Hear the sound of the waves as you stroll to the beach, feel the clean ocean breeze and sway in a hammock at our Avalon Beach Bungalow OBX. As our guest, you will sense the history of the "Avalon Beach" neighborhood and feel what its like to live like a local at the beach. We are just steps from the ocean, Awful Arthurs and the Avalon Pier. Imagine drifting away into a mellow mood with friends and family in the relaxing, cozy and chic bungalow.
Welcome to Live Swell Beach Bungalows where our mission is to open the doors to the laid-back surf lifestyle for guests who dream about life near the ocean + waves.
While cozy, at just under 700 sqft, the Avalon Beach Bungalow was re-designed with an open flow to provide our guests a modern coastal living experience all while maintaining its original 1950's bungalow charm.
The property is in an excellent location near restaurants, shopping, and a short (half block) walk to the beach, Avalon Fishing Pier and most OBX activities.
The spaces seems to be ideal for smaller active groups and families that like value. We stock one shed with two beach cruiser bikes, one "gorilla" pier + beach cart to make the walk to the beach easy, boogie boards, beach umbrella and a 4 burner gas grill that our guests have access to.
The kitchen features a butcher's block counter top with a tile backsplash and the essentials tools for the chef of the group. At the right time and on the right days you can open up the french doors to connect the living space directly to the covered porch. Rest and relax in the hammocks here!
We have one bathroom inside that features and an upgraded glass-enclosed shower and a multi-use shower head. Our favorite place to shower is outside in our vintage masonry enclosed outdoor shower. We upgraded it to add more privacy + a rainshower head that feels very refreshing on a hot summer days.
In the winter months our guest can enjoy the warmth of the small wood burning stove that makes this time of year to visit more special!

If your looking for a unique original OBX beach bungalow and local experience in a great beach town to relax, spend time with loved ones, chill out, cook and rest your head after the beach then the bungalow checks all the boxes.

During the right times of the year, sea turtles do nest in the beach out front, you can find large shells (like Whelks) and the surfing in the area can be epic at times - especially by the pier! The OBX is known as the east coast "Wave Magnet."
The sunset on the Sound side can be awesome!
