Overview

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!

Unforgettable Valentine Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I am writing the review for this place from the comforts of it's living room. I first made contact with Stephanie a few weeks ago inquiring about renting the place for a surprise Valentines getaway for my wife. I basically relied on the perfect 5 star reviews left on this website to make sure I would come out of this "looking like the man." I have gotten to where I rely on reviews for various products. They give a honest first hand account of satisfaction. Hardly ever do you see any product with perfect 5 stars and wonderful testimonies. I am here to tell you that my wife says I am the man! She was very impressed with the choice I had made. So I call it a success. From the first contact I had with Stephanie (and every other up to now) she was very professional and friendly. You could just tell she wanted this to be as special for my wife as I did. This place is all it is advertised be and then some. The pictures don't do it justice. You don't get the feeling you are in a vacation rental. You get the feeling you are at home. I can tell the owner takes great pride in the appearance both inside and out. Cleanliness is an understatement. Thank you Stephanie for sharing your place with us for a memorable Valentine getaway. I couldn't be happier with how it all turned out.

What a wonderful winter get-a-way!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Ocracoke for over 10 years and have stayed in some great and some less than great places. Second Wind is great! The owner was very accommodating when we needed to change our reservation and checked in on us after our arrival to make sure everything was okay, and if we needed a hose to rinse off the salt after a rough ferry ride.

After being duped by many claims of "fully equipped kitchen", we usually travel with a kitchen box of necessities. We decided to chance it this time, bringing only our cast iron skillet. What a pleasure to find a truly fully equipped kitchen. Everything from champagne glasses and real coffee mugs to all the utensils, bowls, trays, pots and pans you will need to cook just about anything. Another plus is the gas range.

We loved the decks even though it was a little too cold to fully enjoy them, but during warmer months, with an Eastern view, you would be able to enjoy a morning sunrise sky, and the late afternoon without being roasted by the sun. And we were able to enjoy a beautiful winter paddle by easily sliding our canoe into the canal for about an hour of sight seeing and nature viewing.

As for the cottage itself: spacious, well appointed and most comfortable. And a really wonderful bed!

Nice Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I spent three nights at Second Wind and we couldn't have asked for better accommodations. This really is a perfect place for couples. The photos do not do it justice. It is clean, updated and well equipped....especially the kitchen. The weather was not great during our stay, so we took advantage of the good selection of movies provided. The owner, (Steph) was very nice and truly wanted us to have a good experience. We have told friends who like to visit Ocracoke how much we enjoyed this cottage. We will return!

10 and Counting

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from the Second Wind cottage a few days ago. We realized that we just finished our 10th visit to this property. While the recent reviews contain all the details about the great amenities, I believe having visited 10 times speaks volumes! We never get tired up of pulling up to this house and staying in the same place. We know it will always be comfortable, clean and full of the simple things you might need to enjoy a place away from home. Here's an example... a pair of scissors. Most of us can't keep a pair handy in our own homes, but when you need them, they're available. (Crazy, but other reviewers have described the normal stuff) It's the simple things in this beautiful cottage that will keep you happy. The owners deserve the biggest compliment though, as they are wonderful people who are truly concerned about your comfort and maintaining a beautiful place to vacation. Thank you for sharing a little piece of Paradise on Ocracoke Island!

The most perfect retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th year to vacation on Ocracoke, and we could not have chosen a more perfect house! My husband, 5 yo daughter, and I had an amazing week biking around the island, soaking up the sun on the beach, and exploring the canal behind the house. To say that this house is well stocked does not do it justice....beach chairs? Check! Umbrella? Check! Completely awesome kitchen with everything you need? Check! We didn't need half of what we brought, because Steph had thought of everything! The house itself is amazing....cool (we slept with the windows open almost every night!), nicely decorated, and so comfortable! I would definitely recommend it for couples and for a couple with a younger child.

Awesome place, awesome weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this beautiful cottage for a 3-night getaway. We were so impressed with this place that we were already planning next year's trip before we even had a whole day there. This cute cottage has plenty of space and really has everything you would need for an enjoyable stay - a comfy bedroom, clean bathrooms, a well-stocked kitchen as far as utensils, dishes, etc, a charcoal grill, beach chairs, plenty of living and "hanging out" space. We were able to see everything we wanted to see on the island by way of the beach cruisers we rented for the weekend. We truly enjoyed the peace, quiet and relaxation of the weekend. A+ - perfect accommodations. Thank you! We will be back.
