“Home away from home, beach heaven.”

House is very close to the beach. We liked that it was a very short walk to the beach. The house has all the kitchen appliances you need and feels very spacious inside. We love to sit on the deck and eat and play cards. We loved having the washer and dryer. The front lawn is roped off , we thought so you don't park there. Please beware we found out that there are cactus growing there. We do believe our dog got stabbed. I feel they should have signs in the lawn warning people about them. I would not want young children stepping on them. The needles on the cactus do stab and make you bleed and feel like you are being stung. This is the only complaint I have about the property. We had a great time and would stay there again.

So glad you had a great time! There are two types of cactus that are a part of sandy soil on Hatteras Island. We try to keep them out of the yard. Look forward to seeing you here again!
Thank you!

“Very comfortable for the price!”

Freaky Tiki Is not a luxury resort,but a very comfortable beach cottage,with a short walk to the beautiful beach,It is fully equipped with everything you need to make your stay pleasant.It has 3 bedrooms plus a sleeper sofa,& 2 full baths.The outside shower is amazing,we used it not only for sand removal,but on occasion for total bathing.Nothing like the smell of the ocean & the wonderful breeze plus total privacy, while washing the remnants of the day away. The cottage is equipped with a washer,dryer,dishwasher.coffee maker and a very adequate refrigerator. Everything was in good working order and well maintained.Br 1 queen 2-db 3-twins. The upper deck and stairs have recently been replaced,I frlt maybe to add the landing and to extend the width, which was a plus. If you love the beach and or not looking for a spa resort, but comfort at an affordable rate, I highly recommend this cottage!

“ok but needs some work for sure”

Although I feel somewhat lucky to get a place where we want to go (Avon), this place needs some work. It is functional but basic stuff - plumbing, electrical, stairs were cheaply constructed and the owners are trying to sell and don't seem interested in keeping the place up. The key pick-up was almost 20 miles away in Hatteras Village - not good. The cost was a bit cheaper than other places nearby so that was good. DOn't get this wrong, we had a great time and it is very close to a great beach and we love Avon and Buxton and a fairly short drive to ferry to Ocracoke - we love the outer banks and hope to go back - just not to this place.

I am glad you had a great time. I am sorry you were not happy with the house. It is a basic beach cottage reasonable price and short walk to the beach. Maybe we can fine a house more suitable to your taste and needs. The office is the same distance as to get on the ferry to go to Ocracoke, which both are in Hatteras Village. Hope to see you next year!
