About the area

Oak Island is an outer island facing due south, between Bald head Island to the east across the Cape Fear inlet and Holden beach to the west. The beach has been restored, and is very wide and very empty (unpopulated). The slope is gentle, suitable for children. Bottle nose dolphins frequent the area close to the beach and can be seen easily from the beach or the deck of the unit. Caswell Beach is a loggerhead sea turtle sanctuary. Caswell Dunes development backs onto Oak Island Golf Course. Other nearby courses include South Harbor Golf Links, a par 3 course on the mainland (2 miles), St. James Plantation, where there are 81 holes of spectacular golf (7 miles), and Carolina National (12 miles, 27 holes), and for the die-hards, Myrtle Beach, SC is 45 minutes away with more golf courses than can be counted on hands and feet. Southport is the quaint town on the mainland across the bridge - restaurants, shops, deep sea fishing and much more; Fort Fisher Aquarium easily accessed by car ferry across the Cape Fear; Bald Head Island - access for a day trip by ferry from Southport; Wilmington/Wrightsville Beach (30 miles) has waterfront shops, restaurants, beaches, NC Aquarium and the North Carolina Battleship Museum. On Oak Island, there are restaurants, a grocery store, shops, a fishing pier, the Oak Island Lighthouse, and miles of pristine sand beach.

“R&R”

Reviewed 26 Sep 2016

Great place didn't need for anything. Nice beach, great place to relax. A little rainy but not a total wash out.

“Perfection”

Reviewed 13 Jul 2016

I recently returned from my stay at Caswell Dunes in Oak Island with my 4 children/adults and I think it was my favorite family vacation. We enjoyed the beautiful beach and water but took full advantage of the neighboring Southport that was just 12 minutes away.The condo was bright and cheery and had everything you could possibly need if you were to stay in and cook. There was a fantastic golf course behind the condos that my sons played golf on while my daughter and I got our nails done. The pool was so close to the condo that after sun and sea we went to the pool for a bit before we went to dinner. Our unit was close to everything and had a beautiful view. I miss it and look forward to returning!!

Owner's reply: Glad you and your children had a wonderful time at Caswell!

“Beautiful Condo with Amazing View!”

Reviewed 28 Apr 2016

My husband and I stayed at this condo for a week during spring break. The condo is absolutely beautiful and so well kept! The view from the living room, master bedroom and sunroom is just gorgeous! The deck off the sunroom allowed me to sun as the wind was too cool on the beach. I highly recommend this condo and the owner is very nice!

“Cool weather but peaceful vacation”

Reviewed 7 Apr 2016

The condo was very clean which is a top priority for us. The condo had everything you would need. The beach is beautiful and very secluded. Lynn has very good instructions on where to go shopping and eating out. Very short trip to Southport, Wilmington, and Myrtle Beach. Would love to stay here again if we get down that way (maybe when it is warmer though)

Owner's reply: Glad you had a nice vacation. I'll try to order up some warmer temps next time!

“FANTASTIC”

Reviewed 1 Oct 2015

This was a great condo. It had everything you would need. It was very clean and in was in a great location. We have friends who live in Oak Island and they were very impressed with this condo. Can't say enough about the owner. Lynn is a super person and she made sure we had everything we needed. Would highly recommend this condo.

“Absolutely Wonderful!”

Reviewed 22 Jun 2015

We stayed here for our family vacation and had a very blessed week. The location of the condo to the pool and beach access is excellent. The pool is a nice size, very private and very clean. Such a beautiful and private location, we couldn't have asked for anything better. The condo was extremely clean and that made it feel like home. It is also very spacious for a large or extended family. The owner was extremely responsive to questions before our trip and gave us thorough details. They have bikes, beach chairs and kids beach toys available so it was helpful not to have to pack all of those extras. A perfect place for a more private get-a-way and a great safe place to have kids. The best part was the amazing ocean view from the front window and large deck. We spent a ton of time on the deck enjoying the view and laying out in the lounge chairs right outside of the door. Truly a fantastic place to stay and area to visit. Lynn is a wonderful, rare find in an owner! We wouldn't hesitate to return.

Owner's reply: It was a pleasure to meet this wonderful family!

“Fabulous Christmas Vacation”

Reviewed 3 Jan 2015

We arrived after a long delayed flight frazzled and tired; what awaited us was this lovely condo with views of the ocean from the living/dining room, deck, enclosed porch and our bedroom ! It was heavenly;incredibly clean and comfortable. The ocean themed decorations are abundant and tasteful. Having a sweet smelling candle burning soothed the remnants of a long trip. We settled into our week in what felt like home away from home . We had family with us and everyone had plenty of space in this 3 bedroom, 2 bath condo. I never used the large jacuzzi tub in the master bath but know that would have been lovely too. Just steps outside the door is the beach which we walked daily- clean and quiet with lighthouse at one end we also were able to sit out in the beach chairs provided by the condo owners. As northerners we were surprised at the warm temperatures, in the 60's, and ability to sit out on the beach ! Also, everyone was so friendly. Caswell Beach is mostly beach homes and golf courses, and close to Southport where we spent an afternoon shopping in this quaint, Provincetown,Mass. style town. The owner and I emailed back and forth before, during and after our stay ; She was very gracious and clear in what was expected and offered for us to use items which were at the condo- e.g. coffee, and then leave behind non-perishables we bought but did not use. Nice to have a hot cup of coffee that first morning and not worry about trying to run out to a store first thing Overall a fantastic Christmas trip and vacation; I'd love to make it an annual trip !

“Excellent!”

We stayed here the week leading up to Memorial Day, and couldn't have wished for anything better! Our first step into the condo and we knew our week was going to be Amazing! Walk in and see the ocean from the large picture window of the living room and be stunned. Pictures do not do it justice. Although the kitchen is a little outdated it is very well equipped and more than functional. We enjoyed using the blender to make frozen beachside cocktails to really set the mood! Plus, so many condiments and spices are available we were really able to cook like we were home on the nights we wanted to stay in. (also, we've been told that a new fridge was just purchased, so updating is in progress) The beach access from this unit is fantastic. A very short walk and your toes are in the sand. We took a spin on the beach cruiser bikes as well as using the beach chairs and toys that are available to renters. We were able to watch dolphins swimming and jumping from the large deck and actually saw a deer in the back yard! Also, the layout of the condo is great for a couples trip or a couple families. None of the rooms share walls, and there are two full bathrooms. We couldn't have been more pleased with Lynn, the owner, and look forward to visiting again!

Owner's reply: Glad you enjoyed your stay! A new fridge was installed last week. All new sliding doors and window were installed in the sunroom last fall. New deck was installed over the winter. Replacement windows are next on the list, followed by future kitchen reno.

“Family Vacation”

Reviewed 28 Jun 2012

My husband and I just spent a week here with our three teen-age children and had a great time. The beach was beautiful and there was hardly anyone else there. The town was very quaint and everyone we encountered was very friendly. The one pool was so close, you could look over and see it from the front of the condo. The condo was exactly like it is described. Everything you would need to be away from home was provided. The kitchen was fully equipped, plenty of bath towels, bikes to use on the beach, beach chairs, and an umbrella. To be honest, I was a little worried if it would be clean because the previous renters are responsible, but this wasn't a problem at all. When we arrived, Lynn (the owner) was there to meet us and she goes out of her way to ensure that everything is clean and in working order. Since this was our first time in Caswell Beach, we found Lynn's information sheet very helpful. She lists day trips, restaurants, stores, and other things you would find helpful if it's your first time to the area. I would definitely rent this condo again and recommend it to anyone with a family that is looking for a truly relaxing vacation.

Lovely condo., super clean with lots of amenities. Less than a 3 minute walk to what seemed like the most private beach we've ever been to. My family & I had a great time & look forward to coming back in the future.
