Ocean Isle Beach has a lot going for it; it's the PERFECT beach and the Seawitch is front row! Located close to golf courses, outlet malls, musical entertainment, great seafood, and some of the most spectacular sunsets this side of the Mississippi! Come spend a long weekend or summer week in our comfortable bungalow right on the water where you can sit on the front porch and watch the waves roll in.

This Ocean Front Cottage on OIB is located where the island is the least busy but the pier, puttputt, stores and eateries are a short walk away.

The 'Seawitch', aptly named, because that is what my grandmother said she looked like as she came up out of the water from a swim, is a striking, family aligned, lovingly cared for, bungalow style OCEAN FRONT PROPERTY at Ocean Isle Beach, NC.

This five bedroom bungalow has two bedrooms with one queen-sized bed each, two bedrooms with one queen and one double bed, and one bedroom with two double beds each for a total capacity of 16 plus a infant bed in one of the rooms with two doubles. We do not offer linen service, but we recommend that if you want book linens to contact Angie's Linens at Ocean Isle Beach, NC at 910-575-2788. Book early they are only open M-F 8-6. Or cut your price by bringing your own bed linens and towels.

Each year we do renovations or improvements in the spring. We upgrade the beds and bedspreads on a rotating basis every year, we newly refreshed all of the bathrooms and updated the kitchen. We also put in a new heating and a/c unit, replacing the ductwork, and redoing the ceilings. We also added new floor for the main part of the home leaving the bedrooms carpeted to keep the sand out of your bed. Last spring we tore down the old pier/deck area and added a new one and we painted the home, refreshed one of the shower/tubs, and added a new dining room table which seats at least nine. This summer we added new living room furnishings which we LOVE. We also upgraded the fireplace with a new electric unit you can turn on for additional heat or just turn on the flame for ambiance. (We decorate over the holidays!) We complete projects every year to keep the place looking nice and up to date. Next year it is a new ocean side glass door and a new shower in the bathroom between the rooms with single queen beds. Finally, we will be able to take showers in there without getting iced out when someone turns on water somewhere else!

Constructed in 1979 with the 'old style' beach bungalow in mind, the kitchen, dining area and the living room are in the middle and the bedrooms on the sides of the home. The bungalow has three bathrooms upstairs, a outside enclosed shower downstairs, and a place to rinse off on the pier.

The real luxury of the home though is the front porch and deck area with its rocking chairs, picnic table, and loungers. Feel the ocean breezes flow over you as your cares slip away. Run off the beach and straight up to your bungalow, take a shower in the outside shower, and sit in a rocking chair until you dry off from your swim. The clothes line is usually seen with towels and bathing suits flapping in the wind.

Make yourself some 'Frogmore Stew', throw it out on some newspapers on the sizable dining room table and tell the kids to dig in. Hang up some event lights and dance on the deck to some Jimmy Buffett as the sun sets in the distance. This is the bungalow to take you back to a simpler time!

This home is well supplied with items that many of the units do not include. The kitchen is entirely supplied with enough dishes, glasses, silverware, pots, pans, etc. to feed huge family. My dad thought he was Emeril so you will find all kinds of gadgets in the kitchen drawers. We also have books, games, and movies scattered around in different drawers/places for you to borrow during your stay.

For all you movie buffs and sports enthusiasts, you can sit in the living room and appreciate movies or sports on the enormous HDTV complete with BlueRay DVD Player and surround sound. Look out the window and watch the ocean instead of the commercials!

Wireless Internet and Time Warner/Spectrum Cable are included. There is a flatscreen TV and cable in every bedroom.

Our family has been so spoiled by this beach home that to go anywhere else is a letdown. The location is ideal, you will feel a anxiety let down as you cross over the bridge to the island and transition to 'island time'.

Staying at the family friendly OIB is the BEST place to be, but if you long for some nighttime life and outlet shopping, you are only a few mins. away. Myrtle Beach is only 20 - 30 mins. south, and Wilmington 45 mins. north on Hwy 17. Calabash is known for the best seafood in the nation and it is a mere 10 mins. away. If you want to catch a movie, you can head to North Myrtle Beach. Golfers, there are golf courses all around you. Adventurers you can head out to The Swamp Park on Airport Road to go on a guided ATV or Swamp boat tour or even Zip Line. Historic Southport, NC is only 35 mins. away.

Tricks and tips to get the best rental experience:

Find your perfect rental home:

  • Summer time is high season in the Southport area. To find the best value, try changing your family's Southport vacation week to the Spring or Fall months. May, September, and October offer pleasant weather, less crowded beaches, and greatly reduced traffic. Many vacationers use this method to find larger homes within budget, or to book an oceanfront vacation rental that would otherwise be unavailable during June, July, and August.
  • The earlier you can reserve a vacation rental, the easier your search will be. The best vacation homes are booked early. Reserving your vacation home six - twelve months before your vacation is recommended. Holidays such as Christmas and Thanksgiving are excellent times to search for and book your vacation rental.
  • Hosts and Property managers sometimes offer discounts or promotional rates for veterans and active duty military. Make sure to check with your property manager to see if special discounts are available for your family before you book.
  • Booking websites frequently offer customers an option to add trip insurance. Trip insurance, which normally costs anywhere between 1% - 5% of the base reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for missed trip time as a result of personal medical-related catastrophes or weather disasters, as well as evacuation costs, such as an unexpected hotel or extra gasoline expenses. Trip insurance might be a a life-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your host for specifics.
  • Many rental management companies and vacation rental houses supply Southport area visitor guide magazines which will include special offers, either offered independently by local companies, or through a relationship with the rental management company and the business itself. You can also find Southport visitors guide magazine and coupon books at local gas stations and shopping centers.

Selecting and booking the perfect Southport rental home:

  • Select a designated group leader, select your vacation dates, and select a spending budget.
  • Determine how many bedrooms and the bed configuration your group requires. Ocean Front Home with Spectacular Views - Now booking for the summer of 2024! has 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our Southport rentals search.
  • Precise details about bedrooms and bed counts & types is usually accessible online. Otherwise, email or call the property management company before you reserve the vacation property. Remember that most property listings specify maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes pull-out couches and bunk beds.
  • Visiting for a single event or attraction? If so, use a map search to find nearby properties.
  • Appropriate accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for those with limited mobility. Make certain to inquire about wheel chair entry, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs.
  • If your family is bringing pets, you must book a rental that allows animals. Get details on breed, weight, and type requirements. Be aware that some property managers charge additional pet fees.

Have a fantastic stay:

  • Take a copy of the property manager's contact number and arrival/departure procedures for your rental. Store the host's contact information in your smartphone.
  • To make certain that no damages are linked to your family's stay, make note of any problem areas during arrival. E-mail the rental manager immediately to record any damages. If there is a dispute about legal responsibility later, having a record of concerns and contact attempts will be valuable.
  • Property managers are available to help! Don't be shy to ask any questions during your stay.
  • Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking rules can make a stay significantly more pleasurable. Be a good neighbor. You will increase your chance to make some new local friends, and resident neighbors can be a great resource to find the best local beaches.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Residents can typically point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to find the fresh catch of the day, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for BBQ?
  • Ensure you protect the rental owner (and your stuff!) by locking the rental when you are away, just like you would back home.
  • Double-check the rental property to make sure that you've packed all belongings on check-out day. Check closets, dressers, garages, and bathrooms for hidden belongings. Clean the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Document the condition of the property at check-out. We recommend taking a video during your final walk-through.
  • Remember to leave feedback! Property owners rely on excellent reviews to compel more reservations. They'll be grateful for your review. Alternatively, if something wasn't as described, other families will be thankful you shared your feedback and help them have the best future vacation. Remember to be objective. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the manager could control the issue, and if so, whether they responded reasonably to remedy it.
