-- THE PROPERTY --

Bedroom 1: Queen Bed / Bedroom 2: Queen Bed / Bedroom 3: 2 Twin Beds / Bedroom 4: Queen Bed

Located on the breathtaking shores of Central Oak Island, "Windrift" offers a unique East Coast beach getaway ideal for a huge family or group of close friends. With an open floor plan, everybody can join in the conversation or getaway to one of the 4 private bedrooms. This bungalow has a freshly updated interior, plenty of nautically themed decor, and tons of cozy furnishings to make you feel right at home!

Start your morning on a healthy note with a brisk walk or jog along the ocean! After your morning walk, relax beneath the vaulted wood beam ceiling in the living room and appreciate a morning cup of coffee watching the sunrise while your appreciated ones roll out of bed.

The well-equipped kitchen features all of the cooking essentials along with a dishwasher and disposal to make clean up a breeze! Appreciate your culinary creations inside at the breakfast bar or the kitchen table, or bring them outside to the picnic table on the beach deck to listen to the tide while you dine.

There's no better place for an afternoon glass of sweet tea or wine than the back deck at "Windrift". Oak Island is particularly unique because it faces south and accepts you and your travel companions to watch BOTH sunsets and sunrises! Run down to the beach for a exhilarating swim and then rinse off with the private-enclosed outdoor shower before coming in for the evening.

Before you call it a nighttime, relax on the cozy living room couch and end the day by watching your favorite movie on the flat-screen TV in the living room. Make yourself comfortable on one of the 3 queen beds or the bedroom with 2 twin beds and rest up for another day in heaven!

-- THE LOCATION --

Oak Island is known for its laid-back reputation, local attractions, pier, and is ideal for families or people looking for a casual vacation. There are plenty of delicious local eateries around the island, and some local hots spots include Island Way, Swain Seafood Shack, Shagger Jacks, and Turtle Island Restaurant. It's never a boring time when you walk down to the scenic Ocean Crest Pier!

The Town of Southport is only a 13-mile drive from your door and a quintessential coastal fishing village you need to experience. Spend your time browsing through the local art galleries, antique shopping or take a shot at crabbing along the Inter Coastal Water Way. Dine along the water down at Yacht Basin, rock in one of the many chairs or swings watching the big ships pass by.

Southport also offers ferries to Fort Fisher and Bald Head Island if you want to adventure off the mainland! Bald Head Island has a lighthouse and some gorgeous vistas of the coast while Fort Fisher is home to the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher.

Some other options for fun include golfing at one of the local courses (Oak Island Golf Club and Lockwood Folly Country Club are great), driving south to Myrtle Beach for a day of outlet shopping, visiting Broadway at the Beach, or take a ride on the SkyWheel.

Fishermen definitely appreciate spending the morning casting their lines off the Ocean Crest Pier to try and reel in lunch. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for dolphins and other fish playing in the ocean while you fish!

How to find the best rental home experience:

Sticking to a rental home budget:

  • The sooner your group can reserve a home, the better your selection will be. The most desirable vacation rentals are booked early. Reserving your rental six - twelve months before your vacation is recommended. Winter holidays are excellent times to plan and reserve your rental.
  • June, July, and August are the most expensive months in Oak Island. To find the largest rental within your budget, we suggest booking in the Fall or Spring. You'll benefit from lower rental rates, greater selection, warm weather and the absence of giant crowds at Wilmington, NC restaurants, tours, and activities. Many vacationers use this strategy to find larger homes within budget, or to book an oceanfront rental that would otherwise be unavailable or unaffordable during the Summer. 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.
  • Property managers sometimes offer discounts for veterans and active duty military. Make sure to check with your property manager to see if discounts are available for your group.
  • Booking websites usually offer customers an option to purchase trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which will generally cost between 1% - 5% of the booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any missed vacation time as a result of medical-related issues or weather, as well as hurricane evacuation charges, such as an unanticipated hotel stay or additional gasoline expenses. Trip insurance might be a 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 when you check-in. If your rental doesn't have a copy, you can find them at local grocery stores, shopping centers, and visitor centers. In addition to great articles, travel guides have discounts for local accommodations, restaurants and tours.

Filter your search:

  • First, have your family commit to vacation dates and a budget.
  • Note the number beds and the configuration your family requires. Oak Island Beach Front Cottage has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our Wilmington, NC vacation rental search.
  • Specific information regarding bedrooms and bed types is usually available on booking websites. If you don't see them listed, call the property owner before you book your home. Note that most property listings specify the maximum guest capacity, which frequently includes sofa beds in living rooms.
  • If your family is bringing pets, search for a pet-friendly vacation rental. Get specifics on breed, weight, and type restrictions. Be aware that some hosts require additional pet deposits and fees.
  • Are you visiting for a single attraction or event? Use a map search to find nearby properties.
  • Proper accessibility can make or ruin a vacation for persons with disabilities. Remember to confirm all necessary amenities are available before reserving a rental

More considerations:

  • Review check in & check out procedures before traveling. Add a note with the instructions to your smartphone, and take a printed backup.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a hot tub, intercom or coffee maker. Contact your host. They are there to help! A brief call can prevent many issues.
  • Lock your rental while you are out. Protect the owner's property and your things!
  • To make certain that damages aren't linked to your stay, inspect the property for any problem areas upon check in. Speak to the rental manager immediately to record your findings. If there is a dispute, having a record of problems and contact attempts will be useful.
  • Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking restrictions can make a stay more pleasurable. Be a good neighbor. You'll magnify your chance to make some new local friends, and resident neighbors can be a fantastic source for finding the best local spots.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Local residents can typically help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to order the best nachos, have a great night out, or the best spots for BBQ?
  • Re-check every room of the vacation property to confirm that you've packed all personal items at check-out. Re-check bathrooms, dressers, and closets for hidden items. Clean the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Record a video to document the condition of the property.
  • Remember to leave feedback! Property owners rely on excellent ratings to compel more reservations. They'll be thankful for your review. Alternatively, if something went wrong, other vacationing families will appreciate that you share your feedback and help them have the best future vacation. Please be fair with your feedback If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the host could control the issue, and if so, whether they responded quickly to remedy it.

Victory Beach Vacations

Visitors who are on the hunt for the postcard-perfect vacation rental in the heart of the Carolina Beach or Kure Beach area will find an enticing selection and plenty of friendly customer service when they rent through Victory Beach Vacations. 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. Choose from luxury oceanfront houses and condos to more reasonbly priced 2nd row properties with oceanviews. Many properties include pools and hot tubs as well, perfect for outdoor entertaining, and many are dog friendly.   Lanier also notes that all properties are within walking or driving distance to Pleasure Island’s main attractions – Carolina Beach and Kure Beach. 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.
