Lost at Sea is a charming and affordable oceanside cottage on Hatteras Island that is great for a romantic getaway, adventurous singles, couples or a small family any time of the year. Lose yourself in vacation bliss with its contemporary nautical blue and white decor that offeres two bedrooms each with their own attached private bath, and an open kitchen, dining and living area that is great for social gatherings or relaxing and reading a book.

Lost at Sea has three decks with the rooftop deck offering spectacular views of sunrises over the ocean and sunsets over the sound. The screened in deck is a great place to enjoy the shade and have an outdoor meal or enjoy the rocking chairs while watching the sun set over the sound; and finally the sliding doors in the living room and bedroom lead out to the main deck for outdoor enjoyment.

There are two bikes, plenty of beach chairs, umbrellas, sand & water toys, games, movies and more. A family picnic table on the sand next to the BBQ is casual and fun for dinner and the outdoor shower is great to wash off the sand from a day at the beach or sound. LAS offers a shaded dog run under the house for pets to play and dog bowls inside and outside the house.

Enjoy the special location of this seaside cottage all year round. The ultimate relaxing getaway experience with spectatular views - get Lost at Sea.

About Tricia Long

I first visited the Outer Banks and specifically Hatteras Island in February 2008. I was hooked immediately. I loved the natural wildness of HI and the quaint non-commercialized tri-cities area (Rodanthe/Waves/Salvo). I walked by Lost at Sea and fell in love immediatly. I signed the contract purchasing Lost at Sea before I even left the island that same week.

The photo is of my Belgian Malinois - Dakota. She was with me that week I found LAS and she continues to enjoy her visits to the beach catching the frisbie on the beach and swimming in the ocean.

I hope you enjoy LAS and the local area as much as we do on our visits.

Tricia Long purchased this cottage in 2008

Beautiful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Lost at Sea is situated just off the ocean and a small walk to the beach. It is perfect for a small family get a way and for a family that doesn't necessarily want to vacation with extended family to afford the get away in one of the larger beach houses. The owner makes sure all needs are met and more. Love love

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Lost at Sea for a week and had a great time! The house was beautiful and is located in a very peaceful neighborhood. Tricia was very accommodating and checked in part way through the week to make sure all was ok. We would definitely rent again.

Great location on Island with good beach access.

  • 3 of 5

This cottage has all the basics for a great beach vacation. Easy access to lots of activities, restaurants and points of interests. We especially enjoyed viewing the kite surfing that is unique to Slavo. We enjoyed day trips from Corolla down to Ocracoke. This area is the most beautiful with less commercial amenities and local charm while still providing the basic comforts.

Our only issues at the cottage: smelly small fridge in the kitchen, only 2 decent bath towels, dated toilets (small) and noisy/creekin floors throughout. Also, no bike ride as the one rear bike tire would not hold air.

We enjoyed the open floor plan, decks and screened front porch with the ocean breezes. Beds were comfortable however no window covering will have you up with the sun (which was fine for us).

Plenty of outdoor furniture and new grill (we didn't use) and nice hammock in the shade for relaxing. We had a wonderful week at Lost at Sea for our first visit to the OBX. Thanks Tricia.

Beautiful place to spend a week

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there last week. The beach near the house is not as crowded as in the middle of the town. We could let our dog run around on the beach. And it is also walkable to the stores and restaurants. From the decks, you have ocean and bay views. Very relaxing time! Hope to go back next year...We know our dog is looking forward to it.

Perfect. Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house just minutes from the ocean. We enjoyed beach days and some sight seeing activities (wild horse tour and lighthouses). The house was beautiful and well kept. Very pet friendly and the owner was very gracious to leave a welcome bag, map of the island, and checked in later in the week to make sure all is well. Can't wait to go back!
