It's been hard to move from dealing with Hatteras Realty to Vacasa, which is a nationwide firm. Many times I end up talking to someone in who knows where that has no idea about the house or the area. However, after not getting satisfaction, I asked them to have someone from the local area contact me. Tom responded immediately and took care of what I needed. The folks on Hatteras Island have always been great to deal with. By the way, the house is spectacular and well-equipped. Even when we had a few needs, the local folks responded within an hour or two. Just goes to show that even when you get bought by the a large corporate entity, you can still do your best to show excellent service. Thanks!

10 bedrooms each with their own bathroom. One bedroom is a bunk room, the others are queen beds. The kitchen is perfect for a large group cooking together. Plenty of pots, pans, dishes, utensils, knives, bowls, servers, etc. Large pantry. A dozen cook tops. Ample room to park cars. Lots of seating in the theater. Very pretty perch above all of the decks that is just a fabulous spot for the morning coffee. The place feels newer/nicer than most homes I've rented in OBX (many!).

The property is on a bit of a point with views in multiple directions. We rented a fleet of SUPS, Kayaks, boogie boards, and beach chairs/umbrellas from Island Bicycles and they were there when we arrived. Several of us kite and windsurf and the location serves many points of wind. 3 or 4 long tacks upwind puts you into the Buxton Slicks for flatwater fun. Just to the north and not too far offshore is water deep enough for foiling. We fished from kayaks and there was plenty of action using soft plastics and 1/4 oz jig heads.

The 3/8 mile walk to the ocean is pretty and is partly on a boardwalk.... or a short drive to a parking area.

close to Food Lion, Ace Hardware, gas station, Brothers Deli, seafood store, and bars.

You will love this place.

Dorothy M. Sep 2021
Everything about this house is beautiful. The very minor problems we experienced were fixed on the day we asked for maintenance. The views from every room were spectacular.
Manager response:
Hi, Dorothy! We are pleased to hear your stay was enjoyable. We greatly appreciate the feedback we look foward to hosting you soon.

Spectacular beautiful views from every angle. Great pool and hot tub area. Kitchen fully equipped, abundance of appliances, including ice makers, cookware and eating utensils. Easily accommodated 22. Theater enjoyed by all. Plenty of living space and large bedrooms. Kayaks were fun. One of washing machines inoperable, the other worked well. Owner was very responsive on washing machine problem. Recommend adding some beach chairs. Great stay!

Perfect location for Sound water sports and expansive open shoreline and beach to the North.
