About Joy DeMeglio

We purchased the Tipsy Pelican in June 2013 and are so excited to share our vacation home with you. We have big plans for our little house and can't wait to have it all done. For quite a few years we have searched for the perfect home and town to finally buy. Avon provided the best location and the Tipsy Pelican is a house we felt instantly comfortable with.

Joy DeMeglio purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Joy DeMeglio chose Hatteras Island

The Tipsy Pelican is located on the perfect street, the kids have been known to ride their scooters up and down the lane into the cul-de-sac. The most beautiful beach is just a few feet away which makes it easy to go back and forth to the house if you need something. Nothing beats Dairy Queen ice cream after a long day at the beach. Walk to the end of the street you will find the only one in Avon! What a perfect way to end the night!

What makes this cottage unique

Our home is not pretentious, big or extravagant. We are trying to make it the most relaxing cottage you've ever stayed in and hopefully want to come back to. This home is a reflection of our family's attitude, that life should be about family and the time spent with them.

DELIGHTFUL Cottage By the Sea

  • 5 of 5

This is the cutest 'home away from home' we have ever experienced! We were personally welcomed by a chalkboard as we entered the cottage! How special is that? :-) The thoughtful details in every room were a special touch, for sure. The 'needs' of the vacationer were thought of before they even knew they needed it! :-) The house is beautifully decorated, bright and airy! The bonus of the screened porch which leads to the open deck is great for dogs or kids to have extra space to roam when not at the beach.

The kitchen is WELL stocked, and there is a huge refrigerator which is so nice. Not some small one that won't fit all your goodies. The cottage is just a short distance from the public access to the beach, which is very convenient.

You can certainly tell a lot of love went into making this cottage a 'home away from home' and we appreciate it! WE can't wait to go back!

Great location! Updated and perfectly decorated beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Tipsy Pelican! Perfect location. Kid friendly! Loved that the house did not have really high steep steps to multiple decks because of my kids. They were well and safely contained on the one deck and the screened in porch. The house is perfect for a family of 4 or 5. Loved it!

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

The tipsy pelican is a fantastic option for those who want a quiet relaxing getaway in the outer banks. Beautifully decorated and well stocked with amenities for families with babies and dogs. Just a 4 minute walk away to soft sandy beaches. Hope we are able to stay again!

i would stay here again!!

  • 4 of 5

We found the house very comfortable and kitchen was well stocked. Initially surprised they didn't have a propane BBQ but brickette worked well. We had some bad weather so very much appreciated satellite, internet and dvd's provided by owner. We fished off the Avon pier which was great value and entertainment for our 2 boys. Highly recommend the Ocean Air surf shop in Avon great group there. We found everyone to be very hospitable and welcoming we will definitely be back when our kids are old enough to handle the wind for windsurfing. Thank you Joy!

Supremely comfy and great location

  • 5 of 5

Four adults and a one year old have a way of really testing the limits of a home. We loved the Tipsy Pelican! Super close to the beach and very close to all of Avon's offerings. The house is lovely and a great place to call home, even if just a few too-short days. We would be thrilled to return!
