  • Relaxing Visit!

    "The home was just as it was presented - the owners were responsive from the very first email as well. Access to the bikes that were all ready to ride was a big plus, 2 hammocks for reading very relaxing, screened porch with radio to play games, comfortable bed rooms. Home was clean and well maintained. Rode bikes to beach in the morning, out to shops. Ate at Dajio, Ocracoke Coffee, Howards Pub and had take out from the Thai place - all recommended by the owners and all enjoyable. Nice atmosphere at Dajio on the patio. Thank you for a wonderful week!"

  • An Island Home with Views of Pamlico Sound and the Community of Ocracoke

    "We found the house to be clean and in good order. The kitchen is well equipped and there is ample counter space for food preparation and cupboard space and housing for all of the vacation food goodies. The house is located on a quiet street in a very peaceful neighborhood. The high speed WIFI is an added plus as are the washing machine and dryer. The bed is very comfortable and the linens are provided. The library of books is very nice, we were able to use the reference books to identify some of the shells we collected from the beach. The views from the elevated deck gives you the perspective of the community of Ocracoke. The deck was a great place to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening. The house's location allows you to walk to the heart of the community and explore the side streets on the way back. Zillie's is a short walk from the house. The owner takes pride in this property, the decor is very homey and welcoming, this made for hours of enjoyment. The owner answered all of our questions in a prompt and complete fashion. We plan on a return trip in the future."

  • Perfect Get-away!

    "Perfect location! Perfect time of year! Perfect home-away-from-home for 2! This cottage had everything we needed. We parked the car when we arrived and never used it again until it was time to leave. The second floor balcony is like an adult's treehouse. The outdoor shower is amazing! The island is beautiful and laid-back. Had a wonderful time!"
