My husband and I bought the Lost Shaker of Salt in February, 2007. We started running the property as a vacation rental by owner in 2008. We live three hours away and go there regularly ourselves. Mike is in retail and I (Erin) am in computers. We are a thirty something couple. We love the Jimmy Buffett lifestyle. We love music, cocktails on the top deck, and having a great time. We are pround memebers of the Parrothead Club of Tidewater. We wanted our cabana to be relaxing, fun, and cheerful, all at the same time. We think we accomplished that at the Lost Shaker of Salt. Come check us out, we know you will be pleased!
Erin purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why Erin chose Dare County
Mike and I got married up the beach in Kill Devil Hills seven years ago and ever since it has been our dream of owning a piece of our own paradise.

Awesome! Totally recommend staying here. The cabanas are right on the beach.
It is so beautiful here. The cabanas are right on the beach. Very relaxing. Hatteraus is a quite and peaceful town. I liked hiking the woods in Buxton, and seeing the lighthouse. Also highly recommend a day trip to Ocarcoke. But best of all- Erin's cute cabana has everything you need for a great trip.
Clean, vibrant, perfect winter getaway!
The unit was adorable. So bright and cheerful which was exactly what we needed in the winter. The beach is stunning. We saw a seal pup one day basking on the beach. So incredible! Had a great
time. Thank you for proving such a fabulous winter getaway.
Cute, Cozy, Will be back
I loved this little cabana. It was perfect for my long weekend. It had all the essentials and the the beach was right there.
A few minor improvements needed....
Lost Shaker of Salt is a small but comfortable cabana, close to the beach. There were two minor but annoying problems. There were three remote controls for the TV/DVD player. They weren't properly marked, and a couple didn't have batteries, which wasn't obvious at first. Eventually, we figured out which remote control operated the TV. And the DVD player didn't work, which is unfortunate because we had some bad weather. When told about the problems, the owner said the TV would be replaced, suggesting that she may have known that it had problems. The other small and annoying problem is that there are no screens in several important places - the sliding glass door, the front door, and the window over the sleep sofa. We couldn't have cross-ventilation without letting insects inside, forcing us to use the air conditioning when it really wasn't needed. I realize these are fairly small things, but the owners should take care of them for the next visitors.
Bugs and cnfusion
Cabana was unclean. There were bugs and range, back of tv and top of refrigerator dirty, sticky and dusty. Unit needs pest control. Had t disinfect unit. Lower level outdoor light did not work. Another couple had code to our door and were letting themselves in because they were told they had same cabana. No one could reach a representative to clear up the confusion. No remote for DVD. We drove miles to rent from Red Box and could not watch our movie.
Beach and view were lovely.
I am sorry for the issues during your stay. We use the system that VRBO uses to communicate the check and latest key codes to the guests. I had just changed the code and forgot one place to update it in VRBO, I am sorry for the confusion.
I am very sorry you did not find the unit up to your cleanliness standards. We have the unit professionally cleaned at least once a week, sometimes more, I am counting on them to keep it up, and I am sorry they did not meet your expectations. I will address it with them.
As far as bug and pest control, there is one company on the island that services everyone and we use them monthly in all of our units. I will send them out and they will take care of it right away.
The most relaxing vacation ever
The property was just like it was featured on VRBO . It was bright and welcoming and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay . Even on rainy days I enjoyed my stay because the cabana was arranged where you felt like you had Lotsa room and it was a ray of sunshine i’m hoping to stay two weeks next year instead of one like I did this year . Thank you guys for making my vacation the best I’ve ever had ! Cathy
