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 Island

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!

Enjoyed much of the stay and area.

  • 3 of 5

We really enjoyed all aspects of our stay except the bed. The mattress had a large lump going down the middle and the pillows were hard making the sleeping not so restful. The space was what we expected and there were no unpleasant surprises except the bed.

Thank you

Nick and Amanda

No stay at Quality Time...emergency evacuation of rental property

  • 3 of 5

We never had the opportunity to have our first VRBO experience. All tourists had a mandatory evacuation from Hatteras Island and we were unable to have our vacation week.

Close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this beautiful little Cabana that is so nice and close to the beach. There were a few repairs needed but a loss of electricity on the island prevented their completion. Susan was helpful when it came to the eventual evacuation. The placement of the TV is a little awkward compared to the couch when we would watch a little TV in the evening.

The place was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was super clean and had everything you needed to cook a nice meal too. The upper deck is amazing for relaxing and just enjoying a morning or evening. Only maybe a 2 min walk to the beach and a 2 min walk to ice cream. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. We highly recommend Rocco's the food was amazing.
