We loved our stay at the wooden whale. We had never been to oak island before and is now a new favorite location. It was quiet and not crowded at all, plenty of room to yourself. There are plenty of great food locations with gorgeous views.
The house is a quick drive to the beach. We would run down to the beach at sunset. The house is a dream. Its even better than the pictures. It was comfortable, cozy and spotless. Everything is brand new and clean. I enjoyed having my coffee in the hammock swing on the porch and taking out door showers after a day at the beach. It was easy to relax and feel on vacation.
The owners were extremely accommodating and helpful. They would respond quickly and answered any questions we had. They have thought of everything you could need during your stay and then some! The house was decorated beautifully and has great curb appeal. My husband and I will definitely be back! Next time we will invite friends to join with us because there is plenty of extra space to share. We highly recommend staying here!
My husband and I stayed at the Wooden Whale for a couple of nights during our family vacation. The house was super clean and cozy! You can definitely tell that David and Jeff put a lot of thought and consideration into making their guests feel welcome and comfortable. The house is absolutely beautiful and we especially loved the screened in porch on the back. It was perfect for spending the nights outside reading a book or enjoying a glass of wine. We look forward to booking again in the future!
We visited The Wooden Whale in July of this year with our family and four grandchildren for a family vacation. It is beautiful, comfortable, has every you need in the kitchen as well as linens, beach chairs, umbrellas, etc. We especially enjoyed the front porch and the screened-in porch on the back. We will be booking further vacations at The Wooden Whale!
This is the perfect place to escape the everyday craziness of life. The beds are comfortable and the showers are great. The fully equipped kitchen has everything needed to prepare a great meal. The screened-in porch is a great place for morning coffee or evening refreshments. There is also a patio and an outdoor shower. Access to the uncrowded beach is quick and easy and the point is a perfect place to relax and enjoy beautiful sunsets. Southport is nearby and has several good restaurants and lots of amazing shops.
We can’t wait for our next visit!!
My partner and I stayed at the Wooden Whale for a quick weekend getaway in May and could not have been more impressed. David & Jeff have really thought of everything--the kitchen was fully stocked with all of the essentials (cookware, appliances, etc.), the beds were comfortable and clean, and the outdoor shower was a dream (especially after a long day on the beach). The house itself is beautiful; they really outdid themselves with the decor and every inch of the space feels intentional and efficiently utilized.
We enjoyed using the two provided bicycles to ride to the beach and returned home every night to relax with a bottle of wine on the screened in back porch. We had one stormy night on the island, but there were tons of games, Netflix, and magazines provided to keep us occupied!
We can't wait to return to the Wooden Whale and explore all that Oak Island has to offer!
