Relax with your whole family (6 guest maximum/5 adults maximum)– dogs included – at this cozy cottage located on the “quiet side” of Oak Island, NC! Down Time has new appliances, a fully stocked kitchen, washer/dryer, and Smart TVs in the living room and bedrooms include Netflix, Hulu, Prime and HBO Max. The bedrooms are newly furnished, and our spacious sunroom is perfect for reading or enjoying the view. A fenced backyard includes an outdoor shower (shut down December through February), patio, outdoor dining, and fire pit. Only a few steps to enter the home - no elevators! 

DOWN TIME was made to be comfortable for both you and dogs! Every bedroom and the living room include Smart TVs with blazing fast fiber optic internet and include Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO Max, and Hulu (including live programing for news and sports). All of the furniture in the home is new and ready for you and your dogs to enjoy. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, cooking utensils, gas range, microwave, pots, pans, coffee pot, crockpots, toaster, air-fryer, and much more. Your family and friends can enjoy meals at the kitchen island, the dining room table or even on the six-seat table in the backyard.

Our backyard is fenced and private and includes an enclosed private outdoor shower with hot water, which is great for when you return from a trip to the beach. Your dogs will enjoy a mostly grassy area and the seating on the patio includes Adirondack chairs, dining table for 6, and a lounger to enjoy around the firepit or while cooking on the park-style charcoal grill. Additional ‘paw wash’ stations (water hoses) are also available to wash off before entering the home from the beach. We try to keep a variety of beach items (chairs, toys, etc.) in our storage bin in the backyard for your use but we do not guarantee these items will be available during your visit.

Linens are included for your visit. We include two Queen sheet sets, one Full set, one Twin set, six towel sets and a dish towel set. Our laundry area features full-size washer and dryers so that you can keep things fresh during your stay and leave with clean laundry!

As an additional convenience, we have installed an Electric Vehicle (220 Amp 50 volt) and golf cart charging station at  the main entrance.

You’ll find lots of games, puzzles, books, cornhole and Bocce ball set to keep you and your family entertained.

The entire home is floored with luxury vinyl plank to help prevent difficult mess clean-ups, and pet amenities like dog beds for inside and outside are available. Dog crates (one large, two small) are in the home for your use if you wish and located under the second guest room bed. We welcome two dogs without weight or breed restrictions without charge and additional dogs may only be added for a fee and host approval.

DOWN TIME regularly welcomes dogs. If you or another guest is allergic to dogs, you may wish to find another vacation option. We only accept two dogs without charge. If you need to bring additional dogs, please contact us for information about additional fees/approval. Bringing more than two dogs without owner acknowledgement can lead to immediate eviction, or an additional fee of $300 per dog charged to reservation payment method. Cats are explicitly not permitted under any circumstance due to owner allergies.

PLEASE NOTE: Although many online vacation rental companies (VRBO) permit a limit on adults, many listings DO NOT state that limit. Down Time has a limit of 5 adults, but a total of six guests.

Please Read All House Rules - Violation of house rules will result in immediate eviction.

Security Cameras are located on the exterior of the home at all entrances. Tampering with the security cameras will result immediate eviction. The cameras are for your protection and ours.

Please note: Lawn maintenance is scheduled for near or around the 1st and 15th of every month but may be before or after those dates depending on the weather. Our lawn service will not be at Down Time before 10 am, and should only be at the property for approximately one hour.

Six guests maximum. 5 Adults maximum.

Travel Coverage and Vacation Protection is highly recommended. We do not provide any refund for unforeseen or unfortunate events or any cancellations within 7 days under any circumstance, including but not limited to storms, hurricanes, evacuations, epidemics, or hospitalizations. Some credit card companies provide travel protection as a benefit. Check your benefits. Consider purchasing additional, appropriate coverage. Please read your selected policy carefully to ensure it meets your personal needs and requirements.
