"Modest Pleasures" on Oak Island, NC

As you approach “Modest Pleasures”, the first thing that will excite you is the full wraparound porch. Enter from the ocean side and imagine yourself sitting at the kitchen table for breakfast, gazing out at the vast Atlantic. This cozy bungalow has an amply outfitted kitchen to prepare meals from breakfast to dinner. On the deck, you can savor dinner while feeling the ocean breeze. Two comfortable chairs and a side table are ideal for discussing the day's finds & planning out the next day.

If you’re a fisherman (or visited one of multiple local fresh seafood markets), you will appreciate to prepare your meal on the charcoal grille downstairs. While you’re waiting for your dinner to finish, hang out on the retro swings, and peek over the dunes at the pelicans as they fly over the ocean searching for their dinner.

Head inside on cooler evenings to work a puzzle, play a board game or a round of poker, watch one of numerous movies supplied in the drawer or stream your favorite show on the intelligent tv. With a simple flick of the switch, cozy up with one of the various books or magazines in the warmth of an instant fireplace.

Both bedrooms have full-size beds and provide the added privacy and convenience of exiting through sliding glass doors onto the wraparound porch. One bedroom has a full view of the ocean and the other features an illuminating blue neon wave that is as alluring as looking at the crashing waves on the other side. Open the doors and breathe in the salt air. Nap listening to the seagulls, waves and the distant gleeful delights of kids building sandcastles. Dream about the day you spent with your toes in the sand sitting in one of the included beach chairs. Did you play any of the yard games? Giant Jenga, corn hole and yard-sized Connect Four are located in the utility room downstairs. Wash off the sand & salt using the outdoor shower on the deck walkway before heading in for a snack. Full-sized washer & dryer will get your bathing suits & towels ready for fun the next day.

The beach awaits you at the end of the short walkway & one of the many “Modest Pleasures“ that come with booking this beachfront bungalow is that you don’t have to find parking at a beach access because you have your very own!

What are you waiting for?! Hurry and book your stay now! We are excited to host you and your family's next vacation! Just don't forget to bring your flip flops, and leave your worries behind while you soak in the salty air breeze and striking Oak Island sun! Get ready to unplug, relax and appreciate the Modest Pleasures in life!

Strategies to get the perfect Wilmington, NC vacation property experience:

Sticking to your rental budget:

  • Summer time is high season in Oak Island. To get the best value, consider shifting your family's Wilmington, NC trip dates to the Spring or Fall shoulder seasons. May, September, and October offer excellent temperatures, , and greatly reduced traffic.
  • The earlier you can book a vacation home, the better your selection will be. The best vacation rentals are reserved very early. Reserving your rental 6-12 months before your vacation is recommended. Holiday gatherings are excellent times to search for and book your rental.
  • Some hosts offer discounts for active duty military and veterans. Remember to ask your property manager if discounts are available for your family.
  • Booking websites usually offer guests an option to obtain trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which costs between 1% - 5% of the booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any missed vacation time as a result of personal medical-related emergencies or weather, as well as ensuing additional evacuation charges, such as an unexpected hotel overnight or additional gasoline expenses. Trip insurance can be a a bank account-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask the property owner for specifics.
  • Find a copy of your local Wilmington, NC area magazine when you check-in. If your rental home doesn't have a copy, you can find them at local shops and fuel stations. In addition to great information, visitors guide magazines contain deals for local shops and restaurants.

Use filters to search efficiently:

  • Select dates and budget.
  • Note the number bedrooms and the bed configuration you need. Private Oceanfront Home! - Ocean View From Anywhere In The Home - Beach Gear - Sleeps 4 has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our Wilmington, NC rental home search.
  • Specific details about bedrooms and bed counts is often available on booking pages. If you don't see them listed, email the property management company before booking your home. Note that most listings specify the maximum guest capacity, which frequently includes sofa beds and bunks. You will need to determine what configuration is suitable for your family.
  • Does your family require unique amenities? Most rental search websites include amenity lists and search filters. Filtering by amenity will allow you to quickly find your ideal rental home.
  • Appropriate accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for guests with disabilities. Remember to confirm all necessary amenities are included before reserving a rental
  • Some rental properties allow pets, and some do not. Acceptable types of family pet, weight and breeds may be restricted, and additional costs may apply. Ask the property management company about your furry family members before booking.

Some things to know before you go:

  • Put the owner's contact information in your smartphone and wallet.
  • At Check-in, record any issues with the property and immediately contact the property manager. Keep records of all coorespondence.
  • Property managers are available to help! Feel free to ask questions before, during, or after your stay.
  • Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like loud visitors bothering your quiet neighborhood. Employ the golden rule for common sense. If they like you, locals might even recommend great beaches and places you would have not otherwise known about!
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local! Neighbors can typically help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to get the best seafood, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for fine dining?
  • Lock your rental while you're out and about. Protect your property!
  • Don't leave anything behind! Just before you drive away, take a walk through the property to make sure you've collected all personal belongings. Re-check closets, dressers, garages, and bathrooms for hidden treasure. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Go through the property a final time and look for damage. We advise walking through with the host whenever you can (often this isn't possible). If the property manager is not available, remember to take pictures of the property to record its condition.
  • Did your group have a wonderful vacation? Most vacation 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 imperfect and they failed to fix it in a reasonable manner, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make it a point as part of your feedback.
