About Seasound Motel

Many generations have passed since the first O'Neal was shipwrecked on Hatteras Island. The O'Neals once owned a large strip of land, in Rodanthe, that went from ocean to sound. Over time the land was divided up and passed down from one generation to another. With each generation the lots were getting smaller, and some were sold outside of the family. Our goal was to try and save as much family land as we could. We bought the Sea Sound Motel, a small 11 room, family run motel in 1997. It is located on Sea Sound Road. It was part of the original O'Neal property. The opportunity to buy the lot that the Castle sits on came up and we were excited.

How we got the name, Castle by the Sea. We briefly owned a hotel in the mountains of North Carolina called the Castle Hotel. The buildings were actually built like castles. When we sold it, much to our surprise, the new owners tore it down. One day we were talking about the Castle Hotel and remembering the fun times there with our grandsons. When we said we were sad we sold it one of our grandsons spoke up and said build a castle in Rodanthe. After looking at many house plans, we decided the victorian house was the most similar house to a castle. The name came easy. CASTLE BY THE SEA

Seasound Motel purchased this house in 2007

Relaxing week at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the castle by the sea. Even though we came late in the season the weather was beautiful. The sunrise and sunset were spectacular. The house was spotless and very comfortable for two big families. We brought some firewood and used the outside firepit and really enjoyed it. The owner is friendly and easy to get in touch with. We can't wait to come back!

happy beach days

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. The owner was extremely easy to work with. We had a glitch with the WiFi and within the hour, the owner had a tech on the phone with us and fixed the issue. The pool was very clean and although shared was never busy and only a few steps from the house. The beach was lovely...weather awesome...All of us would return for another stay.

Our stay at the castle by the sea

  • 5 of 5

We booked our stay at this beautiful house and looked forward to our stay for quite some time. When we arrived it was so easy to get the key from next door and go right in. This house is even more beautiful in person. There was plenty of room for all of us, 5 kids and 6 adults. The house has everything you need to cook a great meal in the kitchen. The hot tub was a favorite for everybody and the children loved the pool! It is a short walk to the beach, and you couldn't ask for more privacy. There is also a grill for cooking and eating out on the deck. The views from the upper deck and the hot tub are amazing, we will definitely be back for another stay! Thank you so much to the friendliest of owners for our perfect stay!

Awesome House, Awesome Owners!

  • 5 of 5

We had a house full of adults and kiddos. Plenty of room for all our food, toys and us! The house was clean and gorgeous! Loved that the house provided linens and towels, plus laundry and dishwasher detergent. Another plus, was the house had plenty of spices available! It was very nice to not have to purchase all the spices to cook dinner.

The walk to the beach isn't bad at all. You can even drive up to the beach and drop off your beach gear and pick up your gear to not have to lug it all.

We had a storm towards the end of our stay which knocked out our power at 11pm. Hatteras Island had power crews there within hours and power was back on at 5am! Our AC upstairs wasn't working and the TV in the living room fried due to the storm. The owners had the AC fixed and a new tv before dinner time! Absolutely amazing!

Fit for a King!

  • 5 of 5

Walking into the Castle by the Sea was like walking right into the pictures. The house & location were exactly as described. The house was clean & well stocked. The southern hospitality was warm & welcoming. Owner very helpful & accommodating. I would recommend this property to anyone who loves the ocean, hates crowds and enjoys a short walk to the beach. While at the castle stop by Lisa's Pizza for a pie. You won't be sorry. Relaxing family vacation. Enchanted with the Castle by the Sea.

Map

The village of Rodanthe, with it's beautiful beaches and 'laid back' atmosphere, is centrally located on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. If you just want to relax, read a book and enjoy uncrowded beaches, Rodanthe is the place to be. There is great fishing by boat, from the surf or at the pier located 1/2 mile from Castle by the Sea. Rodanthe Watersports offers bike rentals, kayaks and jet ski's for rent. Rodanthe is a kiteboarding and windsurfing paradise. If you aren't experienced and want to learn the watersports, lessons are available in the area. We do have a variety of restaurants and shops in Rodanthe.

25 miles south, in Buxton, sits the tallest lighthouse in North America. Cape Hatteras lighthouse is open to climbing if you are up to the challenge. The view is well worth the trip to the top.

Another 15 minutes further south you will arrive at the free ferry to Ocracoke Island. It is the home of the oldest lighthouse still in operation. Visit the quaint village of Ocracoke and learn the history of pirates including the famous Black Beard himself.

There are many shops, restaurants, and other things to do along the way.

Traveling north from Rodanthe you will cross the bridge at Oregon Inlet with beautiful views of the ocean and sound. If looking for an off shore charter Oregon Inlet is the place to stop. You can stop by in the afternoon and watch the charter boats unload the catches of the day. If looking for a soundside charter we can refer you to someone locally.

Five minutes further, north, is the Bodie Island Lighthouse with its rich history.

When you get to the stoplight straight ahead is Nags Head or left on 64 takes you to Manteo.

In Manteo you can see the longest running outdoor drama, The Lost Colony. Manteo is the homeport of the Elizabeth II which is a full size replica of the first English ship to visit the new world. Don't forget to visit the Aquarium. Its full of information and fun for kids. Elizabethian Gardens is located beside the lost colony and well worth a visit for its beauty and splendor. Take a walk through the streets of Manteo and visit the waterfront and many shops and restaurants.

On your way into Nags Head you can stop by Jockey's Ridge, the tallest sand dune on the East Coast and watch the hang gliders or if your brave enough take a lesson and join in.

Further north into Kill Devil Hills is the Wright Brothers Memorial. A tribute to America's first heavier than air flight. It has a large and very interesting museum. Along the way you will see putt putt courses, golf courses and a movie theatre.
