About Jeff Lewis

Why Jeff Lewis chose Avon

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!

Sailfish exceeded my expectations! The property was very cozy, comfortable and clean.

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable, cozy and clean. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to make meals. We slept great in the beds and enjoying sitting on the deck each morning with coffee, listening to tbe beautiful birds sing and watching a beautiful view of the ocean. There are many nice resturaunts, taverns, coffee shops within walking distance and a great ice cream shop at the end of the road. Dont forget to visit Muffins and Scones which has a great selection of pastries and coffee in an artsy atmosphere. The beach was just a brief walk over a lovely sand dune and the water temperature was perfect for splashing in the waves. This,area is also very bike friendly and we rode our bikes to many places. Alot of care was put into making this property a perfect vacation home. We are already trying to plan a trip back next year😁?

Good space great light ocean view

  • 4 of 5

Good house. Not modern and little short of furniture but we were told to rent ELITE listings for bells and whistles. As advertised ocean view and everything worked which is unusual. Only glitch was previous renter had misplaced gun so big search for missing firearm to make sure house clear and none of our kids stumbled upon loaded weapons

A great location for a great price

  • 5 of 5

If you’re looking for a place with plenty of space to have a family get together this is the place for you. Not fancy but perfect for getting away from the hustle of the Kitty Hawk area and enjoying the beach.

Clean older home with a nice deck and plenty of room for our big family. Close beach access was nice

  • 4 of 5

The layout was perfect for our family of 10. Three married couples each with their own room, a boys and a girls room for the others worked well for us. Plenty of room for everyone to be together and create wonderful memories. The open kitchen, dining living room allowed for a lot of togetherness.

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. It is so convenient if you have lots of beach gear, toys, fishing poles, etc. The large deck facing the ocean gives you a wonderful area to read and sunbathe! All you have to do is relax and enjoy! Avon boasts many terrific restaurants, from coffee shops and family restaurants to fine dining.The Avon Pier is a very popular place where you can fish and watch the locals surf and body board. 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! Guys can go deep sea fishing and their gals can spend the day at the spa.

Gals can also go to the many fine gift shops and galleries for shopping....Studio 12 features local and NC can shop for art whether you are looking for paintings, pottery, photography, jewelry, and other unique items. Adults and children both will enjoy painting pottery, making mosaics, or glass fusion jewelry.There are also bead making shops in Avon. Lots of things to do to keep the kiddies and teenagers occupied on a rainy day or when they have had too much beach time!

The Cape Hatteras Lighthouse is located 8 miles south of Avon. It is the tallest and most famous lighthouse in America and features a gift shop. There are 2 quality museums on the island which you can browse and visit their gift shops The Native American Museum has a tremendous collection of pottery, beading, and artifacts from Native Americans from all over North America. The Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum provides an eye opening litany of the ships which have wrecked in the treacherous Diamond Shoals waters.

Okracoke Island, home to Blackbeard, the infamous pirate, is just a free ferry ride away from Hatteras Island. It is a fun day trip where you can enjoy beautiful beaches, perhaps a wild pony sighting, gourmet restaurants, and lovely gift shops.

Birdwatching at Pea Island is spectacular, especially in the fall and winter months. Migratory snow geese arrive in the thousands in the early winter.
