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.

My family and I had a wonderful week at Thrush cottage. We had plenty of room for the four of us and the beds were very comfortable. We loved the privacy and the back deck was amazing. We enjoyed the two fishing piers as we did alot of fishing and actually caught fish. Thanks so much for sharing your lovely cottage with us.

Crane Cottage in Ocean Isle North Carolina

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of five and the house was just right for us. The house is a few years old however, the Air Conditioning worked really well and I would guess the heat would be the same.

The first Sunday we were there we went to the Brunch at Bricklanding Golf Club. I felt the cost of the meal was just a little more than going to another in-named buffet restaurant. But oh so nice. It was a great way to start our vacation. I highly recommend it.

The house has private fishing pier rights on the International Waterway.

My husband and son-in-law are avid catch-and-release fishermen. They caught Sea Bass Stripes, Blowfish, Croakers, Spot, Garfish (which they re-named the ugly fish). They even saw a porpoise cashing something down the water way. The Ocean Isle Pier is only a short distance away and they tried it out for fishing as well.

For those who like to shop there are many quaint shops and antique stores from Sunset Beach, Calabash, Supply, Ocean Isle Beach, Shallotte , and Southport.

Through out the summer many of the shore towns have live entertainment at least once a week. I'm sorry to say we didn't go to any of the concerts.However, I have heard they are very good.

Crane Cottage is in a more residential area than a tourist vacation spot. The area around the cottage is very quiet and relaxing. There are two porches with table and chairs. One in the back of the house and a screened in one in the front. Crane Cottage may be in a quite area, however, it is also in a good proximity to the more active Shore Life. The best of two worlds.

Another great year! We have been at Thrush and Crane Cottage! Both have been perfect for us. The family and four legged kids are all comfy, at home. So close to the water, fishing, and golf! We will see you again next year! Thank you!

Owner's Response: We always appreciate when a customer tells us about a problem so we can fix it right away. 1. Mrs. B said the showers handles looked old. We replaced the shower handles and shower heads in both showers. 2. Mrs.B said there were ants on a counter. We explained that when it rains at the beach we sometimes get insects trying to come inside. We sprayed the outside foundation and sprayed the inside of the cabinets. 3.Mrs. B said their was a door handle loose on the bathroom door which made it impossible to use the bathroom. We tightened the door handle screw. 4. Mrs. B said there was a tear on the couch pillow. We agreed and replaced the entire couch. 5. We gave Mrs. B a $100 refund because the cottage was not as perfect as it should have been on the first day her family arrived. 6. When her husband dropped off the keys Carolyn, our caretaker gave him the $100. Mr. B. said to Carolyn, I don't know what my wife was upset about, I thought it was a very nice cottage and we had a wonderful week." And he took the $100 with him. We are confident we did everything we could to correct any problems and look closely at our best practices to see where we can improve. We are grateful that all of our customer's five star reviews make this review the exception.

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!
