Property description

Please note that from May through September, we only rent full week, Saturday to Saturday rentals, or partial weeks, but must conform to the Saturday to Saturday timeframe.

$685 plus tax for three-night stay in off-season! Only $700 plus tax for an entire week in off season until 5/22!! Tinker's Toy is an oceanside house in Waves on Hatteras Island on the Outer Banks of NC, seven houses from the oceanfront. Waves is a small, unspoiled village not far from Nags Head. The beaches are wide and are never crowded, perfect for families, fishing, surfing, sailing, etc.

Tinker's Toy has 3 bedrooms, sleeping 6, one a master with a queen bed, another with a queen bed and a third with a queen bed. All rooms are colorfully and thematically decorated, with attention to detail (i.e., hairdryers in the bathrooms, artwork in all rooms). There are 2 full and 1 half ceramic-tiled bathrooms, 5 ceiling fans, two large great rooms, a spacious dining room with a cathedral ceiling, a fireplace, and a wet bar. See the Midgett Realty website (go to Tinker's Toy) for many more photos of the house. Sorry NO PETS.

The first level has a large deck, with ample deck furniture; the second level has built-in seating and a spacious hot tub, facing the ocean. A well-equipped kitchen includes a refrigerator with icemaker, stove, dishwasher, microwave, many cooking gadgets and ample dishes, serving pieces, and cookware, and cookbook library. There are several other nice touches: wireless internet, a highchair, DVD library, 5 TVs and DVDs, a mini fridge in the upstairs wet bar, a fish cleaning table, a charcoal grill, washer and dryer, and an answering machine. The house sits on a 1/4 acre lot, so it is very private, on a quiet street. There are ocean and sound views from the second level deck and sound views from the first level deck, as well.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Tinker's Toy is available for rent for 3, etc. days in the off season. Call Midgett Realty to find out the exact rate. NOTE: VRBO's rate listing is NOT accurate for calculating a less-than week's rental: the rate they post is based on a one-night stay for a week's rental, in the off-season. The three-night stay rate, off-season, is $685 plus tax. Rates: Call Midgett Realty at 855-291-9844 for total rates, which are based on the week during the year, seasonally.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2000

About: We are a retired couple (from the Dept. of Veterans Affairs in Washington, DC), moved to Elizabeth City, NC, in 2004, and bought an historic home to restore. After restoring the house, it is now a bed and breakfast -- the Grice-Fearing House B&B, offering two suites with Jacuzzis. We often travel to our beach house in Waves, NC -- Tinker's Toy -- to relax and unwind. We have two grown sons, one an artist, and the other a musician. We are active in local committees, particularly interested in historic preservation activities.

Why Waves:
The Outer Banks has wonderful beaches. Waves is a small village on Hatteras Island, which is still unspoiled and very serene. The beaches are very wide and are never crowded. Additionally, the lots on which houses are built are large (1/4 acre), so there is a lot of privacy. Ocean temps are warm even in early fall months. Waves has shops, restaurants, and outdoor activities to offer -- it's a small, charming village.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Tinker's Toy is a great place to unwind and relax and enjoy the beach. Offering ocean and sound views on the second level, and sound views on the first level, it offers two great rooms for guests to spread out -- it is a spacious house. There are 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a well-equipped kitchen, and many amenities, including a hot tub, fireplace, books and DVDs, 5 TVs with DVDs, 4 ceiling fans, central AC and heat, a wet bar, a fish cleaning table, a highchair, wireless internet, and an answering machine. Washer/dryer, all appliances, of course. Very well decorated. Because we love to cook, the kitchen is extremely well equipped, even boasting a cookbook library! Our favorite activity (besides going to the beach) is relaxing in the hot tub, under the stars!
