Ocean Isle Beach is perfect for the family budget.

We understand that time and money may be short. There simply is not enough time to save up a large amount of money for a dream vacation to Europe. That doesn’t mean there isn’t a great option right here on the North Carolina coast. Forget the high dollar hotels or exotic locations. This year take some time to fit in a week on beautiful Ocean Isle Beach. Getting here from anywhere in North Carolina and other major metropolitan areas like D.C or Nashville is easy.

Once you’re here you’ll find there are a lot of great vacation homes available that fit any size budget. Remember, condos, and vacation homes offer a lot for the money. With well-appointed kitchens you can save money and make most of your meals at home. All of our vacation homes are just minutes from the beach or within walking distance. Once you are here getting around the island is cheap and easy. In fact, you can get around all week just fine on a bike. Our beaches are clean, friendly, and never too crowded making this the perfect family destination. So don’t worry about that budget… you CAN afford an Ocean Isle Beach vacation.

Splurge on the important things and save on the others

There are a lot of ways to plan a trip and many ways to budget for that trip. One thing to keep in mind are your priorities. Splurge on what you care about most and cut back on everything else. If fishing is your thing, then budget a little extra for a charter. If you love dining out, skip on the souvenirs and save that money for some culinary adventures.

Remember, renting a vacation home as opposed to booking a hotel is always going to provide more value for the dollar. Plus as we noted above, you can save money by dining in. You may also be able to gather friends and family to rent a larger home on the water or in your favorite destination. Don’t forget condos, which are perfect for couples and small families. Condos feature a lot of amenities that hotels just can’t offer.

Finally, it is good to remember that sometimes cheap travel comes to those who wait. Make sure to check out our specials. Also, it never hurts to give us a call. Our reservationists can help you book on the less traveled weeks or maybe later in the season. Either way, we’ll be glad to discuss all the option available for your family.
