Overview

About the property

2 bedroom, 2 Bath with the Ocean a 2 min walk and Pamlico sound off back deck

Mad Hatteras: This is the two bedroom condo you have been dreaming about. We are situated on a very narrow section of Hatteras island and because of this we have unparalleled views and access to the sound and the ocean with nothing in front or behind us except water. New for 2018 we have a Pelican Kayak for all guests to use with their rental, new shiplap wall, new living room Hunter fans, a newly remodeled kitchen including Curava counters made from recycled glass with embedded shells, some new appliances, sea glass backsplash with local artist Stephanie Kiker tiles. New swingasan chair in the living room and brand new bedding in the kids room. All new pics to come in March keep your eyes open. Newly redecorated with fresh paint and all new furniture. Front deck to relax and enjoy a glass of wine as you watch the waves crash against the sandy dunes or watch the Pelicans and Cormorants dive for fish. Catch the kitesurfers bouncing across the waves their kites a boundless kaleidoscope of color on the horizon. Watch the dolphins play in the surf or catch a fishing boat in the distance with binoculars provided with your rental. A children's room with pint sized table and chairs, a book shelf and single over double bunks. Open the windows to listen to the ocean waves as you sleep. This room is comfortable for adults as well as children and also has an ensuite bathroom decorated with whales. A fully stocked kitchen with a coffee bar equipped with a Keurig as well as a Black and Decker 12 cup programmable coffee maker makes it easy to grab a cup and head for the front deck to catch the early morning rays that glisten over the ocean. Brand new Pioneer Woman pots and pans, dishes and silverware will make that meal you cook as easy as vacation life should be. Up the winding circular staircase is the loft bedroom with a queen sized bed, comfortable bedding and an ensuite bathroom with huge tub. You will feel as though you have entered another world where octopus rule this part of the condo. Downstairs an Ashley queen sized sofa sleeper with comfy memory foam topper will give anyone a great night's slumber as you wake to the sounds of the Pamlico Sound lapping at the shore through the sliding glass doors which lead to the back deck. The back deck has all resin wicker furniture with fun cushions that are comfy and rain resistant. Relax and enjoy the afternoon sun setting over the sound as the thud of clam shells hit the dock and you can watch Sebastian our resident Seagull drop clam shells to claim his dinner. While you wait for the moon to cast it's light upon the water enjoy a glass of wine or cocktail. Night has fallen and the stars are breathtaking, you have the best of both worlds the Pamlico sound only a breath away off the back deck and sitting on the front deck there is nothing between you and the spectacular view of the ocean, a short two minute walk down the driveway and you are on the most pristine beach you have ever seen. This condo is situated on the edge of Hatteras Village along the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. There is a fish cleaning table, 2 showers, and a community bbq with picnic table also on the grounds for your use. With Sea Whisper's private dock for residents and guests on the soundside canoeists, kayakers, paddleboarders, kiteboarders, sound anglers, and nature photographers will have a vacation paradise. Below are a few other sights and activities you may enjoy:

About Jennifer Largent

Hi, We are the Largents, Larry and Jennifer. We live in White Bear Lake, Minnesota

Land of four seasons, pre-winter, winter, post winter and next winter. Our state bird is the mosquito. =) But all that aside we love it here, we have five children and nine grandchildren. We feel very blessed and they are the breath that fills our souls. The name for our condo was chosen by my granddaughter Gracie who somehow came up with the name in the blink of an eye. My hubby is set to retire in the fall of 2017 and we hope to visit the condo much more especially during the winter.

Jennifer Largent purchased this condo in 2016

Why Jennifer Largent chose Hatteras

We visited the outer banks a few years ago and stayed in Rodanthe. We fell in love with the people, the quietness of the beaches, the unspoiled land of the Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge, the restaurants and shopping and our favorite place to visit, Duck Donuts. (actually my son's and husband's fav but I humor them) We decided in the summer of 2016 to look for a place of our own. We looked and looked and as fate would have it we found the condo. At first glance, it needed alot of work and so we had to use our imagination as to what it could look like. We started shipping some furniture to the condo and then the hurricane hit. We hadn't even visited the condo yet but were uncertain as to what we would learn as the water receded (more than 6 feet of water converged on the condo building). We lost our hvac unit but because the building is built off the ground there was damage but not as much as some homeowners got. Our first visit was about a month after the hurricane hit and when we arrived lots of rebuilding was going on and piles of lost belongings and destroyed property items were along Hwy 12 as we traveled to Hatteras. Our hearts went out to all the people who lost property during hurricane Matthew. The damage was substantial and many had to start completely over. Our van filled to capacity and I mean capacity we have a stow and go there was not a square inch of space left. We brought all the decor and bedding plus some furniture. Our daughters came to help and the change was amazing when we finished. The pictures don't even do it justice, it is a beautiful comfy cozy place and the new sofa sleeper is amazing. No more bars, its like sleeping on a trampoline with a memory foam topper like a cloud. We hope that our guests will love our condo as much as we do, we decorated with you in mind. The kids room is wonderful and I know my grandkids will love it and we hope your kids or grandkids will too. Visit us soon and we hope we will become your favorite vacation

What makes this condo unique

Traveling across the Herbert Bonner bridge to Hatteras Island you will feel as though you have entered into a time warp, island time. Please be aware it may suck you in and you may never want to leave. We have a darling kids room decorated to keep your kids amused. We have a brand new portable baby crib available. There are single over double bunks which can accommodate adults as well. There is a book shelf filled with kids books and a colorful table with chairs for reading or playing games. Sand toys and an illuminet for crabbing are located in the shark bag in the room. We hope your kids will enjoy the room and feel comfortable. All the bedding is brand new throughout and each bed has a bed bug cover and comforter as well as a bedspread. With the windows open you can hear the ocean waves crashing on the shore as you drift off to sleep. Brand new furniture and furnishings throughout we hope that you will enjoy your stay with us. The best part is the ocean and the sound so close. You can sit on the back deck as the sun sets and enjoy the last wisps of daylight watching the birds, kayakers and paddleboarders. Or walk to the beach which is about 400 steps away down the driveway and watch the sun come up or set. We think it is the most beautiful place on earth. With the refuge so close (several hundred feet to the North once you are on the beach) you can watch some of the 400 migrating birds including Peregrine Falcons or keep an eye out for a Loggerhead turtle winding its way up the beach to lay it's eggs. Please be aware that all turtle nests are protected so please do not disturb. With all the activities available, young and old will find enjoyment on the island or just relax and let the charm fill your soul and replenish your mind.

Mad Hatteras is the best

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Mad Hatteras (Sea Whisper) from 1-8 October 2017 was wonderful! We have been coming to the Outer Banks for decades and finally, we were at Hatteras without kids for a change. We have often stayed in Sea Whisper condos. We really love the close-in location of the sound to view waterfowl and equally love sitting and walking on the beach at all times and even “drowning bait” in the surf. We were struck this year by how little beach is left at lunar high tide. We prefer staying at Sea Whisper because of its relatively isolated location compared to other offerings in Hatteras Village, or for that matter anywhere else on Hatteras Island. As for Mad Hatteras, itself – the condo couldn’t have been better. The owners have clearly turned their home into a project of love. The home is clean and well-appointed. I believe the only thing we found lacking was a pair of scissors for the kitchen. Renting through Home Away, rather than through a local real estate agent was so much easier. The owners were in touch several times before we arrived (particularly appreciated since Hatteras had a close call with Hurricane Maria the week before) and they were responsive to all of our questions. Mad Hatteras will be our first choice for a place to stay on our next trip to the Outer Banks.

Beautiful Sea Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovingly updated condo, with everything you could possibly need to unwind and just relax. You can enjoy the oceanfront deck with coffee in the morning, and the sound side deck with evening meals while watching the wildlife, ocean birds, an otter, rabbits, sunsets, etc. Plenty of places to visit and eat out in close proximity. This is a small complex, with a big attitude. Look forward to spending time there again.

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Mad Hatteras! The decor of the condo is so beautiful and welcoming. You can tell someone spend a lot of time and effort pouring their heart into all of the little details. My 3 girls loved staying in the children's room. It was perfect for them. We absolutely loved being so close to both the ocean and the sound. We enjoyed boogie boarding and body surfing in the crashing waves on the beach. Peaceful and quiet as the condo is situated on one side of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore and Refuge so you can walk endlessly on the beach and not see a soul. While the kids enjoyed fishing in the quiet waters of the sound. Truly the best of both Worlds! We look forward to planning future family vacations to this special little spot! We definitely give Mad Hatteras 5 S*T*A*R*S*

Beautiful, Relaxing, Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

Mad Hatteras is absolutely perfect for rest, relaxation and great fun. The condo is beautifully decorated with amazing views from both the back and front decks. At times it was hard to decide if we wanted to sit out back looking at the sound or in the front looking at the ocean. Jenny and Larry provided excellent customer service and all of our needs were met. There are so many excellent shopping and restaurant locations near by it is hard to decide where to go. The extra time it takes to drive out to Hatteras is well worth the trip. Be sure to take the ferry to Okacroke one day for more shopping and great places to eat. Thank you Jenny and Larry!!

Easy access to sound and beach activities! Quiet, relaxing and low key.

  • 5 of 5

The sea whisper condos are perfect for accessing the sound and beach. It's a quiet location with wonderful views of the ocean and sunsets over the sound. There is a place to launch kayaks/SUPs onsite.

Nearest Ferry
2 Miles
Ocracoake (free)
Nearest Beach
Right in front of you
Car: necessary

The ferry to Ocracoake Island is a must do- the ferry is free and if you go around sunset you will get a free sunset cruise. During summer hours it is best to park and walk on the ferry versus driving as you might miss the beautiful sunset. Driving however gives you the opportunity to visit the quaint town of Ocracoake with its beautiful scenery, shopping and restaurants. Drive a golf cart around town for a small fee or catch the ferry here for another island. IF you visit Ocracoake a must do for a snack or even a meal is visit Eduardo's he has a trailer on the left side as you enter town. The BEST tacos you will ever eat. We love the Shrimp and Mango tacos, try them you won't regret it and very inexpensive. Also if you catch some fish or pick some up at Harbor House ( best seafood and fish to purchase in town) If you don't want to cook it go to Sandbar Grille up the beach on the left in Buxton and ask for the BYOF (Bring your own fish) They will cook it for you any way you want it and give you sides. The potatoes are amazing. They also have an extensive menu but the BYOF is delic. I suggest frying some and having some blackened. Also the chocolate chip pecan pie is fantastic and comes with ice cream and whip cream. *Try Vicky's (owner of Harbor House) crab or shrimp enchiladas they are delicious. A must do is to stop at the Dancing Turtle for coffee. (down by the ferry on the left) Brian is the owner and he is friendly and courteous and genuinely loves what he does. Get him to talk about KIte Boarding and you have made a friend for life. Some of the best coffee I have ever had. His shop is adorable and quaint and the art by Stephanie Kiker is amazing. If you go up the beach to Nags head, Kill Devils Hills or Kitty Hawk you must stop at Duck Donuts. Made fresh in front of you with your choice of toppings it is by far the best donut you will ever eat. Other things you can do include:

*Windsurfing

*Kitesurfing

*Paddleboards

*Kayaks

*Dolphin Tours

*Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge

*Nature Trails

*Crabbing

*Photography

*Riding horseback on the Beach

*Wild Horses Of Corolla Tours- or grab yourself a 4-wheel drive vehicle for the day and visit this off road area on your own time. For a small weekly fee you can also drive on the beaches here as long as you have a 4-wheel drive vehicle. Many people visit the beaches of Corolla where the horses are and make a day of it picnicking and enjoying the beautiful unspoiled beaches.

*Pier fishing

*Surf fishing

*Deep Sea fishing- Any kind of fishing you want to do is available.

*Sea Turtles - please do not disturb any nests

*Wright Bros Museum

*Plenty of shopping and restaurants along Hwy 12

*Don't forget to visit Duck Donuts - donuts made while you wait. The best you have ever eaten

We cover all of these and more in our guide to the Outer Banks which we provide in the condo for you to use during your visit. We hope you will visit Mad Hatteras soon and make us your home away from home.
