About Terri Haynie
My husband and I have been going to the Outer banks for many years. We tried the northern beaches but found them to be crowded and too much traffic. We wanted to have an affordable vacation but found that most of the homes were too big. Once we found Hatteras, and the cabanas that was it. We purchased our first cabana in 2001 'Haynies Hideaway', and have enjoyed many years of just hanging out on the island, fishing, beach combing, and relaxing. In 2012 we purchased 'Sea La Vie' because we found our other cabana was booked so much we didn't get a chance to come down and enjoy it. Our daughter was 6 years old when we purchased our first cabana and still LOVES coming down and enjoying close family time. (She's 21 now)We love the beach, and Hatteras has the most amazing sunsets!!!We want our guests to enjoy our little place and take home awesome memories of the little cabana on the beach. Our plan is to one day move to Hatteras and become 'islanders'. Gotta have a plan :) Life is better on the island!!!
Terri Haynie purchased this Cabin in 2012
Why Terri Haynie chose Hatteras
The meaning of 'Sea La Vie' 'La Vie' meaning 'Life' the name was inspired from our daughters love of the french language. Romantic, and spiritual. The HISTORY of 'Sea La Vie' In 2003 Hurricane Isabel pounded our cabana community and after 3 long days of pounding seas, 29 cabanas where wiped completely out. Some where found by the water tower, several scattered around the town, some just washed out to sea. Out of the 40 cabanas 11 stood up to Isabel's pounding seas. 'Sea La Vie' was the last cabana standing in the outside row. It sat vacant, unkept and in desperate need of new owners for 10 years. After alot of negotiation we purchased and closed October 2012. For the next 5 months we completely replaced EVERYTHING from the outside in. 'Sea La Vie' is now ready for new guests, and new memories. We have tried to put everything possible that we love into 'Sea La Vie' and take pride in keeping our place clean and well equipped. Terri & Kelly & Hunter
What makes this Cabin unique
Our little slice of heaven....that's what we say about our cabana everytime we go. Whether it's sitting out front on our beach (our backyard)or just hanging out on the decks, it's fabulous! My husband loves to get up early, and I love to sleep in. He grabs a coffee and his fishing rod and goes fishing. Our place is so close to the Hatteras Lighthouse, fishing piers, Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum , and the Ocracoke ferry too. The village has many locally owned art galleries and restaurants. We love supporting the locals! If you are looking for beautiful beaches, that are not crowded, world class off shore fishing, no outlet malls..you have found it! Take a day trip to Ocracoke Island, and check out the horses, and the lighthouse. So much to do, if you love nature at it's finest.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Murphy's law struck again
The property was as advertised. Our stay was not as hoped due to my wife's health which changed considerably between the time of reserving and the arrival date. Since refunds were not allowed, and choosing not to just write-off the money, we went through the trip. Repeat, there was no problem with the property, the damper was my wife's health.
Very good place to stay
Would stay there again
Absolutely loved it! Great way to spend my birthday
Great place for a relaxing vacation for 2
Place was clean and had all the necessary items for us to relax and spend as much time on the beach as possible.
Perfect for a couples getaway
Cute and cozy cabana that had everything we needed for a home base as we explored the outer banks.
-Easy access to the beach
-Beach is large and allows for privacy
-Rooftop deck to view the beach, island and the night sky. Great place for your morning coffee.
-Short drive to grocery stores and restaurants.
The mattress was softer than we are accustomed to and the internet stopped working after a couple of days, but that was minor issues. We had a great visit to Hatteras.
-Visited 4 of the 5 OBX lighthouses
-Did a wild horse humvee tour in Corolla
-Took the ferry to Ocracoke for the day
-Had great seafood at the Sandbar and Grille AND Hatteras Sol restaurants
We are still talking about our magical vacation. We are looking forward to returning next year.
Hatteras Island is a true hidden treasure. From the moment you drive over the Bonner bridge you will experience nature at her finest. The drive through Pea Island refuge to all the little towns on the way to Hatteras are filled with many sights. Check out the Hatteras Lighthouse along the way or stop and see the kiteboarders at The Canadian Hole. The drive is never boring. The atlantic ocean on one side and the sound on the other.This is a must see for everyone!
