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
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.
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!!
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
We had a wonderful time at this beach house. You couldn't ask for a better location..right on the beach! The sunrises and sunsets were amazing, and we enjoyed sitting out on the front deck. Glad we were able to spend the month of December there. Although this rental includes linens and bedding we brought our own, and having the washer and dryer was an asset. There is plenty of dishes and cookware and we cooked most of our meals at the house. Thank you for allowing us to rent the house as we really ejoyed ourselves.
We had the most amazing vacation week at Smooth Sailing that we have ever had. Going to bed at night and getting up in the morning looking at the ocean was so relaxing. We had everything we needed to cook meals, relax, and just make memories. Sarah the owner made everything so easy for us to have this time together, we plan to come back here asap.
This was our 3rd time at Smooth Sailing, and our 4th time renting from Sarah. She is so lovely to work with. This cozy beach house is very well equipped, and the location is perfect. This is truly our home away from home. Hope to return for a 4th time next year!
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!
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!
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.
Free Public Tennis Courts are 1 mile away. Also, there is a free skateboard park close to the tennis courts.
