    Reasons Your Family Needs to Take a Vacation

    Last updated 8 days ago

    Stop and think for a minute about when your family last really spent time together. Don’t include time spent rushing to events or nodding in passing on your way to different activities. If you’re like most families in today’s busy world, chances are that you can’t come up with much. In Ocean Isle Beach, NC, we have the antidote to your stressed-out family’s on-the-go lifestyle: a peaceful vacation in our seaside village. Are you still not convinced that you should reserve your Ocean Isle rental home today? Here are some of the reasons your family needs a trip together now. 

    Relieve Stress

    Stress is serious business. It takes a major physical and emotional toll on people of all ages. It can impact how your family sleeps, eats, copes with problems, and even how you treat each other. A vacation gives you a moment to let the stress melt away so that you feel physically stronger and happier. With the stress gone, your family will be able to focus on simply enjoying each other.

    Foster Connections

    It might be easy to stay close to your kids while they are younger, but it’s natural for distance to seep into the relationship when your kids enter their teens. If you want to rebuild those bonds, get away together on a vacation. Among the serene settings of the South Brunswick beaches and all your family’s vacation adventures, you will reforge connections that are easily weakened in battles over homework and curfews.

    Make Memories

    You’ll treasure the memories you make in Ocean Isle Beach forever. In fact, these memories are so special to so many of our visitors that they make an Ocean Isle trip part of every summer. Isn’t it time for your family to start a new tradition?

    What Seashells Can You Find on NC Beaches?

    Last updated 16 days ago

    What trip to North Carolina beaches would be complete without a little seashell hunting? North Carolina’s beaches have a unique collection of seashells, thanks to the state’s placement in the middle of the country. NC beaches get shells that come from the Virginia current and from the Gulf Stream, so the variety of shells is unlike what you find in other areas.

    Watch this video for insight into the types of shells you can find on NC beaches. The only rules to collecting shells are to make sure there are no animals in the shells and to be sure to leave enough shells behind for the next person!

    Must-Have Items for Packing for Your Beach House Vacation

    Last updated 22 days ago

    You work hard all year long, and you deserve to take a relaxing vacation with your family to the beach. To get the most out of your vacation, consider staying in a rental house, which affords you all the comforts of home. Packing for your beach house vacation is a little different than packing to stay at a hotel, so keep reading for tips on must-have items for you and your family. 

    Morning Rituals

    Imagine waking up to the sounds of the ocean lapping at the beach, but not having your morning coffee or tea to complete the picture! If you enjoy a hot beverage to get your day going, bring your favorite coffee or tea with you so you don’t have to venture out of your beach house every morning.

    Kitchen Necessities

    One of the great parts about renting a beach house is that you’ll have a full kitchen at your disposal, so you don’t have to go out to eat at every meal. Bring a good quality knife to make chopping fresh veggies and slicing steaks and seafood a breeze. If you have favorite seasonings or preferred cooking oil, pack those as well. Consider making a list of what you’d like to cook before you leave home, and bring the most versatile herbs and spices to save space when you pack.

    Bed and Bath

    Before you depart for your beach vacation, find out what sort of linens will be supplied for you. Some rental houses provide sheets and blankets, while others may recommend that you bring your own. Don’t forget to pack bathroom accessories such as shampoo, conditioner, soap, and toothpaste so that you don’t have to make too many trips to the drugstore once you arrive. It never hurts to bring a few extra towels for the beach.
