This is a perfect beach house for a family, 2-3 couples, or a small group of friends who want a comfortable yet modern & elegant place to enjoy their time on one of America's best beaches!

Located on the south end of Avon in the 'Askin's Creek' neighborhood. Guests can walk to the beach in approximately 3 minutes to enjoy the sun, surf, and relaxation of the world renowned Cape Hatteras Seashore. Cape Hatteras is consistently on the Top 10 list of Dr. Beach's Best Beaches in the U.S.A.

Guests of The Blue Surf Bungalow enjoy free unlimited access to the following amenities:

-Koru Beach Klub oceanfront pool facility

-Spa Koru fitness center and yoga classes

-Wifi connection throughout the cottage

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 one time $25 fee. Single or 2 night stays are permitted during the "Off" Seasons, but require payment in full at the time of reservation. Additionally, single or 2 nights stays incur a $50 cleaning costs 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. Single or 2 night stays are permitted during the "Off" Seasons, but require payment in full at the time of reservation. Additionally, single or 2 nights stays incur a $50 cleaning costs fee.

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

30 DAY CANCELLATION POLICY: Deposits are fully refundable up to 30 days before the start of your reservation. Within 30 days of the start of your reservation, you 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 couple miles north 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.

Comfortable vacation rental

  • 4 of 5

The house was very clean and comfortable for our family of 6. The beds were comfortable, it was nicely furnished and very spacious. The kids loved the bonus room up in the loft. There is even a litttle peek-a-boo view of the ocean. Every room had its own TV, the wifi worked great, and there was a little yard for the kids to play in. The only downside was the kitchen could have been a little better equipped to cook at the house, considering that most of the restaurants were closed during the off season. The entire Avon area was quite abandoned during December, which is sad because it is such a nice place. There were tons of for sale signs everywhere and stores and restaurants were closed down. The fact that the rental is right next to a busy highway wasn't that noticeable during our trip because not too many cars were out driving and there are trees and shrubs for privacy. If you are looking for a clean and comfortable rental that is a decent price, this one is a winner, even if it is a little further from Nags Head/Kitty Hawk. We enjoyed our walks on the deserted beaches looking for interesting sea shells, but had no luck fishing. We also appreciated the easy check-in process. Thank you for a nice winter getaway to your place.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! So glad that you all found the cottage to be clean & comfortable place to stay. December is definitely "off season", as you found out. Most businesses/restaurants are closed up due to the lack of visitors to the area during the winter season. Vacation time for the island locals! However it is a nice time to decompress and just enjoy the open beach as you all did. Luckily our little 2 lane "highway" never gets too busy, even during the summer, so road noise is never really an issue. And, as you stated, the privacy trees/shrubs definitely help too. The area is heavy with rental investment properties. So for-sale signs are a constant part of the landscape, especially during the winter, as investors test the market while they are not bringing in the summer rental income. Happy to hear that the kids enjoyed the fenced yard and bonus loft area. But we apologize that you didn't find the kitchen to be equipped with sufficient supplies. We try to keep it stocked with everything necessary: pots, pans, mixer, measuring cups, cookie sheets, bakeware, etc. If you have any suggestions for additional items we always welcome them so that we can improve the rental experience. Thanks again for your review, and we hope that you will return again during the summertime so that you can enjoy all of the shops, restaurants, and of course the warm water and sunny days!

First outer Banks trip!

  • 5 of 5

House had a great layout, even had a ramp so my mother and father in law didn't have to worry about those steps. plenty of space for our family. The master bedroom is very nice! Also the loft is a cool hangout spot.. nice view. Kevin(owner) is a awesome guy who answered all my questions and gave great recommendations based off of our interest. House is very reasonably priced. Loved the stay. PS bring bug spray.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review! So happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and found our cottage to be a good fit for you and your family. Hopefully next time you visit Hatteras the mosquitoes won't be so bad! (But probably a good idea to have some bug spray just in case) Thanks again for your review and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Outer Banks Vacation Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six adults stayed for a week, and the Blue Surf Bungalow exceeded every expectation. What a great place to stay! We certainly enjoyed the included amenities – Koru Beach Klub, Avon Fishing Pier, free WiFi – but the place itself was spectacular. Beautifully appointed rooms (the master suite is amazing!), plenty of space to move around in, comfortable seating for dinners, and the perfect location for both beach dwellers and local explorers. The "bungalow" (hardly an apt description – the place is truly exceptional) is located close to grocery and gift stores, restaurants, and local shops, and the recommendations of the owners were right on the money! (Bros Sandwiches were some of the best we've ever had.) We had everything we needed for a terrific family vacation. We can't say enough how much we enjoyed it; we would definitely come back again!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review!! Overjoyed to hear that you all had plenty of space and found the cottage to be a comfortable place to stay - and that you took advantage of all of the amenities. We couldn't agree with you more about Bro's, love those burgers!! Might have to head over there for lunch today!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Blue Surf Bungalow! I was in town for the weekend for a wedding with friends from college. The house had so much space for us so that we could enjoy the weekend together but also have our privacy. The upstairs loft really makes it so there are four bedrooms -- there is even a private bathroom up there!

It is so easy to get to the beach, and conveniently close to the local grocery store and some restaurants. We also enjoyed using our passes to the Koru Beach Club. We were able to spend a day at the pool sipping margaritas when it was a little to windy on the beach.

The owner was very easy to work with and allowed us to come in to the house early after driving through the night! All in all it was a great trip and I would highly recommend the Blue Surf Bungalow!

Superb Blue Surf Bungalow stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our Avon stay at Blue Surf Bungalow. The pictures definitely match the high quality of this property. I was slightly concerned with the closenes to Rt 12, but noise and traffic were not an issue. The rooms and furniture were decorated nicely, the beds comfortable, and very clean. You can't go wrong with this property. The adults enjoyed the yard for Cornhole, and the fence kept the little on contained. Thanks to Kevin for another wonderful vacation on Hatteras Island.
