Why Mary Arnold and Michele Caputo chose Ocean Isle Beach
After vacationing in Ocean Isle for several years we got tired of renting houses that were never updated or tended to. Each year owners would raise the price but do nothing to improve the house. We decided to build our own homes and offer everything to make our guests' vacations one to remember. As a result, we have many families who have rented our house year after year, and send us emails and photos of their vacations. Our guests take care of our home as if it were their own, because they see that the owners have added their personal touch.
What makes this House unique
Although we are considered second row, the views from our homes are practically oceanfront views. And our location on the far east end offers a great deal of privacy, with very little traffic and a quiet, uncrowded beach. The beach access just across the street allows you to walk out the front door and be on the beach, set up, in just one minute. We offer early and late check-in during off season, as long as the house is available. We are continually thanked by our guests who like to cook, since the kitchen is completely stocked. We offer TV's in every room and games for the family. We even have a gas fireplace in the house if you're planning to visit in the colder months. Bedrooms each have a tv/vcr/dvd combo for unwinding, and each open to a deck from one side and a bathroom from the other. Check out our guest reviews. Like them, you won't be disappointed.
Check-in: 3:00 pm
Check-out: 10:00 am
We allow dogs in the off season with $150 pet fee.
Lots of pool toys, games and movies.
Minimum age of primary renter:23
No refunds for cancellations made after payment is made
Fantastic house with beautiful ocean views
Mary's house is just lovely. We especially liked that there were 3 bedrooms with an ocean view (loved listening to the crashing waves at night). Well stocked and maintained. The only thing that would have made things a bit easier would have been to have linens/towels provided, but the rental process for this was no a big deal. Mary was always easy to reach for any little issues (like figuring out the elevator). I really appreciated her quick response to my questions. Overall, an outstanding place for a week at the beach.
Our Third Stay at Mermaid Crossing
This was our third time staying at the house. We love the views from the front decks, the proximity of the beach, size of the house, and the pool. The location of the house is hard to beat! We stayed at the end of the summer/beginning of the off season (mid September). The house could use updated mattresses and bed pillows. We had 3 different families with us and all members complained about their beds. The pull out sofa mattress was worn out. My mother has a bad hip and couldn't sleep on the pull out sofa as planned. I wish the sofa/office room would be converted to a bedroom with a standard bed and remove the desk and computer. The TVs in the back two upper bedrooms need updated as well. We would stay at the property again despite the needed mattresses. Next time we will travel with air mattresses The owner is friendly and very responsive to any inquiries. In fairness to her I did not mention the mattress and pillow issues to her after our arrival because I didn't feel it would be reasonable to request such a thing while we were there.
Thank you for your review. We were sad to see it wasn't a 5 star review but appreciate your feedback. As you know I email all guests to see if we need to do anything in the house to make your trip better. Pull out couches are normally not comfortable to sleep on. The house next door has a couch from Pottery Barn and still is not good for an adult. We go down often and never had an issue with the beds but I know bed firmness is subjective. I will definitely check out the mattresses in October when I go down. We appreciate you coming back to us each year. The identical house next door has different beds, maybe that house would work for you. We enjoyed having you back again and I will definitely reach out to some of our repeat guests with your concern.
This home was wonderful!!! Fabulous location and easy access to the beach. The house was super clean when we arrived and the kitchen well stocked. The owner Michelle was wonderful to work with and always available to answer any questions I had. Highly recommend this home and the location.
Location was perfect
Another great stay
This is our third stay at this property. Location is great, only steps from the beach. The kitchen is well stocked, nice gas grill, the pool is great for the kids after a day at the beach. All and all, would definitely go back.
Thank you for the 5 star review and for the compliments on our home. We are always happy when our guests return. The views and proximity to the ocean are amazing. We are glad you appreciated our stocked kitchen. We spend a lot of time in the off season making sure we have everything we need. Mary and I hope to have you back in one of our four homes. Remember we have a website and we often list last minute specials on both vrbo and facebook.
Great location and home
An absolutely wonderful home with great ocean views and easy, quick access to the beach. The kitchen is the best equipped I have ever experienced in a rental which made preparing meals for a large crowd much easier. Interaction with the owner was a pleasure. If you plan to use the study as an additional bedroom...sleeper sofas are uncomfortable by nature. I suggest bringing a foam topper or something as added cushion. We purchased an air mattress from the local Walmart for $40 and it was a perfect solution. Thanks to the owners for helping make a great vacation for our family!
