Hatteras Island Oceanfront Big Pool Awesome View Right On The Best Beach!

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


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 ocean?' 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 $200 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.

So much to rave about!! 4.5 rating!!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay here. Big plusses: hvac kept us plenty cool on both levels AND the beds were all extremely comfy. The kitchen was very well equipped. Our large #s (8 adults and 4 children), though, overcrowded the refrigerator, so we wound up keeping ice chests filled during the week. The pool area was so nice, though it lacked shade. We remedied this by renting an umbrella that fit perfectly in the hole in the center of a patio table. Another rented umbrella + stand remedied lack of shade on the top level. Bedrooms are all very small - no biggie for us, but I can't see how any could accommodate a pack/play or a crib. All told, we'd definitely consider renting this if we come back to Hatteras Island

Perfect Location

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time in the Outer Banks, and we had a very nice week in Waves. We were so glad that we chose this area and this house! Our whole family loved the privacy and quiet. The house is as advertised (some photos of the outdoor areas should be updated), and the beach access is perfect. The beach is a very short walk over the dune and feels like your own beach. There aren't that many other people out there. We hung out in the sand and watched the surfers.

The house offers a large pool, lots of space indoors, and gorgeous views from the decks. We sat on the third floor deck watching dolphins swim by.

I wish we could have stayed another week, because we were really just settling in when it was time to leave. We would love to visit again now that we are familiar with the area.

We enjoyed our stay over spring break very much. We woke up and had coffee watching dolphins and whales swim! Spent most of our time on the beach conveniently in front of this house! My husband and brother caught lots of fish which they let go.If they wanted to keep them they easily could have taken them back to the house.

The owners responded quickly to our questions and getting to the property was a piece of cake.Did I mention we saw dolphins and whales!?

It was an amazing week and wish we could have stayed longer.

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.
