Overview

Rodanthe House Rental Photos and Description

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

OCEAN VIEWS AND ACCESS WILL RIVAL ANY SEMI-OCEANFRONT ON THE EAST COAST

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.

YOU ASKED WE LISTENED: NOW WITH ESPN and ESPN2

PROFESSIONALLY LAUNDERED LINENS ON OUR BEDS, NO EXTRA CHARGE.

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.

Wow !

  • 5 of 5

We just had the most awesome week at Isolation ! The house was very clean when we arrived, and you can't beat the location. We were a group of 8 (6 adults and 2 kids) and it was perfect, we had of lot of space. The beach is really close, 1 minute and you're there. The house is just... amazing ! It's the perfect summer vacation rental. Hope to come back anytime soon !

Beautiful location; lovely home

  • 4 of 5

Just what we wanted - right on the ocean, lots of rooms for children and grandchildren, beautiful weather, terrific views from all the balconies, and even Manta rays breaching and swimming close to shore for our viewing pleasure! John was gracious in making a few unfortunate situations better (refrigerator was not working and the road to the house was flooded). We did have some difficulties with parking cars- none of our children wanted to drive over the flooded road to the house after we did so and the water was over our tires; we were afraid it would damage the cars. They ended up parking 2 miles away at the realty company.

I would go back again in a heartbeat if the road was taken care of. It remained flooded our entire visit.

Perfect July 4th Week

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property in a fabulous location. Our families, 6 adults and 7 kids, thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Isolation. The house was much more spacious than the photos make it appear. We all had our own space but loved to congregate upstairs with the kitchen, living room and huge deck. We never had the need to contact the mgt company or the owner. Everything was clean and ready for us on time.

We all agreed that spending the week in Rodanthe was much better than battling the crowds up north in Nags Head and Kitty Hawk. The beach fires at night, nearly private beach and absolutely gorgeous views will have us back again.

Best Ocean View!

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for opening your home! What a wonderful time we had there at the Outer Banks! This is our 3rd time to the OBX and we always pick a different town to explore. Home felt very private, but was just an easy stroll up the beach to the pier or ice cream shop. Rain and cold weather most of the week we were there 4/30-5/7. But comfortable furnishings, pool table, hot tub, games, and books provided in the home made enjoyable family time in the home. We taught the kids to play PIT and it was a HUGE hit! Was extremely pleased with Shore Details, the cleaning, maintenance, and management company. We had a few little minor issues with water, lights, and wifi. Both times we called, they were at the home within the hour and had us taken care of! Those were minor issues and did not bother us. However the reason I gave a 4 star was because of all the pet hair! We chose a non-pet friendly home on purpose, so we didn't have to deal with pet hair and dander... But it was honestly everywhere! Other then that it was was a wonderful home and and great time to catch up on family time! Again thank you for sharing your home!! :)

Satisfied Michigan Visitor

  • 5 of 5

I want to start by saying the owner John was not only informative, he answered inquiries immediately and was extremely helpful and a great communicator. That is very reassuring when traveling to an area you are not familiar with and finding out ahead of time what to expect. THANK YOU JOHN! One of my biggest concerns is that the home is extremely clean. It was. The other concern is that it is located in a safe area. It was. The rest was a bonus.

The view was spectacular. The privacy was just what I wanted for this trip. There are a mass of beautiful homes in the Outerbanks, most of which are located in subdivisions (not appealing where I am concerned). John's home was warm and inviting, very private and very perfect for our particular needs. The name Isolation fits it to a tee.

A couple of my family members joined us for a few days and loved the house and location as well.

I read a couple of other review and someone mentioned that the carpets were stained. When we arrived everything was cleaned and since it's a rental you have to expect the carpets can have an occasional stain since they cannot be steamed cleaned after every visitor. Being a germaphobe myself, the condition of the carpets did not bother me in the least. They were well vacuumed and the house IS ON THE BEACH! There wasn't a bug in sight inside the home. I wish all the VRBO rentals we've occupied were as clean. The cupboards were immaculate and so was the refrigerator, oven and microwave as well as the bathroom facilities and bedding.

Yes, I would definitely love to return to Isolation. Thank you again, John for being so kind and helpful.

Owner's Response: Judy, Thank you for taking the time to post your review. I'm very glad you enjoyed your stay, and that the house was clean and comfortable. We do have a fantastic location right on the beach and the ocean and sound views are amazing. We have always believed that we should appoint the house with the type of furnishings and amenities that we would like to have if we were going to stay there. I'm glad you found them comfortable during your stay. This is our first year using Shore Details to clean and maintain our house, and they have done a fantastic job keeping the house clean and in top shape. Thanks again for your kind words, and I hope you choose to visit Isolation Beach House again in the future.
