We’d love for your happy beach memories to be made here at our cottage by the sea, The Whimsy Whale.
Our island cottage is perfectly placed under a canopy of magnificent live oaks, just steps away from the ocean. Nestled on a quiet beach access street central to all the best attractions, shopping and eateries on Oak Island; close to attractions in Southport too.
It is one of our favorite places to spend time together and we look forward to sharing it with you, your loved ones and friends.

The space
Our classic cottage has been recently updated and cheerfully decorated. With 1212 square feet and an open floor plan, there is plenty of space for you to comfortably relax. Two bedrooms provide enough sleeping arrangements for 4 guests. The master bedroom offers a queen bed, television and private en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom offers two twin beds (one is a trundle with an extra memory foam topper). Two full bathrooms with walk-in showers. Linens are provided (sheets, towels/washcloths) along with shampoo and soap. A full-size washer and dryer is available just off the master bedroom.

If you decide to cook in during your stay, the kitchen has all the essentials you’ll need - refrigerator, oven, microwave, dishwasher, pots/pans, utensils, coffee pot, dishes. A roll of paper towels will be provided, along with dish soap and detergent.

There are two living/entertaining areas in the home, both centrally connected through the galley kitchen. Cable tv, wi-fi along with some games, books and puzzles are available for your enjoyment.

The spacious fully-fenced backyard with hammock and outdoor seating offers the perfect place to relax. A deck off the side of the cottage faces the ocean - an ideal spot to enjoy your morning coffee, enjoy dinner off the grill, or watch the sun set while listening to the relaxing sounds of the nearby ocean. A private, outdoor shower is available. Plenty of off-street parking in our large driveway with room to park a boat or RV.

Guest access
Guests will have access to the entire cottage, outdoor deck, driveway and yard. There is one locked storage closet inside and a storage barn which is not accessible to guests.

Other things to note
If you arrive early, please do not park in or block the driveway. Guests are welcome to check in anytime after 4:00, unless notified otherwise. At 4:00 on the day of check-in, the driveway is open and available for guests to use during their stay.
