Why choose the Frequent Flyer? Because the Frequent Flyer features four bedrooms, each with their own private bath and TV, two with private decks! This fully appointed vacation home boasts spacious living and dining areas, a cook-pleasing kitchen, and expansive decks for incredible views of the Pamlico Sound and breathtaking sunsets. You can access the Sound via a private grassy lawn to swim, fish or play using the owner-provided kayaks and standup paddleboards! The Atlantic Ocean is just a short walk with paved access all the way to the beach. There you can relax all day thanks to owner-provided chairs and umbrellas. There are no long paths across dunes to struggle with on this part of the island. You can stay connected with complimentary internet access or unplug and tour the villages on the owner-provided bikes. Sit back, relax and make your vacation a first class experience at the Frequent Flyer.


The Frequent Flyer from a Parent’s Perspective

If you’re like me, “family vacation” brings Chevy Chase and the Griswold’s to mind. Bored kids, an over-packed “family truckster” and expensive meals are just the beginning! I wanted to share why vacationing with my family at The Frequent Flyer takes the National Lampoon out of the equation and makes for not only great family fun but also a real vacation for me.

The ‘man cave’ (aka garage area) of The Frequent Flyer is packed with extras to keep everyone busy! From sand toys to bikes and Kayak’s to stand up paddleboards, the family will have plenty to do and you won’t have to pack, or worse rent, all of the toys that make life at the beach more fun. There are even beach chairs and beach umbrellas for the whole family!

From the best tanning deck on the house I can watch my kids play safely on the beach of the shallow-water Sound. They spend hours trying to catch hermit crabs and minnows while I catch up on my tan and favorite book.

Walkie-Talkies are available for the kids if they take a bike ride to the corner store so I can give them a little freedom but still keep in touch. And, the walkie-talkies work from the house to both the Ocean Beach and the Sound Beach for older kids.

The fully equipped kitchen means we can save a fortune on restaurant meals and my teenagers can eat their late night cereal and frozen pizza. We save buying the bulky but essential items such as napkins, tin foil, saran wrap, toilet paper, and cleaning supplies because the owner provides them as a convenience. And when you decide to eat out, the local restaurants are family friendly, reasonably priced and amazing.


The Frequent Flyer from a Watersport Enthusiast

The Frequent Flyer has a grassy 1 acre Soundfront lot, a perfect rigging area for every water sport. As a windsurfer and kiteboarder who has been coming to the Outer Banks for 30 years, there is no better Sound access on Hatteras Island. The winds from the S to NNE are ideal for kite and windsurf launching at the house. As winds go NE to SE, you can launch directly across the street on the Ocean side.

The house includes a ground floor enclosed ‘man cave’ plus a storage room for equipment. There are equipment racks outside for drying and inside to lock up at night. A half bath and two showers are outside under the house, in addition to a cleaning station with a utility sink and hose. We can clean up our gear so that it is ready the next day. Rigging, launching, and storing your gear is a breeze at the Frequent Flyer.

The ‘man cave’ also has a TV, small bar and a fridge which adds to the convenience factor. This house really caters to those who want access to the Sound and Ocean for watersports. When the wind is not blowing, the Frequent Flyer still delivers with 6 bikes for cruising the island, 3 kayaks, and 2 stand up paddle boards. And of course, no trip to Hatteras Island is complete without a visit to the local surf shops. Fortunately, Real Watersports, Kitty Hawk Kites, and other shops are all within a few miles.


The Frequent Flyer from a Fishing Perspective

Why settle for the Ocean or Sound when you can have them both! The Frequent Flyer is located on a very narrow segment of the island providing access to both Ocean and Sound fishing. If your target is inlet fishing, “Oregon Inlet” and the “New New Inlet” are just north of the Frequent Flyer.

Convenient storage areas make unloading and storing your gear simple. A deluxe, outdoor fish-cleaning table makes prep a breeze. Bring your casting net as bait can easily be caught along the shore of the Sound. If you prefer to buy bait, or need to update your fishing gear, several bait and tackle shops are just down the street including, Hatteras Jack.

Offshore Fishing Charters are available from nearby Oregon Inlet or head south to the Hatteras Inlet. The Frequent Flyer is a dream vacation spot for the avid fishing enthusiast and novices alike.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: The Frequent Flyer was named after the owner’s favorite pastime (well, he would argue it is not a pastime but a lifestyle) kiteboarding, and the way he earned his kiteboard time: traveling more than 1.5 million miles by air, working for an engineering company. An avid windsurfer from back in the early eighties, Mark started kiting in 2000 and quickly became an addict. He soon became a new type of Frequent Flyer, earning miles of airtime boosting, popping, jumping, and soaring over the Pamlico Sound.

              Why the Owner Chose Rodanthe:
              As his millions of Frequent Flyer miles dwindled, being used up on airfare from Cincinnati (CVG) to Norfolk (ORF), Mark realized it might be time to become a local in order to support his kite habit. In 2009, the family purchased the now Frequent Flyer. They hope that it is a fun vacation destination for families visiting the Outerbanks in the summer and a great spot for Kiters, especially Mark, in the windy off season.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              As a windsurfer and kiteboarder who has been coming to the OUter Banks for 30 years, there is no better Sound access for rigging and launching on Hatteras Island than what the Frequent Flyer offers. The spot is a dream come true for Mark and Frequent Flyer guests.
