Build a beautiful resort village on a favorite Hatteras Island location, and they will come. The Cottages at the Cape are the closest rental units 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. You'll have access to an outside shower, a patio, and even an elevator. An escape to the cape never looked so good as at Cottages at the Cape.

Handicap accessible and the location. Clean home, met our expectations. Needs some more kitchen accessories and bathroom counter space.

This was our second time staying at the Striper. We enjoyed our stay and was happy to see many updates since the last time we stayed.

Proximity to the beach

Loved the floor plan and elevator. Location is fantastic. Would have given a 4.8 if we could have.
Back deck and siding was in need of repairs. The sink in the shared full bath drains slowly. And kitchen cabinet above microwave won’t stay closed.
The elevator worked well but the outer door limit switch bail needs to be through bolted as wood screws are being pulled out from the stress of opening the doors.

The view was nice and it was only a short walk to the beach. However, the elevator gave lots of problems and I ended up stuck in it 3 times during the week. The phone in it did not work and I had to get the guys I was with to take the hinges off and get me out of it from the outside. Had I been alone, it would have been a terrible situation. I requested a repair or to be moved, but could never get a response from the Hatteras Realty office manager. ( And I have yet to hear from anyone concerning this issue, although it was documented by the maintenance and reservation staff).Therefore, if you have mobility issues, I would definitely consider a different property rental. Do not look for Hatteras Realty to help you out. I have stayed with them for years and this is not up to their usual customer service standards. A reply would have at least been nice.
Hi, Letha! Thank you for telling us about your experience. The homeowner replaced the door knob on the elevator the first day of your stay, and multiple staff members were able to operate it without difficulty during your visit. We do apologize if it caused you any stress and would be happy to help you find a rental better suited to your needs. Thank you!
