How are the views you ask? Check out our live view from the front porch.
Beach House Description:
Before there were beach McMansions, there were beach cottages. Originally built in the early 70's three rows back, this cottage is one hurricane from ocean front and two from becoming Young's Reef (thanks in part to inlet dredging). Now available with free Wi-Fi and Dish Network.
If you are looking for modern and/or the bustle of Myrtle Beach, this is not it. Instead, enjoy spectacular million dollar ocean, inlet, and island views from our front deck. Clear views of Holden Beach and Oak Island across Shallotte Inlet, too. How close to the ocean you ask? You can toss a football into the surf from the front yard at high tide. Island's End (a.k.a. Almost Oceanfront) is a well kept, older beach cottage with all of the modern vacation amenities.
This house is called 'Almost Oceanfront' because there is a street in front, then dunes/sandbags, then beach. While not technically oceanfront, the house enjoys all of the unobstructed views of an oceanfront home at a fraction of the price. From time to time lunar high tides, high winds and storms will send ocean water into the street. Not harmful, just a spectacle. For beach dwellers, it is just part of living at the beach.
This cottage is the 5th house from the east end of the island on a dead-end street. Not much traffic. Great for walking, running, biking, fishing, sunning, relaxing and the like. Beach access is a very short walk out the back door , down 3 houses to the 4th Street crossing (yes, it is ok! Please walk on the neighbors lawn. Just stay off our dunes & sandbags!
The Intra Coastal Waterway and new fishing pier is just a few blocks away. Great place to fish, launch a kayak, swim, crab, shell and watch boats and barges. A great new nature/walking trail with long wood bridges along the Intra Coastal Waterway has just been built. Close by groceries, bike and board rentals, restaurants, pubs, shopping and exploring. Close to Sunset Beach and Holden Beach. Our kids love it, yours will too!
