"SV21 needs a little love, & ideally the owners (fairly new, I was told) will give it some. It has some charming elements: a really big upstairs with three beds & its own sitting room & TV, a wonderful claw-foot tub in the master bathroom, comfortable beds (we slept very well), & a nice, fairly private backyard with dining table. The yard is fully fenced, which is great for dog owners. It’s always nice to find pet-friendly rentals, so props to the owners for that. The online images are kind of deceptive. The place looks much brighter & roomier in the photos. In person, the main area with living room, dining room, & kitchen is pretty dark, even with blinds drawn up. It feels a bit gloomy, or perhaps cozy if you like that cabin feeling. There were some housekeeping/maintenance issues, like torn screens on front & back doors, & one of the AC ducts to the upstairs was too crimped to function. We communicated these to OIR, so hopefully they will address the concerns. The appliances all worked well, & the kitchen has lots of dishes & utensils. There’s a shower in the bath off the kitchen, but it’s a bit cramped. Part of the floor by the shower has been replaced by a bare board. There were no bath mats, so you may need to bring your own if you want them. The location is handy for getting to Ocracoke Coffee & restaurants on the Back Road, so that’s a plus. We’ve always enjoyed the island, wherever we’ve stayed, & we’ve almost always rented from OIR. They’ve been very responsive, & that’s appreciated. SV21 is the only place in more than a dozen years of visits that wasn’t quite as I expected/hoped, & that’s a very good record."

"We loved the old beach cottage charm! I cannot wait to see how the new owners enhance the beauty and charm of this very well appointed cottage. Perfect for our blended 20 something's and our fur babies. The back yard was amazing and we enjoyed an outdoor movie in comfort."

"We loved staying at Happy Place. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you could need. We loved the knotty pine boards in the house. We liked the old Ocracoke feel of the house and neighborhood. Short walk to everything the island offers. The screened in porch and decking was wonderful to enjoy the breeze and listen to the doves. The fenced in yard was perfect for our small dog. We will definately be staying here again. "

"The island is great! The house definitely needs some work, and due to the dark wood it’s….well, it’s dark inside. I’d love to see it lightened up. Lots of potential there. "

"Great place - I read reviews that won’t great but, it turned out good there was a crock-pot, and coffee maker. All of this was great we were there for the pirate parade and it was fun kids had a great time. Not super fancy but perfect for our little family. Thank you for a great stay."
