About the property

SUNDAY TO SUNDAY rental in season for your travel convenience. We also offer off season check-in on Saturday.

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. An added bonus is that it is less than 5-minute walk from front door to sound side as well! 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. 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.

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, refrigerator with ice maker,wet bar, and microwave 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 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 views of the ocean and the sound. All bedrooms have flat screen televisions and DVD players as well

Included in the price - professional cleaning service, all bed linens and hot tub cleaning twice during your stay. A starter supply of amenities is provided at no charge to include paper towels, toilet paper, kitchen sponge, hand dish detergent, and automatic dish detergent. This well maintained, clean home is PET and SMOKE free - strictly enforced.

Our keyless entry system gets you started on vacation as soon as you arrive on the island. There is a service that can do food shopping for you and have it waiting in the refrigerators when you arrive if you like.

Beds: 1 king, 1 queen, 4 singles, double futon, extra mattress.

Awesome Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

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.

Cozy cottage at the beach

  • 5 of 5

Cute cozy cottage, conveniently close to the beach. Has everything one might need on their vacation. If you are looking to be away from the crowds and spend time with your family, look no more, this is the place to be. We had really good time staying at the house. The owner is the kindest person you could meet, very responsive and nice.

Fantastic, clean house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our one year old and three year old children. The house was wonderful- great layout, updated, and very clean (the cleanest house we've rented in the OBX since we started coming a decade ago!). It was stocked with everything we needed to be comfortable. There was plenty of space, and we didn't even use the bottom floor. The views from the top deck were beautiful! The walk to the beach access point took a few minutes, and though the walk across the dunes wasn't short, there was a wooden walkway which was a lifesaver! All in all, took about 10 minutes with two small dawdling kids. All in all, it was very easy from check-in to check-out. This may be the first house we consider renting again. Highly recommended!

Great house on a lovely beach.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this home and I can't say enough good things about our experience with the house and with Gail and Daniel, the owners. They made our family feel welcome and genuinely care about your OBX experience. We traveled with our immediate family, but the house is large enough to accommodate 2 or 3 families. Great outdoor living spaces and a quick walk to the beach over the beautiful dunes. Salvo is slightly more rural than other OBX locations which is great for star gazing and getting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We truly had a magical time.

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 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.
