Why Mike Raynes chose Hatteras Island

Donna and Mike have been visiting Hatteras Island for many years. Donna came down with her dad as a child when the roads were sand where they fished and played on the beach. Mike and his friends owned a permanent camper and came down often to surf fish. Mike and Donna purchased the property with a 1975 mobile home and eventually built the home of their dreams to share with family and friends.

2-Margaritaville is a magical house as the words of Jimmy Buffett's songs come alive--from the wonderful Salvo sunsets on the crow's nest deck, to watching your favorite movie or concert on the 73' TV, you will have a wonderful vacation. The ocean sounds and smells rock you in a relaxing and gentle sway as you are 'wasting away again in 2-Margaritaville'.

We had a wonderful stay at 2 Margaritaville. The owners were responsive during the booking process and take great care in maintaining the house. It seems like they have anticipated almost every need to make you feel at home...from the well-equipped kitchen to the baby gear/toys in a bedroom, beach cart, pool toys, and most surprisingly the fully-supplied bar and game/tv room. This house has a refrigerator on every level, and outside near the pool! The house is conveniently located near the access path to the ocean. My young children easily walked the path each day. We had the entire beach to ourselves a few times and it was never crowded. It is a short drive to the big supermarket in Avon but the nearby farm stands and markets for groceries, drinks and seafood had everything we needed. We highly recommend this house and will definitely be returning to 2-Margaritaville!

Owner's Response: This is music to our ears! Thank you for the kind review. Before every rental season begins, we do try and anticipate the needs of our guests. We go through each room and common area and make lists, lists, lists! The work that goes on behind the scenes is sometimes overwhelming so reading reviews from guests that appreciate and recognize our efforts is so rewarding! Thank you and please come back!

Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the most relaxing and bonding vacation we have ever had at 2 Margaritaville. Michael was so nice and welcoming. The weather was great! The pool felt so good. And we had the best view for the Persied Meteor Shower on the top deck. We did not want to leave. Thank you Michael for a beautiful relaxing home and letting us enjoy it.

North Carolina Aquarium is within driving distance as well as the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse.

The site of the Roanoke Colony offers live performances of the 'Lost Colony' and tours of the reconstructed ship that brought the colonists in the 1500s.

Deep sea fishing boats are available for charter at several nearby marinas.

Great surf fishing and pier fishing available with several fishing tournaments held on Hatteras Island usually during the fall. There's nothing like taking the young ones out to the beach to fish and see their faces light up as they reel in their first catch.

The Salvo day use area on the Pamlico Sound offers shallow and calm water for the very young to splash around and explore, as well as to kayak or paddle board.

East Coast Surf Championships are sometimes held nearby.

Those with 4WD vehicles may purchase weekly permits to drive out on the beach. Bring your coolers, grills, canopy and fishing tackle to spend the day enjoying the beach and surf.
