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.

Shore's Heaven - Third House from the Beach!
average rating of 4.4166665 based on 24 reviews

Overall a great house but does need some updating. Will explain below.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week enjoying family and friends. The weather was ok considering it was late October. We did not use the pool, outside shower, or jacuzzi. We did use both grills and cleaned them afterwards. They had not been cleaned by previous renters. One of the dishwashers leaked and the shower door fell off (while being used) in the MBR. We called that evening and the following morning a repair person came promptly to take care of these 2 issues.

Pros: Elevator, great open floor plan, 2 dishwashers and refrigerators.

Needed improvements: living room furniture uncomfortable and sparse, MBR shower door unstable ( fell off) but was repaired promptly, carpet unclean, couldn't get gas logs to work, mattress in main floor master very poor, pull out sofa bed in bad condition, no sheets provided for this mattress nor trundle bed, sheets were not already on top bunk bed, DVDs not working, several windows (lever type) were not working.

Safety issues: the railing on the deck was loose in several areas (deck on the main floor of MBR, deck off of dining room, front bedroom on the left side on level with 4 bedrooms.

Owner's Response: Dear Mary Lou, Thank you for your stay at our home. I also appreciate you pointing out some issues. As you are aware, Shore Details is responsible for any issues that arise that need to be rectified. As you pointed out, they promptly came and repaired the shower door. They are also responsible for all of the other points you made. With regard to the dirty carpet, they were cleaned after your departure, so I apologize that they were not done sooner. The carpets have been cleaned this season three times, once at the beginning, in July and then at the end of October. I will ask Shore Details to be more vigilant on this. I will speak to Shore Details regarding the lack of sheets for the upper bunk bed, trundle and pyramid bed. The upper bunk should have been made with sheets available for the trundle and sleeper sofa. For the gas logs, Shore Details have directions on how to start the fireplace. Thank you for letting me know about the windows and loose railings. I have contacted Shore Details to remedy the situation today. Thank you for letting me know about the mattress. We replaced several mattresses during this past season. We will look to replace this one as well. The DVD works through the Control 4 remote. Contacting Shore Details regarding this issue would have brought my audio person in to correct this issue. Mary Lou, I am very sorry you had these difficulties. I will work with Shore Details to remedy these things so that in the future, they are not an issue. Problems do happen from time to time, which is why we have Sore Details available to remedy any concern. Thank you, again, for writing a complete list of concerns which will enable us to ensure a better experience in the future. Kind regards, Dan Update: 12/5/2017 Update: Issues regarding the shaky railings have been addressed. A new king mattress for the top floor bedroom was be delivered on December 5, 2017.

Owner's Response: M, Thank you for your stay! Apologies, again, for the backup fail that prevented the larger entertainment system from working initially and the misplaced TV remote. Glad we were able to rectify that quickly. We hope to see you again next year. Dan

Much Needed R&R

  • 5 of 5

Shore's Heaven never disappoints. Between the gorgeous views (and jaw dropping sunsets!), proximity to the beach, and accommodations, Shore's Heaven offered the much needed respite from life and work craziness. We were pleasantly surprised to find such a stocked kitchen (we're big cookers) and had a blast making meals for our family/friends to gather around after fun in the sun at the beach or pool. Big thank you to the owners for sharing their gorgeous home with us—we will back back!

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 Update as of 8/3/17 Bryan, I thought I would further provide an update. . Since your visit, we have put 32" flat screen TVs in all of the bedrooms and game room. In addition, in the next several weeks, all of the bed comforters will be replaced, along with all of the pillows in the house. A new set of pots and pans have been added to what was there, as well as additional glassware have been added. Thank you for listing your concerns, and helping us maintain Shore's Heaven as one of the premier houses on the Outer Banks. Kind regards, Dan Update 8/15 All bedrooms now have refreshed comforters and the bunk bedroom has new mattresses on the pyramid bed. In addition, the sleeper sofa was checked and Shore Details was able to open it and set it up and put it away with no issue. Perhaps it was caught up when you attempted to use it. Thank you for your review to point out deficiencies. We believe all of the concerns have been addressed. Kind regards, Dan
