About this Property

  • Sleeps 20
  • 8 Bedrooms
  • 7 Bathrooms
  • Private vacation home

Work or do school remotely with secure reliable WiFi powered by 1-Gig fiber internet.
1-Gig fiber optic Internet via an Orbi mesh WiFi router system delivers reliable hi-speed WiFi throughout the home so you can stay connected. Parents can work remotely, and kids can participate in distance learning with plenty of bandwidth for everybody.
The main living room has a 70-inch TV and the 2nd floor living room has a 55-inch TV. All 8 bedrooms have 55 or 42 inch flat screen intelligent HD TVs. The elevator goes from the ground level to the top floor (not the case in all homes with elevators). There are ceiling fans throughout the home, and the entirely supplied kitchen includes quartz countertops and a double oven.
The home has 8 bedrooms (6 Kings, 5 Twins, 1 Double, Futon), 6 1/2 baths, and can sleep 20 in beds. Have more than 20 people? No problem as our neighbor can accommodate another 20 people in a very similar floor plan. Great to accommodate family get-togethers, weddings and other events that bring you to the island. It has a reverse floor plan, so the kitchen, living room and main master bedroom are on the top (3rd) floor and have great vistas. The home has a private pool on-site, which we can heat in spring or fall. The dual, heated outdoor shower is convenient for rinsing off after returning from the beach, and the shower deck is made from Poly-Wood, so you don’t have to worry about splinters.
This marvelous home is a 3-min. walk from the public beach access. It is located on the beautiful west end of Ocean Isle Beach (fewer homes than the east end = less busy beach). It is at the end of the paved section of West 2nd Street, so it is safe for kids with very little traffic. With undeveloped land on 2 sides, you'll have fantastic, vistas of the ocean and sound from the wrap-around decks on each level.
With six King bedrooms, this home works great for enormous, multi-generational family gatherings and vacations with multiple families. We have also hosted many church retreats and corporate retreats.

What to Bring: A complete linen package is included for all of our guests, and everything is newly laundered each week (5 nighttime minimum stay). We do not provide beach towels or other beach gear. However, you can pack a little lighter, as we provide a beach cart, and rolling cooler for transporting kids, beach chairs, and beverages to and from the beach.
Conveniences: The home has a private pool which can be heated in the spring and fall additional costs may be charged. The pool area has resort grade furnishings, including reclining lounge chairs for sunbathing, as well as two tables and non-reclining chairs for pool-side dining. NEW for 2024 we provide access (may-oct) to The Isles Beach Club which has an additional huge pool, hot tub, access to beach, and a restaurant (12 guests max at a time).
There is a full-sized refrigerator on the ground level to keep your pool drinks cold. We provide a number of pool toys and floats for the kids. ICE machine on the ground floor in the summer to fill coolers.
The sizable kitchen is well outfitted with service for 20. It is equipped with stainless steel appliances, including a smooth-top 5-burner stove, double oven, microwave, toaster oven, 2 coffee makers, Keurig, Ninja blender, dishwasher, and French-door refrigerator/freezer with ice maker and filtered water. There are plenty of pots, pans, casserole dishes, mixing bowls, muffin pans, etc. Several guests have commented that this kitchen is better supplied than theirs at home.
We provide all of the basics: dish soap, dishwasher detergent, coffee filters, etc., and a starter supply of K-cups.
The home is also equipped with a stackable washer and dryer, as well as an iron and ironing board. There is a clothes line in the carport for hanging wet beach towels and bathing suits. Laundry detergent, fabric softener and dryer sheets are all supplied.
Recreation: Of course, the main attraction is the beach but there are also many great golf courses within 15 mins. (and over 100 courses within a 20-mile radius of OIB). On the island, there is a miniature golf course and tennis courts. You can also rent bicycles or charter a fishing trip. The Museum of Coastal Carolina is located on the island. The OIB Property Owners Association sponsors a concert series every Friday evening during the summer at the new Ocean Isle Town Park in the center of the island.
Just off the island, you can find go-cart racing and more miniature golf. Silver Coast Winery is only 15 mins. from the island and offers tours and tastings. Myrtle Beach is only 45 mins. away and has everything from water parks to outlet malls to the NASCAR Speedpark. It is also home to the Myrtle Beach Pelicans, a Class A minor league baseball team affiliated with the Chicago Cubs.
We are at the end of a lightly traveled street, so bicycle riding is a safe activity. Inside, there are toys and board games and a Sony PlayStation4 with mostly E-rated games.
Eateries: There are a number of eateries on the island, and more on the mainland. We do have a few favorites. For dinner, Roberto's, just off the island, is one of our favorites. The Bang-Bang Shrimp makes a great appetizer. The fish is always fresh and the pasta dishes are hard to beat. The pizza is so good we often have them prepare extras that we freeze and bring home. Roberto's also has a full bar.
Calabash, the 'Seafood Capital of the World,' is only 6 miles from OIB. For dinner, we adore The Boundary House. Capt. Nance's and Ella's both offer the typical fried fish, shrimp and hush puppies that made Calabash famed.
For breakfast, we like Castaways which is just off the island next to Tsunami Surf Shop, but it's modest so it doesn't work well for huge groups. Our other favorite is the Purple Onion Cafe in Shallotte which has giant pancakes, blueberry biscuits and fantastic raspberry cream cheese croissants. If you need a caffeine fix, Drift Coffee Bar is on the island near the museum and OIB Surf and Java is just off the island in the Lowes Foods shopping center.
The OIB Fish Company has a rooftop Tiki Bar and is on the island just before the bridge. The Sugar Shack is highly regarded for its Jamaican cuisine, but call ahead because it is usually busy.
Note - There are security cameras covering the driveway and front porch. There are no cameras indoors or with a view into the outdoor shower or pool.

Booking the best Wilmington, NC vacation property experience:

Sticking to a spending plan:

  • In the Wilmington, NC area, The earlier your group can book, the easier your search will be. The most desirable rental homes are booked early. Booking your rental property six to twelve months before your vacation is recommended. Holidays such as Christmas and Thanksgiving are excellent times to plan and book your vacation rental.
  • Book your rental property in Fall or Spring to get the benefit of warm weather while saving money and avoiding crowded roads, restaurants, and activities. Many vacationers use this strategy to find larger homes within budget, or to reserve an oceanfront vacation rental that would otherwise be unavailable during the Summer. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook Winter holidays for a Wilmington, NC vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday on the coast? Christmas, Thanksgiving, and New Years Eve are great times to gather with loved ones at the beach.
  • Property managers sometimes offer rate reductions for active duty military and veterans. Check with your host or property manager to see if special offers are available for your family.
  • Property managers usually offer guests an option to obtain vacation insurance. Trip insurance, which costs 1% - 5% of the stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for missed vacation time as a result of medical-related emergencies or weather disasters, as well as hurricane evacuation costs, such as an unexpected hotel or additional fuel expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a welcome relief if the unforeseen happens. Ask your property manager for additional information.
  • Many rental management companies supply Wilmington, NC area visitor guides that include coupons, either offered directly by local businesses, or through a relationship between the property management company and the business itself. You can also find Wilmington, NC visitors guide magazine and coupon books at local shops and grocery stores.

  • Start by selecting your a vacation week and a spending budget.
  • Note the number beds and the configuration your group requires. 8 Bedrooms, 7 Baths, Sleeps 20, Linens, Private Heated Pool, Elevator, Golf Near has 8 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms.
  • Precise descriptions of bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is almost always accessible online. If they are not listed, contact the property owner before you book the vacation home. Note that most listings specify maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds.
  • Some rentals allow pets, but others don't. Acceptable types of dog or cat, weight and breeds may be restricted, and added fees may apply. Ask the owner about pets before booking.
  • Is your family looking for special amenities? Most rental search websites include search filters with amenity lists. Filtering by amenity will allow you to quickly find your ideal rental.
  • Proper accessibility can make or ruin a vacation for persons with disabilities. Confirm all necessary amenities are available before booking.

More tips for your visit:

  • Get the owner's phone number and arrival/departure procedures for your rental property.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a fireplace, elevator or kitchen appliance. Contact your owner. They are there to help! A brief telephone call can prevent many concerns.
  • Protect the rental owner (and your stuff!) by locking the rental when you are out, just like you would at home.
  • Document any issues with the rental upon arrival, and immediately contact the host. We especially recommend e-mails and text messages, as they usually contain built-in time stamps that are very helpful if there is a dispute.
  • Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking regulations can make a stay more pleasurable. Be a good neighbor. You will magnify your chance to make local friends, and resident neighbors are often a fantastic resource to find the best local beaches.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Locals can often help you find exactly what you're looking for. Who better to ask where to charter a fishing boat, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for crabbing?
  • Just prior to departing, complete a walk-through to make sure you have not leave anything behind. Make sure to check bathrooms, garages, and back yards for hidden treasure. Clean out the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Please make sure to walk through the rental one final time and keep an eye out for damages to contents or the property itself. We suggest inspecting the property with the property manager whenever you can (often this isn't possible). If the manager isn't available, remember to take video and pictures of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you have a excellent time? Most rental managers make it easy for guests to provide comments. If your property and/or host was great, they would love to hear it. If anything was imperfect and they failed to address it in a reasonable manner, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make a note as part of your review.
