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 Ocean Isle Beach
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.

Property is comfortable, with all we needed.
Our family of 4 and pets had a great time at Crane Cottage! The cottage is comfortable, and we enjoyed having the use of all the amenities. The beach at Ocean Isle is the best. This was one of our best vacations, ever! We really appreciate the hospitality.
Thank you very much for your five star review. And thanks to Carolyn and Donna who keep our cottages looking so beautiful. We look forward to serving you again next year.
Wonderful vacation in a friendly community
This house was perfect for our family. The kitchen had everything we needed. We used the pier on a daily basis, the kids really enjoyed catching fish and crabs. The location is perfect with beach access and restaurants just a short drive away. We would definitely stay here again.
Thank you so much for your five star review. We loved serving you and look forward to serving you again on your next trip to Ocean Isle Beach NC and thank you to our caretakers, Carolyn and Donna, who keep our two cottages Crane Cottage, 250580 and Thrush Cottage, 4179937 so clean and beautiful.
Please call, text or email me if you have any questions or we can serve you in any way.
Quiet and comfy
We rented this property in part because it was on the mainland, away from the hustle and bustle. We had a lovely stay.
This house is in an established neighborhood which is quiet and walkable. We spent several nights down at the dock waiting for the deer to come out across the ICW. Days were spent reading, going to the beach, and visiting the small art galleries in the area.
If you are looking for comfort over glamour, this is the place for you!
Thank you for the excellent review. We look forward to serving you again next year. And thanks to Carolyn and Donna who keep both Crane Cottage (250580) and Thrush Cottage (4179937) so beautiful. Thanks again, Mike
Lovely little cottage near the water.
The people who own and look after this property are really nice. Super helpful people who go out of their way to be helpful and accommodating. The property is in a very quiet area, perfect for relaxing. The local people who live near there are good to talk to too.
The property itself has been well looked after and everything works well. It was really nice to be there and I would recommend staying there in a heartbeat.
A couple of recommendations for you when you stay...... buy a $5 crab net and line from store and fish off the pier ......... the crab is really tasty and easy to catch.
Be very careful of the traffic cops on the small roads, if you drive down them and have out of state plates they are likely to stop & ticket you even if you are not speeding ..... be warned, it's a cash grab.
Enjoy the place, it is wonderful!!!
Thanks so much for your excellent review. And thanks to Carolyn and Donna, our caretakers, who keep Thrush Cottage 1 (4179937) and Crane Cottage 2 (250580) so beautiful. We hope to serve you again on your next trip. Thanks, MIke
Loved the house and neighborhood.
We needed a multi-bed place that would allow dogs and this House was perfect. Previously, we had always stayed oceanfront in Cherry Grove but this place sounded interesting. First, it was about half the price for two weeks. It was a house instead of a condo so it was more private and roomy. We didn’t know what being a short distance from the beach would be like, but it forced us to explore all the beaches in the area. The neighborhood with the two docks allowed us to get in our daily “steps” with no traffic and friendly residents though not many staying during the weeks in April. Overall, I would definitely recommend this place. Mike and Carol were both very accommodating, and we enjoyed our stay. Now that we have stayed here we would probably deal directly with Mike instead of going through VRBO.
Thanks for the great review. And thanks to Carolyn and Donna, our caretakers, who keep Thrush cottage 1 (4179937) and Crane cottage 2 (250580) so clean and beautiful. We hope you come again. We look forward to serving you.
Comfort in a great location
I would highly recommend this cottage for folks who like being away from the high dollar busy beach rentals. Not only have I rented this property several times, but have also stayed at the owner's other property. The owner, Mike, is very accommodating and truly wants you to enjoy your stay at his cottages. If there's any problems, he's very responsive!! Both cottages have all the amenities of home and are clean and comfortable! The location is perfect for me...just a few minutes to the Ocean Isle Beach or a short drive to Myrtle Beach or Wilmington.
Thank you so much for the five star review.
We appreciate so much your coming every year. And thanks to Carolyn and Donna who keep our cottages so beautiful.
We look forward to serving you again,
