Rodanthe House Rental Photos and Description

House, 6 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

OCEAN VIEWS AND ACCESS WILL RIVAL ANY SEMI-OCEANFRONT ON THE EAST COAST

Semi-Oceanfront doesn't get any better than in Rodanthe, Hatteras Island, Outer Banks. Our home, 'Isolation', is one of the best. Almost beachfront, we are only 50 feet to the beach with fabulous ocean and sound views and convenient access to both.

Hatteras Island is very narrow, and nowhere is it more narrow than Rodanthe. In addition to our ocean views, we have better sound views than some sound-side properties.

IGNITE your senses on sounds of the surf, delicious unobstructed ocean views and sunsets over the sound. With open space on three sides, you will also enjoy privacy rarely found at the beach. Spend your nights in Rodanthe at Isolation.

Stay longer –– we enjoy the FASTEST wireless internet on the island.

YOU ASKED WE LISTENED: NOW WITH ESPN and ESPN2

PROFESSIONALLY LAUNDERED LINENS ON OUR BEDS, NO EXTRA CHARGE.

This 6 year young home was custom built with thoughtful features to help you maximize your comfort and enjoyment. Its amenities include: living room with surround sound, wii, large screen tv, multiple decks, hot tub, a game room with pool table and wet bar and below-deck – a large shower/changing room, and all you need to clean and stow your surfing/wind gear.

Your family will not be disappointed here! VIEW OUR PHOTOS - YOU CAN ALMOST HEAR THE SURF.

Our Beach House name “Isolation”was chosen by the previous owner. Our first thought was to change the name, it didn’t seem welcoming enough. Then we read the history of Hatteras Island and spent some time thinking about the name, “Isolation”, that the previous owners chose.

When reading the history of Hatteras Island the word isolation jumps from the pages several times. There was no paved road on Hatteras until 1952 – prior to that, islanders drove down the sand trails, or on the beach. Until the Herbert C. Bonner Bridge was completed in 1963, the only way onto the island was by water. The islanders were truly isolated.

Our home sits somewhat isolated toward the end of a dirt road, with open lots on either side. This gives us fabulous views, even with a shorter home right in front of us. Hatteras Island homes appear relatively isolated from each other, compared to cramped neighborhoods in any other coastal vacation town. This is because only 12% of the land is built-up with most of the ground being held as a National Preserve.

We feel the name “Isolation” has a certain dignity, given the island's history, and Isolation's unique site in Rodanthe.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This was our first time to rent a home as we usually rent condos, and we were extremely pleased. What we all loved most were the views of the oceans, even though this was technically semi-oceanfront. We were so close to the water, and could see the ocean from every room. There were eight of us in our party, and we all had plenty of room and all the privacy we could ask for. Although the weather was a bit chilly while we were there, we never lacked for things to do, and still managed to walk on the beach daily. The home was well stocked, and we were able to cook meals with no trouble at all. The dining table was big enough for all of us to sit down and enjoy our meals, and again, the views were priceless. We loved everything about this house, and would love to rent it again.

LoveOBX

  • 4 of 5
We love everything about the house. It's so cozy and can accommodate quite a large family. It was just my husband and I for our visit and we just resided on the upper floor. Get up early at least once and watch the sunset. I't so worth it. Our favorite thing about this house is opening up the windows and hearing the waves (it's cool enough this time of year to do so in October). Our second favorite thing is enjoying the hot tub! The only I would say is watch the weather forecast for OBX BEFORE you come down here. There was 8 inches of rain the week before we came down here and the only road leading to Isolation was covered in 6 inches of water all week! Our little car could not go through it! Behind Isolation are EPA protected wet-lands so that's probabily why it was nearing the end of the week and the water had not shown any signs of receding. THANKFULLY, our lovely neighbors allowed us to use their driveway (right next to Isolation) and we didn't have to track through 6 inches of water all week to get to the house/vehicle. The wet driveway wouldn't be a problem for "higher-up" vehicles, though. Just low-sitting, smaller ones. But we love this house and will for sure come again (with our truck!) Lol.

Lovely home with a fantastic view!

"Isolation" was everything we could ever want in a vacation home. It was beautifully decorated throughout. The living room had lots of seating. The view of the ocean was wonderful. There was easy access to the beach.

I glad you enjoyed your stay at Isolation. We have furnished and decorated Isolation the way we would like to have if we lived there ourselves, so I'm glad you found the furnishings comfortable. We also have some of the best ocean and sound views in the area, so I'm glad you enjoyed those as well. We look forward to hosting you again in the future. Sincerely, John Breymaier

We loved our stay at Isolation.

  • 5 of 5
This was our third trip to Rodanthe and it was by far the best. We had 10 people staying this year and the house was great. The view of the ocean and distance to the beach were perfect. The road to the house was flooded but if you stayed in Rodanthe before that is to be expected and is really no big deal, the kids loved driving through the water. The only problem with that was taking out the garbage. We had to load the garbage in our vehicle and drive it out to the cans. The inside of the house was beautiful and well stocked. My only complaint for inside was the bathroom in the hallway had poor drainage in the shower. The outdoor area could also use some more clothesline space.
Overall our stay was spectacular, we didn't want to leave!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at Isolation Beach House. It has great views of both the ocean and the sound, so your completely surrounded by water. The road will flood during bad storms, but the road is asphalt on top of concrete, so you can't get stuck. We have contacted our management company about the shower drain. Thanks again for the review, and we look forward to seeing you again at Isolation Beach House

More information before arrival

  • 3 of 5
The house is beautiful, the proximity to the beach is excellent, the rooms are comfortable, and the amenities are excellent. The house itself is wonderful to rent so there is a lot to recommend it. My review focuses on the factors that detracted from the house as an excellent place to stay. First, the photos are outdated. There is a new four-story house right next to Isolation, to the left in the photo. While the two families that were in the house during our stay were perfectly nice, you can hear them quite well, so it would be useful to let people know of this new dwelling. Next, the property management company knew well in advance that the road was flooded to the house, but made no effort to inform us until we actually picked up the keys. This is problematic because we a)could have driven a different vehicle to make it through the water and b)what if we had family members with us who could not handle a walk of 1/4 mile to the house? What if we had elderly or disabled family who needed to be driven up to the house? This information would be helpful to allow people to plan accordingly. Third, there were no screens on the windows. This made it difficult to allow air to circulate, and the room with the bunk bed was particularly impacted since it doesn't have a ceiling fan. While the house has good A/C, the fact that we couldn't rely on fresh air is problematic. Fourth, the dryer was broken for quite some time prior to our arrival and no warning was given. We packed according to the description of the house having a dryer, and no one warned us the dryer would destroy clothes. Which happened to us. A repair man arrived on Monday, but didn't repair the machine until Saturday, the day before left. This was completely unacceptable.
My advice is the house is worth renting, as long as you have the information you need to make a decision about the road, the windows, the dryer, and the neighbors prior to arrival. A beautiful home but not enough information provided to avoid major inconveniences.

Beautiful home, not so great everything else

  • 3 of 5
We arrived right after a small hurricane came through and were told by the management company that the driveway was flooded. We were able to get down it in a car and SUV. We absolutely adored the home, it is decorated lovely and very spacious. However, the Jacuzzi was extremely dirty and there was still garbage from the previous week's renters. We understood the driveway being flooded, but if we got down it, why couldn't someone else to come and get the garbage? As you can imagine, garbage continued to pile up and then became a playground for frogs and snakes. The water was unavoidable for the home, but the debris left behind by the storm was dangerously close to the house and we had to walk around large objects to get to the beach. Again, the house is gorgeous (with the exception of the hot tub which was dirty and leaking, leaving it unuseable). Great location as well, but we paid a lot for the week and didn't feel as though we got our money's worth.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry that you had problems during your visit. Isolation sits in a beautiful location on Hatteras Island, but the Island is very narrow there and we do get wash over from the sound every time there is a major storm or hurricane. This hurricane had sustained winds of 100 mph and blew alot of debris over from the sound side. Our management company worked as fast as possible to clean up all debris, but had to prioritize work based on the severity of damage. Things have been cleaned up, and the hot tub is repaired. I apologize again for the problems and hope you will give us another chance at some time in the future.

Great house.

  • 4 of 5
I want to start off by saying we had a great time in this house. The negatives I will mention did not keep us from having a good time and I do not blame the owner of the house for most of them, rather Mother Nature and a poorly run Rental agency. The first issue and this is something that should be noted about the entire area of Rodanthe is that if a storm comes, there can be lots of damage and flooding. The road to the house was flooded and you would need a 4X4 to get to the house. A phone call was made to us by the rental agency Saturday morning but we had already left. We were not prepared for that and it did make things difficult in terms of finding parking for the car that couldn't get to the house etc. The neighbor in front was very helpful and helped us through the process but the woman at Shore Vacations said she didn't know what to tell us. I want to add that I had emailed this agency right after the storm and asked about the house without a response. I assumed that all was well but there was debris everywhere in the area and we understood they were all doing the best they could.

The view that you get from the house is amazing and well worth our aggravation of finally getting into the house. There is another house that has moved to the left of this rental that is not shown in the pics. I didn't really care but some people may. The accommodations were wonderful. Comfortable furniture and beds. The TV's are older and some of the people were a bit upset about that but again, did not ruin our time. Kitchen was well stocked. Another refrigerator would be helpful but we made it through.

The biggest issue we had was the dryer. After second day, it started making a weird sound and then put black marks on our clothes. We called the rental agency and we were told they had no idea when someone would come as they were told by maintenance, we will get there when we get there. I found this completely unacceptable and it was not fixed by the time we left. I contacted the owner who responded quickly via Facebook but at this point we were getting ready to leave. Again, I blame the rental agency for not finding a way to fix this.

I want to say that we would stay at this house again. There is not much to do in Rodanthe so be prepared for true relaxation. Avon is about 25 minutes away and has a full service grocery store, there are a few places to buy basic necessities so I recommend bringing as much as you can in the beginning.
