About Helena Stevens

We have had this lovely cottage since 2003. We also have a second home in Virginia Beach, VA. We love the ocean and bird watching and the nature in this area is breathtaking.

Helena Stevens purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Helena Stevens chose Ocracoke

This remote area is perfect for relaxation and meditation. The cottage itself is very centrally located, but far enough off the beaten path to get away from it all when you want.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is 5 minutes from the beaches, walking distance to Variety Store, Howard's Pub. Private Playground and unobstructed 360 view of marsh and pond.

Great Vacation! Can't wait to stay here again!

Great Vacation! Can't wait to stay here again!

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!!

Lovely house in Ocracoke!

  • 5 of 5
We loved this house so much! It was great for a big group, and the screened porch where we ate dinner every night and drank coffee every morning is so lovely. Secluded and quiet, yet completely accessible to the rest of the island--the grocery store is right down the road!

Perfect place for a quiet and relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5
This house was exactly what we had in mind. The location is perfect: close to everything, but still secluded. My 4-year old just loved the marsh and the ducks living there. Every day we had to go see them, including the day we left when she wanted to go say goodbye.

The house was spotless when we arrived, and the pictures don't really do the place justice. My daughter was thrilled when we pulled up and she saw the playset in the yard, and it was so nice for her to have way to entertain herself. All the bedrooms are large and airy, and the beds are very comfortable. This is something I'm always concerned about with vacation rentals, since one we did a few years ago had absolutely terrible beds. That is not the case here at all - everyone slept very soundly. The air conditioning works very well, which is nice for people like us who are from a dry climate and not used to more humidity in the air. We spent most evenings sitting on the screened-in porch, watching fireflies and listening to the wind and the ocean in the distance.

The owner was quite patient answering all my questions before we arrived. The only thing we needed while we were there was more drinking water, and someone brought that over within 15 minutes of our call.

Ocracoke is a perfect place to relax and get away from it all. There are places along the highway with beach access, and even at the height of what I'm assuming is busy season (July) they are not crowded at all. The first day we found a beautiful spot, but the waves were pretty big and my daughter could not go too far into the ocean. If you have little ones, head up to the other end of the island by the Hatteras ferry, and the water there is very calm. Howard's Pub, Jason's Restaurant, and Cafe Atlantic are all excellent places to eat. The town is full of little shops, many selling things made by local/regional artists. If you're a reader, check out Books to be Red. There are a couple of great candy stores too, on the highway close to Howard's Pub. We planned to go to Portsmouth Island, but woke up that morning to rain and lightning. We were sorry to miss it.

One local couple we talked to said that Ocracoke isn't for everyone; if you want putt-putt golf, casinos, and chain restaurants then you need to go elsewhere. Very true! The whole island, other than the town, is part of the National Seashore and protected by the National Park Service, which ensures that it will not become over-developed. We can't wait to come back!

Perfect Cottage in Ocracoke!

  • 5 of 5
We recently had a ladies retreat to celebrate our best friend getting married, this quite large cottage was TOO PERFECT! It's in a great location...walking distance from Howards Pub and the road is directly across from the General Store. Beach acess is right down the road! The inside had cute beach decor, rooms were large, and having 3 bathrooms worked out GREAT (considering there were 8 ladies!). Loved the HUGE screened in porch (kept the bugs out!) Morning and evening views were beautiful too!
We will booking our stay back again next year and HIGHLY recommend your family stay here!
