***FULLY BOOKED UNTIL NOVEMBER - MESSAGE FOR WAITLIST ***

ISLE OF DOGS is a charming, pet-friendly beach cottage that is only a 7 minutes’ walk to the ocean (.3 miles) and the intracoastal waterway (.4 miles). This 3-bdr/2-bath one-story house is freshly renovated and nicely decorated, with an open floor plan between the living areas and kitchen. The back deck opens to a shaded backyard surrounded by a 6-foot privacy fence, with a vintage fire hydrant and its very own poop station!

The space
***FULLY BOOKED UNTIL NOVEMBER - MESSAGE FOR WAITLIST ***

ISLE OF DOGS is specifically designed with dog owners in mind (although everyone is welcome, dogs or no dogs). We do everything we can to create the perfect vacation for your entire family, which may include up to 6 people and 4 dogs (please read details under doggie details). Taking a vacation no longer has to mean leaving your furry family members behind. At ISLE OF DOGS, dogs are not just allowed – they are welcomed as our VIPs!

***The non-refundable pet fee is $100 per visit for the first 2 dogs and $25 for each additional dog (up to 4 total). Please note that the pet fee will be charged after the booking is approved (separately) and must be paid before check-in.***

THE COTTAGE:

ISLE OF DOGS is carpet-free, with luxury vinyl plank being the only flooring throughout the entire interior of the cottage. Every room has at least one open space for a dog bed or crate. The living room includes a large 55’ Smart TV, oversized leather sofa, two chairs and a large variety of board games. Blazing-fast Wi-Fi (gigabit fiber optic internet) is available throughout the house. Smart TVs include Disney+, Netflix and Amazon Prime.

The fully equipped kitchen includes a refrigerator, electric range, microwave, pots, pans, cooking tools and utensils. The coffee station includes a Keurig K-Duo machine that is perfect for coffee lovers. The whole family can enjoy meals together at either the large dining room table or the back patio table.

All bedrooms are decorated with simplicity and comfort in mind. Both bathrooms provide walk-in showers with hand-held shower heads. An outdoor shower on the back deck (with hot water) is perfect for rinsing off the sand after a long day at the beach!

The laundry room with washer and dryer help you keep things fresh from arrival through departure.

DECK AND BACKYARD:

The large porch and backyard aren’t just for the dogs. Beautiful oak trees shade the yard so it is enjoyable to sit out in the swing (or lay out in the hammock) even on hot sunny days, while the fire pit allows you to enjoy the outdoors even on cool nights. String lights surround the back deck and create the perfect ambience after sunset.

The backyard also contains a special bonus – the unique “she shed” provides a quiet reprieve away from the rest of the family (and is inspired by our personal experience with three pre-teen daughters). This tranquil hideaway includes a desk, office chair, floating egg chair and full-sized hangout bed (and easily doubles as a “man cave” as needed). Note that this is the only part of the house that does not have HVAC and where pets are not permitted – but it still has Wi-Fi.

DOGGIE DETAILS:

Oak Island is well-known not only for being a family-oriented beach but also one of the most dog-friendly beaches in North Carolina. Dogs that are leashed are permitted YEAR ROUND on Oak Island beaches, and dogs are allowed off their leash from October 15 through March 15. Oak Island also offers two different dog parks for your furry friends to enjoy, one that is only a few blocks away from the house.

ISLE OF DOGS welcomes up to 4 dogs. We do not discriminate based on breed or size, but due to the size of our cottage, we are unable to accommodate more than 2 XL-breed dogs (100+ pounds) per booking. All dogs must be housebroken and up-to-date on shots and must be crated when left in the house unattended (exceptions to crate requirement may be made by host on a case by case situation). Crates and food/water bowls are provided for your convenience (please contact the host to ensure crate sizes will work for your dogs). We are unable to accommodate animals other than dogs at this time. If you are bringing 4 dogs please note that we will limit the human occupancy to 4 people as we want to ensure that our cottage does not feel too crowed for our guests.

***The non-refundable pet fee is $100 per visit for the first 2 dogs and $25 for each additional dog (up to 4 total). Please note that the pet fee will be charged after the booking is approved and must be paid before check-in.***

AMENITIES AND RESERVATION DETAILS:

Check-in after 4pm / check-out before 10am (additional time for thorough cleaning required due to COVID-19). Odorban, Microban and Lysol products to clean the cottage.

We are proud to allow dogs on furniture, so all guests (even if not bringing a dog) must bring their own linens (sheets, pillow cases and quilt/duvet). If you prefer not to bring your own linens, we can connect you with a local company (Sharon's Linens in Oak Island) that will deliver linens to your door upon arrival. We provide bath towels (for both people and dogs), bath mats, toilet paper, soap and hair dryer. Guests should bring their own shampoo, conditioner, other toiletries and beach towels. (If you forget your shampoo, conditioner or bath soap we do have small bottles available on site that we refill for guests to use in case of emergency).

Two beach cruiser bikes are available for your riding pleasure.

Finally, ISLE OF DOGS is not suitable for someone who is allergic to dogs. (If you are still reading this listing, we doubt that is you!)

NEARBY RESTAURANTS AND ATTRACTIONS:

Climb to the top of a lighthouse. Kayak through salt marshes, waterways, creeks and inlets. Explore the ecosystems of a cypress swamp. Watch in awe as sea turtle hatchlings make their journey to the ocean.

There is never a shortage of fun and memorable things to see and do when you visit the beaches and maritime towns of the Brunswick Islands. No matter what you choose to do – by water, land or sky – these exciting attractions will have you and your family enjoying every minute of your stay.

Oak Island is located at the "mouth" of Cape Fear River which is the reason for our dark blue water. As a south facing beach Oak Island has amazing sunsets because the sun sets on the ocean or the beach and sometimes if there is ocean spray or rougher seas it illuminates the sunsets making it breathtaking.
