Swim in the surf, sunbathe, play beach games, build sandcastles, stroll the beach looking for shells, try surf fishing, the fun activities are many.

We have beach chairs, blankets, umbrellas, coolers, reusable icepacks, and picnic baskets for lounging on the beach. For beach fun, beach balls, Frisbees, and games are available for your use. When you get back from a fun day at the beach, rinse off the sand in the house’s outdoor hot shower.

Bring your boat or Jet Ski and dock it on the private deep water canal behind the house. Great boating and fishing await you. For boaters the house has a great nautical location.

Our large family rented this great house for New Years Week End and had a wonderful time together even it was very cold. Hope to come back in warmer weather. Would recommend to anyone who needs lots of sleeping space. Frank makes booking very easy. FK Family

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our family enjoyed our week in your beach house. It was open, plenty of room for all, well equipped kitchen and equipment room. My husband and I loved watching the sun come up in the mornings on the porch overlooking the canal. The weather was good. We had rain only 2 half days. That cooled things off a little, so it was a good thing. The house is beautifully decorated and the kitchen is well stocked with appliances you might need. We loved staying in your beach home and hope we can return soon. Thanks for making it available to us.

great vacation home

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed the house very much. The owner was attentive to our every need. House was great for our family of 5. The rafts, bikes and games were a big hit for us. We love staying on the canal, its such a beautiful view. The walk to the beach was short which is a plus.

Great home, great beaches, great town!

  • 4 of 5
We loved the home - it was perfect for our needs. The recreational room (garage) had bikes, beach chairs, tubes, fishing poles & more. The kitchen is stocked with every appliance & utensil you can think of. The only downside with that is it leaves no cabinet space at all so all your food has to go on the counter. Shelves for non-perishables would be a welcome addition. We had a great time & hope to stay there again sometime.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure sharing our home. We have cleared some additional cabinet space for more dried goods to make it more convenient.

We look forward to hosting your group again in the fall.

Great Thanksgiving Week Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at The Happy Pelican! Frank was great to work with, very helpful and friendly. The house was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. The stocked kitchen was great for entertaining, the toy room kept the kids busy for hours (kayaks, bikes, corn hole, kites and more!) and the short walk to the beach was great for us all! We especially loved hanging out on the dock and although it was too cold to catch anything, the kids enjoyed fishing. We would definitely stay at The Happy Pelican again and highly recommend it!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The weather was perfect, not too hot, not too cold, just right for relaxing/strolling on the beach. The home was cozy and inviting, absolutely clean and neat. This time of year assured that there were no crowds to deal with and yet there was enough to see and do that we were never bored. Frank & Wendy were excellent as far as answering any questions we had, they made sure that the home was stocked with everything we needed to cook full meals. The beds were very comfortable, there was a wide array of beach chairs, water floats, kayaks, bicycles, fishing poles, etc. Which we used every day. All in all, we highly recommend The Happy Pelican. We will definitely be back!

Location

Activity and Interests

There is so much to do in OIB. On the ground level is a toy room stocked with toys for the beach, kayaks, rafts, beach chairs, fishing and crabbing gear, bikes, out door games, and lots more.

The beach, just a short walk away from the house, is amoung the widest on the island. It is accessed by a boardwalk (no steps) ramp making it easy to roll our beach cart filled with toys, coolers, and beach equipment onto the beach. This access has a lovely dune and a gazebo for sitting and watching the wildlife.

The dock is great for swiming, crabbing, fishing, and docking your boat or jetski. Don't have a boat, the house comes with two 2 person kayaks and 2 inflatable boats. The dock has a ladder for easy swimming access. The dock is also well equiped to handle boats up to 35 feet in length. Our house, nautically, is located just a minute or two by boat from the ICW and 10 minutes from open water.

Located close to Myrtle Beach and Wilmington, many nearby site seeing opportunities await. See a battleship, visit the Silver Coast Winery, visit many museums, shop while strolling "Broadway at the Beach." There are also many nature preserves in the area as well.

Dining both on and off the island is a treat. You will find no shortage of restaurants featuring every kind of dining experience. Of course a dinner outing to nearby Calabash is a must for unique seafood cooking.

Golfer's note:

Brunswick County is known as North Carolina's Golf Coast. It is home to 30 golf courses with more in nearby Myrtle Beach. This lures golfers from around the globe to Brunswick County, NC. Designed by some of the most prestigious names in course architecture, our courses will challenge and delight professionals and amateurs alike. The Happy Pelican is just 5 to 15 minutes away from 20 of the Golf Coast's finest courses.
