A treehouse on Hatteras Island. License to Chill takes advantage of it's unique location and lets you experience the beach from every room. The house has 3 bedrooms and is split into two sides connected by outdoor decks. The west side of the house includes main living area, kitchen, master bedroom and bath. The west side faces the beach and includes 3 sliding glass doors that open to ocean breezes. The East side of the house is connected to the west side by first and second floor decks and includes another master bedroom and bath and twin bedroom upstairs. The house was redecorated and updated in 2012 to include new bedroom furniture, couches, and flat screen T.V.s. The beach is a directly across the street and beach access is less than 100 yards away left or right. The views from the house are enhanced by double lots across the street, rather than houses, dunes and ocean are what you see. A brand new 6 person hottub was purchased in 2012 and moved onto the pool deck so you can soak under the stars. Previous guests rank the pool and large pool deck as the best amenity of the house hands down. This is your chance to experience Hatteras Island as it was meant to be, outdoor living with modern conveniences.

About Michael Tomasini
We first experienced the Outer Banks when traveling for business in 2007 and quickly found ourselves returning to Hatteras Island whenever we got the chance. Hatteras Island really seemed to the perfect place to get away from it all and after traveling extensively we knew we had found a place we would always choose to go over any other.
Michael Tomasini purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Michael Tomasini chose Salvo
After looking at many properties on Hatteras Island we found ourselves ranking the view and character of a place over the number of bedrooms and amenities. License to Chill provides us with a vacation feel because of it's unique character and proximity to the beach.
What makes this Cottage unique
The third floor roof deck is great place for cocktail hour, coffee or stargazing. The pool deck is the perfect way to extend your beach day.

My husband and I stayed here with our daughters, 6, 14, and 16. It was perfect because the kids could have their own side space on one side of the house and my husband and I stayed in the bedroom on the main half. Perfect location in OBX, close enough to everything you need, but very quiet. Pool made a great alternative to the beach! Definitely recommend!
Excellent family vacation house. Perfect for a family with teens.
Wonderful place for a family to relax and enjoy the beach! The pool is terrific and you can hear and see the ocean from the house. We will come back here!
Cute and quaint.
House was very unique. Upon arrival very clean and welcoming. It was a little smaller than we imagined. I am glad more people didn’t come down. Two teenage boys and 2 adults was tight. Air conditioner in upstairs master was still hot. Pool was great and refreshing. All in all I would stay here again despite how cramped we were because we still had fun and it was really close to ocean. And the owner was very nice and helpful and answered any questions I had.
Great time at a unique house
Our family really enjoyed this unique house with an awesome pool and hot tub. Not far from the beach either! The kids really enjoyed their room with the treehouse hatch. The separate wings were nice for privacy. OBX never disappoints.
A great place!
We loved our week at License to Chill. The house is fun and close to the beach. The pool is much bigger than it appears in photos. The hot tub was an added bonus. We enjoyed Salvo and it was much quieter than Kitty Hawk and all the busy towns up north. I hope to go back soon.
Relaxing getaway with all the amenities!
My husband and I stayed here for a week and loved it! There is a fully equipped kitchen, plenty of extras you might have forgotten, laundry machines, towels/linens, and more. The home owners really make it feel like a home away from home and make sure you have everything you need. The house has a quirky split layout and lots of natural light. It was a very close walk to the beach just across the street and a nice view of the ocean from the top deck. The beach wasn't very crowded and was very clean. We would definitely recommend staying here!
