About Jeff Lewis

This property is owned by the Lewis family from New Jersey. The Lewises have loved the Outer Banks for many years and enjoy hosting families from all over the world to their cottage.

Jeff Lewis purchased this cottage in 1997

Why Jeff Lewis chose Hatteras Island

The close access to the beach and the view from the upper deck sold us! It is truly a wonderful family retreat and also is great for fishermen, birdwatchers, surfers, kite surfers, and beach babies in the fall!

What makes this cottage unique

The unique benefit of this house is that it offers a family an opportunity to enjoy beach living at a reasonable cost. We also allow your beloved dogs if they are well behaved!

Great location, wonderful vacation!

  • 4 of 5

The location is the best part about the vacation home, and the fact that it was very clean overall despite a few dust bunnies here and there. The only problem we had was that the decor and the house in general needs some major updating. But that was a minor problem really for the price we paid since it is a 30 second walk to the beach access and it has lovely views from the porch. Just watch your feet on the porch since it could also use some updating. All said, we had a great vacation at Sailfish!

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

This was our third summer vacation in the Outer Banks and the best beach house of all. We had never encountered such a well equipped kitchen . It had everything we needed - even a slow cooker. I didn't expect that and had brought my own. The house was very clean, with plenty of space, lots of light and a lovely wrap around deck with a view of the ocean. We appreciated the outdoor shower to keep sand out of the house and also the boogie boards there. The location is very close to the grocery store too. We ended up leaving a bit early due to the incoming hurricane, but definitely want to return!

This was our second stay at this cottage and we enjoyed it. The house fit 8 of us comfortably (although with that many of us, more glasses and silverware would be a useful addition) A nice clean property with the basics, including good wifi, good TV service and GREAT views and beach access. We like the location and this place has all we need for a family vacation. The owners are very nice and we plan to come back next year!

Fantastic location with great beach access!

  • 5 of 5

This house is a great value for the money! We thoroughly enjoyed out stay at Sailfish and hope to return every year. We especially liked the ocean view and short walk to the beautiful Avon beach. We were also close to shopping and the best restaurants in Avon. It was a spur of the moment trip and Betty very graciously made it possible for us. We found the house to be neat and clean and the owners were very responsive to our questions. Rent Sailfish and you won't be disappointed!

Sailfish in Avon is located a stone's throw from the beach access behind beautiful huge dunes. The pristine beach is uncrowded and invites you to sunbathe, surf, body board, surf fish, and look for shells to your heart content. It is so convenient if you have lots of beach gear, toys, fishing poles, etc. The large deck facing the ocean gives you a wonderful area to read and sunbathe! All you have to do is relax and enjoy! Avon boasts many terrific restaurants, from coffee shops and family restaurants to fine dining.The Avon Pier is a very popular place where you can fish and watch the locals surf and body board. The only chain grocery store for the whole island is also located in Avon. Spa Koru in Avon features a workout gym, sauna, a beauty shop, massages, yoga and other classes and services to truly spoil yourself and yours! Guys can go deep sea fishing and their gals can spend the day at the spa.

Gals can also go to the many fine gift shops and galleries for shopping....Studio 12 features local and NC can shop for art whether you are looking for paintings, pottery, photography, jewelry, and other unique items. Adults and children both will enjoy painting pottery, making mosaics, or glass fusion jewelry.There are also bead making shops in Avon. Lots of things to do to keep the kiddies and teenagers occupied on a rainy day or when they have had too much beach time!

The Cape Hatteras Lighthouse is located 8 miles south of Avon. It is the tallest and most famous lighthouse in America and features a gift shop. There are 2 quality museums on the island which you can browse and visit their gift shops The Native American Museum has a tremendous collection of pottery, beading, and artifacts from Native Americans from all over North America. The Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum provides an eye opening litany of the ships which have wrecked in the treacherous Diamond Shoals waters.

Okracoke Island, home to Blackbeard, the infamous pirate, is just a free ferry ride away from Hatteras Island. It is a fun day trip where you can enjoy beautiful beaches, perhaps a wild pony sighting, gourmet restaurants, and lovely gift shops.

Birdwatching at Pea Island is spectacular, especially in the fall and winter months. Migratory snow geese arrive in the thousands in the early winter.
