About Jeanette Hobson

John and I are avid beach people. There is no place like the beach to soothe your soul, thus the name of our place 'Soul Soother'. We have stayed in many places and our goal was to make our beach retreat a place people would want to come back to again and again!

Why Jeanette Hobson chose Hatteras Island

The Outer Banks in general is well known for it's great fishing opportunities. Hatteras Island is famous for it's surfing and kite boarding. Waves has one of the best beaches on the east coast. Our beach is very wide. Everyone has their own space. No stacking up next to your neighbor here! You are guaranteed to fall in love with the tri-villages of Rodanthe, Waves and Salvo. Come for one visit and you'll be coming for a lifetime.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so very much for allowing us to use our home. It's very beautiful and we had a great time. The scenery is beautiful. The beach was awesome. We will definitely be back!

This property was beyond our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

Soul Soother is a beautiful and incredibly private place. Much nicer than we expected. We came to Waves to take a 3 day kiteboarding class at REAL kiteboarding. Because we had awesome beach cruisers we were able to bike to the lessons instead of driving every day. A nice surprise. The beach is walking distance and the apartment has everything you need. The price for the apartment is great for the area. Our only advice is buy groceries in Kill Devil to stock up and make your meals at home. Makes it much more affordable. If we come back to the area we will definitely stay here again! Worth every penny.

Soul Soother October getaway

  • 5 of 5

John and Jeanette Hobson offer an eloquent, relaxing, very clean and very affordable getaway in Waves, NC. The accommodations were just a stones throw away from the beach and the property was extremely well kept and attractive. John and Jeanette were also very personable and professional which made interacting with them enjoyable. We recommend "Soul Soother" to anyone interested in a quiet getaway.

"Soul Soother" will sooth your soul.

  • 5 of 5

In a word, my trip to Waves, NC was great! I booked the trip on short notice, but it all went off without a hitch. I got a response from Jeanette within a few minutes to confirm my reservation. Their home is on a quiet cul - de - sac, which is about 500 feet from the beach! The apartment is perfect for a couple looking for a quiet getaway. Of course, the peak months during the summer will be more crowded with families. I prefer the solitude, so October is a good month for that. The apartment itself was very comfortable; it had all of the amenities that you would need for a weekly stay. Perhaps even better is the backyard. They have a small deck, which is great when you want to share a bottle of wine with your loved one. There is a nice size pool and hot tub, which will surely take the stress away. Plus there is a grill for those tuna steaks. The home is centrally located on the island, so you can head south and explore the little towns, or head up toward Nags Head to do some shopping. This is an ideal stop for a vacation. You will not be disappointed with this choice. Jeanette & John would love to see you.

Great convient place for 2

  • 5 of 5

Soul Soother is a great place for 2 that want to enjoy the best of what the Outer Banks has to offer. Located between Avon and Nags Head you are only 25 min away from an abundance of activities and place to eat. We particularly enjoyed Watermans Bar and Grill which is with in walking distance from the house. The owners were very accommodating as well. Highly recommend the place for you stay. SP
