About Ellen or Russell Grant

Been off and on Ocracoke since I was a child. Growing up there in the summers. Have many friends there and spend as much time as I can on the island. I live in a small farming community and am also a farmer. Would like to retire to Ocracoke someday...

Ellen or Russell Grant purchased this bungalow in 2014

What makes this bungalow unique

We tried to make it similar to a nice hotel room to be familiar to everyone.This place is close to everything. If you like visiting Ocracoke you know about the local restaurants and bars. Golf carts are popular and for rent everywhere. Bike or clam just off the boat ramp by the ferry landing or fish off the beach.

Perfect chill get away

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect for the individual or couple that just wants to get away and leave it all behind. The accommodations are basic and comfortable. The location is perfect and convenient. I will definitely be coming back! The owners were quick to respond to any inquiries I had. The setting was perfect and I enjoyed all the next door animals!

Thank u

Quiet and relaxing beach town vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The Charter Room was the perfect spot to relax and enjoy life on Ocracoke Island. It's quiet and dark at night, which makes for great sleeping and the roosters make sure you're up early enough to enjoy the entire day.

Small but sufficient

  • 4 of 5

Consider the location closer to a studio or hotel set up, as it has minimal "living" space. The furniture consists of a queen size bed and a few chairs. Nice but could use some updates. As noted by the owners - bring your own towels and sheets. I strongly suggest pillows as well. The owners are very accommodating and readily available if there are any issues. Great rental for a couple or small family (we had a pack and play fit nicely)! Thanks to the Grants for assisting in a great weekend.

Good for couples

  • 4 of 5

This place is nestled in the heart of Ocracoke as walking distance from the marina and the main strip. The owners are pretty responsive even through the late hours and last minute inquiries.

A little about this property, it is between two shops and is attached to an existing house. From the looks of it, it was part of the house which was later converted to a rental space and this is immediately visible. Advertised for 3, but I say that is pushing it, a couple might enjoy and have ample room, but anything more than that is a crowd. Upon walking in, you'd noticed that once a front porch was converted to a living room or something similar (this seem to be an afterthought), divided by an accordion door to the bedroom with a comfortable bed. Keep walking and you'd reach the small kitchen (3ft from the bedroom) to the left that's suitable for 1 person and has microwave and stove, then followed by a locked door which could be the entrance to the main house and across from it is the bathroom.

I can't express enough that this is a small rental. Watch out for the TV with an unsecured stand as it may get tip over and you'd be responsible. Watch out for the bed frame as you walked pass as you'd likely hit the wooden corner piece and you'd be in pain for a while. Key left in the house didn't work so I had to call the owner to get the code to the door, should have been given the first time around. The phone number of one of the owners published on this site is incorrect (to the owner, please verify this).

My overall thought, this is decent for a quick getaway for a couple that don't mind the limited interior space. Kudos to the owners for being flexible on my request and the response times.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. You have done an excellent job of describing the room. In our listing we state it is good for couples or a small family. We do not have it listed for 3 people, that is our maximum that can stay. I thought in my communications with you I explained that it was not good for 4 adults. I am sorry that you hit your leg on the bed. I have changed from a comforter to a bedspread and I guess you no longer see the wood frame. I will tuck the bottom part of the bedspread so that no one else hits it. Also, thanks for the warning on the tv, we have never had anyone say that it was in an unsecured stand since we have it in the bookshelf, but we will be sure to secure it the next time we are there. I have looked all over the listing site and our phone numbers are correct, I am not sure what happened there. I regards to the key, sometimes folks do not see the small key slot that is on the code part of the door. I gave you the code when I accepted your reservation, so a key is really not necessary.
