Amazing house and stay, even in the off-season!

We selected this house because of the numerous great reviews. Everything you read here is true. It looks like the weeks sell out quickly so next year we will jump on the reservations as soon as they become available. We enjoyed the peaceful walks on the beach. There was NO ONE on the beach and a deeded access to it via 1 minute walk. I think some beach front houses have longer walks to the beach than this home. We could see and hear the ocean which is very therapeutic. Plus the price is less than half the price of the beach front houses. Though some restaurants are closed in the off-season which is when we stayed, some of the best are still open. We enjoyed getting away from the 20 degree weather in the NorthEast and enjoying the 25-35 degree difference here in the Hatteras. Though it wasn’t warm the weekend we stayed at Ivey Coast, it was a lot warmer than New Jersey. We were looking for a relaxing vacation and even with five kids it was still relaxing. Kids had fun using the pool table and XBOX 360 but several games were too scratched to play, I would bring your own with you if you have some. The pool table was very high quality, all shots went straight. Pool sticks were all level as well. The land is flat all around, next time I’ll bring my kids bikes so they can practice riding. Around our house it’s too hilly. We really enjoyed the hot tub. The pool wasn’t open so the hot tub was a great bonus. If you stay in the winter months, pay a little extra for the hot tub, it’ll be worth it. The house was extremely clean and the neighborhood was nice. Bedding was top notch with comfortable sheets and blankets. We had eight of us and there were 3 bedrooms that were not used. Family room and kitchen were very bright, day or night. We enjoyed the Sauna, really who else has a sauna? No one, what an extra, it smelled, looked and felt very new. It was nice after getting out of the hot tub to relax in the Sauna. Kids tried to get in the Sauna, please don’t let any kids under 13 in the Sauna, they will end up getting burnt on the heater. The kitchen was stocked with all the necessities but an ice cream scooper!  There were at least 16 bowls and plates. The dishwasher was also very big but takes a very long time, plan accordingly. The washer and dryer were super big and looked brand new. You could easily do twice the load of a normal washer and dryer. I wish I could afford to take 2 week vacations to stay here more. Thank you!

Thanks for the great review Mark. We love going down to the house in the off season also. We usually have the hot tub open until late in the year and it's included in the base price, unless we have to turn it on after we've closed it down mid-winter. The sauna is a big hit with our family also. We did upgrade the heater and electronics recently with a Nordic grade unit, so it definitely does the job. We'll take a look at the X-Box disks when we're down there in a few weeks. We can sometimes repair them with the disk cleaner we have at the house, but sometimes we just have to replace them when they get too damaged. We'll also look into finding/replacing the ice cream scoop. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope you'll join us again! Take care.

Robert and Karen were the best from the beginning. From the booking process up to check-in and even during the stay anything I needed they could help

We had a great time in Hatteras at this home with 3 generations of our family. There were plenty of things to do in the home with the pool table sauna and games. Bedrooms were laid out nicely with nice access to bathrooms. We also enjoyed the beach and the proximity to restaurants and stores in Hatteras. The house was well equipped with attention to detail and the owners were very accommodating. They even helped us to get a fight ordered that some of our group wanted to watch. Next time we are in Hatteras we hope to stay at Ivey Coast again! Thanks Karen and Robert!

Hello! Thanks for the kind words! We're thrilled that your family vacation went so well. Please come back and visit us again soon!

Amazing Hatteras Vacation

Robert and Karen were the best from the beginning. From the booking process up to check-in and even during the stay anything I needed they could help me out. The property maintenance company they use were also a great help! The house is beautiful and my traveling group enjoyed everything they had to offer us, we were a large group and the size of the house was perfect and felt like no one was on top of each other! The house is within a two minute walk to the beach which made our evening/nightly bonfires a blast they even provided us with our permit incase we needed one. Located in Hatteras Village are a few small town stores which made forgetting anything a quick drive away. We really enjoyed the bikes! I would definitely stay here again!

Hello. We're really happy that you enjoyed your time away at the house during Christmas! It's especially peaceful during the off season. Please do come back and visit with us again!

I loved your place. It was wonderful.

Had a great time eating at various places through the week. My family and I enjoyed the places of history, the beaches and the walks. My daughter was able to do her runs for her next marathon with out having any problems with safety issues. We enjoyed the facilities at our house. Beyond my expectations. However my son-in-law would have wanted a dumb waiter to carry up the groceries.

Hello Phyllis. It is always great to hear that we've exceeded expectations! We've checked into the price of a dumb waiter a couple of times (we don't like carrying up groceries either) so perhaps we'll get one eventually. Please do come back to Hatteras Village again. Take care.

Family Beach Vacation

We have a family of 13, three sons, three daughter-in-laws, five grand children! Ivey Coast Beach House has all the needs to take care of this number of people with the right number of bedrooms fit for the children and great bedrooms for the adults. Kitchen facilities were very adequate. All beds were very comfortable. The swimming pool & hot tub were used every day and were a great asset to the entire week. I would recommend this Beach House to everyone that would like to have a great visit at the Village of Hatteras.

Thanks for the comments Arnie! We'll keep the house ready for you when you come back! 🙂 Take care.

What a fantastic week!

Hey Robert and Karen, We had such an amazing time at your home during our family vacation week. Our kids, their wives/husbands, and their kids all loved everything about the entire week. Since getting back home, our little grand-daughter (2 yrs. old) has been saying, "Go back to beach house and play in water!" Can't thank you enough for having such a beautiful place for us to stay. When we were deciding to book, I looked at your reviews (I am the family tour guide and planner) and those, plus your own description of your house sold me on your property, and we did not have even one doubt that is where we needed to go. Everything exceeded our expectations, and was sparkling clean when we arrived. And what a fully equipped rental kitchen!!! We did treat your house like it was our own, and left things nice for your cleaning crew to come in and get things ready for the next guests. Our personal favorites about your home are too many to list, but the pool was used several times every day, as well as the cabanas. Since we were a large family group, it was great to have three private floors. Since the pool table was on the ground floor, we assigned the parents and little kids to the middle floor, which worked out great, since it was quiet and had everything they needed. Our younger sons and wives, who do not have kids yet, spent the week on the "Party Floor" since they were staying up later. The third floor was amazing and was where everybody spent a lot of time, since the main kitchen was up there, as well as the family room and big dining table. (Plus private bedroom and bathroom space for us - Grammy and Pop Pop). And we absolutely loved the screened in porch with the little picnic table for the kids. It was such a safe place for them to eat and play, and yet still be outside. We did take some heavy mailing tape and secured the screened in porch door, because our toddler grand-daughter is an escape artist. Also, got so much use out of the island work station in the kitchen. Since we were making some home made meals, everybody ended up hanging out around there. We have booked a few vacations through VRBO, and they have never disappointed us. We will be back, once we can figure out everybody's schedules again, they are spread out these days, and all have different jobs. Again, thank you for a wonderful family vacation at your home.

Hi Kathy. It's great to hear your vacation went so well! We certainly look forward to hosting you and your family again in the future. Take care.

Beautiful home, fabulous location

This home is large, with nicely appointed bedrooms and bathrooms. The kitchen is open, large and very well stocked. The home offers the right space for privacy and group activities. The furniture, contents and decor is clean, in excellent repair and up to date. The pool and hot tub add a new dimension to fun after the sun goes down over the Atlantic Ocean. There are miles of beach located within a 2 minute walk- my favorite place to work out! I would return to THIS property in a heartbeat. Also, we loved the baked goods from the Orange Blossom Bakery. Don't miss out on Apple Uglies!

Thanks so much for coming to Hatteras Village! We hope you'll be able to come visit again soon. Take care.

Perfect Hatteras Vacation Home

This was out second year at Ivey Coast and it was just as great as last year. We love the location and all of the amenities that this home offers. The house has everything you need for entertainment. The kitchen is fully stocked with all you need to provide meals for large groups. The pool area and hot tub were big hits for our group. We also love the screened porch and decks to really enjoy the Hatteras experience. Thank you Robert and Karen for sharing your lovely home!

We love having repeat visitors! Thanks for staying with us Debbie. Hatteras Village is such a special place and your comments make us want to head down there right now. Take care.

Beautiful Vacation Home

We had an awesome family vacation. This home is equipped with everything you need! A short walk to the beach was nice. We did spend most of our time in the pool and loved the fact there is a bathroom in the pool area. We liked the large kitchen so that we weren't bumping into each other. It is obvious this owner put time and thought into this home and its amenities. Gorgeous house!

Hi Cindy. We're thrilled that you had such a good time! Family vacations are so important and we really want to give you the best we can. We truly hope that you'll come back and stay again!
