About Colleen Flannery
The Flannery's are all about family. With six children, three grandchildren (and one more on the way!), it's hard not to be! George is a general contractor, Colleen runs a professional association. Both love to golf, cook, and enjoy a great bottle of wine with friends and family. Oh, and the Flannery's are Chicago Cubs fans - hence the name "Our Friendly Confines", named after Wrigley Field in honor of the 2016 Cubs World Series win - Go Cubs!
Colleen Flannery purchased this House in 2016
Why Colleen Flannery chose Long Beach
We are from the Midwest but have been dreaming of beach house living since visiting Oak Island for the first time many years ago. At the end of each summer on the beach, we would come home with all of the real estate listings to look through. Finally, in the fall of 2016 (right after Hurricane Matthew!), we found our dream home. It was love at first sight! Standing tall and surrounded by palm trees, it was perfect! Ok, it needed a little TLC, but we were happy to give it lots of love, along with upgrades. We have updated the kitchen and baths, redecorated all the living spaces, and added many special touches that you have to see to appreciate! We also made it as baby/toddler friendly as possible. Remembering our days of traveling with little ones, we tried to equip the house with things we would have liked to have had back in the day - and our kids who visit with our grandkids say we did pretty well on that! Vacations are all about relaxing and enjoying the time without worries - even baby gates and outlet covers are in place to protect our littlest guests!
What makes this House unique
The front and back decks, the large great room full of sunshine, and all the bedrooms made it perfect for our large family. The beach access is a great one with decking and stairs to make it easy to cross the dune onto the beach. The house is close enough to the beach to make it there in less than 2 minutes, but far enough to keep the wind and wave sounds gentle enough to lull our grandkids to sleep. It is truly a family home and we have added all those things that grandmas think of: special dishes for the kids, movies and rainy day toys (and baby toy sanitizer to go with them), books on shells, turtles, mermaids and sunken ships and treasures, and games for all ages. For the adults, little luxuries like the coffee bar were added to give that vacation feel. Our favorite spot is the back deck in the late afternoon where we added a great u-shaped seating area with cushions and pillows so the adults can relax with a glass of wine or play cards with friends.

Wonderful Oak Island vacation home - Our Friendly Confines!
We spent a week here and could not have been more satisfied with the home. The owner was attentive to our needs before, during and after our stay. They have literally thought of everything a family needs, and included many nice extras such as beach chairs, baby high chair and stroller, fully stocked kitchen, I could go on and on. The home was nicely furnished, very close to the beach - less than 5 minutes walk. This part of Oak Island was quiet, not heavily travelled making our stay all the better.
We loved having you as our guests and we are happy that you were pleased with the house and island. Come back and visit soon!
Great Family Vacation
If you're looking for a great place to stay on Oak Island for a family vacation, this is the place to get! Great location...just a 5 minute walk to the beach which was extremely clean and relaxing! The house was well stocked with everything you could possibly need and was very clean and well kept! If I had to give just one recommendation, it would be to add a gas grill instead of the charcoal one...which was nice (Weber Kettle)...just for the ease and convenience of use when you want to cook a quick meal.
Besides that, two thumbs up and highly recommended!!! 😊
Outstanding Beach House!
We have stayed 2 times at this property and the 2nd time was even better than the first. The house is nicely decorated with a lot of attention to detail. The decor will certainly put you into "beach" mode. The kitchen is stocked to meet all of your needs. The Weber charcoal grill is a great feature for the nights that we didn't want to eat out. The coffee bar hutch is a terrific way to start your day with everything you need for your caffeine fix. The front and back decks are an excellent way to start and end your day. The sunrises and sunsets are spectacular! We were able to bring home numerous impressive pictures of the great views. The beach is a very short walk of 4-5 minutes and the various beach chairs are a nice added feature. One of the best features is the outdoor shower and hose. When returning from the sandy beach it is essential to be able to wash off all the remnants of the day. Colleen is very accommodating and easy to work with, she will make your stay extremely pleasant. We loved our stay and will certainly return.
Thanks so much for the kind words and we are so glad you and your family had a great time! We look forward to welcoming you back again!!!!
Wonderful owners, wonderful house, wonderful location!
We rented this house for a week-long family vacation and enjoyed it immensely! It came well-equipped and is in a wonderful location, with less than a few short blocks to the beach. The owners were kind and friendly and our interactions with them were informative and pleasant. We definitely enjoyed our stay!
You were great guests and we are happy you enjoyed your stay! Come back again soon!
Great house, great location! We had everything we needed!
Only downfall of the house: only 1 couch/2 chairs in the living room. Wished there was a more comfortable living space to hang out for 10 adults.
I'm sorry you didn't communicate during the week about the furniture - I checked with the housekeeper and other seating could have been moved to the great room from other places. She was under the impression you had small children and wanted to leave you open floor space for them.
Otherwise, I'm glad you had a good time.
The views are beautiful! I love that the beach is a 2 minute walk away. Nothing beats relaxing on the porch and watching the sunset with friends and family. I hope to be back again soon!
Glad you enjoyed your visit - hope to have you back again soon!
