HOUSE ON THE BEACH. FACEBOOK - WENDY GAYLE FOR MORE PHOTOS

The Wendy-Gayle is a family owned beach front house that was built in 1972. When you walk in the front door - the house has the WOW factor with its open floor plan! It's a wonderful home and we have had repeat rentals for years and continue to update and improve the house annually. Available year round w/ discount rates after Labor Day. Great golfers retreat as well! Address: 368 EAST 1st ST, East end of island ~ 20 houses past The Winds condominiums.

The open floor plan is ideal for families with children. When you walk in the front door, you are in the tiled dining area and kitchen with eat-at bar. The master bedroom is immediately off the kitchen. From this area, large windows make you feel as if you're on a cruise ship at sea and it's all open so you can see into the living area. Walking down the set of 5 stairs, you are now in the extra large living area complete with a bar and ice maker.

Two bedrooms sit off of this room each containing two double beds. (sleeps a maximum of eight). There is a spiral staircase that leads to the ultimate kids area. (also great for adults because it's very quiet up there and has it's own air conditioning unit). Off the spiral staircase are two bedrooms each containing two single beds. (sleeps a maximum of four).

I can guarantee that once you rent this house, you will be back. It has brought such joy to our family and we continually try to improve on it. The beach is just a walk down the stairs! We would LOVE to have you enjoy our family vacation home. It's sure to bring your lots of happy memories - rain or shine! $4000/week + 6.5% tax 2017 peak season (June - Aug) $475/night off season + tax. FOR LARGE GROUPS - BOOK THE HOUSE ACROSS THE STREET AND MAKE IT A BLOCK PARTY. SEE VRBO #118215

About The Owner

The house was named after myself and the daughter of the couple who we originally built the house with - the Wendy Gayle. I was 2 years old. We laugh saying that if they had named the house after our brothers it wouldn't have survived 40 years of hurricanes!

The Owner purchased this house in 1972

Why The Owner chose Southern Coast

We built this house in 1972 with another family.

What makes this house unique

Very open - wonderful house for kids. What it may be missing in amenities like granite countertops and fancy kitchen, it makes up for in charm, warmth, and large rooms!

Guestbook comments from the manager

My family and I stayed at this house July 2013 and had a perfect beach vacation. The house is steps away from the ocean and is a perfect family beach house. We have vacationed at OBX, Wrightsville Beach, and Myrtle Beach and would put Ocean Isle beach at the top of our list of favorite vacation spots. We are planning a beach vacation next year and will definitely be coming back to Ocean Isle and the Wendy Gayle.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week for our mothers/mother-in-laws 88th birthday. There were 10 of us with and 2 fur babies and we had a wonderful time. The view was great for my mother-in-law, she was not able to go to the beach but enjoyed the view sitting on the sofa. Would recommend and should be even better with a new larger beachside deck.

Awesome vacation home

  • 5 of 5

The house is just like it is listed. Very clean,awesome views,and the beach is just foot steps away . the house is on the east end where you are not crowded on the beach. I would highly recommend this house for a great vacation spot. The owners are very helpful and have great neighbors. Definitely will rent this house again.

Heavenly!

  • 5 of 5

To wake up, walk into the living room, and have the most amazing view of the ocean was wonderful! Sunrise and sunsets are both visible and the colors are incredible. Lots and lots of room; we didn't lack anything. Some days we sat on the deck and just became mesmerized by the ocean. Other days, we couldn't resist the flight of stairs off the deck that ends directly in the sand! It's an amazing house, clearly a lot of love in it. Would highly recommend!
