About Ellen Arabea

We currently reside in Greenville, SC. We have traveled around the country for career reasons, living as far away as Wisconsin at one point, but we always managed to retreat to our family's OIB condo for at least one week every year. We enjoy our OIB condo for family beach weeks, weekend getaways, or quiet off season holidays.

Ellen Arabea purchased this condo in 1987

Why Ellen Arabea chose Ocean Isle Beach

This property has been in our family since 1987 and we treasure it more each year. The condo was originally purchased by my mom, whom my dad affectionately nicknamed Bochie. Bochie loved the beach and wanted her the family to have a place to get together and enjoy life on the ocean. Ocean Isle has grown quite a bit since 1987, offering more activities for families, but never disturbing the natural beauty and serenity of the island. Unchanged through all of our years here are the breathtaking views of the sound and Intercoastal waterway. We love being on the channel side of the island so we can drop our kayaks, or fishing lines, into the channel any time we want.

What makes this condo unique

Our location on the channel provides so many options.... you can fish or catch blue crabs off of the dock, launch a boat from the Dockside Landing boat launch, stroll to the beach or swim in the pool during the heat of the day, and kayak in the sound in the afternoon. What also makes this property unique is the commanding top floor views of the ocean and the sound. Every morning, while you breakfast on the back deck, you are greeted by birds and beautiful morning breezes. The same deck welcomes the sunset in the evening. Paradise!

Wonderful Water View Condo

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just spent late August week in OIB. The unit was perfect: new washer and dryer, fully equipped kitchen, nice bedrooms and baths, plenty of clothes storage space/closets,and beautiful views of Jinks Creek and the ICW from the back deck. THe owner was great to work with and the location was a short walk to the beach and an easy drive to multiple great restaurants. We WILL return!

Nice, fully equipped condo with views of both the inlet and the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ocean Isle Beach and Ellen's condo was a part of the success. The property is clean, up to date and fully equipped with new washer/dryer and dishwasher. The washer/dryer really come in handy when prepping for the next beach/pool day after already spending a full day at the beach/pool.

I keep using the beach/pool description because our family loved to spend time at the beach earlier in the day and then return to the condo complex and relax poolside later in the afternoon. Beach is within easy walking distance.

We did have one challenge with the A/C during our stay. All it took was one text and Ellen was all over it. She ensured that the problem was addressed and the A/C was restored as quickly as possible.

Will definitely consider this property for future vacation planning!

Cozy with great view

  • 4 of 5

We found this condo comfy and very clean. Great sleeping setup and nice bathrooms. Beautiful view though this canal off of waterway in not navigational except maybe by kayak on high tide. The pool at Dockside Landing is amazing and there is only a short walk to the beach. We enjoyed our stay but be prepared for the 3rd floor stair climbing! The owner was extremely nice and easily contacted!

Haven for Rest and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

This was the 3rd time we have stayed in this charming condo, and we had a very restful and relaxing vacation. The new washer and dryer are a fantastic touch -- I actually wanted to do laundry. LOL! Sitting on the deck at sunrise with my cup of coffee and devotional was absolutely sublime. I so enjoyed listening to the birds, feeling the breeze, and watching the colors of the sky and marsh change as the sun rose. One morning I was lucky enough to watch a pair of dolphins swimming up the creek, and on several mornings, a dove alighted on the deck railing or roof within a few feet of me. Ellen is so kind and a joy to rent from. We can't wait to go back!

Our family of four had a great time staying here! We had plenty of space and made great memories!

  • 5 of 5

The condo immediately felt very welcoming and was clean and comfortable for our family of four. It had spectacular views as listed and it was enjoyable to just sit out on the back deck wherever we weren’t doing anything else.
