Ocean Isle Beach House Rental Photos and Description

4 BR, 3 Baths, Sleeps 12

Beach right across the street!!! 1600-square-foot cottage (not a condo) at the West End of Ocean Isle Beach. One of the best locations in the Island Park Community.... 150 yards from beach with very direct beach access. Also close to community pools and docks located on the sound. Views of sound and pond (w/fountain). If you need a working vacation, super high speed turbo internet.

Enjoy having the amenities of condominium living but the privacy, convenience, and other benefits of having your own house. In addition to two upper decks (one on each side of the house) that offer various degrees of shade/sun, we have a private and shady underneath deck adjacent to a stocked bass pond. This deck offers a swing, rocking chairs, and hammock. The underneath area of the house also has a new gas grill, private outside shower, and plenty of room for parking and play.

Kid Friendly!: This is a kid-friendly house in a unique community that is ideal for kids. When not at the beach, they can walk and ride bikes in the streets, play in the front yard or underneath the house, fish in the ponds or sound, and enjoy all of the community amenities. Since our house is located at the far West End of Ocean Isle, the traffic on the beach road is mostly residents or guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We live in Buffalo and wanted to get away from the snow. Were a little skeptical of the great rates and owner flexibility, but this was absolutely perfect. Clean, across the street from beach, and great amenities. And the house had everything we needed..... tvs, bikes, stocked kitchen, bedding, etc. We will be back in February and this summer

GREAT HOUSE FOR FAMILY VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our vacation to Ocean Isle Beach this past week and absolutely loved our time there. We had up to ten people staying at one time throughout the week (5 adults and 5 kids) and there was plenty of space for everyone.

The owner (Scott) quickly responded quickly to any communication/questions and made sure we had everything we needed.

The location was perfect - just a short walk to the beach and pool. It is about a mile and a half from the center of town and it wasn't a problem to drive in and park to do things. The house is located next to the canal and we enjoyed watching the turtles.

The house looks and feels lived in, but that allowed us to feel more comfortable and make ourselves at home. I didn't feel like I had to worry constantly about my kids breaking something or getting dirty fingerprints on the walls. The beds and couches were very comfortable and having TVs in each room was a plus.

We especially appreciated all of the items that were available for our use. The bikes and wagon made getting to the beach and pool much easier. The bikes are definitely in used condition, but like I said earlier, I didn't have to worry about my kids damaging anything. All of the baby items were great for our 11 month old (pack & play, high chair, baby gate, exersaucer, stroller) so that we didn't have to pack the entire house for the week at the beach. The kids had their own room with a bunk bed and we brought video games for them to play when inside.

As far as Ocean Isle Beach, we have been to many beaches and this one definitely tops the list of favorites. The beach is beautiful with lots of space and shells. The 'neighborhood' seemed very safe and it was nice to be able to take walks on the roads and beach. We have already started to talk about vacation next summer and this is at the top of our list.

**In response to any previous complaints: This isn't a Better Homes and Gardens beach house, it is a rental and has been lived in. If you value comfort and affordability, then I'm sure you will be pleased. Everything in the house worked as it was supposed to and the owners were very easy to work with.

REPEAT VISITOR

  • 4 of 5
My family has stayed in this house for two consecutive summers. In the summer of '07 the house was absolutely pristine. It met all of our needs and was in an excellent location. Dealing with the owners was a pleasure and never had any problems. Because of our great experience we decided to stay again.

Summer of '08 (early June) the house had shown some wear and tear. The grill did not have propane. The walls and cabinets had seen better days. We were never able to properly use the advertised wireless internet. The coffee maker was a fire hazard due to some loose wires. And we did encounter a few BIG bugs in the house.

The cleaning service did not clean the house well and hope, as was mentioned previously, that there is a new service.

Dealing with the owners was still easy but we never did receive a separate key to the house. We had to wait for our house guests to arrive to open the doors even though we were told the cleaning service would leave the door open.

There are, however, many wonderful restaurants in the Ocean Isle area and the beaches and ocean are always a treat.

We would rent this unit again. I'm sure the owners are well aware of the minor problems within the house and will or have corrected them in a timely manner.

Owner's Response: We have become aware of the issues pointed out through communication from our guests. The gas grill is replaced every summer and was replaced with a brand new grill in late June. We cannot ensure propone tank is full but do let guests know that we will reimburse them if they fill it up. Two brand new coffee pots and a new toaster overn are now in the house. The cleaning service is new and we have had many issues with them. Most have been addressed and no icomplaints since early August. The walls are repainted every fall and will be done again this year. Keys werre a mistake on our part but could have been easily fixed with a phone call. Deck furniture has been replaced with new furniture. Wireless router had a passcode on it (like most) but cleaning crew removed the code from the router thinking it was trash. We were not aware of this but have addressed. I guess some guests were just hardwiring into the modem.

Other plans for this fall to make the house nicer are: two new coucheds in the main room, large flat screen tv in the main room and flat screen in the master bedroom, new comforter on all the beds, new shower curtains, new kitchen utensils, new grass in front yard, and maybe new carpets or hardwood floors.

A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED........

  • 3 of 5
We were a little disappointed with this vacation rental. We always barbeque, but the gas grill was not new as stated in the description. It was old, rusted and broken. The house also had a lot of cosmetic damage (writing on the walls, broken cabinet, dirty carpets). There were some dead bugs and dust under and around the furniture. The Digital Cable box was inoperable, but the basic cable was working. We were unable to use the bathroom closet because it was full of the homeowners' personal items. The house was in a great location. It was very easy to get to the beach or pool. The beach was gorgeous and the water temperature was so warm! We heard great reviews about the Sugar Shack, but were very disappointed with the food (steak and jerk chicken). Ocean Isle did not have a lot of activities and attractions, but Myrtle Beach was less than an hour away.

Owner's Response: This guest was not the one making the reservation and not aware that Ocean Isle is more of a family beach and not Myrtle Beach. There are about 6 or 7 restaurants on the island and some are very good. Calabash is also only 15 minutes away. First time I have ever heard any complaints about Ocean Isle. Glad she was able to note the good location of our home.

However, not sure why she would call attention to such petty things as bathroom closet space. This is an owners closet that we leave open for the benefit of our guests (contains extras towels, sheets, bath toys, etc. for guests). There is plenty of space under the cabinets.

Regarding other items noted
= Gas grill is less that one year old and does have some typical beach rust but was in very good condiion in May. We cannot maintain the propane from weekt to week and ask guests to fill if necessary (we reimburse them). The grill is replaced every summer and will be replaced immediately.
= Walls do often get marked up by kids but were repainted last month. Any marks on the walls must be new and will be repainted again in Sept. This guests must have not had kids, because she failed to point out all the kid friendly features (crib, high chair, beach toys, wagon, bike with baby seat, baby pool, etc)
= Carpets were professionally cleaned in May by Heavenly Home. They do a very deep clean and looked brand new then. Sand does get tracked in and can give the carpet an offwhite color. This is concerning to hear and we will have cleaned again if this is a legitimate issue.
= We have pest control through Allied. They treat every month and any bugs around our home are dead. Most homes around the beach have bugs, but many do not have pest control. We have a new cleaning crew that does an excellent job..... we will alert them to cleaning behind furniture so no dead bugs are missed.
= Digital cable was Time Warner box issue and it has been replaced.

If this guest had notifited us of these issues, we would have immediately replaced the grill, had our home and carpets recleaned, and had Time Warner replace the box.

BETTER THAN A HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 5 of 5
I rented this property for an extended period of time during the off-season. I would highly recommend this home for a group with children. High chair, crib, pack-n-play, bouncy seat, bicycle with child carrier, stroller, wagon to pull to the beach--everything you need including a kids' room with single bunk, double bunk and trundle bed. The owner was gracious and accommodating. I was able to relax in the evenings in front of the 42" tv or sit on the deck and hear the waves crashing on the nearby beach. There's a swing on the ground level overlooking a tranquility pond and a hammock to nap in. The neighborhood is gated, a sparkling pool is nearby if you don't care for ocean swimming. Great restaurants are on Ocean Isle Beach so you don't have to go far for a superb meal. The Giggling Mackerel is my favorite, the Japanese Steak House my next choice. Be prepared to climb steps: 23 to the first floor, more to the second floor bedrooms. Each bedroom has its own bath on the second floor and the first floor bedrooms share a large bath. Beds are comfortable. Dishes, pots and pans are quite adequate. Pack a jacket as the ocean breezes can be cool at night. Bring your towels and sheets. I hope you enjoy this home as much as I have. --Marty P.

We were extremely comfortable in this nice home. All the amenities for kids present.


The grill did not have any propane, though.

The keys stuck a little in the locks.
