About Mary LeCates

My husband, Danny, and I have lived in the same small town in Delaware all our lives. We share our home with our 2 chocolate labs, Luke and Remi, and a calico cat, Callie. Our 2 children and 5 grandchildren live nearby.

Mary LeCates purchased this house in 2009

Why Mary LeCates chose Cape Hatteras

KaCee's Retreat is our dream come true! We love to spend time here with our children, grandchildren, and chocolate labs, Luke and Remi. We first vacationed on Hatteras Island about 13 years ago and instantly fell in love with the area. When we stayed in Rodanthe 8 years ago, we knew we had found the perfect vacation spot! We decided to take the leap and make our dream of owning a beach house a reality. We sincerely hope that our guests enjoy the beauty and peacefulness of Hatteras Island as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

We love that KaCee's Retreat is so close to the beach and has fantastic views of the ocean. With our large family, the 5 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms are a big plus! Our favorite things to do are walking on the beach looking for unusual shells and sea glass, and just relaxing and watching the ever-changing ocean.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This home worked out really well for us. We loved the hammock, the views of the ocean, and the floorplan was perfect. The kitchen was perfectly stocked with pots, pans, dishes, glasses, and utensils. I wish the grill would have been working, but otherwise, just right!

Beautiful views of the beach and ocean. House is very beautiful and very well kept

  • 5 of 5

Had an incredible week with my friends. The house was beautiful and fulfilled all of our needs and then some. Favorite part of the week was enjoying time with friends in the hot tub looking out at the ocean and watching the sun set over the sound.

A perfect week at the beach

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful week at Kaycee's Retreat. We appreciated the way Mary responded so quickly to our questions! The home was lovely...spacious, comfy, well-stocked, and accurately described on the website. Each day we took long walks on the deserted beach, enjoying sunrises, sunsets, and watching the dolphins play in the surf. It was a wonderful week and Kaycee's Retreat was the perfect place to spend Christmas with our family!

This obviously well-love property is as noted in write up; no surprises. Owner helpful, responded promptly to questions prior to visit and was a pleasure to work with. We felt safe and secure. Slow pace of off-season was a definite bonus for us! Can't wait to revisit.

Wonderful, wonderful time though Hurricane Matthew cut into our week the owners have been very gracious. We so look forward to coming back in late March or early April. The place is gorgeous with excellent views of the ocean. Definitely a "come back" to place with plenty of room for everyone. The ocean is probably just 30 yards away and you can't beat that!!!

Needs a good cleaning

  • 2 of 5

Pros

Great location and plenty of room for large parties.

Only a few feet from a beautiful beach.

Views of beach front from decks.

Allows pets.

Cons

House needs a thorough deep cleaning.

Toaster oven stopped working while there. (Found another unit under sink that I had to clean before using)

Broken bins in refrigerator.

Kitchen knobs had a greasy feel when touched.

Master bedroom sheets covered in body hairs. Had to be washed by us before use.

This could be a great rental if whoever is responsible for the cleaning actually cleans. Sorry for this review because it's probably not the owners fault.

Owner's Response: Obviously, we are disappointed to receive a bad review. We've owned KaCee's Retreat for seven years and, in that time, we have only had two or three unhappy guests. Shore Details is our property manager and we have been very happy with them. Tammy, our cleaner, has always been excellent. This guest told us about the sheets and the broken bin in the refrigerator. Someone from Shore Details brought clean sheets and was going to remake the bed but the guest had already washed the sheets. I called and left a message for the guest asking her to let us know which bin was broken so we could order a new one but she didn't respond.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the beach and the house was perfect for us and our 3 children and their significant others plus my 81 year old mother. The house was in great shape and had everything we needed. The beach was just a very short walk away. My mom had no trouble walking the short distance. I hope to come back! Oh and the beach was beautiful and very clean!

Hatteras Island is a beautiful, narrow strip of land between the Atlantic Ocean and Pamlico Sound. You won't want to miss exploring the Hatteras Island Lighthouse, Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum, and Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge. In Rodanthe, you'll find the Chicamacomico Life-Saving Station Museum and the Civil War Battle of Chicamacomico Races. There are excellent restaurants in the tri-village area of Rodanthe, Waves, and Salvo, as well as in Avon and Buxton. If you visit Ocracoke Island to the south, Howard's Pub is a must. The Oregon Inlet Marina, where you can book a charter for gulf-stream fishing, is just a short drive away. The Town of Manteo on Roanoke Island is only a 30 minute drive from Rodanthe. Visit the North Carolina Aquarium, enjoy the outdoor play at The Lost Colony, and explore the beautiful Elizabethan Gardens. Parasailing is available at the Manteo Waterfront.
