Charming canal front beach house just a short walk from the beach. Floating dock with swim-ladder, outdoor shower, two fridges with ice makers, 6 beach bikes, beach chairs, toys, and games! Also a fully stocked kitchen for cooking full meals at home!

The space
The house was built by my father in 1974 and was one of the first when development of the island started! Since then, it's been a family beach retreat, meticulously maintained by our family, and has withstood the tests of time and weather never losing more than a couple of shingles!

We hope you enjoy the families expansive NC Coast shell collection, assembled by my mother over a 30 year period and including some specimens that you rarely ever see on the beach anymore!

Our hope is that by sharing our family retreat with others we can spread the happy memories we've formed here, and ensure that we are able to keep in in the family for our children and grandchildren for years to come!

Check out the photos of the house during the early years, and please don't forget to sign the guestbook! We trust that you'll take care of the house and enjoy your time there as much as we do. Once you've stayed at the Bee Hive, you're family!

Where you’ll be

Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina, United States

We are located on the first canal lined with Concrete on the island. This means deeper water for swimming right out your back door! (remember, NEVER enter the water from the bank, always off the dock! The Oyster shells that grow on the concrete can be very sharp!)

Being located on the canal is perfect if you are bringing Kayaks with you, or if you are interested in renting a SUP (Stand-Up-Paddleboard). You are still walking distance and super-easy bike riding distance from the public beach access, with a lower price tag than a beach-front house.

There are 6 bikes that we try to keep in good repair you may use while staying with us. Additional bicycles are available to rent from Surf Unlimited on the island. They will deliver and retrieve the bicycles during your rental. Contact them by searching "Surf Unlimited Ocean Isle Beach" or search “Ocean Isle Golf Cart Rentals” for golf carts.
