Are you getting ready to plan your Ocean Isle Beach vacation? Are you considering a hotel? What’s missing when you spend your vacation time in a hotel? Examples include the spaciousness of a comfortable living area, a fully equipped kitchen, private bedrooms, and more than one bathroom. These are just a few of the reasons to choose a beach house or condo for your vacation instead of a hotel room. When you decide to stay at a beach rental on Ocean Isle Beach, you’ll feel like you rented a home away from home with the added advantage of being conveniently located just seconds from the beach. Here are ten reasons you should consider renting a condo for your next beach vacation.
1. Enjoy the water right outside your doorstep
Well here’s a no-brainer! Many of our Ocean Isle Beach condo rentals are situated right next to our pristine sandy beaches. What could be better than waking up to the sounds of the tide coming in, spending a whole day soaking up the sun, then falling asleep to the waves gently lapping on the beach? Who needs a sound machine to sleep? Just open the window and fall asleep to the soundtrack of Ocean Isle Beach.
2. Bring the boat
Many of our condo accommodations come complete with boat docks. This means your boat is just steps from your lodgings. What could be better than that? With your own fishing vessel right around the corner you can easily catch the evening’s meal every day while fishing the beautiful waters of Ocean Isle Beach. Of course, you can also use the docks to launch your kayak, canoe or stand up paddleboard.
3. Kids will love it
Kids are people too. Most hotels just aren’t designed to be fun for families or groups traveling together. Between the expense of eating out and having to book two (or more) rooms to accommodate everyone, you can blow most of your budget before you even get started. Hotels eat up way too much of your budget for what they offer. Fortunately, we have loads of great condos to choose from that will meet all your needs. In addition to offering much more than a hotel, condos also have plenty of beds, bathrooms, and televisions. The best part is you can save a bundle by having at least some of your meals at home.
4. More bang for the buck
The bottom line is hotels are not a very good value. An Ocean Isle Beach condo is almost always more affordable than an area hotel. Factor in the cost of eating out three times a day, and a vacation home with a fully-equipped kitchen can be a significantly better value and a lot more fun for your family.
5. Space and more space
Space, space, and more space. On average a hotel room is a virtual shoebox with an average of 325 square feet of living space. Condos are far roomier and, let’s face it, having more room for the family during vacation is never a bad thing. Check out all of our condos by clicking here!
6. Best views on the beach
An often overlooked benefit of many condos are the spectacular views they offer. What could be better than being five stories up with a private deck overlooking the beautiful Atlantic Ocean? We can’t think of anything better either! Check out our property Ocean Pointe, and you’ll see exactly what we mean.
7. Bring friends and family
Did you know that Williamson Realty Vacations has over a hundred condos in our inventory? What does this mean to you? Now finding just the right Ocean Isle Beach condominium has never been easier. Even better, if you have a group planning an Ocean Isle Beach vacation, finding condos close to each other is a cinch. Travel together, be close together, but not too close 🙂
8. You can cook at home
Eating out is fun but it can be a budget killer for many families. One way to help the budget (and probably the waistline) is to take advantage of cooking at your condo. All of our condos have a well-appointed kitchen. Now you can not only save money but also take advantage of all that fresh local seafood you’ve been eyeing.

9. The best locations
Condos have another significant advantage: Location. Condominium properties are often built in prime areas. Many times, they feature oceanfront access or views. Most are close to the best attractions and amenities on Ocean Isle Beach. This winning combination makes renting a condo a great option.
10. They offer the most amenities
Condos often offer a host of amenities that you can’t get in other properties. For example, the Ocean Pointoffers an indoor and oversized outdoor pool, kiddie pool, indoor hot tub, beautiful sunset views, elevators, and private dock with seating area. There is also internet access in selected units. Other properties have similar packages of amenities. No matter which condo you choose you’ll be surprised by the amenities you have access to compared to a hotel.
