  •  I didn't know he rented out the place. (7+ / 0-)

    how many rooms? I know the rental fee is staggering, they always are. But maybe you could kosmail some info.
    The house we always rent in Oak Island is about to fall into the ocean, only one dune wrecking hurricane away from it, and I would love to drag all my family members the 30 miles or so back up to Topsail.

    •  Two bedrooms and a loft (5+ / 0-)

      and two sleeper sofas.  It's a duplex (someone else owns the other side), so for larger groups, both sides can be rented if they are both open that week.  The realty place arranges for that.  It's a fairly small place but nice and the location is really ideal, on the ocean at the southern tip of the island.  It's one of the last homes at the end of the island, and the island has grown so much over the years as the sand just keeps depositing there, dunes grew -- so it has turned into an uninhabited wildlife preserve, basically, south of the last houses.  

      It's a side by side duplex, and the rental agency arranged it so that you can rent both sides of it, which would mean that you could fit 12.  The owners next door are very nice.  I haven't been inside but I know they have been updating things and making it nicer over the past two years.  

      The master bedroom is big, has a king-size bed and a sleeper sofa, master bath. The second bedroom is a decent size, hall bath. It has two twin beds but we bought the foam thing and alternate king-size bedding that allows you to push them together to make another king-sized bed if that's preferable.  The loft is tiny and has a single bed/futon in it. Downstairs the sofa converts to a double bed that can be used in a pinch.  The downstairs is just one open area. Living room, dining area and kitchen.  And the deck is pretty big, partially covered. It's easy to manage.  Four people could stay very comfortably.  The limit is 6 if just renting the one side of the duplex.

      If you are considering it for your annual family vacation, let us know.  There are probably some weeks where both sides of the duplex are open. The sitting area in KBO's place is pretty big.  Two sofas and three chairs.  There is a doorway on the deck that can be left open so that you can get from one side to the other if both sides are rented, but no connecting doors inside.  I can send you the link to the house on the realtor site that manages the rentals, but let me also ask KBO if that's the way he'd want to handle it. Since he is 500 miles away from it, they handle everything, including the cleaning between rentals, etc.
