Ocracoke before Dorian
The property is nice and situated close to everything within walking distance. The wraparound porch is nice and looks as though it had some work done on it recently. The bed is very small if you were longer than 5 foot eight you won’t fit your feet will hang off the end And your ankles and Achilles will end up on the hard end plate of the bed.. +2 grown adults sleeping on that bed is almost impossible. It’s a very small double which is very uncomfortable to try to sleep in. If you plan on cooking the kitchen is very sparsely provided with a few pots and pans and cutlery which drastically need sharpening. You should bring some of your own pots and pans and some sharp knives. If you’re like us you want to come home and relax after a day on the beach or hard travel. I would highly recommend replacing the couch as it’s the only real place to lounge and it’s like sitting on a piece of granite with a few pads on it. No real chairs or other areas to sit except kitchen chairs. The shower is very nice and the location is close to everything. I would return if they would replace the bed and the couch. Thank you.
Great location, nice porch, a little dusty inside but overall as expected.
Not what you'd expect.
First of all the address given to the property was wrong and we only found the house by the pictures. There was no check in information given. We entered the unlocked house to find keys on the kitchen table. We ran into the owner shortly after arriving. He seemed nice. The house was in desperate need of a thorough cleaning. There was mold and mildew in the shower which we cleaned ourselves and there were spider webs and dog hair just about everywhere. The furniture looked like it was picked up at a yard sale and was very uncomfortable. The bed was the size described which we were expecting but the wooden slats that hold up the box springs and mattress were too short and kept falling. This was very upsetting to us as we had brought our fur babies and they sometimes like to go under the bed. I eventually put some screws in the slats to fix that problem as well. There was no outside water hose outlet which was a problem for us because we needed to clean our boat motor when we were done fishing. There was piping on the outside of the house for this but never installed. I picked up some parts from the local hardware store to make it so I could use my water hose to flush out my boat motor. The lighting on the porch was terrible. Only one small light for such a large area which made it useless after dark. The lighting in the house was not much better. The two worst parts of the trip was the owner and the air conditioning. We were staying for 2 weeks and the air conditioning gave out on Saturday midway through our stay. The owner did have another unit that he installed but it didn't work very well and by Monday night it had stopped all together. The owner also would stop by unannounced quite a bit. He asked us 2 times while we were there to leave the property with all of our belongings inside unlocked so that the property, which is for sale, could be shown. The fist time was at 9:30 in the morning and the second time was a 11 am. Which completely ruined the day for fishing or going to the beach because we had dogs that we kept in their kennels during the day that we had to leave with so the property could be shown. After the A/C went out Monday night and the owner asking us again to leave so he could sell the property we left early. We both have asthma and cannot be in such a hot house with no A/C for a very long time. He told us that the A/C wouldn't be repaired until Wednesday. We've asked for a partial refund but haven't heard back from the owner.
Had a wonderful time!
It was pretty nice
Nice little spot-
We enjoyed this great little cabin conveniently located in Ocracoke! It was close to everything! Loved relaxing on the porch after spending the day at the beach. The neighbor’s cat came to visit us a few times..... so friendly and cute! Thanks, Tom!
