About the property

Pet friendly, clean, and completely renovated

**** NEW IN 2016 We did lots of great renovation for our beach house this winter! We are so excited to have the beach house ready for our guests for the 2016 season. A new master bath added along with a larger sq. footage for the bedrooms with fans. New flooring installed throughout the house, new windows, updated furniture, new bedding, and freshly painted. A new outdoor shower and new patio furniture on the main level deck will complete our renovations! Our Rodanthe Beach House is close the beach & pet friendly. “Four Oh One Kay” is a classic, cozy pet friendly Hatteras Island cottage with a short walk to the beach access via Sudie Payne Road. A convenient one level floor plan with a spacious great room makes it perfect for families. The living room, dining room and kitchen are all attached and open making together time more convenient than ever.

'Four Oh One Kay' features a spacious living room with overstuffed couches and armchair to make summer evenings just a little more relaxing while the family is gathering. The kitchen is right next to you with a wonderful buffet center island that includes your stove and small appliances great for breakfasts and lunches! Plenty of space for a couple of kitchen cooks to move around and prepare the family meals. The dining area is cozy with plenty of chairs for the household. Lots of windows are all around you so there is plenty of light for those early morning breakfasts.

The bedrooms are all together down the hall. The large master suite features its own full bathroom, deck with private outdoor shower, and television. The blue room has a queen size bed with a television. The bunk bedroom even features a childrens table and chair set with their own television for kid time.

The homeowner made extensive upgrades and repairs to the underside of the house including a sandy spot for the kids or dogs to play out of the summer sun. Fully enclosed showers upstairs and down stairs is just waiting for you to cool off after a long day at the beach! Lastly is the fish cleaning table for the angler in your family, fresh water to keep everything clean has been added too.

This home is located close to Hatteras Island stores, shopping, restaurants and attractions. The historic Chicamacomico Life-Saving Station is just a short walk on the beach from “Four Oh One Kay” and exploring it is a great way to spend an early morning or late afternoon. The recently added huge decks with screened porch and rooftop deck offer expansive views of the Atlantic Ocean and amazing sound side sunsets.

About Grace Andriliunas

We live in Poquoson VA and have vacationed with our family in the Outer Banks for years before discovering the beauty of Hatteras Island. We fell in love with Rodanthe and finally found our “Dream Beach Cottage” back in 2009. We spend many (many) weekends working on the house to keep it clean and in good repair so our guest will can have an affordable vacation while enjoying to tranquility of beautiful beaches and slower pace of Hatteras Island.

Grace Andriliunas purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Grace Andriliunas chose Cape Hatteras

Water sports are popular on the shores of this beach because of the great winds the Southern Outer Banks gets. If you've already tried the amazing sport of wind surfing or kite boarding, then you probably bring your own boards. For those looking to get in on the action, REAL Kite boarding offers lessons for the sport indigenous to the Outer Banks. Or, if you just need rentals, you can find most any kind of water sport equipment at the shop. The Chicamacomico Life Saving Station provides education entertainment with their museum. They also perform re-enactments of life saving venture each week. Environmentalist enjoy the wildlife refuge just north of the area, where many different species of birds call home. No matter what you're after, you'll find it in Rodanthe.

What makes this cottage unique

In 2002, Nicholas Sparks published the book Nights in Rodanthe that was later adapted into a movie. George C. Wolfe directed this film adaptation, which was partially filmed in the town of Rodanthe and entirely filmed in eastern North Carolina – including Cape Hatteras, Southport and Wilmington. The movie was released on September 26, 2008. Several Rodanthe landmarks such as the Rodanthe Pier were used during filming. During film production, one of the rental houses, Serendipity, the north-easternmost house in Rodanthe, was transformed into the fictional Inn at Rodanthe. This house was damaged and condemned after a Nor'easter storm in November 2009. The house was saved from demolition by a private business man from Newton, N.C. and moved less than one mile south

House nicely furnished, adorable in fact. Not the best

  • 2 of 5

Master bath very small and there was no area to enable placement of towels or washcloths that were clean. Please remind folks to have their own toilet paper. There was a message regarding paper towels but not having toilet paper was an unfortunate scramble. The worst experience is the smell of mold that hits you as soon as you enter the home. It was pervasive and even followed us home in our clothes and linens. This is a shame as the house has been restored with care. The homes around the cottage are really trashy. The ground is covered with junk. There is an old abandoned trailer sitting down from the cottage. Looking out the front windows provides a view of trash and junk. Sad as again, the cottage has been redone nicely .The road is an adventure. Just really in awful shape. I think the most negative for me was the smell. Somehow the mold needs to be remediated.

Owner's Response: Wow! That's a first about a moldy smell...some people should just stay at a 5 star hotel at a resort. They still may complain. This is the beach house in Rodanthe, it's more rustic and laid back - locals live in the area.

Charming, comfortable, and convenient

  • 5 of 5

This home is very well located. It is a quick, easy walk (even with all our fishing gear) to the beach and right off route 12. Easy drive to glorious 4WD beaches, wildlife, and fishing paradise.

The house is adorable inside and out. Cute beachy exterior and charming and functional interior space. The furnishings are well maintained, clean, and comfy. Our family really enjoyed the one level layout and ample room sizes. Full sized washer and dryer right in the kitchen so you can be with the family, cook, hang out and get the laundry done! The decor is updated and fresh-it feels like a little family home minus the clutter:)

The owner is very accommodating and easy to work with. If you are looking for a super touristy area, this is not the place. It has everything you need for fun and relaxation but not the hustle bustle and commercialism of the more northern beach towns. We would rent this place again for sure.

Perfect fall vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend so our husbands could fish and us wives could have some girl time. The house was nothing short of adorable! The roof deck was perfect to just sit & enjoy the view, especially at night. It wasn't a far walk to the beach but if you wanted to, you could just drive right up to the public access just up the road, that was almost easier with our baby. Grace has to be the sweetest person and so easy to work with! If we needed anything, she was just a call away. That alone was so refreshing! We are already planning on a trip next year and I have to say I cant wait! Thank you so much Grace for everything & I'm in love with your place :)

Great location, very nice house

  • 5 of 5

The house is located one block from the beach, easy short walk to get there. It has been newly renovated and looks very nice, very clean. We enjoyed our stay tremendously. Easy access to boat renting, supermarket in Avon, convenience stores close by. Grace, the owner, is very nice and easy to work with. I liked to convenience of a lockbox for the keys, so much better than having to stop by a real estate/property management office after a long drive. I highly recommend this property if you're looking for a relaxing vacation on the beach.

A perfect house on a beautiful stretch of beach, can't wait to return!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fabulous vacation stay at Grace's Four Oh One Kay!! The home's renovations look fresh, the furniture was comfortable and the open floor plan was great for watching the Olympics at night, playing Yahtzee and having cocktails. The beach in Rodanthe was gorgeous, clean and wide enough for plenty of beach goers, but the best part was that we had the beach almost entirely to ourselves. It was great being able to bring our sweet Pudge along for the trip too! The roof top deck provided beautiful views, but might have been outdone by the outdoor shower which my family thoroughly enjoyed taking advantage of. There were a few restaurants and shops in the area but if you are looking for a commercial presence similar to Nags Head then Rodanthe might not be your cup of tea, but if you are looking to relax this is the place! Our favorite restaurant was Waterman's not only because the food was amazing but the sunsets at night, the live music and the staff were wonderful!! We also really loved the deli sandwiches at Waves Market. We will absolutely be back and would definitely recommend this home to other people who love OBX!! Thanks Grace for being so easy to communicate with and for making our stay seamless!!

Quiet location with easy access to a great beach.

  • 4 of 5

Recent updates were nice, and we especially loved the new outdoor shower. Beach access was a short walk down a shared driveway, and our part of the beach always had the fewest people and most space to spread out. We didn't see a single mosquito, but did see some super cute tree frogs.

Kitchen is very well stocked with all kinds of handy gizmos... two crock pots, pancake griddle, waffle iron, hot chocolate maker and more.

One thing we would have liked is a clothes line somewhere for drying towels.
