Why Gail Bostic chose Southport

i chose this property because it was the perfect spot. One block away from most everything. I can sit on the front porch and listen to entertainment happening in Franklin Square Park. I am in walking distance to about anywhere i want to go. It is off the main street so it has the privacy I want if i chose. It is just a perfect location.

What makes this house unique

i bought the house completely remodeled so all I had to do was add all the fun stuff to the house. I liked the fact the master bedroom was downstairs and 2 other bedrooms were upstairs. I loved the location, the size of the house was perfect and the circular drive with the beautiful oak tree in the center just capped it all off.

An enchanting, beautifuly appointed cottage with not detail overlooked.

  • 5 of 5

Talk about better than expected, Sis's Cottage is a dream.

From the ocean-inspired decor to the premium bedding and well-appointed kitchen, this enchanting cottage is just everything. Seriously.

It was a hot and humid afternoon when I parked my car in the generous space under the gorgeous oak tree, I walked into the cottage to the coolly air-conditioned heaven of this home. I'm thrilled to have discovered this gem.

Walk-to-town location; I never drove my car once parked. The magic of walking home after sunset and listening to the wind whip through the old oak trees that adorn these streets is just magic. Peaceful and quiet, the location of the cottage cannot be beaten. My favorite restaurant, Provisions Company seafood, was my go-to for dinner--the blackened yellow tuna open-faced sandwich with a side of homemade blue cheese dressing (ask for it) is divine! I'm a photojournalist and the beauty of Southport is a photographers dream come true, as are the awesome residents whom you will meet. I traveled by myself and never felt lonely. That says a lot for the Southern Southport hospitality. I will most definitely be back and look forward to many more stays at Sis's Cottage.

Thank you, Colleen Callahan

Owner's Response: Colleen This is an awesome review of my property. Thank you so much for the kind words. I am so glad you found Sis's Cottage to be the place you will want to come back to you. Southport by itself is an awesome place and everyone has such a wonderful experience there but for my Cottage to be included in your review is such a great compliment. I hope to have you back very soon. Gail

Beautiful Sis's Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Sis's Cottage was perfect. Perfect location to walk to places and very close for a short drive to Bald Head Island Ferry and to Oak Island.

The cottage was clean and equipped with everything you would need if you wanted to cook (which I didn't!!!!!). It was beautifully decorated, bright and cheerful. The arrangement of rooms was perfect for my husband and myself and our two grandsons. We gave them the upstairs which made them very happy.

My husband and I hope to return soon and hope to stay here.

Better than photographs

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to stay! It was next to a park, art gallery, very close to nice restaurants, walking distance to Marina and Southport. Beach is only a 15 min. Drive. The place was so beautifully designed and clean, I kind of wanted to takes notes for my house😂?. Everything we needed to cook in was there, washer and dryer was a bonus, loved the barn doors and the showers were perfect. Everything felt very new and fresh and very Southport with design style. Only thing I am hoping for if or when we return is a place to sit in backyard and maybe a grill.

Well appointed, artsy, coastal themed home.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sis's Cottage and Southport. Gail, the owner, obviously has an eye for decorating a home in a very stylish and tasteful way that we totally loved. It feels like the property was renovated recently and the work done and materials used were not done on the cheap. The kitchen and baths are beautiful as well as the main living space and bedrooms. The house is within walking distance to most everything in Southport and is on the historic walking tour of Southport. Also Oak Island is a short and easy drive for beach time. If you go head to the west beaches as the sand is much more powdery than Caswell. Our only regret while there was not having dinner at Mr. P's Bistro in Southport. The restaurant is a short walk from the Cottage and we couldn't get a table. The place was booked solid so if you want what seems like the best place to have a special meal in town book early.

If you are looking at Sis's Cottage for a stay in Southport book it. You will not be disappointed.

Beautiful, comfortable, classy

  • 5 of 5

Though our stay was brief, we thoroughly enjoyed Southport, and were charmed and delighted by the very comfortable amenities and artful decor at Sis’ Cottage. We’d definitely stay here again! It was clean, well-stocked, with very comfortable beds, attractive high-quality updates, and lovely, well-executed beach theme throughout. The location was wonderful, tucked away in an historic part of this charming beach town, walkable to everything.

Adorable Home & Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay at Sis's Cottage. Gail has done a fantastic job decorating her home and not one detail was forgotten. We were very impressed with how well the space was used. Everything was clean and the beds comfy! Location of the cottage is perfect because your in town but the street is quite and tucked away. Loved being able to walk to restaurants, the water, and shops. Hope to come back soon!
