Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 7

"Red Shark Shack" is our interpretation of what a beach cottage should be. Filled with an eclectic mix of modern and antique furnishings and original artwork, it is at once welcoming and cheerful. Built in 1966, but completely updated and renovated in 2007, we converted the covered porch into the kitchen and dining rooms, opened the ceiling in the living room (added a flat-screen TV and gas-fired woodstove), added a flexible bathroom with whirlpool tub, and a deck with outside shower. Two bedrooms and a desk area complete the floorplan. There are truly too many upgrades to list. We have added 2 Bikes to the property so you may enjoy a wonderful ride to the Beach or a stroll through the neighborhood...

Our home is "featured in 's 2009 house tour."

CATV, DVD. Other amenities include 2 adult bikes, books, picnic table, Jenn-Aire downdraft stove, pinball machine, deeded parking at Avalon Beach Access, board games, and DVD library. 400 yards to the beach. Milepost 5.5

Reviewer Comments:

The Red Shark Shack delighted our family of five. It's got a beachy decor and most of the rooms looked freshly is large enough to accommodate everyone nicely.The kitchen was well-equipped and welcoming. We cooked great seafood dinners there and enjoyed playing games on the large, cafe height table.There was an amazing collection of magazines, books and surfboards. The kids loved the backyard especially the hammock and outdoor shower. This was our first trip to the Outer Banks and the house is an easy walk to Avalon Pier or the sound.The neighbors were friendly and recommended local restaurants and attractions.The fireworks display on the pier was impressive.The deeded parking spot next to the pier/beach is a major Perk! We visited two lighthouses, the Lost Colony and we were pleased with the seafood at The Black Pelican, Chili Peppers and Awful Arthurs.We plan on returning.The town is laid back, Beach Realty is professional and the house is perfect.

Reviewer Comments:

House is clean, comfortable beds and short drive to the pier for beach access. The only thing that made our stay difficult is the doors. Keep in mind our son will elope. When booking this house I didn't realize there weren't dead bolts on the doors when we booked. Lever handles that will unlock when opened from the inside. This is the only thing we didn't like. We keep our eyes on him so we were able to intervene quickly (except the one time he decided to strip down and get into the outdoor shower!) when he tried to make a run for it.

Reviewer Comments:

Reservation, and check in/out were issue free. Cute house, in a convenient location. Lots of potential in the property, but no issue was intolerable. The layout was nice, and if a little time was spent finessing the backyard (speakers hooked up, fire pit, etc.), it would've been better. Saw a few bugs in the kitchen, but don't think it can be helped. Overall quite pleased with our experience.

Reviewer Comments:

Overall, we had a wonderful stay at the Red Shark Shack. When walking in the front door, it was exactly as pictured online. Very beautifully decorated! It was clean, except for the white couch, which probably couldn't be helped. Had all the amenities anyone could ask for. Baked and cooked a few days and ate out the rest. Had a few encounters with little spiders and ants but figured that was normal for the climate. There was a hole in one of the boards on the front deck that our granddaughter's leg went through but no injury. We spent sometime everyday at the beach, enjoying the waves, collecting shells and just chillin out. Weather was in the 80's everyday with no rain; could not have asked for anything better. The back yard needed some sprucing up but we didn't spend much time there.

Reviewer Comments:

This house was the perfect size for myself, husband and two kids. It was adorable and the kids loved looking at all the decor. My only complaint was that the house could have been cleaner. There were eggs just thrown in the backyard (maybe from the previous renter?) The white couch was really filthy as well as the daybed in the kitchen. We were there the second week in august so I'm sure after a summer of rentals it was probably cleaner in the beginning of the season. It was cute though and the perfect size and we loved the decor.

Reviewer Comments:

I enjoyed the house and location. The beds were rock hard. I slept on the bed the beds were Rock hard. I slept on the bed twice. The rest of the time I slept on the sofa which was quite comfy. The TV didn't work nor did the Syria the entire time that I was there. Medium kitchen head wood roaches in it. That's an easy fix. If I stay there next year it'll be different time of year probably in September.
