Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Our Ocean Front home we call 'Absolut Pleasure' is a newer home built in the 'Old Nags Head Style'. There is no additional service fee to book this home! It was designed with first class accommodations in mind. A smoke-free and pet friendly home, it is situated at a slightly higher elevation and closer to the beach than neighboring homes providing exceptional views and privacy.

We keep our calendar updated regularly.

All four bedrooms are large and two of them have private baths. The other two bedrooms and the den / Media Room (which has french doors for privacy and can be used more like a bedroom) share a hall bath.

Every room at Absolut Pleasure has a view of the ocean!

When you first arrive at Absolut Pleasure you will be impressed with its stylistic architecture (A classic beach cottage look, updated and expanded to today's needs) and spacious front porch from which you can enjoy the sunsets over the Pamlico Sound in the evenings.

A covered car port, outside shower, large storage closet and underhouse entry are on the ground level.

Step up to the entry level and you will notice right away the nine foot ceilings, crystal door knobs, and hardwood entry foyer.

There are three bedrooms, a den, and two baths on this level, plus a laundry area. Two of the bedrooms (one master with King, and the other shared bath with King) and the Den / Media Room (which has french doors for privacy and has a flat screen TV and surround sound) on this level are ocean front and open to a wide shaded deck with six person hot tub.

From this level you will have a lovely view of the rolling sand dunes and the Atlantic Ocean. The comfortable third bedroom on this level has two twin beds (shared bath) and has a view of the ocean as well.

On the top level you can enjoy even better views with the dunes, wide beach, and the surf right in front of you. Here there is an open great room with leather seating and kitchen, and a separate half bath.

The gas fireplace on this level comes in handy for chilly (or romantic) evenings. Step out from the great room to the ocean front deck and enjoy yourself basking in the sun and listening to the rolling surf.

Also on this level is a private Ocean Front master bedroom suite (King) with a jetted jacuzzi tub in the bathroom, and an ocean front screened porch accessible from both the bedroom and the sun deck.

Over the past few years we have made significant updates including new paint in warm colors, new hardwood flooring, Pottery Barn and Nautica bedding, new living room furniture and nice artwork throughout.

Hatteras Island is a special place. 70% of the 60 mile long Island is undeveloped United States parkland. As such Hatteras' character is unique, and unlike the rest of the Outer Banks.

It's less developed and retains more of its natural charm and beauty than the northern beaches. Our vacation home is located in Avon, a small community situated at the mid-point on the island just five miles north of the Cape Hatteras light house.

It's a good location to be as all the services you might need on your vacation are available in the community Banking, Large Grocery, Restaurants, etc.

Recreation available nearby includes: Windsurfing at Canadian Hole (best on the east coast), Surf, Pier, and Deep Sea fishing (we are near the gulf stream), and of course miles and miles of beautiful beaches.

Absolut Pleasure is our second home and we try to make it as nice for ourselves and our guests as possible. We think you will like it too! Our property is professionally managed, and when you are ready to book a lease will be sent outlining all the terms of your vacation rental. For 2018 and on linens and towels are included in the rental price for weeks marked "mid", "in", or "prime" seasons, during other times they are available for rental.

About David (Owner)

My name is David, I thought of how much my dog Sandy loves this house so I put a picture of her here, but VRBO said it wasn't allowed so you will have to look at me instead ;)

David (Owner) purchased this house in 2003

Why David (Owner) chose Hatteras Island

While looking all over the outer banks for a place of our own, this house popped up. We drove down and Avon NC had such a great feeling as truly 'getting away' we knew this was it.

What makes this house unique

There are alot of oceanfront homes on the outer banks. What made this home so special for us, was it was newer, but built in the traditional style. Large covered front porch, traditional style decking, cedar outside, wainscotting inside. Lots of character, not just another box on the beach.

Quiet and Beautiful Holiday Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Absolut Pleasure was truly an absolute pleasure. My husband and I spent Christmas and New Years at this beautiful beach home and would do it again. It is great for just two people to use the top floor or those with many guests who can make full use of this big house. It was very cozy with the fireplace in the den yet there was a fresh, open feel with the expansive views of the dunes and ocean. Everything was very clean and well maintained, including the hot tub. It was a perfect location as it was away from the hustle and bustle of more populated portions of the Outer Banks. We enjoyed being there during the off season and didn't feel as though we missed anything from coming in busier months. This was just what we were looking for. I would highly recommend staying here. We look forward to coming again.

Wonderful 10th Anniversary Trip

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home in a perfect location. We went to celebrate out 10th anniv with our 2 small dogs. It was immaculate with a great kitchen that had everything you could need. It seems everything had been thought out and taken care of. The water views were indescribable. We spent hours just watching and listening to the waves. The location was also great, restaurants and shops nearby yet we still felt like we were alone on the water. We haven't stopped talking about it since we got home and definitely plan on returning next year. Thank you for sharing your warm and wonderful home with us.
