5 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom, Sleeps 18, Wide Decks For Relaxing Evenings, Heated Pool
We have come to know 'Island Time' with our family and friends over the years and when we saw 'Barefoot Adventures' we knew it was the house for us! We plan on enjoying many vacations here as we enjoy the beauty of this place and we invite you to do the same. We have partnered with a premier service company so we know you'll always find a clean, well maintained home. If you've stayed here before look for improvements in 2013 as we begin our own...Barefoot Adventure!
Barefootadventruresobx purchased this House in 2012
Why Barefootadventruresobx chose Salvo
We chose this place because of the quiet area, great views, easy beach access and the great interior layout. Not to mention the very wide decks and ground level heated pool! There's nothing like sitting in the steamy hot tub listening to the sound of the ocean. You can enjoy a starry night with family and friends or retreat to the game room for a fun filled night of pool with the kids.
What makes this House unique
At Barefoot Adventures you are there...just over the dune from the ocean. Away from the crowded areas you'll love the quiet area, with a long private drive it's like you have your own private beach! Kids love this area, great for long bike rides!

Family Beach Vacation
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Barefoot Adventures. We traveled with a group of 13 - from 3 to 82. The house met all of our needs and was able to sleep everyone comfortably, allowed us to eat as a family and gave us space to relax. We had a couple communications with the owner who was very responsive to all of our inquiries.
Great location and the pool was wonderful. My family had a great time.
The rental process was very easy and the house was as described. Plenty of room for my whole family and had everything needed in the kitchen, except a liquid measuring cup. The location is great and everything was very quiet. Watch the cactus when walking to the beach and be prepared for a workout on the stairs. Great place to take a family vacation!
We had a great time at this beach front property. Great views, great layout of the house for several families, and great location. Host has extremely responsive to any and all questions.
Home needs TLC!
I have stayed in several properties over the years and have always enjoyed time spent in each one. This year I was anxious to bring my fiancee to one of my favorite vacation spots and share his first time in OBX. We were very disappointed to find the furnishings, appliances and grounds of this home to be in poor condition. To list a few examples;
*Trash all around the property (collects around back area and old rusted bikes in front area). Trash can wheels were broken. Was left full from prior visitor.
* Screens missing from most windows and doors therefore, hard to leave open to enjoy fresh air.
*3rd floor sliding door extremely hard to open/close.
*All appliances worked fine but dated, rusty, dented or scratched. *Old under cabinet light fixtures unused, exposed and rusted.
*Window sills water damaged and molded.
*Water damage in ceiling and walls.
*Air vent at front entry very dirty, black and looks moldy
*Furniture threadbare - stuffing coming out of chairs.
*Lamp (or outlet) in bedroom we stayed didn't work.
*Storage area, outdoor shower all dirty and need thorough cleaning
*Very small and dated t.v.s - remotes didn't work (we purchased batteries for two so we could use). No books, videos, games offered for visitors (as other homes have always provided).
*And, worst feature - beds were EXTREMELY hard. Made for difficult nights sleep.
Cleaning crew did good job despite the age and condition of the furnishings.
I feel you should be honest with potential visitors to ensure they don't have the same expectations that we did, only to be disappointed.
To alert you as well - upon leaving we noticed water dripping from roof near outdoor shower area from what appears to be coming from the middle level bathroom area. May be water pipe leak. We suggest you have this serviced asap.
I waited to make sure all issues mentioned are fixed before responding. Wish you had called me or emailed me even once. I am very responsive and make sure all guests leave happy. There are two trash cans for the house. Yes one had wheels broken, we just added one more trash can. Trash cans left full prior to your stay is something the county does twice a week. They did come and pick it up during your stay.
We are not replacing any more screens on the windows. Why? Guests tend to leave the windows open, with the AC's running. Plus we have had water damage due to that. We did have a leak in the window and hoping it's now fixed. In a home this large, sometimes it becomes a challenge to figure out why the leak is. We do not have any mold any where.
We just ordered a batch of books and games. This is the end of the season. We normally have to restock the kitchen twice, once in February and once in July post season. TVs are new and sized based on the size of the rooms.
We also just finished a complete overhaul on furnishings that was scheduled for end of this year. New photos to follow. New lamps, new rugs, new artwork.
You paid $1200 for 7 days for a million dollar home, that sleeps 19. I think this review is a bit harsh. This house is certainly not shabby. You paid $9 per person per day to stay on a beachfront home. This includes a pool and a hot tub.
Above all had you called me we would have ensured you left happy.
Fantastic House & Owner
This is a complete package. The house is great and the owner is great to work with. The house is actually better than described with plenty of room for lots of guests. Everything worked perfectly. The kitchen has everything you need. The keyless entry makes coming & going very easy as you don't have to worry about who has the keys. The pool table entertained our younger crowd while the hot tub was great for the parents and the young children couldn't wait to hit the beach. The owner was very reponsive to everything (we decided to stay an extra night) and answered phone calls and e mails extremely quickly. I would not hesitate to recomend this home or owner to anyone.
Wonderful vacation home
We had a great stay at the house. It was perfect for our extended family group of 11. The home was just as described and very comfortable. We had one issue with the hot tub and it was fixed immediately after a quick call to the property management company. We would definitely recommend this house to others and are thinking of booking again next year!
So much to see and do and all within a few miles! Or if you like to explore you'll want to check out Ocracoke Island just to the south of us. World renowned surf fishing (NC license is required) or the Rodanthe Fishing Pier are only a couple of miles away (no license required for pier fishing). How about charter fishing from Oregon or Hatteras Inlet? If water sports are your passion you're in the right place, Hatteras Island is a premier destination! You can't miss a climb to the top of the famous Hatteras Lighthouse a few miles south in the quaint village of Buxton. Still looking for more? How about horseback riding, surfing, nature trails, kayaking and the list goes on! You always have a personal concierge standing by with our property service company, Shore Details. Relax in the evening with a walk on the beach and a dinner prepared poolside on the charcoal grill. End your Hatteras day with quiet time on the expansive decks looking out over the moonlit ocean, and finally take a long walk on the quiet beach and experience breathtaking views of the night sky! Sounds too good to be true? Not on Hatteras Island, not at Barefoot Adventures. Let us share with you what made us fall in love with the hidden treasure! Don't forget your camera...you'll want to capture every moment as you and your family make memories that last a lifetime!
