NIRVANA = HEAVEN ON EARTH

Avon Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Nirvana cottage is our Heaven on Earth. Just a hop, skip & a jump away from the ocean & beach. (nirvanahatterasDOTweeblyDOTcom) for details & rental procedure) This simple, one-family, cottage continues to be owned & managed by the family that built it. Originally designed for a family of five with three daughters, this modest two bedroom home sleeps five (5). (DO Check your JUNK-E-Mail Box for MY REPLY to your VRBO Inquiry.) Scroll down to base of this page for link to our other website for more information: nirvanahatterasDOTweeblyDOTcom

The sheltered screened front porch with rocking chairs continues to be a favorite. The towering observation deck provides plenty of space for star, sky & sea gazing. There's also the screened outdoors shower that makes it convenient to rinse the sand & salt off after a days play.

Rare to see on this part of the island, Nirvana's yard is wooded & alive with song-bird activity as well as a bird-bath and a place to sit among the trees to meditate or contemplate. . . .

Nirvana is 'old-time' with not a whole lot of gadgetry. Plan on hand washing the dishes and not doing laundry. Mom would say: 'who wants to do laundry on vacation?' so there's no clothes-washer nor dryer nor air-conditioning nor telephone nor cable-tv. Dad's job used keep him 'on-call' so of course 'who wants the phone to ring while the folks were on vacation?' Not our Ma! There was no telephone for many years and once again there's no land-line telephone. My folks thought people would spend their days at the beach so there was no air-conditioning with the high-set windows, dark wood paneling, wide over-hangs to shade the windows and a sea breeze that blows throughout the house with the windows and sliding-door open. It's been an ongoing discussion in the guest book with our guests whether to 'change' to A/C or not. Despite the lack of A/C, we have managed to obtain 'pool privileges' at a near-by sub-division for our Nirvana guests. The television was another bone of contention as Mom didnt really like the programing of TV nor did she like the zombification of TV watchers but for awhile, due to the 'rental-professionals' advice, we did have TV but no longer. You know as well as I that there's hardly anything 'on' worth watching anyways. If you need a TV then there's other businesses on-island such as tackle shops, restaurants and pubs that do have TVs on premises.

With ceiling fans in each room, tiled floors and an ocean breeze wafting through, Nirvana is a wonderful nearly-hidden gem.

Check-in on SUNDAYS & check-out on SUNDAYS help lessen the 'heavy-traffic-volume Saturdays' that prevail on the Outer Banks. No-one enjoys the traffic-jam that occurs 70 miles up the road in northern Dare County. Or Nirvana is also available at daily/nightly rates too.

Simple, economical & easy to maintain. This cottage provides a place for rest & relaxation for you to find some peace at our beach haven.

Born in the scenic Hudson Valley of NY state & residing at Cape Hatteras, NC USA since 1982. That's me, at your service. . .

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1964

My parents drove south from Orange County, New York until they 'liked it'. That landed Mum, Pop, 3 daughters & the irish setter in Nags Head, NC. Once the bridge was completed, my father drove us o'er to Hatteras Island & promptly purchased this tract of land that Nirvana inhabits. It was nothing but sea oats & sand dunes & wow, just look at it now! Over the years, Nirvana cottage has managed to be a treasure trove of nostalgic memories, now that our parents have passed on. My sisters and I continue to utilize & share this cottage with you. We try to uphold the principles & simplicity that our folks desired to share so a family vacation may still be with-in reach to others that wish to flock to the coast for their vacation needs.

This is a great place to be rocking on the porch. Listening to the call of the seagulls. Watching the pelicans fly formation over the waves. Beaching, surfing, walking the shoreside beach. Catching dinner while surf-fishing practically right out the front door. Hearing the ocean lulling you to sleep. Sleeping outside on the deck under the cover of a starry night sky. The aroma of beach bonfires in the salty, night air. Enjoying the wild birds as they flit around the trees on the property. It's a beautiful place to 'be'.

TERRIBLY DISAPPOINTING

  • 1 of 5
This cottage is in desperate need of updating and yard maintenance. The bathroom is deplorable, the sink is rusty and pitted, and the bathtub is completely covered in caulk, and backs up no matter how many times it is plunged. Ants were everywhere. Shrubbery around the house was horribly overgrown, and what grass there was was not mowed. The only windows are small and high, and every room is dark, dated wood-like paneling...It was such a depressing place, we could not stay the entire week, and left after 4-days. This was without a doubt, the worst rental we have ever encountered.

GREAT LOCATION!

  • 3 of 5
We loved the peacefulness and morning light on screened porch in the morning, the tower (I always wanted a tree house!) and especially liked being able to rent for just two nights, not seven days! That was a find in itself! (We were in NC mostly to visit relatives in the Piedmont area.)The price was also very reasonable.

STARRY NIGHT

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I had a few kid-free days to explore the Outer Banks and were happy to find a house across from the beach that was affordable and available for only 2 nights. Nirvana is basic as advertised but the observation tower was amazing (so long as you’re not afraid of heights). On our second night we appropriated cushions from the rocking chairs on the porch and went stargazing with a bottle of wine. Very romantic!
Other pluses include close proximity to the supermarket, well-maintained gas grill, a well-stocked spice rack, and a good assortment of pots/pans and utensils. Not providing towels or bedding is tough for anyone who travels by air as we did though.

RELAXING, BACK-TO-BASICS GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I brought our baby daughter for her first trip to the ocean. We had a very nice and relaxing time. The cottage is situated close to the beach, making for quick runs to get any forgotten items, a cool drink or a break from the sun. We didn't miss the internet or cable our whole visit, and spent time on the breezy deck and porch reading, playing games, and spending time with each other. This little place was perfect for the escape we were hoping to have.

All of the basic needs are within a short distance from the cottage. Groceries, coffee shops, ice cream, and seafood are all very close. We recommend the Surf's Up Seafood Market near the Food Lion. They have very reasonable prices, great customer service, good selection, and the steam pot combo for two or four are a great deal compared to eating out.

I'd definitely stay here again if given the opportunity. It was convenient, well-stocked with the basics, comfortable and quite affordable. Definitely a great place for a simple, rustic-style visit to a great spot in the Outer Banks.

PEACEFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5
This is not Rehoboth. This is not the Hamptons.

Nirvana offers beach front living without the glam, stress, crowds and commercialism of many east coast resorts. Our stay was refreshing, peaceful and soul cleansing. The beach is a stone's throw from the house and the cool blue water off the Outer Backs is unmatched north of the Carolinas.

We have nothing but wonderful things to say about the house and it's owners.
