About the Property
8 Bedrooms, 6.5 Baths, Sleeps 20 in beds
The main living room has a 70-inch LED Internet-connected Smart TV. In November 2016, we upgraded the 2nd living room to a 65-inch Smart TV. All 8 bedrooms have flat screen HD TVs, several of which are Smart TVs. An elevator serves every floor (not the case in all houses with elevators). The house has wifi through Time Warner's Ultimate 300 Internet with speeds up to 300Mbps so you can stay connected. There are ceiling fans and tile floors throughout, and a fully stocked kitchen with quartz countertops and a double oven.
Wrap-around decks on each level have tables and chairs and offer great views of the ocean and sound. This house is ideal for large family gatherings, multi-family vacations, and church retreats.
What to Bring: A complete linen package is provided for all of our Summer guests. In the off-season, the linen package is available for $350. We do not provide beach towels or other beach gear. However, you can pack a little lighter, as we provide an all-terrain Radio Flyer wagon, Wheeleez Beach Cart, and rolling cooler for transporting kids, beach chairs, and beverages, respectively, to and from the beach.
Amenities: The house has a private pool which can be heated for a surcharge of $40/day or $250/week.
The pool area has reclining lounge chairs for sunbathing, as well as two tables and non-reclining chairs for pool-side dining. We provide a number of pool toys and floats. The outdoor shower features two shower heads each with hot and cold water, as well as Poly-wood decking (no splinters).
In addition to a collection of Blue-ray DVDs, the house has a Netflix account which can be accessed via the Smart TVs.
The large kitchen is well stocked with service for 20. It is equipped with stainless steel appliances, including smooth-top 5-burner stove, double oven, microwave, toaster oven, 2 coffee makers, Keurig, Ninja blender, dishwasher, and refrigerator/freezer with ice maker and filtered water. There are plenty of pots, pans, casserole dishes, mixing bowls, muffin pans, etc. Several guests have commented that this kitchen is better stocked than theirs at home.
The house is also equipped with a stackable washer and dryer, as well as an iron and ironing board. There is a clothes line in the carport for hanging wet beach towels and bathing suits.
Recreation: Of course, the main attraction is the beach and building sand castles and collecting shells. Our house also has its own private pool (can be heated for a surcharge of $40/day or $250/week). On the island, there is a miniature golf course and tennis courts. You can also rent bicycles or charter a fishing trip. The Museum of Coastal Carolina is also located on the island.
Just off the island, you can find go-cart racing and more miniature golf. Silver Coast Winery is only 15 minutes from the island and offers tours and tastings. Myrtle Beach is only 45 minutes away and has everything from water parks to outlet malls to the NASCAR Speedpark. It is also home to the Myrtle Beach Pelicans, the World Champion Chicago Cubs'' Class A minor league baseball team.
We are at the end of a lightly traveled street, so bike riding is a safe activity. Inside, there are toys and board games and a PlayStation 3.
There are many great golf courses within 15 minutes and over 100 in a 40 mile radius of OIB.
Restaurants: There are a number of restaurants on the island, and more on the mainland. We do have a few favorites. For dinner, Roberto's, just off the island, is our favorite. The Bang-Bang Shrimp makes a great appetizer. The fish is always fresh and the pasta dishes are hard to beat. The pizza is so good we often have them prepare 2 that we freeze and bring home. Roberto's also has a full bar.
Calabash, the 'Seafood Capital of the World,' is only 6 miles from OIB. For dinner, we love The Boundary House. Capt. Nance's offers the typical fried fish, shrimp and hush puppies, and the prices are decent.
For breakfast, we like Sarah's in Sunset Beach. Our other favorite is the Purple Onion Cafe in Shallotte which has giant pancakes, blueberry biscuits and fantastic raspberry croissants. If you need a caffeine fix, OIB Surf and Java is just off the island and Jumpin Java is in Shallotte, and both have coffee, baked goods and smoothies. We recently stopped by The Filling Station in Shallotte and got some very good donuts.
Always fun are The Giggling Mackerel with its rooftop Tiki Bar and Sharkey's, both on the island just before the bridge. The Sugar Shack is highly regarded for its Jamaican cuisine, but call ahead because it is usually crowded.

This wonderful house is located at family-friendly Ocean Isle Beach, NC. OIB is at the southern-most part of the North Carolina coast, about 40 minutes south of Wilmington. While OIB is a quiet, family beach, the tourist attractions of Myrtle Beach are just 40 minutes to the south. Our house is located on the desirable west end of the island, where the beach is wider but generally less crowded. Public beach access is about 1/2 block from the house.
Golf: There are over 30 championship courses within a 10 mile radius of Ocean Isle Beach, and another 75 courses located within a 30 mile radius. Top rated courses include Sea Trail, The Pearl Golf Links, Tigers Eye, Marsh Harbour, Thistle Golf Club, Brunswick Plantation, Angels Trace, and Oyster Bay Golf Links.
Sea Trail was named to Golf World magazine's 50 Best list for 2009, a list that includes Pebble Beach, Pinehurst, Innisbrook and Doral. It was also named the Top Golf Resort in the South for 2013.
In Golf Digest's 'Best Places to Play' rankings, The Pearl - East Course received 4 stars and the West Course 4.5 stars.
There are 6 local courses that have recently been on the Golf Digest Top 100 Public Courses list: The Dunes, Tidewater, Grande Dunes, TPC of Myrtle Beach, and two at Barefoot Golf Club (Fazio and Dye courses).
Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: My wife and I, along with our sisters, bought this house in July, 2009. Across 4 families, we have 8 children ranging from 15 years to a 3-yr old -- and the first 7 are all boys! We are avid sports fans, and represent Bruins (Belmont U.), Demon Deacons (Wake Forest), and two breeds of Bulldogs (Georgia and Mississippi State). (Please don't hold any of these affiliations against us!) We live in Athens, GA with the others currently residing in Atlanta and Huntsville, AL. Since July 2009, many family vacations have been spent here making improvements. We have enjoyed Thanksgiving and Christmas with extended family at this house, so we know that it accommodates large groups well. We hope that our guests enjoy it as much as we do. Because we have young children, we have tried to make it as kid-friendly as possible, and to provide several things not found in most rentals: a portable crib, full-sized high chair, safety gate, cabinet locks, pool floats and wagons. Our hope is that these items will allow our guests with young children to pack lighter.
Why the Owner Chose Ocean Isle Beach, NC, USA:
We love this house because of the size. We used to have to spread out across 2 houses, but the 8 bedrooms allow our entire family to all be under the same roof. It is so relaxing to enjoy breakfast on the deck while taking in the fantastic ocean view. And the house is so close to the beach that we were able to sell our golf cart.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Several features set our house apart from most of the others at OIB. First, it is close to the beach and has a great ocean view. The elevator is helpful for bringing in luggage and groceries, and also for the family members who have trouble with stairs. It is one of only a handful of houses on OIB that has a private heated pool. Finally, the house has 8 bedrooms, including 4 king suites.
