About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bathroom modern house with open floor plan is perfect for family gatherings. Enjoy your cup of coffee on the expansive screened porch nestled in the trees, or prepare your fresh local seafood feast in the well equipped kitchen.

If you know the Outer Banks, then you know that Ocracoke Island is the "Pearl" of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. This house is centrally located on a dead end street within walking/biking distance to everything in the village. Only a short bike ride or drive, and you will find yourself on one of the most beautiful beaches in the country. Also we are just a day trip away from Hatteras Island and Nags Head!

The master bedroom has a king and private bath. The second bedroom has a queen, twin trundle bed, and a twin mattress in loft. The third bedroom has a full bed. Linens are not provided but are available on the island for rental.

Gulf stream fishing is one of the more exciting activities you can experience on your Ocracoke vacation. If you plan to bring along your own boat, we can help coordinate deep water dockage in Silver Lake Harbor for an additional fee.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for the use of your lovely home! We had such a great time on Ocracoke, despite the rain, mostly due to the fact we had such a nice retreat. My husband really appreciated all the construction details and in fact said it made him jealous!

We really loved the house and the yard and the great care you have taken and shared with us. My favorite feature is the fig tree out back and it provided a tasty snack I indulged in each day---Paradise!

Thanks so much

Absolutely Adorable Home - Be sure to BYO LINENS!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this place - I'm completely in love with the floor plan - lots of natural light and thought given to green materials. My husband is a carpenter and would have loved the interior finishing-very well done. It was perfect for our group of four adults but would also be a kids' paradise. The loft bed - so fun! The location is very convenient to everything but also out of the fray, if there is such a thing on Ocracoke. It was a little bit of a bummer to get there after a long trip and realize we were on our own for linens. It is definitely in the description (you just have to click the "Read More" button). I feel like that's important info for others to know in advance since the nearest place to get linens is Hatteras. Other than the impromptu search for linens and getting waylaid for a day by the ferries not running, our stay was delightful. I also wanted to add that the Owner was great to work with - always very quick responses.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome house- huge kitchen and living room area along with a screened in porch to fit everyone in and enjoy meals! Brian was great to work with and answered any questions I had. Great location in Ocracoke- could walk to restaurants, grocery store at the end of the road, graceful bakery around the corner and easy drive right to the ORV beach. Great design to the house, slept 6 comfortably- the loft is located in the second bedroom with a small bed so keep that in mind for parties over 6.

Will definitely be staying here again! Had all that we needed for a beach vacation (outdoor shower was great too!) Thanks again to Brian!

A beautiful, livable home

  • 5 of 5

On this, our 5th trip to Ocracoke, we've found our favorite rental house.

The location is ideal for a family getaway. It's on a dead-end street (no through traffic) in the middle of what you'll need on the island. Nearly everything was within a short walk. We'd run out of creamer by our last day, so I started the coffee, biked to the Variety Store, and was back about the time it finished brewing.

The main level's open floor plan is thoughtfully laid out and furnished. The large seating area, huge dining table, and kitchen with breakfast bar seating allow everyone to be together while doing their own things.

The screened-in porch is fantastic. We had a massive jigsaw puzzle laid out on the dining table inside, so we ate all of our home-cooked dinners on the big table on this porch. It was particularly delightful when it stormed during our meal! Three ceiling fans and a rope light surrounding the ceiling add to the ambiance. There are also two separate seating areas thoughtfully placed for reading, chatting, or watching the world go by.

The three comfortable bedrooms are on the top floor. Two of them allow the option of overlooking the living room below via a hinged wall panel.

I've rented a lot of vacation homes in my life but have never had one with a kitchen as well-stocked as this. Along with the standard tools and appliances, there were an apple slicer, citrus juicer, salad spinner, placemats and cloth napkins, even a sushi mat! All the pots, pans, and baking sheets you could need. There were plenty of filters in the cabinet for the drip coffee maker.

The contemporary décor was attractive and highly functional. Whoever built this home knew what they were doing. We were delighted to occupy it for the week and look forward to returning to it in coming years.

Lovely home with a fabulous porch!

  • 5 of 5

This house is close to groceries and an easy bike ride to the beach. The main room is spacious with plenty of room to share cooking and dining. Th porch space is especially pleasant because it is nestled in pines. The trees surrounding the house give the house a private feel. We ha a wonderful time!
