About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7) - SIDE BLDG-OCEANFRONT COMPLEX

Enjoy a great condo in an oceanfront complex at beautiful family friendly Ocean Isle Beach. This condo is located in a side unit on the top level on the exclusive west end of the island. You do not cross the street to the beach or pool. There is a walkway to beach directly beside our building and another walkway to the beach beside our oceanfront pool. We have a beautiful view of the inlet and a limited view of the ocean.

This clean well-maintained condo has a master bedroom with king bed, 2nd bedroom has a queen bed and a 3rd bedroom with a Trapeze bed (twin on top, full on bottom) and two full bathrooms. You'll feel right at home in the comfortable den or the fully equipped kitchen. Each year, we make improvements and updates for our guests to enjoy.

We allow our guests to use our storage closet and beach gear (chairs, umbrellas, toys, etc) downstairs at no additional cost.

If you should experience a rare rainy day, you can be entertained with one of 4 TVs or a variety of books, games and movies. We have a new 42' HDTV and Blue Ray DVD in the den. Also, high speed internet is available in the condo.

This complex has a beautiful oceanfront pool, (our complex provides nice pool furniture) private walk-way to the beach and grills for your use. The west-end location provides you with a beautiful, less crowded beach with lots of room to build sand castles, fly a kite or toss a football. Look for some great shells at low tide on this end of the island.

Although you'll enjoy a quiet, relaxing atmosphere at OIB, you may want to take a short drive to experience the nightlife or live performances at Myrtle Beach. You may want to visit Historic Wilmington or Southport. Shoppers will want to check out the many local specialty shops or look for bargains at Tanger Outlet.

This is a golfer's paradise with a dozen premier courses within 10 miles of OIB. Numerous great restaurants, beautiful sunsets and great family memories abound when you vacation at Ocean Isle. Fall and Spring are fabulous times to golf, fish and enjoy long beach walks.

About Elaine Carnes

We have been visiting Ocean Isle Beach for over 20 years. We love the quiet family atmosphere and sharing our condo with friends and family. We purchased the condo in 1999. After our first visit, we were hooked. We try to visit OIB frequently to see that the condo is always well maintained. We strive to continue to upgrade and improve our furnishings. We hope others will get an opportunity to enjoy our condo and OIB as much as we have over the years.

Why Elaine Carnes chose Southern Coast

We love the beach, especially when our grandchildren visit. We also love to golf. Our unit is perfect to invite a few friends to spend the morning on the golf course and the afternoon at the beach. We also love to eat and enjoy the many fine restaurants in the area. Hope you enjoy a great vacation. David and Elaine

Rare view on the island

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to OIB for 36 years. Needless to say, I have stayed in many units there. Typically units located on the west end is by far my favorite "end of town". This unit has something few do for the $$$. You have an amazing view of Tubb's Inlet (Intracostal waterway) as well as an ocean view. Only the houses of OIW have this best of both worlds and yes, you will pay for it! The bar height outside chairs were awesome! Morning coffee and devotional time was perfect there! We found this unit to be very clean, roomy and tastefully appointed. The kitchen was well stocked and I even fired up the crock-pot for fresh clam chowder.

The beach is a short walk which leads past the pool and onto the the soft, sugary sand. I also love that they allow access to the owners closet. HUGE plus! Although we didn't use any of their items it appeared to be stocked and allowed a safe location for our beach gear. We will be back! Thanks again Mike & Elaine!! BTW the realty companies charge a holding deposit which does not get applied. Only holds the unit for you. They also require about 50% due in January. Glad to not be nickeled and dimed!

Rental 263828 Ocean Isle Beach, NC

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place for a long weekend for the girls in our family and found this condo. It looked perfect on line for what we were looking for and it surely lived up to our expectations! Even with storm Julia off the coast, the weather was perfect and we had some of the best sunset views I have seen in a long time. We had a slight issue with locking ourselves out and Elaine could not have been nicer! She made sure we got in and it took no time! We will sure try and get back here next season! Would highly recommend to families or girls weekend.

Great for our family's vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter, and I recently returned from Ocean Isle Beach. This condo was perfect for our needs. The location on the island was perfect (less crowded), we could walk right out to the beach with ease, and we saw AMAZING sunsets over the inlet from the balcony. The condo was very well appointed with items to make our time at OIB more comfortable. I loved the storage room stocked with beach supplies. Our child was in heaven! It was nice to know that we did not have to bring all of those things (like umbrellas, toys,and chairs). Elaine was very easy to work with and was even able to accommodate a last-minute schedule change when we decided to stay an extra day. I would definitely recommend this location to family members and friends. That should say a lot!

Lovely place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this condo over Labor Day weekend. It is beautifully decorated. It was perfect for 2 couples. We had plenty of room. Loved the view of Sunset Beach and the waterway from the porch. It was a short walk to the beach and plenty of room to set up once there. Elaine was wonderful to work with. Quick to respond to emails and checked in before, during and after our stay. I would definitely stay again and highly recommend this condo!
