About the property

Great Views! 4 Master Bedrooms, Bonus Bunk Room, Pool, Hot Tub And More.

We love our home here at the end of the rainbow and hope you will, too. It’s a special place, with gorgeous views over the dunes so you can enjoy the ocean without even leaving the house. There are windows all the way around the third-floor great room, a loft which allows you to see far and wide, large decks on every level, and a screened-in porch on the back side of the house to watch sunsets over the sound. The beach is just over the dunes – you couldn’t be closer. Our grandchildren and friends love the solar-heated private pool and we enjoy the hot tub even in cool weather. The top floor has a beautiful open kitchen which is fully equipped with everything you’ll need, and there’s plenty of room for the whole family in the dining room, with a table that seats eight, a breakfast bar, and a separate breakfast table. If you would like to barbecue, there is a weber gas grill in the carport. The great room features a 40-inch flat-screen hdtv with satellite service, a dvr and a blu-ray dvd player. Beyond the great room is a small office nook with a desk. The house also boasts an elevator, which we love to use for carrying luggage and groceries. The treasure for us here at the end of the rainbow has been wonderful times with friends and family, set against the background of this beautiful beach. We wish you the same!

About Dennis Smith

We fell in love with this area over 20 years ago and decided to buy our own place early on. We love the beach, the sunsets, the relaxed nature of this beautiful place. We love to spend time down here, and we believe you will too. It is our privilege to offer a place where great family memories can be built.

Dennis Smith purchased this house in 2004

Why Dennis Smith chose Hatteras Island

We had this house built for us in 2004 by Renaissance Construction, one of the premier builders on the Outer Banks. We had owned another house, and were able to build this one to our specific wishes. End of the Rainbow was built to capitalize on the gorgeous views while providing great amenities: pool, hot tub, elevator, HD TV, and more.

What makes this house unique

A great house for your family or for several families together. Four master bedrooms give each group the comfort and privacy they want, yet still can be close to all the action. The beach is just a few minutes away across the dunes and there are lots of things to do within a short drive.

Can't Wait to Come Back

  • 5 of 5

Views were spectacular, short walk to the beach. House was clean, traveled with 3 families there was more than enough space for everyone. Kitchen was well stocked had everything we needed to prepare our meals. Loved that their were two ovens. The pool and hot tub area was a hit with the whole family. This was our first time to OBX and we "Can't Wait to Come Back" next year.

Beautiful, clean, and well put together!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time! We've stayed in many beach houses and this one definitely takes the cake! The elevator was great for loading and un-loading luggage, and over all the house was very well equipped and organized. Loved having a private pool and hot tub, such a beautiful property!

Gorgeous Vacation Home With Great Amenities

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love this beautiful ocean front home. Plenty of space and privacy for the whole family. We enjoy cooking in the well stocked kitchen and starting and ending our days on the deck overlooking fantastic ocean views. The pool and hot tub are enjoyed by all of us. We love that the pool is solar heated and the brand new hot tub located by the pool was wonderful. We've stayed here for the last 4 years and plan to return next year! Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with our family!

Great House

  • 5 of 5

This house was ideally located. We were close enough to all the amazing sites (Wright Brothers National Memorial; the lighthouses; the Chicamacomico Life Saving Station, etc) to see, but far enough away to enjoy just being in the Outer Banks. We loved the view and walking on the beach every morning. The house was well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Everyone liked having their own room with a bathroom. The beds were very comfortable. The elevator was a plus on arrival and departure day and sometimes in between. We took advantage of the hot tub, but were too early to take advantage of the pool. The Diamond Shoals in Hatteras and the Froggy Dog in Avon were both good places to eat, but most of the time we cooked and enjoyed this lovely house. I would recommend this home to anyone visiting the Outer Banks. Great location, clean, with a lot of wonderful amenities.

Watersports abound! Swimming, surfing, kiteboarding, paddleboarding and kayaking are all available just a few minutes away from the house. Check out Real Watersports a few blocks south or Kitty Hawk Kites a few blocks north. If you like to fish, you can surf fish, pier fish, fish in the sound, or hire a charter for the big ones out in the Gulf Stream. There are several casual restaurants in the Rodanthe-Waves-Salvo area. Atlantic Coast Café and Top Dog Café are a short walk up to Highway 12 from the house. Lisa’s Pizza is a very popular local restaurant that is just a short drive north in Rodanthe. For your sweet tooth, Dairy Queen is just at the end of the block (it is only open Memorial Day to Labor Day). We highly recommend the Orange Blossom Bakery and Café in Buxton for breakfast. It’s a 30-minute drive to get there, but it is well worth it! Be sure to try their apple uglies (the biggest apple fritter you have ever seen). They also have great donuts and breakfast sandwiches.
