About the property

Beach Baby- an oceanfront 1100 sq. ft. 2nd floor condo with 2 bedrooms, 2 baths

BEACH BABY IS NOW TAKING RESERVATIONS FOR THE 2018 SEASON.

Beach Baby is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath oceanfront condo located on Hatteras Island in the Village of Avon along the shores of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore with killer views up and down the ocean’s shore. One guest said on departure he had “to pry his crying wife from our deck”. Need I say more?

Decorated with Ralph Lauren and Pottery Barn this 1100 square foot, two bedroom, 2 bath condo is upscale throughout including sand pebble quartz counters and matching island and fully stocked kitchen with settings to accommodate 8, with stainless appliances including a side by side refrigerator/freezer with ice-dispenser, double oven, stove with glass-top cooking surface, dishwasher, garbage disposal, coffee maker, Keurig coffee machine, blender, electric can-opener and mixer. The granite counter top island seats 3 for informal dining with a dining area seating 4.

The master bedroom has windows on three sides and includes sliding doors that open to the private porch with direct ocean shoreline views. Fall asleep to the sound of your own natural wave machine. This master includes a queen size Tempur-Pedic mattress, dresser, closet, 2 mirrors-one full length, and spacious private bath, HD TV and DVD player.

The guest bedroom has two comfy twin beds, a dresser, night stand, HD TV and DVD player and closet with the second full bath only steps away. Blankets, pillows and comforters are provided. Linens and towels are not provided but can be rented by contacting Helping Hands, our local vendor at phone # 1-252-995-3390 or e-mail:

The living area includes a comfortable plush sofa with matching chaise, extra pillows and throws, Minka ceiling fan, full wall entertainment center with a 55 inch LG HD TV complete with stereo sound-bar, Panasonic blue-ray DVD player, Sony MP3/I-pod docking music station (I-pod not provided) and is well stocked with DVDs, games, puzzles, cards and books of general and local interest. There is a desk and chair beneath triple windows in the living room overlooking the Atlantic and southern shores. There is condo wide high speed Internet with Wi-Fi and HD cable television service in the living room and both bedrooms.

Other amenities include a full laundry with washer/dryer combo, private porch with wooden Adirondack chairs, chaise, tables and a cocktail table with captain chairs for outside ocean front dining. The Islander features a private in-ground swimming pool with chaise lounges and chairs for our guests, picnic area with gazebo, outdoor charcoal grills, fish cleaning station, bike racks, 2 outside private showers and changing rooms, fish cleaning table and ample parking.

The Islander Condo sits behind a dune on the ocean’s shores in the heart of the village of Avon served by many restaurants and shops, several within walking distance to the Islander condominium. A plaza which includes a Food Lion Market, bank, ATM, and fresh seafood market lies just 1 mile south of Beach Baby. A fitness center, spa and medical facility are just across the street. The Avon Pier is located immediately north providing excellent pier fishing. The shallow waters of “The Canadian Hole” lie 1 mile south of Avon on the Pamlico Sound and is a popular site for sail and kite boarding. There are also several deep-sea fishing charters available locally.

Beach baby is on the 2nd living level and the Islander does not have elevator service. This is a non-smoking unit with no pets allowed.

You will be renting from the owner serviced through a local caretaker, Hatteras Helping Hands, and not a large "big-box" real estate rental company. This is a weekly rental with a 7 night minimum (Saturday to Saturday). If you want to stay less than 7 nights, the rate is based on 7 nights and not pro-rated. VRBO and the owners are the only avenue to rent Beach Baby as Beach Baby is only listed on VRBO and HomeAway property #742893. WE DO NOT USE

About James and Bonney Powers

Beach loving fanatics! We love shelling, birding and wildlife, secluded beaches, and can provide you with our perfect spots on our VRBO Hospitality Page. We feel like we own the beach at Beach Baby and you will, too.

James and Bonney Powers purchased this condo in 2012

Why James and Bonney Powers chose Hatteras Island

It was love at first sight. We LOVE the ocean. Starting when our oldest daughter was 6 months old, it was a yearly trek to the ocean. We started in Wildwood Crest NJ – then further south to Ocean City, Maryland. We continued with Virginia Beach but got REALY tired of people, high rise ten story apartments and getting up at daybreak to “set up" your postage-stamp spot on the beach! By chance a friend said try Hatteras Island and 25 years later we have never looked back.

Hatteras is unique. Once you cross the Bonner Bridge over the Oregon Inlet, a single road –North Carolina Highway 12-- will take you 26 miles out to sea - down the middle of Hatteras Island’s barrier reef into a magical place of pirate history and folklore, sand dunes and quiet beaches (with the National Seashore’s 70 miles of shoreline you can always find total seclusion somewhere). What would an Island be without pirates! Cape Hatteras is known for its famous lighthouses including the Hatteras Lighthouse itself about 5 minutes to our south in the village of Buxton.

Watch our beach on-line via the Avon Pier Cam. We are right next-door.

Avon is in the heart of our beloved American Treasure, the Cape Hatteras National Seashore so be prepared to see wild sea and bird life galore! In addition to the ever present dolphin pod, cormorant, brown pelican, laughing gull, sand-piper, and Osprey, at times you can also see tens of thousands of migrating cormorants, and the occasional grey whale, seal and manatee.

Hatteras Island is at that point in the Atlantic Ocean where the northern and southern waters meet bringing both cold and warm water sea life to our shores. The park’s fishing and surfing are considered the best on the East Coast.

What makes this condo unique

Surround yourself with nature.

If you want to take "getting away from it all" to the next level, then Hatteras Island is a perfect choice as it stretches nearly half the distance of the entire Outer Banks. At the heart of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, first time visitors and veterans alike are amazed at just how much undeveloped beach wilderness exists between the island's seven village communities. Imagine endless stretches of natural beaches, sand dunes and sea oats, with the Atlantic Ocean gently roaring to the east, and the vast shallow bay of the Pamlico Sound to your west.

On Hatteras Island, reconnect with family and friends, and yourself, through a variety of recreations. For example, you can fish right from the beach, the pier or take a charter boat out to the deep blue water of the Gulf Stream. Learn to harness the wind on a kiteboard or take lessons in leisure on paddleboards with your crew. There's little in the way of franchises and fast food but don’t confuse “doing without” with “going without.” Instead, think of soulful coastal restaurants and interesting mom-and-pop shops. While your setting will be a bit more on the untamed side of nature, accommodations are as modest or as modern as you like. The beauty of Hatteras is that you can easily reach all the other OBX hotspots, but call a simpler and quieter part of the barrier islands your home away from home.

Cape Hatteras National Seashore-is one of the last remaining secluded ocean front areas available on the east coast. The true appeal of Beach Baby lies in its close proximitry to the ocean-providing unparalleled panoramic views of the ocean, seashore and pier as well as being literally just steps from the beach. Forgot your cold drink or book? NO PROBLEM-- just a hop-skip and a jump back to the condo for a quick retrieval. After your relaxing day of beach activities, just shower in one of the 2 private showers on the ground floor before returning to Beach Baby to relax and unwind.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beach Baby has great views of the ocean shore and pier! We had a very relaxing vacation in this beautifully furnished and well stocked condo. It was the perfect size for us and loved the outdoor porch! I enjoyed my coffee to the sound of the surf every morning of our trip. Definitely going back to Beach Baby next chance I get!

As soon as we stepped foot into Beach Baby we knew our vacation was going to be amazing. The views from the master bedroom and the balcony are gorgeous and the kitchen had everything you could possibly need. Conveniently close to everything, especially the uncrowded beach! Owner is helpful and pleasant! Beach Baby made our 1st trip to the Outer Banks unforgettable!

Stunning in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Jim and Bonney, for restoring our faith in vacation rentals! It is possible to rent a clean, comfortable condo that sleeps a family of 4 in a beautiful, relaxing setting. We loved Beach Baby from the moment we stepped inside. Its furnishing are inviting and comfortable including the beds in both rooms. We would have been happy just spending time indoors, but it's the view from all windows that drew us outside. The balcony was my favorite place to be when we weren't on the beach, which is truly, just steps away. Thank you for all the restaurant and activity suggestions. It all came in very handy since this was our first trip to the Outer Banks. We're especially thankful you suggested steamed shrimp on the balcony. We loved it so much we did that twice. We hope to stay again. For two weeks next time!

Third time staying at Beach Baby!

  • 5 of 5

Beach Baby never disappoints! The photos are accurate - the views and decor just as lovely in person. We enjoyed the addition of a "keyless" lock - kureig and new patio table and captain chairs. The dishwasher and new washer and dryer were also great.

This is absolutely the most beautiful condo - high enough above the dunes to see the ocean from every view. We always enjoy Beach Baby! Thank you for having such a beautiful condo! Avon is a wonderful location to relax with just the right amount of nearby conviences.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved this place the moment we opened the door. Nicely laid out, comfortable, makes you feel right at home. the place was clean and neat. The view is awesome from just about anywhere you sit. Having the fishing pier right there just adds to the scenery. Close to the beach. Cant wait to go back again.

Life is good, life by the ocean is better!

  • 5 of 5

OHHHH SO WORTH IT! I almost missed out on the beautiful, infinite ocean views. The near deserted beach, and the posh furnishings provided from Beach Baby. I read the description, reviewed the pictures and then groaned...second floor = steps...linens and towels not provided = more after vacation laundry. It wasn't worth it...those were my initial thoughts but I kept going back to the listing. Right on the beach, 180 degree views of the ocean from the master bedroom, ocean views from the kitchen, dining and living room, two FULL bathrooms, covered deck, ocean-ocean-ocean. Beach Baby is surrounded by the ocean...the steps, linens and towels didn't seem to matter anymore. BB has a washer and dryer...I could do laundry before I went home. BEACH BABY IS PERFECT!

The accommodations are lush, the decor screams beach, if the kitchen doesn't have it you don't need it! I always book vacations through VRBO/HA but this isn't a rental, this is a home. For one week I was an islander. When the windows are open there is a lush cross breeze that brings the ocean in even -when you don't go out.

I can't describe how much I love BB. I can't do it justice. Steps - and I mean steps from the beach. The pictures are incredibly accurate, this place is simply gorgeous.

The owner, Jim is a dream. Not only is he accessible before you arrive -,he calls to check on you once you arrive. He goes above and beyond - he provides tips for grocery shopping, local hot spots, restaurants, the best seafood, and cozy places to visit. Super easy to deal with before, during and after your stay.

BB is easy to find and centrally located, across the street from a full service spa and the best chicken alfredo in the world. To repeat myself it's simply perfect! The fridge has an ice maker in the door. What vacation rental has a fridge with an in door ice maker/dispenser?!!?!?

If you want a vacation experience stay at Beach Baby - you won't want to leave but you Will remember it forever.
