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). This is an excellent two-bedroom condo with one-and-a-half baths. The interior has been professionally-decorated with comfortable and fun beach décor. You'll have access to an outside shower and a patio, and there are plenty of appliances, counter space, and cabinet storage in the full kitchen. The screened-in porch is ideal for entertaining guests and enjoying your first cup of coffee in the morning. The living room is a great place to enjoy a movie night with friends and family after a fun day on the beach. An escape to the cape never looked so good as at Cottages at the Cape.

Location was the best.

We rented the Turtle for a family vacation and had a great time. The location is amazing, very quick walk to the beach and cool views of the lighthouse! We spent lots of time on the screened in back deck which had nice beach views. The condo itself is quite spacious but a little dated and sterile feeling and could use some cosmetic updates (i.e., new blinds, hole in wall of the upstairs bathroom). Overall a great place to spend a vacation, we had a wonderful time.
Manager response:

We will be sure to pass your suggestions regarding the updates needed along to our local manager who will work with our homeowner to make necessary upgrades and repairs. We look forward to hosting you again!

Nothing special about this place, mattresses in desperate need of replacing. Entire place could use some attention.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Cindy! We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. We will work with our team to identify areas for improvement. We look forward to hosting you again!

Very minimal furnishings. I understand it is a beach house but the little things that make is seem like home. Like having a small trash can in each room and in the laundry room, or at least a picture in the bedrooms. This house looks like a college rental with bare bones and it has quite a bit of wear and tear that make it look like there have been a few frat parties in here. There were several of the blinds missing slats, and some are bent. Most of them do not properly fit the window and are too short. It looks cheap. There is water damage in the ceilings in a few places. A nice size hole in the bathroom where it looks like there was a towel rack at some time., as well as a random divot in the wall. There is missing trim from one of the kitchen cabinets. The lamp shades are fabric and quite dusty. The dangling front plate on the toaster oven that just looks tacky. The lock is loose and you have to jiggle the key just right to get the door to unlock. This is advertised as a “beautiful resort village”. No. Take this rental out of the listings for a little while and tend to things like the water damage and holes in the walls, get rid of the ratty blinds and fix the lock.
Manager response:
Hi, Lisa! Your feedback is so appreciated and helpful. The property manager is taking care of the placing trash cans throughout the home and addressing the toaster oven and lamp shades. The sheet rock will be taken care of by the homeowner. Thank you!

Great location! Needs some cosmetic updates. All and all great place to stay for the price and location
Hilly B. Mar 2021
it was really really good.... most importantly it was nice and clean! sheets crispy fresh... enough cooking utensils which was helpful... love the views, the comfort of a screened porch, the quiet so we could hear the waves, location is perfectly near grocery, gas, and sites. i’d give it at 4.5 a few additions would have made it perfect!!!

You can see Cape Hatteras Light and the beach from master bedroom and the back deck. Short walk to the beach and an easy 3/4 to 1 mile walk to the lighthouse.
