W I N D C H I M E S We are in the sand and we love it. A small but comfortable cottage affordable for the single family. You won't get this kind of beach and sound access anywhere but Rodanthe.
THAT BLUE IS THE OCEAN!! WE'RE IN THE SAND! HEAR AND SEE THE SURF!
(You do not need a 4 wheel drive to access)
NOW BOOKING SUMMER 2015... 6 WEEKS LEFT....
We are next to a long undeveloped property allowing for UNOBSTRUCTED OCEAN VIEWS AND ACCESS the likes of which you will be hard pressed to find at these rates anywhere on the east coast. Step off the new deck, and you are 80 feet to your beach blanket.
Wind Chimes has been lifted off the sand, two ocean front windows added, painted throughout with new furniture and décor. Thoughtful features have been included to maximize our space.
Please note: VRBO has gone to an automated rate system and the rate they show is incorrect. Please call for rates. I will fix this as soon as I figure out how to. Rates include bed linens
Your rates for this view and access are unprecedented. WHY? Because Wind Chimes is a “One back” -with a cottage in front (though staggered to the right)– AND is a modest size (1,000 square feet). We want you to be delighted with Wind Chimes - Please – Six person maximum.
This home is perfect for those who want fabulous beach views and access without climbing multiple flights of stairs to the living areas. Only 14 steps and you are inside.
If you are somewhat adventurous email owner to book November-March - the weather can be quite eventful.
Please respect our dune, stay on the paths to the beach.
VRBO just changed the way my rates are viewed. I have not figured out how to fix it yet. No weeks open for summer at this time.

Although we are considered a 'one-back' we are still on the sand. The beach past the cottage in front. is only 80 feet from our step. The cottages are staggered and no cottage next door, allowing for huge ocean views.
Year Purchased: 2010
About: We are a family of 5 - John and I have 2 gorgeous sons - 30 and 28 (the 28 year old is often mistaken for Ryan Gosling) and a lovely 18 year old daughter.
We love swimming, kayaking, walking and running on the beach, collecting sea shells and chilling.
The Jameson family loves remodeling and renovation projects, and had a blast updating this adorable cottage.
Why Rodanthe: John and Marti were inspired to purchase Wind Chimes for its unique quality - Although a Small Cottage, it has fabulous beach access and views. Most beach lots with such great views and access would have a much larger house at a much larger price tag. Wind Chimes is perfect for smaller gatherings.
While the Google map shows Wind Chimes as 2 back from the ocean, in the volatile world of the OBX it is now a 1 back. You can see on the map the long lot to the north, which is undeveloped - allowing for jaw-dropping views and access.
Marti and John love Hatteras Island for its large natural preserves and love Rodanthe especially for its unparalleled views and water access. Hatteras Island is so narrow in Rodanthe, that you can walk to and see both the ocean and the sound from Wind Chimes. John and Marti felt a need for a cozy cottage to delight smaller groups - and are sensitive to super-active guests and older ones who feel stifled by multiple flights of stairs - 14 steps from sand to kitchen.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: If you like a beach just busy enough to be interesting, but want enough space so that no one is ever close enough to hear your conversations, this is for you. There are surfers and dolphins year-round to watch, swim or fish in the surf, shop, or make Tie-Dyes like we did. Take a walk or jog up the beach, past the newly-located 'Nights in Rodanthe' Inn. Visit the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum down island. You can be as busy or lazy as you want. This is NOT Ocean City, MD - if you crave auto congestion, high-rises, and McDonald's, this is NOT for you.
