Papillon Outer Banks Vacation Rental

Just steps away from the ocean on Hatteras Island

Meet The Owners, Bill and Angie Rapant


Bill and Angie Rapant, your hosts at Papillon

We built Papillon as a Hatteras Island retreat in 2002 and arranged for it to be rented through a local management company. Four years later, we purchased the Cape Pines Motel in Buxton, NC, left our former careers in the New York City hospitality industry, and permanently relocated to the Outer Banks.

Since the Cape Pines is located just a few miles from Papillon, we decided to end our relationship with the management firm and take over the rental of our vacation home. We put our more than 20 years experience in four and five-Star hotels to work at Papillon! As hands-on managers, we oversee every detail to ensure our guests have a truly comfortable stay; it also allows us to offer a better rental price than comparable homes rented through traditional management programs.
