About Glen Morgan

I'm a researcher at the National Cancer Institute of NIH.

My love-affair with the Atlantic's barrier islands began during my summers as a lifeguard on Assateague Island in Maryland. As surfing developed into a passion, I began to venture to Hatteras Island since it was the ideal water-sports playground in a pristine natural seashore setting. My two sons loved the beach when they were young, and continued to enjoy Hatteras as teens and now, as adults. Avon on Hatteras Island is the anchor where all the generations of my extended family love to get together on an annual basis. And, yes, I am still surfing - with the same crew - in Hatteras!

Glen Morgan purchased this house in 2002

Why Glen Morgan chose Hatteras Island

After 20 years of vacationing in the Outer Banks, I had a pretty good idea of what all of the locations and villages had to offer. The northern part of the Outer Banks is too over-developed to suit me. Avon Village is centrally located, has more amenities than any other Hatteras Island location, and is bordered on the north and south by the beautiful Hatteras Island National Seashore (5 mins from the house). You have easy access to the Ocean and Sound Beaches for swimming, surfing, shell collecting, windsurfing, kite-boarding, and many other activities. This area is truly unparalleled on the Atlantic Coast and has been repeatedly named in the top ten beaches in the US.

What makes this house unique

Kick back and enjoy the sunset over the water from the back deck!

Kayak around the lake in the back yard.

Very convenient to the beach!

Love this house!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our October stay in the house. The owner is super easy to work with and very professional. The house was exactly as expected, clean, great light and great location. Nice walk to the beach and great exercise going up and down the stairs. Like the look of the pool and tennis courts too. We really enjoyed AMs on the front porch and PMs on the back porch over looking the lake. Also, sunsets are a must at the Haulover area right outside Avon while watching the Kite surfing...a premier location on the East Coast! And dinner at Pangea and hanging out by the Pier was also a favorite. Uglie Mugs has great coffee, goodies and art too. Great place and we will be back!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Surfdancer and it was better than the first! The weather was perfect and the beach was not crowded at all. Glen is great to work with and is always very helpful! We loved drinking coffee on the deck and had a bonfire on the beach one night. It was a perfect vacation and I will definitely go back again! I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing, and fun getaway.

2 Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second use of Surfdancer. The house is roomy and spacious enough for 2 families, 7 children between the ages of 11 & 18, and their parents. We had enough room for privacy for all. The home was clean and well maintained. Good location to reach many Outer Banks attractions. The fisherman in our group enjoyed the lake behind the house as well as the nearby pier. The reviews can not do justice only to the home itself but its owner as well. Everything was great and we had no reason to call Glenn, but on our first trip he even called to check on us to see if we needed anything since we were first time visitors. He is a very friendly and outgoing owner who provides lists of things to pack as well as lists of nearby shops and restaurants. He even lists places of interest for those of us who enjoy his home. There are books, board games and even video games for all to enjoy. The close proximity to the hardware, Food Lion and Dollar store are a plus. Another perk is the use of the tennis courts and the Olympic sized pool when the kids want water without sand. We have asked to rent again in 2017.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in the Outer Banks staying at Surfdancer. Thete was room for everyone and its proximity to the shopping area was terrific for the older kids to walk up to Food Lion for more snacks! That was a convenient perk I had not expected. Property was well maintained and the home owner was responsive and helpful to all our questions.
