Recent Ocean Isle Beach reviews
Simply The Best
"If vacationers are looking for the perfect beach rental go no further than the Crabby Five at 1B Jan Street, Ocean Isle, NC. This four bedroom condo has it all, clean, updated, great kitchen, a minute from the beach and with a porch that affords a beach view. For rainy days when you tire of reading....the flat screen High Definition TVs (in all the bedrooms and the living areas) will give you entertainment---from sports to network, plus DVD players should you want to watch a flick.
Shopping, really good restaurants (we like Fibber McGee's in Sunset, The Boundary House in Calibash and the Sugar Shack in Ocean Isle) are just short drives away and there are plenty of great golf courses to pick and choose from. Looking for a great little bookstore, drop by the Pelican Book Store in Sunset (behind the Food Lion) and ask for Pat. She'll steer you to a good read or two.
Our two-year-old grandson loved the hands-on aquarium/museum which is just a mile or so away in Ocean Isle. But lets don't forget the beach, this is one of the premier beaches in North Carolina and for a two minute walk the pristine beach, sun, shell seeking, and sunsets are yours to enjoy.
Most of these condos are family owned and we not only enjoyed the neighbors (when are paths crossed) we've become friends with several.
Before you go elsewhere give the Crabby 5 at 1B Jan Street, Ocean, Isle, NC a try."

"This was the perfect vacation rental home: spacious, comfortable, beautifully decorated with a fully equipped kitchen (even has a crock pot which we used). There were 9 of us, 5 adults and 4 teenagers and we never felt crowded. The last time we were at Ocean Isle our 2 girls were both teenagers. This time they brought teens of their own. Hopefully we've started a tradition and I can't imagine a better place to continue it than at this villa. As we left and went our different ways, ALL agreed it was the best summer vacation EVER! I highly recommend it."

"This was our third year vacationing in OIB and we love it! The condo was perfect and very comfortable. The view from the deck is awesome and we spent many meals eating out there watching the waves. The walk to the beach is easy -- the public beach access is just across the street. The pool is very close as well. We have a 2 and 4 year old and the walk was no issue for their little legs. Nancy is fast to respond and easy to work with. You can't go wrong staying here -- we'll stay again in the future!"

"We loved it. Lots of room. We loved the fact that every bedroom has it's own bathroom. That was a huge plus. The condo was very clean and up to date. We enjoyed spending lots of time on the deck. Great sunset views from deck. The owners were quick to respond to any questions that we raised, before our stay. We'll definitely be going back and staying there again."
