My Happy Place!

  • 5 of 5

My two sisters and I leased My Happy Place for ourselves, our spouses, children and grandchildren. It was perfect for 9 adults and 4 children under the age of two. The house had everything we needed, even books and games for the children and toys for the beach and pool. The kitchen had more dishes and utensils than I have ever encountered in a rental. The upstairs deck faces the ocean and has a beautiful view particularly in the morning. The owners paid a lot of attention to detail with nice touches in counter tops, elevator and flooring. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a great week with family and friends.

Making memories at My Happy Place

  • 5 of 5

Back for the second year in a row, we are already looking forward to renting the new house and already wondering what the name will be! We love love love MHP and Eric and Darren. The personal service is outstanding. We felt quite at home being repeat renters. Being on the backside and sometimes running to the frontside we enjoy each and every sunset. The pool is always a hit and has spoiled us tremendously. My children and I have spent time on OIB since the early 1980's and it touches my heart to be bringing in law children and four grands to enjoy it as well. Thanks for making it such a perfect memory because in the end that is what it is all about: memories!!

We found OUR Happy Place!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to My Happy Place,following three wonderful summer vacations at its sister property next door (Paradise Found). Even though the properties are nearly identical, we found My Happy Place better suited our group of 10 adults and 4 kids (ages 9, 10, 11, and 18) with the built-in bunks (which the younger kids absolutely LOVED), the extra full-size refrigerator (no more need for extra coolers and daily ice purchases to keep drinks cold), and additional full bath (really important for us old folks to have private facilities). Everything about the house was absolutely perfect, from the beautiful furnishings to the sparkling pool to the great ocean views and easy beach access. But what keeps us coming back year after year (we're already booked for our 5th visit next summer) is the outstanding customer service provided by the owners, Eric and Darren, who continue to respond quickly and efficiently to every question. Whether you choose My Happy Place, Paradise Found, or their yet-to-be-named new house which will make its debut in 2018, you will not be disappointed. After more than 20 years of vacationing at Ocean Isle Beach, we've definitely found OUR Happy Place!!

The Perfect Beach/Yoga Experience

  • 5 of 5

We recently held a Women's Yoga Retreat and stayed at this beautiful house. It was a great experiences from beginning to end. The house is beautifully decorated with lots of amenities. Super close to public beach access with amazing views of the ocean and the intercoastal waterway. The owners were an absolute joy to work with! I highly recommend staying here. We will be back and hopefully soon!

The Best of the Best

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to OIB for over 40 years, ever since I myself was a child. For the last 3 years we have been blessed to have stayed at Paradise Found or My Happy Place. This past year (2016) we stayed in My Happy Place and my sister stayed in Paradise Found. We have found both homes to be beyond our expectations. In our home this past July we had our children and their families so ages ranged from 6 months to 54 years old and this home accommodated us all comfortably and was just as well appointed as Paradise Found. We highly recommend if you want an exceptional home with exceptional owner interaction you want to rent Paradise Found or My Happy Place. It truly is the Best of the Best that OIB has to offer.

Owner's Response: Thanks for this fantastic review! As a multiple return family who has been coming to OID for 40 years, your words have special meaning. We work so hard to ensure all our guests have the family vacation of a lifetime and when guests such as yourselves return to us over and over again, it tells us that we've gotten the formula right! Helping wonderful families make lasting memories makes us happy beyond words... our doors are always open to you and your family and we hope to have you back with us sometime soon.
