“Laid-back and casual”
Reviewed 26 June 2011

Great beach atmosphere without all the frills. The house shows its age and the decor makes the place feel like Margaritaville, but Pam was very friendly and the breakfast was *delicious*. Home-made sweet potato waffles... wow. Orcacoke is small, and Pam's is slightly outside the village - about a 5-10 minute walk. We opted to walk instead of bike since the bikes were in very poor repair - missing grips, rusted, torn seats - not what we were expecting.

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay but sorry that you were disappointed with our bikes. Living at the beach is great, but unfortunately, the coastal weather does take a toll on our bikes. Sometimes, a few bikes need to be taken out of rotation for repair...but we strive to have at least two working bikes available for each room. Thank you for your feedback. We are working extra hard to upgrade the fleet!

My husband and I stayed at Pam's in the Sun Daze room for two nights in the summer. You can not find a better deal on the island! It is by no means a frilly-hoity-toity kind of place that you are afraid to breathe in. The house is decorated in bright, welcoming colors and is very comfortable and relaxed.
Our stay inclucded wonderfuly homecooked breakfasts each morning, coolers, beach chairs and our favorite: bicycles for getting around the village.
Pam and Mike are wonderful hosts and it's obvious they love what they do. We came home wanting to buy a B&B of our own so we could enjoy what we do too!
We also really enjoyed sitting on the top sky deck in the evening and morning with a cup of coffee listening to the sounds of Ocracoke village.
It's located perfectly just as you are getting into the village, so you are convenient to the beach or restaurants and shops. When we got there the first day we parked our car and didn't move it until it was time to leave. We rode the complimentary bicycles to all of the Island attarctions, including the beach.
We chose one of the smaller rooms in order to keep our costs down, and it was a bit snug but no more than some hotels I've stayed at and it didn't put a damper on anything. When you're on ocracoke you really don't want to be indoors much anyways =)
We would definitely stay here and recomend Pam's to anyone looking for a great stay on Ocracoke!

We could not have been more pleased. Pam and Mike have a rare gift of making you feel welcome and comfortable without being intrusive. The breakfasts were served family style with an excellant variety of choices including fresh fruits, baked goods, eggs and bacon. The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable.

We have stayed at Pam and Mike's many times and always have a fantastic time. We've stayed in almost every room and each one has a unique decor and feel. Favorites are the two front rooms (Zen Sunrise and Deep Blue) with the shared deck. We kind of like it's location because it's always nice and quiet. It's only a short walk/bike ride to the village. The breakfasts are the best anywhere! And if you're lucky enough, you'll get to hear Mike and his friends pickin' some mighty fine music out on the porch.

Honestly, I can't say enough good things about this Bed and Breakfast. It's very clear that the owners, Pam and Mike, are passionate about what they're doing because it shows in both the big things and the little details. I vacationed there on my honeymoon and my husband and I had such a nice time we wouldn't stay anywhere else on our next trip to Ocracoke. The breakfasts were fabulous. Pam went out of her way to make sure each day she served us something we hadn't had. They were so kind and really made our honeymoon extra special.
