About John or Pat Rice

Hatteras Island is home to us. We are retired schoolteachers from Ohio who have vacationed here for 45 years. When we had the opportunity we built a home and moved here. After ten years, we still love this island we call home and look forward to many years of happy island living.

John or Pat Rice purchased this cottage in 2004

Why John or Pat Rice chose Hatteras

After Hurricane Isabel we decided to buy a rental property by the beach. Hatteras Holiday was available and we were able to purchase it, known then as Shell-finder. We live in Buxton and had always vacationed in Frisco, so Hatteras, only ten miles away, was a learning experience for us. We have learned to love Hatteras and spend many days at Hatteras Holiday. Our children and grandchildren think of our cottage as their vacation home. The neighborhood is wonderful, made up of vacationers and summer residents. It is safe, quiet, and welcoming, a great place for anyone who wants to get away from hectic every day life and relax.

What makes this cottage unique

Hatteras is a village, home to many of our local people and charter boat families. There is a grocery store, a hardware, good restaurants, a library, a museum, the Coast Guard base, great marinas, and quiet island living. You can walk to everything in Hatteras or you can ride your bike anywhere. If you like more excitement, you can drive an hour to Nags Head for shopping and golf. If you want to step back in time, you can take the free ferry to Ocracoke and spend the day.

an extra summer

  • 5 of 5
Our recent stay at Hatteras Village was wonderful. We celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary in this cozy condo so near the beach. It had everything we needed to relax and extend our summer. The screened in porch allowed a cool breeze at night and was a great place for games or cards. The weather was perfect, especially the ocean! Sunny and warm. It was nice to ride bikes around town that were included in the shed. The added touch of a washer and drier was helpful. We enjoyed being so close to the ferry. The fudge at the general store is the best! The cottage was even nicer than the pictures on the web. Thank you for letting us stay at your place. We were impressed on the organization and helpfulness of the owners. We would love to return next year!

Cozy and quiet location

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time staying this far down on the island. We loved the location. The cottage was plenty of room for us and our dogs and it was very well kept. It was great not having to pack and travel with beach chairs, umbrellas and boogie boards, they are all there waiting for you even beach towels! The beach is steps away, shopping is near by. If you are looking for a great get away location to just enjoy the beach and family time, this is the place! We will be back and will recommend to many friends and family who vacation here.

Location, location, location!!

  • 5 of 5
My two sisters-in-law spent a wonderful week at this cozy cottage literally just steps away from a beautiful sandy beach. We were provided with chairs, umbrellas, bikes and bugie boards which made it soooo much easier than having to pack or rent all that stuff! The accommodations were great and we felt right at home the minute we walked in. I would recommend this beautiful place to anyone needing a 2 bedroom unit.

Still Dreaming of our Hatteras Holiday

  • 5 of 5
Our family loved this clean, well-equipped cottage that makes you feel right at home when you walk in the door. We found everything in excellent working order and enjoyed the bike, too. The photos accurately reflect the cottage, and the owners gave quick responses. I would recommend this to families, couples, or anyone seeking some solitude, while still being near a village with good restaurants, and of course the wild and beautiful ocean nearby. I still visualize it and hear the whistling wind while wishing I was there.
