The home is spacious and true to the listing. It has a large fenced in yard, great screened in sunporch, and double story front porches with ceiling fans and chairs to relax in. They have a decent size driveway, a garage to store your beach stuff (they as well had chairs and some toys there, we used our own), a garden hose to rinse items, and a enclosed outdoor shower to get all that sand off you. Kitchen had tons of dishes, pans etc.. as well large refrigerator, toaster, coffeemaker, and red kettle. It’s a very short drive to the beach and the canal to opposite side. Paid parking only $20. Depending on how much you bring you could walk. We had one in our party join later in the day so they walked down. I would love to take a beach bike with tow for our stuff next time! Just a short drive (12min) are some fun souvenir shops and sweets. The checkin and check out was extremely simple and our contact was accessible and courteous. We certainly would recommend

From The Owner: "Andrea,
That’s the best, detailed review ever. Thank you so much for sharing so much detail about the home and amenities.
We try to think of things that would be helpful to guests. Sounds like a bike tow or maybe a beach cart would be helpful for those willing to walk to the beach. We really appreciate your feedback and hope you visit Island Belle and OKI again!"
We had an amazing time staying at this home. It was extremely clean and had everything you could possibly need. The furnishings were new and very comfortable. The location is quiet and in a beautiful neighborhood. Very close to the beach. Sitting on the front and back porches was extremely relaxing. I am extremely particular and I can tell you that I don’t have one single complaint about this home. We will definitely be back!
From the owner: "Thank you so much, Chris! We are happy to hear you had a relaxing and enjoyable stay. We appreciate your feedback, and hope your visit again."
We had a wonderful time in Oak Island and Island Belle was a part of the charm that continues to draw my wife and I to the Southeast coastal region.
We hope to visit Oak Island again in a couple of years; it would be great if Island Belle is available upon our return.
From the owner: "Thank you for your kind feedback.
So happy to hear your family had a great time in OKI and enjoyed your stay at Island Belle. He hopes you visit again."
We were fortunate enough to stay in this wonderfully renovated and cozy house with all the modern amenities you could ask for. A large property with plenty of yard and space for family and friends. It’s very close to the beach as well. We definitely plan to visit again and highly recommend to anyone looking for an incredible beach vacation.
Stayed for a week in this beautiful house with my wife and two dogs. During the week, I was able to work remotely with the home’s Wi-Fi service and enjoy the beautiful sunsets on the beach (a short five minute drive). It was incredibly relaxing and comfortable atmosphere. Big comfy couch and tv, backyard grill, and great layout. Loved this place and will be back again next year!
From the owners: We appreciate your feedback and are so happy you enjoyed Oak Island and your stay at Island Belle.
