We were in search of a quiet beach getaway and Salvo did not dissapoint! We particularly enjoyed the soothing sound of the ocean and star gazing during our stay. The night sky is AMAZING here. No light pollution makes for wonderful night sky photography opportunities.

Very comfortable clean beach house with semi ocean front views. Loved the decks, hot tub and pool. The house is well stocked and met our every need. There is a little hike to beach access and crossing the dunes can be difficult - but well worth any effort. Almost like having our own private beach. Beautiful star-lit sky and a... More

Once again thoroughly enjoyed the fabulous waves of the Outer Banks. Not overcrowded & relatively clear water. Good for an easy-going vacation. As most would say, the biggest bummer was the traffic onto & off of the island.

The Salvo beach was a changing world in and of itself! While we frequented it mostly during the day and enjoyed the salt breezes and the sand between our toes, the surf, shells, crabs, and sea birds, we also realized that it was something entirely different at night, with the magnificent star show and crab performers.
