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.
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.
