INVITING OCEANFRONT STUDIO JUST STEPS AWAY FROM THE WATER

Hatteras Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bedroom + Convertible sofa bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2 Adults 1 child)

Spend some time in our little slice of paradise, 'Quality Time' and experience the wonders of Cape Hatteras at your doorstep. Relax on our roof top deck under the brightest stars you will ever see or take a sunrise walk and watch the dolphins swim in the surf.

Quality Time is a free standing Studio on stilts with parking underneath providing you a private hide-a-way on the beach. Our queen size Sleep Number Bed will ensure you get a good nights sleep and if you have a small child or a buddy along, the sofa bed is comfy too.

Dan and I love to cook so the kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals or entertain. The local restaurants are wonderful too with fresh local seafood.

There are charcoal grills and picnic tables outside for the grill masters among you.

QT is small so we have done everything to utilize the space as efficiently and artistically as possible. It's very cheerful, clean and well, it's just beachy. We've had lots of honeymooners and many repeat visitors over the years to rave reviews. We think you will be very happy at Quality Time.

I have family in Hatteras and have been going to Hatteras since I was a small child. My husband Dan was raised on a finger lake in NY so we both have a love of the water.

We stayed at the Cabanas in the summer of 2006 and were hooked. We had 4 units filled with family and friends and enjoyed the privacy of the individual units over the big beach houses we had rented before. We bought #32 on my birthday later that same year.

We feel that time with family and friends is so important and when you combine that with sunny skies and endless beaches the name Quality Time just fits.

Dan and I love fishing and Hatteras offers a of variety of options. Surf casting from the beach has provided many lunches of Trout, Pompano, Puppy Drum, Flounder etc. There are head boats and charters a plenty. Our favorite is the Stormy Petrel. It is huge and can take the whole family out deep sea fishing.

Susan and Dan Beard purchased this studio in 2006

Dan proposed to me on one knee at the top of Hatteras Lighthouse in 1997 before it was moved. This area holds so many special memories for us and we hope your time here will enrich your lives as much as it has ours.

Driving on the beach is too much fun!! It's a must do if you have a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Beach combing, horseback riding on the beach, kite surfing, kayaking, did i mention driving on the beach?? Fishing, driving on the beach and camp fires require permits so please follow the local laws governing these activities.

HAD A WONDERFUL TIME AT QUALITY TIME!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed the week of 6/15-6/22/14. Quality Time did not disappoint. It truly has everything you'll need to live away from home for a week. The place was very neat, clean, and space efficient. We even had room for a pack-n-play for our 14 month old. The key-less entry is a great feature so you don't have to keep track of a key. The owners have beach chairs and camp chairs on site but they've seen better days. My guess is improper care from previous renters so bring your own to ensure no problems. They have a small cooler for keeping bait if you're into fishing. We got a look into a couple other cabanas and Quality Time is definitely more contemporary than most. There was a fire permit form on the counter when we arrived so we didn't have to go to the lighthouse to obtain one, that was nice.

There are a couple things that we hope the owners would resolve before our NEXT stay (yes, we will be repeat customers). The bathroom door didn't latch (cabana has settled perhaps?). No big deal but it was annoying with a 14 month old constantly exploring. It would also be nice to have a short water hose attached to the outside spigot for cleaning off sandy umbrellas, chairs, etc. I used the neighboring cabana's hose for this.

Like I said, those are just minor things that wouldn't deter us from staying again. I spoke to the owners via email a few times and they were prompt, detailed, and courteous in their responses.

Owner's Response: Donnie,

We are happy you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for letting us know about the bathroom door. We try very hard to keep the unit comfortable, clean and trouble free. We will have it taken care of as soon as possible. Also, the chairs last much longer if they are rinsed after each use. We will replace those as well. We do try to keep a hose on the spigot and will purchase another. We have a few stolen each year. It always good to hear feedback and it helps us keep everything nice for our renters.

Enjoy the rest of your summer,
Susan and Dan

VERY HAPPY WITH OUR STAY

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay at this property. It was well-kept, extremely clean, and just as the owners described. Susan was very prompt in replying to inquiries about the stay.
Staying during the off-season was actually nice, as the beaches and villages were quiet. Of course many of the restaurants are seasonal, but we still found some that were open and delicious. There are a couple grocery stores closeby as well.
My husband and I stayed with our baby and the space was just sufficient while comfortable. Very short walk to the beach. Would definitely recommend!

OUTSTANDING!

  • 5 of 5
What a gem! This charming studio was perfect! I'm kind of picky about cleanliness . . . and Quality Time was spotless. I like to read and to sew, and appreciated the good lighting and comfortable furniture. And I like to be outside, so I also loved the sizable covered deck and upper-level viewing deck. The cabana is so well-equipped! The kitchen had everything I needed for a week of cooking. Cleaning supplies had also been thoughtfully provided. And the location is great. Convenient to shopping and the ferry, but in a quiet part of Hatteras, and less than 200 steps from the beautiful beach. And isn't that what we all want when we visit the Outer Banks? Endless sky, sea, birds, dolphins and beach-combing. As nice as the studio is, the hospitality was equally great. Susan's service staff resolved a maintenance issue in less than an hour. A wonderful place, a wonderful hostess!

PERFECT GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
My fiancé and I wanted a nice, quiet, secluded place to spend New Year's and that's just what we got. We found our Cabana to be very clean, well-stocked with all the necessities (as we love to cook), and quite comfortable. Even though many nearby businesses were closed because it was the off season, we still found a couple of great local seafood markets, restaurants, and grocery stores all within a short drive. Susan was great to deal with and made the entire process very easy. We plan on returning the first chance we get. Thanks!!

OUR 3 DAY STAY

  • 4 of 5
The owner was very helpful with all of our questions. The unit was decorated very nicely and was equipped with all the necessities of home. The unit itself is small but a great place for a couple to stay. For a Great Flounder or crab cake sandwich with fries the Hatterasman is the place to go, about 1/2 mile away heading to the ferry on the left.
