About this listing

This efficiency is part of a complex that covers an acre in the heart of Buxton. The apt. is an open area living room, bedroom, kitchen with separate bath. It is located minutes from the lighthouse, beach, and Pamlico Sound-less than a mile.

The space

Open area living space in an areas that you will get a chance to interact with local people who always have great stories to tell. Hopefully, you will get a real feel of island life-not chain motel atmosphere. It gets you away from all the hustle and bustle of everyday life. There will be a pull out couch available in the living area and a regular bed sleeping area.

Guest access

Guests are free to roam an acre of wooded land. On the property are located my home next door to the Island Escape Apt. and a rented Apt. above yours. You are welcome to use the outdoor shower attached to my house -it has hot and cold water in an enclosed area. These work great for when you come off the beach after a long and relaxing day.

Interaction with guests

For most of the time this season I will be on the property right next door. I will be glad to make your stay a true "Island Escape". My tenants ,Neal and Joanna, will be glad to help you too. Their pets are Ryder(a golden Lab) and Fred, the cat who you will probably not see.

Other things to note

There will 1 parking space available. Remember there is a rented apt upstairs.

House Rules
Check in is anytime after 3PM

Smoking is permitted outside only. Dogs under 30 lbs. are allowed but they must be on a leash if they are outside. You will need to bring a dog cage if you plan to leave your pet alone in the apt. for any length of time. Hatteras Island is very dog friendly . If you plan to take your dog to the beach -the National Park requires that they be on a leash at all times . Be sure that your dog is on heart worm meds before he comes-we have lots of mosquitoes which carry this disease to dogs. Don't panic it only affects dogs. If you have a dog larger than 30 lbs. and you cannot live without him -just give me a call and we will see what we can work out. I will except most dogs but l cannot except indoor cat pets. We do have some outdoor cats which we inherited and they are strictly outdoors. All of our pets have had shots,etc. There is a charcoal grill for your use but we do not supply charcoal. There are 2 steps to enter the bathroom. There is a chance of sometimes hearing the upstairs tenants walk -they are excellent tenants-Neal,Joanna, and baby,Carson .Sorry no pet cats.

Chalaron's place was the perfect space for my fiancé and I as we explored OBX. She was a fantastic host with great recommendations on sites and experiences on the island.

Chalaron is an amazing host. She contacted me the day before our trip because electricity to the island had been disrupted by a construction accident on a bridge. She was very informative and supportive of whatever decision we made - to come or to cancel. We still came - and she went out of her way to ensure we had what we needed to cope with occasional black outs. Beyond the craziness of a mandatory evacuation, I most certainly would come back and stay here. The studio was spacious and open with all the amenities we could need. (We planned to cook and make our own meals - used the grill; she had wi-fi and ceiling fans were essential; bed was comfy.) The location is awesome, just a block from an small and well-stocked grocer and an easy bike ride to the national park. It's tucked away in a residential area so was quiet. Charlaron knows the island in and out so she was a wealth of information - and so hospitable.

10 out of 10 on all counts. Chalaron's place is very homey and clean. Well equipped and perfectly located for groceries, restaurants, activities, and the beach. As a host, Chalaron goes above and beyond.

This apartment is just perfect. The bathroom is large and has a great shower. The towels and bed linens are top quality-nice thick towels. The bed is very comfortable and has good pillows too! Having a full kitchen, outfitted with all the utensils you could need & with a full size refrigerator/freezer was awesome-no need to buy ice! The couch in the living room is comfortable as well, and with Dish TV and a great wi fi connection, there's nothing else that you need. AND the apartment has lots of electrical outlets-plugging in chargers for cell phones, laptop, etc was not a problem! The location is close to everything-the lighthouse is just down the road, beach access is nearby, grocery store and restaurants are just around the corner. Charlaron pointed us to a great beach and also gave us tips to make our tourist stops easier. I couldn't ask for a better hostess.

Chalaron' s place was amazing! Chalaron was an amazing host! We did not have a 4x4 vehicle to go out on the beach, she took precious time out of her day to show us around the area. She provided amazing recommendations of places to eat and things to do. We LOVED staying there. The apartment was clean, cute, and a great place to relax. We will definitely return! We would highly recommend staying here! Chalaron was very accommodating and a pleasure to have the opportunity to send time with!

It was a cozy quiet spot in its own secluded area and only 1 minute from rt. 12. Perfect location. The upstairs did get noisy but luckily they were out of town for 2 out 3 nights of our stay. The host was very sweet and helpful and gave us our privacy.

I am a retired school teacher that has lived on Hatteras Isiand off and on ever since my parents brought me here as a 13 year child. My parents believed in emerging themselves into the community and I am so glad that they did. The local people are caring, resilient,and loyal. There is never a dull day here-sunny days at the beach, fishing in the Pamlico Sound, star gazing at night, experiencing beautiful sunsets, watching storm clouds build, and savoring mouthfuls of local seafood just to share a few. Sharing my love of Hatteras Island and the people who call this beautiful windswept place home gives me a great feeling. I do have other hobbies also. I have discovered gardening in my twilight years, but I do have to practice this hobby in my other home which in Snow Hill, N.C. which is about 175 miles from Buxton. So many hungry deer are roaming on the island ,it makes the choice of garden plants limited. I also like to travel. I have recently been to England and Ireland. My favorite pastime is cooking. I guess it is because my husband ,Billy, and I owned and operated a restaurant in Buxton Harbor called Billy's Fish House for many years. So even now I have trouble cooking in small amounts. Maybe you will benefit from this problem. Lastly, I just enjoy meeting new people.
