Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina
You cannot stay closer to the beach than this! Enjoy this oceanfront unit on the corner with windows and ocean on two sides. You see sunrises *and* sunsets on this east-west trending barrier island. Ocean Isle Beach (OIB) is fun and relaxing with plenty to do yet without the crowds of the larger beaches.

We had a wonderful week right on the beach. Could not have hoped for anything better. The condo had everything we needed and the location was the best. Will definitely be back.

Management response:

Thanks so much David! I am so happy you enjoyed yourself and that we will see you again!!

We just got back from a weeks stay at OIB. We loved it! When you walk in the door the colors greet you, beach colors, bright and cheerful, and a large sliding glass door looking right out to the beach. The unit was neat and clean, well equipped, nicely furnished, comfortable mattresses and living room furniture. The location of the...

This trip to Paula and Tim's OIB Dream was highly anticipated and a little iffy because of the expected storms, but we went ahead and weren't disappointed by either. The storm kept us in for a couple days, but wasn't near as bad for us as it was for others. Then the sun came back out in all its glory...

Management response:

Thanks for the wonderful review Jake! We really appreciate your business and your great attitude toward the weather (both anticipated and actual). Hopefully you will come back again!!

Additional Rate and Availability Information
It should be set up so that you pay half now and half closer to arrival.

Summer season rentals (the week of Memorial Day through the week of Labor Day) are from Saturday to Saturday only. Rentals outside the shoulder and high seasons are flexible, so if you are interested in renting between mid September and mid April -- other than holiday times -- contact me, and we will work out a deal for you!

12.75% occupancy and state sales tax is in addition to the weekly rent listed above, and there is a $60 housekeeping check fee. A refundable $200 safety and security deposit is required, held by Flipkey, and returned 30 days or less after your departure date, assuming no damage to the unit :-) . Flipkey charges a percentage as a booking fee. They charge me a fee too.

About the neighbourhood
Ocean Isle Beach (OIB) is a lovely, laid-back, family-oriented beach. It is an east-west barrier island, so you have fantastic sunrises *and* sunsets over the ocean. OIB is close to Wilmington, North Carolina and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Tidal channels between the island and the mainland are good for kayaking and other boating. There are restaurants and shops on the island and a large, very nice grocery store right before you cross over to the island. The road on the mainland also has many restaurants, thrift shops, and antique stores. There is something for everyone at OIB!

Our condo is located in A Place at the Beach I, a small condo complex located at 277 West First St. on OIB. The complex has a pool and private beach access. Please check out the map and the photos for m...
