The Wooden Whale is a 3br/2ba getaway located in the peaceful NW area of calming OKI, and has all the amenities you need to find that place of respite. Comfortably accommodating up to six people (including kids), we think you’ll appreciate your stay at The Wooden Whale!

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.

**We take cleaning & sanitizing our home very seriously. Our expert cleaning crew abides by all industry standards and practices procedures endorsed by the CDC/WHO.**

Appreciate fast access to one of just two bridges onto the island and beach access points. Two min. drive/10 min. walk to the ocean and an even shorter walk to the Intracoastal Waterway. Oak Island has a paid parking program that charges for the majority of public parking spaces along the beach from April 1 - September 30 between the hours of 9am-5pm. Paid parking passes are purchased at time of use through a mobile app at a rate of $5/hour, $20/day or $80/week. Town of Oak Island public parking spaces are clearly marked and are generally located at public beach access points and town-managed recreation areas such as Middletown Park. Pay by downloading the Surfcast by Otto Connect app and/or by scanning the QR code on parking signage.

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, comfortable and well-appointed. The space has been professionally-designed and features an open floor plan with tons of natural light. Unwind under the cooling breezes of ceiling fans (in each room), savor a cross-breeze from the full screen front door to the screened in porch off of the kitchen. High-end laminate floor and ceramic tiled floor in wet areas make clean up painless.

The living room features a 55” intelligent TV with access to Netflix & Hulu (bring your login info!). The kitchen is packed full of dishes, cookware, modest appliances and other essentials. We appreciate to prepare 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.

The Primary bedroom has a King bed, walk-in closet, en-suite bathroom with double vanity & garden tub, dresser, bedside tables, quilt/coverlet, and pillows. The Queen bedroom has a Queen bed, dresser, bedside tables, quilt/coverlet, and pillows. The Twin bedroom has two twin beds, dresser, desk/bedside table, quilts/coverlets, and pillows. Both Guest bedrooms have close access to a hallway bath. Please note that sheet sets (including pillow cases) and bath towels are not supplied. We are happy to recommend local rental services if you are interested. Our home comfortably accommodates up to six people (including kids).

The screened in back porch is the ideal place to sip your morning coffee, read a book curled up on the couch or in a hammock chair on a rainy day, or enjoy an evening drink 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 hammock for two in the cavernous backyard! Outdoor games including cornhole and jenga are available for use as well. And don't forget the newly-installed in-ground fire pit with accompanying six Adirondack chairs. Great for cooler evenings! A gas grille has been supplied for guest use.

The real star of the island is the beach itself. It's a short distance by bicycle 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 magnificant sunsets and calm waters.

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

The Wooden Whale is located very close to the Swain's Cut Bridge (the "new bridge"), one of two access points to the island. There are two grocery stores on the island (Food Lion and Publix on Oak Island Drive) in addition to Lowe's Foods located just across the Middleton bridge. The island is motor and pedestrian-friendly. Oak Island Drive has sidewalks that run it's length and the neighborhood streets are peaceful and calm.

We have two bicycles, beach chairs & umbrellas for you to use, and an impressive rental service to recommend if additional items are needed. Two lounge chairs are also available, although we ask you refrain from taking them to the beach - they are ideal for sunbathing at the home.

Sadly, no family pets are allowed and smoking is stringently prohibited in the home. 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 appreciate the Carolina blue skies as much as we do.

Tips to get the very best Wilmington, NC rental experience:

Getting the best value:

  • Book your vacation rental as early as possible. Rental schedules usually open 12 months in advance (or in September just after Summer ends). Many groups reserve their Summer rental homes during Christmas and Thanksgiving gatherings. Book before these holidays for best selection.
  • June, July, and August are the most expensive months in the Wilmington, NC area. Reserve your vacation home in the Fall or Spring to get the benefit of warm weather while saving money and avoiding crowds. Many vacationers use this method to find larger homes within budget, or to book a beach front rental that would otherwise be unavailable or unaffordable during the Summer months.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may be qualified for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective host whether your vacationing group qualifies for a price reduction.
  • Booking websites usually offer renters an option to add trip insurance. Trip insurance, which normally costs 1% - 5% of the base reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for missed trip time as a result of personal medical-related catastrophes or weather, as well as ensuing additional evacuation costs, such as an unanticipated hotel overnight or extra gasoline expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a bank account-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your host for additional information.
  • Find a copy of your local Wilmington, NC visitors guide magazine upon checking in. If your rental home doesn't have a copy, you can find them at local grocery stores and visitor centers. In addition to great local information, visitors guides have offers and deals for nearby shops and restaurants.

Use filters to search efficiently:

  • Select your dates and max budget.
  • Note the number beds and what type of bedroom configuration you need. 2022 Beach Retreat at The Wooden Whale - Fire Pit, Gas Grill & Memories! has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our rental home search.
  • Precise details about bedrooms and bed counts & types is generally accessible on booking pages. If not, contact the property manager before booking the vacation home. Remember that most listings specify maximum guest capacity, which frequently includes sofa beds and bunks. You'll need to establish what is suitable for your trip.
  • If your group is bringing pets, you'll need to search for a rental that allows animals. Ask for details on breed, size, and type restrictions. Note that some property owners charge pet deposits and fees.
  • Are you visiting for a specific attraction? Use a map search to browse nearby properties.
  • Proper accessibility amenities can make or break a vacation for the less-mobile. Make certain to ask about specialized equipment and wheel chair accessibility.

Tips for your stay:

  • Store the manager's contact information in your smartphone.
  • Property managers are great sources of help! Don't be shy to ask any questions before, during, or after your stay.
  • Protect the owner (and your stuff!) by locking and securing the home while you are away, just like you would at home.
  • During arrival, record any issues with the rental property and immediately alert the owner. Record all coorespondence.
  • Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like unpleasant vacationers bothering your home life. Use the golden rule for common sense. Happy residents may even recommend great beaches and places you would have not otherwise known about!
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local! Neighbors can frequently help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to get the best breakfast in town, have a great night out, or the best spots for fine dining?
  • Don't leave anything behind! Before departing, walk through the rental property to reconfirm you've collected everything. Re-check bathrooms, dressers, and closets for hidden treasure. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Record a video to document the condition of the property.
  • Did your family have a great time? Many vacation rental websites make it easy for vacationers to provide feedback. If your property and/or property management company was great, they would love to hear it. If anything was inoperable and they failed to address it within reason, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make a note as part of your review.
