After 15 yrs. experience of building eco-friendly houses, our new Ocracoke home has been constructed with as many 'green' features as possible. These features include 'energy star' appliances, bamboo floors, carpet by 'Flor' made from recycled materials, recycled glass tile in showers, slate counters/splashbacks, 'water sense' rated showers faucets and toilets, on-demand water heater, split system HVAC allows individual room control, HardiePanel siding, and built from sustainable forested lumber. We have chosen to include feature walls of washed wood in the dining and living areas and unique touches that make it our home, with a modern aesthetic that bring coastal living into the 21st century. We have made sure the windows made the most of the light and warmth, privacy and ambience.

The layout provides 3 large bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, an open plan living/kitchen/dining area...and then a bonus of another living room with a fully equipped kitchenette. Outside has 4 decks to follow the sun throughout the day and a very large screened porch with a family size table and chairs which is a delightful place to eat in the summer evenings. There are also 2 outdoor showers, one of which is built into an existing tree for a unique 'natural' experience (outdoor showers not available in winter!).

About Tony and Jules

We moved from England to North Carolina to work at ECU in 2001. As soon as we found Ocracoke we moved so our son could attend the school and enjoy the many freedoms Ocracoke offers..and the surf! It has been the most wonderful 'home from home'. Now our son has graduated we are enjoying spending time exploring different places...but when we return to Ocracoke it rejuvenates us like no other place and always feels like home.

Tony and Jules purchased this house in 2013

Why Tony and Jules chose Outer Banks

We came for a weekend, then we came for a week, then we decided we couldn't stay away - the dog refused to leave!

What makes this house unique

The house is very private and it has great space. The light and decks are a wonderful asset; they provide a variety of outside areas for coffee, cocktails and good conversation. The huge windows frame the sunset skies. It has two bedrooms on the first floor level, with the third bedroom and living room being up/down a few steps so it is an excellent space for those wishing for a little separation. Many of our guests have found this area very useful for in-laws.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much! For our first time on Ocracoke, this was the perfect house - great location, great light, great kitchen. We look forward to returning!

lovely place

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five spent a lovely 5 days here, and loved our stay. The house was spacious, clean, and architecturally intriguing. The mini apartment on the back of the house served as a kind of kids' play room for our three boys during the day. We cooked most of our own meals and found everything we needed in the kitchen. Tony and Jules were friendly and accommodating, and we would easily stay here again. Highly recommended.

A nicely appointed and genuinely comfortable home with multiple spots for relaxing indoors and out.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this charming home which included two sitting areas, an island and two tables (kitchen and screened porch) for dining. Perfect for our family of four adults. All new amenities and quiet location. The home was clean and comfortable with a good kitchen inventory including grilling utensils. Tivoli lights outdoors and inside added to a holiday atmosphere. We hope to come back next year!

excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic house, much better than the pictures! Lovely windows, great places to sit and relax.

Ocracoke was cold when we were there, and not much was open...so it was extra special to have a great place to stay.

Tony was super easy to work with. Thank you Tony and Jules for a lovely home.

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday in this beautiful home. It's much bigger than it looks in the photos…and the pictures don't do it justice. We loved having two living rooms, it made it so easy with the kids. It's very clean and modern and a really great design - we want to copy it! The screened porch was a bonus at night. Everyone enjoyed the shops, and the beach was just perfect as always. Got some great shells.

We've had lots of holidays over the years on Ocracoke, and this is the best house we've stayed in by far. The owners were really easy to work with, and everything went very smoothly from the booking and payment side of things. It's nice to have no extras sprung on you. I'd give it more than 5 stars if I could! Great stay.

Absolute Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful weeklong stay at this absolutely beautiful home on Ocracoke Island. Besides the fabulous beach, calling this place home was the highlight of our stay. Comfortable, well appointed, and not a detail overlooked (except for the scant supply of toilet paper). Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay in our home. We provide a 'starter pack' for our guests that includes a couple of toilet rolls, kitchen roll, trash bags, sponge and a tote bag. There are sometimes others left from previous guests. We'll add more paper products to our pack. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.
