                    Fabulous beach all year round! The beach is Cape Hatteras National Seashore. It is protected and managed by the National Park Service. The beach topography changes year round with tides and currents. Usually it is very wide with a nice gentle slope and hard, compact, sand at low tide makes for perfect walking. Beach fires are allowed with a free permit by stopping by the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse National Park Office. This beach is very safe, clean, beautiful beach. It is sparsly populated year round and the wildlife is amazing. ...moreless

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: My husband and I bought the Lost Shaker of Salt in February, 2007. We started running the property as a vacation rental by owner in 2008. We live three hours away and go there regularly ourselves. Mike is in retail and I (Erin) am in computers. We are a thirty something couple. We love the Jimmy Buffett lifestyle. We love music, cocktails on the top deck, and having a great time. We are pround memebers of the Parrothead Club of Tidewater. We wanted our cabana to be relaxing, fun, and cheerful, all at the same time. We think we accomplished that at the Lost Shaker of Salt. Come check us out, we know you will be pleased!

                      Why the Owner Chose Hatteras Village:
                      Mike and I got married up the beach in Kill Devil Hills seven years ago and ever since it has been our dream of owning a piece of our own paradise.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      We love our little place. We want you to have a nice stay there as well. We try to make your experience as memorable and hassle free as possible. We provide many little 'perks' you are just not going to find at big rental companies. We are constantly adding new features and amenities to make your and our trip more fun, and travels to go smoothly.
