Loved the area, it was our second visit to Oak Island, can't wait to return.
