Good location, adequate house, but "tired' and needs some work
First of all, this was a fishing trip ... so, the place met our basic needs and is in a great location in the heart of Buxton and close to the beach.
The whole Cottages at the Cape is in serious need of a refresh. The street lights don't work because they've rusted and fallen off. The grounds are in rough shape, sections of fence are missing, etc. If I brought a family here for a beach vacation, I'd be concerned.
The house also needed a refresh. It wasn't very clean and there was visible water damage on several walls. The upstairs air conditioner couldn't keep up even when it was only 78 outside. The roof had recently been worked on and there were roofing nails all over the driveway.

We had a wonderful time here! The house was clean, and you could see the lighthouse. It was within walking distance to both the lighthouse and beach, which is exactly what we wanted. The mattresses weren’t
the most comfortable, but we loved the house itself. Thank you!
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Its great to know that you and your family enjoyed your stay at Sailfish. Hatteras Realty hopes to have you back for our 2019 season.
Good kitchen and socializing area
First, my inquiry went to a real estate rental agency and not to a private owner as I had assumed. Actual rental house changed from SailFish to Starfish (2 doors apart) which I found out when I picked up the key from the agency. Might have been related to storm damage but no explanation was given. Everything was through them. And it was all ok. Kitchen was very well equipped and it had tons of dishes for a large group. The layout was good for those who wanted to watch tv separated from sitting area for those who didn’t care for it. Beds were a little uncomfortable. 2 very nice decks. Good location for walking. Quiet area.

This was a great spot for my family. As advertised. Just the essentials. Roomy and the screened in porch was a bonus. Great view south to the lighthouse.
Thank you for taking the time to leave review. We really appreciate your comments on Sailfish and it is a pleasure for us to know that we were able to reach your expectations. We hope to have you back for our 2019 season.
