The Wooden Whale is a 3br/2ba retreat nestled in the quiet west end of OKI, boasting all the amenities you may need. Accommodating up to six total, we think you’ll enjoy your stay!

Looking for a place to work remotely during these strange times? The Wooden Whale is a great spot to connect for work purposes and then disconnect as well.

Our home is just a 10 minute walk to the ocean and an even shorter walk to the Intracoastal Waterway.

The space
The Wooden Whale is our home away from home. We’ve put a lot of time, energy and effort into making it a space that is welcoming and comfortable. The space has an open floor plan and lots of natural light. Relax under the cooling breezes of ceiling fans (in each room), enjoy a cross-breeze from the full screen front door to the screened in porch off of the kitchen. High-end laminate flooring and ceramic tiled flooring in wet areas make clean up easy.

The living room boasts a 55” smart TV and complimentary Wifi, Netflix & Hulu are included. The kitchen is packed full of dishes, cookware, small appliances and other essentials. We love to cook and have taken great care to include all the elements needed to create memorable meals. Curious to know if we have a particular item, just ask! There is a separate laundry room and common cleaning supplies available as well.

A spacious Master bedroom has a king size bed and en suite bathroom with double vanity and a garden tub. The second bedroom has a queen size bed and the third bedroom has two twins. All beds have pillowtop mattresses and each bedroom contains dressers for storage, extra pillows & blankets, in addition to closets with hangers and plenty of storage space for longer stays.

Please note, our home comfortably accommodates up to six people (including children). Also, bed linens, bath towels & beach towels are NOT provided.

The screened in back porch is the perfect place to sip your morning coffee, read a book curled up on the sofa or in a hammock chair on a rainy day, or enjoy an evening beverage with friends and family. Just outside the porch, you’ll find a patio complete with a dining table and chairs for six, and an outdoor shower for rinsing off after a fun day at the beach! Plus, enjoy a comfy hammock for two in the spacious backyard! And don't forget the in-ground fire pit with accompanying six Adirondack chairs. Great for cooler evenings! A gas grill is available for guest use.

The real star of the island is the beach itself. It's a short distance by bike or car with over 60 public beach access points. No matter the time of the year, your time spent at the beach will be memorable. Our absolute favorite place in the world is “The Point” – the westernmost part of the Island where you can enjoy outstanding sunsets and calm waters.

We have two bicycles, six beach chairs & two umbrellas for you to use, and an excellent rental service to recommend if additional items are needed.

Sadly, no pets are allowed and smoking is strictly prohibited in the house. Please dispose of any cigarette butts outside appropriately. Evidence of neglect in this area will forfeit your security deposit.

We welcome you to our home and hope you love the Carolina blue skies as much as we do.

Where you’ll be

Oak Island, North Carolina, United States

We love the western part of the island. It's quiet but offers quick access to everything that makes OKI special. Take a left out of the driveway to reach the Intracoastal waterway - calm waters perfect for fishing. Take a right and arrive at the beach in less than 10 minutes (walking) or 2 (by car/bike)! Lots of lovely oaks adorn the island and the beaches, well, they speak for themselves.
