Better Days is our favorite Ocracoke rental. The convenience of having Ocracoke Coffee, Slushy Stand, and great shops within a few steps from our door is really nice. Easy access to the beach highway only adds to the great location.

Nice home overall for the price, Great location. Beautiful island and beautiful weather! King bed very comfortable. Steps to second floor tricky. Some issues we reported to Realty company: Dishwasher not bolted into counter and fell out of place; Mattress cover on King bed obviously soiled - had to wash; No closet access in King bedroom; No outside hose; Fish cleaning area inoperable.

Better Days was a wonderful and very comfortable home. The fenced in large back yard was perfect for our golden retriever traveling companion. The kitchen is well stocked with all the utensils and pots/pans needed for cooking. Loved the gas stove and the washer and dryer were very nice. Back right flood lights need to be replaced but the left side worked perfectly. The front screened porch with ceiling fans is where we spent quite a few lazy hours after morning beach or exploring time. The beds are very comfy and having linens provided is most welcome and convenient after a long travel day. We had such a nice stay and hope to be back soon.

Wonderful home with everything you could ask for. Thank you to the owners for providing the extras to make us comfortable. Everything was upscale, from beds and furniture to decor and a well stocked kitchen. This truly felt like a home, not a rental... and only 2 doors away from Ocracoke Coffee! See you in the Spring!

wonderful week on Ocracoke. This is our 3rd year in Better days. we have been coming to the outer Banks for over 35 years, mainly Hatteras Island. Ocracoke is by far the best. Better days is the best house we have ever stayed in. The amenities, the location and fenced yard and screened porch were all great. Thanks to the Gaskill's for a great home, and letting us stay there.

Better Days is a wonderful Ocracoke style house to stay at during our vacation. This is our third year here, and we look forward to our stay next year. Fenced yard, grill, backyard patio and screened front porch makes it relaxing, secluded and peaceful. Thank you and have a great year.

It was a very nice house. We have rented houses on the island for decades and this was by far the nicest one we have stayed in. Close to everything, very clean, everything worked and a fabulous kitchen. We bought seafood and cooked most nights. It was the perfect base of operations for the whole extended family - some spent more time in town and others on the beach - but we all met up later in the day for good food and conversation. We hope to rent this location again.
