About the property

Ocean Front, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 9 , Pet Friendly



We Grew Up In Central North Carolina, But We've Called Hatteras Island Our Second Home. 'Beach House' Is Just Steps Away From The Sandy Beach And Atlantic Ocean. We Purchased Beach House In Early May 2014 And Have Spent Our Time Ensuring It Is Perfect For The Upcoming Season. We Are Both North Carolina Contractors And Our Goal Is To Ensure Beach House Is Perfect. We Have Two Other Ocean Front Homes, Both In Rodanthe, Part Of The Tri-village That Includes Salvo And Waves. 'Mermaid's Tears' Is Listed Under VRBO #426760 And 'Rose Cottage' Is Found at VRBO # 403480. We Encourage Prospective Guests To Visit These Listings And Read Our Positive Guest Comments/feedback.

(Access These Properties By Going To 'My Rental Listings' Below At 'contact Us') Beach House Encompasses A Reversed House Plan Which Is Very Common To Many Homes Along The Outer Banks. This Simply Means That The Living Area, Ie, Kitchen, Dining And Living Room Are Located On The Highest Level.

Our Second Floor Level Of Beach House Includes A Very Comfortable Living Open Area With Skylights And Gas Fireplace, A Flat Screen Tv/dvd. A Large Sectional Couch Faces An 8' Window/door Slider For A Magnificent View Of The Ocean. The Dining Area, Which Actually Encompasses Two Areas And Open To The Living Area, Has Seating For Ten. The Modern Kitchen Has All Cooking Needs Should One Decide Never To Venture Out To Any Of The Great Restaurants In The Area. There Is Also Counter Seating For Three. There Is A Very Nice King Bedroom Upstairs With Connecting Bath And Large Shower. This Bedroom Has Its Own Entrance/exit To The Outside Oceanfront Deck. A Flat Screen Tv And Dvd Are Also In This Bedroom. There Is Also A Half Bath Upstairs Which Shares A Washer And Dryer.

Three Of Our Bedrooms Are Downstairs. Another Master Bedroom Has A King Bed With A Large Bathroom With Shower And Jacuzzi Tub. The Outside Door Leads To A Deck And Access To the ocean. This Bedroom Has A Flat Screen Tv And Dvd. Another Bedroom Downstairs, Very Spacious With A Queen Bed, Has Two Large Windows And A View Of The Ocean. This Bedroom Has A Flat Screen Tv And Dvd. The Third Bedroom On The Downstairs Level Has A Queen Bed. This Bedroom Has Two Windows; One With A View Of The Ocean, The Other A View Of The Sound In The Distance. This Bedroom Also Has A Flat Screen Tv And Dvd. Both Queen Bedrooms Share A Full Bathroom. Also, Downstairs Is A Nice Welcoming Foyer.

Beach House Has Two Furnished Sundecks And Two Screened Porches. Vacation Guests Will Find Plenty Of Conveniences Outside, Including Two Outdoor Showers, Basketball Goal And A Dog Run. Enjoy Grilling Out On The Charcoal Grill. Beach House Also Has Wireless Internet For Your Laptop.

While Staying In Beach House, Exploring Is A Must. Hatteras Island Is Simply The Most Beautiful Place On Earth - Where The Atlantic Ocean And Pamlico Sound Is Separated By A Thin, Fragile Slice Of Land. Hatteras Lighthouse, Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge, The Graveyard Of The Atlantic Museum, Small Villages Of Avon, Buxton, Waves, Frisco And Salvo Are All Within A Short Drive.

In Rodanthe, Explore The Chicamacomico Life-saving Station Museum, Civil War Battle Of Chicmacomico Races, And Try To Identify Each Of The Over 400 Species Of Birds. Or Simple Lay Back And Enjoy Reading And Watching The Surf.

Terrific Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This is a GREAT house on the beach. The views were beautiful and the pictures can not do it justice. We were totally comfortable staying here and really appreciated the new deck as well as the new doors and windows. The property was clean and well maintained. I absolutely recommend this house and plan on coming back again in the future. THIS WAS A FIVE STAR VACATION....Thanks!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the five star review....and hope we earned much maintenance and repairs for ocean front properties, and so glad you noticed and made reference to....we are NC Licensed Contractors (albeit retired) and we always put our past skills into play to make vacation time for our guests memorable, pleasant and enjoyable. Thank you for recommending Beach House to potential guests as we know that recommendation goes a long, long way. Best to you and your family and safe returns to the Outer Banks.

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here April 8-15, 2017. The house is nice & they are in the process of adding new decks. The kitchen is small, but if you read the reviews, you know that prior to reserving the house. The house was clean enough, but there was a lot of pet hair on the rugs upstairs. The Wifi was horrible & you could not connect in the upstairs bedroom. You had to connect in the dining area or living room & you almost always were kicked off within a few minutes. The problem in the upstairs bedroom is the sheets will not stay on the bed. The sheets came off every night & often the mattress pad would come off with it. Not a deal breaker, just a nuisance. Maybe the pockets on the sheets are not deep enough. Location is great, nice decks & everyone agreed they would definitely stay again. We had a great week and really enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to write a very nice review. On the positive, both the top and the bottom decks have been replaced as well as all of the windows and sliders. We've also replaced most of the flooring and/or tile... a must for ocean front property. We have had a conversation with our cleaners and Property manager regarding preparing the house each week for each guest. Sometimes they do slip up, and we always encourage guests to contact them to get it or re-vacuuming or replacing sheets and towels. Our Property Manager is great at making things RIGHT and they will do so with smiles. They stay busy and will always help out. Thanks again and so glad you will return to Beach House and the Outer Banks.

Great ocean views

  • 5 of 5

First visit to Outer Banks, weather not ideal, but still had a great time. First time to see it snowing at the beach!

House was great , roomy and had everything we needed. Only hiccup was the downstairs heating unit had an issue, but was fixed within hours after calling Shorelines.

Thank you for sharing your rental with us. One day we hope to return during a warmer time of the year to the Outer Banks.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the great review. Although we don't accept maintenance issues for our guests, we do know they occur, especially on Ocean Front Properties. We are sorry for the issue with the downstairs heat, but thankful it was quickly fixed by our Property Manager, Shore Details. You did experience a first as it rarely snows on the Outer Banks. Please plan a reunion soon to Beach House and Rodanthe/Waves.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking time to write a favorable review about Beach House. We are also pleased your family chose to spend time during the Holiday Season at Beach House and in the Outer Banks. We hope you will return in the near future....we will be replacing both decks and upgrading the kitchen. We have already replaced the master bedroom furniture and flooring in two of the downstairs bedrooms. Always something to work on....but we love making improvements and keeping Beach House perfect and always impressive for our guests!

Perfect for Friendsgiving.

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for the great stay! Great location and space right on the beach. Had everything we needed to cook Thanksgiving dinner. Quick response when the fireplace had issues (gale force winds blew out the pilot - quick fix). While it was a slow season, we liked the quiet.
