About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Our house is a cute beach cottage located on a quiet street on the west end of Oak Island. With 2 roomy bedrooms and 2 baths, a medium-sized family can have an economical, yet high quality vacation. Oak Island is a beautiful island where tradition is preserved. You can take a ferry ride over to Bald Head Island or to historic Fort Fisher / Carolina Beach area. Wilmington and Myrtle Beach are each just a short drive away. Located close to the second Oak Island bridge, you will have easy and quick access to the island.

Our single story house is neatly furnished, with everything that a small or medium sized family would need to enjoy themselves. We are only a few hundred yards from the inter-coastal waterway, and a 10 minute walk to the beach.

If you are looking for a quiet vacation in a pleasant homey environment, this property is the place for you!

About The Owner

Being native North Carolinians, we grew up with our families vacationing on the beautiful southern beaches of North Carolina. So when considered purchasing beach property, Oak Island was the natural and economical choice for us. With Tammy serving as a teacher, and with Bud working as a consultant and as a pastor, we have the flexibility we need to make regular getaways to Oak Island, our favorite place in the world!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2005

Why The Owner chose Oak Island

Oak Island is a beautiful and pristine location. It has appeal to those desiring lots of activity on vacation, as well as those who like a quieter, more relaxing experience. Our property is at the quieter west end of the island.

What makes this cottage unique

We absolutely love going to the beach, reading and playing in the sand and surf with our kids. Also, working out at the local Rec Center and great biking trails provide enjoyable opportunities for keeping physically fit.

Needs a lot of TLC

  • 2 of 5

Picked this cottage because the location for our needs and price. Was disappointed to find most of the furniture was reaching the end of its lifespan, wallpaper was pealing in baths, kitchen cabinets veneer was loose in many places and the outside was poorly maintained.

Clean, but needs improvement and better upkeep...need to provide soap and paper products (even if customer pays a bit more)...needs new grill, kitchen blinds need fixing, and better linens (pillows, comforter, etc).

Would probably look elsewhere even if paying a bit more.

Cute and Clean Cottage!

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was spacious and comfortable for a family of 5. It can accommodate up to seven with the sleeper sofa in the living room. The interior of the house was well maintained the kitchen has all the things that you need to make meals for the family. The owner was prompt in responding via email. Our entire family thoroughly enjoyed Oak Island and the surrounding areas. The beach was nice especially in the late afternoon when most families had gone home. The visit to the lighthouse, aquarium, Southport, and USS North Carolina Battleship in Wilmington were all fun and informative. When our family finally got our routine, we did our sight seeing during the day and went to the beach late afternoon.

The only reason why I gave this place a rating of 4 instead of 5 is because of the comforters/bedding and the pillows. The sheets were clean, but I'm not sure when the comforters were last washed. The pillows were also uncomfortable. Most of the pillows were flat and did not give support. My husband did double up the pillows in a pillow case to make it work, but they were still uncomfortable. The other two pillows in the master bedroom were too stiff and high. My husband did not use it and I ended up not using it because it was too uncomfortable for my neck. My kids made do with what they have.

The outside also needs a little sprucing up. Maybe cleaning up of yard and landscaping.

Over all we had a wonderful time staying at this cottage. My youngest child did not want to leave.

Cute clean house. Great for s small family looking for value. The only thing that needs improving is the pull out couch if you need an extra bed. It is extremely uncomfortable, I think some springs are broken.

Great, comfortable house!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house, with everything you need! It was very clean and comfortable and the neighborhood is nice. My grandson was quite taken by an outdoor shower(23 months), which we all used, after the beach. With all kinds of toddler stuff, we had one person drive and drop off at the beach and then go back to the house and run or walk back! Then when it was time to leave, one of us walked back to get the car! It's about 20 minute walk... Totally doable, when you know you aren't paying to park to use a beautiful beach! We got some delicious grouper and cooked and also used the outside grill!! It is a great house. Tammy was so flexible and accommodating. We would love to stay there again and highly recommend!

very nice!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable house, very kid-safe. Beautiful tree in the yard! Convenient to beach and shopping. We really enjoyed our stay!

My one caveat is that there were a LOT of air fresheners -- like multiple ones in each room. If you have reactive airway issues or migraines or another health issue where this might be a trigger, please be aware.
