Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: I grew up in a small Atlantic Ocean beach community in a house on the river and remember fondly the activities associated with coastal living. My wife lived in California near the coast and also had a fondness for shore life. We found Ocean Isle Beach and knew it was where we wanted to be.
Why the Owner Chose Ocean Isle Beach, NC, USA:
After having a great vacation on Ocean Isle Beach 11 years ago, my wife and I went back every year. In Ocean Isle Beach we found a place to renew ourselves with peaceful beaches and exciting activities. It became a focal point for our retirement planning. We looked at many properties on each visit back and in 2009 our dream came true when we purchased 'The Happy Pelican, our future retirement home. We are happy to share our property with you in hopes you will become as enchanted with OIB island life as we did.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The best features of the Happy Pelican is its proximity to the beach, the private deep water dock for boating and swimming, and the house's spacious floor plan. Large windows in the living area provide waterfront views and the upper bedroom balconies allow for a view of the ocean at the end of the street. Raeford Street, on which the house is located, is a direct beach access street with a short, handicap accessible boardwalk leading over protective sand dunes to a wide section of pristine beach. The house's location on the canal system puts the dock within a 1-2 minute sail to the Inter-coastal Water Way, and 7-10 minutes cruise to the inlet and the Atlantic's open water. The Happy Pelican is perfectly situated for beach, boating, fishing, golfing, flying, and and site seeing, (snow skiing...no). Truly the best all around vacation location you could ask for.
