Overview

Oak Island House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, sleeps 6, an easy 2 minute walk to the beach

SNOWBIRDS OR OUTTAGE WORKERS ONLY, OVER WINTER.

We reserve the right to speak to our tenants on the phone prior to renting in order to avoid scammers and make sure the house is right for you.

This house is best suited for a single family of vacation renters or two couples. The house includes flat screen TV with cable, DVD players, selection of DVD’s, washer/dryer, full kitchen with all appliances, bicycles, beach wagon (to tote your stuff to the beach), chairs, umbrellas, and coolers.

Fenced in back yard, pet friendly

The neighborhood: From the house you can easily take bicycle rides for leisure or bike to the grocery store. The house is surrounded by shade trees and at night you would barely know that you are near civilization. You can hear the ocean waves crash from the screened in porch.

The nearest beach access is an easy 2 minute walk down the block.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great summer of renters this year. We really appreciate the parties we had. Everyone who took advantage of the "do your own cleaning" got their entire security deposit back. Good for us and good for you!

This charming and whimsical cottage is perfect for small families, or couples looking for a getaway. With all the comforts of home we felt right at home. What a great place to relax and recharge, in an excellent location. The cottage is conveniently within walking distance of everything. Thank you Rob and Gretchen for sharing your wonderful place with us!

Very quaint and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 5 nights and my first impression was that I didn't need to bring much along to feel at home. This home provides almost everything you need for a beach vacation. Cart, umbrellas, chairs, body boards, bikes and more. It was nice not having to bring so much. Linens and food is all you really need. Spent a lot of time in the screened in porch and on the hammock. Loved that we could bring our dogs and did not detect any fleas or smell of past dogs. It was one 1/2 block walk to beach. Beach was not real crowded which made it nice to visit. Some parts of the island can get pretty crowded but this part of the beach wasn't. Convenient store located at the corner in walking distance and food lion close by for food shopping. There are a lot of small amenities at this rental that we appreciated: drying line on carport, outdoor shower, fenced in yard, cable, movies, games, 2 bathrooms, washer, dryer and so much more. This isn't a new property but was perfect for our low key vacation. Thanks for the easy checkin, checkout, refund of deposit. We definitely recommend it to others.

Cute beach cottage

  • 4 of 5

This is a cutesy little house about 2-3 blocks from the beach. It has a lot of charm. For our family of three (one adult + two kids), it was just right. Though older than the surrounding almost-mansions, it was very reasonably priced.

Oak Island's beaches are fairly uncrowded. It's a great place to go for pure beach fun.

We enjoyed the use of the numerous beach toys provided.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

As a family of 4 this house was perfect, short walk to the beach, small and cozy, secluded. It was great not to have the kids dazed by all the glitz of bigger beaches, Oak Island is still a hidden gem. The house was clean and well maintained. We loved the screened in porch and the hammock. I would definitely recommend Oak Knoll to anyone looking for a great little get away.
