About Anne Koebley

I vacationed on the Outer Banks as a child and also as the young married wife of a dental student. Ocracoke still has the old feel of what going to the beach is all about: being with family, soaking in the sun, making sand castles, and just enjoying life in the moment.

Anne Koebley purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Anne Koebley chose Outer Banks

My husband and I fell in love with the relaxed village community that exists on Ocracoke and our wonderful house that brings a feeling of closeness to us when we are there.

What makes this cottage unique

Enjoy your morning coffee on the screened-in porch as you experience the closeness of life on a canal. On the water you see birds and fishermen passing in their boats, and hear the sounds of the natural wildlife. Mallard families explore the waters as well. Children young and old love to fish or catch crabs in the canal.

What Obx is suppose to be like

  • 5 of 5

House was well taken care of and has the charm of what the Obx was like when you came to the beach years ago. Thanks for preserving a peace of history.

Wonderful, quaint get away!

  • 5 of 5

My group of 4 rented this cottage for a wedding weekend and it was perfect! We so enjoyed drinking coffee on the screened in porch and being right on a canal was very convenient. Would 100% rent this cottage again. The owners were very responsive and friendly as well.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family of four had a wonderful week staying in this beautifully maintained cottage! The cottage itself is lovingly decorated with antiques that brought back wonderful memories from my childhood, and I immediately felt comfortable there. In addition, the screened-in outdoor deck was perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine in the evening or reading and catching a quick nap in the afternoon. My family made many wonderful memories here and I would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone! The owner, Anne, was a pleasure to work with as well! One of our best best vacations yet!
