  • spotless and comfortable

    "This is our second Christmas Break in OBX. This cottage has everything you need. We walked into a spotless cottage stocked with everything one would need for a weeks stay. Our week included quite a bit of rain and we were very comfortable indoors. Johnny is attentive and I imagine would be great to work with if you had a problem. We had none and our stay was perfect."

  • Best kept secret on Ocracoke!

    "We were hesitant to write a review as we didn't want the best kept secret of Ocracoke out! Baby Duck is a fabulous, magical cottage. We have rented several VRBO properties and this is the best! The cottage is nicely furnished and decorated with a lot of attention to detail. We loved the screened-in porch and barbecue in the yard. The outdoor shower was also great! The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed for cooking and grilling. And a huge plus is that all the items were really good quality. Often when you get a rental vacation home kitchen items are inexpensive -- not at Baby Duck! The loft area was a wonderful get away to read a book and take a nap! The outdoor sink/fish cleaning area was a plus to hose off beach furniture! Thank you to the owners and the on site management company. They answered all our questions and were great to work with! Can't wait until we return!"

  • Unforgettable Valentine Getaway

    "I am writing the review for this place from the comforts of it's living room. I first made contact with Stephanie a few weeks ago inquiring about renting the place for a surprise Valentines getaway for my wife. I basically relied on the perfect 5 star reviews left on this website to make sure I would come out of this "looking like the man." I have gotten to where I rely on reviews for various products. They give a honest first hand account of satisfaction. Hardly ever do you see any product with perfect 5 stars and wonderful testimonies. I am here to tell you that my wife says I am the man! She was very impressed with the choice I had made. So I call it a success. From the first contact I had with Stephanie (and every other up to now) she was very professional and friendly. You could just tell she wanted this to be as special for my wife as I did. This place is all it is advertised be and then some. The pictures don't do it justice. You don't get the feeling you are in a vacation rental. You get the feeling you are at home. I can tell the owner takes great pride in the appearance both inside and out. Cleanliness is an understatement. Thank you Stephanie for sharing your place with us for a memorable Valentine getaway. I couldn't be happier with how it all turned out."

  • Perfect spot!

    "We were looking for a vacation rental that would accommodate a boat and we were lucky enough to find The Ice House! The house is very comfortable and the location is great! We were able to launch the boat and store the trailer at a marina just around the corner. It was great having the boat right in the back yard! A great beach access is just a quick ride down the road making it the perfect location for the surfers in our group. My husband and his friend caught 2 croaker off the dock in the backyard the first morning! They were quickly cleaned and served for breakfast! What a great way to start the vacation! The week included off shore fishing, flounder gigging at night, crabbing off the dock, and clamming in the sound. You really can't ask for more! The owner is extremely nice and very helpful. Sharing his knowledge of the local waterway was beyond helpful! The location does come with a "price". The house is in an unusual location, not exactly a neighborhood. We loved that we were pretty much by ourselves. Be prepared to unplug. TV and internet access are not the best, but that is part of being on the island. Once we got used to it, life is much better without TV and computer! The cargo lift is another one of the best things about this house. Moving in and moving out was SO MUCH EASIER! The second sink in the kitchen turned out to be something else we all liked a lot. The view from the top of the house is spectacular! Sunsets are something to be celebrated and you couldn't ask for a better place for that! My whole family loved the set up of the deck too. All in all, this is a great vacation home! You won't go wrong if you choose The Ice House for your vacation rental!"
