Southside ll, A newly remodeled, pond side studio - A short walk to the beach!
About Wendy Sisler
The property is where I grew up. This is all family land that we have had for generations. The property is just across the street from the ocean with a huge back yard. Only 2 houses are in the neighborhood and it is very quiet.
Why Wendy Sisler chose Hatteras
We are very partial to our neighborhood. It is within steps of ocean, deli, ice cream and shopping. However, very quiet and private.
What makes this Studio unique
The studio is located on the first floor with only 4 steps, very accessible. The yard has been a plus for all of our guests, they love the privacy as well as the pond out back.

Nice place; nice landlord
We enjoyed our stay in Wendy's apartment. Very clean and very quiet neighborhood. Not quite as close to the beach as I had gathered from the vbro ad but not far to walk. Several good restaurants nearby and very close to the ferry to Ocracoke. We would definitely stay there again.
Everything was perfect!
We celebrated our 11 year anniversary exploring Hatteras. This property was perfect for us. The wildlife was amazing. From turtles in the pond to tree frogs on the door and let's not forget the ducks and chickens! We're from Maryland, and live in the country but, we love the beach! This rental gave us the best of both worlds. The owner's are very nice and easy to contact. I would definitely recommend this place if you're looking for something with the basics in the rental and adventure outside the front door.
Great studio apartment with friendly host. Perfect for our needs
Great location and price for our beach weekend. Quiet and everything we needed for our stay.
Thank you for the nice review. I do hope you will return.
Let me start by saying that Wendy is wonderful and accommodating. She was always accessible when we had questions. And the house is a short walk to the beach. Which is convenient. The shower was warm, the stove worked nicely when cooking dinners, and the AC was good and cold.
However, the mosquitos were intense. I couldn't comfortably walk out of the house w/o being swarmed. I'm pretty sensitive to them and get bit often. But even my boyfriend, who's normally not bothered by mosquitos, was annoyed. Walking to the beach wasn't possible. And I had to run to the car.
The bed was also not what I'm used to and seemed rather noisy. I have a foam at home so it could just be it's been a while since I've laid on a spring mattress so I wasn't all that comfortable.
In the end, we enjoyed our time at the beach and it was conveniently located.
Not a good experience for us; would not recommend
When we arrived, we couldn't find anyone at/near our rental. A neighbor or someone local who happened to drive by asked if she could help and directed us to a shop the owner owned. We found her in there, and she told us to go ahead up to the second floor of the first of the two buildings she owns. We brought all our luggage up only to realize it couldn't be the room we requested, as it did not match the picture. Walked back to the store, and she directed us to another unit. My husband opened the door only to find a woman sleeping there! We had to go back and forth to the owner sevearl times, and she didn't seem to know where we belonged. This took almost an hour of walking back and forth and trying different doors. We couldn't understand why she wouldn't just walk us to the correct unit. My husband was mortified to have walked in upon a sleeping woman!
The unit was advertised to have television but the TV did not work. When we reported this to the owner, she directed US to call the cable company! My husband spent about an hour on the phone with the cable company, and they finally advised that we couldn't do anything since the account wasn't in our name. Why were we expected to call and handle this problem? We were shocked that we were expected to do this!
It had been raining, off and on, all week, so in the evenings when it rained, we had nothing to do, as there was no working wifi or television, so we decided to go home a day early. Wendy told my husband, as we were leaving, that she would reimburse us for our last night that we didn't spend there, but we never received a dime.
Quaint, effective suite for a relaxing get-a-way !
The accommodations suited our purpose for our first visit to Hatteras Island, Outer Banks.
The area's amenities were ideal for what we wanted away from the extreme commercial tourists areas.
Beaches were clean, the shopping pleasant, people friendly and a variety of quality (hometown) restaurants.
The only thing the suite lacked was a comfortable recliner or stuffed chair and ottoman in lieu of the strait back chairs.
Wendy was a great host and helpful whenever needed.
