Hatteras Vacation Rentals

Hatteras Island vacation rental homes for rent or sale are plentiful. The most popular form of accommodation is the Hatteras vacation rental in which vacationers rent a fully equipped house by the week.

Thousands of Hatteras vacation rental homes can be found in the Cape Hatteras area, ranging from two bedrooms on Pamlico Sound to 10 or more bedrooms on the oceanfront, some luxurious, some simple. Rental home prices vary according to their amenities and proximity to the water, as is the case with all Outer Banks vacation rental homes. The rental process is made easy by many professional Hatteras Island vacation rental companies that take care of everything from deposits and contracts to cleaning and maintenance. Hatteras vacation rental homes are generally only available by the week, though you may be able to get a partial week if you can don’t mind waiting until the last minute to reserve. For late summer and fall rentals, Hatteras Island’s vacation rental companies will typically offer you the option of hurricane insurance for renters. It doesn’t cost much, and if you purchase it you won’t lose a deposit or be out any money if a hurricane threatens during your rental week.

Hatteras’s vacation rental homes are available year round, though some homes close in the winter. The summer season is when rates are at their highest because that is when there is most demand for accommodations. Be sure to make reservations well in advance. Fall is also a busy season on Hatteras Island because of the excellent fishing. Winter and early spring rates can be very affordable, and oftentimes the weather is nice in those times.

Each of the Outer Banks vacation rental companies listed below offers homes and/or condominiums for rent. Many of the companies also handle property sales. Visit our Cape Hatteras Real Estate page for more information about sales.
