Why Suzanne Gomba chose Dare County
Charmas is a house that was built utilizing every corner to its advantage. Built in the 1980's, the original owner had some ideas on how to get a 360 degree view of the ocean as well as the sound
What makes this House unique
This ocean front house is unique in its shape where the architect used every angle he could when building this house on its lot. It has an open floor plan, beautiful views of the ocean and sound, and relaxation can be found on every floor. The very top we call the 'Happy Hour Tower' which has a small refrigerator with wet bar, seating and a deck to view the sunset on the sound. Views of surfers and dolphins can be seen as well. A great place for coffee in the morning, tea time, or cocktails at night. Pictures can be seen on the wall of guests who have stayed with us and have caught fish. We'd love to add your picture!

Magical Beach Vacation Home
If you are looking for a home that is full of light and expansive ocean views, where all desired comforts are supplied, and where the beautiful, well organized and spacious accommodations support relaxing and enjoying every minute of your stay -- this is the house for you! The house has amazing space including several areas where you can tuck in for reading, a nap, or a private conversation; a crow's nest to watch the sun rise and set; all the electronics your heart desires; AND, everything you need to take to the beach except for yourself and your towels! The owners are gracious and helpful. The town of Hatteras is charming and has everything you need for the perfect vacation! Book early because we are telling all our friends about this wonderful place!
Wonderful house and location
The house is light, bright and right on the beach, literally a short walk from the ferry to Okracoke. It's a little aged but totally worth the stay - a huge living area/kitchen with 4 great bedrooms (and a fifth if you count the uppermost attic spot) and multiple decks. We had a mixup where the cleaning and new sheets hadn't been done and they were totally responsive and good about it. They also responded quickly about a hot tub glitch.
The area has a decent selection of groceries and shops - though bear in mind if you prefer mega malls and so forth this is not your place. It is mostly a place about getting away. Most of the stores closed around 8 (though we were there in spring so it might be different in high season) and they are mostly of the mom-and-pop variety, such as the Lee General Store less than a mile away.
This was our second time at Charmas and I'm betting it won't be our last.
Stunning house with amazing light, gorgeous views through every window, and everything you need!
We love this house! It is beautifully maintained and furnished with high quality bedding and many extras. The owners went out of their way to answer all our questions and share locations, restaurants, and activities to be enjoyed in and around Hatteras Village. Their love for this beach community is apparent. The orientation of the house provides gorgeous views through every window. Not having to bring sheets, towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, etc. was wonderful! All the equipment to enjoy using in the ocean was great. Having ocean kayaks was a fabulous extra! The location is perfect, facing the ocean on a quiet street in a part of Hatteras we have never stayed in before but fell in love with. We plan to make this house our only Outer Banks destination! We loved taking the ferry to Ocracoke, watching sunrise on the beach and sunset on the bay, checking out some of the recommended restaurants, picking out delicious fresh fruit and vegetables from the produce stand, and especially star gazing at the Milky Way every night (we were so lucky with the weather)! You will have a wonderful vacation with family and friends, returning home with memories of blue sky, long open beach, and dolphins swimming, and remembering the sounds of waves breaking and ocean breezes (not to forget the absence of any commercial advertising). We enjoyed a fabulous vacation!
our stay just the setting we were looking for!
Continues to serve as our best vacation spot!
The home is perfectly situated to watch the beach as well as the sunset over the sound- all from the hot tub! The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, Tupperware and spices.
Charma's Landmark has been my favorite birthday spot now for several years and will continue to be! Home away from home.
Thank you Suzanne!
Great family house
If you're looking for a great house for a family, this is it. Well appointed but not fancy or fussy. You can relax here. Decks facing multiple directions so you can get sun or shade at almost any time of day as you wish. Good mattresses. Easy walk over the path to the beach. Great outdoor shower. Wonderful chairs and umbrellas provided. Only the master bedroom has a bathroom directly attached, but there are 2 other full baths accessible to the other 3 bedrooms. All bedrooms have access to a deck. We had a great week here, and the owners were accessible and great to work with.
Charmas is located near the end of Hatteras Island on a quiet side street, only a short walk to shopping and dining. The ferry to Ocracoke Island is 2 minutes away.
