About Rich Buchanan

We moved to Charlotte in 1990. Originally from Missouri, we wound up in NC after moving around during a long career with Eastman Kodak. We decided to stay here because North Carolina has great weather, beautiful beaches, lovely mountains, and many fabulous universities. We have three wonderful kids, one daughter-in-law, one son-in-law and a precious granddaughter.

Rich Buchanan purchased this house in 1999

Why Rich Buchanan chose Coastal North Carolina

We came to Ocean Isle Beach for the first time in the Summer of 1990 and we have come to OIB every Summer since. It is a wonderful family oriented beach, close enough to Wilmington and Myrtle Beach that there is something to do for everyone. In 1999 we were fortunate to be able to build this beach house that has provided many great family memories.

What makes this house unique

Our home is perfect for a vacation week. Beth takes care of keeping the house up to date and stocking the kitchen as if we are staying for the week. I take care of making the outside a great place to hang out; a back yard with lighted horse shoe pits and a grill, carport with an Ipod-ready stereo system, hammock, picnic table, and a custom made "Isle Be Chillin" corn hole set. Summer Place is unique in that it has an owners' and guests' only swimming pool that is a 1-2 minute walk from our house. Across the street from Summer Place is a Public Access walkway to our beautiful beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Absolutely wonderful! Thank you so much for allowing us into your home for the week. We can not wait to return!

One of our best beach houses and the best equipped!

  • 5 of 5

One of our best beach vacations ever! The house was great and the owner was very responsive. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything you could possible need! The. Horseshoe pits were fun too! We so enjoyed the front porch which had a lot of shade most of the time. The wagon coolers were an added. Bonus!!

Great House, Perfect Location!

  • 4 of 5

The house was just great. Plenty of room for multiple families. The walk to the beach was only a couple of minutes and the pool was even closer.

We found the house clean, and the owner was helpful. He even had a bottle of wine ready when we arrived. We would definitely return to this house.

Great vacation in a great house

  • 5 of 5

The location, Ocean Isle Beach, was fantastic. It provided everyone with something to do. Play golf, go to the beach or go deep sea fishing. The house was great. It was clean, modern and had all the comforts of home. Close to the beach and community pool. In addition, having full bathrooms in each of the bedrooms was especially nice. We were definitely not disappointed with our selection and would highly recommend this house and location to anyone who wants to have a great vacation.

Relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed the week at "Isle Be Chillin". Great place to relax, enjoy the pool, walk the beach, and visit locations like Myrtle Beach and Southport. The house was very clean and well appointed with everything needed including movies, books, games, hammock, etc. Very short walk to the pool and the beach. Short drive to rent a boat, rent a jet ski, take a fishing trip, or ride a zip line. Rich the owner was great to work with and extremely responsive. Rich's "Welcome Book" contains great recommendations for things to do and places to eat (not one of the eating recommendations disappointed).
