Traditional Ocean Isle Beach Vacation Cottage
Before there were beach McMansions, there were beach cottages. Originally built in the early 70's three rows back, this cottage is one hurricane from ocean front and two from becoming Young's Reef (thanks in part to inlet dredging)! Now available with free Wi-Fi.
Enjoy spectacular million dollar ocean, inlet, and island views from the front deck. Clear views of Holden Beach and Oak Island across Shallotte Inlet, too. How close to the ocean? You can toss a football into the surf from the front yard at high tide. Island's End (a.k.a. Almost Oceanfront) is a well kept, older beach cottage. Only rented four seasons!
This house is called 'Almost Oceanfront' because there is a street in front, then dune/sandbags, then beach. While not oceanfront, the house enjoys all the unobstructed views of a oceanfront home. From time to time lunar high tides, high winds and storms will send ocean water into the street. Not harmful, just a spectacle. For beach dwellers, it is just part of living at the beach.
Pets and Smoking: We are absolutely convinced that your pet is clean, well behaved, perfectly adorable and exceptional in every way possible. However, guests that are specifically looking for smoke and pet free accommodations expect and deserve what we advertise, 100% of the time, without exceptions. This is a smoke and pet free rental. Sorry, we don't make exceptions for any reason.
Need another place the same week for your friends? We can help you make the arrangements. We have a 1BR 1 BA Channel Harbor Condo (sleeps 6) on the west end with a pool.
About this Cottage:
If you are looking for modern and/or the bustle of Myrtle Beach, this is not it. This cottage is the 5th house from the east end of the island on a dead-end street. Not much traffic. Great for walking, running, biking, fishing, sunning, relaxing and the like. Beach access is a very short walk out the back door , down 3 houses to the 4th Street crossing.
The Intra Coastal Waterway and new fishing pier is just a few blocks away. Great place to fish, launch a kayak, swim, crab, shell and watch boats and barges. A great new nature/walking trail with long wood bridges along the Intra Coastal Waterway has just been built. Our kids love it, yours will too!

Guestbook comments from the manager
If there were anytime to visit the Atlantic, fall is it! The water is warm, the air is crisp and the beach is uncrowned. We had a ball. The views from the front deck of this house were second to none. The house was so easy to be comfortable in with family and friends. It felt like a second home. The walk to the beach was a breeze. Great biking and running. Great cooking and eating accommodations. Fresh local seafood was easy to cook in the giant steam pot and outdoor grill. If we come back to North Carolina, we will come back. Islands End and it's owner gets 5 stars!

When we bought this house in 1999, we never planned to rent it. We spent too much time enjoying it ourselves. Now that the kids are grown and college tuition is due, we are not only happy to share our beach house...but motivated renters. We hope that you enjoy our piece of paradise as much as we do. OIB is a wonderful place for families of lasting memories. Islands End is a great holiday retreat. Hope to see you this summer at OIB.
Traveling from Michigan, for as long as I can remember, our family spent two weeks at either Sunset Beach or Ocean Isle Beach, NC. Now grown and married with kids, we have since moved to N Carolina. As we searched for a beach house, we visited nearly every beach and island from the Virginia Beach line to Brunswick GA and beyond. So I find it ironic that our family has gravitated back to Ocean Isle Beach, NC. OIB It is a magical place that makes for a great family vacation. Close enough to the chaos of Myrtle Beach without having to live with it, OIB has all of the beach amenities. Great boating, fishing, biking, walking, sunning, shopping, swimming...the works. Islands End benefits from the quiet of being on both dead end street and being close to everything. The views are great. The house is nice enough to be comfortable but not too nice as to have to worry about the kids destroying anything. Its the perfect low maintenance, low stress holiday.
We have never worried about turning the kids loose on the east end of OIB. Beach access is close by. The Atlantic Intra Coastal Waterway is a short walk down the street as is a new fishing pier. Wide streets for biking. The million dollar unobstructed view of the ocean, inlet and Holden Beach from the front deck is fantastic. The ground floor fridge, gas grill and gas steam pot makes cooking for a crowd a cinch. The outdoor showers keeps the beach out of the house. The big freaking flat screen TV and Road Runner Wi-Fi and Satellite TV makes movies a snap. What more do you need?
