About Gail Ann Gross

Rick and I were born and raised and still live and love Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Beginning in 1990 we began taking our sons to the Ocean Isle Beach area for our annual beach vacation. Along the way we tried a few other beaches but always returned to Ocean Isle. I particularly like how the beach is fairly level for a good way out into the ocean. Enough waves for the kids to enjoy and the water is so warm spring to fall. We like a beach vacation to focus around the beach and not fighting traffic... Ocean Isle is just a darling beach town and we fell in love with it.

Gail Ann Gross purchased this house in 2003

Why Gail Ann Gross chose Ocean Isle Beach

When we decided to take the jump into beach house ownership, we looked at many houses. When I walked into 143 Ocean Isle West, it took my breath away. Many people have told us they feel it's the prettiest house on the island and of course I have to agree. It is just beautifully crafted to enhance a large family of all ages. And the view from the kitchen, dining, living area is honestly breathtaking.

What makes this house unique

View the sun rise over the ocean... then after dinner gather on the 'sunset deck' to watch the sun set into the inter coastal. Kitchen has seating for 24 so all can be together for a meal. Or sneak up to the crows nest and curl up with a book surrounded by ocean views out every window. Books for kids and adults, arcade quality pac-man and golden Tee games. Fabulous pool and grilling area. Private walkway with gazebo to your little piece of the beach!

Perfect Thanksgiving Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Twenty of us converged here from across the eastern seaboard for a 4-day family reunion. This beautiful home provided ample room for us to visit, cook, dine, and even swim (heated pool) over a long Thanksgiving weekend. While many houses we considered renting provided ample bedroom space, this is one of the very few we found to accommodate all of us comfortably in the dining and living areas of the home. Those common areas also provided the most relaxing panoramic views of the ocean. The deck on the Sound side provides beautiful views as well, and if you're lucky, you may spot a bald eagle while enjoying your morning coffee.

Amazing home and location

  • 5 of 5

The best word to describe this place is "AMAZING". The house is beautiful and has spacious open floor plan. It is ocean front on one side and an inlet on the other side. We had a family reunion at the house on Labor Day weekend and the kids enjoyed the pool and fishing on both sides of the water. The beach is very clean and secluded. My family all complemented me on picking such a perfect house, location and perfect reunion. Again, thank you Gail for sharing your home with us and I will definitely recommend it to all my friends.

Best Beach House Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

You will not be disappointed with this house. It is beautifully decorated, very clean, kitchen is well stocked, and beds are comfortable. There is lots of decking with plenty of tables and chairs to sit in to enjoy the awesome views, sunrises, and sunsets! The pool was clean and a good size and plenty of lounge chairs to soak in the sun. There were 13 of us girls who work together away for a weekend retreat, and this is definitely the place to be to relax and recharge! There is a long table where we could all be together to share in good food, and while enjoying your meal, you are surrounded by lots of window space and sliding door looking out to the magnificent views. The owner is wonderful to work with and was always prompt in responding. You will definitely want to come back once you stay here!!

Premier Beach Home on the. Island!

  • 5 of 5

In a word; WOW! Walk on the beach, look at 143 Ocean Isle Boulevard West, and you will agree -- this is the island's best looking property and best location. It's position on the island's west-end inlet yields spectacular views in every direction with amazing contrasts at high and low tides. Walk 30 yards to get wet at high tide while low tide yields 200 yards of flat beach with tidal pools for kids young and old to splash around in. We saw huge porpoises chasing fish near the inlet - it was amazing. The clean and modern home has incredible deck views and a fantastic pool. My dream girl and I had a small but magical wedding poolside that we and our guests will remember fondly for the rest of our lives. We can't say enough great things about this beautiful beach home.

Wilson Family

  • 5 of 5

My family of 21 had a wonderful stay at OIW 143. The house and location were incredible! There was plenty of beds for everyone. The kitchen was perfect with two large refrigerators. The decks were perfect for watching the kids in the pool or watching people on the beach. There are no words to describe the beautiful views. The house was fully stocked with all our needs and very clean. The house is located fourth from the end of the island which offered plenty of privacy. The kids had a great time in the pool with provided floats. Can't wait to go back!!!
