Relax ~ Refresh ~ Refocus
Hatteras Island has always been an easy escape for some solitude and social distancing. Our beaches are vast, ocean is blue and finding your spot away from the crowd is easy. One can literally spend the entire day @Captain's Hideout out sunning on the decks, in the yard, on the beach, watersports, grill on the decks and not really see anyone else around.
Hatteras Island continues to be a favorite destination for a getaway. Pristine uncrowded beaches, watersports, boating, fishing, shell collecting, historic places, great restaurants with outdoor dining. Yet with all of this Hatteras is still a place where you truly can get away from it all if solitude is your destination.
Weather and sunsets have been amazing.
The fishing @ Avon pier has been going off. Wind and swell have been good.
Nice calm evenings for beach fires and stargazing.
Take a breather away from it all.
The hummingbird feeders on the deck have been busy with morning coffee.

    My fiancé and I met my cousin here. We traveled from Ohio. She traveled from the south. We met for her 48th Bday. We were amazed at the beautiful setting and appearance of the home as we approached it upon our arrival. This home was SO welcoming and beautiful. The decor is exactly what you would expect for its location. The property owner could not have been more accommodating. We had everything we could ever ask for or think of to enjoy our stay. The sound waterfront was perfect! The paddle boards and bikes were so very much appreciated. Simply everything you would think of was available. The perfect vacation! I would stay here every trip! Perfect rental.

    This property is in a great location, in the heart of Avon. The access to the beach club is great because you have access to a nice pool. And the little beach on the sound is pretty private and a nice option when you don’t feel like lugging gear to the ocean.

    Absolutely amazing!

    We loved this house on the sound so much! The most wonderful part about it is the access to the pool next to the beach, which means Free and easy parking to go to both pool and beach! Master bedroom was AMAZING!

    By far this is the most equipped and cared for rental home I have seen. So many little details made this house feel like a home while we stayed. It was perfect for our single family, as we parents slept in the upstairs bedroom suite and the kids shared the large downstairs bedroom. Know that there is no door to the upstairs bedroom, but was not a big deal for us. The multilevel decks make it perfect to enjoy the gorgeous views of the sound, and all have gates so it’s safe for kids and pets. We made use of all amenities especially the bikes and the paddle boards. Unfortunately the Koru Klub had not yet reopened from the pandemic but we were able to get on the beach there anyway. The owner of the home is extremely attentive and responsive, even leaving fresh flowers for our arrival! Would definitely stay again.

    What a wonderful getaway during crazy times. This property was spotlessly clean, beautiful, comfortable, and great location. All the amenities of the sound, including fire pit, right at the home. Gorgeous sunset views from master bedroom and decks, Kitchen was fully equipped with anything you could possibly need. Owner was responsive within minutes with any questions. We can't wait to return!

    Misleading and disappointing

    2/5 Stayed Sep 13, 2020
    Submitted Sep 28, 2020

    One of the main reasons we selected this property was because of the touting of the private beach. While the house does indeed sit just several steps away from the Soundfront, the setting is far from appealing and desirable...with very little sand/area to set out a beach towel and no real easy access to just walk into the water. The house shows signs of wear and tear with spindles missing on the deck rails and unfinished drywall and paint peeling in the master bath. In addition, it is located in a neighborhood that consists of other homes that are not well-kept and some that are or seem to be unoccupied. The stretch of road leading to the house is gravel and must be driven extra-slowly because it is so uneven and bumpy. Overall, this was not at all what we expected and we even left the home a day early; shortening our stay.

    Perfect house on the beach!

    We had a wonderful and relaxing week at Captains Hideout. Our first opportunity to rent this very non typical Hatteras Island vacation rental. We found the home to be very clean and well stocked, great beds, sheets and towels and in a very quiet residential neighborhood. The ability to use the Kora Beach facilities was also a plus as we spent time at the pool the day we arrived and also on the day we were leaving. We would enjoy renting this home again.

    I would prefer giving this property a 4 & 1/2 star rating, but it wasn’t an option. We were a bit disappointed that there were repairs going on that hindered the overall look in the master bedroom/bathroom and didn’t have a working dishwasher. Other than that, the view was amazing and the property is very well situated with an amazing view of the sunset.

The house was beautifully appointed with everything you need, and it was spotless. Some of Avon's best restaurants just a bike ride away. Couldn't have been a better experience. I will rent this again for sure on my next trip to OBX.

    Hidden Gem

    My family has vacationed on Hatteras Island for many years and rented many different homes usually large homes to accommodate large family gatherings. This trip was just 4 of us so we tried something different, the sound front! Captain's Hideout is a Hidden Gem! Located in the quaint village of Avon close to everything we needed but yet so quiet and out of the way. Truly a relaxing visit. The home was as advertised and the owner was quick to respond to a few questions we had. We rode bikes up to the fishing pier in the evenings to check out the ocean and fishing then enjoyed a delicious dinner at Pangea Tavern. The decks offered great views of the fall sunsets. Loved watching the kitesurfers flying by on the sound. We definitely recommend Captain's Hideout!

    Our family loved our week vacation at Captain's Hideout. The house is in tip top condition, comfortable furniture, plenty of room to relax inside and out. I personally enjoyed cooking while looking at the beautiful views and drinking my coffee on the decks in the morning. All of used the bikes to get around the village and to check the fishing pier. The paddle boards were also a great amenity. Thank you for letting us to stay at your home, we will be back soon!
