Welcome to the Turtle Shell, OKI’s best, offering one of the biggest private pools on the island (40X16)! Appreciate handsome broad ocean vistas, direct beach access, as well as the Ocean Crest Pier and Island Way Restaurant just steps away across the street. This property provides ample on-site parking so no need to pay additional to go to the beach. As many of our reviews attest, this location simply is the finest!

Please savor the private pool which includes a generous tanning ledge, also great for young kids to splash around on, a massive deep end with bench seating to appreciate drinks while calming in the pool and tons of space for lap swimming as well. Please inquire about the heating and cooling function for an additional fee.

The Turtle Shell offers outdoor space running the gamut from shaded decks to under-home picnic areas to sunshine by the pool with ample lounge seating for all. The covered front porch is a favorite spot to enjoy coffee in the morning and happy hours in the afternoon while watching the waves crash with beautiful unobstructed vistas of the ocean and pier. The covered area under the home is the ideal place to have a shrimp boil on the two picnic tables or stay covered while cooking on the gas grille. The covered back porch overlooks the pool and offers respite from the sun and wind. There are many places to congregate and play games or watch impressive sunsets.

This beautiful vacation rental features an open floor plan featuring an refreshed kitchen with ocean vistas and space for all the chefs in the family including stainless steel appliances and quartz counter tops next to an upsized dining table with ample bench seating to accommodate family. The kitchen and dining areas open into the sizable living room which includes generous seating and a enormous screen TV with intelligent features and a DVD library all with the same striking ocean vistas. The high-speed internet accepts streaming on all devices including HD Roku TVs in each room. The pocket doors on one side of the home are ideal for separate families or young kids to provide a peaceful space on one side of the home or while you wash a load of clothes.

The bedroom layout is ideal with two bedrooms separated by one bathroom on each side of the home. The two front bedrooms (king and queen) have gorgeous ocean vistas. All bedrooms have ample light, clothing storage, ceiling fans, as well as blinds and curtains for those that enjoy dark sleeping quarters.

Off-season nightly units available with a two-nighttime minimum.

Guests should note that an additional pool heating or cooling fee is required for each day a guest requests these services.

Strategies to get the perfect vacation rental experience:

Cost saving strategies:

  • June, July, and August are the most expensive months along the coast of NC. Booking in Fall or Spring months is our best tip for saving money on your vacation. Rental rates are lower, and you'll find a larger selection of desirable properties. 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? Christmas, Thanksgiving, and New Years Eve are great times to gather with loved ones at the beach.
  • Reserve your vacation rental as early as possible. Rental schedules often become available twelve months in advance (or in September just after Summertime ends). Many groups reserve their Summer vacation rentals during Winter holiday get-togethers. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may qualify for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective vacation rental company or host whether your group qualifies for a reduced rate.
  • Management companies and individual rental owners often offer renters an option to obtain trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which normally costs anywhere between 1% - 5% of the booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any missed days as a result of personal medical-related catastrophes or weather, as well as evacuation costs, such as an unexpected hotel stay or additional gasoline expenses. Trip insurance might be a a bank account-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask the property owner for additional information.
  • Look for your local Wilmington, NC visitors guide magazine when you arrive at the rental property. If your rental doesn't have one, you can find them at local shops and visitor centers. In addition to great information, visitor guide magazines contain discounts for local restaurants, attractions, and tours.

Choosing the perfect vacation home in Oak Island:

  • First, have your group commit to the best dates and a maximum budget.
  • Note the number beds and the bed configuration you need. The Turtle Shell: Home Across from Ocean Crest Pier and Restaurant has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our Wilmington, NC vacation rental search.
  • Precise details about bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is generally available online. If they are not listed, email or call the property manager before reserving your rental. Note that most properties list maximum guest capacity, which frequently includes sofa beds in living rooms. You will need to determine what bed configuration is best for your family.
  • If there's a particular Wilmington, NC beach you simply love, search for rentals that are either nearby, or those that cater especially to your needs.
  • Proper accessibility can make or break a vacation for persons with disabilities. .
  • Some rentals allow pets, and some don't. Acceptable types of pet, weight and breeds may be restricted, and added fees may apply. Ask the property manager about pet restrictions before booking.

Some things to know before you go:

  • Take a copy of the owner's phone number and check in/check out procedures for your rental home. Put the manager's information in your smartphone and wallet.
  • At Check-in, document any issues with the rental property and immediately alert the owner. Keep records of all correspondence in case a dispute arises.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a hot tub, television set or appliance. Contact your property manager. They are there to help! A brief text message prevents quite a few difficulties.
  • Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like obnoxious vacationers bothering your home life. Employ the golden rule for common sense. If they like you, locals might even recommend great beaches and attractions you would've not otherwise known about!
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local resident! Residents can usually help you find exactly what you're looking for. Who better to ask where to find the fresh catch of the day, have a great night out, or the best spots for fishing?
  • Lock your rental home while you're away. Protect your property!
  • Don't leave anything behind! Just before you drive away, walk through the property to make sure you've collected everything. Remember to check dressers, closets, and bathrooms for hidden treasure. Clean out the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Document the condition of the property at check-out. We recommend taking a video during your final walk-through.
  • Did your family have a wonderful stay? Most rental managers make it easy for vacationers to provide reviews. If your property and/or property manager was fantastic, they would love to hear it. If anything was out of order 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 review.
