Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: I vacationed as a child on the Outer Banks,and also as a 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 exist 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. The water is right there to see birds and hear the sounds of the waters.
