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.

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. 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.

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
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.
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.
Our family had such a wonderful time staying at the Casablanca. Everything was just as described. The home was very well stocked and extremely clean. We enjoyed the quietness of the Salvo area as well. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us and we hope to return again soon.
Casablanca is an amazing house: plenty of room, well stocked, clean, hot tub, washer & dryer, great location (if you like quiet) and close to the beach. We stayed a week with another couple and it suited our needs sufficiently. The only drawback was the inventory list that was supposed to be checked upon arrival to the house. While my husband was unloading the vehicle, I went from room to room to make sure the items were there. I spent over an hour on the first night and worked on the kitchen the next morning. Not a good way to start a vacation. It was more like a scavenger hunt. I think that it should not be up to the customer to make sure everything that they have listed was still in the house. I'm talking about soap dishes, fly swatter, number of lighthouses, number of paper plate holders, lounge chairs, plungers etc. Maybe I took it too seriously but I was just doing what I had been told to do. Anyway, other than that, the house is a great deal and would return to it in the future.
We stayed at this magnificent house in Salvo for the week for an all girls trip! This house was amazing, had great views, a game room and was a quick walk to the beach. The owners were very accommodating and made sure all of our needs were met for the week! Casablanca is extremely clean compared to other beach houses we have all stayed at. The kitchen was fully stocked so there was no need to dine out unless we wanted to. We did one large grocery shop at the beginning of our stay and had no reason to leave. The hot tub was also a nice edition while we were there. We couldn't have asked for better weather and the views of the sky at night were breathtaking, stars galore! Salvo is the perfect area to be in...no hustle and bustle like other parts of the OBX while still convenient to almost everything imaginable. We definitely recommend this house and will be back for future vacations! Thanks again :)
Once again we had a wonderful week at Casablanca. It is a perfect home for those looking for space to spread out. Gail is very quick to communicate and make everything perfect for your stay. The home is well stocked with many items you need for the beach, including beach toys, chairs, beach cart, and umbrella. There is plenty of seating for meals and also for lounging. Once again we were sad to leave! Thank you Gail and Daniel for sharing your home with us!
This was our first trip to OBX. We had heard many good reports from our friends, so we thought we would check it out this summer. There were many positive features of Casablanca. The house was very clean, well organized and spacious. We had 8 people in our party, including 4 children, and for a couple of days some friends from Virginia stayed with us, making our number 10. In all cases, there was ample space to sit together in the great room comfortably or to spread out around the house for a little privacy. We had our groceries delivered and stocked by Grocery Stockers prior to our arrival, and this was a great service, allowing us to really relax. The kids loved having their own personal TV's/DVD players in their rooms and had a blast in the game room. The owner, Gail, was very responsive to all our questions, supplied lists of what was provided and what to pack and was generally informative about the area. She took the uncertainty out of our vacation.
We visited the North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island. My kids loved it, and since the aquarium is undergoing some renovations right now, they are offering 25% off the admission price, making it very affordable. We also stopped by a great little burger and ice cream place called Olde Towne Creamery. While there, we met some vacationers staying at Nags Head. They said the water in their area was jarringly cold, however the ocean temperature in Salvo was just right. When we checked the data online, the Salvo water was recorded as 10 degrees warmer than Nags Head. We felt very fortunate in our decision to stay at Casablanca. Every day at the shore was delightful. We are hoping to return next year. Our family had a wonderful and memorable experience!!
Our stay was great. Everything was as pictured and the house was very comfortable. Lots of bathrooms and big family area with open kitchen. The hot tub was excellent and the distance to the beach is easy to handle. The beach is amazing…wide, not crowded at all, great surf. The town had everything you needed nearby and it was fun to explore the nearby towns and enjoy the amazing seafood. The house had everything we needed and I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a place in the Outer Banks.
