Welcome to our home away from home! The “Blue Beach House,” as we typically refer to it, is located oceanside in the quiet village of Salvo on Hatteras Island.
This painstakingly maintained home boasts a bright and spacious open concept layout, featuring an extra-large living area, a recently renovated, fully-stocked kitchen, and a dining area with a large, trestle table with benches, as well as three barstools at the counter. A screened porch, sun deck and large lawn with a charcoal grill provide great outdoor space for everyone, and the three bedrooms, all with TVs, provide ample opportunity for quiet escapes.
The house is a block away from beach access, which means a six-minute walk to some of the East Coast’s most pristine and least populated beaches. A 4-minute walk in the other direction puts you on a boardwalk that stretches into Pamlico Sound, a magical spot to view some of the most glorious sunsets you will ever experience.
This area is world-famous for a variety of outdoor activities. Surfers, kite boarders, wind surfers and fisherman, not to mention those that just want to relax on a quiet beach, will all find ideal locations minutes from the house. For our fishing guests, the house includes an outdoor fish cleaning table with running water, right next to our charcoal grill. Surfers can easily store their gear in racks under the house. Public access to the most popular spots for all these activities is either a short walk or a 5-minute drive away. Equipment for any of these activities, as well as sea kayaks, jet skis and bikes, is available for rent just up the road.
The house is also centrally located to the endless variety of sites and activities the Outer Banks offers. Everything from golf, outlet shopping, parasailing, historical sights, nature viewing and hiking trails and an overwhelming choice of restaurants can be had, going north or south along the island. Nobody could ever claim to be bored!
This family friendly house has a porta-crib, a high chair, and a baby gate on the deck, as well as board games, puzzles and a small library of children’s books.
We recycle! Please take advantage of the large bin for co-mingled recycling.
We hope you enjoy our home, and this wonderful area, as much as our family has for the last 30 years!
