Year Purchased: 2012
About: We love OIB. My Wife grew up in the Carolinas and I grew up in Georgia. We both love the beach. We found OIB about 10 years ago and fell in love with it. The island is set up perfect for families. One access on to island cuts down on traffic. So - we decided to buy a home on the island - and we enjoyed it so much - that we bought a small rental cottage - fixed it up and call it Key Lime Cottage. We put a lot of effort into making the home up to par with what we would expect to rent when on vacation. We expect things to work, we like things clean, we like to feel comfortable when on vacation. This is what Key Lime Cottage is about - comfort and feeling at home.
Why Ocean Isle Beach: This style of this home is perfect for a family or group that wants to be together and be active on the beach and island. The home has a great feel - hard to explain - but its just a really cool house. A great beach cottage. Shotgun style with wood plank floors and light colors give it a fresh, light feel. Close to center of Island - no body can complain about not having anything to do. The beach is literally 80 paces away. You can see the ocean from the front deck. The beach in this part of the island is really nice - good waves, lots of shells, and great for activity on beach with wide firm areas for sports. The home is simple, clean and classic - the most charming cottage on Ocean Isle Beach.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Key Lime Cottage has wood plank floors, wood beam high ceilings that give you the feeling of stepping into a time in your past - of close nit families at the beach living together outside, loving life. This cottage gives that feeling - its a magical, simple cottage that has built many fond beach memories over the years.
