A Cozy and Relaxing Oak Island Cottage - Close to Everything! - ASK ME ABOUT CANCEL FOR ANY REASON TRAVEL INSURANCE!!
1100 Sqft Cottage hosted by Jennifer
6 Guests . 3 Bedrooms . 2 Bathrooms


The Naked Bean is located in the Tranquil Harbor section of Oak Island. A 3 bedroom and 2 bathroom home decorated for maximum comfort. The home is only 5 blocks from one of the best beaches on the east coast and from where you can see the most unforgettable sunsets. A block away in the other direction is the free public boat launch, so bring your boat.

Located on a quiet residential street, it is an easy stroll or bike ride to several restaurants, the Food Lion, Dairy Queen and shopping. Southport is just a short drive away for even more shopping and dining. Take the ferry from Deep Point Marina to Bald Head Island for a drink or dinner at Mojos on the harbor or rent a golf cart and spend the day exploring. If you are more adventurous, take your car on the Fort Fisher ferry to the aquarium or to Carolina Beach and have a drink at the tiki bar on the beach. If nature is more your thing, spend the day kayaking one of Brunswick Counties' serene rivers. Lastly, drive to Wilmington to explore everything it has to offer, including the very cool battleship USS North Carolina.

The welcome information provides all you need to know about easy access public beach parking, places to eat and things to do. If you are interested in renting bikes, kayaks and other beach toys we can help you arrange for them to be delivered to the house. Please just ask.

The home has been tastefully decorated with maximum comfort in mind. It is all one level and perfect for those that may have some mobility issues. It offers three bedrooms and sleeps six people with a king bed, a queen bed, and two twin beds. There is a master bathroom, a shared bathroom for the other two bedrooms, and an outdoor shower to rinse off the salt and sand at the end of a day at the beach. The piece de resistance is the screened porch with its table for six and a hanging bed. Take a nap or even spend the night on the hanging bed. I promise the cool breeze of ocean air and the sounds of the island will lull you into a blissful sleep. The house comes with a fully stocked kitchen and plenty of other creature comforts to make you feel right at home. There is an outdoor grill for all you grill masters. There is high speed WiFi at the house and the TV has access to all the local channels as well as Hulu and Netflix. There is also access to Amazon Prime if you have an account. If you elect to disconnect instead, there are books and games available too.

All linens and towels are included, as are body wash, shampoo, conditioner, kitchen soap, and cleaning supplies. We will provide you with a few rolls of paper towels and toilet paper and trash bags to get you started. We do not provide beach towels or beach chairs so please don’t forget to bring them with you (or I can tell you where to rent them).

The Bean is located 2 hours from Raleigh, 3 ½ hours from Charlotte and an easy 6 ½ hour drive from the DMV. There is no excuse not to visit.

I am an avid traveler and have had the honor to visit many U.S. states and and other countries. I knew that Oak Island was a special place the first time I saw it. I found the Naked Bean on one of my visits. I knew I had to have it the minute I walked in. The feeling was fresh and inviting; I knew I was home. I hope to live there one day soon but in the meantime, I share it with others that have the same love of the island as me, or those who have never been, in the hope they fall in love too.
