Featured on HGTV's - Beach Front Bargain Hunt (episode 1108)! Sandwitches Cottage is a classic shotgun style Carolina beach cottage featuring 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths. Each side of the cottage has a Queen bedroom and a Kids bedroom... complete with twin bunk beds and a full size bed. A Jack-and-Jill bathroom connects both bedrooms on either side of the house. All 4 bedrooms have flat screen TV's (wall mounted in queen bedrooms), new beds, new mattresses, and new carpeting.

About Michael and Margaret Bartholomew

My husband Mike is a firefighter and I am an elementary school teacher. We have 3 beautiful girls...Kaitlyn and Madelyn are 14 and Victoria is 10. Our lives are busy and our schedules hectic! We live in New York, 50 minutes north of NYC. Although we are a short distance from the big city (and love taking advantage of the proximity!) our home is adjacent to a 14,000+ acre state park. We enjoy the outdoors and spend weekends checking out the many hiking trails in our backyard! We get to experience the best of both worlds...the scenic country setting of our home in the northeast and the beautiful tranquil setting of our home away from home in Ocean Isle Beach! We jump at the chance to visit and with our work schedules we are so fortunate to be able to spend the amount of time that we do in OIB! Sandwitches' Cottage is much more than a vacation rental, it is our family vacation home and we are happy to share it with your family!

Michael and Margaret Bartholomew purchased this house in 2015

Why Michael and Margaret Bartholomew chose Ocean Isle Beach

We started visiting the North Carolina beaches when our girls were toddlers. We immediately fell in love with the state and wanted to explore all that the coast had to offer! We started in Corolla and over the years have slowly worked our way down toward the border, visiting EVERY beach in NC! Finally, In 2015 we decided to take the leap and find our own little beach paradise! We were nearing the end of the state but nothing jumped out at us or felt "right". Feeling a little discouraged, we looked at the map and Ocean Isle Beach was next on our list... the second to last beach in NC. I remember going over the Ocean Isle Beach Bridge for the very first time and smiling...the view from the top was unlike any other, it was absolutely beautiful! This adventure felt different, it felt right! We found the perfect it was time to find the perfect beach home for our family! Sandwitches' Cottage was and is that special place. It felt like home from the moment we walked through the door. We are so fortunate to be able to spend holidays, school breaks and a few lazy summer weeks each year in OIB! The memories that we have made are priceless. We found our "home away from home"...Our Happy Place!

What makes this house unique

The ocean view! When searching for the perfect place, our number one criteria was that it had to have an ocean view (and close beach acess!). Since we planned on spending a lot of family time in OIB, I needed to be able to look out the window or sit on the front porch (enjoying my morning coffee or evening cocktail :) and enjoy the beautiful view of the Atlantic! We also wanted Sandwitches' Cottage to be a place that our 3 girls would want to spend a lot of time at as they grow older. It is the perfect location...we walk everywhere and only use the car when we go off the island! The decor is beachy and makes you feel relaxed and happy! We extended the living space to the outside by incorporating a fun game area under the house for kids and adults to enjoy!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner


Carl asked me to let you know that this was the trip of a life time for his farm employees! One of the ladies had never been to the beach. They loved the house (they called upon arriving and raved about how nice the house is) and told Carl they "left everything as they found it." Thank you again for being so accommodating.

Perfect Beach Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Sandwitches Cottage! The house was very clean, updated, well decorated and comfortable. We spent many mornings and evenings out on the front porch on the rocking chairs and in the hammocks down below. We stayed near another family with beach access so it was an easy stroll across the street and we were right at the ocean. It was also an easy walk down to the coffee shop, gift shops and restaurants (Drift Coffee and Coastal Wine Room were a couple of our favorites). The owners were very helpful and extremely responsive- even texting us one day to let us know about a riptide warning. They definitely made us feel like welcome guests, and we’d recommend this house to anyone planning a trip to OIB!

Wow! What an amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

The home was so charming. And most importantly very clean. The decor had the perfect beachy touch. We had everything we needed in the kitchen. The kids even had their own dishes! We all LOVED the outdoor area. The shuffle board and corn hole were big hits! We all enjoyed relaxing in the hammocks as well. Margaret and Michael made our experience perfect. They checked on us when we arrived to make sure we had everything we needed. Thank you so much for the lifetime memories we created!

Cozy and charming beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home is very inviting and an excellent place to relax at the beach. The inside and outside play area is nicely furnished and up to date. It's a perfect space for sharing with another family. Close to the beach and to the Ocean Isle restaurants/activities too.

A perfectly adorable cozy CLEAN beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is so cute and clean!!! We stayed here with our kids, our friends and our friends kids, so there were 4 adults and 4 kids and although it was cozy, we all had plenty of room. The amazing outdoor area was like another living space and the kids hung out there most of the time when we weren't at the beach. The decor and overall look of the place was just so perfect! We loved staying here. The only thing that we didn't like was that the beach access was about 5 houses down, so we had to lug our stuff there, but it really wasn't that big of a deal. I highly recommend Sandwitches Cottage!
