More Details:

The Sea Forester is located at 41742 Oceanview Drive in Avon, NC, which is located 170 feet from a beach boardwalk, providing a direct 2 minute walk to the beach. The house has 3 levels containing 4 bedrooms and 2 ½ baths. The main deck combined with an elevated observation deck, provide for endless views of the Atlantic Ocean and Pamlico Sound. Plenty of parking is available on the wide concrete drive for vehicles and a boat/trailer.

The house is conveniently located within walking distance to Hatteras Island’s largest shopping center, containing a Food Lion, beach stores, and many restaurants. Our property is available for rent on a weekly basis ONLY from Saturday to Saturday. We are unable to accommodate partial week rentals and renters under the age of 25.

First Level

The entry door is on the landing under the house, which always allows for a dry entrance for the occasional rainy day. This first level has an air hockey table and space for storage.

Second Level

The second floor has a recreation room with a foosball table, TV, stereo, sink, refrigerator, and microwave. Additionally, all four bedrooms and two full baths are located on this level. There is also a washer and dryer.

Third Level

The open concept of the top floor is designed perfectly for family gatherings. The large family room flows into the dining room and kitchen area. This area has cathedral ceilings and many large windows, allowing for ample lighting. Located off of the family room is a florida room with a hot tub for your enjoyment. Sliding glass doors lead to the deck area facing the Atlantic Ocean, providing a great view. Continue to relax and enjoy the great weather on the deck furniture, including chairs and tables. We recommend ending your great beach day with a delicious meal and drink on the deck taking in the views and sounds of Avon. The observation deck will provide for memorable sunrises and sunsets, with occasional views of Diamond Shoals Light Tower or passing ships.

Located adjacent to the main door, the enclosed outdoor shower is perfect for rinsing off all the sand tracked home from the beach. The fish cleaning station can handle the largest of catches. A park grill (charcoal) and table are conveniently located for your outdoor cooking needs.

About Dan Neal

Manager’s information:

We have been coming down to the Outer Banks since the early 1960’s and made my first camping visit to Hatteras Island in the 1970’s. Also loving to fish, the waters surrounding the Hatteras Island area provide many opportunities to catch all types and size fish. After years of camping along the Outer Banks, our family finally purchased a house on Hatteras Island and named it the Sea Forester in 1995. Over the years we have added onto/updated the house to meet our changing needs. We plan to continue this process for the rest of the time we own the house. We truly enjoy our family time down here and now retired, spend more time on Hatteras Island. As we always say, when life gets too hard, visit Hatteras Island; this always seems to cure and help resolve most problems. I certainly hope your visit becomes a memorable stay.

Dan Neal purchased this house in 1995

Property will not be available until around May 1, 2018. Season ends October 2018.

A1 - Fantastic place to spend a family vacation. Doesn't get any better than this !!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family & I throughly enjoyed every minute of our stay at this house on the ocean. All the amenities you could ever ask for and the view of the ocean was great upper & lower deck. Enjoyed all the games that are supplied by the owner, air hockey, foosball, poker table, and numerous board games. This property was also very conveniently located in Avon near a Food Lion and various restaurants. All we needed to bring with us was towels and buy our food. Everything else was supplied by the owner. Can only say great things about this place and my family & I are planning to return for future vacations.

Thank you Mr. Daniel Neal

Great family vacation spot

  • 4 of 5

We drive down from Maryland and had a great week in the Sea Forester with family. It was quiet enough for the parents and lively enough for the kids. Beach access just across the way and beautiful views from the top decks.

Our first family vacation in Avon North Carolina. Had an absolutely fantastic time enjoyed the house

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at the Sea Forester. The house was nice and spacious. The ocean view was spectacular. Bathrooms were very clean and beds were made. However the kitchen was not clean. Sticky Fingerprints on the cabinets, counter and table as well as some food was found between the refrigerator and the cabinet.

Owner's Response: Craig, I am sorry that you found problems in the kitchen!! I will address this with the cleaning contractor, hopefully avoiding anything like this in the future!! I'm glad that the rest of the house was clean. Additionally, it sounds like your over all experience was good. Again thanks for taking the time to review the house and bringing this issues to my attention, Sincerely, Dan Neal

Great house and location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Avon and we Loved it! The house suited our family of 7 perfectly (w/ kids ages 5-15). Enjoyed amenities in house (game table, fooseball and hot tub). Kitchen provided everything we needed. Loved the crows nest and great view of beach from the deck. Short walk to the beach! Convenience of grocery store and restaurants within short drive or walking distance! Great Location since it was quieter and not as commercialized as Nags Head. The house also included gym membership and pier access which was a nice plus that the kids enjoyed. We would definitely come here again!
