Why Ellen Arabea chose Ocean Isle Beach

We have been coming to Ocean Isle for decades for family vacations! We first started coming for the beach, but over time, we began to enjoy the natural beauty of the waterway. We are just thrilled that, after many years of kayaking past the beautiful Island Park waterfront cottages, we have our own Island Park home. We feel fortunate to be able to share our property with our family and friends for many years to come.

Wonderful stay for Spring Break with our family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this beautiful home. The views were absolutely stunning and the house had everything we needed. Ellen was a delight to work with. Our kids loved fishing off the dock, kayaking and swimming in the neighborhood pool. The walk to the beach was short and convenient too. We had a great time and hope to be back soon. Thank you!

Wonderful house and location!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. It was well taken care of, very comfortable and wonderful location. By far one of the best vacation homes I have rented. When the tide goes out, this house still has water around the dock, a lot of the houses didn't. The kids loved fishing and kayaking right from our own dock. It is a short walk to the beach and the pools. The beach where the public access is was very nice. It was not crowded, clean and the sand was soft. We walked down the beach searching for shells and the beach gets much rougher farther down, so I was very happy with our little section. I loved watching all the wild life from the deck while drinking my coffee in the morning. The deck is really special at night. We saw some amazing storms and lightning and just the wild life in general was awesome. If you fish, watch out for those fish stealing cranes, LOL! They are not shy and don't care that the hook is still attached; nor does a shrieking woman waving a fishing rods around scare them away. The kids also loved low tide and seeing all the crabs and critters revealed and the fish just jumping right out of the water. The kitchen had everything we needed in it to cook meals. I think the only thing we had an issue with was the grill. I guess it was a home to some big bugs hiding, but my husband was no match for them, lol! We love the house and were sad to leave. The home owners are wonderful and very responsive. Thank you again for allowing us to stay in your wonderful home and create so many wonderful memories.

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We love OIB and this house was perfect for our family! Easy walk to the beach and the private dock on the sound side made it our best vacation in OIB yet. The house was beautifully decorated, clean and ready for us when we arrived. We enjoyed fishing off the dock, kayaking and paddle-boarding on the sound, and cooking on the grill while enjoying the gorgeous sunsets each night!

The home was well decorated, comfortable and very clean! We enjoyed the easy access to the ocean and pools but especially enjoyed being on the sound side with the views and water activities. The owner provided the perfect vacation home and we hope to return.

Nothing short of FABULOUS

  • 5 of 5

This house is wonderful. It is very clean and well maintained, and the owners have just about any type of kitchen item you might need. The washer and dryer were clean and worked great. This is a huge plus when staying for a week with family. We enjoyed fishing on the dock, watching kayakers go by, and seeing the numerous types of birds that inhabited the area. The sunsets are beautiful from the back deck. In the heat of the day it was wonderful to sit under the house where it was much cooler. We would all hang out at the bar under the house and laugh and talk about our day. The outdoor shower was great. I really didn't think we would use but we sure did! Cleaning off from the beach/pool was so easy. The two community pools are well maintained. At times it would get a little busy but nothing like staying in a condo in Myrtle Beach. Most of the time, though, there were only a few families in the pool at a time. A handful of times we were the only family in it. Cannot beat that! Both the pool and beach are an easy walk. The sand on the beach is beautiful. There were shells to be found.

Ocean Isle Beach is 100 times better than vacationing in Myrtle Beach and we thought we loved Myrtle Beach. OIB is a great family island--the beach is beautiful, the waves were fine for my 6 and 10 year old to manage, the people are friendly and there are plenty of places to eat and explore. OIB even has the Eagle Store and Tsunami's for your souvenier needs or items you might need for the beach. The island does not have condos one right after the other, they have cared-for homes which is a huge difference then MB.

We will, hands down, rent this home again. The owners were wonderful to work with and very accommodating. Ellen is always quick to reply. Thank you for letting us enjoy your beautiful home! We cannot think of one thing that could be different or that we would want to change.

Great family location!!

  • 5 of 5

We have a family with 4 teens and this house was perfect. It's right off a canal and provided an escape for our son from his three sisters who did not want to fish or kayak (their loss). It's a short walk to the beach and an even shorter walk to two pools.

Ellen was awesome to work with and went out of her way to offer suggestions on fishing guides and top eateries.

We had a great time!
