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!

Super location: Great ocean view/easy beach access

  • 5 of 5

Sailfish is in a wonderful location in Avon. It has great access (just minutes) to the beach which made it super easy to take our dog to the beach. It is a lovely, spacious, clean, and comfortable house. The upstairs has a kitchen, dining area, bathroom and bedroom as well as an open concept living area with sliding doors which lead out onto the deck for an amazing ocean view. The downstairs has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a laundry room. It is a fantastic place to stay if you are vacationing in the Outer Banks. Sailfish is a great value. It is also a short drive to the grocery store, restaurants, and the lighthouse station. Our experience was wonderful. Betty was available if we needed anything. Thanks so much for making our vacation so enjoyable.

My family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for a long weekend & had an absolute blast ! The house is very nice! We felt like we were at home ! The 5 bedrooms held everyone perfectly! This was a great experience for my family and my son & my grandmas first time at the beach , they walk way was very nice! It was easier for my grandma (84y/o) to get to the beach.. I love that the beach wasn't crowded at all ! This was probably my favorite beach ! The ice cream shop across the Main Street was perfect ! We truly enjoyed our time there! The house was very clean & my family loved the "rocking chair" in the living room! Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your home! We've already started planning another family vacation!

Warm and inviting house in an amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fantastic week staying at Sailfish. Though we hadn't visited since 2014 the house hadn't lost its charm, and was an excellent base for a week of sun and activities in Avon. Our family loves Sailfish and can't wait to start planning our next vacation there.

Sun. Surf. Sand....... Steps Away

  • 5 of 5

Home was very welcoming after a long drive and immediately felt comfortable. Nice open floor plan upstairs made it feel extra spacious. Enjoyed the nice sea breeze from three seperate sliding doors..... And lets not forget the gorgeous ocean view! Super easy beach access came in handy with little ones...... Look forward to another visit!

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 artists..you 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.
