Recent Ocracoke reviews

  • Perfect Choice

    "The Sunfetcher proved to be the perfect choice for us. The water problem, mentioned frequently in these reviews, didn't seem to be that big a problem; basically, it smelled like well water often does at both campgrounds and cottages in Northern Michigan. Buy drinking water and all is fine. The smell dissapated in the shower when we let it run a bit. The important things to us were privacy, relaxation, and convenience; this place had it all. We sometimes felt like we were living in a tree house. Michelle was reponsive and helpful during the entire process of reserving, renting, and inhabiting the cottage. It was convenient to the village; we could and did walk to many spots. We could site on the deck in complete privacy. When we return to Ocracoke, we will definitely choose Sunfetcher if it is available."

  • Treasure Chest is a real treasure!

    "This cozy little, romantic cottage for two, was just what we wanted. It had beautiful sunset views over the sound and everything we needed. Absolutely spotless and the best rental agency ever. What a wonderful vacation!"

  • 10 and Counting

    "My husband and I just returned from the Second Wind cottage a few days ago. We realized that we just finished our 10th visit to this property. While the recent reviews contain all the details about the great amenities, I believe having visited 10 times speaks volumes! We never get tired up of pulling up to this house and staying in the same place. We know it will always be comfortable, clean and full of the simple things you might need to enjoy a place away from home. Here's an example... a pair of scissors. Most of us can't keep a pair handy in our own homes, but when you need them, they're available. (Crazy, but other reviewers have described the normal stuff) It's the simple things in this beautiful cottage that will keep you happy. The owners deserve the biggest compliment though, as they are wonderful people who are truly concerned about your comfort and maintaining a beautiful place to vacation. Thank you for sharing a little piece of Paradise on Ocracoke Island!"
