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.

              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 9 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.
