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!

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.

Perfect afordable place by the Beach

  • 5 of 5

My pups and I enjoyed the quiet getaway at Oak Island. The home was close enough to walk to water, and easy to drive and park. It was the perfect home to enjoy some peace and quiet away from the regular hustle and bustle of life. Will definitely stay again.

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Love Shack for 4 nights while the house we built was being readied for our closing. It was SO much better than staying in a hotel! Our greyhound made himself right at home, and loved the walks on the beach.. It was well-equipped and except for some issues with the hi-speed internet and TV (which was the fault of Time-Warner, not the owners) we had everything we needed. And the bed was very comfortable! A full sized washer and dryer was an extra plus. I would definitely recommend the Love Shack for couples or a small family. The house was clean and well maintained. The weather was chilly but it was so cozy inside we didn't even mind. It has a nice big yard and it's in a quiet neighborhood right down the street from the beach. What a great experience!

New Year at the Love Shack

  • 5 of 5

The Love Shack was the perfect place to get away for a long weekend after a stressful December. We did not have the best of weather but our time spent inside was refreshing nonetheless. The location is great for going into Southport, Caswell Beach or down to the Point. For couple or a small family, it is a winner for sure. Close to most everything. Had the weather been better, we'd likely have walked to the beach. You'll find the house, clean and with all the things you would want in a vacation home. We will definitely try and stay there again. Definitely our best experience yet with VRBO.

Like a Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the "Love Shack" so many times over the last few years that it is starting to feel like home! The cottage is clean and comfortable, with a well equipped kitchen. We love the quiet neighborhood setting close to the ocean and intercoastal waterway. Once you arrive there is no need to get in your car again until time to depart for the return trip home. A grocery store, shops and restaurants are all within a bicycle ride away. We always enjoy a rainy day ( or we have had "too much sun") trip to Southport, exploring the unique shops and enjoying lunch in one of the interesting dining spots. Already longing to return!!!
