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.

Dear Pinos:

We had a great time at Cape Hatteras this week and your house was perfect. We have attached some photos of our kids Erin and Alex and dog Maizey having fun at your house. We will be back next June.

Very Nice, Clean and Convenient House for Groups

  • 5 of 5

Cheryl is a great owner and I enjoyed doing business with her. She was professional and responsive.

The house is very nice, second row, and updated nicely. We took a group of men fishing for the weekend and it slept 8 very easily. In fact there were extra beds. The rooms are comfortable and the living area is great for a group.

Great house, awful owners

  • 1 of 5

The actual house was great, but it was dirty when we got there. There was sand, dead bugs, and trash every where. And one of the chairs in the sitting area had a huge oil stain on it.

We called, and someone came to clean it, but she couldn't do a great job, because she was going to a wedding, so we had to finish cleaning it.

When we checked out we were charged for the oil stain, and a couple other things we didn't do to the house. The owner kept saying no one was in the house the week before, but obviously there was, and we had to pay for their fun.

Fantastic home in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay here- location is ideal (walking distance to grocery store, restaurants, and Avon pier). House was great- we had three young kids and the layout worked well for us. Heated pool was lovely and the owners were easy to work with!

Location, location, location.

We had a great time at Virginia Dare. The location can't be beat. You get ocean views and super easy access to the beach without paying oceanfront prices. We were comfortable in the home and the Pino's were very accommadating. My favorite spot was the pool. When you're there you are saying "this is the life". Would not hesitate to return for another stay.

Virginia Dare review

  • 5 of 5

The facilities were great. There were 5 in our party, but this house can easily accommodate a much larger number without crowding or skimping on the amenities. The house was spacious and very well equipped The kitchen utensils and electric appliances offered were a notch above from previous stays at other rentals.. The rental was well situated in a more isolated setting than other townships in the obx but close to food shopping, and the beach. Best of all the owners bent over backward in helping us arrange the vacation and very accommodative in allowing an extended stay due to my mistake in dates of departure. I recommend this rental without any reservations and would come here again if I make it back to the obx

Owner's Response: Hi Roy & Crew! Thank you for taking the time to write a review on our home. It's always rewarding for us to hear how well our home worked for our guests! We try and keep our home to standards we look for when we travel. It's close proximity to the beach, major grocery, restaurants and other places of interest are why we bought in Avon. Glad we added a chapter in your family's memory book and we look forward to having you back on your next OBX vacation. Happy Memories! Sherry & Joe

You Can't Go Wrong

  • 5 of 5

This house is crazy wicked. Joe and Sherry have put every possible amenity in it you can think of. The layout of the house is great and gives every one some space but also makes it easy to come together out on the decks. It is just a short walk to the beach and it feels secluded but it is close to restaurants, shopping and attractions as well. Sherry and Joe were great to work with. You can't go wrong with this house or these people.

Owner's Response: Sharon & Family, Thanks for a great review! Joe and I love reading our reviews and seeing how our home works so well for our guests. It is nice and roomy but with great spots to get away or have those one on one conversations. Nice big Food Lion is within walking distance and of course under 3 minute walk to the ocean. Enjoy your Memories! Joe & Sherry
