About the property

6 Bedroom, 6.5 Bathroom Deluxe Beachfront House With Pool And Elevator.

Make The Yellow Sub OIB your vacation home and create memories you will not forget. This stunning house, built in 2014, is oceanfront and it has all the amenities. The house has 6 bedrooms, 6 ½ bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, TVs and ceiling fans in each room, WiFi, decks overlooking the ocean, a private walkway to the beach, a pool, Tiki bar, a lounge area by the pool, an elevator to all floors and private parking. The house accommodates 16 not including a sofabed.

The most frequently made comment about The Yellow Sub OIB is that the pictures don’t capture the beauty of the house and the awesome panoramic views of the beach and ocean.

The main floor of the house has an open floor plan combining the kitchen, and dining and living areas. The living room has two sofas and movable chairs for conversation, viewing TV/movies, or watching the surf. There is an entertainment center with a smart TV, a Blu-Ray player, and a stereo receiver with surround sound that can be played throughout the living and dining areas. A wet bar is also located in the living area. The dining area has two tables with seating for 16 people. The gourmet kitchen has spacious granite counters, including a raised area with bar stools for eating, working on projects, or watching the chefs. The appliances are stainless steel and include a large refrigerator, dishwasher, separate ice-maker, oven, and microwave, and the counter contains a flat top cook stove. Family meals are easy to prepare with the pots and pans, measuring cups, etc. that are there, and there are sufficient number of plates, glasses, and flatware for everyone to enjoy a meal together. The master bedroom, with a king bed, is on the main floor and the master bath includes a rain shower, garden tub and walk-in closet.

The upper level of the house has 5 bedrooms; two facing the ocean each with a queen bed, two facing the street each with a double and a single bed, and a room with two bunk beds. The house is decorated with playful colors and each room has a theme which will leave you talking about the house and humming the yellow sub theme.

The ground level has an in-ground pool, which is partially under the house and therefore can be used on rainy days, a Tiki bar, gas grill, and lounge deck with deck chairs. This is a great place for cookouts, conversation, play, or just relaxing in the sun away from the sand.

There are decks on the main and upper levels facing the street and there are decks on the main and upper levels facing the beach/ocean. Those facing the beach/ocean provide a panoramic view of the beach that is spectacular. A private walkway leads to the beach and there are two out-coves in the walkway which can be used as areas for conversation or to soak up the sun.

A few steps from the house is a wonderful, white-sand beach and the gentle waves of the ocean. Take a blanket, couple of chairs, or some sand toys and enjoy the beach.

The Yellow Sub OIB will not disappoint. It is perfect for weddings, family reunions, friends getting together, retreats, golf outings, etc. Thank you for considering The Yellow Sub OIB as your spot in the sun.

About Ken and Betty

After owning a 1970-style beach house, we decided to build a brand new ocean-front house with all the amenities. It was completed in July 2014. We were married on this property and have made many beautiful memories at this location. We would like to share this opportunity with you and your family and friends. We hope you will stay with us, and we know you will enjoy the property, the views, and the spectacular Ocean Isle Beach. Best, Ken and Betty

Ken and Betty purchased this house in 2014

Why Ken and Betty chose Southern Coast

Ocean Isle Beach is known for its beautiful white sand, wide beach vistas, and family-oriented activities. We particularly like Ocean Isle Beach and the surrounding area because it is close to shopping, restaurants and many forms of entertainment. We always take long walks on the beach, often stopping at the local merchants. There are concerts, festivals, and parades on the island, and a wonderful museum with knowledgeable curators.

We enjoy day trips to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; Wilmington, North Carolina; and other Brunswick County towns and beaches. The day trips often include shopping, shows and great food. There are a large number of outstanding golf courses nearby, as well as other water sports and fishing. We like the small town feel of Ocean Isle beach and the closeness of a larger community for food, entertainment, and shopping. It is a great combination that keeps bringing us back to the southeastern part of North Carolina.

What makes this house unique

Modern beach house on the ocean built in 2014. Well appointed with all the amenities. The house has stunning views, an open floor plan, a pool and all the things one needs for a memorable vacation. Great for family reunions, weddings, business retreats, and a group of friends enjoying the beach. Decorated with a theme throughout the home with vibrant colors. Each room has a story and is appointed to enhance the experience. The Yellow Sub OIB will leave you telling your friends about this vacation experience.

Thanksgiving family get together

Can't say enough how much we loved the place!

Ken and Betty were always quick to respond to any questions we had, even suggested a place for Thanksgiving dinner. One of the nicest places on the beach.

Wish I could give more stars !!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a long week-end in the Yellow Submarine. My husband and I (both in our sixties) were

recently married and wanted a place to gather so our 5 children could get to know each other. We had a total

of 11 adults and so much fun. This house and location were perfect. The view is just amazing and only steps

from the beach. The house met all our needs..... kitchen is so well stocked, very nice sheets and bath linens,

and beautifully decorated. Ken and Betty were always quick to respond and answer our questions.

I think we've just started a new family tradition as all of our children want to return to this house next year.

We were extremely pleased with The Yellow Submarine and would highly recommend.

P.S. This was also the perfect place for Clemson fans (mostly) to enjoy a big Clemson win on Sat night.

Simply Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for my wedding! The pictures really don't do this house justice. It was completely spotless and very well kept. My family was very impressed with the amount of space and colorful and fun decor of this house. Everyone enjoyed the pool and having a dock that led right out to the beach. Ken & Betty were wonderful to work with. We'll definitely always have a sweet spot in our hearts for the Yellow Sub and can't wait to return!!!!!!!

Yellow Submarine - August 6 - 13, 2016

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation at the Yellow Submarine was wonderful. From the moment we arrived everything met our expectations and a relaxing week began. The house is beautiful, the kitchen is amazing with every possible item you would ever need, and the seating for 16 dining comfortably is so convenient. The unique theme and decor for each bedroom is fun, enhanced by comfortable beds and linens. With 8 adults and 7 children, the added gathering area upstairs was well-used for reading and visiting. The desk there was perfect for using a computer. The TVs in each room gave everyone the opportunity to watch various things - different Olympic events, news, PBS, football or a movie. The elevator was a must for us and was so convenient. The good quality of the furniture on the various decks was a plus and some spent many hours there enjoying the ocean since they couldn't go to the beach. Everyone loved the pool. The fact that it is partially shaded is so nice. One great addition would be a hand rail for entering the pool. All the water floats, the beach chairs and the umbrellas are great. One evening the cooking couple prepared smoothies at the pool as an appetizer while grilling dinner. The private walkway to the beach is so convenient. The house is convenient to many activities enjoyed by various family members - the Coastal Carolina Museum with a turtle talk, putt-putt golf, the planetarium at Sunset Beach, jet skiing, go carting, and SHOPPING for the pre- teen girls. One family brought bikes and kayaks which were enjoyed. They reported that Ocean Isle is great for biking, and there was a close place to put the kayaks in the water. We couldn't have dreamed of a more perfect time with family, and hope we will be able to return.

Wonderful relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do not do this house justice. We were a family of 13, ages from almost 5 to 67. We were all able to eat dinner together in the spacious dining area, and well equipped kitchen. There was something for everyone, the ocean was a treat for many that had never been before and the shaded pool was wonderful after playing all day in the sun and waves. Relaxing on the porch, listening to the waves. Memories to last a lifetime.

Thank you so much Ken and Betty for providing a wonderful home for our vacation.
