About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

This Ocean Isle Beach vacation rental home with 5 bedrooms, 4 complete baths, large complete kitchen, large vaulted ceiling living room, with a private pool and an amazing 270 degree view of the inland Ocean Isle Beach waterway area at the end of Driftwood St. This vacation rental home is located between Myrtle Beach, SC, and Wilmington, NC, and was built by the present owner in 1989 and had a $200,000 virtually total renovation 5 years ago.

Ocean Isle Beach activities:

Museum of Coastal Carolina — located at Ocean Isle. Great for the kids. Standing exhibits on the beach tides, local animals and fish. Watch for special speakers and events that the museum hosts throughout the year.

Ingram Planetarium — this is a state of the art facility located on the mainland in Sunset Beach. It includes a theater for rotating shows about the sky and a science and education center, and a gift shop. Click on their link for show schedules.

Silver Coast Winery — this vineyard and winery is located on 40 acres about 15 minutes from Sunset Beach. Go on tours to learn how the wine is made; see art by local artists, and more. Click through for their schedule of upcoming events.


There are several restaurants located just a short drive from our island.

Calabash -- home of 'Calabash-style seafood' -- is about a ten minute drive from Sunset Beach and offers a number of additional restaurants. The theme restaurants of Myrtle Beach are also a big hit with our vacation renters.

Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville (Myrtle Beach, SC - Broadway at the Beach)

Take a trip through the tropics and enjoy great food and music! Jimmy Buffett's signature restaurant has been opened since 2004, and still remains a popular 'destination' in Myrtle Beach.

Day trip ideas:

Wilmington is about an hour drive from Ocean Isle Beach. It has plenty of downtown shops to visit, several museums and the Battleship NC to tour, and many restaurants.

Myrtle Beach is about 30 minutes from Ocean Isle Beach. Plenty of factory outlets for the shoppers, and theme shows and restaurants for nightlife. A great family attraction is Ripley's Aquarium located at Broadway at the Beach on Bypass 17.

Great Stay In A Great House

  • 5 of 5

As a vacation homeowner, using vrbo, it was refreshing to rent from an owner who took as much interest in my stay as I would with a renter. Best views and most unique home on the island. Highly recommend.

The Best Ever

  • 5 of 5

I can not tell you how much I love this place. The kids and grandkids all agree this is where we want to stay every year now. The owner is super nice and very easy to work with. Not sure what we loved the most; the pool, the fishing or just the house itself.

Beach Week

  • 5 of 5

Great house with great views. On a peninsula without neighbors near you. Have stayed in this house at least 10 times over the years. Plus having the pool is a delight especially to children.
