Great old home! Perfect family get away
I have been vacationing in Ocracoke since I was a small child and this home brings back all the wonderful feelings of the easy ways of Ocracoke and Outer Banks. So much change to the island, but this house remained solid since 1933. It was great to share that with my ten years old and teach him not to fear hurricanes. Time at Ocracoke should have simple expectations. The reviews below helped me pack. I recommend renting a grill and bikes. And always - bring bug spray to the Island. Taking a morning trip to the North end is worth getting a feeling for the Island. An early morning walk to the end of the Lighthouse street is a must. "
