Property description

Turning Point, a Terrific Hatteras Rental.

Turning Point is located in the quiet, picturesque Brigands' Bay neighborhood that has scenic views, gnarled old live oak trees, Pamlico Sound access, and is friendly to walkers, bikers, kayakers, kids, and even dogs.

We don’t have any fancy stuff -- no hot tub, pool, game room, home theater, or video library.

We do have a comfortable, homey Hatteras beach cottage that is light and airy with warm juniper paneled walls and a cathedral ceiling in the great room. The rooms are large, and the furnishings are tasteful. You won’t feel crowded here.

The large great room has sliding glass doors that open onto a deck and onto a large, furnished screened porch. The big kitchen with its counters and “island” bar is very well stocked with everything you will need for your stay.

There are three bedrooms and two full baths. Master bedroom and bath are downstairs and two bedrooms, with another bath in between, open onto an upstairs balcony.

There is a large, new LED flat screen TV (just one!) with cable and Wi-Fi service and shelves of books, games, and jigsaw puzzles.

You can fish and crab from the dock on the canal with its fish-cleaning table and bench.
You can tie up your boat at the dock and have access to the Pamlico Sound for more fishing, crabbing, and clamming, or just exploring the shore. There is also a two-person kayak at the house for exploring the Pamlico Sound.

We cater to folks who want to come “and sit a while.” Turning Point is affordable for those who want to come and stay for several weeks – or even months. The basic weekly rental is among the most reasonable around. It’s just that -- a basic rental charge with taxes and a modest pet fee as the only additional charges. No reservation fees, deposits, or anything else. And there is a discount if you rent for more than one week.

Come to Turning Point and enjoy the laid-back island lifestyle at its best – for as long as you can stay.

Turning Point is a Shore Details house. Not only will the folks at Shore Details make sure your house is clean when you check in and clean up after you, but they are also available to help with any maintenance problems during your stay. In addition, through the company’s Concierge Service, you can have groceries stocked before you arrive, have a pre-cooked dinner delivered to your cottage, arrange for catering for parties, rent linens, find a babysitter, or plan your excursions – charter fishing, eco-tours, sunset cruises, or anything else you want during your stay.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1983

About the owner: The year 1983 was actually the year that I purchased property in Brigands' Bay. In December, 1989, just before a record-breaking blizzard at the seashore, the pilings for the house were put in. The cottage was completed in March, 1990. I had been coming to Hatteras Island since the mid-'70s, since my two children were youngsters. I'd always wanted a house here and now I had one. It's beautiful, and I'm still proud of it. Ironically, I have never lived in it. The year after the cottage was completed, I had a real Turning Point in my life. I left my job as an editor at a big city newspaper in Louisville, Ky., got married to a Hatteras islander moved to the seashore. I live on the same street as Turning Point in my husband's house. My two children who grew up knowing nothing but Hatteras beach vacations are now adults and the summers at Hatteras tradition continues with my nine grandchildren. The oldest is 16, and the youngest is 5, and they love Hatteras and Brigands' Bay just as much as their grandmother and parents. We have built many family memories here.

Why the Owner Chose Frisco:
Brigands' Bay is, in my view, Hatteras Island's premier waterfront neighborhood. It is a true neighborhood, a mixture of permanent residents and rentals, all well maintained. The neighborhood of canals and creeks and marsh and gnarled liveoaks is the best place to enjoy all that Hatteras has to offer. It's right in the middle of the lovely Cape Hatteras National Seashore with easy access to beaches, fishing, the Hatteras charter boat fleet, the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, surfing, windsurfing, hiking trials in the Buxton Woods Maritime Forest, and many, many other recreational opportunities.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Turning Point is located on a picturesque canal with direct access to the Pamlico Sound. You can sit on the bench at the dock and fish and crab or if you have a boat, you can tie it up here and have easy access for the sound for more fishing and crabbing opportunities, clamming, water sports, or just seeing the sights. It's quiet and it's peaceful, the way a Hatteras vacation should be.
