About Joy DeMeglio
We purchased the Tipsy Pelican in June 2013 and are so excited to share our vacation home with you. We have big plans for our little house and can't wait to have it all done. For quite a few years we have searched for the perfect home and town to finally buy. Avon provided the best location and the Tipsy Pelican is a house we felt instantly comfortable with.
Joy DeMeglio purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Joy DeMeglio chose Avon
The Tipsy Pelican is located on the perfect street, the kids have been known to ride their scooters up and down the lane into the cul-de-sac. The most beautiful beach is just a few feet away which makes it easy to go back and forth to the house if you need something. Nothing beats Dairy Queen ice cream after a long day at the beach. Walk to the end of the street you will find the only one in Avon! What a perfect way to end the night!
What makes this Cottage unique
Our home is not pretentious, big or extravagant. We are trying to make it the most relaxing cottage you've ever stayed in and hopefully want to come back to. This home is a reflection of our family's attitude, that life should be about family and the time spent with them.

DELIGHTFUL Cottage By the Sea
This is the cutest 'home away from home' we have ever experienced! We were personally welcomed by a chalkboard as we entered the cottage! How special is that? :-) The thoughtful details in every room were a special touch, for sure. The 'needs' of the vacationer were thought of before they even knew they needed it! :-) The house is beautifully decorated, bright and airy! The bonus of the screened porch which leads to the open deck is great for dogs or kids to have extra space to roam when not at the beach.
The kitchen is WELL stocked, and there is a huge refrigerator which is so nice. Not some small one that won't fit all your goodies. The cottage is just a short distance from the public access to the beach, which is very convenient.
You can certainly tell a lot of love went into making this cottage a 'home away from home' and we appreciate it! WE can't wait to go back!
You actually made me miss my own cottage with you kind words! I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. I hope the Tipsy Pelican can be a part of your memories for years to come.
This is our second time at the Tipsy Pelican. Our family loves this house and Joy! She is a wonderful owner to work with.
We LOVED our stay at the Tipsy Pelican!!
We had a very nice stay at the Tipsy Pelican! The weather was not so nice, which forced us to stay inside for several days but we enjoyed everything the house had to offer. The kitchen was very well stocked, there were plenty of games and movies available, WiFi and cable. The AC worked well and we loved the ceiling fans in each room. The walk to the beach access was a short one, but the beaches were huge! We took advantage of a dry evening and dodged the standing water to walk to the Dairy Queen, which the kids loved! The screened porch definitely came in handy with all the rain. The kids absolute favorite thing were the swings underneath! The best part is there was one for each of them so no fighting or taking turns! The weather definitely didn’t cooperate for us to enjoy much beach time but we were highly satisfied with the house and loved our time at the Tipsy Pelican!
We had the best time! The cottage was so beachy and comfortable.
We enjoyed The Tipsy Pelican. The new steps and deck were great. The decor was very tasteful and the furnishings were comfortable.
The beach access is a short and easy walk for us and our dogs.
We really hope to stay here again next summer.
Charming Beach Cottage
You know when you walk into a home and just say "ahhhhh"? That is how my family felt when we walked into The Tipsy Pelican. You will not find a more charming cottage on the Outer Banks! The homeowners have thought of every detail in making this the perfect vacation destination. Fully stocked kitchen, cozy cottage vibe, and a great outdoor shower. We enjoyed eating dinner on the HUGE screened porch every night and enjoyed our coffee on the deck every morning. We had a great week and hope to visit OBX and The Tipsy Pelican again!
Great accommodations right at the beach
The Tipsy Pelican was a great place for a weekend getaway. We enjoyed the new deck, porch, and immediate access to the beach.
