We have stayed at the Sisters house for one week in the spring for the past three years. Wonderful weather in the 70's, a beautiful view from all the decks, a great screened in porch, and a perfect location. We loved how close it was to walk to downtown and to Zillie's. The furniture in the house is high quality and we spent many enjoyable evenings eating dinner out on the screened in porch and watching the wildlife. Sunset was viewed from the top deck as well as some star gazing. My husband and I brought my parents and our baby and toddler with us this most recent time and we had plenty of space for everyone. We loved all of the windows on the first floor to get a good breeze and to really feel like you are bringing the outdoors inside - without the bugs! Good kitchen with new oven and plenty of pots and pans. Dishes were new this year - Riggsie does a great job of updating and replacing items in her rental. King beds are comfortable and my daughter loved picking out which twin bed to sleep in upstairs. She also enjoyed the Disney movies on slow mornings.

I would heartily recommend this rental house and talk it up to all our neighbors and friends. Ocracoke is amazing and this house is a large part of what has made our yearly visits so very enjoyable.

Wonderful house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

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.

Beautiful Home on a Charming Island

  • 5 of 5

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.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

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!

Delightful Stay

  • 5 of 5

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.

“Fantastic Views, Quiet, Restful!”

  • 5 of 5

“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.
