This is our vacation house and we are here every year during Spring, Summer, and Fall. Therefore, the condition of everything in the house is constantly maintained in line with our personal standards so we can continually assure our guests a high level of satisfaction. From our own rental experiences we have concluded that how frequently an owner occupies the property has as much to do with its condition as any other single factor. Perhaps this is one reason why The Hatteras Beachhouse has been occupied 95-100% over the five months of May through September for as long as we have made it available to renters.
We can offer a family a quality beach experience for a very reasonable price and position you closer to the ocean than most other houses, even those that are more expensive. Don't be fooled by other houses that advertise 'short walk to beach'. In one minute from our driveway you cross the dune on a smooth boardwalk, and there you are - at the beach. Ten minutes walking in the other direction brings you to the Ocracoke ferry, a nautical museum, a variety of retail shops, two marinas where you can see the catch of the day, and several fine restaurants. Walking a few minutes more places you in the center of the village with more restaurants and retail shops, a pharmacy, medical building, grocery store, coffee shop, a public library (with free internet access), and an exceptional photographic gallery.
Our exceptional beaches and clean waters are praised by USA Today magazine and ranked 4th in U.S. by a prestigious coastal research center in Florida. Visitors also enjoy the quaint island village of Ocracoke (free car ferry around the corner of our street), a variety of fishing experiences, biking and kayaking (rentals in the village), visiting the historic Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, and enjoying the variety of shore birds seen throughout the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. Children also enjoy the varied summer programs offered by the National Park rangers in the area.
We offer a fully equipped and newly renovated kitchen and adjoining dining area for six guests. The living room is open to both of these areas, with large picture windows looking out over natural vegetation between our furnished sun deck and the beach. The master bedroom (queen) has its own bath, and the two other bedrooms (twin beds in each) share a full bath. All bedrooms have ceiling fans, as does the great room. and the house is also centrally air conditioned. With your laptop computer and our WI-FI connection, high speed internet access is available. Under the house is an enclosed outdoor shower, a lighted fish cleaning table, and a double wide concrete driveway which can accommodate a boat and several cars.
Bed linen service is available, and a well behaved pet (1 dog only) is welcome in the house - both at an additional charge (see Rates).
