Property description

Our Ocean Front home we call 'Absolut Pleasure' is a newer home built in the 'Old Nags Head Style'. It was designed with first class accommodations in mind. A smoke-free and pet friendly home, it is situated at a slightly higher elevation and closer to the beach than neighboring homes providing exceptional views and privacy.

We keep our calendar updated regularly.

** For 2014 we have freshly repainted the interior, installed new carpeting, and lots of new furniture including a new 2nd king bedroom and dining set. Now both master bedrooms are kings.***


All four bedrooms are large and two of them have private baths. The other two bedrooms and the den / Media Room (which has french doors for privacy and can be used more like a bedroom) share a hall bath.

Every room at Absolut Pleasure has a view of the ocean!

When you first arrive at Absolut Pleasure you will be impressed with its stylistic architecture (A classic beach cottage look, updated and expanded to today's needs) and spacious front porch from which you can enjoy the sunsets over the Pamlico Sound in the evenings.

A covered car port, outside shower, large storage closet and underhouse entry are on the ground level.

Step up to the entry level and you will notice right away the nine foot ceilings, crystal door knobs, and hardwood entry foyer.

There are three bedrooms, a den, and two baths on this level, plus a laundry area. Two of the bedrooms (one master with King, and the other shared bath with Queen) and the Den / Media Room (which has french doors for privacy and has a flat screen TV and surround sound) on this level are ocean front and open to a wide shaded deck with six person hot tub.

From this level you will have a lovely view of the rolling sand dunes and the Atlantic Ocean. The comfortable third bedroom on this level has two twin beds (shared bath) and has a view of the ocean as well.

On the top level you can enjoy even better views with the dunes, wide beach, and the surf right in front of you. Here there is an open great room with leather seating and kitchen, and a separate half bath.

The gas fireplace on this level comes in handy for chilly (or romantic) evenings. Step out from the great room to the ocean front deck and enjoy yourself basking in the sun and listening to the rolling surf.

Also on this level is a private Ocean Front master bedroom suite (King) with a jetted jacuzzi tub in the bathroom, and an ocean front screened porch accessible from both the bedroom and the sun deck.

Over the past few years we have made significant updates including new paint in warm colors, new hardwood flooring, Pottery Barn and Nautica bedding, new living room furniture and nice artwork throughout.

Hatteras Island is a special place. 70% of the 60 mile long Island is undeveloped United States parkland. As such Hatteras' character is unique, and unlike the rest of the Outer Banks.

It's less developed and retains more of its natural charm and beauty than the northern beaches. Our vacation home is located in Avon, a small community situated at the mid-point on the island just five miles north of the Cape Hatteras light house.

It's a good location to be as all the services you might need on your vacation are available in the community Banking, Large Grocery, Restaurants, etc.

Recreation available nearby includes: Windsurfing at Canadian Hole (best on the east coast), Surf, Pier, and Deep Sea fishing (we are near the gulf stream), and of course miles and miles of beautiful beaches.

Absolut Pleasure is our second home and we try to make it as nice for ourselves and our guests as possible. We think you will like it too! Our property is professionally managed, and when you are ready to book a lease will be sent outlining all the terms of your vacation rental. While linens and towels are not included in the rental price, they are available to be delivered with beds made.

About: My name is David, I thought of how much my dog Sandy loves this house so I put a picture of her here, but VRBO said it wasn't allowed so you will have to look at me instead ;)

Why Avon:
While looking all over the outer banks for a place of our own, this house popped up. We drove down and Avon NC had such a great feeling as truly 'getting away' we knew this was it.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There are alot of oceanfront homes on the outer banks. What made this home so special for us, was it was newer, but built in the traditional style. Large covered front porch, traditional style decking, cedar outside, wainscotting inside. Lots of character, not just another box on the beach.
