Heart Key Home is on the ocean with spectacular views. We are located on the upper level of a two story building with all rooms on one level, that includes an elevator for easier access. We feature four large bedrooms with four bathrooms, plus an outdoor shower. The large kitchen with top of the line appliances and double oven which has enough space for creating large family / group meals that will be remembered. There is seating for four at the counter and the reclaimed wood dining table can seat up to 10. There is a TV in the living room, while the seating is focused on the ocean. The open concept allows ocean views from the kitchen, dining and living spaces. The covered porch is an excellent place to watch the ocean and relax in the shade. This home is new to our family and we have put many hours bringing back the beauty. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. (This is the top level of a two unit building). This winter we rebuilt the ocean side deck and replaced the flooring in all the bedrooms.

About Mary Hardtke
This is a family home own by Dan & Vicki Hardtke along with our parents Ken & Mary Hardtke. We reside in MN and WI respectively. We got bit by the Ocean Isle bug when visiting our neighbors that moved from MN to Ocean Isle Beach. We visited during Oyster Fest in 2015 and fell in love with the location. We envision many years of our daughters, friends and family relaxing and creating special memories.
Mary Hardtke purchased this Condo in 2016
Why Mary Hardtke chose Ocean Isle Beach
The views and direct beach access are beautiful. Secondly, the large kitchen and open flow through the dining and living area was exactly what we were looking for.
What makes this Condo unique
Linens and towels are provided. When you arrive, the beds will be made (except the linen service won't make top bunk beds). Towel sets will include a bath, hand and wash cloth per person and a bath mat for each bathroom. We have placed a few of our personal beach items in the storage area, such as a few bikes, beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach sand toys and various balls (football, volleyball..), feel free to use them.

Great ocean view with all the comfort of home
The kitchen in this house is spacious and very well equipped. The refrigerator is huge and held enough food to feed our group of 10 for a week. The furniture is comfortable with a couch you can really lounge on. We loved sitting and rocking on the big covered porch running the length of the house on the back.
The owners are wonderful. There were cookies waiting for us to enjoy. They were in town and came by the second day because the AC system reported to them that it might have a problem. We hadn't noticed anything wrong. While they were there, we showed them some of the rocking chairs were worn out and didn't work well. They replaced them the same day with brand new ones.
The house has everything you need for a great beach stay. There are three new bikes, four beach umbrellas, a beach wagon, boogie boards, sand toys, etc. The shared charcoal grill is a very nice model, not the typical box on a post usually seen.
You have two options for walking down to the beach. The public access is right next to the house and it has no stairs, making wheeled access easy. Taking the path from the gazebo is quicker but be sure to wear shoes as the sand is deep and VERY hot during the day. Little ones can quickly burn their feet. There is a hose at the beach side to wash off sand and another foot shower in the yard as well as the full shower and dressing area downstairs.
We really enjoyed or stay and meeting the Hardtkes. They are such friendly, down to earth people they make you feel so welcome!
Perfect location to beach....Wonderful facilities !!!
We loved our stay.... was a perfect fit for all members of the family. Kids loved the easy beach access.... Pap loved the back deck to watch the waves roll-in and Grandma loved the big kitchen to feed everyone !!!
The Whole family
Great family vacation. The house was wonderful and the weather was good. Love because you can relax without all the hassle of needing to go some place. Everything you need is close by and it is not crowed like the place further south. Will be there next year
great family vacation!!!
whole house was redone and it was beautiful. Kitchen was fantastic.
Our best beach vacation yet!
My family and I just stayed at this property for a second time. We were so impressed with it when we stayed there for a few nights over spring break that we knew we had to come back for a full week over the summer. This home is spacious and beautifully updated. The kitchen and dining area are perfect for big families. We love that the property is fully stocked with beach supplies (beach chairs, umbrellas, toys, towels, paddle board, boogie boards, bikes, etc.). The views of the ocean are breathtaking. It is really relaxing to sit on the porch, feel the warm breeze, and watch the waves. The property owners have been amazing for both of our stays. They are extremely attentive. They even sent us gifts when there was a small delay on the initial linen service. They go above and beyond to make sure each guest has a wonderful stay. We can’t wait to come back to OIB and stay here again.
Thank you so much for your review. I want all of our guest to have that relaxing experience. Hope to see you next year.
Gorgeous setting, wonderful property, better than advertized!
The condominium fit our extended family perfectly. Everyone had personal space and plenty of room to be together. The pictures are very accurate but cannot convey the attractiveness and welcome feeling of the place. There are many extras that make the experience relaxing and enjoyable. First class.
