Coastal North Carolina Condo Rental Photos and Description

Top Floor Condo/Villa,4 Bedrooms + Convertible beds, 4 Full Baths Sleeps 12-16

Welcome to our home for relaxed island living! We love OIB because of its' expansive white sand beach, and small town family atmosphere,& the many golf courses in the area. There is enough room for relaxation that won't cramp anyone's space. Top floor provides great views, and is quieter as no one will be walking above you. The condo sleeps max. 16, and all 4 BR's have private, full baths - which makes it possible for all to get ready at the same time! LR has a queen sleeper sofa. Bed linens/bath towels are included. Laundry room has full sized W/D, so pack light. Kitchen is fully equipped to meet all your gourmet cooking needs. The spacious top floor deck is great for entertaining or sitting quietly watching the sunsets. Stairs aren't required as there is an elevator to bring you & your belongings up. New HDTV's are in all BR's and HDTV/DVD in LR. Other amenities include WiFi, outdoor shower to rinse off the sand, and covered off street parking. You have access to the private beach club with a large oceanfront pool, hot tub, kiddie pool, Tiki bar & The Isles Restaurant. If you like tennis, the courts are just across the street. There is extra parking at the tennis courts if you need more parking spaces.

Golf in the area: Ocean Isle Beach is an excellent central location in Brunswick Isles to play 30+ golf courses, many of which are premier courses. Our condo is set up perfectly for 1-2 foursomes - with 9 beds, everyone will have their own bed! Your group can stay in one place - not separate hotel rooms. After a long day of golfing, we have a large deck to relax on before dinner. If you stay 7 nights, we will buy a GSGA card for 1 foursome that gives you substantial savings on courses in the Brunswick Isles and Myrtle Beach. The card gives you discounts at some local restaurants. Our favorite courses are Brunswick Plantation, Crow Creek, Farmstead Golf Links, Carolina National Golf Club, Pearl Golf Links, Rivers Edge Golf Club, Sea Trail golf Resort, and Sandpiper Bay Golf Club which was voted #1 golf course in the area for 2010. These are 7-15 miles from Ocean Isle Beach. You can bring your family too - there's plenty to do for everyone.

Girls Getaways: Our condo is perfect for friends who want to spend some quality time doing what you love without interruption. There's plenty of shopping in the area, as well as Myrtle Beach to the south or Wilmington to the north.

About Mindy & Kirk Johnston

We have been vacationing here at Ocean Isle Beach, NC for 35 years - since our daughters were little. They are now 37 and 30, married, and between them have 5 little ones, so another generation has been added. We have always spent summers on the island because no one wanted to go anywhere else! Now, they bring their children, ages 11, 7, 6, 4 and 1 yr. old to Ocean Isle Beach. It is our hope that you will fall in love with this island like we did, and make many wonderful memories too!

Mindy & Kirk Johnston purchased this condo in 2010

Why Mindy & Kirk Johnston chose Coastal North Carolina

We purchased our condo for our family because of all the memories we have made over the years, vacationing with my parents, our girls and now the 4th generation, our grandchildren. We rented from our friends for a few years, and knew that it had the space we needed with 4 bedrooms and 4 baths. We also love this side of the island. Being on the top floor, we have great views of the ocean, wetlands, intercostal waterways, and beautiful sunrises and sunsets. It is also quiet with no one above you. The elevator is handy when bringing up suitcases, groceries. It is quieter on this side of the island and the kids love to feed the turtles in the lagoon behind our condo. The tennis courts are across the street, and the Isles Beach Club oceanfront pool is close and private for Islander Resort members only. It is also great to have covered parking.

We love where this condo sits on the island, giving us great views of the ocean, wetlands and inter-coastal waterway. The sunsets viewed from our deck are beautiful and it is just a short walk to the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hey Mindy! Just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that we did vacation in Ocean Isle again this year. We booked through Cooke Realty, and boy did it make us appreciate the experience we had with you and your condo!!! The place we stayed in was ocean front, but that was the only good thing about it! It was filthy when we arrived and the fridge was warm. After numerous calls to Cooke with no response, we called the owner who acted like we were bothering her. She was very rude to us.

Just thought I would let you know that you guys are doing a great job with the condo-it is beautiful and immaculate and if we decide to go to Ocean Isle next year, we will definitely be in touch with you!! Oceanfront is not worth sleeping in a dirty bed!!

The property was very nice and well maintained. Everything was in working order.

  • 4 of 5

Thank u Mindy and Kirk for renting ur beautiful condo to us. The condo kitchen was well stocked with any imaginable gadget. Bedrooms and baths were very nice. I would recommend renting a golf cart ahead of time. The location is alittle far from the beach and the pool, especially for little children.

We really enjoyed the condo. Everybody had a wonderful time - everything worked and it was clean.

  • 5 of 5

We love coming to Ocean Isle and we were impressed with the condo. We were disappointed that the pool closes at 6PM. In the past we have stayed at the Winds where the pool is opened until 10PM. Is there anything that can be done to keep the pool opened later than 6PM - Other than that we were totally satisfied with the property. The property was clean and well maintained and I would recommend this property to others - just the swimming pool was an issue.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying at our condo. We work hard to keep it clean, up to date and everything in good working order. I have called I the past regarding the pool hours, but will do so again to see if this could be changed. I agree, 6:00 is too early to close

Thank you so much for sharing your home! We went on a girls trip and the accommodations were fantastic. This home is everything that it says it is and more. The house was immaculate and provided everything you could possibly need or want. You immediately feel welcomed when you enter the home. The owners are very pleasant and easy to work with. Thanks Mindy for your great hospitality! Looking forward to working with you in the future!

If you are as picky as I am about cleanliness and customer service - you need to look no further. The Johnston are just wonderful people! The condo - their home away from home - is just impeccable - beautifully decorated - and comfortable. We have used their condo now 5 times and will continue to - we like it and the island that much! Thank you Mindy and Kirk for making this week a joy for my family and always - "stress free". family.

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

Dear Kirk and Mindy,

Our family of 12, 6 adults and 6 grands, enjoyed our stay at your condo. Everything was great! The bedding was clean and comfortable and the four baths were convenient. I really appreciated the well stocked kitchen. Everything we needed was available. Our grands loved the game table, and the family room had plenty of comfortable seating. We enjoyed the views from the deck morning and evenings. The large capacity washing machine and dryer was a plus for our large family. Mindy, thank you for keeping me informed when I had questions that you so graciously answered. As a busy family wanting quality time together, we certainly were pleased with our stay at your condo at Ocean Isle Beach!

Thank you,

The Whites and Olivers

Wonderful beach rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at The Johnstons beach condo in OIB. The condo was beautifully decorated and very clean. If we could do it again, we would probably rent a golf cart. The pool and ocean are not far at all, but it is a walk with a bunch of beach stuff. There is also parking at the restaurant/pool so I would def utilize that... we never had a problem finding a spot. Our favorite restaurant was Pogie's waterfront which was close to the circle. Great food and a nice band was playing Friday evening on the rooftop deck. All in all, a fantastic trip and we would definitely rent from Kirk and Mindy again. They could not have been more on top of things and helpful with planning our trip. Lastly, try to arrive before 2pm or after 5pm to avoid major traffic getting on the island.
