"Modest Pleasures" on Oak Island, NC

As you approach “Modest Pleasures”, the first thing that will excite you is the full wraparound porch. Enter from the ocean side and imagine yourself sitting at the kitchen table for breakfast, gazing out at the vast Atlantic. This cozy bungalow has an amply outfitted kitchen to prepare meals from breakfast to dinner. On the deck, you can appreciate dinner while feeling the ocean breeze. Two comfortable chairs and a side table are ideal for discussing the day's finds & planning out the next day.

If you’re a fisherman (or visited one of numerous local fresh seafood markets), you will adore to prepare your meal on the charcoal grille downstairs. While you’re waiting for your dinner to finish, hang out on the retro swings, and peek over the dunes at the pelicans as they fly over the ocean searching for their dinner.

Head inside on cooler evenings to work a puzzle, play a board game or a round of poker, watch one of multiple movies supplied in the drawer or stream your favorite show on the intelligent tv. With a simple flick of the switch, cozy up with one of the various books or magazines in the warmth of an instant fireplace.

Both bedrooms have full-size beds and provide the added privacy and convenience of exiting through sliding glass doors onto the wraparound porch. One bedroom has a full view of the ocean and the other features an illuminating blue neon wave that is as alluring as looking at the crashing waves on the other side. Open the doors and breathe in the salt air. Nap listening to the seagulls, waves and the distant gleeful delights of kids building sandcastles. Dream about the day you spent with your toes in the sand sitting in one of the supplied beach chairs. Did you play any of the yard games? Giant Jenga, corn hole and yard-sized Connect Four are located in the utility room downstairs. Wash off the sand & salt using the outdoor shower on the deck walkway before heading in for a snack. Full-sized washer & dryer will get your bathing suits & towels ready for fun the next day.

The beach awaits you at the end of the short walkway & one of the many “Modest Pleasures“ that come with booking this beachfront bungalow is that you don’t have to find parking at a beach access because you have your very own!

What are you waiting for?! Hurry and book your stay now! We are excited to host you and your family's next vacation! Just don't forget to bring your flip flops, and leave your worries behind while you soak in the salty air breeze and impressive Oak Island sun! Get ready to unplug, relax and savor the Modest Pleasures in life!

Tips and Tricks for getting the best Southport vacation rental experience:

How to get the best rental home value:

  • Summertime is the most expensive season in coastal NC. Book your rental home in Fall or Spring to get the benefit of gorgeous weather while saving money and avoiding crowds. Many vacationers use this method to find larger homes within budget, or to reserve a beach front vacation rental that would otherwise be unavailable during June, July, and August. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook Winter holidays for a Southport vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday near the ocean? Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years are great times to gather with friends and family at your favorite beach.
  • In the Southport area, The earlier your group can book a vacation home, the easier your search will be. The most desirable rental homes are booked early. Reserving your rental property six - twelve months before your vacation is recommended. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years Eve are excellent times to search for and reserve your vacation rental.
  • Veterans and Active Duty Military members may qualify for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective host if your family qualifies for a price reduction or discount.
  • Property management companies often offer their guests an option to obtain vacation insurance. Trip insurance, which usually will cost you 1% - 5% of the stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any missed trip time as a result of medical-related catastrophes or weather disasters, as well as evacuation charges, such as an unexpected hotel or extra gasoline expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a welcome relief if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your host for additional information.
  • Many management companies supply Southport area travel guide magazines that include special deals, either offered independently by local companies, or by way of a relationship with the rental management company and the business itself. You can also find Southport area magazine and coupon books at local grocery stores, shopping centers, and visitor centers.

How to choose the best vacation home:

  • Start by choosing your vacation dates and a budget.
  • Note the number bedrooms and the bed configuration your group requires. Private Oceanfront Home! - Ocean View From Anywhere In The Home - Beach Gear - Sleeps 4 has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our Southport rental home search.
  • Specific details about bedrooms and bed counts & types is normally available online. If you don't see them listed, call the property owner before you reserve the vacation home. Remember that most listings specify maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds in living rooms. You'll need to establish what is best for your group.
  • If there's a specific Southport attraction you long to visit, search for properties that are either near by, or those that cater especially to your needs.
  • Proper accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for guests that require the use of a wheelchair. Confirm all required amenities are included before reserving a rental.
  • If your family is bringing pets, you'll need to book a pet-friendly rental. Get information on breed, weight, and type requirements. Often, property managers charge pet deposits and fees.

Additional considerations:

  • We recommend storing the owner's contact information in your smartphone and wallet.
  • To make sure that damages are not linked to your family's stay, inspect for any problem areas when you arrive. text the rental manager immediately to relay any damages. If there is a dispute about legal responsibility later, having the recorded problems and contact attempts will be helpful.
  • Property managers are great sources of help! Don't be shy to ask any questions during your stay.
  • Respect the neighborhood. Often times, nearby homes are occupied by local residents. Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking regulations reduces conflict and allows everyone to enjoy their day.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Local residents can usually help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to spend a rainy day, have a great night out, or the best spots for crabbing?
  • Lock your vacation home while you are away. Protect the owner's property and your stuff!
  • Double-check every room of the vacation property to make sure that you've packed all belongings on check-out day. Make sure to check bathrooms, dressers, and closets for hidden belongings. Clean the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Document the condition of the property at check-out. We recommend taking a video during your final walk-through.
  • Did you have a wonderful time? Most rental websites make it easy for vacationers to provide comments. If your rental and/or host was terrific, they would love to hear about it. 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 review.

Victory Beach Vacations

Victory Beach Vacations

Visitors who are on the hunt for the postcard-perfect vacation rental in the heart of the Carolina Beach or Kure Beach area will find an enticing selection and plenty of friendly customer service when they rent through Victory Beach Vacations. Based in Carolina Beach in the coastal Cape Fear region, Victory Beach Vacations has more than 100 vacation rentals in all shapes and sizes to ensure that every vacationing family can find their dream home away from home on the beach.   When you book your Cape Fear getaway with Victory Beach Vacations, the fun doesn’t end when you leave the beach, it continues with an array of privately-owned properties outfitted with all of the amenities needed for a fabulous beach vacation.   Jenna Lanier, General Manager, explains that her family first opened the rental and property management business in 2002. At the forefront of Victory Beach operations is Lanier’s mother, Caroline Meeks. Meeks is both the Broker in Charge and co-owner with husband, Buck Meeks, who manages the Field Services team with Lanier’s husband, Scott.   For nearly 20 years, the Victory Beach team has worked tirelessly to establish a network of top-of-the-line rental properties for Cape Fear visitors to enjoy. “As far as our properties go,” explains Lanier, “they are all updated, well-furnished and appointed. “We have always performed post-cleaning inspections and since the pandemic, have put freshly laundered duvets over all of the comforters between rentals.”   Lanier emphasizes how important the guests experience is “we strive to give our guests a relaxing, stress free, memorable vacation.” This emphasis on customer service has led to Victory Beach Vacations having a 4.8 Google rating with over 300 reviews by happy owners and guests.In addition to Victory Beach’s superior sanitation practices, the company offers properties for every type of visitor.

Many properties include pools and hot tubs as well, perfect for outdoor entertaining, and many are dog friendly.   Lanier also notes that all properties are within walking or driving distance to Pleasure Island’s main attractions – Carolina Beach and Kure Beach. The former, as described by Lanier, is the more commercialized of the two destinations and features a boardwalk, outdoor dining options and a plethora of weekly activities including fireworks, live music, amusement park pop-ups, and movies under the stars. Kure Beach offers a more residential feel with its fishing pier, intimate restaurants and family favorite, North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher.More water fun awaits, too. “There is a harbor and a canal that feed into the intercoastal. We have several properties on the harbor so guests can bring their boat, kayak, [or jet ski] and travel between islands,” says Lanier.   A stay with Victory Beach Vacations is an annual pilgrimage for most. “A large percentage of guests are previous guests. Some even reserve the same property for the next year as they’re checking out,” Lanier says. “It’s almost like it’s their personal vacation home.”   Even before guests arrive at their vacation destination, the Victory Beach Vacations’ website greets them with a live beach cam and exquisite aerial footage of both Carolina and Kure Beaches.
