Spacious Canal 5BR home: Perfect for a memorable family centered week.

Bedrooms 5
Space 2,300 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

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

We hope you enjoy our 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 just been renovated (March 2018) with new Mission cabinets, an island and granite counter tops. There is an 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 island seats another 3 at counter island 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.

Convenient beach access with showers is just a short walk away - approximately 300 yards. Additionally, car and golf cart parking is available is desired or necessary. (Travelers can rent a golf cart on the island if desired).

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. From our home, my favorite run is to take a Left on Second street, headed east then all the way down to the end of the island, turning toward the inter coastal and running to the gazebo. That is 2.2 miles. Then bring it back... 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 West, 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.

About David

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.

David purchased this house in 1994

Why David chose Ocean Isle Beach

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.

Absolutely perfect locale,beautiful & updated inside, excellently cared for and clean! SPACIOUS!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved every moment of our stay. Weather was perfect, beach lovely and within a short walk from this wonderful house. I can't stress how excellent the location is, with it's own boat dock, lovely panoramic sunset views from the yard and the huge balcony! Quick trip to two great groceries, parks, museum, yummy ice cream shop.

BUT THE HOUSE is the best! Very large and lovely and great for gatherings - super long table so all can sit for meals or games. Beautifully updated kitchen, baths & flooring, deck off the kitchen too! Spacious family room with views and 5 bedrooms with baths!!!!! Even a grassed yard for barbecues and play time. This property will WOW you and you will want to go back!

Overall property was perfect

Overall, the property was perfect. The king size bedroom bathroom was dirty and had ants. That was the only issue we had. We will be scheduling our travel for next year.

Great home - comfortable and roomy!

  • 5 of 5

Well-stocked kitchen, spacious layout - everyone had their own space! Great relaxing weekend with family and friends! Loved the canal access - we rented kayaks and enjoyed kayaking around in the canals all over the island! Nothing better than Fall at OIB!

Great for a golf trip

  • 5 of 5

We stay in the house every year for a guys golf trip and it's perfect for what we need. Ton's of great golf, good restaurants, a dock when we have gotten a boat in the past and plenty of space for all the guys, bags, etc. Highly recommended!

Great Home for Family Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

I recently spent a couple nights (9-15/16-17) at this property and rented it primarily for a family reunion/beach wedding. The set-up is perfect for a grown family with several branches because the rooms are spaced out enough on different levels to give extra privacy. The dock was relaxing (the guys caught an eel off the dock), the porches/decks plentiful, the living room and bedrooms spacious, and the neighborhood very quiet! Communication was good before the trip. The only thing (and really there was ONLY ONE THING) that would make it an even better house is if there was a powder room so guests wouldn't have to go into a bedroom for a bathroom break. I would be happy to recommend this house to families and would put it at the top of my list for a future rental of my own! Thanks Goff family!

The house is a great size, amenities were there for us (beach toys, chairs, etc) and the renters are easy to deal with. A wonderful family vacation made easy by the house and no fus rental.

Walk to Atlantic ocean
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.
