About the property

Five Bedroom Sound front Home with pool, hot tub, billiards table, media room..

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.

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in mid-April and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The property is amazing! From the older adults to the teenagers, everyone enjoyed their stay. The owner was fantastic. We will definitely come again!

Amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property - very clean, functional and it's obvious that a deliberate effort was made to consider every detail and wish of guests. The location is great and the sunset views from the property are stunning! We plan to return next year!

Amazing Vacation Rental in OBX

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing vacation home! My friends and I had a great time staying here. The house is just incredible. Plenty of room (with 6 full size bathrooms!) and great accommodations. I couldn't believe how many of the rooms had king-sized beds - what a rarity! Property was immaculate when we arrived. And cleaning crew arrived right around 10am as expected on our last day.

The kitchen/dining/family room area is very spacious. Several of us could be comfortably in the kitchen. It's nice that there's also a kitchenette on the bottom level (full size fridge, sink, small dishwasher, cabinets, cutlery). It's easy access from there to the grill out front or the hot tub and pool in the back. There's also a TV with an incredible sound system down there. Nice to have that area on a floor without any bedrooms.

Balcony access from every room, and stocked with more than ample furniture. The sunsets are just incredible. For a group of friends who live just outside of DC, we really enjoyed being able to sit and see so many stars. We actually only went to the beach our first day there. We found ourselves enjoying the house, its pool & hot tub, and the rentals available next door so much everyday that we didn't want to leave, even to head to the beach. What a fun, relaxing, breathtaking, and memorable vacation at Launch 41!

Perfect family vacation house

  • 5 of 5

This house met or exceeded our every expectation. The living space was large enough that our group of 13 (ranging in age from 10 to 74) never felt crowded - and with enough bedrooms and space that we could each find some privacy as well. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need and we actually ended up eating in more than planned because it was so easy. The pool was clean and beautiful - kids loved the basketball net. The hot tub was also clean and the perfect size. The kids loved wandering along the shoreline of the sound and the adults could spend all day watching the kite surfers and that amazing sunset each evening! The bedrooms were each large and very nicely decorated. Everything was spotless and clean. The elevator came in handy as well! We loved the quiet, uncrowded feel in Waves and the view of the sound - but the sandy beach is right nearby as well. We loved the pristine beaches found directly across from the house (just look for the "Beach" signs between houses to hike over the dunes to the beach) when we were in the mood for some beach/wave time. I can't think of anything to improve on - beautifully decorated and appointed, spotlessly clean, amazing views, lots of room for family - amazing vacation!

The property was beautiful and spotless. The amenities with the house were fantastic. We had 6 adults and 4 children, the house was so comfortable for all us. The house made our trip perfect!! The Shore Details Concierge was such a nice feature, our groceries were waiting for us upon arrival. We are already thinking of coming back!

It's perfection

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect. It has everything you need for a perfect vacation. By far the best VRBO/HomeAway we have ever rented. Spent every day on the perfect beach and the kids played in the consistent 6-10 foot waves. The kids spent every late afternoon in the pool watching a perfect sunset, while the adults watched from the upper balcony with a glass of wine. I even got to watch my Cubbies play the Mets in the family room while over my left shoulder I watched an orange moon shine on the perfectly still sound. It doesn't get much better.

Kids made me promise we would come back next year.
