Launch 41 – Enjoy our professional video featuring stunning interior and exterior views and vistas by clicking the video link embedded in each picture.

This stunning waterfront home has unobstructed views of the Pamlico sound and is the ideal spot for enjoying some of the most spectacular, unobstructed waterfront sunsets in the world. This four-level home (a custom elevator provides quick and easy access to each floor) is unlike any other in the area, and is poised to ensure that your family getaway is a rousing success. Launch 41 comes complete with every amenity you would expect from one of Hatteras Island’s premier properties. High-end fixtures, top-quality furniture, classy flatware (our knives are actually sharp!), and a sophisticated décor set this home apart from the rest of the rentals on the island. For in-house entertainment, two 60” smart high-definition televisions with surround sound are connected to DIRECTV and link to services such as Netflix, YouTube, and Hulu. Four of the eight TVs in the house have DVRs so you’ll never miss anything while you’re out enjoying all of the unique activities that the island has to offer!

Outside, an expansive deck with a hammock and plenty of comfortable furniture surrounds the large pool. Need a break from the sun? That won’t be a problem! There is a large covered area of the deck that provides plenty of shade and allows guests of all ages to enjoy the spectacular views of Pamlico Sound all day long. Splash in the pool or simply kick back, relax, and enjoy the soft breeze off the water.

No home of this stature would be complete without a hot tub. Launch 41’s Caldera Vanto spa features powerful jets with two motors, a waterfall, and LED lights. You can also enjoy the 60" HDTV in the media room while in the hot tub.

On the second level of the house, guests can enjoy the large recreational area that has a pool table, 40” HDTV, stereo system with 10 speakers, bar, full-size refrigerator, microwave, and dishwasher.

Each of Launch 41’s five bedrooms comes with its own private tiled bathroom complete with gorgeous glass enclosure, flat screen HDTV connected to DIRECTV, and private deck with stunning views.

In order to make sure you’re in good hands during your vacation, we have partnered with the premier property services team at Shore Details. They will ensure that Launch 41 is clean and prepared to the highest standards. You’ll arrive to a spotless house with your beds made so you can begin your vacation right away! There will also be a few basic amenities waiting to help you get started. If you wish, Shore Details can also stock the kitchen with groceries or have a deli platter waiting for your arrival. Launch 41 is also a Shore Details Concierge Home. This service provides you with your own personal concierge, ready to help with all of your vacation planning, at no charge to you! It’s just our way of saying “thank you” for choosing Launch 41!

Located in the ultimate location for water sports enthusiasts, and perfect for large families of all ages, Launch 41 is named for the adjacent Pamlico Sound waterfront access at Milepost 41 on North Carolina’s famous Highway 12. Launch 41 is perfect for kiteboarders, windsurfers, standup paddle board riders, kayakers, and fishermen with friendly Pamlico Sound waterfront access via a large grassy area and sandy beach.

                                                                          Paul C.Sandyston

                                                                          What a great place! The house was stocked with almost anything you need in the kitchen, comfortable beds (looking to buy one like the center bedroom on the 3rd floor :) ), and the modern bathrooms and bar/billiard floor (yes I said floor), there was something for everybody and everybody enjoyed! The details have been covered by Lee, who we had the pleasure to meet, and you can immediately see why this property is so well reviewed by everyone that stays here. The pool and hot tub were great too! Outdoor speakers provide music from a bluetooth connected device or the radio or any other source. Double dishwashers upstairs were a gift from god (or Lee)!

                                                                          We will definitely be staying here again. Thank you Lee for really putting together a great place for this family to enjoy and really relax. Peace!

                                                                          Stephen S.

                                                                          My family and I spent a week at Launch 41 in August of 2017, and the house was outstanding. Every room has tons of privacy as well as a large bathroom and deck access to watch the sunsets on the sound. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need and then some, and the pool and hot tub are first rate. The location is also absolutely perfect, giving tons of privacy but just a quick 5 minute walk to the beach or local shops and restaurants. The furniture was all extremely comfortable and there is plenty of seating on every level. The only (minor) issue we had was slow internet speeds on the wi-fi, but every other aspect of our trip was amazing. We've stayed at many houses in this area and Launch 41 was the best by far.

                                                                          Beautiful House on a Beautiful Location

The kitchen was "well appointed" with all the pots and pans required, plus, etc. etc.

                                                                          however should include a box of large plastic garbage bags .

                                                                          the house was very clean upon arrival! good work to the cleaning staff. It would be nice to have the option to pay an additional fee to have the pool heated. I did leave a general message to the management company, but no reply. [ not good]
