About John Burns

My primary residece is in New England, about 30 miles north of Boston, also close to the beaches and the water. I am an avid outdoorsman and when I am not working I prefer to be engaged in any number of outdoor activities. Excepting the summer months, I try to spend as much time on Hatteras Island as my work and family commitments will allow.

John Burns purchased this cottage in 2009

Why John Burns chose Cape Hatteras

After vacationing for many years on the Outer Banks, initially with a focus of windsurfing and eventually kiteboarding, my dream was to own a simple, low manitenance, property in Avon that I could share with my family, friends. With easy access to everything in Avon including the beaches and popular kiteboarding spots, DeckDaze is centrally located on the Outer Banks, offering easy access to everything that Hatteras Island has to offer and a great place to relax at the end of a day at the beach. Simple Living!

What makes this cottage unique

Located in a quiet, peacefull, residential neighborhood on the south end of Avon DeckDaze is very close to all of the major stores and amenities in Avon; Food Lion, Ace Hardware, The Movie Theater, and all Restaurants and Shops. The beach is 1/2 mile walk or about a 2 minute drive to the 4X4 access ramp. The large deck with views of the sound and a six person hot tub is my favorite spot to decompress.

Beautiful soundside vacation home in centrally located Avon, NC

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed here for several years in a row during October. When I find a place I like I will often come back year after year. This Fall I noted the Owner, John, who is very easy to deal with and accommodating had remodeled the interior of the home with all new furnishing including not only every piece of furniture but all the beds, sheets and even new towels. This is why I choose to write a review this year. Its clear that he takes great pride in this home and wants his guests to be very satisfied and comfortable. I have always arrived to clean home ready to go..

The house in the perfect location with a view of the Sound from its expansive deck and hot tub yet just a short walk to the ocean. The Food Lion is 3 minutes away with restaurants etc a few minutes more. Buxton and Hatteras just a short drive south. This part of Avon is quiet with lots of greenery between the homes and very pretty. Being in Avon is the perfect spot for wind sport enthusiasts.

Looking forward to next year's stay!

Bed bugs ! Do not rent this home.

  • 1 of 5

This home has a bed bug infestation.

Owner's Response: Please read my history of reviews from this summer, bed bugs have never been an issue in my house. As soon as the last tenant of the summer reported that they thought there might be bed bugs in the house, I had the entire house stripped down to the bare floors. I actually removed all of the furniture, all of the beds (both mattresses and box springs),all of the carpeting, and basically everything in the house; all towels, all linens, etc. Next I had a professional pesticide company come in and treat the house October 2016 (2X). Next I redecorated the entire interior of the house with with all new beds, new furniture, and new linens and towels. I have just spent 10 days at the house and the house is pest free!

Great Place, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This place was great, John the owner was very easy to deal with. We are a family of 4 from the UK and have traveled up and down the NC and SC coast renting many places over the last few years. This is one of the best.

Only bad points was the cleaner - she somewhat grumpy as we arrived early and there was no gas in the barbecue.

One fantastic but simple point - fridge was full of sauces ketchup etc. and there was dishwasher fluid and all other basics - we have rented so many houses were they remove everything even the toilet roll.....We always leave some stuff like this as we travel about, but I find it amazing that some rentals dont even have one toilet roll when you are paying $hundreds per night.

Place is very near the beach 5 min walk or you can take the car and park if u are really lazy.

Also having been to OB before Avon is one of the best places, it has great fishing pier and a few places to eat and drink, it is easy to get down to Hatteras or further up the coast. We have camped at Rodanthe/Waves/Salvo before but I find that area both badly developed in addition to now getting developed but not in a good way and generally a bit of a dump. Also the price of the campsites round here mean you are better off renting a house.


- Better than described

- Very well maintained

- Great customer service

- would recommend this property to anyone

- very near to beach, great fishing pier 2min drive, near to Food Lion and other stores + few restaurants and Bars

My kids even made good use of the Hot Tub even though it was summer.

Many Thanks to John for doing a great job and keeping the place in fantastic condition.

We had a great time at DeckDaze for the fourth!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at DeckDaze! It wasn't too far from the ocean, and the house was the perfect size! The house is also in a great location on obx, there was a grocery store close and lots of restaurants and seafood nearby. We would absolutely book DeckDaze again!

A Very Nice Place - In A Very Nice Place

  • 5 of 5

John's DeckDaze vacation rental offered us a very comfortable accommodation while we explored and played on Hatteras Island. Everything was clean and serviceable, as-advertised and as-expected. No surprises, nothing disappointed. His driving directions were spot-on, and John was very responsive and helpful with the couple of inquiries we made of him.

Avon is a lovely little town. All the people we encountered, locals and vacationers, were very pleasant. There is a large Food Lion supermarket just a half-mile away from this rental, and there are many unique restaurants, eateries, ice cream shoppes (yum!) and everything else you might want/need close by. The closest ocean-side beach is just a 1/4 mile walk away (or, drive it if you must, there's a free parking lot there).

We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our stay. We hope to be able to return to the OBX again in years to come.
