About Paula Grossman

We purchased 'Sandy Toes & Salty Kisses' after relocating to Cary, North Carolina from East Fishkill, NY. We have visited many beaches along the East Coast and never experienced anything as unspoiled and tranquil as Ocean Isle Beach. The family traditions and memories created at the beach, away from the rush of daily life, are the most important thing to us. We hope you love Ocean Isle as much as we do!

Paula Grossman purchased this condo in 2012

Renting from a stranger is nothing short of a leap of faith. We entrusted our annual family vacation to Paula, owner of Sandy Toes & Salty Kisses. It was a wonderful decision! With a range of ages - my parents, my teen-age kids and my youngest brother's toddlers, the condo was equipped for everyone. The location was optimal, unit was clean, kitchen full of enough pots, pans, serving pieces - etc, everything in perfect working order. The layout - with each of the 4 bedrooms having it's own bathroom - made life so easy. I couldn't have asked for a better situation. We will be back and highly recommend Sandy Toes & Salty Kisses! .

Just Like Being Home!

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing in Ocean Isle Beach since 1994. Four years ago we searched for a condo thru VRBO and found Sandy Toes and Salty Kisses. My husband connected with Paula immediately! Walking into this condo is like waking into our home. It is clean, sunny, and so family friendly. We have not wanted to change our vacation spot. Our grandson cried when he had to leave this last vacation. He loves having his own big bedroom and a bath. Also, he is just steps away from the beach. It is a great place to create family memories. In fact, we are now taking our Christmas card picture here every year! Paula has become a friend...not just a person we rent from. She is wonderful! I highly recommend Sandy Toes and Salty Kisses!

Great location, Great owner

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 stayed here for 6 weeks while we searched and bought our new home. The location was perfect! Walk to the beach, access to a pool and four beautifully decorated bedrooms was a perfect fit for us. Owner was gracious and easy going - we needed to boost the internet for my WFH hubby and owner obliged. Kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans and dishes making cooking for the family a breeze. Loved the deck - we ate out at the picnic table and watched the sunset set almost every night! With four bathrooms and a big living room, we never fought for space. The little touches were great - a shopping cart to bring up bags, a fun game on the porch that even my 4yo could enjoy!, take out menus from local joints and washer and dryer in the unit. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to stay by the beach!

Famiy Celebration

  • 5 of 5

We had a family vacation at Sandy Toes and Salty Kisses and enjoyed our stay. The condo looked just as beautiful as the pictures. Paula was great to work with and did everything she promised. It's delightful to work with someone so honest and caring. It's a great place to stay and enjoy a week at the beach.

Very Nice Condo

  • 4 of 5

This was our fifth time to OIB and the third different Islander Villa in which we have stayed. The condo was very nice. It is close to the beach. The condo was clean and well-maintained. Paula was great to work with and was very attentive to our questions and requests. The only thing we would have preferred would have been more rocking chairs on the balcony/deck. The picnic table wasn't as functional for us, and only having 2 rockers made it difficult for everyone to be able to sit and relax on the condo. Again, though, this place was very nice.
