Awesome Soundfront - Water Sports and Sunsets - Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful Fourth of July week at the East Wind with family members from 20's to 60's. This house was chosen due to the wonderful view for times that we were not on the beach. We enjoyed watching the expert kite boarders, etc from the top deck where there's plenty of furniture - a great hang-out spot. The sound varies with the wind and is very amazing to observe. It was great to be in the central location of Avon for access to the Food Lion, great restuarants and even a spa - yet when we day-tripped to the National Seashore in our off-road vehicles we had plenty of space to enjoy the beauty. A very memorable week - totally relaxing and a reminder to all of how lucky we are here in NC!

The East Wind has alot to offer - I recommend a stay!

One more tip - we brought almost all of our supplies and were glad that we did. The Food Lion is big and fully-stocked every day (a logistics marvel) but the crowds make for a time-consuming visit if you have a detailed list to deal with. We only had to go for several items at a time which made for happy shoppers. (FYI - pack in small loads as the kitchen is on the top floor - with the fantastic view). Love OBX and the East Wind!

Lovely home decorated with a beautiful beach theme.

  • 5 of 5

We all loved our stay. What a wonderful, cheery beach house. Awesome view, convenient to necessities. Grand space for large family time but also many nooks to read or just get some quiet time. Well stocked with all the kitchen tools one would need. We would definitely stay again. Kudos to the owner for sharing this beautiful get away home.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

House was fantastic with great views from every deck and plenty of space for everyone. The hot tub and kayak both saw plenty of use. Location was perfect being right on the water but still able to walk to the beach, we only drove once after arriving to go to the grocery store. We all really enjoyed our stay.
