About the Property

Studio, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Cozy And Perfect For 2

Island Time is our new little slice of paradise in the Outer Banks. It's small so we have done everything to utilize the space as efficiently and artistically as possible. It's very cheerful, clean and we think it's just the perfect little getaway place.

We've had lots of honeymooners and many repeat visitors over the years at our Quality Time Studio nearby, and will continue doing our best to ensure our guests have a vacation to remember at our new place.

Spend some time experiencing the wonders of Cape Hatteras at your doorstep. Relax on our roof top deck under the brightest stars you will ever see or take a sunrise walk and watch the dolphins swim in the surf.

Island Time is a free standing Studio on stilts with parking underneath providing you a private hide-a-way on the beach. Our brand new queen size Serta Perfect Sleeper will ensure you get a good nights sleep.

Dan and I love to cook so the kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals or entertain. The local restaurants are wonderful too with fresh local seafood. There are charcoal grills and picnic tables outside for the grill masters among you.

We provide beach chairs and umbrellas so take off that watch and relax into Island Time.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: I have family in Hatteras and have been going to Hatteras since I was a small child. My husband Dan was raised on a finger lake in NY so we both have a love of the water. We stayed at the Cabanas in the summer of 2006 and were hooked. We had 4 units filled with family and friends and enjoyed the privacy of the individual units over the big beach houses we had rented before. We bought #32 on my birthday later that same year. So now 8 years later we've been lucky enough to buy a second Cabana, #24 and we are calling this Cabana Island Time. We all need to unwind from everyday stresses and there is no better place on earth than Hatteras to relax and recharge our batteries. We hope the sunny skies and endless beaches will help you relax and reset your pace to a slower speed for a while. Dan and I love fishing and Hatteras offers a of variety of options. Surf casting from the beach has provided many lunches of Trout, Pompano, Puppy Drum, Flounder etc. There are head boats and charters a plenty. Our favorite is the Stormy Petrel. It is huge and can take the whole family out deep sea fishing.

Why the Owner Chose Hatteras, NC, USA:
Dan proposed to me on one knee at the top of Hatteras Lighthouse in 1997 before it was moved. This area holds so many special memories for us and we hope your time here will enrich your lives as much as it has ours.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Driving on the beach is too much fun!! It's a must do if you have a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Beach combing, horseback riding on the beach, kite surfing, kayaking, long walks on the beach etc. Fishing, driving on the beach and camp fires require permits so please follow the local laws governing these activities. Permits are available at the Lighthouse in Buxton.
