Everyone needs to get away from the noise and stress of their everyday lives. With the events that surround us today, we know that your and your family’s health and safety comes first. As of now, the CDC travel advisories are suggesting that gatherings of more than 50 people should be avoided for the next eight weeks. That concern may leave folks wanting to get out and enjoy some fresh air – but in need of wide open spaces. Welcome to Ocean Isle and Sunset Beach – filled with wide open, quiet outdoor activities and private accommodations.
No Need to Fly!
One of the greatest benefits to an island getaway right here on the North Carolina coast is that we are just a day drive for so many. You are in complete control of your surroundings on your journey to visit us and once here, you have the privacy of your own home, including the flexibility to cook in the comfort of your vacation rental home. Local grocery stores are stocking daily and Publix, Lowes and Food Lion offer ordering on-line with curbside pickup. Many of our locally owned restaurants are offering their amazing fare available as carry out WITH curbside pickup and delivery! What a treat! Here is just a FEW of the local restaurants offering special services:
From large homes with private pools to golf condos with a view of the fairway or even quiet 1 bedroom beachfront condos – there’s something for everyone here on the islands. We have over 400 privately owned vacation rentals to choose from. We even have many pet friendly offerings so your getaway can include all 2 and 4 legged members of the family. With outdoor activities like golf, beach walking,
shelling, trail walking, and fishing being the focus of many family vacations here on the coast – you can still have a ton of fun without the crowds.
