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?

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 Southern Coast

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!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The house was in a great location and well-maintained. The east end of the island was more secluded and allowed you to walk further east to the end where boats can enter the Intracoastal Waterway. The entire island was very family-oriented.

The owners were great. One night it poured rain and we stayed in to watch a movie only to discover the DVD/Blue Ray player was broken. After texting the owner, he called within minutes and sent me to the store for a new one. By the time we got home and I had my reimbursement check.

In Love! Cheeseheads in Paradise is a Beautiful Place! views of the Ocean is so relaxing, the calming sounds of the Ocean at night was so Peaceful slept like a baby. We spent most of our time on the beach, loving the warmth of the Sun and of course fell in Love with looking for sea shells we found some Awesome shells. The privacy of the beach was soooo nice we even saw dolphins a few times in the morining. There are some trails that we walked on saw some deer. There is places to eat on the Isle and just over the bridge is a fresh fish house we got fish there a few times was very good! there also is a few big grocery store over the bridge just minutes from the Isle. The local people are Super nice felt like home. We are definitely making this an annual vacation.

Great vacation place!

  • 4 of 5

I stayed in Cheeseheads in Paradise with 9 ladies for a girls weekend. The home was great for us. Very clean and everyone had a comfortable place to sleep (could have even slept a couple more). The living space was a little tight for that many adults, but it totally worked out b/c the front deck was awesome and where we spent most of our time. It had a nice large table and seating for everyone. Not to mention the amazing ocean view and sounds. The beach has washed away in front of the home (the first row of houses are literally standing in the ocean). But you can easily access terrific beach space about a block away with great views and even walk to the intercostal waterway. It's very cool...and tons of shells. The pool was a nice amenity too. We had a good bit of rain on our trip, but did get to hang out in it for a few hours one afternoon and really enjoyed having it. If you are going out for dinner/drinks, you should call the "party bus" to drive you. It could fit all of us and was very reliable and affordable...and lived up to it's name 100%.

Overall, a great spot. I'd definitely return and also recommend for a family trip as well (I think my two kids would love it).

Perfect spot to spend time with family and get away from it all.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Ocean Isle as we have always stayed at the Outer Banks in the past. We fell in love with Ocean Isle from the moment we saw it. A quaint, non-comercial town by the ocean. It seems "newer" and somewhat better maintained than the Outer Banks. Although we ate in almost all of the week, there were plenty of dining opportunities as Ocean Isle is directly between Myrtle Beach and Wilmington, NC, as well as local Ocean Isle dining.

Cheeseheads in Paradise is perfectly located at the end of Ocean Isle. Many days we felt we had the beach to ourselves. Our kids enjoyed having a lot of room to run, build sand castles and kick the soccer ball around. I cannot say enough about the privacy of the location of the house. Even though the property is not "oceanfront", there are clear views of the ocean, and the sounds of the ocean can be heard on the front porch and in the house when the windows are open. We especially enjoyed cooking meals and eating on the front porch with the ocean as our backdrop. The rocking chairs on the front porch are perfectly placed and a great spot to enjoy the evenings watching the ocean with loved ones. The home was nicely kept, with an awesome tv and blue ray player. Kitchen was well equipped (yea for the waffle maker), and spacious for everyone. The pool outside was the icing on the cake that sets this home apart, as most other homes in the area don't have a pool. Restroom by the pool is just genius, especially when traveling with children.

I can't say enough wonderful things about this property. Our kids had what they told us "one of the best weeks of their lives", and as far as we're concerned, that's what it's all about.
