Salvo Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Cottage, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)
Such a quaint cottage with so many extras including a detached guesthouse! New to the rental market and fully updated, Pelican Point is a unique retreat with amazing wetland and sound views and over an acre of outdoor space partially shaded by majestic live oaks, cedars and a large fig tree. Direct sound access, a large grassy area for rigging and a boardwalk to a spacious private soundfront dock and more than 500 feet of soundfront shoreline make for a watersports paradise, whether windsurfing, kiteboarding, fishing, crabbing or kayaking. And if your thoughts turn to the ocean it's an easy walk to Salvo's wide and un-crowded sandy beaches for a day of surfing, boogie boarding, fishing, shelling or just relaxing in the sun.
After a fantastic day on the water come home for a dip in the private soundfront pool or 6-person hot tub to watch the sunset over the sound; or relax with a game of horseshoes or bocce on the lawn. A huge fig and live oak canopy provides ample shade to while the day away with a good book or a shady spot for the tots to play. A small wetlands beach, sheltered and shallow waters and small playhouse under the oaks are great for little kids, and everyone can enjoy the gameroom with pool table, basketball hoop and hammock in the cedars.
The main cottage allows easy access for all including seniors and handicapped, with one-level living, a ramp to the back door, and a bathroom with large accessible shower. It features a large and well-equipped kitchen with new stainless steel appliances and views over the pool to the sound, a dining area that seats 12, and new high-efficiency washer & dryer. The sunny living room has spectacular sound views, a 42' flat-screen TV with cable, Blu-ray DVD, a huge selection of movies on demand via Netflix, and a massive music library via Pandora Internet Radio.
The cottage has 4 bedrooms including two masters. Bedroom 1 is a master with a king bed, flat-screen 26' TV / DVD with cable, large bathroom with a handicapped accessible shower, and stunning views over the pool to the wetlands and sound. Bedroom 2 is a master with a queen bed and bathroom with bath and shower, and large windows with views of the sun rising through the cedars. Bedroom 3 has a queen bed and sliding glass doors to a brick patio on the soundside, and bedroom 4 has two sets of bunks (4 twin beds). Bedrooms 3 and 4 are by the hall bathroom which has a bath and shower.
The cozy detached guesthouse is about 30 feet from the cottage (on the other side of the pool) via a walkway and ramp, and has a part-covered deck with porch swing, adirondack chairs and amazing wetland and soundfront views - a great place to watch the many birds that visit, the kiteboarders speeding by or the breathtaking sunsets. Inside there is a gameroom with pool table and 32' flat-screen TV with cable / Blu-ray DVD / Netflix / Pandora, and a wetbar with full-size refrigerator / ice-maker, microwave, toaster and coffee maker. There is also a media room (which doubles as a second living room) with a large sectional sofa with fold-out full bed, and 42' flat-screen TV with cable and Blu-ray DVD with Netflix on-demand movies and Pandora Internet Radio. The guesthouse also features one cozy bedroom with a queen bed, and a bathroom with shower.
Pelican Point is a traditional Hatteras cottage that has been fully updated, but without losing the simple island charm reminiscent of the more remote Ocracoke Island, where live oaks stand watch over one-story cottages and small family cemeteries that tell the story of the island. In fact the cottage is built by the site of the traditional homestead and resting place of some of the original settlers in the area. Their homestead lasted hundreds of years on the high ground by the live oaks, with the land where Pelican Point now stands serving as the family farm and route to the wetlands and sound for hunting and fishing. Although the original homestead has made way for development, some of the descendants still live near Pelican Point and are great neighbors with wonderful stories to tell!

About The Owner
We're a family of four with two active young boys and love watersports, taking long walks on the beach and relaxing with friends and family. We particularly enjoy windsurfing, surfing, sailing and kayaking - and want to add kiteboarding and fishing to the list!
Based in central NC, we race to the Outer Banks at every opportunity. Our kids love to kayak, crab, climb Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, visit the turtles and take the free ferry across to Ocracoke. We all love the friendly, laid-back atmosphere on the Outer Banks, and the amazing sights and seafood!
The Owner purchased this cottage in 2010
Why The Owner chose Salvo
Since moving to NC in 2007 we found ourselves visiting the Outer Banks more and more often. The beautiful soundfront views and unspoiled beaches of Salvo soon became our favorite destination - even in the height of summer the beaches are uncrowded and there is always a quiet spot to windsurf or kayak on the sound. The major attractions are all close by too: Hatteras and Bodie Lighthouses, The Graveyard of the Atlantic, Lost Colony and Wright Brothers Museums.
Our breath was literally taken away when we first saw Pelican Point - it is a little piece of paradise by the sound. You have to experience the stunning 180 degree wetland & sound views and 200 year old live oaks to fully appreciate the wild beauty and see why we love this spot.
What makes this cottage unique
Pelican Point has hundreds of feet of soundront access, over an acre of outdoor space and is only a short walk to the ocean beaches. There are rental shops nearby for kayaks, surfboards, bikes and beach equipment, and for kiteboarders Real Watersports and The Slick are just to the north. Grocery and fishing supply shops are a five minute drive and a cinema and larger shopping district can be found in Avon, a 15-20 minute drive away.
