About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

'Jettshouse' is unique to Ocracoke in that it sits well off the road on a very large lot, providing great privacy. There is room to park a boat. It is located a short distance from the village, within easy walking and biking of shops, restaurants, pubs and all the other activities Ocracoke has to offer.

This house is fairly new to the rental market and all of the furniture and amenities are fairly new as well. There's a great stereo system and HD flat screen tv's. Amenities also include a gas grill for outdoor cooking, an outdoor shower, and a fish cleaning bench.

Ocracoke Island is a gem in and of itself and this house is truly one of the best rental values available!!

Note: We also own '24 Pompano Place' which is listed on VRBO. It is located next door to 'Jettshouse'. Ideal for large groups that would like to have 2 houses during the same period. Listing #238375

About Dixie Lum

My wife, Dixie and I, live in Winchester, Virginia and fell in love with Ocracoke almost twenty years ago. I retired from TWA/American Airlines as a B-767 Captain in March, 2013. We spend our time now managing our rental property in Winchester and Ocracoke. We are beginning to spend more time on Ocracoke, now that I have retired. We have five children between us. Mine and hers. The kids grew up vacationing on Ocracoke and continue to enjoy the Island as adults. As a pilot and aircraft owner, Dixie and I usually fly down when we come, making the normally eight hour drive, in one hour and twenty-five minutes. We both enjoy the beach, relaxing and reading. I enjoy the fantastic surf and offshore fishing.

Dixie Lum purchased this house in 2005

A perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for a family of four. We were close enough to ride a bike and golf cart to all the amenities. The home was spacious, and clean. Dixie the home owner was accommodating to answering any questions we had and only a call away.

Wonderful home and yard, close to town

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed visiting Jettshouse which is conveniently located close to town. Bikes were a must on this vacation as it made experiencing all that Ocracoke offers so much easier. The home was clean and quiet with ample room to play yard games in the well maintained front yard.

Lovely, clean, quiet

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful four day stay (October surf fishing) at Jettshouse. It was clean, uncluttered, everything worked well (internet, TV, heat, cooling, appliances). The setting is special, off the road, so very quiet. We plan to return.

A week at Jettshouse

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the pleasure of staying in Jettshouse for a week. We rode bikes, grilled out, and played on the beach every day! Our 3 year old son had a blast and we can not wait to go again next year. Everything is almost in walking distance and the house is clean and slept 6 comfortably.
