Everything you need is here: games, books, movies, toys for the kids, boogie boards, beach chairs, charcoal grill, high chair and port a crib. Enjoy family dinners around the deck table which seats eight comfortably, then soak in the hot tub under the stars. This house includes bed linens and hot tub cleaning in the price. Other homes nearby charge extra for this, but we do not. A starter supply of amenities are supplied at no charge, including a roll of paper towels, kitchen sponge, small bottle of Palmolive detergent, toilet paper and pre-lined trash cans. Meticulous attention has been given to every detail, and because of that you'll want to stay the entire summer! This well-maintained home is pet and smoke free. The house is 5 lots back from the ocean front. Walk down the lane to the private beach path. Cross the scenic dunes, and you'll arrive in paradise. Wide, expansive white sand, blue sparkling water. This house is perfect for one family, a family plus the grandparents, or two small families vacationing together. The expansive family room makes the home comfortable, even with 8 guests. The huge deck is perfect for the evening breezes, drinks with friends, or a challenging game of cornhole. Enjoy the sunrises in the morning on the brand new custom table on the deck! Bedroom 1 downstairs has a queen and TV with full bathroom just outside the bedroom door. On level two; bedroom 2 has a queen, TV and is close to hall bath with tub shower and beautiful skylight. Bedroom three is also upstairs and has two bunk beds: twin over twin, and twin over full. The spacious kitchen is fully stocked. There is also a large pantry just off the kitchen, which has a brand new washer and dryer. There is so much to do nearby. Explore the island on the bike trails and enjoy the ice cream parlor just down the road. Spend your day fishing at the nearby pier, or in the surf, rent a charter boat for red drum in the sound, or go deep sea fishing. If you're adventurous, you've come to the right place! You can take surf lessons or kiteboarding lessons. Or go jet skiing, kayaking, or paddle boarding in the sound just across the street. Climb the Hatteras Lighthouse, the tallest in North America, just 30 minutes south. Take the free ferry to Ocracoke Island to see the wild horses and explore the quaint village. Or take the kids to the aquarium in Manteo. If you have little ones, you could take them to the day beach, which is a short bike ride, which has shallow water they can splash in without the heavy surf. The possibilities are truly limitless. Please note, we do ask that guests agree to our Rental Agreement prior to their arrival. The $190 cleaning fee covers: Cleaning the home prior to the next guest's arrival, drain / sanitize / refill the hot tub, and providing clean sheets on all beds in the residence. These items are only charged at cost to all guests.More

About the neighbourhood
The home is located in a quiet neighborhood on lovely Hatteras Island. Enjoy the comfortable Tri-Village area, with it's quaint shops and quiet atmosphere. Life here is much slower paced so be prepared to unwind. The home has many of the amenities of modern living yet the pace of life on Hatteras Island is friendly but notably slower. The proximity to the ocean is wonderful. Once you arrive at the private beach path, the walk across the dunes is amazing - the wildlife peeping out of the dunes is enjoyable for both kids and adults alike (many times we have seen deer munching on the greenery on the dunes). When arriving at the beach, you are met with an expanse of beach good for either beach volleyball, or simply digging a large sandcastle. The ocean temperatures are notably warmer than Nags Head.
