Rent this spectacular custom designed and built, three-bedroom, two bath, pet friendly home. Unique in almost every way, Salty Gator is the first home in our program ever designated as being both sound and canal front. Not impressed? To take advantage of this stunning lot located on a point in the quiet Pond Island neighborhood, TWO deep water docks on either side make this home a boater or simply water enthusiast's ultimate vacation spot. Whether your preference is fishing, kayaking, windsurfing, kiteboarding, or just a beautiful sunset to enjoy a cool evening libation, Salty Gator provides easy access right out your front and back door to best of nature the Outer Banks has to offer. A secret no more, the Albemarle Sound has long been the preferred side of the island for locals. Only when the surf is too good to ignore are most natives away from this underutilized and underappreciated part of our area.

With so much to do outside one might think this lovely, affordable 3-bedroom, 2 bath beach bungalow is just a place to lay your head after a day of adventures. You’d be wrong. Fully integrated and built to take advantage of its natural surroundings the owners of Salty Gator know even the most avid outdoorsmen and women still want the comfortable accommodations and extra amenities that turn a vacation home into a family tradition. As we continue to update pictures some of the more lavish features you will see will include stainless steel appliances, a waterfront hot tub, granite countertops, top of the line electronics including smart TVs and much more. The master bedroom comes equipped with a king while the two additional bedrooms feature a queen and two twin bunk beds and are separated by a Jack and Jill bath.

As for the location, you may have never heard of Pond Island, but if you’ve ever been to our beaches, it’s likely you have driven over it. One of our smallest islands, this little gem is located on the causeway connecting Nags Head and Manteo. Certainly not off the beaten path, but hidden from the normal hustle and bustle of the summer time traffic. As the locals say, it’s hidden for a reason. By boat the historic Manteo waterfront is a quick run across the sound. Not much further two different bridges, including the legendary Manns Harbor Bridge specifically known for its stellar striped bass fishing. Even if you’re not in the mood to cook in your custom kitchen, local institutions Lone Cedar Café and Tale of the Whale are both within walking distance and believe it or not, will prepare and serve your freshly caught fish. Lone Cedar even offers live music nightly during the summer adding yet another venue for entertainment during your visit. Unique in almost every way, come experience the Outer Banks as the locals do at Salty Gator.

Splendid views

We really enjoyed our stay at the Salty Gator. The house is still like new and well appointed. Decor was beachy, beds were comfortable, and the couch in the living room has been replaced since the photos were taken and is comfortable. We really enjoyed fishing off the pier on the sound side and lots of crab and croaker. The views were fantastic and we saw dolphins swim close to the pier a few times. I really enjoyed watching the sun set from the hot tub too. The deck furniture was adequate but it would be nice to have taller chairs so you can enjoy the views over the deck railings. Due to the proximity to the causeway there was some road noise while sitting outside, but you can’t hear it from inside the house.

Mr.

Fantastic house. Beautiful views of the sound and a canal. Great location for boaters and kayaks. This house was beautifully decorated and well appointed with everything you need. We would stay there again. All the pictures are what your getting. Only one little negative. All the furniture was beautiful but the couch is very uncomfortable. Replace the couch and you have a 100. Thanks for a great stay. The other review is 100% correct. Swim ladder has been installed.

Gorgeous!

Wow! This cottage offered everything as advertised! We are life long OBX vacationers, but this was our first time on the soundside. This cottage offered excellent views, quiet spaces and always-available fishing. We enjoyed direct access with our kayaks--although with no swim ladders on the docks (yet) getting in and out of the water was a bit challenging. We were pleasantly surprised how well stocked the kitchen was as we were the first renters. We found the family room to be a little uncomfortable, but we did not stay inside the cottage much as we enjoyed the beach and the outside areas. The concrete area under the cottage was always cool and added another great space to hang out at the cottage, in addition to the decks and porch. We saw lots of birds and dolphin, and a manatee swam right under the soundside dock when we were on it! This is a quiet neighborhood and we found the residents to be very friendly. Pond Island is indeed an OBX hidden treasure, with the Salty Gator being a great asset. Our family would definitely recommended staying here!
