  • The most perfect retreat!

    "This was our 4th year to vacation on Ocracoke, and we could not have chosen a more perfect house! My husband, 5 yo daughter, and I had an amazing week biking around the island, soaking up the sun on the beach, and exploring the canal behind the house. To say that this house is well stocked does not do it justice....beach chairs? Check! Umbrella? Check! Completely awesome kitchen with everything you need? Check! We didn't need half of what we brought, because Steph had thought of everything! The house itself is amazing....cool (we slept with the windows open almost every night!), nicely decorated, and so comfortable! I would definitely recommend it for couples and for a couple with a younger child."

  • Another awesome stay!!

    "2014 marked our 5th visit to Ocracoke and our second consecutive year at this amazing house! We had such a great stay in this house last year that we decided to come back again. This house is perfect for our family of five (two adults, two small children and our Miniature Schnauzer, Jack). It has everything we need and plenty of space. It is always very clean and ready for our arrival. The owner is fantastic to work with and always available to answer any questions we've had about local vendors, places to visit, etc. Our trip this year was cut short because of Hurricane Arthur, but we are hoping to get back for a visit this fall! We love Ocracoke and we love this house!!"
