  • A Wonderful House in a Great Location

    "Our family group of 12 stayed at Whispering Sands over Thanksgiving, 2012. We had one of our best vacations ever, due mainly to our accommodations. The house is huge, super clean and very well arranged. Every bedroom has a full bath. This made for a private retreat for all family members. The two car garage and elevator are life savers. We arrived during a nor'easter and being able to unload our car inside the garage and transport coolers and suitcases up on the elevator was awesome. The dining room table easily sat our entire family for meals. It was really nice to have everyone at the table together for our Thanksgiving meal. There was no need for a separate children's table. An added plus is the view! We could see the ocean and the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse from the dining room table. The house is one block from the ocean and is an easy walk and the house is situated so that you have a clear view of the ocean out all the front windows on the 2nd and 3rd level. We didn't use the swimming pool but we did use the hot tub. It is large and very relaxing. The kitchen may be my favorite part of the house. It is huge with lots and lots of counter tops. There are two dishwashers (a really good idea) and two separate sink areas. There is plenty of room for several cooks and we didn't mind other people joining us in the kitchen while we worked. A small table in the kitchen offers a view of the woods behind Whispering Sands. There are many deer in these woods and they came into the backyard almost everyday. There are also some cats that hang out in the woods, too. These cats managed to intimidate the deer. The deer, which are huge, are clearly afraid of the little cats. It was pretty funny watching the cats chase the deer off the property. Better than TV. 5 adults went to Pop's Raw Bar one evening. That was certainly an experience! It's mainly a bar but the food is delicious, some of the best seafood we have ever had. We all got out and walked on the beach everyday, even in the rain. The waves were huge and impressive. The Cape Hatteras Lighthouse and museum aren't far away and that is a good destination if you have children along for the walk. The kids spent a lot of time digging in the sand, building sand castles and they found some splendid shells. We loved that the house is on a cul-de-sac. The kids brought their skates with them and they skated in the road with no fear of being run over. We all highly recommend Whispering Sands and would definitely return!"

  • Wonderful Vacation Experience

    "This is a lovely, comfortable home with plenty of room for the three families we had on our vacation. It was quite clean and the kitchen was exceptionally well-stocked with utensils, dishes, and cookware. We appreciated that there were towels, cleaning supplies, and paper products for us to use straight away. Jayne was a delight to work with and answered questions/requests for us promptly and graciously. The sound was lovely to watch from the upper deck and we greatly enjoyed our stay. Highly recommend!"

  • This must be THE place!!!

    "Just got back from a vacation at this residence. It was fantastic. Beautiful scenes out of every window. If you have a large family and want to get them together for a visit and rest and fun, this is the place to be. I loved every minute of it! Looking forward to going back to the Outer Banks again someday."

Buxton Travel Tips

Buxton Beach House Rentals: Wondrous Oceanside Lodging

North Carolina's Outer Banks have been an immensely popular vacation destination for many years. The natural beauty, mostly perfect climate, and pristine beaches and waterways lure travelers during all seasons. If an Outer Banks vacation is on the agenda, consider Buxton beach house rentals to meet lodging needs. Buxton homes are an ocean lover's dream, offering ocean views of crimson and blaze-orange sunsets from open-air decks or screened porches. With numerous options to choose from, Buxton beach house rentals may offer private pools with tiki bars alongside the comforts of home, making for a perfect stay on the Outer Banks.

Outer Banks' Beauty Nearby

Located on beautiful Hatteras Island, wonder surrounds Buxton homes. Cape Hatteras National Seashore is the perfect way to enjoy the barrier islands, which have survived the ever-pounding sea and wind. The shoreline stretches over 70 miles. In some places, visitors can find isolated beaches where the sea birds are the only other life in sight. Many chances for fun and recreation exist at Cape Hatteras National Seashore. Spend a day or two enjoying the sun and surf while sunbathing, swimming, fishing, canoeing, sailing, s

helling, surfing, and snorkeling.

Explore Lighthouses and Shipwrecks

In 1870, men erected the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse to guide sailors away from the treacherous shoals that lie a few miles off shore, earning the Outer Banks the name "Graveyard of the Atlantic." A visit to the lighthouse, the tallest in the country, is a testament to man's long-time love affair with the often dangerous sea. Nearby, roam through exhibits and collections from shipwrecks at the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum. Many vessels have met their end in these waters and are remembered in exhibits. Hatteras Island's many activities are best culminated by a home-cooked meal and cocktails at Outer Banks vacation rentals—the perfect end to a day on the seashore.
