About the property

2500 sq ft of living space with reverse floorplan and great ocean/waterway views

New Listing! This beautiful third row home has some of the best views on the island. Even though it is third row, there is only one house between you and the ocean. The reverse floor plan allows for stunning views of the ocean and intracoastal waterway. Enjoy a wide beach that was re-nourished in 2014 and is located near the East end of the island.

Enjoy beautiful ocean views as you sit in the living room on the top floor while watching TV on a new 55 inch HDTV. The open floor plan includes the kitchen and dining area that accommodates 10 people at the dining room table with 4 bar stools. The kitchen is fully equipped for the family that chooses to cook. The master bedroom is located just off the living room. With access to the front deck, you can enjoy waterway views or watch the deer that visit daily. After a long day at the beach or golfing, you can relax in the hot tub located on the top deck just outside the living room as you enjoy the ocean views.

The bottom floor has 4 bedrooms, all equipped with tv and cable. Three bedrooms have two full beds in each room. The other bedroom has a queen bed. Each bedroom in this house has a water view.

Huge new Whirlpool Duet front loading washer and dryer are located on the bottom floor.

Private pool with fenced in back yard for those times when you don't want to go to the beach. Equipped with lounge chairs and tables and a gas grill for family cookouts.

About The Owner

I am an insurance agent in Shallotte. My wife and I have lived in Shallotte/Ocean Isle since 1994. We live in this house from September to May with our three children. I have been coming to Ocean Isle Beach since I was a child and I think it's the best beach anywhere around. Very family oriented.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Ocean Isle Beach

This property is one of the few on the island that offers views of the ocean and the waterway. On the front deck, you can see the Ocean Isle Beach bridge all the way east to Shallotte Point. The reverse floor plan and location of this house give you beautiful ocean views not normally found with a third row house. There have been days when we saw schools of dolphins jumping in the ocean and then walk to the front side and see herds of deer. Not too many places on earth to witness that!!

What makes this house unique

The reverse floor plan that offers stunning views and the private pool and large deck space invite you to enjoy this house and this island as it was meant to be. Across the street is a nature trail with boardwalks that wind through the marsh and take you to the end of the island.

Beach views

  • 4 of 5

This was a great house with nice views. We were at Ocean Isles Beach for a family reunion and rented several houses. The living space (nice and open) in this house was perfect for the group dinners. The only down side to this property is that the kitchen was not stocked for so many people. We ended up just using paper plates which made clean up much quicker.

Nice house, good location

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had a great time at the house in Ocean Isle. I chose this house because the amount of beds were perfect and it was a fairly close walk to the beach. The pool is great for afternoons after a day on the beach. I would have liked to have had some seating on the lower deck and also more towel racks in the bathrooms/bedrooms. My dad complained of the water pressure in the top floor master bathroom shower but no one else had complaints about the other bathrooms (maybe he's picky?) The landlords were very nice and quick to fix the wobbling kitchen chairs and also to refill the gas tank for the grill. I'd definitely recommend this house to others. My family may even be back next year!

Great for all ages

  • 5 of 5

Our family with adult children and 2 little grandchildren really enjoyed our week here. The beach is a short walk and very clean. We appreciated having plenty of room to spread out in the sand. The private pool and hot tub were great to have -I don't think we'll ever consider a vacation without them. The house is spacious and well laid out and had everything we needed. The owners were quick to respond from booking to check out. We're happy to recommend this house and would love to return.

Great week at the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Loved this house. It was perfect for our needs. Top deck makes you feel like you are ocean front. Short walk to the beach. We have 2 infants and having the pool for the afternoon while the babies slept was perfect. Pool has a nice shady spot also for those that had enough sun at the beach. House is equipped with everything that you need. Hope to rent this great home again next year!

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

The only negative about this home was that it is not oceanfront but yet has tremendous ocean views. The house is very comfortable and well appointed. Plenty of room to have family time and yet still have the privacy you may need. The pool is a plus that everyone enjoyed and it is only a short trek to the beach. Hot tub is also a plus. The house is situated in such a way that there are ample breezes on the back decks (Oceanside) for those hot days and yet the pool area is protected. Our group of eleven enjoyed this home immensely. I heard no complaints about our stay. Also, the owners were very helpful and responsive to any questions or needs. Don't think anyone wold be disappointed with this home.

Hopefully, we will be able to stay here again.

Vacation Haven

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd time staying at Tanner's Retreat. Every time we come, we immediately feel like we're at our home away from home when we walk in the door. The view from the top deck is incredible as we wake up every morning gazing out at the gorgeous ocean. The pool is delightful after a hot afternoon on the beach. The hot tub is such a nice treat especially to enjoy under the stars at night. The walk from the house to the beach access is less than 5 minutes. The owners are extremely friendly and did a great job keeping the property clean and well maintained. Twin Lakes and Pogies are two of our favorite local restaurants and dessert at Sunset Slush is also a can't miss treat! Our family has made such special memories at this beach house and we look forward to returning in the future.
