About Sarah Davidson

We are an active traveling family with 6 vacation properties for rent. This ocean front house, and another 6 houses down the street, a Townhome in Cottonwood, Utah (8 miles from Alta, Snowbird, Solitude and Brighton) and 3 Slopeside Condos in Wintergreen, Virginia. Vacation Year Round in one of our wonderful homes! We offer 10% discounts for customers who stay in two our homes in the same year. We are pet friendly because ours are apart of the family. We love to ski and play tennis as a family, but travel frequently for Sarah (Mom) who is a frequent triathlon competitor.

Sarah Davidson purchased this house in 2011

Why Sarah Davidson chose Long Beach

The View is Amazing. The ocean runs East to West so you get an Ocean Sunrise and Ocean Sunset. Conveniently located a half hour off Interstate 40.

Tennis For Free..Just 3 blocks from Free Public Tennis Courts that are in Great Shape!

For Golfers...The Oak Island Golf Club welcomes you to a coastal Carolina golfing experience. But summer vacationers to Oak Island’s vacation community in Brunswick County enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and warm southern hospitality that are hallmarks of Oak Island GC. The 18-hole, 6,720 yard George Cobb design provides an exciting adventure, round after round.

What makes this house unique

Rest, Beach, Bike, Tennis, Golf, Walks and Plenty of Night Life. Great for Families. The Wednesday Farmers market is 3 blocks away--so fun! Also in this area is a skate board park and children's playground!

We have another ocean front home 7 houses down the street if you are bringing more family and friends along--togetherness, but not too close!!

Owner's Response: Frank, Thank you for taking your time and reviewing you stay! We never want any surprises for our guests so "cottage was just as advertised" is always music to my ears!

That is why we provide bikes, beach chairs and try and keep all appliances new and working great! Hope to see you come again. Take Care, Sarah

It was amazing! Good location and quiet

The house was very cozy and perfect for my boyfriend and I. We'll bring the kids next time. It looked better in person than the pictures.

Owner's Response: Whitney, So glad you had a good vacation. The location is so convenient for restaurants or groceries or 30 feet to the beach! We are in dire need of new pictures. I'm glad it looked better in person! We can't wait for your return trip with the kids! Thank you, Sarah

Quaint and comfortable!

  • 4 of 5

Perfect for us and our two dogs! The cottage has rustic charm, wood floors and some wood beamed ceilings and a great partially covered back porch right on the ocean. The porch is gated, which was wonderful for our labs. TV's in all the rooms, lots of games for rainy afternoons. The beach was never crowded, lots of folks fishing and a great restaurant close by. Definitely not fancy, but comfortable with all the amenities we needed. Thanks for having us, would love to come back!

Wonderful week

  • 4 of 5

We've rented several beach houses over the years but this house was the closest to the water than any of the others. We enjoyed sitting on the deck watching the beautiful sunsets and even moon sets! The house served 5 adults and 3 dogs well. We liked having gates on the deck to keep the puppies contained (if this is something you need to do bring bungee cords to secure the gates since a dog bump or wind opens them easily). Beds and furniture were comfortable but the master bedroom could use curtains since the neighbors kept their outdoor light on all night which kept the bedroom bright. The kitchen was very well stocked. We will book this house again in the future!

Owner's Response: Dear De, The house is so close to the beach we are having the dunes rebuilt after last Falls hurricane season. We had started the rebuilding process when a turtle laid her eggs early and everything had to stop. We rebuild that front gate every season after a year of hurricane winds! Rest assured there will be new curtains when you return, I love decorating and keeping all the linens and towels beautiful! I am very pleased you intend to book the house again. We look forward to having you back. Take Care, Sarah

Great beachfront cottage

  • 5 of 5

I love Oak Island, I have been visiting there for the last 8 years and this was a great place to stay. The cottage is nicely decorated and the kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, and dishes. The best part of the house is the extended deck overlooking the ocean - what a wonderful sight to wake up to every morning. Nothing like a good cup of coffee on one of the rocking chairs to enjoy the sunrise. The location is great, easy access to Island Way, our favorite restaurant on the island, and to the Food Lion to pick up some groceries. And I so appreciate that this cottage is pet friendly, my dog loved both the beach and laying on the deck.

Owner's Response: Mary, Everyone loves Island Way and I must say that is one of my favorite Food Lion stores I've ever been too. I really love coffee on the deck as well--a sunny day or even a crisp morning with a blanket! You guys were really wonderful to work with and I loved the picture of your dog enjoying The Salt Life! Take Care, Sarah

Fire your house keeper stove filthy window sills dirty

Scarey windows thAt would not lock back deck not safe for small children

Owner's Response: Dear Sally, Thank you for your five stars review I am glad you enjoyed your vacation. The back deck is secure and safe for pets and small children. There are two gates keeping everyone in and small pickets so small dogs can't fit through. It is also the most amazing view of the ocean, I love hearing the waves crash on shore. The stove can't be cleaned when people leave on a Saturday and the next renters arrive on Saturday. We do two big cleans a year when we have open time in the schedule. Thanks again, Sarah
