Why Martha Troxler chose Harkers Island

We chose this property because we fell in love with Harkers Island. We enjoy the quiet island lifestyle with beautiful beaches and few crowds. Harkers Island offers great fishing, kayaking, and bird watching. Our home is located on a quiet, dead end street with water views of West Bay. The screened in porch is a great spot to have a morning cup of coffee while enjoying the sunshine.

Very pleasant cottage in attractive location

  • 5 of 5

Everything we needed was there. Very comfortable and welcoming, and good value. The view over the open area towards the water was a pleasant surprise; sitting on the deck to enjoy it must be nice in summer (it was too cold for us at this time of the year). We would have liked to stay longer, and will probably return some time.

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Inviting Island Cottage was a lovely place to stay for a weekend on Harkers Island. The cottage had just enough room for my family and everything we needed to be comfortable. The bridges were covered in ice the day we left and the owner was gracious and made sure we knew we could stay if needed. We will rent here again the next time we visit the Island.

Relaxing in December

  • 4 of 5

We spent a very relaxing few days in Harkers Island. The cottage was clean and well equipped with games and books for the family to enjoy. I wish the weather had been more cooperative. Cold rain the first day kept us inside. Then extreme cold and wind on the day we rode the ferry to Ocracoke made us realize how much we appreciated the warmth of the cottage. We hope to return in the spring.

Clean and Comfortable Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at "Inviting Island Cottage". It is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood with views of the bay. It is very clean and had what we needed for our stay. The homeowners had added new furniture in the living room. The homeowners are very accommodating.

It had everything that we needed.

  • 4 of 5

I liked the fact that it was in a residential area instead of a business setting.. Martha came by to make sure we had every thing that we needed.

A new experience for mom

  • 5 of 5

The house was more than we could have asked for. Everything was there that you could ask for. The screen porch was nice to sit on and just view the sound and the quiet. Beds were comfortable and we slept great. Martha was great to work with. We will definitely stay here again.
