Waves house description


R&R IS THE WAY BEST USED TO DESCRIBED A HATTERAS ISLAND VACATION.. BOOK TODAY....!!!

~~~~FREE WIFI WHILE STAYING HERE !!!!

'LION IN THE SUN' I fell in love with this house the minute I saw it. I started making plans for it right away. We added the screened in porch and put a hot tub on it. We painted & did some redecorating and added TVs & VCRs to all of the bedrooms & some DVD players, and best of all we put in a private pool.

But I wanted to change the name Lion in the Sun... it sounded kind of silly to me, but I just couldn't come up with another one that suited me, so I wrote a note in our guest book and asked our guest to make some sugestions, and almost everyone that responded said that it was a grrreat name & was suited to the house. We have a lot of repeat guests and they all agreed that the changes that we made to the house were great, but that the name was already perfect so....LION IN THE SUN ...it is.

It really is a great vacation home on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. It is located just across the street from the Atlantic Ocean. It's in a very nice small subdivision called St. Waves that offers a swimming pool & tennis courts. But as I said before we also have a PRIVATE POOL WITH FREE SOLAR HEAT in back of the house,just waiting for you.

We furnish 5 TV's 5 VCR's a DVD player CD player puzzles & games, about a 100 movie videos & about 20 DVD's( some for all ages) & it has ceiling fans in most rooms. We have also added a crib & high chair for the little ones. The kitchen is nicely equipped & BED LINENS are FURNISHED It fronts a private lake and is just a few steps away from a boarded walkway to the large, beautiful ocean beach.

From the front decks of the house watch the sun come up over the ocean, and in the evening, from the back deck, or while sitting in the hot tub on the screened in porch you can see the sun dip into the sound, or anytime of the day go up to the crow's nest for a panoramic view of the island & the Atlantic Ocean.In the autumn watch as the ducks swim in the private lake just behind the house.

And what an island it is... for history buffs you can make short day trips to see the world-famous Hatteras Lighthouse or a ferry ride to Ocracoke Island. In the other direction to Roanoke Island to the Elizabethan Gardens and the outdoor drama 'The Lost Colony' Or, to Kitty Hawk to see the birthplace of flight and the 'Wright Brothers Memorial'.

But maybe your idea of the perfect vacation is swimming or surf fishing. There is also a fishing pier just a short drive from the house. Perhaps walks on the beach looking for shells or just 'LION IN THE SUN' and getting away for quality family fun.There is also KITE BOARDING very near.

We have left games and movies for all ages for you to use. We want you to feel welcome and at home so we try to make our vacation home as comfortable and as pretty as we can for you.

There are four bedrooms; two of the bedrooms are masters - one with a queen-size bed and a jetted tub and the other with a king-size bed. There are two sets of bunk beds in one of the other rooms and a set of twin beds in the other. You don't have to bring bed linens, the beds are already made for you after you drive.

So pack up the kids and grandma and grandpa and come on to the beach. If a quiet, relaxing vacation is what you have been needing and wanting, then 'LION IN THE SUN' is for you.
