About L.A. Brickner

We live in in the Baltimore area and have enjoyed vacationing in the Outer Banks since we were children. We have close family friends who own a home in Salvo so we started bringing our children when they were babies.

L.A. Brickner purchased this house in 2012

Why L.A. Brickner chose Cape Hatteras

We enjoy the quietude and stunning nature of Hatteras Island. We were able to purchase the nearly-new home and furnish it to our exacting standards to be our Hatteras retreat that we will share with select renters.

What makes this house unique

Although we love the ocean, the sound front properties provide the ability to create a nightly 'sunset festival'. We love to play music and marvel at the kite boarders and windsurfers. We also appreciate that each bedroom has a private bath, a feature that is appreciated when multiple families share a home. As we started furnishing the home with brightly-colored 'beachy' decor, the prevailing color was aqua -- hence the house name Aquaholic.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Some wonderful things we did: Wild horse tour, Wright plan tour, dove with sharks, discovered beaches, shops, restaurants, ice cream ships. Details that mattered: all being together, playing games, laughing. Hope we can come back next year. It was wonderful. (posted from Guest Book)

Luxurious Soundfront 'Aquaholic'
average rating of 5.0 based on 20 reviews

Spectacular views from all levels of the most amazing sunsets!!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best VRBO experiences we've had. The house is beautiful with attention to detail everywhere! The owner is very responsive and has done a wonderful job with providing for everyone's (8-70 years) comfort. The views were breathtaking and if you are not dawn awakening people then I recommend staying on the sound side where we enjoyed spectacular sunsets and kite surfers every night!! We will be back to Salvo and Aquaholic ;)

Best Vacation Home !!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was a great fit for our group of 5 siblings and our families that vacation together 1 week each year. The large fridges and 2 dishwashers really came in handy. The pictures on line don't really give you a visual of how big and comfortable the top floor is for a large group eating and playing games together. It was truly the best house we've ever rented. It was clean and comfortable with great views from the decks. The theater room was awesome. We appreciated the laminated instructions to operate the technology and the binder that let us know where everything could be found in the kitchen etc.

"Best Week of His Life"

  • 5 of 5

My 82 year old dad told me this was the "Best week of his life" on the way home to Virginia. He watched every sunset as it melted in the ocean and swam in the pool in the early morning hours. It melted my heart because that is what we wanted, my sisters and I! My sisters and All three of my adult children came with my three grandchildren. We made wonderful memories in a home with a view that is like no other! The other amazing part is the owner LA! She cared about our stay and made everything perfect!

Perfectly Suited

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have picked a better place for our 4 family vacation. The house is very clean and we'll taken care of. WiFi was a little slow but we were just forced to enjoy our vacation just that much more. So much space that allowed enough room for us all together and for alone time as well. Well suited for families with kids. Linens provided were in great condition. A trip down to Frisco Beach is well worth it for surf that's a little calmer. Thanks so much for the great stay!

We have spent 13yrs in salvo area over the last 16yrs. Two years ago we stayed in home beside Aquaholics.

This was a great home with plenty of room.

We wish the bikes would have been there as mentioned. The owners were quick to return call for an issue that happened while we were at the home.

Loved eating at Real sports, Wind over Waves. We had one rain mourning and went to the aquarium. As always we had a day at Oakrakoke Island. The Pea Island gallery is a must. The Fishing Hole is great for bait(we were catching baby sand sharks) and just getting local gossip.

The Outer Banks can't be beat for just chillin with friends and family.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the Aquaholic. I am so sorry about the bikes. We offered them in previous seasons but found that we couldn't keep them maintained through the season -- flat tires, rusty chains, etc. Much more reliable and economical to just rent them from the local bike rental shop. I removed them from the listing, but only realized after your review that I had neglected to delete the reference to them under "other amenities". Thanks for bringing it to my attention. Hope to see you next season!

With our wide, sandy beaches and refreshing waters, it is easy to see why the Outer Banks is a popular vacation destination. The sound of ocean waves, the starry night sky, or the calm of the salt marshes -- you can experience it all. Shaped by the forces of water, wind, and storms these islands are ever changing. Whether you are walking on the beach, kayaking on the sound, or climbing the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse there is something for everyone to explore!
