World class surfing, fishing, and kite boarding. The house is 60 feet from the beach. The view is incredible!
Sip your drink and enjoy the majestic view of the ocean from the deck of Anna’s Beach Cottage. Forget something in the house, not a problem. Our home is only steps away from the ocean.
When entering our house, you will be awakened by the colors of shells and the ocean. Our main living area is a place to sit back and soak up the view. We know that eating out is fun but sometimes it’s equally fun to relax and stay in with family and friends after a full day at the beach. Our house is fully equipped with kitchen gear to make cooking a breeze.
The bedrooms are all comfortably furnished making for a great night’s sleep. We even have a portable crib and high chair for the little ones.
So enjoy the beauty of the Outer Banks from one of the best views you can get….from Anna’s Beach Cottage.

We are located on Hatteras Island in the small fishing village of Rodanthe. We are 30 minutes south of Nags Head. Hatteras Island is a fisherman's paradise. The Cape Hatteras National Seashore continually makes the top ten beaches in the United States.
Surfing & Scuba diving...
Rodanthe is the east coast surfing capital. You easily watch the surfers from our deck. Depending on the time of year, you might even be able to watch a surfing competition. Hatteras Island is a barrier island off the coast of North Carolina which makes our island a narrow one. You can see the Pamilco Sound from our deck and take in a sunset. The Pamlico Sound is known for world class windsurfing. There are many surf shops in the area for gear and lessons. Scuba diving is mostly wreck diving. There is a dive shop in Nags Head (30 minutes north of our home).
If you're a history buff, you will certainly enjoy your visit here. Our coast is called the "Graveyard of the Atlantic" because of the numerous shipwrecks over the years. The coast is difficult to navigate, therefore, the first coast guard station is located right down the road from us..Chicamacomico Lifesaving Station. You can also drive 30 minutes south on Route 12 to the village of Buxton and climb the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. The outer banks has several lighthouses to visit. There is a museum on shipwrecks and pirates (Blackbeard) in Hatteras village. There are many artifacts in the outer banks from shipwrecks. The outer banks is also well known for the first flight of the Wright Brothers over the giant sand dunes at Jockey's Ridge. The Wright Brothers Memorial is a landmark for aviation history.
Nature and Bird Watching....
Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge is a ten minute drive from our house. It's refuge for local and seasonal birds. There is a ranger on staff during business hours. They have nature hikes and discussions throughout the season. This area is known for sea turtle rescue. There are often sightings of loggerheads and other turtles.
Oregon Inlet Fishing center is the hub of fishing charters. The Oregon Inlet connects the sound with the Atlantic Ocean. Charters are popular because the gulfstream is only a few miles from the inlet. On some days you might even see the shrimp boats coming in when you cross over the Bonner Bridge. Charters are available all year round. The fishing center is a great place to go around 4:30 to 5:00 p.m. and watch the fishermen bring in their catch for the day.
Of course there's our great beach, but if you want to venture out...there are other things to do. You can take the children to the sound side where it's very shallow with little waves. The incline into the water is very gradual which is fun for the kids. North Carolina Aquarium is 30 minutes away in the town of Manteo. There are also small amusement areas 30 minutes north of us which have miniature golf and go carts.
If you are looking for a Burger King or McDonalds, you will be disappointed. Our restaurants serve local fish and cuisine and are operated by the locals. Fresher fish would be hard to find. There are places to go out for breakfast and dinner very close to our home if you do not want to cook.
Our house is situated on our lot on a 45 degree angle which makes the view from the front window incredible.
We have an extensive DVD collection too.
