Rodanthe Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms - 1 full bath. Nice for the Family or Fishing Friends - Internet

Address: 24233 Atlantic Dr., Rodanthe, NC 27968. A great cottage for a budget vacation on Hatteras Island, and just 500' from the Rodanthe Fishing Pier and beach. Completely remodeled in 2008/09 and updated each year, and new deck put on in 2016. This Saturday to Saturday rental cottage provides you with relaxing comfort. The three bedrooms are Queen, Full and Bunk. It's fully equipped kitchen is a plus to preparing those home cooked meals!

A small lake behind the cottage provides great practice for honing one's fishing skills before heading for the 'big water'. Yes, there are good sized fish in it! Renting the cottage also comes with a free fishing and/or sightseeing pass to the Rodanthe Fishing Pier for up to 6 persons staying in the cottage.

Rodanthe is central to all points of interest on the outer banks and provides easy access to the many wonders of the Islands, including the Wright Brothers Museum in Kill Devil Hills; the Aquarium in Manteo; 5 Lighthouses located at various points of the Outer Banks, and Hatteras Village where one can ride the free car ferry to Ocracoke Island to enjoy its many historical sights and its quaint village. Rodanthe has bicycle, kayak and sailboat rentals as well as several local fishing stores and surf shops.

Then, after a fun filled OBX day, relax in the great 6-person hot tub where you can enjoy the sound of the surf breaking onto the beach.

About Larry or Janet Jennings, owners

We are a married retired couple who love the ocean. We purchased our first rental property on Hatteras Island in 2001, and this one in 2004. Lived in Rodanthe for 3 years (2006-2009), and became investors in other rental properties. We learned from our own renting experiences that what's most important to renters is cleanliness, quality furnishings, well equipped kitchen, and most of all honesty on the part of the owners! We make every effort to provide all of these, and the guest reviews herein confirms this! We will always provide the very best to our guests!

Larry or Janet Jennings, owners purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Larry or Janet Jennings, owners chose Cape Hatteras

It's an older beach box type home, but well decorated and maintained. We see it as a cozy warm home away from home, and our guests apparently agree as it has a 5 star rating by all that have submitted reviews.

What makes this cottage unique

Close to the beach & fishing pier (523 feet). Comes with a free fishing pass to the pier for up to 6 persons staying in cottage. Has great 6 person hot tub.

Wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful cottage. We like it so much we have stayed there twice this year. The cottage is very clean and well kept. It is just as you see it in the picture . It comes with a washer/dryer, fully furnished kitchen, and great heating/air system. There is a fishing pond out back, it is just a short walk to the pier/beach, and comes with free fishing passes to the pier. Located around this cottage is shopping, dinning, and attractions for all ages. The owners are just wonderful to work with and even called us to make sure our stay was going well. This rental is worth every penny.

Owner's Response: Dear Larry and Kellie: We truly appreciate your generous comments on Cottage By The Pier! There's really nothing to add as you've covered it more thoroughly and said it much better than we could have were we posting it for rent on a website or in a newspaper! Thank you, also, for you kind words of my wife and I. Our continuing goal is to always provide our guests with comfort and relaxation away from home as that's what we believe "vacation" means! It is comments such as your that makes it all worthwhile! Larry and Janet

Our experience at Cottage By The Pier was amazing! As soon as my husband and I walked in, it felt like home. The house was so clean and the deco so warm and inviting. We brought our dogs Rango and Dexter and this was Dexter's (our Golden Retriever) first time at the beach. The dogs had a blast, we had a blast, running around most of the day then coming back to the cozy little cottage to relax and rest for the evening for our next day adventures :) Thank you so much Larry and Janet for allowing us and our boys to enjoy your gem of a home! I was so sad to leave! Looking forward to making this a yearly tradition :)

Owner's Response: Dear Lindsey: We are so glad you folks and your canine boys, Rango and Dexter enjoyed vacationing at the beach and our cottage added to your comfort. We are deeply committed to providing both a clean and well maintained home away from home for our guests, and we will continue to do so. At the same time, we very much appreciate our guests who, like you, do their part by leaving the cottage clean and damage free when they depart. We look forward to serving you again! Sincerely, Larry and Janet

wonderful once again

  • 5 of 5

Once again we have had such a wonderful time and experience at CBTP (September-2016). It is such a great location to be away from it all and really enjoy time with the family. I loved the new upgrades (porch, hot tub screen, outdoor shower, porch furniture) and it really shows how much Larry and Janet put in to it. I always hate leaving a vacation, but this little house seems to make me cry when I have to leave. Thank you again to the Jennings for allowing us to rent from you. We absolutely loved our vacation and I am already looking forward to hopefully another trip next year. Thanks guys!!!

Owner's Response: Dear Stacey: Thank you so much for your kind and generous review! We're so glad the cottage met your needs and you took note of the upgrades. Having ourselves rented beach homes in years past we learned quickly the difference between a well maintained home and one that is not. So when we decided to buy rental property back in 2001, it was with the goal to provide clean and well maintained accommodations. Your review and those of so many wonderful guests before you are evidence that our efforts are appreciated, and we shall continue providing the best home away from home! We look forward to seeing you on your next visit to Hatteras Island! Larry and Janet J.

Great! Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time as always (our third stay)! The cottage was clean and fresh when we arrived, and we enjoyed fishing off the Rodanthe Pier (such a wonderful savings not to have to pay for pier privileges daily). Larry has always answered my inquiries promptly and provided the information needed for us to have a great vacation in a terrific location. Thanks! Looking forward to doing it again sometime soon!

Owner's Response: Dear Janet: We deeply appreciate your kind review on your third stay in our cottage. As always your more than generous. But this time we want those who read our response to know what wonderful guests you and your family are. The lady that inspects and sanitizes the cottage when guests depart told us to convey her appreciation to you for leaving the cottage exceptionally clean and orderly! We join her in saying "thank you and your family" for taking such good care of the cottage! For those reading this, we wish to share with you our policy regarding guests that leave the cottage clean and in good order. Those doing so receive a 10% discount up to $100 on the listed rental rate on future bookings. Just our way of saying "thank you" for caring! Janet, we look forward to your staying with us for many years to come! With kindest regards, we are Larry and Janet J.
