About the property

Fantastic Luxury Home - Oceanfront AND Soundfront! Perfect family vacation spot.

Welcome to the famous LandShark Beach House on beautiful Hatteras Island, North Carolina. Make sure to search for the Land Shark Beach House page on Facebook for much more information and year round deals! Send us a message there for more information.

This lovely vacation home has almost everything you could ask for, including expansive, unobstructed views of both the ocean and sound. Head out the front door for a quick walk to the beach or stroll to the sound from your backyard. Few homes on the Outer Banks can boast such easy access to both bodies of water.

After a long day at the beach, head to your pool area for more fun! Relax in the bubbling hot tub, cool off in the large private pool with waterfall and let the kids splash around in the kiddie pool. A Tiki Bar is ready for entertaining. Near the pool you'll find an outdoor shower with hot and cold water as well as a convenient fish cleaning table. Behind the pool area, the nearby sound access provides an easy launch point for kayaking, kiteboarding, and windsurfing. The Private Pool is generally open from mid-May through early October. Feel free to contact us if you'd like to verify availability for specific dates and check out the Land Shark Beach House Facebook page for more information!

Arriving at LandShark, you'll first notice the concrete driveway with parking for two vehicles underneath the house, as well as ample parking for additional vehicles.

Level 1:

The first floor game room offers a pool table, poker table, wet bar/kitchenette, full size refrigerator with ice maker and microwave. When you need a break from the sun, enjoy the adjacent private 3D home theater room with an 80' Smart Flatscreen TV with Cinema surround sound and a 3D Blu-Ray player. We provide several 3D movies for your enjoyment (like Avatar, Finding Nemo, The Avengers and Gravity), along with a supply of 3D glasses. We also supply a large collection of other recent Blu-Ray and DVD movies. Two bedrooms, one queen and the other with two sets of bunks, are also found on this floor (the queen bedroom is handicap accessible).

Level 2:

The second floor has three king bedrooms, each with a private bath, as well as the bonus room with sleeper sofa, a TV and PS3 video game system. PS3 games are not provided - please bring your own.

Level 3:

The top floor features an impressive great room with ample seating and a fireplace. In the Living Room, there is a pull-out sleeper sofa and two twin sleeper chairs. Pillows and linens for the sleeper sofas and chairs at LandShark can be rented from Shore Details, or you can bring your own. The kitchen has stainless steel gourmet appliances, tile floor, granite counter tops, custom cabinets and a breakfast bar with seating for 6. Just a few steps up from the great room is the home office, the highest room in the house, with a work station (bring your own laptop), whole house WIFI and remarkable views of the ocean. The master king bedroom suite is also found on the top floor.

Access to decks overlooking the ocean or sound are in every bedroom of the house. We provide a high chair, porta crib and baby gate.

In the prime seasons (June-August), linens are provided for every bed and the beds are made before you arrive. Additional linens are available for rent from Shore Details at a reasonable cost for the pull-out sleeper sofas and the 2 sleeper chairs. Also in the prime seasons, fourteen luxurious, plush bath towel sets are provided for each bathroom. In all other seasons, and if your occupancy exceeds 14 during the prime seasons, you can rent high quality linens and towel sets at a reasonable cost, or bring your own from home.

The location of this house allows you great privacy, but is still close to shops and restaurants, charter fishing, and the Ocracoke Ferry Terminal and Hatteras Village and Frisco.

Each bedroom has a sliding door out to large, private decks with fantastic views of the sound or ocean.

Land Shark will make your beach vacation a memorable one for the entire family and your favorite dog. Check us out on Facebook for more photos, reviews and information. Just search Land Shark Beach House on Facebook!

About Tim Fraelich

We live in Northeast Ohio and fell in love with Hatteras Village several years ago. It truly is 'Mayberry by the Sea.' A small, friendly village without the busy, crowded beaches that you find elsewhere. We bought this house in 2011 and have done everything possible to make it a clean, well appointed, comfortable vacation home for ourselves, our friends and our guests. Guest suggestions are always taken to heart. We know that you work hard and many of you only get a single vacation week. For that reason, we try to make your stay one that you and your friends and families will remember. Thus, many of our guests stay with us again and again.

Why Tim Fraelich chose Hatteras Island

Land Shark has everything. Game room, Elevator, 3D Home Theater, Video Game Room, Pool, Hot Tub, Tiki Bar, Chef's Kitchen and 6 bedrooms in individualized themes with comfortable mattresses and premium pillows and bedding.

What makes this house unique

One of a handful of homes on the entire Outer Banks that is both Oceanfront and Soundfront! You can literally see beautiful, blue water no matter what window you're looking out of.

Beautiful views of sound and Ocean

  • 4 of 5

We rented The Landshark for a multi family Christmas celebration. The house was fabulous for our gathering of 13. The theater room, with expansive movie collection, was a huge hit! The kitchen was very well stocked! We had a great visit!

The elevator was not working properly and only one burner on the weber grill. Otherwise, I would give the property 5 stars.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at LandShark. I wish you had either contacted either me or Shore Details about the issues that you had with the grill and the elevator. The Information Sheet we provided you before your stay specifically mentioned that you should call if you encountered any maintenance issues. We pride ourselves on being very responsive to any problems and we often can't respond to things unless they are brought to our attention.

Excellent location for outer banks vacation and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Wife sent me to the outer banks for a mini vacation to relax before up coming surgery. The home I rented from homeaway was more than I could of wished for. The LandShark was more than a place to relax, it was a place of calm, tranquility and peacefulness. It had all that I needed, as I never had to leave the home. From a media room, where I watched 3D movies at night, To the beautiful top floor views of the ocean and the sound that I had all day. I even played myself a game of eight ball on the pool table, that was tastefully set in a game room. ( First time I ever won). This home is more suited for a large family. So if your looking for a wonderful vacation spot on the outer banks, and want to be close to all that the outer banks have to offer I would recommend this home for your next family gathering. I was lucky enough to meet the owner Tim, while I was there. I promise you this, that you will never meet a more graceful host than this man. I will be back this spring, with wife in tow next time around. Until then, Happy Holidays

Owner's Response: Jeff, It was a real pleasure to host you for your short stay at LandShark and even a greater pleasure to meet you in person. After your surgery is completed and you are on the road to recovery, please contact me to arrange another visit to beautiful Hatteras Island. My best wishes for a Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Beautiful House, Beautiful Place!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (and their families) had a wonderful week at Hatteras Village by staying at the Famous Landshark. We had no need to leave the property if we didn't want to, but what a beautiful setting.... there is so much to do and so much to see! Many thanks for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home!

Beautiful House and great homeowners!!

  • 4 of 5

I think we were the last ones in the house before the storm got too bad, glad we got out early before it got too bad. We enjoyed the few days of vacation we were able to get in before the weather took a turn for the worse. If it wasn't for NC-12 being so susceptible to flooding we would have pushed our luck staying another day but decided to play it safe. It's a shame because the house was beautiful!!

The house was amazing, the kitchen table was beautiful and big and perfect for large families whether they are eating or playing board games or cards. The movie theater was the best room in the house with the pool room a close second. Every bedroom was setup perfectly with plenty of space. Shore details was very quick to respond when we called about a few small things we found upon our initial arrival and the homeowners were very quick to respond with any questions or requests. After we left in a hurry to get out before the hurricane arrived we realized that my niece had left a necklace in the media loft. I contacted the homeowner Tim and asked if he could send someone from shore details over and possibly mail it to us and the next day he called to say the necklace had been found and they would be mailing it out to us. Fantastic!!

The only downside is being set farther back up against the sound side. You don't get a great view of the beach unless you are on the top floor. To access the beach you have to walk down the driveway and across the street (but I think this is fairly common for the hatteras area) which can be a bit cumbersome with a large family full of kids.

Simply Outstanding in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, we would like to thank the owner for giving us the chance to stay in this wonderful house. Upon our arrival, first impressions of the house was that it was bigger than we imagined, spotless clean and just perfect in every way. We were all in love with the theater room, watched movies almost every night. We also put the pool table, swimming pool and hot tub to good use. The views of the Sound from the kitchen were outstanding. On the morning of our last day, we stood in the living room, looking out into the ocean and could see dolphins swimming around. Our favorite thing about this vacation, by far, was the short walk across the road to an empty, uncrowded beach. It was wonderful to be seemingly alone on the beach, never too close to anyone else. We also drove down to the 4x4 beach and did plenty of shelling and fishing. The small town of Hatteras Village was very charming. We took the ferry to Ocracoke, which is a nice quiet little town, plenty of shops and places to explore. We would definitely recommend this house and this location. If you are looking for a slow-paced, relaxing vacation with beautiful views, this is the place.

Overall good.

  • 4 of 5

The construction in the lot in front is taking away some of the view. If the other lot is built on Landshark will be landlocked. The house is showing some maintenance issues but it is the end of the season. The hurricane could have wiped our vacation almost totally out. It was however saved by the GREAT people at Shore Details. Without these people fixing the pool, hot tub, grill and other things it would have been.

Owner's Response: Hurricane Hermine, which occurred during your stay, caused record flooding in the southern end of Hatteras Island and filled the pool at LandShark with water from the Sound and destroyed two of the pumps in the hot tub. We authorized Shore Details to spare no cost to get these items up and running again for you. They are a remarkably customer oriented company and we value them enormously. Thanks for recognizing them in your review.
