About linda english

Hi, we are delighted to share our beach cottage with you. We purchased it after searching the east coast of N.C. from Wilmington to Pawley's Island . We really love the family friendly atmosphere of Oak Island and with our kids and friends, have spent time there every summer making great memories. Through the yrs we have continued to upgrade and take the best of care of our special cottage. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved your home. Had everything we needed. Love the rocking chairs and swing. Wonderful views and nice breezes. We had the perfect spot for our morning devotions on the side porch. We will be back. Thanks so much.

Oak Island rules!

  • 5 of 5

The 18-hour car ride was worth every minute! We enjoyed our vacation very much, the house was clean and perfect for our family. The kids enjoyed the roof top deck very much! The outdoor shower is simply awesome! It was our first time in Oak Island. Linda (the owner) is very nice and caring for the tennants. We used to go to Virginia Beach, but not anymore! Great house, great location and awesome times!

beach bum

  • 5 of 5

Serenity by the Sea a wonderful name for this cottage. The views were great from the porch where I rocked my granddaughter almost every day. The upper deck was my favorite where I could watch the fireworks from heaven and the man made ones from the beach. I really enjoyed my stay and did not want to leave. Great location to walk to the beach or take a hike in the marsh land. Thanks for sharing your wonderful cottage.

Awesome family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Visited the beach multiple times a day and toured and explored surrounding cities. Our son proposed on the beach while we were there. It will always be a special place for us!

Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

This is the only place we have ever gone back to two years in a row in 22 years of marriage...that should tell you how nice it is. Our family of four had room to spare in the house. The front porch gets great breezes from the ocean and you can hear the waves. The beach has warm water and is not crowded. The dining in town (& Southport also) is AMAZING. Kayak tours were lots of fun and my husband enjoyed the pier nearby. House is equipped with everything you could ask for...experience really is "Serenity by the Sea" :)

Wonderful house and beach

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the house; it was spacious, well stocked, clean, and on a quiet street. You could hear the ocean from the porch. There were so many areas to enjoy, from all the decks to the swing and hammock on the ground level in the shade. The outdoor shower was awesome! Having on site laundry was so nice: no hauling tons of dirty laundry back home. Linda was very easy to work with. We definitely plan on coming back!! Thank you, Al and Linda, for opening your home to others. We really had a fun and relaxing time! Travelers, be sure to check out nearby Southport and Bubba's Fudge Shop!

Great relaxing beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this beach cottage with my children for spring break and everyone loved it. It is an easy 2 minute walk to the beach...just down the sidewalk, across the street, and you're there. The house itself as is exactly as nice as it looks in the pictures. What really did it for me was the extensive decks - a front deck, a deck to dine on, and a deck on top of the house which gave great views.

I noticed there is one review that lists a bunch of negative things and from my experience I did not experience any of those things - only thing i found true was that the grill there is a tailgate type grill.

I found the value of the cottage absolutely perfect and would gladly stay here again on our next trip to Oak Island! It is perfect for a small group wanting a relaxing beach vacation.
