About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-4)

This cute cabana has a screened porch where you can relax and enjoy company among the shade and privacy of manicured Live Oak and Cedar. It’s like your sitting out in nature without the bugs. The small and very clean living space includes a surprising number of amenities from home, including a full kitchen with utensils and cookware. The loft bedroom includes two twins that can be combined to make a queen, but if the ship’s stairs are too steep for you, there is a permanent day bed downstairs with a pull-out trundle bed stored beneath.

The back deck leads to an outdoor shower, because what could be better after a day at the beach than an outdoor shower. And speaking of the beach, the beach of Ocracoke Island was rated the “#1 beach in America” by Dr. Beach, in 2007. A short drive or bike ride gets you there or to the waterfront of the Silver Lake Inlet where many sunset dining and shopping opportunities await.

And as far as dining and shopping goes, a short walk takes you to Ocracoke Coffee and Back Porch Restaurant along Back Road (a secret shopping district at Ocracoke.) A little further and you’re on Highway 12 (the main drag) with all kinds of shops and restaurants.

Compact but very livable

  • 5 of 5

This is not a luxury property but has some features that make it a great value. Although the enclosed living space is limited the screened porch/eating area is a big bonus. I made substantial use of the back deck area which was not shown in the listing photos. I was surprised by the small number of mosquitoes visiting while siting outside (even at night) as there are many on Ocracoke Island. The outdoor shower was a real treat after coming from a long afternoon at the beach. I found the location to be very good as the cottage is at the beach end of the village and not far to the island grocery store. This was a convenient stop on the way to and from the beach. Ocracoke Coffee is also an easy 8-10 minute walk away.

The host was very helpful and answered any questions quickly through the HomeAway app. A break down in the WiFi after a stormy night was also quickly resolved after messaging . Thanks. I enjoyed my stay and would return.

Cozy cottage with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best stay at Fool's Bet in Ocracoke. It's exactly what our family needed for an affordable beach week. We have two boys 15 and 11, so we each had a bed, to collapse into every night, after a full day of fun outside. We walked to Ocracoke Coffee in the morning, the boys loved playing checkers there (even though they have wifi) that never happens! We loved the beach. The weather for the week didn't sound great, but it ended up being beautiful most of the time. The cottage has everything you need for a simple relaxing vacation. We will be back and bringing our bikes, next time! Thank you Lopresti Family for use of your cottage!

Nice Little Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice little cottage. We had enough room for the two of us most times and really enjoyed the screened in porch. Plenty of room to entertain on the porch. The out door shower was a treat making it easy to get rid of the sand we collected at the beach. Kitchen was equipped fairly well, nice selection of books and old movies. The trip upstairs is a bit steep but manageable. The trundle bed was OK but what is really needed is a double or queen size bed for a couple... we made do. This cottage is fine for a couple and up to 2 small children. This was our first experience renting on the Island and it was a good one. Thanks Marc.

Perfect little beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect little cottage for those seeking a charming, clean, affordable, simple, cute, tiny place to stay while enjoying the abundance of outdoor activities on Ocracoke. We loved the screened in room and the outdoor shower. We will be back next summer for sure.
