Tucked away on Colony Drive in Salvo, this cozy oceanfront cottage will truly put your mind at ease. Simple yet sophisticated, Idle Minds offers 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, ocean views, and charming interior design.
Underneath the home, covered parking is available for up to four vehicles. An outdoor shower comes in handy for a quick rinse after a trip to the beach, and a charcoal grill off the back deck where everyone hangs out makes cooking out fun. There are two entry points to this cottage: one in the front, and one in the back. The front stairs lead up to a sundeck that overhangs the drive, and the back stairs lead up to a larger sundeck with a picnic table and hot tub.
As you enter the home from the front, you might not make it past the first room as a huge couch, flat screen TV, Blu-ray player, and surround sound make this a premier spot to flop down and lounge the day away. A slew of board games and movies put the icing on the entertainment cake for both kids and adults alike.
Moving into the living room, a high vaulted ceiling really opens the place up. A couple of comfy chairs are perfect for reading the morning paper in, and a lovely couch and coffee table are centered around a marvelous fireplace creating an intimate setting. Just off the living room you will find a spacious bedroom with a king bed and flat screen TV. There is a full bathroom next to this room that is accessible from the bedroom and the living room.
As you proceed to the back of the house, there is an eight-person dining room table that looks out toward the ocean through sliding glass doors. The kitchen has all matching appliances, including a cooktop stove on the island bar with bar stools, allowing you to socialize while you prepare meals. You'll find another 4 person counter height table in the breakfast nook, and back entrance leading to the sundeck and carport.
Upstairs you'll find bedrooms two and three. The second bedroom has a pyramid style bed and is connected to bedroom three by a Jack-n-Jill bathroom with a jetted tub. Bedroom three is an open loft space with a king size bed. There is a sitting area that overlooks the living room, and the bed is tucked away in the back. Off this room there are sliding glass doors that provide access to a second-level deck. From this deck you can walk up one more level to the crow's nest that offers amazing ocean views of the pristine Salvo beaches.
Idle Minds gives you that at-home feel and provides everything you need for a perfect Hatteras Island getaway. This cottage is a great fit for a small family or group and is sure to put your mind at ease the second you open the door.
