activities and attractions in Ocean Isle Beach Atlantic Coast

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.

Great Thanksgiving Week Vacation

Review submitted: December 11, 2013   Date of arrival: November 23, 2013

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!

Review submitted: November 18, 2013   Date of arrival: October 27, 2013

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!

Recommended for: age 55+, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Awesome Family Reunion Getaway!

Review submitted: November 14, 2013   Date of arrival: August 24, 2013

Over the course of the past five years, we have been meeting up with our extended family, working our way down the Atlantic Coast. This time, I had a feeling that I would find a location that I would want to come back to over and over again. My gut instinct was right! We all loved OIB and loved this property(11 people, ages range from 3 to 72 years).
What you see on this website is totally what you get and more, no surprises(well, only very pleasant ones). We would recommend this house to anyone and we are counting down the days until we return next summer. The owners have the house well-maintained and well-stocked with everything you need to make your vacation an enjoyable one. For people who still like to stay connected to the world while on vacation, you have that too with the free WiFi, TV, etc. The house is clean, spacious and the location is perfect! The owners are very helpful as well and genuinely dedicated to ensuring that you have a nice visit. My recommendation to anyone visiting is to stay for two weeks. One week is just not enough.
After spending a day on the beach, it became our habit to start happy hour while lazing on a float in the canal. This is also a runner's/walker's paradise with nice quiet streets and nice scenery. With close access to Myrtle Beach, Wilmington, shopping, restaurants, golf and other places/activities, if you don't want to spend your whole time on the beach, there is plenty to choose from.
Don't look any further. I truly believe you have found your vacation rental!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway
