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 Avon

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!

Beautiful Views and Super Location!

  • 5 of 5

Surfdancer is fantastic and has it all. Though close to the ocean, it's on a quiet street (at the end). It has a lovely view of a small lake (with a kayak) and is walking distance to local shops. You can even walk to the pool. The house is extremely well-maintained. The owner is very responsive and easy to work with. We plan to come back!

Great location, clean and well laid out condo.

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week at Surfdancer. The condo was great. It features a nice layout with 3 bedrooms on the second floor, one on the third. The kitchen was well stocked with everything need to cook for a crew. The condo was clean, and as advertised. Glen, the owner was easy to work with and followed through on everything he said. If you are kiteboarding, the location couldn't be better. Easy access to kite point and other famous kiting spots. Grocery and restraints are super close too.

This place was great.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review! I would like to clarify for readers that this is a house (versus a condo). The house is on a quiet street and very convenient to shopping and restaurants. I really look forward to hosting you in the future! Glen

Windsurfers' Refuge

  • 5 of 5

Surfdancer is a clean convenient and well maintained property. The kitchen is well equipped for a rental house. The location is walking distance to Food Lion, Dollar General, and Ace Hardware. Windsurfing, kiting, and fishing are short drives away as are restaurants and water sport equipment rentals and sales. The ocean beach is a 5 min. walk.

TV package is very good and wifi works well. Great sunset view from the deck.

My only negative is that I would prefer a queen bed in the master suite. (I don't have any king-size sheets)

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.
