About Bill and Angie Rapant
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.
Bill and Angie Rapant purchased this House in 2002
Why Bill and Angie Rapant chose Dare County
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.
What makes this House unique
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.

Great location, very well equipped and nicely layed out. Perfect getaway
We had the privilege to stay at the Papillon after the holidays over New Year’s Eve.
Even though it was extremely cold and it snowed during that week, we enjoyed our stay.
The hot tub helped us to get warm again after getting deep frosted on the beach and the top floor living area provided ample space for our group of nine for games and other activities.
Everybody was very pleased and the communication with the owner was prompt and pleasant.
We will definitely try to go again.
Thank you Angie and Bill.
Thank you for taking time to express your pleasure at staying in our cottage in Avon. That house has brought joy to hundreds of people who vacationed here and we are thrilled that we have contributed to it. Looking forward to welcoming you again in the future,
Angie and Bill
Well equipped, close to the beach.
Angie and Bill's home, Papillion, is perfect for a beach vacation. It is clean, spacious, well-equipped and very close to the beach. The town of Avon has everything you need and is not as crowded as the other towns. The hottub, outdoor shower and foosball table were hits! We especially appreciated the excellent communication before and during our stay. We will be back!
The owners were fantastic & quick to respond. Very friendly & provided great communication!
The Papillon is a wonderful home!!! The house comes with everything you'd need to make it feel like a home away from home. I loved being able to look out from the third deck and seeing the ocean. There were plenty of shops that were within walking distance, along with a DQ right across the street which was great for those hot summer nights. If you are looking for an awesome getaway then you should definitely choose this house! Thank you Bill and Angie!!
We are glad that our cottage provides comfort and convenience to the beach, shops and restaurants in the area. Our visitors always find the house to be much more beautiful than they expected and we are very proud that hundreds of people who have stayed at Papillon went home with wonderful memories.
Exceptionally clean; extremely accommodating
Papillon is a clean, very well equipped home that is perfect for all members of the family. The home has something for everyone to relax and have fun. With a very short walk to the beach (and no tall dunes to hike up), you can't go wrong by choosing Papillon for your next stay in Avon. I have vacationed on Hatteras Island every year of my life and have never felt more at home than I have at this home. Additionally, the owners are friendly, caring, and accommodating.
Thank you, Bill and Angie! Our winter stay made us love our favorite place on Earth even more! We will most definitely be back to your home soon. Until next time... :)
House is 3 lots back from the oceanfront. It is a pleasant 3 minute walk to the beach down Wahoo Circle cul de sac. Avon is close to prime kiteboarding destinations of Canadian Hole just south of Avon, and Rodanthe, 15 miles to the north
