Avon House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom, 4 bath, Oceanside, Avon - Cape Hatteras Island, Perfect Vacation Spot

See Shores 'S' Cape is the perfect cottage for your beach vacation to the Outer Banks at Cape Hatteras. Located one lot from the ocean (considered semi-oceanfront) in Avon! Just steps from the beach. Large, private beach house location.

The first level features 3 bedrooms (1QUEEN master suite, 1QUEEN bedroom, 4TWIN in 2BunksSets). The second level opens into a fully-equipped kitchen with breakfast bar, dining area and living room with cathedral ceilings. Next to the screened in porch is a deck for your morning coffee with great ocean views. “S” Cape to the loft queen master suite (1Queen) with bath and two-person Jacuzzi. View gorgeous sunrises and sunsets from a large sundeck. With 4 bedrooms and 4 full baths, (important - think about it!), your 10 family members will be more than comfortable in this well-furnished beach house. Wireless internet, of course. The ground level outdoor shower, fish cleaning table and charcoal grill are a plus with a lot of privacy and plenty of parking. LINENS included!

See Shores is on the new bike path, near the Canadian Hole windsurfing and kiteboarding hub, close to the ocean and the sound side, and the grocery store!! - at MP57. Great location in Avon, Hatteras Island, NC.

If you haven't experienced a summer family vacation at the beach, you're missing one of the best times ever. Spring and Summer can't be beat! And September and October are seasonally quiet, the water is still warm and the sea grass turns golden tan. Fishing is world famous!

Cape Hatteras Lighthouse is 5 miles away and it’s waiting for you to see the view from the top! Nearby Bodie Island Light open to climbing too. And in your lighthouse search, Ocracoke light is just a short free ferry ride away where you can become pirates for a day ! There’s fishing, kite-surfing, kite flying, and best of all, you can experience the best beach days!! Hatteras Island has been on Dr. Beach’s Top 10 List year after year! Photographers will be amazed by the beauty of the sunrise and sunset scenes!

Your 'S' Cape to the beach will be a dream vacation! The only one missing is you!

House Rental During A Tropical Storm

  • 4 of 5

Considering the circumstances we went through with weather from Tropical Storm Hermine this past weekend, our stay was comfortable and cozy enough. The house stood through the 40-60 mph winds, and the surge of water from the inlet side only went across the main highway right up to the driveway, but not into it.

The house feels like it was probably built and not remodeled since the 80s, but was still comfortable and with a homey feeling. The 'This End Up'-style furniture I'm sure helped my mother feel comfortable, as she has it all in her home too. The owner, Bobbi M., was VERY responsive to our minor issues and did everything she could to make the stay more enjoyable.

A few minor notes:

- The house has WiFi, but don't expect to have more than 'dial-up' speeds (especially if everyone has their cell phones linked to it).

- The larger room downstairs sounded like we were sleeping on a trash bag all night. The mattress was covered with some kind of plastic. The sheets provided almost felt as old as the house, too, very thin.

- There were a few appliance quirks in the kitchen, but there was plenty of utensils, pots, pans, plates, glasses etc. for the 10 of us. The dishwasher fluid latch was broken on the dishwasher. The left side of the toaster didn't work. Sometimes when running the microwave, the coffee maker, and fridge at the same time, the fuse would short and need to be reset. Also, I wish we had seen the note earlier that there was an extra leaf to the dining room table were we could extend it to be larger, but it was a nice option to sit at outdoor patio, too

- The bedroom on the top floor is the loudest & most scary during the storm. There was a slight ant issue in the bathroom on that floor, w/ some dead bugs also having fallen in the tub (probably because of the storm shaking). The toilet on that floor also needs to be replaced, as the flapper and inner workings aren't really working well. That bedroom has the least privacy too, as you can see into it slightly from the living room below, but it does have a nice balcony.

Overall, this house definitely met our needs. Come in w/ moderate expectations and you won't be let down. It's a beach house & worth the price you pay. You can see the beach out the living room window, although it's not beach front- it's close. The tide was very high on the beach while we were there (post-storm). It went all the way up and beyond the new sand fence that was installed- which was right at the dunes.

Owner's Response: Our maintenance team (Shore Details) is very responsive and handled your maintenance concerns quickly. Most homes are built on stilts for flood safety, and you can attest that storms do make a difference on the island -- you now have a story to share! Thank you for being our guest.

August 2016 in Avon

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice time with beautiful weather as well as the immiment sea turtle egg hatching. House was comfortable. Outdoor shower was great. Access to the beach was a little steep and hot (sand) at times but overall beautiful home. Plenty of cooking utencils for family meals. A/C worked just fine. Kids were not happy with the wifi bandwith but that was okay since they needed to be enjoying the outdoors. Very nice place to stay. Thanks!

Owner's Response: Turtle nesting is so fascinating. We once saw the tracks in the sand to a nest when a female laid her eggs and would love to see the hatchlings some day. That's the beauty of Hatteras Island. The beaches are wide open and great for a laid-back vacation. (The internet speeds will catch up with the rest of the world some day !!) Thanks again for your reservation.

very nice home- fit our family's needs perfectly

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house as an extended family with a couple w 5 kids, a set of grandparents, and a bachelor uncle. House was very clean and comfortable. There is a really nice 3rd floor bedroom which had the lovely deck in the photo and it was just right for the bachelor uncle (to escape to). The table was big enough for all of us. The grandparents could have a master suite with their own bathroom. It was easy to walk to the beach over the dunes for everyone but the grandparent with bad arthritis. (There are a lot of stairs-- he did have to go up to the first floor via outdoor stairs, so would note that if you have a person in your party with mobility issues. He took his time.) It was near shops and we could run or bike (bike rental not too far away) to stores as the main road had wide sidewalks. We made a short trip to the National Park at the Lighthouse and this house is convenient to swimming and fishing and to Pamlico Sound as well as the beach.

My family would come back to this property again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your insight into beach vacationing! Newer beach houses are on stilts for flood insurance requirements! and, To optimize the ocean views, the "reverse floor plan" means bedrooms on the first floor and the main gathering area on the next level up. We appreciate your ideas and work closely with our concierge and maintenance company to improving your stay. Thanks again.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

Great stay in a fine location. Will be back again! One thing to be aware of is the spiral staircase to the loft bedroom is a bit narrow but worth the climb once you get there! Plenty of bedroom space downstairs if the climb is not something you want to do.

We love the OBX and come every year! We had another great year with fires out on the beach every night and the kids loved the fishing (every cast produced something). The house had all of the necessities and was perfectly stocked. Plenty of great pots and pans. The beds were a little less than perfect, very springy. But they were still good enough. The freezer door pops open at every close of the frig, so just be aware. The trash comes at 1am sharp. We almost missed it once, as we were still out on the beach fishing. We had a great vacation and found the house to be very tidy. The loft bathroom doesn't have a shower and there is a fairly narrow cork screw ladder to get to the top. The acoustics are remarkable up there, as hearing wispers from the kitchen happens with ease. My suggestion would be to put the early risers up there if you're with a larger group.

Our visit, we had quite the run in with mosquitos. They were there to take over really! And we were invading their place. I've never seen them so bad. We coped by double spraying with bug spray, waiting and then walking out. When we loaded the car we got a yard fogger from Ace and that helped quite a lot. We did find quite a few spiders in the house. (A few in each room) It might be time for pest control but I'm unaware of the owners spray cycle and maybe they sprayed at the beginning of the season and will do so again in the fall. I do recommend this house, we had no issues other than a couple of clogged toilets and maintenance came within 20 mins of contact. The location and ease of shopping (grocery store, restaurants, specialty, rental) and sparse beaches made this trip exactly what we were looking for. Thanks for sharing your home!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your insight into the beach and all of its wonders. Beach fires under the stars is a perfect way to spend an evening. If it rains for a few days in a row, the mosquito's do multiply in the warm weather. Dare County sprays a day after the rain stops for one or two nights in a row. We are under a pest control contract as you noted, and a quick call to our maintenance group would respond to this or any concern! We think the uncrowded beaches is one of the best kept secrets of the Outer Banks/Avon/Hatteras Island. Thanks again!

Best time ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family vacation and chose this wonderful beach house. There were 10 of us which included 3 couples and 4 children. The bunk room was perfect for the kids. We put them in separate rooms to fall asleep and then put them in the bunks. The beach was wide and beautiful and delightfully uncrowded. It is far enough south so that nothing seems crowded. The only grocery store for many miles is only 1/2 mile north....Perfect! The children loved the ocean and making sand castles and sea animals. We brought all our beach stuff down in the morning and set up the sunshade and kept it up all day. The sun shined everyday and the water was warm. When our day was done we took advantage of the outside shower. We washed all the sand off the kids and the adults out there. No need for tubs after that! The house had everything we needed and we could feed all 10 of us at once. We ate out, got take out and we cooked out on the grill. There were so many options available. We went to the Orange Blossom cafe two mornings and bought Apple Uglies (fritters) and donuts so fresh they were still warm. We saw 3 lighthouses, Bodie Island, Hatteras and spent a day on Ocracoke Island and saw that lighthouse too. We watched the sunrise in the morning and went to Canadian Hole (sound side) to watch the sunset. On one of the days from the top deck we watched the sunrise, the full moon rise, the sunset AND the Bethlehem star. We thought about sleeping out there because it was so nice. We were busy but relaxed. We will be back!

Owner's Response: Thanks for highlighting the amenities of our beach cottage. Seeing a moon rise over the ocean is amazing and one of my favorite activities. Great memories begin at the beach.
