Condo Description:

Channel Harbor is a non smoking/pet unit 100% of the time. It is located on the far west end of Ocean Isle Beach, close to everything. It is best described as a small, four building, 32 unit (owner managed) one bedroom condo community situated around a swimming pool. The island is very narrow on the west end with ocean, inlet and waterway on three sides. The ocean dunes are only 300 feet from the pool down a grassy path, 100 feet to the Intra Coastal Waterway and 600 feet from Tubbs Inlet (Sunset Beach). Within walking distance of The Isles Ocean Front Dining. Great place to fish, swim, run, sun, bike, boat. Close to restaurants and shopping. Only 35 minutes from Myrtle Beach. 45 minutes from Wilmington downtown historic district, boardwalk, USS NC.

Great Vacation Value! Spend a week, not a fortune: If you are looking for the bustle and chaos of Myrtle Beach, this is not it. Ocean Isle Beach NC is a great family beach with fantastic vacation amenities…sandy beaches, great golf, fishing, tennis, surfing, sunning, biking, exploring, paddling, boating…you get the picture. Great restaurants, shopping, winery tours and sightseeing. It is also a great place to not do anything at all. Channel Harbor is close enough to the chaos of Myrtle Beach should you choose and just far enough away to relax, unwind and recharge. Comfortable accommodations at affordable rates in a great vacation location. That's what makes Channel Harbor a great vacation value.

Take off your shoes. Get some sand in your shorts. Channel Harbor is located on the very west end of Ocean Isle Beach. Continue west an you fall into Tubbs Inlet. The sand is clean and the beaches are wide. The pool is cool and the deck is inviting. Park your car for the week and pack a cooler with ice. Slather on the sunscreen and grab your towel. No shoes, no shirt, no problem.

We supply Beach Chairs, Umbrella, Gas Grill: The ground floor storage room has all kinds of beach paraphernalia. Kids sand toys, beach chairs, beach umbrella and gas grill. No need to lug that stuff from home or buy it and abandon it. We have you covered!

Available rates & dates are listed on this web site calendar. Please check to be sure that the dates are available before booking or calling.

How to rent our condo:

All it takes is a non-refundable Rental Deposit (applied towards your daily or weekly rental) to secure your dates at the beach! Pay by V/MC/AMX/Discover Cards on-line or by phone.

Pets and Smoking: We are absolutely convinced that your pet is clean, well behaved, perfectly adorable and exceptional in every way possible. However, guests that are specifically looking for smoke and pet free accommodations expect and deserve what we advertise, 100% of the time, without exceptions. This is a smoke-free and pet-free rental. Sorry, we don't make exceptions for any reason.

Sorry, no golf/street carts or trailer/travel homes allowed on premises. No outdoor drop cords.

About Michael S. Young

For our family, this is more than just a second home and investment property... it is quality of life. It is a place to gather and relax with family and friends. Nice enough to be comfortable, not so nice that we have to worry about the place getting trashed. Most of our guests come back as they treat it as if it was their own. We are happy to share our little piece of heaven with you.

Michael S. Young purchased this condo in 1996

Why Michael S. Young chose Ocean Isle Beach

We have vacationed off and on at Ocean Isle Beach for over 50 years, traveling from Michigan in the summers as kids. Now that we live in North Carolina, OIB is our weekend getaway. We love the beach and Ocean Isle still has its allure. Channel Harbor is special because it is located on the extreme west end of the island, with water on three sides (ocean, inlet and waterway). It is a very small condo community of 4 buildings with at total of 32 one bedroom, one bath units built around a pool. Each condo is individually owned and decorated to the owners taste. Our small community is owner managed (not a property management company) and it shows as it is well tended to. It is a great group of owners. Our family loves Channel Harbor and we hope yours will too. Come spend a week, not a fortune and enjoy our slice of island paradise.

What makes this condo unique

Just 300 feet from the dunes, a nice oceanfront restaurant/bar on the way. Easy access to the Intra Coastal Waterway to launch a kayak. Great pool and deck. Free Wi-Fi. Close to shopping, dining and all things beachy. Need another Channel Harbor Condo for friends or family. Every condo is individually owned and decorated to the owners taste. Some are used for summer rentals. We can help arrange additional condos at Channel Harbor for your guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is such a comfortable condo. It is so clean, well kept and stocked for vacation. We made full use of the gas grill. The use of the beach caddy with beach chairs and umbrella was much appreciated. It made walking a short block to the dunes effortless, even for the kids. Could not keep the kids out of the pool. See you next summer.

This is a non smoking, non pet unit (no exceptions). Sorry no boats, trailers, golf or street carts. We try to keep our condo in tip top shape. It is bright, clean and cheery. It is well stocked for cooking and eating. It is located very close to the easy walk, even for small children. Channel Harbor is a small 4 building 32 unit community built around a pool. All units are one bedroom. Great for individuals, couples and small families. The Isles oceanfront restaurant is located on the way to the beach. Sit on the Isles deck and enjoy fantastic ocean views while enjoying great food and a full bar. Great walking, biking, boating, sunning, running, swimming. Our small family loves it. I think yours will too!

Loved it!

We loved our stay at Harbor drive- the condo was nice and clean, everything you need is there and the location to the beach is great! Our family (2 adults and 3 boys) had a wonderful time.

Thanks for everything, we will be back!

Quiet apartment steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week at the beach! There were a half dozen other people in the complex, so it was very quiet and relaxing. Everyone we met was very friendly. We loved that the beach access is right across the street, and the chairs & umbrella were perfect. The kitchen had everything we needed to take advantage of the fresh local fish. We look forward to our next stay here!

Quiet and Comfortable!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying at the Condo at Ocean Isle Beach! It was clean, comfortable and quiet. It was nice to have the chairs & umbrella in the storage closet to use along the beach, saves from packing that in the car. The Isles Restaurant was wonderful just across the street and very good along with Sharky's restaurant near the bridge. We have vacationed here when we lived in NC and still remember it to be a nice family beach, not commercialized. We enjoyed meeting the property manager, Jim...a wonderful person with Southern charm. Thanks for a pleasant stay and would love to visit again.

Owner's Response: While considered mid island, Channel Harbor sits on a sliver of land only 100 feet from the Intra Coastal Waterway, 300 feet to the ocean dunes and 400 feet to Tubbs Inlet (Sunset Beach). Our little sliver of island is chock full of ocean, inlet, waterway and island things to see and do. Sounds like you found my favorite... sitting on the shaded deck of the Isles Restaurant watching the ocean waves and beach fun (with a cold drink). It's a great way to spend a lazy afternoon. The loaded beach caddy (located in the owners closet) makes getting chairs and beach/pool toys back and forth to the beach a breeze... even for kids and old folks. Hope your family can come back and experience our little piece of paradise again. Safe Travels. MSY
