Amazing Ocean View

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of six women who play dominoes each week (ages 85 to 72) and we had a wonderful vacation week staying in this oceanfront beach house. The house had everything we needed during our stay, but the best part of all was the porch over looking the ocean and the constant soothing sound of the waves. It was absolutely awesome. It had eight very comfortable rocking chairs and of course this was where we spent most of our time enjoying the beautiful view along with gorgeous sunrises/sunsets. I'm an early riser so I especially enjoyed going out on the porch in the mornings and having my coffee, my quiet time and devotions. A good time was had by all, one we will remember for a long time.

Great views and ocean breezes.

  • 4 of 5

Great views and ocean breezes. Needs a outdoor table and more side tables. The porch is huge, it would have been great to sit out there for a meal or two. Only one little side table in living room...nowhere to set things. The house was minimal, and a bit outdated, but it was clean and spacious. My family and I really enjoyed our stay and would consider this house again. Owner is friendly and quick to respond. Plenty of parking for large vehicles or trailers. Gate on back porch, and good railing, was a plus for my 3 yo. It would have been great to have a hose on the beach access, instead of a just a spicket.

Only cons were my own nit picky things, nothing major!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the suggestions. There is a card table under one of the beds that can be used on the porch. I'll make sure people know about it in the future. There was a hose. Guess it walked away. Thanks again for selecting our home. Lori

Balcony and walkway to the beach so worth it

  • 4 of 5

We spent the majority of our time on the balcony... wonderful views of the waves. Also liked the area underneath the house because we were able to hang our 5 Eno hammocks up in shady spots over the sand and not all under the carport over concrete. Bathrooms are a little small, but with an outdoor shower, who really cares?

Great house on the beach. Lori was wonderful to work with. Very accommodating and responsive.

  • 4 of 5

The house was exactly what we were looking for on the beach and had plenty of rooms with several beds. Found all the beds and sleeping arrangements to be very comfortable. The house was clean, with a functioning kitchen. Lori was always very nice to work with and very helpful. We enjoyed our stay and would visit again in the future.

nice home, loud neighors

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed the home and the beach. Unfortunately, we will not be staying at this home again, due to the group that rented the house next door. The neighbors commented that it was the second year that they rented the house next door during spring break (which is when we go on vacation each year). There was one adult "chaperone" with a large group of high school seniors who drank all day and played music loudly.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback. I wish we were able to know in advance if there would be youth in the neighboring homes or partying groups.

Just minutes to the Ocean Isle Pier and all the fun of Ocean Isle beach. Visitors also enjoy easy access to all the attractions and shows in Myrtle Beach, SC just 40 minutes away. There is a nice winery nearby and a produce market where you can pick your own seasonal fruit and vegetables. The town of Ocean Isle has great concert event and ends the season each year with a big Oyster Festival. Crabbing on the waterway is available too. Bikes, surfboards and kayaks are rented in town. You can also sign up for deep sea fishing excursions. If you are cooking in, you'll enjoy shopping at the new Lowe's Food Store and Holden Brothers Produce.
