Book your Ocean Isle Beach accommodations

Ok, so you are probably picturing a giant house filled with relatives. Relatives that, let’s face it, you may want to visit, but not live with for a week. We understand and actually have a better idea than renting one large vacation home. Williamson Realty Vacations represents dozens of properties, some large, some smaller, which are prefect for individual families. One of the best options available is one of our many condos.

Condos are perfect as they range in size from one to six bedrooms. They offer some of the best locations and amenities. Not to mention with a little planning you can have several family members near each other or even in the same building… perfect!

Getting to Ocean Isle Beach is easy

Getting your family to Ocean Isle Beach has never been easier. If you are coming from larger metropolitan areas like D.C, Charlotte, Philadelphia, or Richmond you’ll find the drive to the beach easy. If you have guests that need to fly, there are two options, Wilmington International Airport or Myrtle Beach International Airport. Both are big enough to offer a variety of flight options including many direct flights. The airports are just a short drive from your vacation home making it a convenient option

Plan your family events

Ocean Isle Beach offers visitors a ton of activities and adventures. From surfing to sea kayaking, an adventure awaits around every corner. Now before you venture out looking for those bigger adventures, remember to take advantage of the easiest, least expensive and to be honest the best attraction… the beach! Ocean Isle Beach has miles of pristine beaches. Our beaches are never too crowded and you’ll find there is plenty of space to gather your tribe together for a family reunion beach style.

There are twenty-six beach access points on Ocean Isle Beach and four of them have handicap access as well. These are spread evenly geographically among the beach access points so you are never far from one should a member of the family need handicap access.

No gathering is complete without great food

No family reunion or gathering is complete without at least one meal together. Whether you have a large family or a small gathering you’ll have no problem finding the perfect place. Here are a few suggestions on how to gather the family around the table.

Dining out is a great option for those smaller gatherings of loved ones. Ocean Isle Beach has loads of awesome restaurants, and do we need to even mention our incredible local seafood. Make sure to call ahead for reservations or to make special accommodations for larger gatherings. Remember our staff is here if you need help with a recommendation for a local restaurant.

 Beach picnics are fun and an easy way to pool resources. Divide up the list of items you need among different family members. Remember to always pack up any waste and avoid bringing glass on the beach.

Family cookout

Perhaps nothing is more traditional (and fun) than a large family cookout. There is just something about the smell of charcoal, the salt air and the sound of kids laughing, that in many ways is exactly what family is all about. A shared experience that for many of us in these busy days doesn’t happen often enough.  Ferry Landing Park on Shallotte Blvd and 7th Street is a wonderful venue with everything you need including a little pier that is perfect for the kids.
