Come and appreciate this fabulous dog friendly island home complete with a golf cart for your use.

Turtle’s Nest Cottage pays homage to this community tradition of witnessing the turtle hatchlings make their way to the ocean from their nest. On the 10 miles of the Oak Island beaches, excitement builds from May - October. It’s not just the long- awaited warm water & sand but it’s also turtle nesting season! The Oak Island Sea Turtle Protection Program volunteers are busy protecting the nests through the approximate 50 days until the hatchlings emerge.

Take the supplied Golf Cart the short distance to the beach to simply wind down and relax and savor the vistas of the ocean or look for turtles laying their eggs, see their protected nests or even witness the hatchlings make their most important first journey to the Atlantic waters.

Back home, relax in the shade & cool breeze either under the bungalow or on the upstairs covered front porch. Bring your pooch and let them play in the fenced-in backyard. Rinse off the day’s fun at the beach in the outdoor shower.

As you enter upstairs you are greeted with the serene ambiance knowing you have discovered your beach getaway. Will you play a game or put together a puzzle on the pretty natural wood coffee table? Plenty of comfortable seating for conversation too. An array of movies is available or stream your favorite show on one of the 4 intelligent TV’s.

The open, well-supplied kitchen accepts for dinner at the dining table or discuss the next day’s plans at the bar while dinner is prepared. Just out the back door is your private screened back porch enhanced in the evening by Edison lights where you can survey the backyard’s activities or the fresh catch on the gas grille.

This home sleeps 6 guests in 3 delightfully decorated bedrooms, each of which has a intelligent TV. The primary bedroom offers a king bed & an en-suite bathroom with a tub/shower combination. The 2nd bedroom is furnished with 2 twin beds, while the 3rd bedroom has a queen bed. The adjacent bathroom is also configured with a tub/shower combination. Plenty of plush towels are included in both.

Several areas of the home remind you that you are “Nest Parents”. From Threatened to Critically Endangered status, Sea Turtle conservation is a serious yet fun endeavor in our area. Even if it’s not official nesting season, we want you to seriously have fun making many memories at our Turtle’s Nest.

Wilmington, NC rental property booking tips:

When to book & When to go:

  • June, July, and August are the most expensive months in the Wilmington, NC area. Reserve your rental property in Spring or Fall to enjoy beautiful weather while saving money and avoiding crowded roads, restaurants, and activities. Many vacationers use this method to find larger homes within budget, or to reserve a beach front rental that would otherwise be unaffordable during June, July, and August.
  • In the Wilmington, NC area, The sooner your group can book, the better your selection will be. The best properties are reserved early. Booking your vacation home up to 12 months before your vacation dates is recommended. Holiday gatherings are excellent times to plan and book your rental property.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may be qualified for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property management company or host if your family qualifies for a price reduction.
  • Property managers usually offer renters an option to obtain vacation insurance protection. Trip insurance, which will generally cost anywhere 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 ensuing additional hurricane evacuation charges, such as an unexpected hotel overnight or additional gasoline expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a welcome relief if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your property manager for specifics.
  • Often, management companies supply Wilmington, NC area visitor guide magazines which often include money-saving deals, either offered independently by local companies, or through a relationship between the rental management company and the business itself. You can also find visitors guide and coupon books at local grocery stores, shopping centers, and visitor centers.

Finding the best rental in the Wilmington, NC area:

  • First, have your group agree to date ranges and a max budget.
  • Decide how many bedrooms and the bed configuration you need. Wonderful Dog Friendly home w/ Golf Cart Just Minutes From The Beach!!! - Turtle's Nest has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our Wilmington, NC rentals search.
  • Precise details about bedrooms and bed types is often accessible online. Otherwise, email the property owner before booking the vacation property. Remember that most property listings specify maximum guest capacity, which typically includes pull-out couches and bunk beds.
  • Are you visiting for a specific attraction? Try a map search to find nearby rentals.
  • Appropriate accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for guests that require the use of a wheelchair. .
  • Some properties allow pets, but others do not. Allowable types of pet, size and breeds may be restricted, and additional fees may apply. Ask the host about your furry family members before booking.

Additional considerations:

  • Add the owner's phone number to your smartphone. Take a copy of arrival/departure procedures.
  • At Check-in, make note of any damages to the property and immediately alert the host. Record all correspondence just in case a dispute arises.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a fireplace, A/V setup or coffee maker. Contact your property manager. They are there to help! A brief text message prevents quite a few issues.
  • Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like troublesome vacationers disrupting your home life. Use the golden rule for common sense. Happy residents may even recommend great restaurants and scenic spots you would've never otherwise known about!
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Local residents can typically help. Who better to ask where to find the fresh catch of the day, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for bird watching?
  • Lock your rental while you are out and about. Keep your property safe!
  • On check-out day, complete a final walk-through to make sure you didn't forget any personal items. Remember to check garages, decks, and cabinets for hidden belongings. Clean out the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Please make sure to walk through the rental a final time and scan for damage. We advise walking through with the host whenever you can. If the manager isn't available, remember to take photographs of the rental to record its condition.
  • Did your group have a fantastic time? Most rental websites make it easy for travelers to provide reviews. If your rental property and/or property manager was terrific, they would love to hear it. If anything was wrong and they failed to correct it within reason, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make it a point as part of your feedback.
