Suggestions...Which House Should We Rent




Hi all, we just decided to take a September family trip to Hatteras Island in September. There will be 8 humans and one yellow lab staying in a beach house. I am wondering if any of you could give help me decide on which house we should rent?

We have been to Hatteras Island 3 times in the last 6 years and we only stay in Frisco or Hatteras Village. Here are the two houses we are trying to decide between, there is a price difference between the two with "Pinch Me" being about $1,500 more, we are fine with the price difference, however, we are debating if the higher price one is worth the extra money as both are very nice. Carolina Morning has no elevator, just a luggage lift, and Pinch Me has an elevator and of course is right down in the Hatteras Landing Subdivision so it has that advantage, but I do like staying in Frisco, so I am torn. I have been left with making the final decision on which house we will be staying in and I just am torn between the two.

Have any of you stayed in either of these homes? If so, what are your opinions on each house. Any suggestions are welcome, as I really am torn.

I've never been to either but the cheaper one seems Like a better deal. But Pinch Me is certainly more upscale in my opinion but Unless you have someone who needs the elevator I would go with the first one based on pictures. The $1500 savings can buy more than a few nice nights out! Good luck - you probably can't go wrong.

Views are most important for us. But I agree, go for the more economical rental. We rented a house with an elevator and only used it to get our stuff up one flight of stairs and then never used it again. We can get to where we want faster via the stairs versus the elevator. Unless someone really can't do the steps, then go for an elevator. That is what they are truly for.

They are both nice but unless you medically need a elevator for some reason it seems like a lot of money for something that you probably won't use much.

Wow! Two beautiful homes. Yep, save the money and do more while you are here.


RE: Suggestions...Which House Should We Rent




They are both very nice, but I love HV & would get more fun out of being right there instead of Frisco.

During peak season "Pinch Me" would rent for over $14,000 a week after taxes and such. OMG smiley


RE: Suggestions...Which House Should We Rent




Those are both great choices! If money isn't an issue though, I like Pinch me a little more, and love Hatteras Village, though you really can't go wrong with Frisco either. Both have stellar views.

Thank you for your comments. We are going to go with Pinch Me. The shops and such in Hatteras Landing pushed me towards Pinch Me. We plan on staying at the house most of the time as we all have been to Hatteras Island many times through the years and have done many of the day trips etc. So this will be a stay around the house, fish and just enjoy being with each other vacation, so, I think Pinch Me will be the better choice. We will of course go to Ocracoke and the Point/Shelley Island but other than that we will stay around the house and walk over to the docks and shops if we want to go out for a bit. Thanks again!

If your lab is anything like mine, he will appreciate the carpeted floors of Pinch Me. So funny I looked at both of those houses myself. Carolina has no carpet so that one was immediately out. The price of Pinch Me took that one off the list. Have fun!

First world problem for sure! Both houses look great to me.

True story:
In 2001 my wife and I were interested in the houses they were building down there on Beach Dr where Pinch Me is located ( the model was the house 4 south of it). The real estate agent literally walked us out of there and said to not waste her time. ...We still laugh about that when we go by there.
