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.

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 Southern Coast

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.

Wonderul rental property! Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed staying at this house. We have 6 little ones, one 18 month old, 2 four year olds, 2 six year olds and one eight year old. They were able to have so much freedom in the house and outside, The dock was the favorite meeting place for the kids. With adult supervision, of course, they could go out in the early morning and just enjoy being near the water. I will have such sweet memories of our two 5 yr old cousins, Breyson and Jayla, going down early and just sitting there on the dock chatting away to each other. We brought 5 kayaks with us and at one time all 5 were in the water with all six kids in them, including the little 18 month old in his own! The dock and canal were my favorite feature!

The inside was very spacious and accommodating for all of us. The one drawback we had was that all the rooms were taken at naptime with kids and there was not a bathroom separate from the bedrooms to use.

One thing that could have improved was that I did notice places that needed dusting. When we reversed the fan flow in the main bedroom clumps of dust started flying. Coming down the steps to the living room I noticed a lot of dust on the top of the lamp located at the bottom of the stairs. Also a key for the inside doors should be available. One of our kids locked the two doors on the top floor and we could not find the key to unlock them. (The child had locked them and came out so there was not one in the room to unlock them!) We ended up have to take off the knobs to get the doors open. A key over the threshold would be nice. (Believe me they did not do that again!)

All in all this was such a blessing to us. We created such wonderful memories with our family from Quito Ecuador, Texas, Mebane and Raleigh NC. Would we rent this house again.... a definite YES! Absolutely loved it!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments about our home. We will pass on the specifics of where you saw dust to our cleaning person. She should be checking fan blades regularly during the summer. None of the doors to the bedrooms have keys. Interior doors in general just have a 2 mm hole into which you insert a paperclip or something thin. If that ever happens again, that trick may save you some time in getting access to the room. Glad you enjoyed your week at the beach with your family.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my family of 12. The split levels is a big plus when you have a large family, you do not feel like you are on top of each other all week. The dock and access to the waterway worked great. We were able to catch bait fish at the dock the night before and then after fishing the waterway via boat we were able to bring the fish we caught back to the house. The walk to the beach was not bad. There was amble parking at the public access so some days we just drove over in the car. With 6 grandkids we had a lot of stuff to carry to the beach each day!

Great home, plenty of room for our entire family.

  • 5 of 5

We go to Ocean Isle every year and this is the first time we stayed at this particular home. We made the right decision in choosing this home. Plenty of space and I like the way the homes differnt levels allowed for us to have privacy for each family member. The kitchen overlooks the family room so if your cooking you can still be part of what is going on.

Closed to the beach house access and on the canal if you want to fish, crab or bring kayaks or your boat.

This is one we will rent again for sure.

Wonderful week at Ocean Isle.

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.
