Property description

Are you looking for an alternative to a ‘big company’ vacation rental? We invite you to share our duplex, just 3 lots off the beach in Buxton, NC. If you’re looking for the rare combination of a quiet location with easy beach access, as well as the convenience of being able to walk to shops, restaurants, a bait and tackle shop and putt putt – you’ve found it in Stones Throw. Our’s is a family owned duplex, managed by ourselves from just 5 doors away on Cottage Avenue.

Both levels of our duplex are customized to cater to couples, both young and old. The bottom level accomodations offer 1BR and study, a spacious bathroom, galley kitchen (expect new appliances and counter tops when you arrive!) and living room. We supply all linens, towels (including beach towels), soap products, kitchen supplies, and even a hair dryer! For your entertainment, we include free WiFi, TV;s in the living room and bedroom (Dish) and DVD player. Of course, you’ll have your own washer, dryer, iron and ironing board.

Outside, you have the use of the outside shower (hot and cold water with separate foot spray) and fish cleaning table. Each level has a dedicated park grill located on opposite sides of the property for grilling privacy.

200 feet from getting wet, a lighthouse that sweeps the neighborhood and the ever-present sounds of the ocean serve as constant reminders that you are truly at the beach!

As we live just down the street, we believe we offer both the attention and privacy you need to make your vacation special.

New for 2017: No damage deposit required!

If you prefer ocean view and don't mind stairs, consider our upstairs unit also listed with VRBO, #462218.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Vacationers to the OBX since the 60's, we bought our first beach house in kill devil hills, then mistakenly sold it for a lakefront property on lake champlain (where the water is NEVER warm). having learned our lesson, this is our second and our favorite beach house. 2013 was our first year in the VRBO family of vacation rentals. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience!

Why the Owner Chose Buxton, NC, USA:
Location is excellent, just steps from the beach. Our goal is to provide spacious living for couples and the privacy that goes along with it. Although built in the 60's, our duplex has largely been renovated for the benefit of our guests.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Cottage Ave is the locals' favorite beach, a dead-end street that disappears into the sand and waves. The neighborhood is quiet, the ocean sounds drown out all distractions, and you have all the conveniences of home (except for a garage).
