About the property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

NEW information as of 10/2015 Mr. Krabs has a brand new washer and dryer, new dishwasher and new central air and heat. Our home is a charming rustic ocean front with some new modern conveniences. Mr Krabs is classified as a vintage cottage with a quaint cabin feel. Guests love the direct beach access with a covered porch and sun deck perfect for relaxing and watching the sunrise and sunset. This cottage is very unique because it is in a convenient location close to shopping, but feels very private since there is not a direct neighbor on either side. From Mr. Krabs you can walk to the ice cream store, coffee house, breakfast places and beach shops. Three of the bedrooms have queen sized beds, and one has two twins. All hardwood floors make this an easy house to keep tidy and free of sand. Under the house there are additional parking spaces and a hot and cold shower.

About The Owner

We purchased this home in 2003 when our kids were little and loved Sponge Bob...hence the name Mr. Krabs! We were fortunate to live at the beach (in Southport) for two years but now we live in Greensboro, NC but go to the coast as much as we can. We love the laid back feel of Oak Island and Southport.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2003

Why The Owner chose Oak Island

This property was special to us since it was the only house in a row of six to survive Hurricane Floyd. People always comment how this cottage takes them back to fond childhood memories of the knotty pine beach house days. Days were it wasn't about being fussy in a beach house and where the kids could just be kids.

What makes this cottage unique

We love the direct beach access and the sun and shade porch. We also love having the ability to walk the kids to the Dairy Queen at night instead of having to get in the car. We love our shabby chic decor! Our white painted floors brighten the home and make cleaning up sand easy!


Car: recommended

Mr. Krabs is one of the most convenient beach houses to the grocery store, restaurants and coffee house. Although very convenient also very private! There are no houses directly on either side of Mr. Krabs so when you are staring at the ocean you feel like you are miles away from everything!

Charming beach cottage with stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

Mr. Krabs cottage is a quintessential beach home. The view and beach access is phenomenal (we couldn't ask for better). The beach in Oak Island is on par with the Caribbean. The sand is fine like sugar, the beach was flat and not a rock was in sight. The ocean floor was smooth on your feet. The house has 4 small bedrooms, 2 baths & open concept living, dining & kitchen. The house reminds me of a summertime cottage as a child. It's an older home with lots of charm. We enjoyed the outdoor space from sitting with a cup of coffee in the morning, to a game of dominoes in the afternoon to sipping on a glass of wine at sunset. Our pup loved this home too. The yard is completely fenced in & she frolicked around. Can't wait to go back in 2018.

Voted best porch in the universe by three generations of my family!

  • 5 of 5

Voted best porch in the universe by three generations of my family! The house itself is great. It amply accommodated my grown sons, a girlfriend, my parents and their house rabbits, and me. However, we spent most of our time on that porch. The angle is such that the porch is always in the shade, which is a real treat after coming up from the beach and waves. The rocking chairs were perfect for my dad to sit and carve, and all of us to enjoy a drink and views of the beach by day. There's also a front deck that extends beyond the porch, so you can sit out and enjoy the stars at night. Casey was extremely helpful—prompt but also quite considerate of our privacy.

Perfect space

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic house right on the beach. Has everything you'd need for your stay. Dogs have their own fenced in area. It was great to be right on the beach with an outdoor shower to rinser off. The porch was great to watch the sunsets and get out of the sun. It was great cooking in the kitchen with all utensils and spices already in the house. Food Lion is just a short walk down the street. The umbrella is meant for a table, but we made it work in the sand. Only a few beach chairs there, so bring your own if you have a large group going. Overall--best house for a low-key beach vacation with 8 adults, a 6 week old, and two dogs!

Lovely vintage cottage right on the ocean. Brought back memories of summer days as a child when going to the beach was about the beach and relaxation!

Great location on beach front and enjoyed not having to lug everything down.

  • 5 of 5

Being just steps away from the house was perfect. Our black lab enjoyed his first beach trip. The house had everything that we needed for the week and we were comfortable. Only one suggestion would to place about 4 stepping stones from the outdoor shower to the step. We used the outdoor shower all week.

This precious Cottage is just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

This house is very pet friendly. It is so nice to be able to bring my beloved four-legged babies with us and now that they will be safe. The cottage is set up just beautifully with great access and ease throughout. We can't wait to return again!
