Property description

Come to the west end of beautiful Ocean Isle Beach and relax! Sit on our deck overlooking the lagoon filled with turtles basking in the sunshine. Take a short walk to the beach and head to the west end of the island, where you'll find the wide white sandy beaches, where pools form at low tide, perfect for wading, playing, and contemplating life. Stroll back along the sound side, where you'll see the most gorgeous sunsets. Walk to The Isles, the beachfront restaurant for a cocktail or fine dining. This is the relaxing vacation you've been waiting for!

Our beach house is located in Island Park Cottages, a private gated sound-front community on the beautiful west end of Ocean Isle Beach, just a five minute walk to the beach and a few steps from the sound. Island Park Cottages has two swimming pools and two community docks. This neighborhood is very family friendly, and the streets are perfect for biking and strolling.

'Turtle Key' has four bedrooms: the Fontana room, the Palm room, and the Ocean Isle room (each with a queen bed), the Regatta room (two twins), and three baths (one down two up). Our main living area has just been redecorated, with beautiful tones of teal, cream, and sand. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the amenities of home. We have three decks, one front deck, the large back deck with lounge chairs and rocking chairs overlooking the lagoon and with a view of the sound, and the lower deck, a great place to relax in the shade on adirondack chairs, nap in a hammock, or dine at the picnic table. Wash the sand off in our large outdoor shower!

Ocean Isle is a quiet beach for families with one fishing pier and a few restaurants on the island, and with many more close by. The town of Shallotte is 15 minutes away, with restaurants and Coastal Cinemas Ten. We're just a 15 minute drive to Calabash, 45 minutes to Wilmington, 30 minutes to North Myrtle Beach (Barefoot Landing, Tanger Outlets and more), 45 minutes to Myrtle Beach (Broadway at the Beach, the Aquarium) and close to dozens of fine golf courses (ask us to recommend our favorites!).

Larger crowd than one cottage can accommodate? E-mail us, and we'll try to assist in finding another Island Park Cottage close by.

Enjoy your Ocean Isle Beach vacation at 'Turtle Key'!
