Located on the south end of Avon in the 'Askin's Creek' neighborhood.

The Blue Surf Bungalow has 3 bedrooms, full kitchen, living room, dining area, additional lounging area in the loft, laundry room, 3 decks, and a fenced yard.

The master bedroom retreat is located on the 1st floor and has a king size bed, private full bathroom complete with a jetted tub and separate shower stall, sitting area with a love seat couch and 40" flat screen tv, full size dresser with mirror, a large walk-in closet with hangers, and a sliding door that leads to a deck in the fenced yard.

The two additional bedrooms are on the 2nd floor and are outfitted with queen beds, full size dressers with mirrors, 32" flat panel televisions, and closets with hangers. There is a full bathroom with a combination tub/shower on the 2nd floor as well.

Also on the 2nd floor are the kitchen, living room, and dining area. The kitchen of The Blue Surf Bungalow is fully stocked with cookware, plates, silverware, glasses & wine glasses, toaster, blender, coffee maker, hand mixer, and stainless steel appliances. The appliances are all full size and include a french door refrigerator with in-door ice/water dispenser, electric oven/stove, microwave, and dishwasher.

The living room has a sectional sofa, two lounge chairs, a 42" flat panel tv with HD satellite reception, and a blu-ray dvd player. The dining area has a large square counter height table with seating for 8. There is a sliding door that leads to the upper level deck which is great for sitting in the sun or watching the sunsets.

A 3rd level loft area is set up as a secondary lounging area with a queen size couch, 42" flat panel tv, and blu-ray dvd player. There is also a full bathroom with a combination tub/shower. This area can also be used as an additional sleeping area with the couch containing a queen size pull-out bed. The loft also boasts partial ocean views.

A separate laundry room on the 1st floor with full size washer & dryer ensures that you won't run out of clean clothes while on vacation. A provided iron & ironing board also keep you looking crisp on your evenings out.

Unlike most rentals on Hatteras Island, The Blue Surf Bungalow does not require a full week rental and guests are not required to check in on a specified day of the week. Additionally, linens are provided for the king size and queen size beds as well as 6 sets of bath towels. Linens for the pull out couch and additional bath towels can be obtained for an additional cost.

POLICIES:

RATES: All listed rates are based on a maximum 6 person occupancy, with a minimum 3 night stay. Up to 2 additional guests are permitted for a total of 8 occupants, however, for each additional guest there is a $5.00 per night/per extra guest fee. Linens are provided for the king bed and two queen beds along with 6 sets of bath towels. Additional linens for the pull out couch and extra bath towels are available for a one time $25 fee. These fees are to offset the additional costs that we incur from the cleaning crew that services The Blue Surf Bungalow.

DEPOSIT: A deposit of 50% of the net room rate is required for stays of 3 nights or more (may be paid in full at time of reservation if you wish) and balance is due at the time of check-in.

CHECK-IN: The final paperwork for The Blue Surf Bungalow will be filled out upon guest check-in. A valid drivers license and credit card must be presented at check-in. Any damages to the property that are determined to not be pre-existing will be charged to the guest credit card on file.

CANCELLATION POLICY: Deposits are fully refundable up to 60 days before the start of your reservation. A 50% refund of the deposit is available for cancellations made 59 -30 days prior to the start of your reservation. Within 30 days guests are responsible for the full cost of the reservation. Within 30 days of your reservation, booked dates cannot be transferred to later dates. There are NO weather related refunds, except for the case of a mandatory evacuation. Only dates covered in an evacuation order will be refunded. Within 30 days, as long as there is no evacuation order from Dare County, guests are responsible for payment of their booked dates - NO EXCEPTIONS.  While we understand that emergencies happen, the reason for cancellation does not change our cancellation or refund policy. 

WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND TRAVEL INSURANCE so that you are protected from any unexpected circumstances that may keep you from being able to keep your reservation.  Please look online for the best travel insurance for you. While we understand that emergencies happen, the reason for cancellation does not change our cancellation or refund policy.  Travel insurance will help reimburse you for your costs if you are not able to keep your reservation and your cancellation does not qualify for a refund under our cancellation policy.  Travel insurance is easy to purchase, is inexpensive, and will save you a lot of frustration and money in the event that you cannot keep your reservation.  Please be aware that Hatteras Island is in an area that has frequent tropical activity (hurricanes, tropical storms, etc.) and that Dare County rarely issues an evacuation order for these events. If you do not want to keep your reservation if a storm event is approaching we cannot refund your payment without an official evacuation order.  Travel insurance will help you cover costs that we cannot refund. We cannot stress how important it is to purchase travel insurance. Please be sure to look online to find the best policy for you.

AGE REQUIREMENTS: Guests of all ages are welcome at The Blue Surf Bungalow, however the responsible party must be a minimum age of 25 years old. This person must be the one to assume responsibility for the property during the rental period, sign the paperwork at check-in, and he/she must be staying at the property for the duration of the rental period.

FIREWORKS POLICY: While on vacation you may see or hear other visitor setting off fireworks, however, please note that ALL fireworks are illegal in Dare County. If caught you will receive a substantial fine from the county. The county has set up this law because there have been numerous house and brush fires due to fireworks. The beach vegetation can be very dry, especially during the summer months, and can easily ignite. Please refrain from using any fireworks on the beach or on The Blue Surf Bungalow property. Any use of fireworks on The Blue Surf Bungalow property will result in immediate eviction with no refund.

ADDITIONAL POLICIES: The Blue Surf Bungalow is a smoke-free and pet-free property. Any guests that fail to follow these rules will be evicted immediately with no refund. Any damages caused by failure to follow these rules will be charged to the credit card on file.

About Kevin & Debra

Husband and wife, Kevin and Debra, both grew up vacationing in Avon. Kevin traveled down with his family from Virginia & Debra traveled with her family from Ohio. Although we never met here as kids, we both spent many summers in Avon forming a bond with this special stretch of beach. We met when we reached college age and were both living in Cape Hatteras for the summer with summer jobs, Kevin was teaching surfing lessons in the mornings and waiting tables in the evening, Debra was working for a real estate company in the reservations department. In 2001 we chose to make Hatteras Island, and Avon in particular, our home. We live here full time raising our 2 children because we have always loved this town and this island for the people, the laid back casual atmosphere and, of course, the beach.

What makes this cottage unique

We are in a unique position to offer an equally luxurious smaller rental in an area filled with starter mansions. The Blue Surf Bungalow is perfect for a family, 2-3 couples or a small group of friends who want to be close to everything and enjoy the benefits of the island. We are able to offer our guests use of the Koru Beach Klub oceanfront pool facility, use of the fitness facilities and yoga & fitness classes at Spa Koru, and use of the Avon Fishing Pier. In addition, the owners of The Blue Surf Bungalow also own and operate Hatteras Island Boardsports surf shop - located just a mile and a half north of the cottage - in the middle of Avon. This allows us to offer guests of the property discounts on watersports equipment rentals and surf lessons from the surf shop.

The house had a very cozy and charming atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

I usually don't leave reviews, but my family and I were very pleased with this vacation home. It was absolutely charming and cozy! My family and I loved it. There was enough room for all of us to relax without being on top of each other and there were 7 of us! It felt like home. The patio was amazing for the late afternoon family down time. My only complaint was the shower in the downstairs bathroom, it needed some deep cleaning. Other than that, I would definitely recommend this vacation home! The area was quiet and relaxing. And Kevin and the staff at the HIB store and pool were extremely helpful and wonderful! We are looking forward to hopefully renting again next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review! We are definitely happy to hear that you and your family had plenty of room at the cottage and that you felt at home during your stay - that is exactly how we want guests to feel!! We did bring up your deep cleaning suggestion to the cleaning crew for the one shower. We asked them to make sure to give it some extra attention every time from now on since it is tiled and needs a little more cleaning time spent on it than your standard shower surround. But, we are thrilled that overall you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to having you as guests again next year! Thanks again.

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Blue Surf Bungalow! The house is very attractively decorated, clean, comfortable, and spacious, even for our family of 7:) It was great to have a foot hose and shower right on the deck to get all the sand off outside, and helpful to have a big washer/drier and dishwasher. Location was good- you do have to cross the main road and walk a little ways to get down to the beach, but we found it easiest with all our stuff to just drive 2 minutes to a beach access parking lot down the road. The beach on the ocean side was beautiful with huge waves, and there is also a great little spot on the Sound side just a few minutes away- lovely for sunsets and skipping rocks in the calm water. Good variety of restaurants close by- we appreciated the list of suggestions the owners had on the counter. And there is also a good grocery store less than five minutes away. We would definitely return to this location and property!

Perfect place for our family

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a great spot in Avon to stay for less that a full week. We knew we started late this year. We also knew we didn't need to be directly on the ocean front if we could walk to the beach in 5 minutes or so. This was a great find and was perfect for our family. We were only traveling with our girls (4 people total), but then added 3 people when friends could join us. Blue Surf Bungalow was perfect. A smaller home that was still big enough for 7 people. Close to the beach and a beautiful home. It was perfect for our return to OBX after a 7 year hiatus. We will never go that long again!

We are so happy to hear that you found the cottage to be a spacious and comfortable spot to stay for you and your group. We loved having you and hope to see you again - hopefully before another 7 years go by!
