Ocracoke House Rental Photos and Description
House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-3)
Second Wind cottage is a real home away from home...guests often comment that staying here is like visiting friends.
Great care is taken by the owners to ensure the comfort of every guest. The cottage is perfect for a couple, or a couple with a small child.
It has an open, airy floor plan with lots of windows and two sliding glass doors leading to decks that overlook the canal, a very well-equipped kitchen, and many small touches that help make your stay more pleasurable. We pride ourselves on offering a clean, comfortable, and well maintained cottage.
If you've never been to Ocracoke, you're in for a treat. It's one of the most unique places many will have the chance to visit. With 13 miles of pristine beach, it's no wonder it was voted the number one beach in the country in 2007. It's not hard to fall in love with the easy going, laid back lifestyle.
If you're in the mood to stay busy, there's lots to do from inshore and offshore fishing with native guides, biking, raking your own clams, kayaking and parasailing to shopping and trying one of the many great restaurants on the island.
If you're more into relaxing, kick back on the porch in one of our locally made Adirondack chairs and watch egrets, ducks and otters off the back deck, or chill out with a book or movie from the house.
If you have been here before, there's always a few new places to check out and a chance to rediscover why you came to Ocracoke in the first place.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We came to Ocracoke for a getaway from home responsibilities, it has been more than we ever hoped for. This cottage keeps growing on us - don't want to leave!
The cottage is charming. It gave us each privacy and yet common area. We adored eating on the lower deck and grilling outside.
We found all the dishes, cooking utensils and even spices we needed. Everything was immaculate! Love the decor - kept finding a wall art I hadn't taken in fully.
We visited every shop that was open - great breakfast at Dajio, Thai Moon take out was perfect on a rainy night. Loved Zillie's.
Obviously, I could go on and on about our week but this fabulous dwelling enhanced our stay.
The people here are so down to earth, personable and full of information. My husband spent time visitine with the shopkeepers as I perused the wares! We did take a day to Hatteras and enjoyed the lighthouses but couldn't wait to return to 'our island'.
Thank you Steph and Larry for providing such a lovely, comfortable accommodation. If everyone enjoyed this stay as much as we did, the island would become quite crowded!
