'ONIONVILLE' COZY 2BR COTTAGE HATTERAS COLONY OCEANSIDE RT 12

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' !

I practice law in Virginia Beach and try to get into the water whenever I can

Hatteras is the best!!

george yates purchased this house in 1989

Surf. Clean water. Wide beaches . Cool breezes. Laid back and mellow. Uncrowded Nature . Cool surf shops and restaurants with sunset views.

Nice beach right out front. Hatteras Colony has nice clean streets for kids to bike ride. My daughters both learned to ride bikes there.

GREAT

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time in the outer banks. The house was perfect for our needs. The outdoor shower was a blast and the deck was so nice in the late evening for a glass of wine and star gazing. We will most definitely go back to onionville. 5 stars .....

OBX REVISITED AFTER 13 YEARS

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent a wonderful week in mid-April, 2013 at Onionville; it is the perfect place for a couple, or a couple with two or three children. It's not too big, and it's not too small. Easy to handle, easy to clean up at the end of the stay. A 10 minute walk to the beach, the beach cart is very handy, and the beach itself it just like what we remember the OBX beaches to be: quiet, calm, peaceful...we had great weather that week, so who could ask for anything more? After having done quite a bit of camping on Hatteras Island over the last 30 years or so, this nice cottage was a welcome change to that lifestyle, now that we are getting a bit older. We would highly recommend it to everyone who enjoys the simple things of life, and as for my wife and me, we will go back there in a heartbeat.

OBX LOVERS

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I and our two 8 month-old kitties arrived at "Onionville" from Pennsylvania, and found the property in good shape. We had a lot of questions beforehand, all of which the owner answered promptly and to our satisfaction. We were so happy to find a rental that accepted pets, and our kitties loved the screened porch. A ten-minute walk to the beach, using the beach cart provided was pleasant and rewarding, with a beautiful beach. We think the Outer Banks have the most beautiful beaches on the East Coast, in spite of the storm damage of recent years.

The house was very well equipped, as advertised, with the exception of the gas grill; that was resolved immediately, with the owner's purchase of a new grill, which we enjoyed during our stay. Shopping and dining are a short drive away; the neighborhood is very pleasant, and great for bike riding. This property is ideal for a couple with pets, or several children. We will definitely rent here again, and would recommend it to our friends.

PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
We(2 seniors) stayed here for week and left wishing we could stay longer .This lovely,clean rental had everything we needed and was close to places we wanted to visit.Groceries, shopping and restaurants were nearby.We really lacked none of the conveniences of home.The weather was wonderful and the beach ,though a bit of a hike for us,was amazing!! We were surrounded by neighbours but heard nothing except for the occasional car pulling into a driveway.We will definitely recommend this rental to all our friends and return again next year .

PERFECT LEASURE

  • 5 of 5
I recommend Onionville to anyone who just needs or wants to get away from their hectic, busy life. Relaxation was what we found at this quiet place. It was very conveniant and central to the places we wanted to see and/or explore. There were rental homes near by, but we had near total peace and quiet. I am ready to rent this home again!
