About the property

8 Bedrooms, 6.5 Baths, Sleeps 20, Private Heated Pool, Elevator

This wonderful house is less than 250 yards from the public beach access. It has 8 bedrooms (including 4 Kings), 6 1/2 baths, and can sleep 20 in beds. The kitchen, living room and main master are on the 3rd floor and have great views. The house has a private pool, which can be heated in the spring and fall. The dual, heated outdoor shower with Poly-Wood decking is convenient for rinsing off after returning from the beach.

In 2017, we put a a new 70-inch Vizio TV in the main living room. In November 2016, we upgraded the 2nd living room to a 65-inch Smart TV. All 8 bedrooms have flat screen HD TVs, several of which are Smart TVs. An elevator serves every floor (not the case in all houses with elevators). The house has wifi through Spectrum's Ultimate 300 Internet and Orbi mesh routers with speeds up to 350Mbps so you can stay connected. There are ceiling fans and tile floors throughout, and a fully stocked kitchen with quartz countertops and a double oven.

Wrap-around decks on each level have tables and chairs and offer great views of the ocean and sound. This house is ideal for large family gatherings, multi-family vacations, and church retreats.

What to Bring: A complete linen package is provided for all of our Summer guests. In the off-season, the full linen package is available for $350 (reduced price available for fewer than 20 guests). We do not provide beach towels or other beach gear. However, 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.

Amenities: The house has a private pool which can be heated for a surcharge of $40/day or $250/week.

In 2017, we added new resort grade furniture to the pool area, with reclining lounge chairs for sunbathing, as well as two tables and non-reclining chairs for pool-side dining. There is a full-sized refrigerator on the ground level to keep your pool drinks cold. We provide a number of pool toys and floats for the kids. The outdoor shower features two shower heads each with hot and cold water, as well as Poly-wood decking (no splinters).

In addition to a collection of Blue-ray DVDs, the house has a Netflix account which can be accessed via the Smart TVs.

The large kitchen is well stocked with service for 20. It is equipped with stainless steel appliances, including a smooth-top 5-burner stove, double oven, microwave, toaster oven, 2 coffee makers, Keurig, Ninja blender, dishwasher, and French-door refrigerator/freezer with ice maker and filtered water. There are plenty of pots, pans, casserole dishes, mixing bowls, muffin pans, etc. Several guests have commented that this kitchen is better stocked than theirs at home.

The house is also equipped with a stackable washer and dryer, as well as an iron and ironing board. There is a clothes line in the carport for hanging wet beach towels and bathing suits.

Recreation: Of course, the main attraction is the beach and there are many great golf courses within 15 minutes (and over 100 in a 20 mile radius of OIB). Our house also has its own private pool (can be heated for a surcharge of $40/day or $250/week). On the island, there is a miniature golf course and tennis courts. You can also rent bicycles or charter a fishing trip. The Museum of Coastal Carolina is also located on the island.

Just off the island, you can find go-cart racing and more miniature golf. Silver Coast Winery is only 15 minutes from the island and offers tours and tastings. Myrtle Beach is only 45 minutes away and has everything from water parks to outlet malls to the NASCAR Speedpark. It is also home to the Myrtle Beach Pelicans, a Class A minor league baseball team affiliated with the Chicago Cubs.

We are at the end of a lightly traveled street, so bike riding is a safe activity. Inside, there are toys and board games and a new Sony PS4 with mostly E-rated games.

Restaurants: There are a number of restaurants on the island, and more on the mainland. We do have a few favorites. For dinner, Roberto's, just off the island, is our favorite. The Bang-Bang Shrimp makes a great appetizer. The fish is always fresh and the pasta dishes are hard to beat. The pizza is so good we often have them prepare 2 that we freeze and bring home. Roberto's also has a full bar.

Calabash, the 'Seafood Capital of the World,' is only 6 miles from OIB. For dinner, we love The Boundary House. Capt. Nance's offers the typical fried fish, shrimp and hush puppies, and the prices are decent.

For breakfast, we like Sarah's in Sunset Beach, but it's small so it doesn't work well for large groups. Our other favorite is the Purple Onion Cafe in Shallotte which has giant pancakes, blueberry biscuits and fantastic raspberry croissants. If you need a caffeine fix, OIB Surf and Java is just off the island in the Lowes Foods shopping center. Rumor has it that Starbucks will be opening a store in the newly built Publix shopping center, also just off the island. We also love The Filling Station in Shallotte for its amazing donuts.

The OIB Fish Company has a rooftop Tiki Bar and is on the island just before the bridge. The Sugar Shack is highly regarded for its Jamaican cuisine, but call ahead because it is usually crowded.

Be sure to check out the link to our website with a 360 degree tour of the house.

About R.J.

My wife and I, along with our sisters, bought this house in July, 2009. Across 4 families, we have 8 children ranging from 16 years to a 4-yr old -- and the first 7 are boys! We are avid sports fans, and represent Bruins (Belmont U.), Demon Deacons (Wake Forest), Tigers (Clemson) and two breeds of Bulldogs (Georgia and Mississippi State). (Please don't hold any of these affiliations against us!) We live in Athens, GA with the others currently residing in Atlanta and Huntsville, AL.

Since July 2009, many family vacations have been spent here making improvements. We have enjoyed Thanksgiving and Christmas with extended family at this house, so we know that it accommodates large groups well. We hope that our guests enjoy it as much as we do.

Our children have grown up at this house, so we have tried to make it as kid-friendly as possible. We provide several things not found in most rentals: a portable crib, full-sized high chair, safety gate, cabinet locks, pool floats and wagons. Our hope is that these items will allow our guests with young children to pack a bit lighter.

R.J. purchased this house in 2009

Why R.J. chose Ocean Isle Beach

We love this house because of the size. Our large, multi-generational family used to have to spread out across 2 houses, but the 8 bedrooms here allow our entire family to all be under the same roof. It is so relaxing to enjoy coffee or breakfast on the deck while taking in the fantastic ocean view. And the house is so close to the beach that we were able to sell our golf cart.

What makes this house unique

Several features set our house apart from most of the others at OIB. First, it is close to the beach and has a great ocean view (but without oceanfront prices). The elevator is helpful for bringing in luggage and groceries, and also for the family members who have trouble with stairs. It is one of only a handful of houses on OIB that has a private heated pool. Finally, the house has 8 bedrooms, including 4 king suites.

Guestbook comments from the owner

All here for wedding. Beautiful house. Beautiful weather for the wedding. Great beach.

The perfect house!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this amazing house for my entire family for the week of July 4th. OIB has a special place in my heart, and this house was a perfect fit for 17 of us!

The bed configuration was excellent for our group. We had six kids, who all loved both bunk rooms. Plenty of space and bedrooms, so nobody was disturbed by other people.

The views were amazing. Loved having both ocean and marsh views. The kitchen was well stocked with things when we got there, which was very helpful. Loved the pool, two living areas, elevator.. so many great extras!

RJ was fantastic to work with. He was very responsive to messages, and questions. He texted me as soon as we were able to get in the house, which was earlier than the guaranteed 4:00 PM time. It was also nice to have Josh (the local contact) when the elevator needed a quick fix. He was also very quick to respond to messages.

Would definitely rent again!

-Elizabeth and Joe S.

We had a great week at OIB!

  • 5 of 5

I had searched specifically for a house with king sized beds and was so pleased to have found this-each couple had a good sized room with king bed and bath.Our 3 oldest grandchildren(2 age 5 & 1 age 4)did well in the bunk bed room and the 3 younger children(3 months,1&1/2,and 3 each had their own room-perfect for nap time etc.Another requirement was a pool and that was nice as well-appreciated pool and beach toys being their for our use.Wonderful and well-stocked kitchen,elevator great for getting groceries in and loading/unloading etc and the air-conditioning worked!!The Beach was a farther walk than anticipated but not a deterrent to renting again...all in all a good time and a special beach house!

This house and owner exceeded our expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

We brought the max capacity of 20 guests but with the large gathering room on the top floor, and the many porches and pool, it was very comfortable and roomy. The private baths, elevator and several extra touches the owners provided made this 5 star! RJ was extremely responsive and helpful with questions and advice. We would definitely recommend this home!

Fantastic house in great location!

  • 5 of 5

We caught a chilly April weekend but not to worry- the heated pool kept the kids entertained for hours. RJ is very responsive and helpful host. House has wrap around porches with great views of the island. The elevator seals the deal- one of our friends is wheelchair bound and that made all the difference. Highly recommend the house for your stay at Ocean Isle.

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.

Top rated courses include Sea Trail, The Pearl Golf Links, Tigers Eye, Marsh Harbour, Thistle Golf Club, Brunswick Plantation, Angels Trace, and Oyster Bay Golf Links.

Sea Trail was named to Golf World magazine's 50 Best list for 2009, a list that includes Pebble Beach, Pinehurst, Innisbrook and Doral. It was also named the Top Golf Resort in the South for 2013.

In Golf Digest's 'Best Places to Play' rankings, The Pearl - East Course received 4 stars and the West Course 4.5 stars.

There are 6 local courses that have recently been on the Golf Digest Top 100 Public Courses list: The Dunes, Tidewater, Grande Dunes, TPC of Myrtle Beach, and two at Barefoot Golf Club (Fazio and Dye courses).
