Our Story

Over 25 years ago our family took our first beach vacation in Virginia Beach. It wasn’t long before we heard about the Outer Banks and landed in Duck for several family reunions. When friends invited us to join them in Hatteras, the warm water (just off the gulf stream) and natural environment kept us coming back. We never dreamed that we would own a home in our haven away from home. We continue to make memories here, including once a year when our whole family comes (over 100 people) for a family reunion. Summer Place is a perfect spot for renting several homes and meeting up with everyone on the beach!

We enjoy making the house a fun place to share with others, constantly making improvements, anticipating what guest might enjoy.

Some of the Reasons Hatteras is so Popular:

* #1 Family Beach Vacation - US News and World Report

* Top 10 Best USA Beach - Dr. Beach

* 10 Best Island Escapes You Can Drive To - USA Today

* Famous Cape Hatteras Lighthouse only 10 miles away

* Surf fishing and world-famous Hatteras Marinas - 2 miles away (off-shore/in-shore fishing)

* Four wheel driving on the beach

* Free ferry to Ocracoke Island for day visit

About Midgett Realty

This is our family of 6 plus our dog a few years ago. We love Hatteras and enjoy swimming and walking on the beach. There is a shipwreck (from 1890's) that is still visible in the surf about 400 yards south from our beach location - an easy walk. Hatteras has post office, library, grocery, famous marina and restaurants within a mile. Fall is a great time to visit since prices are lower and weather is still great plus the water is warm!

Midgett Realty purchased this house in 2001

Why Midgett Realty chose Hatteras

After our first visit, we were hooked! Great family atmosphere! See over 40 pictures of Families are Forever via 'Link to More Information on this page'!

Great vacation home! Already planning our next stay here!

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed a week of vacation with my family this past Summer (2015). Staying at Families are Forever was wonderful. The house is very clean and has lots of amenities. TV's in every room, internet, beautiful view from the top-deck. It is well priced and affordable - can't beat it. Beach is right across the street. Enjoyed breakfast and lunch on the patio on the top deck. There are 2 outdoor showers which are great for after coming back from a day at the beach. Star-gazing at night from the deck chairs was fun. It is pet-friendly which was perfect for our small dogs. We are already planning to return to Families are Forever next year.

Excellent vacation home! We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

We had our family reunion at Families are Forever and absolutely loved our stay here. Everything from boogie boards to beach chairs to lots of deck seating to enjoy the breeze made our time there enjoyable! Families are Forever is well equipped with basic kitchen items and even spices to use - that was really helpful when cooking! The rooms are beautifully decorated. The hammock on the first floor and the chair hammock on the second floor are also nice in the evening. The hot tub and pool are great for the kids or the teens. We especially appreciated the outside stairs going from the ground to the top floor. The porch off of the kitchen was perfect for morning breakfasts to watch the sunrise. It takes about 3.5 minutes to walk to the beach - a boardwalk is far from the end of the driveway. We have actually visited a couple of times -- in November and in June - and both seasons are unique for a trip to Hatteras. The water in June is perfectly refreshing! We also enjoyed our time in November - good weather and still beautiful sunrises and sunsets on the sound. You can see the sound and the ocean from the top deck of Families are Forever! We will surely stay at Families are Forever again! Thank you so much for a beautiful home and wonderful vacation!

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week at Families are Forever! The house was comfortable, clean, updated and simply beautiful! The location is perfect as you are across the street from the beautiful and spacious beach. We enjoyed the hot tub, and the various places on the decks to find some quiet places to read and relax. It was a little chilly for the pool, but we have used the pool on previous visits with our children and it is in great condition and a great size. The picnic table on the top deck was our favorite lunch spot everyday as you could view the ocean from the deck. We have stayed at Families are Forever several times with our family over the past several years and will continue to return to this home that is a bit of heaven on earth. We would highly recommend this home to any family looking for a great place to get away. The beach in Hatteras is wonderful, and you are close to the enchanting Okracoke island where you can bike, eat and shop. Hatteras and Families are Forever hold a very special place in our hearts.

Homey Hatteras

  • 5 of 5

It took only minutes to feel at home in this lovely house. The roomy layout allowed everyone to enjoy being together in comfort. Some of our children and grandchildren were with us. I was surprised to find everything we needed to prepare many of our meals and eat around the table. We relaxed in the hot tub. One of the hallways was a perfect location for my Grammie Games. A favorite spot was sitting on the deck watching the sun rise and reading to the sound of the crashing waves. The short distance to dig our shade umbrella in the sand and set up our chairs also allowed our smaller children to make needed trips back to the house on occasion. This little village was so peaceful. Several local spots added to making memories. We enjoyed nearby unique restaurants, Dinky's, Sonny's, and of course, great ice cream snacks. Looking throughout this home, the attention to detail assures you the owners care about your successful stay.

Lazy Days

  • 5 of 5

The entire group - three couples - with somewhat divers interests had a wonderful time. From just walking on the beach at sunrise, to cruising the Okracoke gift shops and restaurants, it was all great fun. Reading was an additional passtime that several of us thoroughly enjoyed - something that can be done in any location, but on a sun-drenched deck overlooking the ocean with all of the sounds, made it all the more enjoyable.
