About the property

Rents Saturday to Saturday during summer, Three night minimum off season

Ocean Isle Beach has a lot going for it; it's the PERFECT beach and the Seawitch is front row! Situated close to golf courses, outlet malls, musical entertainment, great seafood, and some of the most spectacular sunsets this side of the Mississippi! Come spend a long weekend or summer week in our cosy cottage right on the water where you can sit on the front porch and watch the waves roll in.

This Ocean Front Cottage on OIB is located where the island is the least crowded but the pier, puttputt, shops and restaurants are a short walk away.

Property is four doors down from the very popular VBRO wedding venue/rental at 69 W. First Street. If you are coming for a wedding there, this is a great location to stay!

The 'Seawitch', aptly named because that is what my grandmother said she looked like as she came up out of the water from a swim, is a BEAUTIFUL, lovingly cared for OCEAN FRONT PROPERTY at Ocean Isle Beach, NC.

This five bedroom cottage has two bedrooms with one queen-sized bed each, one bedroom with one queen and one double bed, and two bedrooms with two double beds each for a total capacity of 16 plus a baby bed in one of the rooms with two doubles.

Each year we do renovations or improvements. Year before last we bought new mattresses and new bedspreads for two rooms and we renovated a bathroom. Last year we renovated another bathroom and upgraded the living room furniture. This off season we remodeled the kitchen.

Built new with the 'old style' beach cottage in mind, the kitchen, dining area and the living room are in the middle and the bedrooms on the sides of the house. The cottage has three bathrooms upstairs and a outside enclosed shower downstairs.

The real luxury of the house though is the front porch and deck area with its rocking chairs, picnic table, and loungers. Feel the ocean breezes flow over you as your cares slip away. Run off the beach and straight up to your cottage, take a shower in the outside shower, and sit in a rocking chair until you dry off from your swim. The clothes line is usually seen with towels and bathing suits flapping in the wind.

Make yourself some 'Frogmore Stew', throw it out on some newspapers on the large dining room table and tell the kids to dig in. Hang up some party lights and dance on the deck to some Jimmy Buffett as the sun sets in the distance. This is the cottage to take you back to a simpler time!

This house is well stocked with items that many of the rentals do not include. The kitchen is fully stocked with enough dishes, glasses, silverware, pots, pans, etc. to feed large family. My dad thinks he is Emeril so you will find all kinds of gadgets in the kitchen drawers. We also have books and movies in one of the entertainment centers for you to borrow during your stay.

For all you movie buffs and sports enthusiasts, you can sit in the living room and enjoy movies or sports on the large HDTV complete with BlueRay DVD Player and surround sound. Look out the window and watch the ocean instead of the commercials!

Wireless Internet, Phone Service and Time Warner Cable are included. There is a flatscreen TV and cable in every bedroom.

Our family has been so spoiled by this beach house that to go anywhere else is a letdown. The location is perfect, you will feel a stress let down as you cross over the bridge to the island and transition to 'island time'.

Staying at the family friendly OIB is the BEST place to be, but if you long for some night life and outlet shopping, you are only a few minutes away. Myrtle Beach is only 20 - 30 minutes south, and Wilmington 45 minutes north on Hwy 17. Calabash is known for the best seafood in the nation and it is a mere 10 minutes away. If you want to catch a movie, Coastal Cinemas at Shallotte is 10 minutes from your door. Golfers, there are golf courses all around you. Historic Southport, NC is only 35 minutes away.

About Eric Hall

Our family lives in the central part of North Carolina but have been traveling to Ocean Isle Beach on weekends forever. My parents are retired and my husband and I both work in the public school system of NC. We have three children, one graduated from UNC and is a math teacher, married with two children, the other graduated from UNCW as a math major and is teaching high school math and is newly married, and the other is a freshman at UNCW with plans to eventually attend graduate school to study Occupational Therapy.

Why Eric Hall chose Southern Coast

This is a family beach house that has been in my family for AGES. We originally owned a house on the same lot but wanted to update so we sold the older home, moved it, and built a new one on the lot. Since then the house has had several remodels and upgrades.

What makes this house unique

The very BEST thing about this beach house is its location. After staying ocean front in an area that is located on a part of the island that is not very crowded, we are spoiled. Plus we like its location which is close to but not at a lot of other touristy places, so if we want laid back, we lay back, if we want to get in the middle of it, we go to Myrtle.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful cottage with us. One awesome NC storm brought the coyotes running across the dunes!

Best location! Right on the beach, quiet, beautiful ocean view.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place for a family vacation. Far enough away from from Myrtle Beach to be restful, but close enough to enjoy the activities. The house is cozy, not fancy, and roomy enough for a large family. We especially loved having coffee on the deck in the morning. We chased crabs, flew kites, and marveled at dolphins rolling in the waves. The sun left us tanned and happy. It was the perfect vacation.

Everything about this property made for a relaxing stay. It was roomy, comfortable and convenient. We enjoyed the views of the ocean from the back porch and the living room.

This was one of the best vacations I have been on! The house was awesome, it had more kitchen items than you could imagine! This place has everything. Bedrooms were great, bathrooms were great, and the deck was full of comfortable seating. When we come back to OIB, I hope this location is available, it really made our vacation very enjoyable!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you liked it! We try to update part of the cottage each year so I'm glad you liked the bathroom upgrades and the kitchen supplies. I try to keep my dad out of those kitchen stores at Tangers at Myrtle Beach to no avail. It's our favorite place on earth to relax so I'm glad you got to enjoy it for a little while too. Hope you come back and stay with us next summer, and look for even more upgrades!
