There is a second bedroom with a full bed, wall-mounted flat screen TV, and deck w/ sound views. Also on this floor, you'll find a third bedroom with 2 sets of bunk beds. This room has a flat screen TV with a private deck and sound views. All four bedrooms have sliding glass/ screen doors so that any guest can enjoy the sounds of the ocean waves. A hall bathroom featuring a shower/tub, and a full size, high efficiency washer and dryer are also featured on this level.

We have taken the time to make this home beautiful, comfortable, clean and family friendly, so that your vacation can be relaxing with all of the comforts of home.

We have a child who is hyper sensitive to pet dander. Because of this, we do not allow pets.

About Todd and Julie Scott

We live and work in Raleigh and are fortunate to have four beautiful children. Both of us have fond childhood memories of trips to the island, but became reacquainted with the island 5 years ago while vacationing w/ friends.

Todd and Julie Scott purchased this house in 2014

Why Todd and Julie Scott chose Ocean City Beach

If you love the beach we're confident you'll enjoy your time whether it's lounging on the beach, watching sunrises or sunsets from the decks of the house, or relaxing in the comfort of our beach cottage.

What makes this house unique

There is a community swimming pool just steps away and the ocean views are some of the best on the island. The wainscoating throughout the main level provides a true beach cottage experience you'll remember forever.

Great location with beautiful views of both the ocean and the sound!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived on Christmas Day, the house was nicely decorated, very clean and offered wonderful amenities. The elevator was a great help for our luggage, groceries and the grandparents!!

We were able to cook wonderful meals in the spacious, well appointed kitchen. We had plenty of beds for the family. It was a very nice place to spend Christmas through New Years!

Although the weather wasn’t what we had hoped (it is always unpredictable in NC in December) we were able to enjoy playing games, watching movies and the occasional walk over to the beach. The decks were perfect for viewing the dolphins swimming in the surf!

Last minute booking---

  • 5 of 5

Stop looking at other houses, you are wasting your time! :) This place is exceptional--- beach and ocean views, outdoor shower, wide open kitchen and family area, ideal layout--- oh, and there is an ELEVATOR--- yea, I used the stairs once in 4 days and I was not happy about it--- my sister had her kids passed out in her arms after dinner so I yielded. :) No complaints, no issues, no challenges, no "Well I wish the house had..."...NADA, book it, stop reading this! :)

Customer service? A+--- I emailed the owner 14 hours before I was planning to leave for NC, he responded and took the time to call me despite being 930pm and it was booked. I did not have to wait 24 hours for a reply and didnt get some automated BS email from an agent.

Seriously--- book this house before I re-book it for my next trip. :)

Lovely home, great beach

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautifully decorated home, just a very short walk to the beach. The owners were fantastic to work with. Only suggestion I would make is that renters need to know beach chairs and umbrellas are not provided. It wasn’t until our second day that we found a brochure where we could rent these items from. The company delivered them shortly after we ordered them. It truly was a great vacation!

Wonderful family beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house to join in a family reunion with cousins. I had never been to North Carolina before: what beautiful, beautiful beaches!

Sea Salt was a perfect location for our family of seven. We grandparents were very happy with the master bedroom on the top floor and the grandsons were very happy with the bunk beds on their level. The beds were all extremely comfortable, the smart TV was enjoyed and the views of thunderstorms from the decks were awesome.

Great location and terrific home

  • 5 of 5

My family (including parents and brother's family) just had one of the nicest vacations yet. The house was immaculate. It had everything we needed, and was so close to the beach that our kids were begging to stay forever. If we didn't have to be real adults we would stay all summer.

Always enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

We just enjoyed a return visit to this home. There isn't anything more we can say that hasn't already been said in earlier reviews. The home is everything you see in the pictures and countless memories (relaxed or active) can be made here. It's just a place you want to go back to - and we do. Thanks T&J for everything.
