About Dave and Amy

Dave and Amy purchased this house in 2014

Why Dave and Amy chose Ocean Isle Beach

Our family has been vacationing at OIB for more than 16 years. Our kids have grown up coming to to OIB and we have made very special memories here. After many years of renting we have put together what we feel is the the ultimate luxury beach house. We understand what makes great vacations and most importantly great memories and will do our best to make your stay unforgettable.

Please visit our newest house finished in 2017. Endless Summer VRBO 986369.

What makes this house unique

beach. Enjoy ocean views off the very large second and third floor front decks and enjoy unobstructed Inter-coastal views out the back. The reverse floor plan allows you to spend time on the main third floor while relaxing in our large living room and dining room or while enjoying fantastic views of the Ocean. The entire home is professionally decorated with wonderful comfortable furniture and decorations to get you and your family in a relaxed state of mind. Hickory wood floors on the third floor, beautiful tile on the second floor and lush carpet in all the bedrooms make this house appealing throughout. The elevator stops at all floors and makes it a breeze to bring up groceries, luggage or yourself after a long day at the beach. The upgraded appliances and amenities in our very large kitchen along with the layout makes it easy and enjoyable to feed large groups of hungry people after a day at the beach. The kitchen is equipped with two dishwashers, convection oven with warmer, extra large refrigerator, beverage cooler, ice machine and an unbelievable view.

Relaxing and Memorable Thanksgiving Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Forever Summer was the perfect beach house for a family Thanksgiving gathering. The house was spacious with all the kitchen essentials to prepare the perfect Thanksgiving dinner. The house was immaculate with all high end finishes. Dave was very helpful in getting the pool heated for our kids to enjoy in November. I would highly recommend Forever Summer for any seasonal vacation.

A great setting for a perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Forever Summer was a beautiful home with every detail thought of. We had plenty of space for an extended family vacation and the amenities were top of the line. The finishing touches were the sound system, double dishwashers, ice machine and drinks fridge! In addition to the beautiful house, we were so close to the beach, but also enjoyed gorgeous views of both the beach and the intracoastal waterway. Check in and out process was so easy and Dave and Amy were very responsive to any questions. Can't wait to go back some day!

Exceeded our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

Forever Summer exceeded our expectations. The location was great and the accommodations & furnishings better than we could have imagined. The kitchen was awesome and fully equipped with new appliances.... perfect for 2 foodie chefs. Everything was in great condition - no shop-worn or stained upholstery, or carpets. The beds were comfy and the owners have thought of everything. The top front deck was huge with great ocean views....our goal was to relax and re-connect. And that is exactly what we did. We're happy to recommend Forever Summer ...just wish we had booked an extra night or two.

Owner's Response: Jackie, Thank you for the kind words and it was nice meeting you and your guests. Just like you we love to get away for a long weekend with friends especially this time of year. The Ocean is warm, you have the beach to yourself and most importantly the days are in the 80's. Thanks for taking such good care of our home and come back and see us soon! Dave and Amy

This home was a perfect size for our family of 8 adults and 4 children. The layout of the home was cozy but yet spacious enough that everyone had plenty of space. The design and decorations were beautiful and charming. The home had all we needed in the kitchen plus some, throughout the home and even for our beach time. The access to the beach was just steps away, which is convenient and makes ease especially with little ones! Without a doubt, our favorite place we've stayed at OIB and we will definitely return!!

Owner's Response: Thanks Michelle! We love the layout of the home as well as it provides areas and bedrooms to get away and rest. The decorations were mostly done by Amy and she has made it as though it was our full time home. The 3rd floor with its views and kitchen is where folks hang out the most and folks go on and on about the view. Glad you enjoyed it and come back and see us! Dave and Amy

Ocean Isle Beach
Car: recommended

Ocean Isle Beach is a family-oriented area that boasts equal access to the Atlantic ocean and Inter-coastal waterway. Whether you prefer sitting on the extra large deck watching dolphins play, cooking your favorite dish for your family and friends in our gourmet kitchen, or showing off your golf prowess at one of 45 local courses you will find Forever Summer your destination for relaxation and reconnection. Ocean Isle Beach is known for beautiful southward facing views of the Atlantic ocean and equal access to the Inter-coastal waterway. Some of our family's favorite activities include deep sea fishing, jet skiing, and simply playing on the beach. The local restaurants offer diverse cuisine featuring local fresh daily catches. One of the best things about our location is you are equi-distance from Willmington or Mrytle Beach (approx. 40 miles) where you can find all the activities you could ever want on a beach vacation. It is always nice at the end of the day to return to the peace and tranquility of OIB.
