Find the beach vacation you’ve been dreaming about at Wish Upon a Starfish. Conveniently located less than a seven-min. walk from many dining and entertainment options and only half a mile from the nearest public beach access, this ranch-style home on a double lot provides a peaceful neighborhood vibe for your time spent off the beach. Two dogs up to 60lbs each can savor playing in the sizable fenced-in yard while the family relaxes on the roomy screened-in porch. A enormous driveway provides plenty of parking for cars, trucks or even your boat, and a public boat launch is located just around the corner.

The open-concept living and dining area is brightly lit and welcoming. A comfortable sectional and armchairs located across from the huge flat-screen T.V provide the ideal place to gather together and appreciate a favorite movie, and the huge dining table seating eight stands ready for family dinners or game nights. The adjacent kitchen is entirely outfitted with all the cookware needed to prepare your catch of the day–or more standard fare snared from the close by grocery store.

Directly off the living room, you’ll find the primary bedroom, complete with a king bed, flat screen T.V. and modest desk area for those who may need to bring work with them to the beach. The attached private bath provides a step-in shower stall.

Down the hall from the kitchen is the second bathroom, with a standard tub/shower combo. Two bedrooms are also located in this hallway. The first has an additional king bed and a flat-screen T.V. The second has a queen bed and twin trundle and also has a flat-screen T.V.

The final bedroom is off the dining area and provides an additional queen bed and flat-screen T.V. Directly across from this room is the laundry and utility closet, with a washer and dryer as well as storage space for your beach bags or equipment.

Just outside the side entrance door, you’ll find a roomy screened porch as well as access to the fenced backyard. Parlor in the egg chair or gather around the table for lunch under the shade and protection of the screened porch with a ceiling fan to keep you comfortable. Swim around in the private pool on those warm afternoons. Then gather around the backyard firepit as the evening breeze cools the air and exchange stories as you roast marshmallows.

Thoughtfully furnished, located among oak trees and close to everything Oak Island has to offer, all that’s missing in this happily ever after is you!

Tricks and tips to get the best vacation property experience:

Sticking to your spending budget:

  • Summertime is the most expensive season in Oak Island. Book your Wilmington, NC vacation home in the Spring or Fall to enjoy beautiful weather while saving money and avoiding crowds. Many vacationers use this strategy to reserve larger homes, or to book a beach front rental that would otherwise be unaffordable during the Summer.
  • In the Wilmington, NC area, The earlier you can reserve a vacation rental, the easier your search will be. The best properties are booked early. Reserving your rental home 6-12 months before your travel dates is recommended. Holidays such as Christmas and Thanksgiving are excellent times to plan and book your vacation home.
  • Some property management companies offer promotional rates for active duty military and veterans. Ask your property manager if rate reductions are available for your group.
  • Management companies and individual rental owners typically offer their guests an option to add trip insurance. Trip insurance, which will generally cost between 1% - 5% of the stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any days missed as a result of medical-related emergencies or weather, as well as hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unexpected hotel stay or additional fuel expenses. Trip insurance can be a a bank account-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask the property owner for program terms and fees.
  • Find a copy of your local Wilmington, NC visitors guide magazine upon arrival. If your rental home doesn't have a copy, you can find them at local grocery stores and visitor centers. In addition to great articles, travel guides have deals for nearby tours and attractions.

Filter your rental search:

  • Select a group lead, choose your dates, and select a budget.
  • Decide how many beds and the bed configuration you need. Wish Upon A Starfish: Ranch Home Just a Short Walk from Shops and Dining has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
  • Specific information regarding bedrooms and bed counts is commonly accessible online. If you don't see them listed, email or call the host before you book the home. Remember that most property listings specify the maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds in living rooms. You will need to work out what bed configuration is optimal for your vacation.
  • Does your family require particular amenities? Most rental websites include amenity lists and search filters. Use these filters to your advantage to find the perfect rental home.
  • Suitable accessibility amenities can make or break a vacation for persons with a disability. Confirm all required amenities are available and included before reserving a rental.
  • Traveling with pets? Many vacation homes allow animals, but guidelines and restrictions apply. Allowable pet type, breed, and size are often limited. Remember to ask the property manager before booking, and study your rental agreement! Extra fees or may be applied to your agreement.

Some things to know before you go:

  • Get the owner's phone number and entry/exit procedures for your . Put the host's information in your smartphone and wallet.
  • Record any damages to the rental upon arrival, and immediately send them to the owner. We especially recommend texts and e-mails, as they usually contain time stamps that can be very helpful if a dispute is filed.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a hot tub, elevator or thermostat. Contact your owner. They are there to help! A brief call prevents lots of concerns.
  • Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking regulations can make a stay significantly more pleasurable. You will magnify your chance to make some new local friends, and resident neighbors are an excellent resource to find the best local beaches.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local resident! Residents can usually point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to charter a fishing boat, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for crabbing?
  • Protect the rental owner (and your stuff!) by locking and securing the home when you are gone, just like you would at home.
  • Don't leave anything behind! Just before you drive away, take a walk through the rental to confirm you've collected all belongings. Remember to check dressers, closets, and bathrooms for hidden belongings. Clean out the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Record a video to document the condition of the property.
  • Did your group have a terrific vacation? Many rental home management companies make it easy for guests to provide comments. If your rental and/or property manager was wonderful, they will likely appreciate your kind words. If anything was wrong and they failed to address it within reason, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make a note as part of your feedback.
