Overview

About the property

Studio, 1 Bedroom 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2 Adults 1 child)

Spend some time in our little slice of paradise, 'Quality Time' and experience the wonders of Cape Hatteras at your doorstep. Relax on our roof top deck under the brightest stars you will ever see or take a sunrise walk and watch the dolphins swim in the surf.

Quality Time is a free standing Studio on stilts with parking underneath providing you a private hide-a-way on the beach. Our queen size Sleep Number Bed will ensure you get a good nights sleep and if you have a small child or a buddy along, the sofa bed is comfy too. We provide premium bedding for your comfort. Sheets, pillows, comforters.

Dan and I love to cook so the kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals or entertain. The local restaurants are wonderful too with fresh local seafood. There are charcoal grills and picnic tables outside for the grill masters among you.

We provide 2 beach Chairs, 2 Umbrellas and 2 Boogie Boards for your enjoyment. There are rental shops nearby if you would like to rent bikes or kayaks etc.

QT is small so we have done everything to utilize the space as efficiently and artistically as possible. It's very cheerful, clean and well, it's just beachy. We've had lots of honeymooners and many repeat visitors over the years to rave reviews. We think you will be very happy at Quality Time.

As with all Mid Atlantic vacation spots we are subject to hurricanes between July and Nov. Please consider travel insurance. VRBO offers a plan but there are other insurance options. Check via GOOGLE. It's not expensive and safeguards your vacation monies.

About Susan and Dan Beard

I have family in Hatteras and have been going to Hatteras since I was a small child. My husband Dan was raised on a finger lake in NY so we both have a love of the water.

We rented a Cabana in the summer of 2006 and were hooked. We had 4 units filled with family and friends and enjoyed the privacy of the individual units over the big beach houses we had rented before. We bought #32 on my birthday later that same year.

We feel that time with family and friends is so important and when you combine that with sunny skies and endless beaches the name Quality Time just fits.

Dan and I love fishing and Hatteras offers a of variety of options. Surf casting from the beach has provided many lunches of Trout, Pompano, Puppy Drum, Flounder etc. There are head boats and charters a plenty. Our favorite is the Stormy Petrel. It is huge and can take the whole family out deep sea fishing.

Susan and Dan Beard purchased this studio in 2006

Why Susan and Dan Beard chose Hatteras

Dan proposed to me on one knee at the top of Hatteras Lighthouse in 1997 before it was moved. This area holds so many special memories for us and we hope your time here will enrich your lives as much as it has ours.

What makes this studio unique

Driving on the beach is too much fun!! It's a must do if you have a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Beach combing, horseback riding on the beach, kite surfing, kayaking, did i mention driving on the beach?? Fishing, driving on the beach and camp fires require permits so please follow the local laws governing these activities.

The Beard's place was absolutely perfect for our weekend getaway, very clean and well kept!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't recommend this place more. Just a stones throw away from the beach. Beautiful views. Loved both of the decks and the little patio set. We ate breakfast and lunch everyday outside. Can't wait to come back and stay here again!

Good value but needs one improvement

  • 4 of 5

Overall, this is a great value for a reasonable getaway that puts you close to the ocean in a quiet, easy going atmosphere. My SO loved being able to walk out to fish every day, and we met a lot of nice people in the neighboring cabanas. The kitchen had all the necessaries, and was laid out well with such a small space. The cabana was clean. I would have liked an extra blanket--since it was cold for our stay. We had no issues with the internet at all, and a good selection of channels on the television (which I had to take advantage of since it was too chilly for me on the beach).

The cabana is well decorated and cozy. It is a studio, so all space is maximized. The only complaint we had was with the bed. As with the prior reviewer, it was very uncomfortable and the controller appeared to be broken. I know I could have called the owners, but it was not something that could be easily fixed. I would really recommend a new mattress--not a Sleep Number (I am not a fan as they always seem to break judging from the experiences of family members)--as it seems to be an ongoing issue now looking back at some prior reviews. We would definitely be back if that issue was resolved.

Quality Time

  • 4 of 5

Me and my husband had a wonderful time here. The only issues we had were with the wifi connection and the bed had a big dip in the middle. Besides those things everything was great. Thank you!

Owner's Response: So glad you had a good time on your get away. The bed is a sleep number bed and each side is adjustable so both sleepers can be on as soft or firm a surface as they wish. I'm wondering if the dip was a result of your settings. I am sorry you were not comfortable and wish you would have contacted me to help you correct this problem while you were there. We hope you come back and give us another chance to get it "perfect" for you. Susan and Beard

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our 8 year anniversary. The cottage was perfect and exactly what the pictures showed. Short walk to the beautiful beach and all the amenities you need. The owners were very quick to get back to us with any questions we had. All of the restaurant recommendations were great. A lot of the restaurants closed at 9pm and some were closed because it is the end of the season so keep that in mind. It was perfect for us. Definitely take advantage of having a fire on the beach but be careful of the crabs :). We will definitely be back to this amazing cottage in paradise!
