About Bill and Angie Rapant

Angie & Bill Rapant built 'Papillon' as a Hatteras Island retreat in 2002. They own and operate the Cape Pines Motel in Buxton, NC, a short drive from Avon. Not satisfied with the management of their vacation rental home, they decided to rent the house directly with guests as a means of providing better rental prices for guests, and for ensuring a truly comfortable stay for all guests. With over 20 years of 4 & 5 Star hotel experience, the Rapants are truly dedicated to making guests feel at home at their home on the Outer Banks.

Bill and Angie Rapant purchased this house in 2002

Why Bill and Angie Rapant chose Cape Hatteras

Angie & Bill fell in love with the quaint town of Avon on Hatteras Island. The natural beauty of the island has made this a special place for them. With over 20 years of 4 & 5 Star hotel experience, Angie & Bill are pleased to accommodate families in their special home in Avon on Hatteras Island.

What makes this house unique

Unlike so many of the houses on Hatteras Island, this home is meticulously maintained. Angie & Bill enjoy making this home available to guests from near and far. You will be amazed at the cleanliness of this home, and you will truly feel at home. Avon is close to the kiteboarding and windsurfing areas in both Rodanthe and Avon/Buxton.

Very accommodating!!

  • 5 of 5

The Papillon is a wonderful home!!! The house comes with everything you'd need to make it feel like a home away from home. I loved being able to look out from the third deck and seeing the ocean. There were plenty of shops that were within walking distance, along with a DQ right across the street which was great for those hot summer nights. If you are looking for an awesome getaway then you should definitely choose this house! Thank you Bill and Angie!!

Owner's Response: We are glad that our cottage provides comfort and convenience to the beach, shops and restaurants in the area. Our visitors always find the house to be much more beautiful than they expected and we are very proud that hundreds of people who have stayed at Papillon went home with wonderful memories.

Exceptionally clean; extremely accommodating

  • 5 of 5

Papillon is a clean, very well equipped home that is perfect for all members of the family. The home has something for everyone to relax and have fun. With a very short walk to the beach (and no tall dunes to hike up), you can't go wrong by choosing Papillon for your next stay in Avon. I have vacationed on Hatteras Island every year of my life and have never felt more at home than I have at this home. Additionally, the owners are friendly, caring, and accommodating.

Thank you, Bill and Angie! Our winter stay made us love our favorite place on Earth even more! We will most definitely be back to your home soon. Until next time... :)

Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The Papillon was clean, had everything we needed for a relaxing beach week exploring the southern outer banks. Good location to travel "to the end of the road" and up to Roanoke Island. Easy access to a beautiful beach. Quiet neighborhood.

Miller Family 2012 Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Papillon was amazing! Great views, great house, great location! The welcoming atmosphere plus the quality of the accommodation made this a rental we plan to use again. Thank you Bill and Angie for making our vacation a truly remarkable experience!

We had more than enough space for 12 people plus 2 dogs. The cleanliness of the house was awesome and the location was just a few hundred yards from the beach. Also a plus is the short walking distance to Dairy Queen and a few local restaurants.

Thank you again and we highly recommend Papillon to anyone who wants a top-notch outer banks experience.
