Why Bill and Lucy Gordon chose Spindrift Banks

After renting homes at the Outer Banks for nearly 25 years, we couldn't resist the opportunity to purchase this beautiful home located directly across the street from an access leading to a wide, uncrowded beach. During the past year we have enjoyed remodeling much of the home with new hardwood and ceramic tile floors, as well as new carpeting in all the bedrooms. The colorful and comfortable furniture is also largely all new.

What makes this house unique

Home sits right across from beach access!

Loved this house!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this home and location! The home is very clean and very comfortable. It was in a perfect location to enjoy both time at the beach and exploring the surrounding island community. We would watch the sunset out the kitchen window as we cleaned up after dinner and then retreat to the chairs on the deck which are perfect for end of day relaxing, and we spent every evening watching the moon rise over the ocean and the stars come out. The dining room table was large enough to accommodate late night family board games and snacks and the beds were comfortable and clean. We had an incredible trip and staying in a home that was well taken care of and beautiful made the trip even better. There is nothing about this house I would change. One note, we happened to have a collapsible wagon with us that ended up making our beach trips much easier as it is a short but narrow path through the dunes to the beach.

Another fantastic holiday at Beach Safari

  • 5 of 5

Great location, great house, wonderful owners! This was our third summer renting Beach Safari and it did not disappoint. It's right across the street from the beach path, and only a few minutes walk to sound access on the other side of Highway 12. We paddled, kite-surfed, boogie-boarded and swam. Stingrays and sea turtles popped up to see us. Magical. Salvo is quiet, the beach is never crowded, and the Blue Whale (the convenience store around the corner) has a great little wine selection. The house itself has everything you need, including a newly renovated kitchen. We've already booked for next summer.

Wonderful Beach Home With Great Beach Access

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this home. There was plenty of room for seven adults and a baby. We ate family style every night and appreciated the well equipped kitchen. We also loved how clean the house was and found the beds really comfortable. The hot tub was great after windy beach walks and also very clean and well serviced. We like the calmer, quieter towns south of Nags Head. We were able to walk to kyaking across the highway, on the bayside. The Blue Whale is a great local grocery only a block from the house. We highly recommend this home.

Great house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Beach Safari this summer. It was our second time in the house, and we've already booked again for next summer. The house is spotlessly clean and well-equipped. It's right across the street from the beach path, and only a short drive to the Salvo Day Use area on the sound side. The beach is gorgeous and not crowded, even in the high season. Another lovely family holiday!

Great location, and lovely home

  • 5 of 5

Ok, I know I'm late posting this, but better late than never! We stayed a week here last summer (2015), and had a very nice visit. The home was very clean, well maintained, and the complimentary bottle of wine was a nice touch. The beach is a short walk from the house, and the location is convenient to a lot of great sightseeing opportunities. We had a fantastic time here and hope to return again.

Perfect vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We spent 9 days at Beach Safari and we loved it! The house comes with everything you need, including beach chairs and umbrellas. The kitchen is well equipped and spacious. We loved sitting on the deck watching the sun rise in the morning, and we could go across the street to see the sunset on the sound. The location is perfect - Salvo beach is quiet and not crowded, even on the 4th of July weekend. It is away from the busy commercial areas but there are plenty of grocery stores nearby and even a place across the street to rent kayaks or paddle boards. It is a little bit of a trek from the house to the beach over the sandy dune but definitely walkable for most people. This was our first visit to the Outer Banks and we definitely want to return! If you are looking for a relaxing beach vacation - this is the place to go!
