About the Property

5BR 4BA; 1 outside shower with 4 story open design.

We hope you enjoy our spacious 2300 SF home with 4 floors to create an open flowing floor plan. Relax and enjoy beach living with your family and friends at Ocean Isle Beach.
The well equipped kitchen has under the counter second ice maker, new (2015) SS Microwave, toaster oven, blender, wine glasses and all amenities for your family and friends. New large kitchen table can seat 10 and the extended kitchen counter seats four with bar stools.
The kitchen overlooks the two story great room with twenty feet of huge picture windows facing westward over the back deck, and the canal waterway.

One of our favorite times on the deck is first thing in the morning with a cup of coffee and book, or toward dinner time with appetizers and a glass of wine - talking about your round of golf, fishing or the laid back day spent on the white sands of the beach.

The Great rooom has a large Smart High Definition TV with wireless internet for your convenience. DVD Stereo VHS are all there. Stereo with standard inputs as well. Newly tinted picture windows looking west over the canal.

Convenient beach access with showers is just a short walk away - approximately 200 yards. Additionally, car and golf cart parking is available is desired or necessary.

There are many options for runners, and walkers while at OIB with sidewalks galore and natural walkways several miles long located on the East end inland. If you run the 'point to point Island Run' from our driveway to the East end, then go all the way to the west end and back to our home, this is a 11 mile route.

Golf: Brunswick County has more than 40 courses and this is before you get to the Myrtle Beach area. Our favorites are The Thistle, Panther's Run, Lions Paw, Carolina National GC, Crow Creek, Farmstead, Cape Fear National, the Pearl East, Sandpiper.

If your group plans to play more than two rounds of golf, we would recommend purchasing the Myrtle Beach Passport (Google on line) as you will get 50% rate discounts for your group of 4 golfers- it pays for itself on the second round!

Tennis: Ocean Isle Recreation Park is on Georgetown Road, about 1 mile north of the bridge. Turn there and go 1 mile for 8 hard surface tennis courts with windscreens and water there. Nice children's play area as well.

Car: Recommended

Ocean Isle is A great place to enjoy your family and friends at the beach. Lay back, relax, and walk on the white sands. This island is almost exclusively private homes to provide the atmosphere of family.

Enjoy many choices for golf. We recommend the Thistle, Sand Piper, and any of the Ocean Plantation courses with Tiger's Eye and Leopards. Also Farmstead has fast Bermuda greens.

New public tennis courts near-by, and lots of rental for bikes, kayaks, jet skis and many other water related activities.

Bring your own boat, and keep it at our dock for the week. Easy to access both the Intracoastal waterway and access the Atlantic Ocean for off-shore fishing.

Ocean Isle has a private airport if needed.

There is the Ocean Isle Marine Museum with programming especially for young children, and then there is a planetarium on the way to Sunset Beach, which is ten minutes south. Ocean Isle beach has an active program for the preservation of sea turtle nests in the dunes and we have watched night time 'turtle hatchings' during the summer months

The island is approximately 7 miles from point to point: good for running and biking with sidewalks all the way down both on First street at the ocean and Second street.

Groceries and nick- knacks are all very close with a full service Food Lion across the bridge, and several beach stores for souvenirs, beach chairs, swim gear, etc.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: We came to Ocean Isle from Charlotte back in 1970 when there was a rotating bridge to get to the island. We love this place and all of it's great memories through the three generations that have enjoyed this special place at the beach.

Why the Owner Chose Ocean Isle Beach, NC, USA:
If you have not spent time at Ocean Isle before, you will find this beach and island to be unique because there is little commercial business on the island. This creates the atmosphere of family homes, rest, and natural beauty. It is quiet and peaceful and the perfect place to just get away and relax. We do.
