If you are looking for pristine, unspoiled beaches less than a minute's stroll away and the sound of waves crashing into the seashore lulling you to sleep, look no further than Shells Yeah!

Located oceanside in Avon on Hatteras Island, at Shells Yeah! you will feel like you have escaped the rest of the world, even though every modern amenity you could need is at your fingertips.

You are minutes away from restaurants, shopping, outdoor activities, Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, a 4x4 area, a fishing pier, charter fishing boats, and a quick drive to the free ferry that will whisk you off to Ocracoke Island for a day trip to explore the quaint island and search for Blackbeard's lost treasure. The only full size grocery store on Hatteras Island, Food Lion, is conveniently only 2 miles away.

Shells Yeah! is less than a minute's stroll from a beach access that will beckon you to Avon's widest, white sandy, uncrowded beach. There are no busy streets to cross on your 45 second journey down our quiet street aptly named Ocean Lane. A second beach access is just another ½ block down. With no public beach parking nearby, you are sharing the beach only with those within walking distance.

If you are unfamiliar with Hatteras Island, you will enjoy our 72 miles of unspoiled beachfront, consistently voted one of the top 10 best beaches in the US. Because of our proximity to the Gulf Stream (which touches the tip of Cape Hatteras) and the island’s unique shape, we enjoy the most temperate year round climate north of Florida and our ocean temperatures are up to 10 degrees warmer than northern OBX villages like Nags Head and Duck. The island’s remote location and low light pollution also mean that you can wish upon plenty of stars and even the Milky Way at night. Shooting stars are a common sight!

Our 1/4 acre property is among the biggest oceanside lots in Avon, and Shells Yeah! was recently sided in a classic beachy yellow. There is plenty of space to park and 2 entrances to the house. We have a charcoal grill for outdoor cooking, a private outdoor shower with hot and cold water for rinsing off, and a fish cleaning table with a water line in case you get lucky and catch the big one.

New in 2014 - a Stair Tamer cargo lift, so you can save your stamina for long walks on the beach and send your groceries and luggage up to the house level at the push of a button.

Shells Yeah! has 4 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms and sleeps 10 vacationers with true comfort (no sofa beds or futons here). There are ceiling fans in every room to capture the ocean breeze. Our decorations are one of a kind, and you are encouraged to have your picture taken with our mascot Captain Shells Yeah! and his trusty sidekick Perch.

For your viewing enjoyment, we have Direct TV and the NFL Sunday Ticket, so football fans visiting in the late summer and fall can catch the home game no matter where 'home' is.

The living room is designed with your comfort in mind. We have 3 comfy sofas and a chair so that everyone can spread out. We have a flat screen tv with DVD player, a Nintendo Wii system for the kid in all of us, a skylight for extra sunshine, and a beautiful glimpse of the Pamlico Sound.

The open concept continues into the kitchen where you can catch a tiny glimpse of the ocean through the east facing window. We installed brand new stainless steel appliances in 2011 including a side by side refrigerator with ice maker and filtered water on the door, electric flat top stove, microwave oven, and dishwasher. There are plenty of dishes, silverware, and utensils should you wish to stay in for meals instead of partaking in the island's creative restaurants. We have both a standard coffee maker and a Keurig, for those who enjoy their coffee at the push of a button.

In the dining room you will find an oak table with seating for six and sliding glass doors that open onto a spacious deck with built in benches and adirondack chairs for seating or sunbathing. If it's a full house, there is additional seating at the picnic table on our 22x10 screened porch located just off the dining room, which also includes a double swing from Nags Head Hammocks, two sturdy gliders, two side tables for snacks and beverages, and additional seating.

The master bedroom includes a master bathroom (renovated in 2012) with shower and plenty of closet and dresser space for the true fashionistas. We selected a top of the line king mattress for your ultimate comfort, and a chair will provide seating while you slip on your flip flops. Topping it off is a flat screen tv with DVD player and a small glimpse of the sound.

The second bedroom is furnished with a queen bed, seating, closet and dresser space, and a flat screen tv with DVD player. You can catch a small glimpse of the sound.

The third bedroom is furnished with a full size bed, closet and dresser space, and a flat screen tv with DVD player. You can catch a small glimpse of the ocean.

The fourth bedroom is furnished with a full size bed, bunk bed, closet and dresser space, and a flat screen tv with DVD player. You can catch a small glimpse of the sound.

The high efficiency washer and dryer are conveniently inside the house, and centrally located so everyone has equal access to cleaning their beach attire.

Rounding it out is the second bathroom (partially renovated in 2012) with a bathtub and shower.

Best of all, your beds will be made and ready for you when you arrive, at no extra cost! No need to fill your car with bedding for 10 people or pay sky high rates to rent sheets for a week. You can head right to the beach instead of wasting an hour making six beds after your long drive. Just bring your bath and beach towels!

For those who cannot escape from reality altogether, we have wireless high speed Internet and local and long distance telephone service within the US.

And did we mention, for an additional fee, that your 4 legged kids can join you on vacation? Up to 2 well behaved dogs are welcome, and will have as much fun as you exploring the beach.

Weekly rentals are available from late March through November with a Sunday check-in so you can avoid the Friday-Saturday traffic. We are owner managed, so you can have the comfort of knowing that you are dealing with someone who knows you by name, not by property number.

We hope that you find the old time beachy charm of Avon (historically named Kinnakeet) as enchanting as we do, and when anyone asks you if you had a great vacation this year, you can answer unequivocally, 'Shells Yeah!'
