Historic Hatteras Island Cottage in Buxton on Highway 12 Oceanside
About Dan Murphy
Family and God are the most important things in my life followed by my work then by snowboarding, then by surfing, then art, then a million other things that involve the ocean and being outside. I guess friends get lumped into family.
Dan Murphy purchased this House in 2011

Great location, lovely older house
The Buxton Ranch is located very close to the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse and the park beach access points. My husband and I rode bikes to the lighthouse and back on several mornings during our stay. The house is roomy and very clean. The house is older, but has clearly been remodeled in the kitchen and bathrooms. Owner Dan is very responsive to questions and needs.
This rating is a "high 4." The only reason it's not a 5 is that the house is older and it therefore has some idiosyncracies. Most importantly, the front door won't open from the outside. You can only come and go from the side door.
This would not keep me from renting Buxton Ranch again. My family and I had a wonderful time!
The Buxton Ranch had plenty of room and met all the needs for my family of four with our small dog. The kitchen was well-equipped with cooking utensils, and we had plenty of linens and cleaning supplies for every day housekeeping with hand and dish soaps, brooms, extra trash bags, extra paper towel and toilet paper rolls if needed, and access to a washer and dryer. The neighborhood was very calm and quiet, and we were close enough to a beach access for our family's morning and evening walks along the beach. We definitely enjoyed our stay and recommend for a simple family vacation or reprieve!
Thanks again for your stay!!
Such an amazing house that makes you feel like you’ve always lived there. The island has such a nice environment and aura. The owner Dan is such a nice guy. Will definitely be back!
Thanks again for your stay! Cheers - Dan
We had a very peaceful Christmas at the Buxton Ranch. The house was very clean and easily accommodated our family of six. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to cook a large Christmas dinner.
Note to guests that have pets: There are Sand Spurs in the yard and nearly all over the island so just be aware :)
Nice place perfect size for us.
Nice place clean and large.
