NON-SMOKING 4 Bedrooms. 3 Baths (1 bath by pool accessible from pool area only) Cheeseheads in Paradise is a lovely renovated beach house complete with a Private Pool. It's owners hail from Wisconsin, of course. It is located in a quiet part of the island where you can enjoy the best of the ocean or just go for a walk near the natural marsh bordering the intracoastal waterway. Maybe you would like to walk down the street and try your hand at fishing. Relax or dine on the oversized deck complete with Carolina porch rockers. You may just want to sit back enjoy the panoramic views and sounds of the ocean. You will feel a world away from the stress of your daily life!

This vacation home has a fully equipped kitchen with newer stainless steel appliances. If you choose to dine in, the great room has a full sized dining room table with seats for 12 so all may enjoy a meal together. The main room also includes a fabulous wall hung 42' flat screen television with full cable TV selections and a DVD player. The comfy furniture suits this home perfectly and invites you to relax.

To add some charm as well as beauty, Cheeseheads has four themed bedrooms. The Garden room is decorated in shades of blue and green with wicker furniture. The floral tiffany lamp is reminiscent of a English country garden. Maybe you would prefer the South Pacific room with its wild tropical quilts and mat covered ceiling. It makes you feel like you are in a jungle tree house. The Beach room features a palm tree decor accented by beautiful built in white storage cabinets and furniture. The Retreat room is at the back of the first floor and a great place to quiet the children for the night. Each bedroom has a television and ample storage. Which room will you choose?

When you are not on the beach, lounge around the private pool in your backyard. It measures 14' X 30' X 5'6' deep. With its saline filter system, a dip in the pool will make your skin feel silky smooth. Your vacation at this paradise home will be so enjoyable you will come back every year to make new memories.

About Jeff and Maribeth Achterberg

We are Cheeseheads from Green Bay, Wisconsin. When the last child left the house for college, we escaped the Wisconsin winter season and moved to Ocean Isle Beach. We are blessed have a house here and want to share our good fortune with vacationers who come to the area. Come see us in the South Brunswick Islands!

Jeff and Maribeth Achterberg purchased this house in 2005

Why Jeff and Maribeth Achterberg chose Ocean Isle Beach

Becuase the east side of the island is more residential and less congested. We had a townhouse on the west end of the island but there are many condos on the west end and many more people in the summer time.

What makes this house unique

We bought a house on Ocean Isle Beach because of the unique amenities and sub-tropical climate that the Outerbanks doesn’t afford. The island has a year-round population of about 1500 residents. There is life here after the summer rental season! We joined the Rotary Club and started a non-profit girls home for teen-aged girls. We are in the process of starting the capital building fund drive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The pool was wonderful! It's much nicer than some of the other homes we've rented. Quick walk to the beach and beautiful views. Thanks so much for the memories!

New favorite place to stay at OIB

  • 5 of 5

Great place for those that love the beach. perfect place for family vacation with kids or without. We had a 3 kids and 8 adults and there was plenty of room for all. The pool was a hit with kids. Quite end of the island and great view of ocean and very close beach access to a not very crowded beachWe will definitely stay again. Thanks for sharing your place Cheeseheads.

Cottage like charm on the inside. Great pool.

  • 3 of 5

We had a lovely vacation. The location and ocean view was wonderful. For many years, we stayed on the west end but we liked the quietness of this property. We spent many enjoyable, relaxing hours in the pool. The inside of the cottage was charming, there were many games and books. Very nice washer and dryer

On the con side, the front of the dishwasher got stuck under the countertop so we did not use it. Also the pans were inadequate for cooking for a family. A couple of the mattresses upstairs need replaced as they sloped to the middle.

All in all, the pros certainly overshone the cons and we would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review with the pros outweighing the cons. Certainly telling us about the mattresses for the first time in a public review Is not how I would inform the owner. And when you told us about the dishwasher we sent a maintenance person right away.

Our favorite part of the visit was the direct view of the ocean sitting on the front porch!

Very nice house and pool

  • 4 of 5

The house and pool was wonderful and owners were great to work with. We had a small problem with clothes dryer and even though they were miles away they took care of it quickly and efficient. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is the neighbor was very strange. In fact a fellow we spoke to on beach said he was staying another week and he was pretty sure there was going to be a fight. Glad my Grandkids don't have to see that. However he was very rude. But I would rent again we just always make sure an adult is out with kids.

Beautiful beach views

  • 3 of 5

The access to the beach and the views of the beach were just amazing! The locals and other renters at this far East End house were a wonderful addition to our vacation.

The house itself leaves lots to be desired. If you plan on cooking, plan on packing your own kitchen items. While there are beds for 13, there is not enough room for 13 to sit or eat or move. The bunk bed room is actually the laundry room with a bunk bed snugged in. There are no views of the pool from anywhere in the house or any deck. The bathroom on the main floor is through the other bedroom on the first floor.

Owner's Response: Liz, this house is a traditional Carolina beach cottage with wide expansive deck toward the ocean. That's the orientation. Our kitchen is fully stocked but not with gourmet level items. We use the same pots and pans when we are at the beach and we cook most of our meals.
