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 Southern Coast

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. Bochi 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!

Great Memories

  • 4 of 5

This is a great Condo. It’s on the third floor so the view from the balcony was unreal. There was also a great breeze that was there even on the hot days. Our unit was clean and very nicely decorated. The location was central and only a short walk to the beach. There was also a great pool that wasn’t used by many so it was a great relief from the beach. It was very family friendly. There were a lot of folks that come yearly and were eager to make new friends. There were two piers for fishing and very good fishing for the anglers. All in all I recommend and will come back.

Nicely furnished and comfortable condo

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this well-kept and quiet condo. My husband especially enjoyed the living room furniture that was a comfy style--not the rattan/wicker variety often found in beach rentals. While I did miss the overhead covering on the porch of this top unit, the views were wonderful.

We just got back from our second stay in this wonderful condo. It is perfect for our family -- it's close to the beach access, has truly fantastic views, is cozy and comfortable, has a nice pool, and Ellen is wonderful to deal with! The beds were comfortable, the wifi was fast, and it was quiet. We can't wait to go back!!!

We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is just perfect! Minus all the steps. Third floor and no elevator BUT the sunsets make up for it.

Condo is stocked with all you need. Minus bed linens, towels, paper products and beach stuff. Even has a washer/dryer which is a plus for washing beach towels.

Less than five minute walk to the beach. Easy beach access. We bought our kayaks. Very easy to take off into the inlet from dock, which is steps away from the stairs. Saw a lot of fish and wildlife.

Ocean Isle Beach has become our most favorite beach. Very low key, no craziness that you get from Myrtle Beach or Carolina Beach.
