Explore our Waves, NC vacation rentals

Waves, North Carolina is one of the northern villages on Hatteras Island, which is part of North Carolina’s Outer Banks. Sitting on a narrow strip of land 30 miles out in the middle of the ocean, Waves is nestled between the Atlantic Ocean to the east and the Pamlico Sound to the west. With little to no commercial activity, Waves is an excellent place to escape to get away from the hustle and bustle of big city life.

The Outer Banks is an annual trip for many adventurers and families looking to enjoy summers together or some time to rest. Waves beachfront homes are your perfect reason to never stray too far from the water. Fish, boat, lounge, explore, and soak up the sun.

Things to do 

Waves is a popular destination for surfers, kiteboarders, and windsurfers, as well as visitors who just enjoy relaxing and strolling the quiet, uncrowded beaches. Home to one of the largest watersports companies on the east coast, Waves is a mecca for anyone who loves water, wind, and waves. The peaceful village has a few restaurants and shops, to offer visitors a relaxed experience. 

A grocery store and additional dining and shopping opportunities are 20 miles to the south. Many of our Waves vacation rentals are spacious homes with excellent access to the ocean and/or sound. A bike path allows guests to explore the village on bikes or on foot.
