|The enchanting Marsh House on Ocean Isle. Over 8,000 sq ft. of beauty by the sea.
A captivating place to be…with five welcoming porches and warm sea breezes.
A house by the sea…is such a dreamy place to be. We had the privilege and honor of staying at the lovely beach home of a friend recently. The memories we made will last a lifetime. Days of warm sea breezes and salty air. Long walks on the beach looking for shells. Midday naps with the windows open to the soft sea breezes. Nightly swims under a jeweled sky. Dreaming through the twilight to the sounds of the ebb and flow of the ocean tides and the sea birds quietly calling over the marsh. Waking up to glistening sunny days and sapphire skies. Soft days…peaceful days. Days filled with laughter and family. Days of healing from recent battles. Battles with cancer & sickness & grief. Blessed days.
|The back yard of this glorious home on the marsh at Ocean Isle Beach. Three porches to soak in the warmth of the sun and the salty sea air.|
|The fresh new pier that my brother in law helped to build.
This pier is the length of a football field. Such a lovely long walk to view the marsh & wild life there.
View from the top back porch. Gorgeousness!

The beautiful pool.
Middle back porch. The kids enjoyed eating their lunch out here on the picnic table.
Swimming with cousins in the pool. Fun for all!
My little miss…enjoyed the porches and the watching the sea birds.
The grand entry to the house. The wood floors were beautiful.
Stair way to the third floor rooms.
We got plenty of exercise, just walking from one end of the house to the other.
The house also had an elevator that ran to all three floors.
The first door on the right is to the house elevator.
The dining room.
The living area. I loved the ceiling in this very large room. It was big enough to be a small gymnasium. I sure would hate to have to mop all of those floors!
View of the very large kitchen. Didn’t have to worry about bumping into anybody. LOL
More of the kitchen and breakfast room.
Standing in the living room, looking towards the kitchen.
The wet bar in the kitchen.
Guest room with two queen beds.
A big bedroom.
One of the many bathrooms. I loved the tile work in this one. Beautiful!
Coming back towards the living room from one of the bedroom wings of the house.
Another big bedroom. Eleven of us stayed in this house together, and we did not even come close to using all of the beds in this place.
Me on the third floor landing with my angel baby.
The third floor landing/another bedroom.
Yet another bedroom.
And another. I did not get pictures of all of the bedrooms. But you get the picture.
LOL It was BIG!
Headed to the beach. Just a five minute walk from the Marsh House.
The view from the front porch. Street View.
The gorgeous palms in front of the house.
We saw so many deer on the island. These visited with us on the beach!
Making the five minute walk to the beach.
Flying kites…one of our favorite things to do at the beach.
Care for a little football on the beach?
Oh, yes, he IS a happy boy!
The Ocean Isle water tower.
We also had access to a second house, that was on the beach front.It was very convenient to just drive there, park the car and walk out onto the beach!
