We come to Cape Hatteras each spring to go kiteboarding and usually stay with a big group in a big house. This year my girlfriend and I thought at the last minute it would be nice to be a little more low key and stay with another couple in a smaller house. It was the right decision, we could go visit our friends anytime we wanted but it was pretty easy to escape the chaos of a house with 10+ people to our quaint vacation home! Watermens Oasis had everything we needed and seemed to be recently renovated with a modern touch for an OBX rental!

The outdoor showers and massive porch were definitely bonus' for me and the open concept kitchen / living room was great for cooking and socializing. To top it all of we had 5 days of SouthWest wind with 80F+ for kiteboarding and some nice clean, fun but small waves for surfing and SUP. Fully scored with the house and conditions :) Cant wait to come back...

Watermen's retreat has long been a favorite location for kiteboarding. Only problem was they did not accept pets. They still do not at their premiere Real Kiteboarding property where I have stayed several times. When I discovered they had Cabanas across the street that were pet friendly I quickly changed my reservation. Normally my son and I make the trip alone. Now my wife, who does not kiteboard, can come along and bring our dogs - yellow lab and Cavalier. She was going to paddle board however, we had 3 days of steady southerlies so while we were on the water until we dropped she was with the dogs enjoying the sun.

We are happy to add the Cabanas to our rental properties! Guests still get launching and landing @ REAL Watersports, which is conveniently located just across the street, but now they can bring their 4 legged family members as well!

I am glad you enjoyed your trip and we look forward to your return.

They go out of their way to make our annual winter weekend trip fabulous! I love Donna and her awesome team!! This was our seventh year and we look forward to number eight! The rooms are always immaculate, clean, beautifully furnished and pretty much anything you could need to make a meal is stocked in the kitchen!

This is a great place to stay for a visit to the Hatteras Lighthouse The scenery off the balcony overlooking the sound was wonderful. The kitchen was well stocked. Very modern and comfortable decor. The rooms were big. It was very clean. We want to come back.

My daughter and I stayed at Watermens for one week in early March 2017. Both of us are kiters.
The room was perfect with a wonderful view of the Sound. Room was Buxton Slick.
I rented a board and my daughter rented the works and had 3 days of lessons.
Though it was early March we were lucky with the temperature and wind.
The bar and grill at Real is superb

Room tip: View of Sound
