About Michael Healy

I am a retired Montgomery County Maryland School Teacher. I love Ocean Isle Beach for the beach, fishing, golfing and kayaking in the marshes along our inter-coastal waterway where I like to fish and take lots of photos.

Michael Healy purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Michael Healy chose Coastal North Carolina

The community has two piers and a boat ramp which we love to use. It is surrounded by beautiful beaches and golf courses. The people are warm, friendly and helpful.

What makes this cottage unique

Great fishing off our piers, excellent boat ramp, Bricks Landing Gold Course directly across the street.

Clean, quiet, dog friendly, great area

  • 5 of 5

This rental is in a nice, quiet area on the inlet and with a 5 minute drive to the beach! Beautiful home overall and we loved that it was dog friendly! Everyone in the neighborhood was friendly as well! We had a wonderful week there and will definitely book again!

Cute cottage

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for a week in March while some work was being done at our house. Mike was very accommodating as we wanted a Sunday to Sunday rental and he graciously agreed to it. The neighborhood was quiet, after all, March is not prime time. Great location, a short walk to pier. Mike has a book with everything you could possibly want to know which is very helpful. The beds were comfy, all appliances worked. We would definitely consider staying here again.

The cottages this owner offers are warm and welcoming; just like having a home away from home!! I have been a repeat customer for several years and thoroughly enjoy the convenience of this cottage! The location is perfect; away from the noise often associated with rentals on the beach, yet close enough to be at several of the Brunswick Beaches in a few minutes!!! I also enjoy having use of the piers on the Intracoastal Waterway and enjoy just sitting there early morning with a cup of coffee and some reading material! I highly recommend a visit to the cottage, you will not be disappointed!!!

Excellent pet friendly cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Crane Cottage. The house had everything we needed for an "at home" feeling. The fishing docks/piers are within easy walking distance of the cottage and we caught some interesting fish (Flying Fish--aka "Sea Robins", puffers, some whiting and croakers. The screened in porch was a great place for the pooches to hang out. Home is nicely maintained and cleaned by Carolyn, who lives very nearby and was available for any questions we had about the area. Highly recommend Crane Cottage for anyone with pets who likes to fish! We are already booking for fall of 2016!

Absolutely fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at thrush cottage and I just have to say it blew my expectations out of the water,very close to everything but still has privacy. The house is very homey and hopefully will be available for rent next year! Mike is very easy to work with and is a great renter! Carol also is very close by just an case of any issues!
