The house is fully remodeled from the roof down. The living/dining area includes counter top seating for 3 and a dining table for 6 to 8. The living area includes a sofa, love seat and a swivel chair for comfortable viewing of the 42' TV. The cottage features 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths. Each side of the cottage has 2 Bedrooms and a full bath. Each side has a master bedroom with a queen size bed. The kids bedrooms feature one bedroom with a double and twin bed and the 2nd bedroom with a double and a bunk bed that the kids will fight over.

There is a covered porch with an attached sun deck with plenty of seating on the ocean side. The spacious front deck has a table for 4 for outdoor dining and plenty of seating for viewing the inland waterway, marsh and the meadow where deer can sometimes be seen in the evening. There is an outdoor shower and a storage room for bikes and beach gear.

Enjoy steaks and hamburgers cooked on the outdoor grill and served in the shaded picnic table/breeze way under thehouse.

When you are not, swimming, surfing or shelling on the beach or just sitting enjoying the views you will be able to enjoy any of the many golf courses located within a short drive of Ocean Isle.

The lack of congestion of the East End gives you plenty of room for biking through open areas and down to the Coastal Waterway to enjoy the fishing dock, clamming, crabbing or just watching boats and enjoying the tranquil atmosphere.

We also have another cottage at 392 E 1st St #401631, This house is Ocean Front with 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, covered front and back porches, a connected sun deck nestled in the sand dunes and a picnic table/seating area in the underneath breeze way.

About Christine Moody

We bought our first house on Ocean Isle beach in 1980. We fell in love with the island and built our soon to be retirement home that includes enough room for our children and grand children. Our children all learned to fish, swim, surf, crab, clam, shell and appreciate the beauty of this beach. We got to witness turtles laying eggs and even saw them hatching a few times. Our extended families from the north have all followed us here for a yearly giant family vacation.

It is the one place my entire family loves

Great location to beach and walking path

  • 4 of 5

Great location to the beach access! We loved that the deck was covered and our dog could run around the gated deck. There is also a nice sidewalk near the front of the house. House was fairly clean and rooms were a good size. Some of the appliances are out of date, but its a good, affordable place.

Nice place and great location.

Comfortable and well kept house, and it was a half a block from the beach. There were 10 of us there and we had a great vacation.

Location. Location. Location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th year staying at OIB and our 2nd stay at this home. We feel this is our home away from home. The owners and wonderful! Christine is always very helpful with any questions I have. The beach house is wonderful. Always very clean. The kitchen is stocked with anything you would need to fix for the local catch of the day. Location to the ocean is right out your back yard. This beach home makes the perfect vacation at OIB.

A great place for you and your four-legged friends.

  • 5 of 5

The house was well-stocked and in very good shape for an older cottage. We brought several of our dogs with us for the trip and they loved it. The decks both have secure gates so the dogs could be left outdoors and the back deck is nicely shaded. The house is very close to a public beach access walk. We had a relaxing week and look forward to a return trip.

Pet Friendly Beach Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Our family has been going to the beach on Memorial weekend for 30 years. We have stayed at many beach rentals in the past and this one is near the top of the good ones. Navigating the zero beach access was wonderful. Not having to deal with steps was great. It's just a short walk and you are on the sand. The updated cottage had plenty of room and was very clean. We will surely be back in the future.

North Carolina is home base for me

Everything I wanted

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from my time at this lovely cottage.

The occasion was my 60th birthday and I couldn't have chosen a better way to spend it.

As a recent widow, I was looking for some peace, tranquility and time for reflection by the ocean.

What first attracted me to this particular home was that it was pet friendly. My dogs are my children and it's not a vacation without them. The house is perfect for those who travel with their canine counterparts. The four bedrooms are carpeted, but can be closed off. The living/kitchen/dining area are all tiled and easy to clean. I brought my own throw covers for the furniture, but there are enough in the house to protect the furniture in case your Fidos accidentally jump up on something they shouldn't. There's an outside shower and hose to clean off sandy paws and two upper and one lower deck they can dry out on before coming back into the house.

Being off season, the beach, especially at " the quiet end" was practically deserted. As many previous renters mentioned, this was an added draw for me. In addition to that, the house in not sandwiched in between another row of dwellings, as most here are.

On the ocean side there are houses immediately in front, but on the other there is a view of the marshes and natural area. The deer, as others have mentioned, do come out every night to graze. It was an added pleasure to watch them each evening at sunset.

Again, being off season, most of the restaurants nearby offer limited service. Not a problem for me, since my family and I prefer to cook at home. There are gourmet and grocery stores close by and the kitchen is more than amply equipped. There is an outside grill as well, should you need one. We didn't, but it was a nice option.

A word about the owners. Christine was incredible. This was a last minute booking and she responded to me within hours of my inquiry. In less than two days we had a contract. Thanks also to Steve, who was there to meet and greet and help us get settled.

Unfortunately, I had to cut my time short due to weather and power outages, but I'll be back to this very sweet, peaceful place. That's the best recommendation I can give.
