Recent Salvo reviews

  • Loved It

    "My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay. House was great. Found several good restaurants within reasonable driving distance. Also a number of interesting shops and a more than adequate supermarket (Food Lion) in Avon - about 15 miles or so. Try to avoid going on Sunday morning, though - very crowded and no beer sold until noon. We would go again without hesitation."

  • Peaceful, Relaxing with plenty of amenities

    "Our family stayed for a week in August, and we had a wonderful time. The house is spacious (we had 11 people) and no one ever felt crowded. The deck overlooks the Sound side and the sunsets were stunning. Four king beds were a huge plus. The theatre, kitchen and family room were all used extensively. Pool & Hot tub were actually cleaned mid week and Saturday. We loved it and would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet get away with family or friends. It is away from the hustle-bustle of Nags Head (which reminded us too much of Myrtle Beach)."

  • Wonderful!

    "We had such a great and relaxing vacation at the Escape Hatch. Pictures do not do it justice! Enjoyed every day of our vacation just relaxing at the beach (which is only a short walk away), cooking out on the grill, hanging out on the deck at night listening to the ocean and walking down to the local ice cream shop! Would come back again for sure, cant wait for our next trip :) Thanks again Dale, you were very on top of everything and it is much appreciated!"

  • Perfect cozy cottage!

    "My parents, husband, and one year old daughter stayed here for a week, and it was a wonderful experience! The house was the perfect size for our small group and really felt like a home away from home! It was well stocked with kitchen essentials, and the pool and hot tub were immaculately clean and such a wonderful amenity to have! There is one bedroom downstairs, which was perfect for my aging parents to not have to attempt the climb up the small spiral staircase, but you can also reach the upstairs using an external staircase from the back deck. Our daughter had no problem avoiding the stairs, but more adventurous little ones should be monitored, as the staircase could be a hazard. The beach is a comfortable walk away, but be warned that there is a large dune to climb over--it took my mother a bit longer with her trick knee to join us at the beach! The house is also in walking distance of a small deli/grocery store, which was very convenient. All in all a wonderful stay, and I would not hesitate to recommend it!"

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.
