Owners have added a 'family touch' to a wonderfully located beach home on the exclusive 'West End' of the Island. Panoramic ocean views from each of the 3 decks. Five Ocean view suites, Two 3rd floor master suites with custom 2 wall shower spas. Perfect 'get away' no matter the time of the year. Great golf, and tourist attractions close by!

Nice kitchen with extra ice maker, stainless steel appliances, and granite counter tops. 14x32 pool installed in 2013.

Owners have also decided to rent Friday to Friday for peak season. This allows for the avoidance of the heavy traffic arriving and leaving the Island as the majority of the rentals are Sat. to Sat. You also get a full weekend on arrival and elevates the possibility to get in earlier on arrival day. House cleaners are not nearly as busy on Fridays.

We really enjoyed our stay at Carolina Dreaming

  • 5 of 5

My family & I rented this property during Memorial Day week & had an awesome time. In years past we rented 6 bedroom houses but after adding 2 family members this past year we had to upgrade to 7 bedrooms. This house was beautiful & had a lot of nice features & accommodated all 18 of us very well. The location is very good too with beach access almost right across the street.

Also, the communication with the owner Billie was excellent. Anytime I had a question she would respond promptly.

We would definitely rent this house again.

A group of college friends and I - ten adults total - rented this house for a wonderful weekend. Everything was in working order, the location could not have been better, and the owners were a pleasure to deal with. Absolutely recommended!

Outstanding Experience

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 40 visited OIB for a reunion this past week, and several family units shared 274 West 1st Street. Our experience was outstanding from our initial contact with the owners, who were informative, prompt, honest and welcoming. The entire process leading up to our stay was quick and easy, with good communication and quick responses from the owners on questions and concerns.

The property itself is beautiful. All descriptions and pictures presented here on VRBO proved accurate. Our favorite features of the property were:

1) the decks, which all afforded views of the ocean directly across the street. We sat in the rocking chairs all week, drinking coffee and watching the pelicans in the morning and enjoying the ocean breezes and sound of the waves under moonlight in the evenings.

2) The pool, which was in almost constant use from the time we arrived. It was a welcome break from the warm sand and salt water, and provided those less beach-inclined in the group a place to lay out and enjoy the sun.

3) The large capacity under-counter ice-maker, which saved our thirsty group from having to run out for bags of ice all week.

4) Proximity to the beach. The public access point was literally 150 feet down the street. Unless you are going to get a 1st row can't really beat that.

The only issues we had all week had to do with the technology of the house. The television being hooked up to a audio receiver proved a difficult test for the techies in our group, and we struggled figuring out the exact system for proper use all week (NOT THAT YOU SHOULD BE WATCHING TV AT THE BEACH ANYWAY). Also, there are outdoor speakers on the main floor deck, but we couldn't seem to get them to work in balance with the indoor speakers. In order to get any music outside you could hear, the volume had to be turned up to a point where the indoor speakers were intolerably loud. *DISCLAIMER* the owners worked with us all week to get the technology working, and even had a local cable rep sent out to the house when we had trouble with the wi-fi. The level of customer service they provided cannot be understated.

Many in our group stated upon departure that this was their favorite beach vacation ever, and a major reason why was 274 west 1st street and its outstanding owners. You will not be disappointed.

What makes this house unique

We have decided to rent Friday to Friday. This allows for a full weekend on the front end and much easier access onto the island to avoid the hectic and long waits with the majority of the rentals being Saturday to Saturday. It will also allow for much easier departure, as when everyone is leaving on Saturday mornings, it can be very frustrating to end a week in paradise waiting in long traffic lines.
