This house is an absolute gem! Nestled on a private waterfront lot, this three-bedroom home is just a quick five-minute scenic walk (paved sidewalk) from the recently-renourished beaches of Oak Island. Duffy's Dock House's new owners have lovingly redecorated with your perfect vacation in mind!
Duffy's Dock House is waiting to help you create a relaxing vacation full of cherished memories. Watch the sunrise on the fishing pier as the tide flows in and out. Launch the kayaks from the dock and explore the quiet, serene, wildlife-filled Davis Creek. Use the crabpot to catch your dinner. Enjoy yourself under the shady oaks of the large grassy backyard. Take a cruise around the island on one of the owner-provided beach bikes. Load up the beach cart and stroll over the tidal creek to the beautiful beach or try your hand at surf fishing. Wash the sand from your feet in the private, outdoor hot-water shower. Put an umbrella in your drink and grab a book as you relax on the shady backporch. Whip up a gourmet meal in the well-stocked kitchen or grill out on the backyard deck. Take a family portrait on the dock with Davis Creek stretching behind you. For a rainy day, Duffy's Dock House comes equipped with plenty of games, puzzles, and books to keep the whole family entertained. If that is not enough, then take a short drive to historic Southport to visit museums, art galleries, historic homes and then dine in one of Southport's many excellent restaurants. For day trips, historic downtown Wilmington is only 40 minutes, Myrtle Beach is an easy 1 hour drive or take a scenic ferry ride to exclusive Bald Head Island. A convenience store sits just one block away on the way to the beach.
With plenty of room to spread out or get together for a family dinner, Duffy's Dock House is truly a great family vacation home. The beaches of Oak Island are waiting for you...

A perfect location and perfect home
This was a perfect house for our getaway. Two small families fit easily into this spacious home. Very short walk to beach. Beautiful dock on the water. Thanks
Really enjoyed our stay. Couldn’t have been better.
This was an awesome place to stay for our family vacation!
Plenty of space, beautiful decor, and an amazing dock/backyard. The walk to the beach was an easy 7 minute walk. The communication with the owner was superb and the next door neighbor was very kind. I would highly recommend this home for your vacation!
The house was very nice and open! Loved the private dock outback and the large back yard
We had such a great family vacation! We had so much fun out on the private dock and the big back yard. The House was perfect for us!! Easy quick drive to the public beach access and other amenities. Highly recommended!!
Perfect for families
Brought my son and a couple of his friends, they loved being able to fish whenever they wanted, and made good use of the kayaks. Just overall great place to stay at the beach, thank you!
Nice but needs some updating
First impression was very nice but some things became apparent shortly after arriving. The TVs were difficult to figure out, especially the bedroom TV, which never worked properly. There was no cable or DISH, only local TV antenna and Roku that if one is unfamiliar with can be a problem. The kitchen was dated, pots and pans were in okay condition; there were quite a few dishes, most were not microwaveable and there was no organization in the cabinets. I believe every set of miniblinds was broken (which I discovered when I tried to raise them) so we were not able to put them up or down. The back deck needs some repairs, the bikes and wagon were very rusted, which we understand is unavoidable, so we didn’t attempt to use them. We were expected to clean but there were few supplies and they were not in very good shape. We really did enjoy our stay there even though it was work related. The best thing was the next-door neighbor, Gary, who is a wonderful wonderful man and we will miss him tremendously! Thank you.

Rates & Availability
Additional information about rental rates
I enjoy making our home available for other people and families to use. I try my best to respond to inquiries in timely manner but I also have a day job and I travel for work quite a bit so I can not always respond right away, especially on weekends. I also do my best to return deposits in a timely manner but welcome reminders by email that a deposit is due. Our pet fee is based on length of stay. The default is set to $100 for weekly rentals. It is $50.00 for two nights, $75.00 for 3-4 nights and $100 for 5 to 7 nights. If more than one week the fee maybe more. Make sure I reset your quote if you are only staying a few nights or more than one week. We love being pet friendly as we our dog lovers and hate to leave our companions behind; especially when we have to pay where they do not want to be. You may bring up to 2 dogs. We do not allow cats because of allergies. The cleaning fee is based from 2-7 nights and maybe more beyond one week. Generally, each additional week will be additional $100 except for monthly rentals which will be quoted pending on the length of time and season. All in season rentals (June, July & August) are Saturday to Saturday (7 day minimum). Partial week rentals are available during the off season at the discretion of the owner.
