The Wooden Whale is a 3br/2ba getaway located in the peaceful NW area of calming OKI, and has all the amenities you need to find that place of respite. Comfortably accommodating up to six people (including kids), we think you’ll savor your stay at The Wooden Whale!

Looking for a place to work remotely during these strange times? The Wooden Whale is a great spot to connect for work purposes and then disconnect as well.

**We take cleaning & sanitizing our home very seriously. Our expert cleaning crew abides by all industry standards and practices procedures endorsed by the CDC/WHO.**

Savor fast access to one of just two bridges onto the island and beach access points. Two min. drive/10 min. walk to the ocean and an even shorter walk to the Intracoastal Waterway.

The Wooden Whale is our home away from home. We’ve put a lot of time, energy and effort into making it a space that is welcoming, comfortable and well-appointed. The space has been professionally-designed and features an open floor plan with tons of natural light. Unwind under the cooling breezes of ceiling fans (in each room), appreciate a cross-breeze from the full screen front door to the screened in porch off of the kitchen. High-end laminate floor and ceramic tiled floor in wet areas make clean up simple.

The living room features a 55” intelligent TV with access to Netflix & Hulu (bring your login info!). The kitchen is packed full of dishes, cookware, modest appliances and other essentials. We appreciate to prepare and have taken great care to include all the elements needed to create memorable meals. Curious to know if we have a particular item, just ask! There is a separate laundry room and common cleaning supplies available as well.

The Primary bedroom has a King bed, walk-in closet, en-suite bathroom with double vanity & garden tub, dresser, bedside tables, quilt/coverlet, and pillows. The Queen bedroom has a Queen bed, dresser, bedside tables, quilt/coverlet, and pillows. The Twin bedroom has two twin beds, dresser, desk/bedside table, quilts/coverlets, and pillows. Both Guest bedrooms have close access to a hallway bath. Please note that sheet sets (including pillow cases) and bath towels are not included. We are happy to recommend local rental services if you are interested. Our home comfortably accommodates up to six people (including kids).

The screened in back porch is the ideal place to sip your morning coffee, read a book curled up on the couch or in a hammock chair on a rainy day, or enjoy an evening drink with friends and family. Just outside the porch, you’ll find a patio complete with a dining table and chairs for six, and an outdoor shower for rinsing off after a fun day at the beach! Plus, enjoy a hammock for two in the cavernous backyard! Outdoor games including cornhole and jenga are available for use as well. And don't forget the newly-installed in-ground fire pit with accompanying six Adirondack chairs. Great for cooler evenings! A gas grille has been supplied for guest use.

The real star of the island is the beach itself. It's a short distance by bicycle or car with over 60 public beach access points. No matter the time of the year, your time spent at the beach will be memorable. Our absolute favorite place in the world is “The Point” – the westernmost part of the Island where you can enjoy striking sunsets and calm waters.

We appreciate the western part of the island. It's peaceful but offers quick access to everything that makes OKI special. Take a left out of the driveway to reach the Intracoastal waterway - calm waters ideal for fishing. Take a right and arrive at the beach in less than 10 mins. (walking) or 2 (by car/bicycle)! Lots of splendid oaks adorn the island and the beaches, well, they speak for themselves.

The Wooden Whale is located very close to the Swain's Cut Bridge (the "new bridge"), one of two access points to the island. There are two grocery stores on the island (Food Lion and Publix on Oak Island Drive) in addition to Lowe's Foods located just across the Middleton bridge. The island is motor and pedestrian-friendly. Oak Island Drive has sidewalks that run it's length and the neighborhood streets are peaceful and calm.

We have two bicycles, beach chairs & umbrellas for you to use, and an elegant rental service to recommend if additional items are needed. Two lounge chairs are also available, although we ask you refrain from taking them to the beach - they are ideal for sunbathing at the home.

Sadly, no family pets are allowed and smoking is stringently prohibited in the home. Please dispose of any cigarette butts outside appropriately. Evidence of neglect in this area will forfeit your security deposit.

We welcome you to our home and hope you adore the Carolina blue skies as much as we do.

How to find the best Southport vacation property experience:

When to book & When to go:

  • June, July, and August are the most expensive months in Oak Island. Book your rental home 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 book a beach front vacation rental that would otherwise be unavailable or unaffordable during the Summer. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook Winter holidays for a Southport vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday vacation on the coast? Thanksgiving and Christmas are great times to gather with family and friends at your favorite beach.
  • Book your vacation rental as early as possible. Rental schedules often open a year in advance (or in September just after the Summer season ends). Many groups book their Summer vacations during Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Eve gatherings. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may be qualified for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property manager or host whether your family qualifies for a special rate.
  • Booking websites typically offer customers an option to buy trip insurance. Trip insurance, which usually will cost between 1% - 5% of the base reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for days missed as a result of medical-related issues or weather, as well as evacuation charges, such as an unexpected hotel overnight or extra gas expenses. Trip insurance can be a a life-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask the property owner for additional information.
  • Find a copy of your local Southport visitors guide upon arrival. If your rental home doesn't have one, you can find them at local grocery stores, shopping centers, and visitor centers. In addition to great articles, visitor guide magazines contain money saving offers on nearby restaurants, attractions, and tours.

Choosing the best rental home:

  • First and foremost, have your family choose date ranges and a max budget.
  • Decide how many bedrooms and the configuration you need. 2022 Beach Retreat at The Wooden Whale - Fire Pit, Gas Grill & Memories! has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
  • Specific details about bedrooms and bed counts is usually available on booking websites. If you don't see them listed, contact the host before you reserve the rental. Remember that most property listings specify the max. guest capacity, which frequently includes sofa beds.
  • Is your group looking for particular amenities? Most rental search websites include amenity lists and search filters.
  • Suitable accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for guests with disabilities. Confirm all required amenities are included before reserving a rental
  • If your group is traveling with pets, you must reserve a pet-friendly rental. Get specifics on breed, weight, and type requirements. Often, property owners charge additional pet fees.

Additional considerations:

  • Take a copy of the owner's contact number and arrival/departure procedures for your .
  • Record any damages to the rental at check in, and immediately send them to the owner. We specifically recommend e-mails and text messages, as they usually contain time stamps that can be valuable if there is a dispute.
  • Ask questions. You may want instructions for a hot tub, television set or WIFI setup. Contact your owner. They are there to help! A brief telephone call prevents a lot of problems.
  • Don't forget to respect your neighbors. Often times, adjacent homes are filled by permanent residents. Respecting late-night noise limits and parking regulations can make a stay significantly more pleasurable.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local resident! Locals can frequently help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to launch your kayaks, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for shopping?
  • Keep your rental home locked while you are out! Don't let thieves spoil your family vacation.
  • Don't leave anything behind! Just before departing, take a walk through the rental to reconfirm you've collected all of your things. Make sure to check garages, decks, and cabinets for hidden belongings. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Record a video to document the condition of the property.
  • Did your family have a excellent vacation? Many rental management companies make it easy for customers to provide comments. If your rental and/or property management company was terrific, they will likely appreciate your kind words. If anything was inoperable and they failed to fix it reasonably, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make it a point as part of your feedback.
