Overview

About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom with deep water fishing pier

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...

Notes:
You are welcome to bring your boat. We have a 12 foot floating dock. At dead low tide the bow of the boat may rest on the mud while the opposite end will not. I recommend nothing larger than 18ft flat bottom skiff. If you are not familiar with the creek it can be tricky to navigate at low tide. Ask me about bringing your boat for more details!!!

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

This house was a great location and overall great home to rent!

  • 5 of 5

We always travel to Oak Island for vacation. The kids have enough around to keep them entertained. We love it because it is a family oriented town with great fishing and crabbing. Staying at Duffys beach house was definitely worth it and we hope to be back real soon.

Property was nice. We really enjoyed our stay.

  • 4 of 5

Back deck had a lose board that we kept tripping on and deck handrail on stairs is coming apart.

Good location. It rained the entire time but we had a good vacation.

Comfortable, clean home with private fishing dock!

  • 5 of 5

We came for a week of fishing and absolutely loved it. Plenty of parking for two cars, and plenty of space in the well laid-out home for four adults. The two fishermen in our crew made ample use of the dock and caught multiple fish and crabs. Our only issue was a minor glitch in the heating, which was promptly taken care of by the owner; everything else worked fine. We enjoyed exploring OKI and Southport (this was our first visit here) -- the house is very conveniently located and the neighborhood was great for walking our dog. We didn't spend a lot of time at the beach due to the cold weather, but we'd love to come back again and hit the beach and take the kayaks out on the canal. Highly recommend this house!

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.
