We all love a good vacation on the gorgeous North Carolina Coast, but do you know how you can make yours even better? By choosing to stay in an Ocean Isle Beach vacation rental, of course! Here are the top 10 reasons why an OIB rental is the best way to stay.
1. You get to choose your Ocean Isle Beach vacation rental location.
Many people assume that an oceanfront beach vacation rental is what most vacationers prefer, but that’s not always the case. Oftentimes, families choose a canal front Ocean Isle Beach rental because they want access to the Intracoastal Waterway and all the activities that come along with it. Other families prefer to stay in their favorite condo complex because of its location and amenities. And then there are other families who prefer to be somewhere in between the ocean and the sound where beautiful family-friendly rentals are also available. The beauty of a vacation rental is that you get to choose where you want to be.

2. You get more vacation value for your money.
When compared with a hotel or motel stay, you’re definitely going to get more value for your hard-earned vacation dollars. Vacation rentals come with more space, privacy, customization, personalization, and all of the things that make it better for families to have what they need for everyone to enjoy a vacation without breaking the budget. Laundry rooms, vacation rental kitchens, pools and tennis courts, and many more money-saving amenities make it the right choice for vacationers who want to get the most bang for their buck.
3. Ocean Isle Beach rentals each have their own personality.
Just like every family is unique, so is each Ocean Isle Beach vacation rental. Choose the one that matches your vacation personality, needs, and wants for the perfect match. What matters most to you in a vacation may not be the same as another family, and that’s okay. Variety and individuality are part of the rental experience. You have more control over your vacation and many vacationers prefer it that way.
4. You can choose the vacation amenities that matter most to you.
Along these same lines, your vacation amenities are yours to choose as well. Tennis courts won’t make much of a difference to you if you are not one who plays. A private pool isn’t much of a draw for those who will never swim in it. That’s why getting to choose the vacation rental with the amenities that matter to you and your family is important. From canal side boat and fishing docks to oceanfront beach homes and cottages to condo complexes with amazing amenities, you’re sure to find your place in the sand. You can use our Advanced Vacation Rental Search page to filter in and filter out amenities, customizing your search and narrowing down the options that are relevant to you.
5. You will have enough bedrooms and bathrooms for everyone.
We’ve all had vacations where we stayed in a hotel or motel with the family and didn’t have enough beds, bedrooms, or bathrooms needed for a truly comfortable stay. Vacations shouldn’t be inconvenient! One of the main benefits of a vacation rental is that you get to choose the size of your accommodation with the right number of bedrooms and bathrooms to make it comfortable for you and all of your guests. You can search our rentals by number of bedrooms, bathrooms, and/or number of guests to find vacation rentals that meet your criteria.
6. You can have your own space and more privacy.
You may not consider how little space you get to yourself during a hotel or motel stay. There is a lot of shared space with strangers coming and going all hours throughout your vacation. That’s not the case in a vacation rental, especially when you choose a mid-island cottage or oceanfront beach home. It’s nice to have that buffer zone between you and other vacationers if you’re in search of some true rest and relaxation. Your accommodations are part of your every day, so you definitely want to have as much peace and quiet as possible.
7. You get to pick which Ocean Isle Beach attractions you want to be near.
Your vacation rental location might just depend on what you want to be closest to during your Ocean Isle, NC vacation. If you’re an angler you might prefer being close to the pier. If you’re a golfer, then you’ll want to be close to the links. If you have a family with young kids, you may want to have the park close by. Or maybe you have a favorite part of town or the beach where you want to spend your days. Whatever the case may be, there is a vacation rental for you! Check out this OIB amenities map to learn more.
8. You can come back to the same OIB rental or try a new one.
Some vacationers find a rental home they like and opt to come back to it year after year. Others enjoy staying somewhere different each year. Wherever your preferences lie, just know that you have options. If you’re hoping to stay in the same again rental next year, it’s best to book it as far in advance as possible. If you can rebook it this year for next year, there is less chance of that rental getting booked by another vacationer before you get the chance to.
9. A rental feels more like a home-away-from-home than a hotel/motel.
Getting the home-away-from-home feeling rarely happens with a hotel or motel stay. Beach vacation rentals can often feel like home the moment you step foot inside. You just know you’re going to settle in quickly and then ultimately find it hard to leave when your vacation time has ended. That’s when you know you’ve picked the right place.
10. Your OIB rental is your oasis.
You’re going to spend a good chunk of your vacation in your OIB rental, so make sure it’s where you want to spend your precious downtime. Choose the rental that’s going to give you the double benefit of feeling like you’re on vacation while also enjoying the comforts of home all at the same time. Choosing the right rental for you and your family is probably the single-most important factor in your vacation planning. Need help? Contact us!
