As you spend valuable time searching for your ultimate OBX vacation haven, STOP! You almost missed the hidden treasure of Hatteras Island! Embraced by the sparkling waters, engulfed by the sun, is the inviting Village of Salvo. A must if you don't like to be crowded, but still want convenience. The massive dunes offer the ability to find your own secluded spot on the wide, pristine sands. Sun seekers will have plenty of room. Fishermen will have a great opportunity to 'land the big one.' Your kids can play without falling over the other people on the beach! The Sound[Bay] is right there, calling kite & wind surfers from all over the world. The beach is a few minute walk down our street to the dunes. There aren't any homes or hotels on the beach, so don't worry about being elbow to elbow with other sardines, stuck between houses, or under someone's deck! Access to both beach and bay are on our street. The Sound[bay] is right there,and the beach is a 5 to 6 minute walk. When you are on the beach, you will only see sand and water!
As you turn into the driveway, you'll know you've found your vacation dream! The somewhat rare two car garage is where you can safely store your beach gear. Walk up the stone pathway and you're home. Relax in the shade and enjoy a cool drink while you overlook your kids playing in the grassy, fenced yard. Enjoy Village life as it goes by.
Enter mid-level to the tiled foyer, which leads to two of the Queen Master bedrooms. Both have TV's and share a bathroom with double vanity,shower and tub. This roomy bedroom has bay windows that look out to the surf side. The other bright bedroom opens onto a secluded deck and oversized hot tub. Also on this floor, is another bedroom with two twin beds & TV, hall bath w/tub & shower,and laundry room with large washer,dryer,&sink.
Lead the way upstairs and you'll be delighted to find a spacious and open living area, with comfortable leather furniture. There's enough room for the whole family to gather around the large flat screen TV. With the open floor plan, nobody will feel left out. Whether you are preparing a feast,watching a movie,or just enjoying the view,you won't miss a moment of family time. You'll find everything you need in the well appointed kitchen, including upscale appliances,tile floors,and granite countertops. The best part is the view! Gaze out of the large dinning room windows and take in the expansive view of the Sound from one of the highest points in Salvo!!! You can comfortably dine inside,or step out to the 'Command' deck to eat, while you tower over everyone! This deck is very open,yet still secluded because of it's height! There is nothing more romantic than enjoying the sultry evening breeze, as you both watch the incredibly gorgeous sunsets on the Sound. Simply STUNNING! Also on the top floor, is the King Master Suite,with flatscreen TV, walk in,shelved closet, and master bath with another double vanity, separate 'water closet',and an ample,tiled,two person Roman shower. This alluring suite is the perfect place for an evening of respite as the tempting king bed engulfs you in comfort.
But wait...there's MORE! Head all the way down to the lower level to find the fifth bedroom with TV and two twin beds. A perfect place for the au pair,as the game room is right across the hall. Here is another fireplace,stereo,flat screen TV,an overstuffed couch,and plenty of games for the kids. there is even a pool table for you sharks! End your day relaxing in the huge hot tub before drifting off to sleep,so you're ready to discover the next day's treasure trove of activities!

About Franz and Becky Hahn
After many years of staying up and down Hatteras Island, we found the perfect place in Salvo and made it our home! Being a family of beach lovers and fishermen,this location was the perfect fit! Even our dogs can't get enough of it. Finding the right home to purchase was quite a task. After checking out 37 properties, we found Blue Paradise. It was exactly what we had dreamed about. Our Family hopes you will enjoy this home as much as we do! We welcome any suggestions you may have to make your vacation the best experience you've ever had!
Franz and Becky Hahn purchased this House in 2013
Why Franz and Becky Hahn chose Dare County
We chose Blue Paradise because of the location in the charming Village of Salvo. The full time residents seem like they've known you for years. The friendly, laid-back feeling is wonderful, since that seems to be becoming scarce in most vacation spots these days. You'll love your choice in Blue Paradise because of the location. Quiet and relaxing,yet you'll still have convenience. It is a 3000sq.ft home,built in 2008. The furnishings and appliances are new. It's very clean. You'll be very happy with the size and condition of everything!
What makes this House unique
Wind and kite surfers, fishermen, and our guests who have all the beach gear will love the storage space in the oversized two car garage. The grassy,fenced in yard is great for the kids and pups to play in. The lower level game room keeps it relaxing on the floors above. The extremely large, secluded hot tub is relaxing and sparkling. The captivating views are stunning!

Beautiful sunsets and treasured filled beaches.
We had a wonderful time at Blue Paradise! The pictures truly do not show the beauty of this property. We enjoyed the pool table, gathering upstairs to enjoy some board games and tea on the deck overlooking the sound. A short walk to the ocean where many treasures can be found. I found a seahorse!! My son fished the entire vacation and caught a puppy drum, clear nose skate, and a baby sand shark. So much fun! Franz was an exceptional host and was available with any questions. He truly want above and beyond. In packing for your stay at Blue Pardise bring towels, spices, condiments, trash bags, extra toilet paper, and extra linens. Salvo is a perfect place far away from the hustle and bustle. It’s a place that provides time for reflection and beach therapy. We fell in love with the outer banks and this property. We will be back.
Beautful House! Soggy Week!
The home is lovely and is located about 1/4 mile from ocean beach and about 200 yards from sound side that had no beach due to flooding. The house was clean but make sure you bring your own extra toilet tissue, paper toweling, trash can liners, dishwasher soap, hand soap at kitchen sink, and all spices that you may use. Plenty of pots and pans, dishes, utensils. Kitchen is on top level and if you have a lot to carry can be a challenge.
Watch out for falling debris (some from landscaper next door throwing cut limbs onto property) in front yard that may damage fence and possibly create an escape route for your pet. Our son stepped on a nail from fence board on the ground.
All bedrooms were tastefully decorated and of good size.
The dryer stopped working on day 5 and could not be repaired because of Hurricane Juaquin moving into area. They seem to not do repairs under weather threats since they have to come from the mainland.
We left a day early because Orcacoke was under a mandatory evacuation and locals said "we're next".
We would absolutely come back but definitely not at the end of September during hurricane season!
The house is a lot better than what the picture are showing ! We had a great week in Blue Paradise. The location is perfect. 5 min Walk from the beach. We would go back anytime !
Thank You Franz !
Blue Paradise Indeed!
We very much enjoyed our week here. Mr. Hahn, the owner, was a delight to work with and readily answered any questions we had. We shared the home with friends and their two daughters. The house very comfortably accommodated the nine people in our party, ages 5 thru 52. It was clean and well furnished. There was everything we needed. The views were amazing from the back top deck. Master suite and bath were fabulous! We all really enjoyed the hot tub and game room. We played pool and card games when we weren't enjoying the beautiful beaches. Salvo is a perfect vacation destination! If you aren't into high rises and souvenir shops blocking your view of the natural beauty that is the OBX, then this is the house for you. The home was a three minute walk from The Blue Whale general store, which had everything we needed throughout the week and extremely friendly staff! We would definitely stay here again and would recommend this home to anyone looking to vacation in the Outer Banks.
Beautiful home, quiet area. Beach is close & so are groceries, fish markets, art gallery. Great home for kicking back, grilling, chilling out.
Fishing-Anything you would need is a block away, at The Fishin' Hole. Beach items[boogie boards,beach chairs,etc]-There are many rental shops that can usually deliver anything you would need. It's a short drive to Hatteras and Bodie Islands. Avon and Rodanthe Piers. The Graveyard of the Atlantic. Pea Island Natl. Wildlife Preserve. The most appealing and consistent winds for wind and kite surfers on the East Coast. The Canadian Hole and Pamlico Sound call to wind seekers from around the world! Quite a number of various sandwich and pizza shops that deliver. Convenience stores, gas stations, and a terrific ice cream shop. Great bistro food can be found at The Froggy Dog down Hwy.12 a bit. You can find GREAT burgers,etc. at The Down-Under Bar and Stingray's Bar,which are 2 mins. up Hwy.12. If you take a drive up to Kitty Hawk, you will find the best kept dining secret in the Outer Banks at the Colington Café. Unbelievably outstanding dinners! Extremely romantic! And very well priced. Tell the owners,Carlin and Ken that Franz and Becky sent you! [We also thank our 'frequent flyers' with a fabulous dinner here]
