Catchlight Cottage was the ideal place for our family this weekend. We had my 92 year old Mom with us. She has a hard time with stairs. There are only four steps up to the house and a downstairs master bedroom and bath that was perfect for her needs. So many of the homes on the island are built up high, and have full flight of stairs to get to first level. The cottage allows small dogs. The fenced yard was so great for our dog, and the cottage provides dog waste bags in front and back yards. Catchlight has a fully equipped kitchen with so many little extras you may not think to bring. The house is spotlessly clean and fresh. It is so beautifully decorated and charming. A short walk to the beach. I can HIGHLY recommend as the perfect place to stay on Oak Islsnd. We will be coming back!

This home is lovely, and all the amenities provided were wonderful. Gray really thinks of everything to make your vacation easy. The art is beautiful. The place is above and beyond other rentals we have visited on the island. We especially enjoyed the porch, grill, and fenced in back yard. The bicycles were extra fun - I had not ridden a bike in years. It was clean, family friendly, and in a great location. We would love to return.

We had a wonderful stay. The property looks exactly like the photos. It was very clean, had everything you needed and the beds were very comfortable. We loved the fenced in backyard for the dog. The outside shower was great. You can walk to beach and restaurants / south port so close. Owners were wonderful to work with.

Hello! I am the Mom of two adult girls and the wife of my best friend. We have a new member of the family. Her name is Chela and she is a big crazy boxer mix. I do editorial and architectural photography. Also enjoy snapping a nice piece of art photography to share in local galleries. My husband and I boat quite a bit and absolutely love to travel. We have done a good deal - visiting Europe, the Caribbean and always enjoying the good ole USA. We look forward to sharing memories of our travels on the walls of our bright and airy home, Catchlight Cottage, with you!!
