Hatteras Village cottage description
Bimini Twist is a spectacular, family-friendly ocean side home. A very short walk from the beach, it has equally stunning views of a classic beach neighborhood - Summer Place - and the ever inviting Atlantic Ocean. Come relax and enjoy the updates that the new owners have added to this gem.
New tile and wood flooring have been added throughout the house, making it a clean, beach-friendly home. When not on the beach or in the large pool, enjoy Direct TV on the new 55 inch LCD HDTV in the vaulted family room. There are 4 additional LCD TV’s with DVD players– with HD service in each of the two master bedrooms. This home has wireless internet. Your active kids will enjoy the pool table in the game room, basketball goal on the large concrete drive, and family games played on our large lawn.
The cook will appreciate the well planned kitchen with breakfast bar and ocean side dining. For the adventurer, try the crab traps under home in the sound right across the street. Enjoy coffee on the screen porch's new dining bar and your evening watching the sunset on the south-facing deck in cedar Adirondack chairs. Of course, the stars over the ocean never looked brighter than from the 6 person hot tub on the 2nd floor deck!

The location could not be more perfect - a short walk or drive to everything. Great spot for a day trip to Ocracoke Island or just staying put. The views from every room are sensational. Our foreign guests were blown away.

Great Beach House!
Great Beach House!
This was our second visit to this house and once again we were very pleased! Kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to dine in or the area some great local restaurants. The house is spacious, clean, and well equipped with everything you need for a great family vacation! Pool and hot tub were clean and relaxing. The location is perfect - the house is on a quiet street so you can just relax and enjoy yourself, but when you are looking for some more excitement, it is very close to local restaurants, shops, ice cream, etc. Beach was beautiful and is just a short walk from the house. Our day trip to Ocracoke Island was great! We will definitely return to this home!

Manager response: So glad to hear you had another great stay at Bimini Twist!
Location of home is very good with close walk & nice view of ocean. Photos of interior top floor make the home appear to be more spacious than it actually is. The house sleeps 12 and we only had 10 people and it definitely was crowded. Our MAJOR concern was that the entire 2nd level has a very distinct mold/mildew odor that caused three family members to suffer from severe allergy symptoms. Another deficit is that the exterior decking should have steps leading to the pool area. This was extremely inconvenient when needing to use the restroom and the exterior doors are located on the other side of the house. I would NOT recommend this home nor would I rent it again. I sincerely believe the above issues need to be addressed and the rental price should be reflective of these deficiencies.

Manager response: Thank you! We too love our short walk to the beach and awesome views of the ocean. That is what brings visitors back to Bimini Twist each year. We are sorry you felt the upstairs was crowded. Between the screened in porch, covered porches, sun deck, seating by the pool and interior, we have always felt quite comfortable. Thank you for letting us know about the second floor problem . We had an HVAC issue, that has been addressed. How unfortunate you chose to suffer the whole week and then report the issue upon check out. Stairs added to the deck? Great idea! Thanks for the suggestion. As many seasoned beach vacationers know, climbing stairs is part of coming to the beach. It is the way of the land. The more stairs, the better the view!
We had a great time @ this weel furnished & beautifuly kept home. The home had ever thing you could ever need in a vacation home. The is walking distance to the ocean, sound & the Village. Will continue to come back every year during fishing tournament time.

Manager response: We love fishermen! So glad to have repeat renters.
this home is just right. you can hear and watch the waves crash from the decks. with the big sliders open you can hear and watch them from the dining room table and the huge sofa too. perfect place for reading a book, watching a movie, taking a nap... we loved the layout of the home, with multiple decks, there is plenty of room for big family gatherings, but plenty of room for everyone to escape and have some quiet time too. it's nice to be able to walk to the village and wonderful to be so close to ocracoke. the ferry is free and it's the perfect way to spend an afternoon. plan to take the return ferry at sunset. it's breathtaking. the kitchen had everything we needed to cook up local seafood and then some. everything about this home feels just right and the owners are completely delightful.

Manager response: The local seafood is a treat and it is very easy to get spoiled with the choices of fresh fish every night. My favorite thing to do in the house is exactly that- lay back and relax with the views and the family.
This is a lovely beach house. It is comfortable, attractive and very conveniently located--an easy walk to the beach and to local restaurants. And it was also very enjoyable to walk around the little neighborhood and enjoy the varied architecture. The views from every window are noteworthy. Everything was clean and well-kept. There was a very nice flat screen tv in every room, which kept the children occupied when we were busy with other things. We hope to come back!

About: We have traveled many places, near and far. But our favorite location is the beach. We are the most relaxed here. The time together as a family being active outdoors is important to us, so is getting away from the noise of every day life. The fishing, the beaches, the sound, the laid back lifestyle of a fishing village is what drew us here. We do not go on vacation to shop. There are no outlets, no fast food chains, no shopping malls. There are some super local restaurants and many outdoor places to explore and things to do. We can't wait to try all the different water sports in the sound.
Why Hatteras Village:
Hatteras Village is a Destination. You travel here to get away and enjoy unspoiled beaches, views and get a sense of living in beach community. It is not canned and it is not an attraction. It is real. The fishing is awesome and we love to catch it, cook it and bring it home!! Our boys are active. The sound is a big draw for all the variety of water sports it offers.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our beach house is a ONE minute walk to the beach. For third row house, that is a huge draw. We have views of the ocean and the sound. We love our open floor plan with many windows and long range views. The kids can safely walk to the beach, or to their favorite lunch place, The Hatterasman, by themselves. They can even walk to the grocery store . Where else can you do that? The fishing is truly amazing here. Between catching crabs in the sound and fish in the ocean, being lazy on the beach, or suiting up for water sports in the Sound, you can be as busy or as rested as you want to be.
