Feels like you are right on the sand! AWESOME VIEWS! Top floor, corner unit direct oceanfront! Lovely two bedroom condo has been recently updated with weathered wood look floors though out and coastal style furnishings and decor creating a cozy beach cottage feel... Perfect for your beach vacation getaway!
A Place At The Beach I - Unit 2E...located on the West End of the island where wide sandy beaches stretch as far as the eye can see! You'll be hard pressed to find better views or a better value anywhere else on the island! The condo is completely furnished and the kitchen is well equipped. You'll find luxury memory foam mattresses on both the queen bed in the master and the full bed in the second bedroom...perfect for falling asleep to the sound of the waves! There's a stacked washer/dryer right in the condo (uncommon for most units) and also a coin operated laundry facility right off of the pool area. You'll also find 4 beach chairs and a beach umbrella in one of the closets so you won't even have to pack those! All you need to bring are linens, toiletries, yourself, and a desire to relax and just enjoy the sound of the waves and the peace of the ocean!
The condo complex has a private outdoor pool, a private beach access boardwalk right off of the first floor and an outdoor patio grill (charcoal) area for your enjoyment. The condo is about 1 mile from the island town center where several very good restaurants, an ice cream shop, a children playground/park, a putt putt miniature golf course and a children's museum are located...an easy leisurely stroll if you and your family like to walk!
Please contact me (Rhonda) with any questions. I'm happy to provide additional information about the condo, the island or great things to do while you are enjoying your Ocean Isle vacation!
**2bedrooms - queen and twin beds in the master, full and twin beds in other.
**Sofa, though quite comfortable as a bed, does not convert to a sleeper. I actually sleep there quite often as the sunrise through the side wall of windows right above the couch is spectacular, not to mention the waves just off the deck.
**Flip Key only shows baths in whole numbers, and they count a bath and a half as 2 baths...so please note that while the en suite bath in the master is quite spacious with a full vanity, it is only a half bath. Very easy however to jump in the hall full bath for your shower and then head to this one for blow drying hair, makeup, getting ready, etc. Both baths are very nicely decorated!
**There is an ice maker in the fridge and a stacked washer dryer in the utility closet, both rare finds for condos in this building.
**Linens, paper products and toiletries are not provided. I'm happy to provide a reference for a Linen rental service if needed.
**While there are 4 beach chairs and an umbrella for your enjoyment in one of the closets, assuming of course that the renter in front of you left them, I can provide a reference for a beach chair service who rents chairs and umbrellas and will come out everyday to set it up and take it down, for an extra fee of course! :)
**Don't hesitate to email if you have questions. I want your vacation to be as enjoyable as possible!...Read more

Working with Rhonda was wonderful! The location is phenomenal! Totally oceanfront...the condo is quaint and very comfortable. There are many things to do right in OIB and a short drive to neighboring cities. But the best part about our trip was the relaxing days on the beach, with our condo so close! You will love this place!
Thank you so much. It was a pleasure working with you and your family as well. I love sharing the condo with families like yours who enjoy it so much, and always enjoyed the reading in the guest book about the things you and your family did and enjoyed while here. I'm looking forward to you visiting again some time soon! I know you're going to love the new decor, and the best part is that the beach is still just as close and relaxing as always...just waiting for you to return! :)

"A Gem on the Beach"
Left on 04/28/2014 for a stay in March 2014 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Apr 28, 2014Stayed Mar 2014
I have stayed here a few times and as another reviewer said, it keeps getting better and better. This spring when I was there I was delighted to find recent updates including new floors throughout the entire unit, a new kitchen countertop, sink, and faucet, a new stove, new bathroom vanities, new living-room furniture, and new deck furniture.
This place is a real find and a real bargain! My favorite spot is the deck, where I am right above the beach and have soaring views of the ocean and the entire strand. The star gazing from the deck is amazing. The unit has its own washer and dryer, which is really convenient. The complex is relatively small, but has its own swimming pool and gated beach access -- both of which are close to the unit.
The corner location lets light in from two sides, and with the ocean on two sides, you don't need to go outside to know you are on the beach. Ocean Isle Beach is a nice relaxing place to be, and this condo helps guests enjoy it to the fullest. The owner is very helpful and accessible: a nice plus!
Hello Fellow Beach Bum and thanks so much for your review! I'm at the condo this weekend, and you are right, the star gazing from the deck is amazing! :) I'm so pleased you enjoy your visits here and love that you keep coming back. Ocean Isle is like that...a bit addictive! Looking forward to your next visit sometime this fall.
"Ocean Isle Perfection"

I have stayed in this condo several times and it just keeps getting better. Everything you need for a great beach holiday is here...washer/dryer, fully furnished kitchen, beautiful new furniture, modern deck seating. We love being on the end of the building. The spectacular ocean view is just enhanced by the added view from the side of the balcony. We have spent many hours enjoying the sun and sea breezes that sweep up from the shore and wrap around you.
An additional plus for this condo is its location. North Myrtle Beach, Calabash, and several other lovely small towns are easily accessible. Restaurants and shopping options are nearby. We have eaten seafood almost everywhere, had a beer at the local pub and enjoyed Mediterranean cuisine at Grapevine.
The condo offers the opportunities to spend time in the pool, soak up rays on the beach, have a glass of wine on the balcony or walk a mile or so to the pier. A relaxing, quiet place to enjoy NC beach at its best.
Hello Tetbury Neighbor! Thank you so much for the review and I am so pleased that you and your friends loved your recent retreat to the beach. I'm here this weekend, and love the special treats you left for me! You are so kind to leave them for me, and I'll look forward to your alls return in the fall! :)

"Breathtaking ocean front condo - the perfect getaway for our fam"
Left on 04/26/2014 for a stay in July 2013 | The Sirls familyReviewed Apr 26, 2014Stayed Jul 2013
This condo has the most incredible ocean views. It is tastefully decorated, clean, and quiet. I love that I don't have to go to a real estate company to pick up the keys. Renting this condo is extremely convenient. We've rented this condo in July for the last 3 years and have some amazing family memories in OIB! This is the best value for a 2 bedroom ocean front condo I could find. The location in the beach is not crowded and is quiet. The kids enjoy the pool and the ocean. It's convenient to restaurants as well as Calabash and Myrtle Beach if you want to venture out. I feel like crying when our week is up. It is completely relaxing and stress free! Thank you for sharing your beautiful ocean paradise with our family. I look forward to our trip again this summer. If I could give your condo 10 stars, I would!!!
Hello Sirls Family, and thank you so much for sharing your family's love of OIB and my condo! I am always thrilled when families return year after year. My family loves it here as well, and it's so nice to share it with other families who love it as much as we do! I can't wait for your return in July. I just know you're going to love the new updates! I'm here this weekend getting things ready for summer season, and I'm with you on that wanting to cry when I have to leave! :). Rhonda

"Lovely beach cottage style condo with awesome views!"
Left on 04/23/2014 for a stay in August 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Apr 23, 2014Stayed Aug 2013
About as close as you can get to the beach without actually have the sand between your toes! Several days we didn't even bother to drag our chairs down on the beach as you really do feel almost like you're sitting in the sand right on the deck. If you are looking for a place right on the ocean with awesome views not only from the deck but also throughout the living area, this condo will be hard to beat. In addition to the ocean views, the condo has such a cosy beach cottage feel. The beach decor especially the various "mermaid" touches make this lovely condo an idea beach vacation getaway. My family loves it.
In addition, Rhonda, the owner, always makes us feel so welcome and has given us many recommendations for great restaurants in the area. She turned us on to Sunset Slush, a treat you will not want to miss! We've stayed in this condo on several occasions in the past and can't wait to return!
I'm so pleased you've enjoyed the condo in the past, and am excited for you to return soon. Past guests will find that I did some updating over the winter season to make their summer vacations even more enjoyable. I know you're going to love the new floors and furniture, and I even have a few new Mermaid pieces! Same great view as always, of course! :) Thanks so much for your review, Rhonda
