Whether you're here to surf, kiteboard, fish, kayak, beach walk, sightsee or even go horseback riding....we have you covered! Everything is either within walking distance, available on site, or a short drive away. Rodanthe is an amazing part of the island and centrally located on the Outer Banks! Being that it's the smallest section and directly next to the wildlife refuge, the beaches are a lot less crowded than the beaches north in Nags Head or south in Avon. There are a few restaurants (only 1 late night bar) and other conveniences nearby but outside of that, the island is quiet and relaxing. If you are here for kiteboarding, Hatteras Island Sail Shop (HISS) is down the road, Barton and his son Reider are hands down the people to see if you're looking for lessons or anything surf/kite, they will give you a great value and a more personal experience. Special discount to our guests on lessons and rentals with HISS making this the best deal on the island for kiteboarding lessons! Watermans/REAL is about 2 miles away. They have live music nightly and a restaurant in the summer along with a great sunset view. There are a few other local restaurants within walking/biking distance and all locally run. Hatteras Lighthouse is a 30 minute drive away and the Bodie Lighthouse is 20 minutes away. You can ride horses on the beach in Buxton only 30 minutes away or you can get a surf lesson by your host, Jeremy, with given notice before your stay.
  • This place exceeded my expectations by a long shot its absolutely beautiful the beach is so close and Dawn and Jeremy are so nice! Will most definitely be back and not only is Dawn's family amazing so is everyone here in town! I cant say enough about how absolutely incredible our stay was!!

  • This super spacious cottage was perfect for my family of 5 (one of us is furry with paws!) We met Jeremy and he was super informative about what to expect with the area and made us feel welcome and comfortable staying next to his family home. Having access to the beach right across the street allowed us to spend every single day there. The outdoor shower right outside the cottage was perfect for cleaning up after each beach day. We checked out Cape Hatteras light house, the Salvo Sound area, and different beach spots. The local restaurants were tasty but pricey! I would absolutely recommend Dawns place to anyone and definitely plan on coming back! Thank you guys again!

    Briana2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Dawn's place is a FANTASTIC place to stay! It's perfect for two people, looking to get away and relax. Rodanthe is pretty much mid-way down the outer banks and is in a perfect location. Exactly what you'd expect from the quaint, windswept dunes and perfect sand beaches. Not a lot of hustle and bustle but that is exactly what we wanted. Dawn is VERY responsive and was full of great suggestions! HIGHLY recommend this property!

    Steve2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful area and this is a great place to stay. Close to the beach for convenience. Comfortable living space.

    David2019-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • Good place, great value

    Tim2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • I couldn't have asked for a better host or location! My boyfriend and I were in need of a break from city living, and Dawn's beach "shack" was the perfect spot. It was cozy and comfortable, and just steps from the Atlantic and the Sound. Dawn is fantastic - and couldn't have been more understanding and hospitable when the weather threw us a few curve-balls. We hope to be back soon!

    Audrey2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay! We enjoyed the location being only steps from the beach and not far from some restaurants and shops. The amenities were very nice with provided beach chairs, outdoor shower to remove sand, and a nice pool. Overall a great value for the location. We especially loved being greeted by Miss Kitty when we headed out to explore the area each day. Highly recommend.

    A relaxing vacation getaway awaits you in Blue Moon, a beautiful oceanfront, first floor condo on Hatteras Island in the village of Avon. Hatteras Island was recently noted to be one of the 10 Best Beaches in the U.S. by Conde Nast, and one of the 10 Best Beaches You Can Drive To by USA Today. From Blue Moon you will enjoy your very own stairs leading directly to the Islander's private boardwalk, making for quick and easy access to the beach and ocean.
    The master bedroom includes a queen size bed, private bath with tub and shower, and sliding doors to your furnished covered deck. You can see the ocean from every angle of this bedroom, making it a delight to retire and rise in each day. The guest bedroom on the opposite end offers privacy with two comfy single beds and a bath with shower just around the corner. Pack light because you can clean your clothes in the Blue Moon's full sized washer and dryer.
    The village of Avon is located on the North Carolina Outer Banks, on Hatteras Island. Avon is bordered to the east by the Atlantic Ocean and to the west by Pamlico Sound. Historically named "Kinnakeet", the village was renamed "Avon" by the U.S. Postal Service when a post office was established there in 1883. Hatteras Island is one of the longest barrier islands in the U.S., and is known for its beaches, sports & fishing. Notable things to do/places to see include Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, Graveyard of the Atlantic Seashore, Frisco Native American Musuem & Natural History Center, Canadian Hole for wind and kite surfing, Buxton Woods Coastal Reserve, Chicamacomico Life-Saving Station Historic Site, Pea Island wildlife and bird refuge, and much more!
  • Her place is cozy, spacious, and well equipped. The view is breathtaking and you can sleep to the sound of the ocean. Walked on the beach each morning, sat on the deck to read looking at God’s perfect creation, played games (which she has several) and enjoyed family time in her living area was awesome! Highly recommend it.

    Simone2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • I would like to take this opportunity to thank Beverly for allowing me to book her condo. I really dug the location, the breathtaking view, the steps off the balcony that goes straight to the beach access, the convenience to shopping and other things, and the short two hours and some change drive to Virginia. I loved discovering more of OBX and Virginia Beach, Virginia on this, my second stay in the OBX area. I hope to book Beverly's condo again. May God Bless.....

    Martin2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • The closeness of the ocean, the shooting stars, the warm morning sun on the deck with coffee and the evening board games made our vacation magical. I recommend this condo for exceptional hospitality and value. We will be back soon!

    Lindsay2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • the location is amazing. In the morning we could open the current to our bedroom to see beautiful sun rises and the beach is literally right outside your door

    Scott2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Fall asleep listening to the surf. Watch it out your bedroom and living room. Take a few steps to the beach. Cook anything because the kitchen is fully equipped. Nice touches like starter packs toulet paper, paper towels, dish and laundry soap, shampoo, bath soap. Well thought out beautifully decorated place with awesome amenities and hospitality in s beautiful location.

    Joann2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at The Blue Moon. Your place was perfect for our needs and the view was amazing. Enjoyed watching the sun rise off the deck while having my coffee. Close to lots of great restaurants. Food lion and Dollar Tree was just a few minutes away for those forgotten necessities! Will definitely recommend and look forward to coming back!

    Megan2019-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • The condo had a unique location. We could have breakfast on the terrace and watch the sea. The rooms were all very tastefully decorated. You just have to feel good in the "Blue Moon". We will come back.

    Bianca2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • This condo was well stocked, clean and the views were breathtaking. We will be recommending this rental to everyone we know. Amazing!

The community has a tennis court, a beach area on the sound (if you don't want to launch kites from the smaller area in front of Kiteborn), and private beach access across Hwy 12 for the ocean. The community has a tennis court, and its own private access to the ocean beach.
  • All our needs and expectations were met or exceeded. We cant wait to stay at Kiteborn again.

    Jack2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Convenient, comfortable and everything you come to OBX for. Jared’s place is dialed in.

    Ryan2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommended.

    Bartosz2020-01-12T00:00:00Z

    Nicholas2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Jared, Becca and I had a wonderful time at your gorgeous house during the off season! First off, I’d like to say that your house is beautiful and I love the touch ups/ renovations that you have made to the bathrooms and living quarters. The house is very clean, the amenities that you offered were very nice for both the beach, bathroom and kitchen. Rodanthe is very quite and peaceful especially, your little neighborhood! There is a a private beach right outside the back deck which is really nice to lay out and catch the sunset off the dock! We enjoyed having morning breakfast on the back deck during our mornings . However, there is a way bigger beach right on open waters about a 5 min walk away! The hot tub is a great addition to your stay for an evening or morning dip as well! We didn’t get to talk to Jared to much however, his co host is very sweet as well. She was very welcoming. Nonetheless we didn’t see them to often throughout the duration of the stay which can be nice at times since you feel much more alone but the brief interactions we did have were very nice. Cozy home, nice bed, very clean, nice outdoor kitchen and beautiful place to be!

    Colby2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place, no living room, however.

    Ann2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • This place was great! Great parking, great hot tub, great room, and great amenities. It was wonderful to wake up with a water view every day.

    Cassandra2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • The house is amazing! Pool table in the common room definitely got a lot of use from us. The hot tub on the porch overlooking the sunset was unreal. This place has everything you could want from a beach house.

    Happy Hours is a family & pet friendly sound side beach cottage conveniently located next to Hatteras Jacks tackle shop in Rodanthe, NC on Hatteras Island. In this well stocked 2 bedroom 1 ½ bathroom home relax & enjoy amazingly beautiful sunsets with a non-obstructed view of the sound, with just a short walk to the beach!
  • Such a great, cute little house! Very clean, many thoughtful touches such as provided dog crate, beach wagon, a binder with restaurants and activities et cetera. Walking distance to beach and gorgeous view over the sound. Great host in general! Definitely recommend this place!

    Johanna2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Happy Hours is a very sweet space. Megan had thought of everything. We wanted to cook and found all the tools we needed. The space was awesome for dogs. My dog spent most of his time hanging out in the enclosed porch. The beach is a little awkward to get to, but the sound is right next door. We are already planning our next trip :)

    Rebecca2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great house & great host. Anyone would live to stay in this immaculate pet friendly home. We will definately look it up for our next visit to Outbanks. Thanks Megan for your quick answers to all our questions & especially your hospitality. M Brown

    Mary2019-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • Megan was super attentive and made our stay very comfortable. Her home was perfect for us with the Sound behind the home and next door to a tackle shop (Hatteras Jacks) with people working there. Looking forward to returning!

    Victor2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • Megan’s place was the perfect place for our trip. We planned this very last minute and she accepted immediately. There was an issue with booking but that was not her fault, Air BnB double booked so we had to check out a day earlier than we planned, Megan called within minutes to advise us of the issue and was very apologetic. The access to the sound was steps away and the views were amazing! The house was very clean, she has a binder of things to do in the area, rules and expectations for leaving, and places to eat. I highly recommend this house and would stay there again. Thank you!

    Robin2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely the best airbnb I've rented to date. Megan's place is very clean and offers more amenities than any place I've ever rented via airbnb; she even provides amenities for your furbabies (an indoor kennel for their leisure). Megan has even taken the time to compile a guide book with any and everything you need to know about the rental, as well as, the surrounding attractions. I also enjoyed the books detailing the history of the OBX provided at the rental. We chose to stay in Rodanthe as sort of a midway point in order to visit all of the sites we had on our list, and Megan's place provided that opportunity. We traveled as far north as Corolla, and to the furthest point south we could go on Hatteras. We most definitely will be returning to the OBX, AND this will be our go to rental -provided it's available. Fellow Jeepers... You have to drive the beaches here!

    Tina2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • This is a happy and fun place to stay.

    Ruth2019-09-22T00:00:00Z

  • Dawn and her family and her friendly dogs offered us a warm welcome in their home. We had full use of their shared kitchen to make drinks etc. Their house is in a great location for exploring the Outer Banks.

    Peter2018-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic spot! Dawn, her husband and adorable baby are great to stay with. They have a very unique property and were such gracious hosts.

    Nick2018-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great place! Super close to the beach! Dawn was really nice and very responsive. Location was great. Close to restaurants and shops. The kids loved the bunk beds!

    Nicole2018-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • My 10-yr-old and I stayed a week in July and loved the place. He especially loved the pool and the dogs. The location is central to many activities north and south along the Outer Banks but is quieter than the larger towns such as Nags Head or Buxton. Beach and sound are within walking distance and the on-site pool is awesome. The host provides pool floats and toys. There is an outside shower to clean off after the beach. The room was just right and clean, very similar to a motel room but with more beds, cleaner, quieter, and more private. The kitchen was available but we didn't need to use it. The microwave and mini-fridge in the room were sufficient for our needs. We definitely want to stay here again for another Outer Banks stay.

    H2018-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • It's family-style living in a lovely B&B in progress. Lovely pool with deck make the property. You will feel a member of the family as soon as you walk in. Lovely mid-Outer Banks location allows you to head North or South. The beach is relatively convenient across the street.

    Christine2018-06-10T00:00:00Z
  • This space was perfect for our weekend getaway. We enjoyed the convenience of the in room tv (with netflix!), microfridge, beach chairs, and bathroom. The shared pool space is a really nice outdoor feature. Dawn is very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again.

    Lynn2018-06-03T00:00:00Z
  • We mostly booked this room for the pool + beach toy rentals (really wanted to try paddleboarding!) but as a hurricane was on its way shortly after our stay, it wasn't really beach weather. That said we still had a nice time, the house was close to many of the things we wanted to do and the beds were comfortable. Although it was never warm enough to get in the pool, I enjoyed hanging out in the pool area with the cat :) It's a basement room so be aware that it's not the quietest. Really my only complaint was that there was no hand soap at the sink but obviously that's not a huge deal.

    Sandra2017-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • We were surprised about the mini fridge and microwave in our room, and on top of that, Dawn is very generous to let us use her kitchen to cook. The location of Dawn's place allow us to access the beach and the sound with a short walk on both side, very convenient. Our son loved the bunk bed, and we enjoyed the pool very much. And Dawn's dogs and cat are the most behaving pets, we are very impressed and had a lot of fun hanging out with them.

  • Vino was a great host! He was very responsive to all of my questions. The house is great. My family needed a large house with a pool near the beach within a particular budget and this house checked those boxes. The wall to the beach was about 2 minutes and it’s not a far walk to the pier. Highly recommend renting from Vino.

    Liss2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean and well put together home with an amazing location

    Charles2019-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • This house was perfect for a large group. Some of the stores were closed because we did not visit during the peak season, but we anticipated this and still loved every minute of our stay. The house was very clean, the walk to the beach was unbeatable, and you can see the ocean from the hot tub. We would definitely want to stay here again.

    Kim2019-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • This house is the definition of bang for your buck. The house is really big and can easily accommodate large groups. The price is great compared to the other options nearby. The drive to the house is amazing, and the beach is 2 minutes away by foot. The house was sparkling clean. The kitchen had most of the utensils and dishes you would expect, and there were plenty enough for everybody. The host was very easy to get a hold of, and he made sure that the stay would be great for everyone. I highly recommend choosing to stay here for your next trip.

    Kshitij2019-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Carolina Breeze was pretty great. It's not fancy and it's not brand new, but it is a great value for beachside accommodation. It's our first time to the outer banks, and I'm so glad we didn't pick the bigger towns up north. Rodanthe is quiet and quaint. And in off-season, mostly closed so we felt like we had the beach to ourselves. We were able to house our extended family and still have room to breathe. The kitchen is very well outfitted for cooking 'big'. The dining table seats 11 or 12. The layered deck areas gave lots of outdoor options, and we loved the hot tub in the winter. Vino was a great host and communicated promptly and accurately. All in all, we would stay here again in a heart beat.

    Robyn2018-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • This house was a nice way to get our extended family together in a scenic location. It was a great place to prepare our Thanksgiving meals and all 11 of us could eat at one table. Thank you!

    William2018-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • This wonderful house was just as advertised and better than we expected. A small group of us stayed here for our mini college reunion. Some things we loved were: watching the sun set and rise—great location for that; the hot tub—great size; its proximity to the beach—just a short walk; the place was spotless clean; and Vino’s responsiveness to my questions and requests—very quick and friendly. The rooms were a good size and the common area was beautiful and big. We’re considering another stay here. We really loved this place! Highly recommend it!

The private entrance to the outside opens into the bathroom. You can take a small flight of stairs to get to the entrance deck, or there is also a handicap ramp for your convenience. Your guest suite is the second bedroom in my 2-bedroom home. I live here full-time and the house is very quiet. I do have guests occasionally. Note: there is no tv in this room, but there is wifi, so please bring your own laptop if you need your Netflix fix. There are two beach cruiser bikes available for your use as well as beach chairs and other necessities you may need to enjoy the beach. I offer private yoga sessions inside my home or out on the beach weather permitting. I also offer Reiki sessions and healthy homemade meals by request.
    The house is located at the end of a private drive. You can usually hear the waves crashing from the house. For those who have never been to this area, this is a very small town and does not have a big night life scene. This area is most enjoyed by those who like to play on the beach, explore the island, surf, kiteboard, paddleboard, kayak, sail, or otherwise enjoy nature, meet neat people, enjoy live music while watching the sunset, or having a bonfire under the stars. There are plenty of restaurants and stores in the village to enjoy. We are located within a very short walking distance to Hatteras Island Surf Shop for your watersports rental needs. We are about a 5 minute walk to Watermen's Bar and Grill, and 10-15 minute walk to Boardwalk South Restaurant, Waves Market and Deli, Atlantic Coast Cafe, Dairy Queen, and Sheila's Country Kitchen.
  • We stayed for 3 nights and loved it. Everything was as described. Provided condiments and toiletries were perfect. The bathroom is actually much bigger than it appears in the photos. The space worked very well for a couple! The short walk to the beach was very pleasant. We felt comfortable and safe the entire time. The bed was very comfortable, and the curtains in the bedroom did a great job blocking out the bright sun in the morning (if you like to sleep in!). We enjoyed the private back porch and loved hearing the ocean a few blocks away.

  • Loved the coziness, very neat and clean! Great place for us to have alot of privacy and closeness to everything!! We enjoyed our time there!

    Jeanne Annette2019-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • Great value for the money. A good place to stay as a base of operations for days (and evening) at the beach and exploring—we stayed 9 nights. The place and immediate area isn’t high end but it is literally “hidden away” inside of such a neighborhood and is very clean and comfortable. It has a real “locals” feel about it. Quick and nice walk to the beach., close to most everything you go to OBX for. Very good outdoor shower for rinsing off salt and sand. Nice deck with large picnic table and 2 lounge chairs—a good place to cook out if you like that. Lindsey was very nice, helpful with advice when asked,and respectful of our privacy. We will definitely return!

    Erroll2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • This place was very nice. We could sit outside and eat. There was a clothesline to hang our clothes. We were close to pea island which was a great nature refuge.

    Deb2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • Very comfortable and clean place two blocks from beach and restaurant in quiet neighborhood.

    Peter2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • The description of the property was spot on, Lindsy has prepared a local guide that is very helpful with navigating the area if you have never been to this part of the Outer Banks, she is available by phone should you have questions or problems, she makes the stay personable and so not to spoil anything you will have to experience that upon your arrival. Wi-fi is available and the bathroom and bedroom is more then adequate for one or a couple. There is no TV but I went down for a week to fish and it was good to get away from all of the electronic leashes that most of us are attached to. I would not hesitate to return and hope to do so next year, Lindsy is a first class hostess and will go out of her way to assist you. I’d rate her as a 5 star person.

  • Fabulous spot, prime location, great host! We loved everything about this place!

    Elizabeth2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • I had a wonderful stay here and Elizabeth was a great host! It is within short walking distances to the beach and some restaurants, which were included in her suggestions. You can drive about 15 min. To the lighthouse and it's a 15 min.walk or 3 min. drive to the pier. The outdoor shower was great, and there were thoughtful touches around the whole place. I would stay here again if I were to have the chance!

    Eleanor2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Elizabeth was a great host! We arrived the week after Dorian and the place had been under 4 ft of water and she had it all cleaned up and ship shape and ready for us. Nice quite street and only a 3 minute walk to the beach. Lots of amenities were close that can be walked to.

    Jim2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Quiet little retreat near the beach! it was perfect!

    Sam2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Elizabeth was lovely and very friendly and her place was an absolute wonderful first experience using Airbnb. It was cozy, cute, and private. And clean! Elizabeth made a cute little welcome “folder” that included menus, local tips, and everything we needed to know about our stay. A wonderful experience in a wonderful place and we plan on booking again next year!

    Charlotte2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • This place is AMAZING. My fiancé and I stayed here for 5 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. We brought our dog and she got along very well with Elizabeth's dog, they became best friends immediately. We used the grill outside every night and the seating area is comfortable. I read a review that complained about spiders and I have to say that with us staying there 5 nights that I saw one spider and it wasn't bigger than a dime. I would recommend bringing bug spray. The walk from the beach is very short. The shower had shampoo/conditoner/soap for us to use. There are plenty of places to eat or get a drink that are walking distance. The shower and bathroom are outside but it wasn't an inconvience, there is a light outside and lights around the shower for at night. I think my fiancé and I will be using this air bnb again!

    Lauren2019-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • It's a cozy space that's close to the beach and restaurants. Many days we did not use our car. Perfect for couples looking to get away. Would definitely book this space again. Elizabeth provided many beach necessities.

  • The house is close to the beach, very spacious. The surf was rough so the house having a hot tub made it so that my kids could still swim. That was amazing. We have never been to Avon or Hatteras. We were there as the high surf brought down the dunes and caused road closures. That made it a stressful end to the week. But Laurena made what could have been a terrible situation much much better and easier to deal with. We will be grateful to her for years to come.

    Brittaney2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • James and Laurena were the most wonderful host. They always replayed extremely promptly to any questions. Their home is a great location. An easy walk to the beach via the board walk. Less than 5 min. The kitchen was stocked with anything we needed. The home is beautiful and spacious. You can walk to Duck Donuts ( you may consider this good or bad) and the Food Lion. The gem is the perch on top of the house where you can see afar. We spent many hours there. I would rent this home again and would recommend it in a heartbeat. I cannot think of a single negative thing to say about the home or our experience.

    Cassandra2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, really enjoyed our stay

    Marsha2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great hosts! Amazing communication! Perfect location!

    Kim2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Our family thoroughly enjoyed our vacation at the Shellcastle. The kitchen is fully stocked and included a Crock Pot, Keurig coffee maker, and a griddle. The beds were comfortable and please note, there is a closet full of sheets, pillowcases, bath towels, and beach towels for the renter’s use. Not having to rent sheets will save you a minimum of $300! Each bedroom had extra pillows and blankets for your use. In return, wash and return everything the way you found it. This was a very nice convenience for those who do not want to pack and haul these bulky items with you while you travel. The kitchen table is very large and accommodated us comfortably. We brought a deck of playing cards, and the two card games called Phase 10 and Uno and spent our late night evenings at the kitchen table. Their large swimming pool and hot tub were awesome! We went to the Dollar store across the street and bought an inflatable ball to play volleyball in the pool after a hot day at the beach. There are tiki torches available for use at the pool/hot tub area to keep the insects and mosquitos away. If you need tiki torch fuel, we bought it across the street at Ace Hardware. There is a Duck Donuts and Food Lion across the street. If you like to listen to or want to partake in karaoke, go to the Froggy Dog and Lounge. It was held on Wednesday and Thursday nights beginning at 9:00 p.m. Lastly, James and Laurena were excellent hosts who quickly responded to our text messages and truly want you to enjoy your stay. I feel like we’re friends although we haven’t met. Thank you both for opening your beach home to allow us a much needed vacation of family time, fun, and relaxation. Cheers!

    Jennifer2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • James and Lauren's house was an excellent place for me and my family to stay. Would easily book it again in a heartbeat! Lots of amenities and close to the beach

    Andrew2019-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • Very comfortable beach house for young families. The location is excellent because a variety of stores and restaurants are within walking distance and so is the beach. We also took day trips to visit museums and take a dolphin cruise. Plenty to do if you need some time away from the sun. Don’t miss out on wading in the sound which is perfect for small children who are scared of ocean waves. We made full use of the pool and hot tub too! An ice cream truck drove by one evening while we were eating in the screened in porch on the deck. And we had a relaxing evening looking at the Milky Way from the top deck.

    Kara2019-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • Definitely a place to come visit. We brought two families with five young kids and it went very well. The pool is incredible for those moments when the beach is too windy or you need to make dinner but the kids still have some energy. The walk to the beach is not even a minute. The bedrooms are big and clean. The two bunk beds hold 4 kids. The terraces wrap the house so you can walk outside from almost every room. Every room has a TV with a roku. The captains watch (the tower on the roof) is made for pictures and sneaking away for a read. The street is not busy. There is a Food Lion, pizza, crabs diner, pharmacy, dollar general, Ace hardware, and a good souvenir shop within walking distance, less than a hundred yards. You will find that incredibly convenient. Loved the place and it’s perfect for kids.

  • Mandy’s place is spectacular, very clean and perfect for Hatteras getaway. She was very quick with her responses and it is obvious she cares about the experience her guest’s have. Would highly recommend to anyone going to Hatteras!

    Larry2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing time staying at Happy Ours. The outdoor space was wonderful and we were able to walk to the beach! The kitchen was nice and the washer and dryer is a huge plus! Amanda and family have created a great space and I’m so glad they are able to share it!

    Grace2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect little getaway. My wife and I had a great stay during the off-season. Amanda was a perfect balance of being there and not there. She was quick to give ideas when we asked, but did not intrude in any way. She really is a “super” host. The place is very clean with everything you need. We cooked breakfast each day and made lunch for our excursions. There’s not a lot open during the off-season and therefore we had to create our own adventures so take that into account if you go as we did ... during the off-season.

    Doug2020-02-19T00:00:00Z

  • Happy Ours is an immaculate, private one bedroom apartment with all the touches of home, and a convenient little kitchen and laundry area to make cooking in or beach going easy. I was there alone, but wished my spouse had been along to enjoy the space and the Outer Banks. I had some work to catch up on too, and the WIFI and quiet workspace made that a pleasure too, with the only distraction being some interesting songbirds that favor the neighborhood. Enjoy your stay!

The great room is equipped with a flat screen HDTV, DVD, and CD. Enjoy the DVDs, books, magazines and games that we provide. The master bedroom on this floor has access to the deck that wraps around three sides of the second floor. There is a gate on the deck that can be locked to keep the young ones within site. The hot tub is located on the southwest corner of the deck and adjoins the screened porch with furniture that runs the full length of the back of the house. The third floor has two bedrooms and a large, shared bathroom with separated toilet and tub. One of the bedrooms has two twin beds. The other is a large king bedroom with its own private deck providing views of the ocean and the sound. All bedrooms have flat screen televisions and DVD players as well. Our keyless entry system gets you started on vacation as soon as you arrive on the island. There is a service that can do food shopping you and have it waiting in the refrigerators when you arrive. Located oceanside in a quiet, safe area on a private lane. Less than 5-minute walk from front door to the ocean with no streets to cross. Wide white sand beaches with sparkling water. ALSO, it is less than 5-minute walk from front door to sound side. We are located on a narrow peninsula, so there is ocean on one side and sound on the other. See the ocean from the third floor deck. Beautiful views of Cape Hatteras Wildlife Refuge. Decks are covered in several areas, so you can be outside even if it drizzles. The second floor deck gives you the option of sitting in the sun, sitting in the shade, sitting under a covered deck, or sitting on the screened porch. Dry entry under the house. Day-use park within walking distance on sound side perfect for kite boarding, paddle boarding, kayaking, and swimming for small children - water shallow and calm. Perfect for floaties. Like to run, ride a bike or just walk - awesome walking/bike path that goes for miles. Dockside Crabs for freshest seafood caught locally. Waves Market and Deli has terrific sandwiches and speciality items along with many grocery options. Lisas Pizza is amazing. Forbes Candy/Coffee at MP 40 in the Kitty Hawk Kites complex makes the best coffee on the island. All local owned restaurants in town with friendly customer service. Local owned ice cream parlor and fruit stands. Live bands at Waterman's on the weekends. Either fish at the nearby pier in Rodanthe, fish in the surf, rent a charter boat for the sound, or go deep sea fishing. Climb the Hatteras Lighthouse, the tallest in North America, just 30 minutes south. Take the free ferry to Ocracoke Island to see wild horses, explore the quaint fishing village, or take a family bike tour. Or take the kids to the aquarium in Manteo. There is so much to do and see in the area. Avoid the development and bustle of the rest of the Outer Banks and come relax, swim in the ocean, and enjoy a week of gorgeous sunrises and sunsets.
    Our home is adjacent to the exclusive South Beach Community of Salvo on the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. We are located on a private lane. There is one house in front of us, one beside us, and one katycorner. There is no one behind us. - There are views of the Atlantic Ocean and Pamlico Sound. There are numerous ways to reach the beach from the house - via an established walking path, or over a wooden boardwalk, or even with your four-wheel drive vehicle (we are one tenth of a mile away from drivable access.) Any way you choose to walk, there is no highway to cross. Hatteras Island is one of the few places where you can build a fire on the beach (free permit required) - something everyone will always remember.
  • This home is even better than the description. Location to beach perfect. We had a couple normal issues during our stay and they where responded to and remedied immediately! Great family vacation!

  • Wonderful place to stay

    Julie2019-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • This house is extremely clean, updated, and in an excellent location. It was an easy drive to Buxton (for apple uglies) and to Manteo (for pirate adventures). The layout was perfect for a family of four, along with a few days with grandparents! It was stocked with everything to make our stay comfortable. Our second year here was a success!

    Juliet2018-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • excellent stay. Gail was available early and often with helpful information. a great host for a great house

    Pierre2018-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • The house was lovely and very well situated. The kitchen is well appointed : we made our own fish tacos and were able to have breakfast in every morning. The beach wagon, chairs and umbrella were so useful and the walk through the neighborhood and over the dunes put us "right" at the beach! My husband and I had the very comfy king with feather bed and open balcony door, while our 2 year old and 6 month old were just across the hall. That put us on the 3rd floor and gave my parents the 2nd floor master with en suite bathroom, so everyone was able to spread out. The only thing we had to do was "rent" towels, and the same company that cleans the unit had them there for us on arrival. The key pad door is just brilliant for both a private check in and not worrying about having enough keys to come and go separately. We used the screen porch and the spa each evening, and the heated outdoor shower kept us from tracking in the entire beach first! As another reviewer mentioned, we were supposed to have rain for most of our trip, but we still managed to take my parents to the Buxton light house, go birding at pea island, dine al fresco at 3 different restaurants and go to the beach every single day, so don't let the report for your time there get you down!

    Nicole2018-05-23T00:00:00Z
  • Gem of a guest house just steps from the sand and sound.

    James2018-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great location! The kids loved being able to walk to beach or sound. Very clean, relaxing accommodations. The house had everything we needed to make meals, but we loved exploring area restaurants, too. The area is perfect if you want to stay a bit away from the crowds. We loved it, and are already talking about when we might want to come back!

    Krisanne2018-04-07T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed here with our one year old and three year old children. The house was wonderful- great layout, updated, and very clean (the cleanest house we've rented in the OBX since we started coming a decade ago!). It was stocked with everything we needed to be comfortable. There was plenty of space, and we didn't even use the bottom floor. The views from the top deck were beautiful! The walk to the beach access point took a few minutes, and though the walk across the dunes wasn't short, there was a wooden walkway which was a lifesaver! All in all, took about 10 minutes with two small dawdling kids. All in all, it was very easy from check-in to check-out. This may be the first house we consider renting again. Highly recommended!

    Welcome to the beach :) One of the last untouched beaches on the east coast, we are home to miles of federally protected spaces that are ripe for exploration Located about 200 yards from the ocean front, this bedroom has a private bathroom and private access to the porch. Rodanthe is a small village and it has that laid back beach feeling. Slow down and relax awhile.
    The bedroom has an attached bathroom and a private entrance to the porch, however the porch is a shared space. The room is simple and clean as well as the bathroom. The porch is where the hot tub is located. You are welcome to use the washer and dryer that are located on the same floor. The room is equipped with a mini fridge, a microwave, a coffee pot, and a Roku television, so all you need to do is log onto your favorite streaming service and pick up where you left off at home.
    Rodanthe is beautiful because the beaches are significantly less crowded than the northern beaches. If you wanted total seclusion, you would only need to drive about 5 miles into the refuge to park and walk. Or you can walk to the end of the street and take a dip in the morning (that's what I like to do). There is a great break right out front of the house for those that surf (or want to learn!) and about 400 yards down HWY 12 is our community's new skate park. If you are a skater, I highly suggest checking it out. Fun lines!
  • Very clean room, simple check-in. Great value for the price. We had a great stay on OBX.

    Elizabeth2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful location and wonderful host

    Maxi2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Abbe’s place, and I would definitely go back again! Abbe was very accommodating, and everything was set up perfectly upon our arrival with everything we could have needed.

    Augustus2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean place, I was pleased with the layout and it was nice having a door from the room that leads to the hot tub and balcony. Host was very quick and nice with responses and made us feel welcome. Also very close to the beach and there is a good selection of seashells in the area.

    Zach2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Quaint spot near the beach. Very clean and check in was super simple.

    Parker2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Really easy check in process. The room had everything we needed, and the house is in a really cool location. Made for a great and unique stop on our road trip.

    Seth2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • The room was exactly what I was looking for. Great price!

    Kevin2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • This was a great weekend trip! Quiet, and well sized space for a relaxing and romantic get away. The room was in tip top shape, with great access to the hot tub and to the beach. We enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub on chilly nights and sea shell hunting during the day. The local coffee shops and food do not disappoint and the complimentary coffee in the room was excellent! Abbe thought of everything we could need, from plenty of linens, to easy access laundry, utensils, mini fridge, hangers and a drying rack in the closet, plenty of toilet paper and hand soap, a microwave and access to all our favorite smart TV packages! (Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, etc.). The space was squeaky clean upon arrival and we enjoyed the privacy of a corner room. Thanks again for having us!

    Please note pandemic response efforts may affect bookings in April '20. On private street in Salvo, NC, ocean side of Hwy NC12 between milepost 41 & 42. Free parking, prvt entrance from stairs and pvt deck. EXCLUSIVE use of hot tub. Private bathroom with jacuzzi tub and separate shower. Free WIFI. Short walk to beach path at end of street. Close to stores. Exclusive use of bicycles, beach chairs, umbrella, cooler and gas grill. 3 min drive to world-class kiteboarding. Max 2 guests. No pets
    The space is very versatile as it can be used as a getaway for 2 and also as an individual retreat. The private deck has a view of a wooded lot next door as well as the pond across the street. Access to room thru a private entrance. Remainder of house is accessed separately. The privacy cannot be overstated. There is a hot and cold water outside shower stall at ground level. It is great to use after a nice ocean swim or day at the beach.
    The private street has a combination of permanent residences, private summer homes, and vacation rental properties. Because the street ends at the beach path, it has no pass- thru traffic. This makes for a normally quiet neighborhood with very little traffic, even in summertime.
  • Always a pleasure to AirBnb with Birgitta. Such a lovely person.

    Kelley2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • A very clean apartment, Birgitta ‘s place is excellent!

    Larry2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Birgitta has always been a super host! I would highly recommend everyone to stay there. You couldn’t ask for a better hostess! My husband and I always spend our anniversary/birthday there! She’s very attentive to all your needs and the space is super clean! We love soaking in the hot tub after a long evening out. Can’t wait till next year to go back!

    Morina2019-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • Birgitta is an outstanding host! She is very kind, thoughtful, and caring. She’ll give you all the privacy that you want, but also makes you feel that she is always there if you need something. The listing further comes short in presenting how wonderful this accommodation is. It includes a nearby beach access, beach essentials, indoor/outdoor hot tub, bikes and much more. As a result, we felt very comfortable and loved every second of our stay. If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing island getaway in the Outer Banks, this is the perfect place.

    Martin2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Brigitta and Jim's place is the greatest, this was our 3rd year staying there.. we keep returning because we love the space, its perfect for us, its close to the beach, its has everything we need, they have beach chairs, umbrella, and a cooler you can use and not have to tote your own or buy anything... its clean, private, we love the hot tub, they know all the good places to go eat and the best beaches... we love the host they are amazing .. for example, when I lost my wedding band on the beach in the sand thinking it was gone FOREVER, I told Brigitta I had lost it, she ask us to take her and Jim to the exact place we were on the beach the day before.. ( we were leaving that day ) so on the way out of town we took them there.. Less than 2 hours later I recieved a text with a pic... saying FOUND IT !!!!! they went above and beyond and found my ring... How amazing is that ? That's is just the type of people they are.. so sweet and caring .. we love this place and will return again and again.. no need to stay anywhere else while in Salvo..

    Kim2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. Would definitely stay again.

    Gerard2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had never used Airbnb before. This was a great experience. I highly recommend Birgitta’s place. It was very clean and well appointed. The location was perfect for touring lighthouses. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

    Michele2019-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I love this place! We spent two nights and didn't want to leave. Birgitta and Jim are amazing hosts. They are super friendly and their place is spotless with many unique touches. She has really thought of everything! On a scale from 1-5, we would rate this place a 6! Thank you Birgitta and Jim. We look forward to stay at your place again in the future.

  • Wonderful stay! Awesome spot and an adorable tiny home.

    Sydney2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Had such an amazing time. They made the whole weekend amazing and were super easy to work with. Totally recommend

    Dallin2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome tiny house! Neat as a pin and my wife is still going on about how cute it is decorated. More importantly, hosts are very gracious and accommodating.

    William2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • This place is awesome. Open kitchen/living space downstairs, loft/bedroom upstairs. Clean, cute decor, a perfect place to refresh after time at the beach.

    Eric2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • Sea la Vie was a beautiful tiny home with so many cute decorations. It was the perfect space for a weekend getaway.

    Dana2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • What a precious little gem this tiny house is! My husband and I celebrated our 28th anniversary there yesterday and we were beyond pleased with it and with our very gracious hosts. Thank you, Eryn & Tony, we hope to be able to stay again one day!

    Robin2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Very cute and homey tiny house right next to the beach! Eryn and Tony made things easy and were very helpful. An amazing stay. Thank you!

    Erin2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • This home is beautiful and perfectly designed and decorated. Despite the small space, they’ve found every bit of storage places available. I felt at home the minute we walked in. I love the earlier check in time which is so rare for beach places. The stairs are Celebes designed so they take up as little space as possible, but are steep and narrow. My husband is 6 foot and a big guy and he has no problem getting up and down them, and he could stand up straight in the bedroom. We were only there 5 hours when the island was evacuated, and we were extremely disappointed. Eryn gave us a full refund. We will be back because it’s a beautiful place with very easy access to the beach. Thank you for sharing this gem with everyone.

On the back of the house near the creek, live oaks thrive giving you privacy like non other while enjoying a soak in your private hot tub. There is Wi-Fi in the house, and TV equipped with a Roku stick for streaming TV such as YouTube & Netflix etc.

  • Perfect location and an awesome hot tub. We had a wonderful stay. Would highly recommend.

    Matt2020-03-09T00:00:00Z

    Marissa2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic location for this area. One of the few places with a hot tub too. Need I say more?

    Joshua2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great location plus the jacuzzi was a great benefit.

    Tim2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • We went to the OBX to spend Christmas. We were looking for quiet, comfortable and close to the ocean. Daniel's cottage definitely delivered and was above and beyond what we expected. It was perfect for our furbabies (two labs). The kitchen was a great place to prepare meals. We spent many evenings in the hot tub watching the stars. Everything was very clean and comfortable in the cottage. We were a short walk from the beach in a private cul de sac, which means that it was quiet when we wanted to relax. It felt like a well loved and lived in home, not just a rental. Daniel left lots of little extras for us, such as toilet paper, laundry soap and dryer sheets (it was perfect to have a washer and dryer right there), dish soap, paper towels, etc. The creek behind the house drew some beautiful heron into our sights. The property is large and well taken care of. Daniel painted a beautiful picture of his home and everything was at least a little better than what we expected. Thank you for a wonderful place to spend our first married Christmas together.

    Christi2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • The house was beautifully located and really clean.

    Lisa2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Great house and super clean, in a quiet street with friendly neighbors. Quick walk to beach and had all we needed! The couches and beds were super comfortable! Hot tub and the beach cruisers were a nice touch. If you love the stars (clear night you can see the milky way) and beautiful beach scenery all around in a peaceful place away from it all, Avon is the spot!! Gidgets restaurant was nice and a food lion for whatever you need to cook at home is a mile down the road. Beaches are stunning!!! Can’t wait to come back!!

    Pet friendly, affordable, studio efficiency. Anyone and everyone welcome! Walking distance to the beach and sound. Restaurants and shops within walking distance. Friendly walking path along Hwy 12. Great place for couples, friends, surfers, kiteboarders, nature lovers, and beach lovers. Awesome location to kick back and chill. Extra fee for pets. Please let the host know when requesting dates. This is an apartment/ efficiency located directly under my house. Enclosed outside shower.
    There is a path at the end of my street that takes you to the beach. The street is mostly locals and is usually quiet. I have had reviews that the location is not accurate. The room is located in the village of Waves on Hatteras Island Oceanside of Hwy 12. Five minute walking distance to the beach. I do have a roku tv . I do not have cable.
    The neighborhood here is small but busy during the summer.
  • Lynn is amazing. The space is perfect. Close to the beach. Very clean. And everything you need. I love and miss the outdoor shower. Thank you so much Lynn

    Cheryl2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, comfortable bed and cool temperature. Nice on a hot summer day. Loved the outdoor shower. Parking in the carport was great as well. Kept the truck cool and if it rained (which it did) everything stayed dry. Definitely will stay here again

    Tonya2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice well equipped room. Ideal location and close to everything. The outdoor shower is great. Lynn is available as needed for us.

    Breathtaking ocean views, two relaxing decks, a pool table, bikes and kayaks, beach-going equipment...who could ask for more at Hidden Haven! Peaceful blues and greens surround as you gaze at the sea and watch the dolphins play from the main room.
    Oceanside beach house with breathtaking water views and an easy walk to the beach! Dolphins playing in the ocean are easy to spot from the large glass doors in the great room. Large open living and dining area at the top of the house. Plenty of seating for families to gather. Double decks and skylights! Game room with pool table, foosball, big screen TV, dart board, etc. Oceanside beach home in lovely Avon, NC (Kinnakeet) with easy beach access. Watch the dolphins play from the upper deck! Two queen bedrooms open to the lower deck for sea breezes in the morning and ocean sounds in the evening. Comforting blues and greens bring peace and tranquility for a relaxing ocean side vacation. Peaceful and relaxing. 2 Queen bed rooms, 1 bunk room with a bunk and single bed (3 beds), 1 double room including a double and single bed. Accomodates 10 people to sleep. Newly renovated bathrooms and a new beautiful game room with pool table will add to your enjoyment of our Hidden Haven.
    You're on island time in historic Kinnakeet, NC! There is something for everyone to enjoy on Hatteras Island. From Hidden Haven, it's the beach right over the dune where you can swim, boogie board, collect shells, fly kites, sunbathe, fish, or simply relax with a good book from the provided selection under a beach umbrella. In the evening as the sun goes down, wander back down to the beach for some quality family time roasting marshmallows on the beach bonfire as you listen to the peaceful wave songs. Turn the other way from Hidden Haven and take a very short walk to Cups & Cones, either for an early morning coffee or an after-dinner ice cream cone and outdoor movie. If dinner out is in your plans, go right up the street a few feet and try the Froggy Dog (because who doesn't want to say they ate at a place with a name like that?). Other amazing restaurants are in driving distance, like the award-winning Bros. Sandwich Shop and the Mad Crabber. Or just order a pizza, but you can do that at your own home! Water sports abound, both in the waves and on the sound. Launch the kayaks into the sound and explore the Pamlico Sound by paddling. Head over to Ocean Air Sport to rent more kayaks, or have a lesson on a paddle board. Kite boarding is popular, or try the jetovator! Harbor Sailing is a memory the kiddos won't soon forget, and for the more adventurous, grab a jet ski and hit the sound with the need for speed! Combine different interests by heading to the Avon Pier, which history buffs and fisherman alike will enjoy. The fisherman who are regulars on the pier are always willing to talk as they reel in croakers and ocean trout, or try your own hand at it by renting the gear for around ten bucks. Speaking of history, Avon was originally called Kinnakeet and many will still use that name today. Check out the Graveyard of the Atlantic museum or the Hatteras Lighthouse, or head over to the Native American & Natural History museum a few minutes south. Taking the ferry to Ocracoke Island for the afternoon is a trip you won't soon forget. Search for the British Cemetery and discover its history...and you will be standing on land that is officially British! Ocracoke boasts its own light house. If water sports aren't in the cards, bicycles are a great way to get around Avon. Mini golf and Go Karts is found in Frisco. Shoppers will find many places to browse and buy, unique gift shops, beach shops, and wine shops like The Fisherman's Daughter, Sandcastles, or Island Spice & Wine...and of course, the Dollar Tree. Those creative people will find craft studios like Kinnakeet Clay Works, the Glass Bead, or Studio 12. Adults can head to the Koru Spa in the day and then meet up at The Comedy Club in the evening. In historic Kinnakeet, although there is plenty to see and do, take the time to just sit on the deck and listen to the sea songs and be glad you're there with the people you love.
  • Had a great stay at Hidden Haven. The house was very clean and welcoming with plenty of space. The upper level floor had amazing views of the ocean and we could hear the waves at night. Everything you need for the beach is available in the shed and the beach is just a short walk away. Another great point is that it is dog friendly so we were able to bring our dogs with us. We really enjoyed our stay and OBX. I highly recommend staying here.

    Erin2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Hidden Haven! It was a fantastic location, we loved hanging out on the deck and watching dolphins. It’s just a few steps from the beach and a few steps away from a great breakfast spot. We felt like we had plenty of space to spread out and relax. Will certainly come back!

    Brien2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • A great place on the beach.

    Kent2019-11-19T00:00:00Z

    Randilynn2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely family friendly home just a short walk to the beach. Rented for family to stay for the weekend to attend our daughter’s wedding. They enjoyed their stay so much! Classic beach house with great views and a space perfect to hang out, relax, and enjoy the island life. Clean, maintained home and the owner is very friendly and accommodating! The short walk to Cups and Cones straight up the street is an added bonus!

  • What you see is what you get. The view was spectacular, and we felt at home the entire time we were there. What a perfect home by the beach where you can unwind, relax, and enjoy the beauty of the Outer Banks!!!

  • My family and I had a great stay at Hidden Haven! Very clean space with plenty of room. The third floor was perfect for family dinners and hanging out. Short walk to the beach and an easy drive to restaurants or beach access. Kimberly responded very quickly to any questions I had and was very friendly! Would definitely stay again!

  • Jenni’s place has great location for exploring the island with easy access to the beach l. Would recommend for those looking to spend some time on the island.

  • Great location to town and to the beach. Night spot for a couple’s getaway. Enjoyed riding the bike!

  • Great spot for one or two people. Close to the beach & other activities in Avon. Very accommodating host!

    Dale2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • This is a wonderful stay. Very cute apartment with so many loving touches. The home is very clean and there are amenities which give you freedom to eat in or out. She is a very short walk to the beach and the scenery is beautiful. She is also a short ride to most anything you want to see and do. The Vintage Mermaid was a great choice for us. We hope to go back again soon.

    Heather2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • Jenni’s place is perfect for your next beach getaway! It’s right next to the ocean just as the description says and is a clean, quiet retreat from those long, sunny, and sandy days. There is a mermaid theme all throughout the cottage/apartment that was very thoughtfully done and added that extra charm. I absolutely loved staying here and hope to be back soon!

    Elizabeth2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • The place was so cute and comfy and clean. The mermaid art really made me happy! It is right next to the beach and there was never a crowd. We couldn't have asked for anything better! Jenni answered all of my questions very quickly but also gave us space to enjoy our trip. Lovely host! We will definitely stay here when we come back!

    Welcome to the “OBX Treehouse” formerly known as “Opus Amoris” only steps away from one of the nicest beaches in the Outer Banks north of the pier in Avon. It is also a short walk or bike ride to several restaurants, shops, activities and bars. It is a 2 bedroom house with 1 full bathroom and one half bathroom and outdoor shower. We also have a 55” 4K Smart TV in the living room with a queen size air mattress. Please let me know if you have any questions or want any recommendations. Thank you!
    The “OBX Treehouse” (name inspired by young boy walking to beach who complimented us on our “treehouse”) is only steps from one of the nicest/most protected sections of beaches in OBX north of the pier in Avon. It is also a short walk/bike ride to everything you need such as several restaurants and bars, grocery store, live music, spa, gym/fitness classes, outdoor yoga, fish and tackle, general/beach stores, wine/beer and liquor, the pier, family activities etc. Our cozy tree house has two bedrooms (master with queen bed and a guest room with full/twin bunk bed as well as a queen size air mattress in the living room). The living room has a 55” 4K Smart TV and both bedrooms have cable TV’s with premium channels such as HBO, Showtime etc. There is one full bathroom and one half bathroom as well as an outdoor shower and laundry room.
    This is the best neighborhood in the entire Outer Banks in my humble opinion and that is why I bought here. I looked at houses all over the Outer Banks and fell in love with Avon. My neighbors are all super friendly, and I can walk/ride a bike anywhere I need to go such as restaurants, the gym/spa, outdoor fitness classes such as yoga, family activities, bars/nightlife and live music, grocery store, beer/wine/liquor store, great breakfast/lunch and ice cream/dessert spots, fish and tackle, general store for beach gear/supplies etc. You can literally park your car when you arrive and not get in it again until you leave if that’s what you want. However, you can also 4 wheel drive or horseback ride on the beach and take the free ferry over to Okracoke or check out the light house and some of the super friendly cafes such as The Dancing Turtle which is one of our favorite coffee spots on the island.
  • The place was exactly as described in the listing. It was comfortable and Jacob was helpful with any questions we had. He was also generous to provide us with local tips and things to do.

    Rahul2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • It was our first time using Airbnb. We had an amazing time. The location was unbeatable. Jacob was an outstanding host and we will definitely return.

    Erin2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location on the beach. House is very well outfitted in the kitchen, comfy living room, and clean bathrooms. Easy checkin and Jacob offered great recommendations for local food and drinks. Only issue was the internet was down, but we didnt really need it. Awesome beach house!

    Joshua2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely wooden and rounded house just behind the dune: a good base camp to explore the outer banks! In between a wooden lighthouse and a shelter in the tree for our kids!

    Stéphane2019-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot next to the beach. Perfect for our family. Really enjoyed.

    Tim2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • The treehouse is such a cute, round home! It was perfect for me, my husband and our 2 year old daughter. You can't see the ocean from the house, the dunes are in the way but there is a nice public beach access one house down. Sitting out on the front porch was very nice to listen to the waves. The beds are comfortable and theres a really nice TV in the living room! We had some trouble with the door and locked ourselves out when we went out on the porch because the door locked behind us. We called Jacob and he gave us the code for the spare set of keys and it was handled immediately! We loved Avon, the house is on a road with other rentals and there are some shops and a DQ. It was very windy while we were there and so we may try to go earlier in the year next year! Would definitely recommend the treehouse for the price. It was clean, just some dust on the walls and such that gave us some allergies but overall, a very nice house.

    Amber2019-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • It’s not a 5 star resort. It’s a little beach shack right over the beach dunes from the ocean and within walking distance of DQ, Froggy Dogs and a pretty great breakfast cafe. It was just what we needed. A place to shower and sleep with the occasional meal at home. It was easy to get to and from the beach. The deck was completely closed in. This allowed us to enjoy the outdoor space while our 1 and 3 year old played without us having to worry. You can’t see the water because of the high dune but, you get to watch the sunrise over the sand. If you wanted to watch it over the water it’s a quick 30 second/one minute walk to the water. The outdoor shower was great allowing you to wash off before coming into the house and it had hot water plumbing outdoors! That was pretty sweet. There’s also a smart tv. Easy to use with streaming services if you want to avoid the haste of cable. WiFi was very fast. It did go out on us. We notified Ryan in the evening and by the time we woke up it was up and running. I recommend this great little bungalow treehouse to small families or singles who want to be beach front while leaving all the tourist nonsense behind. I give this host and home 5 stars because you get exactly what you pay for with a very hospitable host (Ryan).

    Dmitriy2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect place for a beach vacation. Clean, cute and cozy. Literally behind a sand dune from the Atlantic Ocean. One of our fave night time activities was to sit on the deck, looking at the billions of stars and listening to the sound of the waves. If you get a permit, you can also have a bonfire on the beach. And Dairy Queen is right across the road - what more could you want? Would definitely stay here again.

    Welcome to Better Surf Than Sorry! The name says it all. Are you ready for your dream vacation or weekend retreat? Well look no further. This beach house has everything you will need for an unforgettable beach escape. The house overlooks a large pond and it's just a short walk to a semi-private beach. 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths (1 of which is handicap accessible) sleeps up to 10 people. Perfect location for Wind Surfing, Kiteboarding, Surfing, Kayaking, Fishing, or just hang on the beach.
    This beautiful home with private pool and just a 5 minute walk to the ocean is normally rented for full weeks only from June to September. Along with the 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths you have an elevator, outside shower, hot tub (that seats 7), private solar heated pool (solar heating only runs from May through October), Game room with a Puck Hole table (like shuffleboard), full size foosball table, refrigerator, and wet bar. In the main living area there are lots of board games, jigsaw puzzles, DVD’s, and books. Outside there is a basketball goal. It’s just a short walk to a semi-private beach (neighborhood access only). In 2015 Cape Hatteras was voted #5 on Top 10 U.S. beaches. The back decks overlook a large lake full of wildlife and nice distant view of the sound. You will have unforgettable sunset views, and starting late in the day you’ll be amazed at the symphony that all the little critters in the lake produce. * House is located in quite neighborhood with close proximity to Sound and Ocean access to world class kite boarding and surfing spots. On the East Coast, the best place for surf is on the Outer Banks, and this region is renowned as one of the best surfing destinations from New York to Florida. There are a number of other water sports on the Outer Banks, including hang gliding, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, surf and pier fishing, and crabbing. Also close by are Bodie Island and Cape Hatteras light houses, several piers, museums, marinas, quaint little shops and excellent restaurants.
    The house is located in the small quite neighborhood of Wimble Shores. There are a few locals the live there all year. Our neighborhood and the two others beside us have the only access to the beach.
  • Very beautiful and clean home!! Great location!! Only mins to walk to the beach. Easy check-in and check-out!!!!

    Abby2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • The house is in such a great location and close to many tour attractions, places to eat, and grocery stores overall great convenience. A great house for families or big groups, plenty of space!

    Delaina2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great place and location. We went over New Year’s and had a great time walking the beach and star gazing. House is really well laid out and the good selection of movies, games and puzzles is a nice touch. Check-in was easy and everything need to check-out was clear. Highly recommended!

    Evan2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • This is my second stay at Better Surf Than Sorry. This is my second great review for this place. Don't second guess yourself on this gem. It's not planned directly in the midst of all the tourist traps. It's a quick, easy walk to the ocean without the high rates of being oceanfront. Forgot something? No problem, take a quick walk over to the Dollar General that's right around the corner. You can walk down to watch the sunrise over the ocean or walk down to the sound side to watch the sunset. Perfect location, tons of amenities.

    Sarah2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great stay. The family really enjoyed the hot tub and other amenities. The location is great. There was hardly anyone on the beach and you could just drive a couple miles down the road to the National Seashore for beaches even emptier. Between walking the beach, checking out some of the local stores, and a very extensive movie selection, there was plenty of things to do. Chris was very helpful and quick to response to our many questions. He even proactively offered to let us stay when the road leaving the island was closed. Luckily the roads were cleared on our checkout day, but we really appreciated Chris's offer.

    Richard2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Really great house, really close to the beach, great view of the lake. Highly recommended.

    Jaime2019-09-22T00:00:00Z

    Aaron2019-05-24T00:00:00Z
  • Chris' home is beautiful and very well kept! Having the private pool, hot tub and elevator made it such a great time! The walk to the beach was short and extremely convenient! 5 stars all the way!!!

    Waterfront! Instant detox. The house sits right on Pamlico sound with private beach access, million dollar sunset views, hot tub, kayaks, standup paddle board, bikes on premises, membership to nearby Gym, Pool & Tennis Club as well as nearby Koru Spa & yoga studio and Avon Pier fishing pass (all these amenities are within 0.5-1.5 miles) - save hundreds of dollars in fees for these services. We pay for half of our guests' required travel insurance costs. Sunday check-in and 7 day min June-August.
    The house sits right on Pamlico sound. Private beach/water access, million dollar views, stunning sunsets, hot tub, wrap around deck. Perfect soundfront location for a relaxed vacation - unwind and recharge! Windusrfing, kiteboarding, kayaking, sailing, fishing, birding, surfing abound - this is a watersportsman's, fisherman's and nature lover's dream! Set up and water launch right from the backyard - no need to pack your gear and drive every time you want to play on the water :) Can't beat that! Free swimming pool, tennis courts access for your entire group with our membership. Gym membership at the newly open “Raise the Bar” 1/2 a mile away. Avon Pier. Free access for your entire group. Open Good Friday to December 1st Included with Koru Spa membership: Yoga by the beach, June 4th - August 29th. Save over $450 in weekly kayak, SUP and bike rentals by using ours. A very serene and relaxed setting to unwind and recharge! Very quiet, family friendly. Quaint fisherman village with sailboats and fresh catch for your family barbeque. We will pay for half of our guests' required travel insurance costs (generally $50-$100). Protect your trip cost for a small fee. Most of our guests are large families coming to the Island to reconnect and have fun. When live interferes (illness, legal responsibilities, weather etc.), this small investment goes a long way to provide some peace of mind. Our hot tub offers 180 degree views of the sound and is a great place to relax and enjoy the view of the water and a star lit skies. Our jets are on the mellow side, so if you are looking for a tub that has very strong tub jets, this one doesn’t. House is normally rented for full weeks, Sunday to Sunday during high season (June-August.) Our property is located right on the sound. The advantages are the beautiful views, water sports, wild life etc. The disadvantage of owning a waterfront property is the damage that hurricanes and storms cause. One of the damages is erosion of the grounds by powerful water action during storms. We have a bulkhead and tall marsh grasses to protect the grounds from being dug up an taken away by the storms. If you are looking for a manicured lawn with short grass we unfortunately won’t be able to provide that. Check in at 4:30 pm, check out at 10 am. Sound vs. Ocean side... Folks often ask me why I choose to be on the sound side instead of the ocean. It's a matter of personal preference, of course. Sound side is more serene, relaxed and quiet and you don't feel like you are sharing your vacation with hundreds of other beach goers. Having said that if you want to mix and match you can always cross to the Ocean side - takes 5 min. I am not an early riser, so even though I love sunrises on the ocean side I am not usually up that early to enjoy them, especially when on vacation. This makes the sunset displays off our deck one of the biggest highlights of this location. If you have children in your party, depending on how old they are being on the Sound side can be a great advantage - no violent waves or rip currents to worry about. They can simply walk into the calm water and swim, play and enjoy. You also get the homey feel and a contained space where it is easier to watch the kids as it's just you and your family on the beach. Teenagers may want to do some kayaking, windsurfing, sailing or kiteboarding - all better suited for the sound side. I also like the fact that you can walk to the local fishing village, watch the sailboats and the simple life that goes on there - just a different feel, more local, less touristy. It's a matter of preference. If you or your kids/family are into kitesurfing/windsurfing/kayaking/sailing - Sound side is the place to be! Prevailing winds are side-on-shore SW and the water is relatively shallow making it a safer environment for the wind/water sport enthusiasts to enjoy their hobbies. For surfers on the other hand, Oceanside location is certainly the place to be. All that said, some folks prefer Oceanside locations and there are certainly plenty of gorgeous spots to choose from! Those are usually quite a bit more expensive though. About the neighborhood: Avon is Rustic and full of energy. It is a kiteboarding and windsurfing mecca due to ideal wind and beach conditions. Avon is an old Hatteras Island village that has become synonymous with recreational surf fishing, and the Avon pier is a hot spot for those in pursuit of big gamefish like Red Drum. Just north of Buxton, this once tiny village of watermen and their families has grown to be a highly coveted vacationing experience with pristine, natural beaches and beautiful rental cottages. But Avon still retains its tight knit community feel. Even though you can find fantastic seafood restaurants, a supermarket, and some of the conveniences of home, a rustic atmosphere still permeates Avon. You may hear Avon referred to as Kinnakeet by some locals. It was the name local tribe of Algonkian Indians gave the area, and later adopted by settlers. But in 1883, the U.S. Postal Service redubbed the village Avon, like they did with most of the Hatteras Island communities. On the sound side of Avon, on the western side of Highway 12, you may see kiteboarders performing amazing aerial stunts and windsurfers racing across the surface of the Pamlico Sound. Nearby Kite point and Canadian Hole were named after the popularity of this public access spots with kiteboarders and with our visitors from the north. In the early spring, many watersports lovers flock here from Canada, Massachusets, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and other points north, because it is still quite cold at home and these enthusiastic athletes can't wait to have a little fun on the water. No handicap access.

  • A lovely property without peer on Hatteras Island. The amenities make for absolute comfort while the grounds surround you with beauty. I can't wait to visit again!

    Catherine2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • Natalie's place us an absolute dream!! Right on the water, this place is such a perfect place to disconnect from reality and truly enjoy the sun, sand, and beach. We really couldn't have asked for a better vacation and host.....Natalie was so prompt and gracious with everything. We will CERTAINLY be back! 🌊❤☀️

  • Great location and view of the sound. Good space and bedrooms. Housekeeping wasn’t complete prior to our arrival (after 4pm check-in time) and beds weren’t made. Weeds all over the property were a bit unsightly.

    Brock2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great location with many things to do!

    Tina2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • Natalie's Avon house is wonderful. The water views are million dollar views. The house was spotless and we'll stocked with everything you need. We had 10 family members and everyone was comfortable. Plenty of room for all to sit down and eat and loads of games. The kayaks were a big hit. The sunsets were gorgeous. Restaurants nearby were very good. Very relaxing vacation with family and we all hope to do it again. Natalie answered any questions within minutes. It was an awesome vacation.

    Judith2019-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Natalie is a wonderful host and the home is beautiful. Perfect location away from all of the crowds with lots of things to do at the house.

    Mark2019-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • I can’t say enough wonderful things about this home. The location was perfect. We traveled with a large family with a smaller child and teenagers. Everyone enjoyed kayaking and paddle boarding and crab hunting. The older kids enjoyed the tennis club and gym membership as well. Short walk to the ocean side or bike ride with the bikes provided by Natalie. The house was well maintained, clean and was open, inviting and with an incredible view!! The dining area was large enough for our party of 12 and the kitchen was well equipped for making large meals. Whenever I did have a question, Natalie responded very quickly and took care of business! Our entire party loved their vacation and all would like to come back again.

    A Modern Private home on a private lake with sound views. Our home located in beautiful Kinnakeet Shores. Kinnakeet Shores also offers various boardwalks with direct access to the sound and the beach. Under the house is covered parking, a park sized grill, picnic table, hot tub, and a large outdoor shower. Situated on a serene lake, yet a 6 minute walk to the beach, the sound, and the pool. Walking distance to restaurants, stores, and the grocery store as well.
    Close to all, and very private and serene
    Quiet and close to everything!!
  • The house is in a great location. Close enough to the beach where it isn’t a hassle to get to, but tucked away to have your own space. The overall stay was fantastic and we definitely will look to go back for our next reunion!

    Cole2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Michelle’s rental was an awesome getaway place!! Very clean, warm, comfortable and inviting. Really decorated nicely. Conveniently located near restaurants, grocery store the beach and the Sound...we could walk to all of them. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone wanting to get away to the Southern tip of the Outer banks.

    Jill2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Very beautiful house. Looks bigger than the pictures make it to be, which of course is a good thing.

  • “Absolutely peaceful and relaxing getaway. Perfect weather and tons of great smells outside. Loved watching the geese on the lake.” Rosalie, 4 yr old St Bernard “Run around the deck run around the deck run around the deck...wait! Is that a screen?! Keep running around the deck!!!” Emmett, 4 month old St Bernard “I will say there are quite a bit of stairs for my old hips and knees, but my humans carried me. I sure did love the close proximity to the beach, as well as the fresh air off the coast blowing in my face. Sooo many smells!” Tucker 12 yr old Puggle Needless to say, the dogs LOVED their vacation! The humans did as well! Michelle’s home was so very neat and tidy, as well as comfy and cozy. We love OBX in the off season and hope to visit again. Some may say, “there’s not much to do in the winter,” but there’s plenty of relaxation in the home, preparing yummy dinners with family and friends, and walks on the beach with the pups. We were all extremely pleased with our stay and Michelle’s hospitality. A great way to start the new year! ~Nikki

    Nikki2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent location. We had a wonderful stay at Michelle’s home. It is immaculate, nicely decorated, comfortable and spacious- yet cozy. Kitchen has everything you need. Two big decks, screened area for eating, hot tub, and plenty of rainy day things to do including TVs in every room. Nice layout with 3 bedrooms/2 baths down and one up. Easy access to the beach and groceries. Exceeded our expectations. Highly recommend.

  • Michelle’s place was super clean and felt just like home. The pics do not do this place justice, it is really big and comfy but allows private moments as well. I would not hesitate to stay here again!

    Barbara2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • The house is in perfect location, very convenient to everything, but not hear any traffic noises. All the rooms are very spacious and clean. The living rooms, dining room and kitchen are connected together, which is very nice for all the people enjoying time together. I will recommend this place for family vacation.

    Chih-Chun2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay! The house was very clean and nicely decorated. It’s centrally located near the beach, the sound, a grocery store, and several great restaurants. We hope to go back soon!

    This apartment is centrally located in Rodanthe, NC. It has quick access to the ocean and sound. We do not allow pets. This house was originally a lodge house at the Gull Island Gunning/Hunting Club in Salvo in the 1980's.
    This house was originally a lodge at the Gull Island Gunning/Hunting Club in Salvo in the 80's. I updated it and moved it to its current location in 2006. It is now located in the heart of Rodanthe. It about a 5-10 min stroll from the ocean and is sound front with direct access to the sound.
    Rodanthe, Waves and Salvo, commonly referred to as the TriVillage, or RWS is a tightknit community. This island and this village is a true gem for the state of North Carolina. We live out in the Atlantic Ocean. The austere simplicity is lovely. The weather here can be intense but its beauty is equally intense and worthy of a visit. The surf here can be world class, from big juicy freight train caverns to waist to chest high summer FUN. For the kiters and sailboarders, the wind is consistent for sound and ocean sailing. The shallow sound makes it a great location for learning. Fishing is great in the sound and the ocean. We have a tackle shop right next door.
  • Fantastic host, great location and amenities, perfect for kids, beautiful beach!

  • The apartment was lovely. Very clean and nice little touches of decoration everywhere. The owner was very responsive and answered all questions throughout our stay. We forgot a DVD player and Cheryl lent hers to us for the week. There is a huge front yard, big enough to run around for kids. The path to the sound behind the house was mostly not used by us -- too many mosquitos and spider webs. There's easy access to the ocean on the other side. The waves were really strong and the owner gave us a tip about the Frisco beach to the south, where it's more protected. Later in the week, it was less windy and the waves by the house were much better. Definitely recommend bringing groceries with you -- the closest real grocery store is about 25 mins away. There's a convenience story across the street (also has laundromat). In general, we loved staying there!

    Alex2019-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful apartment with 2 bedrooms with the necessary accomodations, except for a washer and dryer, but these are available at the campsite opposite, very convenient. And access to the beach nearby.

    Lina2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • Cheryl’s Beach Break apartment was perfect for our family of four for a week in Rodanthe. The personal touches were such a wonderful addition. Cheryl has a book of local activities, restaurants, etc... that’s super well organized and easy to use. There is beautiful art in the apartment, and even the book “The Air BnB Story” which was a fun beach read. The beach access is right across the street and I walked it several times in under ten minutes. What really blew my husband and I away was how clean the apartment is! Sparkling. Seriously, and Cheryl provided plenty of towels for showers, but bring your own beach towels (we did). The clothes line right outside was awesome for hanging up wet beach stuff! We will be back for sure! Tip: Go to Lumpy’s right across the street for breakfast sandwiches and burgers.

    Fionnuala2019-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • Cheryl's place was perfect for us, we wanted a low-key location with easy access to the beach and kiteboarding venues. It met and surpassed that-the outdoor shower and space for gear made it super easy for getting out to the water quickly and taking care of gear (and kids) easily. The place was immaculate and in really great shape. Cheryl's hospitality was outstanding, quick responses to questions and great suggestions. I hope that all her guests treat her and her place with the respect and admiration it really deserves! Just an amazing host! Will be back!

    Noel2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • This place is cute- clean and well kept- amenities are great- we could have stayed longer than 3 nights! Good location to the beach and restaurants. :)

    Robin2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and sparkling clean space. Beach access is right across the road and the sound is right behind the house. Space was incredibly clean and well-kept. Would absolutely stay again.

    Jessica2019-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • This was our first time to the Outer Banks and we were glad we stayed here. Cheryl's place was perfect for our small family. We much preferred Rodanthe to the busier towns of Nag's Head, Kill Devil Hills, or Kitty Hawk. Cheryl's place is right on the sound and just a very short walk to the ocean ( 7-8 minutes wearing flip flops). It had everything we wanted for a beach vacation - beach towels and chairs, bikes, and an outdoor shower. The kitchen was well stocked with necessary utensils. Cheryl was responsive and friendly. Overall, a great place that we would return to.

    This Queen room is a water (west) facing queen suite. It has a private bathroom. This room also has its own deck and exterior access. Enjoy amazing sunsets from your room/deck. There is a tv with cable. This room has a mini-fridge
    Kiteborn is ideal for kiters and windsurfers. Launch from our private dock/beach. We're in a private community with ocean beach access a two minute walk away as well. Kiteborn has amazing views of the sunset over Pamlico Sound. This is a great place for couples and solo adventurers, kiters, windsurfers, surfers, and other beach enthusiasts. Under the house there is a kitchen with a full counter top, sink, 4 burner stove top, and gas bbq. Kiteborn is dedicated to being a calm relaxing location. We do ask guests to respect quiet hours 10pm - 7am in the common space. Sorry, but we cannot accommodate pets or children under the age of 12. There is a Pet hotel/spa around the corner that will board pets while you stay here if that is an option you're interested in.
    The neighborhood/community is called Mirlo Beach. It is the first community as you travel south from the Pea Island Wildlife Refuge (and Nags Head, Kill Devil Hills, and Kitty Hawk). The community has a tennis court, a beach area on the sound (if you don't want to launch kites from the smaller area in front of Kiteborn), and private beach access across Hwy 12 for the ocean. The community has a tennis court, and its own private access to the ocean beach.
  • Such an amazing house with a great host! I stayed in #2 Kiteborn and the beauty of the view really exceeded my expectations. My room was very clean and had amenities equal to that of a hotel but much more sustainable. I came for a peaceful solo-cation and Kiteborn delivered.

    Remy2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Jared was the ultimate host! I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a quaint, quiet, quality getaway. Everything was as nice, if not nicer than the photos shown in the listing—and his kindness and hospitality really took the cake. There are some really great amenities available during your stay at Kiteborn. Jacuzzi tub, pool table, kayaks, etc. I absolutely loved the stellar views of the Carolina sunsets while relaxing in the Jacuzzi. He suggested places to eat and things to do and I felt more than welcome into his home. If you find yourself coasting through Rodanthe, Kiteborn is definitely the place to be. I assure you that it won’t disappoint!

    Erin2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place, if you like nice sunsets and sitting in a hot tub!

    Sam2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Only positive experience. Jared's hospitality even beats location that is superb by definition. Coming back!

    Dmitriy2019-12-15T00:00:00Z

    Susan2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. Great location, sound on one side and ocean close by. Ocean close enough that you can hear it from the front yard. Lots of toys to play with in the water or on the road. Great host, very friendly and helpful.

    Russell2019-10-28T00:00:00Z

    Mickey2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • If you’ve ever seen “Friends”, this house is pretty much what the safe haven for Monica, Rachel, & Phoebe would look like if they decided to leave their husbands. Needless to say this was perfect for our girls weekend getaway. All the details of the house design & flow come together perfectly & the longer you’re there the more details you notice & appreciate. The intimate, more private spaces for sleeping are perfectly balanced out by the communal, open areas for entertainment & engagement with family & friends. They have baskets of towels, sunglasses, & even flip flops out if your happened to forget yours. They are very quick to respond to questions & concerns before & during your visit. Everything is neat, organized, & accessible. There are even two fridges & a wine fridge for additional storage for those worried about not having enough storage for food & drinks you bring for a big week or small weekend. This will be my go to house to stay at in the future as my parents don’t even allow my dog in their beach house (even though he’s the best boy). Can’t wait to come back!

    Kaitlin2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • We had a group of 6 stay here for a weekend so we could go fishing offshore out of Hatteras. The house was in a great spot in Avon. Upon arrival, the outside of the house was even nicer in person and we already knew it was going to be a great stay. The house was clean, updated, very beachy, comfortable, and perfect for us to enjoy over the weekend. The layout of the home was awesome and the bedrooms were each set up clean and ready to go as if you were staying in a 5 star hotel. We really enjoyed the big space on the upper level with a wonderful kitchen and open floor plan flowing to the living room, a huge kitchen table, and double doors that opened to the upper level deck which we spent most of our time enjoying. The lower level had another small kitchen setup, as well as another nice living room area with more comfy seating and a lower level deck to enjoy. We could not be more pleased with our stay and we can’t wait to be back!

    Matt2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great space convenient to sound, beach, restaurants and shopping. Owners were great with communication. House was lovely, clean, and well stocked.

    Our cozy cottage is close to the beach, restaurants, coffee shops and local bars. We have a beautiful yard and deck space to keep you relaxed after long days on the beach or exploring the beautiful island. The cottage is a newly renovated studio under our home, with a queen size bed and full bathroom. The bathroom is spacious but most people prefer the grand outdoor shower (hot and cold with great water pressure).There is a 32" Roko TV and beach chairs for guest.
    We are located on a dead end street with mostly year-round neighbors. Everyone knows one another and the property is very safe and secure.
  • We loved our stay at Tricia and Zack's. The space was adorable, and had everything that we needed. It's in a great location, spotlessly clean, and the bed was very comfortable. Would definitely stay again if we were ever back in OBX.

    Katlyn2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great unit for a couple, or someone travelling solo. Perfectly clean, and great bed. Quiet and centrally located in Avon. I will definitely stay there again.

    Skibum6132019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • Love this place. My now Fiance and I stayed here, and were fortunate enough to run into Tricia a few times throughout our stay, who was very friendly and informative in many aspects of our trip. Nice little place that is within walking distance of the beach, restaurants, etc. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a nice getaway with a great atmosphere!

    Brenton2019-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a bargain. Wonderful space, delightful hosts, excellent location. Stay with these two and have a delightful time!

    Sarah2019-08-30T00:00:00Z

    Lisa2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • If you are headed to Hatteras Island, Avon is the place to go and this is the place to stay. Adorable, well-appointed suite with everything you'd need for an OBX beach vacation. Tricia and Zack are welcoming, helpful and very responsive. They are happy to give you recommendations on the area and answer any questions, but they also are very respectful of privacy. If you are looking for a laid-back, peaceful setting in the heart of the Southern Banks, book this place. There's a reason it's always in high demand.

    Kellie2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome spot down a quiet street full of locals, and neighborhood dogs. Zack was super friendly and gave us some great recommendations for the area. The outdoor shower was essential after a long day at the beach, the beach itself had a ton of space to spread out and was never crowded. Close to a lot of amazing local restaurants shops within walking distance. Would definitely stay here again next time we’re in Avon!

    Matt2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Location is great. It’s very clean, simple and cozy! Very true to pictures and easy! I would definitely come back.

    Steven2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful location, amazing artwork, super thoughtful host.

    Drew2019-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • A really comfortable and casual stay. The Surf Museum is a work in progress with a touch of casual rarely found. Our only suggestion is a new mattress for the bedroom.

    Michael2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful trip and experience. Marks Surf Museum is full of art work, warm and inviting. Mark is very responsive and clearly enjoys meeting and interacting if you want to. His place is laid back, a perfect relaxing Hatteras retreat!

    Katherine2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Mark‘s Surf museum was a great experience! It has an incredibly nice atmosphere there which made us feel welcomed from the first second we got there. Mark will help you out with literally everything if you need help or advice. He also knows a lot of cool places around there! If we ever make it to the outer banks again we will definitely come back to that place!

    Maxi2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful and unique location.

    Noelle2019-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • Mark is an excellent host who will go above and beyond to make you feel welcome in Avon. He knows all the ins and outs of the island ranging from good food, live music, and the best beach/water sport locations. He will hangout and chat or will give you as much space as you want. He is a great host with a very unique home. Tons of his very own art work fills the home giving the space an amazing local and unique feel. Loved our stay in Avon and will definitely be coming back to the Surf Museum.

    Welcome to the surf side in Rodanthe! One of the last untouched beaches on the east coast, we are home to miles of federally protected spaces that are ripe for exploration Located about 200 yards from the ocean front, this bedroom is a quaint and kitschy getaway. The perfect place to relax after a long day at the beach. The bathroom is shared with one other guest room. Rodanthe is a small village and it has that laid back beach feeling. Slow down and relax awhile.
    This room is subtlety beachy if not a little kitschy. It comes equipped with a mini fridge, microwave, and a coffee pot. It also has a Roku TV so you can log into your favorite streaming services and pick up where you left off. There is a small place to sit and enjoy your coffee.The dresser is in the large closet.
    Rodanthe is beautiful because the beaches are significantly less crowded than the northern beaches. If you wanted total seclusion, you would only need to drive about 5 miles into the refuge to park and walk. Or you can walk to the end of the street and take a dip in the morning (that's what I like to do). There is a great break right out front of the house for those that surf (or want to learn!) and about 400 yards down HWY 12 is our community's new skate park. If you are a skater, I highly suggest checking it out. Fun lines! Rodanthe has a charming village atmosphere. Everybody knows everybody.
  • Just what we were looking for. A great quiet place (off season) close to the water.

    Christian2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, great location. Really enjoyed that hot tub!

    Jeff2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Abbe’s place is great. We shared a bathroom with another couple but it worked just fine. There were two other couples staying on the same floor but everyone was pretty quiet. Everything is quiet out there. It’s so peaceful, you can see the stars really well on a clear night. SO close to the beach. We loved it. It was our first Valentines weekend as a married couple and this weekend getaway spot was just what we needed. Clean, cute, and relaxing. The hot tub was amazing. Can’t wait to get back!

    Beatrice2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Abbe's place is an ideal getaway spot that's close enough to the ocean to fall out the door for a day on the beach. This house is gorgeous and the rooms are clean, sunny, and spacious. Even though my room had a mini-fridge, microwave, and coffee maker, I was welcomed up to the main floor to use the stove or French press if I wanted. Also, you can't beat that hot tub or the hammock with an ocean view on the guest balcony. There were others staying at the house while I was there, but I still felt like I had the whole place to myself as everyone was quiet and respectful. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a spot to take a load off on Hatteras for a short stay or a long one, and honestly, the price was incredible. I was bummed to have to leave such a comfortable space that felt like home.

    Liz2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • I had a great time staying at Abbe's place. Abbe was a great host and her place is in an amazing location. Highly recommended!

    Donnie2020-01-14T00:00:00Z

    James2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great Airbnb for the outer banks. It's ideally located between Corolla to the north and Hattaras to the south. The host is very friendly, helpful, and responsive. The hot tub is an unbeatable amenity in the Winter, so we were extremely satisfied with our stay.

Family room, fully stocked kitchen, bonus beer fridge, enormous outdoor shower, corn hole, hot tub, wrap around deck, boogie boards, beach chairs- it's all here! Read our reviews, then book! Max Occupancy: 6 adults, 2 children. May 30-Aug 29 is 7-day SATURDAY TO SATURDAY PEAK BOOKINGS ONLY!
    NEW couch and a NEW KING SIZED BED added in 2019!!! Both are beautiful!! There's so much space in this three bedroom cottage due to the large family room with vaulted ceiling. Enjoy sunset dinners on the deck with built in dining table, playing corn hole, then soaking in the hot tub under the stars. "The Blue Dolphin" features games, books, movies, toys for the kids, boogie boards, beach chairs, high chair and port a crib. Under the house you'll find a large paved driveway (enough to park a boat!!), swings, charcoal grill, outdoor shower and fish cleaning station. The house is 6 lots back from the ocean front road! This house is perfect for one family, a family plus the grandparents, or two small families vacationing together. The expansive family room makes the home comfortable, even with 8 guests. The huge deck is perfect for the evening breezes, drinks with friends, or a challenging game of cornhole. Enjoy the sunrises in the morning on the brand new custom table on the deck!
    The home is located in a quiet neighborhood on lovely Hatteras Island. Enjoy the comfortable Tri-Village area, with it's quaint shops and nearby restaurants and quiet atmosphere. Life here is much slower paced so be prepared to unwind. The home has many of the amenities of modern living yet the pace of life on Hatteras Island is friendly but notably slower. The proximity to the ocean is wonderful. Once you arrive at the private beach path, the walk across the dunes is amazing - the wildlife peeping out of the dunes is enjoyable for both kids and adults alike (many times we have seen deer munching on the greenery on the dunes). When arriving at the beach, you are met with an expanse of beach good for either beach volleyball, or simply digging a large sandcastle. The ocean temperatures are notably warmer than Nags Head and the northern sections of the Outer Banks.
  • The property was great. Very well kept, with a nice hot tub to relax. The location was just right for us, a block from the ocean side. Grace was quick to communicate with us from the beginning. We had some questions during our trip and she responded promptly. We are very thankful for her hospitality. The NC12 was closed the day of our departure and we were stuck with no where to go. Grace made sure we stayed safe that night. We would definitely stay at this property again!

    Chintan2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed here again (second time) recently - love the location on the cape - great for kiting, hanging out near the ocean side, hot tubbing, and cooking some meals to save a few dollars. Will definitely consider it again!

    Jonathan2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • What a great vacation!

    Jillian2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • It's a great house for a nice family vacation. The hot tub is amazing and ita super close to the beach.

    Jessica2019-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Our family loved staying at the Blue Dolphin! It was so clean and well-stocked with dishes, supplies and activities for our kids (corn hole, board games, toys, dvd's). The decor was lovely and the home so comfortable to come back to after a day at the beach. We hope to come back again!

    Steve2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Grace was great to deal with. Very good communication. The house is in a great location. Quiet neighborhood really close to the beach.

    Brad2019-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed staying at the Blue Dolphin. It was roomy, nicely furnished, and very clean. The walk to the ocean is relatively short and the beach in that area is fairly private. Check-in and check-out were extremely easy, and Grace is very responsive. I highly recommend this house.

    Reese2019-06-02T00:00:00Z
  • Grace was a great host and very accommodating! Her place was very clean, comfy, close to the beach and offered everything we could have imagined. I would recommend anyone to stay here and would like to go back sometime!
