About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

With newly remodeled bathrooms and a new refrigerator and cooking range "A Green Room” is a perfect getaway.

Located in the quiet West Beach area of Oak Island just a few blocks from the beach about a 2-3 minute walk to a public beach access on 13th Street.

One of its best features is the spacious, furnished screened front porch with swing.

It is the perfect place to unwind after a day at the beach.

The ground level includes a covered car port, picnic table and enclosed outside hot/cold shower. The house backs up to the marsh with beautiful views to enjoy and every once in a while you may spot a white egret.

It's a perfect place to relax and prepare for the next oscar winning act of your life.

About Owner/Manager

Hi we are Paula and Greg. We own this wonderful retreat and come here often on family vacations. We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do.

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2004

Why Owner/Manager chose Coastal North Carolina

We like how or home backs up to the marsh because it gives us privacy and a great view of wildlife such as white egrets.

What makes this house unique

Oak Island is a quiet family beach and is very clean. West Pelican Drive has very little through traffic so its very safe for dogs and kids.

Enjoy Ocean Breezes from your Screened Porch and Unwind at your Relaxing Retreat
average rating of 4.1 based on 10 reviews

Loved the screened in porch & short walk to beach.

  • 4 of 5

Proximity to ocean and screened in porch was highlight of the home. Located on the 4th row back from ocean, it is a very quiet road. View of marsh behind really isn't accessible. Paula & Greg were most helpful as some problems most likely due to hurricane Matthew were resolved promptly. Paula also graciously honoured our initial reservation when moved due to health. The property was dated in décor, cooking utensils, dishes old, small TV, patches where wall repaired, carpet cleaned but needed to be replaced, as Greg noted. Bathrooms had been updated and were beautiful.Instructions left behind such as , wireless internet password, would have been helpful. We really enjoyed the swing, deck is pretty weathered and screened in porch had some screens torn perhaps from hurricane. Overall we enjoyed our month long stay.

Much needed get away!

  • 4 of 5

As advertised about three minutes from the water by foot. Good thing it was because it might have suffered damage from hurricane Matthew. Some places were damaged but the sand was washed into the road which turned out to be the worst of it. Paint looked fresh and some new appliances was a nice surprise. Got to remember it was December so we could not expect perfect weather but still got some good ones.

Never have seen a perfect house at the beach especially considering the salt air causing corrosion. The house was in better than expected condition. Wish there had been a list giving information about where things are and TV listings. Since there is no visible water filter we did buy a pitcher type filter and hope the cleaning crews leave it alone for future renters. Unreal how some people damage a place, spoke with the owner of the place next door. Beautiful house but like most owners they suffer damage that is to put it simply - just wrong! Seafood in the area is as good as you will find. Most who have never been to the area will find it hard to believe but you will see sunsets over water on the east coast on this end of the island. Take the ferry across to Fort Fisher to go to the Aquarium, well worth your time. Born and raised in N.C. so yes we, my wife and I will always hold this state close to our hearts, enjoy it but leave it like you found it with only foot prints left behind. Want excitement drive down to Myrtle but drive back to Oak Island to be safe!

Perfect paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I could not have had a better stay on the island. The house had such a warm feeling that I had to keep reminding myself it was not my home! Very very spacious. Laid out perfectly. We never got in the way of each other. Kitchen was fully stocked for cooking and eating. Beautiful remodeled bathrooms! My dog was so comfy he slept most of the time and the outside shower was perfect for him!

Since the house is one street back from the beach it is so quiet and peaceful. The screened in front porch is your own private little heaven! I cannot say enough great things about this home. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it. And the fact that it is pet friendly made it a dream come true for me.

Greg and Paula were an absolute delight to work with. I cannot imagine a nicer or more accommodating couple to rent from. Thank you Paula and Greg for providing a perfect vacation for a girl who had not had a vacation in 3 years. I am madly in love with Oak Island thanks to you!

Beach life with the FAMILY :)

  • 4 of 5

This home was very cozy and welcoming for a family of five. Spacious enough that we could be together or have some time alone. It is only minutes to the beach and the porch did the trick. Got a lot of use out of the grill, was a nice money saver to eat at home. Back yard could use some attention, although we didn't go for that, the beach was absolutely amazing. Would definitely stay here again! Everything we needed was here-Thank you!!

Our family felt so comfortable in this 3 bedroom, pet friendly rental! The house felt clean and had everything we needed. The only disappointment was that the back yard was grown up with weeds making it not as pet friendly as the house. We would certainly recommend this vacation home to others.

A Green Room is a place to unwind

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - no complaints whatsoever. Our favorite place was the screened in porch. We spent most mornings and evenings out there. It is just a short walk to the beach, which was nice too. Nice wide open beach and fairly quiet too.
