About John Ho

Just like everyone that lives in the hurry and got to get things done world, we need a place that is quiet and relaxing. So, my wife and I decided to give the OBX a go. We fell for the sand, surf, wind, ... you can say 'everything about the OBX'.

It took us years of saving, work, and dreams. but we finally did it, we now have a piece of the obx. And we want to share the joy.

John Ho purchased this studio in 2012

What makes this studio unique

This cottage is really two homes, so the studio apartment is very peaceful and private. Fully tiled bathroom.

Cozy, quiet, convenient and affordable

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent the week of Columbus Day at e=msea2. It is very close to the ocean with a view of sound.

Some businesses were closed or on reduced hours for the season, but we still had plenty of options for things to do and places to eat. We were fortunate to have excellent weather for the second week of October.

Spent one day on Ocracoke; visited "Shelly Island" another; took several long walks along the beach. Beach near the house was not at all crowded. We did have some company (mostly surf fishers) at Shelly Island and Cape Hatteras. The appliances are new or nearly new. The recently remodeled bathroom is very nicely done. Satellite TV & WIFI worked great. The unit we stayed in had the feel of a nice hotel efficiency and though there are neighbor houses close by it still felt quite private. Looking at when we can schedule another visit!

Great beach getaway for 2 + dog

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary with 2 weeks at the beach. We needed a place that accepted dogs, and this place fit our needs perfectly- close to the beach, back yard to play fetch, and we'll-stocked kitchen so we could cook. The hot tub was an added bonus!

A Few Issues

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed "MSea2," a cottage surrounded by more than a few trees teeming with birds, enjoined by a large deck to a second bigger unit in front. Thankfully the front unit was not occupied. Mr. Ho was friendly and accommodating, but neglected to advise us that there would be no professional cleaning.

A relatively recent renovation with a beautiful bathroom. The kitchen had everything we needed with all the appliances, wifi, TV and AC working perfectly with new windows and blinds and very secure. It was close enough to the ocean with a nice view of the Sound from the porch (and the main road), but without any deck chairs to enjoy it. A couple of heavy duty wood chairs like most of the other rentals have would have been sterling. The mattress was too hard. The grill did not appear to be working and had not been cleaned in many moons. Although Mr. Ho claimed he had a recycling account and his containers had been "lost in a storm," after asking officials we were told he was not in the system.

As last minute renters at a disadvantage (a couple from Arizona with a small dog and no idea what fair market value was), he was reasonable and easy to do business with, for which we were grateful. Oddly, based on the opinion of local brokers, everything was close to booked up when we started looking in late June, yet there seemed to be numerous empty rental units around when we were there in July.

Mr. Ho appears to be a one-man operation living in northern Virginia, so we understand the difficulties he is having renting a cottage as an absentee landlord. Still, he needs to untangle a few kinks in his line. Hatteras is without peer.

Grandfather Great Spirit,

Fill us with the Light.

Give us the strength to understand,

and the eyes to see.

Teach us to walk the soft Earth

as relatives to all that live.

Beautiful Studio Apartment close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week long stay at this great studio apartment. It was a nice way to spend our anniversary and see the gorgeous sights of the Outer Banks. We enjoyed going to the beach and exploring along the National Seashore.
