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.
