About Dylan & Connie Styers

Our family lives in Greensboro, North Carolina. We have three wonderful children who recently completed college and moved out into the real world.

Why Dylan & Connie Styers chose Coastal North Carolina

Ocean Isle Beach is the perfect family vacation area. You can drive 45 minutes South to Myrtle Beach, SC or 45 minutes North to Wilmington, NC where there are historic sites, large amusement parks, Calabash seafood dining, or concert and musical attractions. The weather is comfortable anytime of year whether you are taking a summer vacation or looking for a fall getaway destination. Ocean Isle Beach is a secret among the locals- not too busy and not too remote.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy the white sandy beach or stroll 1/4 mile to enjoy the scenic inland waterway canal. This is nature at its BEST! Search for seashells, fish on the water's edge, swim, snorkel, or just relax in a lounge chair calling your name. 'Whata' Gift' holds fun and excitement for ALL ages.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I have been renting this house for several years and hope to for several more. It is so convenient that the bed linens and towels are provided and we don't have to pack them. There are plenty of kitchen supplies if you cook at the house. There's a grill and a couple of bikes available. We have found the owners to be very responsive should we need anything. We plan to be back next year.

Best way to spend my birthday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this home! Perfect location, only steps away from the beach! The master room has gorgeous views of the ocean.

While at the home we had a question and the owner replied immediately.

We're already discussing our next trip.

Thank you for sharing "What a gift" with us!

Absolutely wonderful !

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with "What a Gift" ocean front beach house. The house was great for our family of 14! The 6 children were able to sleep in one bedroom and the other 4 bedrooms were perfect for the adults. The colors and decor in the house were really great! The beds were so comfortable and having the linens and towels provided was a definite plus. Both of the side decks were used and so nice to sit on! We went during Hurricane Hermine which was quite interesting - I was a little worried but Connie reasured me with any questions I had. She also worked with us on our check in and out hours which we appreciated very much! I would reccomend this house to anyone! We loved Ocean Isle and look forward to returning😎򓠊

Thank you Connie & Dylan

Perfect Location for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Ocean Isle, and we instantly fell in love with the town and What A Gift!! The views from this house (especially the fabulous porches) were amazing! The house is stocked with just about everything you could ever need and the space fit our group of 11 perfectly!! Connie was incredibly helpful (during both the planning and while we were there)! My 86 year old mother-in-law checked taking an island helicopter tour off of her bucket list!! Many wonderful memories were made and we would definitely visit again! Thanks for a wonderful place to stay!
