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 Dare County
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.

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.
Had a fabulous stay at the Tipsy Pelican for our fall getaway. It felt like summer and the ocean still felt refreshing. Location to the beach = awesome. Outdoor shower was so nice to have. Beds super comfortable and entire house just perfectly cozy! We hope to come back!
Quaint Yet Lavish Cottage on the Beach
Located just steps away from a convenient beach access, The Tipsy Pelican is a quaint yet lavish cottage. Plenty of space for a small family (or two) and everything you need to enjoy some time away. Our two favorite spots were: the porch for family game nights (cottage comes with many game options - we favored Uno) and in the fully equipped kitchen for our annual seafood boil. Beds were comfy. Cottage was decorated straight out of a renovation magazine. Only drawback (if I had to name one) were the bathrooms... a bit small but sufficient. We look forward to our next getaway to The Tipsy Pelican!
Cozy and cute house near Avon Beach
We loved our stay at the Tipsy Pelican! The house is nicely decorated and cozy, but with space to spread out with the 3 bedrooms, living room area, screened-in porch, and outside front deck porch. We also enjoyed the close proximity to the beach - just 2 houses down to the walkway. Great location to explore the area. Owner very easy to communicate with and responded quickly. We would stay again!
Charming Cottage Close to Beach!
My husband, our one year old son and our dog stayed at the Tipsy Pelican for a long weekend. It was decorated beautifully and we felt right at home during our stay. The house is right by the beach access and we enjoyed many beach walks. The outdoor shower was nice for cleaning up and we enjoyed dinner on the screened in porch. We would recommend this home for an Avon rental!
This is our third time staying at the Tipsy Pelican. The location is an easy, quick walk to the nice wide beach. As always the house was clean and convenient to all that 12 South has to offer. The kitchen is nicely stocked with dishes and utensils and having the outdoor grill is a plus since we do eat in most nights and enjoy the large screened in porch. Love the fact that it is pet friendly too since our dog LOVES the beach as much as we do!
