Waves house description
Welcome to 'Tranquility', your escape to the Outer Banks for a fun, relaxing vacation in the heart of Hatteras Island. Located in the Village of Waves, this Saturday to Saturday rental has direct access to the Atlantic Ocean and the Pamlico Sound. Whether you are looking for world class fishing, incredible surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing galore, or just wish to relax on the beach, our home will bring you peace and 'Tranquility'
Our home offers 3 bedrooms, 1 and 1/2 baths, and a large outside enclosed hot/cold shower with attached changing area. Bedroom #1 has a queen bed, 1/2 bath attached and TV. Bedroom #2 has a full size bed. Bedroom #3 has twin size bunk beds, a sleeper sofa, also a TV, VCR, DVD player and a small stereo. The living room has a large flat screen TV with DVD and stereo. Balcony has a reading desk and library of books. There is a separate laundry room with a full size washer and dryer. The living room has a large cathedral ceiling and skylights to fill the house with sunlight during the day. The front deck has built in chairs with tables and is large enough for private sunning. The screened-in back porch has a
wet bar, ice machine, and deck chairs great for relaxing after a fun filled day to watch the sun set over the sound. There is a fish cleaning table with two sinks and running water. Top it off with a large charcoal picnic grill and you will call this your 'home away from home!' We vacation here ourselves, so it is maintained pristinely to the highest standards.
Known for it's prevailing southwest winds, Hatteras Island offers windsurfing and kitesurfing conditions like no other. The surf has incredible breaks for surfers of all abilities. If fishing is your fancy, it is available on multiple levels, including surf-fishing, pier-fishing, and offshore or inshore charters. You can also bring your own boat, launch it for free and keep it here on our property. If you like to drive on the beach, there are multiple entrance ramps available for your 4x4 vehicle.
Walking to the ocean or sound takes just minutes. Leave your car in the driveway and discover the fun filled activities just a short walk away. At the end of the street is a watersports shop, where kayaks, jet-skis, windsurfers, surfboards, and kiteboards are all available for rent. Never tried any of these? They offer lessons to all levels as well. There is a Dairy Queen directly at the end of our road where you can enjoy an ice cream sundae after a hearty dinner at either of 2 restaurants only 1 block away.
Regardless of where you have vacationed in the past, 'Tranquility Cottage' will offer you and your family a peaceful and relaxing environment. We hope you will want to return year after year.

Relax in the sand and surf of this Waves cottage
The house is EXACTLY as represented on this site - in fact, better! We just came back from a wonderful, sun and beach filled week. The house was extremely clean upon arrival, and had more than enough room for us all. The kitchen is fully equipped, and had everything we needed and more! The outdoor shower was a nice extra to get the sand off from the beach prior to entering the house - in fact, I used it all week to take my normal showers. It just felt so great to be outdoors! The beach is literally a 5 minute walk, and the ice machine in the screened in porch made it really easy to pack up the cooler with lunch and beverages to bring down to the beach where we relaxed all day long. Thomas (owner) was such a pleasure to deal with, and even called the day after our arrival to ensure we got there safely and see if we had any questions. The whole renting process was extremely easy and comfortable with Thomas. The only problem we had was not being able to stay longer. Will definitely be back! Thanks Thomas!

This house is a true gem. From the fantastic ground floor enclosed outdoor shower (with MUCH appreciated hot water), the screened in porch with the wet bar and ice maker, to the open deck on the front of the house- the outside is fabulous. The inside of the home is very bright and sunny thanks to the skylights in the living room, it's nice to lay on the couch and look up to see the clouds passing by. For the kitchen, I honestly believe that there are more gadgets and utensils in this home than I have in my own which was a pleasant surprise. The bedrooms are nicely decorated and the beds are extremely comfortable, all of which comfortably accommodated a family of six. The beach is no more than a five minute walk away with beach access easily available. I found this home to be in great condition as well as being immaculately clean and I would definitely recommend staying here. When staying here definitely check out the Dairy Queen down the street as well as Lisa's Pizzeria which has free delivery after 4pm. As for the owner, you could not ask for a better person to deal with when it comes to Mr. Ramsin and I appreciate his kindness as well as his promptness in answering/returning phone calls. I look forward to staying here in the future!
