Ocean Isle Beach House Rental Photos and Description
5 BR 3 bath recently renovated home with private pool. 5 minute walk to beach!
We purchased the property in the Fall of 2013. She was a little dated and needed some TLC. This is our 3rd beach house renovation in the area. We loved this house because of her west island location on a corner lot with easy beach or marsh access. The street is one of the public beach access points and the house is a very short walk away from the public beach access (less than a five minute walk).
The home is a two-story 90's era home featuring an open concept living area, dining area and kitchen in the center of the house. There is a large deck and screened in porch on the front and a large deck overlooking the pool on the back. A rooftop deck offers 360 degree views of the island - including the ocean and marsh and even the bridge in the distance.
The first floor houses the living & dining rooms and kitchen. This area was updated with beautiful new hardwood floors. We gave the kitchen modern updates like stainless steel appliances and 'Pebble Beach' quartz counter tops. On the first floor you will find two master BRs complete with king sized beds and private bathrooms. The second floor has 2 BRs with queens that share a large, double vanity bath. The 'bunk room' has two bunk beds to sleep four guests. The bedrooms have new neutral carpet and paint and are decorated in the colors of the sand, sun and surf - nice and relaxing. We have used some fun nautical touches in our decor like vintage water skis, oars and life rings to add to the coastal feel. All BRs have their own flat screen TVs and ceiling fans and the house also has WIFI in the event you must access your laptop or other devices! (But we encourage relaxation!)
Our philosophy is to offer spacious and comfortable bedrooms and not to 'cram' multiple beds in each room. However, there is plenty of floor space in each BR for sleeping bags or blow up mattresses if you would like to bring those for additional guests. We also have a full size sofa in LR.
On the front of the house, there is a large porch with rockers and a screened in porch with additional seating areas for relaxing. The second story has an outside stairwell leading up to a rooftop deck where you can take in the ocean and marsh views. You can see water in every direction from up top. The back deck overlooks your private pool. Southern Comfort has a ton of outdoor living space! (Every BR except the Bunk Room has deck or balcony access.)
Ahhhh...The Pool! The pool is newly installed and located in the backyard and is gated and fenced for privacy. It features a 'waterfall' and the trickling water sound will melt your cares away! There are lounge chairs for sunning by the pool. We have a charcoal grill in this area and a shady spot under the deck so you can sit out of the sun if needed and watch the swimmers!
There is an outdoor shower stall in the pool area. You can conveniently rinse off the sand before you hit the pool or enter the house. The laundry area is in the garage just outside of the pool area which makes dumping sandy suits and towels convenient. We like to hop in outdoor shower, drop bathing suits and beach towels in the laundry room and leave the sand outside!
There is ample shaded parking under the house and more space in the pebbled driveway. We think we have the perfect spot to enjoy your visit to OIB!

About Dana Slawter
My husband and I are both North Carolina natives and met in college. I am the nature lover and am content to be outside all day - on the beach, on the porch or at the pool! My husband is a GOLF FANATIC! He loves the area for the wonderful golf courses. (Even our sweet dog is named Birdie!) We own a real estate company in Winston-Salem and have a lot of experience with managing our own rental properties as well as those of our clients. When we choose a vacation property, we want to feel as comfortable in the rental as we do in our own home. We have put a lot of TLC into this home and hope you will feel it is your home away from home!
Dana Slawter purchased this house in 2013
Why Dana Slawter chose Ocean Isle Beach
I started coming to Ocean Isle Beach when I was a kid. In fact, my high school girlfriends and I make a trip back every year. It has always been my dream to own a place in the area and I have a passion for decorating and renovating houses.
My family and I love the small town feel of Ocean Isle - but we also like that you can make a trip to the Myrtle Beach or Wilmington areas in 30-45 minutes for a change of pace. There is something for everyone in the area - water, golf, shopping, great dining, relaxation.
From the moment you drive over the bridge onto the island, you will feel the cares of the world melt away! We purchased the house in the Fall of 2013 and have loved renovating it. The house needed some updates but had great bones. We've given it the 'modern creature comforts' you want in a home away from home. When we found out the lot was big enough to install a pool - we were thrilled. It is a wonderful addition! The location is a short walk to the beach or the marsh and is located on a public beach access street.
What makes this house unique
This home has an interior that is completely updated, inviting, comfortable and spacious. If you love outdoor spaces - this house is for you! Sun on the roof deck, rock on the front porch, have drinks on the screened porch or swim in the pool! This house lives large because of all of the outdoor spaces. You will love the convenience to the public beach access point and the house is a short walk to either beach or marsh. I have timed my walk down the street until my toes hit the sand and it's about five minutes!
(We also own another beautiful 50's era cottage around the corner - www.vrbo.com/469079 - if this home is unavailable. Or if you need two houses near one another!)
