About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Located in picturesque Hatteras Village. This 2 bedroom 2 bath cottage is just steps from the beach. You can park your car, relax, and begin to enjoy island living. Ride your bike or walk to artisan shops, art galleries, marinas, restaurants, and the Ocracoke Ferry.

Our cottage is perfect for a couple or a small family. Everything you need for your vacation is here. Two lots back from the ocean, the beach is just steps away across a community boardwalk. You can walk for hours on our beautiful, unspoiled beaches or you can just relax under your umbrella and read that book you’ve been saving for the beach. Water sports enthusiasts can kite board, kayak, windsurf, or even para sail.

Fishermen can fish from the surf or charter a day trip at one of the marinas. There is a locked storage area under the house making it easy to stow your beach and fishing gear. Chairs, beach umbrellas, boogie boards and sandcastle building toys are provided for you.

Our home is nicely furnished and includes a roomy combined living/dining area. A well equipped modern kitchen has a large refrigerator with an ice maker, a microwave, and a dishwasher. The laundry is a separate room adjacent to the living area.

The screened porch off the kitchen, through sliding glass doors, is popular with all our guests. There is a big table and chairs on the screened porch that provides a space for outdoor dining .

Well furnished outdoor decks are comfortable for sunbathers and sunsets.

For entertainment, there are three televisions and DVD players, and a video library with a nice variety of movies. Charter Cable, high speed Internet, and WiFi are all included.

The two bedrooms are comfortable with good quality bedding. One has a queen size bed and the other has a full size platform bed with a memory foam mattress and twin beds with new mattresses. All beds have mattress pads, pillows and quilts.

Bed linens are provided and your beds will be made and ready for you upon arrival. Bring your own towels or put in your request for towels at Shore Details, the folks who service our cottage!

There are two full bathrooms, plus a large private outdoor shower with hot water for rinsing off after a day on the beach.

We want you to have a good vacation at a reasonable cost. The basic weekly rental is just that. You pay the basic rate, tax and cleaning. At this time VRBO has added an additional charge for using their listing service.

Bernadette's Beach Bungalow is a Shore Details cottage. The folks at Shore Details make sure the cottage is clean and ready for you at check in. They are also available to help you with any maintenance problems during your stay.

Shore Details can help you with grocery delivery, catering , or planning excursions while you’re on the island. They believe that details matter, and so do we!

What makes this cottage unique

Hatteras is a village, home to many of our local people and charter boat families. There is a grocery store, a hardware store, good restaurants, a library, a museum, the Coast Guard base, great marinas, and quiet island living. You can walk to everything in Hatteras or you can ride your bike anywhere. If you like more excitement, you can drive an hour to Nags Head for shopping and golf. If you want to step back in time, you can take the free ferry to Ocracoke and spend the day. Get away from it all at Bernadette's Beach Bungalow!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

After some days of waiting for the mandatory evacuation on Hatteras Island due to power out to be lifted we had a couple of wonderful relaxing days with a steady sea breeze and big waves. It was worse waiting for. We enjoyed evenings on the screened porch and Kids enjoyed some DVDs as weather kept us inside sometimes. Even if our Vacation on the Island was cut short we loved every minute. Outer Banks are always beautiful, no matter what kind of weather.

We would love to go back again in the future.

Great place to get away

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for letting us stay at your place. It was perfect and close to the beach. We had two adults, three teenage boys and a Labrador retriever. We liked that it was away from all the craziness, but you could walk to the beach and ride bikes to the general store. The kitchen was well equipped and the decks were great. We would love to go back.

"Cozy Cottage" says it all - a great place to spend some leisure time in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

With 50+ years of vacation experiences under my belt, I have to say that this cottage is one of the nicest, if not THE nicest I've ever had the pleasure of staying in. The conveniences were modern (as was the general look and feel of the cottage), and the furniture was attractive and comfortable. The beds were neither too soft nor too hard. Everything was neat and clean when we arrived, and we felt welcomed and well accommodated. Additional pluses have to include of course, the short and easy walk to a gorgeous stretch of beach, and the relatively short and easy walk to nearby restaurants. The cottage was located in a quiet neighborhood (though we were there in mid-October - I don't know how much that might change, if any, in the high season), near the end of Hatteras Island. Thank you Mary & Dave for sharing your cottage with us!

Beautiful cottage on a budget

  • 4 of 5

Cottage was on a quiet street. Easy to find. Close to the beach but not recommended for someone whom had issues with health. Very clean & inviting. Needs update to indoor & outdoor furniture. Check in time should be earlier than it was. Other than that it's worth the money.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review Geneva. Check in and out times are based on the need to clean and service cottage between guests. As the new owners we plan on updates for the 2018 season. We hope you consider staying with us again @ Bernadette's. Mary & Dave

Perfect for us!

Very clean, had pretty much everything we needed, was steps to the beach, and a short walk to a good restaurant if we didn't want to cook.
