Truly a Treasure! This beautiful Hatteras Island vacation home is perfect for your family vacation or a special ''Romantic Get-Away''! Located just 3 lots from the ocean with beautiful ocean views. You are only moments away from toes in the sand!!

Enjoy spectacular sunsets and breathtaking views from both decks and most rooms.

This is the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee, an outdoor meal, sunbathing or just enjoying the incredible view.

There is a game room located on the ground floor (great for the kids!) with an Air Hockey table, Foosball table, stereo, TV and a 2nd refrigerator (handy for cold drinks for the beach and your ''Catch of the Day''). Also on this level is a separate laundry room, Hot/Cold Outdoor shower w/ changing area, Fish Cleaning Station, Horseshoes and a charcoal grill.

The main level is cheerfully decorated and very welcoming so it has that ''Home Away from Home'' feel. The living room is a great place for guests to gather for some evening entertainment -TV/DVD, boardgames or just some great conversation and relaxation.

The kitchen is well equipped making meal preparation a snap. Cooking is so much better when you can see the ocean!! There is a large pantry providing plenty of room for your groceries. There is a large table and seating for six in the open dining area.

SEAcret Treasures sleeps six. There are 3 bedrooms all bright and decorated with tropical beach themes. The master bedroom has a Queen bed , TV and its own master bathroom. The second bedroom has a Full/Double bed and the third bedroom has two Twin beds.

Other places to explore include Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge, the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum, the Hatteras Lighthouse and the Civil War Battle of Chicamacomico Races. You can take the Ferry to Ocracoke Island for a fun-filled day trip. There are also many shops, restaurants and water sports.

There is absolutely something for everyone here! Whether you want to do everything , just lay on the beach (or great decks) and unwind or a little bit of both! You have found the perfect place!

About Cheryl Norman

Hello- -My husband, Vernon and I (Cheryl) are the owners of SEAcret Treasure. We've been married 27 years, have 2 adult children and live in Maryland. We have been vacationing with our children in the Outer Banks for many years. We bought this cottage in 2004. By the beginning of the rental season in 2005 we had completely transformed what had formerly been ''Fuller's Sea Breeze''. Vernon took what was then the owner's storage area and turned it into the game room. He also added the huge sundeck. I went to work inside. Sanding, painting and decorating. We try very hard to do something new every season so that it is kept in great shape. This little cottage has become one of our favorite places on earth. So many happy memories. Such a peaceful place.

Cheryl Norman purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Cheryl Norman chose Cape Hatteras

Rodanthe has always been our family's favorite vacation spot so a cottage here was a dream come true. The beaches are simply beautiful. We chose this house because it is located on a very quiet side street so close to the ocean. It is also close to the Liberty Station (convenience store/gas station). So once here you don't really need to drive. It is short walk to the pier or Pea Island in the other direction. The views are amazing. The street is quiet. Perfect!

What makes this cottage unique

Morning coffee or an evening glass of wine on the swing are pure pleasure. The ocean views and the breeze as you swing- - -it really is so relaxing. We keep 2 bikes in the laundry room for guests use- -this makes trips to the convenience store a bit more fun! We also keep a variety of beach items for use by guests. The views from the house and being so close to the beach are sure to lift your spirits. Part of the deck is covered so you can even enjoy being outside on a rocking chair in the rain! Even a rainy day here is a good day! It is a great place to be.

Absolutely Fabulous!!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cottage just seconds from the ocean. We had everything we needed for a great stay. The cottage was even nicer than in the pictures. My kids and my mom all loved every second and we were so sad to leave. Best vacation ever! Cheryl was so easy to work with...very organized and detail oriented. Great experience all around. Highly recommended!!

We completely enjoyed our time at the SEAcret Treasure!! The location is amazing. A few short steps from the beach so you can go back and forth all you need. The size of the house was perfect. The decks are amazing with great views. The kids had a great time and enjoyed the game room. The house is so clean and easy to maintain during our stay. It's very pretty inside and out. I also think its the best area to be in. As we traveled around it seemed to be the best location for privacy and access to everything we needed. I'd rate it 10 starts if I could. :-)

Fabulous location. Great for family.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location, fully set up with all you need. Area/game room under deck was fabulous place for kids to play while parents cooked. Only downside is that the grocery was a bit of a hike away, but we planned for that so was not a problem. Would definitely go back again.

INCREDIBLE COTTAGE - PERFECT LOCATION - AWESOME VIEWS - OUTSTANDING VACATION!

  • 5 of 5

Well we just made it home and back to work today after another incredible vacation at the best cottage on Hatteras! We are so lucky to be able to visit this cottage year after year and we had an awesome two week stay at SEAcret Treasure. The weather at times was challenging (Bonnie dropped a lot of rain and Colin followed) but the weather before, between and after the storms was great. The cottage was so clean and fresh. The owners always add and upgrade something every year and we really enjoyed the new deck furniture and the brand refrigerator. The cottage has everything you will need for you and your family. The location is perfect for fishing, surfing or just hanging out. We are not wishing the summer away but we are so looking forward to coming back in the fall. The communication with Cheryl is just great, she dropped us several weather updates and to check to make sure we had everything we needed. We hope to come back every year and we greatly appreciate Cheryl and Vernon sharing SEAcret Treasure with us. Thanks!

AWESOME RENTAL!!

First of all, Cheryl is very responsive to any questions. Secondly, the house is completely equipped for any need that you might have. The house is beautifully decorated!! Even more updated than pictures. SO CLOSE to the beach!! Literally takes 1:30 to be on the beach. Views from the kitchen, deck and upper deck are stunning. We are grateful to Cheryl and her family for sharing their beautiful home in lovely Rodanthe.

Best Cottage in Rodanthe!

  • 5 of 5

Love, love, love SEAcret Treasure! This was our second year staying there, it is just the perfect cottage. We arrived after dark, after a long drive, so it was nice the beds were made up. Bed linens were a new addition this year, a great one. The cottage is so perfectly decorated for the shore, clean, and a well equipped kitchen. The game room was put to use on the rainy days, and the bikes are a great way to get around. There are plenty of shops and a few restaurants you can bike to. The beach is so close, and the views from both decks are delightful. Cheryl is very pleasant to work with and very prompt in responding to email. SEAcret Treasure truly is a treasure, we'll be back next year to make some more Outer Banks memories!
