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 65-inch TV. All 8 bedrooms have flat screen HD TVs. Most of the TVs are Intelligent 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 completely outfitted kitchen includes quartz countertops and a double oven.
The home has 8 bedrooms (including 4 Kings), 6 1/2 baths, and can sleep 20 in beds. 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 heat for our spring and fall guests at no additional charge. 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 amazing home is a 3-min. walk from the public beach access. It is located on the charming 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 3 sides, you'll have fantastic, unobstructed vistas of the ocean and sound from the wrap-around decks on each level.
With six King bedrooms, this home works great for huge, multi-generational family gatherings and vacations with multiple families. We have also hosted many church retreats and corporate retreats.
We will provide a full refund for any cancellations due to government-imposed travel restrictions.
What to Bring: A complete linen package is supplied for all of our guests, and everything is freshly laundered each week. We do not provide beach towels or other beach gear. However, you can pack a little lighter, as we provide an all-terrain Radio Flyer wagon, 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 at no additional charge. 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.
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. The outdoor shower features two shower heads each with hot and cold water, as well as Poly-wood decking (no splinters).
The sizable kitchen is well supplied 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). Our home also has its own private pool which we heat for our spring and fall guests at no additional charge. 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 appreciate 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 enormous 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.
