Perfect Getaway Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying at this property, and we're already looking forward to our third! We love everything about this house!

First and foremost, its location is fabulous. While it's not directly on the beach, the view of the canal from the spacious back deck is beautiful. The sunrises and sunsets over the canal are gorgeous, and we saw herons, egrets, and other majestic birds fishing on its banks every day. Furthermore, the beach is literally a two-minute walk away. So this house has the best of all worlds--beautiful views, easy beach access, and a quiet, private, tree-lined location. Plus, it's only a short drive to the "main drag" with all its shops and restaurants.

The house itself is lovely as well. The decor is colorful and cozy, and it has all the amenities one could need. The kitchen is well-equipped; the WiFi works flawlessly, even when streaming video; the upstairs bedrooms are light and comfortable (we didn't use the downstairs suite except to do laundry); the bathrooms are clean and convenient; there are flat-screen TVs with cable in most rooms; and there are a washer and dryer available in the lower unit. All the comforts of home!

There are two other key selling points for us--the house is dog friendly--our two dogs love "their" beach house--and the property owner, Bill, is incredibly kind, responsive, and helpful. If you're looking for a quiet, beautiful island getaway, I can't recommend this property highly enough!

Great accommodations and great location.

  • 4 of 5

Such a convenient location and really cute house. My husband and I and our wiener dogs spent a wonderful week at Pelican House. The year before we rented a home directly on the beach, but honestly, there was too much sand for our short legged dogs. This year we wanted to try a marsh view, so there would be plenty of grass for the dogs to enjoy. The setting was just wonderful. So much nature...we could watch all the birds go fishing in the canal and our dogs got teased by the little dancing crabs that would burrow in the mud along the marsh! We had breakfast on the screened in back porch every morning. The ocean was only 2 short blocks away and you could hear the waves crashing at night while sleeping with the windows/sliders open. The weather was perfect which made everything that much better!

The reason for the 4-star rating, instead of 5...A few things could use slight improvement. The cleaning crew didn't quite clean up tumbleweeds of white fur from a previous 4-legged visitor, but being dog people, it was easy for us to overlook. Honestly, the house was very clean except for the tufts of fur. (A Roomba would be great for that.) The one big concern...which may not be important to many, but it would stop us from renting this place again over Thanksgiving is the condition and lack of variety of the cookware. All of the teflon pans were badly chipped and scratched. That may not seem like a big deal to some people, but we are avid cooks, and being that we had our dogs with us, we didn't eat out much. The pans were really a mess and that was a bit disappointing. Not sure about the longevity left with the microwave, either. So, if cooking wasn't such a big deal to us, then I would've given 5 stars.

The location is also a short easy drive into the charming and friendly town of Southport. The people there are just so warm and friendly. We really enjoyed ourselves during our stay on OKI and our dogs loved their adventures on the beach as well!

Thank you, Bill for being such a gracious host.

The property was great.

  • 4 of 5

The marsh is very scenic and the porches are perfect for dogs. It is close to the beach! I loved the place overall. The only criticism I have is that it needs new mattresses. They were loud, hard and sunk in the middle. Everything else was perfect.

I got a Peaceful, Restful Feeling

Location is terrific. Beautiful furniture and decorating style. Stairs are difficult for older guests. Bring your own towels and hair dryer. Our dog loved the beach.
