About the property

5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, Sleeps 12

This large, ocean view home is located in the pristine Cape Hatteras Nat'l Seashore with its unspoiled beaches. The beautiful, non-crowded beach is directly across the street from this well-appointed 5 bedroom home. Minutes away is sightseeing, shopping, restaurants, outdoor activities, and charter boat fishing.

Friday to Friday rental. You won't miss sitting in hours of traffic on Saturday. Start and end your vacation with a full weekend.

With ocean and sound views, VIRGINIA DARE has all the necessities for a great vacation. Many repeat guests love that they have everything they need to relax in our home. Yet many popular activities and sights are just a short ride away.

The first floor boasts a game room with a pool table where everyone can have hours of fun, bedroom with two sets of bunks, a half bath, bar & wine refrigerators and the entrance to the private heated (optional) pool and sun deck. Relax at the pool and listen to your favorite tunes from the superior sound system where volume is controlled on pool deck.

The second floor has three ocean-side bedrooms with sliding-glass doors to large east and south decks and bubbly six-person hot tub. The first bedroom has two twins, the second one a queen. The third bedroom is a master suite with a king and private bath. A second full bath and laundry room are located on this level along with a quiet area with desk for one who needs to keep in touch with business while away.

Dine in the third-level, ocean view, great room with tall ceilings, 42' flat screen TV, south and east decks, half bath, wet bar with second full size refrigerator with second icemaker, breakfast bar, chef-appointed kitchen, and seating for 16. Located off the comfortably and creatively furnished great room is a fifth, ocean view, master bedroom with a king, private bath and deck access.

Sun worshipers will love the miles of decks and loads of deck furniture. Enjoy music from the extensive sound system while swimming in the pool or relaxing in the hot tub.

Before or after the hectic pace of the summer, take advantage of the spring and fall months. The water temperatures are warm and rates are low. April and May and September and October are some the prettiest months on the Outer Banks with a slower pace.

We think you will agree, VIRGINIA DARE is the FIRST LADY OF THE COAST.

About Sherry & Joe Pino

The Pino Family

We have been vacationing on the Outer Banks of NC for almost 30 years.

Joe visited the OBX as a teenager with a neighbor camping in Salvo. He loved it then and came back to fish throughout college.

We returned with our two young children in the mid 1980's first renting and then owning a small cottage on Ocracoke.

In 2000 we looked for additional rental property, selecting Avon for it's good beach and quiet neighborhood. The town of Avon has just enough business to meet our guests needs with Outlet Malls, area attractions and historical sites just a short drive away,

Our children are now adults and have never missed family vacations on the OBX even thru their college years.

With the addition of our first grandchild last year our tradition will continue thru the next generation.

Sherry & Joe Pino purchased this house in 2000

Why Sherry & Joe Pino chose Avon

In 2012 we have gone Rent By Owner. You deal directly with us the owners, no realty whose reservationists have most likely never even seen the home.

We provide you with premier housekeeping complete with conceirge services.

Our home is well appointed. We use our home and have equipped with what families need to be able to cook, relax and have fun.

What makes this house unique

Virginia Dare with ocean views, sounds and smells from both our decks is like ocean front without the cost. A less than 2 minute leisurely walk puts you on the beach. Summed up by a guest's comment, they loved that they never had to leave for entertainment.

The addtion of permanently installed wooden gates on our outside decks as well as the stairwell on the upper level Great Room has proven to be very be very handy for corraling little ones and dogs. Reversed living provides fabulous views. But adds the challenge of keeping our little ones safe. Our interior gate eliiminates that worry.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Pinos:

We had a great time at Cape Hatteras this week and your house was perfect. We have attached some photos of our kids Erin and Alex and dog Maizey having fun at your house. We will be back next June.

Fun Fall Long Weekend with Friends

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to the OBX and nothing about the trip disappointed! The location of the home is great-- literally a one minute walk to the beach. The house was clean, comfortable, and spacious. Sherry was great to work with. Really happy we chose this house at this location.

Love, Love, Love Virginia Dare

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Virginia Dare for four years and couldn't love it more. The house is beautifully equipped with everything you could need and oh so comfortable. The views of the ocean and pool are wonderful and the access to the beach is just steps away. Included is a linen service that makes it so easy to just pack up your bathing suit and flip flops and you're on your way to a great vacation. The owner has always gone above and beyond in answering questions and the included concierge service, Shore Details is so helpful. When our family arrives we just all say "Ahhhhhhh....." and relax.
