Why Natalie chose Hatteras Island

Breathtaking views, private beach access, convenient launch spot from the backyard for kiteboarding, windsurfing and kayaking, quaint fisherman village nearby with sailboats and fresh catch of the day perfect for a delightful dinner on the deck overlooking the sound, the sunset and the endless sky. An active day on the water ending in a hot tub with a glass of wine while taking in the scenery and unwinding - can't be beat. Outdoor showers are great! Biking in the area is a lot of fun and a good exercise. Koru Spa is a short walk down the street - get your massage, yoga etc. Tennis and swimming pool nearby 1.8 miles, you get to use our membership access with your house rental. House is directly on the Pamlico Sound. Beautiful sunsets. Perfect fishing, wind surfing, kite boarding. Nearby access to ocean beaches. This is the surfing and fishing capital of the East Coast.

Get Away From It All - The Perfect Bayfront Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This house was a great find for us in Outer Banks. We had two families with kids stay and it was plenty spacious, fairly convenient and very comfortable. All Outer Banks activities are within an hour drive, at most, but it was nice to come back to a quiet retreat after a day of activities. The views are breathtaking and the bay was so shallow that we could play in it everyday and still had fun. Our families had a great vacation and if you are looking for a great retreat from it all, this is the place for you too!

Great place for little kids

  • 5 of 5

The house was very spacious. Having direct access to the sound was great. The tide raised and lowered the water by about a foot. You can walk out into the sound at least 200 feet and only be waist deep for the average adult. Most of time the water was not deeper than 18" which is great for our kids. Kayak and standing board were used a lot. Kids ages 3-9 loved it so much that they did not want to got to the ocean side. Kids enjoyed catching crabs, clams, fish, and hermit grabs. We even saw a few sting rays and one snake. Lots of restaurants within a mile of the house. Recommend Ocean Bistro and The Mad Grabber. We did take out at both places as it gets back quickly. If you are going to eat there i recommend eating around 5pm otherwise you may have to wait. Having been to the outer banks before, staying Sunday to Sunday definitely reduces your time getting on and off the island. The house recently switched to Internet TV. The main TV had Roku. Not sure how the bedroom TVs work as their was not an account setup to access other internet providers. No big deal for us as we like to get away from TV while on vacation.

Great place for our family!

  • 5 of 5

Sound Mind and Body was a great get-away for our family. We were 5 adults; some of us stayed for 9 days. We loved the one large open living room/dining room/kitchen on the top floor with the deck on two sides and a fantastic, 180-degree view of Pamlico Sound. The Sound is much calmer than the ocean, and it had a calming effect on us! And the sunsets were wonderful, just as advertised! We also loved that there was a big dining table plus an eat-in counter with chairs plus a large round table -- we worked on quite a few of the jigsaw puzzles that come with the place, and the round table was perfect for that --plenty of room to spread out. The kitchen was well-equipped with things we needed - a coffeemaker, toaster, numerous pots and pans and utensils, and we counted 3 blenders! There are 4 bedrooms on the middle level and one on the bottom level. The owner was very responsive to a few small things. We enjoyed the hot tub but we didn't take advantage of the kayak. Nor did we use the health club nearby; instead, we did a lot of walking around this quiet neighborhood. (At least, it was quiet in November; not sure what it's like in high season). There were two gift shops within an easy walk and several good restaurants a little bit farther away but still walkable (we ate at Oceana's several times). On our walks we found old cemeteries everywhere, so we got a sense of the history of the place. Very lovely all around.

Endroit de rêve!

  • 5 of 5

Spot idéal pour le kite! Un balcon à faire rêver tous les matins!! Le chalet est super et accueillant! Nous avons tripper dans le sound, le vent était avec nous toute la semaine!!! Nous avons apprécié l'amémomètre, super pratique pour nous indiquer le vent!!!! Nous avions de la place pour partir nos kites directement sur notre terrain mais ça prends des petits bottillons parce qu'il y a des PIC PIC!! :)

Les couchés de soleil sont extraordinaire!!!!

Une grande table pour les repas de gang!! Le spa super agréable pour les fins de journée!!

Le chalet est simple mais il ne manque de rien! Le spot idéal pour le kite ou la planche!

Apportez vous papier de toilette, essuie tout, savon à vaisselle...!

Le service de spa rapide est efficace lorsqu'il y a des problèmes!!

Pour nous c'était une semaine parfaite!!!

Spa and Marina nearby. Quaint fisherman village with fish market nearby.

Very quiet, family friendly. Folks often ask me why I choose to be on the sound side instead of the ocean. It's a matter of personal preference, of course. But here are my thoughts:

Sound vs. Ocean side...

Sound side is more serene, relaxed and quiet and you don't feel like you are sharing your vacation with hundreds of other beach goers. Having said that if you want to mix and match you can always cross to the Ocean side - takes 5 min.

I am not an early riser, so even though I love sunrises on the ocean side I am not usually up that early to enjoy them, especially when on vacation. This makes the sunset displays off our deck one of the biggest highlights of this location.

If you have children in your party, depending on how old they are being on the Sound side can be a great advantage - no violent waves or rip currents to worry about. They can simply walk into the calm water and swim, play and enjoy. You also get the homey feel and a contained space where it is easier to watch the kids as it's just you and your family on the beach. Teenagers may want to do some kayaking, windsurfing, sailing or kiteboarding - all better suited for the sound side.

I also like the fact that you can walk to the local fisherman village, watch the sailboats and the simple life that goes on there - just a different feel, more local, less touristy. It's a matter of preference.

If you or your kids/family are into kitesurfing/windsurfing/kayaking/sailing - Sound side is the place to be! Prevailing winds are side-on-shore SW and the water is relatively shallow making it a safer environment for the wind/water sport enthusiasts to enjoy their hobbies. For surfers on the other hand, Oceanside location is certainly the place to be.

All that said, some folks prefer Oceanside locations and there are certainly plenty of gorgeous spots to choose from! Those are usually quite a bit more expensive though.
