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. The pool is heated from April through October. In addition, the ground level has 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 Ocean Isle Beach

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 heated pool (April through October) 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.

Best Beach House Ever!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second Thanksgiving our family of three generations has spent enjoying each other's company in The Yellow Sub. The view of the ocean just never gets old! In addition to the terrific space inside the house, the beach is mere steps away. The house is extremely well equipped and comfortably furnished. Can't wait to go back!

My childhood girlfriends celebrated our 50th birthdays at the yellow submarine Sept 22-25, 2017. We were welcomed by a beautiful house that met our every needs. We agreed that this would be "our house" to meet every year to celebrate our friendship. We cannot say enough about this house and look forward to many more memories in the yellow submarine ♡♡♡♡♡

OIB 2017

  • 5 of 5

Everything was awesome! From the size of the kitchen to allow some to prepare food while others moved around to get drinks or clean up, to the themed rooms, which was my personal favorite, was well thought out. Location on the beach was perfect, not too crowded. We'll be seeing you next year during our annual beach vacation!

The house was nicer and larger than even the pictures lead you to believe! We loved it all!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from our stay in Ocean Isle Beach at the Yellow Sub OIB.....the home was perfect, spacious, and well stocked of amenities. There were 10 adults and 5 children in our group and there was plenty of room for all to roam and have privacy if needed. The master shower is amazing and I highly recommend using it. The large back decks were perfect for relaxing while feeling the wind and hearing the waves crash. The pool was great and was enjoyed daily by our group. The location of the home also allowed some space on the beach so we never felt like we were being crowded. The under cabinet icemaker did have to be turned off due to a leak that was apparently not reported by prior tenants but we managed by simply buying bagged ice. If you are planning a stay in OIB, I absolutely recommend the Yellow Sub simply will not be disappointed. And to top everything off it helps that the owners are great on communication of any needs or questions. So go ahead and book a stay......and enjoy!

50th anniversary beach week July 15-22, 2017.

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a nicer place to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary with our children and grandchildren. The Yellow Sub exceeded our greatest expectations. Ken and Betty were super to work with. We hope to return here at a future date.
