Salvo House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

3 Story Oceanside House Available for your perfect Outer Banks Vacation.

This Salvo property has been a home and place for friends and renters to enjoy since 2005. A saltbox design with exposed beams and vaulted ceilings throughout, the home features new hardwood flooring and a tastefully decorated interior. Large sliding glass doors and windows provide plenty of natural light and ventilation: when open, they allow the refreshing ocean air and uniquely dramatic light of the Outer Banks to permeate the house. Previous visitors to the property say this aspect, coupled with the home’s airy design, create an energy that is both relaxing and inspiring.

Located in the oceanside community of 'Hatteras Colony,” the residence is on a cul-de-sac with no through traffic. The quiet neighborhood location is perfect for walking, biking, and bird watching, and the substantial backyard is the ideal place to throw a frisbee, play some ball, or catch fireflies. Three elevated decks and a screened-in porch invite après-beach conversation and cocktails, a quiet morning with a new book, or an evening barbeque. The home also boasts modest ocean views from its upper level. Deeded access to both the beach and sound makes getting to the water easy; as does the nearby boat ramp, access to which is also included in the rental. So too is an on-site storage locker, perfect for securing outdoor and sporting gear.

Inside, you’ll find common rooms appointed with leather furniture and traditional Hatteras décor, including goods made by local artisans.

Simple and bright, the bedrooms feature organic cotton sheets and plush comforters for those spring or fall nights when you need extra warmth. Our spacious kitchen is stocked with china and cookware perfect for making a casual breakfast, weekend brunch or candlelit dinner. A spiral staircase leads guests to the loft.

Ensuring a memorable and fun-filled stay is of the utmost importance to us. And so included in your rental rate is also a personal concierge service designed to help you plan and get the most out of your vacation. For an additional fee, we can also arrange grocery delivery or items such as a rollaway bed or sea kayaks, surfboards, paddleboards or other sporting related items.

We know you’ll be delighted with the accommodations and location, and we look forward to making your stay in the Outer Banks exceptional.

About The Owner

My name is Colin Gowland. I was born in Canada and spent most of my life there, traveling for sports interests when I could. In 2002, I moved to the Outer Banks to pursue a career in kiteboarding. While there, my wife and I purchased the house and resided there until 2007, when we relocated to Puerto Rico. I now reside in Maine, where I work in the yachting industry. I enjoy sailing as well as most watersports; I also love music-- both playing and listening. I'm very fond of the OBX and return whenever I can. The landscape there brings me a lot of peace and seemingly, the more I look, the more I find. This is a magical spot: one of my absolute favorites, and I sincerely hope you enjoy your time there. It's truly priceless!

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Salvo

This home was initially my residence. We chose the Outer Banks because of its long, pleasant seasons and its unique geography: the combination of the Atlantic Ocean and Pamlico Sound create seemingly unlimited opportunities for recreation. After spending a good amount of time there, I discovered that there was much more than kiteboarding, surfing, windsurfing, beach walking, sunsets, sunrises, friends, laughs, biking and cocktails. There's also fishing!

What makes this house unique

Low traffic, safe neighborhood for walking and biking, beach and sound access, screened-in porch, multiple decks, kiteboarding, surfing, windsurfing, sailing, sports equipment storage, ice cream, cocktails, fishing, sunsets, sunrises, running, laughing, eating, being merry, suntans, sunburns, lemonade, sea shells, seashores, lighthouses, life saving station history, reading, relaxing, writing, sleeping, loving.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Saltbox this past September and had a great time. The place had all the basics down pat: outdoor grill and outdoor shower (indoor showers too), proximity to the beach (a five minute walk if you dawdle), and lots of light, air and sun. Everything was spotless. Colin was great to deal with and super flexible and helpful about letting us book at the last minute (I fell in love with the Saltbox on VRBO while driving from the Smokies to the Outer Banks and called Colin en route). The decks on the house were great and everything worked, including the TV, if you're into that. Definitely bring your own DVD's if you want to watch any. My only criticism is that the cookware needs an upgrade: I know it's easier and cheaper to get very basic cookware, but some of the pots and pans were past their prime and the scratched and chipped non-stick coating on a couple of pans made me a little nervous. Salvo is a very quiet town this time of year, though the kite surfers were in full force the day we were there. There are just enough stores nearby to keep you supplied with the basics and if you want civilization, then Nags Head and the towns north of there to the VA border can provide more than enough of that.

Thanks again, Colin--we'll be back!

Great visit, second stay early October

  • 4 of 5
This was our second visit at the SaltBox, we had another quiet stay. The house is in a great location, quiet private off highway neighborhood with easy 5 min walk to beach via path. The house has great decor, stereo and general feel. Only thing one needs to note is the stairs are circular from lower/mid/upper level access, so if you have problems climbing may pose a challenge. Has a nice gas grill and cable TV.
Well recommended. About a 15 min drive to Avon grocery/dining. NSP beach access just South (5 min drive).

The property exceeded our expectations. The salt box is your home away from home. The kitchen comes well stocked with equipment to make just about any meal. We also took advantage of the grill while we were there which is very well maintained. The house is very close to the beach and local restaurants. The owner checked in on us our first day just to make sure we settled in ok. The property manager also dropped in to ensure we had basic supplies. We would stay there again if in the area.

Fun week in OBX

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I had a great week hanging out with another couple and their preteen in the saltbox. It was a short walk to the beach and a comfortable stay for all of us (including our dog). Washer and dryer was very handy and was close to waves market which has pretty much all you need food/drink wise.

2014 family getaway

  • 4 of 5
We have 3 older children 15 to 22 years old. The Saltbox was perfectly suited for 5 people. It had nice furnishings, not over the top. the kitchen had all the accessories needed. I would recommend a steamer pot for seafood. We used the gas BBQ for three dinners with no problems. The location was very nice and quiet. Excellent views of the full moon from the porch. We took advantage of the terrain and roads for running and bike rides.
Internet was in great order when needed. Also, an easy walk to the beach. All things considered, we had a great time in a great locale.

Easter break 2014

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Colin. Our trip started off slow due to rain and wind. It didn't stop us though. Your house was great ! Thank you for letting us borrow it. My daughter had fun cleaning her sea shells and blowing bubbles in the closed in patio. My dog liked laying on the balcony too. We did get one nice beach day. We all got a sun burn because I said oh it's not that sunny. Ha ha. We took my niece to the beach on Easter morning in the rain. She had never seen the ocean before. (Bathing suit, flip flops,shorts and winter coat) :)
Thank you again. Your house was perfect!
