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.

Wonderful Ocean Front
Really loved our stay at Ocean Isle Beach. The property is beautiful and has a wonderful view of the ocean. Perfect to sit on the porch and enjoy the warm weather.
The elevator made the stay on the upper level good, especially unpacking. Clean cottage and owners were very pleasant. We will stay again when going to Ocean Isle Beach.
We had a wonderful time on our vacation. Mary's condo was clean and close to everything my family did. Plus when I had any kind of question, Mary answered almost immediately ans helped every way we could. We are already planning our vacation here next year!
Loved the stay but the weather didn’t play nice!
This is a beautiful home. The owners were quick to address any concerns that we had.
The porch was a wonderful gathering place.
There were a few things less than ideal. The master bedroom has no television- in fact only one bedroom does. The master bathroom shower head needs replacing. I addressed both of these matters with the owner and feel sure that this will be remedied.
The gazebo is shared with the downstairs renters. We really couldn’t use it because their stuff was everywhere.
The elevator is less than ideal, but as long as everyone follows the directions on how to operate it, it works fine.
The kitchen and living room are very spacious.
Great beach house!
This was a wonderful beach house. It had a well equipped kitchen with a double-wide freezer/refrigerator, double ovens and a microwave. It has an open floor plan with ample seating, a large dining table and a kitchen island with stools. The 4 bedroom floor plan worked well for our family. The back porch was equipped with a picnic table and rockers that gave us a great view of the beach. The outside shower worked well for cleaning up as we came back from the beach. The backyard walkway gave easy access to the beach over the dunes with storage at the cabana. The adjacent public access was not a problem and gave our additional families easy access to the beach where we set up each day. Access to the causeway, shops and restaurants was just minutes away. We would definitely consider renting this beach house again.
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 !!!
