About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths

THE SHELTER ON HATTERAS is the ultimate getaway home. Our immaculate Hatteras home has all of the comforts you'd expect. This is our second home, not a cookie-cutter rental. I keep the calendar up to date, so if the week you want shows as being open, it probably is available.

Google the address to see the great location. 58213 Woodall Way, Hatteras Village NC 27943. Ours is the first house on the left on Woodall Way, across the street from Teach's Lair Marina/Restaurant and the walk to the beach boardwalk only takes about 2 minutes.

You will be walking distance to the Hatteras Landing shops where you can dine, shop and play. If you have 4wd, you can purchase an off road permit at the National Park station, to drive on the beach where you can explore and discover your own private beach!

You will be in the heart of Hatteras Village with all of its charm and adventure. You will be within a short walk of the Ocracoke ferry, four to five restaurants, unique shopping, three marinas, The Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum, and the most un-spoiled beach on the East Coast.

The famous Cape Hatteras Lighthouse is only a few miles away.

A huge outside cedar-lined shower and mirrored dressing area. Free High-speed WI-FI Internet so bring your laptop or ipad. Flat screen TVs with digital cable in the living room and master bedroom.

Fish cleaning table, where you can prepare your days catch for dinner.

Several marinas, including Hatteras Landing, Teach's Lair Marina, Hatteras Harbor Marina, and Oden's Dock have headboats and charter boats available to take you fishing in the sound, inlet or the beautiful blue waters of the Gulf Stream. Scuba diving charters for exploring the many shipwrecks off our coast are also available, as well as para-sailing and dolphin and eco-tours.

The SHELTER is about 100 yards from Teaches Lair Marina. You can book your fishing trip or just visit before 4pm to see the days catch. The typical catches are blue marlin, sailfish, dolphin, red drum, wahoo, kings and spanish, bluefish, tuna, and grouper.

Another popular family activity is to take the from Hatteras Village to Ocracoke Island and explore the quaint fishing village. Ocracoke was named the Nations #1 beach for 2007. As a guest of THE SHELTER you are only seconds away from the free ferry.

USA Today named Hatteras Island one of top ten best beaches in all of the US! and I heard recently that Hatteras has also been named in the Top 10 Most Romantic beaches.

The Outer Banks were the first part of the Atlantic to be visited by English settlers, principally Sir Walter Raleigh’s expedition in the 1580’s.Through centuries of isolation the people inhabiting the outer banks have developed a way of life all their own. Hatteras near its southern tip is within 12 miles of the Gulf Stream is known as “Game Fish Junction” because abundance of northern and southern species of fish. It is off Cape Hatteras that the Labrador Current collides with the warm tropical water of the Gulf Stream.

COME ON DOWN,relax,fish and swim on North Carolina’s Outer Fringe at 'THE SHELTER ON HATTERAS' where you can get away from it all.

The Shelter is like a fine 25 year old bottle of Scotch!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect Beach Cottage in Hatteras! The location is 1/4 mile from the Ocracoke Ferry and Ramp 55 beach access. The beach is a mere 3 minute walk. A convenient store is across the street as is a very nice Seafood restaurant. Great cottage for a family. We have been going to the Shelter for many years. The Owners are first-class and ensure everything is perfect before your arrival. Now back to my Scotch!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was adorable. It was perfect for our family and the location couldn't be better. It is obvious that the owners have put tremendous care and attention to detail into their beach home. It has so much character! It really felt like a home away from home, not a rental. Thank you so much for allowing our family to rent your home. We will definitely be returning and recommending it to others!

Very comfortable, well appointed cottage in an interesting location.

  • 5 of 5

Our party of six including my wife, our two adult children, and their spouses stayed comfortably at the Shelter in July 2017. The house is very nicely equipped with all kitchen tools needed which is unusual for a beach rental. The outdoor shower is especially nice as is the fish cleaning table. The beds were comfortable. The house was perfectly clean on our arrival including the two Weber kettle grills. (We tried to leave it the same way.) We detected no evidence of smoking anywhere on the premises. The owner was very attentive communicating with us prior to arrival and sending a checkout list reminder the day before we departed. The location of the house is interesting with easy walking access to the marina and ferry docks. We very much enjoyed our stay and would gladly return.

The Shelter is the perfect vacation home. It was so comfortable and had everything we could ever need. It was truly one of the best beach vacations that we have ever had. The owner is very nice and checked in with us on the day we arrived just to make sure everything was okay.
