Are you looking for a sun and sand filled vacation at an affordable, Outer Banks OCEANFRONT rental? Well look no further. The Lost Shaker of Salt is the perfect place for fun, romance and relaxation.

The Shaker is Small, But the Beach is Wide! The 'Shaker' is a free-standing one-room efficiency cabana, decorated in beach-house style. It is nestled among a cluster of forty small cabanas. Its features include a queen bed, a deluxe full size lay-z-boy pullout sleeper sofa with additional air mattress topper, and a kitchenette. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the amenities of home. The maximum occupancy is three people. The Shaker has four outside decks, the top decks has an amazing ocean view! Recipe for the perfect beach getaway: Just add Rum!

You can take your morning coffee with you on a stroll along the beach. While away the days in the hunt for the perfect sea shells. Watch the dolphins play in and out of the waves. Rig up a fishing pole and talk fish tales with the locals. Or grab your surf board and catch the perfect wave.

You are at the end of the Outer Banks island chain with not a care in the world. Hatteras Time. Come and enjoy. Relax, leave your worries behind. It's all good on the water!

About Erin

My husband and I bought the Lost Shaker of Salt in February, 2007. We started running the property as a vacation rental by owner in 2008. We live three hours away and go there regularly ourselves. Mike is in retail and I (Erin) am in computers. We are a thirty something couple. We love the Jimmy Buffett lifestyle. We love music, cocktails on the top deck, and having a great time. We are pround memebers of the Parrothead Club of Tidewater. We wanted our cabana to be relaxing, fun, and cheerful, all at the same time. We think we accomplished that at the Lost Shaker of Salt. Come check us out, we know you will be pleased!

Erin purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Erin chose Hatteras Island

Mike and I got married up the beach in Kill Devil

Hills seven years ago and ever since it has been our dream of owning a piece of our own paradise.

What makes this cottage unique

We love our little place. We want you to have a nice stay there as well. We try to make your experience as memorable and hassle free as possible. We provide many little 'perks' you are just not going to find at big rental companies. We are constantly adding new features and amenities to make your and our trip more fun, and travels to go smoothly.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We would like to go ahead with a contract for next summer if possible. This will be our sixth year our family has rented from you all and we can't think of a better way to spend our vacation. Thanks and God Bless.

Loved The Lost Shaker of Salt. Perfect size for two or three people. Very clean and decorated cheery. Super close to the beach, perfect place for a real beach experience. The neighbors were very friendly also and provided useful island information.
