Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Choose The Islander Inn This Summer!

Tuesday, March 10th, 2015

10. We’re an oceanfront hotel in the quiet island paradise known as Ocean Isle Beach, NC – who doesn’t love going to sleep and then waking up to the sound of waves crashing?

9. Ocean Isle Beach is removed from the crowds, hustle, and bustle of Myrtle Beach, Wilmington, Carolina Beach, and Wrightsville Beach, but all of these areas remain an easy day trip excursion from our island.

8. GOLF! Coastal North Carolina is a golfer’s dream. We can easily set you up with tee times at The Pearl or one of our area’s numerous other acclaimed courses.

7. Seafood lovers will rejoice in knowing that the freshest catches from the Atlantic Ocean will be served daily throughout the summer at The Isles Restaurant & Tiki Bar, which is located just 1.5 miles from our hotel. Also, nearby Calabash, NC holds its claim to fame as the “Seafood Capital of the World.” 

6. There are 4 distinct swimming options available at The Islander Inn. Guests may choose from taking a dip in our indoor pool and hot tub, basking in the sunshine in our outdoor pool, or enjoying the salty water of the Atlantic ocean.

5. We have on-site laundry facilities for guests. This may not sound like a huge deal, but there’s a LOT of sand on the beach and a great deal of it will inadvertently get on your clothes…perhaps even clothes you hoped to wear again during your vacation. This small perk turns out to be a huge treat for our guests.

4. Our tiki hut will be open from Memorial Day – Labor Day, and it will offer you the chance to purchase ice cold adult (or other) beverages while relaxing and enjoying the warm Carolina sunshine.

3. The Islander Inn is a pet-friendly hotel! We know that your pets are very much a part of your family, and we welcome you to bring them to our inn. Call us directly at (888) 325-4753 to inquire about making a reservation for you and your furry friends.

2. We offer thoughtful services and amenities for all of our guests. Our oceanfront rooms are equipped with 42″ plasma high-definition televisions. All of our rooms feature microwaves, mini-fridges, coffeemakers, and free local calls. Complimentary amenities of the hotel include a daily continental breakfast, parking, and WiFi throughout the property.

Tips for Decorating with Seashells from Ocean Isle Beach Oceanfront Hotel

Monday, April 18th, 2011

Tips for Decorating with SeashellsOne of the most enjoyable experiences our Ocean Isle Beach, NC hotel guests have is collecting seashells along the shoreline. But after you’ve collected them in your bucket, washed them and brought them home, what do you do with them then? We’ve compiled a list of tasteful and unique decorating tips for your souvenir seashells!

For a classic look, large glass vases or clear lamps are always an elegant way to show off your seashells. Instead of a generic bowl filled with seashells, try filling a seashell shaped bowl with shells. For a more eclectic look, hot glue seashells directly onto a picture frame, jewelry box or even small end table. Make your larger seashells, sanddollars and starfish stand out on a mantle.

If you’d like to bring the sea decorations into your bathroom, check out this shower curtain liner accented with seashells!  Use this same technique on your porch or deck with this seashell garland, or seashell wind chimes. If you’re ready to get collecting and decorating now, book your summer vacation now! Contact our Ocean Isle Beach, NC hotel manager online or call us today at 888-325-4753!

Photography Tips for Beach Sunsets

Wednesday, December 22nd, 2010

NC Beach PhotographerNowadays it seems everyone is an amateur photographer! So who couldn’t use helpful tips from Wilmington, NC professional photographer Stephanie Moore of Moore Photography. Photos of sunsets and sunrises are always popular, so we asked Stephanie to share her tips for photographing at those times of day. Let us know how your photos turn out next time you stay in one of our Ocean Isle Beach, NC oceanfront hotel rooms!

When photographing people during a sunset or sunrise:

  • Choose to start about an hour before sunset or sunrise
  • Point the subjects to the right or left of the sun, not straight in to it
  • Have fun with it! Try shooting a silhouette with the sun behind your subject
  • Try different angles and play with the long shadows that will appear as the sun sets or rises
