About the property

Ocean Front, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 9 , Dog 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.

Fantastic Week with Family

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the "Beach House" for a week's vacation. The house was well appointed, clean and had fantastic views from both levels. The owner was extremely responsive to all questions leading up to our vacation and the cleaning service he utilizes was great in taking care of some items that were accidentally left behind. The check in and check out process was extremely easy.

Owner's Response: We appreciate you taking the time to submit a positive, 5 star rating for Beach House in Rodanthe/Waves. Our Property Manager is the best, and as you mentioned...the house was clean! Well appointed is Beverly's doings and she really is great and talented....always fixing, making things beautiful for our guests' stay. Thank you also for highlighting the check in and out process as it really is easy and hassles....we love getting questions, right up our ally as we've been to the Outer Banks over 50 giving our "advice"...thank you again and hope to see you back soon.

Everything you could ask for in a beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We were blown away by just how nice the beach house was! The pictures do it no justice. Usually in a rental you'll find one major thing you didn't like about it but everyone in our party agreed there was nothing we could find wrong with it! Even the water pressure was great! The outdoor showers were great for getting sand off before coming inside. The central

Air was a must for our family and the decks are all recently redone and brand new. With one baby gate we were easily able to baby proof the top floor (the little stones in the fireplace were a baby proofing challenge but we resolved that easy enough). If you are looking for a serene and out of the way beach getaway this place is what you want. The ONLY downfall if you are looking for more convenience is that it's about 30 minutes to Nags Head and 20-25 min from Avon. It's definitely the middle of nowhere but the longer we stayed the more we discovered in the local town to meet our needs (we went jet skiing, did some shopping and ate at Lisa's pizza place and Atlantic coast cafe) The only suggestion would be the walkway to the beach needs weeded/cleaned up a little that would help future guests (there are some burrs or prickers that are across the walkway, ouch). The beds were so comfy and the kitchen had everything you'd need! We cooked a lot at home and it saved us a bunch of money. The decor was all tied together beautifully, even the dishes were cool and stuck to ththe beach theme. Overall this house was fantastic and even better than we expected! Thank you!

Owner's Response: of the best reviews we've received for Beach House....thank you sooooo much for the very complete, descriptive and all inclusive much detail and information such that potential guests will have no problem deciding on whether or not to book. We make improvements to Beach House each off season; thereby, always staying ahead of problems and required maintenance. Thank you also for mentioning the new decks and railings....we could have gone another few years with the old deck/railing but we just wanted to make sure safety was in place sooner than later. Besides, the new, fresh decks look great. We hope you'll consider returning to the Outer Banks and Rodanthe/Waves and Beach House soon. You and your family are always welcome!

Perfect oceanfront beach house.

  • 5 of 5

The Beach House was fabulous. Enough room for our family of four (plus two dogs) to spread out. The kitchen is small but well equipped. Upon arrival we were amazed by the beautiful view. The house is clean and nicely decorated. We felt at home immediately. Bedrooms are comfortable. I would identify two bedrooms as "master" bedrooms; one on the lower floor and one on the upper level. The vinyl floor planking throughout the house made keeping the house clean very easy. Bathrooms were nicely sized and very clean. The upper and lower decks were so comfortable I didn't want to leave the house to take the short walk to the beach.My Brittany Spaniel and I particularly loved the ocean breeze from the porch swing. I'm afraid I'm not giving this house the best review it deserves. It was a glorious vacation filled with beautiful sunrises, relaxing ocean walks, and much needed family time in a home away from home.

Owner's Response: We are very happy your family enjoyed Beach House, and especially, that you found the house amenities to be your pleasure. We spend so much time, effort and energy trying to make this retreat a special and one of a kind experience for our guests....and we are so very eager to receive a nice review from our guests. In particular, we are pleased your Brittany Spaniel enjoyed the breeze on the porch....we want folks to know they should always bring their pets on vacation....and your review confirmed the efforts we take/demand of our cleaners to prepare each week in the finest condition possible. It is your earned vacation spot, and we become very happy to learn of a positive experience. Please return to the Outer Banks, Rodanthe and Beach House soon!

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!

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.
