Why Mike and Laura Downing chose Ocean Isle Beach

This is the best beach in North Carolina. We love this place and want you to love it too. You have to go to Sharkys and Pogies to eat and enjoy a drink. You must also enjoy the Friday evening concerts. Bring your boat and enjoy the waterway and the ocean.

Awesome Canal House @ Ocean Isle

  • 5 of 5

For years of traveling to both Ocean Isle and the Outer Banks in the summers we always started off in search of the one house we could just automatically select every year without the hours of searching VRBO and travel sites for a house. Two years ago we found this one and it is "the one". 19 Newport is a great location, well kept and well stocked with everything you need for a good vacation. The house is kept as if the owners routinely stay there, not a bare bones, hodge podge of furniture and items. The location being on the canal is perfect for bringing boats, kayaks, jet skis, or just a swim after a long day at the beach. Only a short walk or bike ride to the beach access. My personal favorite feature is the outdoor shower is which is huge. The indoor showers never get used the weeks we are there. The owner is easy to work with as well. The houses on either side are both family owned and very nice families.

I can easily go on about this house but you can see most in the pictures!

If you are looking for a good family beach and beach house Ocean Isle is the beach and 19 Newport is the house.

Great Canal Beach House with Short Walk to Beach

  • 5 of 5

This beach house is pretty much perfect. The space is decorated beautifully with lots of great art and nice comfortable furniture. The main living space can easily sit 5-7 people with a nice flat screen with all the channels you could want. The four bedrooms all have nice comfortable beds, but sheets are not included so be sure to bring your own. The dining area only has four chairs, but there are extra chairs around the house and the table is big enough to hold 6. The kitchen is a good size and there is plenty of prep area and counter space. There is a spacious back porch with a nice swing and view of the canal. Underneath the house is probably where we spent the most time, there is the ping pong table (which can fold and roll out of the way), a nice table and chairs, and a flat screen tv with cable. There is a hammock and two one person swings down there as well. There is a charcoal grill with electric starter and a gas grill, both with plenty of cooking area. One of the best features of the house is an outdoor shower that is huge. It is very private and has shelving and benches. The house backs up to the canal, which can be swam in at all times. At high tide, the water is probably around 12 feet deep and there are a couple of floats to use, which I definitely recommend. The dock has a ladder so getting in and out of the water is easy. There is a paddleboat which is fun (and easy) to ride around the canal and intercostal. There is a small grass area behind the house, and a lot of vegetable plants. There is enough space to park at least 3 vehicles, and probably 4. The neighbors were great when we were there, and the neighborhood is quiet. The walk to the beach is short, and there is a public beach access on the same street as the house. We usually drove the truck down because there is a large parking area at the beach access.

There are a few things to note about the house. Paper products, including toilet paper, are not included in the rental. You also have to bring your own sheets and towels. There is a washer and dryer in the storage area under the house, but packing up enough sheets and towels for a week takes up a lot of space. The house was very clean overall, but it should be said that the owners have dogs and there was a good bit of dog hair on some of the furniture.

Overall, we had a great time. There were a total of 6 adults and two children in our party and we had plenty of space without ever feeling like we were on top of each other.

Owner's Response: The cleaning crew did not clean as thoroughly as they should have. It was the first cleaning for the rental season. We do have dogs that go with us, but there were no complaints the entire season last year and the renters the next week did not complain at all, I guess you can't please everyone.

Very nice home.

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay at this vacation home was very enjoyable. Not only were the rental arrangements with the owner very convenient but also check in/out times made for a more relaxed arrival and departure. The home was lovely with numerous amenities. Seating both inside and out was very comfortable. The dock and outside shower were in good repair. Grilling was convenient with all needed accessories provided. Easy access to the beach. Overall this home made for a relaxing stay.

This house is perfect in every way! It is exactly what I would want in a home! It was immaculate, tastefully done in every way! The kitchen was stocked with everything you would ever need to cook all your meals which we did. The beds were extremely comfortable! The porches were covered which made it nice and they were furnished with very comfortable furniture! Great dock, paddle boat, ping pong, and corn hole.....who needs more? The owner was THE Best to work with! Very easy to get in touch with (this was not true with another vrbo owner)! Also returned my deposit immediately after our departure! You could not go wrong with this property! We will definitely want to stay there again!!!
