Fond memories (w/more to come!)

  • 5 of 5

My family just spent Thanksgiving together which gave our 4 generations an opportunity to reflect and share our appreciation for the time together, which is hard to do in today's day and age.

For our family, one of our special occasions was our trip to Ocean Isle. We have irreplaceable memories and a hope (fingers crossed) to return this summer, with more of the clan.

As first timers to Ocean Isle, we were thoroughly impressed. The town has a personable feel to it - not too big or spread out. No imposing high rises and no crowding. Our rental "Paradise Found" was amazing!

It's located 50 yards from the beach entrance which is a great, convenient walk. My grandmother of 90 years was able to join us on the beach despite mobility challenges. We were particularly grateful of the size of the beach which gives all families plenty of space to spread out and enjoy a clear view of the beach without having to look or walk through people. The house is well-equipped with amenities to entertain beach goers, plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas so you don't need to bother trying to fit those items in your car when travelling. The wagon at the house was particularly handy in transporting items to/from beach.

The house itself is new, stylish and practical for groups. As I recall, there are TVs in every room, ceiling speakers with zone adjustments, and outdoor speakers with plugin for your favorite tunes. The architects definitely thought through the design well. From the central elevator which is so practical for moving things in/out of the home (as well as the elderly :), to a wine chiller, to rooms with a view of the ocean - it was all complemented with warm beach-themed decor.

Pool time was an unexpected surprise for us because we didn't expect to spend as much time there as we did. But after time in the sun, it proved to be a great place to unwind. One early afternoon, we were met with a cold downpour. However, us adult-kids with our adult beverages didn't let this stop our enjoyment because the pool is heated!

We mostly at at home and had no problem preparing meals in the spacious kitchen, seating the 10+ of us and having all the essentials for preparing and serving the meals. We took advantage of the outdoor grill one evening to prepare surf and turf for the group.

This was the first time in years we had the chance to meet at the beach and we are thankful we had the chance to do so. The owners are professional and responsive.We highly recommend!

This was our 3rd year staying at his house and it does not disappoint.

Perfect for large families!

Walk to the beach is minimal, views are amazing and can't say enough about the pool.

Beach House was Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to OIB for over 20 years. This house and location was the best we have ever had!

The house was so clean and the decor so welcoming. The dining room table fit our entire group which usually does not happen. The furniture in the main living space was very clean and comfortable and again had space for our large group.

The beach access was so close and was a very easy access without a lot of steps which was great for carrying chairs and things to the beach. The beach equipment(wagon, chairs, boogie boards etc) were wonderful and appreciated.

The pool was the largest we have had at a private home and was enjoyed by our entire group.

Our families were in both 311 & 313 and Eric made our rental experience very easy and professional.

We love OIB and the most exciting news for us this week was my niece announcing she was pregnant with their first child! We look forward to next year in this same location to introduce a new little one to the beauty of OIB.

Thank you Eric for allowing us to enjoy such a great week!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review! It was a pleasure to host your group... it's always something special getting everyone together at both properties right next to one another! We are so happy you already decided to come back next summer! Congratulations to your niece! Lots of luck, happiness, and health!

Best Beach House Ever!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent our spring vacation at Paradise Found located in Ocean Isle Beach. We have been spending our vacation at OIB since the 80's. This house is by far the best beach house we have ever rented! The home is beautiful, very clean and located just a few steps from the beach! The home has a beautiful pool, provided very nice beach chairs and a cart to transport all our needed items to the beach. We hope to return again next year and we will definitely rent this home again if available! Thank you Eric for making our stay at OIB the best ever!!!
