Spend a week in our oceanfront Cabana, 'Quality Time' and experience the wonders of Cape Hatteras at your doorstep. Relax on our roof top deck under the brightest stars you will ever see or take a sunrise walk and watch the dolphins swim in the surf.
Quality Time is one of 40 free standing Studios providing you a little slice of paradise on the beach. Our queen size Sleep Number Bed will ensure you get a good nights sleep and if you have the kiddies or a buddy along, the sofa bed is comfy too.
Dan and I love to cook so the kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals or entertain. The local restaurants are wonderful too with fresh local seafood.
'Quality Time Too', is our 19' Center Console Fishing Boat perfect for fun on the sound side. She is available for rent by contacting Big Wave Dave at Outer Banks Boat Rentals. Dave will bring the boat down to you and pick it up when you leave. There are plenty of boat slips available at the nearby marinas.
QT is small so we have done everything to utilize the space as efficiently and artistically as possible. It's very cheerful, clean and well, it's just beachy. We've had lots of honeymooners and many repeat visitors over the years to rave reviews. We think you will be very happy at Quality Time to.

Perfect Little Getaway
Perfect Little Getaway
My boyfriend and I had an amazing vacation. The cabana was PERFECT for us and our needs. Quaint, well stocked, beautifully decorated, excellent beach access were huge pluses. Minus food and personables, they had just about everything we needed (except a vegetable peeler, which really isn't a big deal, but I just don't like skin on my mashed potatoes!). The owners, Dan and Susan were amazing, too. They were patient with my numerous questions and emails, and when we hit a snag upon check-in, the situation was handled quickly and professionally. We caught a bunch of fish right from the shore, built a beautiful fire, rode horses with Equine Adventures, and ate dinner at Breakwater and Dinky's to name a few. We are refreshed and content, and most definitely super excited about renting here again.

This cabana was very nice, small, but a great use of space. It was perfect for just me and my husband. We enjoyed our quiet, relaxing vacation.

The condo was exactly what we expected. There was just enough room for the two of us. We were able to walk to the beach and fish in just a few minutes. The area restaurants were great.

Great location and the cabana is kept up beautifully. It's perfect for having that little place on the beach that you can go back and forth to and enjoy a real beach loving vacation. The owners are great to deal with. Pros: Location- just a quick walk to the beach. Close to Hatteras ferry, inlet and restaurants.; Kept up nicely- nice cookware, dishes and supplies. Bathroom nice size for smaller place. Living furniture nice and comfy. Rooftop deck and chairs awesome!; Parking is private and covered which keeps car cool; There's a hose to rinse off when you first get off of the beach and at the house which is great! Cons: Kitchen table and chairs don't stack together so if you've got 4 people and are using pull out couch it's difficulty to find places to put them except in your walking areas and in kitchen; Smaller appliances because it's a smaller place (so just know this when you're packing and planning meals); Bath mats and floor mats not provided so sand travels all over hardwood floors and is everywhere (just keep their provided broom handy or bring your own mats/towels to lay down). Overall: This place was a great value for it's location in OBX. I would definitely recommend it!

Owner response: So glad you had a great time in Hatteras! Thank you for the great suggestions. We are always looking for ways to improve the vacation experience. I will definitely add bath matt and rug to the list of must brings. We used to have rugs but found it impossible to keep clean in the sandy environment so we removed them. So sorry you were not able to drop the leaves in the table, I will make sure table instructions are added to the info booklet we supply for guests to avoid this issue in the future. Thank you for choosing Quality Time for your vacation. Susan and Dan Beard
We stayed at Quality Times the week of 7/14/12. It was a wonderful week. The cabana was perfect for the two of us. Very clean and stocked with everything that we needed. Comfortable bed. Good location on a great section of the beach. It never seemed crowded at the beach. I would definitely go back. The cabanas are a good size for 2 adults. I do not think I would want to be in one with 4 adults. The family in the neighboring cabana had 3 small children and two parents and I would think that was crowded and not relaxing. The complex is ocean front, but this unit is not ocean front. It was about the 5th or 6th unit from the ocean front. If an ocean front view is important to you, this may not be the cabana for you. We had dinner at a number of good restaurants in the area. Dinky 's was our favorite, but we did not have anything to eat that wasn't good. The red & white grocery store was convenient and served our needs. We brought some non-perishables from home and went to the grocery for breakfast and lunch items.

We had a great time. The ocean is right there and beautiful. The cabana was great. Very clean. Everything you would need in the kitchen. Loved the two decks. People very friendly there. Take the free ferry to Ocracoke. The beaches are beautiful. Found almost a whole sand dollar not broken. Had a great time.

We had a wonderful time in our Cabana. It is decorated perfectly....an ocean beach theme. The sleep number bed was wonderful. As the description of the property indicates, there is no direct ocean view, but the beach is a 1 minute walk over the dune. The kitchen was well appointed, the bathroom very nice. After having camped at Hatteras for many years, we can't tell you how wonderful it was to come off the beach to air conditioning and a shower!

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: I have family in Hatteras and have been going to Hatteras since I was a small child. My husband Dan was raised on a finger lake in NY so we both have a love of the water. We stayed at the Cabanas in the summer of 2006 and were hooked. We had 4 units filled with family and friends and enjoyed the privacy of the individual units over the big beach houses we had rented before. We bought #32 on my birthday later that same year. We feel that time with family and friends is so important and when you combine that with sunny skies and endless beaches the name Quality Time just fits. We just got Quality Time Too, our 19ft Center Console boat last summer and it added a new dimension to our vacation. We offer a 10% discount on boat rentals if you are our guest at Quality Time. Dan and I love fishing and Hatteras offers a of variety of options. Surf casting from the beach has provided many lunches of Trout, Pompano, Puppy Drum, Flounder etc. There are head boats and charters a plenty. Our favorite is the Stormy Petrel. It is huge and can take the whole family out deep sea fishing.
Why the Owner Chose Hatteras Village:
Dan proposed to me on one knee at the top of Hatteras Lighthouse in 1997 before it was moved. This area holds so many special memories for us and we hope your time here will enrich your lives as much as it has ours.
The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Driving on the beach is too much fun!! It's a must do if you have a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Beach combing, horseback riding on the beach, kite surfing, kayaking, did i mention driving on the beach?? Fishing, driving on the beach and camp fires require permits so please follow the local laws governing these activities.
