I cannot say enough about this visit with OI Realty and this house! Both were awesome! Starting with OI Realty, as always, the staff was easy to work with and even managed to get us into the house early, which we greatly appreciated. The house exudes old Ocracoke charm. We have been coming to OINC for 30+ years and each time we seek out the older homes with character and history. I could almost hear the walls talking in this house! The home was clean, conveniently located (even on the July 4th parade route) to everything, super well stocked with anything we could have possibly needed! Lots of outdoor space for hanging out in the mornings with coffee and night with wine, listening to God’s smallest creatures!! The owners thought of everything and more! What we did not bring, we were able to rent from Beach Outfitters, and found everything already delivered upon our arrival! We appreciate the time spent at La Vie En Rose and on this rare and beautiful island! Already planning our next visit!

Beware of Upstairs Bedroom Layout
My family and I have traveled to Ocracoke for 35+ years. This was the first year we had to rent a house as our family has outgrown our personal house. We also had dogs, so that made it especially tricky finding the right place. While this place was the right size, we were disappointed to find out that two of the bedrooms were only accessible via a spiral staircase when someone was occupying the upstairs king bedroom...this wasn't mentioned in the website description. We have two small children and it was very dangerous for them to have to go up and down them, let alone an adult. One other problem was that there was no bathroom upstairs for those two bedrooms, so if you need to use the bathroom in the middle of the night you have to go up and down that staircase. Bathrooms were pretty small and outdated. The layout of the entire house was very cut up. House had cobwebs and some window screens so dirty you couldn't see through them. Also, the first day in the house we noticed that our feet were black from walking around barefoot inside the house. Didn't seem like the floors were cleaned well when we got there. Lastly, the internet was really bad. If we tried to watch TV in the living room and master bedroom, the internet would slow down causing both TV's to buffer. The bedrooms over the kitchen basically had no usable wifi service. Best thing about the entire house was the screened in porch off the kitchen where we could eat outside. Needless to say, it served the purpose for us this year, but we won't rent it again in the future.

Fantastic home away from home. Our family of 8 loved all of the nooks and crannies that allowed everyone their own down time. Kitchen had everything we wanted for cooking our choices from the fish market. The back screened porch is AMAZING- I want one at home! Perfect location for the kids to bike around on their own. Front porch secluded and shaded for sitting and enjoying the time together. A bonus was the hot water even after three kids had showered upon returning from the beach!!! Highly recommend this beautiful island home to those looking to get away in Ocracoke. 15 minute walk to the ferry dock for sunsets. Even shorter walk to Springers Point for another sunset view. Plus, its close to the Taqueria 503 Suazos for breakfast, lunch, or dinner (kid and adult favorite).

Great house! Love the charm of island home with modern conveniences and well stocked kitchen. My family and I had a wonderful time. We went out on our boat and out to the beach, biked, shopped, had great food. So happy that Ocracoke still has real village feeling and no franchises! Its a special place and this house is our favorite place we have stayed
