Your "home away from home" awaits you at The Cavalier By The Sea. Friendly service is our hallmark. We believe at the end of your stay you will be satisfied and refreshed and not quite ready to leave.... and you will find yourself returning year after year as do hundreds of our previous and now regular guests. Cavalier By The Sea offers a family atmosphere. For your enjoyment we have a large swimming pool for adults, a small one for the kiddies and a large play ground equipped with swings, slides, a giant ship for the kids, shuffleboard, volleyball and picnic tables. We have comfortable rooms with queen and double beds, cable TV, microwaves and refrigerators. We also have efficiencies and two & three-bedroom cottages including living room, kitchen, and bath completely furnished for light housekeeping. You will be right on the ocean and have only a few feet to walk to enjoy it to your heart's content whether it be swimming, wading, sun bathing or surfcasting. Or if you prefer not to walk at all, enjoy watching the ocean from your front porch in our very popular ocean front rooms which, unlike most "ocean front" rooms, sit right on the beach with no dunes to block your view. We are located on the "Ocean Side" of Virginia Dare Trail (Hwy. 12) at the 8.5 mile post, diagonally across from Wright Memorial Monument and opposite the Port O'Call Restaurant. Located in the center of the Outer Banks beaches, we provide a convenient place to make your headquarters while taking short trips to other points of interest in the area, such as Roanoke Island, Hatteras and Ocracoke. Golf courses, fishing piers, deep sea, sound and inlet fishing centers, souvenir shopping, and recreational areas are readily accessible. We are open all year.

The Cavalier by the Sea is a great trip back in time to the family hotels of yesteryear, located right ON the beach, and conveniently located to all points of interests on the Outer Banks, plus any restaurant or shopping you care to do. We had a pool-side room. Two Adirondeck

Great place to stay. Employees were friendly and nice. Our AC went out and they had it replaced within 30 minutes of letting them know. Great access to the beach. We will definitely stay again with them. Next time we want to get the ocean front room.

Stayed here for first time in mid April. We rented a 3 bedroom cottage for us, our daughter and her children. It was clean and right on the ocean. The front desk lady was very nice. We had the best ever vacation with our grandchildren. They loved the playground and the pool. The

I realized when booking this hotel, it was an older one. Upon arrival, it could be classified as a dump. The exterior was brick, and the grounds were trashy. The cottage 28 where we were to stay was disgusting. Imitation leather furniture, carpet squares with adhesive in the
