About Richard McCray

Our parents bought the lot in the early fifties which began our family's visits to the island. From then until now various parts of the family have spent time there. Camping, staying in cottages, doing water sports, beachcombing, and relaxing. The house was built in the seventies. That enhanced the setting for all of us and, again, we continued to spent as much time as possible between our various responsibilities at our own widespread 'mainland' homes.

Throughout that time and to the present we have taken great pride in the house and have maintained it well. We have a local property manager who has helped maintain the house and work with guests. He has been doing that for more than 20 years.

Mom and dad are deceased now and Charles and I (Richard) are continuing the tradition and the standards set by our parents. We hope you consider the house in your vacation plans. We will be glad to answer any questions you may have about the house or the area.

Beautiful beach and great location!

  • 4 of 5

The house was really a home-- gorgeous wood everywhere, and lots of lovely little details. My one critique is the couches were not comfortable, for anyone with a back problem. Otherwise a fantastic experience!

Property was very spacious, had all the kitchen amenities, views of the ocean and washer and dryer was a bonus! Walking distance to the Cape Hatteras light house via beach! Nice property and location.

Amazing! Perfect for families with children or the couples who just want to relax.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed June 11 - June 18. We had 4 adults and 4 children. The accommodations and location surpassed our expectations. The house layout is perfect and everything is in great shape. The showers outside to wash off the sand are wonderful. The beach is really a short walk and it is not crowded. The appliances all are in great shape and work. There is a fish cleaning station that I do not think was mentioned in the description.

If something needs to be fixed the owners are on top of it. They genuinely care about your stay and Richard even called the house phone to make sure we were happy with everything.

This was our 2nd trip to OBX our first staying in the Hotel Cape Hatteras. We will not be doing that again.

We are already planning our next summers trip and we will be renting this little slice of heaven each time we do.

Great set-up

  • 5 of 5

We used this home for a small family reunion. It was as advertised and better. Great location five houses away from the beach. Plenty of amenities for our group. Nice layout with bedrooms downstairs and kitchen/family room upstairs. Cape Hatteras sightseeing is fantastic. The beach was never too crowded and we were there in the middle of July.

The owner was great to work with. Will totally stay here again!

close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

Nice with plenty of room although we were outside most of the time. Sleeping accommodations are great for lots of kids but still worked for 5 adults. Nice L shaped deck for sitting in the breeze and glimpsing at the ocean through the tall bushes and houses. Really is a short walk to the beach. Not far from the Ocracoke ferry but get there very early in the morning to miss the lines/long wait. Conner's is a great grocery store and deli.
