About the property

Cottage, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Such a quaint cottage with so many extras including a detached guesthouse! New to the rental market and fully updated, Pelican Point is a unique retreat with amazing wetland and sound views and over an acre of outdoor space partially shaded by majestic live oaks, cedars and a large fig tree. Direct sound access, a large grassy area for rigging and a boardwalk to a spacious private soundfront dock and more than 500 feet of soundfront shoreline make for a watersports paradise, whether windsurfing, kiteboarding, fishing, crabbing or kayaking. And if your thoughts turn to the ocean it's an easy walk to Salvo's wide and un-crowded sandy beaches for a day of surfing, boogie boarding, fishing, shelling or just relaxing in the sun.

After a fantastic day on the water come home for a dip in the private soundfront pool or 6-person hot tub to watch the sunset over the sound; or relax with a game of horseshoes or bocce on the lawn. A huge fig and live oak canopy provides ample shade to while the day away with a good book or a shady spot for the tots to play. A small wetlands beach, sheltered and shallow waters and small playhouse under the oaks are great for little kids, and everyone can enjoy the gameroom with pool table, basketball hoop and hammock in the cedars.

The main cottage allows easy access for all including seniors and handicapped, with one-level living, a ramp to the back door, and a bathroom with large accessible shower. It features a large and well-equipped kitchen with new stainless steel appliances and views over the pool to the sound, a dining area that seats 12, and new high-efficiency washer & dryer. The sunny living room has spectacular sound views, a 42' flat-screen TV with cable, Blu-ray DVD, a huge selection of movies on demand via Netflix, and a massive music library via Pandora Internet Radio.

The cottage has 4 bedrooms including two masters. Bedroom 1 is a master with a king bed, flat-screen 26' TV / DVD with cable, large bathroom with a handicapped accessible shower, and stunning views over the pool to the wetlands and sound. Bedroom 2 is a master with a queen bed and bathroom with bath and shower, and large windows with views of the sun rising through the cedars. Bedroom 3 has a queen bed and sliding glass doors to a brick patio on the soundside, and bedroom 4 has two sets of bunks (4 twin beds). Bedrooms 3 and 4 are by the hall bathroom which has a bath and shower.

The cozy detached guesthouse is about 30 feet from the cottage (on the other side of the pool) via a walkway and ramp, and has a part-covered deck with porch swing, adirondack chairs and amazing wetland and soundfront views - a great place to watch the many birds that visit, the kiteboarders speeding by or the breathtaking sunsets. Inside there is a gameroom with pool table and 32' flat-screen TV with cable / Blu-ray DVD / Netflix / Pandora, and a wetbar with full-size refrigerator / ice-maker, microwave, toaster and coffee maker. There is also a media room (which doubles as a second living room) with a large sectional sofa with fold-out full bed, and 42' flat-screen TV with cable and Blu-ray DVD with Netflix on-demand movies and Pandora Internet Radio. The guesthouse also features one cozy bedroom with a queen bed, and a bathroom with shower.

Pelican Point is a traditional Hatteras cottage that has been fully updated, but without losing the simple island charm reminiscent of the more remote Ocracoke Island, where live oaks stand watch over one-story cottages and small family cemeteries that tell the story of the island. In fact the cottage is built by the site of the traditional homestead and resting place of some of the original settlers in the area. Their homestead lasted hundreds of years on the high ground by the live oaks, with the land where Pelican Point now stands serving as the family farm and route to the wetlands and sound for hunting and fishing. Although the original homestead has made way for development, some of the descendants still live near Pelican Point and are great neighbors with wonderful stories to tell!

To help make your stay as enjoyable and relaxed as possible we have teamed with Shore Details, a premier property management company based near Pelican Point and led by friendly and helpful owners Pam and Rene Stoffel. Shore Details will clean and prepare Pelican Point for your arrival; provide bed linens and make the beds; and stock the house with an initial supply of paper towels, toilet paper, dish detergent and trash bags to get you started. Shore Details is just a phone call away to take care of any problems or concerns during your stay, and also provides a great personal concierge service to help you plan outings and activities to get the most out of your vacation!

About The Owner

We're a family of four with two active young boys and love watersports, taking long walks on the beach and relaxing with friends and family. We particularly enjoy windsurfing, surfing, sailing and kayaking - and want to add kiteboarding and fishing to the list!

Based in central NC, we race to the Outer Banks at every opportunity. Our kids love to kayak, crab, climb Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, visit the turtles and take the free ferry across to Ocracoke. We all love the friendly, laid-back atmosphere on the Outer Banks, and the amazing sights and seafood!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2010

Why The Owner chose Hatteras Island

Since moving to NC in 2007 we found ourselves visiting the Outer Banks more and more often. The beautiful soundfront views and unspoiled beaches of Salvo soon became our favorite destination - even in the height of summer the beaches are uncrowded and there is always a quiet spot to windsurf or kayak on the sound. The major attractions are all close by too: Hatteras and Bodie Lighthouses, The Graveyard of the Atlantic, Lost Colony and Wright Brothers Museums.

Our breath was literally taken away when we first saw Pelican Point - it is a little piece of paradise by the sound. You have to experience the stunning 180 degree wetland & sound views and 200 year old live oaks to fully appreciate the wild beauty and see why we love this spot.

What makes this cottage unique

Pelican Point has hundreds of feet of soundfront access, over an acre of outdoor space and is only a short walk to the ocean beaches. There are rental shops nearby for kayaks, surfboards, bikes and beach equipment, and for kiteboarders Real Watersports and The Slick are just to the north. Grocery and fishing supply shops are a five minute drive and a cinema and larger shopping district can be found in Avon, a 15-20 minute drive away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time, we may have left a little piece of all of our hearts there. And we will for sure be back. What a beautiful beautiful spot you have there and the dock is just gorgeous! Thanks again for sharing your paradise!

Peaceful, relaxing beautiful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Pelican Point. The property was extremely clean and was perfect for our family. We enjoyed the pool, hot tub and especially the pier where the sunsets were amazingly beautiful. Unfortunately we had to cut our vacation short due to a family emergency, but are already talking about next years visit! I would recommend this vacation home to anyone who is looking for a relaxing vacation. Thank you for allowing us to share your vacation home!

We didn't want to leave this beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

We had two weeks of bliss in this place and loved the sunsets, wildlife, paddling from the dock, short walk to the beach and the lovely pool and guesthouse. It was easy to relax and had plenty of room for the whole family. The teens loved the guesthouse with pool table, the younger kids loved the yard, pool and the many critters we discovered along the dock and waters edge. We all loved the hot tub! Great location on the sound with the bonus of a very short walk to the beach side. Well equipped house, all well thought out. Nature lovers paradise, we were so excited to find a great variety of birds, turtles, lizards and great fishing, although we had no luck as it was not quite the right time of year. We would recommend the canoe and kayak rental delivery at DVO and there is a Food Lion grocery store about 15 minutes away, although there is also the lovely Harris Teeter about 40 minutes drive. Great toy shop in Buxton too and the lighthouses are really worth a visit as was Ocracoke. This is our dream house, wish I could retire here!

Another fantastic week! !

  • 5 of 5

This was either our fourth or fifth time at Pelican Point and it was as much fun as ever. We have a family reunion here each year. My brother and his wife insist on staying in the guest house. They absolutely love the view, porch and quiet. I've tried to take it over without any luck. Kayaking, fishing, crabbing from the dock is awesome. Just be aware that it takes time to walk to the end of the dock because there is do much to stop and look at. One's own private nature preserve. Turtles, fiddler crabs, snakes, crabs, birds, etc. We even had a raccoon come to eat figs nightly off the big fig tree by the guest house. The pool and hot tub are just the greatest. Love the new cover for the hot tub. So much easier to use. My brother got us all into playing bocc ball this year. Quite a few spirited matches. So much fun. Sunsets are beautiful whether one is sitting with a glass of wine on the guesthouse deck or doing kitchen chores. They are visible from anywhere. This is the perfect spot for an Outer Banks vacation. Easy access (no steps to haul your belongings up), one level living. Really good for us older folks who have some issues. Wheelchair accessible also. Quite a few spots to have some "quiet" time if needed. But everything to keep a young active family contented. We will be returning again in 2017. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to spent our vacation in your great house.

wonderful property for our children and grandchildren

  • 5 of 5

The owners have an obvious love of this property, everything was well maintained, and tastefully (and thankfully, no beachy fru-fru ) appointed. It was perfect for us to have the two separate houses. The Roberts, and local management responded quickly to our concerns there. They also cheerfully answered my many questions even before we arrived. There was a bit of a parking problem, as we had 4 vehicles there. The only thing I longed for was an umbrella at the pool to provide shade to sit with grandchildren there. There was a problem with the pool, that required maintenance person there every day, but only one day kids could not use it. Still, we don't hesitate to give this an A+ rating. We will return!

Pelican Point - Great Family Get Away

  • 4 of 5

Pelican Point rental comprised of two single level structures, the house and the guesthouse. We stayed for two weeks. Sleeping, cooking, and dining accommodations were very acceptable for our party of 8 adults and 4 children. The grandkids shared the bunk beds.

The dock was long and we enjoyed the walk from the house to the end as we watched the over cautious fiddler crabs run for cover. Fishing from the dock was good as the kids caught many and varied species, but crabbing, using baited traps, was very good. We had trailered down a small skiff which we launched from a nearby ramp. The dock provided sufficient space to tie up the skiff and two kayaks. Once we were assured of the various water depths in the nearly sound, fishing and cruising with the Skiff was very good.

The pool was great even if a bit over chlorinated.

We liked the yard, the playhouse and the private cemetery was interesting. Parking was adequate but cramped because we had four vehicles and a trailer.

Overall a great family vacation

Hatteras Island could still use better restaurants.-

The property was cleaned and maintained. and we would recommend it to our friends and relatives.

Loved the stay at Pelican Point - a really nice and well-maintained property

  • 4 of 5

We, our family of ten including a 9 and 6 year old, were very pleased with our stay. The property was very clean and most adequately equipped. The kitchen was well equipped with nice Cuisinart pots, and a generous quantity of plates, dishes and silverware. The pool was such an added treat and we greatly appreciated having it as the children and adults benefited more from it than the ocean. A life pun intended! One thing should be added to the kitchen.....picks for the crabs! There were two crackers but no picks. We improvised with the 27 nice size crabs we caught and cooked, but getting the meat out would have been easier with picks. We would most definitely rent Pelican Point again! Thank you to the owners for making such a nice rental property!
