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 $250.00 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 Coastal North Carolina

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 manager

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.

Ocean Isle Beach Vacation Condo. A Great Beach Value For Couples & Small Famlies

A perfect place for our young family!

  • 4 of 5

We loved this condo- the sleeping arrangements worked out great for our young 4 kids and 2 adult family. The storage room was filled with great beach things to use- wagon, umbrellas, floats, toys!

Our only issues were with the keys. The key box on the front door wouldn't work at all. The box on the storage facility wouldn't accept the code we were given. The property manager gave us another code, so we got the keys out of the storage room box and used those all weekend. There were also some sheets left in the washer and dryer, and some clothes left in the closet when we arrived.

Our only suggestion for improvement would be to put screen/netting around the balcony to make it safer- our 1 and 2 year olds could have just slipped right through the bars.

Thank you for a wonderful stay! We loved it and the close walk to the beach! The pool was great! Property manager was very kind and helpful!

Clean, family friendly with easy beach access

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay despite the fact it rained 2 of the 3 days we were there. The condo is a short drive to the movies and area shopping.If you bring cards/board games, there is plenty of space to play on those days going to the beach is questionable. On our one sunny day, the beach was great: an easy walk, clean, and not too crowded. This was a comfortable and affordable place to stay.

Owner's Response: We are glad to hear that our condo was comfortable and affordable and that you enjoyed your stay. If we could hold off the rain, we would. Lots of fun things to do, see and explore rain or shine. Hope you come back again soon. Safe travels.

This one is a gem. Great vacation amenities

  • 5 of 5

The owner and owners people were always very attentive and prompt. The condo was better than advertised in all aspects... comfort, cleanliness, internet, beach chairs and toys... you name it, they thought of it. Pool is kid friendly. Use of the sea kayak in the Intra Coastal Waterway was great fun. 5 stars!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. First guest of the season or last, we try hard to keep our place in the same tip top shape. This is our sixth season renting our Channel Harbor condo and we have put together a great team of cleaning and maintenance people that do a great job insuring our guest enjoyment and comfort. It also helps that we have great (returning) guests that treat the place like it was there own. If ever you have a suggestion to help us make your stay more enjoyable, please let us know. Safe travels! Michael

Family beach weekend

  • 3 of 5

This condo fit everything we were looking for...it was comfortable for our family of 6 and a close walk to the beach. Our only disappointment at all was the cleanliness of the condo. It didn't seem like the bathroom had been cleaned at all. (There was leftover hair in the drain). Other than that, we had any supplies needed already there (cleaning, kitchen stuff) so that made up for it to us. We would stay again!

Owner's Response: We love to hear that you would stay again! Thanks again for your review. Our satisfied guests are our best sales force! On average, a satisfied guest tells three folks, a dissatisfied guest tells 11. We work hard to insure that our end of season guests find our condo in the same tip top shape as our early season guest. Sorry if it was not up to standards. Had we known about a cleaning discrepancy, we would have been happy to send the crew back to correct the problem... and to insure it did not happen to the next guest. Glad that you and your family got to enjoy our island escape. Safe travels.

Notes:
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 ocean...an 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!
