About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

3 Story Oceanside House Available for your perfect Outer Banks Vacation.

This Salvo property has been a home and place for friends and renters to enjoy since 2005. A saltbox design with exposed beams and vaulted ceilings throughout, the home features new hardwood flooring and a tastefully decorated interior. Large sliding glass doors and windows provide plenty of natural light and ventilation: when open, they allow the refreshing ocean air and uniquely dramatic light of the Outer Banks to permeate the house. Previous visitors to the property say this aspect, coupled with the home’s airy design, create an energy that is both relaxing and inspiring. The freshness is partly due to the hardwood flooring which does not absorb odors like a carpeted floor rental.

Located in the oceanside community of 'Hatteras Colony,” the residence is on a cul-de-sac with no through traffic. The quiet neighborhood location is perfect for walking, biking, and bird watching, and the substantial backyard is the ideal place to throw a frisbee, play some ball, or catch fireflies. Three elevated decks and a screened-in porch invite après-beach conversation and cocktails, a quiet morning with a new book, or an evening barbeque. The home also boasts modest ocean views from its upper level. Deeded access to both the beach and sound makes getting to the water easy; as does the nearby boat ramp, access to which is also included in the rental. So too is an on-site storage locker, perfect for securing outdoor and sporting gear.

Inside, you’ll find common rooms appointed with leather furniture and traditional Hatteras décor, including goods made by local artisans. The living room entertainment center has a nice pair of Kilpsch KG-4 speakers and a NAD amplifier with direct connection available to your devices via stereo mini plug or the included Apple TV.

Simple and bright, the bedrooms feature organic cotton sheets and plush comforters for those spring or fall nights when you need extra warmth. Our spacious kitchen is stocked with china and cookware perfect for making a casual breakfast, weekend brunch or candlelit dinner. I've included Swiss Diamond and Cuisinart pans and a new propane Weber grill as of 2017. A spiral staircase leads guests to the loft.

The bedrooms are simply and tastefully outfitted with new furniture as of 2017. The loft and northern first floor bedroom both have bedside table lamps with usb outlets for easy charging. The north first floor bedroom also has a smart TV connected to Wifi with access to Netflix and other common online viewing resources.

Ensuring a memorable and fun-filled stay is of the utmost importance to us. And so included in your rental rate is also a personal concierge service designed to help you plan and get the most out of your vacation. For an additional fee, we can also arrange grocery delivery or items such as a rollaway bed or sea kayaks, surfboards, paddleboards or other sporting related items.

We know you’ll be delighted with the accommodations and location, and we look forward to making your stay in the Outer Banks exceptional.

*** This property is available for long term rental late October through mid-May

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: My name is Colin Gowland. I was born in Canada and spent most of my life there, traveling for sports interests when I could. In 2002, I moved to the Outer Banks to pursue a career in kiteboarding. In 2005 I purchased the house and now reside in both Mexico and the USA, where I run a sailboat racing clinic center. I enjoy sailing as well as most watersports; I also love music-- both playing and listening. I'm very fond of the OBX and return whenever I can. The landscape there brings me a lot of peace and seemingly, the more I look, the more I find. This is a magical spot: one of my absolute favorites, and I sincerely hope you enjoy your time there. It's truly priceless!

Why the Owner Chose Salvo, NC, USA:
This home was initially my residence. We chose the Outer Banks because of its long, pleasant seasons and its unique geography: the combination of the Atlantic Ocean and Pamlico Sound create seemingly unlimited opportunities for recreation. I enjoyed kiteboarding, surfing, windsurfing, beach walking, sunsets, sunrises, friends, laughs, biking, cocktails, music, reading and more.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Low traffic, safe neighborhood for walking and biking, beach and sound access, screened-in porch, multiple decks, kiteboarding, surfing, windsurfing, sailing, sports equipment storage, ice cream, cocktails, fishing, sunsets, sunrises, running, laughing, eating, being merry, suntans, sunburns, lemonade, sea shells, seashores, lighthouses, life saving station history, reading, relaxing, writing, sleeping, loving.
