About David Hudnell

This home has been in our family since 1986 and we have made many memories with both family and friends that will last a lifetime.

David Hudnell purchased this house in 1986

Why David Hudnell chose Hatteras Island

The Outer Banks is one of the most laid back vacation spots on the East Coast. It offers great surf fishing and has also become a hot spot for windsurfers with many businesses catering to both of these sports.

Tidewatch is only a few steps from the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Upper deck and Old Bath House was one of my favorites. Shower works great and it has a lot of room. I was able to store my paddleboard and use it at the same time! Screened deck is also a popular spot. The grill worked well and having the grill assessories including charcoal can was very handy. Rosana

Awesome property, right next to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Really loved the house and Avon has awesome beaches. My suggestion to other travelers is to use your beach house and cook, because the restaurants on the island aren't very good. With that said we've spent the last three summers in the Caribbean and this was better than all of those.

Enter experience here ;-)

Some oddities with the place like the washer/dryer downstairs but all in all the place was great for our family. Very close to public beach access and the grocery store. Kitchen had everything we needed and the rooms were nice. We would stay here again.

This was our second stay at Tidewatch and we had a wonderful week. Only steps to the beach, and an awesome outdoor shower. The house was clean and the views from the deck were beautiful.

I really recommend it for families with kids . Thanks again!

Good times.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a great time at the Tidewatch. Upon arrival the place was clean and everything was in order. The property was closer to the beach than I expected. We enjoyed every minute whether we were on the top deck taking in the view, cooking the days catch on the park grill or using the outside shower after a "tough" day at the beach. We would recommend a stay at Tidewatch to anyone.

The surf fishing is world famous, with many local boats for hire for a deep sea fishing expedition that will leave memories for a liftime. The local resturants have a pipeline to some of the freshest seafood that you will ever taste. There are also many wholesale fish markets to bring home and prepare yourself.

Tidewatch is located a short drive from Nags Head, home of many outlet shops. A lttle futher down the road enjoy the dunes of Jockeys Ridge and Kitty Hawk, the site of the Wright brothers first flight. Take a ride in the southern direction to Hatteras Village and catch the ferry to historic Ocracoke Island where the famous pirate Blackbeard left his mark.
