About Julie Crabtree

We have enjoyed visiting the Outer Banks for the past 14 years. We have stayed far North and far South on the island. When we decided to purchase our own beach house, we knew Rodanthe was where we wanted to be. We hope you fall in love with Rodanthe just like we did.

Julie Crabtree purchased this house in 2018

Why Julie Crabtree chose Rodanthe

We chose this spot because of the special location. It is in a non-commercial area and never crowded even in the highest season. We love that you can sit on the widows walk and see the ocean and the sound. Almost every room in the house has a water view.

You can easily walk to dinner or to the beach.

What makes this house unique

The neighbors are great. The views are amazing. Easy walk to the beach and lots of space where you can relax, even with a full house, you will NEVER feel crowded. There is a generous grassy back and front yard in which to play. If the ocean's not kid friendly one day, the pool and hot tub are the perfect solution!

Great Time in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Before I even booked the vacation, the owner of the property was very helpful. She answered many questions and even went out of her way to customized our stay. The entire family enjoyed our time at the Madd Hatteras. The girls loved the hot tub and the guys liked how close we were to the pier. We enjoyed the picnic table out on the deck, the grill (yum!), the open layout upstairs, and the board games. We had a great vacation.

Ideal Location, Great House

  • 4 of 5

We just spent a week at the Mad Hatteras and what a fabulous week we had! There were nine people total between two families. Plenty of room for everyone. Kitchen had plenty of pots and pans along with appliances and utensils. House was very clean and orderly. Quick walk to the pier and beach. Quiet neighborhood. We used the pool and hot tub daily. Close to shopping and restaurants too. Great communication with the owner, Julie. Minor complaints: a few of the outdoor resin chairs were cracked or broken and probably should have been removed prior to our arrival and pool light and exterior bulbs were either missing or didn’t work, so evening swims were dark. Suggestions: lots of light switches around the house that sometimes aren’t obvious to what each operates. Possibly label the switches? Also, with multiples families that may not do everything on the same schedule, have an extra key in the house (on the key hook in the kitchen) so we don’t have to use the lockbox everytime you leave. I would definitely recommend this house. Just a quick side note...we rented a propane grill from Moneysworth Beach equipment. Good price with full propane tank and free delivery/pick-up. We are grilling families and the campfire grill definitely would not have been big enough for the nine of us.
