WATERFRONT, PRIVATE BEACH/HOT TUB/QUIET. ENJOY SPECTACULAR SUNSETS FROM THE DECK

Avon House Rental Photos and Description

Enjoy the hot tub, wrap around deck. Perfect location for a relaxed vacation!

SOUND MIND & BODY sits right on Pamlico sound. Private beach/water access, million dollar views of water and stunning sunsets, hot tub, wrap around deck. Perfect location for a relaxed vacation - unwind and recharge! Windusrfing, kiteboarding, kayaking, sailing, fishing, surfing abound. Quaint fisherman village with sailboats and a fresh catch for your family barbeque. Fish market down the street. Nearby Spa, swimming pool, tennis courts.

A very serene and relaxed setting to unwind and recharge!

Very quiet, family friendly. Right on top of the sound. Ocean side beaches are a mile away. Kayaks and stand-up paddle boarding are available for rent at the property or at the nearby shops.

Folks often ask me why I choose to be on the sound side instead of the ocean. It's a matter of personal preference, of course. But here are my thoughts:

Sound vs. Ocean side...

Sound side is more serene, relaxed and quiet and you don't feel like you are sharing your vacation with hundreds of other beach goers. Having said that if you want to mix and match you can always cross to the Ocean side - takes 5 min.

I am not an early riser, so even though I love sunrises on the ocean side I am not usually up that early to enjoy them, especially when on vacation. This makes the sunset displays off our deck one of the biggest highlights of this location.

If you have children in your party, depending on how old they are being on the Sound side can be a great advantage - no violent waves or rip currents to worry about. They can simply walk into the calm water and swim, play and enjoy. You also get the homey feel and a contained space where it is easier to watch the kids as it's just you and your family on the beach. Teenagers may want to do some kayaking, windsurfing, sailing or kiteboarding - all better suited for the sound side.

I also like the fact that you can walk to the local fisherman village, watch the sailboats and the simple life that goes on there - just a different feel, more local, less touristy. It's a matter of preference.

If you or your kids/family are into kitesurfing/windsurfing/kayaking/sailing - Sound side is the place to be! Prevailing winds are side-on-shore SW and the water is relatively shallow making it a safer environment for the wind/water sport enthusiasts to enjoy their hobbies. For surfers on the other hand, Oceanside location is certainly the place to be.

All that said, some folks prefer Oceanside locations and there are certainly plenty of gorgeous spots to choose from! Those are usually quite a bit more expensive though.

Avon is Rustic and full of energy. It is a kiteboarding and windsurfing mecca due to ideal wind and beach conditions.

Avon is an old Hatteras Island village that has become synonymous with recreational surf fishing, and the Avon pier is a hot spot for those in pursuit of big gamefish like Red Drum. Just north of Buxton, this once tiny village of watermen and their families has grown to be a highly coveted vacationing experience with pristine, natural beaches and beautiful rental cottages. But Avon still retains its tight knit community feel. Even though you can find fantastic seafood restaurants, a supermarket, and some of the conveniences of home, a rustic atmosphere still permeates Avon.

You may hear Avon referred to as Kinnakeet by some locals. It was the name local tribe of Algonkian Indians gave the area, and later adopted by settlers. But in 1883, the U.S. Postal Service redubbed the village Avon, like they did with most of the Hatteras Island communities.

On the sound side of Avon, on the western side of Highway 12, you may see kiteboarders performing amazing aerial stunts and windsurfers racing across the surface of the Pamlico Sound. Nearby Kite point and Canadian Hole were named after the popularity of this public access spots with kiteboarders and with our visitors from the north. In the early spring, many watersports lovers flock here from Canada, Massachusets, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and other points north, because it is still quite cold at home and these enthusiastic athletes can't wait to have a little fun on the water.

5 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

The house, ''Sound Mind and Body'', is located directly on the Pamlico Sound, 1 mile from the ocean, minutes away by car. Featuring a 180 degree view of the Pamlico Sound, 160 foot bulk-headed lawn with direct stair access to knee high water. From the upper deck see spectacular sunsets and by day watch wind surfers and kite boarders skim across the water; by night see The Milky Way and the Hatteras Island Lighthouse's light. The middle deck has a six person hot tub that is perfect for the cocktail hour sunset observations. The lower level has shaded play areas, lockable storage, dual kayak, kiddie pool, and outdoor showers. The owners like good food and have equipped the kitchen so you can prepare any kind of meal you like. House comes with the usual kitchen amenities plus assorted goodies like a rice cooker and bread machine (Sorry, no torch for the creme brulee.)

Other Amenities: Deck/Patio has the best Adirondack chairs we could find plus chaise lounges, patio chairs and a picnic table on the upper deck and another in the covered parking area. Huge bulk-headed lawn on Pamlico Sound, Racks and Storage for surfing gear, kayak, huge collection of kitchen utensils, fish cleaning table, outdoor showers, kiddie pool, spa & gym nearby, birding. Video store local, Cable has HBO, etc.

Game closet on lower level with boogie boards, beach chairs, lawn games.
