We took our first trip to Ocracoke Island between Christmas-New Year’s and rented a home from Ocracoke Island Realty (OIR). Everything about our stay was PERFECT! The island, the weather, the comfortable home, the interactions with OIR staff, the food….I could go on and on! We were kept informed as needed throughout our stay via emails from OIR. We will be back in June with another family…and renting from OIR again of course! K. Williams – January 2022

Ocracoke is the best place to get away from the world, the beaches and nature trails are awesome, and the village has enough amenities to make for a comfortable stay despite being so isolated. OIR was great answering any questions, and despite visiting over a holiday break during the off season, we still got everything we needed. L Edwards – January 2022

Wanted to let you know that you did it again! We all had a wonderful week in a beautiful house on a gorgeous island surrounded by the nicest community in the world. Thank you for having us.  N. Parsons – August 2021 

We have been renting from OIR since they came to Ocracoke Island many moons ago. They just seem to be getting better and better, very Covid friendly check in process to include your door code sent to you when your house is ready. Staff have always been helpful with any issues. Rental process is simple and staff are helpful in answering questions about the houses or helping you find the right house. They have a great selection of properties to choose from to rent to suit any need. I would have no hesitation to recommend them to anyone!  L Walker – August 2021

Ocracoke Island Realty leads the way when it comes to guest service and efficiency. From planning our trip, arriving at our space, and checking out, each step of the way was a seamless experience. Lastly, a big thanks to Jen from the office who went above and beyond to offer some local insights of some must do’s and also help us plan for our trip next year! Thank you!!!  Brad – June 2021

Great friendly folks!!! They can help you find your place to stay on your visit.  Chris – December 2020

Had a great time here staying in the same house my father in law used to stay with his brothers. Great location just across from beach access 72. Micheal – October 2020

Loved this house…everything we needed with lots of space. Everything we needed was there. We brought a lot of food and the kitchen had all the utensils and cooking pans.” We needed. OIR communication was excellent and helped make our family gathering a big success.  Blue Skies. Thank you!  Bob – September 2020

We used Ocracoke Island Realty to find our vacation rental Cappy’s cottage two weeks ago and will go through them again next time. They were extremely thorough, responsive, property was in great condition, clean and was as advertised plus they went above and beyond! Check them out and let them be your go to you will not be disappointed! Cindy – July 2020

Our family vacation was a dream. Our rental, Out of the Blue, was spectacular-spotless, roomy and in one of the best locations on the island. Ocracoke Island Realty made everything so easy. We had absolutely no problems. My family was amazed at the house and the amenities provided were outstanding. We had so much fun. –  July 2019

Forty-seven years of trips to this beautiful island…no place like it on earth. And we’ve used OIR ever since their founding. Always a great experience – friendly, helpful, quick to respond to any needs – top notch. As for this visit, Hidden Jewel is aptly named. A lovely home tucked away on Howard Street, but yet right in the thick of things. A great layout for two couples or small family and grandparents. And the rooftop deck offers an unparalleled view of the lighthouse and harbor. I spent every morning and evening up there. Another great trip in the books. Thank you OIR! – October 2018 


From the initial reservation to our arrival on Ocracoke Island, our rental agency, Ocracoke Island Realty, met all expectations and more of what a rental agency is all about. Prior to our arrival they kept us informed as to all events (weather related and town activities) and made our check in completely seamless. Once we checked into “Solitude”, our family was very pleased with location of the residence, the cleanliness, with the house having virtually everything we needed to make our stay exciting and comfortable. At the time of departure, a simple text message that we had “checked out” of the unit was all that was needed. No lines no hassle. I know there are other rental companies on the island, but when visiting again or making plans for our vacation, I will choose Ocracoke Island Realty as our rental agency. Thank you for a wonderful stay.  – October 2018

We had a wonderful week, and our French Bulldog enjoyed her first trip to Ocracoke! Great house…has everything you need. – June 2018

We have stayed in the Outer Banks numerous times in the past, but this was our first time staying in Ocracoke, and it did not disappoint. The house (Seaduction) was wonderful, very clean and well maintained. We loved the pool, hot tub, screened in porches and outside shower. Ocracoke has so much to offer, and has definitely become our favorite new vacation location. Can’t wait to return! – June 2018

What an exceptional staff!  It seems as if they go above and beyond to find the perfect place for our vacations.  Friendly, knowledgeable, will find out what you need to know.  I always use OIR for my rental needs! – May 2018

Thank you for sharing your home with us. We had a fabulous week and found everything we needed in the house. We spent many mornings/evenings on the deck enjoying the breeze. Our border collie, Kate, also loved watching the world go by from the deck after her strolls on the beach. Ocracoke is a special place for us and we can’t wait to come back. – May 2018

We loved our time at the cottage. It was perfect for me, my husband, our five-year-old son, and our dog. The kitchen was stocked with the necessary pots, pans, dishes, and utensils, and we loved the ambiance of the house. We spent every morning and evening on the screened porch, and the location of the house was perfect—close to the village and Springer’s Point, but also quiet and peaceful at night. We would love to stay here again! – May 2018

Very, very nice experience. No issues whatsoever with check-in or check-out. The house was clean and ready for us to use, which was nice after a 12-hour drive. Outstanding service in all aspects. We’ll see you again in July! Can’t wait! – March 2018

We had a wonderful time staying at Changes in Attitude! The house has everything we could have needed. The owner was very gracious and accommodating. We would recommend this house to anyone and can’t wait to return next year! – March 2018

Pocket Change was perfect for our vacation! We had everything we needed and felt at home immediately. The kitchen is well- stocked. The beds were very comfortable. The entire home was modern and clean. A screened porch extends living area significantly and having an extra TV on the porch was wonderful on the mild fall nights when we stayed. We’ve rented many times on OBX and this is our favorite of all. – October 2017

We spent our 25th wedding Anniversary here and had a fabulous time!!! The accommodations were comfortable and had everything we needed. The views were breathtaking!!! The realty agency was the best! We got in early and they gave us a lovely bottle of wine. We will definitely be back!!!! – September 2017

We have been using Ocracoke Island Realty, for 25 yrs. or more. We have been coming to Ocracoke since our daughter was 2 yrs. old, and while we were there this yr. our daughter turned 30 yrs. old. Never had any issues with the realty, very friendly and always willing to help out if there any problems. We love Ocracoke and Ocracoke Island Realty. – September 2017

Everyone at Ocracoke Island Realty is so helpful and friendly! We have been visiting the island for over 12 years and always look forward to their hospitality whenever we stay for more than a few days. We always arrive early and inform them we are on the island. We appreciate how they prioritize getting our rental ready. We look forward to renting from Ocracoke Island Realty again and again!! – August 2017

They do whatever it takes in making sure EVERYTHING about your reservation and stay is to your expectations. The staff is so friendly, helpful, and go above and beyond. We HIGHLY recommend Ocracoke Realty for your vacation rentals. – June 2017

We had a wonderful time here. This is our 4the time coming to the Island and will keep coming back. I love coming in the spring before it gets too crowded and having the beach to ourselves. The house was great and the beds and couch were comfy. Hate having to leave. – April 2017

I really enjoy staying in Serendipity. It’s small and has a lot of personality. I enjoy coming back every year. – March 2017

Thank you so very much for finding and sending me a watch that I left behind on a recent visit.  You and your staff went beyond the call of duty to find and send the watch to me. I have been using your services for at least 10 years and your standard of excellence for service is the reason why.  Thank you.  – January 2017

We love this cottage and the entire island experience. We will be back. Thank you to the staff you are all great. – January 2017

Great vacation and Ocracoke never fails! OIR is the best and we all had a wonderful visit! Oyster festival was awesome! – December 2016

As has always been my experience, the staff at Ocracoke Island Realty were invariably accommodating, courteous and helpful. The house is within fairly easy walking distance to the shops and restaurants in the village. All in all the house is as close to perfection as you could find for an Ocracoke get away. – December 2016

Ocracoke is our favorite vacation destination, and we look forward to vacationing there each year! – November 2016

My husband and I spent a week on Ocracoke Island for the harbor ambiance and relaxation and got just what we wanted. We always choose destinations that combine nature and history, so this was perfect. We’ve day-tripped there before and knew a week-long stay would afford us time to explore every nook and cranny of Ocracoke Island while still being able to relax and stick to our daily walking routine. And still, we didn’t get to everything! – September 2016   

Just wanted to say thanks to Ocracoke Island Realty – they were absolutely awesome to work with – Island Daze was an incredible house to stay in – and as a result, we had a vacation of a lifetime! –  September 2016

The check-in process was smooth as silk and the house was quite clean and comfortable. Doreen was indispensable when it came to making a choice of cottage for next year. I chose the right place for us and called at 9 am on Tuesday. Voila! It was available and I snapped it up for next year. Seriously, I tell all my friends to use Ocracoke Realty because I have always had a positive experience renting from you!! Thanks for a great experience, again, and I’ll see you next July! – August 2016

Great time with family and friends. We have been coming to Ocracoke as a family for over 18 years. Been using Ocracoke Island Realty every year since 2009. You have always been very friendly and helpful – July 2016      

We had a wonderful time on the island. It was by far, the BEST vacation my family has ever had. Ocracoke Island Realty was wonderful to answer questions regarding the island prior to our arrival. They were there through our stay if we had any questions or concerns. My kids did not want to come home! Thanks, Ocracoke Island!  – July 2016
