Located at the very tip of Hatteras National Seashore, the authentic Carolina charm and natural landscape is relaxing and refreshing. No chain stores or commercial 'resort type' attractions intrude upon the charm of Hatteras Village. If you love the beach, you will love Hatteras!! And plenty of delicious fresh caught seafood Hatteras is famous for!

Sports & Adventure Activities
Our family spent our annual sibling vacation in this home last week. There were 13 adults. Two of them have difficulty with stairs, so the elevator was a blessing. It worked great. We enjoyed having all the gathering areas and the kitchen was fully stocked. Every bedroom having its own private bath worked out terrific. The home was clean and the owner was more than accommodating. Patrick was fabulous to work with. The views from the top deck were breathtaking! Relaxing in the hammocks and swings on the second deck were just what the doctor ordered for afternoon relaxing. Don't miss out on renting this outstanding home! Oh.......don't miss the pool and easy access to the beach!
Thanks!!! We love our guests!
Gorgeous home in great location
Spacious, clean, well-maintained, tons of amenities. Lots of great choices - steps from beach, screened porch, great pool, upper deck with amazing ocean view, lots of places to chill out. Owner very attentive and accommodating. Definitely coming back!
Andra, so glad you could visit and have a wonderfully relaxing vacation!

Scenery is breathtaking, house just needed more detailed care
The house itself is gorgeous and the view is absolutely beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay but encountered a rough start to the vacation. We arrived right as the cleaning crew was walking out the door, and we later found that none of the bed sheets had been changed (sand, dirt and pine needles were in the sheets). The kitchen ice-maker also did not work all week so we found ourselves making daily trips to the market for bags of ice to stock our coolers with.
Lastly, it's worth mentioning that one person slept up in the 4th floor loft a few nights and found his Invisalign tooth braces covered in ants one morning. While it's not meant to be a bedroom it should still be free of bugs, so he slept on the couch instead.
The owner was responsive to the issues but steadfastly defended that the cleaning crew can sometimes overlook things if they feel rushed, which they were not. We arrived 15-minutes before check-in but the cleaning crew was already on their way out the door. I was disappointed that nothing was done retroactively about the cleaning issues.
Again, the house is beautiful with plenty of amenities and the setting is truly blissful. The cleaning just needed more attention to detail.
We were quite surprised to hear our home was not in perfect condition and as clean / spotless as we would like if we were arriving as quests. At first we did not believe it (and for some time afterwards) as we have had the same individual taking care of our home for 7 years and have never had any issues with cleanliness.
We were later to find out our long time professional had been sick that week and had someone else do the work which was amazing when you consider 16 weeks a year for seven years, and this the first time she was unable to clean. She had been reassured by her replacement, who also cleaned alongside of her all these years, that the house was in perfect arrival condition, when apparently it was not.
This was the one and only time in all the 12 years we have owned the home it was less than 100% upon the arrival of quests. All our reviews are super positive, with the exception of this one.
Truly A Gem!!!
From the minute we walked in, we knew that we had made the right choice. The home is spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. We were three generations with a range from toddlers to seniors and everybody found their niche. The little boys claimed the upstairs loft as their Lego room and the little girls chose the screened in porch for arts and crafts. And the teenagers were never bored with the pool, hot tub and surf at the their disposal. Each family took a night to cook and everyone commented on how well the kitchen was stocked. We all miss sitting on the beautiful deck overlooking the ocean as we sipped our morning coffee. The beach was clean, very close and almost tropical in color. Having the elevator was such an asset for loading and unloading. Fishing, restaurants, grocery and gift shops were all nearby but the favorite was the short walk to the Happy Belly Ice Cream Parlor! Patrick was always available to answer any questions. We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay and we can't wait to return.
Thanks ! You guys are the best! Hope to see you back in the Fall!
Perfect Family Reunion House
We were three generations, gathering to celebrate my mother's impending 94th birthday. The house could not have been better suited to our needs. The elevator allowed her to be part of every bit of fun. The kitchen was well appointed, which helped as different families took turns cooking every night. The upper deck chairs and tables were enjoyed each morning and again around sunset. The kids stayed in the lower level, and had a ton of fun, but the sound didn't carry one bit. The pool was warm and lovely, and the hot tub a perfect way to end the day. And the beach...oh the beach. Warm and inviting, even with the crabs that entertained us. The big living area / kitchen was larger and nicer than the pictures actually show. This was our first trip to the OBX, but Patrick was very responsive before and during our trip. When we had an issue with the AC one morning, it was fixed by noon. I can't get that good of service at home.
Also we LOVED the surrounding area. Plenty to do, little shops and restaurants, but also quiet, peaceful, relaxing. On our way home, we tried to go visit Duck where all of our friends go, and got stuck in a horrific traffic jam and never made it. I am so glad we ended up in the quieter, southern OBX. We hope to do it again soon! Thanks again Patrick. Highly recommend.
Thanks Melissa! So glad you had a great time! It is always our goal to make you feel our vacation home is your special getaway!
Couldn't be any better!
First time ever in OBX. 4 families with 6 children. What can I say. Your house met very need we had! The sleeping arrangements were perfect, the hot tub was never empty, and the kids spent countless hours in the hammocks just hanging out. Nothing is better than getting up in the AM and sitting on the deck. It was great to be able to have a sit down dinner each night with such a large party. The kids loved sitting at their "own" counter! The best part about your house is that it is comfortable! The location can't be beat. All in all, it was a week filled with laughter. Thanks for providing us with such a relaxing atmosphere for us to enjoy. We are already gearing up for next year!
