This is our vacation house and we are here every year during Spring, Summer, and Fall. Therefore, the condition of everything in the house is constantly maintained in line with our personal standards so we can continually assure our guests a high level of satisfaction. From our own rental experiences we have concluded that how frequently an owner occupies the property has as much to do with its condition as any other single factor. Perhaps this is one reason why The Hatteras Beachhouse has been occupied 95-100% over the five months of May through September for as long as we have made it available to renters.
We can offer a family a quality beach experience for a very reasonable price and position you closer to the ocean than most other houses, even those that are more expensive. Don't be fooled by other houses that advertise 'short walk to beach'. In one minute from our driveway you cross the dune on a smooth boardwalk, and there you are - at the beach. Ten minutes walking in the other direction brings you to the Ocracoke ferry, a nautical museum, a variety of retail shops, two marinas where you can see the catch of the day, and several fine restaurants. Walking a few minutes more places you in the center of the village with more restaurants and retail shops, a pharmacy, medical building, grocery store, coffee shop, a public library (with free internet access), and an exceptional photographic gallery.
Our exceptional beaches and clean waters are praised by USA Today magazine and ranked 4th in U.S. by a prestigious coastal research center in Florida. Visitors also enjoy the quaint island village of Ocracoke (free car ferry around the corner of our street), a variety of fishing experiences, biking and kayaking (rentals in the village), visiting the historic Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, and enjoying the variety of shore birds seen throughout the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. Children also enjoy the varied summer programs offered by the National Park rangers in the area.
We offer a fully equipped and newly renovated kitchen and adjoining dining area for six guests. The living room is open to both of these areas, with large picture windows looking out over natural vegetation between our furnished sun deck and the beach. The master bedroom (queen) has its own bath, and the two other bedrooms (twin beds in each) share a full bath. All bedrooms have ceiling fans, as does the great room. and the house is also centrally air conditioned. With your laptop computer and our WI-FI connection, high speed internet access is available. Under the house is an enclosed outdoor shower, a lighted fish cleaning table, and a double wide concrete driveway which can accommodate a boat and several cars.
Bed linen service is available, and a well behaved pet (1 dog only) is welcome in the house - both at an additional charge (see Rates).

Great location, easy beach access and very cozy!
We really enjoyed our stay. Very convenient location and only a few steps to the beach. Quiet family friendly area and walking distance from restaurants, ferry and Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum. Owner had to address a wifi issue with the provider, out of his control, worked great once restored. Will definitely visit again for another stay.
Spacious and Comfortable
When renting a vacation house, Location, Location, Location rules the day and this property did not disappoint. 2 seconds from the beach. 2 minutes from town amenities. The owners are very organized and the house itself if very warm and welcoming. Probably not the last time I stay at this property.
Thanks Marc for your wonderful comments. Our guests benefit from the fact that we stay at the property at least three times a season to stay on top of whatever it needs. You, as well as many of our guests have commented upon our great proximity to the beach and all that Hatteras Village has to offer. We'd love to have you back for a longer stay next year.
Great House - very clean! Kitchen had everything you need and then some! Loved the outside shower and location to beach was great! Actually well located to everything in Hatteras Village. If it wasn't such a long drive for us we would be back every other month!
Thanks for taking the time to write the positive review. We look forward to you and a growing number of our guests returning to our house the next year.
A clean house with enough room for the whole family, including the dog!
This was a great spot for us. We loved how dog friendly the neighborhood and beaches were here. Hatteras is just big enough to have a great coffee shop, The Dancing Turtle, a couple of good restaurants, and a good grocery store near by in Buxton (Connor's). Small enough that the beach isn't over crowded. It was great taking the pup out for a run earlier in the morning and in the evening. We loved that you could have a fire on the beach with a permit. The proximity of the beach from the house made this trip fantastic. We also enjoyed the proximity of the free ferry to Ocracoke , although compared to Hatteras it felt crowded. Playing dominos at The Dancing Turtle while sipping on their Hatteras Sunrise smoothies was great too.
The house was clean, and we made good use of the well appointed kitchen. The various sizes of Corning ware made cooking for 3 all week a breeze. I definitely needed extra tp, paper towels, and napkins.
My mom, who this trip was for, is 82. She loved all of the art galleries. We actually spent a whole day going from one to another, and still missed a few. She did find it challenging to get on and off the beach as the sand dune was a steep climb for her. She also mentioned that she could have used a hand rail in the tub. But even with those issues we all agreed that this was one of our best family vacations. We fell in love with this neighborhood!
Sitting on the deck, on the comfy chairs, sipping wine and looking at the stars was another great experience at this lovely rental house.
All in all, a great place to reconnect with the family and relax. 5 stars!
Great house for family and dog close to the beach!
We loved the location of the Beachhouse! It was nice to be within a short walk to the beach and also to be close to the beach driving ramp in Hatteras and close enough to our favorite Frisco beach at Billy Mitchell Airport! We love feeling part of the community! Can't wait till the kids can ride their bikes around. It was also a great place to get some runs in! We had plenty of space for our family of 4 and our dog Frisco. Our kids even shared a room so we didn't use all the space. Our dog hurt her leg and is older so it was nice for her to not have so many steps to go up to get into the house although our kids were upset about not having flights of stairs but quickly got over it! It was nice to be close to the ferry as well. We love the outdoor shower since we typically never shower inside while at the beach. Also loved the organization of the house- so easy to find things. We always love Hatteras and our time there especially when you feel at home too! Thank you so much Alan and Sue for opening your home away from home for us!
I'm glad, Abby, that you found our house and its location to be great for a family who appreciate easy access to the beach, the Ocracoke Ferry, and all that the village of Hatteras has to offer. Come back in 2018 and enjoy the benefits we extend to guests who return to the house the following year.
Very cozy cabin like feel
The place has everything you need, the hose and shower under the house was nice to rinse off with. Just a 30 second walk to the ocean!
