"Great little find. Much more affordable than a lot of other places. Had everything we needed."

Vacation Rental Guest, Luke P

"Simple cottage, premium location! Cottage was clean and simple. Our group fit nicely. It isn’t fancy but it was perfect for us and it’s the location you are paying for which was amazing. Private access to an uncrowded part of the beach is so nice. Owner was great and prompt with communication. Because no one was checking in right after us he graciously offered a late check out which was very kind."

Vacation Rental Guest, Lindsey G.

"Great House! We have been coming to OIB for many years but needed a different house for this vaca. First time staying in this house and it worked out so well! It was very family friendly and super cute! The bunk bed room with two TVs was a hit for the kiddos! The drink fridge was clutch so we didn’t have to keep drinks in a cooler all week, kitchen was stocked with all the necessities & the Keurig plus drip coffee maker made everyone happy! Owner was great with communication & making sure we were settled. Would definitely recommend & stay again!"

"Very Enjoyable Stay!

This is an older home and you can tell the owners are making constant improvements. There are no problems in this homes livability. Everything we needed was included. We had family, friends, 3 well behaved dogs, and children. We all would go stay here again! Very nice cozy home reminiscient of the good ole days! Thank you owners!"

"Last Minute Vacation!

My husband and I (and our pup) found this house only days before our vacation, and could not have been happier. Communication with the owner was easy and the house was adorable. Although bigger than we needed, it felt warm and homey and was equipped with everything you could possibly need from kitchen appliances and utensils to board games and puzzles. The deck was spacious and our dog loved sitting out there with us enjoying the salt air and ocean view. The location was convenient as well. Overall, a great and much needed relaxing stay."

Vacation Rental Guest, Cathy M.

"Summer Family Vacation!

The home is in a great location and beautifully decorated inside.. You just cant beat being oceanfront! We enjoyed sitting on the deck, listening to the ocean and watching the dolphins and pelicans. The back deck is able to be enclosed with gate for your dog to enjoy being with you. All the beds are very comfortable The check-in process couldn’t be easier and the owner quickly responds to any questions and issues and is dedicated to you having a great vacation."

"Family Week at the Beach!

We had a beach vacation with our four adult children; It was the first time we had all been together for three years, so we were excited to find a beach-front house large enough for all of us. The house looks small on the outside, but has an open floor plan which makes it very roomy on the inside.

We were able to find all the supplies we needed, as the kitchen was well stocked. We had an issue that we needed help with from the owners. They responded immediately and resoved the issue the first day.

Beautiful beach view from the deck."

"Classic Week at the Beach!

We loved our stay in this adorable beach house. Perfect location right on the beach. Kitchen was well-equipped for which we were so grateful. This is a great house for a family vacation on a beautiful beach! Do not miss the sunrise on the beach - totally breathtaking. My last morning walk on the beach the dolphins joined me in the surf.

Great communication with the owner who made everything easy and the house was spotless when we arrived. Five stars!!"
