About Shawn Thompson

My grandparents bought their first Ocean Isle home one street over, on Driftwood, in 1968. Both very outgoing and fun, the house was filled with family and friends nearly every weekend, and all through the Summer. It was a great place to grow up! Those were the days of no air conditioning, no cable tv... Swim in the ocean all day, run in with sandy feet and eat fresh local seafood on the porch, listening to the sound of the ocean and jovial conversation.

A few years later, we bought the Isle Plaza house... bigger and with modern conveniences. Oddly enough, our family continued to spend more time on the porches, listening to the sound of the ocean and talking to friends. My grandparents passed away, and my parents continued the tradition. I got married and had two kids, who grew up spending time with their grandparents and parents at the new house! Many wonderful memories have been made here...

My son is now a junior in college and my daughter is a junior in high school. It's quieter than it used to be, but there is still a lot of porch sitting and memory making. We hope you enjoy our house as much as we have.

Shawn Thompson purchased this house in 1975

Why Shawn Thompson chose Coastal North Carolina

Ocean Isle is a quiet island filled with private family homes. You will find the perfect amount of quaint restaurants if you want to eat out, or stay in and cook; the kitchen is equipped with everything you need. Our home has the perfect mix of indoor and outdoor spaces that will suit everyone and every situation. Outdoor porches and patios are great for meals, or quiet, night time parties with friends and family. Soak up some rays on the patio or take the short walk to the beach where you can people watch and enjoy the ocean breeze. The den, dining, sun room area is a large open area perfect for the entire family to hang out together.

What makes this house unique

Plug in the lights on the back deck, sit back and relax with a beverage or look out onto the inlet and watch for fish jumping and crabs scampering with the kids. Take a deep breath, and feel that fresh air rejuvenate you...


Ocean Isle Beach is a quiet island of beautiful private homes. Not yet touched by all the commercialism of many larger nearby beaches, it's the perfect spot to spend a relaxing, peaceful vacation.

Great house!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is great! It was clean and one of the best stocked houses we've ever stayed in. There are spices, so you don't have to bring a bunch or buy a bunch for the week. Just use what's provided and buy if something runs out. It has tons of pots and pans, books, movies, games, etc. It is beautifully decorated and has a lot of character. We loved the hammock! Thanks. The only thing that might improve things is to have more utensils (forks, etc) so that we wouldn't have to handwash or use the dishwasher before it's full. Also, be aware that even though this is kinda on the canal, there is no dock. I neglected to look for that specifically and my family was a little disappointed that they didn't get to go crabbing, etc. Nothing misleading in the description on vrbo, just something to be aware of. It's a block from the beach.

What A House!!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 stayed at this property this past Fall and absolutely loved it. The house is nicely decorated and the house was immaculate when we arrived from the cleaning staff. The owners were very attentive and know how to treat their booked guests. We loved sitting on the back porch in the evenings and sipping a cocktail and our kids loved the house too. Also the beach is just a short walk and Ocean Isle has some wonderful restaurants and shops to go to. We will be back next year and have already reserved our spot!!

You'll love it!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful spot where I have spent many enjoyable hours. You will feel right at home the minute you walk in. The back porch overlooks the waterway and is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the breeze, the birds and the peaceful atmosphere of Ocean Isle Beach. The bedrooms are roomy and comfortable and are on two different levels. The living room is spacious and the dining area seats 8 very comfortably. There is also a wooden patio beneath the house for outdoor grilling and dining, a great place for a party! Another big plus, this house sits on a larger lot so you actually have room for games, etc. (and for extra parking). You will enjoy your vacation here and will definitely want to come back again!

A laid back beach get away

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at this beach home many times over the last 14 years. It has great views off the back porch over looking the intercostal waterway as well as a great congregating/grilling area under the house and off to the side that provides shade but you still can get the ocean breezes! A public beach access is within 2 minutes walking distance and take your bikes or rent them on the island and go down to the ice cream shoppe! The location of the beach house is where I would call the quiet part of the island there is definitely a large yard for parking and playing. I've been able to make great memories at this beach house and I'm sure you will too!
