Wind is common on Hatteras Island and the Sound is most always dotted with kites and sails of all colors.
Water sport shops located close by. Some within walking distance.

Start your morning with a cup of coffee on the crows nest in one of the swings. The stage is always set for a perfect sunrise over the Atlantic. After a day on the water, end it with a cocktail in the same seat looking over the Pamlico Sound where you'll see some of the most spectacular sunsets on the planet. Bring your camera...moments like this you'll want to share with friends and family back home.

Enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner on the spacious 8' x 24' screened-in porch or in the kitchen area just meant for sharing meals with friends and/or family.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: Sandy and Skip started vacationing on Hatteras on in the early seventies. They immediately knew, this is where they wanted to retire! In 1999. their dream came true! They relocated from Northern Virginia to Waves and built the home of their dreams. After living on the island for a short time, an opportunity to purchase a neighbor's well maintained home was presented to them. Jumping on the chance, they named their 2nd home 'Like Nothing Else'.

                  Why the Owner Chose Waves:
                  'We love Waves and the friendly atmosphere of the tri-village communities', says Sandy and Skip. They found their home in Waves. No doubt you will, too!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Soon after Sandy and Skip purchased 'Like Nothing Else', they began updating the home with new appliances, bedding, etc., and are continuing to redecorate keeping it fresh and new. 'Like Nothing Else' sets on a quiet well maintained street within walking distance of restaurants. The large screened-in porch allows guests to enjoy the ocean breeze no matter what time of year it si. The covered 'crows nest' lends a spectacular view of both the ocean and the sound.
