About Jeff Lewis

This property is owned by the Lewis family from New Jersey. The Lewises have loved the Outer Banks for many years and enjoy hosting families from all over the world to their cottage.

Jeff Lewis purchased this cottage in 1997

Why Jeff Lewis chose Hatteras Island

The close access to the beach and the view from the upper deck sold us! It is truly a wonderful family retreat and also is great for fishermen, birdwatchers, surfers, kite surfers, and beach babies in the fall!

What makes this cottage unique

The unique benefit of this house is that it offers a family an opportunity to enjoy beach living at a reasonable cost. We also allow your beloved dogs if they are well behaved!

Sailfish in Avon is located a stone's throw from the beach access behind beautiful huge dunes. The pristine beach is uncrowded and invites you to sunbathe, surf, body board, surf fish, and look for shells to your heart content.

The only chain grocery store for the whole island is also located in Avon. Spa Koru in Avon features a workout gym, sauna, a beauty shop, massages, yoga and other classes and services to truly spoil yourself and yours!

Super location: Great ocean view/easy beach access

  • 5 of 5

Sailfish is in a wonderful location in Avon. It has great access (just minutes) to the beach which made it super easy to take our dog to the beach. It is a lovely, spacious, clean, and comfortable house. The upstairs has a kitchen, dining area, bathroom and bedroom as well as an open concept living area with sliding doors which lead out onto the deck for an amazing ocean view. The downstairs has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a laundry room. It is a fantastic place to stay if you are vacationing in the Outer Banks. Sailfish is a great value. It is also a short drive to the grocery store, restaurants, and the lighthouse station. Our experience was wonderful. Betty was available if we needed anything. Thanks so much for making our vacation so enjoyable.

Spacious, Nice views, Everything we Needed

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Sailfish immensely. This house is homey, spacious and pet friendly. Thanks to Betty for her help and patience when we made our reservation she really made it stress free. It is a small walk to the beach which my mother had a little trouble with but was fine for us and young kids. Bonus was the ice cream stand at the end of the road, also a short walk.

comfortable cottage

  • 4 of 5

It was a nice cottage; not fancy but very comfortable. Very clean. There is a long walk over the dunes to get to the beach; it's not as close as the pictures make it appear. But the view from the deck is good.

My family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for a long weekend & had an absolute blast ! The house is very nice! We felt like we were at home ! The 5 bedrooms held everyone perfectly! This was a great experience for my family and my son & my grandmas first time at the beach , they walk way was very nice! It was easier for my grandma (84y/o) to get to the beach.. I love that the beach wasn't crowded at all ! This was probably my favorite beach ! The ice cream shop across the Main Street was perfect ! We truly enjoyed our time there! The house was very clean & my family loved the "rocking chair" in the living room! Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your home! We've already started planning another family vacation!
