About the property

6 Bedroom, 4.5 Bath, Sleeps 12

Kick back and relax in our beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable semi-oceanfront home. We are literally steps from the beach! We recently opened our entire home to guests. Expect the same great hospitality our guests experienced when we offered just the apartment. We provide bed linens and bath towels. We also have a gas grill for your personal use, as well as a private pool and hot tub. Southern Living Magazine ranked The Outer Banks #1 in their 2017 "The South's Best Islands" feature. This is the best the beach has to offer at the most reasonable rates! We look forward to seeing you at the beach!!!

About John Hobson

John and I are avid beach people. There is no place like the beach to soothe your soul, thus the name of our place 'Soul Soother'. We have stayed in many places and our goal was to make our beach retreat a place people would want to come back to again and again!

Why John Hobson chose Waves

The Outer Banks in general is well known for it's great fishing opportunities. Hatteras Island is famous for it's surfing and kite boarding. Waves has one of the best beaches on the east coast. Our beach is very wide. Everyone has their own space. No stacking up next to your neighbor here! You are guaranteed to fall in love with the tri-villages of Rodanthe, Waves and Salvo. Come for one visit and you'll be coming for a lifetime.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time here at Soul Soother! This is a great getaway spot for two. Loved the pool, hot tub and bikes! The best part was getting to spend time together and watching the sun rise over the ocean. Thanks for making our first Outer Banks trip and enjoyable and relaxing one!

Awesome !! Super clean & amenities had everything we needed & steps to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect getaway for 2! Super clean, way much better than staying at a motel, lots of room. Amenities had everything we needed to cook or grill. The hot tub was an added plus & wonderful to relaxe in each evening. Steps to the beach & over the dunes, we enjoyed fishing so close but Jose chased the fish away!! Hosts are awesome, only saw them one time as we checked in & so accommodating with choices of dining out. It was a SOUL SOOTHing mini-vacation. Would definitely come to this home again!!

What a great place to stay. Everything was perfect at the Soul Soother

  • 5 of 5

Had no problems at all with anything. The Soul soother is a perfect couples retreat and so relaxing. The hot tub was perfect after a long day of motorcycle riding. Everything was ready for us and exactly as explained in the listing and so much more. Would highly recommend staying here.
