The property was very nice, the bedrooms were great, and the view beautiful, room on the beach and that is where it ends.
• One day without AC.
• Spotted palmetto bugs
• Furnishings are less then comfortable
• It is not located in a gated community but along the road to a gated community
• The swimming pool is just over a half mile away from the unit
• The beach is not a “100 yards” from the beach but 330 yard
• The sand dunes are 100 yards after you cross two active streets
As for the local amenities such as restaurants there are too few to handle the population, waits from 60 to 90 minutes to be seated and then more time because they are all under staffed. Sea food is great after the wait. Are you going fishing? Nice, the pier charges by the fishing pole and pier closes at 12 PM. Want to go out on a boat to fish? Even better, make a reservation more than two weeks out or no fishing from a boat. This place cannot handle the number of people that show up every week.
As for the infer structure everyone arrives at 4 PM on Saturday, and everyone checks out at 10 AM on Saturday. Going and coming from Ocean Isles Beach you will travel at one point, no lie, one mile an hour for two miles. If you drive there, stay off the main routes.
One last thing Lowes Foods, great place they have the number of employees to handle the mass of people, hats off to you.

Owners response: We are in full agreement that this is a very nice property. The unit is inspected before and after each rental to insure the highest quality maintenance. I stayed there with my father the week before this guest’s visit and the home and the beach was lovely as always. We have had 100% positive input from all guests.

Guest comments:
• The AC issue was reported to our property manager, Cooke Realty, Sunday morning and was corrected that afternoon with under a 6 hour turn around.
• Palmettos live outdoors in all tropical climates, can fly and are attracted to light. It is misleading to suggest otherwise.
• The Islander Villas is no longer gated and the property description has been updated.
• The location of the community pool, restaurant and exercise facilities (.4 miles 5 minute walk) was communicated to the guest prior to arrival.
• The short beach access walkway across the dunes is 100 yards (3 minute walk), was communicated accurately, and is clearly visible from internet available satellite pictures …..not 300+;

Many families visiting Ocean Isle Beach have stayed at our beach home and had wonderful vacations. It is unfortunate that these visitors obviously did not enjoy their stay at this very beautiful and popular beach destination.

Golf golf and more golf!

We had a great golf week - we could stay for a month and not play all the courses we want to try. A round at Rivers Edge, dinner and drinks at Sharkeys, and a great night sleep in your great place - heaven!

A weekend is too short

This Labor Day was a family get-away with our parents and children. We've never been to OIB and our only regret is that we didn't stay the week. Your place is great - clean and bright and just a short walk to the beach. We love your sunflower paintings and pictures. We never want to leave!

We had such a great time on OIB and enjoyed your home so much! We appreciated how clean it was and the artwork is beautiful. The view is wonderful and evenings on the deck with family were wonderful. We hope to be back next year!
