Build a beautiful resort village on a favorite Hatteras Island location, and they will come. The Cottages at the Cape are the closest condos to the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse in Buxton. They share a long border with the national park and are literally steps from the beachfront. Bring the bikes, because Buxton’s unique shops, restaurants, and lighthouse are all very close. Forget the 4WD vehicle - those in the know have discovered that the three jetties to the east of the cottages produce some of the best fishing, surfing, and swimming on this island. Walking to the south will take you to open beaches, the famed Cape Point, and if luck is on your side during the summer, a few sea turtle nests (be careful to stay outside the barriers). The interior has been professionally decorated with comfortable and fun beach décor, cooled by pleasant central air conditioning. You'll have access to an outside shower and a patio. An escape to the cape never looked so good as at Cottages at the Cape.

Enjoyed the roominess, great location to the beach, clean. I will say it’s a bit outdated. Overall nice place.
Bonnie L. Jun 2022
We loved the location and the house had really everything we needed. However the beds really need to be replaced! They are so concave that both people fall right into the middle. Also, the internet was spotty and kept going in and out which wasn't great for working remotely. I will say the towels were almost brand new which was so nice. Also it was so nice to have the extra hand soap, mini detergents, toilet paper, and papertowls to get through the week. Overall we loved it, just really need new beds and internet needs to be fixed.
Manager response:

The property was in a great location and close to the beach. I was told that they would be a grill and there was not one when I got there. I called the property management company and they sent me a brand new grill. I am a happy customer because of that service and I will be back and we’ll book with the Vacasa again! The property is very conveniently located to beach access points and lots of convenience stores around and a quick walk to the beach

This house is conveniently located a short walk from beach access. The lighthouse is in the background, the neighborhood is pleasant and the accommodations are adequate - overall it was a great week.

The property appears to be older than the online pictures portray. Kitchen cabinets and window blinds have definitely had use and/or abuse. If you don’t plan to spend much time indoors then this would be an adequate rental.
Manager response:
Thank you for choosing to stay with us and share your review. We are in the process of replacing the old, metal blinds and will suggest to the homeowner an update of the cabinets. We hope to host you again, S!

Started with difficulty getting key. My bath towel had a 5 inch round hole in middle! Kitchen was well equipped. Front screened porch was comfy but chairs had to be washed. We liked access to seashore.
Manager response:

Loved the view of the lighthouse. House was okay carpet dirty, furniture needs steam cleaned. Pictures in the brochure are about 10 years old. The unit we were in had a cracked picture window , several cabinets had broken hinges. Also need to let people know all bedrooms were upstairs. Area was very quiet and thewalk path behind unit was great. Would prefer next rental to have a master bedroom on main level.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us! We are so glad you had a great time! We take guest feedback seriously and have forwarded this information to the local staff so they can review and update the home as needed for future guests. We will be sure to follow up with the appropriate parties regarding your experience. We hope to have the opportunity to host you again soon!
