Due to the popular demand of Eleanor's loft and our ongoing commitment to customer satisfaction we are now offering the entire house as one rental space. Located within the historic district of Manteo, the Austin House is a newly remodeled craftsman style home within walking distance to the waterfront, festival park, shopping and eating. From the bead board walls, tile and marble bathrooms, to the handsomely designed trim work, everything has been restored in the likeness of a true 1940s outer banks design. Guests will have access to the entire home which includes 3 bedrooms, 3 ½ baths, a fully stocked kitchen, living room w/40 inch TV, laundry room, and wet bar. Relax on one of the 3 decks or enjoy a good book in the reading room. The second floor is bright and tastefully decorated and features a separate outside entrance and breakfast nook; perfect for families or groups traveling together but want some privacy. WIFI, satellite TV, and a blue-tooth stereo are available throughout the home. The house is also centrally located with easy access to Roanoke Island Aquarium, Elizabethan Gardens, Nags Head Beaches and Cape Hatteras National Seashore entrance. You’ll love this home because of the coziness, the location, and the views. The Austin House is great for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids).

About Matthew Falvo
Hello and welcome, we hope you'll enjoy the Austin house as much as we do. We purchased this property in 2016 as a vacation home the entire family can enjoy. We are easy going, beach people who love the stress and carefree life the OBX offers but because we have 4 children and are a dual working family, we don't get to enjoy it as much as we like. Hosting not only helps defray the costs of owning a second home but is also enjoyable knowing that other families can enjoy this town and little piece of paradise as much as we do. Best, Matt, Stefanie, Reed, Olivia, Alex and Vance

Why Matthew Falvo chose Historic District
the historic, downtown Manteo is a one-of-a-kind experience and is unique to other areas of OBX. Enjoy the oceanfront by day and then return to the quant, atmosphere in the evenings. Also, centrally located you can easily explore all areas of the OBX including Nags Head, Wright Brothers Memorial, Hatteras National Park, and more.
What makes this House unique
The upstairs of the house used to be a separate rental space, however we found that noise traveled easily so we decided to open the entire house to guests. The upstairs still features a separate entrance and includes a sitting area, TV, mini-fridge, coffee maker and small table for guests or families traveling together but would like some privacy.

Very cute and comfortable. Great location.
We loved our little home away from home. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a central location. Walking distance to historical town. Apartment was like new. We were very happy and would try to stay there again at next visit.
This was perfect for what we needed. Convenient and very clean.
Gorgeous loft with everything you need!
We had an amazing time staying in the loft- it was beautifully decorated and very nicely maintained. It has everything you need! We will definitely be back.
I loved it! I would live here if it was an oprion!
I stayed in Elenor's Loft above the Austin House and I will be back for sure! Great location, very clean, cozy, comfortable, and very cute! Perfect little nest for 1 or 2! House well maintained, cute yard, easy parking and very helpful and timely communication with the owner when needed. Did I mention the super friendly and helpful locals? I will be back...hopefully sooner than later! Thank you so much for this gem! Exactly what I needed for my soul mission!
Charming, so much better than a hotel
Loved the decor, attention was given to every nook and cranny. I appreciated the little things, like having coffee filters handy. AC worked beautifully but appreciated the standing fan for sleep-white-noise. Loved the location, a half mile walk to the festival park and to the historic downtown and waterfront boardwalk. When others are renting downstairs, you can definitely hear them and smell their bacon, but both those renters and we were considerate and it wasn't a problem. The good outweighed that bit.
Charming sweet well cared for property close to everything.
Enjoy a summer evening experiencing The Lost Colony, the Tony Award winning outdoor symphonic drama that portrays the history of Roanoke Island and a mystery that remains unsolved to this day. The Elizabethan Gardens, The Island Farm, Roanoke Island Aquarium, and Festival Island Park with the Elizabeth II ship tour are all within a five-minute drive of the cottage. Renowned beaches, a world-class marina, and historic lighthouses are also close at hand and can make for great day trips. Prefer to stay close to "home?" Take a leisurely stroll up and down the quaint streets of historic Manteo. Enjoy the architecture, gardens, shops, dining, and ambiance of a small waterfront town that is increasingly difficult to find.
