Why Barbara Bartow chose Ocean Isle Beach
We had rented vacation homes with family and friends at the beach for years, mostly the outer banks. After my husband became a private pilot, and we were partner's in an airplane, we decided that it would be nice to be able to "fly in" to our own place for relaxing weekends. Ocean Isle Beach was the perfect location, short flight from Alexandria, VA and an airstrip five minutes away. My husband has since retired and due to a vision loss, no longer flies, but we still enjoy our trips to this quiet oasis with the amazing sunsets.

Ocean Isle Vacation
Really nice home with a beautiful view. The house was equipped with everything we needed to prepare meals including a grill in great condition. We had plenty of space for our group of 11. The spacious decks with comfortable furniture overlooking the ocean was our favorite part. The homeowner checked with us prior to arrival and shared all the information we needed. No issues at all at the house during our stay. Thank You Barbara for sharing your home with us!
First time vacationing in ocean isle beach
Had an enjoyable week at this well maintained, gorgeous home. There was plenty of room for 14 people and enough space to spread out if desired. The beach was beautiful and not crowded at all. This property has the best equipped kitchen we’ve seen in 15 plus years of renting. Barbara sent a detailed email prior to the start of our week and checked on us to see if anything was needed. I can’t say enough about this wonderful property. Thx Barbara!

Great property at OIB!
We just got home from a fantastic week at Ocean Isle Beach. This house checks all the boxes. The owner was great to work with and very responsive, the house is well decorated and the kitchen is well equipped....nice quality of pots and pans and great knives (stay in a place for a week that doesn't have these things are you will notice from then on!! :)) And they had TWO COFFEE POTS! They must have known the group that was coming :). The house had a great number of beds and we easily slept 12 of us there. Loved the view from the deck and loved that you could see the end of the island too. The house is a very short and easy walk to a nice public access point and we felt like we were in a bit of a quieter spot on the island in this location...less traffic, easy to cross the road, felt safe walking on the side of the road to the access. Two of our family members are older and one some some mobility issues and he was able to get out to the beach without much trouble at all. It was really nice having two living areas...one for the adults and one for the kids, so everyone had some space in our downtime. Having the pool and the hot tub were such a luxury and our kids just had a blast....as we all did. We will be back to stay at this property again! Thanks for sharing your home with us!
Thank you for the terrific review. We have rented a lot of beach houses prior to owning. We understand the importance of continually updating furnishings, replacing appliances and ensuring that the kitchen is 100% stocked with all that is necessary to prepare food for a crowd. We hope to rent to you again.
A hop, skip & jump to the beach!
When it was too choppy at the beach, the pool was calm and refreshing. With five nicely appointed bedrooms & baths, and well equipped kitchen, my family and I had everything we needed - except more time off from work so we could stay longer. We ate fruit and vegetables from the local farm market, along with scallops and shrimp caught fresh from Sheffields seafood. Staying in this very well maintained beach house makes you dream about living there permanently. Reserve as far in advance as possible, it books up for the season quickly.
