This property is owner managed and maintained. Since you will be dealing directly with the owner and not a rental management company agent, you can be assured of receiving the very best personal attention. This house is our personal getaway that we open up to share with the public.

Family Fun:

If you have been to Ocean Isle Beach, then you don't need to sold on what a perfect family paradise this area is. Its been well know to Carolinians for decades and the more time goes on the more national and international regard this island gets. So with that being said let me tell you about the perfect vacation rental property awaits your family and friends. This canal home property is on a direct beach access street. Just minutes walk or seconds drive and you are on the beach enjoying a fun day in the sun on wide, clean uncrowded beaches. The water is warm May through October and very clean. Swim in the surf, sunbathe, play beach games, build sandcastles, stroll the beach looking for shells, try surf fishing, the fun activities are many. We have beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers for lounging on the beach. When you get back from a fun day at the beach, rinse off the sand in the house’s outdoor hot shower.

Kayak or swim in the canal system behind the house. The water is clean and refreshing. There is a swim ladder on the dock for easy access.

Bring your boat or Jet Ski and dock it on the private deep water canal behind the house. For boaters the house has a great nautical location, located one minute from the Inter Coastal Waterway and 10 minutes from open water.

Private pilots bring your plane. Fly into OIB's own airport just a 5 minute drive from the house. Car service is available from the airport.

Sleeping Accommodations:

With a total of 2708sqf of living space you wont feel cramped as with some other vacation rentals that crowd as many beds into a space as possible. There are 4 large, tastefully decorated, bedrooms spaced far apart for privacy. A bonus 'Carolina' room provides additional sleeping for two.

The bed configuration is:

Master BR1 -Located on the 2nd floor, One King size bed, private bathroom with dual vanities and a HUGE walk in shower (5'x5' with dual shower heads).

There is plenty of seating in the large dining area with additional seating at the kitchen breakfast bar and you can't beat outdoor dining on the deck.

There are games galore for the family to enjoy. For the Kids (or the young at heart) there is the 'Carolina' room, a bonus room area set up for fun, far enough away for privacy from adults but within earshot of watchful parents.

About Jim

Our family are all North Carolina natives, (with the addition of two treasured transplants) so its suitable we are able to call one of the Carolinas' best beaches our second home. Our family is made up of everything from Health Care professionals and Carpenters, to Teachers and Musicians. We were raised by the golden rule and try to raise the next generation with that same spirit. We've bonded and shared many laughs, conversations, and a few tears in this home. After all 'You can have all of life's treasures, they are fine and they are good, they remind me that houses, are just made of wood, what makes a house grand, ain't the roof or the doors, if there's love in a house, its a palace for sure'.

Jim purchased this house in 1987

Why Jim chose Southern Coast

This home and our family are only are a small part of Ocean Isle but Ocean Isle is a big part of us. We first starting visiting Ocean Isle because family living in the area. There is a lot of sentimentality for us all in the area and that plays a big role but we love the area, its a perfect family beach far away from it all to be able to relax and truly get away, but close enough to enjoy conveniences such as grocery stores and luxuries such as some of the most fantastic restaurants you'll ever dine at. For most residences of the Carolinas' Mountains and Piedmont there isn't a shorter drive then to Ocean Isle too. Bottom line is its far enough away from the hustle and grime of larger coastal cities but is in itself part of a very special group of small coastal communities.

What makes this house unique

Our home has an Elevator that goes to all three stories. That it a huge plus on the island due to every house having 1-3 flights of stairs to climb. Its obvious the luxury that this is for the elderly or those with knee or back problems but even for the average vacation goer its a HUGE plus. When you have kids, luggage, grocery etc its an unbelievable convenience. The location of this home is perfect. Being on a canal and having a dock allows guest to bring or rent a boat and have it docked right in the back. nothing like just putting the key in the ignition and boating wherever and whenever you like. The canal added to the beach being within walking distance makes it the best spot not only on Ocean Isle but out of ANY of the southern barrier islands of North Carolina. Our home also is not set up for maximum sleeping capacity, its set up for maximum enjoyment of our guests. We have TWO master suites with each a huge private bathroom. Each of the two remaining bedrooms have two beds each but are not cramped. Add to all of this our philosophy with this home is to have everything you need for the beach already there. No packing up everyone's bike, boogie board, beach chairs etc. No trips to Wings or Waves that puts a dent in your wallet each trip for things you may only use once or twice a year. Just pack your luggage, put the kids in the car and make the short drive. Also our home is set up with families in mind with a fenced back yard, kayaks, bikes, fishing poles, and plenty of activities to keep the kids occupied or to enjoy together. This home had been maintained and treated with respect; not beat on and abused as many other rentals have. We take care of our home and our vacationing visitors and guest through VRBO have noticed this and we are lucky to have them respect for their own, and future guests' enjoyment. We certainly hope you choose to join our 'extended family' as a guest, and make as many great memories as we, and many other guest have over the years!

Our trip to Ocean Isle Beach was wonderful. We loved the house and there was so much to do. we spend our time Fishing, Crabbing, Kayaking and biking. The walk to the beach was nice and we enjoyed the beach. This house has everything a family needs and such a quiet neighborhood. Loved this place and hope to rent again.

Super relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Ocean Isle. The house had everything- bikes, Kayaks, corn hole and plenty of room. My 83 year father appreciated the elevator and the handicapped shower in one of the master suites.

We did rent a golf cart to take to the beach- I suggest others to do this as well and to rent early as they tend to sell out. The only negative was that the DVD player did not work properly in the downstairs TV- but we are not big TV people so it was discovered a little later when my son came for part of the week. He was able to watch his movie in the upstairs room with no difficulty. House had everything for a great vacation!

Excellent home

  • 5 of 5

This home was an excellent choice for our stay at OIB. It was very clean and had plenty of room. The downstairs garage was great with a foosball table, bikes, boogie boards, and a wagon for hauling to the beach. It was also nice having an elevator and a fenced in backyard since we had little kids there. We really enjoyed our stay. Thanks!

Great time at OIB

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this home! It was quiet through the wind and rain of Hurricane Arthur on the 3rd - we only heard occasional gusts of rain hitting the skylights. There were 11 of us staying. The house was clean, other than finding a part of someone's apple turnover under an upstairs bed the day we arrived. The grass didn't get mowed this week, but it wasn't an issue for us. Great downstairs garage/storage/work room that can be opened from both ends for plenty of breeze. Great extras - kayaks, bikes, boogie boards, and good wagon for hauling to the beach. The children loved the foosball table. We loved the well equipped kitchen and the elevator! One great extra was the fabulous 4th of July parade! That was a lot of fun with decorated golf carts, people, bikes and vehicles - we loved it! Those folks really know how to have a good time! Thanks for the memories!
