Interaction with Guests
We are a retired couple that will respond quickly to your inquiries through email or mobile telephone. We own 2 condos in the same building (4A and 4D), and we live in one of these 2 condos for part of the year. In many cases, we will be available to greet you upon your arrival. For part of the year we will be living in an immediately adjacent condo during your stay - available to answer questions or respond to any issues that may develop. When we are not staying in one of the two condos we are immediately available to respond through telephone or through email throughout your stay.

We are very selective in terms of those we allow to utilize our beach condominiums – because these condominiums are also our home for part of the year. Many of our renters come back to our condominium year after year - some have been renting from us for 10 years or more.
I just retired and my wife and I love this private little beach community which is our home for part of the year. We travel a lot and we want others to be able to experience this unique beach getaway. The first-floor 4A condo is fully renovated with a modern kitchen, large stackable washer and dryer, tiled bathrooms with a walk-in shower, extensive build-ins and this unit requires a higher rent than our top floor 4D condo. The 4D condo (listing # 1096699) is not extensively renovated but it is very nice - and it offers spectacular views from both decks. It is possible to rent both condominium units at the same time - providing access to six bedrooms and four bathrooms comfortably accommodating 12 people. We also rent each of these condos separately. Each of these condos are part of the starboard by the sea complex - the only condominium complex on the island that stretches from the ocean to the intercostal waterway - with extensive amenities that can be enjoyed by our guest. For nine-months out of the year this little beach community is quiet and very private. It feels like our own private beach and our own private community. During the summer months (June, July and August) this little beach community is alive and very active. A great family resort - perfect for young children. We have 7 young grandchildren – that is why we need 2 condos, and we get to see them regularly because they love this place too.
If you like golf this place is like being in heaven - over 50 courses within a 30-mile radius - many are signature courses. If you like excitement, arts, restaurants and entertainment - it is an easy commute to Myrtle Beach and to Wilmington North Carolina. If you like fishing it doesn't get any better than Ocean Isle Beach.
However, our favorite evening gathering place is at the private beachfront deck with rockers overlooking the beach and the ocean – about a five-minute walk from our condos. We love living here - we travel a lot but always look forward to returning to this very unique community.
