Guestbook comments from the owner

From our guestbook:" Dear Deb & Kevin - we've lost count of the number of times we have called "The Love Shack" home for rest and relaxation at Oak Island! As always, very clean, well maintained & equipped home for a wonderful vacation. The weather has been 'made to order perfect' and the ocean was 'bath water temperature', so wonderful to swim and ride the waves for hours! We had 'prune' fingers and toes from spending so much time in the water! Did I mention the beach was so uncrowned that at times we felt like we were on our own private strand!!

Love, Love, Love "The Love Shack!"

Oak Island's Love Shack

  • 4 of 5

Despite its romantic name, the Island Love Shack is a simple and well-maintained home that hosted our family of four. Washer and dryer and kitchen appliances made our life much more comfortable than if we had stayed in a hotel. The Shack is located in a very beautiful and quite place, which makes one’s vacation very restful. The owners of the house have a guestbook that was a great reference for us with first-hand restaurant reviews and places to visit. All in all, we enjoyed our stay!

Loved the Love Shack!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time staying here! The house is cute, accessible, and close to the beach. There was a lot to do and we used both the bikes and the grill provided and it was so much fun. Best birthday trip ever, I hope to stay here again someday!

The cottage has everything needed and location is great. 40th Street gives direct access to beach. Love Oak Island too. Hope it stays non-commercialized.

Even better than expected-well appointed. Loved it

  • 5 of 5

We (adults and dog)thoroughly enjoyed the Island Love Shack. It was even cuter than expected. Fun decor with beachy theme in good taste! Very clean and well-organized. What impressed me was that it was so well appointed. There was nothing lacking in accoutrements. The kitchen had everything needed to cook. Appliances were all in good working order. Bed was very comfortable and had high quality linens. Living room and sun room had comfortable seating. We enjoyed the big screen TV (smart TV with NetFlix and Amazon) in the evening). Neighborhood was quiet and it was lovely to have our little dog with us. Easy to get to Southport and the ferry to Fort Fisher. We will definitely stay at the Love Shack when we return to Oak Island.
