The photos you see are taken from our deck. OIB is a wonderful beach vacation!

OIBdream is a typical beach rental, but instead of dealing with a real estate company, you are dealing with me, Paula, the owner. We rent the unit by the week only (Saturday to Saturday) during the high season. That's from about Memorial Day through Labor Day. After that, we are more flexible. Contact me, we'll figure it out, and I'll give you a firm quote. Thanks for checking out our condo at OIBdream!

We require a $200 refundable security and damage deposit (held and returned by VRBO) and a rental agreement (which binds us both).

Check In Time is *after* 4 pm your first day.

Check out time is *before* 10 am your last day.

We have a quick turnover, especially in the summer, so we need every bit of that time between guests.

Families are welcome, but the primary renters must be over 25 years old and must occupy the unit during the rental period.

No Pets are allowed (with apologies to Fido and Ginger; HOA rules - strictly enforced).

No Smoking in unit, in the hallways, or on the deck of the unit.

Linens (sheets and towels) are not provided, so please bring your own or get them while you are here (dollar stores, walmart, rental ...).

There is no washer or dryer inside the unit, but there are some available to the complex located in the building next to the pool. They take quarters.

We have some beach chairs in the unit but no umbrella.

There is *no* land-line phone in the unit. We have a phone that calls out (to other cell or land numbers) that works over the Internet via Skype.

This is a condo in a building of 24 similar units. Our condo is direct ocean front. You can see from the photos that the beach is right outside your door, just steps away. Our unit is on the corner, so you have ocean on two sides! You have a direct view of the ocean from inside the unit (as you can see from the photos).

Our place is on the first floor, but there are some stairs because all dwellings must be above the storm-surge height (i.e., on "stilts"). If you look at the photo of me on the boardwalk, our condo is right next to my head. There is no elevator. There are only two floors to the building.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.

We appreciate your checking out OIBdream. We know you have choices out there, and we appreciate your business!

About paula

We are a working couple in our 50s. We are not a real estate company, and this is the only unit we own. One Thanksgiving we visited my cousin, who has a unit in the same complex, and fell in love with OIB and the condos ... and the rest, as they say, is history.

We know you will treat it as your own and love it as much as we do!

paula purchased this condo in 2012

Why paula chose Southern Coast

It's right on the ocean and it is the perfect size.

What makes this condo unique

On the ocean, on the beach: OIB is a wonderful beach! People are nice, fun, and the shelling is fantastic. It's not hectic like Myrtle, but there is still plenty to do (or not, if you just want to chill and watch the ocean and the stars).

Great place to enjoy the ocean and relax!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at A Place at the Beach! This unit looks directly out at the ocean. We had a bit of rain during the week (3rd week in June) and loved being just yards from the beach so we could head inside and as soon as the weather cleared, we were right back outside! No packing up the car to drive back and forth, etc.

The unit is bright and cheery, clean, and the perfect size for 3-4 guests. When we arrived we felt very welcomed because the air conditioning was running, the unit smelled fresh and clean, so we could just begin to settle right in. The town itself is pretty small and quiet (according to our teenage girls...) but we took a drive to Myrtle Beach (less than an hour away) for some fun activity. We loved being in a quiet, family-friendly location with the option of driving to the more "touristy" locations.

It was wonderful working with Paula to book this vacation spot. She's soooo helpful and willing to go the extra mile to make sure your stay is the best.

We will definitely be back for a return visit!

Paradise at OIB 9/9 - 9/16

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking for a relaxing week on the beach to top off the summer. I am happy to say we just completed a wonderful week at Paula's and Tim's oceanfront condo in Ocean Isle Beach, NC. To start, I want to thank Paula for her concern and willingness to work with us while Hurricane Irma was wreaking havoc on the Southeast. She was most hospitable and provided the latest information on the storm and our options in case we had to alter plans. Most accommodating! The entire process from booking, throughout our stay, to checkout was easy with Paula. She treated us like old friends.

The condo itself is very cheerful with natural light from windows on two sides of the unit, along with a direct view of the ocean and beach that is to die for! The condo layout has a master bedroom (with a small bathroom) at one end and a second bedroom at the other end allowing privacy for guests. A second bathroom is situated between the two bedrooms. A full kitchen with dining area and living room leading to the oceanfront balcony run parallel to the bedrooms. We started each day on the balcony with our morning coffee watching pelicans flying along the water's edge and ended everyday on that balcony with our favorite adult beverage.

The proximity of the condo in the complex couldn't be better, being just steps from the parking lot, the pool and beach access. We found that to be most convenient while still providing the privacy we desired.

The Ocean Isle Beach locale is a quiet, well maintained beach town with several good restaurants/bars (tiki bars!) ice cream, pizza, etc. A Lowes grocery store is just across the causeway on the mainland in an easy to access shopping center. The town is within an easy drive of restaurants and shopping in Calabash (20 mins) Myrtle Beach and Southport (less than an hour). There are quite a few antique and consignment shops nearby as well.

This was our third trip to Ocean Isle Beach and the first time we stayed a Paula's "OIB Dream" condo. I think my wife and I found our getaway place. We are looking forward to our next booking.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using VRBO; and working with Paula was great! You could not ask for a better place. Just steps away from the beach and pool and since I have issues with my feet it was a blessing. We looked for shells everyday and found some great pieces. We really enjoyed staying a whole week this time ! Thanks again Paula!

A wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

After a very long drive from Wash. DC (11 hours), we were thrilled to arrive at Paula's condo. We spent the first hour or so with a bottle of wine and two glasses, just as pictured. The condo was just as advertised, clean, stocked with all kitchen essentials. We spent the mornings walking on the beach and swimming in the condo pool. Afternoons, we used to explore the area -- Southport, Myrtle Beach, Sunset beach and Wilmington. The July 4th fireworks were wonderful on Ocean Isle -- they actually have their display on July 3rd evening. We cooked in the condo 3 nights and went out to eat 4 nights. If you get a chance, I highly recommend the Flying Fish Cafe on Oak Island. Great food, first rate service and you cannot possibly get closer to the water. Definitely a vacation and a condo stay worth repeating.
