Clean and Close to the Beach
5/5 stars
We were looking for a beach vacation away from the crazy traffic such as Destin/Myrtle Beach. Sandy Noses did not disapoint. Practically a brand new beautifully decorated new home with easy access to the beach, literally an easy 150 yard walk. We brought our own beach equipment, but they did have a few chairs and small umbrellas if you needed something. The kitchen was well equipped as we cooked several meals and my boyscout skills were put to use with the charcoal grill. Plenty of options to eat out if that is your thing - we visited several local restaraunts and all were good. The added pool was a surprise and a plus as we made our reservations before this was installed - so we spent several hours just at the house which was great since my daughter & son-in-law had their 5 week old baby. Thank you to the owners for providing a clean, well equiped and safe home for my family and to iTrip for a clean home. We took care of the place as if it was our own and will visit Oak Island again.

We loved our stay
5/5 stars
This home made us sure we want to live in Oak Island!! It’s so unique. It was very windy the whole time we were there, but the wind was blocked by the home so that you’re able to enjoy the under area of the home and pool. The rooms were close together, the open floor plan was perfect and the home had everything we needed. My favorite part was the home having cleaning supplies. Any good renter should treat a home as good or better than their own. I was able to clean as needed and I loved that. Itrip did an amazing job of taking care of anything that came up (very few) and they were so so easy to book with, the check in was amazing and the property manager was better than I’ve experienced our entire 10 years of frequenting Oak Island. We look forward to staying again.
