Meet your home away from home on Oak Island! This exceptional 5 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom home has everything you need for a fun and calming North Carolina beach vacation. Highlights of “High Maintenance” include a massive private pool area with an outdoor bath, an elevator from the ground floor, and ocean vistas from the top level. It's also conveniently located on E Dolphin Drive — only steps from the beach, the Ocean Crest Pier, and Middleton Park.

Upon entering the main level, you'll be welcomed into the cavernous open floor plan at this property! The living space features a 48" flatscreen TV with a DVD player, ample seating including a reclining chair, and a gas fireplace. The well-appointed kitchen features a 2-level center island with double sink and bar seating, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, plenty of cabinet space, and is completely equipped with all the supplies you'll need to prepare a home-cooked meal. The dining area completes this space and has seating for 6.

Right down the hallway, you'll find the extravagant master suite purposefully designed to be the ideal getaway to rest and relax after a day exploring the island! It has a comfortable king-size bed, 55" flatscreen TV, and 2 walk-in closets. The lavish ensuite bathroom features a sizable tile shower and a whirlpool tub. There's also a 2nd bedroom on this level with a twin trundle bed that's great for the youngsters.

Upstairs features a 2nd living area featuring a 50" flatscreen TV, wet bar with a mini-refrigerator, an air hockey table, and a roomy bathroom with a tub/shower combination! There is 1 king bedroom and 2 queen bedrooms on this floor; each with 43" flatscreen TVs, roomy closets, and ceiling fans. This level is finished by 2 balconies, one overlooking the ocean vistas and another that will give you a birds-eye view of the pool in the backyard.

Speaking of the backyard, this is the ultimate outdoor sanctuary to appreciate the oceanside breezes and sunshine! There's a massive in-ground pool with many lounge chairs for sunbathing or reading your favorite book, a deck with a covered area, and an outside bath. For those who adore grilling, you'll also find an outdoor grille available.

Like we mentioned above, this OKI vacation rental comes complete with an elevator for those who may have difficulty with stairs or to assist with moving your belongings in and out of the home. There are too many other amenities to add, including wireless internet access should you need to stay connected during your time here.

Guest reservations of 3 to 21 nights come with a valuable credit to use towards beach gear units during your stay! You may use your credit for bicycles, beach chairs and umbrellas, beach carts, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, and more! The choice is yours! For this home you are eligible for up to $315.00 credit on any beach gear! Book now to reserve your gear today!

Please Note: Linens are supplied with your reservation and contain the following: flat and fitted bed sheets, pillowcases, bath towels, hand towels, and washcloths.

We know you want to begin your vacation without any stops at the store when you get to the island. To get you started, we provide a welcome kit that includes trash bags, paper towels, toilet paper, dishwasher pod, washing machine pod, dishwashing soap, hand soap at every sink, bath soap, and shampoo/conditioner.

As you will find when selecting dates on the calendar, there are minimum stay requirements based on the season. There is a 7 nighttime minimum with a mandatory Saturday to Saturday rental pattern in the peak summer months, and there is more flexibility in the slower seasons.

Tips and Tricks to get the perfect Wilmington, NC vacation property experience:

Get the most from your rental budget:

  • To find the best rental home for your budget, we strongly suggest reserving in Fall or Spring. You'll enjoy lower rental rates, greater selection, warm weather and the absence of large crowds at Wilmington, NC restaurants, beaches, and activities. Many vacationers use this strategy to reserve larger homes, or to book a beach front rental that would otherwise be unavailable during the high season.
  • Book your vacation home as early as possible. Rental schedules usually open 12 months in advance (or in September just after Summer ends). Many groups book their Summer rental homes during Thanksgiving and Christmas gatherings. Book before these holidays for best selection.
  • Veterans and Active Duty Military members may qualify for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property management company or host if your group qualifies for a price reduction or discount.
  • Property management companies frequently offer customers an option to obtain vacation insurance protection. Trip insurance, which normally costs 1% - 5% of the base stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for any missed time as a result of medical-related emergencies or weather, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation charges, such as an unexpected hotel stay or extra gas expenses. Trip insurance might be a a welcome relief if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your host for program terms and fees.
  • Often, management companies supply Wilmington, NC area travel guide magazines that include money-saving deals, either offered independently by local companies, or through a relationship with the management company and the business itself. You can also find visitors guide and coupon books at local shops and grocery stores.

Use filters to search efficiently:

  • First, have your family decide on the best dates and a max budget.
  • Decide how many bedrooms and what type of bedroom configuration your family needs. Oceanview with Private Pool & Elevator, Steps from the Beach. High Maintenance has 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our rentals search.
  • Precise descriptions of bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is normally available on booking pages. If you don't see them listed, email or call the property manager before you reserve the vacation property. Note that most property listings specify maximum guest capacity, which typically includes pull-out couches and bunk beds. You will need to establish which bed configuration is optimal for your family.
  • Visiting for a specific event? Try a map search to locate nearby properties.
  • Suitable accessibility can make or break a vacation for guests with disabilities. Make certain to inquire about wheel chair accessibility, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs.
  • Some rental properties allow pets, but others don't. Allowable types of dog or cat, size and breeds may be restricted, and additional costs may apply. Ask the property manager about your furry family members before booking.

Tips to have a great stay:

  • Get the host's contact number and entry/exit procedures for your rental. Store the manager's contact information in your smartphone.
  • Make a record of any issues with the rental during check in, and immediately e-mail them to the property manager. We especially recommend e-mails and text messages, as they usually contain time stamps that are helpful if a dispute arises.
  • Hosts are available to help! Feel free to ask questions during your stay.
  • Respecting quiet hours and parking regulations can make a stay more pleasurable. Be a good neighbor. You will enhance your chance to make some new local friends, and resident neighbors can be an excellent resource to find the best local beaches and hangouts.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Neighbors can usually point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to order the best nachos, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for shopping?
  • Ensure you protect the rental owner (and your stuff!) by locking and securing the home while you are gone, just like you would at home.
  • Upon check-out, complete a walk-through to make sure you have not forget anything. Re-check closets, dressers, garages, and bathrooms for hidden treasure. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Inspect the rental a final time and keep an eye out for damage. We advise walking through with the host whenever you can (often this isn't possible). If the host isn't available, remember to take video and pictures of the property to record its condition at check-out.
  • Did your family have a terrific time? Most vacation rental websites make it easy for customers to provide comments. If your rental property and/or property management company was terrific, they would love to hear about it. If anything was imperfect and they failed to correct it reasonably, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make a note as part of your feedback.
