Recent Buxton guest reviews

We loved our stay in this house and would definitely stay again. Loved the deck and fenced in yard, so nice. We were provided lots of towels, which was so nice. The house had everything we needed!

Our recent stay at Spot at Cape in Cape Hatteras left us with mixed feelings. While there were certainly highlights to celebrate, including the overall charm of the house and its ideal location, some notable drawbacks prevented us from fully embracing our vacation. Let's start with the positives. The house itself exuded a cozy coastal vibe, welcoming us with open arms from the moment we stepped through the door. The interior was tastefully decorated, creating a relaxing atmosphere that perfectly complemented our beach getaway. Additionally, the location couldn't have been better. Situated in the heart of Cape Hatteras, we were treated to breathtaking views and easy access to all the area had to offer. One of the standout features of our rental was the park for kids nearby. This added amenity provided endless hours of entertainment for our little ones, allowing them to burn off energy and make new friends in a safe and enjoyable environment. It was a definite highlight of our trip and contributed to many cherished memories. However, our experience was marred by a few notable issues that detracted from our overall enjoyment. The most concerning issue was the condition of the carpet on the stairs. Covered in sharp spikes from the surrounding grass, it made ascending barefoot a painful experience for both adults and children alike. This was a significant inconvenience and detracted from the comfort we expected during our stay. Furthermore, our enjoyment was further dampened by the presence of cockroaches within the house. Encountering two or three of these unwelcome guests was not only unsettling but also raised concerns about the cleanliness and maintenance of the property. Despite bringing this issue to the attention of Vacasa, we were disappointed by the lack of response or action taken to address our concerns. In conclusion, our stay at Spot at Cape was a tale of highs and lows. While we appreciated the charm of the house and the convenience of its location, the issues with the carpet and the presence of cockroaches left a sour taste in our mouths. We hope that Vacasa will take our feedback seriously and address these issues to ensure a more pleasant experience for future guests.

Where is Buxton, NC?

These beautiful beach homes sit on Hatteras Island, just off the coast of North Carolina in a group of beloved, vacationable islands called the Outer Banks. Hatteras is one of the longest islands in the U.S., spanning 50 miles, much of which is made up of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. That means that the beaches here are undeveloped and beautifully pristine. You’ll find our Buxton beach house rentals on the southern end of Hatteras Island, near the iconic Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. 

Things to do near our Buxton vacation rentals

If you’re looking for a laid-back place to feel the sand between your toes—where you can forget the noise of traffic or alarm clocks—then you’re in the right place. Things move slower in the Outer Banks, and that’s exactly why they hold a special place in the hearts of so many vacationers. Our Buxton vacation rentals are a great place to hit the beach, to taste local seafood dishes, and to find some peace and tranquility. 

The Outer Banks have long been cited as home to some of the best beaches around. Buxton in particular was named one of the Top 10 Beaches in the U.S. by Dr. Beach, a pseudonym for coastal ecologist and author Dr. Stephen Leatherman. Experience for yourself its soft sand and warm, dazzling blue waves with a Buxton beach house rental. These shores are perfect for windsurfing, swimming, shell-hunting, and long, leisurely strolls.

A visit to the Cape Hatteras Light is a must. It’s the tallest brick lighthouse in the U.S. and the second-tallest in the world. The striking black-and-white striped column is a cultural landmark among locals—not to mention the perfect backdrop for a family photo. Next to the lighthouse you’ll find the Museum of the Sea, where history buffs can learn about the island’s maritime and natural history.

You won’t find many chain restaurants and stores near our Buxton vacation rentals. Instead you can take in the charming local establishments, like Buxton Village Books: an indie bookstore with both new and old books, plus art supplies and journals for when you’re feeling inspired by the beauty around you. Or visit Uncle Eddy’s Frozen Custard—choose from 12 delicious rotating flavors before playing a game of mini-golf at the course located just outside. And no trip to Buxton is complete without indulging in an “apple ugly” at Orange Blossom Bakery and Cafe. These deep-fried goodies may look strange, but who could say no to their ingredients: doughnut dough, apples, and cinnamon?

If your ideal vacation is gentle waves, soft sands, and an easy-going atmosphere, then you’re in luck. Our Buxton vacation rentals are perfect for family reunions, friends’ beach trips, romantic getaways, and more. Check out our collection of homes today and choose your favorite.
