Updated: Dec 20, 2014
6 Bedroom, 5.5 Baths, Sleeps 18, Elevator, Priv. Pool, Game & Media Rooms

Pre-Christmas Special - December 20 - 24 (5 nights/6 days) for only $999 + tax. Perfect beach getaway. Add the hot tub for only $100.

Beautiful OCEAN and SOUND VIEW, quality home built in 2007 with 6 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, private pool, 7-person hot tub, theater room, elevator and WiFi. Captivating SUNRISES AND SUNSETS from the expansive decks. Close enough to the ocean to HEAR THE WAVES crashing on the beach. A bright and cheerful atmosphere with plenty of room for family and friends. Only 500 average walking steps for your feet to be in the sand, on the beach, ready to soak up the sun. (It is a literal 0.24 mi. from the property to the beach.) It's less than a 2 minute drive to the grocery store (Food Lion), restaurants, attractions and more. Less than a 1-minute drive from the property is a 4WD beach access with parking. This has been fantastic for our senior, physically challenged and young guests, as a great drop-off location to the beach. Avon even has its own WINGS Souvenir Shop. No need to leave the island, and centrally located enough to enjoy what the northern islands (Nags Head, Kitty Hawk) have to offer, or to head south to see the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, and catch the FERRY to explore OKRACOKE Island!

About the Owner

My husband (Dan) and I (Cyndi) both grew up in the country, north of Pittsburgh, PA, where we still reside. We've been married now for 7 years. Our 'slogan' is Dancyn through life (using both of our names), thus the reason for the name Dancyn' By the Sea. Together, we have 8 children. And no, that is not a typo. Our family is expanding, bringing us great joy. Dan has been a bricklayer now for nearly 20 years, while I am currently a home-maker and home-schooling mom. We love what we do. We love to travel.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The house was absolutely gorgeous! It was the nicest home we have ever stayed in at the Outer Banks. The rooms were decorated and put together with very warm and inviting colors.



We loved that you had the grocery store, gas station, fresh seafood market, and a Wings beach store (where you get your souvenirs) all within 2 minutes of the house. VERY EXCITING! My family travels 10 hours to get to the Outer Banks, so when we get there we want to be BEACH BUMS. So it was very convenient that all these places were very close.



Can't wait to go back!!!

Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5
I absolutely loved my vacation. The house was beautiful inside and out. My favorite aspect is that there is a panoramic view of the ocean and sound on the top floor of the house. It was very nicely decorated and very spacious. I loved the look of the kitchen and it was very well stocked. It had many pieces of equipment that you wouldn't expect a vacation place to have (ex. toaster oven and crockpot). The media room had a large screen for viewing videos and several chairs that reclined. I loved the hot tub and the pool. It was a short walk to the beach. The bedrooms were all nicely decorated and all but one bedroom had its own bathroom. The elevator came in handy for taking groceries or other necessities to the top floor. I highly recommend Dancyn by the Sea to anyone looking for a beautiful relaxing vacation.

Well, where to start? Guess I should start by saying the house was absolutely gorgeous! Everything was just too good to be true! But really, specifically, we had everything we needed right here in this house! Very conveniently located and the views of morning sunrise and sunsets were fabulous. Close enough to the beach to walk to and we did! But we also drove on the beach for fishing and it was literally a minute to the ramp! The house was spotlessly clean and the beds were sooo comfortable. I would come back to this house in a heart beat. Will do that on future vacations to this area! Oh,and one last thing...the owners were very accommodating. Always very responsive to any questions and even followed up with us during our stay. Very customer friendly! Just loved it!!

Great Family Week in Avon

  • 5 of 5
After spending the past 3 years in a rental through one of the rental companies, we searched for a large house for rent by owner and located this unit. The transaction was handled expertly by the owner as well as VRBO.

After we arrived we were pleased with the condition of the unit as well as the job done by the cleaning crew.

Our family of 11 spent a great week. It is 1/4 mile from the house to route 12 where there is a path the ocean. Another option is drive to a beach access just another 100 yards south and walk right onto the beach. We chose a third option of getting a beach driving permit ($50 for the week) and drove a 4 wheel drive pickup right down to the shoreline. There is a gas station right there that provides free air to pump up the tires after being on the beach.

Have no fear dealing with either VRBO or this owner.

Owner's Response: For others with 4WD vehicles, plan to take advantage of the beach access that is less than a one minute drive from the house! Also, be sure to head north to the 4WD ONLY beaches of Corolla to see the 'famous' wild ponies! Another fantastic area to check out that is only for 4WD is the wide beaches of Buxton, the next village just south of Avon. You can find a fantastic selection of seashells including conch! Worth the trip. We've found whole conch (no cracks) and even coral right in Avon.

Review of week at the VACATION HOME.

  • 5 of 5
House was great as were the views. The pool and hot tub were great for the family. We did have problems with main TV on the 3rd floor great room. We changed batteries in the remote but it did not fix the problem. The problem was that you could not change channels without playing with the remote; removing batteries slapping remote once in while helped to. I believe the remote was just worn out. As far as other TVs and remotes, we had to replace batteries in several as they were worn out or non existent upon arrival. Might be a good idea to change batteries in remotes once or twice a year and during weekly change-out validate the electronics work properly.

Other than that the week was great, the house was great and the family had a really good time. A very relaxing week and a great time to bond with children and grandchildren. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Good to know - In the case of any needed repair, no matter how big or small, guests only need to contact our maintenance company. This even includes the smallest of things - batteries, light bulbs, etc. For ease in getting in touch with them, their contact information is prominently displayed in the guest book and elevator. Extra remote controls are left for the maintenance team to put out as guests request the need. :-)

Wonderful family home

  • 5 of 5
Our family met from Virginia, NC, and SC - Parents, grown children, grandchildren at this beautiful home. It was so comfortable for all of us. The bedrooms were perfect and the "teenage" boys loved the media room. But the best was the beach - just beautiful!

Owner's Response: We love that Dancyn' is spacious enough to bring extended families together. Between what the natural beaches and the house has to offer, it's a perfect place to vacation.

Location

From the Owner

One of the most unique benefits of this area is the fact that you can literally walk from the sound to the ocean in less than 10 minutes, giving anyone the ability to see the sunrise ON WATER in the morning, then catch the sunset ON WATER that same evening, giving the opportunity to see the uniqueness and beauty of the Outer Banks. Having shopping (especially a major grocery store) within a two minute drive makes it perfect. Bike and kayak rentals are in the same plaza, adding amenities to the experience. Avon, having its own fishing pier is perfect for those who love to fish, and is less than 5 minutes up the road. Those who have 4WD will love being able to enter the beach within a 1 minute drive from the property. So many conveniences, AND offers serene nothingness! Who could ask for more?

Activity and Interests

Nearest Ferry : at 16.09 Miles Nearest Restaurant : at 0.5 Miles Car: necessary

We've been coming to the Outer Banks for at least 35 years now. I cannot imagine ever getting tired of it. Even just being here and only enjoying the beaches, taking in the sun, listening to the ocean waves is enough, in and of itself. And to think that it's free entertainment.

The Outer Banks has so much to offer. Avon, North Carolina is a very popular Outer Banks vacation destination. All of the neighboring villages on Hatteras Island are relatively close to each other which means that the island can offer many different businesses centered around tourism like restaurants, markets, tackle shops, hardware stores, beach supply stores, and much more.

Eat to your hearts content at any of the many, many restaurants all along the Outer Banks. There are at least 3 SEAFOOD BUFFETS for those wanting a great variety.

For the CRAB LOVER, catch your own, purchase them from any of the local vendors where you can even get them steamed and ready to eat, or check out the local restaurants.

For history buffs, and others, be sure to head up to Kitty Hawk to catch THE FIRST WRIGHT BROTHER'S MEMORIAL and the KITTY HAWK DUNES where you can even take hang-gliding lessons. As much as I disliked history, seeing this, in person, really brought it to life, and made it interesting.

For those looking for more ADVENTURE, try kite boarding, para sailing, kayaking, biking, hiking, and more. Very reasonably priced plane rides offer an opportunity to see the whole Outer Banks from the bird's eye view. This is one you don't want to miss.

Be sure to check out the outdoor live production of THE LOST COLONY. It's just one of those things you have to do at least once while visiting the Outer Banks.

The ELIZABETHAN GARDENS is another destination you won't want to miss.

Another neat shop to visit is THE CHRISTMAS SHOP in Manteo. It's become one of our annual visits.

For a unique experience, head to the quaint village of OKRACOKE (island) by FREE FERRY RIDE. Enjoy the scenery and wildlife, sometimes even dolphins as they follow along the ferry.

FISHING, FISHING, AND MORE FISHING!

Although there are always plenty of things to see and do in Avon, the traditional main attraction remains the surf fishing on our local beaches. Avon even has its own FISHING PIER, less than a 5 minute drive from Dancyn' By the Sea! Anglers can try for many different species throughout the year including red drum, striped bass (that's rockfish to the locals), bluefish, speckled trout, flounder, spanish mackerel, whiting (sea mullet), spot, croaker, black drum, various sharks and pompano just to name a few. It's hard to beat a relaxing day in the sun waiting for your rod to bend and then having the pleasure of eating fresh fish for dinner that you just caught earlier that day. Nearby Hatteras Inlet also offers a 'world class' destination for offshore trolling to catch tuna, marlin, wahoo and mahi (dolphin/dorado).

GOLF!

All throughout the Outer Banks, you'll find MINIATURE GOLF. A top vacation destination for beach goers, the Outer Banks also features some of the best year-round golfing in the eastern United States. Experienced and novice players will find these NINE CHAMPIANSHIP COURSES challenging and aesthically stunning. If you're planning a trip to the Outer Banks in the near future bring your clubs for a day of golfing you won't soon forget.

Amenities

From the Owner

We chose this particular home because this was the one that WOW(ed) us with its unique benefits. We love the angles throughout along with the beautiful woodwork. It has an incredibly open and airy feel, providing such a relaxing atmosphere. Being able to see miles of both the ocean and sound from the same deck is a huge a bonus. We can easily hear the ocean waves, a feature that you don't get everywhere on the Outer Banks. We are less than a 5 minute walk to the beach. That was a priority to us, since that's the number one reason we come here. We also knew this place was plenty big enough for all of us, our siblings and their families, easily able to house our 4 families in one location. We feel confident that you, as our guests, will feel the same way. Our hope is that you will create special memories here during your stay, while you find rest and relaxation.
