About the property

Condo, 6 Bedrooms, 6 Baths (Sleeps 16)

Come enjoy this unique penthouse with panoramic oceanfront views from the front two decks and colorful sunsets from the rear covered deck facing the sound.

This top story penthouse encompasses the corner of the complex, with ocean views from five of the six bedrooms. You will enjoy the luxury of having an elevator , flat screened TV's in each bedroom and one of the largest swimming pools at Ocean Isle Beach at your disposal. The complex has a private walkway to the beach, and showers to wash your feet and chairs when you return. There is a private beach level storage closet for you to store your chairs, umbrellas and toys for each day. And we provide 10+ chairs and two umbrellas as well.

This freshly painted two story condo is equipped with new appliances and comfortable mattresses. The tiled kitchen is fully equipped. The tiled family and dining area has plenty of seating for your family and features a 55 inch Samsung flat screen TV and Blue ray player. The first level also includes four bedrooms, all with their private baths. The bedrooms have beds as follows: 1 King, 1 Queen, 1 Queen and one twin,1 Queen and 2 Twins (bunk beds). The oceanfront covered deck is the perfect place to watch dolphins or dine. Upstairs, there is an ocean front King and a second bedroom with a Queen and a twin, also with their private baths. The second story has an ocean front sunbathing deck and rear covered porch and Tiki Bar facing the intracoastal waterway and lovely sunsets.

Some renters ask- are our pictures accurate? Yes! Since we use this property exclusively on the off season, as owners we update when we see a need. In 2106 we updated our kitchen cabinets and put granite counter tops in the six bathrooms. That update included some repainting to keep the interior with a fresh look.

Ocean Isle Beach has much to explore. Young children enjoy home made ice cream from the Ocean Isle Creamery and mini golf across the street. Fine ocean front dining and tiki bar at the Isles Restaurant is a 5 minute beach walk away. Numerous golf courses are within minutes and during the summer Friday evenings you can enjoy great bands at no charge, at the museum. On Sundays you can attend church on the beach. Just bring your chair.

Nestled between a 45 minute drive to Myrtle Beach or to Wilmington, you can enjoy the shopping and entertainment ranging from The House of Blues and The Hard Rock Cafe to the Civil War Museum and USS NC Battleship Memorial.

In the evenings, you can watch the sun set with 180 degree views from the ocean to the Sunset Beach bridge. Enjoy your nightcap at our custom tiki bar on the back deck. It's a great place to cap off your evening.

About Laura McNeill

We are empty nesters and we have enjoyed Ocean Isle Beach with our family for years. The beach is a short drive from our home, and we can be found often eating fish tacos at Sharky's for lunch or reading a book on the beach. We also own a 2BR/2BA unit (VRBO 474672), because we are vested in this lovely beach and well kept community.

Laura McNeill purchased this condo in 2012

Fantastic condo that's a great value.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying in Laura’s beautiful condo. Quick highlights:

• You can have a lot of folks (we had 13) and not feel like your tripping over each other b/c you have the two decks, tiki bar, pool and of course the beach all right there. Another easy space-maker is walking down two doors to the Isles for a drink and/or meal. Also, each bedroom has a tv and its own bathroom so no sharing that space.

• Meal prep: the kitchen is fully stocked and there are grills by the pool.

• Beautifully decorated (but not “stuffy”).

• Great deal. It’d easily cost between 2-3 times more to get a house with this many bedrooms/baths and amenities this condo has.

• If you need anything or have a problem, Laura is super responsive.

Tip: You can order groceries online from Lowes Food and when you arrive at the beach, pull into the dedicated pick up spot and they’ll run your groceries out to you! It’s about $6 which was fine w me b/c I didn’t want to start my vacation with a 45 min trip to the grocery store. Also, be sure to check out the weekly free beach music concerts at OIB and neighboring beaches.

Again, great place and great host. Highly recommend.

Lovely condo and area

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to OIB (we're used to south Myrtle Beach area), so we had many questions. It also was our first time staying in a condo-we usually stay in a beach house. We weren't quite sure what to expect. Laura answered every question, and quickly. The location is fabulous--the town is beautiful, as are beaches. Beaches are nice and flat, as they are further south. There is a great sandbar to the west, near the inlet, at low tide. The condo is as lovely as it looks in the photos--love the decor. We had plenty of room for our group of 13, and everyone loved it, from kids to grandparents. The condo was nice and clean. The parking level storage area is a great benefit, so you don't need to lug your sandy chairs and surfboards upstairs. There was no noise from neighbors. We loved having the pool option in case jellyfish are abundant, and the elevator was nice for loading and unloading (or for creaky knees), although we did take the stairs quite a bit. The area is quiet, and everyone is friendly. We loved having Lowes deliver our grocery order on the first day. We ate at The Isles (a two-minute walk) for my birthday, which was delicious. We also tried Charlie Grainger's for barbecue and Causeway Gourmet--both great options. There are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby to choose from. All appliances work well, and the kitchen is well stocked if you prefer to cook your own meals. One huge plus for this girl with a spinal condition was comfortable mattresses! I also loved that there were blackout curtains in some bedrooms. We all enjoyed watching the foxes in the dunes, and the men and kids enjoyed fishing on the Intracoastal (we brought a small boat) and the OIB pier. We thought we'd drive to Barefoot Landing in Myrtle Beach, but we enjoyed OIB so much we never did. We absolutely would rent again.

Everything was awesome!! Elevator was hot so I hiked it to 3rd floor. Lost weight on vacation. Great views.

Owner's Response: David, you are right. The elevator is in the middle of the property, and not located in a luxury department store. Being on the top end of the property, the steps are literally at your door, and we use them as often as we can.

A Great Trip

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family spent the week of the Fourth of July here and what a great trip it was. There were 15 of us ranging in age from 63 to 5 months, but being right on the beach kept everyone plenty entertained. The pictures of the condo were very accurate and no once did we feel cramped (and the bathrooms in each bedroom were nice). The kitchen was very well stocked, making it easy to cook for all. Plus there is a nice grocery store less than 10 minutes away. The beach was great, good waves to play in but also shallow for the little kids. If you come the week of the Fourth, the fireworks from the pier are visible from the deck and the family room. There are plenty of things to do on the island and even more choices nearby. The owner was also great to work with, always got back to me right away when I had questions. We had a great time.

Fantastic Week

  • 5 of 5

We took 3 groups, one with 2 teenagers and their mom, one with 3 young boys and their parents, and 2 single women. The layout and size of the Condo was perfect . It allowed all 3 groups to have their own personal space when it was needed. The Condo was clean and neat and the owner was fantastic to work with. Could not have been more pleased. We were only a short drive to Myrtle Beach for the group those that wanted to spend some time there for shopping.

Beautiful condo and a fantastic deal!

  • 5 of 5

We have a large family gathering each summer (12 of us requiring 6 bedrooms, ages 10-88) so finding a place that can accommodate us under one roof AND that doesn’t cost a fortune is quite a feat. We need a pool (because you know there’s always going to be at least one day when the jelly fish are passing by) and that is ocean front (because where else would you stay at the beach? Also, my mom has limited mobility so although she can’t get down to the beach, she can sit on the deck and enjoy the view). The condo is beautifully and perfectly decorated for the beach with a well-stocked kitchen. Love that there are six bathrooms and the kids LOVED the tiki bar. (bonus points for the foxes in the dunes. how fun to watch!) Laura is fabulous with a tremendous sense of humor and southern hospitality. We are definitely returning.
