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.
My wife and I spent a wonderful week in Ocracoke at Sisters. This was our first time at Sisters, and our stay couldn’t have been better. The house was ready for us when we arrived and it more than lived up to the reviews that I had read. We had everything we needed. The kitchen was the best equipped of any vacation house we had ever stayed in, and the king size beds were very comfortable. The internet worked without a hitch. We really enjoyed the views of the sound from the observation deck! We saw some of the most perfect sunsets watched sailboats go by, plus we got to observe a couple of large owls at dusk. The first night we were there, we saw one flying past as we carried our luggage in, so we were looking for them. As for convenience of location, Sisters can’t be beat. We brought our bikes, and it was easy to get to anywhere we wanted to go in town. All in all, we had the best of vacations, relaxing on the beach and enjoying the shops and restaurants in a place where life naturally slows down. We can’t wait to go back and have already begun to talk our children into spending a week with us on Ocracoke next year. Of course, we’ll reserve Sisters for ourselves.
My husband, daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter had a wonderful stay at Sisters on Ocracoke Island. Weather was perfect and we spent every evening on one of the great porches that surround the house with views of the ocean and marsh. The screened-in porch was especially great with a toddler. House was very well kept and nicely stocked with dishes, glassware, towels, etc. Close to shops and restaurants and a quick drive to the wonderful beaches of Cape Hatteras National Seashore.
Just returned from a terrific week at "Sisters". The house is more equipped than our own home! Extremely comfortable with 2 huge "en suite" bathrooms like they say on HGTV and one more for all to use! The kitchen is outfitted with every pan we needed and even the spice rack was loaded! The porches were wonderful and watching sunset from the upper deck was magnificent. We had a tropical storm the first weekend and a perfect beautiful week to follow. The fact that the linens are provided was a godsend for us so we did not have to lug it all from CT. We love Ocracoke and hope to return to "Sisters" again. Don't miss Eduardo's Taco Wagon (the most wonderful family Mexican food and breakfast - the Veggie Omelet! Owner was great to work with and everything was easy. Got my deposit back today, less than a week since we left. Enjoy!
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.
