Waterfront, Dog-Friendly Home on the Sound w/ Private Hot Tub, Shared Pool, & AC

Love the water? Then make this beautiful Island Creek Resort condo your home-away-from-home. Located in a semi-private waterfront resort designed for active beach life, this condo is the ideal place to spend a long and relaxing getaway with someone you love. Inside, the home enjoys two levels of comfort and convenience, with lots of natural light cascading in through broad, ocean-facing windows, comfortable furniture, and plenty of space for everyone to move around in. The main level boasts an open concept that encompasses the living, dining, and kitchen areas, so you can keep up with conversation, no matter what you're up to. The full kitchen includes all the stainless steel appliances and counter space the family chef could ask for, and the dining table has seating for six dinner guests. You'll love taking your afternoon meals outside on the wrap-around deck, and you can wrap up an evening soaking in the lower-level's private hot tub. Spend the day on a hot-weather hike then cool off with a swim in the shared pool before coming back to spread out in the living room to watch a good movie or show on the living room's mounted flatscreen TV.

Set on Avon's pristine north end and accessible only by bridge, Island Creek Resort offers over 1,000 feet of shallow sound-front access. Windsurfers, kite surfers, kayakers, and kids will love this ultra-friendly location where miles of open Pamlico Sound facilitate launching, fishing, exploring, relaxing, or just horsing around in the water.

The boat ramp and docks handle small boats and personal watercraft. Acres of manicured sod keep Island Creek Resort looking and feeling good underfoot. Grab the Coppertone and head across the street to Avon's super beachfront. Spring and fall guests sing ICR's praises for board sports, while families regale in this secret spot for summer getaways. Seasoned travelers even head to ICR for their winter holidays. For parents introducing their families to the world of watersports and experts looking to perfect their kiting, windsurfing, and kayaking techniques, this is truly a resort for all seasons. Island Creek Resort, Avon. It's always better on the island.

Had to wait until 6 to get into the property for what? Beds not made, house not very clean, had to go find our towels and the gall to put a tip envelope out. Not to mention the provided sheets were stained, comforters smelled bad and pillowcases did not fit the provided pillows. House needs some updating too. Carpeting is worn and stained, marginally equipped kitchen, tubs don’t drain and water pressure is awful. Now the nice part-the views are incredible and great location to launch your all of your water toys.
Manager response:

The house and site are lovely. But there were areas for improvement. The home was not cleaned when we arrived at 8:00 PM and the old sheets were still in a pile in the driveway the next day. The home needs some attention to detail, Not enough silverware, or regular size glasses. (about 20 wine glasses though), There needs to be an update with regard to dishes. Too many non matching patterns and too few of specific kinds. The dishwasher would clean, but not dry. The element must be burned out. This means your dishes come out cold and wet, but there's no dish towels to dry them. Several fixtures had burned out bulbs. Also, there needs to be more deck chairs on the top deck. There are only two Adirondack style and they are connected to each other. These two chairs and a picnic table, which is very heavy, are all that is on the top deck. Much of this, save the dishwasher and the deck chairs, could be corrected for less than $100.00. It may seem like little things, but for the Thousands of dollars spent, the owners need to keep up with the little things to rate a "5 Star experience". It was enough that I will look for another experience next year.

This home exceeded my expectations in every way. When I booked the home I was not sure of the exact location or what to expect and I just went with it! Everything was perfect; from booking with Vacasa right up to the day we left and the app made it so easy. The Sunsets from our deck were spectacular.. they had us eating dinner every night at the house! Plenty of room for all 6 of us and the dogs! We very much appreciated the pet friendly accommodations and the dogs loved playing in the water. We had a blast on the paddle boards and kayaks, with the rental facility so close it was super convenient. The walk to the beach was swift and the beach was beautiful with clean sands and NO crowds. However, we Loved our evenings surrounded by the Pamlico Sound...and did I mention the Sunsets!! Can't say enough! Thank you Island Sun #1 for the treasured memories! See you next year!

Can't beat the location and the views. Love being right on the sound and having direct access to the water and great sunset views. The interior of the house is fine, nothing special. Everything is a little dated and could use to be updated.
Manager response:

We take guest feedback seriously and have forwarded this information to the local staff so they can review and update the home as needed for future guests. We will be sure to follow up with the appropriate parties regarding your experience. We hope to have the opportunity to host you again soon!
