Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Angie & Bill Rapant built 'Papillon' as a Hatteras Island retreat in 2002. They own and operate the Cape Pines Motel in Buxton, NC, a short drive from Avon. Not satisfied with the management of their vacation rental home, they decided to rent the house directly with guests as a means of providing better rental prices for guests, and for ensuring a truly comfortable stay for all guests. With over 20 years of 4 & 5 Star hotel experience, the Rapants are truly dedicated to making guests feel at home at their home on the Outer Banks.

Why the Owner Chose Avon, NC, USA:
Angie & Bill fell in love with the quaint town of Avon on Hatteras Island. The natural beauty of the island has made this a special place for them. With over 20 years of 4 & 5 Star hotel experience, Angie & Bill are pleased to accommodate families in their special home in Avon on Hatteras Island.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Unlike so many of the houses on Hatteras Island, this home is meticulously maintained. Angie & Bill enjoy making this home available to guests from near and far. You will be amazed at the cleanliness of this home, and you will truly feel at home. Avon is close to the kiteboarding and windsurfing areas in both Rodanthe and Avon/Buxton.
