Salvo House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

SUNDAY TO SUNDAY rental in season for your travel convenience. Flexible off season check-in.

Located oceanside in quiet, safe area on private lane. Less than 5-minute walk from front door to the ocean with no streets to cross! Wide white sand beaches with sparkling water. Less than 5-minute walk from front door to soundside! See the ocean from the second and third floor decks. Beautiful views of Cape Hatteras Wildlife Refuge. Decks are covered in several areas, so you can be outside even if it drizzles. The second floor deck gives you the option of sitting in the sun, sitting in the shade, sitting under a covered deck, or sitting on the screened porch. Dry entry under the house.

Day-use park within walking distance on sound side perfect for kite boarding, paddle boarding, kayaking, and swimming for small children - water shallow and calm. Perfect for floaties.

Like to run, ride a bike or just walk - awesome walking/bike path that goes for miles. St. Waves Seafood for freshest seafood caught locally. Waves Market and Deli next door has awesome sandwiches and sides along with specialty groceries. All local owned restaurants in town with friendly customer service. Local owned ice cream parlor and fruit stands. Live bands at Waterman's on the weekends.

Either fish at the nearby pier in Rodanthe, fish in the surf, rent a charter boat for the sound, or go deep sea fishing. Climb the Hatteras Lighthouse, the tallest in North America, just 30 minutes south. Take the free ferry to Ocracoke Island to see wild horses, explore the quaint fishing village, or take a family bike tour. Or take the kids to the aquarium in Manteo. There is SO MUCH to do and see in the area. Avoid the development and bustle of the rest of the Outer Banks and come relax, swim in the ocean, and enjoy a week of gorgeous sunrises and sunsets.

Casablanca is located adjacent to the exclusive South Beach Community of Salvo on the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. There are exquisite, unspoiled views of the Atlantic Ocean and Pamlico Sound unsurpassed by other areas. There are numerous ways to reach the beach from the house – via an established walking path, or over a wooden boardwalk, or even with your four-wheel drive vehicle (we are one tenth of a mile away from drivable access.) Any way you choose to walk, there is no highway to cross.

This house is perfect for one family or two or three families vacationing together.

Hatteras Island is one of the few places where you can build a fire on the beach (free permit required) - something everyone will always remember.

There is plenty of parking on the premises. Outside there is a hot/cold shower and covered fish cleaning station. There is a large lockable storage area as part of the house. The park size charcoal grill and picnic table are perfect for outdoor cooking. The first floor includes a bonus room with double futon, full size refrigerator,wet bar, microwave, and VCR player along with a game room that has an air hockey table and a foosball table. Also on this floor is a bedroom with two twin beds and a full bath. The washer/dryer is located in the hall.

The second level has cathedral ceilings for an open, airy feeling. That’s where you’ll find the main living area with a great room, dining area, eat-in chef’s kitchen with bar, master queen bedroom, and full bath. The great room is equipped with a Flat screen HDTV, DVD, and CD. Enjoy the DVDs, books, magazines and games that we provide. This master bedroom has access to the deck that wraps around three sides of the second floor. There is a gate on the deck that can be locked to keep the young ones within sight.

The bubbly new hot tub is located on the southwest corner of the deck and adjoins the screened porch with furniture that runs the full length of the back of the house.

The third floor has two bedrooms and a large, shared bathroom with separated toilet and tub. One of the bedrooms has two twin beds. The other is a large king bedroom with its own private deck providing magnificent views of the ocean and the sound. All bedrooms have flat screen televisions and DVD players as well

A starter supply of amenities is provided at no charge to include paper towels, toilet paper, kitchen sponge, dish detergent, automatic dish detergent, hand soap and trash bags.

About Gail or Daniel

Daniel and I enjoy sharing good times with family and friends. We designed and built this beach house with love and care. We are grandparents to six beautiful girls. We wanted a place where the entire family can gather to celebrate one another in a stress free environment. Owning a beach house was a lifelong dream come true for us, and we are happy to share our beautiful home with you!

Gail or Daniel purchased this house in 2008

Why Gail or Daniel chose Salvo

We live an active lifestyle and love being around the water - fishing, kiteboarding, surfing, birding, beach combing, and just listening to the ocean. Salvo offers the best of everything on the Outer Banks. It is located in the trip-villages (a 5 mile stretch including Rodanthe, Waves and Salvo) surrounded by wildlife refuge. The beach is beautiful. The water stays warmer longer due to the Gulf current. After you cross the small double dune, you feel like you've arrived on a remote island - a real slice of paradise. We cannot remember a year that the beach was not high up on the best beach list for the country.

What makes this house unique

We are close to the ocean and the sound, yet far from the hustle and bustle of many beachfront areas on the Outer Banks. You do not hear noise associated with many tourist areas. The wildlife and sheer beauty of time spent on the island leads to a unique vacation. Life here is slower paced so be prepared to unwind. View stars in the sky while soaking in the hot tub. The decks are spacious with plenty of seating - and you can always find a spot in the shade or the sun! The beach is great for volleyball, digging sandcastles, looking for ghost crabs, or just spreading out to enjoy the view. We are meticulous about maintenance, cleanliness, and keeping the decor bright, comfortable and inviting.

Casablanca - a very nice beach house

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casablanca in Salvo. The house was great – everything was in excellent shape. The hot tub was a big hit, both with the young and the old. The house was very clean and well-appointed. There was ample room inside and outside for playing games or just sitting around. The short walk to the beach was no trouble at all. Boogie boards and sand toys were provided. We enjoyed the beach some days, and we took a few short drives on other days to climb a lighthouse, visit the Wright Brothers park, see the Aquarium, and learn about the people of Roanoke Island at Fort Raleigh. Plenty to do for a week or more. We would highly recommend this place if you have 10 or fewer people and want a great vacation!

This was a very good place for a family vacation. The home had plenty of space and was EXTREMELY CLEAN!!! Its great to crawl into a nice clean bed after a long days drive to the beach!! New appliances made preparing meals a joy! The thought put into the furniture, kitchen needs, beach needs and indoor games is very detailed and made it very relaxing. The beach was very nice and the ability to have bonfires was a great experience. It was awesome to sit on one of the wrap around outside decks and just enjoy the scenery! The sun rise and sets were beautiful!! We also had the full moon and watched it rise over the ocean with a bonfire, awesome! Book this home today!!

Believe the Hype: The Casablanca is the Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

The Casablanca proved the perfect place for a family vacation. First, the overall experiences was crowned by Gail's gracious hospitality, friendly and fast communication, and great tips about the local area. The house itself fit the bill: clean, quiet, well-appointed. In fact, it is a beautiful and comfortable home with plenty of space to spread out. All sorts of activities await. We cooked and had great family dinners (every appliance you could think of), enjoyed the various patios on the house, enjoyed the views, found excellent places to read, nap, and hang-out. Gail and Daniel are very thoughtful about maximizing the guest experience in their home, and we are grateful for it. We could go on and on about Casablanca but our best recommendation would be: go and experience it for yourself. We'll surely return for our next OBX vacation. Thanks so much to the homeowners, we couldn't have been happier.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed the beach house and all the amenities. We try to anticipate what guests may appreciate and then supply it!!!! The small things add up to provide a carefree, memorable experience - from numerous "getaway spots" to the outdoor lighting to the newly installed covering under/over some decks so you don't get wet if it rains while you are outside to the well stocked kitchen.

Once again Casablanca didn't disappoint!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Casablanca. Once again we had an amazing time. Gail is extremely helpful and quick to respond to our questions before, during and after our stay. I can't say enough how perfect the layout of this home is. We had three families staying in our party and everyone was able to have plenty of space. Once again the home was spotless and very well maintained. Beach toys, chairs, and umbrella are all provided. Anytime I hear of someone looking to go to the Outer Banks I always recommend Casablanca.

Salvo vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at Casablanca, and if we don't find our own home down there we will definitely be back next year. There is everything that we needed to make our vacation relaxing right there. The kitchen is fully equipped with pots, pans & utensils. I like to cook so that is important. Neat and clean. After a long day at the beach or just out sight seeing it is great to hop into the hot tub and watch the sunset. The weather was nice, just one rainy evening. Otherwise we were all in shorts and barefoot on the beach. Fish started to bite towards the end of our stay, and the guys were happy. Great time had by all.

Beautiful house in Salvo

  • 5 of 5

Exceptionally clean beautiful house in Salvo. House was very comfortable and the owners had everything written out that we needed and was very well furnished in the kitchen. Hot tub on the main floor was great. Enjoyed it very much. The location to the beach is not far but it was a little hard to make that track to and from the house to fish on foot. They had a cart you could use but it was very hard to get over the dunes with it. Overall, our stay was great and I would definitely stay there and again and recommend it to my friengs

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write a review, and we are glad that you were pleased with the house. We are sorry you experienced difficulty carrying all your fishing gear with the beach cart. We have tried several styles and keep looking for a better alternative. One of the reasons we bought beach chairs that you can carry like a backpack is to minimize the need for the cart. But we know that fishermen need lots of gear!!!! You may want to drive to the ramp less than a mile from the house, park if you don't have 4-wheel drive, and then wheel the beach cart on the paved road to the beach when you come back. We'd love to have you stay with us again.
