About Wade Hobgood

My wife and family are originally from NC. We have followed my career in the arts and in higher education to California, Wisconsin, Texas, South Carolina as well as North Carolina. We now live in Charlotte, NC but spend time at the beach as much as possible with our two bearded collies. Our two daughters are working professionally in Charlotte- one in accounting and the other is an attorney.

Wade Hobgood purchased this house in 2001

Why Wade Hobgood chose Coastal North Carolina

My family has spent many enjoyable vacations at this home. It is so close to everything we enjoy most- sunbathing, golf, shopping at outlet malls, restaurants, entertainment and walking on the beautiful beach. We also enjoy riding bikes or golf carts to explore the island, visit bird island, or fishing.

Swimming at the beach or the inter-coastal waterway off the private dock.

Outstanding fishing including deep sea, surf and pier (Spot, mackerel, flounder.)

Great restaurants offering everything from white dinner cloth to shorts and flip flops.

Very convenient to Myrtle Beach, SC and Wilmington NC.

Churches in area for all denominations.

Island allows licensed golf carts on roads.

Rentals available for bikes, boats, jet skis, paddle boats, and Harley-Davidson bikes.

Beach Fun!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time Memorial Weekend staying at this house. The kitchen was well stocked and the beds were comfortable. Best of all, it was just a short walk to the beach access. Also, the owner was very responsive and accommodating. I recommend it!

Everything was perfect

  • 5 of 5

The property was CLEAN!!! had the necessary appliances and kitchen goods. The rooms were comfortable, the bathrooms likewise. Being on the canal presented so many alternatives to the beach and the proximity to the beach was easy. We would definitely stay again at Ocean Isle and in this house. We got a good one .

Was by far the nicest beach rental we have ever stayed in

  • 5 of 5

The property was very nice and very clean. Only downside was the boat dock...large benches in the middle and made it difficult getting into and off your boat as well as loading things into boat. Theses could easily be moved back. Hoping whoever buys the home continues to rent! Owner is fantastic about responding to any emails..has done a great job with the remodel. If we were looking to buy a home at the beach would buy this in a heartbeat.

Recent stay at canal cabin, Ocean Isle Beach, N.C.

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, roomy 4-bedroom 2 1/2 bath beach-type house on inlet of Atlantic Intercoastal Waterway a short 1 1/2 block to Atlantic Ocean, via a public access route with showers to remove sand and other debris nearby. The VRBO listing was 100% accurate; when we arrived a cleaning service had several hours previously performed an excellent cleaning of the facility. The owner was very motivated to insure that our stay was enjoyable. We experienced no maintenance nor other problems during our 7-day occupancy. The rental rate was competitive in view of renting a large "cabin" close to the beach during peak summertime and other aspects of the rental process (payment options, cancellation insurance, etc.) were clearly defined and were reasonable.

The living/dining area opens to a porch with ample seating, this faces the Waterway inlet which is approximately 30 yards downhill from the cabin. There is a dock (with 2 wooden benches for seating) which is ideal for fishing or just sitting on the water's edge. The dock is not presently outfitted to anchor a large motorized watercraft nor is there a ladder for easy climbing out of the water after swimming. We did not swim in the canal but noticed other nearby renters doing same, the water does not appear to be over 10' in depth.

The kitchen is adequately furnished and the owner provided ample cooking and dining appliances and implements. There is no garbage disposer but a robust dishwasher and a large refrigerator/freezer which worked very well. The large dining room table was more than adequate for meals, board games, and writing. The living room is well-appointed and Direct TV with DVD players in the living room and all 4 bedrooms is a nice addition. The renters must supply their own linens (bed and bathroom) but the bedding (pillows, blankets, mattresses) were satisfactory. The "widow's watch," accessible from the sitting room adjoining the master bedroom on the upper story provides a great site to sit after dark and gaze at the canal and the sky; there were no chairs there, necessitating carrying porch furniture upstairs for sitting.

A large sturdy picnic table and a gas grill adjacent to the 2-car carport were nice additions. Also the owner has provided an outdoor shower (similar to that near ocean accesses) which is enclosed for privacy. Trash pick-up 3 times weekly during the summer was appreciated.

Overall our experience was very positive and we plan to return in the future.

Great Place near the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week in Ocean Isle Beach. The weather was good and we played golf 5 times. The house was great, plenty of room and nice and clean. Great location with the canal right behind it and the beach only a block and a half away.

Wanted to stay longer!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our 3 adult children and one vizsla stayed here for a long weekend recently. When we travel we usually look for pet freindly lodging since we love to take our vizsla with us. Usually pet freindly rentals are less than desirable but, this lovely spacious beach home pleasantly surprised us. It was spacious and clean. The porch was a wonderful place to relax with plenty of seating. We used the golf cart to explore ocean isle as well as go to the beach which is really a very short walk. We were not ready to leave when Sunday came. We will definitely want to rent this again and for a longer period of time!
