“Disappointing!”
Reviewed September 7, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

First of all, the pictures on the Surf or Sound website are misleading. They are obviously not up to date. This house is not Semi-oceanfront! The living room picture shows a beautiful beach view. Guess what? There are two more houses blocking that view now! This house is in the third row of houses, that is not Semi-oceanfront!
The house was dirty, dirty, dirty! The floors were filthy. The pool table was filthy. The media room had food stuck in the chairs. We had to clean the floors before we could put anything down!
Both dishwashers were full and dirty! The cabinets were so dirty, we didn't dare put anything in them. The stove only cooked on high and there were dangerous wires dangling underneath.
The tables were sticky. The chairs in the Captain's Watch were stained and dirty.
The gate at the steps was broken.
Both washers had such a strong mold smell, I was afraid to use them! Plus, one handle was broken.
The tv's in the Media and great room were on 480i. There were big signs saying not to touch the set up, so we were stuck with a blurry picture!
The bar area outside was disgusting and full of bugs. The hot tub cover was disintegrating into the water.
We paid so much money for such a dump!
We learned a great lesson though, ask if the photos are up to date before renting!

Our family LOVED THE OUTER BANKS, the SALVO area AND STAYING AT YELLOW FIN!!! First, the location is incredible. You are basically paying for a semi-ocean front house, but the truth is... Yellow Fin is just steps away from the dunes/ocean. This house had everything: extremely pet friendly (we brought two dogs), huge bedrooms and bathrooms, an elevator, pool table, deck with bar, grill and private pool. There are balconies that wrap around the house, so you can sit and face the ocean (night or day).

The Salvo area was perfect for us as well...we wanted a secluded beach vacation. It is not that touristy or crowded. But, you are still within a short driving or walking distance to restaurants and a small grocery store. We went during 4th of July and we still felt like we had the secluded beach adventure we were looking for. We were able to walk to the beach and watch the fireworks at night. The beaches are clean, vast and picturesque. The town has plenty to do, but really if you are there to relax...then this is the spot for you.

We absolutely loved it! We do want to go back! I highly recommend this house and location!

Traveler Tips:
Order a Steamer Pot to Go and have your own clambake!
Eat at Dirty Dick's Crab House (the best)
Take a tour of the lighthouse and old Coast Guard station
Visit Rodanthe Pier
