Both my husband and I grew up going to Oak Island, NC for our summer beach vacations. Naturally we continued going there when we started our own family. Oak Island is a quiet, family oriented beach. In recent years we have gravitated towards Caswell Beach on the east end of the Island. We picked out Summer of 42 because we liked the name. We're fans of the movie and the beach house has a couple of copies of the book on which the movie was based, in addition to lots of other books, puzzles and games. We stay in a different house each year, but Summer of 42 is the best by far. Yes it has all the usual ammenities, with the bonus of wireless internet. What makes this house stand out is its kitchen. No cruddy scraped up teflon pots & pans in this place. Good, heavy duty pots & pans of all sizes, plenty of dishes, cutlery and even a decent set of knives; the kind of vacation rental kitchen that doesn't make you wish you'd brought half your kitchen with you. It's close...
