  • Private vacation home

Sawyer’s Sandcastle is ideal for guests desiring both luxury and impressive vistas. Featuring 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths with a private saltwater pool, 6 seater electric golf cart and a 3 hole putting green, there’s plenty of space to spread out and appreciate all this fashonable home has to offer. Pet friendly with a fenced back yard, you are just steps away from the beach, Intracoastal waterway for kayak launches and the NEW Lonerider Brewery & Restaurant.

Before we talk about the home, let’s first discuss the location. There is a reason that this home is ideal for guests who want luxury vacation living. Located at the ideal point between the ocean and the sound, you’ll have ocean or sound vistas from every room. As Oak Island faces south, you’ll experience gorgeous sunrises over the ocean, and sunsets over the sound. This is the area you’ll want to visit to get the most out of your vacation. Leave your car in the driveway and walk or bicycle to the ocean where fishing, swimming, shelling and basking in the warm sun will have you casual in no time. Or leave from the back of the home and visit the sound, where smaller waves and currents provide the ideal spot for exploring tidal pools, looking for sand dollars and starfish, crabbing or kayaking. The Lonerider, Oak Island’s 5-star rated brewery and restaurant, is just steps away from the home.

Now on to the handsome home. Sawyer’s Sandcastle as mentioned is located between the ocean and the sound. It features 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, with striking vistas of the Atlantic Ocean and enormous heated (additional charge), private pool that is ideal for sizable families or groups. You will appreciate the cavernous, peaceful and uncrowded beach directly in front of the home and the spectacular vistas from the two elevated balconies.

The top floor of the home features a master bedroom complete with tray ceilings, king sized bath. The master shower also features a calming “rain shower” shower head. The master bedroom windows provide a stunning view of the sounds and just outside the door is the balcony overlooking both the pool and the sound.

Also on this floor is a huge gourmet kitchen with high-end appliances, recessed as well as chandelier lighting, a huge dining table and a center island with additional seating. The open floor plan accepts meals to be prepared while conversing with the family and friends gathered in the living room.

Downstairs, you’ll find four more bedrooms and two additional baths. 3 bedrooms include queen sized beds, while the fourth is ideal for the kids. This room has a bunk bed (full on bottom, twin on top), and a single bed. All bedrooms have Roku TV's. Log into your own apps or savor basic cable as well.

Outside, you’ll be sure to enjoy the large pool (which can be heated upon request at an additional charge in the cooler months), putting green to practice those putt-putt skills, fenced back yard ideal for keeping the family pet at home, and a bigger outdoor shower. We also have a charcoal grille. For time on the beach, we have beach chairs, games and the trendy Shibumi Shade available for your convenience. With plenty of outdoor seating all around, the entire family can enjoy being outdoors, talking, laughing, swimming and making memories that will last for a lifetime.

Feel complimentary to ride the extravagant golf cart around the island and take in the beautiful sunrise and sunset vistas from the Point. Oak Island accepts for the golf cart to be utilized where the speed limit is 35 MPH.

This home also features an elevator which is helpful for those with mobility issues as well as bringing groceries and suitcases upstairs.

Our top Oak Island vacation rental tips:

When to book & When to go:

  • Book your Wilmington, NC vacation home in the Fall or Spring to enjoy beautiful weather while saving money and avoiding crowded roads, restaurants, and activities. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook Winter holidays for a Wilmington, NC vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday vacation near the ocean? Thanksgiving and Christmas are great times to gather with friends and family at the beach.
  • The earlier your group can reserve a vacation home, the easier your search will be. The most desirable vacation rentals are booked early. Booking your vacation rental six to twelve months before your vacation dates is recommended. Winter holidays are excellent times to plan and book your rental home.
  • Some hosts and property managers offer special rates for active duty military and veterans. Ask your property manager if special offers are available for your family before you book.
  • Management companies and individual rental owners typically offer guests an option to purchase trip insurance. Trip insurance, which generally will cost anywhere between 1% - 5% of the stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for missed time as a result of medical-related catastrophes or weather, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unanticipated hotel overnight or additional gas expenses. Trip insurance can be a a welcome relief if the unforeseen happens. Ask your property manager for specifics.
  • Often, property management companies and vacation rental houses supply Wilmington, NC area visitors guides which often include coupons, either offered directly by local businesses, or through a partnership between the property management company and the business itself. You can also find visitors guide and coupon books at local grocery stores, shopping centers, and visitor centers.

  • Property managers are there to help! Don't be shy to ask any questions during your stay.
  • Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking policies can make a stay significantly more pleasurable. You'll increase your chance to make some new local friends, and resident neighbors are often an incredible resource to find the best local beaches and restaurants.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local! Neighbors can frequently help. Who better to ask where to order the best nachos, have a great night out, or the best spots for crabbing?
  • Lock your rental while you're out. Keep your property safe!

  • Record a video to document the condition of the property.
  • Leave a review! Property owners rely on great feedback to propel more bookings. They'll be thankful for your review. Alternatively, if something wasn't right, other families will appreciate that you share your experience and help them have the best future vacation. Please be objective. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the host could control the issue, and if so, whether they responded quickly to remedy it.
