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!

Perfect location for family relaxation and fun. Quiet street, beautiful beach, perfect home

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our annual family vacation at this perfect location in the NC Outer Banks. Central to many attractions, but secluded enough to avoid crowded roads noise. Our parents celebrated 56 years of marriage during our stay. The house was perfect, we cooked, laughed, played games on the deck and enjoyed the hot tub. Will definitely visit again. Thank you for a perfect week with family.

Fun in the sun!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start?

The house is amazing, the views are amazing. Everything that you could possibly need or want is provided. We all felt very comfortable and at home as soon as we got there.

Plenty of bathrooms, plus the bonus of an outside shower which many of our group used everyday. There is a very large gas grill which we needed for our large group, 2 full size fridges plus an extra small one which was also another ice maker. This one is conveniently placed by the door to go out to the beach for the day.

We were a group of 10 plus a dog who have been friends for 40+ years. We had such a great relaxing week having lots of laughs and making lots of memories. None of us wanted to leave, even the dog was so relaxed and comfortable.

There are 3 decks you can choose from. We spent every morning watching some very stunning sunrises from the deck off the living area, this is the deck that we spent most of our time on just watching the ocean and listening to the crash of the waves. Grab a quick breakfast and head down to the beach which is maybe a 2 minute walk, close enough to run back for snacks ,bathroom breaks or waters. We saw about 8 dolphins in the early evenings swimming and jumping, this made my day!!!

I love the fact that you are close enough to go to the "busy" towns if you choose or just stay put and enjoy the peacefulness of the waves crashing.

I really can not say enough about this jewel. Everyone in my group just kept on saying what a beautiful house, location and views. We actually started talking about and planning our trip back for next year on day 3!!

Thank you for making our trip "Fun in the sun" even better than we could have imagined.

Has everything you need for a great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Really nice property, you can tell the owners spend time there because everything is in its place and the views from the deck off the kitchen are just awesome, crashing of the waves really enhances the experience. Great kitchen and grill to cook in and two large refrigerators and a smaller Bev cooler and ice maker for loading the cooler for the 30 sec walk to the beach. Really great to just walk back to grill lunch or use the bathroom. Great outdoor shower as well!

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely wonderful place to stay! The view is amazing and you are only "steps" from the beach. The owners were so gracious in working with us on getting back here since we were essentially "washed" out from the hurricane in the fall of 2016.... I can't say enough about this place and how clean it was and had everything in it a family would ever need.... I so look forward to coming back.... I have found my "dream vacation rental"... Thanks Danny and Mary!!!!

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.

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.
