“The wilderness of the sea out your door, the comfort of home while away..”
Reviewed July 2, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We woke every day to the best possible view of the sea, and set up our beach blankets on the beach in the best possible spot every day too. Living on the beach, yet inside we had all the comforts of a beautifully kept vacation home. Comfortable beds, great armchair in the living room for reading while enjoying the view. My wife did yoga every day on the elevated deck that looks out on the wildness of the Atlantic. My wife says that there is a perfect balance of being in nature yet having all the comforts of civilization. We always felt that the ocean was all ours alone when we sat on the deck.

Beatrice is extremely accomodating with a terrific staff if you need anything. You'll love the immaculately kept house, the high speed internet was amazing, there are TVs for after the sun goes down with a DVD player and a larger screen in the living room.

The location is extremely convenient, with friendly locals and lots of terrific places to eat on Oak Island. We loved several restaurants, if you like a big perfect southern breakfast, try the Old Bridge Diner 5 blocks away. All the locals eat there, so go early. Three blocks away is the amazing Bob's hot dogs, a wonderful lunch spot with friendly young waitresses and a big list of great dogs. For finer dining we tried the Fish House, a ten minute drive at the other end of Oak Island with a beautiful view of the sunsets.

As for nearby attractions. We came for the beach and spent every day enjoying it. Not very crowded, and with rich wildlife to watch. Bring binoculars, we saw porpoises lovely dark bodies leaping in the waves, every hour would bring a flight of pelicans soaring over the waves, sometimes a foot above, sometimes many feet up in the sky.

We visited the nearby maritime museum in Southport, shopped and made a visit to the battleship museum in Wilmington (only 29 miles away), what a delight.

This was the very best vacation we had every taken together!!!

Hello there you two, it just thrills us when people get how special this location is. Just today a former guest told me her husband does not like the beach, however, he wants to come back and stay at OUR cottage!! WOW! I think for those who do not like sand, you can enjoy all the aspects of the beach--the breeze, the waves, the sounds, the view-- from the deck. The wildlife is amazing, ranging from birds to turtles to dolphins! I do love the "back to the wilderness" feeling of the location, with everything you need very close by. My staff aims to please. Be blessed and come back soon.

This house is fantastic. It is located right on the ocean with easy access to the beach. The views from the deck and even from within the house are amazing. It is close to numerous restaurants and shops. We had three children with us ages 5-10 and they loved it. All the adults had a great time as well. If you plan to spend a lot of time on the beach, this is the place. There is a hose and outdoor shower to rid yourself of beach sand before coming in.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed May 22, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

My wife and I stayed here with our 4 year old son for a week and had a great time. The house was clean and cozy with comfortable furnishings. The master bed mattress was comfy. Beautiful views at all times of day and just a few feet away from a quiet and relaxing beach especially during week days. The location is also ideal in that there are several restaurants in walking distance and quick access to NC-133 for the short drive over to Southport. This was our second time to Oak Island and we revisited some favorite places like Flying Pig Coffee and found some new places like Burney's Bakery and Frying Pan. Hope to visit again each year!

David, You and your family benefited from the amazing contrast of this cottage. Our quiet beach is just steps away, but we are not far from absolutely fabulous restaurants, quaint little town's, and quite a bit of culture. Also, some beach houses are sunrise houses and some are sunset. This cottage is definitely all day long--because there's a breathtaking ocean view from every room in the house except the second bathroom. We would love to have you back! So glad you had a great time.

“Perfect spot for a relaxing honeymoon!”
Reviewed May 13, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

My husband and I spent 6 days at the Ocean Front Beach cottage after our wedding and it was the perfect place to relax and spend some time together after a hectic previous months. The house is not too big, which was perfect for the two of us. It has a great kitchen (with dishwasher, dishes, pots, coffee maker, microwave, etc) where we cooked almost every night while looking out to the ocean. It has a lovely deck where we spent the mornings sipping coffee and reading.
We had never been to Oak Island and Beatrice gave us great recommendations for how to enjoy our stay. (She was very responsive at all times- we never waited more than a few hours for a response, which was super helpful while planning and when we were there). We were able to enjoy the local yoga studio, massage, fish mongers, farmers market, and restaurants. The beach itself was nearly empty the whole time- just a few families here and there.
We recommend this rental to anyone who wants to relax and enjoy lovely Oak Island. We hope to come back soon!

I'm so glad you were able to enjoy the company Asian of an isolated back to nature beach experience combined with very close massage and yoga. Both are literally on the same block as the house. You can walk to them.i'm so glad you enjoyed some of the great local restaurants to and the local day trips.

“Sigh...this is the life...”
Reviewed May 5, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

I just came back from the most utterly relaxing vacation I've ever had. Beatrice's home is inviting, comfortable, and clean. I felt at home the entire time I was there. And the view... geesh words aren't adequate. I could have sat on that deck for my entire stay, and nearly did! My only regret was that I didn't catch the ferry and check out Bald Island. But I figure might as well leave something for the next time! And there absolutely will be a next time. Thank you Beatrice for being so quick to respond when I had questions and for opening up your lovely home to me and my old dog. I very much look forward to returning.

This house was perfect for our honeymoon. We spent lots of time on the beach and lots of time sipping drinks in the rocking chairs on the porch looking at the ocean. Beatrice was lovely and she made the stat perfect. We kayaked and saw some alligators and it was a great tour. We highly recccomend this house and Beatrice. We will be back! Also try turtle island and Josephs for dinner!

Patti, spending a holiday at the coast is my favorite thing to do. I enjoyed both Christmas, New Years and Easter this year. The comment you made to me that stands out the most is that our cottage is cozy. You said you felt comfortable and at home the minute you arrived. Yes, the views are stunning, but feeling right at home in the "views" is the best feeling! I am glad you enjoy Thanksgiving at our cottage.
