The back of this
home is directly fronted on a canal waterway. These canals are
manmade. Some of the older canals have natural edges, and the newer ones
have nicer concrete sides to them. 7 Leland is on one of the concrete
canals, with deep water, and can handle boat travel, even at low tide. This canal waterway is tied into the
Intracoastal Waterway a short distance away. At Ocean Isle Beach, there is a "beach
access" street every several blocks. Leland Street is one of the
"beach access" streets, so the walk to the beach is a straight
from the house of approximately 230 yards.
Leland is in a very
quiet and peaceful part of the island, as well, making this an outstanding spot
for a family group of all ages. The home is located in the east central part of the island,
about 14 blocks
from the main island road.
The home is nicely furnished, with
a focus on "casual". Everything is modern, fresh, and clean. It is
beachy and bright. The décor is bright and airy and well furnished throughout .

There are also 2 full baths, upstairs. The master bedroom on main level
has a King, and the other bedroom on the main level has 2 Double Beds.
Upstairs is a bedroom with a King, one with 2 double beds, plus the
open loft area with 2 Trundle beds, a great area for the kids. The home is set
up for a capacity of 14, although it has bedding for 16.
