Ocracoke studio description

This building was constructed in l993 and used for 15 years as a working art studio. It is set back off the road, amidst giant live oak and cedar trees, and sits alongside my home, one of the islands designated historic houses. The two buildings are joined by an open breezeway behind the main gate, but when guests are in residence in the studio, we both have separate entrances on opposite sides of the property. The Studio provides all the comforts of home in a private, quiet and tree shaded setting, with lots of attention to detail. I have tried to make the Studio somewhere I would want to stay, well cared for with lots of personality.

You enter through a totally enclosed courtyard space complete with hot/cold out door shower and grill. There are outdoor chairs for lounging and a dining table for mealtime. The courtyard is also perfect for your furry traveling companion as it is totally closed in, allowing your pet a bit of leash free time without worry. Your parking is right outside the gate, so getting in and out is a breeze. Inside, the studio is colorful, unique and furnished for your complete comfort with two antique double beds, sofa, chair and ottoman, flat screen TV, free NETFLIX stream, IPod dock, DVD player, fully equipped kitchen and bath with tub and shower. Up the captains ladder is a sleeping loft featuring a second double bed. Both beds are made with 600 thread count sheets, down comforters and pillows. All towels are provided except beach towels.

This is the perfect romantic and private getaway for two. The Studio is located within walking distance of the Coffee Company, Zillie's, the harbor front and all downtown shops and restaurants. Books, board games and limited video library are included.

          About the owner: I accidently wandered onto Ocracoke more than 30 years ago and have been here ever since. A chef and artist by trade, the island has been an immensely satisfying place to live and work. I love to start my day with a swim and see where it goes from there. The studio is adjacent to my house and I love taking special care of this unique vacation rental.
