Property description

The Happy Pelican Beach House - Ocean Isle Beach House on the Canal.

Spring and Summer weeks still available. Well equipped toy/equipment room with Kayak, boats, fishing and crabbing gear, bikes, beach equipment and games.

This property is owner managed and maintained. Since you will be dealing directly with the owner and not a rental management company agent, you can be assured of receiving the very best personal attention (See Reviews).


Family Fun:

The perfect vacation rental property awaits your family and friends. This canal home property is on a direct beach access street. Just a 3 minute walk or 30 second drive and you are on the beach enjoying a fun day in the sun on wide, clean uncrowded beaches. The water is warm May through October and very clean. Swim in the surf, sunbathe, play beach games, build sandcastles, stroll the beach looking for shells, try surf fishing, the fun activities are many.

We have beach chairs, mats, umbrellas, coolers, reusable ice packs, and picnic baskets for lounging on the beach. For beach fun, beach balls, Freebees, and games are available for your use. When you get back from a fun day at the beach, rinse off the sand in the house’s outdoor hot shower.

Kayak or swim in the canal system behind the house. The water is clean and refreshing. There is a swim ladder on the dock for easy access.

Bring your boat or Jet Ski and dock it on the private deep water canal behind the house. For boaters the house has a great nautical location, located one minute from the Inter Coastal Waterway and 10 minutes from open water.

Private pilots bring your plane. Fly into OIB's own airport just a 5 minute drive from the house. Car service is available from the airport.

The Happy Pelican has over 1,980 square feet of tastefully decorated living space. There are two large decks overlooking the canal and 4 bedroom balconies 2 of which have ocean views.

Sleeping Accommodations:

There are 4 large, tastefully decorated, bedrooms spaced far apart for privacy. A loft provides additional sleeping for three.

The bed configuration is:

BR1 -One queen size bed, BR2 -1 Queen and 1 twin bed, BR3 – 1 Queen bed and 1 twin bed, BR4 - 1 Queen and 1 twin bed - Loft with a queen sleeper sofa and 1 twin bed that sleeps 2-3. Flat screen TVs with cable in every room.

There are 2 large bathrooms, one with a double sink. The baths are adjacent to the bedrooms and there is a half bath off the living room area for convenience. An enclosed out door shower and changing room is located on the ground floor.

When you don’t feel like going out for dining, the Happy Pelican’s well equipped kitchen is ready for cooking. A full compliment of cooking equipment is available for your use. There is even a food processor and bread machine.

There is plenty of seating in the large dining area with additional seating at the kitchen breakfast bar and you can't beat outdoor dining on the deck.

For entertaining, there is a large open living room with a bar area and entertainment center. There is a large flat screen TV, Blu-Ray DVD, VCR, stereo system and a collection of movies for all ages. There are games galore for the family to enjoy, even poker chips and cards for a game of Texas Holdem. For the Kids there is 'Pelican’s Roost', a loft area set up for kid fun, far enough away for privacy from adults but within earshot of watchful parents.

On the ground level is a toy room stocked with toys for the beach, Pelican 130T tandem kayak, a two person inflatable boat, rafts, beach chairs, fishing and crabbing gear, 8 bikes, and lots more.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I grew up in a small Atlantic Ocean beach community in a house on the river and remember fondly the activities associated with coastal living. My wife lived in California near the coast and also had a fondness for shore life. We found Ocean Isle Beach and knew it was where we wanted to be.

Why the Owner Chose Ocean Isle Beach:
After having a great vacation on Ocean Isle Beach 10 years ago, my wife and I went back every year. In Ocean Isle Beach we found a place to renew ourselves with peaceful beaches and exciting activities. It became a focal point for our retirement planning. We looked at many properties on each visit back and in 2009 our dream came true when we purchased 'The Happy Pelican, our future retirement home. We are happy to share our property with you in hopes you will become as enchanted with OIB island life as we did.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The best features of the Happy Pelican is its proximity to the beach, the private deep water dock for boating and swimming, and the house's spacious floor plan. Large windows in the living area provide waterfront views and the upper bedroom balconies allow for a view of the ocean at the end of the street. Raeford Street, on which the house is located, is a direct beach access street with a short, handicap accessible boardwalk leading over protective sand dunes to a wide section of pristine beach. The house's location on the canal system puts the dock within a 1-2 minute sail to the Inter-coastal Water Way, and 7-10 minutes cruise to the inlet and the Atlantic's open water. The Happy Pelican is perfectly situated for beach, boating, fishing, golfing, flying, and and site seeing, (snow skiing...no). Truly the best all around vacation location you could ask for.
