75 FEET TO YOUR BEACH BLANKET

Rodanthe Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

W I N D C H I M E S

THAT BLUE IS THE OCEAN!!

WE'RE IN THE SAND! HEAR AND SEE THE SURF!

(You do not need a 4 wheel drive to access)

NOW BOOKING SUMMER 2015... 6 WEEKS LEFT....

We are next to a long undeveloped property allowing for UNOBSTRUCTED OCEAN VIEWS AND ACCESS the likes of which you will be hard pressed to find at these rates anywhere on the east coast. Step off the new deck, and you are 80 feet to your beach blanket.

Wind Chimes has been lifted off the sand, two ocean front windows added, painted throughout with new furniture and décor. Thoughtful features have been included to maximize our space.

Please note: VRBO has gone to an automated rate system and the rate they show is incorrect. Please call for rates. I will fix this as soon as I figure out how to. Rates include bed linens

Your rates for this view and access are unprecedented. WHY? Because Wind Chimes is a “One back” -with a cottage in front (though staggered to the right)– AND is a modest size (1,000 square feet). We want you to be delighted with Wind Chimes - Please – Six person maximum.

This home is perfect for those who want fabulous beach views and access without climbing multiple flights of stairs to the living areas. Only 14 steps and you are inside.

If you are somewhat adventurous email owner to book November-March - the weather can be quite eventful.

Please respect our dune, stay on the paths to the beach.

VRBO just changed the way my rates are viewed. I have not figured out how to fix it yet. No weeks open for summer at this time.

We are a family of 5 - John and I have 2 gorgeous sons - 28 and 27 (the 27 year old is often mistaken for Ryan Gosling) and a lovely 17 year old daughter.

We love swimming, kayaking, walking the beach, collecting sea shells and chilling.

The Jameson family loves remodeling and renovation projects, and had a blast updating this adorable cottage.

Marti Jameson purchased this cottage in 2010

John and Marti were inspired to purchase Wind Chimes for its unique quality - Although a Small Cottage, it has fabulous beach access and views. Most beach lots with such great views and access would have a much larger house at a much larger price tag. Wind Chimes is perfect for smaller gatherings.

While the Google map shows Wind Chimes as 2 back from the ocean, in the volatile world of the OBX it is now a 1 back. You can see on the map the long lot to the north, which is undeveloped - allowing for jaw-dropping views and access.

Marti and John love Hatteras Island for its large natural preserves and love Rodanthe especially for its unparalleled views and water access. Hatteras Island is so narrow in Rodanthe, that you can walk to and see both the ocean and the sound from Wind Chimes. John and Marti felt a need for a cozy cottage to delight smaller groups - and are sensitive to super-active guests and older ones who feel stifled by multiple flights of stairs - 14 steps from sand to kitchen.

If you like a beach just busy enough to be interesting, but want enough space so that no one is ever close enough to hear your conversations, this is for you. There are surfers and dolphins year-round to watch, swim or fish in the surf, shop, or make Tie-Dyes like we did. Take a walk or jog up the beach, past the newly-located 'Nights in Rodanthe' Inn. Visit the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum down island. You can be as busy or lazy as you want. This is NOT Ocean City, MD - if you crave auto congestion, high-rises, and McDonald's, this is NOT for you.

SWEET LITTLE BEACH HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
I hated to leave Wind Chimes this morning. It was a perfect getaway. The house had everything we needed and the beach is beautiful. I enjoyed walking on the beach every morning and watching the sunset from the top deck. The kids rode the waves on their boogie boards and collected shells along the beach. I can't wait to come back. Thanks for sharing your house with us.

EXCELLENT BEACH HOUSE IN OUTER BANKS

  • 5 of 5
With all the rentals that sleep 12 and up, I thought it would be difficult to find a smaller house on the beach for our small family of three . . . but Wind Chimes was perfect! The house was very comfortable and we settled in quickly for our week of relaxation. This was out first trip to the Outer Banks, and it couldn't have been better. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you'll ever need to cook with. We loved sitting on the deck(s) watching the sunrise and set, the surfers, and the pelicans! We did a little exploring of the island, but were happy to hang at the house and relax. We will definitely return to Wind Chimes!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Scott, we love Wind Chimes for its compact size, too. It is so rare to find a beach front cottage small enough to afford without taking a large group along. We love going in the off season to walk the beach and watch the kite surfers too.

It so nice to know you appreciated Wind Chimes, thanks for taking the time to write. Hope to see you on the reservation list again soon!

PERFECT BEACH HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
Our first experience on the Outer Banks, and this house was just perfect for our family of 3, plus 2 good friends. We wanted a not-too-big house on the water, and this was it. Two people in our party are surfers, and this was an excellent location for that. The office was great to work with, too. We hope to be able to come back another year, a little more in season next time!

ONCE WIND CHIMES, ALWAYS WIND CHIMES!

  • 5 of 5
Looking at other very satisfied occupants’ comments in the Wind Chimes guestbook, one is not surprised to find descriptive words such as “beautiful house”, “ideal vacation house” or even better: “home away from home”. I couldn’t agree more. Having been a guest of Wind Chimes for at least eight years, I can vouch for the truth and sincerity of these statements. But last year (2011) old Wind Chimes was purchased by the Jameson family and experienced a total transformation, a rejuvenating facelift: Additional windows were installed, thus allowing much more daylight to penetrate; the entire house was tastefully refurnished and painted with warm colors, a new, large TV was provided, and the kitchen was completely modernized to make anyone’s stay in the house even more pleasant.

But what I found absolutely remarkable is that the Jameson family not only opened the door to their home, they opened their hearts with their warm welcome. Marti and John are not just running a business, they are genuinely interested in the well-being of their tenants, and we felt this through a multitude of little details. Just look at the colorful and bountiful set of dishes, the two coffee machines (you can now drink decaf at the same time as another guest imbibes their regular coffee), utensils just like at home, the comfortable furniture, etc. They fixed up the house as if they were going to live in it themselves!

I find the unique location of the house footsteps from the beach with the soothing sound of the waves, the terrace overlooking Ocean and Sound providing spectacular views of sunrise and sunset, together with the incomparable serenity of the Outer Banks extremely invigorating. Even my older son who lives in a Hawaiian paradise finds it rewarding to make this 8,000 miles trip! Personally, a week at Wind Chimes totally regenerated me and helped repair a strained relation with my son. What can one want more from a vacation?

To all my successors at Wind Chimes: Enjoy this home (not just a “vacation house”), treat it as if it were your own, reset your button for the coming year, return often. I know I will. I’ve already booked for next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Francis. John and I are so thankful for returning guests who treat our cottage like their own. We love to relax at the cottage several times during the year, so I am always trying to find ways to make it a little better. This summer we will enjoy ourselves with our kids and a few of their friends along.

GREAT EVERYTHING . . . LOCATION, HOUSE AND HOMEOWNERS!!!

  • 5 of 5
WOW!!! What can we say? We had a wonderful vacation at Wind Chimes! Marti and John have a great “home away from home”. Wind Chimes is a “traditional” Hatteras Island cottage that is perfect for a couples “romantic getaway” or a small family vacation. This house feels like you are ocean front . . . so close you can hear the ocean with ease 24 hours a day. We really enjoyed the proximity and easy access to the beach. The house is very charming, clean, cozy, and comfortable, has great views and all the amenities you would expect. The kitchen is well equipped (including a crock pot), but, if you don’t want to cook, the local restaurants have great food. (We suggest you try Sting Wray’s where Terry, the manager, will take care of you.)
We especially enjoyed our morning coffee at the picnic table on the deck, watching the boats, dolphins, pelicans, seagulls and surfers. The “crow’s nest” has wonderful views of the ocean and sound, and is great for sunrise and sunset pictures. We reveled in the natural beauty of the island and the fishing was great too. We had the pleasure of meeting a special seagull, known to the locals as “Jonathan”. We appreciate the historical sites in the area, especially the Chicamacomico Life Saving Station. It is a very interesting place and Linda and James (the “caretakers”) are extremely knowledgeable of the stations history.

The pictures shown on VRBO are beautiful, but you simply cannot capture how special the house is or the beauty of Rodanthe. A short walk down the beach, you stroll past the Serendipity House featured in the movie "Nights of Rodanthe". If you haven’t read the book or watched the movie, both are available at Wind Chimes. Marti and John are exceptional owners to deal with and want to provide their guests with a vacation home that you will want to return to again and again. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND Wind Chimes and didn’t want to leave . . . Can’t wait for our next visit!!

Although we are considered a 'one-back' we are still on the sand. The beach past the cottage in front. is only 80 feet from our step. The cottages are staggered and no cottage next door, allowing for huge ocean views.
