The screened-in porch is lovely no matter the weather! There is a picnic table for morning coffee or afternoon snacks, or sit back, relax and listen to the ocean in the wicker chairs.

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 2013

Why Sarah Davidson chose Coastal North Carolina

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 Monday 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!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sarah, Just a note to tell you how much we enjoyed our week at Smooth Sailing. The beds were super comfy, the kitchen extremely well stocked, and good vibes were present everywhere. We especially loved the top deck view, and the warmth of the sun...even in late November!! Thanks so much for creating such a warm and welcoming "home away from home" Anne and Family

Oh what a beautiful beach week!

  • 5 of 5

This home is literally about 40 steps from the beach! Taking that into account, know that this is truly a beach house! There is everything you need to make you stay fun - games galore, everything you need to cook (but why?), beach chairs, grill, all the fixin's for a fabulous time but all you really need is your sunscreen, swimsuit, beach towel, a snack and some cold beverages!

And...LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! We loved little day trips to Southport, Bald Head Island, Carolina Beach and Calabash! Truly, we ate so much great seafood that we only cooked twice....and that was breakfast!

Being at the beach is a retreat from reality of us and we're retired! It was nice to just sit back, relax and enjoy our surroundings. There are televisions in each bedroom and the living room and we never turned one on once. We enjoyed the fabulous back porch and outer deck, the sound of the waves and the birds and watching folks stroll along the beach.

The house is easy to live in - it's a bit rustic and being at the end of the summer rental season could use a little sprucing up - some fresh paint on the trim inside, etc. I mentioned that to Sarah, the owner and she is all over it!!! A delight to work with from our initial contact with her. We had absolutely NO issues at all. A note to future renters...put a pan of water outside the door and a towel to wipe your toes - that way you don't get sand inside - a lesson we learned years ago after doing a lot of sweeping and cleaning! I don't want to clean or sweep when I'm on vacation!

Relax, enjoy and just BE AT THE BEACH!

Owner's Response: Monica, Well that just about made my week, what a wonderful way to start Monday morning. That review was so thorough and informative I have nothing to add! Except how pleased I am that you completely enjoyed your vacation. We work hard at communication and upkeep so it is hassle free over your very precious vacation time! The porch screens get replaced next week--salt air and hurricane winds can do a number on screens! I certainly loved your tip about the bucket and towel! I did keep a bucket out there for just that sort of thing but that blew away quickly! We certainly look forward to having you back next year! Love your attitude! Take Care, Sarah

Great uncrowded beach location--- wonderful deck and screened porch!

  • 4 of 5

Overall, our stay was wonderful. The house is located on a quiet part of the beach that was never crowded. Beach views were spectacular! Sarah, the owner, was very responsive when we contacted her about a broken screen door. In fact the handyman was there to repair it in a matter of hours. Unfortunately, there were a few items that probably need to be addressed that could not be fixed quickly during our stay. I am happy to talk/email with Sarah to discuss in detail. I would definitely stay in the house again because of its location, wonderful deck/screened porch, and well stocked kitchen! We really enjoyed our stay and we were sad to leave our beach paradise! Thank you!

Owner's Response: Tamara, Keeping those screens intact on the screened in porch is quite a task! Being beach front we get some very heavy winds and the salt air coming off the ocean doesn't help! We get them replaced about every 2 years, so the handyman will be there again in October to redo the whole porch! It is great to be able to enjoy the ocean even on an occasional rainy day from the porch! Thanks for being great renters. We look forward to talking with you and having you back again in the future! Take Care, Sarah

Wonderful Beachfront House.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Smooth Sailing and loved the location, and the clean, well stocked beachfront house, Great view because the house is located in front of houses to the east and there is a vacant lot next door. We have never stayed at a rental that was as well stocked with paper goods, kitchen supplies and cooking utensils. Just as good as home! The screened porch and deck made for a great beach experience. TV's and wifi are first class.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review. I loved how you described our beach front location, it was as good as a travel log. We really strive to keep the kitchen well stocked, I know I hate searching for platters or stock pots when I am traveling. I must give all T.V. credit to my husband who thinks all houses should have plenty! Really glad you stayed with us and had a great time! Hope to have you back next year. Thanks, Sarah

Owner's Response: Well thank you for your very kind review. While I can't take credit for the great weather and excellent location on the beach, I can happy you found communicating with me easy! It is a great porch to relax in with a book, cup of coffee or family dinner. Hope you can come back again. Take Care, Sarah

Nice Little Beach Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at Smooth Sailing. The house was clean and we loved the screened in porch overlooking the ocean. Very private. We had a great week! Sarah was easy to work with and made everything wonderful!

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your beach get-away. I think Oak Island is so wonderful in June! I hope you were able to make it to the weekly Farmers Market on Mondays! The screened in porch is such a nice feature on that house and what a great way to hear all the ocean sounds. I'm obviously pleased you found me easy to work with because that is always the goal! Hope to have you back next year and you can let me know what I can do to make it a 5 star stay! Take Care, Sarah

Owner's Response: Dear Kristin, I don't even know what to say except THANK YOU! What a wonderful review. Also, I can't be happier that you "loved your stay" because that is my goal for every single one of my renters! It's why we have nice linens and towels, why we keep bikes and beach chairs, why I respond quickly--I want you happy! Thanks again for your kind and thoughtful words! Can't wait for you all to come back! Take Care, Sarah
