About the property

Welcome to 'Here We Are,' a classic, colorful cottage located right on the water at Ocean Isle Beach, NC. Kick back and relax in this 4 bedroom, 2 bath oceanfront house with private steps to the beach. This charming vacation home features an open floor plan, newly remodeled bathrooms and a spectacular view of Carolina's Crystal Coast.

'Here We Are' is located within blocks of OIB's newest public park and a short walk to the nearest watering hole--a beachside tiki bar at The Winds resort. Golfers are a short drive away from any one of the area's 55+ championship golf courses, and foodies will enjoy the cottage's close proximity to the area's many culinary offerings.

Removed from the noisy hotel crowds, 'Here We Are' is located along a quieter stretch of beach, making it the perfect vacation spot for families, fishing enthusiasts and those who appreciate lots of sandy elbow-room. The cottage sits near the point of the island, where beach-walkers and shell-collecters go to enjoy a peaceful stroll along the pristine natural areas around the ICW inlet.

Features Include:

- Big-screen HD TV & premium cable (300+ channels)

- High-speed Internet/Wifi

- Large deck with rocking chairs, a dining table + additional bench seating (and a gate to help keep little beach bums contained)

- Water faucet on the private walkway for rinsing sandy toys, feet and beach gear

- Washer/dryer + iron/ironing board

- Central air/heating + ceiling fans

- Two enclosed outdoor showers

- Charcoal grill

- One-car garage with extra space for storing beach gear, kayaks and bikes.

- Private driveway with plenty of parking

- More cookware than you'll know what to do with

Cute comfy oceanfront cottage with wonderful deck!

  • 5 of 5

Have enjoyed staying at"Here We Are" 2 years in a row now; the cottage has plenty of room for the nine of us and we all can sit down at the dining table at the same time for meals and evening games! The oceanfront deck and steps right down to the beach is fabulous. Also love the east end of the beach and its quietness. Hope to return again!

Perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

We loved location!! True beachy feel to the house ..only thing I would change was to add new mattresses. Some need updated to improve a good nites sleep. Otherwise it was perfect.

Great time, nice place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in the "here we are" cottage. We found it clean and cozy. The kitchen had plenty supplies and the rooms were large enough for 7 adults and a 2 year old. I loved easy beach access and the big porch facing the ocean. The owners were amazing to work with. I hope we can make it back there soon.

From the road, was not sure of the curb appeal ~ but one step.into this cottage, we knew we were at the right place. Best location on the beach. This property is for those families that want to be "on the beach" We shared this with our kids and grandkids ~ total of 10 and had plenty of space. Step out the back door onto the deck and then to the beach. Very neat cottage with everything we needed. Will definitely book this again. The owner is very accessible and listens to your ideas of suggestions. Thank you for sharing your home..
