The space
What we expect from our guests during the Covid-19 Pandemic :

We are in trying times now and want to offer the utmost safety to our guests.
It is our goal to provide you with a safe stay. Our current home policy of rental
will require you to do the following until the pandemic is over.

1. First relax! Have a good time getting away!

2. We encourage you to bring your own food, drinks, toiletries, toilet paper,
kitchen towels, tissues, and paper towels. We have a shortage of these items
on the island. But they are in stock at some stores. So please bring your own.
It's a good idea to bring as much as you can from your hometown because
our grocery stores here may have less in stock than those off the island. Our stores
are smaller and support a high demand from locals and tourists.

3. Bring proper protective face masks, and practice social distancing as long
as the state and local counties require it. Please respect others space while out in public.

4. Please enjoy yourselves! Come relax, unwind, and escape the chaos
we have all been subjected to this year! We wish you peace of mind and the calm vacation you need. Most of all wellness and sanctuary. - Justin Davis and Family.

Enjoy a unique stay in our remodeled 1937 Craftsman style cottage. Unlike any other home in the area. Romantic, original, charming, and quiet. Wake up to the quiet of birds chirping in the morning.

We are an Airbnb Superhost. That means we are doing great!

We are located a minute away from the best spots to fish, beach drive, surf, paddleboard, walk, hike, and bike. Close to the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse and national park beaches and nature trails. New sidewalk from our house to the Lighthouse beaches, local grocery store, and restaurants. Everything is within a short walk or bike ride.

Our 1937 "craftsman style" cottage is lovingly restored with full attention to the era details. Our cottage has been in our family for five generations.

Like no other home on the island.

Hatteras island native. Finished high school in Raleigh, and afterwards got my bachelors in graphic design at the Savannah College of Art & Design.

I spent years traveling, exploring surf spots in Hawaii, South America, Europe, and the Caribbean. I now work full time as a graphic designer. Many people get an immediate cozy family feel to our home. The home is well maintained. We really put the extra effort into restoring it to it's best potential. If you are looking to stay somewhere private, quiet, and cozy... This is the spot. "The heart of Hatteras Island"...we say because of the long family history and our central location. You will have freedom and relaxation at our original 1937 craftsman home. Our place is a true historic island gem.

Bring your suncreen and have fun!
