vacation rental description

Our classic, contemporary Outer Banks home is located on Pamlico Sound on the edge of the protected lands of the Salt Marsh. Our vacation home is designed to be relaxed and casual, and surround you with elegance and beauty - the hardwood, marble and tile floors, gourmet kitchen, exquisite bathrooms, leather furniture, entertainment features of HDTV's, sound system, games, books will please everyone in your group. The generous game room provides lots of fun - with ping pong, foosball, darts, stereo, HCTV, DVD with wifi and USB port, a.c./heat. Our home is located at the end of the road in a quiet residential neighborhood, the landscaped grass lot backs up to a beautiful and serene protected southernly lands of Hatteras Island. The lot offers 8 feet of bulkhead and wide steps into Pamlico Sound for perfect water entry for world-class windsurfing and kiteboarding and also includes a large private dock on the canal. We provide you with two Kayaks if you want to paddle the sound; 3 bikes are provided for cruising around quiet and quaint Avon village, which is now fully accessible by bike. 2013 brought bike paths to Avon, well placed off the road, up and down the island for safe, easy non-driving access north and south, to the beaches and stores.

The upper and lower decks offers stunning views of Pamlico Sound and its spectacular sunsets, as well as the marsh filled with wildlife and ever-changing light. See the pictures taken from our deck in the photo gallery. The night sky is awesome--on clear nights you cannot count the stars. In the late spring, you cannot count the fireflies. The large main deck has a secluded, shaded porch swing, picnic table, grill and plenty of chairs. The upper deck offers plenty of seating perfect for morning coffee accompanied by the morning birds or evening views of the most spectacular sunset on the east coast. On either deck, you will often hear the rumble of the ocean from one side and the soft lapping waves of the sound from the other side--and a chorus of chirping, singing birds all around. Fall and Spring are just as good as summer at our special spot on Hatteras.

The huge yard (3/4 acre) is nicely landscaped and has lots of grass for kids to play (croquet set and lawn games provided). Petit and small, well-behaved dogs are welcomed and can play below the house in a safe, shady, fenced area. The fenced area is connected to the upper deck so you can just let your dog out, no need to take them out on leash. Just keep them quiet, this is a residential area with year round dog loving neighbors.

The floor plan of the house is open, but the master bedroom (queen bed) and beautiful bath are separated from the two other bedrooms (1 with queen bed, 1 with pyramid bunkbed, twin over double) and bath. The kitchen offers a Jennaire Gas range, ultra quiet HE dishwasher new in 2013, side by side refrigerator with filtered water and ice in door, microwave/toaster (high end LG line), good coffee maker, grinder and french press, cuisinart blender and food processor, rice steamer, wok, toaster oven, popcorn maker, and lots of other excellent cooking conveniences. You'll find a wide array of high end cookware, dishes, barware and stemware. The tile work in the bathrooms is truly stunning; both baths have lovely stone tile work , rain shower heads, the master bath includes a large soaking tub. In the shower, you'll find hand laid river stones under your feet. But to wash up after a day at the beach or in the sound, you'll enjoy a full shower in our large private outdoor shower with hot and cold water, the dressing area is perfect, clean and comfortable. A full laundry room conveniently located inside and just off the foyer lets you take care of your clothes, cleaning up is easy. No running up and down stairs to do the laundry! The quiet, high efficiency washer and dryer are new in summer '13.

You likely know about Hatteras Island, which is why you're considering a rental here. If you've been here before, you know how wonderful it is! If you haven't been here yet, you've got to come see it to believe it. Hatteras is unlike any other east coast beaches. Most of the island is protected national seashore, with some of the most beautiful beaches and best surf fishing anywhere. If that weren't enough, Pamlico Sound is known as the best place for windsurfing or kiteboarding on the East Coast. It's a great place to learn those sports, or perfect your technique, with its shallow water and reliable breezes--and there are many great instructors on the island, including our neighbor Jay. If you prefer more sedate pursuits, a pleasant 10 minute drive will bring you to Hatteras Lighthouse, the tallest and by most accounts the most beautiful lighthouse in the US. The view from the top of the lighthouse is superb! The island is also home to many interesting shops, markets, restaurants, and other attractions.

We have designed the house to maximize everyone's enjoyment and relaxation. The game room, big protected yard, and ‘end of the road’ location lets the adults relax while the kids romp and play. A swimming pool and tennis are available only a short bike or drive away. If you need a good work out, a yoga class or help relaxing (which is unlikely, in this setting!), The Koru Spa is nearby, only a short bike ride away. Come enjoy this beautiful, natural spot, nestled between Pamlico Sound and the marsh, canals and creeks of Avon Village, with the famous beaches of Hatteras island nearby. It’s a truly unique spot, combining all the best of the Outer Banks.

We manage our property ourselves and our local property manager lives in Avon Village and works closely with us to make sure you have the ultimate Hatteras Island vacation experience. She is there to help you, we want to make your vacation truly amazing! We take pride in our home and prepare carefully for your arrival. If you have concerns about the quality of house cleaning and attention to detail, please read our stellar reviews. Our past renters will tell you about it better than we can.

traveler reviews for this avon house rental

Sunsets made the day

Review submitted: September 26, 2013   Date of arrival: September 14, 2013

I just spent a week at "Too Much Fun" and had a wonderful time. It was relaxing and the evening sunsets on the rooftop deck with a glass of wine were the highlight. We are still talking about them! We loved buying fresh seafood from Risky Business and cooking in the top-of-the-line kitchen. The beds were sooooo comfortable and for the first time, I took more indoor showers than outdoor showers because of the spa-like qualities. I had time by myself, time with my parents and time with friends. All of it was amazing and my dog Bo thought he was in heaven. (I actually think he was)! Thank you for sharing such a wonderful home in lovely Avon.

Owners response: Hi DS,

Thanks for the great review! We love our house and love hearing such great things about it. We hope you come back year after year, you were great!

Heaven on earth

Review submitted: August 6, 2013   Date of arrival: March 9, 2013

This property is the perfect launch point to enjoy all the activities in the Outer Banks. The house is so beautiful, clean and fully stocked with the essentials. There is a book full of information and instructions. My husband and I were very comfortable in the master bedroom. It was so luxurious taking a bath in the large tub. My two kids enjoyed having their own rooms at the other end of the house. They were able to plug in their video game system and feel right at home! Every day they would go downstairs to the game room and play ping pong and foosball. They also enjoyed the board games there at the house. We mostly cooked our own meals and enjoyed the Netflix access on the large screen tv. The most enjoyable part of each day was sunset time on the upper deck. The beautiful view of the Sound is breathtaking. You can still hear the crashing sound of the Atlantic from the other side of the island. After dinner, we would again enjoy returning to the deck for star gazing. There is also nothing like spending a morning outside, at the picnic table, with your coffee or cocoa and hearing the ocean. We were inspired to go to the beach more than once and fly kites. We've already recommended Too Much Fun to others and will continue to do so!

Amazing Retreat

Review submitted: July 30, 2013   Date of arrival: July 20, 2013

My family and I just returned from an amazing weeklong stay at “Too Much Fun”. The property has stunning views of the Pamlico Sound, with water access just a short walk away. We took in many beautiful sunsets from the upper deck of the house, as well as from the Sound shore. As described in the VRBO listing, the property is well appointed with ALL of the comforts of home, including a separate master suite, spa like bathrooms, a “cooks” kitchen, and well-stocked activity and laundry rooms. There are water views from nearly every window in the house! We really appreciated the care the owners have taken to ensure everything needed is available at the property. Not having to pack bikes, beach chairs and towels, coolers, kayaks, etc., made for a hassle free vacation. Access to the oceanside beach is just a short drive away. We went bike riding, crabbing, and bird watching. (The homes bird feeders attract a wonderful symphony of birds that adorn the property). We also went kite flying, shelling, and took the ferry to Ocracoke Island where we visited the Ocracoke lighthouse, had lunch on the water, and enjoyed the pristine beaches. The homeowner and property manager are incredibly warm, and made us feel at home. We can’t wait for our next visit! Thank you Eliza!
