Beautiful Ocean Front Condo in Peaceful Rodanthe: Dacotah Hill

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Let us share our pristine beach home with you. Dacotah Hill is a 2 bedroom 2 bath oceanfront property. Professionally decorated and new on the market, this luxury condo is in pristine condition. The third floor 'end unit' offers great views from anywhere in the condo while at the same time being easily accessible via the elevator (and no one is walking above you - we are the top!). Watch the sun rise from the deck on the ocean side or the sun set over the sound - whichever way you turn it's beautiful.

We have spared no expense to make this home inviting and comfortable for your vacation. The kitchen features granite counter tops, tile flooring and stainless steel appliances including a glass cooktop. The kitchen is well stocked for the cook in the family and outdoor community grills are available for the barbecue masters. The master bedroom has a king bed and separate entrance to the balcony. The second bedroom has a queen bed and sound view. There are two full bathrooms with granite counter tops and tile floors. Washer and dryer, front porch and private furnished balcony round out the experience.

A peaceful, family environment, the Outer Banks provide many options for enjoying your vacation. Sandy beaches, surfing, kite boarding, dolphin tours and deep sea fishing await you on the Atlantic. The sound side offers wave runners, jet skis, sailing, windsurfing, fishing, crabbing, cruising, and kayaking. Or just walk down the beach to the Rodanthe pier to fish - a leisurely 5 minute stroll from Dacotah Hill. The beach is 100 steps from your door! And a boardwalk provides easy access. When you are tired of the sand, relax by the sparkling community pool.

If you lean more towards exploring on land, there is an abundance of activities available and sights to see. Visit the Raleigh National Historic Site, Elizabethan Gardens and Outdoor Drama - nationally acclaimed The Lost Colony.

Do you like Lighthouses? We have some of the tallest in America! Currituck Beach Lighthouse, Bodie Island Lighthouse, Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, Ocracoke Lighthouse, the Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse and Chicamacomico Life Saving Station.

When we took to the sky.....visit Kitty Hawk, First Flight Airport Museum, and the Wright Brothers National Memorial.

The Graveyard of the Atlantic museum displays artifacts from historic shipwrecks, unique beach finds and locally carved ships’ models. Ocracoke Island is where the pirate Blackbeard plundered many a ship.

Love fish - visit the North Carolina Aquarium.

If you are a nature lover, the Outer Banks is your paradise. OBX is home to Cape Hatteras National Seashore, Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge, and Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge. Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge – Cape Hatteras National Seashore is located between Oregon Inlet and Rodanthe. The 6000-acre refuge is a haven for more than 360 species of birds. From spring to autumn, a large variety of wading, shore and upland birds can be seen.

Drive north to Corolla, where you can see the wild horses, take outback tours and visit the 4 wheel drive area: there are 26 miles of beach and dunes for beach offroading.

And of course, tennis, golf, spas, bi plane rides and helicopter air tours are all available. Not to mention shopping at the Tanger outlets.

The major motion picture Nights in Rodanthe -starring Richard Gere and Diane Lane and based on the bestselling novel by author Nicholas Sparks - was shot on location in the Hatteras Island village of Rodanthe.

Beautiful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to OBX and it certainly lived up to its reputation. The condo was a peaceful, beautiful retreat. Our family thoroughly enjoyed the beach & pool, riding our bikes, flying a kite or simply catching a movie on the Roku. The views were amazing~ The ocean view gorgeous! What surprised me and captivated me the most were the sunset views each night. Our family would gather on the front deck or walk to the sound side and watch the sun drop below the horizon with the most magnificent colors! Brad was quickly responsive to any questions I had and very professional. The condo is a beautiful place for a family to stay in Rodanthe!

I Thought It Was Great

  • 4 of 5

This was a tale of 2 vacations. My mother was cold because the A.C. kept running below the set temperature to achieve a preset humidity that we could not change. She was unhappy because she could not watch the Eagles play or watch live TV or local news. I, on the other hand, was comfortable with the temperature. I do not watch sports or the news. I don't mind ROKU at all. The condo was beautifully updated and I would be happy to return.

If you enjoy getting up in the morning and watching the Today Show with a cup of coffee do not stay here. The Roku TV setup is a joke. You cannot watch any live TV or anything worth watching without paying a fee. When I pay a lot of money to stay somewhere I think cable or satellite television should be included. It only makes sense to be able to watch local television especially when major hurricanes are off the coast.

I was also upset that every time we went to sit on the balcony we had to smell cigarette smoke from the floor below. Not good since my husband suffers from respiratory problems.

The condo itself looked clean upon arrival but soon discovered it was filthy. I don't think the floors have been washed with soap and water all year. They are simply swept and vacuumed. I wet a paper towel and wiped the kitchen and bathroom floor and couldn't believe how dirty they were. The drain in the master bathroom was so clogged it was like taking a bath as you showered. Thanks to my husband he unclogged the drain.

We were very disappointed with this trip since we had stayed at this condo a few years ago. I don't think I'll be coming back.

Owner's Response: Thank you. In the future I will provide a more detailed explanation for operating the Roku TV. Roku TV has live TV along with hundreds of channels including HBO, Netflix, Amazon, and Sling. Sling covers all networks like AMC, TNT, ESPN, etc.. There is also a weather channel which broadcasts both local weather and national weather conditions 24/7. Both TV service and WiFi are completely free. There is no additional cost to the guest. I will do a better job of explaining how to use the Roku system in the future. As for cleaning, the first sentence in the email sent to all guests two weeks before their arrival states, "If there is anything not okay about the condition of the condo, please notify the cleaning agency and/or myself immediately. The cleaning agency will correct any problem as long as you let them know right away but will not compensate otherwise i.e. after you leave." Thank you for your patronage.

Excellent condo and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was in excellent condition and provided a very comfortable stay. It was exactly as promised in the listing. The view was spot on being on the top floor with a balcony overlooking the beach. The location is relatively quiet and secluded compared to Kill Devil Hills and other more populated areas of the island, but was exactly what we were looking for in a vacation spot. The beach wasn't crowded and distance from our condo to the beach was a quick walk down a walkway from the property. I highly recommend the rental!

Owner's Response: Thank you! One of our favorite aspects of Dacotah Hill is the uncrowded beach. In September, October, March, April, and May, you will find only a handful of people on the beach and sometimes none! Please come visit again!

Trash bins closer to the property would be nice.

  • 5 of 5

Overall, this was an awesome condo. Just a few suggestions. The condo needs an extra night stand and end table, as well as an ottoman. Guest soaps would have also been nice. The kitchen needs a dish drainer. A couple of dishwasher detergent pods would have been great also.

VERY CLEAN! Great views. Loved watching the lightning shows at night to the north of us. Kitchen very well equipped and dishwasher had an amazing capacity. Washer and drier really came in handy. Can walk for miles on the beach. This was one of our best and most relaxing vacations. Have to admit taking our bikes was a waste. Bike lanes are small and with trailers going by didn't feel real safe. The beach was awesome. No luck fishing but fun trying. Be sure to bring dish cloths and towels along with beach towels. shop ahead you can rent everything and anything and have it delivered on arrival.

Thank you Brad, for your hospitality and the wonderful opportunity to stay at your home. This vacation was long awaited and surpassed all of our expectations. Thank you for such great memories.

Sincerely Sharon
