About Lynne Brown

Hello guests, My name is David Horne. I live in Wilmington, NC where I was born and raised. I own a carpet cleaning company that has been in business for 40 years. I co-own this property with Debra Horne. She and her spouse, Michael. live in Virginia. Debra is a retired elementary school guidance counselor. Debra and I have 2 children, Zachary and Stephen. Zach is married to Heather, and they have 2 children, Annabelle and Sawyer. I am known as "Pop", to my grandchildren.

Lynne Brown purchased this condo in 2003

Why Lynne Brown chose Southern Coast

The location of my condo is perfect. Only steps away from the public access to the beach.

Even though I live within minutes of Wrightsville Beach and Carolina Beach, they do not compare to Ocean Isle Beach.

Our porch overlooks the pond, where you will see turtles swimming and sunbathing. They love it when you throw them a few crumbs. My granddaughter, Annabelle, looks forward to this part of her stay at the condo. When I'm here, I am so relaxed and stress free. A bicycle ride to the west end of the beach is always a relaxing activity for me.

There is nothing better than and early morning or evening walk on the beach. Or take your chairs and sit by the water as the sun goes down. Breath taking!

What makes this condo unique

Ocean Isle is a golfer's paradise with world famous courses, twelve within 10 miles. Enjoy charming shops and wonderful restaurants within minutes of the condo. If you don't want to venture too far for lunch or dinner, enjoy the Giggling Mackerel overlooking the inland waterway, Sharky's on the canal or Cinellie's overlooking the waterway and with live music to boot. Want to stay at home but don't want to cook, order from Causeway Gourmet and they will deliver it right to your door. Just a short drive to Calabash , the Seafood Capital of the south. Or Myrtle Beach is just 25 minutes away where you will find more golf courses than you can play, numerous restaurants, specialty shops, outlet malls and numerous attractions.

Multitudes of activities. Swimming in ocean/pool, bicycling, kayaking, hunting for shells, sunbathing, tennis, golfing, consigning, antiques. Sitting on the porch with a good book. Whatever your pleasure is, you're sure to find it at Ocean Isle Beach!

Great condo!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our visit to OIB! Starboard By The Sea is the perfect location...short walk to both the beach AND the intercoastal waterway. The condo is tastefully decorated and has very comfortable beds! Only a couple of complaints: 1) we had to kill four roaches during our week there and 2) AC did not cool bedrooms effectively Living areas stayed cool while bedrooms required fans to be comfortable. With that said, we had a great time & will return to OIB!

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear that there was a problem with the air conditioning. We will have it checked out. Wish you had contacted me. No excuse for the roaches except the excessive rain that week must have driven them inside. Sincerely, Lynne B Brown~

My husband and I celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary here and everything from beginning to end was perfect. The condo was fabulous, very clean and had everything we needed. Very close to the ocean, maybe a 2 minute walk. The owner was wonderful to work with and responded promptly to any questions. Would highly recommend this condo and its owner for a wonderful vacation!!!!

clean property, great location, convenient end unit to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying here for a week during the month of July. The beaches here are beautiful and full of sea shells! And if you're looking for things to do check out Calabash and Myrtle Beach. This place is definitely going down as one of my favorites. We hope to stay here again in the future.
