Top 10 Vacation Rentals In Hatteras, North Carolina, USA - Updated 2023

vacation rentals in hatteras nc

With pristine beaches and a friendly fishing community, Hatteras has carved a niche for itself as North Carolina’s most sought-after getaway destination. It certainly deserves the accolades it’s won, owing most of its fame to its ocean-side location that makes it a ripe playground for watersports enthusiasts. You can indulge in kiteboarding, kayaking, or windsurfing when in Hatteras. Still, if you want to take a trip to picturesque Ocracoke Island, just hop on a ferry that operates on Hatteras Inlet. And, if you simply want a hassle-free vacation, this quaint village will offer this as well. Start planning your getaway by checking out our list of vacation rentals in Hatteras, NC, below.

1. Condominium in Hatteras Village (from USD 69)

Pack your bags and head down to this lovely condo, nestled in the heart of Hatteras Village, a short stroll to the beach. There’s just one bedroom here, enough space to accommodate three guests. Because of this, the rental would be best suited for a small family. This quaint little condo is warm and cozy inside, with a cute interior that’s well furnished. Creature comforts, like a modern open kitchen, a living area and a fully-stocked bathroom, are available. However, the chief selling point to this rental is the deck outside, a space where you can wind down as you enjoy the picturesque view of the sea.

The cabana definitely needs some updates
The cabana had a broken step which I slipped and turned my ankle and ended up leaving a day early
but we never experienced any issues
Many great eateries nearby to sample same day caught seafood
There was not a small cookie sheet to reheat food which would of been nice Need to also include in instructions that the island looses power from time to time
It was quiet and peaceful Love the small shops and restaurants
