Why an Ocean Isle Beach Rental? Check Out This Short List of Best Reasons!

Why choose a vacation rental over a hotel/motel stay? The question really should be: Why wouldn’t you? There is a long list of reasons why families opt for vacation rentals year after year. We’re only going to focus on the short list of reasons why today, but it’s more than enough to convince you that an Ocean Isle beach rental is the best way to go for your next family NC beach vacation.

1. Great value

Vacation rentals are a great value for your vacation budget. You get so much more in a rental than you do in a hotel or motel stay. Think in terms of space, privacy, your own kitchen, and actual bedrooms. Consider how making a few meals in can save you a lot of money you would have otherwise spent on dining out every single day. You also have more options to bring your extended family or vacation with friends and split the rental costs because there is enough room to accommodate much larger numbers in a rental than in a motel room.

2. Enough bedrooms and bathrooms for families

Customizing your vacation stay to suit your family’s needs is a huge benefit of choosing a vacation rental. You get to decide how many bedrooms would work best for your family and how many bathrooms you need to keep your day-to-day routines running smoothly. Sharing one bathroom is not ideal, especially when you have kids and teens. Vacation rentals give you control of the logistics of your stay.

3. Choose your vacation location

Oceanfront vacation rentals are very popular, but they are not your only options. Each vacationer is different and has unique preferences. Vacation rentals give you the ability to choose where you want to be here in Ocean Isle Beach. Canal Front, Island Park, Mid Island, Ocean View, Oceanfront, Oceanfront/Second Row, Second Row, Summer Place, Third Row are all options for you and your family. Head to the top of the page and hover over the Vacation Rentals tab to see your options by location. Or you can use our Advanced Vacation Rental Search page and click on the Location drop-down menu to filter rentals by location.

4. Amenities that matter

You also get to decide which vacation amenities matter most to your family. Some vacationers want a pool and others couldn’t care less about that. Some want a private boat dock. Others want tennis courts. Vacation rentals give you control of choosing what’s best for your family and what amenities they’ll want (and actually use) during their vacation time. You can use the same Advanced Search Options page mentioned above to filter the amenities by checking off the boxes that include the amenities you prefer and then click the blue Search button for results that match your criteria. This can save you time and effort by only showing the properties that have what you’re looking for in a rental.

5. The comforts of home

A hotel/motel stay never feels like home. It may be comfortable enough and give you the bare minimum you need as a place to stay, but that’s about it. A vacation rental, however, provides many of the comforts of home—but better! You can wake up and enjoy your favorite coffee and breakfast without ever having to get out of your pajamas. A vacation rental kitchen has what you need to save time and the hassle of having to get everyone ready to go out to eat every time you’re ready for a meal. Your vacation rental gives everyone the space to unpack their things and get settled in without having to live out of open suitcases that are sprawled all over the floor. There are places to gather, to eat a meal together, to relax, to play games, to enjoy quality time together. Just like home!

6. Vacation rental extras

Of course your vacation rental is going to give you the extras that you wouldn’t find at home, like that ocean view! Your beach life will feel a bit more luxurious because you’re in a beautiful place with the people you love most. You’re only steps away from miles of pristine shoreline, daily beach walks, shelling and beachcombing, beach sunrises and sunsets, coastal wildlife, and new adventures each and every time you step out of your rental. Your home base is right where it needs to be for a fabulous Ocean Isle Beach vacation. Isn’t it time you booked your next one?


It all starts with booking the right OIB rental for you and your family. Seas the day!
