About this Property

  • Private vacation home

Where do we begin? The exceptional outdoor spaces and private pool with awe-inspiring vistas, the deep water dock that extends to the Montgomery Slough, or the well-appointed interior? With 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, The Crab Shack offers everything for an magnificant stay on Oak Island — all you need is your family and friends! You can even bring your boat (or rent one). Plus, this impressive West Beach home is only steps from the beach and has beach gear available, like chairs and a wagon.

You'll find the ideal blend of coastal-inspired outdoor and interior spaces to savor for entertaining or calming! The backyard getaway features a shining private pool, an broad sundeck, a covered area with a bar and grille, and painless access to the deep water dock. Upstairs, you'll discover a massive covered balcony at the back of the home that overlooks the inlet and offers ample seating, a dining table, and a daybed ideal for afternoon naps. The oceanside front porch is also covered and provides an additional outdoor area with rocking chairs for relaxing while taking in the ocean breeze.

Inside, the main living space features those impressive vistas, gorgeous vaulted ceilings, wainscoting details, and a surplus of oceanside vibes! Gather together on the comfortable couch in front of the gas fireplace to watch shows and movies on the flatscreen TV. Or, head to the entirely-equipped chef's kitchen to prepare your favorite drinks and culinary delights. It's outfitted with everything you'll need — including stainless steel appliances, ample counter space, and a humongous center island with bar seating for up to 3. If you happen to get a bit crabby without a morning coffee, the Keurig coffee maker here at The Crab Shack will do just the trick. And, when it's time to sit down for a meal, you can choose from the many outdoor tables or the main dining table that seats up to 8.

The 4 roomy bedrooms are only steps away and provide a setup that's great for multi-generational families, a couples getaway, or a hideaway with friends! The primary suite features opulent traditional furnishings, a king-size bed, and a flatscreen TV that can be adjusted to your preferred location by its swivel mount. Its ensuite bathroom delivers a spa-like experience with a double vanity and a enormous walk-in shower featuring floor-to-ceiling tile. Heading down the hall, you'll find a 2nd primary suite with a queen-size bed, flatscreen tv, and ensuite bathroom outfitted with a tub/shower combination and an extended vanity. The two remaining bedrooms are both equipped with a set of twin-size beds, flatscreen TVs, and share a bathroom featuring a tub/shower combination and extended vanity.

There's no way for us to include all the amenities you'll find at The Crab Shack — like the laundry room with a full-size washing machine and dryer, high-speed wireless internet, and an outdoor shower! And, when it's time to discover, you'll be mins. from The Point, Lone Rider at Oak Island, the Ocean Crest Pier, and all the top attractions in the area. What are you waiting for? Grab your next vacation by the claws, and book your stay today!

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 included with your reservation and contain the following: flat and fitted bed sheets, pillowcases, bath towels, hand towels, and washcloths.

We know you want to relax without stopping 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.

Our top Rental home booking tips:

When to go & When to reserve a rental home:

  • In the Wilmington, NC area, The earlier you can book, the better your selection will be. The most desirable rental properties are booked very early. Reserving your rental up to 12 months before your travel dates is recommended. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years Eve are excellent times to plan and book your rental property.
  • Summertime is high season in the Wilmington, NC area. To find the most suitable rental within your budget, we recommend booking in Fall or Spring. You'll benefit from lower rental rates, better selection, gorgeous weather and the absence of giant crowds at the beach and popular attractions. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook the holidays for a Wilmington, NC vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday vacation on the coast? Thanksgiving and Christmas are great times to gather with friends and family at the beach.
  • Owners sometimes offer discounts for veterans. Ask your property manager if special offers are available for your group.
  • Property management companies typically offer guests an option to add trip insurance. Trip insurance, which normally will cost anywhere between 1% - 5% of the base stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for missed days as a result of medical-related emergencies or weather, as well as evacuation costs or charges, such as an unanticipated hotel or extra gas expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a life-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your property manager for details.
  • Look for your local Wilmington, NC area magazine upon arrival. If your rental property doesn't have a copy, you can find them at local shops and fuel stations. In addition to great information, travel guide magazines contain money saving offers on local attractions, tours, restaurants, and shops.

Make a plan and pick the best Wilmington, NC rental home:

  • Begin by selecting the best vacation week and a maximum budget.
  • Decide how many bedrooms and the configuration your group needs. Private Deep Water Dock and Pool with Inlet Views has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
  • Precise information about bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is regularly accessible on booking websites. If they are not listed, call the host before you book the home. Note that most listings specify maximum guest capacity, which frequently includes pull-out couches. You'll need to establish what is right for your trip.
  • If your family is vacationing with pets, you must reserve a pet-friendly vacation rental. Ask for details on breed, size, and type restrictions. Some property managers charge pet deposits and fees.
  • Visiting for a single attraction? If so, use a map search to locate nearby properties.
  • Suitable accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for guests that require the use of a wheelchair. Remember to confirm all necessary amenities are available and included before booking

More tips for your visit:

  • Store the host's contact information in your smartphone and wallet.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a garage door opener, television set or appliance. Contact your host. They are there to help! A brief telephone call prevents quite a few issues.
  • Ensure you protect the rental owner (and your things!) by locking the property when you are out, just like you would back home.
  • Record any issues with the rental at check in, and immediately e-mail them to the owner. We especially recommend e-mails and text messages, as they usually contain built-in time stamps that are beneficial if damages are attributed to your stay.
  • Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking rules can make a stay significantly more pleasurable. You'll enhance your chance to make local friends, and resident neighbors are a fantastic resource to find the best local beaches.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Residents can frequently help. Who better to ask where to find the best seashells, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for crabbing?
  • When it's time to leave, take a walk-through to confirm you didn't leave anything behind. Make sure to check bathrooms, garages, and back yards for hidden treasure. 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 family have a great vacation? Many rental management companies make it easy for vacationers to provide comments. If your property and/or host was terrific, they always love to hear your praise. If anything was out of order and they failed to address it within reason, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make it a point as part of your review.

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.
