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.

Needs updating

  • 2 of 5

Location and size are the reasons we reserved this house for our extended family - we were not disappointed by the space of the house and proximity to the beach. We were unhappy though with uncomfortable beds, old and worn furnishings, and antiquated electronics in bedrooms. The kitchen was poorly stocked for food preparation. We left earlier than our departure date and will not rebook.

Owner's Response: Dear Bryan C, Thank you for staying at our home, and I am very sorry that the house did not meet your expectations. The only issue you spoke to me about was the sleeper sofa in the media room, which we will seek to improve. As far as the kitchen supplies, I will check with the maintenance/cleaning team to see what is missing. Finally, the televisions in the bedrooms are tub televisions that also have DVD capacity. Although not wide screen, they do facilitate the purpose as they are not the main televisions in the house. I will contact you directly to understand better your concerns. I wish you the best in your future vacations. Kind regards, Dan

Relaxing Ocean Stay

  • 4 of 5

I came here with a group during off-season and the area and the home were perfect for what we were looking for. It felt like we had the whole island to ourselves and we loved watching the sun rise and set over the ocean from the top floor balconies every day. The ocean was a short dune walk away; the beach was pristine and never crowded. The house itself was well-furnished and spacious, with endless balconies, bathrooms, and entertainment. My group was never bored and the common areas were large enough to accommodate us all! Overall, the group had a wonderful time, and we will definitely come back to stay again if possible!

The only setbacks we encountered were infinitesimal. The house was flooded with sunlight which was beautiful for the most part, but some of the rooms did not have window treatments to block out the sun if needed. Also, if your party fills the occupancy of the house, I suggest bringing more towels, blankets, pillows and paper products. My group ran through towels and paper products quickly, especially considering the hot-tub/beach activities.

This is a beautiful and accommodating home minutes from the beach! I highly recommend to any visitor looking for a relaxed escape to the ocean.

Better than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

What better review can there be but to say that we came home and booked a week for next year! We are a large family and it has been many years since we had all been away together - Shore's Heaven was just what we needed. This home provided all we hoped for in its' size, accommodations, amenities, comfort and location - it is a very beautiful, relaxing spot away from our normal, way too busy lives. We thank you, Dan, for sharing your lovely home with us and for your personal attention to our inquiries, etc. God bless you!

Beautiful Home with Small Details Lacking

  • 3 of 5

The home itself is absolutely stunning and located on a cul- de -sac within a housing community within walking distance ro the beach. The home advertises a play station 2 but neglects to mention that ALL the games have "walked away" by previous guests and empty cases were left. I ended up buying my son games even though we don't own a playstation at home so he could use it. The one remote to control the entire house is a nightmare and took several attempts by Dan to fix the issue remotely with the help of my husband. Two out of four of the hot tub jets were fully pumping and functional with the foam headrests completely gone. The pool maintenence man was scheduled twice and only showed up once (the day before we were leaving) along with the maintenence man from Shore Details to replace 8 light bulbs that were blown out sometime before our arrival but was taken care of the day before we were leaving. He actually had to leave and come back cause he ran out of bulbs. There aren't any DVDS for movie night (we had a few nights of rain) cause they too grew legs and someone helped themselves prior to our arrival. We were looking forward to using the beach cart to haul chairs etc only to find out the tires were flat. One of two dishwashers is broke (we told the maintenence man who said they tend to go quickly due to use) with the utensil holder not shutting correctly and the top drawer not sitting correctly which was beyond normal repair. The day before we leave the ice maker stops making ice.... at one point during the stay I was interested in possibly rebooking for next year. However after all the minors not being addressed I can only wonder if it will happen again or was this just a fluke? Either way, our family should have an effortless vacation as so promoted... otherwise Dan is a nice guy just needs to start reinvesting a bit more on deposits so things don't walk off and can be enjoyed by all. He did offer to let us stay again next year for the same rate and as much as I appreciate the offer, I think we will be heading elsewhere.

Owner's Response: Dear Sarah, Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on Shore's Heaven. We do take all comments seriously. As you know, we have a management company, Shore Details, that is very responsive to guest issues. We encourage our guest to take full advantage of their services to get things to where they need to be. Be it light bulbs, the appliances, or the beach cart, Shore Details is there to make it right. Should we be fortunate enough to have you reconsider and rent in the future, we would expect a better job with the details. There are actually two remotes that control the two main entertainment units in the house, in the Great Room and the Media Room. There are also televisions in each of the bedrooms and Game Room each wit their native remotes. From time to time, the Great Room system gets a little out of whack from tampering or even weather, and we do our best to get it fixed as quickly as possible. Again, it is meant to be a positive and not negative. For instance, the guest who came after you had an issue that turned out that the television in the Great Room had been switched from HDMI to another input. These things happen and we try to rectify as quickly as possible. With regard to the video games and movies, people unintentionally bring those home from time to time, and we do our best to ensure that what we advertise is in fact what people experience. It is hard, however, to catch these things and respond on a timely basis. Regarding the pool, Three Seas, our pool and hot tub people are at our home on Sunday and Wednesday. I have asked them to leave a receipt in the future of some sort as they typically come early on Wednesday so as not to disturb anyone. They informed me that the hot tub was fine, but that the diverter has been turned off for four of the jets. Again, these things happen, and I apologize for the inconvenience. Sarah, as we discussed upon your departure, I understand that things were not perfect, and I feel very bad that you did not have the typical Shore's Heaven vacation. Our goal is to ensure each of our guest have the most enjoyable vacation imaginable. I have spoken to each of the service providers about your concerns and we will be putting in place procedures to ensure that this is not repeated. Kind regards, Dan

Had a wonderful time - the long drive from Florida was worth it

  • 3 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Shores Heaven. The house was beautiful and the property was well maintained and clean when we arrived. But, I have to say that we were a bit disappointed with the entertainment system. The TV had to be reset several times by Mr. Spaventa from a remote location and the DVD/VHS did not work at all. The music outside on the decks did not work either. While Mr. Spaventa was very apologetic, this was disappointing as this was the 20th Anniversary of our vacation group and everyone had plans to show movies from past vacations as memories to cherish!

While we had no children with us, any family who did would have been hard pressed to entertain the little ones with no TV or gaming system to use.

Owner's Response: Liz, I again apologize for the difficulties you experienced with the video system in the great room. We did have our AV person come to address the issue. As you know, there are also DVD and VCR players in both the media and game room. The issue in the Great Room has since been addressed with a replacement DCD/VCR. We are gald you enjoyed the house overall and hope you might consider our home in the future. Kind regards, Dan
