    My Happy Place - INDEED!!

    This was our first time to OIB and to have the chance to stay in this home was just the way to do it!! My Happy Place was the best beach house we have ever rented. Absolutely SPOTLESS! The house has so much room and we loved all the porches! My in-laws needed an elevator and they loved the one in the house. The location can't be beat - the beach is so close and you're far enough away from the busy end of the island that there is no noise. My experience dealing with the owners has been first rate all the way. This is a beautiful home that I cannot recommend enough!

    We Loved this Beach House!

    Our family LOVES Ocean Isle and comes down frequently, and we've stayed in lots of places on the Island. This one was BY FAR our favorite house. The house was super clean, the furnishings and finishes were top of the line. We love staying at a house with a pool, and also this pool area was the best we've experienced. Love the location on the beach as well, and was super convenient to the beach access. The decks were wonderful and it's so nice to be able to look out and see the ocean from many areas in the house and on the decks. The owners were super friendly and easy to work with. From start to finish, this experience was great! Hope to return to "My Happy Place" soon!

    Wow! Beautiful house!

    We own a large house on the west side of OIB and our clan has gathered there for Christmas each year since 2009. In 2015, our house rented over the holidays so I was tasked with finding a house comparable to ours in as many ways as possible: oceanview, elevator, heated pool, big TVs, clean, nicely furnished, well-equipped kitchen, etc. "My Happy Place" did not disappoint. The house was clean and everything was in great shape. The huge deck has a fantastic view of the ocean. The 6 boys enjoyed the heated pool and the 4 smaller ones (ages 5-8) really liked the built-in bunkbeds. The kitchen is huge and the twin refrigerators and wet bar area were handy. New 55-inch TVs are in just about every room and were great for watching college bowl games. Eric, one of the owners, was very responsive and a pleasure to work with. We often get booking requests for unavailable dates at our house. I will have no reservation referring people to "My Happy Place" as I know they will receive the same attentiveness and well-maintained property as we would provide.

    Family Thanksgiving locale

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at My Happy Place and Paradise Found (next door). Two almost identical homes side by side perfectly fulfilled our needs. The furnishings are attractive and comfortable, the kitchens are very well equipped, the views are lovely, the owners are responsive, friendly and clear in their expectations. We especially appreciated the large top level deck, the heated pool, and two refrigerators. We are even happy to give you credit for the gorgeous weather we had. Thanks for a allowing us to enjoy your lovely home(s).

    Amazing! Beautiful! Relaxing!

    Such a beautiful home! Very clean and tons of space; we had everything we needed. We wanted a relaxing, get-away-from-it-all vacation and we absolutely enjoyed every minute of our vacation here. We spent nearly every morning at the beach, every afternoon in the pool, and every evening relaxing on the enormous balcony facing the ocean. Incredible kitchen! It was said more than once by everyone how great the kitchen was. The handicap accessible room and elevator were perfect for my mother-in-law. Fabulous that there were two masters so each couple was able to stay in one. And my daughter loved the decor of her room. We loved it and are definitely coming back next year!

    My family loved your house and we had a wonderful time on our first vacation at Ocean Isle! Your house was perfect for our family of 10. The kitchen is awesome. Each room is beautifully furnished. My husband and I really enjoyed the elevator and we all enjoyed the pool. You were very easy to communicate with and very responsive to our needs! We have already booked again for next year! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!

    Love, Love, Love!

    Last year we had stayed next door and had such an amazing time we brought even more family with us and they stayed here. The rooms are gorgeous and the double fridges are perfect. The proximity to the beach, the beautiful pool make it so easy for families to come and relax. This home exceeded all of their expectations. You will not regret the experience of staying here. We love it and will be back!

    My Happy Place Indeed!

    Our family spent an incredible week in this beautiful home, and wish we could have stayed longer! We had 9 adults and 7 children, and there was plenty of room for everyone. The home is very user- friendly, from the layout of the bedrooms and the kitchen/ great room, to the pool area and especially the top deck. We spent a great amount of time out there, enjoying the rocking chairs, the ocean view, the sound of the waves, the sea breeze, and the pelicans! We rented cornhole boards, which were fun on this deck, and of course, it was so easy to hook up our own music here and at the pool. The beach is a quick walk, and we utilized the well- stocked closet of umbrellas, beach chairs, boogie boards, and sand toys. The pool had a great amount of shade when we needed a break from the sun. We had an anniversary dinner catered by Purple Onion/ Art Catering, which was delicious. The kitchen was well-stocked for our large family, and the double refrigerator/freezer was fantastic. The owners were excellent to work with, and had very quick response time on a couple of minor issues. It was the perfect location for our family vacation, and many memories were made at this Happy Place! We all hope to return sometime soon.

    Best Place on Ocean Isle!

    This house is exceptional! I can't say enough about how beautifully it was decorated and how comfortable it feels. The bunk room was wonderful for our crew. The kids had their own sanctuary with a big screen packed with movies. The beds were like sleeping at home. That says a lot! The elevator helped tremendously because a member of the family can not walk the stairs. We didn't know that you couldn't have a canopy on the beach so we left our umbrellas at home. Eric had a room full of beach accessories for the renters use which includes 2 umbrellas! Thank you Eric for making this the best beach trip yet!!!!
