“Great Family Beach House!!!”

Reviewed 17 Jun 2013

GREAT beach house!! Great views and plenty of room to move around. We had three families stay together, 21 adults and children stayed. Plenty of room for sleeping, kids slept on air mattresses and couches and loved it. Great pool and hot tub, which was used everyday!!! The beach 200 yds away was just OK, wish it would have been better. We ended driving 5 minutes to the beach access beach with our 4 X 4 which was beautiful. If you want a relaxing, quiet vacation without all of the commercialized surroundings, this is it. Beautiful views, including not only the ocean , but also some deer running around in the yards and down the road. We will definately consider this again for our vacation to OBX in the future.

“Able to be disabled at the beach”

Reviewed 16 Oct 2012

Vacations at the beach with a disabled family member can become a lot of work instead of a vacation. Whispering Sands changed that for us, and our trips to the beach will never be the same. Our son had the time of his life, with a pool that was easy to get in and out of, a hot tub that held all of us, an elevator and ramps that gave him the freedom to be in all areas of a magnifcent home, and also made loading and unloading all our stuff a lot easier than lugging it up flighjts of stairs (something that age makes more dificult every year). Because of the thoroughness of the realty company that handles the property, we were able to find places to eat, attractions to see, and for our son, a 4-wheel drive vehicle to rent, so we could visit beaches only accessable by 4-wheeling. Also, how could you not love that kitchen, it had everything you needed to cook any meal you could imagine. We loved our vacation (a dream come true) and the charm of Hatteras Island. Hopefully if all goes well, we visit again next year and be "able to be disabled at the beach" again. Thanks for a truly great vacation in a truly great house. We hopefully will see you next year.

“Beautiful House - Great Time”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2011

This is a beautiful house and fully equipped with everything we needed - and more. The upper level had a beautiful kitchen with huge dining room that enable our family to have wonderful meals together. The location was secluded, yet close enough to stores and amenities. The ocean was a couple of blocks away - a little further than it appears to be on the internet - but still close enough to walk to. Stores and restaurants were only a couple of blocks away. We enjoyed the beautiful pool and the rental agents were prompt to respond to all of needs. I would definitely consider going back to this beautiful house.

“Moments that take your breath away”

Reviewed 11 Jan 2011

Our week at Whispering Sands was a time that we will always cherish. A warm reception at Hatteras Realty when we checked in got the week off to a great start. When we first drove up to the house, we were stuck by the beauty of the building. And the view from the inside out is even more stunning. Cooking and eating on the third flood each day is a dream! You feel within arm's reach of the beach and the famous Hatteras Light House. Let me say - the pictures do not do this place justice! The house is perfect for a group from 8 to 18, with plenty of bedrooms and three TV rooms. We hooked the Wii up to the downstairs TV and it became like a game room with the pool table right next door. Of the many other comforts, we enjoyed the hot tub the most! Even on chilly nights, we sat out there comfortable much of the evening. We loved our stay at Whispering Sands, and working with the extremely hospitable owners. Consider this for your next OBX excursion!

“You will love Whispering Sands”

Reviewed 10 Oct 2010

WOW! The views from the upstairs livng areas or the decks are incredible.You can see the waves breaking on the beach and the lighthouse. You will not want to leave. This house has everything . It was a short walk to the village and a shorter walk to the ocean. A beautiful house with a great layout. This house has it all. If you stay here you will definitely want to come back again and again.

“Great house and amenities!”

Reviewed 17 May 2010

Probably the best beach property we ever rented, from the large pool to the enormous kitchen with every convenience including 2 dishwashers. And a great deal as well. Each bedroom has a large bed and its own bath and the mattresses are very comfortable. Great for 4 couples or large family. Buxton is remote and not commercial at all. If you are looking for a Myrtle Beach type beach this isn't for you. Great owner communications and a genuine interest in making his property a great rental.

“Great home, great experience”

Reviewed 20 Jul 2009

The house was great, the owners a delight to deal with and the agency was professional. It made for a great vacation. We were there in October 07 and one of the late season huricanes was passing by some 80 miles E/SE from Cape Hatteras. We enjoyed a spectacular show of winds and breaking surf that we could watch from the top deck of the house, feeling safe and very comfortable. Great location, great house, great experience.

5 star rating!!! The house was great, the owners a delight to deal with and the agency was professional. It made for a great vacation. We were there in October 07. Great location, great house, great experience.

5-star - Great house, great amenities, great view, great everything! The description does this home no justice! The bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious, the kitchen very well appointed and a joy to cook in, the furnishings top notch, and the elevator and pool were great attractions! The home has a great ocean view, and it's just a short jaunt to the beach. I highly recommend this home and would book it again if I had the ability to fill all the rooms! The homeowners even called midweek to ask about our stay, and if we had any suggestions for improvements. They even sent a Christmas card to us that year.

5-star! ajh, Iowa. Date of Stay July, 2010. We rented Whispering Sands in 2010 for a family reunion and everyone loved it! In fact we're coming back in 2011 for another reunion. The house lends itself well to being in a large group such as dining, has a pleasant kitchen to prepare the meal, and has lots of places for more private conversations in small groups. It is well equipped for infants and families. We loved sitting on the deck on the upper level to read, watch the crowd go by, talk etc. Couldn't be a more perfect environment for our get-together. Ample parking in the back of the house. We did rent another house for our overflow close by. Highly recommend this rental.
