We stayed on Ocracoke once and really liked it. It was much cheaper too. But the place we stayed converted over to condo's that were not for rent. It's just a longer drive down there plus a nice ferry ride that is free. Beaches are great! You have a long stretch of it, usually, to yourself. Plus they are really beautiful. We have taken to Pirate ship tour around the island. It's on a sailboat, schnooner(?) and you sail around the areas that Blackbeard once haunted. The man that owns the ship has done this for years and is at Ocracoke during the tourist season only. He said he sails back to Florida in October.
