About the Property

3 bedroom, 2 bath, open floor plan, short walk to the beach and Sound

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!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1986

About the owner: Although we are life-long Maryland residents, we have considered the coast of North Carolina our second home for all of our adult lives. Beth has been coming here with her family since she was a kid, and shortly before we got married her parents bought the land, and then had the house built in 1986. As the second generation of owners, we have been blessed with a place our three children have always known and cherished. Since we depend on rent to keep the house, we have to limit our own visits to a week or two every summer for fun, and then the week at each end of the season for maintenance and repair. These times are gold for our family, and make every headache of long-distance ownership worthwhile. Our goal for this house has always been to provide this refuge and freedom for our kids, and at the same time to share it with people who are just getting to know the Outer Banks, or who have already found this quiet spot to be one of the most relaxing and rejuvenating places on the East Coast. We hope you enjoy it! -Jeff and Beth

Why the Owner Chose Rodanthe, NC, USA:
When we bought this property we had no idea how lucky a choice it was. Located in Salvo, we are minutes away from anything we might need. I've spent an entire, relaxing week there without driving more than 5 miles for groceries or a good meal. On the other hand, with Nags Head, Kitty Hawk and Manteo a half hour drive north, and Avon and Hatteras 20 minutes to the south, there are endless activities for every age and group size a short, uncongested drive away. These days I tend to relax on the porch with my wife, while the kids drive all over creation finding fun things to do. Unless they are going to go mini golfing, at which point I'm going, too.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our house can quickly be described as a 'Carolina Beach Box,' but that does not do this home justice. Renovations in the 90's enlarged the family room, almost doubling it's size, providing ample space for TV viewing, book reading, and games, puzzles or food on a table all at the same time. The kitchen and both bathrooms were just renovated a couple of years ago, getting rid of the 80's flooring and cabinets. The extra large grassy lot also provides an unusually large space for outdoor fun within earshot of the relaxing porches. And we have always taken great pride in keeping the house clean, well-furnished and well stocked. Most visitors think the house is just a few years old, not 30!
