Coastal North Carolina House Rental Photos and Description

8 Bedrooms, 6.5 Baths, Sleeps 19 in beds

Our last available Summer 2016 week of Aug 13-20 has just been discounted by $2,700 to $5,295 plus taxes. (Cleaning, linens and gas grill included).

This wonderful, 8-yr old house is less than 250 yards from the public beach access. It has 8 bedrooms (including 4 Kings), 6 1/2 baths, and can sleep 19 in beds. The kitchen, living room and main master are on the 3rd floor and have great views. The house has a private pool, which can be heated in the spring and fall. The dual, heated outdoor shower with Poly-Wood decking is convenient for rinsing off after returning from the beach.

In May 2014, we added a new backsplash and quartz countertops in the kitchen. In June 2013, we remodeled the main living room to accommodate a wall-mounted 70-inch LED Internet-connected Smart TV. We also upgraded the TV in the 2nd living room to a 46-inch Smart TV. All 8 bedrooms have flat screen HD TVs, several of which are Smart TVs. An elevator serves every floor (not the case in all houses with elevators). We provide free, secure 50MB high-speed wireless internet so you can stay connected. There are ceiling fans and tile floors throughout, and a fully stocked kitchen.

Wrap-around decks on each level offer great views of the ocean and sound. Also new as of May 2013, we have added new Poly-Wood club chairs and tables to the 3rd floor deck. This house is ideal for large family gatherings, multi-family vacations, and church retreats.

What to Bring: A complete linen package is provided for all of our Summer guests. In the off-season, the linen package is available for $270. We do not provide beach towels or other beach gear. However, you can pack a little lighter, as we provide an all-terrain Radio Flyer wagon, Wheeleez Beach Cart, and rolling cooler for transporting kids, beach chairs, and beverages, respectively, to and from the beach.

Amenities: The house has a private pool which can be heated for a surcharge of $40/day or $250/week.

The pool area has 6 reclining lounge chairs for sunbathing, as well as two tables and 6 non-reclining chairs for pool-side dining. We provide a number of pool toys and floats. The second and third level decks also have tables and chairs for outdoor dining or relaxing.

In addition to a collection of DVDs, the house has a Netflix account which can be accessed via the 4 Smart TVs.

The large kitchen is well stocked with service for 20. It is equipped with stainless steel appliances, including smooth-top stove, oven, microwave, toaster oven, 2 coffee makers, blender, dishwasher, and refrigerator/freezer with ice maker and filtered water. There are plenty of pots, pans, casserole dishes, mixing bowls, muffin pans, etc. Several guests have commented that the kitchen is better stocked than theirs at home.

The house is also equipped with a new stackable washer and dryer, as well as an iron and ironing board. There is a clothes line in the carport for hanging wet beach towels and bathing suits.

Recreation: Of course, the main attraction is the beach and building sand castles and collecting shells. Our house also has its own private pool (can be heated for a surcharge of $40/day or $250/week). On the island, there is a miniature golf course and tennis courts. You can also rent bicycles or charter a fishing trip. The Museum of Coastal Carolina is also located on the island.

Just off the island, you can find go-cart racing and more miniature golf. Silver Coast Winery is only 15 minutes from the island and offers tours and tastings. Myrtle Beach is only 45 minutes away and has everything from water parks to outlet malls to the NASCAR Speedpark. It is also home to the Myrtle Beach Pelicans, the Texas Rangers' Class A minor league baseball team.

We are at the dead end of a lightly traveled street, so bike riding is a safe activity. Inside, there are toys and board games and a PlayStation 3.

There are many great golf courses within 15 minutes and over 100 in a 40 mile radius of OIB.

Restaurants: There are a number of restaurants on the island, and more on the mainland. We do have a few favorites. For dinner, Roberto's, just off the island, is our favorite. The Bang-Bang Shrimp makes a great appetizer. The fish is always wonderful, and the Fillet Mignon is hard to beat. The pizza is so good we often have them prepare 2 that we freeze and bring home. Roberto's also has a full bar.

Calabash, the 'Seafood Capital of the World,' is only 6 miles from OIB. For dinner, we love The Boundary House. Capt. Nance's offers the typical fried fish, shrimp and hush puppies, and the prices are decent.

For breakfast, we like Sarah's in Sunset Beach. Our other favorite is the Purple Onion Cafe in Shallotte which has giant pancakes, blueberry biscuits and fantastic raspberry croissants. If you need a caffeine fix, OIB Surf and Java is just off the island and Jumpin Java is in Shallotte, and both have coffee, baked goods and smoothies.

Always fun are The Giggling Mackerel with its rooftop Tiki Bar and Sharkey's, both on the island just before the bridge. The Sugar Shack is highly regarded for its Jamaican cuisine, but call ahead because it is usually crowded.

Be sure to check out the link to our website with a 360 degree tour of the house.

About R.J.

My wife and I, along with our sisters, bought this house in July, 2009. Across 4 families, we have 8 children ranging from 14 years to a 2-yr old -- and the first 7 are all boys! We are avid sports fans, and represent Bruins (Belmont U.), Demon Deacons (Wake Forest), and two breeds of Bulldogs (Georgia and Mississippi State). (Please don't hold any of these affiliations against us!) We live in Athens, GA with the others currently residing in Atlanta and Huntsville, AL.

Since July 2009, many family vacations have been spent here making improvements. We have enjoyed Thanksgiving and Christmas with extended family at this house, so we know that it accommodates large groups well. We hope that our guests enjoy it as much as we do.

Because we have young children, we have tried to make it as kid-friendly as possible, and to provide several things not found in most rentals: a portable crib, full-sized high chair, safety gate, cabinet locks, pool floats and wagons. Our hope is that these items will allow our guests with young children to pack lighter.

R.J. purchased this house in 2009

Why R.J. chose Coastal North Carolina

We love this house because of the size. We used to have to spread out across 2 houses, but the 8 bedrooms allow our extended family to all be under the same roof. It is so relaxing to enjoy breakfast on the deck while taking in the fantastic ocean view. And the house is so close to the beach that we were able to sell our golf cart.

What makes this house unique

Several features set our house apart from most of the others at OIB. First, it is close to the beach and has a great ocean view. The elevator is helpful for bringing in luggage and groceries, and also for the family members who have trouble with stairs. It is one of only a handful of houses on OIB that has a private heated pool. Finally, the house has 8 bedrooms, including 4 king suites.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My entire extended family stayed here in July of 2016 and we loved it! When we arrived everything was sparkling clean, and all the little extra items provided made a huge difference (little things like hand soap in the bathroom, coffee, toilet paper, etc). All the rooms were great and suited our needs - there was ample space for all 19 of us. The house is perfect for all ages - the elevator greatly helped my 98 year-old grandma, and the crib provided was perfect for my 2 year-old daughter. RJ is an incredibly responsive owner - we experienced a few glitches with the TV in the 3rd floor living room, and he responded immediately and sent a handyman to help. The outdoor shower by the pool and the provided wagon (for hauling toys and such to the beach) were huge bonuses. You really don't need to bring any pool or sand toys - there are so many already there! I really hope we can stay here again in the future. The house is every bit as gorgeous in person as it is in the photos - highly recommend! - Jill

Best beach rental property ever! Owner involvement makes the difference.

  • 5 of 5

We are a three generation family group of 14 including my wife and me, our three adult children and their spouses, and our six grandchildren ages 7 to 17. The July 2016 stay was our second consecutive July week at 291 West Second Street, but it was our 38th consecutive year of renting properties during July at Ocean Isle Beach. This house is by far the best we have ever rented. We have reserved a July week again next year.

RJ, the owner/contact, is wonderful to work with. He communicates superbly and he responds positively to suggestions. The house has beautiful views of the ocean and the sound. The house is modern inside and outside. When we arrive the house is spotlessly clean and the beds are all made. There are starter supplies of hand soap and toilet paper in the bathrooms as well as paper towels, dish detergent, dishwasher detergent, and even coffee in the kitchen. The kitchen is well furnished with dishes, glasses, 2 coffee makers, an electric corkscrew, flatware, knives and pots and pans. There were also two bags of ice, one in the kitchen refrigerator/freezer and another in the refrigerator/freezer on the ground level. There is also a beverage refrigerator on the 2nd floor. The full size modern washer and dryer on the 2nd floor includes some detergent and other consumable supplies. The elevator goes from the ground/basement level to all three floors. The swimming pool is very nice and very well maintained.

The house has several smart TV's and a Netflix account. High speed, 300Mbps, Internet and WiFi is available throughout. All TV's have cable service and all bedrooms have TV's. The 70" smart TV in the 3rd floor living area reminds one of a movie screen.

Compared to all other beach rentals we have had in the past including some that were more expensive, 291 West Second Street seems like a wonderful dream. But it is real!

Perfect for Large Families!

  • 5 of 5

I have rented homes from VRBO for many many years and I have never had an owner be as accommodating as R.J. He bent over backwards to make our experience the best it could be. The house is huge! It is decorated beautifully and has everything you could possibly need. The views are amazing from the front of the house and the back. It is a very easy walk to the beach and R.J. had provided tons of beach toys for the little ones. Our family gathered around the pool quite a bit and again pool toys are provided. If you are looking for a wonderful house for your family vacation this it it! Thank you for your hospitality and letting us make wonderful memories in your beautiful home!

Great for Large Groups

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group of families staying for a long weekend and had such a great time! Some of us have small children and took advantage of the baby gear that is supplied with the house--such a great convenience! RJ was great in responding to all of our questions before our arrival. The heated pool was great for the little ones and the adults alike. The beach is a very short walk and close enough we were able to come and go as we pleased. This was everyone's first time to OIB and we will definitely be returning next summer!

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a church retreat here April 15-17 and everyone enjoyed themselves. The home is beautiful and it has a water view from every window! It's only a few steps from the beach and the pool is great! We loved every moment of our time there.

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group of business professionals stay at RJ's place. The home is in great condition, and the upstairs area was perfect for entertaining. We watched the ACC tournament on his large 70" TV and enjoyed every minute of it. RJ is also extremely responsive to all requests and will text, call, or email you soon after you send him a question. I can't say enough great things about this place. My experience with most large home rentals is I am usually disappointed with the quality inside the home. If you stay in this house you will not leave feeling disappointed. It is clear as soon as you enter the home how much attention to detail and pride RJ takes in it. Thank you so much for allowing my group to stay there. We will definitely be back!

This wonderful house is located at family-friendly Ocean Isle Beach, NC. OIB is at the southern-most part of the North Carolina coast, about 40 minutes south of Wilmington. While OIB is a quiet, family beach, the tourist attractions of Myrtle Beach are just 40 minutes to the south. Our house is located on the desirable west end of the island, where the beach is wider but generally less crowded. Public beach access is about 1/2 block from the house.

Golf: There are over 30 championship courses within a 10 mile radius of Ocean Isle Beach, and another 75 courses located within a 30 mile radius. Top rated courses include Sea Trail, The Pearl Golf Links, Tigers Eye, Marsh Harbour, Thistle Golf Club, Brunswick Plantation, Angels Trace, and Oyster Bay Golf Links.

Sea Trail was named to Golf World magazine's 50 Best list for 2009, a list that includes Pebble Beach, Pinehurst, Innisbrook and Doral. It was also named the Top Golf Resort in the South for 2013.

In Golf Digest's 'Best Places to Play' rankings, The Pearl - East Course received 4 stars and the West Course 4.5 stars.

There are 6 local courses that have recently been on the Golf Digest Top 100 Public Courses list: The Dunes, Tidewater, Grande Dunes, TPC of Myrtle Beach, and two at Barefoot Golf Club (Fazio and Dye courses).
