About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bath Cottage with front proch

This newly renovated cottage has a wonderful front porch for enjoying sitting outside and relaxing. It is a one bedroom, one bath, open floor plan with living room and kitchen. The rental could accommodate 2 couples if one couple does not mind sleeping on a roll away bed and couch. The kitchen is very basic, if you are looking to cook gourmet meals, this is NOT the place for you. The location is within walking distance to Silver Lake and the shops and restaurants and spitting distance from the British Cemetery. The beach is a mile from the rental. There is a Smart TV in both the bedroom and living room with internet and cable. You will need your own Netflix, Hulu or Amazon account, and for those that are not tech savvy, we have cable. When you look at the photos, you will not see a TV, because we are still in the process of getting everything to Ocracoke, but by time your vacation rolls around the Buccaneer will be tested and everything should be perfect. We do NOT post on Craigslist, so if you see it there it is not us renting it. We only go through VRBO/Home Away.

Clean & dog friendly— a plus!

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time during our 2 night stay. Loved that we could have our dog with us. Clean & didn’t want for anything. Enjoyed sitting on the front porch in the afternoon. Even though it was a hot day, there was this great breeze!

This is just right for two people, cute deck area to sit and eat and people watch but not noisy.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much, renovations are nice and the little house has a lot of character. My only suggestions are put second air conditioner in bedroom or a box fan to pull the cold air to bedroom. The air conditioner in living area works great and can freeze you out; but, the air just doesn’t get down hallway into bedroom well. It wasn’t super hot in bedroom just too warm for my liking.The bedroom has no closet so would be nice to have some hooks for hanging things and bench to put suitcase on. My second suggestion would be a non stick frying pan.The bathroom was great and love antique cabinet over the toilet and the bead board .Also really liked the accent wall in the living area. The TVs work great and I had no problems using the induction cook top.

Better than the description!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 loved our accommodations in Ocracoke! This house was perfect for our needs. The owners have done a lovely job, and the furnishings are comfortable. The twin roll-a-way bed is very comfortable and would be comfy for an adult. We were able to cook a delicious meal, especially because of the charcoal grill. We felt lucky to come across this rental, with an excellent location (you can walk to the golf cart rental agency up the road)! Thanks for a great stay!

Great little cottage

The Buccaneer was in superb shape - everything freshly renovated, new, clean, and exactly as described in the listing. Arrival went very smoothly and the owner was prompt in replying to our one question. Recommended!
