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.

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 beach house at Ocean Isle #501168 was awesome!

  • 5 of 5

The property was everything we expected. It was clean and well-maintained from the pool to all the appliances. The view of the ocean is fantastic. The kids loved the pool and the easy access to the beach. The house furnishings are great and we had plenty of room and privacy for thirteen people. Restaurants are close to the property and are very nice. We would recommend this property to anyone. The owners care about their customers and want a good vacation experience for each family. It was a great week in July for our family!

Very beautiful house. Views from the top deck were wonderful. Felt as though you were beach front.

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay. Been renting at OIB for 25 years and this house was the best house thus far. The house was charming and very up to date. The owner was extremely responsive to questions. Kitchen was amazing! Close to a public access entrance. Pool was beautiful and bathroom in the pool area was a huge plus for the kids!

Only suggestion is a better gate for families with small children for the top floor.

Owner's Response: Katherine, Thank you for the great review and the view is one of the best in my opinion too. We built the house in hopes to retire there so we did our best to outfit it with things we like. I will look into the baby gate situation to see if there is a better choice for our guests. Thanks for the feedback and we hope you come back to see us. Dave and Amy

Perfect extended family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a great week at OIB. The house was perfect for our extended family of 15. We never felt crowded and the extra large dining table was ideal for nightly family meals. The house has everything you need to relax and enjoy the beautiful island.

The front decks have beautiful ocean views and were used from sunrise to sunset. Having both the pool and ocean were ideal for the range of ages. The ocean access was 4 doors down and a doable walk for even the toddlers in our party.

The East side of the island was less crowded but still close to restaurants, ice cream and the pier.

Overall, we would highly recommend this house. It was a wonderful setting for a great family week!

Owner's Response: Justin, We are so glad you enjoyed our home. We do love the east end and we feel it is a little more secluded and a short walk to the beach is key for little ones. We do love the views as well and spend almost 2-3 hours daily on the porches overlooking the ocean. Please come back and see us again and thanks for the great review! Dave and Amy

Beautiful even in the rain

  • 5 of 5

Home was beautiful. Clean. Extras. Easy easy short walk to beach with 5 kids. And even in the rain, that top floor family room was amazing with views and amenities. Sound system for game time at the table and then perfect for NBA playoffs. 7 adults and 5 kids. Truly enjoyed our stay.

Amazing! Simply amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Home and location are even better than described! We were traveling as a large family and there was room for everyone! No one had to share bathrooms nor bedrooms! Everything you could possibly need (except clothes, swimsuit, and food) was provided. The owners have beach chairs, toys for big and little, beach carts, fully stocked kitchen, baby gates and a high chair (super helpful), bar and prep area, surround sound, etc. I normally have to buy some of these things and end up leaving them at the property because we do not have room in the car to haul them home. And don’t even get me started on the pool, it was HUGE and heated! We spent all the downtime hanging around the pool and soaking in the sun. It was great because the kids actually put their phones and tablets down! The home has holy decks galore! The deck in the front of the home was amazing, the ocean breezes and sunsets could not have been better! Dave (the owner) was so very nice and responsive and helpful! Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with our family! Hope to be back next year!

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.
