About Judy Basnett

This picture is of my beautiful family taken out back of the cottages on the sound on our 45th wedding anniversary. Aren't those grandchildren BEAUTIFUL. I know you said YES. My husband and myself and our families have lived here for generations. We are true natives.

Why Judy Basnett chose Hatteras Island

There are three cottages listed with VRBO on this property Cottage A (615640) Osprey- Cottage B (606610) White Heron and Cottage C (615818) Light Keepers Quarters. Next Season the House on the Great Ridge will be available for rent. Check them all out! Click on each cottage and see the 20 some pictures available of the cottages inside and out.

They are all centrally located to the beach, restaurants, shopping and grocery stores. The cottages are very well maintained and our linens are done in house.

What makes this cottage unique

In this cottage you have the best of both the ocean and the sound. The Pamlico Sound is directly behind the cottages. Great for swimming, kayaking, canoeing, wind surfing, fishing, just having a good time and it is very private. The beach is only one mile from the cottage along with the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse and Museum of the Sea.

The cottage is located 10 miles from the free ferry ride that takes you to Ocracoke, the next lsland over. Great sightseeing tour, wild ponies and very quaint little village steeped in history.

Very clean and up to date

  • 4 of 5

We arrived almost an hour early and Judy let us check in as soon as cleaning people done. Close to beaches, we went to 4 different ones. A short walk to the sound. We had 4 adults and were able to work around the 1 bathroom.

great place to stay for a getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house and Buxton, NC! The house was very clean and comfortable. A/C works great, which was good since it was HOT. You can catch crabs in the back yard-- we caught several blue crabs and cooked and ate them!

Would definitely stay here again! Thank you, Judy!

Fantastic place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Family of 3 stayed at Cottage "A" Osprey and couldn't be happier with the property. Judy was very quick to respond to any question and offered an early check in with the cottage ready for our stay. This cottage is located on a very quiet street just off the main road in Buxton. Privacy is great with a canal in the back and wooded lots to the left. The outdoor shower and covered parking under the property is very nice. Inside was absolutely spotless with every amenity needed for cooking and comfortable living. Don't hesitate to book and enjoy all the excellent activities offered by this part of the Outer Banks. We'll be back!!

We arrived early for a fishing trip with some co workers and we showed up early, she had no problem that we were here. We actually came a week after hurricane Matthew and the house was ready and the yard picked up and no sign of any damage. Will definitely stay again if it's available for the time frame again.

Thank you George and Judy for your hospitality.
