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!

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.

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!

A Fabulous Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week at Ocean Isle, and this house was perfect! Our group consisted of 2 families (total of 7 people), and we had plenty of room. One family slept upstairs (2 bedrooms joined by a bathroom; 2 queen beds in each bathroom), and the other family slept downstairs (1 bedroom with attached bathroom and 1 bedroom with bunks). We all gathered at the dining table for board games at night, and the flat-screen TV in the living room was a hit with the kids. Access to the beach is 2 doors down and a very easy walk. The house is situated on a dead-end road, so there's virtually no traffic, and the beach here is quiet and beautiful. There's one house right in front of Cheeseheads, but there's a vacant lot next to it, so we had an amazing view of the ocean even though we were across the street. The pool is gorgeous and had lots of chairs around it for lounging. The house itself is very well-equipped with everything you could possibly need in the kitchen and a ton of board games, movies, and books available for use. We took our own sheets and towels (beach and bath). Things I should have thought to take: bath mats, hand towels, and soap (hand and bath). Luckily, there's a very nice Publix as well as a Lowe's Foods just a 10-minute drive from the house, so we got everything we needed there. Check-in and check-out was super-smooth, and we would absolutely stay at this house again. Everyone in our party agreed that the house was perfect for a quiet family getaway!

A lovely cottage by the sea!

  • 5 of 5

The three generations of our family spent a wonderful week at Cheeseheads in Paradise. There was ample sleeping space. The house is fully stocked with all the amenities one would need. Ocean views and sounds of the surf certainly felt like being in Paradise. The pool was an added bonus. We enjoyed having it.

The additional bathroom outside near the pool was great.

There is also an outdoor shower and hose for cleaning sand off before entering the pool or house.

The cottage is located in the quiet end of the Island. Beach access is across the street.

The covered porch has seating in the shade as well as a table and chairs.

There are many games and books available for quiet times.

The beach is always my happy place and Cheeseheads in Paradise delivered. The only negative is that the week passed by too quickly!

Great Location and Great House

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay in Ocean Isle Beach. The owners were very responsive to any issues we had. The private pool was great. We also loved the close beach access. We would definitely be happy to stay again. We had nine adults and two young children and there was space for everyone.

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.
