Five Reasons to Partner with Us

Focus on your vacation rental property

We’ve chosen to focus solely on vacation and extended rentals, so we don’t waste energy on real estate sales. As the only property management company in the Southport/Oak Island area that focuses exclusively on managing vacation and extended rentals, we provide an unmatched breadth of services to both our owners and guests.

Partner with local experts

We have the largest and most experienced vacation rental staff on Oak Island. Our licensed property managers have over 40 years of collective experience in the vacation rental industry. With over 30 full-time staff members, our team of guest services representatives, maintenance technicians, housekeepers, photographers and accountants care for each and every aspect of your vacation rental investment.

Grow with corporate resources and family traditions

Originally founded by Dick and Sherri Marshall and currently run by the next generation of the Marshall family, Oak Island Accommodations is now partnered with TowneBank, a multi-billion dollar publicly traded company. As a local, family-run business with TowneBank’s backing, we leverage our local knowledge with corporate resources to invest in your success.

Leverage vacation industry leaders

By leading the vacation rental industry at the town, county, and national level, we’re right at the table when important decisions are made. This ensures that your best interests are supported. Our managers serve on the board of directors for the Southport-Oak Island Chamber of Commerce, the Brunswick County Tourism Development Authority, North Carolina Vacation Rental Managers Association and internationally with the Vacation Rental Management Association.

Utilize modern technology to improve your property

We continually update and improve our services with new technology. The majority of our properties now have keyless locks (allowing guests to spend less time in the check-in line) and smart thermostats. To remain the leading property management company on Oak Island, we constantly evaluate our services and explore the newest technology in the vacation rental industry.

"Excellent...Since 1998. They are good people and that makes a good company."

Our Core Services


Get earning estimates, recommended rental rates and rental inventory suggestions. When starting out in vacation rentals, there’s nothing better than recommendations from a professional property manager.


Include a departure clean and linens with every rental – services modern travelers demand. The last thing your guests want to do on their final day of vacation is spend a morning sweeping, scrubbing and mopping.

Deliver a lease agreement with a clear payment schedule and code of responsibility for your guests and our company. Our guest services team will regularly follow up with guests to ensure timely payments.


Harness the power of modern guest communication that utilizes live chat, direct phone, email, guest alerts and a travel attendant portal to guide guests throughout the vacation journey. We’re with your guests at every step.


Offer a 24/7 maintenance line for emergency issues. When a hurricane or major weather event threatens our area, we have an action plan in place to inspect properties, record damage and report our findings.
