Confucius said, “Keep it simple & focus on what matters. Don’t let yourself be overwhelmed.” If Confucius was from Oak Island, he likely would have said, “Keep it Shrimple. Don’t let yourself be overwhelmed by the busyness of everyday life. Instead, relax on the oceanfront deck. Breathe in the fresh salt air. Listen to the songs of the gulls as the waves break against the shore in accompaniment. Allow yourself to focus on what matters, relaxing & having fun with family & friends at this West Beach cottage.” This isn’t just an Ocean View, it’s Oceanfront! Take romantic walks watching the sunrise & set. You could also sit on the deck looking out at the vast Atlantic with your cup of coffee watching it rise & watch it set with a glass of wine. Not often seen on the East Coast, OKI faces South. That means that you get both the sun rise & set over the water. Bring your camera.

In simplicity lies beauty & sophistication. As you enter this well-appointed home, you enter an open concept kitchen/living/dining area. Newly renovated in 2022, you can appreciate the new flooring, paint, kitchen countertops, living area furniture & decking. The kitchen has all the essentials to make memorable meals. Small appliances include a drip/k-cup coffee maker, tea kettle, 4 slice toaster & for those frozen vacay drinks, a blender. Serve your cheese on the marble board & cook your Low Country Boil in the stockpot. The large kitchen island does double duty. On the kitchen side it provides plenty of prep space & an area for creating a buffet. On the dining side, you’ll find 8 bar stools. Next to it is a dining table that seats 4. There is a large pantry for keeping your ingredients close at hand. The living area has a picture window that allows in streams of natural light & a picturesque view of the ocean. Settle into the comfortable new sofa, love seat or chair & watch your favorite shows on the smart TV. There are a variety of games, puzzles & beach reads to also entertain your group.

This cottage sleeps 10 in 4 coastal inspired bedrooms. The ocean view Primary has a Queen; Bedroom 2, also a Queen; Bedrooms 1 & 2 share a Jack & Jill Bath with a glass door step-in shower. You will love the stunning way the owners chose to create privacy, a stained glass window of a boat cruiser on the water. Bedroom #3 has a King with a small desk perfect for mobile working; Bedroom 4 has 2 Full beds. Bedrooms #2 & 3 share the Hall Bath with a tub/shower combination. All bedrooms feature a smart TV, dresser & closet. Pack lighter & leave room in your suitcase for souvenirs because there is a full-sized Washer & Dryer in the laundry closet. Other amenities include a hair dryer, curling iron & Iron/Ironing Board. This cottage is kid-friendly offering a Pack n’ Play & a child gate.

All iTrip Properties have a Complementary “First Night Essentials” Bag. Unlike many local rental homes, beds will be made with fresh sheets when you arrive. No need to strip the beds at the end of your stay. Also, with iTrip, sheets & towels (kitchen & bath) are provided at no extra cost.

The focal point of this cottage is of course, that it is oceanfront. A large, covered deck spans the width of the home & holds comfortable Adirondack chairs & a table with benches, perfect for alfresco dining. As you head down the walkway, you may choose the Adirondack chairs on the sun deck to take in those uplifting, radiant rays of sunshine. Gaze over the sweeping views of our unspoiled beach. Keep a keen eye out & you may see dolphins playing in the water before you. Just to the left of the dune in front of you is an access to the fun in the sand. In the storage ahead of your parking area, you will find beach chairs, including a tiny Adirondack chair for the smallest guest. Look in the storage locker on the back deck & you will find an assortment of beach toys. As you return from the beach, you can use the open air rinsing shower with foot wash or the enclosed outdoor shower beneath the cottage.

So, remember, as the Oak Island Confucius say, “Keep it Shrimple”.
