Welcome to the BOW????WOW • Beach ???? Bungalow™. A peaceful, dog-friendly haven for you and your pups. This cozy, comfortable “home away from home” is close (1/2 mi) to the beach, local shopping, and eateries, but in a peaceful neighborhood away from the hordes. Sensational screened porch for calming, plus a enormous fenced backyard to appreciate. Full home water filtration system with reverse osmosis and double-filtered drinking water at the kitchen sink.
• ????Dogs ALWAYS welcome

• ???? PET FEE REQUIRED if bringing DOGS

* Please treat our home with respect as you would your own.
* No events, no events.
* No smoking, vaping or similar due to guest/host allergies.
* Family Animals allowed - Dogs only - currently 50 pounds or less - No more than 2 dogs per reservation - $100 pet fee required. [????size+quantity exceptions on a per reservation basis with host approval, which would include additional pet costs of $50 per dog - future plans will include all sizes with quantities up to five dogs - stay tuned????]
* Please clean up after dogs both inside and out - Dog waste bags are included as a courtesy for that purpose, in case you forget to bring your own.
* Please ensure dogs or guests don’t push against the screen in the doors leading into the backyard. Those screens can push out and tear rather comfortably. Instead, use the door knobs/handles to open and shut all doors.
* Outdoor tub is cast-iron, so if the outside air temperature is lower than 65 degrees, then the water gets cold quickly.

This is a one-level, family-aligned, dog-friendly environment for both you and your well-behaved pups to savor. The property has a sizable, fenced backyard with plenty of space to allow your dogs to play without worry. The home is simple and cozy with retro and boho touches all over. And, the tongue-and-groove cathedral ceilings, with post-and-beams throughout, add to the open-concept feeling. We adore to think of it as simple with tons of “Bow•Wow”! ????

You will have full access to the entire property, with exception of the owner's closet in the laundry room, which contains basic tools and supplies for owner maintenance purposes.

We are always available via AirBnB messaging, text, or phone call, in order to answer any questions or concerns that you may have before, during, and after your stay at our property. We also have dedicated team members available to address immediate, urgent needs.

???? WE LOVE DOGS! ???? And, we lovingly welcome your pups into our home as guests. We definitely want each furry family member to enjoy every moment of visiting with you on Oak Island. All we respectfully ask in return is for guests to always be responsible pet owners during their stay, so we can continue welcoming all dogs into our “Bow-Wow Beach Bungalow”. See dog-related rules below.

* A max. of two (2) dogs allowed.
* No dogs over fifty (50) pounds allowed presently due to the current size of installed dog doors. However, we have plans to remedy this in the future, so we can allow all-size dogs.
* A $100.00 non-returnable pet fee covers up to two dogs during your stay. The fee must be paid during initial booking or directly after accepted booking via a Host request made through AirBnb. Pet fee must be paid prior to check-in.
* Please indicate truthfully during the booking process whether you plan to bring dogs. We use the honor system of trust during booking, but we always verify during check-in or at some point thereafter.
* Please pick up and clean up after your dogs both outside and inside. Our housekeeper and groundskeeper enjoy this tremendously.

• ???? Please read ALL “House Rules” prior to booking

Our top Rental home booking tips and tricks:

Get the most from your rental home budget:

  • Book your Wilmington, NC vacation home in Spring or Fall to enjoy warm weather while saving money and avoiding crowds. Many vacationers use this strategy to reserve larger homes, or to book a beach front rental that would otherwise be unaffordable during the high season. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook Winter holidays for a Wilmington, NC vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday on the coast? Christmas, Thanksgiving, and New Years Eve are great times to gather with loved ones at the beach.
  • In the Wilmington, NC area, The sooner your group can book a rental home, the better your selection will be. The best rental properties are reserved early. Booking your rental home 6-12 months before your vacation dates is recommended. Holiday gatherings are excellent times to search for and reserve your vacation rental.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may be qualified for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective host if your vacationing group qualifies for a special rate.
  • Property managers frequently offer renters an option to add vacation insurance. Trip insurance, which costs 1% - 5% of the stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for missed time as a result of personal medical-related catastrophes or weather, as well as ensuing additional evacuation costs, such as an unexpected hotel or extra fuel expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a life-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your property manager for more information.
  • Find a copy of your local visitors guide when you arrive at the rental property. If your rental home doesn't have a copy, you can find them at local shops and fuel stations. In addition to great local information, visitors guide magazines contain discounts for local attractions, tours, restaurants, and shops.

How to choose the best vacation home in Oak Island:

  • Select a designated group leader, choose your trip dates, and select a spending budget.
  • Decide how many beds and what type of bedroom configuration your family needs. ????Cozy Bungalow ????Dog Friendly ????Close to the beach (less than 1\/2 mile) has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
  • Precise information about bedrooms and bed types is almost always accessible on booking websites. If they are not listed, email the property management company before you reserve the home. Remember that most property listings specify the max. guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds in living rooms. You'll need to establish what bed configuration is best for your family.
  • If there's a certain Wilmington, NC beach you long to visit, search for properties that are either nearby, or those that cater to your requirements.
  • Appropriate accessibility can make or break a vacation for guests that require the use of a wheelchair. Make certain to inquire about specialized equipment and wheel chair accessibility.
  • If your family is vacationing with pets, filter your search for a property that allows animals. Ask for specifics on breed, size, and type restrictions. Often, hosts charge pet deposits and fees.

Some things to know before you go:

  • Be sure you get the owner's contact number and arrival/departure procedures for your .
  • To ensure that damages are not attributed to your family's visit, inspect the rental for any problem areas during check in. Contact the host right away to document any damages. If there is a dispute about legal responsibility later, having the recorded problems and contact attempts will be useful.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a garage door opener, stereo or thermostat. Contact your property manager. They are there to help! A brief phone call prevents many issues.
  • Respecting quiet hours and parking regulations can make a stay significantly more pleasurable. Be a good neighbor. You'll enhance your chance to make some new local friends, and resident neighbors are usually an excellent resource to find the best local restaurants, beaches, and hangouts.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Local residents can frequently help. Who better to ask where to see a beautiful sunrise or sunset, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for crabbing?
  • Ensure you protect the rental owner (and your things!) by locking and securing the home while you are away, just like you would back home.
  • Don't leave anything behind! Before you drive away, take a walk through the property to confirm you've collected all belongings. Make sure to check bathrooms, dressers, and closets for hidden belongings. Clean the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Document the condition of the property at check-out. We recommend taking a video during your final walk-through.
  • Did your group have a terrific time? Most rental websites make it easy for clients to provide comments. If your rental property and/or property management company was great, they would love to hear it. If anything was imperfect and they failed to fix it within reason, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make it a point as part of your comments.
