About Mary LeCates

My husband, Danny, and I have lived in the same small town in Delaware all our lives. We share our home with our 2 chocolate labs, Luke and Remi, and a calico cat, Callie. Our 2 children and 5 grandchildren live nearby.

Mary LeCates purchased this house in 2009

Why Mary LeCates chose Rodanthe

KaCee's Retreat is our dream come true! We love to spend time here with our children, grandchildren, and chocolate labs, Luke and Remi. We first vacationed on Hatteras Island about 13 years ago and instantly fell in love with the area. When we stayed in Rodanthe 8 years ago, we knew we had found the perfect vacation spot! We decided to take the leap and make our dream of owning a beach house a reality. We sincerely hope that our guests enjoy the beauty and peacefulness of Hatteras Island as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

We love that KaCee's Retreat is so close to the beach and has fantastic views of the ocean. With our large family, the 5 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms are a big plus! Our favorite things to do are walking on the beach looking for unusual shells and sea glass, and just relaxing and watching the ever-changing ocean.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This home worked out really well for us. We loved the hammock, the views of the ocean, and the floorplan was perfect. The kitchen was perfectly stocked with pots, pans, dishes, glasses, and utensils. I wish the grill would have been working, but otherwise, just right!

Hatteras Island is a beautiful, narrow strip of land between the Atlantic Ocean and Pamlico Sound. You won't want to miss exploring the Hatteras Island Lighthouse, Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum, and Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge. In Rodanthe, you'll find the Chicamacomico Life-Saving Station Museum and the Civil War Battle of Chicamacomico Races. There are excellent restaurants in the tri-village area of Rodanthe, Waves, and Salvo, as well as in Avon and Buxton. If you visit Ocracoke Island to the south, Howard's Pub is a must. The Oregon Inlet Marina, where you can book a charter for gulf-stream fishing, is just a short drive away. The Town of Manteo on Roanoke Island is only a 30 minute drive from Rodanthe. Visit the North Carolina Aquarium, enjoy the outdoor play at The Lost Colony, and explore the beautiful Elizabethan Gardens. Parasailing is available at the Manteo Waterfront.

Perfect location for family relaxation and fun. Quiet street, beautiful beach, perfect home

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our annual family vacation at this perfect location in the NC Outer Banks. Central to many attractions, but secluded enough to avoid crowded roads noise. Our parents celebrated 56 years of marriage during our stay. The house was perfect, we cooked, laughed, played games on the deck and enjoyed the hot tub. Will definitely visit again. Thank you for a perfect week with family.

We had a very relaxing week with perfect weather.

  • 4 of 5

The house fit our needs perfectly. Great ocean views and easy access to the beach for long walks with our pup. The house was clean and has a well equipped kitchen. The only negative was the clothes washer. The drum is so out of line when it spins that it makes a lot of noise and sounds like it is going to come right through the outer casing.

And a first for us at beach rentals, the house cleaner was parked on the street by our driveway and then in our driveway while we packed our car. We were at least 1/2 to 3/4 of an hour ahead of checkout time. Makes you feel a bit rushed.

So great!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property and the owners went out of their way to accommodate us after Hurricane/Tropical Storm Maria disrupted our trip. I highly recommend this property and this owner. We had 4 adults, 2 kids, and 2 dogs. It was clean and spacious and so close to the beach.

Amazing location!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this house so much! The views of the ocean were beautiful and when our back doors were open we could always hear the waves. It comfortably fit all of our extended family and the house was very clean. The owners are very responsive and were flexible with my dates I requested. I would definitely stay here again!!

Great house, great location, great value

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed in various spots around OBX for about 12 years. We like Rodanthe as a quiet, low key spot which works really well when we travel with our dogs. Rodanthe doesn't offer as much commercial stuff as other areas in OBX, but we don't value that and can drive to it if we need it. We prefer a location on/near the beach for the easiest access. It can be hard to find a reasonably priced, 5 Bedroom, quality dog-friendly place on/near the beach.

KaCee's Retreat was a great house for us for several reasons. 1 - 5 Bedrooms - easily sucked up our 6 person family with some friends in tow. 2 - Very dog friendly with multiple decks for wet dogs to chill. Water spigots/hoses everywhere for watering or washing them. Easy to clean flooring (virtually no carpet). 3 - Great beach access - just a short walk over the dune and you're there. 4 - Reasonable rental rate for a place that offers all that this house does.

House was well appointed, comfortable and everything worked as expected. Would highly recommend this house for families/groups looking for a spot in Rodanthe (with or without dogs).
