  • Overall nice place but slightly different than description

    "This was a nice house to stay for a week, really enjoyed the desk. However, the description of the house stated it as Ocean front but it was more Ocean sound as the view of the ocean was blocked by another house in front of us. It was a tad further to the actual beach than we expected and there were cactuses all over which were not pet friendly. The owner was very responsive and wonderful to work with - always available if questions arose. The location for a tad far for my teenagers but if you go with older people who didn't want to go into nags head everyday, the location is fine. Very quiet and relaxing. Kitchen well stocked but smaller refrigerator did old by the end of the week."

  • You will feel right at home

    "What a great place! This house was large, it slept or group of 13 with ease. There was enough space that you had room to breathe and everyone was not piled on top of one another. The kitchen was modern and very well stocked with everything and anything you needed. Clean from top to bottom it was just a comfortable “you feel right at home” setting. The several hundred yards to walk to the beach was more than I expected, especially trying to carry chairs and a cooler. The drive on the beach permit is the way to go. The seclusion was great, it was always peaceful. The owner is wonderful to deal with and ready to assist you with anything you need, she could not have been more accommodating. A long walk to the beach but overall I would consider this house A+A+A+."

  • Best of the Best!

    "Hello, my name is Vince and I am currently on my last night in your wonderful beach house, Sounds Terrific! Since I was a baby my parents brought me to the Outer Banks twice a year. We started out camping in a pop up at Pea Island Resort before it became what it is named now. Eventually we outgrew that and my parents began renting homes from Surf or Sound. These were the greatest memories of my childhood, despite all of the other places my parents took me around the country. When I became an adult with a family of my own I continued to come out here and rent homes from Surf or Sound twice a year. Now that I am nearly 37 and have teenagers of my own this is still every bit of my heaven as it was when I was a young child. I come once a year with my family and once a year with other couples that have never gotten to experience the Outer Banks. We are on the latter of two trips currently, but planning a Thanksgiving family trip for this November. I have stayed in so many of the homes but this is the first time I have ever stayed sound side. I have to say out of all the homes that I have stayed in your home is the best one yet hands down. It is beautiful, comfy, and has everything you could need and more. For the first time I am not interested in staying at another home and cannot wait to come back and stay here again!"

Salvo Travel Tips

Salvo Beach House Rentals: Quiet and Stress Free

Lighthouse enthusiasts are in heaven when visiting North Carolina's Outer Banks. These monolithic spires of brick and mortar have protected seafaring men and women for centuries, and many still work today. When a lighthouse-viewing excursion is in the works, consider Salvo beach house rentals to meet lodging needs in an extraordinary way. With several Salvo homes to choose from, families and large groups are sure to find the perfect place to enjoy a Hatteras Island stay. Salvo beach house rentals range from luxurious sound-front or ocean-view homes with game rooms, home gyms, and hot tubs to cozy cottages offering seclusion, privacy, and stress-free living.

Lighthouses Galore at the Outer Banks

The Outer Banks are barrier islands just over 50 miles in length. Many lighthouses rest along these shores and are within driving distance from Salvo homes. The most notable light, Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, is the nation's tallest and most recognized lighthouse. It was originally built in 1797. Visitors may climb over 260 stairs and take in the awe-inspiring views from the top. Bodie Island Lighthouse, a 15-story lighthouse, was rebuilt three times in the 1800s. Its beacon shines 19 miles out to sea. Currituck Beach Lighthouse stands at 158 feet and was built in 1875. This brick and mortar spire is unpainted, making it possible to see the various bricks used during construction. Ocracoke Lighthouse emits a constant beam from its 75-foot summit and shines 14 miles off the shoreline to guide ships around the treacherous sandbars known as the Diamond Shoals.

Some Don't fit the Mold

Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse doesn't necessarily fit the prototypical mold for lighthouses, but it is actually a screwpile lighthouse modeled after the previous light that dominated its location for nearly 80 years. Centrally located, Outer Banks vacation rentals are perfectly nestled amongst these wonderful, historic landmarks.
