Our cozy updated 3BR cottage promises a fresh and clean experience that is ideal for your family beach week or weekend getaway. Close to everything Oak Island has to offer - sand, surf, fishing, boating and biking - whatever your heart desires. A well stocked kitchen to enjoy a dinner in or treat yourself to one of the many delicious Oak Island and Southport restaurants. Guests rave about the relaxing screened porch with the "Where Have You Been All My Life" hanging bed. Come, relax and enjoy!

The space
Located in the Tranquil Harbor section of Oak Island, the home is 5 blocks from the beach where you can view the most unforgettable sunsets. The home is just around the corner from the free public boat launch so bring your boat. Located on a quiet residential street, it is an easy stroll or bike ride to several restaurants, the Food Lion, Dairy Queen and shopping. Southport is just a short drive away for a day of shopping, dining, or a trip to Bald Head Island by ferry. If you are more adventurous, take the Fort Fisher ferry to Carolina Beach and have a drink at the tiki bar on the beach, or drive to Wilmington and explore the battleship.

The welcome information provides all you need to know about easy access public beach parking, places to eat and things to do. If you are interested in renting bikes, kayaks and other beach toys we can help you arrange for them to be delivered to the house. Please just ask.

The home has been stylishly decorated with maximum comfort in mind. Guests often comment on the cleanliness and attention to detail, The house is all one level and perfect for those that may have some mobility issues. There are three bedrooms and it sleeps six people with a king bed, a queen bed, and two twin beds. There is a master bathroom, a shared bathroom for the other two bedrooms and an outdoor shower to rinse off the salt and sand at the end of a day at the beach. The piece de resistance is the screened porch with its table for six and a hanging bed. Take a nap or even spend the night on it. I promise the cool breeze of ocean air and the sounds of the island will lull you to a blissful sleep. The house comes with a fully stocked kitchen and plenty of other creature comforts to make you feel right at home. There is an outdoor grill for all you grill masters. There is high speed Wifi at the house and the TV has access to all the local channels as well as Hulu and Netflix. There is also access to Amazon Prime if you have an account. If you elect to disconnect, there are books and games available too.

All linens and towels are included, as is body wash, shampoo, conditioner, kitchen soap, and cleaning supplies. We will provide you with a couple rolls of paper towels and toilet paper and trash bags to get you started. We do not provide Beach Towels or beach chairs so please don’t forget to bring them with you (or I can tell you where to rent them).

The Bean is located 2 hours from Raleigh, 3 ½ hours from Charlotte and an easy 6 ½ hour drive from the DMV. There is no excuse not to visit.

Where you’ll be

Oak Island, North Carolina, United States

There is a nature center, public boat access, and public pier just a few home sites away. We walk to the beach for exercise in the morning but carrying a donkey load of beach things on your back can make for an angry jaunt. Your car may be better than your back for long days on the shore. No loud shenanigans after 10 pm or midnight games of tag please...our neighbors will call us if the rukus gets to rukusitable. Hashtag sad face if the po po show show.

Hi. I am Jennifer. I am a busy working mom. I enjoy spending time with my kids when they are willing to be seen with their mother, (the joy of teenagers), and when they aren't, I love to travel. Prior to COVID, I had been to 6 countries in the past 18 months. I have enjoyed staying in Airbnb homes around the world. I find them so much more interesting than hotels. I recently had the opportunity to go to Cuba; a total bucket list item. I loved it and look forward to returning again some day. I am now hosting because I want to share the joy I feel when I am at my cozy Oak Island house near the beach; just as others have shared their homes with me. My life's motto is - it is better have tried and failed than to have never tried.

During your stay

I am a text or phone call away. I have a house manager very nearby if I am personally not on the island.
