COZY COTTAGE, STEPS TO THE BEACH, YOUR PERFECT ISLAND VACATION

Hatteras Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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

Hatteras Holiday is located in picturesque Hatteras Village. This 2 bedroom 2 bath cottage is just steps from the beach. You can park your car, relax, and begin to enjoy island living. Ride your bike or walk to artisan shops, art galleries, marinas, restaurants, and the Ocracoke Ferry Landing.

Hatteras Holiday is perfect for a couple or a small family. Everything you need for your vacation is here. Two lots back from the ocean, the beach is just steps away across a community boardwalk. You can walk for hours on our beautiful, unspoiled beaches or you can just relax under your umbrella and read that book you’ve been saving for the beach. Water sports enthusiasts can kiteboard, kayak, windsurf, or even parasail.

Fishermen can fish from the surf or charter a day trip at one of the marinas. There is a lighted fish cleaning table for preparing your catch for dinner. A locked storage area under the house makes it easy for you to stow your boogie boards, kites, or fishing gear. Chairs, beach umbrellas, and sandcastle building toys are provided for you.

Our home is nicely furnished and includes a roomy combined living/dining area. A well equipped modern kitchen has a large refrigerator with an icemaker, a microwave, and a dishwasher. The laundry is a separate room adjacent to the living area.

The screened porch off the kitchen, through sliding glass doors, is popular with all our guests. There is a big table and chairs on the screened porch that provides a space for outdoor dining .

Well furnished outdoor decks are comfortable for sunbathers and sunsets.

For entertainment, there are three televisions and DVD players, and a video library with a nice variety of movies. There is also a stereo system and an Ipod docking station. Charter Cable, high speed Internet, and WiFi are all included.

The two bedrooms are comfortable with good quality bedding. One has a queen size bed and the other has a full size platform bed with a memory foam mattress and twin beds with new mattresses. All beds have mattress pads, pillows and quilts.

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

After Hurricane Isabel we decided to buy a rental property. Hatteras Holiday was available and we were able to purchase it, known then as Shellfinder. 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.

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.

UNFORGETABLE VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Initially when viewing vacation options, my desire was to stay on Ocracoke Island. After that plan fell through, I opted to stay at Hatteras and I am so very glad I did. The Hatteras Holiday Cottage we rented was way more than I could have ever hoped for. The cottage was wonderful and included everything that we were needing to enjoy our vacation. The cottage was clean and very well cared for. The evenings were very quiet and when sitting out on the deck you could listen to the ocean as it crashed on the beach. We were just a couple minutes walk to the beach in one direction and a handful of minutes from the Sound side in the opposite direction. We were close enough to walk or ride bicycles to anywhere we were wanting to go including the ferry to Ocracoke.As photographers we found the sunrises on the Atlantic side to be spectacular and the sunsets on the Sound side to be splendid. We got wonderful shots of boats coming into Teaches Lair with a beautiful sunset in the background. I would definitely recommend this rental to my family and friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you for you positive response.
Pat and I try to keep Hatteras Holiday up to date and as complete as we possibly can. With the help of Shore Details and their conscientious cleaning staff, Hatteras Holiday is clean and well cared for. Our renters share a large part of the praise, for they seem to leave the cottage as well cared for as they found it and we thank them very much for that.
We are glad that you found the neighborhood to be quiet and that the you were able to enjoy the sounds of the sea and exceptional views, this really completes the experience of a Hatteras vacation. Being well located in relation to the beach and village life, Hatteras Holiday, does allow you to spend your time on vacation and not in endless travel to local places of interest and sightseeing.
Thank you again for staying with us at Hatteras Holiday.

GREAT LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
Perfect location for a weekend away with my husband. He loved fishing on the beach and he didn't have far to walk with all his gear. We enjoyed using the bikes as well to explore Hatteras.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed the short walk to the beach, the fishing and the bikes, all good. The bikes do give an extra window to Hatteras Village and its interesting little streets and views that you may miss in a drive through by car.

Very clean, and bright, Quiet too! Screened porch area was used for dining and conversing. Cozy and convienient to local attractions and beach. You can have lots of fun here, we particulary made a game of the road next street over...occupant vs turnarounder! ( you have to stay here to understand!) Burris Market (Red&White) provided all we needed food and beverage wise (at a cost that was not unbearible). So you have all you need close by for a great vacation!
