What a view!
What a neat house, and what a great location and view! Yes, it needs a little love, but it has so much charm and character...some of which comes from it being an older "island house." It was very clean, and a tight little house, even with some of the gusty winds we experienced. Neat kitchen...older fridge, but the stove was fairly new, and it had a great ice machine! And the windows all across the front with the harbor view, and Howard's Street behind it just made it even better. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
Good For Basics
Creekside needs lots of work. Master bathroom floor is extremely soft and commode leans. Floor is extremely wavy and living room tv is pretty bad. Furniture is worn and not terribly comfortable. On the plus side, it has a great location and the appliances and hvac works fine. The beds are comfortable and it is pet friendly. Probably would not stay there again but it’s meets all basic requirements.

When we arrived the appearance of the exterior gave us cause for concern. The front gate to the house and the shared dock were both broken broken and there was no signage on dock gate. So there were lots of "visitors" on the dock. The "outbuilding" gives the property a rundown appearance. We were pleased with the interior. Loved the kitchen's layout. Upstairs bedroom was pretty muggy, but bearable with an old box fan. Kids enjoyed the "widow's walk". Enjoyed not having to travel so far to go fishing; staying on Silver Lake was a plus. Thanks for responding quickly to our questions about a/c.

Great place to take a break. I worked one, rested one all week long

We had a wonderful time on the island. Creekside had a few things that we had to have fixed, replaced, cleaned, but OIR attended to them immediately. The location of this house is key. We walked everywhere in the Down Creek village. Crossed the street for a drink at the Jolly Roger everyday. Being on the opposite side of the island for the beach was no issue since we had a SUV to pull right up onto the beach. You have to drive to the beach from anywhere on the island anyway and it only takes minutes. We rented a boat for the week, so the fact that this house had it's own dock made boating, fishing, crabbing very convenient. We were very happy with this house. Great experience. Thank you Creekside and thank you OIR.

We loved the house! Old Okracoke charm among the live oaks and red cedar in one of the last residencies not turned into commercial property on the harbor. My dad first brought us to Okracoke in the late 60's to camp and I've come back to the Outer Banks dozens of times since to camp or rent. This was our first time renting a house on Okracoke. The kids loved being able to walk out to get something to eat, I loved not having to get in the car when we needed more milk. I don't know how I missed it all these years, but the North Carolina Coastal Land Trust nature trail out to Springers Point was the highlight. Other highlights, other then the incredible surf on the island (east coast, west coast - it is the best!) included bird watching with the NPS ranger; the NPS junior ranger program; meeting the Banker ponies; watching squalls roll into the harbor from our porch; playing guitar on the upper deck and watching my youngest fall in love with the ocean like my dad watched his youngest. Thanks!
