About the Property
4 BRs, 2 Baths, 2nd row, private pool, screened porch, across from beach access!
There is a large porch on the front of the house with several rockers. A stairway leads up to a rooftop deck where you can take in the ocean views. On the rear of the cottage, there is a roomy screened porch with a table for dining or playing games. We also have a wicker seating set (love seat, chairs and coffee table) on the porch for ample seating. The screened porch overlooks your private pool. It serves as a second living space outdoors!
Ahhhh...The Pool! The pool is located in the backyard and is gated and fenced for privacy. It features a 'waterfall' seat at one end and a 'jetted sitting ledge' at the other. There are lounge chairs and an additional table for dining at the pool... and more rockers placed under the porch so you can sit out of the sun if needed and watch the swimmers! We also have a picnic table and grill for outdoor enjoyment. There's even a Tiki Bar complete with a bottle opener and stools. A great spot to enjoy a drink while grilling. Lots of room in garage area - bring your cornhole boards or other outdoor games - there is ample shaded space in garage.
There is an outside shower stall. You can conveniently rinse off the sand before you hit the pool or enter the house. There is a retractable clothesline close by to hang your towels and suits - or you can use the boat cleats on the wall outside of the stall for drying towels.
Ample parking under house and in pebbled driveway. Sweet Tee is the perfect spot to enjoy your visit to OIB!
* New in 2015 - our cottage is located two streets down from a newly built accessible beach ramp. While our house is directly across from a public beach access point, some guests may find the accessible access point helpful.*

Once you cross the bridge onto Ocean Isle Beach, the 'Sweet Tee' cottage is located mid-island on the west side. From the cottage, you can walk directly across the street to the public beach access walkway and you are on the beach. An accessible ramp access point is two blocks away (very short walk). The pier is a 5-10 minute walk via side walk or beach walk. When you are not relaxing on the beach or enjoying the private pool at the house, you can play putt putt, fish off the pier, visit numerous ice cream & surf shops and restaurants and bars.
If you have golfers in your group - you will be delighted with the numerous area courses. Favorite courses include River's Edge in Shallotte, The Thistle in Sunset Beach, Sea Trail in Sunset Beach, Tiger's Eye in Ocean Ridge Plantation and Glendornoch in Little River SC. (All very close - 10-15 minute drives.) There's a reason why the cottage has 'Tee' in the name!
Seafood restaurants are bountiful. There are several on the island and MANY others within a short 10-15 minute drive to Calabash NC. Our family loves The Boundary House in Calabash and Inlet View (between OIB and Shallotte) where you can dine overlooking the waterway and see Holden Beach - another area island). We also love the Sugar Shack - a Jamaican inspired local restaurant just back over the bridge. For lunch, we love a visit to The Purple Onion in Shallotte - and there is a movie theater in Shallotte as well. The Causeway Gourmet is another wonderful local restaurant (take out available and delivery too) just back over the bridge. Everything on the menu is wonderful and they make great desserts! Pizza delivery available too. There is a Lowe's grocery store within 5 minutes and a local convenience store (Sheffield's) on the island. The local ABC store is just back over the bridge near Lowe's Grocery.
Into fishing? You can fish off the pier or charter a trip at the Ocean Isle Fishing Center. Surf fishing is also fun!
There are cute shops in the area and there is a Tanger Outlet within a 30 minute drive to North Myrtle Beach SC. Barefoot Landing in NMB is also a popular entertainment destination. The House of Blues and other attractions and shopping are located there.
You can head north for a day trip to Wilmington NC. Wilmington is the 'Hollywood of NC' - many films and TV shows are filmed there. You can also visit the Battleship North Carolina and stroll the downtown area. A day trip to Southport is also fun. We really love the restaurant Fishy-Fishy - great food and wonderful water views.
We love the versatility of staying on a small island that isn't too 'commercial' and has a small town feel - but if we want a change of pace, there are MANY things to do within 30 minutes of OIB.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: My husband and I are both North Carolina natives and met in college. I am the nature lover and am content to be outside all day - on the beach, on the porch or at the pool! My husband is a GOLF FANATIC! He loves the area for the wonderful golf courses - hence the name of the cottage - Sweet Tee! We own a real estate company in Winston-Salem and have a lot of experience with managing our own rental properties as well as those of our clients. When we choose a vacation property, we want to feel as comfortable in the rental as we do in our own home. We have put a lot of TLC into 'Sweet Tee' and hope you will feel it is your home away from home! We are always happy to talk to our renters about the house and answer any questions prior to booking or prior to your trip. We also love the area and are happy to give suggestions about restaurants, shopping and things to do. It is our goal to make your trip to our home as wonderful as possible.
Why the Owner Chose Ocean Isle Beach, NC, USA:
I started coming to Ocean Isle Beach when I was a kid. In fact, my high school girlfriends and I make a trip back every year. It has always been my dream to own a place in the area. My family and I love the small town feel of the island - but we also like that you can make a trip to the Myrtle Beach or Wilmington areas in 30-45 minutes for a change of pace. From the minute you drive over the bridge onto the island, you will feel the cares of the world melt away! We purchased the cottage in the Fall of 2012 and loved renovating it. Our goal was to keep the 'charm' of the 50's/60's period cottage - but give it the 'modern creature comforts' you want in a vacation home. When we found out the lot was big enough to install a pool - we were thrilled. It is a wonderful addition! You are a few short steps to the beach - the house is right across the street from the beach access. This is HUGE when you are carrying your chairs, toys, munchies and drinks to the beach! Fun fact - this home was once located on the front row and moved by a previous owner to the second row. We've had a renter who stayed in the house when it was in both locations and then again with us decades later after we updated her. He said he had tears in his eyes coming back and staying after the renovations and re-living the memories of this house in a "new" way with his family and his young grandson.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Sweet Tee has an interior that is completely updated, inviting and comfortable - and if you love outdoor spaces - this house is for you! Sun on the roof deck, rock on the front porch, have dinner on the screened porch or swim in the pool! Have a drink at the "tiki bar." This house lives large because of all of the outdoor spaces. Location, Location, Location! You will love the convenience to the beach access. I have timed my walk across the street until my toes hit the sand and it's about two minutes! Our west, mid-island location is perfect for getting to shops and restaurants quickly. The location is not as crowded as the "far west end." Come stay for a spell! (We also own another beautiful property at OIB - VRBO #574958 - a little larger - also with pool!)
