Overview

About the property

Studio, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

This building was constructed in l993 and used for 15 years as a working art studio. It is set back off the road, amidst giant live oak and cedar trees, and sits alongside my home, one of the islands designated historic houses. The two buildings are joined by an open breezeway behind the main gate, but when guests are in residence in the studio, we both have separate entrances on opposite sides of the property. The Studio provides all the comforts of home in a private, quiet and tree shaded setting, with lots of attention to detail. I have tried to make the Studio somewhere I would want to stay, well cared for with lots of personality.

You enter through a totally enclosed courtyard space complete with hot/cold out door shower and grill. There are outdoor chairs for lounging and a dining table for mealtime. The courtyard is also perfect for your furry traveling companion as it is totally closed in, allowing your pet a bit of leash free time without worry. Your parking is right outside the gate, so getting in and out is a breeze. Inside, the studio is colorful, unique and furnished for your complete comfort with two antique double beds, sofa, chair, flat screen TV, free NETFLIX stream, IPod dock, DVD player, fully equipped kitchen and bath with tub and shower. Up the captains ladder is a sleeping loft featuring a second double bed. Both beds are made with 600 thread count sheets, down comforters and pillows. All towels are provided except beach towels.

This is the perfect romantic and private getaway for two. The Studio is located within walking distance of the Coffee Company, Zillie's, the harbor front and all downtown shops and restaurants. Books, board games and limited video library are included.

About Debbie Wells

I accidently wandered onto Ocracoke more than 40 years ago and have been here ever since. A chef and artist by trade, the island has been an immensely satisfying place to live and work. I love to start my day with a swim and see where it goes from there. The studio is adjacent to my house and I love taking special care of this unique vacation rental.

Debbie Wells purchased this studio in 1980

Guestbook comments from the owner

Nice enough except for loft ladder

  • 4 of 5

A very artfully decorated if not entirely functional great room. The permanently-mounted ladder to the upstairs loft intrudes on the limited space. There it stands as you come in the door and also between the bed and the bathroom. Not sure I would recommend that upstairs bed for young children as the ladder is quite steep. The greatest asset of this property is the large, beautifully decorated, completely enclosed patio, a great place to spend with your dog or kids. Though you are next door to the owners privacy is assured.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this lovely studio and had a wonderful time. The space is private and quiet even though our road was lively with people biking and walking their dogs. It was very clean, efficient, and restful. The fenced patio and yard are wonderful and the hose was easy to use for beach wash-offs. Our dogs enjoyed the pet friendly studio and town and beaches. The owner is very helpful with good tips of where dogs are welcomed and what restaurants she loves. We enjoyed every minute of our stay in this artist's studio.

Wonderful Property, Great Indoor and Outdoor areas, Would Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

The owner had sent a message the morning of our arrival welcoming us, when I replied to let her know it might be dark when we arrived she turned on the lights for us! Now that is service. Everything was as she describes on the site about the property. The property is centrally located and we walked to everything. A great stay, only wish we could have stayed longer. Thanks for allowing us to stay!

Wonderful, unique, peaceful and artsy.

  • 5 of 5

Ocracoke we discovered is the most beautiful of the southern Outer Banks. This lovely unique studio adds to the enjoyment. Within walking distance to a quirky but fun coffee shop where you can pet Lincoln, the small black fuzzy assistant to the proprietor. The beaches are stunning with huge dunes and colorful shells. Horses are within view as they are fenced to protect them from the roads. Debbie the owner will tell you where to access the beautiful areas.
