Recent Salvo reviews

  • Honeymooners

    "The property exceeded our expectations. The salt box is your home away from home. The kitchen comes well stocked with equipment to make just about any meal. We also took advantage of the grill while we were there which is very well maintained. The house is very close to the beach and local restaurants. The owner checked in on us our first day just to make sure we settled in ok. The property manager also dropped in to ensure we had basic supplies. We would stay there again if in the area."

  • Calm vacation

    "The area of Salvo is perfect for a quiet vacation, 30 to 40 min drive to Kill Devil Hills. Beach access walkway from the house is 2 houses over and available to neighboring homes, I would call it a short hike to the beach. Beach area is fairly private and had no issues with a 9 and 5yo running all over the beach. The area is QUIET, people mostly driving through Salvo to get south. Grocery store 15 min south of Salvo and a few restaurants within a close drive of the house. Dollar Tree store by the Food Lion also if you need a few dollar items you didn't have room to pack or discovered you need. Now for the house; easy to find it's really blue but so is every 15th house in the area. Pool was great for days the kids wanted to swim but were concerned about the weather walking to the beach. Fridge and ice maker at pool, plenty of seating, no pool toys, pool kept clean! Outdoor enclosed shower with hot water, BONUS! Main bedrooms have deck access, kids bunk rooms do not have deck access, SAFETY! Bedrooms are sufficient sizes for sleeping. We slept in the first main bedroom. The liquid barrier sheet is sooo crunchy sounding and there was some issue with the frame being very creaky just from rolling over. We should have tried another bed. Extra blankets and pillows in huge closet. Bathrooms were spacious enough but bring or buy your TP. They provide half size rolls, we brought 2 rolls with us and had to buy more; 1 female, 3 males. Trash bags provided are super thin and clear, bring your own. Beautiful kitchen was FULLY stocked with appliances, tupperware, and silverware. Plenty of main floor room for two families. Rec area upstairs great for kids but kids needed railing rules! Hot tub was a great experience for kids and would be great for adults if the weather was cooler. House was clean, no sand on the floor but a cleaning service does not put that touch of care into the home that an owner would. Straightening drawers, washing small rugs, making sure the clock worked, etc. Refrigerator ice maker did not work, we kept the pool ice in a bowl in the freezer, owners apologized in a note, not a convienient feature though. We were responsible for taking out trash on certain days but didnt realize until 3 days in, wasn't a problem though, more of a surprise. Sun rises over the ocean at the deck area and sets at front of the house by car port, absolutely beautiful."

  • Beautiful home - needs some attention

    "First, the home was beautiful. Loved the space. The kitchen cooking supplies are very limited, but plenty of dishes. Had two days of rain and several roof leaks. One couple had to relocate their room. Lights were broken and couldn't figure out how to play music at pool - no directions, speakers are there. Couldn't hook computer to TV to watch a football game that was not available on any station. It was a beautiful home, it just needs some maintenance attention."

  • Lost at Sea = Paradise Found!

    "This was our first VRBO experience. Our dog rescue group meets annually at OBX. This year we decided to rent a house vice a cabin at the KOA. The previous year we had scouted several homes we might be interested in and Lost at Sea was on the short list. The owner was extremely responsive and patient pre-rental to all our rookie questions. Arrival - Wow pretty much sums it up. We didn't want or need a 4 story, 10 bedroom place for us and our two dogs. LaS is the perfect size and we love the open floor plan. It was the perfect size for us and our pups. There is a second bedroom if a couple additional humans were in attendance. EVERYTHING has been thought out. A great welcome package awaits, handy items one might need or forgotten and it's complete with treats for pups (did I mention this home is incredibly dog friendly?). The home is beautiful and the accommodations perfect! The upper deck is perfect to view sunsets from the west or the sunrise over the ocean. The beach is a short walk through the dunes from the house, but the sound of the waves is clear from all decks/open doors etc... The homes around LaS were all occupied during our visit, however we had no issues with noise or privacy. The best rating we can give is that we have already booked our 2015 vacation at OBX and we will be staying at Lost at Sea 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.
