Ocean Isle Beach has a lot going for it; it's the PERFECT beach and the Seawitch is front row! Located close to golf courses, outlet malls, musical entertainment, great seafood, and some of the most spectacular sunsets this side of the Mississippi! Come spend a long weekend or summer week in our comfortable bungalow right on the water where you can sit on the front porch and watch the waves roll in.

This Ocean Front Cottage on OIB is located where the island is the least busy but the pier, puttputt, stores and eateries are a short walk away.

The 'Seawitch', aptly named, because that is what my grandmother said she looked like as she came up out of the water from a swim, is a impressive, family aligned, lovingly cared for, bungalow style OCEAN FRONT PROPERTY at Ocean Isle Beach, NC.

This five bedroom bungalow has two bedrooms with one queen-sized bed each, two bedrooms with one queen and one double bed, and one bedroom with two double beds each for a total capacity of 16 plus a infant bed in one of the rooms with two doubles. We do not offer linen service, but we recommend that if you want book linens to contact Angie's Linens at Ocean Isle Beach, NC at 910-575-2788. Book early they are only open M-F 8-6. Or cut your price by bringing your own bed linens and towels.

Each year we do renovations or improvements in the spring. We upgrade the beds and bedspreads on a rotating basis every year, we freshly remodeled all of the bathrooms and refreshed the kitchen. We also put in a new heating and a/c unit, replacing the ductwork, and redoing the ceilings. We also added new floor for the main part of the home leaving the bedrooms carpeted to keep the sand out of your bed. Last spring we tore down the old pier/deck area and added a new one and we painted the home, refreshed one of the shower/tubs, and added a new dining room table which seats at least nine. This summer we added new living room furnishings which we LOVE. We also upgraded the fireplace with a new electric unit you can turn on for additional heat or just turn on the flame for ambiance. (We decorate over the holidays!) We complete projects every year to keep the place looking nice and up to date. Next year it is a new ocean side glass door and a new shower in the bathroom between the rooms with single queen beds. Finally, we will be able to take showers in there without getting iced out when someone turns on water somewhere else!

Constructed in 1979 with the 'old style' beach bungalow in mind, the kitchen, dining area and the living room are in the middle and the bedrooms on the sides of the home. The bungalow has three bathrooms upstairs, a outside enclosed shower downstairs, and a place to rinse off on the pier.

The real luxury of the home though is the front porch and deck area with its rocking chairs, picnic table, and loungers. Feel the ocean breezes flow over you as your cares slip away. Run off the beach and straight up to your bungalow, take a shower in the outside shower, and sit in a rocking chair until you dry off from your swim. The clothes line is usually seen with towels and bathing suits flapping in the wind.

Make yourself some 'Frogmore Stew', throw it out on some newspapers on the enormous dining room table and tell the kids to dig in. Hang up some event lights and dance on the deck to some Jimmy Buffett as the sun sets in the distance. This is the bungalow to take you back to a simpler time!

This home is well supplied with items that many of the units do not include. The kitchen is entirely outfitted with enough dishes, glasses, silverware, pots, pans, etc. to feed sizable family. My dad thought he was Emeril so you will find all kinds of gadgets in the kitchen drawers. We also have books, games, and movies scattered around in different drawers/places for you to borrow during your stay.

For all you movie buffs and sports enthusiasts, you can sit in the living room and appreciate movies or sports on the huge HDTV complete with BlueRay DVD Player and surround sound. Look out the window and watch the ocean instead of the commercials!

Wireless Internet and Time Warner/Spectrum Cable are included. There is a flatscreen TV and cable in every bedroom.

Our family has been so spoiled by this beach home that to go anywhere else is a letdown. The location is ideal, you will feel a anxiety let down as you cross over the bridge to the island and transition to 'island time'.

Staying at the family friendly OIB is the BEST place to be, but if you long for some nighttime life and outlet shopping, you are only a few mins. away. Myrtle Beach is only 20 - 30 mins. south, and Wilmington 45 mins. north on Hwy 17. Calabash is known for the best seafood in the nation and it is a mere 10 mins. away. If you want to catch a movie, you can head to North Myrtle Beach. Golfers, there are golf courses all around you. Adventurers you can head out to The Swamp Park on Airport Road to go on a guided ATV or Swamp boat tour or even Zip Line. Historic Southport, NC is only 35 mins. away.

Tricks and tips to get the best Wilmington, NC rental experience:

When to visit & When to book:

  • Book your rental as soon as possible. Rental schedules often open a year in advance (or in September just after Summer ends). Many groups reserve their Summer vacations during Winter holiday get-togethers. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • June, July, and August are the most expensive months in Ocean Isle Beach. To get the most suitable rental within budget, we strongly suggest reserving in Fall or Spring months. You'll benefit from lower rental rates, greater selection, beautiful weather and the absence of large crowds at your favorite Wilmington, NC restaurants and activities.
  • Hosts sometimes offer discounts for active duty military and veterans. Ask your host or property manager if special offers are available for your group before you book.
  • Property managers often offer guests an option to add trip insurance. Trip insurance, which normally costs between 1% - 5% of the base reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for any missed vacation time as a result of personal medical-related emergencies or weather disasters, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation charges, such as an unanticipated hotel stay or additional gas expenses. Trip insurance might be a a welcome relief if the unforeseen occurs. Ask the property owner for details.
  • Often, rental management companies and vacation rental houses supply Wilmington, NC area visitors guide magazines which often include money-saving deals, either offered independently by local companies, or through a relationship with the management company and the business itself. You can also find Wilmington, NC area magazine and coupon books at local grocery stores, shopping centers, and visitor centers.

How to choose the best vacation rental:

  • Choose your vacation week and maximum budget.
  • Determine how many beds and the configuration your group requires. Ocean Front Home with Spectacular Views has 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
  • Precise descriptions of bedrooms and bed types is generally available on booking websites. If they are not listed, email or call the property manager before you reserve your home. Note that most listings specify maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes pull-out couches. You'll need to work out what configuration is suitable for your family.
  • Some rental properties allow pets, but others don't. Allowable types of family pet, weight and breeds may be restricted, and added charges may apply. Ask the property manager about your furry family members before booking.
  • Are you looking for unique amenities? Most rental websites include search filters for amenities. Use these filters to your advantage to find the perfect rental home.
  • Proper accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for the less-mobile. .

During your stay:

  • Add the owner's information to your phone. Print and take a copy of check in/check out procedures.
  • Property managers are great sources of help! Don't be shy to ask any questions before, during, or after your stay.
  • Lock your vacation home while you are out and about. Keep your property safe!
  • At Check-in, make note of any damages to the rental property and immediately alert the host. Keep records of all correspondence just in case a dispute arises.
  • Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking rules can make a stay significantly more pleasurable. You will increase your chance to make some new local friends, and resident neighbors are usually a fantastic source for finding the best local beaches.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local! Local residents can typically help. Who better to ask where to go for the best drinks, have a great night out, or the best spots for BBQ?
  • When it's time to leave, complete a walk-through to make sure you have not forget anything. Check bathrooms, garages, and back yards for hidden items. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Please make sure to walk through the property a final time and keep an eye out for any damage. We suggest inspecting the property with the property manager whenever you can (often this isn't possible). If the property manager is not available, ensure that you take photos of the rental to record its condition at check-out.
  • Did your group have a fantastic stay? Many vacation rental websites make it easy for vacationers to provide comments. If your property and/or property manager was wonderful, they would love to hear it. If anything was defective and they failed to correct it within reason, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make it a point as part of your feedback.
