Property description

Hatteras Holiday is located in picturesque Hatteras Village. This 2 bedroom 2 bath cottage is just steps from the beach. You can park your car, relax, and begin to enjoy island living. Ride your bike or walk to artisan shops, art galleries, marinas, restaurants, and the Ocracoke Ferry Landing.

Hatteras Holiday is perfect for a couple or a small family. Everything you need for your vacation is here. Two lots back from the ocean, the beach is just steps away across a community boardwalk. You can walk for hours on our beautiful, unspoiled beaches or you can just relax under your umbrella and read that book you’ve been saving for the beach. Water sports enthusiasts can kite board, kayak, windsurf, or even para sail.

Fishermen can fish from the surf or charter a day trip at one of the marinas. There is a lighted fish cleaning table for preparing your catch for dinner. A locked storage area under the house makes it easy for you to stow your boogie boards, kites, or fishing gear. Chairs, beach umbrellas, and sandcastle building toys are provided for you.

Our home is nicely furnished and includes a roomy combined living/dining area. A well equipped modern kitchen has a large refrigerator with an ice maker, a microwave, and a dishwasher. The laundry is a separate room adjacent to the living area.

The screened porch off the kitchen, through sliding glass doors, is popular with all our guests. There is a big table and chairs on the screened porch that provides a space for outdoor dining .

Well furnished outdoor decks are comfortable for sunbathers and sunsets.

For entertainment, there are three televisions and DVD players, and a video library with a nice variety of movies. Charter Cable, high speed Internet, and WiFi are all included.

The two bedrooms are comfortable with good quality bedding. One has a queen size bed and the other has a full size platform bed with a memory foam mattress and twin beds with new mattresses. All beds have mattress pads, pillows and quilts.

NEW Next YEAR, 2015 - Bed linens are provided by Shore Details and your beds will be made and ready for you upon arrival.

There are two full bathrooms, plus an outdoor shower room with hot water for rinsing off after a day on the beach.

We want you to have a good vacation at a reasonable cost. The basic weekly rental is just that. You pay the basic rate, tax and cleaning/linens. At this time VRBO has added an additional charge for using their listing service. Your $200 security deposit will be in the mail for you just as soon as you depart.

Hatteras Holiday is a Shore Details house. The folks at Shore Details make sure your house is clean when you check in. They are also available to help you with any maintenance problems during your stay.

Shore Details can help you with grocery delivery, catering , or planning excursions while you’re on the island They believe that details matter and so do we.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Hatteras Island is home to us. We are retired schoolteachers from Ohio who have vacationed here for 45 years. When we had the opportunity we built a home and moved here. After ten years, we still love this island we call home and look forward to many years of happy island living.

Why the Owner Chose Hatteras, NC, USA:
After Hurricane Isabel we decided to buy a rental property by the beach. Hatteras Holiday was available and we were able to purchase it, known then as Shell-finder. We live in Buxton and had always vacationed in Frisco, so Hatteras, only ten miles away, was a learning experience for us. We have learned to love Hatteras and spend many days at Hatteras Holiday. Our children and grandchildren think of our cottage as their vacation home. The neighborhood is wonderful, made up of vacationers and summer residents. It is safe, quiet, and welcoming, a great place for anyone who wants to get away from hectic every day life and relax.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Hatteras is a village, home to many of our local people and charter boat families. There is a grocery store, a hardware, good restaurants, a library, a museum, the Coast Guard base, great marinas, and quiet island living. You can walk to everything in Hatteras or you can ride your bike anywhere. If you like more excitement, you can drive an hour to Nags Head for shopping and golf. If you want to step back in time, you can take the free ferry to Ocracoke and spend the day.
