Overview

Cape 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.

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!

Very Nice

Overall an excellent place to stay. My only issue was that the beach chairs that were provided were somewhat dirty.

LOVED it!

  • 5 of 5

This was my mine and my husbands first vacation together and we absolutely loved everything about the cabana and the outer banks! This cabana is adorable! It's perfect for a nice little getaway. It has everything you need if you prefer to stay in and cook. We loved have the decks to sit on in the evenings and it's just steps away from the beach. We felt like we had the beach to ourselves! Susan and Dan are great and they are super easy to work with. We are already talking about our next vacation to Hatteras! We loved this area because it is quiet and relaxing and isn't really your typical beach area vacation spot. It's very close to the beautiful Cape Hatteras Lighthouse and to the ferry to Okracoke Island. We will for sure be back!

Great place!! Great people!!

  • 4 of 5

Studio was very nicely decorated and clean. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook with. It is pretty small inside so try not to bring too much stuff, just the necessities. And if you're looking for a charter, I highly recommend Twin Bills. We had a great time. Thanks for sharing your cabana.

Fabulous!!!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a somewhat last-minute long weekend getaway, and this was just what we needed! The cabana itself was super cozy, spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated, and well-maintained. The bed was amazingly comfortable! We wound up spending a rainy day indoors and I'd forgotten to bring cards, but we found the stash of games in the cabana and had a blast playing Bananagrams all afternoon. Our weekend was simply fabulous. Thank you!!! We'll be back!

Very nice getaway

  • 5 of 5

These cabanas are a wonderful concept. This place is comfortable, and well stocked. A perfect place for a couple who wants to prepare their own meals and have access to everything they need to enjoy the beach. Not the Ritz, but clean and comfortable. We enjoyed it and will be back.
