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 four-bedroom condo with two-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 living room is a great place to enjoy a movie night with friends and family after a fun day on the beach. The central AC will keep the home nice and cool on those hot summer days, and the free WiFi will make it easy to research a new beach adventure. An escape to the cape never looked so good as at Cottages at the Cape.

    We loved staying in the Whelk. Easy access to the house, awesome enclosed storage area with a chest freezer and comfortable accommodations made our stay very enjoyable. We could see the ocean and the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse from the comfort of the screened-in back porch.

    We loved the location.
    Manager response:
    Nancy, We are disappointed to read that your recent experience was not satisfactory. We will continue to work with both our local staff and homeowner to make improvements to this home, and we hope you'll give us a second chance to impress you!

    Proximity to the beach was nice and plenty of space in the home.

    Excellent rental services. Houses are clean, well supplied, and extremely helpful before and during stay. Highly recommend.

    So close to the beach and the lighthouse, just what we wanted. Rooms were clean, kitchen well equipped, and everything worked just fine.

    We were a little put off at first by some cleaning issues, but these were immediately rectified. The location of this gem has an unobstructed ocean view, it's very quiet, and we had more than enough room for our gang. I slept nearly every night on the back porch where I was lulled to sleep by the waves and comforted by that big black and white striped night light nearby! I would definitely put this home in my list of return favorites!

    Location and walk to beach. Lots of space and kitchen storage.
