Perfect Location For The Beach And Sound

This cute 3 bedroom 2 bath Hatteras Island beach cottage is a cozy spot for your next family vacation. The beach is just a 400 feet from the cottage, 5 lots away, with convenient direct beach access.

The first level houses two furnished sundecks, one facing north and one offering great southern exposure. You enter the cottage into the den area which is an expansion of the living area. The living area opens into the kitchen and dining. A full bath with shower stall is located off the kitchen.

Climb the spiral staircase to the second level where you will find two queen bedrooms, an open loft bedroom with pyramid bed, TV and children’s play nook. Also on the second level is a full bath with tub/shower combination.

It served it's purpose. I was not disappointed

  • 3 of 5

There are some changes i would make. Like: keep the AC on so that when people arrive it is not musty smelling. Install a driveway up to the walkway, that way people don't have to walk through the soggy grass. Put a table (maybe small) on the front and back decks. Use brighter light bulbs so that everything is not so dismal. Like I said, I was quite satisified. It was clean, and orderly. Yes, things are dated, but so what! I have paid a lot more and had many problems, so, it is good for the money. bob romano

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your feedback Bob. The AC units should have been on upon your arrival. I apologize for that mishap. I will make sure this gets addressed. As for the yard, it was one of the lowest on the street. However, since your visit we have added fill and raised the front yard and driveway about 6 inches. So, this should resolve the standing water issue when we have heavy rains. We also changed the bulbs out to a higher wattage to brighten up the house. The outdoor table suggestion is a great idea. We're in the market for one now, so one should be coming soon. Thanks again for your feedback and we hope you will stay with us again soon!

Great location!

  • 3 of 5

Rental is in a great location and at a great price. Although it is an older, dated unit, rental has just about everything renters might need. Sheets are an item that wasn't mentioned prior to our arrival; we used the available comforters in the place of sheets. While unit has all most all amenities necessary our only real concern was cleanliness. On the surface the unit is likely clean enough, with closer inspection the unit is in dire need of a deep cleaning. We came across more than one cockroach and all items need to be moved and scrubbed under; ex., microwave, couches, etc. We wouldn't discourage anyone from renting this unit and we'd consider staying here again, but I will highly recommend the owners have the unit deeply cleaned and exterminated.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your feedback. Sorry about the confusion around bed sheets. They are available through our rental supplier and we will be sure to communicate this better. As for the cleanliness of the house, I apologize if it didn't meet your expectations. We just finished a professional deep cleaning of the house last week and the house is cleaned after every guest. If it doesn't meet your expectation please inform us immediately and we will address it ASAP. We do have pest control program which treats the house on a quarterly basis but occasionally we'll see a water bug get by. We hope this addresses all your concerns and you will stay with us again in the near future. Thanks again!

I typically do not write negative reviews, but this affects my family. Air conditioning unit broke in 90 degree heat and didn't get a response from properly manager until my wife sent a detailed text message with everything that needed to be fixed at the house. Even then, I needed to get two fans for the downstairs. Repairman did not show until mid morning the next day. He was very nice and got another window unit for the downstairs. I understand things break. It is the way that you handle things that make a difference. We aren't demanding people but courtesy goes along way and we did rent the beach house for a week. Despite the lack of urgency, my family did have a good week away.

House had everything you needed. WIFI worked great without issue. Password is on the fridge. Booking agent was very friendly and informative. Can't wait to return.

Quiet and relaxing getaway!

  • 4 of 5

Not a large luxurious house, and the kitchen was a little crowded with two people together, but it was a wonderful home for just a few people. Appliances just a bit dated, but everything was perfectly functional. Spiral staircase was a bit of work for older knees, however. Balconies were wonderful for morning coffee and evening drinks. House was cozy. Neighborhood was quiet. Quick skip to the beach -- my favorite part. Stores close by. Would I rent again? Absolutely! Loved our stay!

Nice Anniversary Get-Away

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I were engaged in the Outer Banks, so it was great to be back in the area. The home was quaint and just big enough for us. The home needed a little TLC but it was cozy and in a great location for going to the beach.
