About the Property
5 Bedrooms, 5 Full Baths, Private Dock, Close Beach Access, (Sleeps 18)
BRING YOUR KAYAKS, BOATS, FLOATS AND PADDLEBOARDS!
Imagine having the best of both worlds:A BLOCK AND HALF TO THE BEACH ACCESS and a beautiful canal for boating, fishing, crabbing and swimming!
Enjoy a great family vacation in this colorfully decorated five bedroom home, situated at the end of one of the few “natural” canals with direct access to the Intercoastal Waterway. Large back yard not typical of beach houses, and your own private dock. FISHING and CRABBING from the dock are perfect family activities! The canal is always navigable and allows easy access to the waterway for boaters. Kayaks and paddleboards are welcome!
So CONVENIENT, just three blocks to museum, shops, arcade, Putt-Putt, ice cream shop, pier and restaurants. Best of all, NO GOLF CART needed to have access to all that Ocean Isle offers!! We have a beach cart available to tote your belongings to and from the beach.
Five comfortable bedrooms with private baths. Cable TV with DVR/VCR in all bedrooms. Two master bedrooms each with queen bed, and one equipped with a large reading chair that opens into a single bed. Two bedrooms with queen and double beds, and a colorful kids’ suite with trapeze beds, single over double. For overflow there is a queen sofa bed in living room, and a 'reading chair' in the upstairs nook that converts to a single bed.
Two large decks, an upper for sunning, and an equally large, covered lower deck with screened porch at one end. Also, the house is equipped with a full size, front load washer and dryer.
Large, open living room with high ceiling, comfortable seating with a new 60 inch smart TV over tiled fireplace. Large custom dining table seats twelve plus additional seating for eight and a screened porch off dining area. We have a large, open kitchen with stainless appliances that is well equipped with loads of pots/pans/dinnerware for a large crowd. We also keep the kitchen stocked with essential spices and dry goods to save our renters from buying the essentials. We do ask that if an item is used up, that the renters replenish what they use.
Ground level covered parking for six cars and spacious driveway. Large lockable storage room on ground floor and large ground level entry foyer with additional space for personal items. Gas grill available with propane provided.
A spacious, bright, and comfortable home with great views of the Intercoastal Waterway, and gorgeous summer sunsets. A perfect vantage point to watch the world go by...and if you are vacationing over the 4th of July or Thanksgiving, the best spot to view the annual parades.
With wide, white sand beach, Ocean Isle Beach is located just forty miles from Wilmington and Myrtle Beach, just twenty miles from historic Southport. So much to do. Take the kids for a ferry ride from Southport across the Cape Fear to see the aquarium, fort, and other attractions that abound in and around Wilmington. Loads of golf courses and deep sea fishing charters are plentiful. It is hard to imagine a more fun filled family beach vacation than what you can experience in this beautiful canal home on Ocean Isle.

About the owner: We are beach lovers who truly appreciate the natural beauty of the North Carolina coast. Our family of five relishes our time at the coast and we welcome the opportunity to share our beach home with you. Jimbo is ready and willing to offer fishing advice as he knows the waters well and has spent many hours supplying our freezer with fish!
Why the Owner Chose Ocean Isle Beach, NC, USA:
We love the location! Everything is within walking distance and the views from the upper deck are amazing as the sun sets on another glorious day at the beach. Being on the canal allows for fishing from the dock, or if you bring your boat, you have ready access to the inter-coastal waterway. The name of our beach house, Fishful Thinking, says it all!!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Beautiful views of sunrises and sunsets, easy access to all the fun OIB offers, no golf cart needed, canal and dock for fishing and crabbing, and the beach is 100 yards away. Could not ask for a better location.
