About Dave and Amy

Powell, Ohio

Dave and Amy purchased this house in 2014

Why Dave and Amy chose Southern Coast

Our family has been vacationing at OIB for more than 14 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 unforgetable.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy ocean views off the very large second and third floor front decks and enjoy unobstucted 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 amentities 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 equiped with two dishwashers, convection oven with warmer, extra large refrigerator, beverage cooler, ice machine and an unbelievable view. Relax on the porch while watching your kids play on the beach or have a pool party and take a swim in our large 14'x26' pool. An upgraded stereo system can be played throughout the third floor, deck and the pool area. Handicap accessibility throughout makes this home an available getaway for everyone.

End of year getaway

  • 5 of 5

Once again we escaped the holiday rush to start the year right On the Beach. We love this time of year quiet, great weather, refreshed. Walking barefoot on the beach is a great way to get those 10,000 steps on your fit bit with all the pleasure. I love to cook and this kitchen has it all. Dine in on the large family table inside or out. This house has amazing oversized decks. The sound system has speakers outside for whale watching in a rocker or meditation and yoga. Room for anything. The fireplace makes cool evenings warm and cozy. We walked in with our clothes and everything else is provided. Needless to say we love it here. Thanks Dave and Amy for this beautiful getaway.

Great choice for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Forever Summer is a beautiful 5 bedroom, well appointed beach home with lovely decks, lots of eating space, well furnished kitchen and great pool. Everything was clean and as promised, owners very responsive and clearly take pride in their home. Pac and Play and high chair also included. Easy digital check in. Not front beach, but excellent ocean view and close access to beach. Definitely would recommend for great Ocean Isle vacation.

Beautiful and Well Worth it!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have rented this house and we loved it, yet again! Even with a few hiccups, the owner/maintenance crew were quick to respond and fix the issues. The kitchen is well-equipped with dual dishwashers, an ice machine, and all the needed utensils/cooking necessities! We enjoyed the pool (much bigger than previous houses we have rented) and the kids enjoyed the pool and beach toys/chairs provided. As a Mom, I am thankful you provide pool towels as well as bath towels! Such a great idea! The walk to the beach is 2 minutes max and that is with carrying chairs/bags/ quick and easy! The house was CLEAN and that is one of our biggest requirements and why we chose to come back again! The entertainment system is super for all the big and little kids alike! We enjoyed watching the Olympics this year on the big screen! Thanks again for a wonderful vacation! Certainly a great beach house!

Owner's Response: April, Thanks for coming back and seeing us again, we love great repeat renters. Our biggest complements are the Kitchen and all the extras provided. As I have said after coming to OIB for 15 years we know what we like and most of our guests go on and on about the kitchen. Linens, towels and a big pool are always a plus for families. Thanks for the mention of the house being very clean our Cleaners treat it as their own and do a wonderful job! Thanks for the kind words and coming back to visit Forever Summer! Dave and Amy

Forever Summer was the most beautiful house. This is the first time that the pictures were exactly what you get upon arrival. We had 5 families and there was enough room for everyone to be comfortable. The beach of course was awesome, but the pool was such a luxury to have in the late afternoons and evenings. Dave and Amy have truely done everything to make your vacation the best!! I thank you for sharing your amazing home with us!!

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.
