Avon House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, Sleeps 12

This large, ocean view home is located in the pristine Cape Hatteras Nat'l Seashore with its unspoiled beaches. The beautiful, non-crowded beach is directly across the street from this well-appointed 5 bedroom home. Minutes away is sightseeing, shopping, restaurants, outdoor activities, and charter boat fishing.

Friday to Friday rental. You won't miss sitting in hours of traffic on Saturday. Start and end your vacation with a full weekend.

With ocean and sound views, VIRGINIA DARE has all the necessities for a great vacation. Many repeat guests love that they have everything they need to relax in our home. Yet many popular activities and sights are just a short ride away.

The first floor boasts a game room with a pool table where everyone can have hours of fun, bedroom with two sets of bunks, a half bath, bar & wine refrigerators and the entrance to the private heated (optional) pool and sun deck. Relax at the pool and listen to your favorite tunes from the superior sound system where volume is controlled on pool deck.

The second floor has three ocean-side bedrooms with sliding-glass doors to large east and south decks and bubbly six-person hot tub. The first bedroom has two twins, the second one a queen. The third bedroom is a master suite with a king and private bath. A second full bath and laundry room are located on this level along with a quiet area with desk for one who needs to keep in touch with business while away.

Dine in the third-level, ocean view, great room with tall ceilings, 42' flat screen TV, south and east decks, half bath, wet bar with second full size refrigerator with second icemaker, breakfast bar, chef-appointed kitchen, and seating for 16. Located off the comfortably and creatively furnished great room is a fifth, ocean view, master bedroom with a king, private bath and deck access.

Sun worshipers will love the miles of decks and loads of deck furniture. Enjoy music from the extensive sound system while swimming in the pool or relaxing in the hot tub.

Before or after the hectic pace of the summer, take advantage of the spring and fall months. The water temperatures are warm and rates are low. April and May and September and October are some the prettiest months on the Outer Banks with a slower pace.

We think you will agree, VIRGINIA DARE is the FIRST LADY OF THE COAST.

About Sherry & Joe Pino

The Pino Family

We have been vacationing on the Outer Banks of NC for almost 30 years.

Joe visited the OBX as a teenager with a neighbor camping in Salvo. He loved it then and came back to fish throughout college.

We returned with our two young children in the mid 1980's first renting and then owning a small cottage on Ocracoke.

In 2000 we looked for additional rental property, selecting Avon for it's good beach and quiet neighborhood. The town of Avon has just enough business to meet our guests needs with Outlet Malls, area attractions and historical sites just a short drive away,

Our children are now adults and have never missed family vacations on the OBX even thru their college years.

With the addition of our first grandchild last year our tradition will continue thru the next generation.

Sherry & Joe Pino purchased this house in 2000

Why Sherry & Joe Pino chose Avon

In 2012 we have gone Rent By Owner. You deal directly with us the owners, no realty whose reservationists have most likely never even seen the home.

We provide you with premier housekeeping complete with conceirge services.

Our home is well appointed. We use our home and have equipped with what families need to be able to cook, relax and have fun.

What makes this house unique

Virginia Dare with ocean views, sounds and smells from both our decks is like ocean front without the cost. A less than 2 minute leisurely walk puts you on the beach. Summed up by a guest's comment, they loved that they never had to leave for entertainment.

The addtion of permanently installed wooden gates on our outside decks as well as the stairwell on the upper level Great Room has proven to be very be very handy for corraling little ones and dogs. Reversed living provides fabulous views. But adds the challenge of keeping our little ones safe. Our interior gate eliiminates that worry.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Pinos:

We had a great time at Cape Hatteras this week and your house was perfect. We have attached some photos of our kids Erin and Alex and dog Maizey having fun at your house. We will be back next June.

Birthday Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I took my wife to the OBX for her birthday weekend. From the start the owners were quite accommodating. Many owners/property managers are hesitant or downright unwilling to rent for less than a week... even in the early to off season. That was not the case here. They even pro-rated the pool heat. The house was clean with blankets & bedding included. It was convenient to the Food Lion & also to beach access. The ocean views were excellent even one row back. The pool was definitely acceptable & hot tub was excellent. I would definitely stay here again.

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Virginia Dare looking for a time to recreate as a family. Walking into this beach getaway home was so refreshing. Everything we had in mind for a beach vacation was met here.

The house was very roomy and accommodated our large family of 11 brilliantly. The upper level is open and bright and adorned with a wrap around deck perfect for watching the sunrise and set. The kitchen is well stocked with nothing lacking. The bedrooms slept us all comfortably. We loved the hottub in the evening and the heated pool during the day. The lower level boasts a pool table, dartboard, and foosball table. My teenagers loved hanging out down there to unwind after beach play. The beach is truly a minute walk away. Sherry was so helpful and saw that any concern we had was handled immediately. Also of note is the homes close proximity to Food Lion.

If we ever have the chance to vacation at the OBX again, Virginia Dare will be our top choice.

Owner's Response: Jake & Christie, Thank you so much for writing a review! We really appreciate you taking the time. It warms our hearts to know our home afforded you and your family such a relaxing vacation. We look forward to having you as guests again at Virginia Dare. Thank You, Joe & Sherry

This is our favorite house!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family's favorite vacation spot is the Outer Banks and we have stayed at many houses on Hatteras over the years. Our stay at Virginia Dare was the result of learning about VRBO and I will never go back to going through realtors. Working with Sherry to schedule our stay was so nice - much better to make plans with a person and not a business. In addition, when we were in the house, we felt more like we were at a "friend's" house and appreciated how much their love of the house came through in all the careful attention to details, family pictures and great amenities. Of course, the closeness to the beach, shopping and pool and hot tub were all spectacular and what we've always looked for in a house. We will definitely stay at Virginia Dare again - it will be nice to come "home" to a familiar house in summers to come.

We just got back from our week at Virginia Dare and I must say it was spectacular.

The house was beautiful and had everything you could possibly want or need.

We have older kids and they loved the pool and how close the beach was.

Everyone wants to go back next year and I believe we will. Thanks to Joe& Sherry

Owner's Response: Hi Matt & Family, Wow back to you! What a great review, thank you! Yes it is convenient being so close to the beach, just a 2 minute walk, making it convenient to head back for lunch or use the bathroom. Joe and I really love it when other's enjoy our home as much as we do. Thanks again and I look forward to having you share our home again! Sherry & Joe

Great House, Great Location, Amazing Owners

  • 5 of 5

We had been planning this family reunion for over a year. Like many people who do not live on the East Coast, I picked this house at random. I cannot tell you how lucky my choice was! The owners of this property were extremely helpful in all of the arrival coordination, highly responsive to email inquiries, and provided a wealth of information to make sure our stay was as enjoyable as possible. The house was fantastic as well. The pool was perfect for the kids (9-13), the hot tub was a big hit, and the pool table on the bottom floor was used often. They have an outdoor shower for getting cleaned off before entering the house, the decks are wrap around for great views, and the upstairs kitchen/family room is spacious and well laid out. You can walk to the grocery store, dollar store, and grab a bite to eat in less than 10 minutes. You can also get to the beach with a very short walk along the raised path and be in the water before you know it. The owners were also very responsive to any issues that came up during our stay and had a maintenance team show up the same day. I will absolutely return to the Outer Banks and won't risk staying with anyone else. I hope this review is enough to help you choose this property because you won't be disappointed!

Owner's Response: Briggs, It warms our hearts to hear our home has helped build such great memories, especially with family reunions. We all leave such busy lives we need to recharge and regroup. Thank you for such a heart felt review and for closing our home. We chose our home, Virginia Dare, for it's proximity to the beach with great ocean views, sights and smells. Having the great room, game room, ample pool, hot tub, spacious decks and of course the ocean just a 3 minute walk, we too agree Va Dare has all the important elements to gather and relax with family. As one guest wrote, you never have to leave to have fun. Yet we have the convenience of a large grocery store, shops & restaurants close by along with lighthouses, outlet shopping & lots of activities just short drive way. Briggs, as your family knows, fishing excursions are close buy too. Congratulation on your day's catch and for sharing your picture. Did you leave any for other boats? Warm Regards, Sherry & Joe

Nice place!

First of all this three level house is very large. We arrived and the house was clean. Sherry was very responsive and helpful for information on the area. Even though it's one row back it still has a nice view. Our family had a wonderful trip and we would stay here again!
