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!

Spectacular view, easy access to waterway and beach

  • 5 of 5

Who needs beach front when you have such a nice view of the intercoastal water way? The pictures do not do it justice.

Also, as someone who loves to fish, I loved being able to just step outside to fish. You do have to wait for high tide, but the convenience is worth it.

The owners are also very responsive through text + email.

Will definitely return!

AMAZING

  • 5 of 5

We have officially found our annual summer vacation spot! We had the most amazing time in OIB at this condo. Right on the waterway, and two blocks from the ocean. The view of the sunset from the back porch is TO DIE FOR. We were absolutely amazed and found ourselves eating dinner on the back porch every evening to watch the sunset. Ellen was very attentive and ensured that we had a lovely trip. We will absolutely be returning next summer! Thank you Ellen!

Wonderful!!

Wonderful stay!! Owners were very easy to deal. The condo is very clean and very up to date! I would definitely visit here again. The only down fall is all the steps but the condo is worth the hike up!

Wonderful vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at this condo in OIB and hopefully it won't be our last. The condo is beautifully decorated and the furniture is new. Beds were extremely comfortable. So nice having a pool onsite to use when we wanted to. It was a quick walk to the beach too. The communication btw. Ellen, the owner, and us were exceptional - from before we booked it and had questions to the prompt return of our security deposit.

Kitchen handy - we cooked a lot of our meals in it. Also helpful having the washer/dryer in unit. Sometimes the stackable units don't work that well but this one did. The condo was perfect size for our family of 4. The bedrooms were roomy, especially the room with the full size bed and bunk beds.

It is on top floor which means luggage and bags need to brought up 3 flights of stairs, so it wouldn't be a good fit for someone who has difficulty with steps. That being said, the view from front and especially back deck are fantastic. The sunsets each night were fantastic. We didn't use the decks too much during the day - since it is a top floor unit, the decks are not covered and are in direct sun.

Parking - there are spots under unit. We arrived on Saturday around the same time as the folks renting the 1st and 2nd floor. We all realized that although there is parking for 3 cars under bldg, you can get blocked in if you are the 1st or 2nd car in. Rather than share cell phone numbers to ask others to move cars, etc. 2 of us said we would just park in the grass lot next to the one bldg. We left the family with small kids have access to the under bldg parking. This actually worked out quite well as we ended up keeping our beach chairs and umbrella in the back of our van and would get it on way to beach.

Again, we really loved the rental and I listed the above to be more of a helpful hint to others.

Relaxing and refreshing stay!

  • 5 of 5

The condo had everything that we needed to feel at home. We really liked that the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to have a nice meal in and the washer and dryer was great to have. The view was incredible, we certainly enjoyed having a perfect view of the sunset! Everything in the condo was neat and clean, and having access to a television and Netflix in the bedroom was very nice. I would recommend this condo to anyone, it was a great first experience for us and the owners made it so easy to book, and they were so helpful in answering any questions we had!
