Overview

Property Details

Updated: Jul 24, 2016
6 Bd, 5.5 Baths, Elevator, Priv. Pool, Game/Media Rms, Hot Tub, Amazing Views!

Come dance by the sea where incredible OCEAN and SOUND VIEWS await. You’ll have plenty of room and plenty to do in this 3 level home with 6 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, private pool, 7-person hot tub, theater room, game room, elevator and Wi-Fi. Start and end each day with captivating SUNRISE & SUNSET VIEWS from the any of the expansive decks. Sooth yourself to sleep with the lull of the crashing waves. Dancyn’ By the Sea is beautifully decorated, providing a bright and cheery setting for your home away from home. It’s only 500 average walking steps for your feet to be on the sandy beach, ready to soak up the sun. (It is a literal 0.24 mi. from the property to the beach.) There’s no need to spend wasted hours traveling to and from the grocery store as the Food Lion is less than a 2 minute drive away. After all, that time is much better spent on the beach!! In the same plaza, you’ll find restaurants, and even a Dollar Tree for forgotten toiletries and such. Spend a day or 2 exploring the miles of beaches via your 4WD, for less than a 1-minute drive from the property is a 4WD beach access with parking. This has also been fantastic for our senior, physically challenged, and younger guests as a great drop-off location to the beach. With all that Avon has to offer, there is no need to leave the island. Being centrally located, guests can enjoy what the northern islands (Nags Head, Kitty Hawk) have to offer, AND head south to see the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, catch the FERRY to explore OKRACOKE Island, board a charter boat for some fantastic half or full day fishing excursions, and so much more! Dancyn’ has it all.

Towels and linens included with all reservations!

Dancyn’ by the Sea is perfect for WEDDING RECEPTIONS and FAMILY REUNIONS!

THIRD/TOP FLOOR: presents amazing VIEWS of both the ocean and sound. You can watch the sun rise and set from either inside, or outside on the expansive decks. You'll also find the spacious GREAT ROOM with large flat screen TV and DVD player. Cables ready for your video game systems. This level hosts a BREAKFAST BAR with seating for 3, and not 1, but 2 DINING AREAS, a woman's dream. Total dining seating capacity - 18. The very well equipped KITCHEN has plenty of counter space and ceramic floors. You will also find the GRAND MASTER KING bedroom (Shell We Dance)- beautifully and uniquely decorated, beautiful architecture, vaulted ceilings, and large arched windows for absolutely, breath-taking views of the ocean and sky. Wake up each morning to beautiful sunrises without ever leaving the room or step directly out onto the deck from your room.

MID LEVEL: offers 2 beautifully appointed KING MASTER bedrooms (private baths), a third bedroom with 2 PYRAMID beds (twins over fulls), and fourth bedroom with 2 TWINS (private bath). DECK access from every bedroom.

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!!!

awesome! 5 stars!

  • 5 of 5

Dancyn By the Sea was the best house we've ever stayed in! The layout was perfect and comfortable for our family of 8 adults and 4 kids, ages 3-9. Everyone had their own space and bathroom, which is a big plus. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were clean The elevator was a real plus!! The house was clean and well equipped. It was so nice to have the beds made and towels supplied . The location is great for several reasons. We never heard any traffic, which was nice in the early AM or late PM while we were asleep . We used the drive on beach access daily , which was only a mile away. Grocery stores were close by.

The owners contacted us several times to assure we had all we needed and things were going smoothly. We ate at the restaurant on Avon Pier one night and were very pleasantly surprised at the service and the food. We definitely recommend this house and hope to return next year! Thanks to the Sagath Family!

Perfect vacation for my family.

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at Dancin by the Sea was wonderful. The house is beautiful and the views were outstanding. It was a far walk to the ocean with the little ones, but worth it once we got there. The pool was the highlight for the young people. The house was well equipped for enjoyment and the kitchen had just about everything you would need for food prep for a large family.

Peaceful

Dancyndi by the sea was a peaceful experience! The rental was self- contained, did not have to leave but could walk down the street to the ocean! First time we ever saw sun go down on the water awesome! The amenities were all inclusive, if you wanted to cook in everything was there, if not plenty of eateries!The owners went out of their way to please! We would definitely come back again, loved it!

Full-service and FUN vacation house

  • 5 of 5

What a gratifying stay: easy walk to the beach, huge & wonderful great room, lots of bedrooms with good beds, a theater, a swimming pool, great decks, nice views, big modern kitchen, lots of parking, and wow, even an elevator. Everything was clean, clean, clean. One cool aspect is that you can see the Cape Hatteras lighthouse shining at night to the south as you stood on the kitchen balcony. Found lots of shells on the shore and exceptional eats at Bros Sandwich Shack and Oceana's Bistro in nearby Avon. It is a peaceful and pleasant place to stay with nice (and nonintrusive) owners. Should also mention that while this portion of the Outer Banks provides a bonafide getaway, we found a supermarket, gas station, and hardware store conveniently close by (Food Lion, BP, Ace). Highly recommend Dancyn' by the Sea and plan to come back next year.

Owner's Response: We also love how you don't ever have to leave Avon, that it has everything you could ever want or need, yet it truly is away from all of the crowds and over-activity that most beaches have.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

A standout house with amazing amenities. Great location; it's a more private area, and it has wide open beaches. Close to a BP and Food Lion (grocery store) as well as a few restaurants.

Amazing owners who are very communicative and genuine. Loved working with them!

Danced by the sea

  • 5 of 5

Our visit was for our wedding. The house is organized and beautiful.The frogs by the hot tub are awesome! The theater is the best room in the house!!!!!!! There was a problem when we arrived with the internet, but it was down on most of the island. The company got it up quickly, but with the beach so close, and town right there. It wasn't missed as much as we thought it would be. It was everything we dreamed of. We had to do a little cleaning when we arrived, but the everything was mostly clean. I would totally rent this place again, and have already recommended it to friends and family.

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 means less time driving and more time for vacationing. 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.
