SOUNDFRONT Salvo - Otter Way The stunning soundfront surroundings of this home will have you saying, 'SOUNDS TERRIFIC'!

Drone Video: "Be sure to view this outstanding video. Click Video located in banner at top of photo."

Water sports enthusiasts will adore the convenient access to some of the island’s best windsurfing and kiteboarding, and others will enjoy the simplicity of paddling the kayak around the sound getting to know nature.

The large game room offers a pool table, kitchenette, and TV/DVD/VCR, and nearby are two master bedrooms (2 sets of bunks, 1 king) and an easily accessible full hall bath. Discover the media room with home theater system w/surround sound, or follow the soundfront deck to the steamy hot tub and crystal blue swimming pool with water fall.

Upstairs you’ll find five master suites, four with shaded waterfront decks. The top level has a superior master suite with whirlpool tub. Drink in the endless sound views in the great room in front of the cozy gas fireplace and built-in entertainment center with TV/DVD/VCR & stereo/CD player. The elegant dining area offers nightly sunset dinners, and the large, tiled kitchen is a chef's dream with granite counter tops, breakfast bar with second sink, ice machine, and double dishwashers. In the evenings, take a leisurely stroll down to the waterfront on the community boardwalk located nearby and watch the blue herons & egrets gather along the shoreline, or simply enjoy sunset paddling around the Pamlico.

It all SOUNDS TERRIFIC to me! New 1st level media room with 55' Sony TV with surround sound and a new 8-bottle wine cooler in 2007.

About owner/property manager

We are John and Phyllis Walston from Emporia, VA. We are about 3 1/2 hour drive to Sounds Terrific.

owner/property manager purchased this house in 2006

Why owner/property manager chose Salvo

We rented a couple of times because our son was into Kiteboarding. It's the worlds best place for this unique sport. Also the most magnificates sunsets and best fishing on the east coast. We fell in love with this location and purchased this sound front home. We have made lots of memories with good friend and family.

What makes this house unique

We love to pack up the SUV and take everyone right on the beach. It's fun to drive right beside the ocean.

Guestbook comments from the manager

When we drove up the driveway and I noticed how nice the landscaping was, I knew then, we were in for a treat! My family and friends were so excited…everyone thought the card and bottle of wine was very thoughtful and a nice touch. Your home “Sounds Terrific” is “beautiful” and just perfect, everyone truly enjoyed themselves. The decorations in the entire house are lovely! You put a great deal of thought and care into every detail, it’s truly appreciated. We had a wonderful view of those who went kayaking and of the deer! I am so happy I chose your home and look forward to returning next year.

Best of the Best!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Best Place In The World

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with our family. This is our 3rd trip to the OBX and one of my favorite places. We had 10 adults and 9 children here this week and it never seemed crowded. The house, pool and view is spectacular. We look forward to our next trip but not our 12+ hour ride home to Massachusetts!
