About the owner: Our family, 3 generations and counting, enjoys being together in this coastal Carolina retreat where the sounds of birds are louder than the sounds of traffic.
Why the Owner Chose Ocean Isle Beach: This island is connected to the mainland by a single bridge and has laws that limit population density which provide greater safety for our younger family members. After having visited, we wanted to be a part of this community which has large green spaces for roaming and playing.
