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!

Great Place to Stay

  • 4 of 5

The Island Love Shack is an ideal vacation place. We have been there several times. The house is clean, very functional, private, and in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance of the beach, yet a short drive to food stores, coffee shops, and restaurants. We'll be back!

Wonderful stay at The Love Shack!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the property and it was just as good. Awesome cottage located on a quiet street a stone's throw from the ocean. Just what we needed to recharge from what has already been a chaotic year. The house is cozy and comfortable and is close to everything. If you're looking for a nice romantic getaway, this is the spot.

Very cute-creatively decorated-clean-has everything one could need

  • 5 of 5

It looks like the owner put alot of thoughtful effort into making this a very cute love shack and anything I needed that I forgot to bring was available. It's a quiet, relaxing area and a great place to walk one's dog.

Loved the Love Shack!

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!
