Check your flight plan online with a full video tour and pictures! See what other guests have to say about the Sky Club in the traveler reviews section and don’t forget to like us on Facebook.

Why choose the Sky Club?

The Sky Club is located in Rodanthe, one of the narrowest sections of the OBX. Your stay at the Sky Club includes wraparound decks and incredible views of the Pamilico Sound - breathtaking sunsets included! Guests will be treated to 100 yards of secluded Pamlico Sound frontage to swim, fish or play using the owner-provided kayaks! Then, it is only a short walk or ride to the breathtaking beach of the Atlantic Ocean. There you can relax all day with lightweight beach chairs and umbrellas provided for you as our guest. There are no long paths across dunes to struggle with on this part of the island and the path is paved. You can ride there in style on the bikes we provide for you as our special guests,

Inside the Sky Club enjoy a well-appointed, stadium-style kitchen, spacious centralized family room, comfortable beds for up to eight guests and best of all, a single story ranch floor plan! Not only is the Sky Club newly renovated, it is clean, non-smoking and pet free! You can stay connected with complimentary internet access or unplug and tour the villages on the bikes we provide just for you. Sit back, relax and make your vacation a first class experience at the Sky Club.

What to expect at the Sky Club from a Parent’s Perspective:

The Sky Club is packed with extras to keep everyone busy! From sand toys to bikes, Kayak’s, and Stand Up Paddleboards your family will have plenty to do and you won’t have to pack, or worse rent, all of the toys that make life at the beach more fun. There are even beach chairs and beach umbrellas for the whole family!

From the best tanning deck on the house you can watch kids play safely on the beach of the shallow-water Sound. They can spend hours trying to catch hermit crabs and minnows while you catch up on your tan and favorite book.

Walkie-Talkies are available for kids if they take a bike ride to the corner store, so you can give them a little freedom but still keep in touch. And, the walkie-talkies work from the house to both the Ocean Beach and the Sound Beach for older kids.

The fully equipped kitchen means you can save a fortune on restaurant meals and teenagers can eat their late night cereal and frozen pizza. Save buying the bulky but essential items such as napkins, tin foil, saran wrap, toilet paper, and cleaning supplies... these are provided for your convenience. And when you decide to eat out, the local restaurants are family friendly, reasonably priced and amazing.

What to expect at the Sky Club as a Watersport Enthusiast:

The Sky Club has 100 yards of private Soundfront water access including a grassy rigging area for every water sport. As a windsurfer and kiteboarder who has been coming to the Outer Banks for 30 years, there is no better Sound access on Hatteras Island. The winds from the S to NNE are ideal for kite and windsurf launching at the house. As winds go NE to SE, you can launch directly across the street on the Ocean side.

The house includes a ground floor storage area with equipment racks. A cleaning station and outside shower are outside under the house. You can clean up our gear so that it is ready the next day. Rigging, launching, and storing your gear will be a breeze at the Sky Club.

This house really caters to those who want access to the Sound and Ocean for watersports. When the wind is not blowing, the Sky Club still delivers with 3 kayaks and 6 bikes for cruising the island. And of course, no trip to Hatteras Island is complete without a visit to the local surf shops. Fortunately, Real Watersports, Kitty Hawk Kites, and other shops are all within a few miles.

What to expect at the Sky Club from a Fishing Perspective:

Why settle for the Ocean or Sound when you can have them both! The Sky Club is located on a very narrow segment of the island providing access to both Ocean and Sound fishing. If your target is inlet fishing, “Oregon Inlet” and the “New New Inlet” are just north of the Sky Club.

Convenient storage areas make unloading and storing your gear simple. A deluxe, outdoor fish-cleaning table makes prep a breeze. Bring your casting net as bait can easily be caught along the shore of the Sound. If you prefer to buy bait, or need to update your fishing gear, several bait and tackle shops are just down the street including, Hatteras Jack.

Offshore Fishing Charters are available from nearby Oregon Inlet or head south to the Hatteras Inlet. The Sky Club is a dream vacation spot for the avid fishing enthusiast and novices alike.

About Mark Haines

The Sky Club is the latest vacation home offering from Mark Haines and his wife Adria, owners of the nearby Frequent Flyer (vrbo#430547). The Frequent Flyer was named after the owner’s favorite pastime (well, he would argue it is not a pastime but a lifestyle) kiteboarding, and the way he earned his kiteboard time: traveling more than 1.5 million miles by air, working for an engineering company. Their latest posh beach home, Sky Club, not only continues their fun play-on-words naming convention (sky club being a sophisticated respite for the high-flying elite, but in this case kite flying) but also the well appointed beach home away from home visitors to the OBX enjoy. Mark, an avid windsurfer from back in the early eighties, started kiting in 2000 and quickly became an addict. He soon became a new type of Frequent Flyer, earning miles of airtime boosting, popping, jumping, and soaring over the Pamlico Sound. Mark is now enjoying his status staying at the expertly appointed Sky Club when not sharing it with guests.

Mark Haines purchased this house in 2013

Why Mark Haines chose Rodanthe

This property is the most unique we have seen in the OBX. The obvious attractions of a long, private, manicured sound-side beachfront (perfect for rigging) is only part of the infatuation. More importantly, this cozy beach cottage accommodates family. We could not resist the ranch home layout. It is unique here as most homes are giant with reversed floor plans and lots of steps to climb (or protect kids from). We found this home to be perfect for families with small children and parents with infants.

What makes this house unique

As a windsurfer and kiteboarder who has been coming to the Outer Banks for 30 years, there is no better Sound access for rigging and launching on Hatteras Island than what the Sky Club offers. The spot is a dream come true for Mark and Sky Club guests.

Amazing beauty all around

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely one of the most peaceful and beautiful places I've found. The owner rule cares about his guests. Making sure everything is just right. What I love about it the beautiful sunsets, the owner has three kayaks, 2 paddleboards, 5 bikes. I'm so happy I found The Sky Club. This was our second year staying here and we will continue to come.

Thank you Mark for everything, The Stone Family

Great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We ended up having a great vacation at the house - arrived just in time for the beautiful sunset on Saturday night. Make sure to get groceries on your way as it is at least 30 minutes to a large grocery store. Small items are a quick walk away at the general store. We did a lot of cooking in the house and the kitchen was perfectly stocked.

Have a question it is probably labeled somewhere but if not, Mark is a quick text away.

Layout of the house was perfect for our split family. Having the bikes, chairs, kayaks and paddle boards was key to our relaxing vacation. Thanks!

Power outage caused us to loose 2 days plus loss of refrigerated food.

  • 1 of 5

Our stay was nice until the power outage. Loosing 2 days of vacation was terrible. I would think we would be entitled to a partial reimbursement but am not getting any response?????

Owner's Response: The entire island being with out power because of the negligence of the construction company resulted in a mandatory evacuation. Those who purchased the recommended travel insurance offered though VRBO are covered. As we discussed before you decided to leave, you were eligible for the VRBO Book with Confidence Guarantee which provides you with alternative housing for the rest of your vacation in a situation like this. While I understand the frustration both of us had trying to get in touch with VRBO during the day of the outage, my hope is they will respond to your case # with some form of reimbursement. It will take time to understand additional reimbursement options which may become available. I will forward you additional information via text. I apologize again for the abrupt end to your vacation.

Still great on 3rd visit!

  • 5 of 5

Our group, 5 adults and 2 children, returned to Sky Club for the 3rd time in the last 4 years 7/15-22. Mark makes vacationing so easy! The amenities provided (bikes, kayaks, paddle boards the grill, and corn hole boards) meant we had to bring just us and our food! The sunrises and sunsets were awesome, and everything "advertised" was provided. We absolutely love it there, and plan to return again next summer.

Sky Club rocks!

  • 5 of 5

My family of five had a wonderful vacation in Rodanthe! The Sky Club was absolutely perfect for us and had everything we needed for a fun active week. It was so great not to rent or have to bring bikes, paddle boards, kayaks, beach chairs...everything was there which made it so relaxing. Kids ranged in age from 2 to 14 and there was something for everyone. Paddle boarding and kayaking every morning, beaching in the afternoon, bike rides. The house is the perfect beach house, older but with all the amenities we could have needed. The view was amazing and such a bonus. Plan ahead on groceries and alcohol, about 30 minutes away (smaller stores for basics nearby). The outdoor showers are awesome, none of us showered inside all week. Mark was great, super responsive and available for all of our questions. We loved it, absolutely would recommend Sky Club if you want a beautiful, slightly out of the way (which we really wanted), active and relaxing vacation. Thank you, Mark!

Perfect spot in the OBX

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four just spent our first vacation in the OBX at the Sky Club and we had a wonderful time. The house was well appointed, immaculate and perfectly located between the sound and the ocean. The location is quiet and private. The sunsets were beautiful!!!
