Overview

About the property

Cabana Studio, 1 Bedroom 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2 Adults 1 or 2 small children)

Spend some time in our little slice of paradise, 'Quality Time' and experience the wonders of Cape Hatteras at your doorstep. Relax on our roof top deck under the brightest stars you will ever see or take a sunrise walk and watch the dolphins swim in the surf.

Quality Time is a free standing Studio on stilts with parking underneath providing you a private hide-a-way on the beach. Our queen size Sleep Number Bed will ensure you get a good nights sleep and if you have a small child or a buddy along, the sofa bed is comfy too. We provide premium bedding for your comfort. Sheets, pillows, comforters.

Dan and I love to cook so the kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals or entertain. The local restaurants are wonderful too with fresh local seafood. There are charcoal grills and picnic tables outside for the grill masters among you.

We provide 2 beach Chairs, 2 Umbrellas and 2 Boogie Boards for your enjoyment. There are rental shops nearby if you would like to rent bikes or kayaks etc.

QT is small so we have done everything to utilize the space as efficiently and artistically as possible. It's very cheerful, clean and well, it's just beachy. We've had lots of honeymooners and many repeat visitors over the years to rave reviews. We think you will be very happy at Quality Time.

As with all Mid Atlantic vacation spots we are subject to hurricanes between July and Nov. Please consider travel insurance. VRBO offers a plan but there are other insurance options. Check via GOOGLE. It's not expensive and safeguards your vacation monies.

About Susan and Dan Beard

I have family in Hatteras and have been going to Hatteras since I was a small child. My husband Dan was raised on a finger lake in NY so we both have a love of the water.

We rented a Cabana in the summer of 2006 and were hooked. We had 4 units filled with family and friends and enjoyed the privacy of the individual units over the big beach houses we had rented before. We bought #32 on my birthday later that same year.

We feel that time with family and friends is so important and when you combine that with sunny skies and endless beaches the name Quality Time just fits.

Dan and I love fishing and Hatteras offers a of variety of options. Surf casting from the beach has provided many lunches of Trout, Pompano, Puppy Drum, Flounder etc. There are head boats and charters a plenty. Our favorite is the Stormy Petrel. It is huge and can take the whole family out deep sea fishing.

Susan and Dan Beard purchased this studio in 2006

Why Susan and Dan Beard chose Hatteras

Dan proposed to me on one knee at the top of Hatteras Lighthouse in 1997 before it was moved. This area holds so many special memories for us and we hope your time here will enrich your lives as much as it has ours.

What makes this studio unique

Driving on the beach is too much fun!! It's a must do if you have a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Beach combing, horseback riding on the beach, kite surfing, kayaking, did i mention driving on the beach?? Fishing, driving on the beach and camp fires require permits so please follow the local laws governing these activities.

The Beard's place was absolutely perfect for our weekend getaway, very clean and well kept!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't recommend this place more. Just a stones throw away from the beach. Beautiful views. Loved both of the decks and the little patio set. We ate breakfast and lunch everyday outside. Can't wait to come back and stay here again!

Fabulous rental!

  • 5 of 5

Hubby & I stayed at Quality Time May 2018. This studio is lovely, well-appointed, and super clean. The owners have definitely made the most of the space and there was nothing we needed that wasn't provided. The third floor deck was amazing for relaxing in the sun. We will definitely return to Quality Time!

Great Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Décor and cleanliness were great. Our only complaint is the bed sheets do not fit the extra thick pillow top mattress well and came loose every night. We love the location, the beach and the great restaurants.

Owner's Response: I spoke with the cleaning company and they will make sure the sheets are made for the thicker mattress. Thanks for mentioning this so we can correct it. Thank you for the review and we hope to have you back soon. Susan and Dan

Fun little cabana with awesome decks!

  • 4 of 5

Thank you Susan and Dan for sharing your cute cabana with us! It was the perfect location for our first trip to the Outer Banks! Susan, your decor that you’ve chosen for the cabana was one of my favorite things. So beachy and fun! This was the perfect location for us. We enjoyed the laid back vibe of Hatteras as opposed to the commercial feel of Nags Head. Another plus to Quality Time is the short commute to the ferry! We highly recommend a visit to Ocracoke and then we ferried onto the mainland again. We feel like the size of the cabana is perfect for two. Even a family of three would be a tight fit, and we wouldn’t recommend it to a family of four. But, again having said that, it is the perfect little retreat for a couple! We loved it!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. So glad you liked the decor. Decorating the Cabana was so fun. It was painted powder blue with tan as the accent color for furnishings when we purchased it. Nothing about it said vacation to me. My inspiration came from the bed quilt, the furnishings and colors followed. When I told my husband I was using 3 paint colors in the small space he was skeptical but it turned out great. It definitely says beach vacation when you open the door. Susan and Dan
