You will absolutely forget what day it is when you stay at Island Time Buxton! This four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath cottage gives true meaning to a 'vacation on the beach.' Just one row back from the ocean, someone with a good arm could throw a stone into the sea from either sundeck, and with 2,500 sq. feet of living space, there is plenty of room for the entire family to enjoy the amazing views all day and night.

Located on beautiful Tower Circle Road in Buxton, there's no need to haul gear back and forth from the car to enjoy your day at the beach; all you need to do is walk out your front door and walk across the street to enjoy the surf and sun. Dual outdoor showers and an outdoor restroom provide the beach lover with the ultimate convenience. Ready for lunch? Use the fish cleaning table for filleting your fresh catch and throw it on the charcoal grill to cook them up along with some hot dogs and burgers - a perfect beach picnic!

As you enter the home on the bottom level, you are welcomed by a cozy den and game room. A comfortable couch, large flatscreen smart TV, games, puzzles, and an air hockey table are provided to help occupy the kids when they need a break from the sand and sunshine. Meanwhile, you can find a perfect book from our library for those afternoons lounging on one of the two sundecks. Laundry? No worries! You won't need to bring those dirty towels home, the washer and dryer are there for your convenience.

Moving upstairs to the second level, you will find all four bedrooms. The first bedroom has two sets of bunk beds and a large flatscreen smart TV perfect for gaming. The second bedroom has a queen bed, smart TV, and direct access to the hot tub through the French doors. These two bedrooms share a nice sized full bathroom which is off the hallway. Bedrooms three and four are both main suites with queen beds, full bathrooms, flatscreen smart TVs, and direct access to the first level deck and its accompanying hot tub. From both rooms you can lie in bed and watch the rolling waves of the Atlantic crash on to the shore.

Walk upstairs to the spacious main living area, where you will find the dining area, family room, kitchen and half bath. Lit by natural light and highlighted with amazing views of the ocean from every seat, the open floorplan brings the family together with a large sectional couch centered around a coffee table, a large flatscreen TV, Blu-ray player, stereo, and surround sound. The dining area provides plenty of seating with a pub table for four and a 10-person dining table. The kitchen comes fully equipped with everything you will need to cook for the whole gang and a large island that doubles as a four-person breakfast bar for seating.

The second level deck is accessible from the dining area and is ideal for kicking back and soaking up the rays, reading a book in the shade while enjoying a cool breeze, taking in the sights, such as the famous Cape Hatteras Light House, and for dining alfresco on the screened in deck complete with picnic table. The best of all worlds is on one deck!

Keep it simple, and truly enjoy Island Life at Island Time Buxton. Not only are you steps away from the ocean, but you are also just a short distance from the grocery store, gas station, restaurants and shops. It truly is a centralized location that provides an authentic Hatteras Island feel and something for the whole family. Island Time Buxton is a place to leave the real world behind!
