About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

This is the perfect house for one family or two families that want to spend a week together at the Outer Banks in an Oceanfront home with pool.

We are right on the beach in Waves , about a mile south of the Rodanthe pier.

The views of the ocean are spectacular, and the pool and hot tub and white sand beach right in front make for lots of different things to do for fun. The short walk to the pier makes fishing easy and they let you take your dog onto the pier.

There are two bedrooms on the second level next to the kitchen and dining room. Then there are two bedrooms on the top floor next to the great room. The fourth floor is a loft with a futon.

Oh, and the waves are great right out in front of the house if you surf or boogie board. There are no vehicles allowed on the beach in front of these houses.

Kids and grownups love the Large 16x34 foot SWIMMING POOL, close proximity to the beach, (our own private path see the PHOTOS), the killer hot tub with ocean views, and the Dairy Queen for after dinner ice cream just a bike ride or skateboard or stroll up the street. It is a comfortable Oceanfront house with nothing between you and the ocean except sand! The pool area is spacious and well lit at night for grilling and swimming after dark.

4 bedrooms ( plus 'pool room', which really is a 5th bedroom) and 3 baths with an outdoor shower.

The water is clean and green and the ocean is fabulous right in front of the house.

The owner's profile picture is of me and my surfboard and dog on the beach right in front of the house. National Seashore, turtles, manta rays.....surfing, sun bathing and boogy-boarding right in front of the house.

This location is in Waves, NC, about a mile south of the Rodanthe pier on Hatteras Island. Just turn toward the Ocean off Hwy 12 at the Dairy Queen.

The house borders directly on the beach. It is only a short walk over magnificent dunes to the water's edge.

YOU CAN'T GET ANY CLOSER TO THE BEACH THAN THIS HOUSE, IT IS OCEANFRONT.(We are always getting questions, 'is it on the ccean?' Yes!!)

There is also a screened-in porch off the kitchen that looks out over the pool, a south facing third floor sundeck with a hot tub and epic views of the Atlantic, and a fireplace on the third floor for the cooler spring and fall nights.

On the ground floor off the pool deck, the pool room has its own bath, a single bed, refrigerator, TV and queen size sleeper sofa. During the day this room is a play room and an exercise area with free weights and at night this can serve as a fifth bedroom, with its own bathroom and a nice view of the pool.

The house features pillowtop mattresses and feather pillows so we can listen to the sound of the ocean from comfortable beds. (Have you ever vacationed and slept on a hard bed----Not here!) With the four bedrooms 12 beds and the pool room serving as a bedroom, the house can sleep a lot of people.

There are excellent views of the ocean from just about anywhere on the second and third floors and loft, from inside or out on the decks. You can see the ocean while lounging in the hot tub! On the second level there is a large dining area and fully stocked kitchen, with views of the pool and ocean from inside or from the deck or screened in porch.

The high cathedral ceiling on the third floor and large trapezoid windows combine to give a feeling of space to the top floor like a ski chalet. We watched a meteor shower once from inside the house just looking up through the high windows. Spectacular!

For those of you who have been to Hatteras Island, you probably already know that it is the premier destination on the East Coast if you are into fishing, surfing, kitesurfing, windsurfing, beaching, catching rays, kite-flying, sitting by the pool, grilling, shelling, bonfires on the beach (yes it's legal Or maybe you just want to sit and watch sports or a movie on the HDTV big screen( with a DVD player and VCR )while listening to and looking out over the ocean, or check your e-mail (yes we have wireless!), or simply enjoying the sound of the ocean with a good book. We do all of these things and more in the comforts of a Oceanfront home with virtually all the amenities.

Please call at first number below during the week or second number below on weekends if you have further questions.

Pets are welcome if housebroken and on flea preventative treatment... A $500 damage and cleaning deposit will be required and returned in full if the home is left clean and undamaged. We also require a $130 charge for linen service. Bring towels.

Crossing over the Bonner Bridge onto Hatteras Island you leave the other world behind. We hope your experience is as satisfying as it has been for us.

Beautiful location, home needs a deep clean.

  • 2 of 5

The location of this property can't be beat, right on the ocean, beautiful views. We watched dolphins play in the waves from the balcony. We knew the town would be mostly shutdown, which is what we were looking for, due to the time of year. However, the property had also been abandoned.

While the owner charges a cleaning deposit and asks guests to clean up prior to leaving, its clear that he has no way of telling if they don't clean up, and doesn't have a regular deep cleaning crew.

Unfortnately, this was a blight on our stay. My parents couldn't handle the dust and grime and drove home a day early.

When we arrived everything looked ok, if not dated. We came after a long drive at night. Just noticed that the appliances were 70s era, the stove had a lot of carbon build up and grease on the glass, most of the outside lights were burned out, the freezer was not making Ice properly (it was a solid brick). The next morning we found moldy coffee and grounds in the pot and brewer, mold on the shower curtain, noticed fuzzy dust growing on all the vents and air filter. The ceiling fan had 1/4" fuzzy edge on each blade.

The third day I went to use the grill because my Mom wouldn't eat out of the oven (one of the burners was burned out on the stove too), and heated it up to 500. The grill caught fire and burned for 10 min without LP it was so greasy and dirty. I also found a shattered picture frame on the wall in the pool house.

I contacted the owners about all of this and have received no response except from his secretary who said she passed along the message.

Overall, the location was nice. Unfortunately the house was such a distraction that it was difficult for our extended family to get together and relax for the holidays. We were constantly finding something else to be grossed out about and couldn't really settle in. I am sure this could be solved with a better system for cleaning put in place by the owner. Heck, just charge more and hire a management company instead of putting the burden on the guest.

Owner's Response: This is an outstanding house as is evidenced by the numerous favorable reviews. November 3rd was 5 stars! 8 of our last 9 reviews were 5 stars!! Please read them for a full picture of this property. I do not understand this, we have NEVER had a guest complain about this cleaning person. NEVER. These people were upset and claim that the house was dusty, but please note that it was the dead of winter, and nobody had occupied the house in over a month. Our cleaning person had cleaned it after the last guests about a month before. People often get grumpy and have cabin fever when they come to the beach and it is freezing outside. That's all I can figure. Its too bad too, because we had closed the house for the winter and reopened it to accommodate these guests. I had closed the hot tub and reopened it at additional expense to make it available. I also made sure the fireplace was working. The grill is new, the appliances are not 70s era, and ice will turn to a block in the freezer if left for a month! I say just throw it out and let the icemaker make more! Sometimes the folks before don't always clean the grill, I'm not sure that any grill won't catch on fire at 500 degrees, but .... and at the end of the season we do have a few burned out light bulbs. I will be there myself next month with a fresh supply. Rest assured that this guest is an exception. We take pride in people having a good time, we are sorry that a few minor problems were a distraction for these folks. I was out of town but did try to address their concerns but this guest refused to return my call. We will of course change light bulbs and deep clean before Spring, 2017. Call me if you have further questions.

We had such a wonderful vacation here. The house had ample space, the pool was wonderful and the beach was beautiful. The views from the house were perfect. Beach in the morning, pool in the afternoon and Jacuzzi at night. Enough said! Would definitely rent again.

Simply the best!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were at this beach home the first two weeks of August and we loved it. We have been going to OBX for a number of years but this home was absolutely the best beach home we have rented. We had 4 generations in the home and everyone had plenty of room. When we arrived the home was very clean and welcoming. The POOL was out of this world so big, clean and well maintained. This home is so close to the beach even my 85 year old mother went to the beach. It was certainly enjoyed by all. My daughter and her husband stayed in OBX in the Corolla area just a few weeks before they visited us in this Waves home. She stated that the home in Corolla was much noisier than this home in Waves. What can I say but this home is great and I would rent it again.

Great Place for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about how great this place is. It sleeps 12 or more people, has a wonderful (large, well kept) swimming pool and every appliance and utensil you could ever want. Refrigerator, freezer, air conditioning and washing machines (in short everything) worked great. We did not have one single problem with this property. We felt at home the minute we walked in and we felt sad to "leave home" when we departed on Saturday. I will definitely be back. My one concern initially was the distance from restaurants and amenities of Kitty Hawk but there were plenty of great restaurants and stores within minutes of this home. By all means please plan on using this home and if you ever need an even stronger recommendation, just call me. Both George and Kim have my phone number.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the positive review. We work very hard every year to make sure that this vacation home is going to be trouble free and suited to the groups who request it. Our caretaker, Jamie, meticulous in her cleaning and responsive to problems which might arise during the course of your stay. Why would anyone want to stay n a hotel when they an book a beach house like this one. We were fully booked again this summer, many of them return visitors and advance bookings.

We'll be back

  • 5 of 5

My review is a bit late. We visited in August of 2015. I actually had to ask the property owner how to post a review when I emailed him to ask for another reservation for this summer. We're going back.

We are really in trouble - I can't believe we are going back the same place again but our family cannot think of anywhere else we'd rather be than back at this house. We like to travel - but this spacious and cozy home on beautiful property has us hooked!

We are from New York and have spent many many summer vacations on Cape Cod - (never at the same place twice). The cape too is lovely but this house will cast a spell on you. You will instantly feel at home and you will have to force yourself to leave the property. We did travel up and down the coast a bit (we had to get food and supplies and had to see lighthouses and piers at least :-) The location of this place is positively perfect if you want to avoid the commotion of Nags Head area! It's about 20 miles south and has just enough but not too many lovely in and outdoor restaurants, gift shops, and stores for any supplies you may need and quite reasonable prices (a terrific and unexpected benefit). The folks who serve the visitors treat visitors like they are residents. There is a supermarket about 15 miles south, though the local shops have most of what you would need at the last minute (e.g., wine, breakfast items, beach gear).

As for the house - it is sooooooooooooo big that you could find a cozy corner somewhere and feel like you were all by yourself! The kitchen is exceedingly well stocked with cooking supplies and dishware. The beds are so comfy and the living room has plenty of space for the crowd to circle in for evening games and chatter. The decks made us feel as though we were at different places at different times of day! We had happy hour up in the sky on the third deck, Coffee in the morning on the main deck, and swimming and grilling at dinner time on the pool deck. Different views from every angle and the second you have a look, you will not want to go home. You won't want to even go out to dinner even once. (We did - once - because we had a birthday - but only the birthday girl wanted to eat out.)

The walk to the beach looks much farther in the photos than it really is (1 minute)? Just far enough to make you feel you burned enough calories to lounge on the shore all day. :-) Very pristine shoreline and more gorgeous views...You have to go here!
