I have vacationed in Ocracoke for many years but this was our first time staying at Pat's place. We loved this house. It was secluded and very quiet. We had great views of sun rises and sunsets.
The house had 3 bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as a game room with a futon. All the rooms were very comfortable. The house was very clean. This house was the most updated place I've stayed in Ocracoke. The kitchen had everything you would need to cook a meal. The living room was comfortable and we loved the screened in porch.
One of the reasons that we rented this house was that we had access to the pool at Blackbeard's lodge. We had 2 little kids and having a pool was a huge plus!
We went the week after a hurricane hit Ocracoke and the house was fine, but the water was a little yellow. They told us about it and it wasn't a problem for us. I imagine that all of the island was the same. They provided us with bottled water for drinking and cooking. The only other thing that would have been nice is if there was a hose to rinse your feet off when we got in from the beach. There may have been one and someone took it - we didn't ask, but that was the only thing missing. I thought it would have been mosquito city being so close to the lake/pond, but it wasn't. The location of the house allowed us to always enjoy the breeze that most houses in the village don't get. I can't wait to stay here again!!
