About The Owner

We love spending time at the ocean and have been coming to the Outer Banks since we were married 43 years ago. Our children have been coming for years and are now bringing our grandchildren. It is truly is a great time to get close to family or friends for a vacation to remember, with plenty of space to spread out and enjoy the OBX lifestyle.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Hatteras Island

We love the neighborhood, it's quiet and safe for biking or just walking around. The ocean sounds are so relaxing and star filled nights are a sight to behold.

What makes this house unique

We love to walk the beach in the early morning searching for shells. The fishing is great from the beach, or on the sound or in the ocean. Surfing, or using a boogie board is a great way to catch that next wave. Bike rentals are nearby for even more exercise around the area. A must visit is a trip to Hatteras Lighthouse and Ocracoke Island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our ninth year coming to the Outer Banks for Thanksgiving and the second time in this house, we all had a great time. If the fishermen and girl had only caught one fish it would have been a perfect week-warm temps, sparkling seas and crystal blue skies. The kids played in the water insisting that it wasn't to cold in spite of their bright pink legs and numb toes. Thank you for sharing your home-we return to Greensboro and Raleigh refreshed and well rested.

Best Getaway Ever

  • 5 of 5

Upon first arrival you drive up to a house tucked in the back corners of Salvo all while thinking "Wow, this home literally lives up to its name". You drive up the driveway to a tall, gorgeous teal home with faded wooden decks overlooking the driveway. Right away I immediately felt relaxed and cozy. As you enter the house you're just amazed by how well the space is used. Every floor has a speaker system that was very easy to set up, just make sure you bring and analog aux cord adapter to fit the female end of the stereo. We spent a lot of time on the top deck as well as the five minute walk to the beach. There is an ice cream shop right down the road which was visited every night, because, who doesn't love ice cream? The beach was also gorgeous and very clean. We played pool on the first floor after the long days at the beach and sat outside till the sun set every single night. Definitely would book again.

"Seaclusion is a must"

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time here at Seaclusion. Everything was exactly the way it was described. The hosts were always within reach incase we needed help figuring things out and were very accommodating to our large group size. The location of the house was absolutely amazing especially with the extremely short walk to the beach. This allowed our group to go as we please without needing to hop in a car and drive back and forth to a beach all day long. I would definitely stay here again and recommend anyone looking at this property to do the same!

Overall experience was everything we hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

The house truly fit our needs and then some. We were 4 couples on motorcycles visiting the outer banks for the first time. The house was very easy to get to and the ride there was absolutely beautiful.

Being able to wake up and walk out the door right to the beach was so nice. Morning walks on the beach were so beautiful. Words cannot do this justice. Something that you just have to experience yourself.

The owner was so accommodating. Knowing we were coming in on motorcycles, and the threat of rain, she even called to make sure we made it safely.

The only problem was that we didn't have enough time to do everything that we wanted to do. We would really love to go back.

Seaclusion could not have been better for a getaway with some of our family. This property is spacious and very well kept. Great location makes it easy to visit Nags Head to the north and Ocracoke Island to the south. We especially liked having a bedroom for us by the kitchen upstairs, while everyone else used the middle level bedrooms. The cargo elevator was a huge plus, and it was wonderful being right by the beach. Our grandchildren kept asking if we could just live there all the time!

Owner's Response: Glad the family vacation was a success and Seaclusion provided a comfortable place for you to all come together. Hope you'll return if future visits to the Outer Banks are in your plans. Thanks again for your business and a great review.

Another Great Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

After all these years of enjoying Seaclusion at Thanksgiving time it seems like home to us as we gathered around the dinner table. Fishing was remarkably good this year, so we had our plenty of turkey and fish to eat. Only disappointment was that we did not see a whale, as we did last year. My family and I are already looking forward to next year at your great house.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great stay at Seaclusion and the weather cleared up for the rest of your vacation. Sorry the whales didn't show during your stay, it's rare to see them so close. Look forward to having you back again in 2016.

Outstanding rental and location! This house has everything you need for a great fishing vacation. It's close to the beach and also close to the on-ramp to drive on the beach. Kitchen is fully socked with all the pots, pans and utensils you'll need. Everything is clean and modern. Just a great place!

Car: necessary

Cape Hatteras lighthouse a short 45 minute drive, and a must is the ferry over to Ocracoke Island. The aquarium, Lost Colony play and a trip to Manteo are fun day trips. Minature golf, and golf courses available in Nags Head. Great restaurants abound throughout the area for that special meal out.
