About the property

Two Bedroom Cottage Close To Quiet Beach!

Hello! Welcome to Shell Cottage in beautiful Salvo on Hatteras Island. Thank you for your interest. We are located on a quiet street and just 390 feet from the beach access and a few minutes’ drive to a beach day-use park on the sound side. Traditional beach box bungalow. Come and enjoy a cozy and comfortable getaway vacation! This classic beach bungalow is clean, fresh, and comfortable. Great getaway for a couple or small family, kite boarder, and surfers. Have a great, relaxing time at our beautiful beach, never crowded with its golden sands. Enjoy a great day of surf fishing or sunbathing and come out at night with your flashlights and go ghost crab hunting. The roads are quiet and safe to walk or ride your bike to the day-use park. Get away from the hustle and bustle of life. Relax on the deck at night and watch the sky full of stars, so close you feel like you could touch them, or in the screened porch while enjoying your barbeque from the charcoal grill provided. Swim, fish, surf or kiteboard, windsurf, kayak or paddleboard on sound side. Salvo day-use park is perfect for a family with little ones where the water is shallow and warm. Rinse off in the outside shower! General and seafood store within walking distance. Lots of places to rent bikes, boards, kayaks, fishing gear, all close by. Whether you are looking for adventure or just wanting to chill on the beach, cast your worries aside and come enjoy a simple, fun, and relaxing vacation.

(Colony Dr. is a very quiet beach road, no traffic except for residents who live or vacation in Hatteras Colony ).

Wonderful getaway for our family of 5

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five (3 kids ages 4 and under) stayed here for three nights. House was well equipped, and we couldn't think of a thing it lacked for our convenience. We really enjoyed the screen porch and proximity to the beach. The weather was ideal for us (low humidity, not crazy hot), and the window AC units worked perfectly to keep us comfortable. The outdoor shower with hot and cold water was fantastic for rinsing away all the sand after spending both days on the beach.

There was a fair amount of standing water in the neighborhood from rain earlier in the week, so be sure to pack some bug spray along with your sunscreen!

This place was great!

This place was nice an quite. Perfect for a small group. Everything we needed was in the house and it was a short walk to the beach. The fact that it is pet friendly was a big bonus!

Perfect Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Tracy's cottage. We had our dog and three kids. We were able to squeeze our two pack and plays in the kids room. The rooms were nicely decorated and the kitchen had everything you needed for quick meals and snacks. The outdoor shower was awesome. It was perfect for our three night getaway. Highly recommend the food at Waves Market Deli too! The sandwiches were perfection!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the cottage and your time at the beach! We haven't had the Waves deli sandwiches...I have added it to our culinary hit list! Thanks so much.
