Overview

Ocracoke House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Ocracoke Island is the 'jewel' of the Outer Banks. Located on the southern tip of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, Ocracoke Island is only accessible by ferries from Hatteras and Mainland North Carolina. It's wide, unspoiled beaches have consistently been rated one of the 'TOP TEN' in the country year after year.

Ocracoke Island is 13 miles long with the only development at the southern end where the Harbor and Village of Ocracoke are located. There are 12 miles of undisturbed, undeveloped beaches. Pull your car over, climb over the dune, and you will probably be the only person in sight. If you have a four wheel drive vehicle enter the beach at designated ramps and pull right up to the water.

Ocracoke is rich in history, tradition, and culture. The famous pirate, Blackbeard made Ocracoke his home before he was killed in Ocracoke Inlet. Take a step back in time where there are no amusement parks, no movie theaters, one gas station, sand roads, no stop lights, two grocery stores, yet there is still so much to do. This island has some of the finest restaurants, pubs, and shops you will ever find on the Outerbanks.

Ocracoke is a place where you will leave the hectic pace of the city behind and get back in touch with your family and loved ones. Walk the beach for shells, take a swim without the crowds, go bike riding, fishing, visit the wild ponies, or just absorb the stunning sunsets and star studded skies.

This is a magical place, we know, we raised our children on Ocracoke vacations. A popular Ocracoke saying is 'If the world were to end tomorrow, those on Ocracoke wouldn't know for three days.'

Beautiful Dog-Friendly Property

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful few days in this house. It was immaculate, in spite of the fact that they are dog-friendly. We enjoyed the stay. My only recommendation would be to replace window screens as they are torn and we couldn't open windows. Given that we were there in April, it wasn't a big deal, but would be later in the season! Really loved the place.

Great for people watching & family visiting!

  • 5 of 5

We happened upon this rental while looking forward to attending a friend's wedding. We wanted the ability to have room to visit with other family members. This house gave us a wonderful vantage point to people watch, visit with friends and family, and plenty of room for the kids to spread out and explore. The two boys thoroughly enjoy the frog catching! And later frog saving - hiding in the back door hinges! The owners were so friendly and helpful when we were making our booking. One note - the stairs into the house are steep and proved a wee-bit of a challenge for my father-in-law.

Wonderful getaway spot!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a great place to stay! Large, comfortable and well supplied. We had everything we needed for a wonderful stay. The house is perfect! We enjoyed the porches for relaxing. The kitchen was perfect for cooking breakfast and dinner. We fell in love with Howard's Pub and their awesome seafood and relaxing atmosphere. The beach was closed due to the government shutdown, but we parked at the airport and walked in. The weather was perfect and we enjoyed 4 beautiful days on the beach soaking up the sun. Sherry was great to work with. We talked several times and she made us feel very welcomed. Love the family pictures along the walls! The bed and bath upstairs were great! My husband and I really enjoyed our time there and look forward to going back again sometime soon.

Thank you for sharing your home with us! God bless! Nancy and Wayne

Loved Ocracoke!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this property in Ocracoke. It was exactly as described and exactly as we'd hoped. The owners could not have been nicer. They were very helpful and accommodating. We loved the house and really enjoyed our off-season adventure in Ocracoke.
