Closest House To The Beach In Summer Place

Bedrooms 5
Property type house
Minimum Stay nights


About the property

5 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 14

Welcome to A Sight to Sea, located at 76 Private Drive in Summer Place on Ocean Isle Beach. Summer place is a one-street neighborhood located across the street from a beach access. Enjoy this perfect location steps from the beach access but off of the main busy road. Our house is the first house in the neighborhood (75 steps from the beach access), and it is directly across the street from the gated Summer Place pool (accessible only by Summer Place owners and renters).

A Sight to Sea has 5 tastefully appointed bedrooms, each with its own private bathroom. With three decks (one with ocean view), you have plenty of outdoor space to enjoy the ocean breezes. Our large kitchen is well equipped with every needed amenity, as well as a table that seats 10 and bar stool seating for 4. The family room has a flat screen HD TV, 2 sofas (one is a pullout) and 2 comfortable chairs. The house has wifi and extended cable on 3 HD tvs. We are very family friendly, with a portable highchair and a pack-n-play, as well as a closet full of games and toys. Outside, enjoy the use of a Weber charcoal grill, hot/cold outdoor shower, picnic table, rocking chairs and plenty of deck seating. (Unfortunately the ping pong table mentioned in a review was recently destroyed in a storm.)

Ocean Isle Beach is a great family beach. Enjoy the short walk to the beach for sunning, swimming, fishing and shelling. Boat, kayak and bike rentals are available. Enjoy the town park 1/2 mile away and the Friday night outdoor concerts during the summer. Several restaurants and ice cream shops are within a walk or bike ride away, along with a fun mini-golf.

Ocean Isle Beach is perfectly located a short drive from the Southport and Wilmington areas to the north and Myrtle Beach to the south. The famous seafood restaurants of Calabash, NC are also a short drive away.

Please note: the house must be rented by a responsible party at least 24 years of age. We are unable to accommodate student groups. Thanks!

Why Meredith Burbank chose Southern Coast

We fell in love with A Sight to Sea because of its bright open floor plan and convenience to the beach and pool. We love the house and look forward to sharing it with you!

Great location and wonderful accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to this property so we knew what to expect - convenient location; beautiful, well-stocked home with plenty of room for our growing family; responsive and friendly owner; and a great place to relax and enjoy the beach. Our family really enjoyed the pool this year which is located right across the street. The outdoor shower is also a definite plus and great for getting all that sand off before coming into the house. We would recommend this property to anyone!

Wonderful location for families!

  • 5 of 5

There were 12 of us total during our stay- 3 families with children ranging from 2-20! Vacationers were from NC and TX. The house was well accommodated for a large group, had fantastic outdoor space, everyone could sit down for a meal and was EASY walking distance to pool or beach. We enjoyed the ping pong table, the outdoor shower and a closet full of games! I would definitely recommend this home! We utilized Angie's Linens and Beachway Rentals during our stay and would recommend both also!

Thank you for sharing your home!

Comfy AND Convenient

  • 5 of 5

We popped down for a shortened spring break get away with our kids and so appreciated the management working with us on short notice. Everyone had more than enough space and their own bathrooms, which is always a plus with siblings. The bedding was comfortable, the furnishings were up to date and as pictured in the listing. The open kitchen/den concept was perfect for families, not to mention well stocked. We loved the outdoor space and most of all the quick beach access. The kids loved biking to Sunset Slush all too often! We will definitely be back.

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at A Sight to See with our family of 8 (3 couples, one single, one grandchild age 14 months!) We just relaxed and read and basically stayed put-- No reason to go anywhere else! The house is so close to the beach (and pool which we only used once because we enjoyed the beach so much!) The house was well stocked with all the necessary equipment so we also enjoyed all our meals there as well! We were really appreciative of how easy it was to get in touch with the owner to ask questions about the house and/or island as this was our first time back to Ocean Isle in many years!

Perfect start to summer

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful home! We so enjoyed a wonderful beach get-away at this beautifully-appointed and roomy beach house. The home was spotless, airy, and nicely decorated. We could really enjoy our privacy with the five bedrooms and five baths. With the beach only a short walk away, the refreshing pool across the street, many golf courses nearby, interesting paths to walk, many excellent restaurants in close proximity, etc., there was never a dull moment. However, it was a real treat to relax on one of the home's many decks. Ocean Isle sponsors free concerts on Friday night - we loved the beach music and the fun crowd! We would highly recommend this property!

Perfect Beach House for this Fam of 6!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 has rented this beach house twice and we will continue to request this property for every OIB visit. The house is very clean, well laid out, and a stocked kitchen. Best part is the quick walk to the beach with a private access and the pool. Our family will be back for sure!
