Overview

Ocracoke Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

This building was constructed in l993 and used for 15 years as a working art studio. It is set back off the road, amidst giant live oak and cedar trees, and sits alongside my home, one of the islands designated historic houses. The two buildings are joined by an open breezeway behind the main gate, but when guests are in residence in the studio, we both have separate entrances on opposite sides of the property. The Studio provides all the comforts of home in a private, quiet and tree shaded setting, with lots of attention to detail. I have tried to make the Studio somewhere I would want to stay, well cared for with lots of personality.

You enter through a totally enclosed courtyard space complete with hot/cold out door shower and grill. There are outdoor chairs for lounging and a dining table for mealtime. The courtyard is also perfect for your furry traveling companion as it is totally closed in, allowing your pet a bit of leash free time without worry. Your parking is right outside the gate, so getting in and out is a breeze. Inside, the studio is colorful, unique and furnished for your complete comfort with two antique double beds, sofa, chair and ottoman, flat screen TV, free NETFLIX stream, IPod dock, DVD player, fully equipped kitchen and bath with tub and shower. Up the captains ladder is a sleeping loft featuring a second double bed. Both beds are made with 600 thread count sheets, down comforters and pillows. All towels are provided except beach towels.

This is the perfect romantic and private getaway for two. The Studio is located within walking distance of the Coffee Company, Zillie's, the harbor front and all downtown shops and restaurants. Books, board games and limited video library are included.

About The Owner

I accidently wandered onto Ocracoke more than 30 years ago and have been here ever since. A chef and artist by trade, the island has been an immensely satisfying place to live and work. I love to start my day with a swim and see where it goes from there. The studio is adjacent to my house and I love taking special care of this unique vacation rental.

The Owner purchased this studio in 1980

Guestbook comments from the owner

Arrived and walked into patio and said "Wow"! Here a week and love coming "home" after a long day of playing on Ocracoke. On Wednesday, we took ferry to Hatteras and drove to Currituck, saw the lighthouse and started the drive back to see all four lighthouses on the Outer Banks. It's a great day's drive and ferry is only 1/2 hour and free. On Ocracoke we hiked, beached and shopped. Had great weather. Meeting Debbie was great, very caring and lots of knowledge of the island. Loved the outdoor shower, too. Will be back! Bri, Di and Dewdrop (our dog).

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I booked The Studio in October to get away for a long weekend and a little R&R after a hectic, busy summer, and this beautiful little place couldn't have fit the bill more perfectly! Debbie was so welcoming, and although we didn't really cross paths with her during the rest of our stay, she made it super clear that she was always available if we needed anything. Perfect for when we just wanted to be alone and chill.

The Studio decor has a warm, homey, artsy, eclectic vibe. It was very clean with several amenities and a well-stocked kitchen. So if want to cook, you really only need to bring your food and beverages. The outdoor, enclosed patio was cute and quaint as well.

There are 2 full-size beds - one on the main level and one in the loft. We're tall people so the bed was a tad small for us, but it was super comfortable nonetheless. One would have to be pretty comfortable with the ladder/stairs leading up to the loft, so we just stayed on the main level.

Being mid October we were blessed with near perfect weather. Rented a golf cart for a day and spent one of the days just zipping around the whole town site seeing, stopping at shops and popping in different restaurants along the way. Happily not too many places had closed for the season yet, so most everything was still open.

We spent the better part of another day going over to Portsmouth Island to do some fishing. The charter boat taking everyone over gives you the choice of going to see the abandoned town or just dropping you off right on the beach. We opted for the latter with all our fishing gear, and were treated to a beautiful day of beach combing, fishing and relaxing. From what we heard from the others who explored the town: Bring.Bug.Spray. Lots of it. We didn't have a problem with that on the beach.

Although we cooked in for a lot of our meals, we also tried many of the local restaurants. We would highly recommend Dajio's, Zillie's and for a phenomenal burger, don't miss SmacNallys!

We would definitely come back and stay at The Studio in a heart beat. It was a perfect, relaxing getaway and definitely made us feel like we were on "island time."

Beauty and bliss - exactly where you'll want to be

Beauty and bliss - exactly where you'll want to be

This is a perfect place to enjoy Ocracoke at its best. Can't say enough about the location and space. The studio and fenced patio space are private, pretty, and relaxing. (Clean and comfortable too. Love that outdoor shower.) It's like living there, if you were so lucky.

There are plenty of good places to eat on Ocracoke, or you can utilize the full kitchen to enjoy your own meals and snacks. (We did both.)

Parking is right at the garden gate, with many of the island's best attractions within super easy walking or cycling distance.

The owner, Debbie, was available but unobtrusive, which was great as we just wanted time alone

Couple of details:
* We loved sleeping in the loft but you have to be comfortable with ladder climbing to use it.
* The studio offers A/C climate control, a fan or natural ventilation. We used all three as needed to suit conditions, with a preference for going natural when possible.
* Speaking of natural, Ocracoke has biting insects. Choose your own coping mechanism, but expect to deal with that!
* Try to arrive with a minimum of extra packaging that will end up as trash. It's a remote island. Everything has to be hauled in and hauled out. It's a good idea to treat your visit as upscale camping, with a little extra attention to what you bring and the kind of impact your stay will have on the surroundings.

This was a great way to enjoy a special place. We came off-season in September and would recommend that as an excellent travel month. No crowds. Outstanding beaches and the swimming is still delightfully warm.

Wonderful stay!

The pictures do not do the studio justice. It is a great oasis full of relaxation. It's very private. It's in a great central location that makes walking to the village accessible and enjoyable. We absolutely loved our stay and hope to come back again.

Perfect OffSeason Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
After a hectic several months in Asheville, my wife and I were searching for a quiet retreat before the holidays. Ocracoke and this rental both fit our needs perfectly! The pet friendly nature of both the island and the house were a big draw. Weather in December was far better than we would have hoped. Spent hours on the beach every day with the dogs, biked for miles wandering about the island, and walked everywhere else. Rented kayaks one day for paddling in the sound, ate lots of oysters, drank good beers, and even played pub trivia one night at Gaffer's.

Not a lot of amenities on the island this deep in the off-season, but it was paradise for us. Walked for hours and miles on the beach without seeing a soul.

Deb was a great host. We overlapped with her for just the first few days, but she made it clear she was available.

The accomodations were quite comfy, very pleasant decor, well-stocked kitchen, good beds.

My only regret is that the seafood market wasn't open for us to do more of our own cooking. That's the flip-side to all the peace and quiet!

We will definitely be back again.

Great stay at The Studio!

  • 4 of 5
We stayed in The Studio for 8 days at the end of August. Everything was exactly as described: the apartment was the right size for two people to spend a week comfortably, the kitchen was great for cooking all that fresh local seafood, and the property was clean and well maintained. The arrangements were easy to make and Debra was a pleasure to communicate with. We were especially amazed at the solitude and privacy we enjoyed even though we were in a residential neighborhood! It was our first trip to Ocracoke and we enjoyed every minute.
We took advantage of the seafood market and did a lot of cooking while we were there. We also enjoyed meals at the Back Porch restaurant and Dajio. Each day we explored a different part of the beach or the town and read a ton of books. Zillie's was a nice happy hour treat too.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are looking forward to a return visit!

First family vacation

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our first family vacation with our 5 month old daughter, our dog and the two of us. The studio was a perfect place for our small family and a great place to retreat to at the end of the day. The outdoor courtyard made the living space seem bigger when we needed some extra space while our daughter was sleeping and for our dog. The outdoor shower and small charcoal grill were also lovely and we used both. Perhaps the best part about the studio is the location. We enjoyed walking to Ocracoke Coffee in the mornings and Zillie's in the evening. Overall it was very cozy, well decorated, felt private, and a lovely place to stay. Love that it is pet friendly!! As our daughter gets bigger we will need a bigger place to stay but if it is ever just my husband and I (and our dog) again we'd be happy to stay in the studio again!
