This was our 1st trip to Ocrocoke in many years. We traveled with great friends who have always stayed at Edwards, so, they got each couple a Bungalow. They were in unit #9, and, we were in #10. This is, without a doubt, the cleanist place I've ever stayed. The rooms are not large, but, it's all anyone would need. The rocking chairs on the front porch were perfect. We enjoyed sitting out there, meeting wonderful neighbors, and, doing some "people" watching. Trudy, Wayne & Bert work extremely hard every day to make this a great place to visit. They are a hard working family! From cutting grass, to scrubing toilets, they do it all. The location is great, not in the middle of everything, but, right on the edge. Bicycles or golf carts are the best means of transportation. If you are looking a simple place to stay, that is extremely clean, and, has a very warm & helpful staff/owners, I highly recommend Edwards of Ocracoke.

Room Tip: Our #10 Bungalow was small, but, had a great porch with rocking chairs. Privacy was nice.

I don't get the allure of this island. Merchandized OBX. Average food. Very crowded. The islanders are unfriendly - including the owners of Edwards.

Edwards of Ocracoke was recommend to us on the Ferry from Swan Quarter. What a nice find...the Bungalow Rooms were very clean and well maintained. The bathroom was very clean and the shower very roomy. Loved the rocking chairs on the covered porch and they offered Wi-Fi. Would definitely stay at Edwards on my next visit to Ocracoke. The Edwards staff recommend the Ocracoke Coffee Company...what a find...plenty of seating inside and out...good coffee and pastries.

I've been to Ocracoke with my family over 10 times in the past 15 years, yet I never even noticed the place. More recently, we've rented homes on the island, which has worked quite well. So when we planned a last minute trip to Ocracoke, I called around and looked at the reviews on TripAdvisors and saw all the positive comments about Edwards of Ocracoke.

So we went for it and rented a 2BR/1BA attached cottage. What we got was exactly what others had stated in their reviews about Edwards. It is classic, basic Ocracoke, which in my mind, is what Ocracoke is all about. The cottage is perfect for a family of 4. The screened in porch is surprisingly private too. The cottage is also conveniently located near the Ocracoke Coffeehouse, Back Porch restaurant and other area retail stores and galleries.

If I could make one criticism, it would be that the wall AC unit in the living/kitchen is pretty loud when operating and has limited effectiveness in cooling the bedrooms, even with the ceiling fan going. It does manage to take the humidity out of the cottage, but even at 73 degrees at night, it is taxed a bit.

The staff and owners were very accommodating and friendly and gave some excellent recommendations regarding some of the newer restaurants on the island or on ones that have changed hands in recent years.

Again, I would not hesitate to recommend Edwards of Ocracoke for those that want a traditional Ocracoke experience at a reasonable price.
