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. There is parking if you decide to drive, and they have a bath house.
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 just down Rt. 12. Waves Market and Deli next door to St. Waves has awesome sandwiches and sides along with specialty groceries and a candy shop. 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. Terrific coffee shop at Kitty Hawk Kites.
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 that you can download before you come-some available on the island if you forget) - something everyone will always remember.

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 Dare County
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 tri-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.

Awesome Family Vacation
This was our second stay here and it was just as great as the first one. We love this area and this house. The outdoor spaces are very enjoyable and the house is very comfortable. We feel very much at home staying here. The owners were very helpful in planning our vacation and the information they have in the house is also helpful. The family time our 3 generations (ranging from age 1 to age 68) shared at this house will last a lifetime. We highly recommend this house to others who are looking for a great vacation beach house.
Our goal is to make our beach house your home away from home! Come back anytime.
I left a detailed review of our excellent stay on Gail's booking app and would highly recommend this property!
Very good experience
Our time in the house was very pleasant. Everything was there that we needed. We were five adults and a three-year-old, and we had plenty of room. The shore was close and the Salvo Day-Use Area was a short drive away on the Sound. We did have to drive 45 minutes to the attractions on Manteo and Kitty Hawk, but we were glad to come back to the comparatively uncrowded neighborhood and beach at Salvo. Gail was a very concerned hostess, writing back quickly to answer questions before we arrived, but once there, we had no need to get in touch with her since there were no problems. I highly recommend staying here!
Great OBX Stay
Cozy beach house near the ocean, well appointed, good value and just as advertised, hosts were accessible without being in your face.
I would recommend to a friend.
Great location and accommodations.
We enjoyed a lovely week in Salvo! This home is situated in the perfect location, walking distance from both ocean and sound. Our two small children had no trouble making the trek. The house was set up perfectly for our family, along with the grandparents. Lots of room to spread out and relax. We enjoyed the hot tub on several cool evenings, and kids had fun playing air hockey downstairs. We would definitely consider coming back here and staying again!
