Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Avon, NC, USA:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
