About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 11)


Semi-Oceanfront doesn't get any better than in Rodanthe, Hatteras Island, Outer Banks. Our home, 'Isolation', is one of the best. Almost beachfront, we are only 50 feet to the beach with fabulous ocean and sound views and convenient access to both.

Hatteras Island is very narrow, and nowhere is it more narrow than Rodanthe. In addition to our ocean views, we have better sound views than some sound-side properties.

IGNITE your senses on sounds of the surf, delicious unobstructed ocean views and sunsets over the sound. With open space on three sides, you will also enjoy privacy rarely found at the beach. Spend your nights in Rodanthe at Isolation.

Stay longer –– we enjoy the FASTEST wireless internet on the island.



This 6 year young home was custom built with thoughtful features to help you maximize your comfort and enjoyment. Its amenities include: living room with surround sound, wii, large screen tv, multiple decks, hot tub, a game room with pool table and wet bar and below-deck – a large shower/changing room, and all you need to clean and stow your surfing/wind gear.

Your family will not be disappointed here! VIEW OUR PHOTOS - YOU CAN ALMOST HEAR THE SURF.

Our Beach House name “Isolation”was chosen by the previous owner. Our first thought was to change the name, it didn’t seem welcoming enough. Then we read the history of Hatteras Island and spent some time thinking about the name, “Isolation”, that the previous owners chose.

When reading the history of Hatteras Island the word isolation jumps from the pages several times. There was no paved road on Hatteras until 1952 – prior to that, islanders drove down the sand trails, or on the beach. Until the Herbert C. Bonner Bridge was completed in 1963, the only way onto the island was by water. The islanders were truly isolated.

Our home sits somewhat isolated toward the end of a dirt road, with open lots on either side. This gives us fabulous views, even with a shorter home right in front of us. Hatteras Island homes appear relatively isolated from each other, compared to cramped neighborhoods in any other coastal vacation town. This is because only 12% of the land is built-up with most of the ground being held as a National Preserve.

We feel the name “Isolation” has a certain dignity, given the island's history, and Isolation's unique site in Rodanthe.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This was our first time to rent a home as we usually rent condos, and we were extremely pleased. What we all loved most were the views of the oceans, even though this was technically semi-oceanfront. We were so close to the water, and could see the ocean from every room. There were eight of us in our party, and we all had plenty of room and all the privacy we could ask for. Although the weather was a bit chilly while we were there, we never lacked for things to do, and still managed to walk on the beach daily. The home was well stocked, and we were able to cook meals with no trouble at all. The dining table was big enough for all of us to sit down and enjoy our meals, and again, the views were priceless. We loved everything about this house, and would love to rent it again.

We love this place.

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at Isolation. We love this place, just isolated enough. We were treated to a buck deer that came to graze in the lands behind the house. We enjoyed the actions of the cat colony and the raccoons. We even saw dolphins out in the water feeding. The walk to the beach is just long enough and of course if sand isn't your thing, you can just sit on the deck and enjoy the view. There was a couple of down sides---dishwasher wasn't usedful, needed a new door gasket and a couple of the TV's in some of the bedrooms didn't work but the weather was great, the sunrise and sets were beautiful and we hope to return sometime.

Spacious home so close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

Lovely home was perfect for our family of six. The house is one dune away from the beach. All bedrooms had a deck off them. We enjoyed our stay and definitely want to return. We enjoyed the quiet atmosphere of Rodanthe but it is still close to larger cities. The beach was perfect with great shell collecting opportunities. Our family loved the pool table and hot tub.

Restorative & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

A week at the beach in a house named Isolation - a recipe for rest, relaxation, and restoration! Our family of 11 (9 adults, 2 babies) spent a wonderful week playing in the sand and surf, walking the beach, exploring nearby Hatteras and Bodie Island lighthouses, as well as simply sitting on the decks of the house watching the ocean. The layout of the house accommodated our family well with ample space to be together or to be alone. We enjoyed the hot tub, the pool table, and gathering around the dining table for dinner every night. The kitchen was well stocked to handle our family's cooking rotation. Having the two small refrigerators downstairs was very helpful for keeping beverages chilled without overloading the kitchen fridge. In short, we loved it!

Very comfortable house, easy beach access, quite and secluded.

  • 3 of 5

I think it's time for a refresh of the house. With the exposure to the salty atmosphere and heavy rental use this house is showing signs of wear and tear. All exterior hardware needs to be replaced, all exterior electrical switches need to be replaced, several decking boards were loose, Master bath lavatory and kitchen sink had significant water drips ( would not shutoff completely), gravel drive way could use some additional material (huge ruts) had to be navigated when parking, having an electronic lock on the front door and no other keys defeats the purpose of the rear steps and makes trips to the beach seem odd because you must teach everybody how to operate the front lock set. Overall the house was. comfortable and is a really nice location with easy beach access. However, at these rates I expect the general maintenance to be in better condition.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to review the property and make suggestions for improvement. I have addressed the leaking faucets, loose boards, and driveway issue. If you have problems during your stay please contact our maintenance company right away. Contact information is contained in your welcome letter and posted in the house. They are very responsive and will address any maintenance issue quickly. We do update out door hardware on a regular basis, but some corrosion will always be present due to our proximity to the ocean. It is also the reason that keyless entry systems don't work on the ocean side of the house. When we visit the house we access the beach from the rear stairs and leave the door unlocked. We are located in a very private and safe location so locking the doors while you are on the beach is not necessary. I'm glad you enjoyed you otherwise enjoyed your stay. The house is very nicely appointed and is only steps away from the beach.
