Salvo House Rental Photos and Description
House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
I bought this cottage with a surfing buddy of mine back in 1989. It was to be our surf shack. A place to come get a few waves, crash, get some more waves, maybe a veggie sub at Lisa's, and then head back to our other lives back in VB.
My co-owner's nickname from childhood was 'Onion' ,(something to do with a bad haircut, I think), so the cottage was quickly christened 'Onionville' by some friends of ours who had a few too many beers one afternoon at one of the local watering holes after a surf session. They met a painter in the bar and commissioned a sign which, unsolicited by us, soon appeared on the house; a cool surfer dude looking Onion sporting a pair of Wayfarer shades. 'Onionville 'was born! It was the place of many surfing expeditions and sunburned memories. Several years later I bought out his share but the name (and the sign) remained.
Three years ago I gutted and rebuilt the entire house from the top down. All new siding and roof and walls and floors and solid wood doors and appliances and furniture and....we even had a new Onionville sign painted. The sun does shine bright on the Outer Banks!!
It is now a small but beautiful and cozy little boat at anchor on pilings in the middle of Hatteras Island only steps from the beach and with a view of the sound.
This little house has 2 bedrooms, a full bath upstairs and a 1/2 bath in the ground floor laundry room. I built a fabulous porch with high ceilings and rooftop observation cocktail deck.
It is perfect for a couple or a small family. We are only 6 houses back from a spectacularly wide stretch of Hatteras National Seashore beach. We are on the Ocean side of Route 12 and in the quiet ,well-maintained seaside community of Hatteras Colony, close to stores,shops and restaurants. You can share in the legacy of 'Onionville' !
