Toes in the Water is a great place to stay in Hatteras. It has all the basics that you expect, is cozy, and is close enough to everything to walk to.

The place was just as advertised, small but clean, well equipped. The location was beautiful, remote and quiet. The beach was a short walk away and the sunsets from the balcony were beautiful. Leslies services was attentive, curteous and responsive. I had a great trip and would certainly stay there again as well as use leslies rentals in the future.
