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

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.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

Despite heavy rains, we had an excellent stay at this house. It was exactly as described and pictured, and we particularly liked the decor and color scheme. It had a fresh and beachy feel. The open kitchen-living area was a great place to hang out on rainy days or in the evenings, but perhaps the best part of all was the decks-- especially the upper deck, from which we could see the sunset over the sound each night. The walk to the beach was short but became impossible when the road was flooded. We were able to drive to other beach access, though (the pier area was close by and very nice), and beaches were not overcrowded. Grace was accessible and responsive, and seemed to genuinely care about our stay. There are some nice places to eat nearby, but we suggest buying groceries in Nags Head rather than waiting to get them in Rodanthe. Also, be sure to double check the size of sheets needed for the beds, and note that there did not seem to be any closet space or hangers. All in all, we had a great stay at this house and would certainly recommend it to others!

Can't wait to come back

  • 5 of 5

I was travelling with my wife, our 17 month old son, and our dog. We loved the setup of the house, I especially loved the outdoor shower and the deck areas. Inside was very nicely kept and clean. The beach was fantastic, lots of space and the water was crystal clear. We pretty much spent 8 hours plus on the beach every day, it never got old. We used the charcoal grill out front to cook dinner pretty much every night. Only downside for me was that the walk to the beach and over the dunes was no easy task when you are transporting beach supplies for 2 adults and a little kid, it was well worth it though.

At Home in the Outer Banks!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in this comfortable home that was a few minutes walk from the beach. This house is nestled in the neighborhood of Rodanthe and is just a few blocks from Chicamacomico Lifesaving Station. To get to the beach we walked through a lovely wetlands area. The ocean had sizable and powerful waves. It was fun to throw in the boogie board, body surf and play in the water as well as watch the surfers!

The house had 3 bedrooms which were perfect for my family of 4 with 2 teenagers. The kitchen was well stocked with pans and laid out well. The TV and WiFi worked well. The outdoor shower was great! The cabinets did not have much in the way of " extras". I was glad we had brought some spices and salt and pepper. There also were not any extra beach items. If you want boogie boards and beach chairs you need to bring them.

The owner was friendly and helpful and the place was clean. I would recommend this property to others.

Great house in a quiet area

  • 5 of 5

We were 4 adults and spent one week enjoying this home. Great location, short walk on a quiet lane to gorgeous, uncrowded beach. The home has an open concept living area with plenty of room for everyone to help cook and relax. We had our dogs and the deck made it easy to keep them from roaming without needing to tie them as there is only one exit down. Would highly recommend!

Light and cheerful house within steps to the waves

  • 5 of 5

Grace is a wonderful and responsive host, and a pleasure to deal with. She ensured we knew about everything associated with the house and where things were. The process of renting the house went flawlessly. Though we did have to rent our linens, the company she referred to us was very responsible and got us everything we needed. The house itself is a cheerful yellow exterior and has two wonderful decks which allow great views to the sea, and the sea breeze. It was very well equipped with everything we needed: dishes, pots and pans, utensils, glasses and more. A major plus was having a clothes washer and dryer since we'd just arrived from two weeks of bike touring! The beds were comfortable enough, although new and fluffier pillows would be in order. More than one pillow per bed for the twins would also be nice.

The location of Rodanthe is about equi-distant from the north and south of Hatteras Island, which we found perfect for us. It is a quiet community with few, but adequate, restaurants and attractions nearby. We used our car extensively to get around as the Outer Banks has much to offer and it takes some driving to get to all the different places.

All in all, we had a wonderful stay and Grace made it so easy for us. She's a wonderful host and we wouldn't hesitate to stay at her lovely beach house again. Thumbs way up!
