"We spent the last week of June 2016 at Mike's condo in Hatteras. This was the first time visiting OBX so had no preconceived idea of what to expect. Once we drove across to the island, I was surprised at how long it took to actually get to the Condo but was very pleased when we finally arrived. Hatteras is a very quiet town with plenty of restaurants to enjoy, no need to drive to other towns on OBX and there are plenty of places to shop, rent beach items, and charter a fishing trip all within 5 to 10 minutes drive of the condo. Best of all the ferry, which is free, is just down the road, a must if visiting OBX, drive right onto the ferry and spend half or all day at Ocracoke. Ocracoke also has some excellent restaurants, shops, and plenty of activities to keep your group occupied. The one thing lacking in Hatteras is a decent "stocked" grocery store. We had to drive north about 20 minutes to Conner's Supermarket which has anything you need including a great selection of organic and gluten free items. The condo itself is right on the beach on the top floor with a fantastic view. I enjoyed my early mornings on the deck drinking coffee with the breeze from the ocean watching the sunrise. You can easily see the pool from the deck, I thought we'd use it more, really one of the reasons we selected this condo, but found ourselves on the beach more than the pool. The condo is furnished nicely and provides a nice starter pack with toilet paper, paper towels, and dishwashing liquid. Beds are comfortable and bathrooms roomy. We had no issue with noise at all. This condo is "packed" with just about any kitchen item you can think off, in fact, in my opinion too packed, but better to have too much than too little. My only complaint is there was no available space to store anything we bought from the store or brought from home. There are 2 grills available that are charcoal and we never had any issue waiting when we used them. Communication with Mike was easy and he was quick to respond to questions we had."
