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 much for sharing your beautiful home with us. The unit had everything we needed for a comfortable week. The unit was very clean and organized. We enjoyed our first time here. Thank you again. Also, the best thing for us was having the beach so close we could walk everyday. This place is amazing!

Super clean and neat!

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean, organized and was equipped with all that we needed for our first visit to the Outer Banks. Having the ocean so close that you could hear the waves in the evening on the back deck was amazing. We enjoyed being able to walk to the beach everyday. We had a great week and look forward to returning in the future.

We LOVE staying at Soul Soother

  • 5 of 5

Jeanette and John are the perfect hosts!! We absolutely loved our stay at Soul Soother. The apartment was clean and well appointed with sooo many amenities.

The ocean is literally right across the road, and the rental location is close to so many "must see" places on the outer banks.

We would love to come back!!

Soul Soother is a must!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we stayed at the soul soother and we were very pleased with the hospitality. We enjoyed our stay so much the first time my husband and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to book it again! The luxury of having your own pool and hot tub is amazing. The short walk to the beach was very covenient for our morning beach outings. John and Jeannette are amazing hosts and really make you feel at home. This time around I was six months pregnant and still felt comfortable in the bed! It did rain two days out of our stay but we found that traveling the island was very entertaining. I highly recommend this get away for anyone who is looking to have a peaceful, private, and relaxing vacation!

A REAL "Soul Soother"

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic find! A cozy place to stay. We had a quiet deck to watch the sun go down, a pool, a jacuzzi, a fire pit, bikes to ride, beach chairs to lounge with, and all you could ask for in an apartment. The house also has a nice size backyard. The beach is so close and not ever crowded. We were there on Memorial Day weekend and had the beach to ourselves. We recommend this little hide-away to anyone wanting a quiet romantic stay. Thank you so much to owners. Fantastic little retreat.

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.
