    Organizing a Beach Wedding

    Last updated 6 days ago

    For many people, there is no wedding venue more beautiful than the beach—but a beach wedding is quite different from any other place to have a wedding. For one thing, there’s a lot of wind, so you don’t want to wear anything too flowy. Instead of wearing high heels or choosing them for the bridesmaids, use flip-flops or go barefoot. It’s important to also be aware of the rules on the beach; many beaches do not allow glass containers or food service. For more tips on how to organize a beach wedding, watch this video clip.

    If you are considering organizing a wedding on the beach in North Carolina, contact Williamson Realty. We offer a range of Ocean Isle Beach NC rentals that will be perfect for your wedding. For more information about our vacation rentals, including our selection of last-minute beach rentals, call us at (888) 692-0560 or visit our website.

Continue reading to learn more about why Ocean Isle Beach is the perfect place for a golf getaway.

    It’s Close to Sandpiper Bay Golf and Country Club

    This 27-hole golf course is known for its natural bunkers, well-maintained bent-grass greens, and classic design. Dan Maples, a highly respected golf course architect, designed Sandpiper for golf players of all levels. You can even book a tee time online without leaving your vacation rental in Ocean Isle Beach.

    You Can Go for a Swim After a Round of Golf

    The great thing about oceanfront golf is that when you’re done you can head back to your vacation rental and go for a swim. You can jump right into the ocean at Ocean Isle Beach, or visit the Winds Resort and Beach Club for a drink at their poolside tiki bar.  

    It’s a Short Drive from Sea Trail

    Just five minutes from the ocean, Sea Trail offers 54 holes of golf on more than 2,000 acres of creeks, lakes, and woodlands. They offer both nightly and extended golf packages, and are just minutes away from shopping, entertainment, and restaurants in nearby Myrtle Beach.

    It’s Near The Pearl Golf Course

    Pearl Easy and Pearl West are two newly renovated golf courses that are highly sought after in the Ocean Isle Beach area. Designed by Dan Maples to be beautiful and challenging, these painstakingly groomed golf courses feature views of the Calabash River and Intracoastal Waterway.

    For a family reunion, few places offer the fun, excitement, and beauty of the beach. But if you are planning a family reunion on the beach, there are a number of things you have to keep in mind. First, check online to see the particular beach’s rules regarding events, food, and drinks. Then check with family members to gauge interest in the reunion and to see how many people would want to have it on the beach. Be sure to ask for help with planning the decorations, activities, family history media, photography, and entertainment. You will need to come up with a reunion schedule, design and send the invites, ask for volunteers, and purchase the supplies in the weeks before your beach family reunion.

    Keeping Your Kids Safe on the Beach this Summer

    Last updated 26 days ago

    Going to the beach with your family is a great way to relax and enjoy the summer. If you want to get away, Williamson Realty has a great selection of discount vacation rentals in Ocean Isle that are perfect for any budget. If your kids are coming with you, read this article to make sure they stay safe on the beach.

    Schedule Swimming Lessons

    Before you go to the beach this summer, make sure your kids know how to swim. If your children have never been in a swimming pool, the beach is not a good place to learn how to swim—the waves, riptides, and plant life can be challenging to swim through, especially for young children.   

    Apply Sunscreen Liberally

    Even on a cloudy day, UV ray exposure is intense at the beach, as the sun’s rays reflect off of the water. Keep your kids safe by applying a high-SPF sunscreen half an hour before going outside and reapplying after swimming.

    Know the Beach Rules

    Many beaches have specific rules regarding where you can swim, so pay close attention to posted beach safety guidelines. Take your kids to meet the lifeguards and ask them to give you a brief rundown of ocean swimming safety.

    Tell Your Kids to Err on the Side of Caution

    Riptides, also known as undertows, can pull swimmers out farther into the ocean. Tell your kids not to swim in the ocean in areas where the waves aren’t breaking, as these areas are likely to have riptides.

    Keep Watch

    Never let your kids out of sight when you are at the beach. If you have to go to the bathroom or feed the parking meter, ask another adult to watch your children. Never assume that if you are in a group that somebody is watching your kids.

    If you want to take your family to a safe and beautiful beach this summer, contact Williamson Realty and ask about our vacation rentals in Ocean Isle Beach NC. Visit our website to take a look at the 300 vacation rentals we have, and call us at (888) 692-0560 for more information.

    Managing Your Money While on Summer Vacation

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Most people spend weeks or even months saving up for a summer vacation. Unfortunately, it can be easy to blow through your vacation money after only a few days if you aren’t careful. Between souvenirs, dining out, and fun activities like parasailing and scuba diving, staying at a beach rental property for the summer can get pricey. To make sure you don’t need to call an end to your vacation early or dip into your savings, here are some tips for managing your money while on vacation. 

    Set a Budget

    Just because you’re on vacation doesn’t mean you should take a vacation from your budget. Before you pack your bags and hit the road, come up with a budget for your family during the vacation. Be sure to include food, gas, lodging, souvenirs, and the occasional splurge like jet ski rentals or parasailing. To help cut back on food costs, consider staying in a rental house with a full kitchen.

    Pull Out Cash

    To help keep your spending under control while on vacation, think about pulling out all of the cash you will need before you arrive at your vacation rental. Pulling out cash all at once will help you keep track of how much you’re spending each day, and will also help you avoid piling up expensive ATM fees.

    Pay Your Bills Early

    Before you officially go into vacation mode, go through your bills and schedule payments to come out automatically while you are gone. This will help you avoid missing a bill and having to pay expensive late fees.

    For help planning a fun and surprisingly affordable beach getaway this summer, contact Williamson Realty Vacations. We are your source for vacation rentals in beautiful Ocean Isle Beach, NC.
