Lovely and close to the beach!
Lovely and close to the beach!
While looking for a last minute place to stay in order to meet other family members staying at Ocean Isle, I was drawn to this cottage because of the "new carpet", "new bedding" and "close to the beach access" contained in the description and I'm happy to say that was completely accurate! The owners have taken an old style cottage and updated flooring, bathrooms and furnishings and it truly is lovely. As the mother of a 3 and 5 year old, I was looking for something close to the beach that didn't require wagon, stroller or anything else to get us all to the sand and the ocean and it worked out great! The cottage is only about four houses from a public beach access. The public beach access is steps, but the kids had no issue navigating those while the adults carried chairs and beach bags. We only had 6 in our group and it was nice to spread out in a cottage instead of staying in a condo. I would definitely stay here (and hope to) again!

What a great beach house! Newly redone and very cute too. We had everything we needed and more. Love the open floor plan of the kitchen and family room. My kids loved the hammick too. We really liked how close we were to the pier and ice cream shop. The kitchen was stocked to perfection. Only complaint was the weather, wish it had been better. We will return the Keylime Cottage next year!

Our beach weekGuest comment entered by manager
Our beach week
We really liked and enjoyed the cottage, amenities and the furnishings. It felt very much like home and we had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable and with 9 adults, everyone had plenty of room. With the bedroom doors closed, the rooms were quiet despite the activities going on in the community room. We appreciated the ample, covered parking. My husband really enjoyed the hammock and the nearby ice cream parlor. We were a little concerned that our 19 and 24 year old nephews would be bored since there isn't really a ton to do in Ocean Isle, but they signed up at the local gym where they worked out every day, they fished a bit and spent time in the Ocean. They had a wonderful time! The beach was awesome. The local restaurants had good food and reasonable prices. The grocery store was a short drive, making it very convenient. Great R&R. We highly recommend Ocean Isle Beach and Key Lime Cottage and we look forward to a return visit.

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.
