We are staying here as I write this. Found it on TripAdvisor, and it has exceeded our expectations. Since there are only two previous reviews from 2014, I wanted folks to be aware of some improvements: There is now a cute little 3/4 size dishwasher and the fridge has an ice maker. Many furnishings and fixtures appear new or recent, including granite counters, a huge stainless steel kitchen sink, living room furniture and flooring. WiFi is pretty decent- about 25 Mbps downloads. There may be a washer & dryer room under the house- we haven't checked. The cottage is clean and fresh, even though it's pet friendly. Everything works, including the 42" flat screen TV. This is a two-story cottage on stilts, so you'll have 3 sets of stair to the living room & kitchen on the 2nd floor. It's more of a dune view than ocean view, but you can see a sliver of ocean from the 2nd floor deck- more if you're standing. It's a duplex, so there's always a chance you'll have noisy neighbors, but the other unit (TWO BY THE SEA-A 303) is vacant for our stay. Public access path to the beach is right next to the cottage. Everyone we interacted with at the Management Co., Dolphin Realty, was very friendly and helpful. This is our 3rd trip to the Outer Banks, and one of the nicest cottages we've rented!
We loved the location. We loved Avon and the view from the balcony. The size was perfect for us. It was clean. Loved the outdoor shower. It was definitely dated, but that kinda gave it charm. The main negative for us was the screen to the balcony was ripped very badly. We called the reality company immediately and they said they would send someone to fix it the next day. No one ever showed. I think this should have been fixed before anyone was allowed to check in. We also missed having a dishwasher and icemaker ,and the tv was very outdated , but if your coming for the location, its great.

This house was perfect for us. It has only the basics, which is all we needed. It was very clean. It is ocean front, but still a bit if a walk to the beach. Had a great time!
