Large, clean, modern house in great location.

  • 5 of 5

Great home with friendly and helpful owners. We rented this house over a long weekend and had no issues. Large, spacious home. Each bedroom has a full bath in it and an additional half bath downstairs. Only one bed per bedroom, so might not be great if you have lots of kids. Still, this house was actually larger than we needed but it is in a great location and the nightly rate was better than some smaller/older homes in the same area.

Easy payment and deposit transactions completed via PayPal and I received my deposit return promptly afterwards. We were completely satisfied with our stay and would definitely recommend this house to other renters.

We loved the home, it's decor, accommodations, closeness of the beach. We love the Southport and Oak Island area. We look forward to repeating our vacation plans next year.

Wonderful Beach Vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Serenity. The house is spacious. Each bedroom has it's own full bath. My husband and son showered in the outdoor shower- this was a great feature after spending our days on the beach. We had all the comforts of home during our vacation.

Serenity is less than a two minute drive to the beach and close to the grocery store and many restaurants. It is an easy trip into Southport or to the Bald Head Island ferry.

Serenity is on a quiet street with a beautiful view of the waterway. There is adequate parking.

We look forward to vacationing here again next year!

Late summer escape!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 2 college.age children had a wonderful stay at this charming, comfortable home! A lovely, well-kept home ideally situated. We spent most of our time on the peaceful deck overlooking the inlet sound - and of course strolling to the beach! We look forward to returning soon - thank you!!

Very nice house. The location is close to the beach. The marsh setting was beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a great location for riding bikes, and you can also put kayaks in the marsh during high tide. The house is a good size for 6 people and we were very comfortable staying there. The beach is a short drive but is also within walking distance. We would stay in this house again.

Lovely home, quiet area, great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely home and we really enjoyed our stay there. It's on the marsh side of the island, with views of the Intercoastal Waterway. It's an easy drive/walk down to the beach. The house was very clean when we arrived and while we did encounter one issue while we were there, Mark responded immediately and had someone out to the house within the hour to fix it.
