About This Home

OCEANFRONT Salvo – Ocean St. Just as Hatteras Island’s sand dunes naturally protect its beautiful beaches; the serene surroundings of DOLPHINS' WATCH (formerly CHELSEA) provide a welcome respite between you and the world beyond. If you are looking for a paradise hideaway, you have found it in this beautiful six-bedroom/six-full and two-half bath home that invites you to revel in stunning coastal views from two decks that have the most oceanfront footage in town and from a ship’s watch tower perch. Be amazed by magical moments spotting dolphins in the ocean on your beds, in the great room, dining room, at the ship‘s watch tower, and on the decks!

From the ground up, DOLPHINS' WATCH artfully blends the island’s natural surroundings with amenities designed to provide a soothing and relaxing retreat. Enjoy the pleasantly warm water of an oceanside solar-heated pool and the even warmer therapeutic waters of a nearby hot tub. Two outdoor showers — one open and one private — are perfect for rinsing off the little ones before they make a splash in their special kiddie pool. For convenience, a bathroom is located on the lower level, down the hall from the laundry area and the home’s first master bedroom which features a queen, a set of bunk beds, a TV, a football table, and a full bathroom.

Four of the home’s six master bedrooms occupy the mid-level: two kings and two queens. All of these bedrooms feature TVs and direct access to an ocean-facing furnished deck, perfect for catching the moments the sun rises, a star shoots across the sky, or a fishing boat cruises by the coastline. There is also a game room on this level featuring an air hockey table, a love seat, a TV, and a Pac-Man® game machine.

The final bedroom is located on the upper level, a king master featuring a spacious ensuite bathroom with a Whirlpool tub, spacious shower, TV, and direct access to a private ocean-facing deck. …. Along with two more seats at the breakfast bar, two more seats at the bistro/pub table by the dining table, and two more seats at the bar table in the elevated sitting area. … Climb the steps to the first level of the ship’s watch tower where a full-size sofa, two rocking chairs, a bar table, and a coffee table offer another relaxing space with gorgeous expansive ocean views. Take a few more steps up to the top level of the ship’s watch and … you will discover a 360-degree view of everything that makes Hatteras Island so special and unforgettable. Work here, relax here, be inspired here, but first, you need to be here. Book DOLPHINS' WATCH to make it happen.
