We have been to the condo multiple times and will plan a future visit. We love this place! We always bring out boat and keep it at the marina.

Weekend at The Inn at South Harbor

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at The Inn at South Harbor the last weekend in July. We had many family members staying at Carolina Beach and Wilmington but our desire to be out of the hustle and bustle of these 2 places when we wanted was fulfilled at The Inn at South Harbor. Our family members were a short ferry ride away and at night we retreated to a quiet glass of wine on the deck overlooking the marina. It was heavenly! The condo was beautiful and immaculate. Both the owner and Jennifer were exceptional to deal with. We left an item behind and they went well above and beyond expectations in securing our property and making sure it was returned to us. God willing, we will return here for future stays and celebrations. We can't thank Jim and Jennifer enough.

Oak Island Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Having never been to the North Carolina beaches before since retirement (we live in Southern Pines, N.C.), my wife and I decided to spend a few days in the Oak Island / Southport area for a little getaway. I went on HomeAway and found this gem of a condo at The Inn at South Harbor. It's no surprise that it routinely gets rave reviews as it was a perfect spot for us to enjoy. The place is spotless...has all the amenities you need...and has a postcard like view of the marina. Each night we ended the perfect day with a bottle of wine on the deck watching the sunset and, much to our delight, a full moon that lit up the marina and waterway. Our mornings were just as enjoyable with coffee and breakfast on the deck watching the marina come to life. The icing on the cake was the Italian restaurant (we went twice...and ask for Marquis if you go) located within The Inn at South Harbor itself. We're already in the planning process for another getaway in the Fall and, when our wanderlust strikes, this will be our "go to" place. Thanks Jim!

Beautiful Views and Fresh Salt Air

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience. Clean, safe, comfortable, and centrally located to all the fun around Oak Island and Southport. The perfect place for two and worked nicely for our 4 person family (2 boys under 12). A “super cute” vacation home. The bed was comfortable and the sleeper sofa worked for the boys. The owners worked hard to make sure we were comfortable and were very knowledgable about the area. The views of the ICW and the little marina were a great way to start and end our days. The marina is very quite, and with two restaurants it was not only beautiful but convenient.. Oak Island public access beach is a 10 min drive away. The best restaurants and shopping in Southport are maybe a 10 - 15 min drive at most. Groceries are just 5 mins up the road. The marina, right out your front door, offers boat tours and fishing if interested. Never tried it but there is a nice looking Par 3 course within 5 mins so we will be bring the clubs during our next visit. If you enjoy the relaxing sounds of the water, beauty of the ICW, are a fan of the beautiful NC coastal marinas, and don't mind the short drives to your points of interest this is a great option. We will come back…

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Oak Island Airport at 1 Miles Nearest Ferry : Bald Head Ferry at 5 Miles Nearest Golf : Oak Island Golf Course at 1 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Joseph's Italian Restaurant at 0.01 Miles Nearest Beach : Caswell Beach at 0.5 Miles

Just a short drive to the beach, Oak Island Golf Course, or the coastal village of Southport full of shops and dining. The marina has Joseph's Italian Restaurant and The Dead End Saloon (seafood and sports bar) within walking distance so you really never have to leave unless you want to. If you own a boat you can use the boat ramp right up the street and the South Harbor Marina has slips to rent on a short term basis.
