About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathrrooms (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to 'Tranquility Cottage", your escape to the Outer Banks for a fun, relaxing vacation in the heart of Hatteras Island. Located in the Village of Waves, this Saturday to Saturday rental has direct access to the Atlantic Ocean and the Pamlico Sound. Whether you are looking for world class fishing, incredible surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, kiteboarding, paddleboarding and kayaking or just wish to relax on the beach, our home will bring you peace and "Tranquility".

Our home offers 3 bedrooms, 1 and 1/2 bathrooms plus a large outside enclosed hot/cold shower with attached changing area. Bedroom #1 has a queen bed, TV and attached half bath. Bedroom #2 has a full size bed. Bedroom #3 has twin size bunk beds, sleeper sofa, TV, DVD and AM/FM receiver. The living room has a large flat screen TV with DVD player and AM/FM receiver.. Balcony has a reading desk with library of over 50 books. There is a separate laundry room with full size washer and dryer. The living room has a large cathedral ceiling and skylights to fill the house with sunlight during the day. The front deck has built in chairs and is large enough for private sunning. The screened-in back porch has a wet bar, ice machine, and deck chairs great for relaxing after a fun filled day to watch the sun set over the sound. There is a fish cleaning table with two sinks and running water. Top it off with a large outside charcoal picnic grill and you will call this your 'home away from home!' We vacation here ourselves, so it is maintained pristinely to the highest standards.

Known for it's prevailing southwest winds, Hatteras Island offers windsurfing and kiteboarding conditions like no other. The surf has incredible breaks for surfers of all abilities. If fishing is your fancy, it is available on multiple levels, including surf-fishing, pier-fishing, and offshore or inshore charters. You can also bring your own boat, launch it for free and keep it here on our property. If you like to drive on the beach, there are multiple entrance ramps available for your 4x4 vehicle.

Walking to the ocean or sound takes just minutes. Leave your car in the driveway and discover the fun filled activities just a short walk away. At the end of the street is a watersports shop, where kayaks, jet-skis, surfboards, kiteboards and paddle boards are all available for rent. Never tried any of these? They offer lessons to all levels as well. There is a Dairy Queen directly at the end of our road where you can enjoy an ice cream sundae after a hearty dinner at several restaurants only minutes away.

Regardless of where you have vacationed in the past, 'Tranquility Cottage' will offer you and your family a peaceful and relaxing environment. We hope you will want to return year after year like many of our guests.
