About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Under a 2 minute walk puts you on the beach of this large, ocean view home is located in the pristine Cape Hatteras National Seashore with its unspoiled beaches. Minutes away is sightseeing, shopping, restaurants, outdoor activities, and charter boat fishing. Enjoy ocean views, sounds and smells without the cost of ocean front from this well-appointed home.

With ocean and sound views, VIRGINIA DARE has all the necessities for a great vacation. The first floor boasts a game room with a pool table where everyone can have hours of fun, bedroom with two sets of bunks, a half bath, wine and bar refrigerators, and the entrance to the private heated (optional) pool and sun deck. Relax at the pool and listen to your favorite tunes from the superior sound system where volume is controlled on pool deck.

The second floor has three ocean-side bedrooms with sliding-glass doors to large east and south decks and bubbly six-person hot tub. The first bedroom has two twins, the second one a queen. The third bedroom is a master suite with a king and private bath. A second full bath and laundry room are located on this level along with a quiet area with desk for one who needs to keep in touch with business while away.

Dine in the third-level, ocean view, great room with tall ceilings, 42' flat screen TV, south and east decks, half bath, wet bar with second full size refrigerator with second icemaker, breakfast bar, chef-appointed kitchen, and seating for 16. Located off the comfortably and creatively furnished great room is a fifth, ocean view, master bedroom with a king, private bath and deck access.

Sun worshipers will love the miles of decks and loads of deck furniture. Enjoy music from the extensive sound system while swimming in the pool or relaxing in the hot tub.

Before or after the hectic pace of the summer, take advantage of the spring and fall months. The water temperatures are warm and rates are low. September and October are some the prettiest months on the Outer Banks with a slower pace.

We think you will agree, VIRGINIA DARE is the FIRST LADY OF THE COAST.

About Sherry Pino

We both grew up in New Jersey and met in college.

Joe vacationed in Salvo with a neighbor at the age of 10 for a camping trip. He returned to fish while in college.

Our family has been vacationing in the OBX since 1984. Loving Ocracoke in 1989 we bought our first rental property there.

In 2000 we wanted another piece of rental property and purchased Virginia Dare. Avon is a few hours closer to home but still has charm of smaller coastal town without the strip malls of Nags Head area.

In June of 2013 we retired and moved to Raleigh, NC where we started a new business. It's great being closer to OBX and we are enjoying being able to visit more often.

Sherry Pino purchased this house in 2000

Why Sherry Pino chose Hatteras Island

We have added extras to our home that we look for in a rental property when we travel to afford our guests a relaxing vacation.

Great house on quiet street

Wonderful house in a great location steps from the beach. Near everything the Outer Banks has to offer, but in a very quiet area perfect for families.

Love, Love, Love Virginia Dare

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Virginia Dare for four years and couldn't love it more. The house is beautifully equipped with everything you could need and oh so comfortable. The views of the ocean and pool are wonderful and the access to the beach is just steps away. Included is a linen service that makes it so easy to just pack up your bathing suit and flip flops and you're on your way to a great vacation. The owner has always gone above and beyond in answering questions and the included concierge service, Shore Details is so helpful. When our family arrives we just all say "Ahhhhhhh....." and relax.

Great for families!

  • 5 of 5

My siblings and I brought our families together at this spacious 5 bedroom beach house and had a blast all week. We stayed at the beach all day, (when it didn't rain), ate food we bought from the Food Lion a mile down the road, and enjoyed listening to music and playing pool in the game room. Our dog, a boxer/pit mix, had a decent sized backyard in which to fetch tennis balls, though she much preferred chasing crabs on the beach. Our kids would only leave the pool--3ft deep all around, nice!--for the hot tub or the beach.

Problems with the house were minimal. The dishwasher is temperamental. Follow the instructions Sheri gives you and you'll be fine. The hot tub stopped being hot on the last evening of the last day. We let the property managers, Shore Details, know about it but did not request their immediate attention. They did show up within 30 minutes to replace the propane tanks for the grill, however, so I'm sure they would have done the same for the hot tub.

Virginia Dare is an excellent property in the heart of the Avon. I highly recommend it!
