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. An escape to the cape never looked so good as at Cottages at the Cape.

Great location!
Jean-Baptiste B. Jan 2022
Well located, close to the beach, convenient, clean, well furnished and kitchen well equipped. easy to check-in and check-out. Soap, towels, dishwasher are supplied. However several taps are leaking. I estimate approx. 5 gallons of clean water are wasted every day !! Please review and change the joints ASAP!! Mattress are quite used and soft/slaked. Entrance lock is hard to open.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Jean-Baptiste! Your feedback is greatly appreciated. The leaking taps are getting replaced, and we have asked the homeowner to replace the mattresses and entrance lock. Thanks again!

We stayed in Clownfish during our week stay.
Pros: close to the beach, very affordable, quiet
Cons: the worst part is how uncomfortable the beds are, only one tv in one of the bedrooms and it's small, sandspears everywhere and when I say everywhere I don't mean just outside (in the carpet inside and my boyfriend got one in his butt in the bed), I don't have kids but the playground was overran with grass and weeds
This is the 2nd time I have stayed at Cottages at the Cape, they have went down over the years, they could be great if given the right care and attention.

This 2 BR unit is a part of the old Coast Guard station. This particular unit was the closest to the ocean (a 5 minute walk) and also had a beautiful view of the Hatteras Light House. The unit showed it's age, however, as it appeared to need repairs to the screened-porch door, the railing to the back steps and to the light on the same steps. Outdoor plastic furniture is used for the dining room and kitchen table and not very comfortable. House did not appear to have been deep cleaned yet for the season and there was no functional BBQ grill available to use. Internet was functional, but there were problems associated with the security system used by Hatteras Realty which made it very difficult for us to use a few of our devices which could not be connected.
Manager response:

We sincerely appreciate your feedback and have forwarded this information to the local staff so they can ensure these concerns do not happen to future guests.

As always, our guest services team is available to assist guests 24 hours a day should they need anything. We hope you choose to stay with us again!
