About the property

Comfy, Clean, 3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath Kinnakeet Shores Home Close To The Beach

Located along the Outer Banks Scenic Byway, close to the beach in the town of Avon, just south of one of the longest stretches of unspoiled National Seashore on the Outer Banks, this comfortable, clean, 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home in family friendly Kinnakeet Shores is ready for your beach getaway! Our home features city water, dual zone AC, recently updated furniture in the great room, and a Keurig machine for your use! With beds for eight, three decks, lots of new outdoor seating and two picnic tables for outdoor dining, this house is perfect for a relaxing vacation with family & friends. New for 2017 is the first phase of updated windows and siding, a new rear deck, and exterior paint.

Enjoy relaxing with your morning coffee on the upper deck overlooking a view of Hatteras Island. Spend your day at the large private community pool, playing tennis or just "beaching it." Walk to the beach easily in just a few minutes. Stroll for miles along unspoiled Atlantic Ocean beaches, collecting seashells and observing nature. Sit on the rear sunset deck at the end of your day and enjoy the beautiful colors in the western sky. An outdoor shower with hot and cold water will allow you a refreshing way to wash off the sand and salt as you end your day outdoors. In the evening, sit on the upper deck and feel like one with the starlit sky.

When you arrive at Sea's Calling you will enter the lower level which contains a washer and dryer for all your laundry care. The second level has two full tiled baths and three tastefully decorated bedrooms with memory foam beds. All beds are made with fresh linens for your arrival. In the first bedroom you will find a double bed and two bunks. The second bedroom has a queen bed and ceiling fan. The third bedroom, the master, has a king bed with an en suite bathroom, a ceiling fan, and its own doorway to the lower deck. Here you can enjoy a shaded area and the porch swing to read, relax, or grab some quiet time. Each bedroom has a flat screen TV and DVD player with DirecTV satellite access.

The freshly painted top level has a fully equipped kitchen and a spacious deck. Off the kitchen is a large open/vaulted area with living and dining space and a half bath. In addition to the breakfast bar seating for 3, an 8-foot farm table seats 8-10 people. The living room features comfortable furniture, all new since 2015. There is a 43 inch flat screen TV with DirecTV satellite access, Blu-Ray player and Wii system for your entertainment. TV service includes 140 TV and music channels. In addition, there are puzzles, cards, books, and family games for you to enjoy. Outdoors, there is a horseshoe pit, fish cleaning station, and a patio with grill, seating, and a picnic table. We offer free WiFi throughout the house. The famous Cape Hatteras lighthouse is only minutes away by car.

For your little ones, we have a Pack N Play, attachable booster seat with tray, and umbrella stroller. There is a safety gate at the upper deck steps and a collapsible one for inside use. There is a deck box with beach chairs, beach umbrella, chair cart, beach and pool toys. There is a cooler for your use. And if you visit during fall or winter, there is a warming electric fireplace to provide comfort and atmosphere.

Last but definitely not least, relax in the hot tub, located for all-weather use, and refresh yourself from the day’s activities. Whatever the time of day you will love it! And our service company will clean upon your departure!

About Gary and Mary Joyner

We have long held ties to the Outer Banks, and for years rented beach properties for our own OBX vacations. Having spent time in every OBX area, we feel a special affinity for Hatteras Island and the southern portion of the Outer Banks, as it remains much the same as it was when we first began visiting many years ago. We are both busy professionals and our time at the beach to decompress is treasured. Gary for years chased big game fish in his boats off the Outer Banks from the ports of Oregon Inlet and Hatteras. Now with Avon conveniently located, he loves to drive to the Hatteras docks at 4:00 and see what the fleet brought in, maybe following up with dinner while in Hatteras Village. Mary loves and enjoys the beach from sunup to sunset and we both enjoy being on the OBX all times of the year. Owning this home is the culmination of our dream for years to own a beach property. Enjoying the fresh seafood, shooting images of the natural beauty, enjoying every sunrise and sunset over the waters of the ocean and sound and sharing with friends and family all mean something special to us. Having this home in Avon to share with our guests allows us the opportunity to provide a comfortable and embracing place from which you can enjoy all the Outer Banks has to offer.

With our purchase in 2015, we began updating the home and have added several new pieces of outdoor furniture, a porch swing on the lower deck, a new grill, a new fish cleaning station, a new heat pump for fall and winter getaways, new bed linens, a new 43" flat screen TV in the living area, a new electric fireplace for the cooler months, new living room furniture, fresh paint on the upper level, and many new decorative items. During the winter of 2016/2017, we completed the first phase of replacing windows, siding and exterior paint. We will continue that process as the seasons progress, making Sea's Calling our own while providing a comfortable vacation setting for our guests.

Why Gary and Mary Joyner chose Hatteras Island

Great amenities such as the Community Pool/Tennis Courts, walking trails around neighborhood, easy beach access, and bike lanes through the village. The village of Avon is nestled within stretches of protected National Seashore, which helps preserve a special feeling of unspoiled beauty. Truly a three season location and close to the warming waters of the gulf stream offshore, Avon offers as much fun and comfort in the early spring and fall seasons as it does in the heart of summer. With proximity to the famous Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, and easy travel to the villages of Buxton and Hatteras, there are lots of things to do and see. Kinnakeet Shores is a quiet cul de sac community and is very kid and family friendly, with no through streets. Sea's Calling is an easy walk to shopping, beach access, and the community amenities area. If you fish, surf, SUP, kite surf, windsurf, kayak, or simply soak up the sun at the beach, there is something nearby to keep you engaged in your favorite activity. Sea’s Calling offers a comfortable and relaxing place to call home while at the beach. The home is close to Food Lion for groceries and various restaurants for dine-in and take-out. It is an easy walk to the Avon Pier with all its activities and fishing.

Great location and very welcoming accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at Sea's Calling! The home has more than enough ammenedies to make you feel comfortable and "at home." We travelled with our two year old son and like other have said the house has several things to help a toddler stay easier:booster seat, baby gate, pack and play, and even children's books in the bedroom!

The home is situated in a great quiet neighborhood. The location allows for a short walk to the beach and a quick drive to the pool. The house also has carts for hauling all the beach nessecities which was a huge bonus!

The location allows for quick trips to several area restaurants. The grocery store is VERY close for any needed shopping. In addition, there is a fresh seafood market as well! We are looking forward to another visit to Seas Calling.

*one thing to keep in mind the home does have several sets of steps so if someone you are traveling with struggles with steps this is not the home to choose.*

Great Getaway - Comfy, Clean, and Close to the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Sea's Calling turned out to be just right for the getaway we were looking for in the Spring.

Gary & Mary were wonderful hosts, responding promptly to any communication. They were very accommodating to the dates we requested, which allowed for a few of our (adult) children to visit us for the weekend while we were at Sea's Calling. They also allowed us to be flexible with our stay when the weather was so nice and we requested to stay an extra day!

The home is beautifully decorated, yet very comfortable with so many nice deck areas to sit - or swing - outside. The home is very well-stocked with any cooking supplies we could possibly have needed which was great, because we brought all of our own food. There is a Food Lion within walking distance (or a few minutes by car!) for anything we forgot.

We usually go to the OBX in the summer, and stay north further and beachfront, so we weren't sure how we would like this location. It turned out to be just fine - a short walk to get to the beach (with turtles & fish to look at on the way), and a nice walk to the pier. However, we mostly used the 4WD access (#38) about a mile down the road since my husband likes to fish. It allowed for us to haul our supplies in the vehicle and drive right out onto the beach and set up for fishing, reading, walking, or napping on the beach right next to our car.

We also appreciate staying here in Avon, where it's not so "built up", commercialized, or crowded (yet?). There is a lot of natural beauty, Pea Island, and also easy access to Hatteras.

We would definitely recommend Sea's Calling!

Everything and more!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Your home included everything we needed. And things we didn't even know we needed until we got there. The home was clean and very well taken care of. We traveled with a 1 year old, and I was very appreciative with all the amenities for a baby. From the playpen and stroller to the small plates, cups and bowls. The decks were amazing, the neighborhood lovely, and the walk to the beach was easy. Thank you for letting us stay at your wonderful home.
