Oak Island Living
Home is where your heart is. Make OKI yours.

People who end up on our beautiful island usually come from one of two groups; those that have vacationed here before (multiple times) and are looking for the perfect, quaint next place to call home, or those who have heard of our paradise and have come down and bought property straight away. Which one are you?

What it's Like to Live in Oak Island

Oak Island, North Carolina, is located on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean in Brunswick County, about 30 miles south of Wilmington. Our seaside town is situated mostly on the barrier island, which also is home to the town of Caswell Beach, and extends onto the mainland. Our town has a population of close to 7,000, but with its miles of beaches, fishing docks, and boating, the population grows to about 40,000 during the summer months.

Oak Island is very popular with families and retirees alike and has an average age of 54, It is a very family-friendly beach community and summer vacation destination. A new four lane bridge was opened in 2011, which makes getting to Oak Island easier, and will promote more development.

What is so Special about living in Oak Island

Oak Island is a small, quiet beach community that is popular with folks who live here year-round or as a second home. It has boat docks, fishing piers, restaurants and shops, and outdoor activities.

Climate and environment

January's average temperature is 50 degrees, with July's average at 88. Oak Island has experienced hurricanes, with the most recent in 2018 with Hurricane Florence where the island fared very well. Because we are in a hurricane area, you can rest assured that Ken Kiser pays special attention to reinforcing joists, beams and foundations for maximum stability.

Things to do

The small town boasts beautiful beaches, fishing, boating, and access to the Intracoastal Waterway. It has many restaurants, ice cream shops, galleries and stores, and also offers parks, and golf courses, and a library. The Ocean Education Center displays exhibits about local marine life and provides programs for children, and the Oak Island Lighthouse offers tours. Southport is nearby with more shops and dining, but Wilmington, about 30 miles away, is a college town and offers more of a cultural scene, with performing arts and many events. In addition, Oak Island and Caswell Beach have more public beach access points than other barrier islands around us. We were also voted as the "Most Dog Friendly" beach in Brunswick County!

We are confident we measure up and we want to earn your family’s trust. This is how Ken Kiser Homes builds. Different.
