Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: My wife and family are originally from NC. We have followed my career in the arts and in higher education to California, Wisconsin, Texas, South Carolina as well as North Carolina. We now live in Charlotte, NC but spend time at the beach as much as possible with our two bearded collies. Our two daughters are working professionally in Charlotte- one in accounting and the other is an attorney.

Why the Owner Chose Ocean Isle Beach:
My family has spent many enjoyable vacations at this home. It is so close to everything we enjoy most- sunbathing, golf, shopping at outlet malls, restaurants, entertainment and walking on the beautiful beach. We also enjoy riding bikes or golf carts to explore the island, visit bird island, or fishing.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Stunning sunrises and sunsets. White sandy beaches. Clean water. Very clean beach home. Swimming at the beach or the inter-coastal waterway off the private dock. Abundant and inexpensive golf courses (Cheap if you buy a short term MyGolf, PrimeTime or MB pass.) Outstanding fishing including deep sea, surf and pier (Spot, mackerel, flounder.) Great restaurants offering everything from white dinner cloth to shorts and flip flops. Very convenient to Myrtle Beach, SC and Wilmington NC. Churches in area for all denominations. Island allows licensed golf carts on roads. Rentals available for bikes, boats, jet skis, paddle boats, and Harley-Davidson bikes. New parks, tennis courts and pet park.
