WOW! The views from the upstairs living areas or the decks are incredible.You can see the waves breaking on the beach and the lighthouse. You will not want to leave. This house has everything . It was a short walk to the village and a shorter walk to the ocean. A beautiful house with a great layout. This house has it all. If you stay here you will definitely want to come back again and again.

Probably the best beach property we ever rented, from the large pool to the enormous kitchen with every convenience including 2 dishwashers. And a great deal as well. Each bedroom has a large bed and its own bath and the mattresses are very comfortable. Great for 4 couples or large family. Buxton is remote and not commercial at all. If you are looking for a Myrtle Beach type beach this isn't for you. Great owner communications and a genuine interest in making his property a great rental.

Our week at Whispering Sands was a time that we will always cherish. A warm reception at Hatteras Realty when we checked in got the week off to a great start. When we first drove up to the house, we were stuck by the beauty of the building. And the view from the inside out is even more stunning. Cooking and eating on the third flood each day is a dream! You feel within arm's reach of the beach and the famous Hatteras Light House. Let me say - the pictures do not do this place justice! The house is perfect for a group from 8 to 18, with plenty of bedrooms and three TV rooms. We hooked the Wii up to the downstairs TV and it became like a game room with the pool table right next door. Of the many other comforts, we enjoyed the hot tub the most! Even on chilly nights, we sat out there comfortable much of the evening. We loved our stay at Whispering Sands, and working with the extremely hospitable owners. Consider this for your next OBX excursion!
