Ocean Isle Vacation Guest, Lisa
"Property manager was quick to respond, helpful, gave information promptly. The view was fantastic, parking was great. The home is an older home, but was layed out well, functional for multiple familys, and had nice bedrooms. The kitchen is very well stocked for cooking in! We will rent again."

Ocean Isle Vacation Guest, Lori
"We had a wonderful family vacation at Bray’s Ray’s! Lots of space for our large family of 14! Beautiful views and easy walk to the beach! Cliff was very responsive and answered all our questions quickly. We had a minor issue and Cliff had it resolved in no time! Great vaca! "

Ocean Isle Vacation Guest, Linda
"Lovely beach front home. Very roomy and comfortable. A bedroom and bathroom for every couple. A very well stocked kitchen, could use a little updating. We really enjoyed the beach location, never crowded as between two public beach accesses. The week went by too fast."

Ocean Isle Vacation Guest, George
"First time we tried taking our adult children and spouses along with grandkids to the beach for an entire week. It was better than expected. The house more than accommodated everyone. Easy access to the beach made the trek with a 5 year old and a 2 year old that much easier. Some issues popped up that the manager and home owner jumped on quickly. OIB is one of the best beaches for young kids and family’s Can’t wait to do it again!"

Ocean Isle Vacation Guest, Lynn
"Will rent again next year for the space and beds. Easy access to the beach. Cliff was accessible immediately when problems arouse."

Ocean Isle Vacation Guest, Dana
"Property was exactly as advertised. Plenty of space for the group and being on the beach was what our group wanted for the long weekend."

Ocean Isle Vacation Guest, Howard
"House was fantastic with lots of room and games. Kitchen had everything one would need to make a full Thanksgiving dinner for nine people, including pots/pans/crock pots/roasters/dinner ware. Each bedroom has its own bathroom and water pressure/heat handled everyone."

Ocean Isle Vacation Guest, Carol
"Very nice, perfect for the family."

Ocean Isle Vacation Guest, Janell
"The home was very clean and well equipped for a long stay. The beach access was good and location perfect. The property manager was helpful and quick to respond to questions. I would rent this home again."

Ocean Isle Vacation Guest, Chris
"Walk to everywhere!"

Ocean Isle Vacation Guest, Heather
"First and foremost, many thanks to Cliff, property manager, for his promptness and great customer service! The week at the beach was just what we gals needed to escape our respective realities. Plenty of room to be together and catch up. The only thing we all discussed was the overgrown two trees and bushes below the deck. They blocked part of the ocean view and somewhat inhibited the breezes from getting to us on the deck. We also envisioned a pool for those who could not make it down to the beach due to walking issues of their own. Maybe the owners could consider installing one some time . . . . ? Delightful cottage and we will be returning next year for sure! Thanks again, Cliff for everything!"

Ocean Isle Vacation Guest, Katherine
"Our extended family has been going to the beach for most of my life. We love staying beach front, cooking family meals, playing games and spending time together. The location and layout of this home was perfect for that. We also appreciated the use of the kayaks and bikes - that was an added bonus."

Ocean Isle Vacation Guest, Cheryl
"There was plenty of room for our family to gather all together or in small groups and room for multiple board games and puzzles. Kitchen was well stocked. Being ocean front was a treat. We will be back."

Ocean Isle Vacation Guest, Ronald
"Property had table space, chairs and rooms for everyone to eat, play and relax at the same time."

Ocean Isle Vacation Guest, Joseph
"Nicely appointed ocean front house. Plenty of room in the living areas. Kitchen well stocked. Very nice bedroom arrangement with individual bathrooms (2 of the bathrooms have additional access from common area). Some condition issues: fairly severe water damage in the ceiling of one of the bedrooms;. one of the kitchen drawers fell apart when we opened it. On the whole, however, highly recommended. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

Ocean Isle Vacation Guest, Dana
"Beach rental reviews all depend on the renters expectations. This rental property exceeded our expectations and we plan to set up our rental for next year soon. Our expectation was a house with okay sized rooms and a layout that was a bit better than all bedrooms on the same floor, no entertainment items (pool, game room etc) besides TVs (as is shown in pics and description). The rental is brand spanking new, but is extremely functional. The abundance of bathrooms is really nice as is the two rooms with balconies on the top floor. What exceeded our expectations is how much stuff is included in the rental- it really feels like you're stepping into a house that a person lives in year round (every type of cooking accessory is available, tons of dishes and utensils etc). We brought a bunch of cooking items not knowing and next year were leaving it all behind (except spices and seasonings). Additionally the house had kayaks available, a couple beach chairs, and a couple bodyboards (but those are deterioating). We used the beach chairs but didn't mess with the other stuff (again given the age of our kids we weren't adventuring far away). The rooms are quite large, we had at one point 6 kids (ages: 9, 8, 8, 7, 5, 4) in a bedroom upstairs (two to a bed and two on the floor) and they did great and it was removed from the living area that the adults could play games chat without the noise bothering the kids. The place has pull out dividers to block off two nooks (that contain sleeper couches), we didn't require use of these beds but really liked that a "private" space could be quickly created. The acoustics of the rental is great, I felt the rooms were very quiet. The access to the beach is spectacular and you are located far enough away from the "general access" point that beach goers don't wonder down to claim space in front of the rental. We did set up our umbrellas around 9am everyday to "claim" the space in front of the rental but I am not sure this was necessary (but we were up). The back deck and the boardwalk to the ocean are aged, I'd recommend you wear sandals to avoid splinters (my 9yr old found this out the hard way). But overall really great and the owner (Cliff) was easy to reach and kept us in the loop as our date approached. Highly recommend ....as long as you don't take our planned week. ;)"

Ocean Isle Vacation Guest, Elizabeth
"This house has a fantastic location with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. We had ourselves, three adult children and their spouses, and two grandchildren with us, without feeling crowded. Checking in and out was a breeze, and the property manager was very responsive. We hope to stay here again!"

Ocean Isle Vacation Guest, Erin
"My family and I enjoyed the property over fall break."

Ocean Isle Vacation Guest, Ralph
"House is in a great location. We enjoyed our stay very much and have already booked for next year."

Ocean Isle Vacation Guest, Raquel
"This is a large house which can easily accommodate upto a tribe of a family! The kitchen is overly stocked with multiple everything (I did bring my own coffee grinder, but that's my thing). We enjoyed the ocean...I enjoyed the view and the seashells. The younger generations enjoyed swimming and some kind of boarding. This was a sentimental return to Ocean Isle. I used to take my children here when they were preschoolers. Now, I take my grandchildren who have just graduated from college."

Ocean Isle Vacation Guest, Mike
"We had 4 adults and 4 children staying at the house, and we had more than enough space. I liked the open sitting area, big kitchen table, and of course the easy access to the beach. Communication with the property owner was great, and we loved our stay!"

Ocean Isle Vacation Guest, Thaddeus
"Great location. Check in was easy and simple. Fantastic house for family and friends."
