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.
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
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.
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.
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.

Cheryl is a great owner and I enjoyed doing business with her. She was professional and responsive.
The house is very nice, second row, and updated nicely. We took a group of men fishing for the weekend and it slept 8 very easily. In fact there were extra beds. The rooms are comfortable and the living area is great for a group.
The actual house was great, but it was dirty when we got there. There was sand, dead bugs, and trash every where. And one of the chairs in the sitting area had a huge oil stain on it.
We called, and someone came to clean it, but she couldn't do a great job, because she was going to a wedding, so we had to finish cleaning it.
When we checked out we were charged for the oil stain, and a couple other things we didn't do to the house. The owner kept saying no one was in the house the week before, but obviously there was, and we had to pay for their fun.
Loved our stay here- location is ideal (walking distance to grocery store, restaurants, and Avon pier). House was great- we had three young kids and the layout worked well for us. Heated pool was lovely and the owners were easy to work with!
We had a great time at Virginia Dare. The location can't be beat. You get ocean views and super easy access to the beach without paying oceanfront prices. We were comfortable in the home and the Pino's were very accommadating. My favorite spot was the pool. When you're there you are saying "this is the life". Would not hesitate to return for another stay.
The facilities were great. There were 5 in our party, but this house can easily accommodate a much larger number without crowding or skimping on the amenities. The house was spacious and very well equipped The kitchen utensils and electric appliances offered were a notch above from previous stays at other rentals.. The rental was well situated in a more isolated setting than other townships in the obx but close to food shopping, and the beach. Best of all the owners bent over backward in helping us arrange the vacation and very accommodative in allowing an extended stay due to my mistake in dates of departure. I recommend this rental without any reservations and would come here again if I make it back to the obx
This house is crazy wicked. Joe and Sherry have put every possible amenity in it you can think of. The layout of the house is great and gives every one some space but also makes it easy to come together out on the decks. It is just a short walk to the beach and it feels secluded but it is close to restaurants, shopping and attractions as well. Sherry and Joe were great to work with. You can't go wrong with this house or these people.
