The Hairy Crab
You don't even need to make the beds as all beds are made prior to your arrival! Just relax and have fun!
3 Bedrooms and a pull out twin in the family room (Primary - King with Ensuite; #2 – Queen with desk; #3 – Twin Bunkbed); Fenced-in Backyard; Fire Pit; Grill; Outdoor Shower; Beach Cart with lots of Toys; Yard Games.
Why Hairy Crab? Walk the beach at night & you may see Atlantic Ghost Crabs. They have hairy legs that wick moisture from the sand. Not only is the name fun & memorable but so will be your stay here.
This lovely cottage is only 5 minutes from the beach and is located in the quiet wooded section of Oak Island. Choose from one of 3 bedrooms, all with closets & dressers if you like to unpack. In the primary, there’s a king-sized bed with an ensuite bathroom & smart TV. The 2nd bedroom has a queen-sized bed, smart TV & desk (the spot to work or write postcards about your fun vacation). The 3rd bedroom shares the hall bath. This bedroom is the haven for kids with a set of twin bunkbeds. There is a large array of interactive toys, games, books, & puzzles. Toys range from Legos to the shark chomping race game, Shark Mania! They’ll feel like they are already at the beach with the waves scattered on the walls. Lastly there is a convenient pull out twin bed in the family room.
One thing this house will be remembered for is the beautiful art & the fun door & furniture knobs. Play a game of who can find the Ship’s Wheel & Crabs! You’ll have the keys to Davey Jones’ Locker; now to find the locker… How many Crabs can you find in the décor?
For a surprise, open the cabinet beneath the smart tv in the living area that holds lots of beach reads. The living area has plenty of seating to watch your favorite shows or enjoy recalling the events of the day. The well-stocked open kitchen has 3 seats at the bar for entertaining the cook & enjoying dinner or a snack. The table in the kitchen can seat 2 or be expanded to seat 4. Perhaps you will take advantage of the outdoor table with umbrella for al fresco dining. Get extra flavor for your meal using the gas grill. For those who enjoy a cocktail, find a shaker & a blender with glasses for all.
The utility room just outside the backdoor houses a vast array of beach & yard games. Is your favorite Ladder Toss or Bocce Ball? Like to collect seashells? Find several shell bags for your treasures. Take all of them, the beach umbrella & chairs with you using the beach cart.
There’s even Veteran’s Park a short walk away to enjoy. Whether you fish, use the picnic shelter or just want to swing while watching the boats go by in the Intracoastal Waterway, it’s a spot not to be missed. Bursting with colorful flowers, the butterfly garden is the perfect spot for taking pictures of your memorable day.
When you return from the beach, wash off the salt & sand in the Outdoor Shower with both hot & cold water. The Washer & Dryer are just inside the backdoor for conveniently dropping off swimsuits & towels.
Water, a Breeze & Fire are all earth elements you can take advantage of at this cottage. With 2 benches & a Fire Pit, even in the summer it is perfect for relaxing with an evening glass of your favorite beverage.
Remember, the best days end in sandy toes & salty hair. May you recall shells in your pockets & sand in your shoes when thinking of your vacation time in this cottage. With the fun décor & a name like Hairy Crab, you’re sure to remember this cottage.
