Hatteras Island Oceanfront Big Pool Awesome View Right On The Best Beach!

Bedrooms 4
Space 2,500 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

We are right on the beach in Waves , about a mile south of the Rodanthe pier.

The views of the ocean are spectacular, and the pool and hot tub and white sand beach right in front make for lots of different things to do for fun. The short walk to the pier makes fishing easy and they let you take your dog onto the pier.

There are two bedrooms on the second level next to the kitchen and dining room. Then there are two bedrooms on the top floor next to the great room. The fourth floor is a loft with a futon.

Oh, and the waves are great right out in front of the house if you surf or boogie board. There are no vehicles allowed on the beach in front of these houses.

Kids and grownups love the Large 16x34 foot SWIMMING POOL, close proximity to the beach, (our own private path see the PHOTOS), the killer hot tub with ocean views, and the Dairy Queen for after dinner ice cream just a bike ride or skateboard or stroll up the street. It is a comfortable Oceanfront house with nothing between you and the ocean except sand! The pool area is spacious and well lit at night for grilling and swimming after dark.

4 bedrooms ( plus 'pool room', which really is a 5th bedroom) and 3 baths with an outdoor shower.

The water is clean and green and the ocean is fabulous right in front of the house.

The owner's profile picture is of me and my surfboard and dog on the beach right in front of the house. National Seashore, turtles, manta rays.....surfing, sun bathing and boogy-boarding right in front of the house.

This location is in Waves, NC, about a mile south of the Rodanthe pier on Hatteras Island. Just turn toward the Ocean off Hwy 12 at the Dairy Queen.

The house borders directly on the beach. It is only a short walk over magnificent dunes to the water's edge.

YOU CAN'T GET ANY CLOSER TO THE BEACH THAN THIS HOUSE, IT IS OCEANFRONT.(We are always getting questions, 'is it on the ocean?' Yes!!)

There is also a screened-in porch off the kitchen that looks out over the pool, a south facing third floor sundeck with a hot tub and epic views of the Atlantic, and a fireplace on the third floor for the cooler spring and fall nights.

On the ground floor off the pool deck, the pool room has its own bath, a single bed, refrigerator, TV and queen size sleeper sofa. During the day this room is a play room and an exercise area with free weights and at night this can serve as a fifth bedroom, with its own bathroom and a nice view of the pool.

The house features pillowtop mattresses and feather pillows so we can listen to the sound of the ocean from comfortable beds. (Have you ever vacationed and slept on a hard bed----Not here!) With the four bedrooms 12 beds and the pool room serving as a bedroom, the house can sleep a lot of people.

There are excellent views of the ocean from just about anywhere on the second and third floors and loft, from inside or out on the decks. You can see the ocean while lounging in the hot tub! On the second level there is a large dining area and fully stocked kitchen, with views of the pool and ocean from inside or from the deck or screened in porch.

The high cathedral ceiling on the third floor and large trapezoid windows combine to give a feeling of space to the top floor like a ski chalet. We watched a meteor shower once from inside the house just looking up through the high windows. Spectacular!

For those of you who have been to Hatteras Island, you probably already know that it is the premier destination on the East Coast if you are into fishing, surfing, kitesurfing, windsurfing, beaching, catching rays, kite-flying, sitting by the pool, grilling, shelling, bonfires on the beach (yes it's legal) Or maybe you just want to sit and watch sports or a movie on the HDTV big screen( with a DVD player and VCR )while listening to and looking out over the ocean, or check your e-mail (yes we have wireless!), or simply enjoying the sound of the ocean with a good book. We do all of these things and more in the comforts of a Oceanfront home with virtually all the amenities.

Please call at first number below during the week or second number below on weekends if you have further questions.

Pets are welcome if housebroken and on flea preventative treatment... A $500 damage and cleaning deposit will be required and returned in full if the home is left clean and undamaged. We also require a $200 charge for linen service. Bring towels.

Crossing over the Bonner Bridge onto Hatteras Island you leave the other world behind. We hope your experience is as satisfying as it has been for us.

Quite pleased!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at "Gone with the Wind" this past week, and had a great vacation. I would highly recommend this home. The positive reviews are accurate. The pictures posted on VRBO do not do the home justice. The fridge was a little sluggish, but don't let that keep you from renting this home. The TV's are all nice, especially the big screen on the third floor. We rented movies from the Red Box at the Dollar General just down the road, and really enjoyed this room on our 2 rainy days.

Home is dog friendly, which made it easy for our 2 dogs to join us. Just one dune and you're on the beach. There's fabulous views from the deck. Hot tub was great too. Pool was closed due to time of year, but it was quite large, and looked like it would be great for a family with kids. (pool was much bigger than homes we have rented in the past). We had a wonderful time and look forward to staying here again.

Had all the amenities I had requested . Kitchen well stocked .

  • 5 of 5

Everything in working order. Parts of the house look much prettier in person . As long as normal maintenance is done on the house this has many rental years left. Kitchen and bathroom on first floor could use uplift. While appliances are not new, they all worked great. The views are amazing . We had a wonderful fall break

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Great location.

There were a couple of items that need repaired or replaced however that did not get in the way of us having a great time. Renting was a breeze. Easy access to the house and the pool was wonderful. Hottub needs some work, but those things happen.

I had read other posts about the fridge. We only put cold items in and didnt overload, it was Wednesday before it stayed below 50°. Might be time to replace. Again, those things happen.

We would stay here again. Thanks for having a place at the beach!

Great location. Beach was right over one dune and pool right out the door. Layout was good.

  • 5 of 5

As with any beach house rental parts were well worn but everything ( pool, hot tub, TVs, WiFi , bathrooms etc. ) was in good working order and really everything thing you needed. One very small negative was the refrigerator took a couple of days to come up to speed.

Owner's Response: We ask that you not load a weeks worth of food in the fridge right away if there are a lot of room temperature drinks and such. The fridge is in proper working order. Just don't overload it with a case of warm beer and cokes etc. the first day. it works fine

So much to rave about!! 4.5 rating!!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay here. Big plusses: hvac kept us plenty cool on both levels AND the beds were all extremely comfy. The kitchen was very well equipped. Our large #s (8 adults and 4 children), though, overcrowded the refrigerator, so we wound up keeping ice chests filled during the week. The pool area was so nice, though it lacked shade. We remedied this by renting an umbrella that fit perfectly in the hole in the center of a patio table. Another rented umbrella + stand remedied lack of shade on the top level. Bedrooms are all very small - no biggie for us, but I can't see how any could accommodate a pack/play or a crib. All told, we'd definitely consider renting this if we come back to Hatteras Island
