Interaction with guests

Other things to note

Like Nicholas Sparks?? The Serendipity house from the book/movie "Nights in Rodanthe" is directly across the street! You can lounge on the beach and feel swept away by the books romantic scenery.

We are open to all walks of life and encourage everyone to feel at home so long as you're a decent human with good intentions looking for some adventure, relaxation, passing through or just good company, welcome.

IF YOU BRING YOUR FURRY FRIEND, PLEASE TELL US IN YOUR FIRST MESSAGE. We live next door and our dogs are off-leash pups so it gives us piece of mind to know who our guests are bringing with them so that we may introduce our dogs to them properly and/or know that if they are outside together there are no worries. We like knowing the breed and temperament before your arrival so that we can adjust accordingly. All breeds are welcome.

Please no cigarette smoking in the house and please throw away your butts in the trash, not in the yard.

If you stain the towels or linens with makeup/dirt etc...we expect to be reimbursed at $5 per towel and $20 per set of sheets. This is not a hotel, we do not have an endless supply.

Dogs are welcome but please only bring dogs that are well trained, outside potty trained and not "mat trained".

No dogs sleeping on the beds or furniture, it is too difficult to launder out pet hair and smell between guests, please be considerate.

If you go to the beach, please rinse yourself and your pets off thoroughly using the outdoor shower or hose the best you can rather than in the house shower. Sand is not fun to clean out of pipes, off furniture and the floors.

The surfboard, kayak and paddleboard are our personal items and are not easily replaced so if you break or severely damage any of them, you are responsible for the repair or replacement if we are unable to fix it ourselves. They are all used items so we understand if it's something minor, this is only in the case of severe damage, loss or destruction. Also, these items are on a first come, first serve basis....we use these items as well so be sure to let us know that you would like to use them so that everyone can enjoy them. We are not responsible for any injuries while using our equipment, use at your own risk.

Dawn's place in Rodanthe was perfect for our quiet fall beach getaway. Lots of room for the two of us plus our dog. Easy access to the beach and other areas of interest, restaurants, markets, etc. Didn't get a chance to go in the pool, but it was nice to be able to hang out poolside and enjoy the ocean air.

Perfect Location for what we went for. Beach walking and shelling at Pea Island. We went in the off season and it was amazing. This was my 1st AirBnb and The Beach Shack didn’t disappoint. Everything was perfect.

The shack was clean and modern. No more than 45 mins from everything. Close to the beautiful beaches. We loved being close to the horse rides on the beach and near the local lighthouses.

We just got back from a trip to the Outer Banks & Dawn’s was a great choice for the two of us! It was clean, nicely decorated, & all of the basics were provided (dish ware, linens, etc.). The location itself was quiet, but literally a walk across the street from the beach access. It’s also a very convenient location for getting to other spots, like Ocracoke & the lighthouses & areas to drive on the beach. A major plus for us was that we could bring along our dogs & they had a blast accompanying us on most of our adventures! We also rented two kayaks from Dawn, which was very easy & cheaper than going through one of the rental places. The pool was still open, although it was cooler during our stay & we didn’t use it. It would be a wonderful option during the summer, though. Overall, we were very pleased with the communication & lodging & would definitely book again on a future trip!

When looking at a map to see the location in relationship to the beach the map does not do it justice!! It's just a quick walk across the highway and you're basically in the sand. The shack is the perfect size with a spacious kitchen. The pool was crystal clear and so relaxing. I would definitely recommend a stay here!!
