Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: I vacationed on the Outer Banks as a child and also as the young married wife of a dental student. Ocracoke still has the old feel of what going to the beach is all about: being with family, soaking in the sun, making sand castles, and just enjoying life in the moment.

Why the Owner Chose Ocracoke, NC, USA:
My husband and I fell in love with the relaxed village community that exists on Ocracoke and our wonderful house that brings a feeling of closeness to us when we are there.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Enjoy your morning coffee on the screened-in porch as you experience the closeness of life on a canal. On the water you see birds and fishermen passing in their boats, and hear the sounds of the natural wildlife. Mallard families explore the waters as well. Children young and old love to fish or catch crabs in the canal.
