Perfect for families
"My family and I really enjoyed staying at swinkels. House was clean, and was just as described. Kitchen is well stocked, we had everything we needed. Frisco is an amazing little town far away from the touristy areas of the OBX. Perfect for hanging at the beach and doing a whole lot of relaxing. It's a quick walk to the beach, even with small children, and a dog! Thank you Dennis for sharing your home with us. My girlfriend and I got engaged right there on the sand."

"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!"

"Our latest stay in the Outer Banks was great and the Turtle Shell made the stay. The location of the house is second to none. The Turtle Shell is just minutes from multiple grocery stores, restaurants and all of the shopping you need. The access to the beach is amazing. Just a short walk and your toes are in the sand. Also the beach access has a road that runs right into the sand. This made it very easy to transport chairs, umbrellas and other beach supplies so you don't have to carry them if you don't want to. The house itself was spectacular. It was fully furnished and had everything you would find in your own home. The bedrooms were comfortable and the living room spacious. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything you need to cook a full meal. The porch was the best part, the house is quiet so in the evenings the upstairs porch is the place to be. The owners were so easy to deal with. They were prompt responding when we had questions and were extremely easy to communicate with. I would recommend the Turtle Shell to anyone who wants a great house in a great location. i will definitely stay at the Turtle Shell again!"
