About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Welcome to Ocean Isle Beach and our newly renovated Starboard by the Sea Condo. Ocean Isle is one of the southern most beautiful and unique barrier islands of North Carolina. It is situated a short distance south of Wilmington, N.C., and a short distance from Myrtle Beach, S.C. There is so much to see and do around Ocean Isle, that you will not want to leave. Ocean Isle is approximately 25 miles to all the shops at Barefoot Landing in N. Myrtle Beach and approximately 40 miles to one of two Tanger Outlets in Myrtle Beach. Plenty of shopping, and some of the best seafood you will ever have is 15 minutes up the road in Calabash, NC.

Starboard by the Sea is beautiful, family owned condo on the luxurious west end of OIB. It has fantastic views of the waterway and marsh life. Relax after a long day while sitting on your front porch watching the breathtaking sunsets that OIB has to share with you. Watch the graceful boats as they meander along the Intracoastal Waterway. The condo is newly renovated with new refrigerator, new dishwasher, new TV in den and master bedroom, new hardwood floors throughout, a new king size bed has replaced the queen in the master bedroom and 2 new queen size beds replaced the fulls. We have added 2 rocking chairs to the deck for enjoying the view as well as a small bistro set for outside eating, and we have also added a large outside umbrella for use in the bright sun. It has security key access to 3 community pools, one of which is ocean front. There are tennis courts and grills for your use. This 3 bedroom condo has 1 king, 2 queen and 2 twin beds, 2 full baths and has all the amenities of home. Here is a list of just a few:

Perfect for the occasion!

  • 5 of 5

1st timers to OIB for a family wedding, the accommodations were perfect and very comfortable. Loved the view on either side of the condo and close to pretty much everything we needed. Would definitely stay here again.

Flowers July 2016 Stay

  • 4 of 5

While we had a great time and enjoyed our stay with the beautiful views, there were a few points of concern:

- Bathrooms outdated (mold in master shower and shower curtain was very moldy, drain in shower was clogged)

- Kitchen outdated

- Only one electric outlet worked in the double-bed bedroom with attached bath

- Washer did not work well (literally chewed a towel)

- Dryer did not dry

On a positive note:

- The owner was very responsive when the lock box wouldn't work at arrival

- Air conditioner worked well (on a very hot July week)

- Great layout inside condo

- Nice, quiet condo complex

Owner's Response: Michelle, Thank you for your response. I wish I could disagree with you, but sadly you are correct about the bathrooms being outdated and we have had an issue with one of the showers dripping, which causes the bottom of the shower curtain to mildew. The owner has been doing upgrades on the unit over the last 2 years, (den furniture, king size bed, queen beds, new flooring) as funding allows. The next project will be the bathrooms and the kitchen. I'm sorry for the experience with the washer/dryer; these units have since been replaced. I hope you will give us another try as we would love to have you stay with us again.

Excellent Property!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The property is on the top floor with excellent views in all directions - the sunsets were amazing! It is also just a short walk from the beach. The owner is very accommodating and proactive in her communication - the clothes washer was being replaced during our stay, so she ensured that we knew all the details (of which there were no inconveniences). The condo is laid out very well - plenty of room between the three bedrooms, and my daughter and her five friends really enjoyed eating at the large kitchen table each day. There are also two tennis courts and a very nice pool. Parking is also convenient, with space for two cars.

While we really enjoyed the condo, I cannot say enough about the owner. She is a very caring person and will do all possible to ensure one's stay is very pleasant. Mission accomplished!!!

Great Location! Needs TLC!!

  • 3 of 5

The location overlooking the lowlands are very nice as the tide waters come in and out. It is NOT on the inter coastal waterway, that is about 300 yards away and you can't really see it that much. It is a very quiet location which for us was great. Great sunsets over the water , if it's not too hot though. About a 5 minute walk to the beach, pool nearby. The king bed was very comfortable, we did not use the other rooms. The laminate floors are nice throughout instead of carpet. This place has the potential to be excellent with a little TLC. Here is the not so good: The rusty shower shelves in the showers needs to be thrown away. The shower curtain hangs down so far it was moldy. Not cleaned too well, hair around molding in bathroom. No extra trash bags so we could take trash out daily. Used supermarket bags. Had a couple of dishwasher detergent packs so we did not have enough to hook up dishwasher before we left. WE could NOT even sit outside on the deck because we had no umbrella. Notified Melissa, nothing done about this. Also the outdoor wicker furniture that is in the living room is THE most uncomfortable chair I ever sat on. It is outdoor furniture! Like I said with a LITTLE TLC this can be an excellent condo. Again great location, just needs some work.

Owner's Response: Randy, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I greatly appreciate it when guests let me know when something is not right. I am sorry the outside umbrella was broken. It was mentioned to my handyman to stop by and fix.; however, I let him know that you thought it might be a lost cause. As for the rusty shower caddies and mildew on the shower curtain, both of those issues have been resolved as of today. As for the wicker couch/chair, they are actually indoor pieces, but they are in the works to be replaced. I am glad you and your wife enjoyed the views and short walks to the beach. I hope you will consider staying with us again in the future.
