This upbeat sunlit home has phenomenal marsh and canal views and also views of the Pamlico sound across the street. It has exceptional views for bird watching! The kitchen is well equipped with everything needed and then some. Many guests have commented on the comfortable beds, towels, sheets, and furniture in the guest book, which is VERY important. There is also a flat screen TV and 3 others, XM Radio, stereo, ipod dock, fish cleaning bench, grill, kids disney tapes, adult movie library, books, puzzles, and games! There are mahogany floors downstairs. There is total privacy from any other homes. Porches surround along with a hammock and a screened in porch. Also there is an outside shower. Come on down, kick back, and enjoy the Ocracoke lifestyle. Ocracoke is a wonderful and beautiful Island, still with a pristine beach. You'll fall in love with it the 1st time you come.
Also newly added is a roof top deck with beautiful views of the Pamlico sound!

Loooving this neighborhood. As far as I'm concerned this is the best side of the island. 1st came 50 years ago.
We've long admired "Sisters" online for several years. We're so glad we decided to treat ourselves to this wonderful house for two weeks in December--our favorite time on the island. Excellent kitchen for cooks, comfy living area, great beds in bedrooms that provided privacy for each of us, and the wonderful quiet we craved. We love this neighborhood. Easy walk and bike ride to the sound, Silver Lake and shops. Highly recommend.
“Sisters” cottage in Ocracoke, NC excels in amenities. The house was more than just a place to stay. Two and a half baths and a large kitchen are a plus for a larger family. We had two “cooks” in the kitchen and never got in each other’s way! Every window has a beautiful view: marsh, sound, creek, and tons of birds. Bring your binoculars! The screened porch provides a relaxing reading spot or outdoor place for meals. Multi-level decks extend the activity areas on three sides. The stars are beautiful from the highest deck! In house Wi-Fi helps both computer geeks and gamers and the television has cable. The wooden swing is a must-try, and very soothing. The deck even has a hammock. Town is a short and pleasant walk or bike ride. We felt comfortable and right at home in this beautiful clean cottage! We plan to come back soon.
We had a wonderful vacation in Ocracoke. The house, SISTERS, was beautiful, quiet, comfortable and came equipped with all that you could need to feel at home. It was convenient, just a pleasant walk or a quick bike ride into the heart of town. We will stay their again if we have the opportunity.
We found the house to be clean and in good order. The kitchen is well equipped and there is ample counter space for food preparation and cupboard space and housing for all of the vacation food goodies. The house is located on a quiet street in a very peaceful neighborhood.
The high speed WIFI is an added plus as are the washing machine and dryer. The bed is very comfortable and the linens are provided. The library of books is very nice, we were able to use the reference books to identify some of the shells we collected from the beach. The views from the elevated deck gives you the perspective of the community of Ocracoke. The deck was a great place to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening.
The house's location allows you to walk to the heart of the community and explore the side streets on the way back. Zillie's is a short walk from the house.
The owner takes pride in this property, the decor is very homey and welcoming, this made for hours of enjoyment. The owner answered all of our questions in a prompt and complete fashion. We plan on a return trip in the future.
This was our second year staying at Sister's house and it will not be our last. It has everything you need to have a comfortable visit. We loved the observation deck that was recently added. We highly recommend staying. Hope you enjoy your visit as much as we did.
Have stayed at a number of VRBO properties and have to say Sisters is at the top of my list. Kitchen has everything anyone would need to be a chef, including cookbooks, gadgets, appliances and plenty of room. Living room is spacious with big tv, dvd player, satellite radio, ipod dock station and more. Couches are made for naps. Beds are super, had to ask owner the make so we can purchase the same. Top deck have a killer view! You cannot go wrong with Sisters. We rented a golf cart and enjoyed exploring Ocracoke. Try Pony Island Restaurant for breakfast, Jason's and Smacnallys for lunch. we purchased fresh sea food at the sea food market and cooked in several nights, can't beat fresh from the boat fish.
Many other places to see and visit at Ocracoke--just relax and enjoy.
