About Bob and Sharon Purcell
Bob and Sharon welcome you to their home. We live in the mountains of Western North Carolina. Growing up and living most of our lives in the mountains and now building on the best little island in North Carolina has given a new meaning to the term; "Mountains to Sea!" We have three grown children and two precious grand children who always welcome an invitation to come to the coast. Bob attended UNC-Chapel Hill and Sharon attended UNC- Greensboro while their children keep the tradition of attending state schools with degrees from NC State and Appalachian State.
Bob and Sharon Purcell purchased this House in 2017
Why Bob and Sharon Purcell chose Ocean Isle Beach
This home is a dream come true! After many years of traveling and exploring different parts of the country we decided to build a home where all our children could come and enjoy each other and have fun doing things we all love. Our location on Ocean Isle is perfect with easy access to the beach and boating. The gorgeous views will keep you wanting to come back for more.
What makes this House unique
If you ever have loved sunsets then this house is for you! It's a tradition no matter what time of the year to stop whatever you are doing and come to view the sunset each day. It is truly a thing of beauty as it sets over the Ocean Isle bridge and makes you thankful for each day you have to enjoy this beautiful world. Consider yourself lucky to have an open view of the green marshes on this large open canal.

Wow! The loveliest home we’ve ever stayed at. Couldn’t be more perfect.
Perfect! If your looking for the perfect beach house , this by far exceeds any other. We were blown away! The decor to the endless amenities that the house provided made everything so enjoyable. The fact that we could drive our boat across the canal to Sharkys to eat was so convenient, and how fun it was that you had the option to kayak if you chose. The owners truly out did theirselves., making sure we were comfortable and very available for any of ours concerns. Super, super home. Sometimes you find a home that just checks all the boxes. Pool, elevator, gourmet kitchen, boat dock, outdoor entertainment area. This is it! Can’t wait to stay again. Thank you, sincerely, the Hackett’s.
The Home is Gorgeous and the view is to dye for.
Everything in this home was very well thought out. Spacious, comfortable and in the perfect location to get anywhere. Great view of the waterfront activities across the marsh and a spectacular sunset every evening.
A fantastic experience.
A must visit!
We have been traveling to OIB for many years and are thrilled to have found this gorgeous home! Well equipped with everything we needed from kitchen to outdoor activities. The pool was great for kiddos and the outdoor tv and bar kept the adults well entertained too! The dock offered great swimming in the canal and paddle boarding.
We rented a golf cart that made jumping to the beach a breeze (2 min ride) there was actually more parking for golf carts than regular vehicles!
Walking distance to restaurants, putt putt and a great children’s museum and playground kept us busy all week!
Can’t wait to come back next year!
We had a great fishing weekend at this brand new home. The dock was perfect for bringing our boat and we had some great catches which allowed us to use the fish cleaning station! Quick access to the ocean through Shallotte inlet was very convenient. Don’t miss the oib fishing center and Sheffield’s - inlet view has great food and will cook your fresh catch.

The town of Ocean Isle has an amazing playground for little ones to enjoy and is located just a short walk from our home near the Coastal Museum. The Coastal Museum is an interesting venue offering programs for children and adults. The Turtle Talks every Tuesday at the Community Center are free and are usually a treat for children. If visiting during turtle times make sure you search out the turtle nests along our beaches and join in the marvel of these creatures. Ocean Isle is a Sea Turtle Sanctuary.
