Description from owner

Welcome to the Hidden Gem!!

It's located in secluded wooded acre lot in the beautiful Hatteras Island. Perfect island vacation place to enjoy all aspects of nature - ocean, bay, wildlife, water views and still in midst of the town with all amenities, walking distance from local shopping store, entertainment, eateries, and beach.

A freshly renovated two unit house, new in the OBX vacation rental market!!

Perfect renting opportunity for a large family get-together - two unit house. The Main floor has 3 Bedrooms / 2 Bathrooms. Lower unit has a very spacious Kitchen with in-kitchen breakfast area and a separate dining room adjacent to Living room in an open setup design.

The second floor has a separate unit, connecting through internal stairs and separate entry/exit as well. It is 1 Bedroom/Bathroom unit with full Kitchen and in-kitchen dining area.

Lower Unit:

The Master Bedroom is very spacious with a large walk-in closet and attached master bathroom. It has a queen bed and a 40ïn flat screen Smart TV. It is fully renovated, fresh paint and new hardwood floor. The attached bathroom is also renovated, tiled walls and floor, has a wide & deep soaker tub for a relaxing bath. The sliding mirror door separates bedroom and bathroom, opens space and add privacy at the same time.

The second bedroom has a queen bed, a spacious closet, it is also renovated, fresh paint and new hardwood floor.

The Third bedroom is sure to catch kid's attention, it has 2 set of bunk beds and a roomy closet, fresh paint and new hardwood floor.

The second bathroom is in the hallway, which is also renovated, tiled walls and floor, Multi-Jetted full body shower with sliding glass doors and a shower bench.

Our spacious kitchen is freshly painted and equipped with all appliances for a home like cooking experience: Electric stove, oven, griddle, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, blender, dishwasher and full size refrigerator with icemaker. Adjoining to kitchen is laundry room with full size washer and dryer.

The outside screened in porch, wraps around on the house in front and canal-side with a spacious lower deck with the water view. You can enjoy sun-rise and sun-set from the porch/deck.

Upper unit has a Queen Bed in the Bedroom and A Full Bed and Futon. The unit has its own Flat screen TV. It has a fully furnished Kitchen with full size refrigerator and coffee maker. The Upper Unit also has a full bathroom with soaker bathtub.

While here at Island I am sure most of the time would be spent at the beach, for the days when it's not an option or to relax in evening, we have a large screen flat smart TV in living room with DVD player and HDMI connection. The TV has free Netflix streaming if you want to watch a Netflix movie We also have a large flat screen smart TV in Master bedroom. We also have free wi-fi so you can access internet..

What makes this home so special is that, it�s cradled in the lap of nature and wildlife. It is nestled in Island greenery and has a creek flowing right beside which allows you to enjoy and see a lot of Island Fauna, we have spotted families of deer grazing in the yard and have seen Ospreys, Egrets, Herons and Pelicans fishing in the creek. It�s like having a house in woods only this one is right in midst of Island humdrum.

If you do not need the upstairs unit, you do have the option of just renting the downstairs Unit. The access to upstairs unit is lockable. Please e-mail and enquire for adjusted price.

Complimentary Cot, air beds, beach chairs & cooler. For your peace of mind and security purposes, we have outside perimeter surveillance with video cameras.

The way to house is right off the highway 12, through unpaved path between Jo bell Beauty salon and Hotline store. The speed limit is 5 mph on the unpaved road, pass the commercial yard and house is all the way back next to the canal. Check out the Aerial view picture.

“Great house for a peaceful & fun-filled holiday”

Reviewed 18 May 2016

If you looking for spacious cozy place for your family in OBX, this house is a great option. The house is well equipped all the amenities required for a comfortable stay. We rented the main floor for our family of 3 adults and 2 children and a dog. There was plenty of room for everyone. This place is at a 2 minute walking distance to local eating joints and grocery stores and 5 minutes drive to the nearest beach. We loved the fact that we were right in the heart of the town of Buxton and secluded at the same time with plenty of trees around and also a creek next to this house. We enjoyed exploring Hatteras island, our walks to the lighthouse and the beach, and our ferry trip to Ocracoke island, which is an experience in itself. Overall it was a wonderful stay. We are looking forward to renting it again this summer!

“Great property”

Reviewed 18 May 2016

We stayed with group of 12 and this was perfect. Just perfect. Enough room for everyone. 2 kitchens there, which is very helpful for a large group. Also, there is top unit, which gives privacy. Outside area is great for kids play. Property is walking distance from shops and beach area. Also, grocery store is within 2 minutes drive. We had lots of fun. Owners are very helpful and nice people. I greatly recommend this property.

Owner's reply: Thanks Mr. Nain, Glad you guys had a great time. We now have new screened Porch to make the Vacations even more comfortable. Seema
