Overview

Hatteras Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bedroom 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2 Adults 1 child)

Spend some time in our little slice of paradise, 'Quality Time' and experience the wonders of Cape Hatteras at your doorstep. Relax on our roof top deck under the brightest stars you will ever see or take a sunrise walk and watch the dolphins swim in the surf.

Quality Time is a free standing Studio on stilts with parking underneath providing you a private hide-a-way on the beach. Our queen size Sleep Number Bed will ensure you get a good nights sleep and if you have a small child or a buddy along, the sofa bed is comfy too. We provide premium bedding for your comfort. Sheets, pillows, comforters.

Dan and I love to cook so the kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals or entertain. The local restaurants are wonderful too with fresh local seafood. There are charcoal grills and picnic tables outside for the grill masters among you.

We provide 2 beach Chairs, 2 Umbrellas and 2 Boogie Boards for your enjoyment. There are rental shops nearby if you would like to rent bikes or kayaks etc.

QT is small so we have done everything to utilize the space as efficiently and artistically as possible. It's very cheerful, clean and well, it's just beachy. We've had lots of honeymooners and many repeat visitors over the years to rave reviews. We think you will be very happy at Quality Time.

About Susan and Dan Beard

I have family in Hatteras and have been going to Hatteras since I was a small child. My husband Dan was raised on a finger lake in NY so we both have a love of the water.

We rented a Cabana in the summer of 2006 and were hooked. We had 4 units filled with family and friends and enjoyed the privacy of the individual units over the big beach houses we had rented before. We bought #32 on my birthday later that same year.

We feel that time with family and friends is so important and when you combine that with sunny skies and endless beaches the name Quality Time just fits.

Dan and I love fishing and Hatteras offers a of variety of options. Surf casting from the beach has provided many lunches of Trout, Pompano, Puppy Drum, Flounder etc. There are head boats and charters a plenty. Our favorite is the Stormy Petrel. It is huge and can take the whole family out deep sea fishing.

Susan and Dan Beard purchased this studio in 2006

Why Susan and Dan Beard chose Cape Hatteras

Dan proposed to me on one knee at the top of Hatteras Lighthouse in 1997 before it was moved. This area holds so many special memories for us and we hope your time here will enrich your lives as much as it has ours.

What makes this studio unique

Driving on the beach is too much fun!! It's a must do if you have a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Beach combing, horseback riding on the beach, kite surfing, kayaking, did i mention driving on the beach?? Fishing, driving on the beach and camp fires require permits so please follow the local laws governing these activities.

Nice little cabana

  • 4 of 5

Good experience, good location, short walk to the beach! I was hoping for a ocean view from the rooftop deck, but it was still nice. Room was clean and well equipped but the under- sink lightening didn't work and outside light didn't work, other than that it was great!

beautiful, comfortable, a perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This cabana was absolutely amazing!! It is beautifully furnished and the perfect size! My husband and I especially enjoyed the three decks for viewing the ocean and meals! This cabanas also directly next to the beach which made our stay even more amazing! Susan and Dan were also amazing at communicating with us and answering any questions we had immediately. The location is also amazing for sightseeing and amazing food! We could not have asked for a better honeymoon thank you Susan and Dan!!

Perfect for a couple's getaway

  • 4 of 5

The studio was quaint, clean and adorably decorated. The refrigerator was surprisingly bigger than we thought. The owners left an information book that was helpful. The beach was a short walk across the parking lot. The owners were a pleasure to work with and readily available when we had questions.

Keep in mind that it is a studio. It is small but comfortable.

Cozy and inviting!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect stay at the beach. Sue was very responsive and a great help with all our questions. We'd come back here again and again if we can! The cabana has seriously everything that you need. We ate out only twice because so many of our meals were prepared perfectly in the kitchen here. Thanks Sue and Dan for having a great retreat!
