4 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
1 King | 1 Queen | 1 Double | 2 Twin-over-twin Bunk Beds

Surrounded by tons of trees and greenery, this four-bedroom, two-bathroom property is a real getaway just two blocks from the ocean and with painless access to Oak Island attractions.

A short walk inland on the Scenic Trail leads over the canal and directly to the kayak and canoe launch. Among the other inland entertainments are the splash park, skate park, squash and tennis courts and playground equipment. The king bedroom and one of the queen bedrooms open onto waterway vistas. Two sets of twin-over-twin bunk beds and one bedroom with a double bed complete the sleeping accommodations for up to 10 people. Every piece of furnishings and decorative accent is top-quality. Each room is a delight, from the vibrant blue rocking chairs and side table on the front porch to the elegantly colored duvets on sleigh beds in two of the rooms and both sets of white bunk beds covered in fanciful ocean-themed linens in a sea-blue room. The bedrooms are carpeted and gleaming wood floors cover all other areas, with the exception of tile floor in the baths and separate laundry room.

A patterned blue and sand colored rug in the living room seating area compliments the like-colored couch and chairs. Flat screen TVs are in all bedrooms and there is wireless internet access throughout. The kitchen is not just state-of-the-art functional, but an eye-pleaser as well. Granite countertops on every work surface pick up the color and theme of the bathroom vanities. A mini-tile splash guard behind the stove adds the ideal accent to this exceptional kitchen. The dining area seats six, with an additional outdoor table and four chairs on the sizable screened back porch.

Stroll out to savor the marsh vistas on the dock added in 2020. A convenient enclosed hot and cold shower is located under the back deck. Generous windows throughout the home offer vistas of gently swaying trees from virtually every vantage point.

Though family pets are not allowed, please note that occasionally a dog may be present during an owner stay for those guests who are allergic to pets.

Tips for getting the perfect rental experience:

Money saving strategies:

  • To find the best vacation home within budget, we suggest reserving in Fall or Spring. You'll benefit from lower rental rates, greater selection, beautiful weather and the absence of large crowds at Wilmington, NC restaurants, tours, and activities.
  • In the Wilmington, NC area, The earlier you can reserve a home, the easier your search will be. The most desirable rental homes are booked early. Reserving your rental home 6-12 months before your vacation is recommended. Holidays such as Christmas and Thanksgiving are excellent times to plan and reserve your rental home.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may be qualified for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property manager if your group qualifies for a reduced rate.
  • Property managers often offer renters an option to obtain vacation insurance. Trip insurance, which normally will cost you 1% - 5% of the base stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for any missed time as a result of medical-related issues or weather disasters, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs, such as an unanticipated hotel stay or extra gas expenses. Trip insurance might be a a life-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask your host for program terms and fees.
  • Find a copy of your local visitors guide when you check-in. If your rental property doesn't have one, you can find them at local grocery stores, shopping centers, and visitor centers. In addition to great local articles, visitor guides contain deals for nearby attractions, tours, restaurants, and shops.

Make a plan and choose your Wilmington, NC rental home:

  • Start by having your family agree to trip dates and a budget.
  • Determine how many beds and the bed configuration your family needs. Ale of a Good Time: Large Screened Porch in Leafy Bower has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our Wilmington, NC rentals search.
  • Precise descriptions of bedrooms and bed counts is regularly accessible on booking pages. Otherwise, reach out to the property manager before reserving the home. Note that most listings specify the max. guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds in living rooms. You will need to determine what is right for your group.
  • Are you visiting for a single attraction? If so, use a map search to find nearby properties.
  • Suitable accessibility can make or ruin a vacation for persons with a disability. .
  • Traveling with pets? Although a number of vacation homes allow pets or animals, guidelines and costs vary per property. Allowable pet type, breed, and size are often limited. Remember to ask your host before booking, and study your agreement thoroughly! Pet fees or charges applied to your contract.

More considerations for your visit:

  • Take a copy of the host's contact number and check in/check out procedures for your rental home.
  • During arrival, document any issues with the property and immediately alert the host. Record all coorespondence.
  • Ask questions. You may want instructions for a fireplace, intercom or coffee maker. Contact your owner. They are there to help! A brief call prevents quite a few issues.
  • Respecting quiet hours and parking regulations can make a stay more pleasurable. You will magnify your chance to make some new local friends, and resident neighbors are usually an incredible resource to find the best local beaches and hangouts.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Locals can typically point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to order the best nachos, have a great night out, or the best spots for fishing?
  • Protect the owner (and your things!) by locking the rental when you are out, just like you would at home.
  • Re-check the property to make sure that you've packed all of your belongings on check-out day. Remember to check closets, dressers, garages, and bathrooms for hidden items. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Go through the property a final time and look for damage. We suggest walking through with the property manager whenever you can. If the property manager is not available, take photographs of the property to record its condition.
  • Did your group have a great vacation? Most rental websites make it easy for clients to provide reviews. If your property and/or property management company was terrific, they would love to hear about it. If anything was wrong and they failed to correct it in a reasonable manner, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make a note as part of your feedback.

Based in Carolina Beach in the coastal Cape Fear region, Victory Beach Vacations has more than 100 vacation rentals in all shapes and sizes to ensure that every vacationing family can find their dream home away from home on the beach.   When you book your Cape Fear getaway with Victory Beach Vacations, the fun doesn’t end when you leave the beach, it continues with an array of privately-owned properties outfitted with all of the amenities needed for a fabulous beach vacation.   Jenna Lanier, General Manager, explains that her family first opened the rental and property management business in 2002. At the forefront of Victory Beach operations is Lanier’s mother, Caroline Meeks. Meeks is both the Broker in Charge and co-owner with husband, Buck Meeks, who manages the Field Services team with Lanier’s husband, Scott.   For nearly 20 years, the Victory Beach team has worked tirelessly to establish a network of top-of-the-line rental properties for Cape Fear visitors to enjoy. “As far as our properties go,” explains Lanier, “they are all updated, well-furnished and appointed. “We have always performed post-cleaning inspections and since the pandemic, have put freshly laundered duvets over all of the comforters between rentals.”   Lanier emphasizes how important the guests experience is “we strive to give our guests a relaxing, stress free, memorable vacation.” This emphasis on customer service has led to Victory Beach Vacations having a 4.8 Google rating with over 300 reviews by happy owners and guests.In addition to Victory Beach’s superior sanitation practices, the company offers properties for every type of visitor.

The former, as described by Lanier, is the more commercialized of the two destinations and features a boardwalk, outdoor dining options and a plethora of weekly activities including fireworks, live music, amusement park pop-ups, and movies under the stars. Kure Beach offers a more residential feel with its fishing pier, intimate restaurants and family favorite, North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher.More water fun awaits, too. “There is a harbor and a canal that feed into the intercoastal. We have several properties on the harbor so guests can bring their boat, kayak, [or jet ski] and travel between islands,” says Lanier.   A stay with Victory Beach Vacations is an annual pilgrimage for most. “A large percentage of guests are previous guests. Some even reserve the same property for the next year as they’re checking out,” Lanier says. “It’s almost like it’s their personal vacation home.”   Even before guests arrive at their vacation destination, the Victory Beach Vacations’ website greets them with a live beach cam and exquisite aerial footage of both Carolina and Kure Beaches.
