My husband and I loved staying at Watermen's retreat Fall 2012 - my husband has been there in the past as well with kiting buddies. I'm a beginner kiter, and this was the perfect place to combine great comfort with excellent kiting. My husband loves Hatteras because he can go kite ocean side, and I can learn on the sound side. We stayed a week and loved having a full kitchen so we could cook healthy and not have to go out too much. Since it was off-season for Hatteras (but full-on season for kiters) we got a great deal for our stay. The little cafe/restaurant located there was really nice - a little limited and on the pricier side, but perfect when you could get half-price fish tacos after a long day on the water. Hatteras is an almost annual trip for my husband, and by staying at Watermen's, I definitely don't mind making it a regular vacation spot.
