About the property

4 BR, 3.5 Bath with Ocean View

Looking for a relaxing, fun, and completely comfortable beach getaway? Well, look no more! At 4 Private Drive, in the Summer Place community in Ocean Isle Beach, you will find a peaceful 'home away from home,' as comfortable as your own home but only steps from the sand in one of North Carolina's prettiest island beaches.

This home has an open floor plan, great for entertaining, hanging out, and if needed keeping an eye on any kiddos. The house has a master suite on the first floor, with a king bed and a bathroom featuring a walk in shower, garden tub, and dual vanity. The living room couch is a pull out and can sleep one or two guests. Upstairs, there is a bedroom with another king bed, a bath/shower, and two bedrooms linked by a jack-and-jill style bathroom with a shower and dual vanity as well. One of these rooms has a queen bed, and the other is a pyramid style bunk - one or two guests can sleep on the bottom bunk and one on the top bunk. There's a trundle in this room for additional sleep capacity. The upstairs includes a loft area overlooking the living room, and there is a twin pull out sofa in this loft.

The kitchen is fully stocked, including some nice extras such as a griddle for cooking breakfast, juicer, blenders, steam pot, any bar equipment you might need, a high chair, and of course coffee pot/microwave/toaster. There are TVs in every room and broad cable selection in the main room, with high speed secure internet access. There are plenty of toys/books/movies for your entertainment. There is a screened in porch right off the kitchen, a nice, wide wrap-around porch for sunbathing that also overlooks the community pool, which is right next door (we will provide you with keys for the pool). Summer Place is a small circular neighborhood. From our house, it's a one to two minute walk to beach access, literally just across the street to get to the beach. When you return to the house, there's a grill, picnic table, horse shoe pit, and outdoor shower for you to have lunch, have fun, and shower before heading in.

About Nicole Holcomb

My husband and I have lived in Charlotte now for about 15 years. We both love the Carolina beaches and culture along the coast, and have been dreaming about owning a beach house for many years. At long last the dream has come true. We hope your stay at the house will be one that you will remember fondly for years to come.

Nicole Holcomb purchased this house in 2013

Why Nicole Holcomb chose Ocean Isle Beach

We fell in love with Ocean Isle Beach the very first time we crossed over the bridge onto the island and got our first look at what can only be described as a spectacular view of the ocean, the intracoastal waterway, and the island itself, dotted with brightly painted beach houses, quaint shops, and fishing boats. It took us a while to find the right house, but as soon as we walked into 4 Private Drive, we felt at home. Since we enjoy traveling with friends, the open floor plan and big kitchen make for great entertaining and easy supervision of any little ones (we have two). There's a screened in porch right off the kitchen, and a wraparound balcony that overlooks the community pool, making it easy to stay close to both the grownups having a cocktail on the porch and the kids splashing away in the pool. We love it and can't wait to share it with you. We hope you will have a wonderful vacation at Ocean Isle Beach!

What makes this house unique

This home is very close to the ocean (just cross the street and you are there) and within walking distance (less than a mile) of the pier. There are some great local seafood restaurants and an ice cream shop also within walking or very short driving distance (about a mile). We particularly love Sharky's (which has a pickup counter), Pogie's (this is a restaurant with a rooftop bar looking out over the intracoastal waterway - the sunset view from there is truly stunning), and for some excellent calabash the Giggling Mackeral is close by. Also, if you want to cook at home there is a grocery store right over the bridge so you can stock up at the beginning of your trip and keep your budget within reason. We keep plenty of toys/highchair at the house for our guests to use as needed. There's a picnic table and outdoor shower for picnics and rinse off before heading indoors. By the way, for any wine lovers, you will be pleased to discover that there is a wonderful local winery (Silver Coast) in the area (the drive is 15 minutes at the most).

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at summer place. The house is is very beach friendly, and has a nice view of the ocean (not the beach,) from the back deck. Anything we needed was there, all we had to buy was food. Plenty of space, and a literal 2 min walk across the street to the beach. Would definitely recommend.

Property great.

  • 5 of 5

The house was really nice. Very spacious and accomodated our family with 2 children, Having TV's in each room was a plus, the pool next door and open prior to Memorial Day really was great for the kids. To top it all off, the weather was perfect! Also, everyone at Williamson Realty was so nice, very friendly. You picked a nice realtor to rent you beach house,

We love "Summerplace" to make our memories, See you next year!

Awesome Girls' Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our 4 day trip was wonderful! The house is beautiful, very well maintained, and has every convenience and utensil you would expect to have at home. It is located in a perfect spot with the wrap around porch overlooking the pool and with a view of the ocean. It is right across the street from a public beach access, so the walk to the beach was shorter then I expected. (The only way it could be shorter is if you get a house right on the beach, but the $price/second of walking does not quite compute ☺)

The local restaurants are within walking distance, so I did not use my car at all other then for a quick trip to a grocery store with a stop at a local seafood market. The weather was amazing for the first week of October, so we walked everywhere on the beach and enjoyed cocktails, local cousin with a view, and a beach town atmosphere!

Perfect weekend at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We're already booking this place for next year! Could not have picked a better place for our guys weekend. The house easily accommodated the nine of us and had every amenity we needed and then some. It was spotless - this was the cleanest of any place we've rented in past six years (and we've rented many other homes / cabins). House was fully stocked with everything we needed (good thing since we forgot alot!). The owners were very gracious and provided all the info we needed and made checking in and out so simple. House is centrally located near beautiful beach / pool and local restaurants. Personally I'm taking my wife and kids here as well as another outting with our mens workout group (F3, check it out on web). Many, many local attractions and close enough to Myrtle beach to enjoy that area without getting pestered by the traffic. Great weekend, loads of fun!!

Felt at home right away

  • 5 of 5

Great rental, especially for families. We have two young children (1 and 4) and the rental worked out fine for us. It was a shorter than expected walk to beach-- turn the corner and walk across the street to beach access. Beach access is stairs and ramp (important to know if you are carrying a lot of beach supplies). The deck is great. It can be closed off so kids can run around while you relax on deck. We often ate on the deck or inside the screened in porch. One side of the deck overlooks the pool, which is great if you have older kids. The house is very clean and cozy. We felt at home within minutes of arriving. It's decorated casually and there are lots of toys/ games for kids, including beach toys. The kitchen was well equipped and we didn't find we had to run out for any basic supplies. We did a grocery run (less then 10 minutes away) and cooked in most nights. There is a great seafood restaurant we did go to twice. It is right as you come across the bridge (the laughing mackerel, I think) and we ordered delicious pizza from Michaelangelo's based on a menu we found in the kitchen (highly recommend).

Overall, this is a just great rental for just hangin' at the beach- with friends and/or family. We plan on staying here again.

Family Time

  • 5 of 5

I want to Thank You for sharing your Beach home with my family.

Our stay was great , EXCEPT the day we arrived we opened the door and found a VERY DIRTY House. we booked this through Williamson Reality , and feel it is their responsibility to make sure the rental property is clean before the next guest arrive.

Nothing in this house had been cleaned, floors , bathrooms , kitchen etc...

I immediately took pictures to show the reality company the issue.

I can say they had someone come out with-in the hour.

The house was then cleaned in a RUSH but cleaned.

I owned a condo at Sea Cabins in Cherry Grove for many years and rented it to family & friends so I understand the importance of a once a year family vacation.

I can't say enough about your beautiful beach Home but I feel you needed to be aware of the reality company you are paying to help take care of your investment.

As far as I'm concerned Williamson Reality does not fulfill there obligation to there customer (being you).

Thank you again for the use of your beach home.

Owner's Response: Hi Kim, Thank you for the nice comments about our beach home. We are glad you enjoyed the majority of your stay! My husband and I were very disappointed and concerned to hear about your check in experience. We spoke with the owner at Williamson to make sure this doesn’t happen going forward. Cleanliness is #1 in my book as well. The owner did explain to me the steps they took to rectify the issue by (as you mentioned) getting cleaners in the house within an hour, shampooing the carpets, and otherwise getting the house in tip-top shape for the remainder of your stay. I hope this helped. This is the first time we have had a bad experience with the property manager’s cleaning crew, and we were reassured to hear that at least they were quick to resolve the issue. I’m glad you enjoyed the rest of your stay at the house and hope that we’ll see you again next year. :) Sincerely, Nicole
