Our family purchased this wonderful house in July 2009. It has a reverse floor plan with the main living room, kitchen and master bedroom on the top floor. Though we have ocean views from all levels, it is this top floor that offers the best views. The deck has tables and chairs so you can relax here with your morning coffee or evening beverage. The house is less than 250 yards from the beach access.
In Spring 2013, we remodeled the main living room to incorporate additional built-in bookshelves and a wall-mounted 70-inch LED Smart TV. In Spring 2014, we added new quartz countertops and a tile backsplash in the kitchen, replaced all 3 air conditioning units, and put in a new full-size, stackable washer and dryer.
The house has 8 bedrooms (4 Kings, 2 Queens, and 2 bunkrooms), 6 1/2 baths, and can sleep 19 in beds. All bedrooms and both living rooms have flatscreen TVs. Three of the four Kings and both Queens have private bathrooms. The other King shares a Jack-n-Jill bath with one of the bunk rooms. The top floor master has a tiled shower and separate tiled tub, as well as a double vanity.
There are other houses that sleep more people, but they do so by cramming four or more people in each bedroom. We love our children, but we prefer not to share a bedroom with them. We've tried to provide an environment where our guests can enjoy a little bit of privacy, rather than be stacked on top of one another.
Both living rooms have wall-mounted LED Smart TVs (70” and 46”), and the house has expanded cable with hundreds of HD channels. A house Netflix account can be accessed via any of the Smart TVs. There is an elevator that serves every floor (not the case with all houses that have elevators), incredibly fast 100MB secure wireless internet (password provided), ceiling fans and tile floors throughout, and a fully stocked kitchen. The wrap-around decks on each level have plenty of chairs and offer great views of the ocean, the sound, and the setting sun.
We have a private pool which can be heated in the spring and fall. Around the pool, we have a number of lounge chairs for sunbathing and another table with chairs and an umbrella for poolside dining. We have a second table and chairs in the pool area located under the shade of the deck above. We provide a number of floats and toys for use in the pool. Additionally, we have an enclosed, outdoor double shower with hot water and poly-wood floor (no splinters).
Our guests enjoy access to The Islander Beach Club from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Within the Club, The Isles restaurant offers a full bar and restaurant for oceanfront dining. Our Islander membership also allows our guests year-round access to the nearby tennis courts.
The house is child friendly, with a variety of games, toys, and coloring supplies. We also provide a portable crib (mattress dimensions: 37.5 x 24” x 1"), a full-sized high chair, a safety gate, cabinet locks, and outlet covers.
We are less than 250 yards from the beach access, which is one of the few beach access points on the island that has a ramp instead of stairs. You can pack a little lighter, as we provide an all-terrain Radio Flyer wagon, Wheeleez Beach Cart, and rolling cooler for transporting kids, beach chairs, and beverages, respectively, to and from the beach.
This house is ideal for large family gatherings, multi-family vacations, wedding parties, and corporate or church retreats.

This wonderful house is located at family-friendly Ocean Isle Beach, NC. OIB is at the southern-most part of the North Carolina coast, about 40 minutes south of Wilmington. While OIB is a quiet, family beach, the tourist attractions of Myrtle Beach are just 40 minutes to the south. Our house is located on the desirable west end of the island, where the beach is wider but generally less crowded. Public beach access is about 1/2 block from the house.
