About the property

Oceanfront 4 BR, 4 bath condo with private balcony and expansive views

Welcome to your oceanfront private retreat in this prime corner condominium 'Salem by the Sea' Windjammer 2P! The panorama is breathtaking from the great room as two sliding glass doorways open to the oceanfront balcony while expansive windows look toward the west end of the island. With the full meaning of “complete peace,” Salem by the Sea is a slice of heaven at Ocean Isle Beach, NC.

The balcony has been described as 'the best balcony on the beach' by knowledgeable locals. With 30 feet of private oceanfront corner terrace, you can enjoy the ebb and flow of the surf and watch for passing wildlife. Enjoy the idyllic 180 degree ocean view from sunrise to sunset. The ocean view continues on the west side of the condo from the dining room and kitchen to 3 of the bedrooms.

This haven was thoroughly remodeled in winter and fall of 2014 with annual upgrades since, including granite countertops and new kitchen cabinets and appliances, inviting beach décor, and 5 cable HDTVs. The kitchen is fully equipped with lots of extra amenities to help you feel right at home.

The living room has a 48' smart TV with DVD player. Bedroom #1 'Seaside' has a king bed, large bathroom with jetted tub, 32' smart TV and ocean view. 'Lighthouse' is Bedroom #2 with two queen beds, bathroom, 32' TV and ocean view. Bedroom #3 'Sea Creatures' has two double beds and a 28' TV with DVD, small VHS TV stored in the closet, bathroom and ocean view. The 'Waterway' Bedroom #4 has one queen bed and one full size futon, bathroom and 28' TV with DVD.

The Windjammer offers elevator access, Wi-Fi, ramped access to the beach observation deck, and then steps down to the beach. Enjoy the warm waters of this family friendly beach and be sure to take the short walk to the west end of the island at Tubbs Inlet for shelling and fishing or the longer walk to the pier mid-island. Alternatively, the large community pool with sundecks, palm trees and adjacent grilling area on the waterway side of the building is another delightful spot.

Ocean Isle Beach is a wonderful family friendly island that boasts a coastal museum, turtle nesting program, mini golf and watersports on the ocean and waterway of the island. This is a golfer’s delight with dozens of beautiful nearby golf courses. There are numerous shopping and fabulous dining opportunities, including the seafood capital of the world, Calabash NC less than 15 minutes away. Of course staying at the condo and relaxing, listening to the rhythm of the waves is balm for the soul.

Welcome to your home away from home oceanfront paradise, 'Salem by the Sea!'

About McClure Realty Vacations

Salem by the Sea is owned by the Price Foster family. We grew up in Winston-Salem, NC where our mother still lives, now with grown children and their families in the Atlanta area as well as Fort Collins, Colorado. Our father is now in nursing care near Ocean Isle.

We love maintaining our special roots with home in Ocean Isle Beach, returning frequently for the healing waters of the warm ocean, long beach walks, and fun games and activities on the beach. We have our favorite restaurants and shops that we frequent, with Calabash seafood (Ella's and the Seafood Hut) and the Causeway Gourmet being favorites.

McClure Realty Vacations purchased this condo in 2014

Why McClure Realty Vacations chose Southern Coast

Our family has had a very special relationship with Ocean Isle Beach for about 50 years. In the beginning we would rent the same house every summer, sometimes with other families joining us in adjacent homes. It was a magical setting for wonderful childhood memories of learning to bodysurf, shelling, fishing, and family beach games like foursquare and flying kites.

About 30 years ago our family purchased a condo and then became more enthralled with enjoying this fabulous island in the off season as well as summer. We found the shoulder seasons to still have wonderful days and warm water for swimming and walking on the beach. The fishing was great and we loved the mild temperatures and quiet days with fewer people. When our father retired about 15 years ago, he became a permanent resident here on the island and our love for the beach deepened.

In 2014 we had the opportunity to consider purchasing a different condo, and with our long history here we knew the best places to consider. We choose Windjammer due to its perfect location on the west end of the island, sturdy construction, and especially the spectacular views. We now wanted elevator access to accommodate both our aging parents as well as lugging lots of gear for young children.

We have enjoyed making Salem by the Sea our special retreat with all the amenities of home and look forward to sharing this extraordinary haven with you.

What a wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

I just came home from our long weekend at the Windjammer - what a wonderful retreat this condo is! I was in town for a close friend's wedding just two doors down. There were 8 of us in total, including 2 kids - and there was plenty of room. The rooms are nicely appointed and each have their own bathroom. The kitchen is well equipped, and we had fun cooking breakfast there each day. The outside deck looks right out to the beach. The first night, I set my alarm to see the sunrise, and when I saw how amazing it was going to look from the deck, I ran downstairs - and in less than two minutes I was on the sand with my feet in the water - taking the most incredible, breathtaking photos of the sunrise. Then at night, the darkness gave way to thousands of stars in the sky.

We had some trouble figuring out the TVs,and the wifi was intermittent - but honestly when this close to a beautiful, peaceful shoreline - who wants to watch TV? Once we found the binder of information in the living room, we figured out how to work the TVs. It's a nice touch that the TV in the living room is a smart TV, as the kids were able to watch Netflix. The wifi was a bit of an issue, but that gave us reason to get them outside and back on the beach!

All in all, a truly wonderful weekend with the best of family and some great friends. I am already checking my calendar to see when we can come back.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write these helpful comments and about your experience at Salem By The Sea. I loved hearing your description of the sunrises and night sky! I am sorry the Wi-Fi was intermittent for you, but I am glad that you found the "technology cheat sheet" helpful. Actually later this month the building is replacing wiring and routing boxes for the Internet Connection. The oceanfront location is fabulous in so many ways, but very hard and corrosive on wiring. We are certainly hoping that this will make a much more reliable and consistent Internet connection. I am happy that you will be returning, and hope you can build many wonderful memories. Kathryn, Salem By The Sea Windjammer 2P

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo. Everything was fresh and clean. So cheerful. Well-equipped with cutlery, dishes and the like. We liked that the bedrooms were on the back of the condo, far away from the "action" in the living area. And we especially loved the long deep porch.

Many thanks. We will be back.

A secluded, private beach home experience with plenty of space.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a few days on New Years Eve on the pristine beaches of Ocean Isle. We had an expansive condo with numerous beds and enough space to relax and listen to the waves. An unseasonably 70 degrees allowed us to open the doors, and enjoy walking on the beach with little more than jeans and a t-shirt. We slept on the king sized bed, which again was more than enough space for two. Also available is a Jacuzzi that we did not use at the time. Also there were more than enough items to do from reading the books that were available, to puzzles and we also found a new board game that we even purchased for our use at home.

The best items for the location was the ability to get our groceries, and use the full kitchen to cook dinner every night. Though we did have excellent recommendations to the Causeway cafe (which we did take an opportunity to eat a good meal) it was even better to have the ability to eat as we like to at home. We had plenty of wine and even more a relaxing time. I wish we were able to spend a few more days, and we will definitely go back soon. Why not go to somewhere that feels like home?

Happy Beachcomber

  • 5 of 5

The time we spent at Windjammer was phenomenal. This may be our favorite beach stay ever. Great beach town with wonderful residents and merchants and great other guests that we met during our visit. The condo was clean, very adequately stocked for dishes, even nominal use of spices (nice touch). Loved the choice of whirlpool tub and shower. Bathrooms/rooms all decorated uniquely and with themes. Fun - great balcony, many meals eaten there. Exquisite sunrise views and easy access to the beach. Loved the outdoor showers to clean off before coming up to the unit, made it easier to keep things clean (less sandy). Elevator made loading/unloading very smooth and easy. Highly recommended for unforgettable, enjoyable getaway/vacation.

Great condo...not so great realty co.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderful in the condo and the owners have been very considerate by offering the use of condiments in case the renters run out or have forgotten. The condo is beautifully decorated and has ample dishes, etc. It was very comfortable. I highly recommend it! My only complete is not with the condo or the owner but with the realty company that handles the rental When we booked, I was not careful enough when it came to cancellation insurance - which I never purchase. Whereas most forms have you check if you want something, this one had you check if you don't want the insurance. When I realized the mistake I made in not checking the box, I called McClure Realty and was told that nothing could be done.

Owner's Response: Hello Cheryl, I am very happy that the condo was wonderful for you and that you would recommend it! I am sorry to hear about the difficulty with the cancellation insurance. I spoke with the realty company and went through their procedures with them. They will make written and verbal effort to be sure the procedure is very clear and also that renters have the opportunity to change their decision if the timing of the request allows for that. We hope you can visit our special Salem by the Sea again! Kathryn
