Unlike many beach destinations, the main attraction for us other than the beautiful beach is and always will be the sense of community here! Our neighbors are our friends and extended family. Please respect them as well as our cottage so we may offer a warm and inviting home year after to year to many more. Oak Island is our home away from home. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!
