8 of us went down for a quick guys weekend of golf and fishing. Couldn't have picked a better place. Lots of room, great outdoor kitchen, and convenient to grocery store and restaurants. Definitely book again for our next trip to ocean isle.
My family and I travel quite often and we are a large crew - so we seek the larger properties that can host us all under one roof. When we arrived, we were thrilled with the home. It far exceeded our expectations. We coordinated with a local talent agency and planned a "murder mystery" that took place at the home for our last night there. The home proved to be the perfect space for our activity. The property manager was on site and always available when needed. I would highly recommend this property and the property owners! Sorry for the delayed review - but I definitely wanted to tell prospective guest about the great time that I know they will have!
This was a lovely property. Everything we needed was there in the home, there was nothing that we had to get outside of the home. The owners thought of everything The home was clean and comfortable. I loved the fact that there was access to the balcony from just about every room. The views from the balconies were beautiful and relaxing. The heated pool was an excellent addition to the home. We were traveling with my elderly mom and she loved having an elevator available. The home is in a good location, close to the beach and stores. The owners were easy to contact. The housing manager was very friendly. This was my first time to this area and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The home made the visit that much more pleasurable. I would definitely rent this property again and would recommend it to friends and family. I've rented other homes but this was by far the best and nicest of them all. Thanks you Jonathan and Dale for allowing us to stay in your lovely home.
Our stay at Happy Hours was nothing short of fabulous. The house had everything you could ever want and in many cases two of them. As you think of what the kids will enjoy the most, the dock was never in my top 5 considerations about the house. The young kids loved the dock, we caught 3 crabs and one flounder. Our 3 year old checked those pots 4-5 times a day. We will have these amazing memories of our 2017 vacation in OIB forever.... Joan Read
My wife and I celebrated out 50th wedding anniversary at this house the the entire family. Jonathan and Dale graciously allowed us to rent their house with two grandparents (us), four children and spouses and 20 grandchildren. There was never a lack of things to do from us 75 year olds to the 2 year old. Being an owner of a rental property in Acapulco Mexico, we appreciated this house that was fully equipped and immaculate. We also did our best to leave it the way we found it and were reimbursed the full security deposit. Our son-in-law brought his fishing boat, so the canal access was of great benefit for fishing and sight seeing on the water. Lord willing, we will do this again.
The house was beautiful and we wish we could have stayed longer. There were a few things that if we were staying longer than we did, they would have been a problem if not fixed right away. There were a couple of bulbs out which made some areas darker than others. There were also fruit flies everywhere that we couldn't get rid of. Other than that, the house was perfect!
We spent Thanksgiving at this wonderful house with our family of 22 (four generations.) Everyone had a wonderful time. The weather was excellent and the little ones spent many hours in the pool. The new playground was almost in our backyard. The house was well suited to a large group and was in a good location. Katherine P.
Great place. This was our 3rd time staying at Happy Hours, and wouldn't stay anywhere else in Ocean Isle. Very clean, tons of room, and the owner was very accommodating and responsive. Anyone traveling to OIB that has a group of 12 or more, don't pass on this house. We'll definitely be back.
We invited our friends and family to come down and we all had a wonderful time at this house. There were more than enough rooms and bathrooms. The kids really enjoyed the upstairs game room. We enjoyed cooking meals in the large kitchen as well as the outside entertaining area. We took advantage of the heated pool and loved sitting out on the decks. We also loved the fact it was so close to the beach and shops. We would definitely recommend this house for your next vacation. Kristen & Joe Huffstetler
This house is amazing - huge, attractively and comfortably furnished, with everything necessary for a great vacation. The washer and dryer, double refrigerators, and double dishwashers were extremely useful for a group of 17 that included three toddlers and four older children. The house is in a superb location, on the water, with a great dock for fishing, next to an excellent local museum with lots of activities for children and also next to a community space with outdoor concerts, movies, and a farmer's market. The house is a short walk to a great beach. We couldn't have found a better house for an extended family beach week! Thanks to the owners!
Good house for a large group. Rooms and area are clean, despite the recent storm in the area. Everything we needed was provided, and the house manager was very accommodating and very helpful. We called about the air conditioner in the 2nd floor and they immediately sent help who fixed it in no time. The manager was always available for questions. The guys enjoyed fishing in the pier which was walking distance from the house. We enjoyed the pool, the kayaking and fishing in the back, grilling in the garage area, and the music all over the house. Ocean, grocery, shopping area are very accessible. It was a good short vacation, we wish we'd had stayed longer.
This house is spacious and has something for everyone. Great location - walk to the beach in just a few minutes, easily walk to putt-putt, shops and restaurants. Pool on the property is awesome. Awesome sunset views from the top level and listen to the Friday concerts right from the outdoor bar. Thanks for helping us make great family memories.
