  • Beautiful Buxton


    After my husband and I finally found this hidden gem (we had to stop and ask for directions - gps got us close but it was difficult to find). This place was amazing. The beautiful small white pebble driveway was just the beginning! The place was beyond clean. Not one thing did we find unsatisfactory as far as cleanliness - and that is a huge deal for us. Next, I have to brag about the BED. Amazing. More comfortable and plush than our own bed at home. We just fell in love with the comfort of it. So much so that I peeked to see what brand the sheets, pillows, and even comforter was. I want to have my bed just as comfy! So, next, the little pier out back - my husband and I were there to FISH. We mostly fished on Avon pier which was about 15 min away, but one evening we walked out to the little pier with our rods and tossed them a few times. Within about 15 min my husband caught a nice puppy drum. Everything about this trip was amazing. We loved it. Loved the bathroom. Loved the sink in the bathroom. Loved the washer/dryer. Loved EVERYTHING. If there was one thing we would suggest - my husband said possibly consider different living room seating. The rattan type furniture was not real comfy in our opinion. But definitely not a complaint. Thank u for allowing us to stay. We can't wait to return!

    We love the Outer Banks in the fall and our stay in this Carriage House apartment was beautiful. It may seem petty but our only complaint was the TV in the bedroom. Instructions on use of 2 remotes would be helpful.

  • Just as advertised


    Great property. We were very comfortable in the seaside cottage, but the real selling point is the owners dock/pier - incredibly beautiful views & sunset. Thank you to our hosts for a great stay!

  • Perfect for a couple's getaway


    Clean, modern, private and ideally located beach home. Just a hop and a skip away from the Hatteras Lighthouse and shoreline, the ferry to Ocracoke, and the activities in Avon, Rodanthe, Pea Island and more. Access to the private dock on the sound was an especially nice touch. There's even a highly reputable restaurant which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner literally a frisbee throw away on the southwest side. Highly recommended.

  • Sweetness on the Sound!


    This was a wonderful place to stay for two people in a great location on the Pamlico Sound on Hattaras Island in Buxton near Frisco and just a short drive to the Ocracoke Ferry. Close drive to the Avon pier and near lots of restaurants and beaches. This was a wonderful getaway in the Outerbanks and we give it 5 STARS hands down. It was cozy, comfortable, and very clean and matched its exact pictures and profile. We were very happy and would be pleased to return again someday.
