BREEZY OCEANSIDE 3-STORY OUTER BANKS SALTBOX AT THE BEACH

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.

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

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!

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.

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!

I can see why people fall in love with OBX: the drive in over the bay from Raleigh way was an unexpected bonus and delight. when we were leaving, we drove out to Williamsburg via Nags Head and Kill Devil Hills, and we all agreed that Salvo was so much better in its location, laid back atmosphere and lack of commercialisation.

The Saltbox house was excellently located for everything we needed - especially the mind-blowing expanse of beach - and the balconies/sun porches were a real plus point.

The laundry set up couldn't have been better - travelling with 3 children we really appreciated it - and the back and front gardens let them practise their NFL skills (but they still prefer cricket!).

Loved the Top Dog cafe (especially the children) and the Village Conery.

We had a fantastic time and wished we could have stayed longer, but the itinerary didn't permit.One day we'd love to come back. All in all, a great experience, which has given us some unforgettable memories and precious photos.

Beautiful and Breezy

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful house with comfortable furnishings and beds in addition to interesting artwork. The pictures and written description portray the house exactly as it is so look carefully! There are many steps (spiral inside) and you will be one block from the beach access--not the beach, which is another 300 feet through sand.

There is lots to do and we especially enjoyed taking a tour with Sammy, owner of tightlinez.charters

Be sure to bring trash bags, toilet paper, spices, cooking oil......The local market in Salvo is small and expensive.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5
Our group had a great first time in Salvo and the house was just what we were looking for. We especially loved all of the decks and the more modern decor of the house, and e fact that we could bring along our pooch was an added bonus. In addition, the owner was super helpful and always quickly responded to any inquiries. Definitely recommend.

Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at the Saltbox and had a wonderful time. The house is quite lovely, simply, yet elegantly furnished, and conveniently located with all of the essentials within a few minutes by car. The kitchen is well-equipped, the living area extremely comfortable, and the loft bedroom is beautiful. There is also a very nice, screened-in deck on the second level, which was where we spent a lot of time.

We also loved playing our music and watching our movies with the sound provided by the system in the living room area. Quite wonderful! Definitely a highlight for all of us.

Just one note, the spiral stair case was a bit difficult to navigate with a toddler, but that's the only thing of note. It wasn't impossible, but wasn't the most convenient. There is a nice stair way outside that goes from the third to the second level as an alternative.

We also recommend using the Merrimack Road beach access. At the end of Bosun make a right, and you'll see a sign showing where the access starts. It's a lot less rugged than the one to the left of Bosun.

It's a short walk to both the beach, and sound, and such a wonderfully comfortable place to stage your Outer Banks adventure. Thanks for sharing your property with us! Everyone else, enjoy your stay here. I'm sure you will.
