Why Jonathan and/or Dale Martin chose Ocean Isle Beach

We love Ocean Isle Beach for the combination of being a great family beach, it's proximity to attractions in Myrtle Beach and Wilmington, great golf courses and great weather.

Happy Hours is such a fun home with a rich history of families and groups having a great time renting over the years.

What makes this house unique

The ability to have your entire family together under one roof with access to everything great about OIB.

The name, Happy Hours, says it all.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our week at 15 Laurinburg was spectacular. We had 10 adults and 10 kids and everyone was comfortable and happy and busy every day. The accomodations are perfect for large groups with diverse ages and the location affords easy walking to the beach and OIB attractions. We spent many hours on the canal with the kayaks and tubes and fishing, and we even had two dolphins visit at the perfect time. The game room and pool and elevator were all a big bonus for our group. Every one of us said that this home was out BEST choice yet for our family vacation.

Beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

The house was beautiful and we wish we could have stayed longer. There were a few things that if we were staying longer than we did, they would have been a problem if not fixed right away. There were a couple of bulbs out which made some areas darker than others. There were also fruit flies everywhere that we couldn't get rid of.

Other than that, the house was perfect!

Great Family Reunion Place

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I celebrated out 50th wedding anniversary at this house the the entire family. Jonathan and Dale graciously allowed us to rent their house with two grandparents (us), four children and spouses and 20 grandchildren. There was never a lack of things to do from us 75 year olds to the 2 year old. Being an owner of a rental property in Acapulco Mexico, we appreciated this house that was fully equipped and immaculate. We also did our best to leave it the way we found it and were reimbursed the full security deposit. Our son-in-law brought his fishing boat, so the canal access was of great benefit for fishing and sight seeing on the water. Lord willing, we will do this again.

2017 Read Vacation in OIB

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Happy Hours was nothing short of fabulous. The house had everything you could ever want and in many cases two of them. As you think of what the kids will enjoy the most, the dock was never in my top 5 considerations about the house. The young kids loved the dock, we caught 3 crabs and one flounder. Our 3 year old checked those pots 4-5 times a day. We will have these amazing memories of our 2017 vacation in OIB forever.... Joan Read

Everything you want and more

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely property. Everything we needed was there in the home, there was nothing that we had to get outside of the home. The owners thought of everything The home was clean and comfortable. I loved the fact that there was access to the balcony from just about every room. The views from the balconies were beautiful and relaxing. The heated pool was an excellent addition to the home. We were traveling with my elderly mom and she loved having an elevator available.

The home is in a good location, close to the beach and stores.

The owners were easy to contact. The housing manager was very friendly.

This was my first time to this area and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The home made the visit that much more pleasurable. I would definitely rent this property again and would recommend it to friends and family. I've rented other homes but this was by far the best and nicest of them all.

Thanks you Jonathan and Dale for allowing us to stay in your lovely home.

My favorite yet! Both a beauty & accommodating!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I travel quite often and we are a large crew - so we seek the larger properties that can host us all under one roof. When we arrived, we were thrilled with the home. It far exceeded our expectations. We coordinated with a local talent agency and planned a "murder mystery" that took place at the home for our last night there. The home proved to be the perfect space for our activity. The property manager was on site and always available when needed. I would highly recommend this property and the property owners! Sorry for the delayed review - but I definitely wanted to tell prospective guest about the great time that I know they will have!

8 of us went down for a quick guys weekend of golf and fishing. Couldn't have picked a better place. Lots of room, great outdoor kitchen, and convenient to grocery store and restaurants. Definitely book again for our next trip to ocean isle.
