A Family Friendly Sound Front Home With A Sandy Bottom Launch For Water Sports.
About Dawn Plunkett
This is our personal home and retreat. The house was built to lend itself to our hobbies and lifestyle. We are family oriented, child & adult friendly and love the water. There are beautiful water views from every room in the house. We are an adventurous family and found this property on one of our Kite Boarding/family trips to the OBX. My husband literally found the lot from the water for it's sandy beach launch. The house is built with a lawn area at the beginning of our pier for easy set up and take down of all water and wind gear. This area is set up with a hose, fish cleaning station and an hot/cold water outdoor shower. The front yard is well suited for children to play, with a half basketball court, long driveway with a private culde-sac, sand box and beautiful old oak trees for shaded play areas. There are beautiful swings located at the sound side ground level, hot tub and eating area on the sound side main deck, large teak bench on the driveway side (for the person chilling out while watching the children) and large teak barstools on the sound side upper deck (located right outside of the "sunset bar" ping pong room). The main Sound side hot tub is a must at sunset no matter what time of year you are there!
Dawn Plunkett purchased this House in 2010
Why Dawn Plunkett chose Salvo
With wall to wall wood floors, water views, an open floor layout, gorgeous teak island and granite counter top kitchen, this house feels peaceful from the moment you walk in. There are 3 bedrooms; the master with a California king, the guest bedroom with a queen and the "bunk" room with 2 pyramid bunk beds (full size bottom & twin tops). The house is located on a private Culde-sac with only one other home, but is part of the South Beach development (across hwy 12) with full private beach access. It is a 5 minute walk but there are also parking spots and a boardwalk over the dunes to the beach. Ride your bike over in the morning to watch the sunrise and check on the surf. The Park service offers permits for 4WD beach access and bonfires. A quarter mile from the home is the Salvo day use area with 2 beaches and a great place for children to ride bikes or runners to complete an additional loop. For water sports our sandy bottom launch allows for great family fun and easy access to premier flat shallow water.

Wonderful home in a great location
The home is well set up for a family, up-to-date, with lots of activities. It is extremely well located on the edge of Cape Hatteras National Seashore with easy access to wide-open beaches on the ocean side, and shallow waters on the bay side for crabbing, kayaking and lots of other water sports.
Beautiful home! Beautiful sunsets! We enjoyed our stay!
My family rented this home in August for our vacation. It was perfect in every way. It was beautiful, very clean and felt more like a home than like a “rental”. It feels like the owners have literally rented out their family home. They have put much care and thought into home. You will know what I mean if you decide to rent this house. The best part about the house are the views of the sunset from the home. It was amazing! Some people may really enjoy being right on the sound. We did kayak on the sound, but our children were a little young for all the water activities that the sound offers. It’s a little bit of a drive to the beach (a few minutes). We didn’t have trouble finding parking.
We enjoyed the hot tub on the back deck and playing pool. The owner, Dawn, was also very sweet to answer all the questions that I had prior to our visit. She also was very quick to respond and fix the issues that we had once we arrived. Thank you for the wonderful visit!
Great for kiting
Great location and house. Upstairs toilet was broken when we arrived, but the owner was easy to reach by phone and very responsive.
Wonderful Home and Host!
We loved this home...it was great for our “active” crew of littles. There was plenty of space inside for them to enjoy and not be cramped. And they loved spending time outside whether in the front or down on the pier. They loved the kayaks when the wind permitted their use. Windy times called for hot tub fun! The beach is about a 7-8 minute walk away...easy for the kids!
Dawn, you are an extremely kind person, your genuineness is evident in your replies and when we talked. I wish you and your family all the best, in health and happiness. :) Thank you for your promptness in addressing the minor “kinks” that encountered and helping with resolution of them! That was very much appreciated!
We would love to come here again! ❤️
Outer Banks Getaway
We very much enjoyed staying in this beautifully appointed and quiet Outer Banks home! We especially loved the sound side views and privacy.
