Space 3,500 sq ft

About the property

6 bedrooms, 7.5 bathrooms, sleeps 12-14

Looking for a relaxing place to spend with family and friends? Come and enjoy the OBX of yesteryear in the quiet and solitude of the Salvo beaches, while basking in the luxurious amenities of this upscale home. Linens (sheets & towels) are included, with beds made. Only beach towels will be needed.

This is the third house from the beach and only 100 feet to beach access.

Tired of starting your vacation in a rental company office or the grocery store instead of the beach? No problem. With our keyless entry, you go right to the house. Our concierge service (small fee) will do the food shopping for you and have it waiting in the refrigerators when you arrive. Let the elevator transport your things to the bedroom or kitchen. After that, all you need to do is go to the guest closet, pull out the beach chairs and head for the beach.

To add to your privacy, every bedroom has its own bathroom. This home includes a game room with a pool table, an elevator, and a theater room. The theater room has a 61” DLP TV with surround sound stereo and Play Station II. The six bedrooms each have a TV/DVD combo unit, with one of the bedrooms being handicap friendly. In addition, the master bedroom on the top floor has a Jacuzzi. High speed Internet access points exist in the den, theater room, and rec room. Just bring your own laptop. The Great Room has a TV with surround sound stereo. Enjoy the private pool and 6 person hot tub with pool side stereo speakers.

The Cleaning and Maintenance team is answerable to us. This means you can expect a very clean and well maintained house on your arrival versus what you will find with rental company managed properties. And, within 48 hours, they will call you to ensure your expectations are met.

Our Concierge Service (additional fee) is truly one of our unique features. Whether it's doing the food shopping, delivery a meal or whatever you might need to enhance your vacation, the Concierge team is here to help.

About Dan Spaventa

Hello, and thank you for taking the time to consider our home in Salvo, NC. We are from the Philadelphia, PA area and have been vacationing on the Outer Banks since 2002. No matter where they live, they always look forward to our time together on the Outer Banks.

Dan Spaventa purchased this house in 2006

Why Dan Spaventa chose Salvo

We've built and furnished this home with everything we wanted to find in our perfect vacation home. A short walk (100 feet) to the pristine beaches, where there is plenty of room to spread out and have some fun, Salvo was the perfect location.

We always wanted to start our vacation on the beach, not waiting for keys in a rental company office, or standing in line at the Food Lion, or wasting time making beds or lugging our things up the stairs. We've implemented keyless entry, so you will have your code before you even leave for OBX. No more fumbling around for keys. Our concierge service, for a small fee, will pick up your grocery order and stock the refrigerators for you. You will find the beds made and linens provided. And the house comes with child equipment like pack and plays and a high chair.

What makes this house unique

We have furnished the house to address your comfort needs, and with each bedroom having its own bathroom (plus 1.5 more bathrooms), there is never any waiting in line. Also, the private pool and hot tub, not to mention the volleyball court, is there for your use whenever a beach day isn't quite what you wish to do.

No need to pack those beach chairs, boogey boards and beach toys. The Guest Closet will have those things waiting for you when you arrive.

Being so close to the ocean and Sound, spectacular sunrises and sunsets are a daily experience.

Disappointed with the cleanliness; floors and toilets were dirty. Pool was too hot to use.

Owner's Response: Dear Greg, I am surprised to hear of the cleanliness issue of the house. I will certainly bring this up to the management company, Shore Details. Shore Details prides itself on doing an excellent job in this area. We have noticed a big improvement in the cleanliness of our home since they took over. I will speak with them today to get this rectified. I am very sorry you had this experience. The reason for sharing Shore Details' phone number with the guest is that if they are unhappy or see anything not as expected, that they are available to address the issue. A lack of cleanliness would certainly have been rectified immediately. Nonetheless, I apologize for the state you found the house. I will speak with Shore Details to ensure this issue does not occur again. Regarding the pool, we spoke during your stay that there was an issue with the pool heater. The water temperature was 95 due to a faulty switch. It has since been repaired. Again, we apologize for the inconveniences during your stay. Kind regards, Dan

Great house, plenty of room, clean, owner is extremely helpful and would highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The pool was key for all of our little ones as the ocean there is quite rough, the beach was extremely windy and the walk there with all of our stuff was a bit of a struggle (beach is close but you are not "on" the beach). However, we did find that across the street on the bay side, there is a little beach area with grills that was perfect for the kids. The house was clean, there was plenty of room, in a quite little neighborhood, close to the ocean and the owner was great to work with. My only complaints would be that they only provided each person with one bath towel for the week, there was no sponges, dish detergent, paper towels, laundry detergent, or trash bags, so we had to go back out to the store pretty soon upon arrival. I was hoping in a house rented for the week, most of this stuff would be available. But other than that, it was great. Would highly recommend! If you haven't been to Salvo, it's nice and quiet, don't expect Nag's Head because it's not. But there are plenty of nice places to go and groceries are a close 10 min drive, or for quick stuff, the Blue Whale is a 2 min care ride or 5 min bike ride.

Beautiful--Perfect for our stay!

  • 5 of 5

My Fiancé and I stayed here with several friend to celebrate are bachelor and bachelorette weekends together. The house fit us all perfectly, everything we needed was there. The pool and hot tub were perfect (we wished we could turn the heat in the pool down a bit just because the days got pretty hot) but at night it was just right! Thank you for letting us rent your beautiful home and look forward to staying again. The home owner was very helpful giving us all the information we needed before we arrived we would love to come again!

Relaxing, beautiful and fun

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at shores heaven. The whole extended family stayed. Including the little ones. They loved the house as well and want to go back!! My favorite part was how close it is to the beach and the views from the decks. The House was perfect for our stay.

Only updates I’d make is the pull out couch in media room. We weren’t able to get it to work. And having the hot tub serviced before each new renter.

Besides those two things Dan was great even from hundreds of miles away to help with any issues that occurred. OBX is now a family favorite. Thanks Dan!

Owner's Response: Elizabeth, Thank you for your kind words. I will have Shore Details look at the sleeper sofa to see what the issue is. They have been able to get it to work in the past when a guest had difficulty. The hot tub and pool are serviced twice a week, once before your stay and then mid-week. I will speak to them about this to ensure better execution. Thank you for staying at our home, and I hope you will visit us again! Kind regards, Dan
