About this Property

  • Cottage

Where nostalgia meets modern comfort, with impressive water vistas, in a peaceful location.

Cozy, comfortable bungalow curated with local art, with tidbits of vintage and new, using colors reflecting the sun, sand and sea. With three bedrooms, two baths, living room and dining area in the kitchen, this home is ideal for a modest family, or two couples. Located in the live oaks, in a peaceful part of the island, our bungalow provides privacy, relaxation and serenity.

But the real attraction is the cavernous 480’ square foot screened porch, and upper viewing deck, with the most spectacular, unparalleled view of Pamlico Sound.

For ions, doctors have prescribed going to the sea for its healing, curative properties. In the late 60’s/early 70’s, my Grandfather – a physician- felt the call of the ocean, and decided that Ocracoke was the place for him, and our family. He and my Grandmother wanted a modest place near the water, where they could immediately drop their things and get outside: on the porch, to the beach, or in the boat. They didn’t want to waste time with anything fussy. For our family, this island getaway was the best medicine from the busy, hectic-ness of the city. Our family legacy is woven into every corner of the bungalow, each meal in the kitchen, game nighttime at the coffee table, coffee or wine on this porch – each memory echoes through time. It is now my turn to share it with you. Lovingly and meticulously refreshed and refreshed, it is ready for you and your family to savor and begin a new chapter for the bungalow. When you stay at “Doctors Orders”, you are not just booking a bungalow- you are becoming part of a story that started long ago.

Here’s to your family creating new memories in the home that our family has cherished for generations.

How to find the best Ocracoke rental home experience:

Getting the best rental home value:

  • Book your rental as early as possible. Rental schedules generally open a year in advance (or in September just after Summertime ends). Many families book their Summer vacation rentals during Christmas and Thanksgiving gatherings. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • To find the best rental home within your budget, we strongly suggest booking in Spring or Fall. You'll enjoy lower rates, better selection, warm weather and the absence of giant crowds at Ocracoke restaurants, tours, and activities. Many vacationers use this method to find larger homes within budget, or to book an oceanfront vacation rental that would otherwise be unavailable or unaffordable during the Summer months.
  • Property management companies sometimes offer discounts or promotional rates for veterans. Check with your host or property manager to see if discounts are available for your family before you book.
  • Property managers often offer customers an option to purchase trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which normally will cost you 1% - 5% of the base booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for missed time as a result of personal medical-related emergencies or weather, as well as evacuation costs, such as an unanticipated hotel or additional gas expenses. Trip insurance can be a a welcome relief if the unforeseen happens. Ask the property owner for details.
  • Look for your local visitors guide upon arrival. If your rental home doesn't have one, you can find them at local shops and visitor centers. In addition to great information, travel guides have coupons for local shops and restaurants.

How to select the best vacation home:

  • Start by selecting the best vacation week and a spending budget.
  • Decide how many beds and the configuration your family requires. Doctor's Orders\/Nostalgic Family Cottage with Views of Pamlico Sound and Sunsets has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our Ocracoke rentals search.
  • Precise descriptions of bedrooms and bed types is regularly available on booking pages. If they are not listed, contact the property manager before you reserve the rental. Note that most listings specify the maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes pull-out couches and bunk beds. You'll need to work out what is suitable for your group.
  • Do your family pets travel with you? Although a number of vacation homes allow pets or animals, guidelines and costs vary per property. Type of pet, size and breeds may be limited. Remember to ask the property manager before booking, and study your agreement! Additional pet fees or may be applied to your invoice.
  • Visiting for a single event or attraction? Try a map search to find nearby rentals.
  • Suitable accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for persons with disabilities. Confirm all required amenities are available before reserving a rental.

More tips for your stay:

  • Review arrival and departure procedures before traveling. Take a printed copy, and save the instructions to your phone.
  • Ask questions. You may want instructions for a fireplace, intercom or washer/dryer. Contact your host. They are there to help! A brief call can prevent quite a few problems.
  • Protect the property owner (and your things!) by locking the property while you are out, just like you would at home.
  • During arrival, note any damages to the rental property and immediately alert the host. Record all coorespondence.
  • Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like disagreeable vacationers bothering your peaceful neighborhood. Use the golden rule for common sense. If they like you, locals might even recommend great restaurants and attractions you would've never otherwise known about!
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local! Locals can usually help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to find the fresh catch of the day, have a great night out, or the best spots for crabbing?
  • Re-check every room of the vacation property to confirm that you've packed everything on check-out day. Re-check closets, dressers, garages, and bathrooms for hidden treasure. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Record a video to document the condition of the property.
  • Did your group have a fantastic stay? Most rental home management companies make it easy for customers to provide reviews. If your rental and/or host was great, they will likely appreciate your kind words. If anything was imperfect and they failed to address it within reason, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make a note as part of your review.
