We fell in love with The Cottages of Ocean Isle Beach the first time we drove into the neighborhood. The craftsmanship was the first thing we noticed but that was followed very quickly by the friendliness and professionalism we were met with. We were able to customize our home and were encouraged to visit and watch the progress as much as possible.
