About the property

Great Views! 4 Master Bedrooms, Bonus Bunk Room, Pool, Hot Tub And More.

We love our home here at the end of the rainbow and hope you will, too. It’s a special place, with gorgeous views over the dunes so you can enjoy the ocean without even leaving the house. There are windows all the way around the third-floor great room, a loft which allows you to see far and wide, large decks on every level, and a screened-in porch on the back side of the house to watch sunsets over the sound. The beach is just over the dunes – you couldn’t be closer. Our grandchildren and friends love the solar-heated private pool and we enjoy the hot tub even in cool weather. The top floor has a beautiful open kitchen which is fully equipped with everything you’ll need, and there’s plenty of room for the whole family in the dining room, with a table that seats eight, a breakfast bar, and a separate breakfast table. If you would like to barbecue, there is a weber gas grill in the carport. The great room features a 40-inch flat-screen hdtv with satellite service, a dvr and a blu-ray dvd player. Beyond the great room is a small office nook with a desk. The house also boasts an elevator, which we love to use for carrying luggage and groceries. The treasure for us here at the end of the rainbow has been wonderful times with friends and family, set against the background of this beautiful beach. We wish you the same!

About Dennis Smith

We fell in love with this area over 20 years ago and decided to buy our own place early on. We love the beach, the sunsets, the relaxed nature of this beautiful place. We love to spend time down here, and we believe you will too. It is our privilege to offer a place where great family memories can be built.

Dennis Smith purchased this house in 2004

Why Dennis Smith chose Waves

We had this house built for us in 2004 by Renaissance Construction, one of the premier builders on the Outer Banks. We had owned another house, and were able to build this one to our specific wishes. End of the Rainbow was built to capitalize on the gorgeous views while providing great amenities: pool, hot tub, elevator, HD TV, and more.

What makes this house unique

A great house for your family or for several families together. Four master bedrooms give each group the comfort and privacy they want, yet still can be close to all the action. The beach is just a few minutes away across the dunes and there are lots of things to do within a short drive.

Watersports abound! Swimming, surfing, kiteboarding, paddleboarding and kayaking are all available just a few minutes away from the house. Check out Real Watersports a few blocks south or Kitty Hawk Kites a few blocks north. If you like to fish, you can surf fish, pier fish, fish in the sound, or hire a charter for the big ones out in the Gulf Stream. There are several casual restaurants in the Rodanthe-Waves-Salvo area. Atlantic Coast Café and Top Dog Café are a short walk up to Highway 12 from the house. Lisa’s Pizza is a very popular local restaurant that is just a short drive north in Rodanthe. For your sweet tooth, Dairy Queen is just at the end of the block (it is only open Memorial Day to Labor Day). We highly recommend the Orange Blossom Bakery and Café in Buxton for breakfast. It’s a 30-minute drive to get there, but it is well worth it! Be sure to try their apple uglies (the biggest apple fritter you have ever seen). They also have great donuts and breakfast sandwiches.

This house is great for families

  • 4 of 5

The layout of the house allows for being together and finding quiet nooks for a little alone time. The location in Waves is quieter than the frenzy of Nags Head and the view is terrific.

We were there in March so indoor spaces were important on stormy days. The kids loved the foosball table.

Even though many places were closed we found lots to do and enjoyed many walks on the beach despite the windy, cool weather.

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house! It was clean, it was spacious, and there were plenty of Little nooks to escape for a quiet moment. There were 13 of us including four generations. We have the most amazing family get together ever in this house. We took turns making dinners three nights of the week and went out to dinner in quaint little restaurants the rest of the week. But the best part of all was the view and walks to the beach. Our whole family including ages two years old to 80 years old loved the waves!

Excellent location and accommodation

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a week here in late April and had a fantastic time. We have previously rented in Nags Head, but this year decided to try a place closer to Salvo (for the kite boarders in my family!). The location is wonderful, just a short walk over dunes to the ocean, with beautiful views of the ocean from the dining and living room areas. The bedrooms were all very large, and each one had its own bathroom, which is great when traveling with a large group.

I like to cook, and this kitchen was extremely well stocked with everything you could possibly want in order to prepare meals......and included an outdoor gas grill, which was a huge hit with me!!

The pool was also lovely, and it was open in late April which was a pleasant surprise, and the hot tub was well used each evening. The pool maintenance happened mid-week as promised, which was also great!

Can't think of anything that needs improvement and we will hope to return for another visit next year....once my kids know their exam schedules, I will be sure to book!

Amazing house and beach access

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great time here. The hosts were responsive and provided extensive information. The views are amazing from both the ocean and sound side. Don't forget to check out the sunset on the front porch, there is a great two person swinging couch there. House was clean and provided everything you needed to cook and entertain. We will definitely try to make it back, hopefully with a larger group that would be more suitable for a house of this size (large).
